Glenn Close, 'Hillbilly Elegy'
"Hi everybody. I'm peter travers. This is popcorn What's happening at the movies and my guest today. is glenn. close one of the best actors on this planet. You heard it from me and you heard from everybody else. That caesar in anything you people need to get now busy on netflix. And watch glenn. In hillbilly jay where her talent is shining on its highest being. So congratulations to you. God thank you peter. Thank you very much. And i'm looking at you and when i see you and you'll be billy algae i say who the hell is that. What about this transformation that you make to play this character. Well you know. It started. When i when i knew i was going to do memo is started with. I can't be distracted by my own face. I can't you know if i think the audience sees my face. I'll be very distracted by that though. I called matthew mongol reading. Oh genius makeup artist. Special effects makeup in mossy oak own views is done my wigs for practically my entire career and they had done also janet mcteer ni- and albert and matthew came up from texas where he's kind of semi retired when i still had a house out you know in westchester and we sat in my kitchen and he experimented with with shapes because it was really amazing. How just a very slight alteration of its shape of your nose for example can take your own face away so It was that and also mammal in life had big ears so he added you know size of my ears in my ear lobes. In the night. I curl my hair and made it all frizzy and ron came over because he just lives over the border in connecticut and he was kind of he was convinced because it i of course you know you worry about the time taken in the chair in the morning with any kind of percents but this was actually you know just slight difference of the nose and ears in it. I i was reading an hour every day But that was the beginning. And i we were given a portrait of mammoth fabulous portrait for slightly looking up with the big glasses and her hair and that was kind of what we went on. And then eventually saw videos from the family of her inaction laughing surrounded by kids pulling a wagon and then i the thing that was most valuable for me was to have one on one with bev with lindsay with a cousin with jd. And just saying okay. How did she sit. What did she wear. How did she hold her cigarette What was her voice like what. What was your energy like when she came into a room. What was her house like. So just very specific things not to pretend i was her but to somehow find the essence of this woman. Who is just. I mean loved feared feared and loved. When you get a property like this. I mean let's start by that. How did it come to you. He'll billy allergy. Who showed it to you. I said well. To tell you the truth. I read the book you know. Not long after came out because i wanted to educate myself kennedy. Was it her. She made the wonderful wonderful documentary about the hill. People that i remember vividly. But that was more like the shacks in the moonshine. And that's kind of the cliche and cliches are uninteresting. And i think cliche can lead to people being stigmatized and i think this group of people have been stigmatized. And then i heard that ron was had gotten the rights was developing the script and i wrote him a note and i said when you're thinking of memo please think of me thinking never in a million years would you. Because it's not like casting that you would necessarily leaked to. But then he got exciting for. You is the best thing about exciting new territory. And that's the essence of what we do right. I mean we were. We explore the human condition. And you don't want to go over territories spiritual emotional psychological that you've done before and so this was a great great journey for me to to learn about mammo to meet her family. I really believe i. It's just a fact that all great drama is based in family and you tell a very specific story about family and it has repercussions for everyone matter who they are and and that to me is the value of making it authentic and honest because then people can say they they almost subliminally will link it to their own lives. I heard that you met her son. Oh yes yes. He came settled. So what did he say when he's looking at you playing her and in a way reproducing this woman who's gone now he couldn't believe it. I mean the thing when the family and they came later when we were like a bunch of them came on on the day that i shooting the scene with little jd when he's I've told that he has to give his p to his mother and they came onset set. We're we're on a location. And some of them started crying. They somehow whatever we found was the mammal that they remembered and her son came came in another scene and he had to leave because he got so emotional. So that was really gratifying. I think we wanted to do justice. And we wanted to in way carry on the legacy of mammal. I women all over the world who are mammals you know. Always a yankee game sat next to a grandmother and grandfather. Taking care of their ten year old grandson. And i think he'd oh my god no retirement for them. I said their daughter was unable to take care of them so they were raising their grandson and it happens a lot in this country that know. We see every time we turn around to do that. And i say from the specific comes the universal to do that. But i think it's going to have an effect watching this movie now because all of us many of us even if we're lucky enough to live in some kind of bubble where we have. Some family members with us isn't going to be a thanksgiving where we can all get together in large kind of group. it's just impossible with this pandemic. How are you living with. Pandemic there in montana. We'll see interesting. Because i've not achieved as much creatively as i wanted. I wanted to really really right. Haven't and i'm not sure why not be. I think it's brought a kind of sometimes. I feel like. I'm spinning my tires. You know in in the mud and not getting a traction. And but i make sure my sink is clean all the time. My kitchen isn't border. You know i make i will. Do i think that every day going. After the i kind of the little things to keep my life in order that have been important but he things are building. I think i would like to think that a great great era of creativity for for all of us who are in the are artists will come out of this. Whether is you know something's just stating whether you're aware of it or not. But it's there it's going to happen

