Physical activity and health : a report of the Surgeon General by United States( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The informatin in this report summarizes the existing literature on the role of physical activity in preventing disease and on the status of interventions to increase physical activity, focusing on endurance-type physical activity. School-based interventions have been shown to be successful in increasing physical activity levels. With evidence that success in this arena is possible, every effort should be made to encourage schools to require daily physical education in each grade and to promote physical activities that can be enjoyed throughout life. A major conclusion of this report, though, is that daily enrollment in physical education classes has declined among high school students from 42 percent to 25 percent in 1995. Chapter 1 introduces and summarizes the report and presents the conclusions from each chapter. Chapter 2 offers a historical perspective, outlining the history of belief and knowledge about physical activity and health; then it reviews the evolution and content of physical activity recommendations. Chapter 3 describes the physiological responses to physical activity--both the immediate effects of a single episode of activity and long-term adaptations to a regular pattern of activity. Chapter 4 presents the evidence that physical activity reduces the risk of cardiovascular and other diseases. Data on patterns and trends of physical activity in the U.S. population are the focus of chapter 5. Lastly, chapter 6 examines efforts to increase physical activity and reviews ideas currently being proposed for policy and environmental initiatives. Each chapter contains references. (Nd)

The health consequences of involuntary exposure to tobacco smoke : a report of the Surgeon General( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Surgeon General's report returns to the topic of the health effects of involuntary exposure to tobacco smoke. The last comprehensive review of this evidence by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) was in the 1986 Surgeon General's report, The Health Consequences of Involuntary Smoking, published 20 years ago this year. This new report updates the evidence of the harmful effects of involuntary exposure to tobacco smoke. This large body of research findings is captured in an accompanying dynamic database that profiles key epidemiologic findings, and allows the evidence on health effects of exposure to tobacco smoke to be synthesized and updated (following the format of the 2004 report, The Health Consequences of Smoking). The database enables users to explore the data and studies supporting the conclusions in the report. The database is available on the Web site of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) at http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco

The Health benefits of smoking cessation : a report of the Surgeon General( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major conclusions of this are: 1. Smoking cessation has major and immediate health benefits for men and women of all ages. Benefits apply to persons with and without smoking-related disease. 2. Former smokers live longer than continuing smokers. 3. Smoking cessation decreases the risk of lung cancer, other cancers, heart attack, stroke, and chronic lung disease. 4. Women who stop smoking before pregnancy or during the first 3 to 4 months of pregnancy reduce their risk of having a low birthweight baby to that of women who never smoked. 5. The health benefits of smoking cessation far exceed any risk from the average 5-pound weight gain or any adverse psychological effects that may follow quitting

How tobacco smoke causes disease : the biology and behavioral basis for smoking-attributable disease : a report of the Surgeon General( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report considers the biological and behavioral mechanisms that may underlie the pathogenicity of tobacco smoke. Many Surgeon General's reports have considered research findings on mechanisms in assessing the biological plausibility of associations observed in epidemiologic studies. Mechanisms of disease are important because they may provide plausibility, which is one of the guideline criteria for assessing evidence on causation. This report specifically reviews the evidence on the potential mechanisms by which smoking causes diseases and considers whether a mechanism is likely to be operative in the production of human disease by tobacco smoke. This evidence is relevant to understanding how smoking causes disease, to identifying those who may be particularly susceptible, and to assessing the potential risks of tobacco products
