Why are the health measurements useful?

Adding health measurements to the information we already have in BCS70 gives us a unique opportunity to really understand your lives in depth. They will allow us to answer many more questions about the health of people in your age group including questions about some of the most significant health issues affecting society today. For example, by asking you about your working hours and testing your blood pressure, we can see if the two are related. Many people find taking part in studies with health measurements a useful moment to reflect on their health and lifestyles.