Having Having said said that that we we have have to to be be careful careful now now because because they're they're almost almost certainly certainly is is going going to be to be an an uptick uptick because because of of what what has has happened happened with with the travel. the travel. We We understand. understand. The importance The importance of of family family is getting is getting together together and and it's it's just just something something that that we we have have to to deal deal with with that that we we likely likely will will have have an an increase increase in in cases cases as as we we get get into into the the colder colder weeks. weeks. Of the Of the winter. winter. And And as as we we approach approach the Christmas the Christmas season, season, please please don't don't forget forget the the standard standard public public health health measures measures that that we we talk talk about about The reason The reason I I say say that that a a moth moth and and and and almost almost plead plead with with people people is is that that we we do do know know That it That it does does work. work. Countries Countries that that have have mitigated mitigated have have turned turned around around the surge. the surge. States States that that have have mitigated mitigated have have had had a a turnaround turnaround of the of the inflection inflection of of the the curb. curb. So So it it does does work. work. And And as as we've we've just just heard, heard, help help is is on on the the way way Vaccines Vaccines a a really really right right on on the the horizon. horizon. Will Will be be having having vaccines vaccines available available for for the the higher higher priority priority people people towards towards the the middle middle and and end end of of December December and and as as we we get get into into January January and and February, February, so so everyone everyone is is totally totally empathetic. empathetic. About About the the fatigue fatigue that that everyone everyone is is feeling. feeling. But But if we if we can can hang hang in in there, there, hang hang in in there there a a bit bit longer longer and and do do the fundamental the fundamental things things wearing wearing of of mask mask uniformly uniformly avoiding avoiding crowds crowds and and congregate congregate settings, settings, keeping keeping physical physical distance distance washing washing your your hands. hands. They They seem seem simple simple in in the the enormity enormity of of the problem. the problem. That we're That we're facing, facing, But But they they do do make make a a difference. difference. Dr. Dr. Fauci Fauci pleaded pleaded before before the the beginning. beginning. Yeah, Yeah, Doc Doc Doctor Doctor Fauci. Fauci. You You have have said said that that again again and and again again and and again. again. We We saw saw all all those those people people traveling. traveling. So So you you know know what's what's coming. coming. And And with with Christmas Christmas just just around around the corner, the corner, do do you you think think will will be be under under the the same same restrictions restrictions that that you you recommended? recommended? On Thanksgiving On Thanksgiving going going into into Christmas. Christmas. You You know, know, Martha, Martha, I I can't can't see see how how we're we're not not gonna gonna have have the the same same thing thing because because when when you you have have the the kind kind of inflection of inflection that that we we have, have, it it doesn't doesn't all of all of a sudden a sudden turn turn around around like like that. that. So So clearly, clearly, in in the the next next few few weeks, weeks, we're we're gonna gonna have have the the same same sort sort of thing. of thing. And And perhaps perhaps even even two two or or three three weeks weeks down down the the line, line, Martha, Martha, we we may may see see a a surge surge upon upon a a surge. surge. You You know, we know, we don't don't want want to frighten to frighten people. people. But But that's that's just just the the reality. reality. We We said said that that these these things things would would happen. happen. As we As we got got into into the the cold cold weather, weather, and and as as we we began began traveling, traveling, and and they've they've happened, happened, it's it's gonna gonna happen happen again. again. So So I I cannot cannot see see all all of of a a sudden sudden a a relax relax ation ation of of the kinds the kinds of of recommendations recommendations or or restrictions restrictions because because we're we're getting getting into into colder colder weather weather and and enough enough in in even even larger larger holiday holiday season season as as people people travel travel to to come come back back and and forth. forth. For Christmas, For Christmas, so so I I don't don't see see a a relax relax ation ation of of the kind the kind of of recommendations recommendations and and restrictions restrictions that that we've we've made. made. And And Dr Dr Factually. Factually. The Supreme The Supreme Court Court on on Wednesday Wednesday struck struck down down New New York's York's Covad Covad restrictions restrictions on on religious religious gatherings gatherings in in the state. the state. How How concerned concerned are you are you about about legal legal challenges challenges to to pandemic pandemic restrictions restrictions going going forward? forward? Well, Well, I I mean, mean, they they happened, happened, Martha. Martha. There's There's nothing nothing I I could could do about do about it. it. I I just just keep keep saying saying that that when when people people ask ask me me for for Opinions Opinions of of specific specific things things rather rather than than make make a a comment comment on on a a specific specific things. things. I I could could just just say say it it doesn't doesn't matter matter who who you you are are where where you you are, are, when when you have you have congregate congregate settings, settings, particularly particularly indoors. indoors. When When people people are not are not wearing wearing masks, masks, that that is is a a considerable considerable risk risk for for acquisition acquisition and and spread spread of of infection, infection, no no matter matter what what the circumstances the circumstances that that is is a a risk. risk. And And you you said said there there should should be more be more regular regular testing testing available available for for asymptomatic asymptomatic people. people. How How soon soon do do you think you think before before Americans Americans could could have have inexpensive inexpensive home home tests? tests? And And why why haven't haven't they they so so far? far? Well, Well, I I hope hope it's it's sooner sooner rather rather than than later, later, Martha. Martha. I mean I mean they they obviously obviously we've we've done done better better in in testing testing than than we we did did early early on on in the in beginning. the beginning. But you're But you're talking talking about about different different kinds kinds and and different different motivations motivations and and different different objectives objectives of of testing. testing. If If you're you're trying trying to find to find out out if if a a person person is is infected infected either either for for contact contact tracing tracing or or what what have have you you then then you you want want a a highly highly sensitive sensitive test test that that might might take take a a day day or or two two to to get get a a result result back. back. When When you're you're trying trying to find to find out out what what the the extent extent of of the community the community spread spread is is that that is is driven driven very very clearly, clearly, at at least least in in part part by by asymptomatic asymptomatic spread, spread, so so we we need need to to know know the extent the extent of of the the asymptomatic. asymptomatic. The only The only way way you you know know that that is is what what you you just just asked asked for. for. And I And I would would like like to to have have seen seen it it already. already. And And I hope I hope that that we we get get it soon. it soon. Rapid, Rapid, sensitive, sensitive, specific specific home home testing testing even even one one that that you you might might not not even even need need a a prescription prescription for for so so that that people people can can have have within within their their own own power power to to know know whether whether or or not not it it is is in in his his highly highly sensitive sensitive is is the the other, other, but but it it is is very very helpful, helpful, particularly particularly if if you you do do it it over over and and over over again. again. I hope I hope we we get get that that soon. soon. And And Dr Dr Fauci Fauci in New in York New York City City Public Public school school shut shut down down again again earlier earlier this this month. month. I I know know your your default default position position is is that that you'd you'd like like to to see see the the skull skull schools schools open. open. But But how how do do you you make make that that happen? happen? And And how how would would you you advise advise the the incoming incoming Biden Biden administration administration on on getting getting a a sort sort of unified of unified response? response? Well, Well, you you know, know, Martha, Martha, that's that's a a good good question. question. We get We get asked asked that all that all the the time. time. You You know, we know, we say say it it not not being being facetiously facetiously as as a a sound sound bite bite or anything, or anything, but but you you know, know, Closed Closed the boss the boss and and keep keep the the school's school's open open is is what what we really we really say. say. Obviously, Obviously, you you don't don't have have one one size size fits fits all. all. But But as as I I said said in in the past, the past, and and as as you you accurately accurately quoted quoted me me The default The default position position should should be be to to try try his his best best this this possible possible within within reason reason to keep to keep the the Children Children in school in school to to get get them them back back to school. to school. The The best best way way to to ensure ensure the the safety safety of of the Children the Children in school in school is is to to get get the community the community level level of of spread spread low. low. So So if if you you mitigate mitigate the things the things that that you you know, know, are are causing causing spread spread In a In a very, very, very very profound profound way way in in a a robust robust way. way. If If you you bring bring that that down, down, you you will will then then indirectly indirectly and and ultimately ultimately protect protect the Children the Children in the in school the school because because the the community community level level is is determined determined how how things things go go across across the the board. board. So my So my feeling feeling would would be the be the same same thing. thing. If If you you look look at at the the data, data, the spread the spread among among Children Children and and from from Children Children is is not not really really very very big big at at all, all, not not like like one one would would have have suspected. suspected. So So let's let's try try to to get get the the kids kids back. back. But But let's let's try try to to mitigate mitigate the the things things that that maintain maintain and and and and just just push push the the kind kind of community of community spread spread that that we're we're trying trying to avoid. to avoid. And And those those other other things things that that you you know know well, well, the the bars bars the the restaurants restaurants where where you have you have capacity capacity seating seating indoors indoors without without masks. masks. Those Those of of the things the things that that drive drive the the community community spread, spread, not not the the schools schools and and and and Dr Dr fracture. fracture. You You talked talked about about the the vaccine vaccine and and the availability the availability of of the the vaccine. vaccine. The government The government Can't Can't force force everyone everyone to take to take the vaccine. the vaccine. So So what what about about schools? schools? Companies? Companies? Employers? Employers? Can Can they they mandate mandate of vaccine of vaccine like like in in other other vaccines? vaccines? You You know know any any individual individual group group command command eight eight vaccines vaccines in in certain certain ways, ways, Martha, Martha, It's It's not. not. I I believe believe going going to come to come centrally. centrally. I I don't don't want want to get to get ahead ahead of of the game the game there, there, but but I I doubt doubt that. that. That would That would happen. happen. For For example, example, right right now, now, myself. myself. I I mean, mean, I'm I'm at at the the NIH NIH Clinical Clinical Center. Center. I'm I'm a a physician. physician. I I see see patients. patients. I I have have to to get get the the influenza influenza vaccine vaccine or or I'm I'm not not gonna gonna be able be able to see to see patients, patients, so so individual individual units units be be they they hospitals hospitals or or other other organizations. organizations. Can't Can't do do that. that. It's It's within within their their right right to to say. say. If If you you want want to work to work with with us, us, you're you're gonna gonna have have to to get get a vaccine. a vaccine. But But that's that's not not going going to be, to be, I I believe, believe, essentially essentially mandated mandated process process and and Dr Dr Factory. Factory. There There are are concerns concerns about about the the anti anti vaccination vaccination movement movement and and infectious infectious to to see see disease disease specialists specialists in Boston, in Boston, telling telling the Boston the Boston Globe Globe the same the same energy energy that that was was placed placed into into development development and and distribution distribution of a of a Corona Corona virus. virus. Vaccine Vaccine should should have have been been placed placed in in messaging messaging and and community community engagement. engagement. Do you Do you agree agree with with that? that? Oh, Oh, absolutely. absolutely. We We have have to to engage engage the the community. community. Martha Martha B. B. Because Because we we do do have have a a degree degree of of anti anti vax vax to to begin begin with. with. But But then then there's there's skepticism skepticism about about this this vaccine. vaccine. So So we've we've got got to be to be able able to to get get out out there there get get community community people people who who the the community community trust trust to show to show two two things. things. The process The process of of the the development development of of this this vaccine vaccine has has been been one one that that has has been been scientifically scientifically sound sound safety safety has has not not been been compromised. compromised. Scientific Scientific integrity integrity has has not not been been compromised compromised and and the process the process Of determining Of determining whether whether it it works. works. Whether Whether it's it's safe safe and and effective, effective, has has been been independent independent by by independent independent bodies bodies and and transparent. transparent. We've We've got got to get to get the the community community the broad the broad community community of of the United the United States States to to see see that that and and appreciate appreciate that. that. And And how how could could be be we'd we'd be sure be sure there there won't won't be prolonged be prolonged side side effects effects from from this this vaccine. vaccine. Well, Well, you you know, know, Martin, Martin, the one the one thing thing you've you've got got to admit to admit that that in in any any intervention, intervention, there there might might be be a side a side effect. effect. The The history history of of vaccine vaccine ology ology that that we we know know for for decades decades and and decades. decades. Is that Is that when when you you talk talk about about prolonged prolonged side side effects effects that's that's very very rare rare and and the side the side effects effects that that occurred occurred that that are beyond are beyond the immediate the immediate pain pain in in the the arm arm and and the fever the fever and and things things like like that. that. Generally Generally occur occur when when you look you look at at like like 95% 95% of the of time the time between between maybe maybe 30 30 and and 45 45 days, days, which which is is the the exact exact reason reason why why the the FDA FDA said said that that they they would would not not want want Tonto Tonto issue issue and and you you a a or or approve approve anyway anyway and and emergency emergency use use organization organization until until 60 60 days days after after half half of of the the people people in in a a trial trial Have Have gone gone from from their their last last dose. dose. So So already, already, the the FDA FDA has has baked baked into into the the process, process, a a safety safety mechanism mechanism to to make make sure sure that that you you have have historically historically overwhelming overwhelming chance chance that that you're you're not not gonna gonna have have a a very very late late effect. effect. Having Having said said that that also, also, you you don't don't just just forget forget about about it. Once it. Once the the trial trial is is over, over, you you have have one one or or two two years years of of the the trial trial follow follow up. up. In In addition addition to to post post trial trial follow follow up up So that's So that's something something that that is is very, very, very very high high priority priority is is the the immediate immediate intermediate intermediate and and long long term term safety safety of of these these vaccines. vaccines. It's It's not not something something that's that's being being disregarded. disregarded.
Christmas and New Year’s restrictions will be necessary due to holiday coronavirus wave, says Dr. Fauci
"Now Live is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr Anthony Fauci. Dr Fauci. Welcome back to this week. Today could be the busiest travel day in the country since the start of the pandemic, even though you and other public health leaders have made appeal after appeal for people to stay put. And distance as much as possible. When you watch these scenes, what do you think? And what else can you possibly say to them? Well, I mean, the travel that has been done has been done right now is people go back? We want to urge them. If they've been in situations outside of the family setting in which they really don't know the level of exposure to be really careful when you either return from the place that you went. Other people come back into your house. That you've really got to understand the importance of trying to prevent further spread and further surge that maybe when you go back to where you came from, if it's possible to quarantine yourself for a period of time, or even get tested to make sure That you're not bringing infection back to another place being another home or another family. Having said that we have to be careful now because they're almost certainly is going to be an uptick because of what has happened with the travel. We understand. The importance of family is getting together and it's just something that we have to deal with that we likely will have an increase in cases as we get into the colder weeks. Of the winter. And as we approach the Christmas season, please don't forget the standard public health measures that we talk about The reason I say that a moth and and almost plead with people is that we do know That it does work. Countries that have mitigated have turned around the surge. States that have mitigated have had a turnaround of the inflection of the curb. So it does work. And as we've just heard, help is on the way Vaccines a really right on the horizon. Will be having vaccines available for the higher priority people towards the middle and end of December and as we get into January and February, so everyone is totally empathetic. About the fatigue that everyone is feeling. But if we can hang in there, hang in there a bit longer and do the fundamental things wearing of mask uniformly avoiding crowds and congregate settings, keeping physical distance washing your hands. They seem simple in the enormity of the problem. That we're facing, But they do make a difference. Dr. Fauci pleaded before the beginning. Yeah, Doc Doctor Fauci. You have said that again and again and again. We saw all those people traveling. So you know what's coming. And with Christmas just around the corner, do you think will be under the same restrictions that you recommended? On Thanksgiving going into Christmas. You know, Martha, I can't see how we're not gonna have the same thing because when you have the kind of inflection that we have, it doesn't all of a sudden turn around like that. So clearly, in the next few weeks, we're gonna have the same sort of thing. And perhaps even two or three weeks down the line, Martha, we may see a surge upon a surge. You know, we don't want to frighten people. But that's just the reality. We said that these things would happen. As we got into the cold weather, and as we began traveling, and they've happened, it's gonna happen again. So I cannot see all of a sudden a relax ation of the kinds of recommendations or restrictions because we're getting into colder weather and enough in even larger holiday season as people travel to come back and forth. For Christmas, so I don't see a relax ation of the kind of recommendations and restrictions that we've made. And Dr Factually. The Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down New York's Covad restrictions on religious gatherings in the state. How concerned are you about legal challenges to pandemic restrictions going forward? Well, I mean, they happened, Martha. There's nothing I could do about it. I just keep saying that when people ask me for Opinions of specific things rather than make a comment on a specific things. I could just say it doesn't matter who you are where you are, when you have congregate settings, particularly indoors. When people are not wearing masks, that is a considerable risk for acquisition and spread of infection, no matter what the circumstances that is a risk. And you said there should be more regular testing available for asymptomatic people. How soon do you think before Americans could have inexpensive home tests? And why haven't they so far? Well, I hope it's sooner rather than later, Martha. I mean they obviously we've done better in testing than we did early on in the beginning. But you're talking about different kinds and different motivations and different objectives of testing. If you're trying to find out if a person is infected either for contact tracing or what have you then you want a highly sensitive test that might take a day or two to get a result back. When you're trying to find out what the extent of the community spread is that is driven very clearly, at least in part by asymptomatic spread, so we need to know the extent of the asymptomatic. The only way you know that is what you just asked for. And I would like to have seen it already. And I hope that we get it soon. Rapid, sensitive, specific home testing even one that you might not even need a prescription for so that people can have within their own power to know whether or not it is in his highly sensitive is the other, but it is very helpful, particularly if you do it over and over again. I hope we get that soon. And Dr Fauci in New York City Public school shut down again earlier this month. I know your default position is that you'd like to see the skull schools open. But how do you make that happen? And how would you advise the incoming Biden administration on getting a sort of unified response? Well, you know, Martha, that's a good question. We get asked that all the time. You know, we say it not being facetiously as a sound bite or anything, but you know, Closed the boss and keep the school's open is what we really say. Obviously, you don't have one size fits all. But as I said in the past, and as you accurately quoted me The default position should be to try his best this possible within reason to keep the Children in school to get them back to school. The best way to ensure the safety of the Children in school is to get the community level of spread low. So if you mitigate the things that you know, are causing spread In a very, very profound way in a robust way. If you bring that down, you will then indirectly and ultimately protect the Children in the school because the community level is determined how things go across the board. So my feeling would be the same thing. If you look at the data, the spread among Children and from Children is not really very big at all, not like one would have suspected. So let's try to get the kids back. But let's try to mitigate the things that maintain and and just push the kind of community spread that we're trying to avoid. And those other things that you know well, the bars the restaurants where you have capacity seating indoors without masks. Those of the things that drive the community spread, not the schools and and Dr fracture. You talked about the vaccine and the availability of the vaccine. The government Can't force everyone to take the vaccine. So what about schools? Companies? Employers? Can they mandate of vaccine like in other vaccines? You know any individual group command eight vaccines in certain ways, Martha, It's not. I believe going to come centrally. I don't want to get ahead of the game there, but I doubt that. That would happen. For example, right now, myself. I mean, I'm at the NIH Clinical Center. I'm a physician. I see patients. I have to get the influenza vaccine or I'm not gonna be able to see patients, so individual units be they hospitals or other organizations. Can't do that. It's within their right to say. If you want to work with us, you're gonna have to get a vaccine. But that's not going to be, I believe, essentially mandated process and Dr Factory. There are concerns about the anti vaccination movement and infectious to see disease specialists in Boston, telling the Boston Globe the same energy that was placed into development and distribution of a Corona virus. Vaccine should have been placed in messaging and community engagement. Do you agree with that? Oh, absolutely. We have to engage the community. Martha B. Because we do have a degree of anti vax to begin with. But then there's skepticism about this vaccine. So we've got to be able to get out there get community people who the community trust to show two things. The process of the development of this vaccine has been one that has been scientifically sound safety has not been compromised. Scientific integrity has not been compromised and the process Of determining whether it works. Whether it's safe and effective, has been independent by independent bodies and transparent. We've got to get the community the broad community of the United States to see that and appreciate that. And how could be we'd be sure there won't be prolonged side effects from this vaccine. Well, you know, Martin, the one thing you've got to admit that in any intervention, there might be a side effect. The history of vaccine ology that we know for decades and decades. Is that when you talk about prolonged side effects that's very rare and the side effects that occurred that are beyond the immediate pain in the arm and the fever and things like that. Generally occur when you look at like 95% of the time between maybe 30 and 45 days, which is the exact reason why the FDA said that they would not want Tonto issue and you a or approve anyway and emergency use organization until 60 days after half of the people in a trial Have gone from their last dose. So already, the FDA has baked into the process, a safety mechanism to make sure that you have historically overwhelming chance that you're not gonna have a very late effect. Having said that also, you don't just forget about it. Once the trial is over, you have one or two years of the trial follow up. In addition to post trial follow up So that's something that is very, very high priority is the immediate intermediate and long term safety of these vaccines. It's not something that's being disregarded. Okay. Thanks so much for joining us this morning, Dr Fauci. It's always great to see you. We'll be right
“Hillbilly Elegy” Reviewed
"Amanda wonderful to see you on this thanksgiving week. How are you doing. I'm so glad to see to sean. Have you thanksgiving or early. Thanksgiving such as it is this year and the year. Lord twenty twenty. So we're gonna talk a little bit about hillbilly this episode because it's certainly inspired a realization. That are in oscar bait time and we're gonna start doing a few more oscar show episodes of this show because the oscars are close fish there five plus months away. They're not ordinary all that close. Nevertheless hillbilly allergy is a movie that has been tabbed on the oscar predictors sheets for a long time and this is an adaptation of jd. Vance's twenty sixteen memoir a sort of a reflection of his time growing up in in ohio and reflection on his family from kentucky and how they raised him and what has happened to america over the last fifty or so years. And you know. It's a certainly complicated book and a controversial book. You know. I had not read the book or even looked at it until i saw this movie but to prepare for this episode. I dug into the book a little bit. And it's an interesting tax. I would say it is not a book for me personally. Not a book that. I responded to But the book and the film have a pretty significant difference and that is that the book is a deeply political text and it is sort philosophical texts. in a way it's a. It's an ethical in reflective text. About what can happen to people in america and why america is the way it is right now. The movie is a melodrama about a family. And that's more or less it so tell me you know you're from the american south. I'm just. I'm just a snotty easterner. Quite from kentucky. But what do you make of the hillbilly elegy phenomenon. Before getting into the movie i Yes i am trying to be respectful here. So i wanted to read the full title of hillbilly allergy. The book which is hillbilly a memoir of family and a culture in crisis. My family is from a different culture than this particular family and jade is writing about his particular experiences and there is It it a difficult childhood in a lot of ways. This is a story that touches on addiction and abuse and poverty and it is also about family and his personal experiences and so to that extent. Jade events has the story of his own life. There is also the sociological aspects. I did read parts of needless to say. I didn't particularly agree with the sociological conclusions. But that is life in america. I think what's interesting about. This book is the popularity it had it was a big deal and it was on bestseller lists in two thousand sixteen when it was released in early. Two thousand seventeen and it did become kind of one of the key tax in this movement of an music so many air quotes here liberals trying to understand the trump voter and whether that pursuit is useful or whether this was the book to guide that pursuit we can really put it aside but again it was in a political context even for people who possibly didn't share the conclusions of this book and this movie does not want anything to do with any of that and i think there are a few reasons why we can talk about but it is. It's pretty fascinating because it was such a high profile book and such a controversial book. I think that the adaptation adaptation just totally stripped that away is noticeable and it also leaves the adaptation itself in search of a purpose. And that was my other. Take away from this movie. Well i have several but one of them is that. I don't really think that this movie knows what it's doing. Besides as you mentioned in the joe possibly trying to win some awards
Republicans denounce Trump's attempts to pressure Michigan officials
"Look. Your state is in the middle of this election controversy and as we speak the president has invited to of your republican leaders in the michigan legislature to the white house. He apparently the president does not want to accept the results of the election in michigan and appears to want the legislature to step in and award the electors to donald trump. Your reaction to that. Yeah well the the concept of the president asking someone to that is extremely troubling. I mean that's offering what the the democracy in my view and that's a terrible thing With respect to asking the legislative leaders to come meet with him at this point i wouldn't be critical of the legislative leaders. I mean step back and look at it and many people have strong feelings when they first hear this. But if the president of the united states calls you up and says he wants to meet with you. It's pretty hard to say you're not gonna go meet with him. It's really their actions. Coming out of a mess. How should be defined again. They both gone on the record to say that they didn't see any reason. There would be any change from the normal process. Taking place in michigan. They're both on the record for that. I would hope they would reiterate that to the president to say you know. That's the way it works in michigan and there's nothing to talk about if he asks for something inappropriate. Do you see any chance of fraud or improper handling of the ballots. That would in any way a raise questions about the results of the election in michigan. Now i have now. And i don't know anyone who has if you look at it all Eighty-three counties in michigan. Now certified by one by a fairly large margin actually. Republicans did well in michigan other than the presidential race. So if you look at it there's no indications in fact i believe some of the results even in wayne county or the detroit area which is the area that many people are talking about. Actually they have better results in terms of having their precincts match up on their numbers than they had four years ago. So if anything. i think. This is a good solid election. Taking place in michigan and i would expect the board of canvassers on monday to vote to certify the results. That's what they should do. So that's the state board of canvassers. And i wanna get to that in a second but we did have this episode this week. Where the two republican members of the canvassing board for wayne county which includes detroit. I said they would not vote to certify the election. Then they did then. They said they came under pressure and tried to recant it. Then there's also the suggestion that donald trump may have talked to at least one of them and possibly put pressure on them to say that they would not vote to certify. What do you make of all of that. The got certified. I think that's the important illegal point. What's trolling through. All this is the president's behavior and the people on his legal team in history. I mean there are actually undermining democracy with their actions again. If you have a ballot issue you should go to court. You prevent san evidence and you'll out of court decide all this other stuff is very damaging today actually. I'm concerned about the damage. That's going to go on for the next several years in terms of misinformation you know creating doubts in the minds of his supporters. Things like that. That's what's really troubling about. This is. I expect the process to work. I expect president-elect biden to become the next president through a legal process that were today If you look at it there hadn't been according the country to my knowledge that has found any merit any of the claims made. Let's get this thing over with but there's a lot of damage. President trump has done terrible things. I mean this man has the divider in chief in our nation and it's an awful outcome in terms of his behavior. We should point out that even though you're a two term republican governor of your state you actually endorse joe biden in this election. Why did you do that well as easy. I'm an american. I and it's in the best interest of america to have someone who's going to try to heal our country. Donald trump has been the divider and chief. The incivility in our country has reached a record level. I didn't think it could get worse. Actually post-election is showing can go even lower with this current behavior. This is awful and we need somebody to bring us back together. And joe biden. I believe can do that for the people that said they voted for trump even on a policy basis. I'm a nerd. I'm proud nerds dime into policy. Might make allergies. Were particularly that good. He had a few reasonable things that he did that. Were good but beyond that. Many of us steps really weren't that thoughtful nor good And so i think it's time for new leadership in our country. So not only did. I not want to vote for trump by found good reasons to vote for biden up and i'm glad to see that he won michigan. So you've targeted all of your criticism in this interview at donald trump. But what about the rest of your party. I assume you're you're still a republican. I'm still republican. Although a lot of republicans like the have other commentary on me. Yeah yeah let me give you an example. We have a reporter. Who works for us at yahoo news jon ward over the last week i think four times. He has emailed the comms. Directors of every republican senator. That's fifty three senators and only two of them got back and said yes and acknowledged that there was not significant fraud in this election. And we're willing to criticize a donald trump for how he handled this transition and his efforts to subvert the apparently subvert the election just two out of fifty three. What do you make of that. What do you make of of people in your party. Who have not been willing to do. What you're doing on this podcast right now and i wish there were more i really do and i would have expected more but as a practice marijuana also be conscious because these are good people. These many of these people have been public servants for years and to be blonde. Donald trump is a bully. I mean i've been on the record for that. I was as i'm a nerd. That was bullied a kid. So i understand bullying and if you're in a position like they are in many cases you have an issue with a bully out there and you're going to be pretty cautious about what you say because you don't want to be the next person that's a target of a bully. S my point. That's why i was happy to part president-elect biden was get this guy out of office and yeah backward. people actually respect one another and treat people with civility. Tell us about your own relationship with trump. because he's he's gone after you clearly and but you overlap with them while you were governor right so you must imagine. You guys must've talked. Was it like yeah. We never have had what i would describe as a real positive relationship because again if you look at that context i believe in being a positive person so even these comments are hard for me to get because i don't like being negative on anyone. I like to spend my time looking for the good in people but in his case he i would make an exception the way i viewed at many cases is he didn't understand a lot of the issues. That were going on in michigan. So i just sort of did my own thing and i didn't worry about if he was taking credit for it for example he to talk about michigan's great comeback. All that's fine. We did make michigan comeback in. We had it going. The comeback well underway before he ever became president. And if you wanna to take credit that's fine. I try to work with them. Because we're fellow public servants. He was at the federal level as at the state level. So i didn't go out of my way to generate conflict. Because if i could help michigan by getting them on board to do something for michigan that would be good
Derm-Approved Ways to Treat Dark Circles, Undereye Bags & More with #TikTokDoc Dr. Mamina Turegano
"We really want to start with some of the basics and one of the questions we had was. Can you explain what is different between the skin around. Her is verse. Says the rest of our face if anything because i think that could get a bit confusing for people so the skin around the eyes is definitely thinner and hence more delicate and so we because it's thinner we can see signs of aging faster on the skin around the eyes and also because it's thinner we can see vascular were easily so if the solar worn gorged or if you're swollen that's just very much more pronounced through the i. The eyelid skin and eyelids. There's upper eyelids. And there's lower eyelids to so any kind of small. Insult to the body can manifest more readily around the eyes. And so would you say because this is a bit of a hot debate i feel. Do you really need eye creams or misuse moisturizer. All the way up. Because i've definitely talked some germs who've said no i'm curious your take yes i can definitely see both sides of it. I think that not everyone needs an eye cream if you do not suffer from dark circles if you're just looking just to use a cream for anti aging purposes and just keeping overall skin health intact you don't have to use an ice cream. The only issue is that because the skin is more delicate i. I don't think that you should just use the same exact thing that you use on your face around your eyes. If you're gonna use any kind of actives whether it's an antioxidant or i do recommend diluting it with a moisturizer or disappointed rising serum so that the irritation risk less for sure. I definitely see more. I see more issues with irritation around the is honestly. I think the majority of our questions was about dark circle. So maybe you could tell us you know. Is it really about not getting enough sleep or is that just an urban myth like what are the main causal factors whether genetics or ethnicity. Or what the yes. There's a lot of factors that are at play when it comes to dark circles and dark circles. Are there for a couple of reasons one. There could literally just being darkening the actual skin which can be due to multiple things. It could be due to having allergies and irradiation around in rubbing your i. It could be due to having skin issues like eggs. Emma and then that could lead to post inflammatory hyper pigmentation you get darkening from any inflammation. That was there of course. Lack of sleep like asleep affects the circulation around the eyes and the circulation the vascular becomes more pronounced. And that's where you get the dark circles and also if you're if you're not sleeping while isn't adequate as well incorporated into the skin and so you could see more of a hollowing around the eyes and that shadow effect can also be too dark circles. I think that certain food sensitivities. That's a little bit harder to tease out. Because everyone reacts differently the different foods but food sensitivities can lead to lead to inflammation which can lead to kind of it can affect the blood flow around the eyes and that can lead to dark circles and then of course as genetic predisposition darker skin tone. You're just more likely to get hyper pigmentation. And then and then genetically to some people just have less volume around. There is some people will just get more of a hollow around there is and then get at were essentially to shadow effect. Now just tell you that as you're telling us like giving us this concrete information your expertise which i love hearing about. I'm like picturing you doing the running man right now from your tiktok video. Yeah i ran l. At gosh i love it. It does that mean like. Can you give us before we get into ice creams and stuff like that. Like what would be some lifestyle tips that you can do without spending a dime sleeping easier said than done but getting adequate amount of sleep and i think that's different for different people. I mean people say eight hours. I do with six hours but anyways everyone's different so so doing that. And then if you have allergies. I mean just taking. It means daily. You know over the counter over the counter antihistamines. The non-drowsy kind. And then you don't have to change up your skin care routine if you're if you're using a moisturizer in sunscreen make sure that you're using it around your eyes to getting back to life style. Hydration super important water and interestingly things like our vices alcohol caffeine. Those things can be very dehydrating so being mindful of those to pay. So we're going to talk about ice cream that can help with dark circles so often hear about vitamin c. You hear about caffeine. But i really wanna know what are the cold hard facts when it comes to those ingredients that are proven around the eye area. Because it's like you just. There's there's so many choices out there and so we just wanna give me some tools to help them shop like when they are spending and investing in these types of products. What really works around those round. The i for dark circles treating pigmentation. It's the same thing that applies to the rest of the skin. So of course oxidants whether it's vitamin c can certainly be helpful. And then you know if if you're dealing with more severe hyper pigmentation. There's lot of like anti hyper pigmentation ingredients. So i mean milder ones are like nice cinnamon which is also an antioxidant but there are things like kojic acid hydra known these things. Lighten the skin and we know that it works also a retinoid. A retinoid is helpful because well first of all it increase skill turnovers. So you're getting rid of any old skin that could be hyper pigmented. But retinoids also causes skin allow the skin to become thicker and with thicker skin. There is less visibility like there's less translucent plays a huge part in like seeing the dark circles around the eyes and then the other ingredient that can help just kind of help with skin are peptides
Volunteers still needed to test variety of COVID-19 vaccines
"While coronavirus cases are skyrocketing and communities are imposing new restrictions the nation's top infectious disease expert has his eyes on new vaccines that will likely be distributed next year Dr Anthony Fauci the head of the government's National Institute of allergy and infectious diseases says vaccines will be the way for life to get back to normal but he understands why people are nervous about being inoculated with drugs that were rushed to approval but the speed is a reflection of the extraordinary advances in scientific technology he says independent experts are reviewing vaccine data people with no skin in the game financially or otherwise a doctor from TI's comfortable only safe products will receive FDA approval I would without hesitation take the vaccine scientists are urging more volunteers to help test additional vaccine candidates Jackie Quinn Washington

