    Risk factors for asthma among schoolchildren who participated in a case-control study in urban Uganda

    Harriet Mpairwe et al.
    Asthma risk among schoolchildren increases depending on area of residence in early life, from rural to town to city, and this risk increases further with other known risk factors.

    Heterogeneous contributions of change in population distribution of body mass index to change in obesity and underweight

    NCD Risk Factor Collaboration (NCD-RisC)
    Changes in the prevalence of underweight, total obesity, and severe obesity are largely driven by shifts in the distribution of body mass index.

    Differential occupational risks to healthcare workers from SARS-CoV-2 observed during a prospective observational study

    David W Eyre et al.
    Risk factors for SARS-CoV-2 infection in healthcare workers included caring for Covid-19 patients, Black or Asian ethnicity, and Covid-19-positive household contacts, whereas a bundle of PPE-related measures protected ICU staff.

    High-phytate/low-calcium diet is a risk factor for crystal nephropathies, renal phosphate wasting, and bone loss

    Ok-Hee Kim et al.
    A high-phytate-low Ca2+ diet causes crystal nephropathies, renal phosphate wasting, and bone disease in rats, whereas high Ca2+ intake ameliorates the detrimental effects of a high-phytate diet.

    Perinatal granulopoiesis and risk of pediatric asthma

    Benjamin A Turturice et al.
    Perinatal granulopoiesis and cord blood serum PGLYRP-1, a specific granule protein, are altered prior to onset of childhood asthma and provide potential targets for early identification of at-risk populations.
