Fresh update on "american cancer society" discussed on The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.
"You'll get ten percent off this really great formula. I think you'll love it as much as i do. Now let's get back to this week's episode of the doctors pharmacy. Welcome the doctors pharmacy. I'm dr mark. Hyman as pharmacy with an faa are mac. Y place conversations that matter if you are someone in your family or someone you know has had cancer this conversation's going to matter a lot as it's with an extraordinary physician dr jason. Fung who i know is a friend. He's a physician. he's an author. He's a researcher and he says some groundbreaking work uncovering the root causes of disease and science-based books about diabetes and obesity might have heard about them the diabetes code the obesity code the complete guide to fasting. Which is fantastic. And i recommend that a lot for orange did an intermittent fasting time restricted eating long-term fast. He sold over a million copies and really challenged the whole idea. That diabetes should be treated with insulin. Which has actually. I agree with which is a problem because it's too much insulin. It causes type two diabetes and we keep giving more which actually causes worst problems. He's the co founder of the fastening method. It's a program to help people lose weight reversed type two diabetes. Natural fasting has been featured on cnn. Time magazine the atlantic forbes of china star in lots of other groups in his new book at a cancer code a revolutionary new understanding of a medical mystery is out now This is an incredible book. It looks backwards on here but don't worry about that. It's an incredible book that is leading the way in a new understanding of how we have to think about cancer. Because so much of our thinking about cancer is really outdated. I call the poison burnin slash method which is actually how injury. Cancer pretty pretty archaic. We're gonna look back in two thousand eight hundred fifty years and realized that we were on the wrong track. A welcome to the doctors pharmacy jason. Thanks for having me mark great to be here so let's get right into it. So cancer is is one of those things that is challenging to address. And it's something people really fear. I mean heart disease. We understand diabetes. We understand even alzheimer's no for the most part we do understand it. Cancer is still a mystery for many instill even for science and how we approach it from a scientific point of view. And there's been lots of theories about it a lot of them in turn out to be wrong and our poachers been misguided. Which is why you know. Fifty years after the war on cancer was started by president nixon. We still really haven't won right and so really. What is cancer. What makes it develop macos. It and why is it so common people right. Yeah it's and these are actually great questions because the thing about Cancer is that. There's all these paradoxes. So we get stuck in this sort of genetic paradigm where this random mutation that causes cancer. That's sorta the paradigm infused for fifty years and it. It leaves a lot to unexplained problems. So i approach it sort of Trying to see where we've come from and where we sort of Are taking a so you know getting back to the slash and burn sort of thing is like i call that sort of the first sort of paradigm of cancer not was that cancer was the cell basically grew too much that was our thought so the logical treatment therefore is to find ways to kill cells. And that's really what gave a surgery which is cutting and radiation bernie and chemotherapy which is basic question right. And that's why it worked actually worked very well in some cases but there's a lot of side effects. People are their harris falling out there throwing up and then in the nineteen seventies the paradigm sort of shifted so we needed to understand cancer. Sort of at a deeper level. So we said okay Yes we know that cancer cells are growing. But why are they growing right. That's the real question. And as we started to unravel sort of dna in genes and chromosomes. We said ha this is the answer. Here it's a genetic defect so if you have growth jeans while if you have a mutation in random mutation in a growth team you can get cells that grow too much. So that's where the whole paradigm shifted. It's important because it changes the whole treatments now. Instead of trying to find ways to kill cells we switched than we said. Let's fix those genetic problems and so through the eighties and nineties. A you know we worked on these and some some incredible successes so we had a matinee which was used for a type of leukemia and really a game changer. Like just fantastic stuff right. The mortality from chronic myelogenous leukemia. Just foul hennion. There's trans-tasman mob which was for breast cancer The two new receptor and so it also changed the game like it was a fantastic drug and so we thought okay. You know this is great so all we need to do he sort of figure out the water to mutations in breast cancer one or two nations in colon cancer. We're gonna find the drugs. We're going to cure cancer. And that was the thought through most of the nineties and so on and then the problem was it didn't work out that way. So as we did the in two thousand and completed the sort of human genome project and we sequence all the genes. We thought okay. Well here we go with the roadmap to curing cancer. But of course it didn't so we embarked on even more ambitious. Graham which was the cancer genome atlas which sequence not just one human genome but the the cancer so we took cancer from thirty three thousand samples and we took all genomes sequenced entire genomes. That okay great. Like we've bought a thousand cases of breast cancer. Let's compare let's figure out what kind of mutations we have. Let's get the top one or two will solve the problem and a horse. What we found was not one or two mutations so for breast cancer for colon cancer common cancer there's like fifty to a hundred it was replete bedlam right. So you in your oncology planet which was sued patient a breast cancer hundred different mutations and patient be with the exact same looking cancer hundred completely different mutations. So that's not gonna work because the whole idea of you know giving a developing hundred drugs was just. That wasn't gonna work. And that was sort of the death the sort of genetic sort of paradigm. And that's really why we made so little progress from sort of nineteen eighty two sort of twenty ten when this fall are and that's really the problem so we've been stuck in this paradigm and now who started to shift into a whole new paradigm of cancer looking at it from sort of evolutionary standpoint and the whole idea of sort of this genetic It still persists if he goes to the american cancer society and.

