This issue of CSP has a fascinating outlook, beginning with the article What Are the Causes of Death of Patients with Tuberculosis: Multiple Causes of Death in a Cohort of Cases and a Research Proposal of Presumed Causes, the Editors' choice. The Editorial was written jointly by Bierrenbach AL & Selig L at our request. Many thanks!
In the Perspectives section, our Associate Editor Mário Scheffer discusses the implications of opening to foreign capital under the Constitutional Amendment recently approved by the Brazilian Congress. The author states clearly: "By imposing the financing of individual Congressional amendments on the Federal government and conditioning Federal expenditure on current net revenue, Constitutional Amendment 358 will lead to a decrease in funds when compared to the amount guaranteed by the prevailing legislation, which is already too restrictive" (p. 663).
Two review articles illustrate the journal's varied profile: one on physical exercise and cancer and the other on caffeine intake during pregnancy and ADHD. The latter article points to the lack of a standardized definition for ADHD, which the Editors see as conducive to a highly questionable diagnosis, and which in turn has led to the dangerous medicalization of children.
The difficulties of qualitative research and its quality are analyzed in an article, one of whose co-authors is Prof. Cecília Minayo, Editor-in-Chief of the journal Ciência & Saúde Coletiva
Violence, traffic accidents, social capital, Alzheimer's disease, and the health of firefighters and bank employees comprise the varied contents of this issue of CSP. Enjoy the reading!
