The objective of this study was to elucidate the impact of physical activity during the growth period as well as on oxidative stress and antioxidative potential in adulthood. The experimental animals used were four-week old male Wistar rats, which were randomly divided into three groups. The exercise loads were as follows: control (CON), treadmill...

Background In this study, we examined the influence of exercise loading characteristics on bone metabolic responses and bone morphology in the growth phase and adulthood. Methods Running exercise (RUN) and jumping exercise (JUM) were used for the exercise loading in 28-day-old male Wistar rats. Bone metabolism was measured by blood osteocalcin (OC...

To investigate factors related to resumption of smoking by women after childbirth, the smoking habits of 241 postnatal women, who initially had stopped smoking after pregnancy, in a rural city in Aomori Prefecture, Japan, were studied at 5 - 6 days, 1 month, and 12 months after childbirth. At 1 month after childbirth, only nine women had resumed sm...

Aim: To compare diets between obese and nonobese in healthy older subjects. Methods: Fortyfive obese and eighty-seven non-obese older subjects were recruited and their habitual factors that may contribute to obesity were assessed. Intakes of food by food-group in the obesity and non-obesity groups were checked using a visual type presentation of mo...

Bone metabolism markers associated with 4 menstrual cycle phases were evaluated in 14 healthy young females without menstrual disorder. Menstrual cycle phases were confirmed with basal body temperature for 3 months, luteinizing hormone kits, and sexual hormone concentrations of serum. The bone metabolism markers used were osteocalcin (OC), which wa...
Article
Measuring the bioelectrical impedance (BI) is a simple and non-invasive method for estimating body fat or muscle mass. However, body impedance is affected by variations in the distribution of body fluid without reference to actual body fat or muscle mass. Twenty healthy college students (10 males, 10 females; mean age 21.0±2.3 years) participated i...

Aim: To compare diets between obese and non-obese in children. Methods: Thirty-four obese and ten non-obese school children were recruited and their habitual factors of obesity were asked. Intakes of food in the obesity and non-obesity groups were checked using a model nutritional balance chart (MNBC). Results: Average intake ratio of food relative...
Article
Postnatal depression is one of the life-threatening events faced by women. As the factors associated with postnatal depression have not been investigated fully in Japan, we studied the factors associated with postnatal depression. One-hundred-and-sixty-nine women who visited the health center of a city in Aomori Prefecture, Japan, at 4 months after...
Article
Aim: Dietary control of diabetes mellitus becomes hard in care-dependent older patients staying at home due to the difficulty of understanding nutritional balance by their primary caregivers. In the present study, an easily handled Model Nutritional Balance Chart (MNBC) for care-dependent older patients with diabetes mellitus and their primary care...
Article
The Japanese neonate home-visit nursing guidance program for mother-and-child health administration is unique on the world scale, because it makes support for every family possible. However, very few studies have been conducted concerning the efficacy of the neonate home-visiting guidance program. The purpose of this study was to examine the utilit...
Article
Aim: Childhood obesity has been described as a public health disaster. Nutritional balance is surely one of the key factors to reduce obesity, but successful nutritional education has not been reported yet. In the present study, an easily handled model nutritional balance chart (MNBC) for obese children and their families was investigated. Methods:...

Aim: To compare diets between obese and non-obese in children. Methods: Thirty-four obese and ten non-obese school children were re-cruited and their habitual factors of obesity were asked. Intakes of food in the obesity and non-obesity groups were checked using a model nutritional balance chart (MNBC). Results: Average intake ratio of food relativ...

Adaptive changes consist of: -lower ONS (limitation of ROS and RNS generation) -increased AO defense capacity (Kruk et al., 2019;Alikhani & Sheikholeslami-Vatani, 2019;Lamarão-Vieira et al., 2019;Thirupathi et al., 2020;Radak et al., 2005;Lee et al., 2017;Mota et al., 2019;Rytz et al., 2020) -lower prooxidant parameters (de Sousa et al., 2017) -increased activity of AO enzymes (Tromm et al., 2016). ...
... In addition to TCF7, there are three other members: LEF1, TCF7L1, and TCF7L2; however, we did not observe any increase in their expression levels in running mice (Fig. 3C), suggesting a specific activation of the Tcf7 gene during long-term exercise. Several studies have demonstrated that long-term exercise is also capable of enhancing production of a variety of metabolic regulation hormones, such as osteocalcin in bone cells (44,45) and irisin in skeletal muscle (40). Indeed, the group of running mice exhibited upregulated mRNA levels of the osteocalcin gene and downregulated mRNA levels of the Ptprv gene crucial for osteocalcin carboxylation in bone (Fig. 3D), suggesting that circulating osteocalcin might be elevated during long-term exercise. ...
... Women who smoked during pregnancy had higher odds of having PPD than nonsmokers or those who quit smoking (AORs = 1.48; 95% [CI = 1.26 -1.73]) (Salimi et al., 2015). Satoh et al. (2013) using the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS), a commonly used scale that assesses postpartum depression also found that postpartum women who were active smokers scored significantly higher (< p 0.001) as well as those who had quit smoking scored significantly higher (p < 0.01) than nonsmokers. Moreover, another review found smoking behavior positively associated with the risk of suicide although the mechanisms were not clear (Hughes, 2008). ...
... 1 It was once regarded as a sign of affluence, but according to the World Health Organization (WHO), 2 it has now become a growing global epidemic, 3 affecting over 1.3 billion adults worldwide. Obesity can be defined as excess total body fat with a body mass index (BMI) of more than 30 kg/m 2 , while a BMI of [25][26][27][28][29].99 kg/m 2 is regarded as overweight. 3 Obesity is a health challenge that cuts across the lifespan, starting in childhood. ...
... Lastly, while examination of country-related differences at a macro-level appears to answer questions regarding the prevalence of obesity and eating disorders commonly attributed to differences in the levels of economic development and urbanization of different countries, the macro-examination approach leaves much to be desired; it falls short of explaining the reason(s) food intake in some developed and highly urbanized countries, such as Japan, is not a factor in obesity [45]. Thus, previous observations and explanations of increasing obesity rates based on "westernization" of developing countries [46] may not be generalized. ...
... On the other hand, interventions to prevent childhood obesity have been inconsistent or have shown only limited effects of dietary habits and physical activity [1]. In the previous study [2], we reported that food intake was not a primary factor contributing to obesity but exercise was a key factor for reducing obesity in children. Iijima et al. [3] suggested that lower physical activity, but not excessive caloric intake, is associated with the prevalence of metabolic syndrome in older patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. ...

... In aged-care facilities, when the initiation of tube feeding was being discussed, if the question was phrased as, "Ninety percent of people say they would not want this procedure; do you want to go ahead with it?" the number of people who selected tube feeding dropped to half (Kosaka et al. 2005). In Japan today, 70,000 people are tube-fed each year, including 60,000 elderly patients who require nursing care. ...
... The first step in dealing with obesity is to determine the prevalence and dimensions of obesity. Nurses can also play an important role in defining obesity, nutrition education, strategies for lower calorie consumption, and weight management (16)(17)(18). ...
