  • Socioeconomic factors and a history of morbidity had a greater influence on body composition than low birth weight in schoolchildren born at term. (scielo.br)
  • In Northeast Brazil, a birth cohort has been followed since 1993, providing the opportunity to conduct the present study in this age range, in an attempt to determine the influence of LBW on body composition at 8 years of age in children born full-term, with low or appropriate birth weight (ABW), after adjusting for socioeconomic factors, maternal nutritional status, and past medical history.

  • Family history of PrCa was associated with a 4.9-fold increased risk of PrCa (95% CI 1.0 - 24.8). (biomedcentral.com)
  • Our results highlighted the advanced clinical characteristics of PrCa in Nigerian men, and that family history of PrCa and some anthropometric factors were associated with PrCa risk in this population. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Family history of PrCa among first-degree relatives is associated with a significant, 2- to 3-fold increased risk of PrCa [ 10 , 11 ], and both early ages at diagnosis and multiple affected family members are strong predictors of risk in relatives. (biomedcentral.com)
  • To detect the risk factors pre-transplantation the following variables were compared: age or receptor, time in dialysis, glycemia figures, cholesterol and triglycerides, body mass index (BMI), infection for hepatitis C and a family history of diabetes and post-transplantation variables included immunosuppressive treatment, dose of steroids at third month post-transplantation, cyclosporine A levels and presence or not of rejection. (sld.cu)
  • The pre-transplantation variables were categorized in a suitable way for univariate and multivariate analysis where they were statistically significant, in the univariate study: the largest time in dialysis, the great age of recipient, the high figures of pre-transplantation glycemia, the positive to Virus C, body mass index higher than 25 and family history of diabetes, this latter factor was the only with statistic representativeness in multivariate analysis. (sld.cu)
  • This analysis confirmed associations between both modifiable risk factors (parity, body mass index and use of oral contraceptives) and non-modifiable risk factors (family history of breast cancer, age and menopausal status) with breast cancer. (waocp.org)
  • Most patients have personal and/or family history of atopic diseases. (cmj.org)
  • One thousand one hundred and forty-four (43.0%) patients had a personal and/or family history of atopic diseases. (cmj.org)
  • This correlation remained significant after adjusting for confounding factors including body mass index, age at menarche, Physical activity, smoking, family history, and taking contraceptives and estrogen. (waocp.org)
  • We examined the relationship between breast cancer family history and mammographic breast density. (springer.com)
  • The odds of having dense breasts were 17% greater for women with affected 1st degree relatives than women with no family history. (springer.com)
  • Having a family history of breast cancer was more strongly associated with mammographic breast density when the affected relatives were more genetically similar. (springer.com)
  • Since there are genetic components that influence breast cancer risk and breast density, it is reasonable to hypothesize that having a family history of breast cancer may be associated with greater breast density. (springer.com)
  • The purpose of this study was to examine the association between having a family history of breast cancer and breast density among 35,019 postmenopausal women with detailed information on the number and type of 1st and 2nd degree relatives with breast cancer. (springer.com)
  • We evaluated the association between 1st and 2nd degree family history of breast cancer, number of relatives with breast cancer, age at diagnosis for affected relatives, and having dense breasts. (springer.com)
  • Family history did not affect the association between weight gain and risk for type 2 diabetes. (acpjc.org)
  • Based on The Phelps Family in America, a family history published in 1899 by Oliver Seymour Phelps and his son-in-law, Andrew T. Servin, many researchers mistakenly believed that William Phelps and a brother, George Phelps, both emigrated from Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, England in 1630, to the New World. (wikipedia.org)
  • physical
  • The pooled associations of physical activity and colorectal cancer risk for the low and high body mass index groups were 0.74 (95% CI = 0.66-0.83) and 0.65 (95% CI = 0.53-0.79), respectively (p heterogeneity = 0.389). (biomedcentral.com)
  • Overall, a stronger relative risk of physical activity on colorectal cancer risk was observed in the higher body mass index group, although the difference was not statistically significant, suggesting an added benefit of physical activity as a cancer prevention strategy in population groups with strong risk factors for colorectal cancer.

  • Measures taken should consider a multilevel intervention that includes the family, school, and physical environment. (scielosp.org)
  • Descartes' practical philosophy also proposed a dualism between the mind and the physical body, based on the belief that they are two distinct substances. (wikipedia.org)
  • In undeveloped countries the ability to afford food, high energy expenditure with physical labor, and cultural values favoring a larger body size are believed to contribute to the observed patterns. (wikipedia.org)
  • reproductive choices, energy balance, adult weight gain, body fatness, voluntary and involuntary physical activity, medical care, exposure to tobacco smoke and alcohol, and occupational exposures, including shift work" as well as "metabolic and physiologic processes that modify the body's internal environment.

  • Within the context of a theological anthropology-an analysis of the nature of man in his relation to God-the Theology of the Body presents an interpretation of the fundamental significance of the body, and in particular of sexual differentiation and complementarity, one which aims to challenge common contemporary philosophical views.

  • At 8 years of age, the body composition of 213 children from this cohort was assessed by measurement of triceps and subscapular skinfold thickness and mid upper arm circumference. (scielo.br)
  • These data suggest that the consequences of intrauterine growth restriction on body composition persist beyond the period of accelerated growth in early postnatal life. (scielo.br)
  • There is a dearth of published studies assessing body composition at school age by means of body fat and lean mass percentages. (scielo.br)
