In this journal we have published many papers showing effects of economic downturn on health. But does economic downturn have long term effects on health? Using historical economic data, linked to a health survey comprising 11 European countries, Hessel and Avendano show that exposure to economic downturn at ages 40–49 is associated with poorer health in older ages, possibly by increasing risk of unhealthy behaviors and low incomes persisting into older age. While disappointing that effects of unfortunate decisions and measures cannot easily be reversed, it gives impetus for the public health community to warn against economic constraints and measures that particularly affect vulnerable groups.
