"Listeners it's mike schneider and i'm brett molina and welcome back to talking tech. As with many other events canceled due to the covid nineteen pandemic. there is no south by south west festival in austin texas. This year. That is true. But there's a virtual south by southwest going on online through saturday march twentieth. And i got a chance to participate. Let me tell you a little bit about it. I've been scheduled to moderate a panel last year gaming for good but the festival got cancelled entirely when we knew there was going to be a virtual festival this year the company that sponsored the panel skills decided to go ahead and do it so we recorded our discussion over zoom in late february and it was really enlightening and very made me very hopeful about things. Here there's a story. On tech usa today dot com. You can read that if you want. If you really wanna watch the panel and do all the other fun things at south by southwest. Has you can still buy a ticket to the festival. There's a link in my story for that too. But here's the basics. I learned from from the panel. The panelists we had three of them. there's a program called gamers outreach that provides video game carts that means it has like a secure tv and a game console on. It's it's either hook to wireless or however they do in the hospital in two hundred thirty children's hospitals around the us the founder zach. Weigel began the program when he was a high schooler halo tournament. The got cancelled He'd organiz the tournament but public safety official voice concerns about the high school cafeteria being used for a hobby. That was quote corrupting the minds of america's youth in quote. The guy said so to show the gamers from it meant well the next year weigel try it again and raise money for a local children's hospital with that resulting tournament part of that he learned. The hospitals often have trouble keeping kids occupied when they're recovering from treatment in their rooms so that led him to begin having online fundraising to get these. You know cards game carts into hospitals all over the country if you wanna get involved gamers outreach as gamers forgiving event online this weekend and there's a lincoln my story or you can go to gamers forgiving dot org also this weekend skills which is spelled s. k. i. l. l. z has a gaming for good tournament to benefit the american red cross.

US cancer deaths hit ‘single-year record drop,’ American Cancer Society says

"We have some promising news in the fight against cancer. Researchers now say they're seeing a record decline in cancer deaths here in the us. New data from the american cancer society shows between twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen. The death rate fell two point four percent. That's the biggest drop ever. So what's behind this. Well researchers say it's largely because fewer people are getting and dying from lung cancer since fewer people are smoking and beyond that the american cancer society says treatment for cancer in general is getting better. New drugs are improving survival. Rates plus radiation and surgery. Getting more and more precise. We also have better diagnosis these days.

Interview With Dr. Jason Fung

"Jason. Welcome back to the podcast. It's great to have you on paul. Thanks for having great to be here. We're gonna have a great discussion today. I really loved the new book. The cancer code. And i gotta admit when i dug into the book. It was really what i expected. I was thinking would be more along the lines of fasting. How that could help prevent maybe treat cancer given your background fasting but it was so much more than that. I mean that would have been a great book but this goes really deep into cancer and the evolution of our thinking of cancer over so many years so congrats. I really enjoyed this. Oh thank you very much. And i think that's sort of when i started looking at the issue of cancer. That was sort of how i got into it. Which is why you know most people. I would think think it's going to be about all about sort of fasting and nutrition and cancer but as done sort of deeper into the topic of cancer. There's just so much else going on because clearly cancer is a much more. Broad problem than just attrition because we know things like smoking for example has nothing to do with nutrition. What you eat if you smoke your risk of cancer just goes way way up saying with the best for example. You've exposed as fast as it doesn't really matter what you eat. You're you're great risk of developing a museum which is the type of lung cancer. So that's sort of while it was sort of how got into it as it developed as looking through it more became More and more the question which is never really answered. I think that is really important. Is the sort of how we think about what this problem really is. That is what is cancer. And that's i think one of the greatest remaining medical mysteries because most of these other diseases that we face we sort of know what's causing that. So even when we get a new virus like poof nineteen for example within a few months. We've got this virus like look you know it's still kicking our bod but we've sequenced. We figured it out. It's this is the virus. This is the sequence you know. The dna sequence. This is how it gets in. We've said okay it's the ace two receptors. You know you get at the site of storms. We know so much about it. Even within six months of this sort of brand new disease coming up which has greatest fascinating. Yeah something like hiv. For example it took us years to figure out the actual virus going from age hiv to sort of treatment whereas now you know thirty forty years down the line. We figured out what this virus looks like. We figured out know where detaches we figure so much. Stop so quickly but the problem is that with cancer. What is this disease. Such a strange disease because it's a common disease. It's the second biggest killer of americans yet. If you were to ask the question of what is this disease. People have no idea. Most experts have no idea like you ask the american cancer society and it says well. It's a disease of genetic mutations and that's not really correct because if it was simply a matter of genetics that is You know just bad luck genetically then. Why does environment play such a huge role in this genetic disease. That is if you have a disease. Such as cystic fibrosis sickle cell anemia. All these genetic diseases they passed on sort of mother to child or they have a significantly higher risk in we can identify the genes that are associated with it on the other hand. It doesn't matter if you're japanese if you're african if occasion If you smoke you're much more likely to get lung cancer. So it's not a genetic disease in that sense yet. People have been saying it's genetic disease donate disease and the problem with that. Is that if you don't understand what causes it. Your research sort of goes in the wrong direction that is looking for these genetic mutations and they progress in cancer has really slowed to a halt. Like if you think about how many genetic sort of tours for cancer we have. It's very very few the number of medications that makes a difference to cancer. You can count on one hand in most of those were developed in the early part of the sort of late nineties early two thousands rates with that was twenty years ago and whereas all these great genetic cures for cancer. We just don't see them in because it's not nearly a genetic disease and we have to sort of understand further and this is this is really an exploration of how the way we think about cancer has changed over the last little bit because there's been a huge paradigm shift from being a genetic disease tomorrow logical evolutionary disease which has huge implications for treatment.

"We want to talk about early detection and treatment and such, so why don't we start with the situation? With breast cancer, which the prevalence what of the statistics? Yes, definitely. You know, we're right in the middle of October, and everyone recognizes this month as breast cancer Awareness Month and the American Cancer Society estimates that 19,900 paces and 3040 deaths due to female breast cancer are inspected in Florida this year alone, so you know it continues to happen, and many people are affected by this disease. So you want, you know, to always encouraged screenings and prevention measures that we can take to prevent this disease. And if we are diagnosed, you know to be there early. And that way we can get treatment as needed. This one So the first thing is to go ahead and get that mammogram And obviously we want to remind women to do that. But why don't you speak also to the reasons why women don't go ahead and get your mammogram? This. There might be. You know, some fear. Maybe some at you know some access issues. Maybe people might think there's no. You know, where should I go? I don't have health insurance. I don't have a family history, so I don't need to get one. There might be many, many reasons that people do not or the fear of, you know, screening is uncomfortable. But But again, we should, you know, talk with healthcare provider. There are reasons out there in the community that can help. This is well and Individually, you know, Go and get your men in a van talk..

Processed Meat: How Much Is too Much?

