  1. 1. Energy Metabolic Stress Syndrome : Impact of Physical Activity of Different Intensity and Duration

    Author : Stefan Branth; Leif Hambraeus; Gunnar Ronquist; Mats Stridsberg; Lennart Kaijser; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medicine; energy; ATP; metabolism; nutrition; body-composition; physical-activity; stress; insulin-resistance; ion-pumps; intracellular swelling and -shrinkage; taurine; reactive oxygen species; Medicin;

    Abstract : All living cell functions require an ongoing supply of energy derived from carbohydrates, lipids and proteins with their own pathways of breakdown. All of them end up in the oxidation of reduced coenzymes, yielding chemically-bound energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). READ MORE

  2. 2. Physical activity and energy expenditure in clinical settings using multisensor activity monitors

    Author : Daniel Arvidsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Physical activity; energy expenditure; children; activity monitors; multisensors; validity; reliability; congenital heart defects; aerobic fitness;

    Abstract : Background: Objective methods need to replace subjective methods for accurate quantification of physical activity. To be used in clinical settings objective methods have to show high reliability, validity and feasibility. The commonly used activity monitors are unable to detect the variety of physical activities.

  3. 3. Essays on energy efficiency, environmental regulation and labor demand in Swedish industry

    Author : Golnaz Amjadi; Lars Persson; Tommy Lundgren; Luis Orea; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Energy efficiency improvement; rebound effect; stochastic frontier analysis; data envelopment analysis; stochastic energy demand frontier model; persistent and transient energy inefficiency; energy inefficiency; environmental expenditure and environmental investment costs; output demand elasticity; Economics; nationalekonomi;

    Abstract : Paper [I] Energy efficiency improvement (EEI) benefits the climate and matters for energy security. The potential emission and energy savings due to EEI may however not fully materialize due to the rebound effect. READ MORE

  4. 4. Dietary intake, nutritional status and energy metabolism in adolescents with severe obesity - Effects of gastric bypass surgery

    Author : Pia Henfridsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Roux-en-Y gastric bypass; metabolic bariatric surgery; adolescents; dietary assessment; body composition; micronutrient intake; medication adherence; vitamin deficiencies; energy intake; energy expenditure; doubly labeled water;

    Abstract : Background and aims: Roux-en-Y gastric bypass is an effective obesity treatment in adults and is becoming established in adolescents. Information is scarce on long-term changes in dietary intake, nutritional status and energy metabolism in adolescents undergoing gastric bypass. READ MORE

  5. 5. Green consumption energy use and carbon dioxide emission

    Author : Eva Alfredsson; Einar Holm; Neil Swan; Kerstin Westin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Social and economic geography; Energy consumption; Carbon dioxide emission; Energy intensity; Carbon intensity; Life cycle assessment; Consumption patterns; Lifestyles; Systems analysis; Microsimulation modelling; Demography; Sustainability; Rebound effects; Substitution effects; Kulturgeografi; Human geography; Kulturgeografi; Social and Economic Geography; kulturgeografi;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to explore the quantitative potential to reduce energy requirements and CO2 emissions through changed patterns of consumption, given unchanged levels of consumption expenditure. The thesis question is analysed using a systems analysis approach which in this case means that life cycle assessment data on energy requirements and CO2 emissions related to household consumption are combined with a financial and behavioural analysis to make sure that the budget constraint is kept and that both the first and second order effects of adopting a green consumption pattern are analysed.
