Of the 28 obesity interventions with complete data that we analysed, 13 (46 percent) had a favourable effect on both adiposity and BP and 11 interventions (39 percent) had a significant effect on the reduction of BP, even if they did not affect adiposity, informed lead author Youfa Wang from University at Buffalo. (Read: Why is childhood obesity on the rise? ) It is important to identify obesity intervention programmes that can help children develop healthy lifestyles and keep BP at an optimal level because this helps them avoid many long-term health consequences, he added. The researchers examined more than 130 studies published between 1985 and 2013 that were conducted in high-income counties worldwide. Wang and his research team now aim to assess the additional benefits of obesity prevention programmes for children and to develop the most effective programmes possible.
