ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the study conducted to examine the association between physical activity and metabolic syndrome (MetS) in middle-aged Japanese individuals. It mentions that the association between physical activity and MetS was analyzed with the use of logistic regression. It concludes that the moderate physical activity decreases the risk of developing MetS and pre-MetS in Japanese.

    Aging-related decline in functional mobility is associated with loss of independence. This decline may be mitigated through programs of physical activity. Despite reports of aging-related mobility impairment in middle-aged adults, this age group has been largely overlooked in terms of exercise...

    Background: Pedometers are becoming widely accepted for physical activity measurement. To use step data effectively, an index which categorizes steps/day by < 5000, = 5000, = 7500, = 10,000, and = 12,500 steps/ day has been previously proposed. However, evidence is insufficient to validate this...
