Susanne Lempert forsvarede tirsdag den 30. august Ph.D.-afhandlingen; "Dairy intake, Caries & BMI".
Ph.D.-afhandlingen bygger på 3. artikler og en sammenfatning.
Susannes Lemperts undersøgelser har ført til nedenstående konklusioner:
*An inverse association between caries and subsequent changes in BMI was found among children with well-educated mothers, suggesting that, high caries experience may be a marker for low future risk of overweight among the more advantaged children.
*An inverse association between dairy intake and caries experience measured as DMFS was found *An inverse association was seen between dairy intake, as well as milk intake or intake of dairy components and changes in caries, measured as DMFS.
This association was inverse, meaning that a high intake of dairy products seems to be protective from future caries incidence *An association between milk consumption and BMI at age 9 and 15 years was found *No evidence was found of an association between milk consumption or changes in milk consumption and subsequent changes in measures of body fatness *Socioeconomic status was found to modify some of the investigated associations.