Thanks so much for joining me today brian. Thanks for having me diane. I am thrilled to have you here. I know that you're a big believer that most professionals operate without a strategy. And i'm wondering if he would elaborate on that please. yeah. I i think the experience that i have not. I'm not personally obviously it. Was this way personally. But as a as i've worked with so many people now over the years that there's a lot of professionals out there who we can grind our way to a certain level of success when we kind of combine. We combine our skills and our talents. Were good at what we do. Kind of combine that with our work ethic and you know even flying by the seat of our pants we can achieve a certain level of success. But i still think even those people are operating without a strategy meaning at a certain point you hit a plateau where just working more hours or doing more of whatever got you. They're sending five hundred miles instead of two hundred emails or whatever it is it just you realize that's not doing anything and you know when when i help these people it's usually because they don't have a strategy and and let me be specific what i mean about a strategy meaning. They haven't figured out in advance. They haven't done the work in advance to figure out where they get the biggest return on investment for their time right and their mental energy. And so that's what. I mean by strategy. Meaning you are very intentional about where your focus is so you can get the biggest bang for your buck. Yeah boy. I get and i agree with you. I i it so interesting that they it's like they hit the ground running and they just keep running and then one day they stop and go. Okay hang on a second. Where am i going allergy. The analogy i like to use is like you know you have think of a fly right. I mean flies are good at flying. We literally call them fly right. They're fast they're nimble. I don't think anyone doubts that they're good at what they do. And their work ethic is is uncanny but you know one fly winds up dead on the window sill despite its talent and its work ethic and other fly just turns its audie slightly right changes its focus of where it applies that talent and skill and it flies right out the door and so what you learn from these flies in and what you learn over time is that being good at something and being successful are two different things and again you can be good at your trade. You can be good at what you do and again just kinda grind your way to that certain level success but if you wanna go next level you need a strategy.
What is Citric Acid, and Is It Safe?
"Of this week this week. We're talking about a food. Ingredient called citric acid off. Remember that in gradient labels citric acid. Yes yeah we see it all in a lot of different food products and people ask you know. Is this safe. You know in what is it. Actually where does it come from. That's a good question. Yeah so citric. Acid is found naturally in citrus fruit. So that's kind of how it gets. Its name and its the particular type of acid that we typically find in a lemons and limes and it's what gives them their tart sour taste. So you would think that okay cool you know that's from its. It's natural is from lemons and limes right But unfortunately that's usually not the type of citric acid. That's in your food products because it would take a lot of lemons and limes to be able to get enough citric acid to be used in the food processing industry so the in in and around The nineteen fifties. It was discovered that it could be made from a A black mold called aspergillus. Djilas niger in when you feed sugar to this mold it creates citric acid of black mold. Not your house exactly. Well you'd be surprised. How many molds are used in the you know to create ingredients they. I'm not sure if i wanted to probably don't wanna know but this is this is how it's made so it's it's actually a odorless colorless compound And up until the nineteen hundreds. We got it from lemon juice but then researchers found that they could make it from this black mold so that is the type that is used in all the food products basically a synthetic manufactured form of the citric acid. So so what are some of. I mean some of the properties of it it. It gives sign of that sour tasting You know flavor to certain things and it's also a preservative. Zoe think about a lemons and limes the citric acid and lemons and limes. You know how when you put If you have a cut open apple if you put some lemon juice on or if you have an avocado you squeeze on some lime juice and that helps protect it from browning right so it has a preservation property to it stops free radicals from you know oxygen stops oxidation so obviously the the symbol of of making it not making it but what it looks like as a molecule citric acid is citric acid citric. Acid right yes. The molecule is the same. Yes so whether it is found naturally in a lemon or whether it's produced through a chemical reaction by combining a black mold was sugar. The end product is this molecule citric acid. Yeah and so. There's a little bit of debate in the natural food world about whether citric acid is safe or not in foods and so. I just wanted to touch on that here. We one is the there haven't been any like actual clinical studies showing that there's any kind of negative impact from citric acid in terms of like negative impact on the body However because it's made from a mold there may be traces of mold in it in like you know and we have to think about well. How much of it is actually being used in the product and how much mold might you know. If there's a trace amounts of mold in that small quantity of citric acid. How much of that is going to actually ended up in the food and will it really have an impact. So they do. We do know that. Some people are super sensitive to molds may have a reaction to it so like if people have food allergies or sensitivities. That might be one of the things. They need to avoid So you know that would be something and if if you get a really good food sensitivity tests that might even show up on a food sensitivity tests citric acid so but i think for the for the general population. That's something that may not necessarily be a problem but of course now there's other considerations the the sugar that's used in this reaction with the mold home is usually from a gmo. Beat oh so now. We're introducing g. m. o. citric acid into a product right. So you know so if that's something also you're trying to avoid gmo's that that would be something to keep on your radar about reading an ingredient list. It's ten it's going to be a gmo Created unless it says. It isn't so you you. You're looking at a product if the product itself says it's a non gmo verified Product than it wouldn't be from that you know they'd be using if they're using citric acid in the product they might be using it from an organic source of sugar so there are different. You know within the food industry there's different levels of quality that you can get with these things so but citric acid in the body. I mean actually has benefits has some impressive benefits and functions so It it creates something called with a once. You consume it. It creates something citrate which is the first molecule that forms during the process in the body called the citric acid cycle. Which basically is the cycle that when know when you consume carbohydrates your body converts those into energy within your cells so that that molecule of glucose which is basically your sugar from your carbohydrates it goes through this whole cycle within your cells called the citric acid cycle and then it turns that sugar into atp energy for every single one of cells so he citric acid is involved that and we need it in our diet who
Healthy Eating vs. Pseudo Healthy Eating with Shawndi Borup
"Well, I'm hello and welcome to another edition of the brake cables are cast going to plug wiring noise and the outfit and Fitness World and today off and super honor and have Sean D Bora in the house of show me all the living. So if you can't guess what she's all about it is all about healthy living and Tony is a healthy living wage. It's certified fermentationist a woman after my own heart there and a real food chef who is all about just being living proof that implementing a simple healthy. Lifestyle and healthy habits really promotes Optimal Health and well-being and just really making that easy and accessible to many folks who make to even just overwhelmed about getting back to the kitchen. And so don't you think so much for coming onto the show today? If you could give us a little bit of background about who you are and what sort you into doing the work they're doing in the world thinks long and it's a pleasure to be here such an honor to be part of your podcast and I I love you know, what you do what what this podcast is all about about breaking the rules and we'll get in touch with that and and how that applies to what what I can help your audience to really Implement especially in this time, but my back story, you know, it starts about three decades ago, and it was in the I was I had three young children and they all had their own little chronic issues, but my oldest daughter was she was the most ill with severe asthma and and so I thought Sitting in the rocking chair giving her another breathing treatment in the middle of the night and it just the thought came to me. There has to be a better way and thought just kept cycling through my mind, even though I was doing everything that I possibly knew how to do what to do. And so I was determined that night to find a better way. And so I ended up going to Rome a holistic practitioner and he gave me one sheet of paper and on that one sheet of paper was a list of you know, a list of foods that really nourish and feed the body and I I took that home and I you know, I'm a really competitive person and I decided okay, I'm going to I'm going to do this for one year and I'm going to prove that that food couldn't possibly make that much of a difference in the life in the health of my family and not as dealing with my own chronic issues at the time. I had chronic tendonitis and it was really hard to put shoes and socks on my children and I couldn't go bowling birth. You know do cartwheels in the yard with them or anything either because I was in so much pain and I kind of ignored it. You know, I was just in my late twenties at the time and I thought oh this just you know was is not really happening and I remember going to the doctor for my wrists and he handed me a prescription and he said, oh, he said you just got tendonitis and I said great. How long do I have to take this, you know as an anti-inflammatory em said for the rest of your life and that of course didn't sit well with me and I just had a I had a couple of those experiences my daughter would seem to get worse with her asthma and allergies when I gave her cow's milk. And so I asked the pediatrician do you think it would help if I took her off of this and she said it won't make any difference at all. And you know, that's again one of my mother raised tuition that gut feeling said into me like, okay, you need to try this anyways, and so that's what I did is I just started, you know, I took the information from this holistic practitioner that really phone On the whole body and under you know, not just symptoms but really building building a strong immune system really was all what this was all about. And I remember sitting on my couch dog doing my weekly menu. I had my dry erase board on my lap and I looked at the one sheet of paper and everything that he suggested eating and then on the other side of the couch. I had all my recipes the things that I knew how to do home and nothing match up and I and he was a proponent of eating a lot of raw food at least half of your plate because it's the enzymes in raw food that help digest your food and you know Concepts that we're totally foreign to me a hundred and eighty degrees away from the standard American diet, which I had grown up on and and new and so I just started getting back in the office and that's where I started and I started, you know, eliminating refined sugar refined flour, which of course as we you know, it's more talked about today drives blood sugar in the body. Which dog Ives Cravings which drives inflammation which drives chronic illness and so I just started, you know doing one thing at a time and one thing I learned about helping people get back in the kitchen is that if you try to do everything at once you're just going to get overwhelmed and that's when we feel stuck and we stop and so I really emphasize with people that you know, we know that we should be eating, you know, more vegetables. We know that we should be eating less sugar. But how do we make that happen? You know, how do we apply that in in our eating today? So that's where I show me healthy living came about because I wanted to help people to really practice how to feel their best. So that's amazing. I think experience is always off teacher and the mother of all Innovation. And so how long have you been at this and how long did it even take you to kind of get into that seat of showing people healthy eating from like learning wage? Healthy eating right? So I've been teaching people for gosh. I would say fifteen years now probably half of long, you know half of the amount of time that I've been doing it, but you know, I I started this journey, like I said about three decades ago and you know, I I told you that I was going to do that experiment for one year and proved it wrong that food couldn't make sure we make that difference but actually after a year my children's, you know, chronic health issues had completely gone away and there it was so amazing to watch
When To Be 'That Mom'
"That Mom Amy. Do you know what I mean? When I say that Mom, it's like that thing when you know it when you see it, but what is it exactly and there are times when you should be in town you shouldn't be in how do you know? When should you care if you're that Mom? That's what I want to talk about today. Well, and I think that's really interesting. Should you care if you're that Mom and also that Mom has a, So that we've talked about a lot before and the podcast which is that mom who has to bring up food at the celebration and Mara. It's like everyone kind of Goo Saint Andrews her eyes at that Mom. But when you're not that Mom for a second and your kid eat something they're allergic to you've got a big problem. So it's the classic dilemma that we talked about of like don't helicopter. But then the second you look at your phone at the playground someone posts on Facebook like God, she's not even enjoying her kids lives. Like it's a classic no-win situation that Mom and there's no that Dad I would argue you know that if it gave us know that Dad know right if that dad went to the principal and said, I think we you know shouldn't be celebrating Columbus Day anymore or whatever people would be like rushing to give this damned relation for being so involved in the life of the school. Oh if a dad was like my kids allergic to that people would faint a way that dad knows what his kid is allergic to what hero among them. Proceed directly to the knighting ceremony. That is a sir. Right there. So I think what that Mom does is that Mom advocates for her kids, right, even when it's uncomfortable I would argue for other people other parents and other kids we can talk about when you know when you need to do that, too. Yes, I think that's right and it can be really trivial. We got the idea for this topic because in our Facebook group home facebook.com cast last week. There was a mom who asked a question about her daughter being afraid to go to the bathroom in the kindergarten bathroom because they have the new brake lights that you know shut off after a certain amount of time and you have to weigh your hand around to keep them on but the kid is now terrified to go to the bathroom. She won't go to the bathroom at school and the teacher saying well just get your hands around but it's not working for this kid and the moms in the comments were saying time to be that Mom and this is a trivial thing except if you're the kid who is, you know, holding in your pee for 6 hours. You're terrified of the bathroom. You're terrified. Yeah, and it was time for this mom to be that Mom and go to the school and be like can you just will lengthen the amount of time before the lights go off, please? Yeah, and that's right off and I reminded me we were a long time ago in the before times in a hotel a motel room, you know, whatever we stopped on a road trip and the door shut off. It had a little a weird little you know, how Motel why do they always have to do stuff differently instead of like opening? It had a little button you had to push and it would open the door a sliding door our door opens like this, right like walk like can we just knobs have been working for a thousand years people like why do we need to improve on the doorknob? Maybe cuz it's Germany, but I don't care. Just give me a doorknob. Anyway, my quite old kid got locked in the bathroom and freaked out. He's scared himself to death. And the thing is we were all in the motel room. He was in the bathroom. I don't know why freaked him out so badly and I think maybe the lights turned off as well. But anyway, he got scared out of his mind. Oh and then I went and opened the door for him. I showed him how to do it. And I was like, this is how you do is fine. But for some reason it was weirdly traumatic on our road trip back. We ended up stopping at the same wrong. I'm not saying room same hotel motel whatever and he was like everyone has to shut their eyes when I used the bathroom cuz I can't shut the door and I was like, you know what you're silly like just shut the door. I saw you had it for but for whatever reason he was dead freaked out by this experience any wouldn't use the bathroom and wouldn't shut the door and he's not for you know, and so I let it go. Like I'm going to give you this one for whatever reason I can see this is really freaking you out. I understand from a teacher's point of view that it's like you have to be able to use the bathroom and just wave your hands and she's got twenty kids. But sometimes you do have to be like I'm going to just let you have this one cuz I personally see how about freaked out you are by it and a teacher would not you know what I mean? It made me think of that situation. I think when you need to be that mom that I'll give you a takeaway that I've learned over time that if you are going to khong The school about something it is you will get further if you come with both the problem and the potential solution. Like I think if I were to Mom this situation, I might do a little investigation of how hard is is it exactly to change how long automatic light stay on before they go off if it's just something that you can you know switch and it takes 5 minutes and the electrician doesn't even need to come then you can say that can be easily fixed when my oldest child was three started school having lunch at school. They didn't want kids to bring lunch from home because of the you know, the allergies that exist these days this kid had had peanut butter and jelly everyday for lunch for years and they wouldn't give him just a jelly sandwich. They wanted it to be cream cheese and jelly So what had protein in it, whatever and oh, yes, I remember this. We've heard this tale before or this kid would rather make okay, then I just won't eat so he wasn't eating lunch, which of course led to some incredible meltdowns in the afternoons. And so I went to the school and said can we just get a jelly sandwich with this kid? No way Jose. And and so then I want to do a little research and said here are three options of nut-free Butters that can we maybe make this option available. And I know cuz my kids have been at the school for fifteen years this month. We not butter sandwich is still available at lunch time. It was easy to fix because oh you made that change. Yeah, cuz I came with a solution not just the why should my kid, you know what I mean, like bring the solution if it's easy they'll do it.

