  • [Title] State-level estimates of obesity-attributable costs of absenteeism.
  • OBJECTIVE: To provide state-level estimates of obesity-attributable costs of absenteeism among working adults in the United States.
  • The outcome is obesity-attributable workdays missed in the previous year because of health and their costs to states.
  • RESULTS: Obesity, but not overweight, is associated with a significant increase in workdays absent, from 1.1 to 1.7 extra days missed annually compared with normal-weight employees.
  • Obesity-attributable absenteeism among American workers costs the nation an estimated $8.65 billion per year.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Obesity imposes a considerable financial burden on states, accounting for 6.5% to 12.6% of total absenteeism costs in the workplace.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Food taxation and pricing strategies to "thin out" the obesity epidemic.
  • This article highlights characteristics of two related yet distinct economic approaches to addressing the current obesity epidemic in the United States: the general taxation of soft drinks, snack foods, and/or fast foods, and the application of pricing incentives/disincentives on foods sold in schools and worksites.
  • Novel empirical evidence showing strong positive associations between the presence of state-level taxation on soft drinks or snack foods between 1991 and 1998 and relative changes in obesity prevalence over the same time period is further presented.
  • The article concludes by summarizing the similarities and dissimilarities of the two approaches, and by emphasizing some of the gaps and priorities regarding these strategies that should be addressed in future research and policies to best effect obesity prevention.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Obesity significantly increases the difficulty of patient management in the emergency department.
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine which aspects of ED management are adversely affected by patient obesity, to determine the level of obesity above which management is made more difficult and to make recommendations on how these effects might be mitigated.
  • Each was asked to record how the level of their patient's obesity increased the difficulty of specific management items, using a Likert scale.
  • Staff also provided recommendations to mitigate the effects of obesity for each patient, if applicable.
  • BMI most strongly correlated with difficulty in finding anatomical landmarks, venous pressure measurement, physical examination, patient positioning and procedures generally, especially cannulation and venipuncture (coefficient > 0.5, P < 0.001).
  • Generally, management difficulty did not increase until the BMI was in the obese or morbidly obese range.
  • CONCLUSION: Patient obesity significantly increases the difficulty of ED patient management.

  • [Title] COL6A3 is regulated by leptin in human adipose tissue and reduced in obesity.
  • Knockout of collagen VI in rodent AT led to a significant improvement in metabolic health in obese, diabetic ob/ob mice.
  • We therefore aimed to undertake a comprehensive assessment of COL6A3 in relation to human AT and obesity.
  • In both depots, COL6A3 expression appeared to be lowered in obesity, whereas diet- and surgery-induced weight loss increased COL6A3 expression in SCAT.

  • [Title] Cancer, obesity, and legitimation of suggested lifestyles: a libertarian paternalism approach.
  • We also know that there is clear evidence of the causal relations between obesity and cancer.
  • This means that there could be lifestyles that could prevent obesity and, thus, cancer.
  • We discuss it, also proposing a version that we call deliberative libertarian paternalism, showing how important this problem is for a proper framing of the lifestyle policies concerning obesity and, thus, cancer prevention.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Prevalence of overweight and obesity among children aged 2-5 years in Bahrain: a comparison between two reference standards.
  • A cross-sectional study was carried out on Bahraini preschoolers aged 2-5 years (354 males and 344 females) to determine the prevalence of overweight and obesity using the World Health Organization and the International Obesity Task Force cut-off values.
  • Weight and height were recorded and body mass index (BMI) was calculated to determine the proportion of overweight and obesity.
  • Using the World Health Organization percentile cut-off values, overweight (12.3%) and obesity (8.4%) was higher in females between 2 and <4 years of age whereas, the proportion of both overweight (8.4%) and obesity (7.2%) were higher in males between 4 and <6 years of age.
  • Relative to the International Obesity Task Force indicators, the World Health Organization cut-off values produced nearly a 2-fold increase in both overweight and obesity at most ages.
  • It is therefore important to ensure that the same cut-off reference values are used to define overweight and obesity particularly in preschoolers.