"And getting seconds against Janet, which will be a place age cancer diagnoses, which absolutely poor outcomes. The American Cancer Society incense were diagnosed with cancer that Family history and lifestyle factors are going. Adults have skipped their scheduled cancer screenings during the pandemic. And in the first few months of the crisis, weekly diagnoses fell by nearly half for the top six types of cancer often believes the consequences of fewer cancer screenings will likely be felt over the next decade. 10,000 deaths just repressing colorectal cancer over the next 10 years and cancer diagnoses due to the organic before the pandemic. US cancer death rates for on the decline dropping by 25% in the past two decades, however, the CDC says cancers linked to weight gain and obesity are on the rise for public news service. I'm Nadia Ramadan. California has strongly recommended that hospitals test all their workers each week for the coronavirus. The recommendation comes his California reported nearly 7800 covert 19 hospitalizations yesterday, more than 1800 of those patients were in intensive care units. The California Department of Public Health also recommends hospitals test all patients before admitting them and to promptly test current patients once they show symptoms. California Nurses Association's called it a victory for nurses, saying hospitals will spread the disease without robust testing of workers. But the California Hospital Association said it does not have the capability to administer weekly tests for its workers. Texas surpassed 9000 Hospital hospitalized coronavirus patients today for the first time since the deadly summer outbreak as the pandemic 10 year, the desert artist tub of Marfa were tourists continued visiting and officials urge people to stay home.

Smashing the previous single day record. State health officials attributed at least some of the spike to a lag in reporting over the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend, But doctors and local leaders still say they're trending in the wrong direction. Marfa is located about 200 miles down the border from El Paso, where hospitalizations have fallen slightly after a grim November the town of roughly 1700 people is the second largest in Presidio County, where the past two weeks the number of cases since the pandemic began is doubled to at least 460.

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.

"Intervene here. I wish you the best of luck, girl. Thank you so much. Hey, guys, What's going on? This is Devon. This is another installment of Hampton. Roads. Perspectives where we highlight a different nonprofit each week. Tell you little bit about it. Some you've heard of Something maybe haven't But today I've got community development manager for the American Cancer Society. Michelle, Sweetie, that get it right. You got it right. Thanks so much. Devon is retreating again. I know I've had her in her before. She's such a doll, and she's going to tell us a little bit today about the American Cancer Society. We don't talk about making strides against breast cancer as well. But first things first. What is the what's the mission? So our mission is to lead the fight for a world without cancer that is attacking cancer from every angle from helping people get Teo their cancer treatments to being a part of the research process. So a CS does it all. Yeah. You guys really do now tell me a little about you and your job and how you're involved with Sure, thanks so much. Seven. So like, she said, My name is Michelle Sweezy. And I serve as a community development manager for the American Cancer Society. What That means is I put on some of the fantastic events and I'm part of some programs. That s yes. Runs like are making strides against breast cancer event for Hampton roads in a real men wear pink campaign. Roman really do wear a pink They dio. They were pink today on purpose. Of course, every day. Now, let's talk about obviously Cove it has affected Everything in the world. How has it affected the? Yes, Yeah, of course. Thanks. Seven. So a CS has not come out unscathed from Cove it unfortunately. As we sit right now we're sitting at a 50% reduction in cancer research, which will be our lowest investment in over a century. So we are continuing to fight and making sure that we can Have some amount of an effect on cancer this year and each year effort to come. Yeah, you talk a little bit about making strides against breast cancer. What does that tell me? All the details. I want to know more sure, so in a traditional year were typically talking about this about being a An event that brings together 5 to 6000 participants in Virginia Beach and another couple 1000 in Newport News, and it's looking a little different this year. Obviously so making strides has always been really a movement to bring together breast cancer survivors, their family members and caregivers. So we're doing it Virtually this year. That will be a virtual livestream events set on October 17th 18th, and we have a lot of different engagement throughout the fall is well, so you can be a lot coming up. Yeah, Absolutely not Like other ruin everything cos I know has cancer unfortunately, hasn't stopped. So neither have weight. Yeah. There you go, Girl. What's so special about participating in making strides? So making strides is your way to fight back. It's your way to fight back against breast cancer. Unfortunately, it's one in eight women that are diagnosed with this every year. So we we need to make sure that we can fight with our sisters and aunts and moms and really Continue the fight. Is it a myth that men can also get breast cancer? It's not so about 2500 men get diagnosed with it as every year. So, like I said, I have are real men wear pink campaign. That's true where I do engage different business leaders and community influencers to be a part of that campaign and our pink all year long. I think about it. Not that I want to meet anyone that's ever been through that. But I don't think I have ever met or even seen. A man speak about it having it But I know that if it does happen, I think it definitely exists. Some of the survivors that I know are not necessarily as comfortable with it, I think Having that kind of diagnosis. Even any cancer diagnosis. You see it very relevant in today's time. Some people just do not want to talk about their fight. If you just keep it pretty private. This is a little off topic was speaking of keeping it private. You heard about the Black Panther. I mean, had, like four here for years. I mean, and talk about that. He's got to have good friends that no one leaked that to anyone. No one knew. So it's just Yeah, a lot of people, especially men. I think we'll fight that. In private, but Understandably. So if you're just tuning in, that's Michelle so easy. She's the community development manager for the American Cancer Society. One more time for a new listeners. Michelle What's the American Cancer Society with the mission? So our mission is to lead the fight for a world without cancer? We've been around since 1918 is over 100 years of cancer research and programs in the fight. How cool is that to say in 2018 thatyou would hit 100 years You're like that's 100 years guy that's got this long time. Now, Avon is a sponsor again this year. Tell us.