The Nutrition Diva's Quick and Dirty Tips for Eating Well and Feeling Fabulous

Processed Meat: How Much Is too Much?

"Today we're talking about cross to meet. What exactly do we consider to be processed meats? What are the concerns with them? How much is too much you know virtually all of the healthy eating guidelines everything from the dietary guidelines for Americans to the recommendations put out by the World Health Organization the American Cancer Society, and the American heart. Association. They all include some sort of recommendation to limit your intake of cross meet. But there's a lot of confusion about what counts as processed meat. I mean Ham Bacon Pepperoni and hotdogs those are generally included in that category. But what about uncured bacon or hot dogs that have no nitrites added what about the sliced Turkey or roast beef from the Deli counter are they processed and what exactly is it about processed meat that makes it a potential problem? Is it just about the nitrites is sodium saturated fat all of the above. I think there's also some understandable confusion about what exactly it means to limit your consumption is one serving a week too much one serving a month is any amount safe? Kathleen Zalman is a registered. Dietitian who other things served for many years as the director of nutrition for the Website Web md she recently wrote a white paper for the North American. Meat Institute addressing some of these questions and concerns about processed meats, and then she sat down with me later to discuss this further. So I, what exactly is the definition of a processed meat? As Kathleen explains in her white paper minimally processed meat is the correct term for raw uncooked meat products that have been minimally altered such as grinding or cutting to create familiar cuts like strip steaks or pork chops. No additives or preservatives are used. It's simply processed from the whole animal into edible portions. You see in the grocery store and then she goes on to say further processed is the term used for meat and poultry that has been transformed through salting curing fermentation, smoking cooking battering breading, or the addition of ingredients to enhance flavor or improve preservation and safety examples include hotdogs, Ham sausages, corned beef lunch, meat, Bacon or beef Jerky as well as canned meat and meat based preparations. So you see the problem here, most of us would not call a piece of raw chicken or pork processed meat but in the meat industry, these are considered processed meats for that matter I think most of us would not put a can of tuna into the same category as hot dogs or corned beef, and yet in the meat industry these are all further processed meats. The way processed meat is defined in research studies is also fuzzy and very inconsistent, but it does a line more with the meat industry's definition of further processed. But nomenclature, aside, it's important to note that processing serves some useful functions such as inhibiting the growth of dangerous pathogens, increasing food safety and extending shelf life.

Thank you for having me. So what kind of work is funded by events like this? Oh, can't all of cancer research everything from basic science like myself studying, you know models of cancer in the laboratory and two translational medicine where clinical work and getting drugs into the clinic and all kinds of career levels from early career scientists later career, so it's everything is funded by places like American Cancer Society. This has been such a strange year. How is covert affected fundraising? So, um, I mean, as you can imagine, we're living an unprecedented times. You know, Cancer does not stop because Kobe it is so big funding agencies like the FBI and I age, you know, Department of Defense is a big funding of cancer research in our tournament administration have cut Cancer funding and then as well as smaller and finding agencies like American Cancer Society, You know, it's all been hurt, and it was already competitive to get funding and it's just been super competitive, and he imagine all of our lives and research has been on hold because we're not in the lab we have to, you know, adhere to all these Safety precaution to be in laboratories together and do the research to actually, you know, go forward. It's it's pretty. It's pretty crazy. That was my next question is how specifically has your work been impacted by bike over? Tremendously tremendously. So it is. You know, we were out of the lab for many months. That put back a lot of research, you know, especially when you work on model system that you have to, you know, take care of cells are animals every day, and so a lot of people's research went You know, it was we've had a lot of setbacks. Um, we got back into the lab things to Governor Newsome, who declared and made that you know, biomedical research was essential. So we were allowed to, you know, get back to get getting things in going again. But, yeah, it's been really tough. And you know, we have strict precautions to be in the lab, You know, screening That we do at our institute and some Yes. So if we do it because we have to do it, right? That's exactly right. OK, so I'm going to talk about the fundraiser. It's San Diego, making strides against cancer. The event is October 18th. It's a pink and go seek socially distance. Scavenger hunt.

Can you give us a general sense of how much of an impact that researches made over the past few decades? Not sure. Certainly groundbreaking. Research is a big part of what we dio as the American Cancer Society and a lot of what happens with lots of other partners across the country.

Another thing I would say is the cancer um Is a disease that can affect everybody, But it's not something that affects everybody equally, and that remains another big challenge for us When we think about health equity and.

"1 800 number with Councillors on the other end of the phone that can answer in questions and help people navigate through what's happening to them and their bodies and their families. And it's equally more important right now during covert 19 because they're able to provide cancer patients with scientific information about what they should do and how they can seek out treatment. During this really scary time. They also provide support to care covers and again. The main thrust of what they do is provide early states research so that we can end breast cancer Hopefully in our lifetime. What have you witnessed as some of the challenges that have really popped up over the past couple of months as we're dealing with this corona virus pandemic when it comes to the work the American cancer Society is doing or people who were dealing with cancer right now. That's a great question, Ryan. I mean, if you can imagine the spring and the summer has looked very different from a fundraising perspective for all of these, but also for the American Cancer Society. We have the pause a lot of fundraising activities throughout that this time frames the last six months or so, and it's really Created a devastating drop and our funds available for research and for patient support programs and finally for education about breast cancer as well. Um we've also seen a big drop in research related to breast cancer because last have had the halt their work and academic institutions have been closed and opened and closed it open. And there's just a real change in kind of the environment around research, and so we have just seen a huge difference and the our ability to raise funds for this important work. We've also seen cancer patients really struggle with what they should do. Imagine getting a diagnosis of cancer at this time. It's already scary enough with covert 19 in the world, and a lot of patients are concerned about their access Tio treatments as well as what they should do what's safe to do right now. And so we've seen a real difference in an uptick in our phone calls around those questions. And last year alone, the 800 number fielded over 1.4 million calls from concerned patients and caregivers. You can imagine that support is needed now more than ever.

