This compilation opens with a discussion of tuberculosis, the leading cause of death from a single infectious agent. Widespread occurrence of drug-resistant tuberculosis and multidrug-resistant- tuberculosis poses a serious threat to global control efforts.

The authors review the importance of sleep for healthy functioning, the role sleep plays in eating patterns and diet, and how this may relate to weight gain and obesity.

Diabetic cardiomyopathy, one of the major complications of type 2 diabetes mellitus, is studied. This condition is characterized by structural and functional changes in the myocardium in absence of coronary artery disease, other cardiac pathologies or hypertension.
This compilation goes on to propose that body composition could serve as a pre-screening tool and a safe, injury-free indicator of changes in the physical fitness of police officers.

The closing study assesses whether economic damage from excessive restrictions due to COVID-19 might eventually result in more harm to public health than the virus itself.
