Do neighborhood environments moderate the effect of physical activity lifestyle interventions in adults?


, : Do neighborhood environments moderate the effect of physical activity lifestyle interventions in adults?. Health & Place 16(5): 903-908

This study builds upon the current literature investigating the relationship between individuals' physical activity and the built environment. This prospective study of two lifestyle interventions in adults explores the moderating effect of the built environment measured both objectively and by self-report. Results show that overweight men in an intervention group increased their walking significantly more if they lived in less walkable neighborhoods. Overweight women were more likely to increase their physical activity over time if they perceived better safety from traffic. This study suggests that psychosocial interventions can help men overcome environmental barriers to walking.

We investigated the effect of prostaglandin E-1 (PGE-1) on the secretion of interleukin-6 (IL-6) in osteoblast-like MC3T3-E1 cells. PGE-1, which induced cAMP accumulation, stimulated IL-6 secretion time-dependently up to 48 h. The stimulative effe...
