    • Parental Prepuberty Overweight and Offspring Lung Function 

      Lønnebotn, Marianne; Calciano, Lucia; Johannessen, Ane; Jarvis, Deborah L; Abramson, Michael J.; Benediktsdottir, Bryndis; Bråbäck, Lennart; Franklin, Karl A.; Godoy, Raúl; Holm, Mathias; Janson, Christer; Jögi, Nils Oskar; Kirkeleit, Jorunn; Malinovschi, Andrei; Pereira-Vega, Antonio; Schlunssen, Vivi; Dharmage, Shyamali C.; Accordini, Simone; Real, Francisco Gomez; Svanes, Cecilie (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      In a recent study we found that fathers’ but not mothers’ onset of overweight in puberty was associated with asthma in adult offspring. The potential impact on offspring’s adult lung function, a key marker of general and ...
