Because fat distribution differs among different races, the relationship between WC and lung function in Asian children may differ from that in White children. The present study aimed to examine the effect of WC on ventilatory function in Chinese children. METHODS A cross-sectional study was performed on 1572 healthy… CONTINUE READING
