Physical activity growth curves relate to adiposity in adolescents
Abstract: We describe physical activity trajectories during secondary school and examine the association with change in adiposity in youth aged 12-13 years at baseline. Physical activity was measured in 20 survey-cycles ...
Factors that could explain the increasing prevalence of type 2 diabetes among adults in a Canadian province: a critical review and analysis
Abstract: Background: The prevalence of diabetes has increased since the last decade in New Brunswick. Identifying factors contributing to the increase in diabetes prevalence will help inform an action plan to manage the ...

Other titre : Relationships between physical activity across lifetime and health outcomes in older adults: Results from the NuAge cohort
Abstract: Objectives: This study aims to (1) describe participation in four physical activity (PA) domains across life and (2) examine the influence of PA during adolescence, early, mid-life, and later adulthood on health ...
A tale of two models: changes in psychological need satisfaction and physical activity over 3 years

Abstract: Measuring physiological dysregulation during aging could be a key tool both to understand underlying aging mechanisms and to predict clinical outcomes in patients. However, most existing indices are either circular ...
Aging across the tree of life: the importance of a comparative perspective for the use of animal models in aging
Abstract: Use of model organisms in aging research is problematic because our ability to extrapolate across the tree of life is not clear. On one hand, there are conserved pathways that regulate lifespan in organisms ...
Guidelines for assessment of gait and reference values for spatiotemporal gait parameters in older adults: The biomathics and canadian gait consortiums initiative
Abstract: Background: Gait disorders, a highly prevalent condition in older adults, are associated with several adverse health consequences. Gait analysis allows qualitative and quantitative assessments of gait that improves ...
