This study was to evaluate the effects of an interdisciplinary intervention on food consumption, body composition, lung function and adipokines in obese asthmatic and non-asthmatic adolescents and to investigate the influence of nutrients on lung function. Obese non-asthmatic (n=42) and obese asthmatic (n=21) adolescents of both sexes participated this study. Was evaluated food intake, adiponectin, leptin and C-reactive protein, body composition, asthma symptoms and lung function. The interdisciplinary intervention had the duration of one year and the team consisted of nutritionists, psychologists, physiotherapists, physic...

Abstract We investigated the relationship between living in a household that receives the Brazilian Income Transfer Program (Bolsa Família, in Portuguese - BF), a Brazilian conditional cash transfer program, and aspects of health and whether these relationships are heterogeneous across the 27 Brazilian states. According to data from the 2013 Brazilian National Health Survey, 18% of households participated in BF. Among households with household per capita income below BRL 500, many aspects of health differed between people living in BF and non-BF houses. For example, BF households were less likely to have me...
