A nudge experiment was performed to evaluate the effectiveness of presenting a menu with the dish-of-the-day (DoD) vs. a menu with free choice to facilitate consumer choice towards a fully plant-based, nutritious and tasty meal in foodservice setting. A menu card in control condition included the appetizer, the three mains and a dessert. The menu card in the intervention included the appetizer, eggplant lasagne as the DoD, and the dessert. Thirty-three volunteers ate twice at Future Consumer Lab in Copenhagen, once in each condition (67% women; mean age 25y; SD2.1).

The link between slavery and environmental destruction and climate change has been shown to be circular, compelling, and calamitous. Climate change drives environmental outcomes that increase the risk of enslavement. Slaves are commonly forced into work highly destructive to the environment, which then increases the pressures on vulnerable populations.

This paper supports SDGs 3 and 10 by highlighting that people living with disabilities are 16–62% less likely to meet current physical activity guidelines than the general population, with direct consequences for their cardiovascular and musculoskeletal fitness, cardiometabolic risk factors, and brain and mental health outcomes. This paper emphasises the need for coordinated efforts, policies, and tailored interventions to ensure all people living with disabilities worldwide are able to fully participate in physical activity.

This Article addresses SDG 3 by providing updated estimates of the global burden of cancer attributable to alcohol consumption, including stratification by sex and country, and calculations of contributions to the burden by different levels of alcohol intake. The findings show 4·1% (95% CI 3·1 to 5·3) of all new cases of cancer in 2020 were attributable to alcohol consumption, and showed differences in population attributable fractions between world regions. The results highlight the need for effective intervention to reduce the burden of alcohol-attributable cancers.

This Article addresses SDG 3 by modelling the global, regional, and national mortality burden associated with non-optimal ambient temperature between 2000 and 2019. The study used data on 130 million deaths in 43 countries and found that, overall, non-optimal temperatures were associated with 74 excess deaths per 100 000 residents. There was substantial geographical variation in this burden. Overall there was a large decrease in the cold-related excess death ratio, and a moderate increase in the heat-related excess death ratio. The findings could be used in developing preparedness and prevention strategies to reduce weather-related health impacts in the short-term and under longer-term climate change scenarios.
