Estimating African American admixture proportions by use of population-specific alleles.
Significant nonrandom association between two markers located 22 cM apart (FY-null and AT3) is detected, most likely due to admixture linkage disequilibrium created in the interbreeding of the two parental populations, emphasize the importance of admixed populations as a useful resource for mapping traits with different prevalence in two parental population.
Waist circumference percentiles in nationally representative samples of African-American, European-American, and Mexican-American children and adolescents.
Caloric Restriction Delays Disease Onset and Mortality in Rhesus Monkeys
Findings of a 20-year longitudinal adult-onset CR study in rhesus monkeys aimed at filling this critical gap in aging research demonstrate that CR slows aging in a primate species.
Microarray data analysis: from disarray to consolidation and consensus
In just a few years, microarrays have gone from obscurity to being almost ubiquitous in biological research, and points of consensus are emerging about the general approaches that warrant use and elaboration.
Body mass index as a measure of adiposity among children and adolescents: a validation study.

Years of life lost due to obesity.
Obesity appears to lessen life expectancy markedly, especially among younger adults, and Marked race and sex differences were observed in estimated YLL.
Impact of caloric restriction on health and survival in rhesus monkeys from the NIA study
A separation between health effects, morbidity and mortality, and similar to what has been shown in rodents, study design, husbandry and diet composition may strongly affect the life-prolonging effect of CR in a long-lived nonhuman primate is suggested.
Primary care physicians' attitudes about obesity and its treatment.
Primary care physicians view obesity as largely a behavioral problem and share the authors' broader society's negative stereotypes about the personal attributes of obese persons but view obesity treatment as less effective than treatment of most other chronic conditions.
