The authors of this paper developed and tested a culturally appropriate food picture-sort frequency tool that is feasible and acceptable to both Navajo children and adults. This tool and its indices have the potential to measure the change for school-based intervention studies among the Navajo Nation because of its cultural appropriateness, ease of administration and low burden, and the convergent validity and reliability of its indices.
This Article supports SDG 3 by assessing the cost-effectiveness of the "Birthing in Our Community" service in reducing preterm births in Australian First Nations families compared to standard care.
This Article supports SDG 3 by highlighting the effectiveness of a co-designed intervention for providing First Nations care within Western health services, which could address current gaps in respiratory health outcomes for Aboriginal children.
This Article supports SDG 3 and 10 by showing that among Indigenous children in Brazil (of the Guarani birth cohort), severely compromised living conditions were noted, and inequalities in the frequency of social and environmental risk factors between the Indigenous children. The authors note that policies are needed to improve housing, water and sanitation, and wealth conditions among people in Indigenous communities.
This paper concludes that In the participating Dene population, vitamin D, fiber, and calcium intake were low, resulting in deficiencies for the majority of the participants and that Poor nutritional status might be because of several complex and intersecting challenges experienced by northern Indigenous communities, such as the historical context of colonialism, remote food insecurity, and social and environmental inequities. It is suggested that nutrition education, financial interventions, and store-food pricing policies should be put in place to facilitate access to market food, and culturally adequate initiatives, such as community harvest programs, should be put in place to facilitate better access to TFs/CFs.
This Article supports SDG 3 by examining whether birth-dose vaccination, compared with vaccination at 6-8 weeks or no vaccination, is effective in preventing horizonal transmission of HBV in children aged 0-5 years of uninfected mothers.

To determine parent based perceptions of a SEND cycle training programme, factors which predict intention to cycle more and ongoing barriers to cycling.
This Article supports Sustainable Development Goal 3 by showing a positive association between hearing loss without hearing aid use and dementia in adults aged 40-69 years in the UK. The authors analysed all-cause dementia, as well as specific types including Alzheimer's disease. Hearing loss was associated with increased risk of dementia, and using hearing aids was associated with a similar risk of dementia to no hearing loss, suggesting that hearing aid use in people with hearing loss could reduce dementia risk.

Nitric Oxide - Biology and Chemistry, Volume 134-135, 1 May 2023

Nitric Oxide can act as both protecting and aggravating factor in Alzheimer's Disease. Nitric oxide can be considered as a neurotoxic factor in Alzheimer's Disease. Nitric Oxide induces neuro plasticity, neuroprotection, neurogenesis, long-term potentiation, and myelination. Drugs based on Nitric Oxide have shown promising results in Alzheimer's Disease. Nitric Oxide can via sundry ways ameliorate memory formation.
