International Scholarly Research Notices has retracted the article titled “Physical Activity: An Important Adaptative Mechanism for Body-Weight Control” [1]. The article was found to contain a substantial amount of material from the following published articles: “Tappy, L., Binnert, C. and Schneiter, P. (2003) ‘Energy expenditure, physical activity and body-weight control’, Proceedings of the Nutrition Society, 62(3), pp. 663–666. doi: 10.1079/PNS2003280,” “James A. Levine: Nonexercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT): environment and biology American Journal of Physiology - Endocrinology and Metabolism Published 1 May 2004 Vol. 286 no. 5, E675–E685 DOI: 10.1152/ajpendo.00562.2003,” and “Stephen A Harrison, Christopher Paul Day: Recent advances in clinical practice: Benefits of lifestyle modification in NAFLD. Gut 2007;56:12 1760-1769 Published 2 October 2007 doi: 10.1136/gut.2006.112094.” The first author Carmine Finelli accepts responsibility for this and apologizes to Tappy et al., Levine, and Harrison and Day.

Updated August 17, 2017, to include the similarity with Harrison and Day.
