Adverse childhood experiences and physiological wear-and-tear in midlife: Findings from the 1958 British birth cohort
The results indicate that early psychosocial stress has an indirect lasting impact on physiological wear-and-tear via health behaviors, BMI, and socioeconomic factors in adulthood.
Mediating pathways between parental socio-economic position and allostatic load in mid-life: Findings from the 1958 British birth cohort.
The idea that early life socioeconomic position (SEP) can be biologically embodied, potentially leading to the production of health inequalities across population groups is examined.
Early socioeconomic conditions and severe tooth loss in middle‐aged Costa Ricans
The lifecourse model allowed to highlight that early socioeconomic conditions could have long-term consequences on severe tooth loss in middle ages via both direct and indirect mechanisms.
Socioeconomic inequalities in cancer mortality: Is Costa Rica an exception to the rule?
The findings confirmed the importance of conducting studies in middle‐ Income countries, since the socioeconomic and cultural contexts are different from those in high‐income countries, which influence the social distribution of lifestyles and risk behaviors.
Disentangling the respective roles of the early environment and parental BMI on BMI change across childhood: A counterfactual analysis using the Millennium Cohort Study.
It is highlighted that if every child's environment was at its most favourable, the mean BMI would be significantly reduced, and the recent rise in children's BMI is likely to be reversible.
Social inequality in incidence and mortality of malignant neoplasms of lip, oral cavity and pharynx: Is Costa Rica an international paradox?
The study found that people who lived in the most socioeconomically disadvantaged areas had lower probabilities of developing LOP cancers than people in the richest districts, contradicting the existing literature.
