Default Obesity in Barbados: article compilation
by Narkissos 11-22-2008, 12:17 PM

Articles not hosted on my forum, but relevant to the Barbadian public:

Obesity in primary care in Barbados: prevalence and perceptions:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17682239

Hypertension; diabetes; and obesity in Barbados:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7888992


The relationship of body mass index and waist-hip ratio on the 9-year incidence of diabetes and hypertension in a predominantly African-origin population:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18652984

(^^i,e, the relationship between increased fat around the waist to illness in black people)


Obese African Americans: the prevalence of dyslipidemia, hypertension, and diabetes mellitus:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15328940


Prevalence of obesity and associated sex-specific factors in an African-origin population:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17985506

Prevalence and Risk Factors Associated With Obesity in the Elderly in Barbados:
http://jah.sagepub.com/cgi/content/abstract/18/2/240

Changing nutritional patterns in the Caribbean and their implications for health:
http://www.unu.edu/Unupress/food/8F142e/8F142E03.htm

Prevalence of obesity (weight for height >120% of standard) in persons over 15 years of age in selected Caribbean countries: [diagram]
http://www.unu.edu/Unupress/food/8F142e/8F142E04.GIF

Age-adjusted rates for mortality due to nutrition-related chronic non-communicable: diseases (Rates for Barbados, Grenada, and Saint Christopher and Nevis not adjusted for age): [diagram]
http://www.unu.edu/Unupress/food/8F142e/8F142E05.GIF

Misperceptions, inactivity and maternal factors may drive obesity among Barbadian adolescents:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17572934

(^^A study by Barbados' own 'eat better' advocate: Dr. Henry Fraser)

Diabetes in the English-speaking Caribbean:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15030653

(^^Another study by Dr. Henry Fraser)

Obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and vegetarian status among Seventh-Day Adventists in Barbados: preliminary results
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12723010

(^^Another study by Dr. Henry Fraser)




The take-home message?

Our people are fat... and even the 'educated' are ignorant where the maintenance of health is concerned.

It is encouraging that studies done in the Caribbean are being read and accepted as academically sound worldwide.

It is also encouraging that people are coming to our little area to document our daily lives.

It is particularly troubling however, that this is what they are documenting and circulating.

The WHO documentation reads like a tourism pamphlet: Fat, happy, and laid-back natives are the norm.

It is my goal, in posting this, to make my fellow Barbadians aware of the state of our nation's health.

Take responsibility guys!

As a beer belly *is* fat... that'd be a yes.

Beer bellies indicate insulin resistance.

Beer bellies places an individual at a higher risk for heart disease, insulin resistance, and type-2 diabetes.

So yes... they're fat...and at risk, much like an obese individual would be.
