PURPOSE Today's youths spend close to 60% of their waking hours in sedentary activities; however, we know little about the potentially deleterious effects of sedentary time on bone health during this key period of growth and development. Thus, our objective was to determine whether sedentary time is associated with bone architecture, mineral density, and strength in children, adolescents, and young adults. METHODS We used high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (Scanco… CONTINUE READING
