This study examined the independent and combined associations of physical activity (PA) and sedentary behavior (SB) with health risk behaviors in Brazilian adolescents. Participants were 893 adolescents (454 girls) from Curitiba, Brazil. The Youth Activity Profile questionnaire evaluated PA and the Adolescent Sedentary Questionnaire evaluated SB. The Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System ( YRBS) questionnaire evaluated fruit, vegetable, alcohol, and tobacco consumption. Binary Logistic regression measured the independent and combined associations of PA and SB with risk behaviors. PA was inversely associated with low fruit (OR = 0.30; 95%CI: 0.18-0.51) and vegetable consumption (OR = 0.43; 95%CI: 0.25-0.73), and tobacco use (OR = 0.52; 95%CI: 0.29-0.89). However, PA was positively associated with mild (OR = 1.54; 95%CI: 1.08-2.19) and excessive alcohol use (OR = 1.53; 95%CI: 1.01-2.33). Higher levels of PA were associated with reduced risks of smoking and healthier eating patterns, but higher likelihood of alcohol consumption

Este estudo examinou as associações independentes e combinadas de atividade física (AF) e do comportamento sedentário (CS) com comportamentos de risco à saúde em adolescentes brasileiros. Participaram do estudo 893 adolescentes (454 meninas) de Curitiba, Brasil. O questionário Youth Activity Profile avaliou a AF e o Questionário de atividades sedentárias dos adolescentes avaliou o CS. O questionário Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBS) avaliou o consumo de frutas, vegetais, álcool e tabaco. A regressão logística binária avaliou as associações independentes e combinadas de AF e CS com comportamentos de risco. AF foi inversamente associado com baixo consumo de frutas (OR = 0,30; IC95%: 0,18-0,51), de vegetais (OR = 0,43; IC95%: 0,25-0,73) e uso de tabaco (OR = 0,52; IC95%: 0,29-0,89). No entanto, a AF foi positivamente associada com uso moderado (OR = 1,54; IC95%: 1,08-2,19) e uso excessivo de álcool (OR = 1,53; IC95%: 1,01-2,33). Níveis mais altos de AF foram associados com riscos reduzidos de fumar e padrões alimentares mais saudáveis e com maior probabilidade de consumo de álcool

A noção de "Promoção da Saúde" recebe enorme atenção por parte do núcleo profissional de Educação Física. Entretanto, ela tem sido utilizada de forma indiscriminada. O ensaio pretende visibilizar a relevância de maior demarcação conceitual em torno da Promoção da Saúde e apontar as diferenças teóricas existentes. Dois aspectos são analisados: a simbiose prevenção/promoção da saúde e a abordagem dura em direção aos indivíduos e pouco crítica aos contextos e às condições de vida. À medida que os estudos se situarem teoricamente, caminhos poderão se abrir para embates e amadurecimento teórico-prático da Promoção da Saúde com repercussões nas intervenções, na formação profissional e na pesquisa na área. Estranhar o que temos feito é uma premissa nem sempre simpática, contudo é justamente este desprendimento que sinalizará amadurecimento, posicionamento, e, com divergências possíveis, proporcionará densidade conceitual e evolução ao tema Promoção da Saúde na Atividade Física e Saúde

The concept of 'Health Promotion' receives widespread attention from the field of Physical Education. Nevertheless, this concept has been indistinctly used. This essay aims to highlight the need for stricter conceptual delimitation regarding the concept of health promotion, particularly by pointing out differences in existing theories. We give particular attention to two issues: symbiosis prevention/health promotion and the limited view that behaviors are defined by individual choices ignoring the context and living conditions. We ad-vocate that these theoretical pathways need to be addressed in order to enrich discussions around the concept of Health Promotion for intervention, health education and research purposes. Challenging our current practice is not a pleasant action, however this is exactly the sign of maturation needed for dealing with existing conceptual discrepancies aimed at pushing the fields of health promotion and physical activity forward

