Pennington Biomedical Research Center Study Suggests Decreases in U. S. Occupation Energy Levels a Significant Trigger of Obesity Epidemic
Date:5/25/2011

e released suggesting 150 minutes per week of moderate intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity physical activity per week. However, only 1 in 20 Americans are meeting these guidelines.  If men and women were meeting these recommendations, this would make up for the decreased activity levels in the labor work force.

In the study, the authors chose to focus on occupation activity as it represents the largest segment of waking hours for adults. Over the past 40 years, the workforce has also changed dramatically, with more women working today. Since 1970, the percentage of women in the workforce has risen from 43 percent in 1970 to 60 percent in 2007. These findings support the fact that a major focus on public health interventions and research in the future should be directed towards increasing physical activity outside of the workplace.

Seven of the study's authors are from the Pennington Biomedical Research Center: Timothy Church, M.D., M.P.H., Ph.D., Catrine Tudor-Locke, Ph.D., Peter T. Katzmarzyk, Ph.D., Conrad P. Earnest, Ph.D., Ruben Rodarte, M.S., Corby K. Martin, Ph.D., and Claude Bouchard, Ph.D.  Other authors are Diana M. Thomas, Ph.D., of Montclair State University, and Steven N. Blair, P.E.D., of the University of South Carolina.
