The Obesity Epidemic

The Obesity Epidemic

This video explains the many factors that have contributed to the obesity epidemic, and showcases several community initiatives taking place to prevent and reduce obesity. Obesity is a national epidemic and a major contributor to some of the leading causes of death in the U.S., including heart disease, stroke, diabetes and some types of cancer. We need to change our communities into places that strongly support healthy eating and active living.

Exercise is Medicine®: The Importance of Connecting Fitness with Healthcare

Exercise is Medicine®: The Importance of Connecting Fitness with Healthcare

The Larry Golding Keynote Exercise is Medicine®: The Importance of Connecting Fitness with Healthcare, at the 2017 ACSM Health & Fitness Summit was presented by Robert E. Sallis, M.D., Kaiser Permanente, Fontana, CA.
The broad ranging health benefits of regular physical activity cannot be denied and it is clear that exercise is a powerful medicine that should be prescribed by healthcare providers to all their patients. To help make this happen, a Physical Activity Vital Sign (PAVS) should be used in all patient encounters and fitness professionals should become part of the healthcare team to design exercise regimens for patients. This lecture outlines a plan to make this an actionable reality – after all, Exercise is Medicine (EIM).

Mitochondria control of physiology and disease: beyond ATP

Mitochondria control of physiology and disease: beyond ATP

Air date: Wednesday, March 7, 2018, 3:00:00 PM

Category: WALS – Wednesday Afternoon Lectures

Runtime: 00:57:53

Description: NIH Director’s Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series

Historically, mitochondria have been primarily viewed as biosynthetic and bioenergetic organelles that generate metabolites for the production of macromolecules and adenosine triphosphate (ATP), respectively. The work of the Chandel laboratory has elucidated that mitochondria have a third distinct role whereby they release reactive oxygen species (ROS) and metabolites to regulate transcription factors and epigenetics. For his lecture, Dr. Chandel will present his lab’s ongoing efforts to understand how mitochondria, in addition to producing ATP, regulate cancer and immunity.

Exercise intensity perceptions in active people – Video abstract [ID 63496]

Exercise intensity perceptions in active people – Video abstract [ID 63496]

Video abstract of an original research paper “People who perceive themselves as active cannot identify the intensity recommended by the international physical activity guidelines” published in the Open Access Journal of Sports Medicine by Prokop, Hrubeniuk, Sénéchal, et al.

Background: Many national and international organizations recommend that adults achieve at least 150 minutes of aerobic physical activity (PA) weekly, at a minimum moderate intensity to optimize health benefits. It is unknown if people who consider themselves as active have the ability to identify what is considered moderate intensity.

Methods: Fifty-one participants who reported achieving a minimum 150 minutes per week at a minimum of moderate intensity PA were recruited through a local fitness facility. All participants underwent a single assessment involving questionnaires, clinical measures, and a treadmill test to measure the ability to perceive moderate intensity. Following the visit, participants’ PA level was evaluated by heart rate monitor, while exercising, for 7 consecutive days.

Results: Eighty percent of participants overestimated moderate intensity on the treadmill test; they were at vigorous intensity compared to what is considered moderate. Only 11.8% of participants accurately identified moderate intensity; all of them were women (P=0.03), had a high level of education (P=0.04), and knew that moderate intensity was the minimum intensity recommended by health organizations (P,0.01). Only 69.2% of participants reached the aerobic component of the International Physical Activity Guidelines with no significant advantage for those correctly identifying moderate intensity.

Conclusion: Most people who perceive themselves as active are exercising at vigorous intensity while believing they are at moderate intensity. In addition, in this active sample, one-third of the participants were not reaching the aerobic component of the International Physical Activity Guidelines.