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a daily life-based physical activity enhancement program performed by middle-aged women at risk for cardiovascular disease. METHODS: This study used a randomized control group pretest-posttest design. Middle-aged women aged 45 to 64 were recruited from two outpatient cardiology departments, and randomly assigned to an experimental group (n=28) and a control group (n=30). For the experimental group, after providing one-on-one counseling and education, we provided customized text messages to motivate them in daily life. To monitor the practice of physical activity, they also used an exercise diary and mobile pedometer for 12 weeks. Subjects' physical activities (MET-min/week) were measured using the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ). Their physiological data were obtained by blood tests using a portable analyzer, and the data were analyzed using the SPSS 21.0/WIN program. RESULTS: There were significant differences in exercise self-efficacy, health behavior, IPAQ score, body fat, body muscle, and fasting blood sugar between the two groups. However, there were no significant differences in total cholesterol, hemoglobin A1c, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and waist-to-hip ratio. CONCLUSION: Strengthening physical activity in daily life without being limited by cost burden and time and space constraints. Therefore, it is essential to motivate middle-aged women at risk for cardiovascular disease to practice activities that are easily performed in their daily lives.

PURPOSE: This study tries to analyze the concept of Yangsaeng in the Korean aged, with focus on nursing. METHODS: Rodgers'evolutionary approach was used to identify the common definitions, attributes, antecedents, and consequences of the Yangsaeng concept for the aged. Literature search was conducted at the NAL, NDSL, RISS, ProQuest, PubMed, AMED, and MEDLINE databases from 2004 to 2016, using the keywords “Yangsaeng,” “health promotion,” “health management,” “traditional oriental methods,” and “traditional oriental nursing.”Finally, 20 relevant articles were selected and thoroughly reviewed. RESULTS: The analysis shows that the model of Yangsaeng for the Korean aged is that of personal adaptive-capacity, totality, challenging, and coping resource and includes physical, social and psychological health and wellness. CONCLUSION: This work provides some implications on the development of nursing intervention related with Yangsaeng for the Korean aged, and suggests the implementation of such intervention in the practice of Yangsaeng for the Korean aged. Therefore, a better understanding of the Korean aged and Yangsaeng within the context of nursing can be achieved.

OBJECTIVES: To identify factors related to physical health monitoring of patients with schizophrenia spectrum disorder. METHODS: A total of 172 patients with schizophrenia spectrum disorder registered in mental health welfare centers and rehabilitation facilities in Gwangju were recruited. Physical health monitoring was defined by two health behaviors; fasting blood tests within recent 2 years in all participants and routine medical check-ups covered by national insurance within recent 5 years in participants aged 40 years or older. Demographic and clinical characteristics including overweight, metabolic syndrome and knowledge about physical illness were compared according to physical health monitoring. RESULTS: Prevalence of overweight and metabolic syndrome were 62.8% and 40.1%, respectively. The rates of fasting blood tests and routine medical check-ups were 34.9% and 67.9%, respectively. The rates of fasting blood tests were significantly higher in general hospital and university hospital compared to mental hospital or private clinic. Rates of routine medical check-ups were significantly lower in individuals using daily rehabilitation service and smokers. Knowledge about cancer and chronic illness were significantly better in individuals receiving routine medical check-ups compared with those not receiving it. CONCLUSION: Education about physical health should be integrated to mental health service in community mental health center.

PURPOSE: This study was designed to develop a valid and reliable scale for the evaluation of preconception health behavior in women preparing for pregnancy. METHODS: The initial strategy included a literature review, interviews, and construction of a conceptual framework. The preliminary items were evaluated twice for content validity by experts, and modified two preliminary investigations. Participants in the 2 main investigations and the confirmation investigation were tested for reliability and validity of the preliminary scale in women preparing for pregnancy. The data were analyzed for different items exploratory and confirmatory factors. RESULTS: The 5-point Likert scale consisted of 6 factors and 27 items. The 6-factors included ‘hazardous substance factor,’ ‘medical management factor,’ ‘rest and sleep factor,’ ‘stress management factor,’ ‘information acquisition factor,’ and ‘resource preparation factor.’ Goodness of fit of the final research model was very appropriate and based on the following measures: Q=1.98, comparative fit index=.91, Tucker-lewis index=.89, standardized root mean square residual=.07, and root mean square error of approximation=.07. The criterion validity was .64. The reliability coefficient was .92 and the test-retest reliability was .61. CONCLUSION: The study findings indicate that the scale can be used for the development of nursing interventions to promote preconception health behavior in women preparing for pregnancy.

