  • Lifestyle Indices and Cardiovascular Disease Risk: A Meta-analysis
    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2018Source: American Journal of Preventive Medicine, Volume 55, Issue 4Author(s): Janett Barbaresko, Johanna Rienks, Ute NöthlingsContextSeveral studies investigated lifestyle indices to account for interrelations between lifestyle behaviors and cardiovascular disease risk. So far, no systematic review has been conducted. Thus, the aim is to summarize the evidence of associations between lifestyle indices and cardiovascular disease risk in observational prospective studies.Evidence acquisitionA systematic literature search was conducted in two databases in February 2018. Multivariable-adjusted risk estimates were combined using random effects models comparing the highest with the lowest healthy lifestyle score. Additionally, meta-analyses for cardiovascular disease types, such as stroke and heart failure, were conducted. Heterogeneity was assessed using I2 index.Evidence synthesisThe search identified 27 studies, of which 22 were included in the meta-analyses. Most lifestyle indices included physical activity, smoking, diet, alcohol consumption, and body weight. A healthy lifestyle was associated with a reduced risk of 66% for cardiovascular disease (95% CI=0.28, 0.41, I2=79.1%), 60% for stroke, and 69% for heart failure. A dose–response effect for adherence to an increasing number of healthy behaviors and cardiovascular disease risk was observed. Statistical heterogeneity was found, suggesting that the definition of the lifestyle indices and components varied substantially between the studies.ConclusionsAdherence to several healthy lifestyle behaviors simultaneously was associated with a 66% reduced cardiovascular disease risk compared with adopting none or only one behavior. Despite heterogeneity of indices, consistent inverse associations across studies underscore the relevance of adopting healthy behaviors at all. More research on other lifestyle behaviors, such as sleep duration or sedentary behavior in combination, is warranted.
       
  • Dietary Intake and Physical Activity Assessment: Current Tools,
           Techniques, and Technologies for Use in Adult Populations
    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2018Source: American Journal of Preventive Medicine, Volume 55, Issue 4Author(s): Holly L. McClung, Lauren T. Ptomey, Robin P. Shook, Anju Aggarwal, Anna M. Gorczyca, Edward S. Sazonov, Katie Becofsky, Rick Weiss, Sai Krupa DasAccurate assessment of dietary intake and physical activity is a vital component for quality research in public health, nutrition, and exercise science. However, accurate and consistent methodology for the assessment of these components remains a major challenge. Classic methods use self-report to capture dietary intake and physical activity in healthy adult populations. However, these tools, such as questionnaires or food and activity records and recalls, have been shown to underestimate energy intake and expenditure as compared with direct measures like doubly labeled water. This paper summarizes recent technological advancements, such as remote sensing devices, digital photography, and multisensor devices, which have the potential to improve the assessment of dietary intake and physical activity in free-living adults. This review will provide researchers with emerging evidence in support of these technologies, as well as a quick reference for selecting the “right-sized” assessment method based on study design, target population, outcome variables of interest, and economic and time considerations.Theme informationThis article is part of a theme issue entitled Innovative Tools for Assessing Diet and Physical Activity for Health Promotion, which is sponsored by the North American branch of the International Life Sciences Institute.

  • Diet and Activity Assessments and Interventions Using Technology in Older
           Adults
    • Abstract: Publication date: October 2018Source: American Journal of Preventive Medicine, Volume 55, Issue 4Author(s): Michelle Takemoto, Todd M. Manini, Dori E. Rosenberg, Amanda Lazar, Zvinka Z. Zlatar, Sai Krupa Das, Jacqueline KerrThis paper reports on the findings and recommendations specific to older adults from the “Tech Summit: Innovative Tools for Assessing Diet and Physical Activity for Health Promotion” forum organized by the North American branch of the International Life Sciences Institute. The summit aimed to investigate current and emerging challenges related to improving energy balance behavior assessment and intervention via technology. The current manuscript focuses on how novel technologies are applied in older adult populations and enumerated the barriers and facilitators to using technology within this population. Given the multiple applications for technology in this population, including the ability to monitor health events and behaviors in real time, technology presents an innovative method to aid with the changes associated with aging. Although older adults are often perceived as lacking interest in and ability to adopt technologies, recent studies show they are comfortable adopting technology and user uptake is high with proper training and guided facilitation. Finally, the conclusions suggest recommendations for future research, including the need for larger trials with clinical outcomes and more research using end-user design that includes older adults as technology partners who are part of the design process.Theme informationThis article is part of a theme issue entitled Innovative Tools for Assessing Diet and Physical Activity for Health Promotion, which is sponsored by the North American branch of the International Life Sciences Institute.

