Researchers found that obese women were 40 percent more likely than normal-weight and overweight women to have their pregnancy end in stillbirth -- defined as moncler outlet
fetal death in the 20th week of pregnancy or later.African-American women were especially at risk. Compared with obese white women, their rate of stillbirth was 90 percent higher, the study authors report in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology.Part of the reason for the obesity-stillbirth link may rest in the fact that obese women are more prone to diabetes and high blood pressure in pregnancy, explained Dr.

The researchers surveyed 1,678 men and women on their habitual physical activities, and scored them for four components of those activities: muscle strength, intensity, mechanical strain, and turning actions.During 12 years of follow-up, 28 percent of the study participants developed knee OA. While the intensity of physical activity and the amount of turning action involved didn't affect OA risk, the researchers did find that high mechanical strain activities -- for example, volleyball -- boosted risk, as did engaging in low muscle strength activities,Our results are in line with the results of studies using measured muscle weakness or functional limitations showing that reduced muscle strength might increase the risk of OA, the researchers write.Because they also identified a trend toward greater OA risk with low-mechanical-strain activities, they add, "this finding implicates that some mechanical loading of the bone is necessary to maintain healthy bone and cartilage structures,Future research should determine how much daily moncler jackets canada
activity corresponding to each of the four activity components they measured would be "optimal" for healthy joints, the researchers conclude.SOURCE: Arthritis & Rheumatism, February 2009
