1. 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
Sammanfattning : Walking and bicycling to work, active commuting, can contribute to sustainable mobility and provide regular health-enhancing physical activity for individuals. Our knowledge of active commuting behaviours in general and in different mode and gender groups in particular is limited. LÄS MER
3. The heart rate method for estimating oxygen uptake in walking and cycle commuting : Evaluations based on reproducibility and validity studies of the heart rate method and a portable metabolic system
Sammanfattning : Walking and cycling to work can contribute to population health, but more objective knowledge concerning exercise intensities, oxygen uptake and the metabolic demands of this physical activity is needed for this and other evaluations. To attain this, valid and reliable instruments are a requirement. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Scandinavia has among the highest incidence of fragility fractures in the world. The reasons for this are unknown, but might involve differences in genetic and/or environmental factors, such as sunlight exposure and levels of physical activity. LÄS MER
5. Impacts of Active Transport on Health : with a focus on physical activity, air pollution, and cardiovascular disease
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