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.

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.

"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

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.
The Link Between Obesity and Cancer
"I WANNA share an interesting fact from the American Cancer Society. Excess Body weight is linked to eight percent of all the cancers. The American Cancer Society reported that the link between obesity and cancer risk is clear actually excess body fat increases your risk for several types of cancers including colorectal cancer breast. Uterine kidney pancreatic at Safa. Gio Cancer's good morning listeners. I am Melanie Beasley a registered and licensed Dietitian and because I had breast cancer Several years ago. I'm always on the lookout for the latest research about cancer prevention and the
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.
Cancer Death Rates on the Decline
"Cancer deaths are on the decline the American cancer society's Rebecca Segal says a significant drop in lung cancer is a main contributor in the overall drop in cancer does we're seeing now progress in particularly smoking related cancers because of the decades long decline in smoking and those will continue because there's about a thirty to forty year lag between peak exposure in cancer occurrence Siegel says that cancer patients are also living longer in each stage of diagnosis because of better treatment methods and surgical techniques the leading killers remain cancer of the lung colorectal breast pancreas and

"For the American cancer society says so how awesome is that amazing amazing indeed ladies and gentlemen thank you for listening I'm your host Maria Boyington my guest today or Aaron Nixon and ginger will offer with the American cancer society Aaron is here she leaves the real men wear pink campaign real men wear pink that's a great statement Aaron it is real men have a feel like they've been wearing pink underneath everything else for so long and this is an opportunity to acknowledge them this is the fourth year for real men wear pink and this year we're so honored to have greater health system as a sponsor and like I said it's a great opportunity for the men who often times our children a lot of responsibility as women and other men go through the breast cancer journey but this is their time to step up and take some some shine in ownership of their role so I understand that real men wear pink is the new or component of your making strides against breast cancer campaign absolutely all the look all roads lead to the making strides against breast cancer walk and are real men it said select a group of about twenty eight honorees this year and we do have some requirements for them so the for. first is that they have to wear pink every day in October so they got to revamp their wardrobe with it we also ask them to raise five thousand dollars in support of programs so we've upped the ante a bit and we're holding them accountable but all of them have a very personal reason for volunteering in this way and also we hope that they will go out in their own communities and networks and serve as advocates and and spokespeople for the work that we're doing a CS so how will we be able to see these guys so they have a dedicated websites each one of them has their own personal website it's real men wear pink a CS dot org slash Atlanta Georgia but they will also be featured at are making strides against breast cancer kick off as well as the actual making strides against breast cancer walk but throughout the community each of them will be hosting various events to raise their funds so you might catch some of them hosting a golf tournament in they might do a you know a guest appearance at your local restaurant to be your server for the evening working for tips summer even thinking about doing a horseback riding ATV experience so they're being creative but they are the men in your community so we have a website with the calendar links where you can find their calendar yes there's a calendar of activities that's hosted on our website so anyone in the community can visit that link and find out some of the activities that are men or sponsor I was wondering if there was a calendar of the men no there's not making that that's an idea that there are real men working Halland there we're going to steal that love but there's not a calendar of the men but a calendar of their activities okay of course all the men will wear pink in October that's one of the requirements talking to Erin Nixon who is with the American cancer society along with ginger Williford who is also with the American cancer society so Aaron tell me how exciting it was when you all decided to bring the men in as part of the the whole to do of. out making strides against breast cancer so finding a way to incorporate the men is something that we've been hearing as a desire for the patients for the men as well it's it for some of them it's a very positive outlet a way for them to show their support but also build a sense of camaraderie amongst other men that all our support systems do some of the men have cancer have had cancer for our twenty nineteen honorees none of those men have been impacted by breast cancer directly but a lot of them have sisters or wives or mothers that are currently battling cancer or some that we've lost and for a few it's not a familial connection but some of the employees so this is a way for them to acknowledge their work their work family that's battling cancer ginger Williford is the director market strategy and planning also are making strides against breast cancer pacesetter meeting she's raised at least twenty five hundred dollars last year but she's been a pacesetter for the past few years now you walk the talk lady hi Dale I definitely do when I first started doing it really was because I wanted to immerse myself in the experience so there's the raising the money and then there's also experiencing the event and the event itself is so inspiring and amazing at the energy there is just so I basically see the walk as a celebration of the fund raising and the hard work that we do from August you know to October so of course you all the preparations are underway for the big deal which is in October on Saturday October twenty six going to be the making strides against breast cancer of allow walk is going back to