Diet and health


Ludbrook, A., Smith, M.D.(HERU) and Sutton, M. (University of Manchester)


This project used data from the Scottish Health Survey to investigate relationships between self reported consumption of various food items and measures of obesity. The dietary information in the Scottish Health Survey only covers selected items. Dietary patterning approaches were used to attempt to map complete dietary intake data from the UK National Diet and Nutrition Survey onto the Scottish Health Survey data.