Your we will reply to yourself very kindly. Thanks very much bye. So I'm just phone cadbury's and had a long conversation with one of their people on the helpline who didn't want the recording abused on the podcast. But he agreed that I could explain what happened on the call so when I went through and asked if he could tell me which items in the box of heroes had eggs in. He pointed me to the Cadbury's website said in order to find. Find out what you're allergic to on the Cadbury's website you have to click a box. Says you're allergic to nuts. Click a box. That says you're allergic to peanuts. And for eggs you have to click a box. That says you're a vegetarian did you -tarian because there isn't a box for eggs and there isn't a box for each of the fourteen allergens. The website will then filter out all of the Cadbury's products that have those items thin and we'll only show you what you can eat on. One of the things that threw up straight away was that I can eat cadbury cream eggs and I know that cadbury cream eggs are made with egg doc powder so he apologized for that and said there's obviously something very wrong and they put it in emergency request to get that information corrected but I thought it was rather poor on the cadbury a website to work out how you find out what's in the ingredients of a collection box like heroes or roses but this is what they think. A vegetarian is yes I'll vegetarian. Products are absent from all meat poultry game fish or shellfish on byproducts of slaughter dash excludes dairy products x eggs and honey and then it goes onto say all additives in San Son. Does that mean if I click the vegetarian box. It will include eggs in the definition of vegetarian. uh-huh exclude eggs in the definition of vegetarian. Cabras the information is not clear. You cannot give me the individual ingredients of everything. That's in the heroes box. Unless unless I've got a degree in website allergy anyway I have now asked the very helpful person on the end of the phone who was at his wit's end as well to escalate galet this and for them to contact me so we can have a bit more dialogue..

"I'm violently allergic mushrooms. Don't WanNa give me a mushroom stay in the area. It's no fun whatsoever and that's a analogy. That people have talked about right. You know we. We have Korean the eligible. That's something that comes in not often but it comes in so it's if we can actually food industry may cost accessible to everybody today. I think what we need is we need information as in all the allergens but actually only ingredients so that when people do come the call e coriander for county potato all seen it. But it's it's on us. It's on the restaurant to know what's in it. It's very difficult when you're being very creative you've you're creating eighteen new dishes all the time you might be putting into this and that is hard to keep track of and I totally understand that for us because we all doing what we're doing with Algebra Shinwa restaurant. We will work to recipes and if we go out of that recipe we have a process by which we can make sure everybody knows what's going into it and so I think there there's a real bull between the sort of maybe the chains where they say. It's always going to be like this. And maybe some of the more fine dining restaurants where you've got chefs. Who are being creative and you? You don't want to stop that creativity. They it's really important not to just hamper that creativity. Totally for something to be really really sad. We don't want to end up eighteen beige food forever forever. I'm GONNA completely change the subject and this is my biggest bucks back. I hope not Does this people who order mailing males say they have analogy. But so you've gone through problems and clean the area down and made them at every female then they order the I scream all single spray to free times particularly like say there is a pick one you lost in half county dairy and then they get pudding you go no problem we. For All these dairy free puddings then that no no. I love ice cream do you. That's really annoying because because that's giving everybody it's not really annoying. Actually because there were a lot of people with intolerances and this is where you have to be human about this so a lot of people having having tolerances but choose to go. Do you know what I don't want to eat dairy my mail but I'm GonNa take that little bit of ice cream because I know I can physically take aac a small amounts of dairy and that's their personal choice and actually it was a restaurant. You've got to respect law yes it can be Saudi straightening you know. You've you've gone to the trouble of going. Yeah this is absolutely nothing of that data and then they but I also know from speaking to other chefs and other people that that makes them think that we're rule making it off and they all state like if you've gone intolerance it's not such a bad thing if there's a contamination and your there's a lot more in but I can see how that that would translate insane to two other shifts. Don't take it seriously because it does happen. People GonNa and and you MILICEVIC. It's stressful when these things going wrong behind.

"From being at the front door they it needs talking about because I think from our side of it we doing as much as we can and more to improve the offering and to make it normalized if you like but sometimes it's the guest take some responsibility as well and actually if they have a big big issue and I'm just intrigued along with opens law? I mean I do have some sympathy and I think we touched on it already. If you've got allergies one's a long experience of going into restaurants is either can trust what they're going to say. Do they really know what I mean by analogy. Elegy you end up with the point where you don't want to ruin the dining experience by going through the whole Palaver of asking the question and actually what needs to change even seem to me is the allergies. Need to be okay. It's okay to talk about them. It's not the the dirty word people who've got allergies. No the game to be received as frankly as well well as a vegan would be received. That conversation is okay now but it isn't yet about allergies but that also needs to come back to our side of the policy if you'd like where chefs need to be honest as Vo and if they don't get it and don't understand they needed to say. I'm sorry I'm not comfortable. You know what that means the case walking away. K which is we've talked. What about these ruth and I talked about this the other day the does we'd much rather have honesty shaft? I'm awfully sorry Akon cope with that. You go that's fine. I'LL GET NEXT DOOR A. Nobody's going to be upset more importantly he's going to die Then then go through something which is at the end of the day of Sherard so let me. Let me talk about your front of House experience. Then Sarah when people come into your restaurant Yep you encourage them to talk about allergies it may sound Senate depends from the customer. It's not something that we it's not the first thing we say when people walk through the door now it's much more about welcome people in and getting them comfortable making making people feel settled. Because it's incredible. How even stay people onto his confidence going into new restaurant particularly independent? You know people are very confident going into chains because they know exactly what to expect and it's quite interesting that trying to encourage people into an independent restaurant maintenance feel comfortable as make no weather menus are where everything is is actually a huge part of what we have today we then find. There was some people that really want to become station about allergens. And that's absolutely fine. Everyone's trained to the Max about that. We can do breath. There are some people we have to coax it out over and there are some people as I say that we'll tell me as reaching that pudding they catalyse hold Western. Experience is about joy. And whether whether you're wasting alone or as a group it's about the joy of food and nourishing your body and all those things are so so important and I don't want it come clinical experiences this The way we were which I think could be translated into other restaurants that could be a way of dealing with morality and problems easier. We have extensive information in the front of House folders that we don't give customers we don't make them is nice a minefield to customers. Don't won't they WANNA talk to their friends or cheques social media wherever they are doing they don't have to read through pages of my book of. Isn't this interesting look. I'm so glad you said the experience and I'm sure this. This is the same to anybody who's got allergies. And the audience experiences you get given the book sold through that you find your own meal. We'll be back in five minutes. Is that right. And it's a really any negative experiences acceptable it's given to them. You'll enjoy yourself with that. Look after you so what we try and do so. We don't just do the fourteen major allergens agents because we found experience.

"We're talking chocolate. Cake sweets like any old would say jelly. Please say Jelly in. What was it like for you? So you don't have allergies. Take it actually. I do as I found out for myself three years ago when I hired anaphylactic response to antihistamine of all things. The very thing that's meant to make you pay nearly took me so yes so to. Do you have a couple of allergies myself now but yeah. He keeps on our toes. I've had to go back to basics when it comes. I'm still learning to cook so everything you can possibly imagine. I was unable to take anything for him when he was first diagnosed. He stopped breathing on me. Eight weeks old when I was breastfeeding him so it was actually reacting severely things coming through my breast milk and then came three very severe allergic responses that we almost lost in on each occasion and then he was finally diagnosed at sixteen months but he was so badly coveted exponentially they do the skin prick test on the arms today right the number then pet these solution and then score it and see if that's response there but he was say covered an expert. They actually had to do on his back so I have to physically hold him to me while they the various different things they need to fax try and to find out what was going on and at that point we found out it was the twenty eight and then my husband said what are we gonNA do. Feed 'em Aaron Mortar. which point I said give me a month? Let me figure it out and I was one of those people was in the aisle cursing in every single supermarket. Trying to find something safe. I started with that. Let's write down all the things the ICON D. and actually it turns out being easier all the things that I could do because that wasn't that much eight years ago but now things getting much better. There's an awful lot more that we can do and and things to progress so much. There's so much you can do in terms of by reportedly with all the different things we can cook last night. She did the most amazing cake for us is she was texting me and this is going to be safe. Calvin I was really pleased because I actually yes it really is. This is amazing. And it's not what's bad as Sino. How does it make you when people put in like last night to make a cake the sun so the first time it happened I actually burst into tears because his column said pretty much every single party he got his T? He's not able to eat the food that I turned expect people to be able to case for him. That's a problem and asked to have to deal with it. I don't expect people to be having to do that. And the extra stress on them. That's for us today and they need more often than not. We'll go to policy and I will reprobate whatever there is that people making find out an advance make sure he has an almost identical kit so when friends went to a laser quest party wasn't a month today and the MOM said to me I've managed to get hold of one of their boxes G. You want to make his food. Hand me the food before we get that and then we take it out so it looks the same as everybody else. Well that's column meant the world because he didn't look any different. It was all inclusive. It was safe life for him and he looked the same as everybody else. And that's so important when your child from a mental perspective knowing that you're say different already has done touched on before and to be able to search you can still do everything. It isn't GonNa impact me in a negative way and I will continue doing what every other child dose as well means. The world is an experienced in the. You had growing up with all of your allergies that you wanted to be like everybody else. Yeah my mom did what you did always Pratt. Food's always had something in separate she used to cold say using a supply and then make what they had but for me which I never felt like I was off then but in school always separate table if they were doing cooking lessons anything like that even if I was able to eat they didn't when I take the risk and that was that was hard for me. I think this is an area of allergies. That really concerns. Me Is the stigma that guess associated with it and the rejection. You get all actually the bullying. That happens as well done. You've got experience of this. What I got? Donald analogy ten fifteen years ago. It wasn't really that dot com in and skills. I was like the only kid I never really experienced. Boy and I know very common now. Kids are kind of got social media social engage- as now maybe why eleven twelve was. When I was in school? Social media wasn't really social thing so I think now probably does happen. Allergies wasn't based the news about them whereas now our our concern in the forefront of the news so kids now probably will. Where are we speaking about that? You can make hyman and feed. You compare taking things out what happens when you go to restaurants how how I can I can send the change of okay okay. So let's let's put a pin more is the best thing the restaurants could change to make your lives easier being truthful Yeah the needs to be truthful. Say that they can actually do something they need to deliver. What they're saying so cross contamination? If they truly understand you need to action. You're you're saying it's no good coming out and saying Oh sorry forgot. You couldn't have the cheese this grace it into your Your Taito take it out back. Scrape awful cheese give it same title bacteria which happened to us before and I've had to pull out an EPI pen and go. Well you're GONNA cool nine nine nine then because that's what's going to happen go into it properly and it does. Let's make a huge difference. You have to go through a bit of the threat and a bit of St yet. When I've had to do that with a key and I worked with a lot of restaurants now a lot of them a fantastic? Absolutely talk to the guys. I work with their phenomenal but there are still a lot that are wanting this difficult situation. What still needs to be done? So why restaurants a few weeks back saying restaurant start that dialogue with the customer to ask. If anyone does have allergies on the table. You'd be surprised at the mountains restaurants. Don't ask the simple question. Is everyone out of allergies when the do really juices Zay with the customer with the OJ. So I think just like really simple things. Asking anyone's got allergies. Thank give them the option. Like which wants pizza the head chef or you hop speaking to the head chef by giving that customer the option I feel like you really reduces enzyme when someone gives you options. There's been times where I felt multiple speaking to the head. Chef when you speak to head chef kinda juices Zayed and then he kinda you understand whether they're gonna you say you always you always go with what you feel in as well so if you feel. I don't think that Russian seriously all the algae menu just won't eat that all defined as well. I don't know if you've had setting we've had the work I do. There are a lot chefs blessed mood in the best that they can do but we have everyone in the industry that when paltrow effect. So you have some fatty diet that comes on. It's an icon in between this time and that time so they're in the restaurant. Why can't have that gluten free? All the dairy free option please. The chef goes to the trouble of doing it. They go through the starter and the maintenance so blatant and dairy free and the does that. We'll pass. ooh That's nice someone somewhere that we can't have that is go on a diet doesn't matter I can have a but anyway that's done damage. I think to with allergies people. Who are pseudo allergic? allegic exactly is that trust in. You do see this in restaurants. Were you talk to the waitress. I've got analogy and immediate. You see the balloon after the ads saying now you haven't you just fighting and you end up with is six cents which has to save your life. Yeah and it does kick in. I'm sure everyone will say there. Is that gut instinct kicks in and you got your. I'm convinced about this until stopping on a few occasions I went to a the peace peace and one on sort of an allergy. So you didn't have an Algebra new. My was blowing out with like such big chain restaurants scattered around wounded knowledge menu for all the different dishes and then she saw Well I can speak to the head chef from the way she said it you kind of got an offer. She's not taking me allergies Sisley on you know what I'm going to be a US. Sean and she's a lot you won't tell you have to be I think if someone's going to take your life seriously you late. She put Newark in someone else's essentially so you you've always got go. You go view and if you feel about not going to say either husband had that as well so back at the beginning of the everyone knows he follows me how much this blew up on twitter but he walked into a restaurant and asked is to say the same many eight and they said No. You have to sign this first before you're allowed to see it and it was a disclaimer saying that they were not going to be and this is a national chain. We are not going to be held responsible. If something in happens you have to sign this before we leave and let you see them any. I can see recent NASCAR Tim. She's been going back to something. Somebody said earlier one thing that I find works really well with restaurants and when they completely turned it round quite serious allergies. I I completely you get it when chefs. Don't feel happy feeding man. I would much rather someone said no but when they turn it around and say okay what do you like what would you like and when I feel the most safe is qualified when a nine everywhere can do this. But they'll do something that's just a little bit different so that everybody knows staff that serving giving me me and the sheriff does this person that has a special diet is having something different. And it's more about looking at what I can have. The menu might not be great. But can we do something else that makes you feel really safe from from my perspective as someone who doesn't live with allergies and if you're a food establishment and you the food and you have a kitchen and you have shut who's trained. Why is it not? Why is it so difficult to come up with something which which people can eat in the attend understand? Just don't understand affect fresh. They can do it go. That's what we did we kind of. We sold the things that he can have as opposed to the things. He can't Cook Chill as nothing that you can do. Because it's pre prepared and there's it's nothing on site that they can go on any single so they are just quite often very manic. Very I have worked in a kitchen. It's noise very nice. Quiet civilized iced easy environment where you have complete control over. What is happening to each dish? I do this should not. If it's a taste and people are eating in it then they should be aware of this situation and she she should have protocol in death trap and go to knives that occur relating. It's a different allergens. The the main issue is kind of the high street restaurants. Sometimes if you pay more money and say to go to a restaurant is is going to be cost like fake. You're going to get that experience. And the most Seattle agreed with that. Some of the really small independence. They do really good jump as well. The ones that are kind of not always come to everybody else vaco often beyond. Yes what about you lindy where you found some really good experience to actually you you blow about the places that you ain't. Yeah I think as I've started my blog I've looked more into the restaurants and I've kind of looked at the allergy memories which weren't around around when I was a kid and I've discovered that the places I have been eating H- I have allergies to them or like a burger the button. We'll be may contain sesame and antitoxin successively. But I've been eating at my whole life but now I know I don't eat there anymore. I don't trust people enough tonight because I'm looking into it. I don't trust myself to know what's careful to know what's good for me so right now my list is really. ABC's home that contain..

