This week in PLoS Medicine: Preventable risk factors; CONSORT 2010; and more!

Read the new papers published in PLoS Medicine this week, including a Research Article that examine the contribution of a set of risk factors (smoking, high blood pressure, elevated blood glucose, and adiposity) to socioeconomic disparities in life expectancy among Americans and another Research Article that shows that the replacement of dietary saturated fatty acids with polyunsaturated fatty acids reduces coronary heart disease events.

Also published this week, a Guidelines and Guidance piece that introduces the 2010 version of the CONSORT Statement, which updates the previous version of the reporting guidelines based on new methodological evidence and accumulated experience.

You can comment on, annotate, and rate this week’s PLoS Medicine articles and any of the others in the archive.
