Prevalence and risk factors for allergic rhinitis in two resource‐limited settings in Peru with disparate degrees of urbanization
Thu, 24 Jul 2014 12:55:16 +0100 | Clinical and Experimental Allergy
Conclusion and Clinical RelevanceAllergic rhinitis was prevalent in both settings and important risk factors include elevated exhaled nitric oxide, allergic sensitization to common household aeroallergens, parental rhinitis, being overweight and high total serum IgE. When considering subject‐specific factors, the difference in prevalence between the urban and rural settings became non‐important.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Obesity linked to low endurance, increased fatigue in the workplace
Wed, 23 Jul 2014 04:00:00 +0100 | EurekAlert! - Social and Behavioral Science
(American Industrial Hygiene Association) US workplaces may need to consider innovative methods to prevent fatigue from developing in employees who are obese. Based on results from a new study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene, workers who are obese may have significantly shorter endurance times when performing workplace tasks, compared with their non-obese counterparts.

The Relationship Between Obesity and Exposure to Light at Night: Cross-Sectional Analyses of Over 100,000 Women in the Breakthrough Generations Study
Wed, 23 Jul 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | American Journal of Epidemiology
There has been a worldwide epidemic of obesity in recent decades. In animal studies, there is convincing evidence that light exposure causes weight gain, even when calorie intake and physical activity are held constant. Disruption of sleep and circadian rhythms by exposure to light at night (LAN) might be one mechanism contributing to the rise in obesity, but it has not been well-investigated in humans. Using multinomial logistic regression, we examined the association between exposure to LAN and obesity in questionnaire data from over 100,000 women in the Breakthrough Generations Study, a cohort study of women aged 16 years or older who were living in the United Kingdom and recruited during 2003–2012. The odds of obesity, measured using body mass index, waist:hip ratio, waist:height...

Invited Commentary: Nighttime Light Exposure as a Risk Factor for Obesity Through Disruption of Circadian and Circannual Rhythms
Wed, 23 Jul 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | American Journal of Epidemiology
In this issue of the American Journal of Epidemiology, McFadden et al. (Am J Epidemiol. 2014;180(3):245–250) report findings on the relationship between light exposure at night and obesity from a cross-sectional study of United Kingdom women. Their research extends findings from a previous study with elderly participants by including a larger sample size of over 100,000 women and a broader age range of 16 years or older. The findings are consistent with animal studies showing that prolonged light exposure leads to weight gain. Humans’ circadian, circannual, and metabolic regulatory systems evolved to be adaptive in environments that were quite different from those faced in modern industrial society. Technology has allowed exposures to levels and timing of light, nutrient intake...
