1. In this pragmatic, randomized clinical trial, exercise or a multifactorial fall prevention strategy did not significantly affect fracture rates in the elderly 2. Exercise was cost effective at improving strength and top-level balance Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Study Rundown: The elderly are at high risk of falls. Prevention of falls...
Association between antipsychotic use and acute ischemic heart disease in women but not in men: a retrospective cohort study of over one million primary care patients 1. There was a moderate association found between antipsychotic use and acute ischemic heart disease found in women, but not men. Evidence Rating Level: 2...
1. Higher amounts of weekly physical exercise were associated with better carotid-to-femoral pulse wave velocities but not with carotid distensibility, which are both markers of arterial stiffness. 2. Diabetic patients may benefit from a more profound correlation between physical exercise with carotid-to-femoral pulse wave velocity. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Arterial stiffness...
1. Reduced physical activity as a result of COVID-19 related restrictions may be associated with higher levels of stress and anxiety. 2. Relationships between perceived activity level, stress, and anxiety are confounded by genetic and environmental factors in addition to age and sex. Evidence Rating Level: 2 (Good) Due to the Covid-19...
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:...
