Ajslev TA, Ängquist L, Silventoinen K, Baker JL, Sørensen TIA. Trends in parent-child correlations of childhood body mass index during the development of the obesity epidemic. PLoS ONE 2014;9:e109932.

Summaries (Eng/Danish)

The resemblance of mothers' body weight in childhood with their children's body weight (adjusted for height) was unchanged across the time period where the development of the obesity epidemic took place, whereas there was a slight increase in the resemblance with fathers' body weight as children, which however,  may well be explained by a change over time in the registration of who were the biological fathers.

Sammenhængen mellem mødres kropsvægt som børn og deres børns kropvægt (under hensyntagen til deres højde) har været helt uændret trods stigningen i forekomsten af fedme, mens sammenhængen med fædrenes kropsvægt som børn har fået større betydning, om end dette nok skyldes ændringer i registreringen af hvem der er de biologiske fædre.

Summaries (Eng/Danish)

Tykke børns livskvalitet, vurderet af dem selv, er ringere slanke børns, især på de psykosociale områder, og ringere end vurderet af deres mødre.

Keller AC, Heitmann BL, Olsen NJ. Sugar-sweetened beverages, vascular risk factors and events: a systematic literature review. Public Health Nutrition. 2014. Oct 17 [Epub ahead of print]

Summaries (Eng/Danish)

Denne litteraturgennemgang viser at et højt indtag af sukkersødede læskedrikke påvirker udviklingen af risikofaktorer for hjertesygdom i negativ retning, mens sammenhængen til udvikling af egl. hjertekarsygdom er mindre konsekvent.
