Cohort studies

Adventist Health Studies

Adventist Health Studies (AHS) is a series of long-term medical research projects of Loma Linda University with the intent to measure the link between lifestyle, diet, disease and mortality of Seventh-day Adventists. Seventh-day Adventists have a lower risk than other Americans of certain diseases, and many researchers hypothesize that this is due to dietary and other lifestyle habits.This provides a special opportunity to answer scientific questions about how diet and other health habits affect the risk of suffering from many chronic diseases. Two studies on Adventist health involving 24,000 and 34,000 Californian Adventists were conducted over the last 40 years.Although not sponsored by the Adventist church itself, the church is supportive of the studies.These studies have been the subject of significant national media coverage on programs such as ABC News: World News Tonight, Good Morning America and in the National Geographic feature article "Longevity: The Secrets of a Long Life". There is a third larger ongoing study that includes Adventists throughout the United States and Canada. (Wikipedia).
