Body Mass Index and Health

Creator: Linda A. Ferrera | Health & Fitness - 2005

This new book gathers research from around the world in the critical field of obesity research and its effects.

Publisher: Nova Publishers

About this book
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.

Relation Between Body Mass Index and Aggression Among First Grade Children

2007

Aggression was measured using the BASC-II (teacher and parent versions). The children's heights, weights, and ages were used to calculate BMI.

Publisher: ProQuest

About this book
The present study focused on the relationship between Body Mass Index (BMI) and aggression in first grade children. Participants in the study consisted of 608 first grade children at rural public elementary schools recruited as part of the USDA funded Families and Schools for Health study. Aggression was measured using the BASC-II (teacher and parent versions). The children's heights, weights, and ages were used to calculate BMI. The results suggest that overweight are not significantly different from normal weight children on teacher or parent rated aggression. However, the at-risk for overweight children are perceived by teachers to bully other children more often than normal weight children.
