Children who recover from early stunting and children who are not stunted demonstrate similar levels of cognition.
TLDR
Policy makers and program planners should consider redoubling efforts to prevent stunting and promote catch-up growth over the first few years of life as a way of improving children's physical and intellectual development.
Impact of early and concurrent stunting on cognition.
TLDR
Cognitive skills of children entering school were associated with early stunting but the strongest association was found with concurrent stunting suggesting that interventions preventing linear growth faltering should not only focus on the under 2s but include children up to 5 years of age.
Association of 25-hydroxy-vitamin D levels with semen and hormonal parameters.
TLDR
Sperm concentration, sperm progressive motility, sperm morphology, and total progressively motile sperm count were lower in men with 25OHD when compared to men with '20 ng ml(-1)≤25OHD<50 ng ml (-1)'.

Mechanisms of action of intrauterine devices: update and estimation of postfertilization effects.
TLDR
Estimates indicate that, although prefertilization effects are more prominent for the copper IUD, both prefERTilization and postfertilized mechanisms of action contribute significantly to the effectiveness of all types of intrauterine devices.
