Defining the role of common variation in the genomic and biological architecture of adult human height
TLDR
The results indicate a genetic architecture for human height that is characterized by a very large but finite number of causal variants, including mTOR, osteoglycin and binding of hyaluronic acid. Expand
Comparison of body mass index, waist circumference, and waist/hip ratio in predicting incident diabetes: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
Although the clinical perspective focusing on central obesity is appealing, further research is needed to determine the usefulness of waist circumference or waist/hip ratio over body mass index, demonstrating that these three obesity indicators have similar associations with incident diabetes. Expand
DETERMINANTS OF VARIATION IN ADULT BODY HEIGHT
TLDR
Past studies on body height that have followed different scientific traditions in auxology are reviewed to create a more holistic view of body height. Expand
Heritability of adult body height: a comparative study of twin cohorts in eight countries.
TLDR
The results indicate that, in general, there are only minor differences in the genetic architecture of height between affluent Caucasian populations, especially among men. Expand
Occupational, commuting, and leisure-time physical activity in relation to risk for Type 2 diabetes in middle-aged Finnish men and women
TLDR
Moderate and high occupational, commuting or leisure-time physical activity independently and significantly reduces risk of Type 2 diabetes among the middle-aged general population. Expand
Factors contributing to sense of coherence among men and women.
TLDR
Although sex differences were small, the association of living without a partner with low SOC was stronger among men than women, and psycho-emotional resources rather than socio-economic circumstances were associated with SOC. Expand
Emotional eating, depressive symptoms and self-reported food consumption. A population-based study
TLDR
The findings suggest that emotional eating and depressive symptoms both affect unhealthy food choices, and emotional eating could be one factor explaining the association between depressive symptoms and consumption of sweet foods, while other factors may be more important with respect to non-sweet foods and vegetables/fruit. Expand
Heritability of body size and muscle strength in young adulthood: a study of one million Swedish men
TLDR
It was showed that genetic factors affect muscle strength and part of these genes are common to different strength indicators and body size and that extra variation may exist in general populations not found in twin samples. Expand
The effects of physical activity and body mass index on cardiovascular, cancer and all-cause mortality among 47 212 middle-aged Finnish men and women
TLDR
Regular physical activity and normal weight are both important indicators for a decreased risk of mortality from all causes, CVD and cancer. Expand
The Three-Factor Eating Questionnaire, body mass index, and responses to sweet and salty fatty foods: a twin study of genetic and environmental associations.
TLDR
The relation between BMI and diet appears to be mediated through dieting behaviors, and dietary counseling should focus on unhealthy dieting behavior rather than only on direct advice on food use. Expand
