Child obesity rates 'levelling off'

Child obesity rates 'levelling off' | Anthropometry and Kinanthropometry | Scoop.it

The rise in childhood obesity, which has left one in three UK children overweight, may be beginning to level off in the under-10s, a study suggests.


There was a steady rise in the proportion of overweight children between 1994 and 2003, but in the past decade it has remained at about 30%.


The King's College London researchers add obesity rates among 11- to 15-year-olds are still rising, however.

The "ideal" woman's body type has taken on a number of forms over the past 3,000 years. In ancient Egypt, it was slender shoulders and a narrow waist; during the Italian Renaissance, it was a round stomach and fair skin; in the 1980s, it wa...

Olivia Klenda's curator insight, December 9, 2014 9:49 PM

Stanford students explain the pressures athletes feel to be fit and look thin. There is also an incredible info graphic with a lot of great information  and statistics. It is inspiring that college aged women are trying to inform the public about eating disorders and what we can do to help others.

Howard Schatz's Athlete series explores many different variations of the human physique. We get to see bodybuilders with rippling muscles, bone-thin marathon runners, towering long-jumpers and massive wrestlers – all side-by-side. It's striking because it taps into the same focus on physical human beauty that ancient Greek sculptures and modern advertisements do.

US waists 'grow an inch in a decade'

US waists 'grow an inch in a decade' | Anthropometry and Kinanthropometry | Scoop.it

US waistlines are continuing to expand, despite obesity appearing to be reaching a plateau, data suggests.

 

Research suggests the average adult waist size in the US increased by more than 1in (2.5cm) between 1999 and 2012.

 

But figures for obesity as defined by body mass index (BMI) had changed little over the same period, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.

Fat shaming 'leads to weight gain'

Fat shaming 'leads to weight gain' | Anthropometry and Kinanthropometry | Scoop.it

Making people feel ashamed about obesity could lead them to gain weight, not lose it, suggests University College London.

 

In a study of nearly 3,000 adults over four years, those who said they had experienced weight discrimination put on more weight than those who did not.

 

Researchers said there was no evidence discrimination caused weight gain, but it could lead to comfort eating.

 

Health professionals were urged to be more supportive.

 

The study, in the journal Obesity, looked at data from adults aged over 50 ranging from normal weight to obese who had taken part in the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing.
