PITANGA, Cristiano Penas Seara et al. Physical activity as a protective factor against cardiovascular comorbidities in obese women. Rev. bras. cineantropom. desempenho hum. [online]. 2010, vol.12, n.5, pp.324-330. ISSN 1980-0037.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5007/1980-0037.2010V12N5P324.

The objective of this study was to analyze the protective effect of physical activity (PA) on cardiovascular comorbidities (CC) in obese women. A cross-sectional study was conducted on 387 obese women with a body mass index (BMI) > 30 kg/m2. Logistic regression analysis was used to estimate odds ratios (OR) with a 95% confidence interval and to evaluate the association between PA and CC. Data were analyzed using the Stata 7.0 program. After adjustment for age, PA was associated with CC [OR = 0.11 (0.04-0.25)]. This association continued to be significant after stratification by ethnic origin, marital status and BMI. Analysis of the dose-response effect showed a more marked protective effect on CC for very active women. PA should be recommended for obese women in order to prevent CC.