"To the American Cancer Society so you can call us at 6516411071 Okay, so so Let's talk about what a lot of people's fear is. And that is I've had so many people say I'm scared to talk to another loan officer because I'm afraid that if they pull my credit again, My score will go down. Let's talk to people about what the reality of that situation is. The reality is her federal law. The consumer has the right to shop and as long as they're not having their score pulled by 345 different lenders at one time. And as long as they're having a pulled within a 45 day period, it has no negative, stepped on credit at all. Okay, so that is called What in your industry, a softball? I weaken Do what's called a soft pool, and we could do with called a hard pull. What's the difference between the South Pole and a hard pole? A soft coal is you're only getting one of the bureau's were versus the hard You're getting all three. Unfortunately with a whole softball doesn't tell. Ah good mortgage loan officer doesn't give them the full picture. It gives them a partial picture. And sometimes when we pull credit will see an anomaly such as the following high score 7 49 then the middle scores of 6 49 in the low score. It's six. 6 23 and you might go well. How can that other credit report be so high or that bureau be so high? Let's just say it's a credit union. They only report one bureau. And they reported three trade lines that bureau causing that credit score to be a 7 49 Well, if you tell me your 7 49 and I get a 6 49 there's a major difference between what kind of programs are gonna be offered what interest rates are. Because understand all mortgage lenders are going to use all three scores and we use the middle score. And that is directly related program and interest rates. Okay, so if some if somebody's getting information from let's just say a new loan officer, and they they have the question to that loan officer Are you going to hard pull or soft? Pull me and they tell them we're going to softball. You don't worry about it. No problem. In your opinion. Is that a problem? No, It's not a problem, okay, but that somebody if somebody calls me and they're wanting a second opinion, I'll ask him for their score. I can literally put together the numbers the weight the program If you tell me what you're smelling score Now That doesn't mean you're going to qualify, But at least I can put together a very, very competitive quote until the consumer Are you getting a good deal or not? All right, you don't have to call credit in order to get a quote. Now. How good is the quote while the quotas on Lee as good as the documentation Okay, so basically to dio just Ah, like kind of over the net kind of situation. You say that you could do that, but it's based on just verbal. But to do your job, The best possible way would be for you to pull it and get all three score so that you can actually speak to them intelligently about it. Correct, corrupt, corrupt and what I'll tell the client is okay here. I'm providing what's called a Michael quote. Right now. This is what I think it looks like. This is what I think The program is and normally nine times out of 10 on beating the competition where I have a better program from the consumer. And then the consumer says Okay, well, go ahead. All my credit. 95% of my clients don't have a problem with me pulling credit. I mean, unless you've got you know multiple multiple credit enquiries within the last 90 days on credit. It's not going to hurt your score, but that's that's a conversation I have with the consumer at that specific time on point, Okay? Well, we always encourage people to be part of the red hot real estate show. You can call us a 6516411071 So, producer, Sonny, I believe we have somebody on hold. Is that correct? Yes, it is. Sarah. She's a first time home owner. And she has a question about looking for town homes and condos. I believe they're thank you, son. Thank you, Sonic. Correct. Thank you for calling. Sara. What's your question for Mimi and Phil? My question is, I am a first time home owner and a teacher and wanting to find a stone from our condo in Ah! Like Dinah Richfield, Bloomington area once out there, and what is the trend or what do you see coming for the rest of the year? That's a great question, you know, without actually sitting down and looking at what's happening in those three different cities that you mentioned, we would have to go back to the MLS. And look that up for you. But it would take literally five minutes for me to be able to send you that, Sarah kind of what are you? What information? Are you looking for? Just availability like How fast selling? Yeah, I did get my Um, credit score poles and then Not authorized for a certain amount of money way higher than I would ever hang on. DH Just wandering are You believe that the town home market is going to come down a bit because I find that found homes are being sold for like 30,000 more than they were sold a year or two years ago there up on the market, but People are wanting 20 to 30,000 more. Yeah, you know, that's exactly what we are seeing in in all categories of homes, townhomes, condos, single family acreage the whole deal because they just don't have enough inventory like we were talking about in the first segment. Sarah. Only 1.9 months of inventory and the whole metro area And so if nobody else listed a house and then in the next little bit in 1.9 months now there would be no houses for sale. Does that make sense? So that is why it's supply and demand. The demand is so high and especially with people trying to take advantage of low interest rates, right, Phil Exactly. And you know one of the things that I hear from you, Sarah is your first time Homebuyer. Have you been offered first time Homebuyer programs Have you been offered homes for heroes? Because you fall into that specific category. Being a teacher. Have you been offered down payment assistance should you need it? Yeah, None of that. Actually, I'm I'm like I always say I'm on the baby steps like it's a big deal for me to even say that I'm looking for our home, but I'm so tired of pain rent. You know what? Sarah, We work with a lot of teachers. And we loved our teachers s o. I would suggest that we talk after the show and that we connect you with Phil so that he can show you all the different programs that he has And he's got a plethora of programs and Sarah Congratulations on starting this journey because I agree with what you said. Like the first time I bought my first tone, how it was like this is a big deal for me to even start asking these questions. So thank you for being brave and actually going. I'm gonna at least get the information so I could make a wise decision. Right, then we love that. So thank you so much for picking up the phone because if you had the question there's a lot of listeners also do right, Sarah Sahni. I'm pretty sure got your information. We'll make sure everybody follows up with you soon. Great. Thank you so much. Thank you. Good luck. Yeah, that's so exciting, right? We love for our first time home, and that is harder going. Okay? I'm going to start this whole thing and and, you know, I know, neither you, me or Phil have a crystal ball. But You're making your best. You know your best professional suggestion by going, you know, with the way the interest rates are on the way that supply is right now, The likelihood of things dropping probably isn't going to happen, But we don't know so when, when we're just hovering just under the $300,000 median home price in the Metro 300,000. If somebody would have said that to me when I was a first time Homebuyer, I would have passed out right? Not even lion. So it is nothing to sneeze at. We are not arrogant, right and think that that this is just nothing agree. You know it's a big deal, and we recognise that so Bravo for people to step up to the plate. Does the prices we as faras?.

Coronavirus and Cancer Patients

"Jen. We've talked a lot about how the hospitals have been inundated with Kovic nineteen patients and so so many people across the country or having to postpone routine treatments among them cancer patients and survivors. We know I know how scary it is. Just to live with that diagnosis. But imagine doing that during these times. There is a huge impact every year in this country about one point. Eight million Americans are diagnosed with cancer. So that is a huge number of people. We also know that early. On in this pandemic the American Cancer Society put out a statement recommending that all routine cancer screenings be temporarily postponed. Which of course can trigger a lot of fear and anxiety for people and as a result of that we also know now that people who have already been diagnosed with cancer are now facing delays in their treatment. So it's a stressful time both medically and psychological. I mean for people who are fighting cancer. What can they expect to face right now? Well I think we have to understand that. There's a lot we still have to learn about. How cancer and Kovic nineteen or this corona virus indirect from already very limited published preliminary data. That comes out of China. It does appear that people with cancer face a higher risk of death than people without cancer. The risk was seven point six percent for people with cancer versus one point four percent of someone without any pre existing medical condition. We also think that if someone who is in the process of having treatment for cancer becomes sick with cove nineteen that we have to prioritize. And it's probably a better idea for the cancer treatment to be put on hold to just manage the corona virus or Cova Nineteen because cancer treatments can weaken the immune system in and of themselves. So we don't want to add salt to the wound. And what don't we know right now. About how covert one thousand nine affects cancer patients? There's still a lot to learn. Amy I mean first of all. We don't know how this pandemic will play out in terms of affecting new diagnosis of cancer in this country. We also don't know if the pandemic will have an effect on mortality rates or death rates either because of delay in treatment for people who already have cancer or because they're getting sicker with Cova one thousand nine and we also don't know how different types of cancer may interact with Kovic nineteen so for example. We don't know if someone battling breast cancer will fare differently with exposure or disease of corona virus versus someone. Let's say with colorectal cancer. There's still a lot of data that needs to be collected and then studied

