Severalstudies have described the benefit of lifestylechange for healthy ageing and cognitive improvement. For example smoking, alcohol consumption and a lack of physicalactivity have been linked to an increased rate of cognitive impairment and cardiovascular diseases. Studies investigating lifestyle factors have been limited by cohort sampling bias, cross sectional designs, short follow‐ups and small sample sizes. Furthermore the frequencyand intensity of lifestylealteration is still not defined. In this projectwe examine a 20 year longitudinal dataset to determine the influenceof lifestyle (i.e. alcohol consumption, smoking, diet and physical activity) on morbidityand quality of life in health and ageing.
This projectwill involve direct hands-onparticipant evaluation. You will also have the opportunity to work with a rich databasewith lifestyle data that spans over 20 years. There will be the opportunity for publication.
