London, Oct 1, In poor countries, obesity is more common among the higher educated, while in rich countries, obesity is more common among the lesser educated, new research has found.

“When countries become richer, changes in living conditions occur that predominantly affect the weight of those with low education,” said lead author Jonas Minet Kinge, associate professor at the University of Oslo in Norway.

“For example, earlier literature suggests that low education in poorer countries is associated with limited resources available for excess food consumption, and more physically demanding work. These conditions limit obesity among those with low education in developing countries,” Kinge explained.

The aim of this new study was to explore the assumption from previous studies that obesity is linked to gross domestic product (GDP) and education. In total, data from 70 countries was included.

The results from this study confirmed that there is an association between obesity, education and GDP.

The prevalence of obesity increases with rising GDP, but only among individuals with lower levels of education, the findings showed.

There is no significant increase in obesity among those with higher education. In countries with low GDP there is more obesity among those with high education, the study showed.

On the other hand, in countries with high GDP there is more obesity among those with low education.

The study also found that the relationship was somewhat more marked among women than among men.

“In rich countries with economies based largely on service and technology industries, most people can afford calorie-rich foods and there are, overall, fewer jobs with physically demanding work. This boosts the prevalence of obesity among those with lower education in high GDP countries,” Kinge noted.

The findings appeared in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.

  4. 關于Ion Magnum技術: 它的作用是加快脂肪代謝而轉化成肌肉。專業設計的微電流模擬大腦到肌肉的正常神經傳導。乙醯膽鹼及ATP(産生能量的物質)都是由神經末梢釋放的。神經元共振導致神經末梢持續不斷的釋放ATP,甚至能達到正常釋放量的500。 Ion Magnum應用的是世界定級的神經生理學技術,它加快脂肪燃燒的速度,增强肌肉收縮,提高基礎代謝率(指的是你靜息狀態下消耗卡路里的速率)。複雜的微電流包含2000次與正常生理過程的相互作用,由此達到人體自然狀態下所不能達到的效果。它可以加快能量的轉化,增强體力和運動能力。 Ion Magnum目前由位於英國的創新科學研究中心開發、製造,該中心是由歐盟提供資金支持的。該設備及其組件均是由英國頂級的科學家手工製作的。該産品有CE標志,CE標志是歐洲共同市場的安全標志。 Ion Magnum基於最新的起搏器技術。
