The effect of lottery prizes on physical and mental health

In this audio from Andrew Clark of the Paris School of Economics talks to Romesh Vaitilingam about his research on the relationship between income and health, which examines changes in the health and health behaviours (smoking and drinking) of British people who win prizes in the national lottery.

And for what its worth, if you win money on lottery you smoke and drink more! Just don't tell the health fascists, they will want to do away with lotteries.
