Body Mass Index


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The Federal guidelines on the identification, evaluation, and treatment of overweight and obesity in adults have defined 'overweight' as a body mass index value between 25 and 29.9; and 'obesity' as a body mass index value greater than or equal to 30. BMI is a ratio between weight and height. It is a mathematical formula that correlates with body fat, used to evaluate if a person is at an unhealthy weight (given a certain height). BMI value is more useful for predicting health risks than the weight alone (for adults ages 18 and up). Individuals with high BMI's are at increased risk of developing certain diseases, including: Hypertension, Cardiovascular Disease, Dyslipidemia, Adult-Onset Diabetes (Type II), Sleep Apnea, Osteoarthritis, Female Infertility, and other Conditions, including: idiopathic intracranial hypertension lower extremity venous stasis disease, gastroesophageal reflux and urinary stress incontinence. This new book gathers research from around the world in the critical field of obesity research and its effects.

Childhood Obesity


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Childhood Obesity: Prevention and Treatment provides a comprehensive summary of the scientific knowledge available today concerning the control and treatment of obesity in children. Written for researchers in the areas of pediatrics, nutrition, dietetics, exercise, and physical education, this book analyzes scientific data and offers readers insight into the underlying factors, theoretical conclusions, and practical outcomes in treating childhood obesity. Although obesity is often accompanied with other functional and/or biochemical conditions, these health risks can be prevented and/or treated through the use of natural factors - provided there is a lack of additional pathological complications. Childhood Obesity: Prevention and Treatment outlines the results of reduction treatment using various approaches, including modified and/or hypocaloric diets, and exercise. Also included in the text are guidelines for an efficient intervention that should begin as early as possible in at-risk children. Offered are specific strategies concerning diet and exercise for various ages and degrees of obesity.

Human Body Size And The Laws Of Scaling


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Several books have been published on scaling in biology and its ramifications in the animal kingdom. However, none has specifically examined the multifaceted effects of how changes in human height create disproportionately larger changes in weight, surface area, strength and other physiological parameters. Yet, the impact of these non-linear effects on individual humans as well as our world's environment is enormous. Since increasing human body size has widespread ramifications, this book presents findings on the human species and its ecological niche. In biology, an ecological niche' refers to the role played by a species in its community and how the species interacts with its environment. Thus, a few chapters provide an ecological overview of how increasing human body size relates to human evolution, fitness, health, survival and the environment. This book provides a unique purview of the laws of scaling on human performance, health, longevity and the environment. Numerous examples from various research disciplines are used to illustrate the impact of increasing body size on many aspects of human enterprises, including work output, athletics and intellectual performance.
