Obesity and Sedentarism: Reviewing the Current Situation Within the WHO European Region

Beschrijving

Overweight and obesity are major health hazards in the WHO European Region. Both diet patterns and physical activity levels have been widely recognized as the main contributors to the development of overweight/obesity. Over the past few years evidence has been piling up that sedentary behavior, defined as a distinct behavior from physical activity, is also positively associated to overweight/obesity. This review article finds that despite the inconsistent findings on the health impact of sedentary behavior and overweight/obesity, the current trend towards spending more time in sedentary behaviors and the studies that show a positive association between obesity and sedentary behavior make a strong argument for integrating sedentary behavior guidelines in future policy plans, recommendations and actions.
