1. During this longitudinal study, 3 consistent trajectories of picky eating were noted: persistently low, persistently medium, and persistently high. 2. Reduced picky eating habits were associated with female gender, greater child emotional stability and control, higher BMI, lower restriction behavior, and less demanding behavior. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown:...
1. In a systematic review, awake prone positioning (tummy time) in healthy infants was positively associated with total development, gross motor development, decreased body mass index (BMI), prevention of brachycephaly, and ability to move while prone, supine, crawling, and rolling. 2. These results support the World Health Organization’s (WHO) recommendation...
1. The combination of liraglutide and lifestyle therapy was shown to significantly reduce body mass index (BMI) standard-deviation score compared to the placebo group. 2. The use of liraglutide as adjuvant therapy was shown to cause a higher frequency of gastrointestinal adverse events. Evidence Rating Level: 1 (Excellent) Study Rundown: Obesity is a chronic...

1. Children aged 2 to 6 years with actigraphy scores indicating short sleep duration or late sleep onset exhibited greater increases in body mass index (BMI) z-score. Late sleep was also associated with greater increases in waist circumference. 2. There was a combined effect between high family obesity risk and...
1. Increases in body mass index (BMI) were associated with all-cause mortality among the Hispanic population included in this prospective study. 2. Abdominal adiposity was found to be a particularly strong major risk factor for premature death within this population, even after adjustment for BMI and hip circumference. Evidence Rating Level:...
Patients with colorectal cancer (CRC) are 2-4 times more likely to develop cardiovascular disease, as compared to individuals without a history of cancer. With survival rates increasing significantly over the last 4 decades, this has important implications in patients that are now more susceptible to competing causes of morbidity...
Association between incidence exposure to benzodiazepines in early pregnancy and risk of spontaneous abortion Previous studies have shown that benzodiazepine use in early pregnancy is associated with spontaneous abortion (SA). The association between specific benzodiazepines and the risk of SA, however, has not been investigated. In this nested case-control study...
1. Exclusive breastfeeding in the first 3 months of life, as opposed to mixed breast and bottle feeding and exclusive bottle feeding, was associated with lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol and lower total cholesterol in adolescence. 2. There was no association between exclusive breastfeeding and body mass index (BMI) or...
1. This prospective cohort study found that both low physical fitness and obesity during adolescence is associated with increased risk for disability later in life. 2. Obesity during adolescence, measured through body mass index (BMI), was found to be the greatest predictor of all-cause disability later in life for Swedish...
