Association Between #Automotive Assembly Plant Closures and #Opioid Overdose Mortality in the United States

..Automotive assembly plant closures are culturally significant events that substantially erode local economic opportunities. ..Automotive assembly plant closures were associated with statistically significant increases in opioid overdose mortality. Five years after a plant closure, mortality rates had increased by 8.6 opioid overdose deaths per 100 000 individuals (95% CI, 2.6-14.6; P = .006) in exposed counties compared with unexposed counties, an 85% increase relative to the mortality rate … Continue reading Association Between #Automotive Assembly Plant Closures and #Opioid Overdose Mortality in the United States

#Protein Intake Greater than the RDA Differentially Influences Whole-Body Lean #Mass Responses to Purposeful Catabolic and Anabolic Stressors: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

Under stressful conditions such as energy restriction (ER) and physical activity, the RDA for protein of 0.8 g · kg−1 · d−1 may no longer be an appropriate recommendation. Under catabolic or anabolic conditions, higher protein intakes are proposed to attenuate the loss or increase the gain of whole-body lean mass, respectively.. ..Among all comparisons, protein intakes greater than the RDA benefitted changes in lean … Continue reading #Protein Intake Greater than the RDA Differentially Influences Whole-Body Lean #Mass Responses to Purposeful Catabolic and Anabolic Stressors: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
