Two new articles published this week in PLoS Medicine:

A Mendelian randomization analysis conducted by Børge G. Nordestgaard and colleagues using data from observational studies supports a causal relationship between body mass index and risk for ischemic heart disease.

Seye Abimbola and colleagues describe and evaluate their program in Nigeria of recruiting midwives to rural areas to provide skilled attendance at birth, which is much poorer than in urban areas.
