Caesarean sections and for-profit status of hospitals, the link between diet and mental health, and the effect of weight discrimination on physical activity
The Top 10 Most Read articles in March showed great variety in topics and study types. In the top spot this month is a systematic review and meta-analysis by Hoxha et al discussing the association of for-profit status of a hospital and the odds of a woman having a caesarean section. Nguyen et al, at number four, undertake a cross-sectional study to investigate the association between fruit and vegetable consumption and the prevalence of psychological distress in middle-ages and older Australians, finding that there is potential for increased fruit and vegetable consumption in helping to reduce psychological distress. Reaching number seven this month is a study looking at the association between perceived weight discrimination and physical activity, by Jackson and Steptoe of UCL. At number eight this month we see a clinical trial comparing flucloxacillin with clindamycin to flucloxacillin alone for the treatment of limb cellulitis, while at number ten we have a pilot study carried out to inform the design of a future trial to determine the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a pharmacist-delivered medicines reconciliation service.
