Interesting research

Don’t you hate when you read an interesting study and then when you go back you can’t find it? No, well I do, so I keep this page as a resource for studies which I think are cool or interesting, or which I don’t want to lose. Feel free to comment with anything I should add.

Economics

Women who work in science, technology, engineering and math jobs have a lower wage gap (compared to men) that average workers, a US based study

Psych health

non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs could lower the effectiveness of antidepressants [early results, rat models and human correlations]

 

Obesity

No excess mortality in overweight people

Long term outcomes of weight lost dieting/exercise a meta analysis

“The results for very-low-energy diets(VLED)s and hypoenergetic balanced diets(HBD)s, respectively, were as follows: weight-loss maintenance, 7.1 kg (95% CI: 6.1, 8.1 kg) and 2.0 (1.5, 2.5) kg; percentage weight-loss maintenance at 4 or 5 year follow up”

I twins where one dieted and one didn’t, those who dieted ended up heavier than those who did not.
