A healthy lifestyle leads to better well-being and longevity.
Our everyday habits have a significant effect on the way our genes manifest themselves, how they affect our well-being, and when and how disease develops, in simple terms, how we live our life.
We need your help to understand what your genes say, interpreting lifestyle changes in the time since you began participating in the GCAT.
We are very interested in finding out about lifestyle changes, changes to diet and exercise since you joined the GCAT programme and whether you have suffered any health problems during this period.
- Why a follow-up round? As we mentioned, in this study we want to analyze health and disease prospectively, over the coming years. We are very interested in assessing your current state of health as your eating habits, lifestyle or exercising habits may have changed since you agreed to take part in the study. This follow-up is essential to the research since daily habits significantly affect the way in which genes express themselves and how a disease develops.
- Who is this follow-up aimed at? This first follow-up round is aimed at all volunteers who have been enrolled to the study.
- How is this follow-up round executed? You just need Internet access. You can complete the questionnaire provided from any platform (mobile, tablet, desktop computer). You do not need to travel to the blood and tissue bank. Access will be unique, personal and confidential. You will be able to complete it at various times, in order to make your task easier and improve the accuracy of the answers.
- How can you complete the follow-up without a computer or Internet at home? From GCAT we will send you by email or mail a unique identifier through which you can access with complete confidentiality. You can use any device with internet connection of yours, of a relative, public library, etc. and access the questionnaire with your custom identifier.