"Night so just talking a few minutes ago about the problems with what it costs at a hospital nobody knows an after the fact he had all those crazy bills but let's talk about something good about medicine there was a report from the American cancer society there was sorry about the decline M. deaths from cancers in the United States and it shows the declining death rates over one generation and then just over the last couple years for several major cancers ones that take out more of us than like just about anything else and I want to tell you the transcript this trends our friend number one the cancer that kills the most men and women is lung cancer and the number of people dying from it in just one generation has declined precipitously I I don't know there's been an improvement like that with any other illness in such a short period of time I can't think of anything and reason number one he is the reduction in the number of people who smoke we're down to thirteen percent of Americans who smoke if you're one of that thirteen percent of American adults who smoke there should be something you really think about because cause and effect is clear is could be there are people who get lung cancer never smoked but the big problem is for people who smoke in addition to the improvement from that there's been great improvement and survivability of lung cancer because of the fact that people who have early detection of what starts off as a symptom was cancer have a very high chance of survival those who are never checked out don't go to the doctor all that great risk and obviously if you smoke or have smoked you should make this a priority in your life because you can take something that could be a death sentence they make it just a bump in the road second colon cancer a lot of people don't have a regular medical professional they go to they're not on a cycle of having a colonoscopy they're not that bad they can save your life early detection is everything with colon cancer and the death rates from it because of an increased number of people being screen is way down but guess what the tally rate is fifty percent higher in men than women why because men don't like to go to the doctor women are better at taking care of themselves and so the survival rate with colon cancer much much higher with women and the improvement has been great for both men and women but the survival rate is much much better with women just because Joseph colonoscopy every ten years when you're fifty or older unless there's a family history of Baba women are much more likely to do it than that breast cancer survival rates have gotten better and with men massive improvement with prostate cancer and that's because a new protocols new treatments and I saw USA today item but I don't know if this was related to the American cancer society thing but the survival of melanoma has improved tremendously and so this is really good news but it all starts with you having a regular doctor or nurse practitioner or physician assistant but you go to for a visit and I'm at a point in my life that I go for an annual checkup and don't know if that's going to wait for my wife for not but the battery of tests that I have indeed gives early warning if there are problems in a number of areas so this is good news with the survival rates and I hope that you'll take to heart what I've said about lifestyle I. E. smoking and second about if you can't remember the last time you saw a medical professional maybe that's something you need to change mark is with us on the Clark Howard show hi mark Hey mark how are you doing today great thank you mark what's up well I have a question for my son he's at least thirteen and next week and he's been asking all the fast food restaurants how he asked me to start working and there are several of them that at fourteen he can work like fifteen hours or something like that this is information that I need with the fourteen year old we thought it was age fifteen fourteen I know for a fact he asked problems in front of me and they told him that he could work at fourteen for fifteen hours and there is a couple of places that he's asked while he was with his mom and I'm not sure about what those were but there was a few of them that all in the fourteen mark Porter signed so you were not talking it's terrible because I've always had this thing where I wanted my kids to start working at fifteen right now I'm gonna push my son a year younger thank you but the the question I have he's he's been watching it I've I've just started investing I'm thirty seven so I'm a little bit behind home Kerr but I I'm I'm starting now and he's he asked me how much he could have it he started working at fourteen and started investing and so we went online and found an investment calculator and figured out he invested ten percent from time use fourteen until the time he was sixty how much you have I don't remember the exact numbers and he said well what if I invested fifty percent law I'm living at home and so we went through and did it for for fifty percent from the time he was fourteen till the time he was twenty one and then drop it down to ten percent after that and they wouldn't like astronomical money that he would have and so he is like super excited about getting to investing once he gets a job and I was wondering I I am investing on an app based investment and I have my four oh one K. at work and the the after that I'm using has three different levels and I'm on the first level which is a dollar a month so you're using using stature acorns are we trying to stash okay all right so I actually have a different suggestion for your son okay I want him to open a Roth IRA and do that with fidelity investments I'd like you to go with him once he gets a job I'd like you to go to the closest fidelity office to you and go open an account with him for him no no no minimum required for their investments you can open a Roth IRA you can put in the maxi can put in was is six grand a year but the beauty with fidelity they have what are called zero fines they have no management fee at all okay no commissions so every penny those calculators or you were using would actually be accurate the every penny Scott would be a hundred percent invested with no cost being taken by fidelity they do this is a way to attract new clients search taking their son to an investor center would be I mean it it's high touch and I like that we have are you doing that with your fourteen year old versus just having an app because also I want him in a Roth because then the money grows tax free all through the years and spent tax free yeah that that's the reason I was calling was because with sashes the together because Tony account it's in the night you have to bump up to the ninety dollars a month and I was wanting to see if there was something that was a better option for that price or it seems yeah parts a year yeah so that's where I start do you know what city do you live and mark war or just outside of Springfield Missouri okay I I would guess that Springfield would have a fidelity office if they don't then you can do some more stuff with Charles Schwab and hopefully one or the other or both have an office you can go to the it's a reasonable drive from where you live thank you very much all right and this is this is so this is such a wonderful experience I've had speaking with you that you have a fourteen year old who not only is chomping at the bit to work but also has such a clear path about wanting to save money and this all this from him that he wants to save money right yes he he's seeing what I'm doing and you know how when I figured out what I have to save to be able to have a decent retirement and I'm not gonna be able to get that right now and so he's he's decided that looking at what I have to do now will it be better for him to start when you were younger and then when we saw the prices you know they they he would have he was like oh my god yeah I'm definitely doing this this is a great great great stuff habits and start young that are great habits like this typically become lifetime habits and your son's going to be in great shape rides with us on the car carriage a whole ride hi Clark how are you today great thank you Ryan how can I be of service to you well I have a question regarding you talk a lot about four three keys and and kind of got me thinking awhile back my wife and I both have started our own economic years ago before we had Matt and now we're both around between eight to ten years from retirement and I'm wondering about whether I should we should continue to to find those we find them about six percent each we each have a mandatory where educators so we have a mandatory forty percent goes towards a retirement and then in addition that reporting six percent and our own plus repeat that all right that's impressive so each of you are saving twenty percent of your pay fourteen wasn't a choice but the other six is a choice you're making that's really good because you're setting yourselves up to have a good comfortable retirement thank you and also I thank you for the ages okay Max out our HSA as well and I recently stopped using back to pay for my expenses so I appreciate that if I heard awhile back as well that is great you know the four three B. thing as a national scandal the teachers that we say we value are being ripped off in retirement plans and the really the only exception I'm aware of is if your four O. three B. plans are with tia your heard a TIA I've heard you talk about that that's not who you're for three bees are winning now and that's not an option live with my okay so then I would say that in these years you have waiting to retirement your money should go into a Roth IRA for each of you with one of the low cost companies well that that's not an option either because of the income that we might so my question why the engine on the levels are Roth yes wow so I was asking should we look at a backdoor garage yes okay yeah you can have any money in a traditional IRA though either you have not okay we do not we just did not follow through up to now so definitely do the backdoor Roth and if you've heard me say just go either work on Investopedia error or Google how are the backdoor Roth works and do that as a way to get around the income limits into your Roth IRA where is the six percent how much money is that affected forty per year for each of you US seventy two hundred about all right and either view past age fifty I yes I just turned fifty this year my wife is forty eight all right so you're able to do seven she's able to do six in a back door Roth and I would do that and discontinue contributing to the four three B. with the high costs okay I'll just let that right out I was able to call another place yes and quick question if you want something the one I currently have I know I'm paying around two percent management and I did find some like talk to last couple days that has one that it's unfortunately also that I'm clear to accompany the employer provides and he said that a tax shelter historical account where with a one percent from what I'm paying now what I'd like to get into that one as you have you have a service a surrender charge in that for three B. I do not then do this instead call tia okay D. I. A. and tell him you want to move your four three B. from the company S. with today out but one of my employer I don't have a certain list that I can leave no no no if you have that's right right so the money you already have you can move to tia into one of their low cost plans and then moving forward do your money through the backdoor Roth and you'll get your costs down everything moving forward and I'd like you to look at doing that backdoor Roth with vanguard probably is the best lowest cost for you you're listening to the Clark Howard show.

