The overall aim of the Health2010-14 is to monitor the prevalence and trends of common chronic diseases (osteoporosis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, asthma, allergy, and eczema) that are often un-diagnosed in the general population as well as biomarkers of micronutrient status. Specific aims include identification of novel lifestyle and genetic risk factors for the above diseases by investigating gene-lifestyle interactions.
Over a 5-year period a series of population-based studies are carried out including a total of up to 10,000 persons aged 18-69 years selected from the general population of Copenhagen, Denmark. The study also include a follow-up of a previous population study (the Health2006). Participants complete questionnaires on health, lifestyle, and social factors and undergo a health examination including measurements of metabolic biomarkers, allergy tests, anthropometric measures, bioimpedance, biomarkers of micronutrients, spirometry.

Unexpected rapid natural death due to cardiovascular collapse within one hour of initial symptoms. It is usually caused by the worsening of existing heart diseases. The sudden onset of symptoms, such as CHEST PAIN and CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS, particularly VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA, can lead to the loss of consciousness and cardiac arrest followed by biological death.
