The most read article in July was Heneghan and colleagues’ analysis of sports performance products, which received widespread press attention and was also accompanied by a BBC Panorama special. The second most read paper, Katzmarzyk and Lee’s life table analysis of life expectancy and sedentary behaviour, also received large amounts of press coverage both in Europe and the US. Kripke et al‘s study of hypnotics and mortality remains highly read, and is still in the top three some five months after its publication.
