Benefits of long-term RCAF study continue

The Manitoba Follow-up Study (MFUS) is one of the longest health research studies in the world, if not the longest. After 70 years, it is still producing useful data.

    July 31, 2018 by Sharon Adams
    The profession of arms is hard on hearing. The roar of engines, thunder of artillery, ear-splitting shrill of sirens, high hum of an engine room, jackhammering of weapons fire, piercing clang of metal on metal—even the joyful sound of instruments in a marching band—take a toll...
