Vienna, VA (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
On June 20th, Dr. Lauren Hale, PhD, presented a study at the SLEEP 2013 conference discussing the relationship between sleep habits and childhood obesity. Dr. Hale is Associate Professor of Preventive Medicine at Study Brook University School of Medicine. The study was conducted using a representative sample of 13,284 teenagers, and found that teenagers who slept for seven hours or less at night were more likely to suffer from obesity for several reasons. It found that they were more likely to have poor eating habits and to prefer fast foods to fruits or vegetables, which contributes to obesity. This information is from an article on Science Daily published June 20th, 2013 which is entitled "Sleep Deprivation in Teens Linked to Poor Dietary Choices."
This study linking obesity and sleep patterns in teenagers follows other research that outlines a link in adults between obesity and poor sleeping habits. On April 17, 2012, Dr. Kristen L. Knutson from the University of Chicago published an article entitled "Does inadequate sleep play a role in vulnerability to obesity?" in the American Journal of Human Biology. According to the article's abstract, Dr. Knutson examined recent research regarding the relationshipn between obesity and sleep patterns, and found that research showed that there is enough evidence that obesity may be linked to inadequate sleep duration. This research outlines further the link between sleep duration and the potential of both teenagers and adults to become affected by obesity.
The study mentioned above conducted by Dr. Hale comes right after the decision by the American Medical Association to recognize obesity as a disease. An article published in the New York Times entitled "A.M.A. Recognizes Obesity as a Disease" written by Andrew Pollack describes how the delegates at the AMA's annual meeting were concerned about the problem of obesity to the extent that they decided to recognize it as a disease against the recommendations of a committee to the AMA's annual meeting. This decision by the AMA is part of the process of recognizing the serious impact that obesity has on the individuals who suffer from it.
