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

    Författare :Patrik Wennberg; Jan-Håkan Jansson; Mai-Lis Hellénius; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; lifestyle factors; physical activity; commuting activity; leisure time physical activity; occupational physical activity; snuff use; haemostatic markers; inflammatory markers; myocardial infarction; epidemiology; primary prevention.; Family medicine; Allmänmedicin; Family Medicine; allmänmedicin;

    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

  2. 2. Assessment of active commuting behaviour : walking and bicycling in Greater Stockholm

    Författare :Erik Stigell; Peter Schantz; Andreas Nilsson; Maria Hagströmer; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; walking; cycling; commuting; validity; reproducibility; distance; duration; velocity; frequency; seasonality; Sports; Idrott; Samhällsvetenskap Humaniora; Social Sciences Humanities; Sports Science; Idrottsvetenskap;

    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. 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

    Författare :Jane Salier Eriksson; Peter Schantz; Hans Rosdahl; Jostein Hallén; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Heart rate; Oxygen consumption; Validity; Reproducibility; Oxycon Mobile; Douglas Bag Method; Cycle commuting; Walking commuting; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    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

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

    Författare :Undis Englund; Ulrika Pettersson Kymmer; Peter Nordström; Gustaf Bucht; Karl Obrant; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; physical activity; bone density; neuromuscular function; fragility fractures; women; Geriatrics and medical gerontology; Geriatrik och medicinsk gerontologi; Geriatrics; geriatrik;

    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. 5. 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
