More bed sharing, baldness and vitamin C: Most read articles in June


The most-read article in June was once again Carpenter et al‘s article on bed sharing with non-smoking parents and the risks of SIDS, which received widespread press coverage. Another popular title was Yamada et al‘s paper on the associations between male pattern baldness and coronary heart disease. Other newly-published papers in the top ten include Hemilä et al‘s study on the way in which vitamin C may help alleviate exercise induced bronchoconstriction and Ford et al‘s study of current treatments in diabetic macular ordema.
