The study suggests that exposure to PFAS may disrupt energy balance and body composition in adolescents, underscoring the importance of further research to confirm the association and mitigate potential health impacts, thus contributing to Sustainable Development Goal 3 (Good Health and Well-being).
The study underscores the significance of indoor PM2.5-10 pollution from coal combustion as an environmental risk factor for the prognosis of COPD patients, emphasizing the need for targeted prevention and control strategies during the heating season to protect cardiopulmonary health and promote progress towards Sustainable Development Goal 3 (Good Health and Well-being).
The research supports Sustainable Development Goal 3 (SDG 3) by identifying factors affecting public health, such as indoor airflow patterns and outdoor temperatures, and providing recommendations for epidemic prevention and control measures.
This study demonstrates the importance of community-based approaches to understand how much MIYCN (Maternal, Infant, and Young Child Nutrition) training and counseling are intertwined, indicating the need for interventions to address both using a multipronged approach that addresses barriers across all levels of the socioecological model, taking the local context into account.
This Article supports Sustainable Development Goal 3 by developing projections of the economic burden of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, up to 2050. The study predicts that the burden will be $16.9 trillion in 2050, compared with $2.8 trillion in 2019. The authors note that more funding is needed for research into prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease.

An investigation, linking particularly well to SDGs 10 and 5 focusing on equality, which shows how researchers can actively engage with equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in their work, and how EDI considerations must remain an ongoing effort. The authors, working in the field of responsible research and innovation (RRI), intentionally employed EDI in their project recruitment, and reflect here on the adjustments they made as a result. The recruitment of persons with disabilities led to some particularly interesting and new insights in this study looking at trustworthiness in the design of autonomous systems with evolving functionality.
This Review supports SDGs 3 and 5, focusing on the gendered association between unpaid labour and mental health, particularly in relation to the fact that women do more hours of unpaid labour worldwide than men. The Review found that unpaid labour is associated with worse mental health in women than in men.
