Abstract The main objective of this study was to identify the association between combined effect of physical activity, reduction of screen time and overweight in adolescents.

Physical activity was measured using the short-version IPAQ (International Physical Activity Questionnaire), and screen time was verified through two questions about the time that, on average, interviewees watched television, played video games, used the cell phone or computer on a normal weekday and one weekend day...

The objective of this study was to correlate anthropometric, BIA and DXA parameters among obese Brazilian adults with focus on the comparison with visceral adipose tissue (VAT) obtained from DXA and in the value of antropometric measurements. Fifty voluntary participants were enrolled. The Spearman correlation test was used to assess the correlation of VAT with anthropometric measurements, BIA and other DXA parameters. The intra-class correlation coefficient (ICC) was used to evaluate concordance between lean mass (LM), fat mass (FM), %body fat (%BF) and %upper body fat (%UBF) obtained from BIA and DXA. Most were female (8...

This article aimed to systematically review the association between socioeconomic status according to the life course models and the body mass index (BMI) in adults. A review was performed following the guidelines of the PRISMA. The studies were identified in the MEDLINE/PubMed, LILACS and Web of Science databases. The eligible articles investigated the association between at least one life course model (risk accumulation, critical period or social mobility) and BMI. In order to assess the quality of the selected articles, the NOS checklist was applied to each study. Eleven articles were selected for the systematic review,...

ChuaObesity is a neurological disorder that operates by favoring energy storage within adipose depots and increased caloric intake. Most cases of human obesity are acquired without any underlying genetic basis. Here, we suggest that obesity can impair the function of some hypothalamic neurons critical to body weight regulation. Genetic ablation of the retinoblastoma (Rb) gene within pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) neurons leads to death of the neurons and subsequent obesity. The Rb pr...
