Association between dietary phytochemical index and risk of benign prostatic hyperplasia: a case-control study
CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates a protective association between DPI and BPH risk in the Middle-Eastern population. Encouraging higher intake of phytochemical-rich foods may help reduce the risk of BPH, highlighting the relevance of nutritional science in promoting prostate health.PMID:38429831 | PMC:PMC10905850 | DOI:10.1186/s41043-024-00531-5 (Source: Journal of Health, Population, and Nutrition)

What could be the reasons for not losing weight even after following a weight loss program?
CONCLUSION: This review identifies and clarifies the role of several factors that may hinder weight loss after the exploration of existing evidence. Judging the effectiveness of respective lifestyle interventions by simply observing the 'general behavior of the groups' is not always applicable in clinical practice. Each individual must be monitored and advised as per their requirements and challenges.PMID:38429842 | PMC:PMC10908186 | DOI:10.1186/s41043-024-00516-4 (Source: Journal of Health, Population, and Nutrition)

Association between obesity and new-onset heart failure among patients with hypertension in Thailand
CONCLUSION: An increased BMI had a higher risk for new-onset HF among Thai people with HTN. Obesity was independently associated with new-onset HF among people with HTN, regardless of uncontrolled HTN. Our findings highlight that weight reduction is crucial for mitigating the risk of HF development in HTN patients, regardless of their BP control status.PMID:38424593 | PMC:PMC10905941 | DOI:10.1186/s41043-024-00530-6 (Source: Journal of Health, Population, and Nutrition)

Understanding the relationship between stay-at-home measures and vaccine shortages: a conventional, heterogeneous, and fractional dynamic approach
This study aims to provide policymakers with crucial insights for making informed decisions regarding lockdown strategies, vaccine availability, and other control measures. The research adopts three types of models: deterministic, heterogeneous, and fractional-order dynamics, on both theoretical and numerical approaches. The heterogeneous network considers varying connectivity and interaction patterns among individuals, while the ABC fractional-order derivatives analyze the impact of integer-order control in different semi-groups. An extensive theoretical analysis is conducted to validate the proposed model. A comprehensiv...

Differences in physical and mental health symptoms among residents living near municipal solid waste sites: a cross sectional study in the Ashanti Region, Ghana
CONCLUSION: While emphasizing the importance of proper landfill design and management in Ghana, this study underscores the need for further longitudinal and clinical investigations.

Caregiver burden and health-related quality of life: A study of   informal caregivers of older adults in Ghana
CONCLUSION: Consistent with our hypothesis, this study reported a significant negative association between caregiver burden and HRQoL. Our findings partially support the conceptual model of HRQoL used in this study. We recommend that health and social policy measures to improve HRQoL among informal caregivers of older adults should consider caregiver burden as well as other significant socio-economic, cultural, demographic, and healthcare factors.PMID:38383532 | PMC:PMC10882722 | DOI:10.1186/s41043-024-00509-3 (Source: Journal of Health, Population, and Nutrition)
