Handelsblatt: The crisis affects the health of the Greeks

The severe economic crisis in Greece has a dramatic impact on the health of its people

"The crisis is affecting the health of the Greeks," is the title of today's article in the German financial newspaper Handelsblatt referring to a recent study by the University of Cambridge.

As it notes, "the heavy economic crisis in Greece has a dramatic impact on the health of its people. This is proven from a survey released Thursday by a research team around sociologist Alexander Kentikelenis.

Already earlier research had shown that the number of suicides in Greece increased between 2007 and 2011 by 45%. The problem is probably only the tip of the iceberg, Kentikelenis, who teaches at the University of Cambridge, said. The researcher and his team also found that the number of children born dead rose by 21%. (...). "
