Body-mass index and all-cause mortality: individual-participant-data meta-analysis of 239 prospective studies in four continents
Leisure time physical activity and mortality: a detailed pooled analysis of the dose-response relationship.
IMPORTANCE The 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommended a minimum of 75 vigorous-intensity or 150 moderate-intensity minutes per week (7.5 metabolic-equivalent hours per week) of…
Association of Leisure-Time Physical Activity With Risk of 26 Types of Cancer in 1.44 Million Adults.
Leisure-time physical activity was associated with lower risks of many cancer types, and most of these associations were evident regardless of body size or smoking history, supporting broad generalizability of findings.

Time spent in sedentary behaviors was positively associated with mortality, and participation in high levels of MVPA did not fully mitigate health risks associated with prolonged time watching television.
Leisure Time Physical Activity of Moderate to Vigorous Intensity and Mortality: A Large Pooled Cohort Analysis
Analyzing data from over 650,000 individuals, Dr. Steven Moore and colleagues report that greater amounts of leisure-time physical activity were associated with higher life expectancy across a wide…
Body-mass index and mortality among 1.46 million white adults.
In white adults, overweight and obesity (and possibly underweight) are associated with increased all-cause mortality and the hazard ratios for the men were similar.
Therapeutic Anticoagulation with Heparin in Noncritically Ill Patients with Covid-19
In noncritically ill patients with Covid-19, an initial strategy of therapeutic-dose anticoagulation with heparin increased the probability of survival to hospital discharge with reduced use of cardiovascular or respiratory organ support as compared with usual-care thromboprophylaxis.
Association between Class III Obesity (BMI of 40–59 kg/m2) and Mortality: A Pooled Analysis of 20 Prospective Studies
In a pooled analysis of 20 prospective studies, Cari Kitahara and colleagues find that class III obesity (BMI of 40–59) is associated with excess rates of total mortality, particularly due to heart…
A pooled analysis of waist circumference and mortality in 650,000 adults.
Adipokine genes and prostate cancer risk
Allelic variants in the LEP gene are related to prostate cancer risk, supporting a role for leptin in prostate carcinogenesis, andPolymorphisms in the IL6, LEPR, TNF and ADIPOQ genes were not associated with prostate cancer.