"Be horrified. Yeah transparency is about being able to see what ingredients are and one of the guests on that podcast. The food matters podcast. We took part in Julia Klein. She is from the sustainable kitchen and she made an interesting interesting comment about restaurants who cater for people with allergies and do that as part of their service. I was thinking about Lucy's on a plate in amble aside and ruth. We went there a few weeks ago. We talked about it in the podcast the other week we did and we said about it you couldn't you liked. What was it the putting that you liked the alice remember? So let's get Lucy on the phone. Let's have a chat to her and find out a little a bit more about her restaurant on how she deals with people. So let's dial are now I lose. Is Ruth Yeah how are you good. Thanks Yeah Hi Quentin Hi. You're a free literally. Just walk into the apprently. We just want to do a little sort of feature on. Ruth's experience of going to your restaurant and being bowled over I think by the attentiveness uh-huh right behind you gave so just quickly sort of tell you a story we would just find you really last minute as well. And they had a place available for a group of four and not the problem to cater for me and Lucy. You spent about twenty minutes ten to me about my allergies and then also coming down who is always gets a little bit worried about me so yeah. Thank you so much for that because it was really. We all had a lovely male. We were blown away by particularly me. Lemon drizzle pudding which kind hundred like taking over the whole lingering. Memory is just wanted a bit more of that really. Tell us about this restaurant that you run and how you cater for people like roof. You've got all sorts of allergies knotted Adelie because I love people and I love food and I also found in those days which is that he has written our Internet Internet with no telephone. My phone is very difficult to find things that For people who have particular needs for taking the third set years ago food was not definitely not on the radar in the way that is now people didn't really appreciate it what they put in what they would get out so they can also and how much it affected the health mile daughter. Who before I tell you the story with sixty three now at two children with leukemia when she was just two years old and and the only route that we could take to? Hopefully tension co her with stock of chemotherapy. I'm quite into alternative medicine and don't like like the idea of of putting too many horrible things in you but there was no other way so I knew there was a lot of writing and things in America and I loot those about you are what you eat and how you can handle yourself through food and how I found out about gleason on dairy and how it affects got So although I believe feeding her Clayton Free Diet to it I do think that it massively helped with her acceptance of the chemotherapy unser ability to resist some of the side effects. Sickness the information of the gut the mouth ulcers from patient. All that kind of thing and she didn't have a look at the effects that the other children had in the ward by not much like not having eaten. Sometimes you know stuff the off the trolley. In the morning she knew what she could and couldn't have even as little go on. I kind of then translated that into what I did in shop and I got not really into it and I realized how many people the everybody I'm trying to kick but how many people really didn't need it somebody wants to do. I need will be great and I can get. It's not it fine but you know you don't even glutinous and I can promise you if you did you. Wouldn't you know they could get and not how. I came down the path of restaurants that made show people that aware of what was on the page overestimate and now thankfully. We have to be very allergy aware and very young Conscious of what we put into the food that we feed. I enjoy doing now. What's the approach you take? Do you have a standard menu. which is gluten free or do you consult with each view guests and make something specially now and we have a standard menu so the majority of what we do is gluten free and we're sort of Remote would think dairy free as well wherever possible final. You have to be aware of theologists. I mean there are you know. They're quite off the main analysis. Now that you have to be aware of to to inform Yoga so when you run an establishment such as ours you know. It's quite the responsible thing but in terms of what we do. We quite well known for being a unique and individual. I think we all know thing individuals so we stick to script in the sense so if somebody comes in and says you know I have show or I have a particular ingredient salary. Or what have you and you know we are able to consign. Tell them what they can have which is a much nicer way of saying it's and then what they compact We have our own menu but because of the way on menu is done I mean most things do not need to have the ingredients in for example. Why do people sick and soups with flower? They don't need to you know taste to it. Just as good of course never thought of the refresh the way of looking at it and I love it was marked up so well I only needed to check. Does this putting have nuts in and I'm praying that I can have to lemon drizzle. We already knows wheat free and dairy free. So it's just it was really nice experience for me and I love the you're talking Lucy about looking at the things that people can have. They can't have. I think I'm learning a lot about doing. This book is having to take away the choices. The time so to be able to incorporate the needs of people is just such a lovely exploded and it was more like rather than feeling like I can have something but there's loads of bits missing from that meal which is often the case. Of course. I had different turn on Avocados. You make sure that the food looks and tastes the same very much. I mean the first bites with the is was ever. You won't be Oh food preference. You know whether your convoy or meat-eater fishy to a pet Qatar IAN or a Vegan. All you can't have you know sugar wheat flour soy all the rest of it you still want to be able to find. Food is really really appetizing. You know and I'm sure we will remember it no the days when you know you had read in teams with this offering. Yeah you know we we. Might you know really nice. gluten-free bread and and I'm where I think I think I think the key for having a nice experience an or should be. The case is communication so to walk into a restaurant. Don't have no idea what your allergies or intolerances are. All that happening is trying to touching them blindsided. You know people say oh. We've got somebody in our policy. Who is for to its intolerance DARRIEL COP now? It means that we already advised us up when they come in. indies might feel uncomfortable. They don't make us feel uncomfortable. The two way street and so I do think that knowledge is key. If you are phoning ahead took a restaurant then just let them know you know. I always let them know that. I don't want to sit in the middle of the room for argument's sake then you know. Hopefully I've on a nine hundred ninety conus wanted someone because from a restaurant points-of-view knowledge is a What we know we can do it? And it's the same in everyday life. Isn't it when you have to deal with knowing that what you are going to eat is going to suit your needs. We have to know that what we're serving. You is the right thing. Yeah can I ask. What would your advice be to the people who run the restaurant? The actually turned away. What would you say to them about how they might be able to approach things differently next time? Someone with an allergy gets in touch and does let them know. Look I'm coming in and all these allergies. What could they do differently? I think you you have to have a different head on as far as your training your staff. Somehow I'd like to think that people who run businesses change change their attitude. I mean there's no doubt that says the customer is always right. Let me put that to distance. The customer is not always right but we recap make them believe that they are the same thing different way really But it makes myself in a lot more comfortable unable to deal with program because may not be right but you know the member of team to try and make them feel right. I think where a restaurant is advice. Jason Avant Garde. She's GonNa be ninety four to go and they said you should be able to get the cool we can do do that. Is there anything else that you could. You tell us what you can hap- up. What do you like to finding out what they do like? It's much better than finding out what Tom T. I mean finding out what they teach is important but then find out what they like. What do you like me? Do you like vegetables. You like sauces. You know all those things. How many restaurants are you going to and you know for well being train I am? I reading the book chain such a refreshing attitude. I don't think I've ever been asked. What can you eat? It's a negative negative process. What can't you eat how to us? And and that gap bland. Your putting your trust in them and really know whether they're what they're doing but to be asked positively what you like like. It's refreshing simple thing to do. So when are we going to do very welcome. I definitely creeped trend. I think I think that definitely I mean I you know I love people and I think we all individuals you could serve a meal. Same email doesn't matter whether it's things that happen to the two to four people you're up now but everyone would have a different or how about. Somebody might not like it spicy too wet from two kinds of things. Nobody hot the same taste experiences. The next person to them so we need find out what people like and and sometimes restaurants put things out thinking about for the guest. Won't because you know popular you know. I learned that from the shot live on demand and supply no supply and demand basis and. That is a much better way of looking at your business really site..

"Have you all week Spin Ruth and contents we start with you is because it hasn't been that grey. Haven't done very very much apart from nurse myself because I've managed to get shingles. which is her renders? If anyone has had it they will know so painful. I've never experienced the like it and they. This is a side effect from one of the medications you were taking. I think so. I've been having blood tests while has been on methotrexate which is supposed to help with my expert expert and I think it has helped with my ex smoker if this is the side effect then. It's not a good option really misses horrendous. And I now can't take that drug anymore because it's given giving me shingles older people more susceptible to it something. You can get an old age more and when you run down. People with cancer can be at more risk. Because they've go away mean system on your immune system at the moment must be going haywire. Because you've given up topical steroids. Yeah it's probably not great and I'm on this drug that isn't immune suppressant isn't so we'll see we'll see what happens now off the methotrexate. Nothing bad so far. I'm I'm in so much pain I'm not even thinking about scratching shingles contagious no. You can't cut shingles for me. But if you haven't had chicken pox you could catch chickenpox but only if you came into contact with the virus sophie shed tiles flannels or something so oh he's highly contagious but not really. If it's covered up seems horribly unfair is you know going through this stuff and then naturally as a side effect this is going. Oh Oh really good steak. Is You wishing you better from from afar avenue wherever the airwaves. Today aren't we. And what about you Quentin. This has been the first week that I've had no issues since we started this podcast. Wow warm I'm delighted to hear. The two thoughts interesting does take quite a good few weeks now recording. This had no food issues this week and and not had any more of a flare ups. So I'm feeling pretty good at the moment. Yes I'm sorry to say I'm in the peak of health relative to up up really yes we should. We should celebrate the weeks. You issues or problems. That is the goal and that is good to hear so I gotTa Greenstock this week to go on my child on the Fridge Cassini. Oh my Lee has been Only halfway through my pregnancy. I don't fuck deliver food at the moment. A lot of food as in quantities are you craving. I'm not particularly craving anything. Actually I just want to eat a lot of talent not nothing. You notice that you eat that you not so keen on anymore anymore. Do you know the first time I was pregnant. I couldn't face of vegetable in the first trimester. Didn't wasn't interested in for you couldn't drink coffee. I love coffee gene so but this time not so much. I've actually been craving more sweet fruity things unliveable. Three twice Anthony But we have had a chat today. Haven't we couldn't him have because we're in the officers of food matters and we've been recording another podcast which should be out any day now. The food matters podcast. So interesting wasn't an who is a really interesting panel discussion from lots of quite high up. People undefeated industry and one of the topics of discussion was about transparency. That people who got allergens just need to know what's in the food and you need to have traceability ability right the way back to the production plant and that does not exist. The conversation in that podcast was interesting because it does exist in the organics world. If you you claim to have organic carrots you have to be able to trace back to the farm. Exactly how much insecticide you have or have not used in order to have the organic stamp. It's it's possible the begs the question. Why don't we do the same for allergens roof? You must have come across this before in discussion people sites. May we not sure what's in. This is not something we made here you know. They've bought it in and they haven't got any person it came from. Yeah I have been told that before when you just sometimes you take a risk so it would be good if the food industry had traceability and I wonder how difficult it is for them to set scheme like that or maybe this resistance from the food industry to do it. You can imagine the lobbying against it interesting to be in the room. When they're doing that I think they were? DC catering for people with allergies as a lot more work like you've got to make up your men Muse. Equal to mark them with allergies are in there and then you can't deviate from that menu recipe and I think we're already seen is hard work though. I had an interesting experience against this week. Related to this I went to buy something in. Waitress was a green sticker on the product which said recipe change. Oh never seen Anywhere else up. Good boy could I do with that because when they do change the recipe as somebody with allergies. You need to know what they've changed because I kind of our take. It was just something like a sausage roll or something but they had actually changed the recipe and they fly ended up with a little green sticker. And I thought well done you. I have had that before with something thing where I was eating. It and my mom was then sitting there going. Oh stop eating this change the recipe and it's got Niba Domino's in it but yeah we hadn't noticed in this quite quite interesting. We're talking about free from an future of free from and that there's been a such a massive trend in wanting into eat vegan vegetarian food and the impact the butts on the food industry and we would kind of talking about him. That's hard for people with allergies because because Vegan foods are on the rise and particularly young people are making the choice to go Vegan or plant based the food industry is still lumping that together. Yeah the with allergies and it's probably dealt with by the same department and he shouldn't be because that different to say about you ruth but I've experienced when you say there's something about allergies. There is an element of assumption. You must be a Vegan. Yeah I've had asked me loads of times. Yeah see then getting only you're not getting any dairy or okay any meets either. Give me. I need my degree when that happens and also for Vegan is given something. That's not plant-based say there's milk it. They wouldn't necessarily know. But if a dairy allergy person is given something no can be really ill wants a choice. I'm one is. I'm not sure if people take so much care for somebody that's making a choice. I wonder with Vegan foods actually whether there is a need to worry about cross-contamination. I mean you'd think that they'd be passionate about it and I'll bet they're not. I think the saw those people offering the food maybe not. That's another addition of the allergy. Did they focused. I'd.

"Breath you shared an article about how the headline was quite dramatic. Wasn't it wasn't it because trendy nuts pick upon trendy nut. milks put coffee chains out of bounds. For Allergy sufferers. That was in. The Telegraph makes a really good point which I had never considered before it was not not out of bounds it. It's just not safe. I've talked about this before. If you go into the coffee shop pure borough familiar the beautiful machines. They have the spout that they for the milk with. I'm so time to do the sound defense copy mattering inbound like it. If you just look at that the one second and you've got serious dairy allergy. You're not going to buy a coffee made from the dirty rag. That's been wiping all of the milk. Residue off of that spouse McKay decided. That's not good for me. That spout is dipped in milk. So if somebody wanted a different kind of milk so an almond milk soy milk presumably they would steam heat that as well with the same spout. Yes yes now you've got cross-contamination of dairy pigmy outside with the sake rag is not going to get the allergens off. Why not for two reasons? One it's going to be inside the spout insights insights about. Yeah and secondly. He's a cursory whiter. Really making me not want to have a spout and I've been I've heard people IOS said to me. Oh the steam gets rid of the outages. It doesn't I used to work in a coffee shop. Many many moons ago and I have been one of those that use the dirty sake rag on the okay. I'm actually milk is quite difficult to get office because it does stick. It doesn't wash off with water. It's great and by the end of the day. You have to really give it a good scrape because it's from the holiday is is actually quite gross on this cross-contamination the other way of course. Because if somebody like me who can't do almonds if they were to some almond milk. Gosh and then give me dairy milk. There would be a potential for cross contamination there actually so it works. Both ways. Probably haven't thought about that. The never thought about it. So you were saying Ruth. There is a work around in their. Take your own milk. Yeah just make the poor milk street in. Just don't have nice hot steam. That's the saints. Defeat the object of one of these coffeeshops with forty two different kinds of marketing copy. I still enjoy go for a coffee. Allows you what you have just recently. I have been having plant milks but I will watch them. Pour into my drink. And what do they say when you challenge them probably think I'm slightly weird and I've been given hot hot milk. Instead of oat milk it was like a language barrier. I'd said Oh milk and she'd said Oh yes. I thought she said back but she said hot milk milk. Unless it's I asked oat milk and she said Oh you say hot milk see sound so similar that you can get confusion. Yeah Ashton Translation. That me. 'cause I'm really really fussy. I watch you pull my milkin. Please don't trust you come over here and do it once again. It's it's all about trust and can we trust the BARISTA. Can we trust the waiter. Can we trust the restaurant. They're doing thousands of coffees in the day. Okay so they just go on autopilot as we say time and time again it's a world of jeopardy Outta even with friends make the amount of times it happens in these people that know and now be handing me my drink and they just put milk in so come.

