    Concerns exist that the positive association of physical activity with better lung function, which has been suggested in previous longitudinal studies in smokers, is due to reverse causation. To investigate this, we applied ...

    Background: Although physical activity has many known health benefits, its association with lung function in childhood/adolescence remains unclear. We examined the association of physical-activity trajectories between 11 ...
  • Benavides, Fernando G. (Fernando García) (Elsevier, 2020)
    El objetivo de este trabajo es revisar la relación imperfecta entre causalidad y responsabilidad, desde la mirada de la salud laboral. En este espacio académico y profesional se produce frecuentemente esta tensión al abordar ...
