Book Description:
Sedentary behaviors include activities at the lowest spectrum of energy expenditure such as lying down, sitting, watching television, using the computer and other media and screen-based past times. A habitual sedentary lifestyle has been associated with different health problems. This important book gathers current research from across the globe in the study and prevalence of physical inactivity, and evaluates the numerous health risks associated with sedentary behavior. Some topics discussed herein include how a sedentary lifestyle can impact cognitive ability adversely; sedentary behaviors and cardiovascular risk factors for children and adolescents; childhood obesity prevention and management; exercise training; and the effects of sedentary behavior on mood and insulin sensitivity.