"And welcome back to -ality today my name is Alice. Rose and I'm joined by Gordon and I'm Ruth Holroyd and today we're going to be talking about Our Week and we have very exciting special guest exciting for me. Lucie Nicholson who runs Lucy's on a plate in animal side and we chatted about in previous episode of the podcast and she really does have her kitchen under strict control. On the allergist rule. Catered for that. We'll give her a ring in the moment first small. Let's talk about some things that have happened in the news. Recently one. That was very sad. Was the eighteen year old boy who died from eating a burger. It's just so tragic a car. I mean. Every time one of these stories comes up. You just can't believe it's happening in a way and that is to be one after the other doesn't it exactly is is to still happening especially expandable yes. His name was Owen Carey and he went to buy a Burger Byron Burger the O two arena London and he told them about his dairy allergy. Now I must admit if I had a dairy allergy. I wouldn't think to ask when I was buying a burger. So so what happened Ruth. What happened with this story appears that the staff weren't really aware of this either but there was buttermilk on the actual chicken so it didn't look like it has the need milk in it but it was marinated in buttermilk? So own wasn't told that in staff didn't know that the problem with that restaurant is they were going with the verbal communication indication. So if you're looking at that Burger yeah you're right. Looks like it's got no dairy in it. It was cooked in dairy and that then makes it unsafe summer with dairy allergy. And what they're saying. Now the family Nia saying that is not good enough. The verbal communication of the restaurants or of noisy staff turnover is really high and also customers can often be young. So it's just they just have to change how this is done here. So he died fifty five minutes later there were so many arms of his girlfriend is just talk to his heartbreaking. Now did he have an EPI pen. Did he have antihistamine. No he didn't have his with him. Which is another thing which we talk about in other episodes with Dan who is a bit older than young men are quite risk? Because where do they carry their they. They are the ones that leave it behind often. She's one of my bugbears that you have to be carrying them all the time but it must be said. The blame needs breath to lie with with the restaurant. Does it staff training isn't it. And the communication. The the staff were asked the question and they couldn't I answer it so they must have been lacking in some kind of training now. I understand that in fact that they've upped their game. So there's a there's a quote here from Emma Katcher sister who said that Byron who really up their game and they do go above and beyond now as to what the current legislation says and they proactively ask if any body has allergies so they've learned but it took a death to do that. How many more times is this going to happen before something changes and what needs to change? Well I think from what I've learned is the people just need to start taking allergies more seriously it needs to be a higher priority list and cannot take a death breath to change this the Muslim. Yeah true I wonder if when people have reactions with reporters well in my case in most of my energy rations take the case with. Oh and he's left the premises. He's not there if he didn't have a serious reaction if he got better. Would you have gone back to that. Restaurant would just never gone back to Byron with have complained poll story there of what we do have less severe reactions. Still bad they still might put you in hospital. But you haven't died if I'd gone back to a place because I'd had had reaction. I don't think I would have got much engagement. Frankly you can imagine a scenario. Hello I came into your burger shop. Yesterday I felt very over. Twenty for hours cannot speak to the manager and the manager will just write it down somewhere. Yeah exactly nothing will change change. We have to keep reporting these things yes it might. I'd be a pain in the ASS for you to go back to that restaurant. Talk about it when you're actually you find now it's over and done within probably just want to get on with your week but you want to read card that yeah. The responsibility needs to be on on both sides customers. One of the things that I've started doing is reporting restaurants the Food Standards Agency. Especially if I think. There's some learning needs to happen. You report it and the Food Standards Agency will look into it. You don't have to do anything. What do they do when they've got complained? They speak to the local council and and then just as you would with a worry about food poisoning or unclean kitchens or something like that they will investigate and it's it comes under the same remastered environmental health of people. It's not easy to rates. Can you just quote long questionnaire. I've done a couple of times now. You know what they had an APP where you could just report something quickly and easily as this kind of stuff this development funding that hard. But you've got to go look for that and know that you can do it. It's probably any probably know exactly. Not many people probably now and it's probably enough of a barrier isn't it distinct comp. Copy Austin you've lived on if it's not a serious reaction or you haven't had to go to hospital you just move on. You never go back. Go back especially if you have been if you've had experiences in the past where you haven't been taken seriously and people have just gone. Oh sorry about that the point I suppose it's a whole load of ideas in my mind about how we could address this. I think the APP would be terrific. Thing reported APP if it was managed managed a proper way so that you knew that it was going to the environmental agency. They were tracking all these things and then there were some followup. I've had follow up every every time it's quite slick once you've done it you know they need people to know about it and to make it easier to you if you made it an APP. You'd do it while you're in the restaurant not twenty into a new download the full monty intimate exactly and it gives you. It gives the consumer the power back. Because it's like right in. This has happened to you. Higo his real easy way to do something about it without you. Having look. Would all be a cell phone and move honorable position after you ready.

Three primary schoolteacher and have a successful instagram page called allergy stars where we aim to raise awareness of children with alledges ages.

Always Co two auto jettison next to you is Tanya Edna Peruse my dot says she died from an anaphylactic reaction in two thousand sixteen. We had an inquest last year. which was really publicized and following that? We set up the Natasha Allergy Research Foundation. We were really really clear that there's a huge gap in research. Not Enough being done in our is setting in this country not enough sort of from the VHS and we're looking to change that on you've done amazing things so far with the TASHA's law should not be underestimated because that's made a massive difference to all all of us with allergies and we'll continue to do so we'll come back and talk some more and on the end of the line here is my co host Ruth La Quenton. I'm Ruth Holroyd and I blog and the active on instagram. My blog is called. WHAT ALLERGY DOT com? I've had allergies. All My life started for the Penology and I've been on the allergic march ever since collecting new anyone's dairy wheat and soy too many mention so we always joke about this. Because I've got about five allergies. Ruth House twenty-five Allergies Dan. You got just the one. Well I say just the one. It's all no so. Yeah the boy I'll be. I'll be safe and Tanya the the journey you've been through which has been horrific and no parent should have to go through that. Tell me about Natasha's allergies. What she allergic to say? Natasha had a fast anaphylactic. It reaction when she was six months old to banana. Tiny little piece and she had an anaphylactic reaction. We then all-star doctor when she was nine months old is our problem putting on formula and cow's milk and they said no note should be fine so we gave a cow's milk formula. She had another reaction. She tried to sesame seed Stich touch let it blew up so we need. Sesame was a problem and we'll capture away from nuts. We never should have had had that diagnosis. It wasn't offered but we felt it's easier to avoid it than I am says morality. Amy You've got any allergies allergies but so you didn't know anything about allergies until you're does. We were thrust into the world villages three years ago when she had her first reaction to you. Well peanut sauce and it really is. I never had any allergies. I never really experienced. What people with allergies you? Just have to go through and one of the things we've all got in common. Is that when you meet people who don't have allergies. They either. Don't believe you think you're you're fussy or they just don't know what to do so we've all had very different experiences of that Tanya. What what was your experience with Natasha? When you've got a son Alex as well allergic to anything? No no allergies. Yeah so what was your experience with an attache growing up. Yeah it was it. It was really difficult. I mean when she was little just going into people's homes so hard she's got asked Smith from milk proteins in the ass so if somebody pizza the night before four and it was winter so they didn't open the windows. She'd have a huge Asmara. Talk and we'd have to leave home. Say in the beginning I think it was family actually getting family to understand the seriousness because they would help with child care and then when she started school. I mean there are so many stories we could be here for hours. It was really really really difficult as she got older trying to get her friends to understand the severity take because they thought she was exaggerating and she was attention seeking so so she suffered with that quite a bit and then becoming a teenager and wanting to be like everybody else and not being able to be that that was difficult not done. What was your experience when you became a teenager did you? Did you take your allergies less seriously or did you take them more seriously. I think there's something more is order. Become a bit more educated about this aversive allergies on reading a bit more into it and I think me personally I definitely was more. Oh kind of on the ball with make did always carry the jets when on with anything. More confident to be vocal about allergies so is making sure my friends knew what to do for action. So That's interesting is about your friends as well when you've been a big campaign for teaching people how to use auto injectors and so on I think for me. It's always been very important because when I meet someone new off me and new friend or stranger. What people don't know how to administer the all the Austin the gesture? Everyone thinks general. Everyone thinks she stopped the jetsons at the heart because our it's perceived in films so in a lot of these Hollywood films the show show the way to use your jeter so I'm really trying to raise awareness about the correct way to use the art and jeter so essentially it's adrenaline so when you have a severe eh allergic reaction you next swells and you can't breathe so the jets gives you an extra lifeline. Wish you always get to the hospital in time but everyone does.

"Very that the early winter do somebody something that the more resilient they can be or their own symptoms will show up after the lead into the three or four or five yes yeah exactly there's no so you would do as if you were winning you know so you still do it where I is exactly offering s. food but that is something that you know the NHL Scotland haven't changed yet I'm actually you going to see our allergy specialist next month so I kind of want to sit down and actually talk to them about in a practically although that's the suggestion what what do we GP's what are we actually going to recommend to patients because the advice is have chart with your gp me I am I going to do obviously taken take guidelines it takes a little while to change but it would be good to have a kind of practical stance on it when we look at the NATO and the guidelines there's a formal set of guidelines about how you deal with allergies which is what the recommendations for how GP's are supposed to respond is that the guidelines do exactly so there are guidelines there lots of guidelines that could the nice guidelines I think the national collection and there lots of aren't guidelines that are produced for everything in terms of diagnostic pathways treatment pathway so allergy is part of that as well but your knowledge now of that is that there are Arizona's or it could be a lot better is more just that there are maybe a couple of caveats that have come as a result of the study that earlier action is better the the guidelines say to delay it but I think a lot of people think that they should delay and interestingly just anecdotally through but messages with Instagram I guess a lot of people checking with the this health professional told me that I should ask me because I'm allergic to nuts introduce knots until after the age of one is that correct obviously that's not correct that's not in keeping with ehich guidelines so the problem is that the guidelines all that clearly information isn't necessarily no easy to find right I know it's getting spread out either to the Piper has health professionals who should know about stuff like is there a problem with gp may have been practicing him like a very long time so old GP's who might appeal stuck in the way they get so much like we're not talking about just waiting allergies there are millions of conditions could have and they'll be getting stuff through nice guidelines from stuff every day every week we probably can't read the bill I think the thing there is I haven't been practicing medicine for a really really long time but even already in my career things have changed for example the treatment of blood pressure has changed and what we used to use first line is not first line anymore and let recommendations for various things have changed so it's hard heap on top of all of it you would hope that so every year we have to have an appraisal which shows that we spend a certain amount of time specifically fifty two was of the going over New Orleans and almost like a bit of revision let's say Calicut refresh so that is something that doctors have to go through a year generally should be over widespread of topics but I guess you know that could be concentrating our people have their favorite topic about things so you know maybe people will tend to certain things and how can someone coming to see the GP you might get some information be assured that they've got the correct mention I how can they sort of cross references someone else I guess asking people like you on Instagram we'll take questions and icon hates tricky sometimes because sometimes I know the answer and I want to tell them if it's really specific than I always say that I can't give any personal medical advice I'm just because it's not it's not safe absolutely boss always say you have look at these guidelines say the NHS website whilst a little bit dry perhaps to read through which I think is why lots of health professionals using instagram I think that's why it's becoming more popular because it's just a little bit more by justice fun say but the NHS website has got really good guidance not paying say this is what I've read can you tell me what your opinion is or something like that yeah definitely exactly and I certainly gets a lot of that I'll always ask patients now rumors routine really have you have you googled symptoms today what are you worried about because that is a huge factor in a lot of things while I feel like if I know they're worried how can approach it from a slightly different angle but yeah exactly the same you know if you're worried about something can you just want to double check anything that they therefore I need this test or referral than be quiet opening clear with GP the GP will probably quite like that because they feel like they've they've got something to kind of walk on the impression is that Dr Google is a bad thing in the manufacturing because everybody comes along on those that use it wisely can enter get a Agassi much quicker yeah in a way exactly it can dot Google can be can cause all sorts of things and you know a lot of the time it's I think Assen it's just reassurance of well this is why I don't think you have this and also what website was it the looked on there are certain websites that will always direct patients to the I'll say L. Helpful Save the NHS websites very good one and then there's also another one just could patient UK patient dot co dot UK and that's just all got lots of information good for professionals for the general public as well so gazillions of them those where bendy and all these American I you can spend many yeah diagnose yourself with one hundred illnesses exactly that's fine I think just as long as you come in and speak to someone about it rather than worrying at this now and that's it there's nothing that can be done about it at least going in and checking in with someone is is handy and sometimes people will come in with things that I've you know I haven't had before and that doesn't necessarily mean that it doesn't exist I'm say look okay fine you're worried about it it's a possibility let's do these tests to see so you daughter is now to turn a two and a half off rattles by going to daycare or assery yeah so she's at nursery a few mornings a week and then grandparents help out in the afternoon as well which is yeah we're very fortunate I would say with the allergies your grandparents Toco it took a while to for them I think to kind of fully grasp because I think allergies are so common nowadays because obviously of their children had allergies and no one they know has allergies I really think they have to worry about it that much so it was not concept of wait hang on what she allergic to again because a whole list isn't there rather than just one thing so I think for them it was also quite overwhelming so what I did was I wrote a bit of a plan and then sent it to the millennium email before I went back home attendance back to work so kind of what she was allergic to the hospital very good they they give you a management plan about what she can have it but can you double check and probably will still do that anyway now and I think it's always it's always good to double check anyway but I think they are definitely more confident in knowing what she can and can't have and I think with allergies it's really easy at the beginning to focus on what you can't have but now there are so many things that she's tried and we know that she's fine with that also makes you just instantly feel a bit more comfortable as well they'll take her out to a restaurant for example Mel know that she can have this dish at that restaurant mine which is great because my experience was that my relatives this was some generations ago was that exists allergies you know going have an egg you'll be fine yeah that'd that's fine do you have her medication bring that into us this is what we do with kids you have allergies so that just instantly puts your mind at ease as well today is a quantum productions podcast.
"allergy" Discussed on The Allergy Today Podcast
"Lawrence's with everybody who survives copes in this world where all allergic to you name it these guys have probably got it and we understand what it means to have to give our trust to people and I was like Ooh so I didn't get any awhile and and then I think let's see she's still shake one day and gradually now she's not or how why and sometimes you can get an irritant type reaction when you how something for the first time it can look quite read around the mouth for example the everywhere the foods been in contact with but then subsequently after that things Abacha that's a possibility again that's another thing that I also explained to parents is that the parents of the rashes importance of fake and take a photo for example when it happens and then show someone that can be really really helpful and kids can grow out off the allergies cutler yes I had an allergy about one I can eat egg fine yeah about the how old are you any grout I'm not sure because I avoided it until I was in my teens how did you find it again did you everyone was having a fry up and I just thought I hey could have an incorrect things I'm going to have that egg and nothing happens I've been waiting all my life is very add reactions Xabi mine is getting worse yeah my reaction is changing and it seems to be much more sensitive now than it used to be but I don't psychological whether it's always been like that whether I'm just more doesn't sound like the most so Steph as a GP then you're you're you've got a different appreciation of allergies when patients come to see you yes definitely from a diagnosis his point of view I think as well and like I said you know unpicking symptoms I'll probably take a little bit more time with them just to really try and explain every think of the diagnosis and the different types of allergic reactions as well because I think that's an important thing to distinguish between an intensive what you're looking out for and also what to do afterwards if maybe they've been referred but the referral the appointment hasn't come through quickly than maybe giving them a little bit of extra support in the meantime as well in your medical training what emphasis is given to allergies how much training is given to somebody in medical school is there enough what type is it what and what do you know now that you wish you'd known then I think obviously we learn about allergies it's more the medical side of things definitely no intensive why do they occur what also the immune system are involved in it how you would treat some with an axis etcetera probably less emphasis on living with allergies and the implications of that as well I think that's definitely that's different I guess that's the same with a lot of aspects of medical school you know and the thing is it's there so they say takover it's really hard to I suppose go over what it's like living with chronic lung disease for example and I think that that is something that you will gradually get expelled it's all of as you come across it on a practical level is being g. p. e. and seeing kids in if Kim seeing parent mini baby concerned parents as well that's something that is it's quite nice to be able to at least you're say give them some resources and say you can have a read of this and what sort of resources recommend to them well this is the thing I guess it's also fairly limited which is why something like this podcast is is really helpful as well I'm I think that in Thames of resources they all gradually increasing so before I think the only ones I really knew of a allergy UK and then access dot Org in terms of online resources but now while they're things like this put cost thereof I neither few mums as well he's in Renton books about diagnosis and with food allergies etc so point them towards that and just say you know have have a read of this book because it kind of covers all aspects about living in dealing with them please labeling enormous mountain that when you're faced with for the first time now where do you start an yeah when you've got your child in front of the GP you just want some days they do this Oy yeah and that's not easy to do I guess as a GP yeah you're right it's it's not easy and I think that even now in times of allergy I feel like I've got it all down let's say I feel like I know about the bits that we've been through and I can see the immediate challenges that we've got maybe in the next year or two coming up in terms of kid's birthday parties becoming more weather she's deaf initials eating something that's different to other people but I haven't thought even thought about you know what about when she goes hisself with her friends and school school and facing so I feel like it's I can talk about it from a satin from my perspective at the moment that's going to be an enormously expanding level as you S. she gets older definitely and that's where the peer support comes in right so speaking to other moms have been through it before you like a year two years ahead of you that was going to Byu find usable. yeah absolutely and I think that's why things like instagram a really great as well because you know there's a growing algae community I suppose in a lot of MOMS documenting that journey with it a few of them have kids who are a little bit older so the kids are in school and I think one person I've been following she's been going into unschooled to kind of talk about the allergies as well to everyone so it's just really interesting to see how they're helping and how they're managing dealing with it Have you heard of the book living with allergies by Emma Amber Scotto I think yes yes yeah that's really good actually I'm actually she did send me can I it's it's really good and it just kind of covers everything that you need so that is something that all direct patients to yeah so then you became the GP mum the why question I actually started my instagram account during maternity leaves so it was when my daughter Gosh probably about six months old and I actually I started it just as a regular Mama Count Start I already had my snow one I started an open one because I was helping out with more Mush Mush it's like an APP to help you meet other like minded parents around the areas we really like a dating APP but for lum's duds basically and I just carry on kind of enjoyed it after that and then I realized that a lot of my friends were asking me Eh medical questions and then one person I know throughout instagram obviously she said why don't you why don't you do it medical side of things as well that people really really boring I'm trying to read anything about medical information much rather look at pictures of my daughter instead and then my husband I think it was my husband who like why are you spending so much time on this app what are you what are you doing it provides maybe information that just just see what happens and it's been so much more successful than I ever thought it would be I've met some great people through I've learned so much as well through it I think social media you can get a really bad rap sometimes box there were just some incredible accounts and I think if you if you follow the right people and you surround yourself with the right type of accounts you can learn so much and get great support as well something you've definitely had experience with Alice through the you'll you'll page as well yeah and well I mean I was gonna say I think what happened with yours happened so quickly as well as this kind of really took off and it just shows that people really actually people really need this kind of information that you're sharing and they actually wanted in a in a medical but it's coming from it's coming from a really friendly personable perspective and that was so brilliant about pause about social media and it's in the way that we access information now has completely radically changed the style of information that you deliver them it's it's medical but it's not heavy medical exactly so we've instagram oversee certain length your post can be so it could you know the captions and the things that information that I will write about you know economically be so long which I think is get because it just means that then I have to really break it down into kind of important bullet points the kind of need to know essentials the basics but will cover anything really so from I think my most recent post they've been about potty training thing is I'm not that's not exactly medical I've teamed up with someone else to parenting coaching what about potty training I've done things about constipation mastitis breastfeeding you know what to do if you have a head injury just kind of little things so not just focused on allergies exactly so yeah so it's kind of if you think of actual instagram page like each host is usually a different medical topic and then I'll intersperse that with a few other things like what we got up to the weekend for example but then I will also new diagnosis how my daughter diagnose the different allergy tests are available as well how to win with allergenic foods I think that's something that a lot of people are worried route so how to win your your kid is sick around six months old and you think right they're ready to have some food now Ooh but what about peanuts and I've heard that the the people have peanut allergies is probably better the delay that 'til later but actually that's incorrect unique that actually earn introduction is better avert point there ought to be worried that they'll do something that is potentially fatal yeah exactly and you've got to have competences apparent that your child is actually probably more resilient when you think yeah and kind of set up so yeah the tips for example for giving something that's potentially allergenic say something like if you're trying a nut butter for the first time so I will recommend the obviously it's done during the daytime and the morning ideally so you've got the time to observe them for a couple of hours off towards I'm just try a little bit faster than wait for ten fifteen minutes to see if there's any reaction before proceeding kind of little to sort of rub it on the lips he's only kind of just touch on the inside of the mouth and then just see how they all just understandably a lot of people are worried about an unsure of what to do you and then sometimes we'll put office result but actually the Longley off all the more likely they are to have an adverse reaction to it this is the is to show that actually introducing the age of one or two is going to make any difference and actually the incidence of allergies is higher in older dron and at the moment there's a really interesting study that was done recently which suggests and I think in America they've already changed guidelines but suggests that actually introducing some allergens between four and six months can be beneficial for some babies as well say for example the ones you have may be moderate ex Ma as well so there is some rationale and doing it so how'd you do that if they're not wind if you're still breastfeeding a child four months how do we introduce the allergens.

