The reported 7-day dietary intake is described for 60 middle-aged and older middle-class adults aged 45-75 years. The 30 men, who apparently were mostly still moderately active (reported average energy intake for 7-day recording period 11.7 +/- 3.6 MJ/day) showed few deficiencies in the intake of ke...

This study examined how acculturative stress is influenced by social capital, age, income, education and gender in a sample of 326 Iraqi-Christians from southern Ontario, Canada. Both overall acculturative stress and its individual constructs were tested in a series of logistic regression models. Fi...

PURPOSE: To determine whether neonatal abstinence scores of infants exposed to methadone in utero differed by infant feeding method. DESIGN: A retrospective chart review. SUBJECTS: Twenty-eight term infants that were exposed to methadone in utero and exhibited symptoms of neonatal abstinence syndr...

Despite growing interest in the biomechanical mechanisms of sports-related concussion, ice hockey and the youth sport population has not been studied extensively. The purpose of this pilot study was: 1) to describe the biomechanical measures of head impacts in youth minor ice hockey players; and, 2)...

The significance of the Internet, as a tool for health researchers has yet to be determined. Although search engines have been developed to use the Internet in health database information retrieval, the current practice is for health researchers to use the Internet as a billboard to post facts and i...

Head rotation, shoulder extension and rotation, ankle plantar and dorsiflexion, hip flexion, and sit and reach (SR) scores were examined in 41 women and 39 men, aged 45–75 years. The SR gave more reproducible data than the other measurements (intraclass test/retest correlation over 8 months, r = ....

Background With the invention of the ion-selective electrode (ISE), ionic magnesium (iMg) is a common blood assay. This could be advantageous, as iMg is the biologically active form of Mg. There is some evidence that iMg has considerable within subject variability. Results Individual ranges averag...

Isometric handgrip force, isokinetic knee flexion and extension torque, and anthropometric data were obtained on 67 older men and women (ranging in age from 45 to 75 years, mean 59.7 years). Hydrostatic and skinfold estimates of lean body mass were quite closely correlated with each other in this sa...

Cardiorespiratory and gas exchange responses to a moderate, standardized treadmill walking task showed a weak circadian rhythm, with larger superimposed peaks attributable to feeding. However, both rhythms became progressively attenuated during a period of sleep deprivation. A method of exploring th...

Traditionally data processing in applied biomechanics has relied on descriptive approaches. Although these are effective exploratory techniques, they may not provide an understanding of the interaction between the variables that describe the event across repeated sampling. Factor analysis is a stati...

Several studies have reported post-exercise increases of urinary concentrations of plasma proteins. However, under normal conditions, through mechanisms of size and electrical charge selection, the kidney restricts the clearance of molecules as large as albumin. Post-exercise increases in albuminuri...

Formerly a self-governed profession, in the Province of Ontario, Canada, kinesiology was designated a regulated profession under the Regulated Health Professions Act (1991). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the per- ceptions of current health delivery agents to the regulation of kinesiology...