"american cancer society" Discussed on 760 KFMB Radio

"A few minutes ago about the problems with what it costs at a hospital nobody knows an after the fact he had all those crazy bills but let's talk about something good about medicine there was a report from the American cancer society there was talking about the decline M. deaths from cancers in the United States and it shows the declining death rates over one generation and then just over the last couple years for several major cancers ones that take out more of us than like just about anything else and I want to tell you the transcript this trends our friend number one the cancer that kills the most men and women is lung cancer and the number of people dying from it in just one generation has declined precipitously I I don't know there's been an improvement like that with any other illness I am such a short period of time I can't think of anything and reason number one is the reduction in the number of people who smoke we're down to thirteen percent of Americans who smoke if you're one of that thirteen percent of American adults who smoke this should be something you really think about because cause and effect is clear is could be there are people who get lung cancer never smoked but the big problem is for people who smoke in addition to the improvement from that there's been great improvement and survivability of lung cancer because of the fact that people who have early detection of what starts off as a symptom was cancer have a very high chance of survival those who are never checked out don't go the doctor all that great risk and obviously if you smoke or have smoked you should make this a priority in your life because you can take something that could be a death sentence they make it just a bump in the road second colon cancer a lot of people don't have a regular medical professional they go to they're not on a cycle of having a colonoscopy they're not that bad they can save your life early detection is everything with colon cancer and the death rates from it because of an increased number of people being screen is way down but guess what their fidelity rate is fifty percent higher in men than women why because men don't like to go to the doctor women are better at taking care of themselves and so their survival rate with colon cancer much much higher with women and the improvement has been great for both men and women but the survival rate is much much better with women just because source of colonoscopy every ten years when you're fifty or older unless there's a family history of Baba women are much more likely to do at the met breast cancer survival rates have gotten better and with men massive improvement with prostate cancer and that's because a new protocols new treatments and I saw USA today item but I don't know if this was related to the American cancer society thing but their survival with melanoma has improved tremendously and so this is really good news but it all starts with you having a regular doctor or nurse practitioner or physician assistant but you go to for a visit and I'm at a point in my life that I go for an annual checkup and don't know if that's gonna wait for my life or not but the battery of tests that I have indeed gives early warning if there are problems in a number of areas so this is good news with this survival rates and I hope that you'll take to heart what I've said about lifestyle ID smoking and second about if you can't remember the last time you saw a medical professional maybe there's something you need to change mark is with us on the car carriage oh hi mark eight okay great thank you mark what's up well I have a question for my son he's at least thirteen and next week and he's been asking all the fast food restaurants how he asked me to start working and there are several of them that at fourteen he can work like fifteen hours or something like that anyway this is information that I need with a fourteen year old we thought it was age fifteen fourteen I know for a fact he asked Brahms in front of me and they told him that he could work at fourteen for fifteen hours and there is a couple of places that do that as well he was with his mom and I'm not sure about what those were but there was a few of them that all in the fourteen mark Porter signed so you were not talking it's terrible because I've always had this thing where I wanted my kids to start working at fifteen right now I'm going to push my son a year younger thank you but the the question I have he's he's been watching it I've I've just started investing I'm thirty seven so I'm a little bit behind competitors but it I I'm I'm starting now and he's he asked me how much you could have it he started working at fourteen and started investing and so we went online and found an investment calculator and figured out if he invested ten percent from time use fourteen until the time he was sixty how much you have I don't remember the exact numbers and he said well what if I invested fifty percent while I'm living at home and so we went through and did it for for fifty percent from the time he was fourteen till the time he was twenty one and then drop it down to ten percent after that and it was like astronomical money that he would have and so he is like super excited about getting to investing once he gets a job and I was wondering I I am investing on an app based investment and I have my four oh one K. at work and the the app that I'm using has three different levels and I'm on the first level which is a dollar a month so you're used to using stature acorns or were trying to stash okay all right so I actually have a different suggestion for your son okay I want him to open a Roth IRA and do that with fidelity investments I'd like you to go with him once he gets a job I like you to go the closest fidelity office to you and go open an account with him for him no minimum required for their investments you can open a Roth IRA you can put in the maxi can put in was is six grand a year but the beauty with fidelity they have what are called zero funds that have no management fee at all okay no commissions so every penny those calculators or you were using would actually be accurate the every penny Scott would be a hundred percent invested with no cost being taken by fidelity they do this is a way to attract new clients taking their son to an investor center would be I mean it it's high touch yeah and I like that we have you doing that with your fourteen year old versus just having an app because also I want him in a Roth because then the money grows tax free all through the years and has spent tax free yeah that that and I was calling was because with stashes the together because Tony account it's not the night you have to bump up to the nine dollars a month and I was wanting to see if there was something that was a better option for that price order it out you know but since her name products a year without a dollar yeah so that's where I start do you know what city do you live and mark war or just outside of Springfield Missouri okay I I would guess that Springfield would have a fidelity office if they don't do you can do similar stuff which Charles Schwab and hopefully one or the other or both have an office you can go to the it's a reasonable drive from where you live thank you very much all right and this is this is so this is such a wonderful experience I've had speaking with you that you have a fourteen year old who not only is chomping at the bit to work but also has such a clear path about wanting to save money and this all is from him that he wants to save money right yes he he's seeing what I'm doing and you know how when I figured out what I have to save to be able to have a decent retirement and I'm not gonna be able to get that right now and so he's he's decided that looking at what I have to do now that it be better for him to start when you were younger and then when we saw the prices you know they they he would have he was like oh my god yeah I'm definitely doing this this is great great great stuff habits and start young that are great habits like this typically become lifetime habits and your son's gonna be incorporate shape rides with us on the car carriage of all ride hi Clark how are you today great thank you Ryan how can I be of service to you well I have a question regarding you talk a lot

retirement and I'm wondering about whether I should we should continue to to find those we find them about six percent each we have a mandatory what educators so we have a mandatory forty percent it goes to our state retirement and then in addition that reporting six percent and on for three weeks and that's impressive so each of you are saving twenty percent of your pay fourteen wasn't a choice