"Hello and welcome to the algae today podcast with me Alice Roast Ruth Holroyd and Quentin Howard and we're here to shower allergies now listeners allergies and you probably don't have allergies or don't understand them just to make you feel at home I've got about five allergies and Ruth you've got about twenty five and I have on that we've we've really have called it covered we also understand what it's like for people who don't have allergies so whether you're a mom looking after a toddler who won't eat or your son thanks Mike Asthma or CEAC you've come to the right place guest today for podcast and that is the GP I'm Stephanie Louis Hello Steph welcome to the allergy today podcast tell us a little bit about yourself your GP and you've learned to deal with allergies yes exactly so I have been working as a GP I don't actually have any allergies myself but my almost two and a half year old daughter she was diagnosed with a few food allergies when she was around five and a half months old so we've kind of been dealing with it since then have to go through the process obviously of guessing it side nosed and just really getting our heads around what it means and the kind of future implications for her as well what she allergic to so she's allergic to dairy eggs sesame and all nuts as well so five and a half months because my daughter's the same age so she's three in December I'm just thinking five is really young to have been diagnosed it's it is pretty young I suppose it's I feel like it's good because I knew from very early on I know that a lot of people struggle with time diagnosis and taking longtime in that can be quite frustrating obviously with that the different types of reactions high one was office despite because she's got immediate the immediate type reaction so we actually figured out that she had judge Some sort of allergy when we were on holiday we were actually in the Maldives like a first family holiday together luckily my husband he's GPC We take a whole suitcase full of medication with and we hadn't started leaning because she was five and a half months and we thought well we'll do that when she gets back but whilst we were there you know she was just grabbing it every think on I think we just didn't look for one second and she'd managed to get some ice cream all around her mouth and we thought Oh okay well she had her first taste of solid food but then within about a few minutes we just need this red rash all around her. mouth kind of spread to her face that kind of typical high type rashly guests all over her body she looked really really uncomfortable but luckily that's as far as her symptoms want to come back to the room we had some Perret on that we'd brought with us gave her that and actually things settled with within about half an hour so we though Oh Gosh clearly there is you know there's something going on here and then went back home I was trying to think of Watson ice cream it's like well it's eggs it's Sterry so I thought well might just be maybe it's egg because also I remembered when she was even younger I dropped a little bit of egg on uh face when I was eating I think every parent has trump's in on their baby's head anyway and she just had like small little patch of Retinas must be egg let's just get on with weaning and let's see how things go try to with baby rice which I think has milk in and she had similar reaction again so then we just though what do we do from now we're kind of trying to start weaning and it was a little bit anxious about what we would be able to give her a give her actually just skipped everything and just booked her in for a private allergy appointment went and got all the testing done probably a couple weeks after and they did the skin prick testing and then showed up that it was all of these and I think that was the shock it was we didn't expect it to be many we thought it was either dairy or egg rather than Oh and it's this and it's this and so that was alarming I think and able to tell at that point and how serious allergies could be or was it just it was probably GonNa be the reds hives yeah I think it was difficult to say I think with the dairy and eggs because we've kind of seen the two reactions that she'd had when she inadvertently or had had those things it was just the rash with the nuts and the sesame actually we still don't know and I think that's the thing when people ask you will what kind of reaction does she have Ishii anaphylactic while I just say luckily yeah luckily luckily we don't I but also at the same time I worry that people think that because we said we're not sure that they won't take it seriously because obviously for reason obviously is life threatening but other types of reactions should still be taken justice seriously so I usually just say yes she's got a couple of EPI pen say you just to take seriously as well so I'm interested in you discover this five and a half yes yes yeah and before that there was nothing that indicated because you were breastfeeding exactly so I was exclusively breastfeeding and I was eating everything in my diet as well my next question was was anything that you're eating affecting or no initiatives only clear that we had was that she had quite early on Exmoor and it was pretty bad it wasn't just a little bit of drives it was I would say so usually mild moderate severe I would say it was the motor end and this was when she was that was a few months old yeah and I think that is only one of the indications something that you should be looking out for when thinking about allergies as well but the interesting thing with how was that and with treatment with appropriate treatment actually everything got better and again you know when you're thinking about allergy you might think that it's usually if things aren't getting any better when you would suspect to a little bit more so we had a clue I suppose I wasn't exactly yeah exactly that was because my husband has had ex-mayor quite badly when he was younger so we just thought oh well that's just so that was the thing that was interesting whether there is a history in either of your families of allergy or x amount so the razor so yes or no food allergies or drug allergies asthma and extra and Hay fever on my husband aw yeah so I kind of this when you were pregnant was there anything that you found different different about the foods you eat can no no yeah a everything have always eaten everything been fine with everything interesting how children are the first time they eat something ready somehow allergic I think the theory with early on Exmoor and allergies it's not necessarily that you've caused them but because there is a breakdown of the skin Barrett's will miss the skin kind of becomes a little bit more leaky so if they are then exposed to something in the air or you've touched or through food and then you touch them that's kind of the first presentation and into the bloodstream and then the body kind of gets a little bit confused and then produces all of these antibodies to and so that's the theory so in general any advices if it's early Ashley get on top of it straightaway and contributed really cleanly not that you'll be up to prevent it but it certainly an evolving thing so here we are five months you've now taken daughter and had all the test you've found this trick test went up hang on your GP about this yeah I know that's the thing I just thought about yeah I think I remember seeing skin prick test being done once maybe medical school in the Matala g clinic but it will suddenly yet very real and very different is always very different being on the other side as well definitely and weaning also you know doing it oh and then the other factor that kind of changed they've made it little bit more complicated was she was she was gaining but she wasn't gaining as much weight as she should have been and and then suddenly you think of all the things that you would try and add to fatten them up like cream and butter or anything like that and everything could think of she couldn't have so I think that was that was another obstacle to try and get over as well and it's all so new as well when you will your first time yes yes and kind of walking everything for the first time so it's not like you've weaned a baby before this new even though you might have known had some knowledge of things before leave you this is all brand new absolutely and I think that's the thing as well just in general it's total it's totally different and kind of a whole new appreciation for things like allergies while in just parenthood is in general and I definitely when I see it nations I think that I look at things in a slightly different way now so we'll though it's been a challenge I hope that actually benefits a lot of I practice now do you see a lot of patients with allergies and EXMOOR experts fairly fairly commonly food allergies again fairly common it's not necessarily a either people already had the diagnosis and they've kind of come in and want to talk about it or it's generally kind of babies in that kind of fast Munson that may be a little bit sickie in a bit uncomfortable and it's really trying to unpick whether they actually have allergies because I think say many people have kind of gone differing opinions of allergy and it's really easy for someone to say oh well is probably analogy so you should cut this out and trying to exclude this which can helpful sometimes but I think it's always trying to sit down and go through the history really really thoroughly because to just immediately exclude such a big room for example like even for the mom if she's breastfeeding I think has got quite a big implication so just trying to unpick things I think that's that's the difficulty sometimes with the diagnosis thoughts and once you've kind of got the diagnosis actually at least you feel like I can kind of do x. y. and said now but before if you're not quite sure be quite confusing I think for a lot of parents I remember my daughter has reaction to ekg when she was quite low as well and it was quite cheesed hives and oh she can eat normally and not really confuses me so how does that work so she wore she allergic and now.

"Child just has asthma you you can be excited if you have extra and you come into contact with pinups for the first time that's your first intake of peanuts on your body then can deal with it or it can react yeah and you don't know the topic people that are going to have hay fever and asked. Moore and Exmoor are the ones that risks. If you have a family that has that then you you need to be treating it properly because we don't react very well in this country. This was another news item this week out the artificial causing allergies they mean liquid soaps and the very unnatural soaps but they are stripping our skin of all of the oils and then causing exmoor and then potentially causing morale's so your baby's got to develop. It insisted estimate instead. We're just keeping it hype clean. We're cleaning all of the natural oils away then the skins coming ex-mayor Perron so there's a whole load of these body washers that say the Hypo allergenic but when you look on the list of ingredients they look identical to any of the other ones. They've all got sodium. Laura sulfate of these subpar harake were were all this nonsense love to look at what they really mean seven ingredients all of these things have all sorts of perfumes in there of course and heaven knows what other chemicals also I noticed when my son was having bad extra. We were trying various creams out on him and trying shampoos. It didn't seem to have any logical to which were the ones that he was okay with and which ones made it worse but an awful lot of them including the well known forty fives they made it worse good stuff that you'll find wind in the chemist is probably not great look around and find stuff on the Internet but is really nice natural products which are natural ingredients. What about good old bar of soap? I don't know much about never pass coulter wells an old fashioned out of our safeties better but then there's and really gorgeous kind of new wave of because coming so much more trendy now being natural and organic and there's actually products out there that are really really really nice and that people are GonNa hang on a minute yeah. We WanNa pull this crop eating now everywhere. We need to look at the things in in as well helping and ask and put it in a makeup as well. Everything is so much stop in London. especially babies are going to be yeah but you know one of the biggest ingredients in these artificial soaps and body washes is salt it why I think he's used to thicken it up enough. Can you to the united actually an expert but it's about the third or fourth ingredients on all this and the wandering drives your skin out then I have epsom souls yeah. I think you're supposed to stay in it for a real long time. Certainly twenty to thirty minutes in an EPSOM SALT is really good for my scarce.

Rosana Pin Alice rose ooh. Did you have time. I know I feel like we let down on this coming back to algae algae every we do ask our guests what they would do if they had a magic wand naked wave over the allergy world so this is our guest. This Week said I would probably legalize cannabis no well. I was at spectator. Sir Glenis sounds really interesting. She expand on that. I love left it there. It's costing. We've got to go back and talk to her. Walsh preached recently by CBD companies that are making products with cannabis oils. I noticed that the allergy show a few months ago. There were several stones flogging. CD treatments because it's the Miracle Cure for everything as we all know but clearly it's got a sort of Zeitgeist geist the moment everything because Canada I think is legalized cannabis massive cannabis farms all over Canada now legally making stuff and selling it and doing this and muscular dystrophy and lots of those conditions and I know people who rely on the problem at the moment is you don't have I. I wouldn't know how you would go about what was good and what wasn't out score. A good bit of cannabis have no idea ebbing look. We need somebody who knows tantalize. Thus within salad legalized teas. That was a teeth. We've got to go back and talk to her and find out what what is it about cannabis that can help people with allergies or asthma. I can imagine it helping our sma unless you smoke it. My only experience with cannabis was we had an old Arab bed which had come back from some Middle Eastern country and one of my parents travel or something and it had hemp mattress and we decided we'd had enough of this. We burnt the thing on a bonfire the two and we all got high stunning around the bone and laughing our heads off but it wasn't enough to my dad said I definitely stone burning burning that so so I smoked a bed anyway anyway. I think that brings us to the end up podcast. Wrap it up before we get into any trouble for the police knock on the door. They got to thank gladys for being a terrific guest the stuff that she talks about it. She doesn't mind blind. She knows about the subject on the next allergy today podcast. We're we're going to be talking. Syriac disease. What's ILIAC disease is similar to allergies but it's very different celebrities autoimmune condition where if people people have it they cannot eat wheat rye or barley and the only way to treat disease is to avoid those foods.