BACKGROUND: This study was designed to investigate the influence of family history of hypertension (FH) on hypertension prevalence, management, and healthy behaviors among Korean adults. METHODS: By using data from the Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2014–2016, a cross-sectional study was performed. The study population included 8,280 individuals who underwent health examination and food frequency questionnaire were divided into two groups based on FH. Participants with one or more first-degree FH classified as having a FH. Health behaviors analyzed were low sodium intake, weight management, no smoking, non-risky drinking, and sufficient physical activity. Multiple logistic regression analyses were used to compare outcome variables (hypertension prevalence, awareness, treatment, control, and healthy behaviors). RESULTS: Of a total of 8,280 subjects, 3,626 (43.8%) participants had FH. Presence of a FH significantly associated with the risk of hypertension prevalence (adjusted odds ratio [aOR], 2.47; 95% confidence interval [CI], 2.01–3.04), awareness (aOR, 1.97; 95% CI, 1.30–2.99), treatment (aOR, 2.61; 95% CI, 1.71–3.98), and control (aOR, 1.77; 95% CI, 1.19–2.64). In contrast, FH was not significantly associated with healthy behaviors. In the subgroup analyses, the normotensives with FH were even slightly less likely to get health check-ups than those without FH (aOR, 0.84; 95% CI, 0.72–0.99). CONCLUSIONS: Although those with FH showed higher prevalence, awareness, treatment, and control rates, health behaviors of those with FH were not higher than those without FH. More attention should be directed to promote the healthy behaviors for management and prevention of hypertension, especially among those with FH.

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to examine whether lifestyle-related factors are associated with obesity in a selected sample of young Korean women. METHODS: This cross-sectional study involved 822 women aged 19–39 years who participated in the Seventh Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey conducted in 2016. Obesity status was defined as general and abdominal obesity. Multiple logistic regression analyses were used to evaluate the association between lifestyle-related factors and obesity status. RESULTS: The prevalence of obesity was 20.3% for general obesity and 17.4% for abdominal obesity. There were negative associations between the energy intake/body weight ratio and general and abdominal obesity. High-risk drinking was significantly associated with general obesity (adjusted odds ratio, 1.747; 95% confidence interval, 1.112–2.745), but was not associated with abdominal obesity. CONCLUSIONS: Among young Korean women aged 19–39 years, high-risk drinking may be a risk factor for general obesity.

BACKGROUND: The health condition of old age is affected by various factors such as economic level, disease condition, and nutrition. With the aging population in Korea, the ratio of single-person households increased rapidly. Research on the health status and nutrition of the elderly in the single-person household is very insufficient. In this study, we compared the health and nutritional status of the elderly by the household type. METHODS: Data from the 2013 to 2014 Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey were used. A total of 2,730 patients were classified into 2 groups (single-person, with family), and general, chronic disease, health behavior, nutrient intake, and food insecurity status were compared by the statistical analysis. RESULTS: Single-person households had a low economic and educational level and a higher percentage of women. In addition, obesity, hypertension, dyslipidemia, stroke, myocardial infarction disease rate was significantly higher. Sing-person households answered that their subjective health status was bad, and their quality of life was low. As a result of analysis of the quality of the diet in the single-person, the intake of protein, calcium, iron, vitamin B2, niacin, and vitamin C was significantly lower. In particular, the intake of calcium was the most insufficient. Food insecurity has also been observed, including the inability to consume diverse and sufficient foods due to economic difficulties. CONCLUSIONS: More attention should be paid to the health of single-person households in elderly population and various policies should be prepared.

PURPOSE: The present study investigated the psychosocial health of disease-free breast cancer survivors who receive health examinations compared to matched non-cancer controls in a community setting. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We used baseline data from the Health Examinee cohort, which is composed of subjects participating in health. The disease-free breast cancer survivors were defined as those who were ≥ 2 years from initial diagnosis of breast cancer who had completed treatment. Females without a history of cancer were randomly selected at 1:4 ratio by 5-year age groups, education, and household income as a comparison group. We analyzed results from the Psychosocial Well-being Index-Short Form (PWI-SF) as a psychosocial health measurement. RESULTS: A total of 347 survivors of breast cancer and 1,388 matched controls were included. Total scores on the PWI-SF were lower in breast cancer survivors than matched non-cancer controls (p=0.006), suggesting a lower level of psychosocial stress in breast cancer survivors. In comparison to the control group, prevalence of drinking, smoking and obesity were lower, while exercising for ≥ 150 min/wk was higher in breast cancer survivors (p < 0.05). These findings suggest that breast cancer survivors have better health behaviors than their noncancer controls. After adjusting for other sociodemographic variables, breast cancer survivors were 36% less likely to be included in the stress group (odds ratio, 0.64; 95% confidence interval, 0.42 to 0.98). CONCLUSION: The disease-free breast cancer survivors resuming daily life demonstrated better psychosocial health status compared to matched non-cancer controls.

