And Now for some news ….
Fast Food Physical Activity and Adiposity in Mid-Life
Obesity is strongly linked to a range of chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and contributes substantially to excess morbidity, mortality, and rising health-care costs globally.
The authors of a recent study published in the journal, The Lancet, examined whether neighborhood exposure to fast-food outlets and physical activity facilities were associated with adiposity in UK adults.
The authors examined whether density of physical activity facilities and proximity to fast-food outlets were associated with waist circumference, body-mass index (BMI), and body fat percentage.
The authors used multilevel linear regression models adjusted for potential confounders, and conducted several sensitivity analyses.
This study shows strong associations between high densities of physical activity facilities and lower adiposity for adults in mid-life.
The authors observed weaker associations for access to fast food, but these are likely to be underestimated owing to limitations of the food environment measure.
Policy makers should consider interventions aimed at tackling the obesogenic built environment.

Multisite Peripheral Joint Pin
Research into musculoskeletal conditions often focuses on pain at single sites, such as the knee, yet several studies have previously reported the high prevalence of multiple sites of musculoskeletal pain.
The most common form of musculoskeletal condition is arthritis, with osteoarthritis (OA) the most common cause of joint pain in adults 45 years and over.
However, there is limited recognition of the prevalence of multisite peripheral joint pain in those either living with or at risk of OA, therefore a recent study, published in the journal BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, set out to estimate the prevalence of multisite peripheral joint pain in adults 45 years and older, and its impact on several dimensions of health.
The study concluded that multisite peripheral joint pain is prevalent in the population in adults 45 years and over and has a significant negative impact on several dimensions of health.
Health care professionals should consider joint pain beyond the index site in order to address holistic management.