The Link Between Obesity and Cancer

"Both cancer and obesity are serious health risks. Let's look at some data about the increased rate of obesity. The National Adult Great in two thousand sixteen was almost forty percent. This is even sadder that child obesity rate was just under twenty percent nationwide so obesity has increased by seventy percent over the past thirty years for adults and children by eighty. Five percents crazy. What does that mean in reality? It means four out of ten adults over. The age of twenty are considered obese. Carolyn O. That's just oh then the thought of that is just you know. Are we headed? Yeah where are we headed? And we see every day but You know it's really scary. So the American Cancer Society estimates that forty eight hundred new cancer cases are diagnosed each day each day. That's nearly five thousand cases daily so the lifetime probability of being diagnosed with cancer is slightly more than one out of three people. Wow how that's really scary. So researches found that about five percent of cancers in men and about eleven percent of cancers in women can be attributed to excess body weight however the connection between weight and cancer can be quite complicated so some studies suggest that on the risk for some cancers if he'd appear to be more for people who are overweight as a child or as a young adult so. I think this is really alarming because as you just said over the past thirty years the obesity rate for children has increased by eighty five percents. So where are we headed? Where and you know I love. I love where we're going in our society when it comes to decreasing fat shaming and decreasing The all of the the love your body as its as it is and I love that however we have to look a little deeper in. Are you putting your health at risk? Because that's really what's important here. Loving yourself is fantastic and But we WANNA look at. What is the risk factors attributed to obesity? And when I think back to my elementary school days it really was very rare to have more than Really one overweight child and class but today teachers tell us that many children need classroom are overweight or obese. And you have to ask. Does this mean as these children are aging that they're at a higher cancer? Risk It could go very high so that. That's the scary place. Yeah it really is so listeners. You might be wondering. So how does obesity actually cause cancer? So let me see if I can explain this a little bit so we all understand. The risk You are taking. If you're carrying extra body fat. You know many people who are overweight frequently. Stop looking in the mirror you know. That's not very comfortable right or they refused to be weighed or they you know they. They won't way themselves and they won't themselves at the doctors. I don't want that lecture Yeah No of course not or maybe. These people stop shopping for clothes until they lose some weight. A man like I hear that I'm not gonNA shop because I need to lose some weight and we've all exactly but do they lose the weight. Unfortunately that just doesn't happen and as Dietitians. We've heard it all right now but I don't think most people realize that extra body fat is really increasing. Their risk for cancer perhaps to really seriously Understand a about losing weight. Many people who are overweight or obese half to realize the results from these decades now of research it's involving millions of people and this research clearly shows the link between being overweight or being obese and getting cancer. So what I want you to realize. Is that being overweight or obese is much more serious than just how you look how you look in the Mirror. Of course of course once again How could be in a way cause cancer? Let's look at the biochemistry for better understanding our listeners. Fat Cells make extra hormones more growth factors and inflammation. And when you have extra fat is specially around the liver pancreas heart and kidneys the fact consistently sends out messages to the rest of your body.

Strides in lung cancer lead steep decline in U.S. death rates

"According to a new report from the American Cancer Society Cancer Death rate in the United States dropped two point two percent from twenty sixteen to twenty seventeen. That's the largest decline ever reported in the span of the year. which is great news for us so second circuit grim reaper? Akilah what does the research actually say about wide. Those rates are dropping so there are a few reasons for the drop but before we get into them. Let's let's talk about what that two point two percent number actually represents so what's really driving. This is lung cancer. Rates and skin cancer rates And that's where they've seen the most progress so a lot of that is due to change behaviors in the population's less smoking wearing sunscreen but also there are much better treatment treatment options than there have been previously. The report did also say though that progress has stalled on other types of cancers those cancers are prostate breast and colorectal rectal cancers experts blame sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy food which can lead to hormonal issues and inflammation but they also blamed geographic economic an racial disparities in access to care and exposure to environmental toxins. So you know lots of factors right and these numbers are kind of more reflective of lung and skin cancer rates declining client versus all cancer rates overall declining and statistically lung cancer kills more people than breast prostate colorectal and brain cancers combined. So why are people more likely to survive lung cancer now. Yeah I mean a big part of that answer is how doctors are treating cancer now so imaging. Technology has advanced to a point that doctors there's are now accurately assessing the stage of cancer and its prognosis. So you know there's not all this over treatment that might lead to side effects In recent years more doctors have turned to less invasive options for surgery which leads to better recovery times and outcomes and immunotherapy has become way more widely used since two thousand fifteen so therapy for those. Who Don't know is essentially when you know? There's something that stimulates your immune system to help you. Fight the disease in tumors The same can also be said about skin cancer and it's also really important to note though that even though there has been progress. The progress is uneven across the country so these cancer death rates still vary between states that promote preventative healthcare like vaccinations and those that tend not to so perfect perfect example from the New York Times You are probably more likely to cervical cancer in Arkansas than in Vermont because Arkansas hasn't widely adopted the HP vaccine ax seen as Vermont has done for the past decade. Okay Well now it's time to address the elephant in the room. That is We're we are a daily news podcasts. And other Daily News shows did a whole two part special teams juuling so if you smoking in vaping usage is up. Does that mean that this progress progress could be loss at some point so it is tough to say right now so scientists are still studying the effects of e cigarettes when used for long periods of time and there are are carcinogens and e cigarettes they just don't know yet what the full cancer risk is. Because it's a new thing but based on the report the decline in deaths from lung cancer can can be attributed both to people quitting smoking and advances in treatment so if juuling leads to cigarette smoking then yeah we could zero versatile in this downward trend of lung cancer it would be bat. Yeah but one thing that is conclusive is that access to treatment and vaccines and advocating for equal treatment across socioeconomic and racial lines will in the long run ensure less people die from cancer.

