1. Higher frequency, intensity, and duration of physical exercise linked to lower risk of chronic pain in Norwegian University students Evidence Rating: 3 (Average) Chronic pain is estimated to impact around one-third of the population, and is a leading cause of disability worldwide. There has been mixed evidence on the link...
1. Prognosis of heart disease patients is associated not only with their exercise capacity, but also the type of exercise protocol used Evidence Rating: 2 (Good) Exercise testing is a common prognostic measurement used to assess heart disease patients. Exercise capacity, which represents oxygen uptake during exertion, is measured in units...
Physical exercise associated with reduced risk of chronic pain in university students 1. Higher frequency, intensity, and duration of physical exercise linked to lower risk of chronic pain in Norwegian University students Evidence Rating: 3 (Average) Chronic pain is estimated to impact around one-third of the population, and is a leading cause...
While numerous studies have previously examined associations between physical activity and mortality, cardiovascular disease and certain cancers, the majority of this evidence has been cross-sectional, single-timepoint data, or has relied on a single baseline physical activity assessment for correlation. Few studies have examined physical activity trajectories over time, and...
Ultra-processed food intake and risk of cardiovascular disease: prospective cohort study (NutriNet-Santé) The consumption of ultra-processed food has increased substantially over the last several decades. These foods often have higher proportions of total and saturated fat, added sugar, energy density and salt, and lower proportions of fibre and vitamin density....
1. In this cross-sectional study, the prevalence of sitting watching television or videos for at least 2 hours per day remained stable over a 15-year period. 2. Computer use during leisure-time increased among all age groups, and total sitting time increased among adolescents and adults. Evidence Rating Level: 3 (Average)        Study Rundown:...
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that individuals participate in at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity, as part of the prevention of chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and several cancers. Nearly one third of adults, however, fail to meet these recommendations. Sedentary...
Effect of Exercise Intervention on Functional Decline in Very Elderly Patients During Acute Hospitalization: A Randomized Clinical Trial After acute hospitalization, elderly patients are often unable to recover to their preadmission functional status. This single-center randomized controlled trial aimed to investigate the effects of an exercise intervention initiated during hospitalization...
1. Based on this randomized controlled trial, very elderly patients admitted to an acute medical ward who underwent an intervention of regular, moderate intensity exercise demonstrated a reduction in hospital associated functional decline. 2. There were no adverse outcomes among those patients who underwent the exercise-based intervention. Evidence Rating Level: 2...
1. In this study of the patterns of physical activity in adolescents and young adults, young age, white race, and higher income were all associated with greater physical activity. 2. Among those who were active, black males aged 18-24 years reported the longest period of physical activity per day, while...
