Abstract
OBJECTIVES
We examined the associations between happiness and a wide range of health behaviors in South Korean adolescents.
METHODS
Study data were derived from the ninth Korea Youth Risk Behavior Web-based Survey administered from June to July 2013. In addition to happiness levels, the questionnaire included items on sociodemographics and health-related lifestyle factors (smoking, drinking, eating breakfast, fruit and vegetable consumption, physical activity, sedentary behavior, and hours of sleep).
RESULTS
The multivariate analysis revealed that higher levels of happiness were associated with not smoking or drinking, eating breakfast, eating fruits daily, vegetable consumption, participating in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, avoiding sedentary behavior, and hours of sleep. Additionally, sex differences were found in relationships between happiness and eating fruit daily, participation in physical activity, and sedentary behavior.
CONCLUSIONS
These results encourage public health professionals to consider the psychological aspects of adolescent life in working to improve their health behaviors and outcomes.

본 연구는 청소년건강행태온라인조사결과를 활용하여 청소년들의 주관적 행복수준이 여러가지 건강행동과 관련이 있는지를 살펴보았다. 자신이 행복하다고 느끼는 청소년들은 흡연, 음주, 좌식생활을, 그렇지 않다고 느끼는 청소년들보다 더 적게 하고 있었고, 이와 반대로 아침식사, 채소과일섭취, 신체활동, 충분한 수면은 더 많이 하고 있었다. 성별로 보았을 때는, 주관적 행복인지수준과 과일섭취, 신체활동, 좌식생활에 각각 남녀 차이가 있었다. 이러한 결과를 통해 청소년들의 건강행동 증진을 위해서는 이들의 행복인지능력을 강화하는 노력을 할 필요가 있음을 알 수 있었다.

Abstract
OBJECTIVES
Little attention has been paid to levels of trust in online sources of health information. The objective of this study was to investigate levels of trust in various sources of health information (interpersonal channels, traditional media, and Internet media), and to examine the predictors of trust in health information available on the Internet.
METHODS
A questionnaire was administered to 1,300 people (20 years of age or older), evaluating levels of trust in various sources of health information.
RESULTS
The highest level of trust was expressed regarding interpersonal channels, with hospital physicians regarded as the most trusted source of information age and income showed an association with trust in online information sources. Elderly people were not likely to trust Internet news sources, and high incomes were found to be strongly associated with trust in online sources of information overall.
CONCLUSIONS
Public health organizations must consider the predictors for trust in various sources of information in order to employ appropriate media when targeting vulnerable individuals or developing messaging strategies for health professionals.