BACKGROUND: This study analyzed the relationship between health behaviors and marital adjustment in multicultural couples to evaluate their health status. METHODS: Married couples (70 Korean men and their immigrant wives) completed a structured interview on health behaviors and sociodemographic factors, the Revised Dyadic Adjustment Scale (RDAS), and the Marital Intimacy Scale. Based on the cutoff value of the RDAS, respondents were classified into two groups: high or low dyadic adaptation groups. The collected data were compared with health behavior regarding smoking, alcohol consumption, exercise, and weight. RESULTS: The odds ratio (OR) (95% confidence interval [CI]) by logistic regression with adjustment for age, educational level, career, occupation, length of residence in Korea, nationality, religion, age difference between couple, number of children, monthly income, and proficiency in Korean was 1.279 (1.113–1.492) for unhealthy exercise and 1.732 (1.604–1.887) for unhealthy body weight in female immigrants with low marital adjustment. In Korean husbands with low marital adjustment, the OR (95% CI) was 1.625 (1.232–2.142) for smoking and 1.327 (1.174–1.585) for unhealthy exercise. No significant relationship was found between marital intimacy and health behaviors in female immigrants or Korean husbands. CONCLUSION: More desirable health behaviors were observed in highly adapted couples. Therefore, family physicians should be concerned with marital adjustment and other associative factors to evaluate and improve multicultural couples' health status.

O tempo gasto em atividade física pelos adolescentes em diferentes países é menor do que o recomendado. Considerando que o hábito da inatividade física tende a perdurar ao longo da vida e sendo também um dos principais fatores de risco ligado a diversas doenças crônicas na fase adulta, estratégias têm sido elaboradas com o objetivo de promover a atividade física. O tempo que destinamos a atividade física é diretamente influenciado pelo ambiente físico que frequentamos. Diante do exposto, o objetivo desse estudo consistiu em verificar o efeito de uma intervenção de modificação de ambiente para promoção de atividade física em adolescentes escolares. Trata-se de um ensaio randomizado controlado de base escolar com 7 escolas estaduais do município de Duque de Caxias, região metropolitana do Rio de Janeiro. Participaram do estudo os alunos do 5º e 6º ano dessas escolas. As escolas foram randomizadas em dois grupos: um grupo controle (3 escolas) e um grupo intervenção (4 escolas). Nas escolas intervenção o ambiente foi alterado durante o recesso escolar visando promover aumento de atividade física no retorno às aulas. Material esportivo foi exposto aos alunos e demarcação de quadra para prática de atividade física foi feito nas escolas intervenção. A variável de desfecho foi o tempo gasto em atividade física durante a semana aferido através de questionário validado para escolares. As informações foram coletadas na linha de base no início do ano letivo e no final do ano letivo. Modelos lineares de efeitos mistos foram usados para avaliar o efeito da intervenção no tempo gasto em atividade física. Participaram do estudo 975 crianças (56,7% meninos), com idade média de 11.52 (DP 1.43). Nas turmas de 6º ano, meninos do grupo intervenção apresentaram maior chance de aumentarem o tempo gasto em atividade física após intervenção, com um OR: 1,45 (IC 95% = 1,11 - 1,89.), para os meninos comparados aos meninos do grupo controle. Entre as meninas esse valor foi de OR: 1,44 (IC 95% = 1,06 ­ 1,97). Nas turmas do 5º ano, os meninos do grupo experimental tiveram menor chance de aumentarem o tempo gasto em atividade física que o grupo controle OR: 0,56 (IC 95% = 0,42 ­ 0,76), entre as meninas não foi observada associação. Conclui-se que melhorar as condições do meio ambiente para promoção de atividade física foi eficaz para os adolescentes mais velhos. Trata-se de uma estratégia simples e barata que deve ser melhor explorada nos futuros estudos para promover o tempo gasto em atividade física em escolares. Estudos futuros devem avaliar que tipo de atividade pode ser promovida para os mais jovens