centennial Olympic Park so ginger when we talk about this huge undertaking by the American cancer society it brings together a lot of folks the community businesses the like yes it absolutely does and that's what I think is really interesting is a lot of people don't realize that they do have a connection of breast cancer and you know when you come out to the event and you see all these. women who you know many are like Aaron they have gotten on the other side and they're celebrating years of survivorship and then you will see people who are currently going through their battle and like I said it's just really really inspiring and it brings everyone together and again people you wouldn't think are are dealing with that it just gives it gives people a chance to come together and celebrate and fight yeah I was at the last one being at SunTrust park so much Pete so much camaraderie so much fun well produced program if I may say so on the day of how excited are you when everything just comes together I'm super excited I I spend usually it do you know the months leading up not just fund raising the putting together my walked out that you know the two twos the pink like warmer. we do our registration challenge each year and you if you register and raise twenty five dollars by certain time you can get a pink Cape you can get some pink sunglasses are paying **** pack and they all and everyone where is it I mean it is just a sea of paying and there's just a lot of smiling and happiness and energy like I said it's it's an amazing celebration yeah and of course you have different media personalities there you have so many families there together you have people who are there saying I'm doing this for my daughter I'm doing this for my cousin my on my wife even and and people are there the music is great everyone's they're having a great time absolutely well produced program I must tell you that we've been talking a ginger will offer with the American cancer society back to Aaron Nixon now who is the lead on the real man where paint campaign we were introducing you air and we talked about how you're on the other side of it down you had breast cancer you're so young you say you're coming up on how many years I'm coming up on my ten year anniversary so how old were you when you were diagnosed twenty four and living ironically enough it moved back home figuring out life is most to do when they're fresh out of college and thankfully had a mother that insisted on is me staying on top of my health even at a young age and during an annual screening was when I was first when the lump was first detected along a lot what did the doctor tell you well being young it she assumed that it was probably nothing but said let's have you do a mammogram just to be short and roll everything out they said okay fair enough let's do the mammogram and did that and they said well yep we see something it's probably nothing though let's do the needle core biopsy just to make sure that okay I'll do that just to be sure and during this whole time I had until my family yet because I know how a breast cancer die. nosis or even the threat of one scares the family and I didn't want to worry them unnecessarily at first so I remember it was a Friday afternoon when the when the physician called and said we have the results of your biopsy so you can come back but would you bring someone with you when you do and at that moment I realized something might be going on and I need to tell my family so I called my mother and it was a complete shock to her but we went to the doctor in the saddest down it will she sat us down and said I'm really sorry but it is cancer. and from there I honestly don't remember much else of the conversation but I do remember her saying we've already set up several appointments for you if you want to visit with them or get second opinions will even help you with that but it's the weekend it's four o'clock on a Friday there's nothing to do right now but go home and and just be with your family so that's what I did and then Monday started the journey of what now you were twenty four twenty four yep I had great plans for twenty fifth birthday. but ironically enough I was diagnosed in September I believe so you days later I was engulfed in the sea of pink that we see due in large part to the work of American cancer society number going back into the doctor's office and just seeing pink and all things pink and it was it was overwhelming but it was also a very. not so subtle reminder that there is support out there so now being on the opposite side I'm happy to be part of that support for someone else talking to Erin Nixon tells a little bit more about your journey after you got the diagnoses you with you that we can post the diagnosis and then you had a whole different life come Monday morning entirely different life being young when I when I moved back home I realize I couldn't sit still so I just got a little part time job occupy my time. Holmes Tallahassee Florida okay and so I had to go and tell my new boss who I just met that my schedule was going to need to change a bit because I have this diagnosis and unfortunately like some people you know come experience is all employers aren't that supportive so that was another battle in and of itself but the next series of appointments war with an oncologist to discuss my chemotherapy treatment to decide of radiology would be a good option as well as surgery and genetic testing to see what the world happen why do you get this at such a young age so I decided to you know go all in stopped with the rate with radiation they didn't think that that would be necessary but I did about it see almost two months of chemotherapy lost the hair as we do but I started wearing some fabulous wigs in the in the meantime and opted for bilateral mastectomy Jess to be done with it and then reconstruction so I'm us some of the poster child of of the breast cancer journey but I'm I'm happy that I had a great care team and a supportive family with me going through it when we say bilateral you removed I regret spells yes I do I tried to save them by doing the lumpectomy but we couldn't get what they call clear margins that saying there's not enough little tendrils of this tumor that we've removed that we feel confident that we got everything there's a little bit of a trail over here we the more we keep pulling and pulling we still see.

