    Defining Eosinophil Function in Adiposity and Weight Loss.Alexander J. Knights, Emily J. Vohralik, Kyle L. Hoehn, Merlin Crossley & Kate G. R. Quinlan - 2018 - Bioessays 40 (10):1800098.
    Despite promising early work into the role of immune cells such as eosinophils in adipose tissue (AT) homeostasis, recent findings revealed that elevating the number of eosinophils in AT alone is insufficient for improving metabolic impairments in obese mice. Eosinophils are primarily recognized for their role in allergic immunity and defence against parasitic worms. They have also been detected in AT and appear to contribute to adipose homeostasis and drive energy expenditure, but the underlying mechanisms remain elusive. It has long (...)

    Changes in the Prevalence of Overweight/Obesity and Adiposity Among Pre-School Children in Kraków, Poland, From 2008 to 2018.Magdalena Żegleń, Łukasz Kryst, Małgorzata Kowal, Agnieszka Woronkowicz & Jan Sobiecki - 2020 - Journal of Biosocial Science 52 (6):895-906.
    Socioeconomic changes occurring over time influence the lifestyle choices of a population, and these can significantly affect children’s body weight and composition. The aim of this study was to assess the changes in prevalence of overweight, obesity and adiposity in pre-school children in Poland between 2008 and 2018. Body height, body weight and subscapular and triceps skinfolds were measured in 2167 children aged 3–7 years from Kraków. Body mass index and adiposity were calculated for the children, who were (...)

    Variation in Dietary Intake and Body Fatness by Socioeconomic Status Among Women in the Context of Costa Rican Nutrition Transitions.Traci A. Bekelman, Carolina Santamaría-Ulloa & Darna L. Dufour - forthcoming - Journal of Biosocial Science:1-18.
    The Nutrition Transition model posits that vegetable oils, animal source foods and caloric sweeteners contribute to increases in adiposity and hence body mass index. Body mass index is increasing more rapidly among Latin American populations of low versus high socioeconomic status. The objectives of this study among Costa Rican women were to: compare indicators of adiposity and dietary intake by SES and evaluate the relationship between intake of foods high in vegetable oils, ASFs or caloric sweeteners and body (...)

    Association Between Body Composition, Somatotype and Socioeconomic Status in Chilean Children and Adolescents at Different School Levels.Pablo A. Lizana, Sofia González, Lydia Lera & Bárbara Leyton - 2018 - Journal of Biosocial Science 50 (1):53-69.
    SummaryThis study examined the association between body composition, somatotype and socioeconomic status in Chilean children and adolescents by sex and school level. The cross-sectional study was conducted on 1168 schoolchildren aged 6–18 years from Valparaíso, Chile. Body composition, as assessed by percentage body fat and somatotype, was evaluated using Ellis equations and the Heath–Carter method, respectively. The socioeconomic status of respondents was assessed using the ESOMAR survey. Obesity was defined as BF% ≥25 for boys and ≥30 for girls; ‘high endomorph’ (...)