  • Advances and Controversies in Diet and Physical Activity Measurement in
           Youth
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 19 August 2018Source: American Journal of Preventive MedicineAuthor(s): Donna Spruijt-Metz, Cheng K. Fred Wen, Brooke M. Bell, Stephen Intille, Jeannie S. Huang, Tom BaranowskiTechnological advancements in the past decades have improved dietary intake and physical activity measurements. This report reviews current developments in dietary intake and physical activity assessment in youth. Dietary intake assessment has relied predominantly on self-report or image-based methods to measure key aspects of dietary intake (e.g., food types, portion size, eating occasion), which are prone to notable methodologic (e.g., recall bias) and logistic (e.g., participant and researcher burden) challenges. Although there have been improvements in automatic eating detection, artificial intelligence, and sensor-based technologies, participant input is often needed to verify food categories and portions. Current physical activity assessment methods, including self-report, direct observation, and wearable devices, provide researchers with reliable estimations for energy expenditure and bodily movement. Recent developments in algorithms that incorporate signals from multiple sensors and technology-augmented self-reporting methods have shown preliminary efficacy in measuring specific types of activity patterns and relevant contextual information. However, challenges in detecting resistance (e.g., in resistance training, weight lifting), prolonged physical activity monitoring, and algorithm (non)equivalence remain to be addressed. In summary, although dietary intake assessment methods have yet to achieve the same validity and reliability as physical activity measurement, recent developments in wearable technologies in both arenas have the potential to improve current assessment methods.This article is part of a theme issue entitled Innovative Tools for Assessing Diet and Physical Activity for Health Promotion, which is sponsored by the North American branch of the International Life Sciences Institute.
       
  • Chronic Noise Exposure and Adiposity: A Systematic Review and
           Meta-analysis
    • Abstract: Publication date: September 2018Source: American Journal of Preventive Medicine, Volume 55, Issue 3Author(s): Ruopeng An, Junjie Wang, Sadia Anjum Ashrafi, Yan Yang, Chenghua GuanContextNoise is a key environmental stressor affecting millions of people worldwide on a daily basis. Chronic exposure to noise may elevate the risk of adiposity through sleep deprivation and heightened stress level.Evidence acquisitionA literature search was conducted in the PubMed, Web of Science, and Cochrane Library for articles published until February 20, 2018, that assessed the relationship between noise and adiposity. A standardized data extraction form was used to collect methodologic and outcome variables from each included study.Evidence synthesisEleven studies were identified, among which seven reported a positive association between chronic exposure to noise and adiposity. Compared with their counterparts exposed to a lower noise level, adults chronically exposed to a noise level above 55–60 dBA were associated with a higher waist circumference by 7.5 mm per year (95% CI=3.6, 11.4, I2=0.0%). An increase in chronic exposure to noise by 10 dBA was found to be associated with a higher waist circumference by 7.0 mm per year (95% CI=2.5, 11.6, I2=93.9%) in the random effect model but not the inverse variance heterogeneity model. Chronic noise exposure was not found to be associated with BMI.ConclusionsNoise tends to be positively associated with waist circumference but not BMI in adults, but current evidence remains limited. Future studies should assess the impact of noise on adiposity in alternative settings and across population subgroups and geographic areas, examine different sources of noise, and elucidate the biomedical and psychosocial pathways linking noise to adiposity.

  • Expanding the CONSORT Figure: Increasing Transparency in Reporting on
           External Validity
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 20 July 2018Source: American Journal of Preventive MedicineAuthor(s): Russell E. Glasgow, Amy G. Huebschmann, Ross C. BrownsonIntroductionThere are major problems with failure to replicate research findings. Contributing to this problem is a failure to report on factors related to external validity. Frequently, researchers have little knowledge whether findings apply more generally, especially to low-resource settings and underserved populations. The CONSORT flow diagram has improved reporting on variables related to internal validity, but it has very limited detail on issues related to external validity. A recent CONSORT update and other publications have called for more transparent reporting on external validity and context, and information regarding the sustainability of interventions. All of these elements influence the generalizability of findings from outcomes research.MethodsDrawing on theory, a prior meeting, and recent recommendations for reporting factors related to external validity, the authors propose an expansion of the basic CONSORT flow diagram for clinical trials to concisely summarize these data that recent CONSORT statements and other guidelines have recommended.ResultsThe authors propose the use of an expanded CONSORT figure and illustrate its utility with an example. The expanded CONSORT figure adds data about participation and representativeness at the levels of settings and staff, and about intervention sustainability after project support ends. The authors provide an expanded CONSORT figure reporting template, and demonstrate its use.ConclusionsImproving transparent reporting on external validity by using the proposed expanded CONSORT figure would help to address both the scientific replication crisis and health equity concerns. This figure provides a method to efficiently address the representativeness, generalizability, and sustainability of outcomes research.
