Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Obesity
  • Law

Barry M. Popkin mainly investigates Obesity, Gerontology, Environmental health, Overweight and Nutrition transition. The Obesity study combines topics in areas such as Body mass index, Epidemiology, Young adult, Developing country and Anthropometry. Barry M. Popkin has researched Gerontology in several fields, including Cross-sectional study, Demography, Adolescent health, Socioeconomic status and Ethnic group.

His Environmental health study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Food intake, China, Food science and Public health. The Underweight research Barry M. Popkin does as part of his general Overweight study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Residence, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His research in Nutrition transition focuses on subjects like Urbanization, which are connected to Social medicine.

His most cited work include:

  • Global nutrition transition and the pandemic of obesity in developing countries (2135 citations)
  • Consumption of high-fructose corn syrup in beverages may play a role in the epidemic of obesity. (1539 citations)
  • Sugar-Sweetened Beverages and Risk of Metabolic Syndrome and Type 2 Diabetes: A meta-analysis (1359 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Barry M. Popkin focuses on Environmental health, Obesity, Gerontology, Demography and Overweight. His research in Environmental health intersects with topics in Food science, Calorie, China, Public health and Socioeconomic status. His research integrates issues of Body mass index, Weight gain and Young adult in his study of Obesity.

His work focuses on many connections between Gerontology and other disciplines, such as Longitudinal study, that overlap with his field of interest in Adolescent health. His Demography research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cross-sectional study, Waist, Breastfeeding, Anthropometry and Ethnic group. His work deals with themes such as Developing country and Development economics, which intersect with Nutrition transition.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental health (33.59%)
  • Obesity (29.29%)
  • Gerontology (25.13%)

  • Environmental health (33.59%)
  • Obesity (29.29%)
  • Demography (22.22%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental health, Obesity, Demography, Calorie and Socioeconomic status. His Environmental health research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ethnic group, Dietary intake, Sugar, National health and National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. He interconnects Body mass index, Food science and Gerontology in the investigation of issues within Obesity.

His Gerontology research incorporates elements of Cross-sectional study, Malnutrition, MEDLINE and Snacking. The concepts of his Demography study are interwoven with issues in Diabetes mellitus, Waist, Confounding and Nutrition transition. His Socioeconomic status study combines topics in areas such as Quality, Per capita and Agricultural economics.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Beverage purchases from stores in Mexico under the excise tax on sugar sweetened beverages: observational study (440 citations)
  • Sweetening of the global diet, particularly beverages: patterns, trends, and policy responses (312 citations)
  • In Mexico, Evidence Of Sustained Consumer Response Two Years After Implementing A Sugar-Sweetened Beverage Tax (272 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Law
  • Statistics

His main research concerns Environmental health, Calorie, Per capita, Gerontology and Obesity. His studies deal with areas such as Food science, Dietary intake, Poverty, National health and Ethnic group as well as Environmental health. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sugar, Caloric intake, National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey and Saturated fat in addition to Calorie.

His Gerontology research integrates issues from Cross-sectional study, Psychological intervention and Snacking. His work carried out in the field of Obesity brings together such families of science as Epidemiology, Systematic review, Meta-analysis, Socioeconomic status and Malnutrition.
