Does body mass index modify the association between physical activity and screen time with cardiometabolic risk factors in adolescents? Findings from a country-wide survey

21 Nov 2016F V Cureau, U Ekelund, K V Bloch and B D Schaan

Moderate and vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and screen time (ST) are independently associated with cardiometabolic risk; the association with ST, however, appears modified by BMI. Normal-weight adolescents should be encouraged to increase MVPA, whereas a combination of increasing MVPA and decreasing ST is recommended in those who are overweight or obese.