"Jersey Special Olympics polar bear plunge. That's a huge one American Cancer Society things like this cancer, the big one right things like this. But what about the tiny little guys? What about the ones that are for causes that you would never even think of and frankly, and this is one of the reasons that I wanted to do this even animal rescues a small little animal rescue. And let me tell you a story. You might say it's a corny name of the rescue group where we got our dog Finn. But the name of the group is furry tail endings. I laugh every time I'd say, it's very schmaltzy. I know, but it's fairytale endings and probably about a month ago. And this was after we had this was after we had adopted this dog she gets a lot of dogs. And this is just like one woman who runs this whole thing. She's got some help. But she gets a lot of dogs that and abused on the streets in towns in Texas. And then they come up here. Apparently, there are laws are not that strict down there as far as, you know, animal cruelty and things like this. And they don't have a great network of people there. So they have been with all those people. You would certainly think that they would right. But this is what we hear. So that is where we got our dog. And then we probably had fin for I don't know a couple of weeks. And then we heard and it wasn't like she was calling us looking for anything whatsoever. My wife became a fan of hers, and she. She was just following her on Facebook. I believe is how my wife found this out of my wife told me how this poor woman. She puts everything she has into this small charitable cause that nobody's ever heard of trying to help out these dogs that are on the street and need a home. And she got a couple of dogs again from Texas and the person who sent them up here was like fostering them for a few days. But then sent them up here. They took photos of the dog, but from very curious specific angles to not show the dogs necessarily. Well, they insisted everything was fine with these dogs. No problems with these dogs and the dogs arrive, and it's out of the Texan people's hands. Now, and the dogs had parvo, which is like this very very serious disease. And it's very expensive to save dogs. Like this one of the dogs was like, skin and bones. Couldn't tell from the photographs. They did it on purpose. They totally did it on purpose, and they pass it off onto this poor woman at fairytale endings, and she was kind of screwed, and you know, she wasn't just gonna put dogs down or anything, and she can adopt the dog out like that. And she just went into her own pocket and probably own credit cards, this cost this woman, eight thousand dollars eight thousand bucks, and that was one of the reasons I wanted to do this because there's a lot of charities out there that you just never heard. Of and you know, it might be worth like given them a small plug or something. Now, a bigger reason I wanted to and I met I haven't been talking about this on the air here. And there there is there's an auto company car sales called autosport auto group. And I met the guy who runs the ship. It was a family company. They're celebrating their fiftieth year anniversary. It was started. By this guy. Steve's dad's Steve has it now. But Steve grew up working in this. And you're saying, well, what does this have to do about cars, but hold on Steve grew up like he did everything he, you know, the guy who moves the cars, and it takes like a geometric nightmare to get the cars moved around. Like he did that he washed them hose them down everything that you could do all the lower levels. He did every aspect of the car business. And when I spent time meeting this guy, he is not like a car guy. He does not look like a car salesman whatsoever. And not to be. A jerk. But a lot of car salesman. The lot of car owners, you picture them in the commercials where they're like, you know, we got up deal. And this guy's not like this is the kind of guy like so nice and has such integrity. You would want him as your neighbor, and you would never guess that. That's what he does for living. And here's one aspect of that they decided that for their fiftieth anniversary autosport auto group what they're doing is. They came up with a campaign for a whole year. And they're doing something called autosport cares. Now, if you want a lot of information about this, you could find it on nj one zero one five dot com. If you look along the top little tabs, there's one little tab that will talk about win twenty five hundred dollars for a charity, that's the tab because each month, they are they are having people nominee a charity, and then they pick one of those per month and each month, they're given a check twenty five hundred dollars to help out a charity. It's not about selling cars. It's not for every car. We sell. We're going to do this has nothing to do with that. He just they just want to give back to the community. So I want to draw little attention to that. As well. But the, you know, the rescue woman, she's just like a little fish in an enormous, and I felt bad for her too. So at one eight hundred two eight three one zero one point five tell us about your charities simple as that. I would suggest. Poetic parkas. I'm going to guess it. But there's an alien a- autism parents of autistic children. There you go. I have heard of poetic. Yes. So that's the help find activities and link people up and just generally try and make a great atmosphere for kids who are often excluded. So. You know, that is very nice because and this is just like a low level of that. I guess our son who is three is having a hard time, even making friends even among children with autism. Because he's nonverbal and like there's one boy that the play together all the time. But only when they're in the center, and we talked about like, you know, maybe having the play together when they're outside of a, and we don't know if it's because he's nonverbal or not. But like it never went anywhere. It seemed like a lot of times even within the autism community. It's like they don't want their child to go back to being nonverbal navy. I so yeah, he has like a hard time too. So that's like that's like a really nice thing to hear my son's eating lunch by himself most of his life. I see that breaks my heart breaks mine too. He's a funny smart guy. He is. But he's not very verbal. Yeah. At least to a lot of people. Yeah. All right. Well, we'll oh. And that's one thing that they do a lot of by the way. Which touches my heart that autosport group does a lot with autism speaks as well. Which I think they might be doing next month since it's autism awareness month in April. But anyway, real quick again if you would like to. Nominate any charity that might be.