The time spent on physical activity by adolescents in different countries is lower than recommended. Considering that the habit of physical inactivity tends to last throughout life and is also one of the main risk factors linked to several chronic diseases in adulthood, strategies have been elaborated with the objective of promoting physical activity. The time we allocate to physical activity is directly influenced by the physical environment we attend. In view of the above, the objective of this study was to verify the effect of an environment modification intervention to promote physical activity in school adolescents. It is a randomized controlled trial of school base with 7 state schools in the municipality of Duque de Caxias, metropolitan region of Rio de Janeiro. The students in the 5th and 6th years of these schools participated in the study. The schools were randomized into two groups: one control group (3 schools) and one intervention group (4 schools). In the intervention schools, the environment was changed during school recess, aiming to increase physical activity in the return to class. Sports material was exposed to the students and demarcation of court for physical activity practice was done in intervention schools. The outcome variable was the time spent in physical activity during the week measured through a questionnaire validated for schoolchildren. Information was collected at the baseline at the beginning of the school year and at the end of the school year. Linear models of mixed effects were used to evaluate the effect of the intervention on the time spent in physical activity. A total of 975 children (56.7% boys) participated in the study, with a mean age of 11.52 (SD 1.43). In the 6th grade groups, boys in the intervention group had a greater chance of increasing the time spent on physical activity after intervention, with an OR: 1.45 (95% CI = 1.11 - 1.89) for boys compared to the control group. Among girls, this value was OR: 1.44 (95% CI = 1.06 - 1.97). In the 5th grade, the boys in the experimental group had a lower chance of increasing the time spent in physical activity than the control group: OR 0.56 (95% CI = 0.42-0.76); observed association. It was concluded that improving the conditions of the environment for promoting physical activity was effective for older adolescents. It is a simple and inexpensive strategy that should be better explored in future studies to promote the time spent on physical activity in schoolchildren. Future studies should assess what type of activity can be promoted for younger people

INTRODUCTION: Regular aerobic and resistance exercises are recommended to improve functional capacity and quality of life in the elderly. OBJECTIVE: To describe the familiarity of physical education professionals with the recommendation of aerobic and resistance exercise for the elderly, and to identify associated factors. METHODS: We assessed 610 physical education professionals working in fitness academies in the city of São Paulo. Familiarity with the recommendation was assessed using a questionnaire constructed for this study. We assessed the criteria that make up the recommendation of aerobic and resistance exercise, following the American College of Sports Medicine guidelines. The data analysis with statistical significance of p <0.05 was carried out using the chi-square test and multiple logistic regression. RESULTS: The level of knowledge of physical education professionals working in fitness centers, considering fulfilment of the criteria that make up the recommendation of aerobic and resistance exercise for the elderly, was limited, attaining only 9.3% and 12.6%, respectively. Age, number of jobs, completion of a graduate program and reading of scientific papers were factors associated with familiarity with the recommendation of resistance exercise. Factors associated with familiarity with aerobic exercise recommendation were: age, number of jobs and reading of scientific papers. CONCLUSION: The level of familiarity of physical education professionals with the recommendation of aerobic and resistance exercise for older people was low, suggesting the need for better professional training to meet the demand of older people at the fitness centers in the city of Sao Paulo.

