  1. Rapid increase in the risk of heat-related mortality

    NATURE COMMUNICATIONS, v.14, n.1, article ID 4894, 10p, 2023

    Heat-related mortality has been identified as one of the key climate extremes posing a risk to human health. Current research focuses largely on how heat mortality increases with mean global temperature rise, but it is unclear how much climate change will increase the frequency and severity of ex...

    The World Organization of Family Doctors (WONCA) Air Health Train the Trainer Program was a pilot educational programme that focused on a key aspect of planetary health: the intersection of air pollution, human health, and climate change. In this Viewpoint, we-the coordinators of the training pro...

  3. Commentaries on Viewpoint: Hoping for the best, prepared for the worst: can we perform remote data collection in sport sciences?

    JOURNAL OF APPLIED PHYSIOLOGY, v.133, n.6, p.1433, 2022

    to the editor: Remote data collection (1) is of growing interest, especially in sport nutrition, whereby a specific diet and/or supplement is prescribed in conjunction with exercise training. Verifying adherence to prescribed interventions and estimation of dietary intake is paramount. Food diari...

  4. Climate awareness, anxiety, and actions among youth: a qualitative study in a middle-income country

    BRAZILIAN JOURNAL OF PSYCHIATRY, v.45, n.3, p.258-267, 2023
