The original version of this Review Article contained calculation errors within the abstract:
“Body mass index (−0.96; 95% CI: −2.30, 0.37)” has been corrected to “Body mass index (−0.73; 95% CI: −1.84, 0.38)”, “BMI I2 statistic 92% (95% Confidence Interval: [82%, 96%]” was corrected to “BMI I2 statistic 92% (95% Confidence Interval: [83%, 96%]”, “body fat percentage (0.19; −1.2,1.57)” has been corrected to “body fat percentage (−0.11; −1.56, 1.34)”, I2 statistic 85% (95% [56%, 95%])” was corrected to “body fat “I2 statistic 86% (95% [59%, 95%])”, and “diastolic blood pressure (−0.74; −2.34, 0.86)” has been corrected to “diastolic blood pressure (−0.99; −2.73, 0.74)”, “diastolic blood pressure I2 statistic 28% (95% [0%, 73%])” has been changed to “diastolic blood pressure I2 statistic 44% (95% [0%, 81%])”. These corrections have been repeated in the results section and Figs. 2, 5 and 7.
These errors have now been corrected in the HTML and PDF versions of this Article.
