Socioeconomic conditions across life related to multiple measures of the endocrine system in older adults

Socioeconomic conditions across life related to multiple measures of the endocrine system in older adults

Socioeconomic conditions across life related to multiple measures of the endocrine system in older adults: Longitudinal findings from a British birth cohort study

Conclusions

Lower SEP [Socioeconomic position] was associated with an adverse hormone profile across multiple endocrine axes. SEP differences in endocrine function may partly underlie inequalities in health and function in later life, and may reflect variations in biological rates of ageing. Further studies are required to assess the likely functional relevance of these associations.

(The Open Access funded by Medical Research Council comment feels like a crumb from the table... Though the fact of open access is indeed welcome.)

At the risk of being political (absolutely NOT intended to be party political - more observational):

Marat we're poor

And the poor stay poor

Marat don't make us wait any more

We want our rights and we don't care how

We want a revolution

Now
