TL;DR: It was concluded that the prevalence of physical inactivity among adolescents in São Paulo was high in all the geographic areas evaluated, and that sociodemographic and behavioral factors contributed significantly to physical in activity.
Abstract: Objective: To describe the prevalence of physical inactivity and associated factors among high school students from state’s public schools in the city of Sao Paulo, state of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Methods: Sixteen state’s public schools were randomly selected according to the geographic areas of the city (North, South, East, and West). The sample consisted of 3,845 high school students in 2006. Physical inactivity was measured using the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (short IPAQ) and was defined as practicing moderate and/or vigorous physical activity for a period of less than 300 minutes per week. The independent variables analyzed were: gender, age, socioeconomic level, geographic area of the city, awareness of the “Agita Sao Paulo” program, participation in physical education classes, smoking, alcohol intake and time spent per day watching television. Threelevel Poisson regression was used for assessing the variables, with a significance level of p < 0.05. Results: The general prevalence of physical inactivity among adolescents in Sao Paulo was 62.5% (95%CI 60.5-64.1). The factors associated with physical inactivity were gender, age, socioeconomic level, geographic area of the city, awareness of the “Agita Sao Paulo” program, non-participation in physical education classes, smoking, alcohol intake and time spent per day watching television. Conclusion: It was concluded that the prevalence of physical inactivity among adolescents in Sao Paulo was high in all the geographic areas evaluated, and that sociodemographic and behavioral factors contributed significantly to physical inactivity.

TL;DR: It is demonstrated that trans-caryophyllene reduced both acute and chronic pain in mice, which may be mediated through the opioid and endocannabinoid systems.
Abstract: Trans-caryophyllene is a sesquiterpene present in many medicinal plants' essential oils, such as Ocimum gratissimum and Cannabis sativa. In this study, we evaluated the antinociceptive activity of trans-caryophyllene in murine models of acute and chronic pain and the involvement of trans-caryophyllene in the opioid and endocannabinoid systems. Acute pain was determined using the hot plate test (thermal nociception) and the formalin test (inflammatory pain). The chronic constriction injury (CCI) of the sciatic nerve induced hypernociception was measured by the hot plate and von Frey tests. To elucidate the mechanism of action, mice were pre-treated with naloxone or AM630 30 min before the trans-caryophyllene treatment. Afterwards, thermal nociception was evaluated. The levels of IL-1β were measured in CCI-mice by ELISA. Trans-caryophyllene administration significantly minimized the pain in both the acute and chronic pain models. The antinociceptive effect observed during the hot plate test was reversed by naloxone and AM630, indicating the participation of both the opioid and endocannabinoid system. Trans-caryophyllene treatment also decreased the IL-1β levels. These results demonstrate that trans-caryophyllene reduced both acute and chronic pain in mice, which may be mediated through the opioid and endocannabinoid systems.

Abstract: as atitudes em relacao as pessoas com as necessidades especiais representam um dos mais importantes fatores para o sucesso da escola inclusiva. Para avaliar as atitudes do professor quanto a inclusao de portadores de paralisia cerebral (PPC), um questionario com uma escala de atitude foi aplicado em 68 professores de ensino fundamental. Foi evidenciada discordância com relacao a inclusao de PPC na escola. A analise fatorial levou a seis fatores que podem explicar tais atitudes: como ensinar PPC em classes normais; sentimentos e emocoes de professores na presenca de PPC; contato com os PPC; o tipo de educacao mais adequado para os PPC; rendimento escolar da sala de aula com a presenca de um PPC; e preconceito na sala de aula. Dissonância entre as dimensoes afetiva, cognitiva e denotativa das atitudes dos professores foi constatada, a discordância e a dissonância evidenciadas podem representar barreiras quanto a inclusao escolar de PPC.

TL;DR: The results show that educational and preventive actions should be proposed to build healthy eating habits from childhood, taking into consideration the cultural, behavioral and emotional factors associated with diet.
Abstract: OBJECTIVE: This study described and discussed the introduction of processed foods to the diets of children attending the nurseries of daycare centers, considering the recommendation of the Ministry of Health for a healthy diet. METHODS: This cross-sectional study included 270 children attending nurseries of eight public and not-for-profit daycare centers in Sao Paulo city. A pre-coded and structured 11-question questionnaire was used to evaluate the introduction of processed foods. For each type of food analyzed, the corresponding age in months was recorded as well as assessed as to whether it was in agreement with the 8th step of the Dietary Guide. The chi-square test was used for determining the associations. The studied variables were mother's age, education level and working status and family income. RESULTS: The results showed that approximately 2/3 of the studied children under 12 months of age were offered foods with obesogenic potential, such as instant noodles, snacks, sandwich cookies, powdered juice, soft drinks and candy/lollipop/chocolate bars. Children born to younger mothers, with low education level and lower income are most vulnerable to the feeding error of introducing processed foods prematurely. CONCLUSION: These results show that educational and preventive actions should be proposed to build healthy eating habits from childhood. Efficient and in-depth campaigns aiming at promoting the consumption of fruits and vegetables are also needed, taking into consideration the cultural, behavioral and emotional factors associated with diet.