"american cancer society" Discussed on 760 KFMB Radio

"Eight six six ninety redeye he is Harley and I'm Gary McNamara. Thanks so much for being here. This morning. Well, yesterday, we told you that story that was out there where the Israeli scientists said that they believed that they have we'll have a cure for cancer all cancers within a year where they would basically take a biopsy, and they would have the treatment specific to you as an individual, and it would be a couple of weeks treatment, and it would be affordable. And of course, we always are, you know, are healthy skeptics here. And we said we'll wait till we see some kind of response from those in the cancer community. New York posted an article Dr Ben Neill, and he was quoted by number of people yesterday from NYU their cancer center told the post said cancer is multiple diseases. And it is highly unlikely that this company has found a cure for cancer anymore that there is a single cure for infections. You said then more likely this claim is yet another in the long line of spurious irresponsible, and ultimately cruel false promises to cancer patients. He had an Email, of course, carrying cancerous goal of everyone who comes to work every day at the cancer center. And if this company does in fact, cure cancer, they will have my congratulations. And thanks, Dr Len Litchfield chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society. We wondered we've figured that they probably wondered and figure though at the same time that they would probably be one of the first organizations to comment on it said in a blog Tuesday that it goes without saying that we all share the aspirational hope that they are correct. Unfortunately, we must be aware that this is far from proven as an effective treatment for people with cancer. Let alone a cure. He said the key to the success of the research is apparently the focus of this experimental treatment approach on several abnormalities in cancer cells at the same time. Limiting the ability of the cancer cell to change its genetic pattern and become resistant to typical treatments. Litchfield noted that the Israeli teams research has apparently not been published in the scientific literature were would be subject to peer review, and that was one of our questions if this group is just beginning clinical trials, they may well have some difficult experiments ahead. It is certainly possible that this approach. May work. However as experience has taught us, so many times the gap from successful mouse experiment to effective beneficial application of exciting laboratory concepts to helping cancer patients at the bedside is in fact, a long and treacherous journey filled with unforeseen an anticipated obstacles right there, you go. Yeah. And what you know. I I guess what you're getting at least just after the the day after it was announced is some of the medical community coming out insane. Prove it, and that's it. I mean, that's that's that's where that that. You know, peer review comes in. And that was my first that was the first red flag for me when that story came across. All right is the rest of the the medical community. How is if we were that if they were that close how was it? The rest of the medical community wasn't aware of that. And there wasn't some kind of chatter about that. Because there would be that would be all over. And if you bought the, and it would have been likely would have been much sooner would have been maybe even a few years ago if not longer that this. We believe this technique is going to work one day, and we could see this five to move into trials five ten years down the down the road, not twelve months out. Well, the the the the one thing and you brought up the was theranos which was different case than than this. Because even the you've got these medical professionals use cancer specialist saying, okay, we see we think we see where they're going was the same with. Well, there there was they were scrutinizing. It was you know, the Wall Street Journal that really undid the whole theranos thing. They there was. It was the same approach though. It was the same response by the medical community, essentially show show us, you know, show us that this was going to work, and of course, when they got into it. The Wall Street Journal was maligned, of course, by the by the company, you had household names and prominent people sitting on the board of their nose, and at that point, the founder became a billionaire at some point she was worth nine billion or something like that. But when the Wall Street Journal, broke it down. Everything started falling apart. Then you're deal with the drug stores and everything else started falling apart. But the medical community was was basically saying the same thing. They're saying here. Yeah, you're going to have to show us. And and the the problem was is that they actually had people that they were doing blood tests on. Which of course, got false results. Well, I mean, the the concern is if you're a private entity that you're always trying to get private investment. And so you give out as much optimism is possible. If you're doing it if you're trying to do both get legit investors that may get a return on their investment and at the same time to promote it as being credible. Which would help you in both. That's where you need peer review. I would think I would think along the process. Okay. We've got to step one. Here's what we've done you put that up for peer review, people say, okay? That's a great start. You know, where do you go from here? You know, what what what's the next step while we done this? And we believe the next step would be that. And then you get peer reviews, stating, you know, for many doctors or many of the best cancer specialist. This looks like they're on the right path. And you move it. You just don't go from nothing to we believe we have a cure for cancer, right right with you don't get to that point of saying, we have a cure for cancer without having something or a large body of evidence of your research that has already been put out to peer review. That's how I would think it would it would supposed to would supposed to go. Yeah. I mean, you have the second in command there at the at the theranos that was essentially fired for questioning their methodology and what they were doing. So that kind of some of that came from internally, and that's how it works. They were claiming that you could do this extensive blood tests dot with a small amount of blood. And and you know, that's that would have been a big deal that would have been revolutionary had it been true. But it's not. You can't change those dynamics at least the technology's not there right now to to change that. And it never was for us. That even close. And one day. They'll get to a cancer cure. I believe I don't know if it's going to be in our lifetime. But what accompanies claiming twelve months? Sorry instant red flag. Instant red flag. Yeah. I mean, that's. Well, somebody said well, a casper said so twelve years, let's go twelve months. No. If you said, we believe in five years would be able to have it out. But when you throw out something, and that's when you know you and I when we were even talking about an appreciable meeting before we went on the air. We said. This seems to have everything right everything that you would want from cure. Much more affordable will be ready in a year. And then we thought even reading the article well. Not really even what they're talking about is by the time, you have trials in might be available in some cases, you know, in a few years, but the even the headline stating that would be available in a year. Well, not really, and then we just said, you know, there's so much, you know, when you start talking about cancer and the different types of cancer. And and and the u mutation of the the the the cells, and and and the tremendous amount of research has been done that you would just think that if you thought it was legit and really legit. You would have put a ton of research. Of what you were doing for peer review. So when you announced it you had legit. You know, totally you had totally legit backing for investors to come in and make this thing ago, right? Well, global big pharma would have been pouring money into this. I mean, they already are pouring money into a ton of things a research and development on on any given treatment. Or or drug is is massive. It's it's extremely expensive. But something like this. If they were that close certainly would have been a huge target for them. It would it would change the world. And it's going to be interesting to see the response from the Israeli scientists and from this company over the next couple of days, stating know, that's one thing that I didn't even see in the article we plan to put all the soft appear review, right? Right. Or this will be going out. We're going to be putting it in this medical probably partners that are working with us. And because that's what you would want. An and we we are bringing we're we're going to bring in the, you know, the different cancers. So the American Cancer Society, we want we want the CDC we want major universities to be checking what we're doing here because we think we now unless they're worried about the patent. Is that the experience that they would get? Sure, we don't want somebody stealing our technology. Unfortunately, you've got to put it up for peer review. Otherwise, it really doesn't mean much. I remember I can still remember when people the whole thing. Either going to Mexico going back twenty five years ago for for lay a trail, and I can still remember because I was beginning to my talk radio career people telling me all your part of the establish will no I wouldn't do it because it's not there's nothing proven y'all. See your against alternative medicine. Oh, yeah. I guess we with the same thing has been said about, you know, when we've criticized the fact that public opinion. Shouldn't be the leader of saying that pot is medicine. That should come from science strictly come from size. And not from public opinion which had which had has. And now you see it every day. You see more articles coming up the medical community, stating look at what was the article the other day was I forgot who had it. It said look pots not medicine. Stop it. It could alleviate some symptoms. But so can a ton of new drugs that have come out in the last five years, and a lot of people that are promoting the, you know, medical marijuana are ignoring the new chemicals that have been up the last and the new medicines throughout the last five years for nausea pain and everything else. Even on the the if you're gonna do homeopathic approach than you still have other alternatives. But that's far from calling medicine, even if it helps with certain symptoms. And and leave that up to science leave that up to scientific community, which maybe they'll get there again. I mean, if increasing the appetite for cancer patient or an aids patient, absolutely great fine. But again, that's that's far from you know, calling it medicine. From it actually being medicine. So it'll be interesting to see what happens over the next week on this because this is something if you're the company Israeli company you'd wanna be promoting this every single day right now. Look, we invite the skeptics to look at our research. Well, we're we're we're we're gonna we're gonna be posted. We want peer review on the science behind. You know, what what we're doing here? And why we believe it's going to work. We brought these organizations and we brought the American can we want people to see this because this would be one of the biggest breakthroughs in medicine ever. And we think we're on the right path. That's exactly what I thought. You know, you could see an theranos or any other research company if it would have been about the research. This is what we believe. We'll get to a point at some point. With this technology that you can walk into a drugstore and get a comprehensive blood test and not have to give a vial or to a blood in order to get it done. I think you would still have investors on board that say, okay, what first of all show us which direction you're you're headed. And why? But it wasn't about that. It was according to thirties. It was it was fraud. Eight six six ninety redeye. Tips from JJ Keller and associates Inc. On driver wellness. Establishing a regular exercise routine is nearly impossible when spending days and nights away from home finding enough room and enough time to exercise while off duty on the road is tough. But a little creativity can produce some results for your efforts. When taking a break take a longer walk outside before returning to your cab. It might get you closer to a goal of ten thousand daily steps. But if you're going to walk remember to be aware of your surroundings and stay safe.