INTRODUÇÃO: A autoavaliação do estado de saúde tem sido utilizada em estudos epidemiológicos e representa uma medida de estimativa do nível de saúde. OBJETIVO: Identificar a prevalência e os fatores associados a autoavaliação negativa de saúde em universitários de um curso de Educação Física. MÉTODOS: Estudo epidemiológico transversal, realizado com universitários de um curso de Educação Física. A variável dependente foi a auto avaliação de saúde e as variáveis independentes foram sexo, faixa etária, situação conjugal, tempo na universidade, atividade física de lazer, ingestão de frutas/sucos e verduras/saladas, consumo bebidas alcoólicas, índice de massa corporal, auto avaliação de tempo para relaxar e nível de estresse. Utilizou-se a estatística descritiva e as Razões de Prevalências (RP), estimadas pela regressão de Poisson, nas análises brutas e ajustadas, com nível de significância de 5%. RESULTADOS: Participaram do estudo 111 universitários, com média de idade de 24,7 anos. A prevalência de autoavaliação negativa de saúde foi de 10,1%. Foram associados com maiores prevalências de autoavaliação negativa de saúde os universitários que relataram o consumo irregular de verduras/saladas (RP=9,59; IC95%=1,64-55,96), que estavam com excesso de peso (RP=3,81; IC95%=1,03-14,12), com nível de estresse negativo (RP=8,34; IC95%=2,96-23,48), por outro lado, com menor RP os estudantes de maior faixa etária (RP=0,17; IC95%=0,03-0,82). CONCLUSÃO: A prevalência de autoavaliação negativa de saúde foi baixa e os fatores associados a esse desfecho relacionaram-se aos componentes relacionados a alimentação, ao estado nutricional e autoavaliação de estresse na vida.

INTRODUCTION: The self-rated health has been used in epidemiological studies and represents a measure that indicates the status health overall. OBJECTIVE: To identify the prevalence and factors associated with negative self-rated health in university students of a Physical Education course. METHODOS: Cross-sectional epidemiological study carried out with university students of a Physical Education course. The self-rated health was dependent variable and independent variables were gender, age range, marital status, college time, leisure-in-time physical activity, fruit/juice intake, vegetable/ salad intake, alcohol consumption, body mass index, selfevaluation of time to relax and stress level. The Prevalence Ratios (PR), estimated by Poisson regression, were used in the crude and adjusted analyzes, with a significance level of 5%. RESULTS: Participated 111 university students, with a mean age of 24.7 years. The prevalence of negative self-rated health was 10.1%. The negative perception of health was associated with the students that reported the irregular consumption of vegetables/salads (PR=9.59; 95%CI=1.64-55.96), that were body mass excess (PR=3.81; 95%CI=1.03-14.12), with negative self-evaluation of stress (PR=8.34; 95%CI=2.96-23.48) and with lower RP the students of higher age group (PR=0.17; 95%CI=0.03-0.82). CONCLUSION: The prevalence of negative self-rated health was lower and factors associated were related the foods, nutritional status and negative selfrated stress.

Abstract The aim of this study was systematically review the researches in regard the association of PA of parents and the PA of their children. A literature search was performed in five databases (Medline, Embase, Cinahl, Lilacs and SciELO) using combined terms about youth, PA and social support, with restriction to publications with Brazilian sample and to English and Portuguese language. Thirteen studies were included in this review and was observed a positive association of parental PA and the PA of their children for the majority of the studies (n=11). Only two studies did not observed significant association between PA of parents and their children and, otherwise, it was not observed negative associations in the review. It was observed different associations according to the gender of both parents and children. This findings support the importance for the practice of PA by parents as encouragement for the practice of PA by their children among Brazilians. The strategies to promote the increase in practice of physical activity of children and adolescents of both genders may consider the social support as an important factor, especially in relation to the practice of PA of their parents.

Resumo O objetivo do presente estudo foi revisar sistematicamente estudos que analisaram a associação da prática de atividade física de pais e filhos. Foi realizada uma busca sistemática em cinco bases de dados (Medline, Embase, Cinahl, Lilacs e SciELO), por meio da combinação de termos sobre crianças e adolescentes, atividade física e suporte social, sendo restrita a estudos contendo amostras brasileiras e escritos em Inglês e/ou Português. Foram incluídos treze estudos na presente revisão e foi observada associação positiva da prática de atividade física de pais e filhos na maioria dos estudos (n=11). Somente dois estudos não observaram associação significativa da atividade física de pais e filhos, contudo não foram observadas associações negativas. Foram observadas diferentes associações de acordo com o gênero tanto dos pais quanto dos filhos. Estes achados ressaltam a importância da prática de atividade física dos pais como incentivo à prática de atividade física dos filhos em amostras brasileiras. Estratégias de promoção da prática de atividade física em crianças e adolescentes de ambos os sexos devem considerar o suporte social como um fator importante, especialmente a respeito da prática de atividade física dos pais.
