Purpose and participation
This project aims to investigate how what we buy, and thus our diet, affects health, by analyzing purchase patterns and health information over time. It is hoped that in the long run, the project will lead to new knowledge about the impact of our lifestyle on health, which could lead to better opportunities to prevent diseases.
In the project, researchers will investigate connections between our health and what we eat, drink, lubricate ourselves with, inhale, or are otherwise exposed to throughout our life. Researchers can achieve this by linking information on shopping habits and information on health and diseases from registries or other research projects. Examples of the use could be studies of the relationship between what we buy, and the risk of contracting a disease such as salmonella or getting an exacerbation of diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, or diabetes.
In short, we hope to find out what to buy or not to buy to stay healthy, whether you are healthy or have contracted a chronic illness. This will take time so you can at any time see short descriptions of all projects where data from the project is used on mineindkob.dk under the tab projects.
The purpose of this form is to help you decide if you want to transfer information about your purchases to researchers, along with the information needed to make this possible. We expect that it will only take you a few minutes to read the form and participate in the project.
Participation is completely voluntary and any medical treatment will not be affected by whether you participate or not.
There is no health risk associated with the project. On the other hand, we expect that the project, in will be able to benefit you in the long run, through better advice about your health.
You must be over 18 years old and have a NemID to participate.
You can transfer your data whether you are healthy and well, have just recovered from an illness, or have one or more illnesses. You have the option to limit the use of data to a single project if you wish. As there is often more than one shopper in a household, we hope that both you and possibly other people in your household will participate.
We will ask you some questions at the end of this form, to ensure that we have explained the project properly to you.
