- Low IQ does not kill: Swedish study (13 Jul 09)
- Caesarean delivery can alter DNA: study (29 Jun 09)
- Fewer Swedes feeling lonely: study (23 Jun 09)
The results come from a study encompassing nearly 450,000 men and women born in Sweden between 1973 and 1977.
“Our results show that life at school provides an important basis for psychic health later in life,” said Anders Hjern, a professor of pediatric epidemiology at Uppsala University hospital and the National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen), to UNT.
The results of the study are published in the latest issue of the International Journal of Epidemiology medical journal.
