A few new entries are included in August’s Top 10 Most Read as well as some popular articles from previous months. New entries include Thienpont et al‘s paper on euthanasia requests among psychiatric patients and Elwyn et al‘s paper on the motivations of patients to record their clinical encounters, measured by a mixed-methods analysis of survey data. A Mendelian randomisation meta-analysis from Morris et al aimed to investigate whether heavier smoking is associated with abdominal adiposity phenotypes, concluding that smoking in an effort to control weight may lead to accumulation of central adiposity. Rao et al‘s paper on exploring the relationship between alcohol consumption, health, ethnicity and socioeconomic deprivation was also popular this month.
