Study examines impact of major life events on wellbeing

Sydney [Australia], June 3 (ANI): In a person's life, the major life events such as marriage, death of a loved one or bankruptcy all affect our wellbeing. Now, for the first time, researchers have compared the differing impact of these events on happiness and life satisfaction and how long that impact lasts. The study recently published in the journal 'SSM - Population Health' examined 18 major life events, and how they affected a sample of 14,000 Australians between 2002 and 2016. The data was taken from the HILDA survey, which examines the social, health and economic conditions of Australian households using face-to-face interviews and self-completion questionnaires. The study based on the differential impact of major life events on cognitive and affective wellbeing was conducted by auth...

Gradual easing of lockdowns might be better for global economy: Study

London [UK], June 6 (ANI): Owing to the coronavirus crisis, many countries across the world are under lockdown. A new study has revealed that a cautious approach to easing lockdown restrictions that reduces the risk of later lockdowns may be better for the global supply chain in the long run. The study led by researchers at the UCL and Tsinghua University was published in the journal Nature Human Behaviour. This is the first peer-reviewed study to comprehensively assess potential global supply chain effects of Covid-19 lockdowns, modelling the impact of lockdowns on 140 countries, including countries not directly affected by Covid-19. The study found that stricter lockdowns imposed earlier - such as the two-month lockdown imposed in China - are economically preferable to more moderate lock...

Study analyses differential impact of major life events on people’s well being

Sydney [Australia], June 6 (ANI): Major life events such as marriage, childbirth, bankruptcy are known to affect one's wellbeing. However, for the first time, researchers have analysed the differing degree these events hold, which can eventually impact one's happiness and life satisfaction.

Study reveals thyroid dysfunction in pregnancy being overdiagnosed, overtreated

Calgary [Canada], June 1 (ANI): The current practice of testing most pregnant women for thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) may be leading to overdiagnosis and overtreatment, according to new research conducted in Canada. The research was published in the CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal). The study of more than 188 000 women in Alberta found that TSH testing was performed in more than half (111 522 or 59%) of all pregnant women who did not have thyroid disease before pregnancy. Testing was most commonly done around gestational week 5-6. "The practice of TSH testing early in the first trimester may be resulting in overdiagnosis and unnecessary thyroid hormone therapy during and after pregnancy," writes Dr. Lois Donovan, an endocrinologist at the Cumming School of Medicine, Universi...

Homosexual, bisexual older adults at higher risk for substance use: Study

New York [USA], June 2 (ANI): Middle-aged and older adults, who identify as homosexual or bisexual, have higher rates of using certain substances in the past year than those who identify as heterosexual, suggests a new study. The study was led by researchers at NYU Grossman School of Medicine and the Center for Drug Use and HIV/HCV Research (CDUHR) at NYU School of Global Public Health. The study is published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine. These findings are consistent with prior studies showing that LGBTQ adolescents and young adults are more likely to use a range of substances compared to their heterosexual counterparts. Such use may be attributed to minority stressors, including discrimination, oppression, and stigma. However, further research is needed into the likely com...

Study links early life education to improved memory in old age, especially among women

Washington D.C. [USA], June 5 (ANI): Early life education plays a major role, especially for women in their old age, helping them protect against memory loss, according to a recent study. The results suggest that children, especially girls who attend school for longer, will have better memory abilities in old age. This may have implications for memory loss in Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. The study was conducted by investigators at Georgetown University Medical Center and was published in the journal Aging, Neuropsychology, and Cognition. The study tested declarative memory in 704 older adults (58-98 years of age). Declarative memory refers to our ability to remember events, facts, and words, such as where you put your keys or the name of that new neighbour. Participants were sh...

Temperament issues can develop unhealthy eating habits in children: Study

Washington D.C. [USA], June 7 (ANI): Kids who are temperamental, generally equated with characteristics like anger, and mood swings are likely to be more prone to develop an unhealthy relationship with food and eating habits, according to a recent study. The study was conducted by researchers from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). Temperament is often equated with anger, but it embraces much more. Temperament is the child's fundamental way of dealing with his environment and himself. It can be regarded as a precursor to what is called personality in adults. A new study shows that the child's own characteristics also play a role in the development of eating habits. Researchers investigated the topic as part of the Trondheim Early Secure Study (TESS) project, which i...
