It is estimated that 86 million adult Americans have prediabetes and with that, a risk of developing T2DM (type 2 diabetes) within one in ten patients.

About 29 million people have actual diabetes, most with T2DM. It was estimated in 2012 that about 208,000 people under the age of 20 have diabetes in the United States, but there is little data available on the prevalence of diabetes in the adolescent population. A recent study looking at 12-19 year olds from 2005-2014 found the prevalence of diabetes at 0.8%, with 28.5% undiagnosed and the prevalence of prediabetes 17.7%, more common among boys (22%) than girls (13.2%). With about 9% of the total US population having diabetes, this a public health issue of considerable proportion.

Physical activity is important for a healthy lifestyle and quality of life. For example, parks can provide opportunities for physical activity for both children and adults in their neighborhood (1). A study in 20 neighborhood parks in Durham, North Carolina with 2,712 children and adolescents showed that the type of activity area and presence of other active children were positively associated with physical activity, while the presence of a parent was negatively associated (1). Results showed that physical activity of girls was more strongly affected by social effects (like other active children), whereas physical activity of boys was more strongly influenced by the availability of park facilities (1).

A study from Finland of 37,699 adults looked at childhood adverse psychosocial factors and adult neighborhood disadvantage to understand if there was a link to increased cardiovascular disease (2). They found that combined exposure to high childhood adversity and high adult disadvantage was associated with cardiovascular disease risk factors (hypertension, dyslipidemia, diabetes, obesity, smoking, heavy alcohol use and physical inactivity), while exposure to high childhood adversity or high adult neighborhood disadvantage alone was not significantly associated with cardiovascular disease (2). Another study with 1,842 adults from Brazil looked at the local retail food environment and consumption of fruits and vegetables and sugar-sweetened beverages (3).

They found that availability in neighbourhoods was associated with regular fruits and vegetables consumption, but regular fruits and vegetables consumption prevalence was significantly lower among lowerincome individuals living in neighbourhoods with fewer supermarkets and fresh produce markets. A greater variety of sugar-sweetened beverages was associated with a 15 % increase in regular SSB consumption.
