  2. 2. Impacts of Active Transport on Health : with a focus on physical activity, air pollution, and cardiovascular disease

    Författare :Wasif Raza; Johan Nilsson Sommar; Bertil Forsberg; Benno Krachler; Otto Hänninen; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Health impact assessment; Air pollution; Active commuting; Exercise; Interaction. Cardiovascular diseases; Ischemic heart diseases; Stroke; Public health; folkhälsa; Occupational and Environmental Medicine; arbets- och miljömedicin;

    Sammanfattning : Background: There are increasing number of health impact assessment studies investigating the health effects by transferring trips made by motorised transport to active commuting; however, air pollution exposure during active commuting and its impact on health has been less thoroughly assessed. It is furthermore uncertain whether there is any interaction effect between air pollution and physical activity for the risk of cardiovascular diseases. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Studies on bikeability in a metropolitan area using the active commuting route environment scale (ACRES)

    Författare :Lina Wahlgren; Peter Schantz; Henrik Gustafsson; Pekka Oja; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; active transport; bicycle commuting; bikeability; multiple linear regression analysis; perception; reliability; route environment; validity; Sports; Idrott; Idrottsvetenskap; Sports Science; Samhällsvetenskap Humaniora; Social Sciences Humanities;

    Sammanfattning : Background: The Active Commuting Route Environment Scale (ACRES) was developed to study active commuters’ perceptions of their route environments. The overall aims were to assess the measuring properties of the ACRES and study active bicycle commuters’ perceptions of their commuting route environments. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Beyond the established risk factors of myocardial infarction : lifestyle factors and novel biomarkers

    Sammanfattning : Age, male sex, hypertension, smoking, diabetes, dyslipidaemia, and obesity are considered as established risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. Several of these established cardiovascular risk factors are strongly influenced by lifestyle. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Physical activity, bone density, and fragility fractures in women

    Författare :Undis Englund; Ulrika Pettersson Kymmer; Peter Nordström; Gustaf Bucht; Karl Obrant; Umeå universitet; []