"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.

She had surgery to remove part of her colon and her ovary. She then went on a strict diet, mostly juicing, no, red meat. No, dairy, no sugar processed food. She's gone back to the doctor every six months, the cancer is gone. And she has no signs of it. I would like Dr salads opinion, number one. That is. Misspent section. That sugar. Uses.

"Hey, before we move on a woman keeps calling saying there four hundred and fifty she got on the four hundred thirty two four hundred fifty deaths related to this HP, the vaccine, look, you can believe her or you can believe the CDC centers for disease control. No reports of death. No reports of death. So you understand this hundred million doses? Now have people died the got the vaccine. Yes. But they didn't die from the vaccine. Same with the connection between kids who have autism and the vaccine Dr Bob ferris, one of the most highly regarded surgeons experts in this area on earth says there is no connection between autism in the vaccine. Please don't buy into this. It's scaring me. And it makes me sad. I got Brian ghoulish here with the American Cancer Society with typical vaccines. Some folks have side effects, Brian, right? Yes. You will get side effects. And again, we can't say it's one hundred percent, right. You will have like I mentioned earlier soreness around the arm on the injection site on the arm redness, swelling. Maybe a slight fever that is pretty much. The extent of what you're going to get with this HPV vaccinations. And I wanted to run over some of the folks who should not get this vaccine, and Brian has this as well. This is also from the centers for disease control, not from some internet site. That's here to scare the daylights out of people. You have those Brian pregnant women anyone who has a severe allergy to yeast. Anyone who's ever had a life threatening allergic reaction to anything contained in the vaccine itself. So that's an ingredient of the vaccine or anyone who's at a serious reaction to an earlier dose of the vaccine just like with any other vaccine that's ever come down the line. Absolutely. And people need to know, this do they not they do, and there is a site that the Cancer Society that we have set up. It's WWW dot cancer dot org. Backslash HPV before launching HP cancer-free campaign. Our team internally spent two years building this site with information. So anything any questions, I would direct people to that site again cancer dot org. Backsides HPV any question any information, the goals of our mission, and what we're looking to do with it? So my mission is to make certain that you folks know what's going on with this HPV. It's why I'm here. I have cancer related. HPV it's in my tongue. And I will start already started. Immunotherapy I will start radiation and chemotherapy tomorrow on our sites sparked S P A R K T dot com. I want you to go there. And register I want you to read this information. I want you to watch this video piece that we put together describing my journey a Brian you think it's important because some folks are going to say for me, it's self serving. It's egocentric. It's narcissistic, I'm just trying to draw attention to myself. Tell me why you believe it's a good idea for folks who have a voice to get out there like this. So the focus of this is to really against strengthen awareness, again, thirty one thousand five hundred diagnosis HP related cancers each year, we can prevent ninety percent twenty nine thousand of those with this vaccination. So we're looking to do is five things strengthen clinician recommendation for the HP vaccination. Because we have to educate and train the parents, and let them know this is safe and effective number to engage critical stakeholders and partners people who are going through treatment such as yourself about making a direct impact. And I thank you so much for telling your story number three influenced the stakeholders to use the data to drive and track that success rate lead targeted HP vaccination challenges, and at first we want we want to combat those naysayers because they are out there because we do know the bait the facts based show that this ineffective and finally increase, parental knowledge. So we're going to mobilize our team of networks and volunteers as spokespeople and advocates to go out there and promote not just here in Pittsburgh. We're talking nationally close globally. We want to make a difference again mission. HPV cancer-free instill. I just read a piece what does it less than forty five percent of all teams have had this. Yes. So as of last year two thousand seventeen sixty six percent of teens thirteen seventeen received the first dose. Okay. Forty nine percent of received the seconds. So only forty nine percent. Of thirteen seventeen year old teens last year received the second dose, and that's why our goal is eighty percent. You want to get to at least eighty percent obviously the ultimate goal to be one hundred percent, but we need to start baby steps and work our way up in eighty percent. Because again, it's so important. It is cancer prevention. Eight six six three hundred hundred twenty-five questions jump in. Hey, tom. Thanks for your patience. Thanks for hanging in there. Go ahead. Okay. I wondered if you got I actually ran into cancer in my particular family, and there's a book out what it's about is the truth behind vied ill advised medical recommendations. And what it's on is done by Colin calling e champ. Okay. Okay. Donut time to read books here. What's your point? So please misguided ma- ma- medicine, and what deals with is the faxing American publics that are not really true about what? So you don't believe in vaccines that you're trying to say, no. Fantastic. It's the paint. It also goes through all the foods that that are missed. They are misguided. Nothing wrong. Thank you. There's a lot of bad information floating out there and folks just get on the internet and they Google four hundred and twenty deaths from HP, and you will find some crazy information. Yes. But then you go to legit sites. And it says this just ally exactly center for disease control, right FDA, American Cancer Society. We're able to provide one hundred percent fact based information, it makes me a little sad to be honest with you buddy that people sit down, and they fabricate facts. They believe to be true to scare the hell out of mothers and fathers. You're trying to make this decision. One of the stigmas is an and you know this. So so the whole notion is right that if my daughter has this vaccine, she's sexually promiscuous has nothing to do with that, sir. It does not. And actually, Dr Farah said earlier when I was driving, and I was listening to interview it makes one hundred percent sense. And what we're trying to do is bash certain stigmas as well because they're six HP related cancers. The vaccine can prevent most of those are south of the waste, right. So if we're not comfortable discussing those types of cancers with our children with the parents via the clinical clinical system, we're not going to be able to have the impact that we need to appropriately not only promote the campaign and the vaccine, but the tell the story. Folks, by the way, I don't want you calling screaming and yelling at me. We're not supposed to be screaming and yelling if you don't want to do this for your kids. That's you. I've just trying to raise awareness. That's it. And if we can't do that with a platform like this and on our site sparked SPF KT dot com. The why are we here? And why am I here? I'm here to make a difference in Brian's here to make a difference. When you saw this news, tease it jumped off the page at you didn't it to things vaccination twice. We actually said vaccination, and then vaccine, and you said your children and just knowing what we are doing right now at the American Cancer Society, we are in the training of our staff right now to go out in the field and promote this campaign. I immediately reached out to Paul Martino. Because I didn't know the full story to get information. And he told me I was spot on. I emailed you yesterday last night, we spoke and here I am now because it's such an important story to tell and I'm gonna tell it folks starting.

