Community attitudes to gene technology – Report of a 2015 survey conducted by Instinct and Reason  Fulltext


The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare has released a new web report on 19 April 2016:

Chronic disease risk factors

This AIHW analysis presents the relationship between selected chronic diseases and behavioural and biomedical risk factors. Behavioural risk factors include poor diet, tobacco smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. Biomedical risk factors include overweight and obesity and high blood pressure. The analysis shows that many chronic diseases share behavioural and biomedical risk factors; and modifying these can reduce an individual's risk of developing a chronic disease and result in large health gains, by reducing illness and rates of death.
