Exercise linked to improved mental health, but more may not always be better
A study of 1.2 million people in the USA has found that people who exercise report having 1.5 fewer days of poor mental health a month, compared to people who do not exercise. The study found that team sports, cycling, aerobics and going to the gym are associated with the biggest reductions, according to the largest observational study of its kind published in The Lancet Psychiatry journal.
PEPFAR Funding in Kenya Associated with Decreased Infant Mortality, Study Finds

Tuberculosis Transmission Between Residents and Migrants in Shanghai Revealed Through Genomic and Spatial Analysis
Tuberculosis, an infectious disease that is transmitted by coughing, is the leading cause of death attributable to a single pathogen. In China, which has the second highest number of tuberculosis cases in the world, massive rural-to-urban population shifts over the past 15 years have coincided with large increases of the disease in cities.
Collaborations Key to Successful and Expanding Career in the Science of Infertility, Child Health