So since partnering on this end with the American Cancer Society and crucial catch, we have been happy to learn that they are not only helping lead the charge on breast cancer awareness, but that they have expanded that initiative to other types of cancer as well. What inspired you to get involved with crucial catch and what should our fans know about it. Well, a little bit about my background. You know, my younger brother was born with Niro less Doma. I was about fifteen months old at the time. So my family had to change things very quickly around our house and adapt to having a newborn with cancer. And so I've always been very passionate about pediatric cancer. You know, my brother is now twenty seven years old and cancer survivor. My family was very fortunate. Unfortunately. That's not always the case in through a lot of our work at university of Minnesota sonic children's hospital. You know, we've gotten to know a lot of families that have been on the other end of that. So not just pediatric cancer, but cancer as a whole doesn't discriminate, and it affects people of all walks of life. So it's something that I'm very passionate about and tried to every night can't. That's the court. Yeah, we we heard over here that training camp recently. You surprised several different types of cancer survivors with Vikings tickets. Can you tell us a little bit about that? Yeah, it was awesome on behalf of ACS and myself to have. I think we had over ten survivors and their families out to to practice during training camp. Got him hooked up with field passes and got him nice and close to the action. Then afterwards, I was able to surprise them with tickets to our crucial catch game this coming October. So I'm looking forward to having those families, the patients, the survivors and their families down to US Bank stadium for our game. That's awesome..

