, this review found that interventions focusing on sedentary behavior alone produced larger reductions in sedentary time than interventions with a focus on physical activity, or those containing both physical activity and sedentary behavior components. These findings are supported by two subsequent

in children. 15 Using data from 20,871 children 4–8 years of age, Ekelund et al 16 reported that higher MVPA was associated with lower systolic blood pressure and triglycerides and higher HDL-C within tertiles of sedentary time; however, there was no association between sedentary behavior and risk

Thus, estimates of sedentary time include only waking hours or daytime napping. Data were included in analyses if they met the following valid wear