"Straightforward because what we're asking for at the end of the day. Just give me a list of ingredients and I'm I'm old enough and clever enough to work it out myself. It's it's surprising to me that such a massive brand we'll Caribbean wouldn't actually have to carry five billion passengers a year. You'd think they would have a central policy to help those passengers who struggle. I think some boats do. Let's find out and we'll we'll create. The top ten list of cruise companies well clearly. We need to take another cruise. What Royal Caribbean really should do is invite us all on as guests with an album okay then show us how coming Spain next time. I couldn't possibly say interesting thing when I got on our cruise ship I had really bad hay fever for the first twenty four hours and quite bad asna stay. I think there's something about acclimatizing. Is it to a very different environment but I was very confused because I think it was the worst hey free ride hard for awhile almost at sea exactly exactly terribly unfed of knit so I was clearly allergic to the ship mail something on the ship but after about twenty four hours cleared up on my Asmaa subsided and I was I was fine. Do you ever death because they could just be different. Dust it's just getting but it did get better and that was that's fine and I did find. Having a few cocktails helped enormously. Well someone who knows all about. Hay Fever and Roy -nology is glenna scrubbing. Who is our guest today. She is an honorary consultant physician analogy in Rinaldi at the royal national throat nose nails and honorary senior lecturer at Ucla University St College London and Quentin Astor why there is such an increase in people reporting allergies and what has changed because there's probably an association with Westernization. If you certainly look at rhinitis it was very much more common in western societies and non Western ones and `and as other societies become Westernized. The incidence religion and of allergies goes up so what do you mean by Western is is that it's probably not it's probably fast foods and it's probably over cleanliness as well and it may well relate. Torah microbiome to the bacteria that we carry with us on our skin and probably particularly in our God and this this is happened what over the last forty games began property in the nineteen fifties and there was a steady increase since then in good UK and Europe a now. It's happening in India China and other parts of the world and do you have any pet. Theories is is to what specifically it might be. No I think I don't think I can tell you it's you so you need more lactobacillus ram doses or that particularly but you you do need the right bacterial flora in your gut in order to get your immune system work in the correct direction and you got the wrong ones the immune system overreacts and gives you an IGA hi judy reaction or gives you auto immunity and is processed foods that are changing so I suspect that it's it's partly any chemicals and food processing lack of bacteria in the dire lack of real real food and also lack a bacterial contact in the home kids who grow up in a house with a dog less likely to be allergic second and third less likely to be allergic from the first child and the family because I wanted to go out and get dirty and come back and that's all I'm fifty and I'm the most allergic interest trusted me. Oh you're buying the trend. What I noticed now is that there is an increase in foods with for me allergens in them. We actually don't notice PS is the big one at the moment is being used. I think to make food gluten free. Yes yes the lawsuit free food but that's actually now catching the out more times times when I'd like really how about the reactions have changed over time. Ed used to be very active. I would vote during the clean. Come out in hives lives now. It just feels like nausea that runs through my body. Okay overpaid about twenty four hours can you cakes heavily caught dead not now. I can't cook tag so neither cook and so something brushed with egg. I'M GONNA get caught half occasionally but like a lot of people. Are you end up with the sixth sense. Yes typically when you talk to a waiter new. Ask Them and you just know whether they're not telling the truth. That's not the way to live have you life should be after an EPI pen well. I'm being swayed co host excellent excellent but will end up doing good good but things have changed because there are a lot more treatments L. which weren't available when I was going up no van. Dillen is one that comes to mind cool. Perhaps the thing that's made most difference is the use of inhaled corticosteroids and then of nasal topical corticosteroids steroids and we have Harry Moro Brown to thank for that WHO's an Englishman they started doing some trials looking first of all oral corticosteroid whether that worked worked in asthma and the trial was was negative but Harry who was smart looked very carefully at his own patients and he noticed that the ones who did respond had ear cinefils in their sputum and the ones who didn't respond didn't respond probably they didn't have asthma or chronic bronchitis so so oral corticosteroids got onto the agenda and then the same thing happened with corticosteroids. I think it was Beecham's. We're going to dump it because is it didn't work but again. They haven't looked to their patients carefully enough. They haven't stratified them. I want you to look at the ones who Airsu- NFL's they respond very beautifully inhaled corticosteroids and they have saved lives people died a lot from us so they reduce mortality that reduce morbidity and a now remarkably safe and if you've gone chronic asthma you need to take your inhaled corticosteroid every single day without fail. That's a becker tight or something. That's right. Yes these days. People will have combination therapy which is also new. That's the combination of the steroid with long acting beater agonise cut law acting Salbutamol that combination is very effective indeed particularly when patients realize after taking it that they feel l. Better that makes them much more to take because with anything taken regularly. It's hard to get patients to to with salvageable. Do you become an annuity needed. There are certain people who have a particular genetic background who do for them regular. Saul beautiful is not a good thing. It's a thing in the B. Two agonists receptor and they should not be taking regular beautiful associated uh-huh deterioration for them. The optimal is better used. Intermittently the law not me. I'm not sure that they have the same problems so it was interesting. My brother my late brother my chronic yes yeah and he was a very early user events lane and what I noticed was that he would just keep increasing the dose yeah yeah and I became aware that's also became a bit of a trump yeah for all the problem. Is that what it does is is to relax the smooth muscle that surround the bronchitis and you feel the effect and you feel better but it is not only about smooth muscle constriction. It's it's about inflammation of the lining of the breathing tube swelling of the whole lining ventilation does nothing for that so if you keep on using vented tum and you're going to get into serious problems with a swollen lining the inhaled corticosteroids deal with inflammation so what you really should do issues if you're on the to use in. Hell corticosteroid regularly and the vent and him when you need it. Are we just treating the symptoms not treat in I think into an extent we all and I am very pro doing immunotherapy which is a way of exposing the body to the Allergen. which did you react in such a way? The reaction is gradually altered now. It's a long term process. It needs somebody like an allergist. We're minorities to make the right diagnosis and choose the right Allergen and then it can be administered these days. It's usually either by injection. under the tongue other ways are being explored people looking at doing it directly into lymph nodes but nearly always means three years of treatment and does it like once you loss. Taylor once you've had those three years you can usually stop and and you get prolonged benefit now the length of time varies for injection it could be many years for we don't have the data for sub lingual. We have data for two years. Here's often stopping us. Some people do slide back into symptoms again but they can just have another course of sub lingual and that will take it while you're having the treatment what side effects other the for suppling all the major side effects local. They usually happen at the start of treatment. Your mouth tingles itches your throat throat me slightly which is why the first dose needs to be taken under supervision often that you can take your home you take it every single day and slowly Only it persuade your immune system. This is this is food. This is homeless is not something you need to react to. It's better to keep on doing it because apparently only two years is not enough. You need three is to get the full benefit so it's expensive. There's evidence that it can prevent the slide lied from rhinitis staff and that's a really important thing to do and I think that would be worth paying for so I didn't know there was a connection between direct connection between hayfever deteriorating into Osma. Yes I is evidence that if you've got allergic rhinitis your three or four times more likely to get aspect and somebody who hasn't gotten rhinitis and you can also show very easily if you have allergic rhinitis and you you probably allergens which seven the knows the nose reacts but if you take a little biopsy from the Bronco the bronchitis also reacting so the a hold of the respiratory tract has ripple effect when you drop allergen into any one part of it because it works the other way round as well so this is why you should always be protecting the knows enough sma and otherwise asthma worse well. F- that was a lot of information that much of which I must admit I wasn't quite Shaw Shaw how to Digest. I found her utterly fascinating to talk to. I really enjoyed the way she went into the detail. Yes a lot of it. I was running running to keep up. I just got so much out of that that I'd never heard before and she made so much sense and I think the thing about Glenis is that she's one of those very imposing people who you trust immediately and that connection between Hay fever and asthma which I'd never heard explained like that before actually explained very simply and convincingly and allergies alledged the connection between allergies asthma. She gets it you have had when I had to soy allergy diagnosed. I was on asthma medication and it wasn't working. The Sawyer was causing me asper but no one made that connection so because it was a different reaction to my allergies. I didn't think that our food just give me asthma so it didn't get diagnosed and then and I was cutting back on all my asthma medication is interesting because the asthma people I go to see weren't connected to the skins all the algae special they need to link up Morton tape and then asked Moore is the one where is most fatal it'd be more people die from Asmara but then I wonder whether some of those are triggered by analogy and it's just not been noted down with the person didn't know they had an allergy trigger and it would just be noted down as asthma reaction explains why when I got on the cruise I had hay fever and asthma because the two are linked. Thank you Glenis so let's talk about skin barrier cream even food allergies. I mean I think they're finally realizing that children when they have their first reaction. They shouldn't be reacting allergic to something I ate it. Usually you have a desensitization desensitization and then the next time you eat it. You get that worsening reaction but these babies reaction the first time they food and it's what they now think he's through their skin so eskin barrier when they have extra is compromised and they're being sensitized through that skin barrier so if you treat that properly rather than just telling parents you your.

"allergy" Discussed on The Allergy Today Podcast
"My name is Alice rose and I've got no allergies ever but but my co host Ruth Holroyd on the other hand has got loads. Yes local lots of allergies. I did count them. There's about twenty five but my life threatening allergies aren't to nuts and dairy so allergic to soy and wait I also have exmoor asthma and hay fever and write blog called allergy dot com and we have quentin how it got allergies as well mine are food allergies eggs fish nuts and peas and I grew up with x amount and asthma so between us on our new allergy today podcast. We're going to be exploring the allergies and above all trying to normalize it so that allergies are not seen as something that people refuse to understand there is something that people can accept just like everything else in life life and help those of us who've got allergies to deal with it properly and this is the sort of thing you are going to hear liles. You had to eat everything at the same thing actually didn't change my. I was forced to eat peanuts in the salad alarm member at school being told you have to hear that fish cake and saying this is the age of five or six. I can't do that. I can't do those. I'm allergic to fish in the teacher. You will eat it you elite it and what happened to you. Quinton soy at it and then I vomited all over her shoes me me too. Well actually quite proud. I was really Geeky school about you but certainly for me that raised my status by a man announcer being sick the ladies favorites exactly what happened to me after six peanuts on the horrible salad was a proud moment. I'm just like sitting here thinking com. Leave the duck but that wouldn't happen now I was you don't have any allergies you can anything. I can't sorry to say but I can't so I'm sitting here and it's interesting listing now because I have in the past chose. Take things out of my diet for various. Reasons of my facility is something that I've research a lot about so I stuck to move uh-huh militant kind of Doi and I did take out dairy and I sometimes Qatar read me or so I kind of had the experience of going to restaurants and saying I I can't have this icon about and I was really strict about it. Just kind of think we'll do. You really need to be doing that well. I've done my research. I've spoken to nutritionist. This is what I'm choosing to do and I just need support in that so it's coming in from from a completely different point of view isn't it and I I. I'm lucky that I do have the choice in what I eat. Food conceive as is what we want. We want people to be able to a understand so it's not just about the food industry labeling. It's also people with food issues understanding what the issues it was all an understanding well enough to be able to read ingredients lists and get the right information is at the because I hate said the still awful lot of ignorance out that I find quite it's scary. The number of people I come across with potentially quite serious food Allah Jason. Why she really haven't got a clue. What will say oh. I did read need carry my opinion. I've been dived as speedo allergy audited by yes you do. The story is that they got to the airports and they went what to press him on Jay. Natasha picked up a pet and she looked at all have favorite ingredients in it and Bethany Look Tara. My husband looked at it and yet it looks fine she can have that she went on the plane very soon after that she had an itchy throat and she took. Periton for that and within about half an hour she had massive hives all over her body she wasn't feeling well and she asked her father to give her an EPI pen injection which didn't work and then had to get out of the second mom and everything just deteriorated very quickly from there when they landed the paramedics came on and they try try to resuscitate her for about another forty minutes did come back with the defibrillator but it was so weak by then that it kind of faded and then it it came back again and then it faded and that's really when when it was cut traffic she had complete brain damage in organ failure by then minefield isn't it yes. I'm worried about the needle issue because I'm not a big person in my thigh muscle to fashion adept is quite big so the normal needles go there but I know where to inject lower down on my on my leg with those pence it will get through that is an issue for women is an issue. It is an issue because people don't realize the all of these auto injectors were developed for young men in I think in the Vietnam the needles were designed to go into the FIS of young fit men with very little adipose tissue but women even skinny women have much fatter is to get through the flesh and me l. e. light all whatever whatever it is to get into the muscle is much more difficult so quite often the the standard pens the APP pens checks. The needle is just literally not long enough so oral corticosteroids got onto the agenda and then the same thing happened with an hordic steroids. I think it was Beecham's. We're going to dump it because it didn't work but again they haven't looked at their patients carefully enough move. They haven't stratified them once you don't get the ones who Airsu- NFL's they respond very beautifully to inhale according hysteri- and they have saved lives uh-huh people died a lot from us they reduce mortality that reduce morbidity and they are remarkably safe Quinson Anthony. How's your week been. It's been quite warm this week in the weather has been changing and my smiles come back and I haven't had asthma where of how to use an inhaler for probably a couple of years I used to have it very badly as a child and then in my twenty s quite badly. I went to a doctor because I was getting quite bad. He put me on Ventolin in Ireland and that was fine that helps but then you end up using it as a crutch and I was concerned that it wasn't really getting any better was really controlling it and this doctor taught me relaxation accession techniques and explain that a lot of it is about stress particularly wants an attack starts you start this kind of vicious cycle of stress which induces more of it and that was the most valuable half an hour. I've ever spent with a medic. That's really interesting. You just recognize it's beginning to build and that's when you stop take a affirmative action and actually you'll find yourself reducing the reliance on ventilation and for twenty five years he was absolutely they will develop more more allergies because we're not fixing the reason why the body's reacting to certain foods often. That's a good issue often from a medical standpoint you be talking more more about leaky gut where the is starting the lining is starting to break down food particles passing into the bloodstream foods not much the bloodstream it creates an immune response and we get allergies this and I've got clients to aback eating eggs back eating things where they have to. They had to use an EPI pen with so. It's absolutely amazing. Say I remember why I had was a file of adrenaline and a syringe which was kind of scared. I'd never have used that. When I first got told I I had an allergy and they gave me this adrenaline. The nurse opened her. She was a nurse in a blue year. Nurse's uniform she opened up her dress and she was a big lady with rolls of fat and I was probably ten horrified. I haven't seen anyone naked. Let alone a fat person naked and the typical kid. I was just like what she's you doing and she just literally opened address and demonstrate how to inject into the rolls of fat. I was absolutely disgusted by this and my mom was a bit confused which is not the away. You should administer agenda in any way so that's what happened to my mom. This is really important. We need to ensure the I'm never doing that. I'm not doing that in future podcasts. We'll talk about epipens. We should do a whole thing on that. Maybe I should be at some point. We'll do it like yeah we do. You need to learn how to use your non existent medication in happy with the milk and chips always. GonNa work here probably well well. It's really crater you. Manage in such different ways is really just call nine hundred nine and I dog again terrifying. You call nine nine nine. I call just eat and we frequently being asked by people for free from PS from Lagumdzija free from tomatoes yet. It's bit of a problem I think for many people who looking for free from products they need to avoid pollution dairy and be an tomato than they do have a problem and unfortunately multiple allergens uh-huh allergies are becoming more and more prevalent so much more sensitive to our environments than we realize. Aren't we even if you don't have allergies those things that are going on which you you know not just the weather but everything in your environment everything written with dachshunds and stubborn. Is that which we're learning so much about now. I think there are certain beers that I can't drink trink because they give Maxima. Hey why don't know why I think it's either because of what they use to clarify them or something in for example as a Chinese beer sang. It's a lovely beer but it makes me tight chester interesting to see the ingredients that could be chemical echo one. That's the problem senator set a chemicals which will spark asthmatic attacks by its bit research. That's worth worth doing time researching a lot of beers. You're legit to private research google. I think we were thinking of especially Komo quantify so two percent chance that may contain nuts or one percent chance that would not be more meaningful it cut bay then it might be a two percent chance on one day. I am a ten percent chance on another depending on what they're producing and you might also be make so you might get two percent pro mex with a ten percent product so then you've got Ta Schwartz so the answer is the accuracy of information I think around allergens what is becoming clear era is that the accuracy is vital. We went for lunch last time. We got together. Didn't we went lunch and you off your source to not be be on it but logic needed. Sam Logic and it came in a pot on the play and I felt so indignant on your behalf. I was like she's allergic. Putting on the places he was on the side but you know I just think thought kind of thing is exactly the sort of thing that we could try and really wave this flag about just look. It's really not rocket science. If someone says to you they're allergic. Tell the kitchen not to put the play like just just I understand why that's difficult. I do struggle to understand why they didn't get it because it's so prominent in the news now. You can't not know that people die from allergies so why restaurants find it so hard to take seriously. Have this fear that if I make too much of a fuss my food will go back into the kitchen on the shell spit on it but I'm not allergic to spare yeah but that's not happening on my food. Yeah that would be okay. Okay we have come on. You can spit the foods. I've been eating nuts allergic to coming soon anyway..