"Public, policy branch of the American Cancer Society and we fight an advocate for teaches at the state and local and federal level to either help people never get cancer or help the situation better for, people that do? End. Up getting. Cancer there obviously a, lot of layers to what you just discussed and part of what the season for our discussion today centers on a report that came out last week that had kind of. Broke Down some of, what you're talking about kind of. Like a report card of what Tennessee is doing and not doing in this particular realms that a fair way of describing this yes that's. Correct and I think it also provide the great national picture the can see what other states are. Doing and doing well you can be but some of our neighboring states are daily or not. Doing so I look at it yes a report card, a great where Kennedy excelling whereas Tennessee falling short but then. Also a blueprint whether themes that we can do here in Tennessee, to help it do better on our report card so to speak and turn you better for cancer constituents let's jump into that then as where you look at some of the factors that control health. And, how states are doing as far as respond to the health needs of the residents maybe painting with a broad brush but I feel like a lot of the states that are probably Doing better on the high end of that spectrum are the ones where there are a lot more democratically controlled positions as far as the elected officials go because it, seems like that may be a. Higher priority here in Tennessee of course more of a Republican state I am I am I going to be over assuming things if I say that Tennessee might be on the lower end of the fifty states, won't win, when you sort them out I don't I don't want to make this into a partisan issue obviously people get cancer I come across cancer that are both Republicans and. Democrats of course we believe that our policies are nonpartisan. That everybody. Should be. Advocating for policy is to help people prevent cancer as far as you know how that makes Tennessee ranked I'm not sure necessarily that being a Republican controlled state Is what negatively impacts us I would say more along the lines of just our overall health in Tennessee that we are typically. Not as healthy as some of our other state counterparts I'm particularly. Around smoking issues we have a high rate of McKean, and we don't do as much I think maybe state funding wise with tobacco control programs with cessation programs that sort of thing so I think maybe as far as. Budgetary standpoint goes that's, potentially at a bit of a, disadvantage was early like a full one, through fifty ranking as far as the states and do. We know where Tennessee sorts out so in the report they basically measure nine different. Areas and you have kind of a green yellow and red ranking system for each of those areas green means that you've essentially adopted evidence based policies and. Best practices in that area a yellow means. That we've had some movement towards that or where partially on meeting that benchmark and registered in a red shows that we are falling short I'm in Tennessee We have. Cue green benchmarks out, of those nine and then we, have three yellow and the rest are, bed so the majority of the areas that we measure. In this report are that we are falling short which means there's plenty of room. For improvement that's certainly one way of we can look at it but that's definitely how I see it what are the things that the two things that. Tennessee's doing well The two things that. Tennessee is doing well and this is the first year that we've actually gotten. A green of this area Edison. State, appropriations for breast and cervical cancer screening programs for fiscal year two thousand seventeen and eighteen the benchmark for that is that the state appropriation is equal to or greater than thirty three percent of the CDC funding and past legislative. Session of the general assembly did make a significant. Investment in that program and so- Tennessee did gain a green. Rating in that for the first time so we're very pleased with that obviously access to screening programmes, arresting several cancer are crucial to detecting the. Cancer early and hopefully getting treated most successfully and also, get an treated at the at a. Lower cost Mark than if it was later in the disease? Progression The second part place that we bought the green was that we have established a statewide expert advisory council for palliative care in Tennessee This, is.

"Eight zero eight one zero so we were just talking to the American Cancer Society right and Just tell you say their cancer action network you prevent cancer but how about this how would we stopped poisoning, ourselves why. Why is this such difficult concept for one five eight hundred eighty eight ten because we just got the news today that a court band has. Ordered the Trump administration ordered them because they're like look, peck? Can't Yeah because who doesn't think that's a good idea Trump the, court ordered it. Was the night circuit? By the way told the US? EPA? To ban Clark purifies within sixty days major victory, for environmentalists not just environmentalists defeat for interest you wanted a cheap pesticide right super cheap super vailable Ben around since nineteen sixty five long before, I was.

