OBJECTIVES: Previous studies showed inconsistent results regarding the association between season of birth and dementia later in life. Evidence has mainly come from developed countries with relatively homogeneous geographical features. In this study, we examined the association between season of birth and dementia among Chinese elderly as well as geographical region-specific and urban/rural-specific patterns. METHODS: We utilized data from the Second China National Sample Survey on Disability in...

OBJECTIVES: To compare total and regional body fat percent (BF%) measurements obtained using a handheld electrical impedance myography (EIM) device in comparison to BF% measured by dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). METHODS: Sixty-nine male and female (33 males/36 females; age = 21.9 +/- 2.0 years, body mass index = 24.5 +/- 3.6 kg/m(2) ) college-age individuals participated in this study. Each participant's total and regional (ie, upper arms, upper legs, trunk) BF% was estimated using EIM and DXA...

OBJECTIVE: This study describes the distributions of body mass index (BMI) and movement behaviors among schoolchildren from 13 countries across a continuum of human development. METHODS: Data were from a cross-sectional study of 9-11-year-old children (n = 8055) recruited from 269 urban schools in 13 countries, and an additional 7 rural schools in one of these countries (Mozambique). BMI was derived from objectively measured heights and weights. Moderate- to vigorous-intensity physical activity ...
