Health in central Europe


Gutzwiller, Felix (1991). Health in central Europe. Annals of Nutrition & Metabolism, 35(Suppl. 1):64-68.

Abstract

Some of the 11 central European countries enjoy today a high level of health, among the highest life expectancies worldwide and, concomitantly, low or intermediate risk factor levels for some of the major chronic diseases. However, on a regional level, and particularly according to social groups, important differences in risk, morbidity and mortality still remain. Perhaps the most dramatic differences now found relate to east-west differences within Europe. This paper addresses these issues drawing upon examples such as cancer of the colon and coronary heart disease.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