Grow cotton here, this is the. Truly makes no sense to me that we grow cotton, in California we have water, issues, cotton Rizza super water-intensive crop you flood the field flood field to grow cotton That makes no sense it's that's where you. Do it along the Gulf Coast, retired steamy and. There's tons of water available never understood that anyway An attorney with Earthjustice EPA scientists that concluded in two thousand sixteen that the pesticide was harmful to farmers and their children and could be. Dangerous to those eating the foods grown with. The goal children ages one to two years old, were particularly at risk where was the American Cancer, Society on this one Were they. Defend were they fighting for that no they weren't, I know because money is involved too much money Why. Don't we follow? The precautionary principle you just? Heard, Tim Gibson. Whoa science based scientists in Europe don't follow it Wrong what. Do you think about it four one five eight hundred eighty eight ten the precautionary principle is in article one ninety one of the treaty on? The functioning of the European, Union, is a core part of. The e u Recourse to the precautionary principle presupposes. That potentially dangerous driving for phenomenon. Product or. Process have been identified in that scientific evaluation does not allow the risk to be determined with sufficient certainty Glyphosate anybody roundup The implementation of an approach based on the precautionary principle should start with a scientific evaluation as complete as possible, and where possible identifying at each stage of the degree of scientific uncertainty The European Commission of course. Says it needs to be reasonable grounds. For concern about, potential risks glyphosate Clark purifies many others I remember fighting way back when I lived in Minneapolis Minnesota I lived in farm country I actually lived out in the country at one, point we're getting into a fight with my state legislator Over atrazine Which is an. Herb aside and it, was, like wait this. Is new you haven't really studied it and we suspect it's actually causing problems with the frogs and remember all the frog deformities Yeah Yeah it's linked to a number of serious health effects is an endocrine, disruptor and he was, like, yeah but farmers have to use. It. Okay you can't come up with any. Alternative can't come up with any. Oregon nobody can farm. Organically we can't come up without. Turnips the things are poisons that we actually know are poisonous to. Humans I'm, I can't believe how, many, people are totally cool with yeah. I'm. Happy to be a Guinea pig we. Don't actually know that this is. Safe it doesn't have. To be a hundred percent proven. To be safe we just have to be pretty sure of it That's the. Precautionary, principle reasonable there must be reasonable grounds. For concern well let's see glyphosate well when. It was approved by the FDA a number of the claims made. Have been shown to be untrue should be reviewed Oh. My gosh this is within. E u law who also has scientists. By, the way precautionary. Principle, is seen as more complex and dynamic, than the principle of prevention which addresses of course better understood risks to the environment So the precautionary principle and the EU at. Least has been applied to a diverse range of fields including health protection environmental regulation biodiversity, management and, emerging tech some of the nano-tech It's really easy and I don't. Know why so many people are against it hey I'll just dump, chemicals, into me and hope, for the best okay 'cause. Our, body wasn't meant to deal with, it at all you're hoping that your liver is able to. Handle it four one five eight hundred eighty eight ten Casey in boulder creek Casey you're Brancaccio with, Ethan Bearman hey, you guys, want to, do something about. Obesity in this country And chancery children you'll go back to the Seventies. Kids to leave their house Go out and play every day Didn't worry about him and I drink a lot of soda when I was a, kid and I was always skinny but, I wrote my bike every day Gland over. Mountains and did, all sorts of things. Somehow we have a generation of fear that children have to stay at home to be protected, you wanna do something get moving again So that's. Not cancer that's obesity bay appreciate the call Casey so, we didn't have some. Of these chemicals back then I just said clerk purifies was invented in one thousand. Nine hundred sixty five, so it's really important to note the, difference between obesity which I totally agree, that's, refined, carbohydrates are consumed and a much higher rate, than they used to be and by, the way when you drink milk as. A kid it wasn't skim. Milk in nineteen fifty seven Casey it. Was whole milk or full fat milk which, had a much lower glycemic load much lower sugar. Content than today's milk so obesity is one thing cancer is something else I'm talking about childhood. Cancers are up dramatically by the way Dramatic The survival rate is up dramatically as well because we have better tools for dealing with, the but why get it in the first. Place and that's why I keep saying we should have the precautionary principle like the European Union does with scientists because I'm sick of being told like this clerk purifies we've known for a long time and it actually took the ninth circuit to, say you're going to have to ban it because Trump and profiteers, say I don't give a crap if you have a chance of getting. Cancer I'm gonna make an extra buck. Today you might get cancer in twenty. Years that's not my. Problem that's. Yours and somebody down the road I'm gonna kick the can down the. Road you probably also conservative that gets mad at politicians for kicking the can down the road on things like. Pensions if you're okay with that by the, way I'm consistent on that I want. To kick the can down around let's address issues now in our faces must address. This big one and start moving towards the precautionary principle like the EU has done l. let's have a little.

"For joining us tonight good afternoon lorsch i wanna ask you about this smokeless tobacco now i will admit i always tell my audience if i have a dog in the fight i smoke a cigar now and then i've never been a regular cigarette smoker matter much smoke one or two cigarettes my whole life use smokeless tobacco so there is an important admission that's been made by the american cancer society about the different kinds of tobacco we know that the surgeon general half a century ago said that smoking cigarettes is associated with cancer but what if we just come to learn from the american cancer society about smokeless tobacco well cancer society researchers had just published a paper where they list the seventeen causes of cancer that can be modified that people can change and it goes from cigarette smoking at the top like everyone knows all the way down to an obscure virus at the bottom which only causes about a thousand cases of cancer what they left out smokeless tobacco that is chip excuse me dip and chew products so this is the first time the cancer society has acknowledged that the products don't cause cancer now since you work in the field of tobacco harm reduction research i want to ask you about this because we've talked about this on the program before we've talked about the fact that vaping in the united states is treated under the laws the regulations against smoking in virtually the same way that cigarettes are even though i'm told that vaping and those kinds of activities produce almost no risk of of of cantors or at least is dramatically reduced and in great britain my understanding is that those those other ways of consuming nicotine or consuming tobacco are actually encouraged if people will change from smoking cigarettes to something that's a less dangerous form whereas in the united states health authorities tend to say we don't want any tobacco use in any form whatsoever are we cutting off a possible option for people to be able to get away from the very dangerous active smoking and move to something much less dangerous whether it's smoke less or vaping as as a form of taking nicotine and should we be doing that as a public health move absolutely lars the deal here is that it's the smoke that causes the cancers heart.
