Editor's Choice: Tobacco control policy development in the European Union: do political factors matter?
‘As the Bosdriesz paper describes, it appears too easy for proven tobacco control measures, such as the levying of sin taxes, to be manipulated into populist resistance that neither left nor right can ignore.... In order not to fall prey, the discipline of public health must be able to engage in such debates without exposing itself to "nanny-state" accusations’.

Trends in young people's health and social determinants

View the latest European Journal of Public Health supplement on 'Trends in young people's health and social determinants', guest edited by Emmanuel Kuntsche, Bjørn E. Holstein and Ulrike Ravens-Sieberer.

This supplement aims to provide evidence on various aspects of young people's health, wellbeing and related factors, allowing the reader to get an overview of prevalence changes across countries for selected outcomes, e.g. fruit and vegetable consumption, overweight, injury-related mortality and morbidity, physical activity, parental communication, bullying, early sexual intercourse and condom use, weekly alcohol consumption and the co-occurrence of tobacco and cannabis use, and life satisfaction, just to name a few of the outcomes included. The supplement also offers examples of how time trends can be interpreted and explained when dealing with perceived school pressure and health complaints.
