The intervention attenuated an increase in %BF and a decrease in CRF among girls at risk for obesity from baseline to postintervention. Offering the after-school PA club 2 d/wk may be adequate for achieving outcomes. Source: Sage Publications April 2020
Longitudinal study suggests that the perinatal period may be a critical time-period where living closer to green spaces may lower hypertension risk in adulthood, but not obesity. Analysis by type of green space suggested that parks may be more relevant than playgrounds, cemeteries or golf courses. Source: Science Direct March 2020
