Acta Biomaterialia, Volume 171, November 2023

This article aligns with Sustainable Development Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities. The research focuses on transitioning the construction industry towards sustainable practices by utilizing local biological materials and developing a construction method for tension-compression anticlastic shellular structures. The use of a fully biodegradable material system and an earthen construction workflow helps minimize the environmental footprint in the built environment. This article aligns with Sustainable Development Goal 3: Good Health and Well-being. The use of polymer-functionalized plant leaf scaffolds as a novel human cell culture platform for tissue engineering applications, specifically for promoting the alignment and elongation of muscle cells, contributes to advancements in healthcare and the development of functional skeletal muscle tissue.

Previous studies have shown that people with HIV are at an increased risk of non-communicable diseases, this systematic review and meta-analysis collates data from 188 studies done in 21 sub-Saharan Africa countries and shows that people with HIV have an increased incidence of multiple NCDs, including hypertension, diabetes, and cervical cancer. Although more research is needed, this results highlight the need for improved treatment and prentative approaches to minimise the risk of people with HIV also developing non-comminicable diseases. Good health and wellbeing should not solely be focused on HIV managment; this study shows the growing risk of other diseases that have to be mitigated.

Technological Forecasting and Social Change, Volume 196, November 2023

In this context, the present study has a primary research objective: to develop a research agenda for entrepreneurial action, identifying key aspects related to STI and the SDGs, and to explore how both concepts are interconnected.

Advances in Nutrition, Volume 14, November 2023

Improving diet quality while simultaneously maintaining planetary health is of critical interest globally. Despite the shared motivation, advancement remains slow, and the research community continues to operate in silos, focusing on certain pairings (diet–climate), or with a discipline-specific lens of a sustainable diet, rather than examining their totality. This review aims to summarize the literature on adherence to a priori defined dietary patterns in consideration of diet quality, metabolic risk factors for noncommunicable diseases (NCDs), environmental impacts, and affordability.

American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Volume 118, November 2023

The environmental burden of food consumption is high in affluent countries like Sweden, and the global food system is accountable for between 21 and 37% of the total anthropogenic global greenhouse gas emissions (GHGE). This paper claims that interventions to improve dietary intake and reduce dietary greenhouse gas emissions (dGHGE) are urgently needed and that adolescence presents a unique time in life to promote sustainable diets. Conclucsion are that food choices and dGHGE per calorie differ by sex in adolescents. Thus, intervention strategies to improve dietary sustainability need to be tailored differently to females and males. Diet quality should also be considered when promoting reduced GHGE diets.
