  1. Changes in commingled body mass index distributions associated with secular trends in overweight among Danish young men.

    Article - En anglais

    The authors present results from a novel approach to understanding recent secular trends in overweight in terms of changes in underlying component distributions.

    On the basis of an examination of two large overlapping samples of Danish young men (ns=16,557 and 21,747) spanning birth cohors 1939-1958, the authors found evidence for two-component distributions, normal and overweight, in all cohorts.

    On the basis of these results and other published reports, the authors speculate that the secular increase overweight may be understood as a differential response to environmental change that may be mediated by genotype.
