This study aimed to to examine the associations between dietary nutrient density and climate impact and MI and stroke HRs, thereby investigating the co-benefits and trade-offs between nutrition, dietary climate impact, and cardiovascular health, within a population-based prospective cohort in northern Sweden. Importantly, the results indicate an association between lower dietary climate impact and higher MI HRs for men, both when nutrient density was below median values and when nutrient density was not considered. For women, there was no significant association between dietary climate impact and MI HR, although a trend similar to that for men was noted when nutrient density was below median values. Furthermore, no association between nutrient density and MI or stroke HRs was observed, except for a protective effect against stroke among women with higher nutrient density when nutrient density was analyzed without considering climate impact.
TK2d has significant negative impacts on many aspects of patients’ lives (Fig. 1). The largest impact was on physical function; however, substantial psychosocial impacts were also reported.
TK2d is an ultrarare autosomal recessive mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome. Nucleoside therapy improves or stabilizes disease across key outcomes including survival, ambulation, and requirement for mechanical ventilation. However, little is known about the effects of nucleoside therapy treatment of TK2d from the patient's perspective. This study sought to address this knowledge gap.

This article advances SDG # 3, 5, 7, 10, 11, and 13 by measuring the strong relationship between air pollution and adverse pregnancy outcomes including low birth weight and preterm birth. It shows that fossil-fuel based pollution has serious health consequences, mitigation of which could have immediate health benefits, particularly in high-pollution environments. T
Community supervision is an opportunity for convicted prisoners to receive treatment for substance abuse and psychiatric disorders and thus prevent avoidable deaths.
COVID-19 did not appear to produce a lasting change in the prevalence of psychological distress, but it did change the way people manage their mental health and access mental health care.
This Review supports SDG 3 by examining the effects of parental leave (ie, maternity, paternity, or family leave; protected leave of absence from work following birth of a baby to care for the baby) on postpartum mental health. The study found that parental leave can be protective against poorer mental health - particularly paid leave of at least 2-3 months in mothers. More generous parental leave was associated with better outcomes.

This Article supports SDGs 3, 5 and 9 by outlining how, in the current legal landscape, to reduce the collection and documentation of reproductive health information in nuclear medicine in light of the SCOTUS decision on Dobbs v Jackson Women's Health Organization that overturned a 49-year-old federal recognition of abortion rights.

This Viewpoint supports SDG 3 by discussing the need for reimagining India's health system and the importance of an inclusive approach for universal health coverage.
This Article supports SDGs 3 and 13 by comparing the costs of implementing climate change mitigation policies with the economic benefits of avoiding heat-related labour productivity loss through climate change mitagation. The authors find that a substantial proportion (51.8%) of the costs of climate change mitigation would be offset by the economic benefits gained from avoiding labour productivity losses. There were geographical variation, with the benefits exceeding the costs in southeast Asia, Brazil, and Mexico.
This Personal View supports SDGs 3 and 13 by assessing how to integrate carbon emissions into health technology assessments and discusses how international effort will be required to ensure that the carbon footprints of commonly used health-care products are freely available.
