Association of Accelerometer-Measured Sedentary Time and Physical Activity With Risk of Stroke Among US Adults

Importance The amount and intensity of physical activity required to prevent stroke are yet to be fully determined because of previous reliance on self-reporting measures. Furthermore, the association between objectively measured time spent being sedentary as an independent risk factor for stroke is unknown. Objective To investigate the associations of accelerometer-measured sedentary time and physical …

Prospective Analyses of Sedentary Behavior in Relation to Risk of Ovarian Cancer

To examine the association of sedentary behavior with risk of ovarian cancer overall, by tumor subtype, and by participant characteristics in the Nurses’ Health Study (NHS) and NHSII. A total of 69,558 NHS (1992-2016) and 104,130 NHSII (1991-2015) participants were included in analysis who reported sitting time at home, work, and watching television, which included …

Association of Daily Sitting Time and Leisure-Time Physical Activity With Survival Among US Cancer Survivors

Objective To examine the independent and joint associations of daily sitting time and leisure-time physical activity with mortality outcomes among cancer survivors. Design, Setting, and Participants A prospective cohort of a nationally representative sample of cancer survivors, age 40 years or older (n = 1535; weighted population, 14 002 666), from the US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey …

#Pain and fatigue are longitudinally and bi-directionally associated with more #sedentary time and less standing time in #rheumatoid arthritis

The aims of this study were to examine the longitudinal and bi-directional associations of pain and fatigue with sedentary, standing and stepping time in RA. Methods People living with RA undertook identical assessments at baseline (T1, n = 104) and 6-month follow-up (T2, n = 54). Participants completed physical measures (e.g. height, weight, BMI) and routine clinical assessments to …

Longitudinal Associations of Midlife Accelerometer Determined #Sedentary Behavior and Physical Activity With #Cognitive Function: The CARDIA Study

To determine if accelerometer measured sedentary behavior (SED), light‐intensity physical activity (LPA), and moderate‐to‐vigorous–intensity physical activity (MVPA) in midlife is prospectively associated with cognitive function. Participants were 1970 adults enrolled in the CARDIA (Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults) study who wore an accelerometer in 2005 to 2006 (ages 38–50 years) and had cognitive …
