What is LifeLines?

LifeLines is a large group of individuals (in total 165.000) who are included in a cohort study. Those individuals live in the northern provinces of the Netherlands and will be followed for up to 30 years. Participants were included between 2006 and 2013 by their general practitioners. At baseline all individuals filled in questionnaires and underwent a basic physical examination. The questionnaires cover topics like demographics, family composition, lifestyle, diet, health perception. The basic physical examination includes blood pressure management, pulmonary function tests, ECG, and a neuropsychiatric interview. Every year, individuals will fill in questionnaires and every five years, they will underwent a physical examination. From the individuals a large amount of biomaterial is stored, think of blood, hair, stool, and urine. All those material are stored in a large biobank. The aim of this study is to investigate the role of nature and nurture in the development of chronic diseases.
