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.
Understanding the regional influence of dermatologic disease is critical to developing a concerted and sustained global effort toward reducing this burden. A relationship exists between socioeconomic status and certain dermatoses. Resources should be directed at countries with high disability-adjusted life-years to create influential interventions in the Caribbean.
This cross-sectional study examined whether levels of soluble Aβ42 are higher in amyloid-positive normal cognition (NC) individuals compared to mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer's disease.

Climate change has accelerated the melting of Himalayan glaciers, with profound impacts on the planetary health realms of the Himalayan region. The complexity has been captured and mapped to explain linkages between melting glaciers and associated planetary health issues to help planning for better planetary health in nine subsystem categories: ecological services, disaster, water security, food security, energy security, livelihood and culture, migration, conflict and public health. In addition to the main SDGs, this article is indirectly related to SDG 1 (No Poverty) and SDG 10 (Reduced Inequalities).
This paper reviews recent analyses of intensifying seasonal and year-round extreme heat exposure as a slow-onset event. It focuses on occupational contexts, including impacts on worker productivity, health and wellbeing, reduced GDP, and the viability of economic sectors. It closes with an indication of tools available to assess and address these risks. In addition to the main SDGs this article is indirectly related to SDG 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure) and SDG 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production).
The study draws from sociological and psychological perspectives on mental health outcomes among survivors of violence and abuse to show how potential for individual transformation is differentially constructed through personal life trajectories and intersectional social relations. Integrating a psychological perspective into climate change and sustainability thinking suggests a more equitable way to think about the individual’s role in societal-scale shifts. In addition to the main SDGs this article is indirectly related to SDG 13 (Climate Action) and SDG 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production).

This paper provides a synthesis of knowledge on inter-connected categories of non-economic loss and damage induced by climate change in the Pacific Islands region and presents identified knowledge gaps and possibilities for future research. In addition to the main SDGs, this article is indirectly related to SDG 1.4.2 (Vulnerable and indigenous people’s land), SDG 4.7 (Value-driven culture) and SDG 10 (Reduced Inequalities).
Osteoporotic fragility fractures are highly prevalent. Fragility fractures of the radius or ulna and humerus peaked in winter. Fragility fractures of the ankle, foot, tibia or fibula peaked in summer. Weather was associated with fragility fractures.
