Body-Mass Index in 2.3 Million Adolescents and Cardiovascular Death in Adulthood.
TLDR
A BMI in the 50th to 74th percentiles, within the accepted normal range, during adolescence was associated with increased cardiovascular and all-cause mortality during 40 years of follow-up, and overweight and obesity were strongly associated with increase cardiovascular mortality in adulthood.
Adolescent BMI trajectory and risk of diabetes versus coronary disease.
TLDR
An elevated BMI in adolescence--one that is well within the range currently considered to be normal--constitutes a substantial risk factor for obesity-related disorders in midlife, supporting the hypothesis that the processes causing incident coronary heart disease and diabetes are more gradual than those resulting in incident diabetes.
Association between carriage of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus in Children.
TLDR
Streptococcus pneumoniae carriage, specifically of vaccine-type strains, is negatively associated with S aureus carriage in children in the prevaccination era in young children.
Overweight in Adolescence Is Related to Increased Risk of Future Urothelial Cancer
TLDR
This study suggests an avenue for possible prevention of urothelial cancer among Israeli adolescents examined for fitness for military duty between 1967 and 2005 byUsing Cox proportional hazards modeling to estimate the covariate‐adjusted hazard ratio (HR) for urothalial cancer associated with BMI measured at age 17.
White Blood Cells Count and Incidence of Type 2 Diabetes in Young Men
TLDR
WBC count, a commonly used and widely available test, is an independent risk factor for diabetes in young men at values well within the normal range and men at the lowest WBC quintile were protected from diabetes incidence even in the presence of overweight, family history of diabetes, or elevated lipid levels.
Measured Body Mass Index in Adolescence and the Incidence of Colorectal Cancer in a Cohort of 1.1 Million Males
TLDR
Adolescent overweight is substantially associated with colon cancer incidence in young to middle-aged adults and these long-term sequelae add to the urgency to seriously address increasing childhood and adolescent obesity with its attendant increasing population impact.
White Blood Cell Count and the Risk for Coronary Artery Disease in Young Adults
TLDR
WBC count is an independent risk factor for CAD in young adults at values well within the normal range and may assist in detecting subgroups of young men at either low or high risk for progression to CAD.
Association between body mass index, body height, and the prevalence of spinal deformities.
TLDR
An association between height and the risk for spinal deformities by severity was found for all height groups, whereas above-normal BMI apparently has a protective effect and body height is also positively associated with the severity of spinal deformity.
Progression of Normotensive Adolescents to Hypertensive Adults: A Study of 26 980 Teenagers
TLDR
BP at adolescence, even in the low-normotensive range, linearly predicts progression to hypertension in young adulthood and this progression and the apparent interaction between BP at age 17 years and BMI at adolescence and at adulthood are sex dependent.
Different effects of long-term exposures to SO2 and NO2 air pollutants on asthma severity in young adults
TLDR
There was a significant dose-response effect on severity of asthma at ambient concentrations below the current National Ambient Air Quality Standards, and the risk of asthma occurrence was significantly higher than that in residential areas with high levels of NO2 and intermediate levels of SO2.
