One of my recent articles on the relationshionship between fatalistic beliefs and healthy habits has received quite a bit of media attention. Read for instance the MedlinePlus or ISHN coverage.

Link to the full article: Cobb-Clark, D., Kassenboehmer, S., Schurer, S. (2012). Healthy habits: What explains the connection between diet, exercise, and locus of control? IZA Discussion Paper 6789.

Here is a link to a Youtube video in which I talk about my research and the above mentioned paper:
