And in addition some of the other research we did was around. Exercise and showing that exercise is beneficial to atrial fibrillation. But as we all know too much. Exercise can actually have an adverse effect and this again was a study that was done by tony acer who was also an electro physiologist and his now at nyu worked with me for a while. So both of those manuscripts were very important. With regards management of atrial fibrillation. In addition we also published one of the first studies looking at alcohol intake and h fibrillation. Now there have been multiple multiple studies showing that alcohol is related to atrial fibrillation. And as you know a randomized trial now that shows that if you abstained from alcohol you lower your risk of atrial fibrillation so all of these studies are not just by myself but multiple.

"In vehicle City, General Motors, Flint and the strike that created the middle class 10 clone is with us just he will get to your college is a couple of minutes, but I wanted to ask you some more. Questions Ted about, you know, kind of what came out. You know you mentioning Amazon and people facing a lot of the same issues today that they face back then, and I think it's very interesting because of course, we want people to make a decent wage and be able to work. A decent job. Not be driven crazy be driven to exhaustion have carpal tunnel syndrome and all of these things that tend to come and but it's It's very interesting, though, because the way that General Motors used to dominate their industry, right And then you mentioned I think that they currently employed about 10% of their the workers. They once did Amazon right now, the way they're dominating is by beating into submission everybody else by being able to offer the lowest cost on everything and skimming, you know the onion, so so thin on what they're going to pay and what they're gonna you know, chart and all these things and part of the way they're able to do that right is by making people work. For as little as they can get away with as long as they can get away with, And so unions help even that out for the person working there so that they're working a decent job, But it also creates all these other challenges for companies, and I guess that's just the cycle that it probably should be A company, you know, does whatever they can to get ahead in. Labor has to fight back to make sure they're not being taken advantage of. And then other people finally get a chance. Maybe to you know that. If ever everybody unionized that worked at Amazon that would level out of playing field I would get, I would guess quite dramatically. Yeah, it is even about money. I mean, there was a situation last year there. I think it was that the Amazon for somebody to make Kim Lee Park where the workers were demanding safer working conditions, you know, because they were there working during covert, and Amazon's business sure boomed during covert, because everything everybody's ordering things online. And a lot of these. One of these workers who are finding out their essential are among the lowest paid workers in our workforce, and I think they're going to be demanding. They're gonna be demanding more now that we depended on them, and they put themselves at risk. During this pandemic. Yeah, Um, talk to me a little bit about the strike itself, because whenever we see movies about unions and strikes like this, we see a lot of clubs and baseball bats and the people going head to head Did that happened here? It was pretty dramatic there. There was a new incident that I devote a whole chapter if you called the Battle of the running bowls on this was when the company turned off the heat, and they said, We're not allowing food into one of the occupied plants, and then it was attacked by the police. But you know the workers were ready. They had laid out all these door hinges on the window Sills and they threw them at the police and they sprayed the police with fire hoses and the police retreated. They started they started shooting and they wounded. 14 workers, But the workers stayed in the plan, and they considered it a victory. They called it the battle of the running balls because they made the bowls, which was a slang term for the police at the time, they made the Bulls run. And after that happened, Governor Governor Frank Murphy, who I mentioned who was later Attorney general, and a lot of Supreme Court, he sent the National Guard to Flint. And you know he could have. He could have legally use the National Guard to enforce a court order to make the workers leave the plants, But he just said, you get between the police and the workers and make sure There's no more violence, and I think that's another lesson of the book is when you have government officials like Frank Murphy, and then I also mention Franklin D. Roosevelt and then at the time the secretary of labor was Frances Perkins, who was the first woman to serve In the presidential cabinet on Do you know when government takes the size of workers? You know workers, workers prevail and I think we have a more level We have a more level playing field economically. That I've got a little history for you here. We've got a caller Dusty, Who's Gramma actually witnessed the strike Dusty, You're on with Ted. Hi. Well, it's not me that witnessed it. It was my great grandma, who's now 100 years old and in Florida, she went in the strike. So she lived in Flint. Yeah, well, And in fact, I'm 1/5 generation GM employee. I worked at the Flint Buick plant as well. But when that strike when it became evident that the strike was gonna end and have the final settlement, she was a high school senior. And her her high school debate. Team coach had a connection in the Chevy plant, and they allow her in so that they could, you know, get some pros and cons for debating well, little did they know what history was being made there, But she was absolutely silent and she just a few years ago, she said. They want job security for they are weak safety standard, lastly, scenery so that they had a place there. But you know, here it is 2021. They're still a living witness. This old lady in Florida and I had a close family friend who was who was a sit down, striker. He died in 2013. He was 98 years old. And, hey, he was the guy who started off making 25 cents an hour on the retired 40 years later, making $27 an hour. Um on do you want to be 98, which is a testament to how good GM health plan is. So you know, I considered him uh, you know, beneficiary and an example of the prosperity that sit down strike brought to a lot of General Motors employees? Yeah. Quarters for a reason. When I was there in place. We I worked with a guy who worked there since World War two. So he was an old old man, but he was still there he was making Wow. Okay with you. Did you? Were you working Buick City? Yeah. You look pretty okay. Are you still are you calling from? Flynn argues in Chicago now. I'm still in Michigan. I'm in the upper peninsula, but yeah, Flint was it, you know? Yeah. College Anyway, it was great WGN signal gets into the upper peninsula and gets all the way to Canada. Thank you very much for calling us saying really appreciate that. You think about Thanks Dusty when you were saying, ted, that your friend Family friend was making. Did you say $27? An hour when he retired, and this was in 1976? That was That was good money. Yeah, he was a tool and die maker. Man. So he was raking it in back then? Yeah, yeah. Yeah, and a lot of houses. You know he would write about the college students, and he actually kind of became a local celebrity. They call him the tooth Fairy because you know he liked a flirt. You know, with waitresses and anybody else, and he noticed that this waitress at his favorite pancakes up was just always covering around. You said. What's wrong and she said, Well, my feet are terrible, safe and and she and he asked how much would it cost to fix your teeth? And she said $14,000. So you wrote her a check for $14,000. So that's the kind of money this guy had come from from working in a factory Well, and so all right, So that's interesting Everything about that, Because here's a tool and die, man, It's It's a skill. But he didn't go to school forever. He didn't you know, you could see you could see the argument from the other side that you know the Union of the Union did a great job for him. And for those workers, you could see where GM is saying. We got a tool and got guy guy who's writing checks for $14,000. This is where we're spending too much money. We have to fight back harder..

"Well the country in the world's talking about it. I want to start with one year colleagues <unk>. Shop and i want you to listen to so much. Answer this question to <hes>. Jennifer schneider <hes>. She's quoted as saying the following things. Virtual healthcare is growing. It's getting to the point now. You're not going to hate it. What does it mean to you when you hear. A clinician say to a group of patients were consumer class. That you're not gonna hate this anymore. What comes to mind. And how does this relationship solve that problem of disliking the care you were getting going to the big parking lot paying the seven dollars and a park having to walk through the labyrinth dodging david bowie on the way to your clinic and finally getting there to see who you needed to see what comes to mind there when you hear jennifer say that it. It's a great summation of. What would i have felt that has been broken. Healthcare for past fifteen years. As i think we also s consumers in this marketplace obscene seen how content has been reorganized by the internet how communities have been reorganize how entertainment commerce more recently even <hes> banking. When was the last time that you actually stepped foot in a bank. And so this this notion of you're gonna drive twenty to thirty minutes to this obstacle or building <hes>. and then ended up waiting an hour at least <hes>. I think comes an hours like a a gift to see physician. Pretend to fifteen minutes us. We'll give you a whole bunch of information that you're not gonna process <hes>. And send you on your way driving back down twenty or thirty minutes in some cases i haven't come back again. You know in two or three days or a week is you've got to get lab tests. Imaging tasks don seem so <hes>. You know sort of disconnected from how we live our lives today in terms of the immediacy of the things that were able to get it all at our fingertips and so <hes>. I think this is what jennifer was talking about it. I think you alluded to just so nicely is the experience of inter connectivity through now wearable sensors software that personalizes methodist to you <hes>. And always on connectivity <hes>. Through the cloud <hes> <hes>. Starting to make its way into healthcare and covid nineteen is only accelerated people's view in notion of what's possible in healthcare that today was just a method or a vision it is absolutely accelerating ed <hes>. From everyone we've been speaking to <hes>. And of course you are walking this walk on the acceleration happening before we're ready <hes>. So it's really an exciting time. It also can be a harrowing right if you're not prepared for loot when you hear jennifer say consumers and patients aren't gonna hate healthcare anymore because they're they're access the can get what what comes to mind view especially in terms of telecom. Bunga sure so. I think that people often talk about. How virtual care makes access so much easier and they often frame this in terms of a conversation around what you might consider medical convenience <hes>. And i'd like to just draw out the issue that it's not just a question of convenience. It's really around the quality of care so on telemedicine side we see many individuals who seek care and they end up having pretty serious medical problems like a recent case where the individual <hes>. Actually had some big chest discomfort in our little shortness of breath and ended up having multiple blood clots in his lungs and he would have just probably waited it out at home with really a life threatening medical condition and on the longo side. You're really talking about individuals who for the first time in their lives are taking care of these problems around blood. Sugar control blood pressure control. So they're really getting the care that they need because we've made it easier for them and have lowered a number of these barriers which are traditionally put the place and may care most difficult and as you might imagine during the time of covid. All of these issues have been highlighted. So if you are at home trying to do your telecommuting also trying to teach your kids at the same time who might be doing their own remote learning. It may not be the easiest thing for you to decide that you need to take you know a bus to a train to train to bus in order to get to a medical appointment to have somebody review your blood sugars with you so to make that care possible particularly in this time just makes all the sense in the world.

"That says science Friday high my replay to- inactive ingredients you've seen them on the back of that bottle of aspirin. You have at home or box of allergy medication. You're purchasing here is zoom right by them. Right. As you're looking for the dosage or list of side effects. You don't give them a second thought. Because what they're called inactive ingredients. That means. They don't do anything. Right. Well, a lot look a little bit closely at those inactive ingredients and you'll find they include things like peanut oil lactose and gluten and in fact as a new study out this week shows over ninety percent of medications have. Active ingredients that a really active that can cause allergic reactions in certain patients here to tell us what to make of all of this is one of the authors of that study, Dr Giovanni Traverso assistant professor at Brigham women's hospital hovered mid school and the department of mechanical engineering and MIT Dr traverse a welcome back to science Friday. No, thanks so much for having me. So what else is my blood pressure? Medication? Not that. Doing for me. Besides the medicine it self what what compounds kind compounds you find in these inactive ingredients. I mean, I think it's really fascinating. I mean, what what will you find that? This was sort of is something that, you know, I came across a few years ago, and you know, one of the things that we set out to do in. The study is really analyze exactly what else is in there. And you know, an average we find that about seventy five percent of tablets and capsules are actually occupied by these inactive ingredients. And I'm, you know, typically on average they're about eight other, you know, ingredients in in in that capsule and sometimes up to thirty five, and you mentioned earlier, you know, their ingredients like lactose, sometimes starch, which can be wheat derived. So hence, the potential for gluten in some instances also even peanut oil, but you know, many other, you know, they're over a thousand chemicals that can won't continues from you know, to really help make that that that capsule. So why did the pharmaceutical companies if they know this kind of stuff? I mean, they know that people are allergic to lactose, and we peanuts. Why did they do? They put them inside the pills. I, you know, I think one thing that really emphasize here is that the these inactive ingredients are actually really important. So I think by no means always adjusting that they'd be removed, and they play a critical role with respect to this ability of that tablet, or capsule, you know, the appearance potentially, you know, modulating taste or even enhancing absorption, or even, you know, preventing tamper proofing, and you know, likely the reason that we have some of these ingredients is, you know, for his talk historical reasons, where we've seen some of these work to actually facilitate the the, you know, those parameters in in in in the pills. But certainly as awareness increases, you know, it's something that I think we're all starting to appreciate hopefully, more and more. And I, you know, I think hopefully, we're getting more focus around what should be included. And can we find alternatives in some situations? And you think that there are alternatives that could be -absolutely, you know. And if you take drugs, you know, dr- drugs that are now, John. Eric, for example, members all which is used for the treatment of reflux or also treatments. You know? There are many different formulations of map result. So for example, you know, the physician like I will prescribe let's say members all twenty milligrams once a day or twice a day. But that the at that does, you know there there can be over thirty or forty different formulations of of a map result twenty milligrams and my formulation. I mean, you know, the composition of the inactive ingredients. So you one might find ones that have lower amounts of lactose or no lack those and others that may have lactose. And so, you know, certainly there are alternatives, and and, you know, for some drugs there are many alternatives for others are few, you know, sometimes when I go to the drugstore, and I have a medication limb..

So why did the pharmaceutical companies if they know this kind? Stuff. I mean, they know that people are allergic to lactose sweetened peanuts. Why did they did? They put them inside the pills. Yeah. I think one thing that really emphasized here is that the active ingredients, actually, really important. So I think by no means are we suggesting that they be removed, and they play a critical role with respect to this stability of that tablet or capsule, you know, the appearance, but actually modulating taste or even enhancing absorption or even providing tamper-proofing, and you know, likely the reason that we have some of these ingredients is know for his talk historical regions, where we've seen some of these work to actually facilitate though, the, you know, those parameters in in in the pills. But certainly the weirdness increases, you know. It's something that I think we're all starting to appreciate hopefully, more and more. And I, you know, I think hopefully, we're getting mellow more focused around what should be included. And can we find alternatives in some situations? And you think that there are alternatives that could be absolutely, you know, and if you take drugs drugs that are now. Generic, for example, which is used for the treatment of reflux or also treatments. You know? There are many different formulations of America's also, for example, you know, the physician like I will prescribe let's say members all twenty milligrams once a day or twice a day. But that the at that does there there can be over thirty or forty different formulations of of America's all twenty milligrams and my formulation. I mean, you know, the composition of the inactive ingredients. So you one might find ones that have lower amounts of lactose or no lactose and others that may have lactose. And so, you know, certainly there are alternatives, and and you know, for some drugs there are many alternatives for others are a few. You know, sometimes when I go to the drugstore, and I have a medication lamb getting in the drug has, you know, I have a different manufacturer is making that same drug, and we're using that now that could have other ingredients in it that I'm not used to from the first drugstore from the first pharmaceutical company. That. That's exactly right. You know? And I think, you know, I mean, myself included and colleagues, you know, we've we've seen situations where you know, similar experiences. Have you know, that that our patients have have had where exactly as you mentioned, you know, the manufacturer changes, and and actually manifesting and actually new symptoms potentially. And and I think that's hopefully by raising awareness that you know, there are inactive ingredients in these and capsules that they may be the culprit behind him. Speaking speaking of your colleagues when you found out the ninety percent of the medications had these ingredients in them. What was your reactions from your prescribing colleagues to this news? Yeah, I think you know, just to take that back on the ninety percent piece are one of the things that we recognize of these inactive ingredients is that they can cause adverse effects, and generally we group them into two groups one is allergic reaction to that sort of Frank allergy as we recognize them today. Whether it be in the extreme like, an NFL lactic reaction Iraq. And then on the other side is sort of intolerances like giant says on the allergy side what we had identified in. This study from the literature is that there are at thirty eight ingredients have been associated with allergies. And if one ask the question, you know, what percentage of capsules contain at least one the answer is indeed, you know, over ninety percent. But I think one thing to emphasize is that those events are rare. But nevertheless. You know, they they are out there, but they are rare. So, you know, I think people still recognize that these events are rare. But you know, I I think just again, I think it's all about raising awareness both at the patient level, and at the healthcare provider level, and I think, you know, I it's it's changing I think how we think about the prescription process and access to the information. So let's say I'm concerned consumer is there any place online that I can check out what you know, what I should be worried about is there a resource. Absolutely. So I think you mentioned at the beginning certainly in the drug insert. So you could check through the tax than you will find some of that information. There's also a database out there called pillbox that has some of that information, you know, but for both know there are a few steps to go through at least arrive at that. And it's one of the things that we see as potentially helping both patients and healthcare providers is developing tools to just make it easier to. To really help identify those ingredients very quickly any even to help quantify the total amount of an ingredient to go back to lactose. If someone is taking let's say ten tablets to at least quickly, you know, figure out how much does that person is consuming from their their their medications alone. And so that's one of the next things were starting to look at. That's you said developing tools, but what do you mean like an app or something like that? Exactly. I think it's absolutely also systems to interface with the 'electronic medical record systems, you know, to really start to help quantify, you know, the the inactive ingredient components interesting.

So I don't know the curtains were drawn or if it was actually nighttime but just chaos, but they put it back in and obviously I calmed down. I think they had it for other maybe day and a half or two days when they took it out the second time, I think it was a little more prepared for it. So I didn't lose my mind to the same degree. But that was because Fisk out the took out the breeding too, but I still had the N G tube announce kind of a fight to get them to take that out. His you know, I was eating a whole ton because I I was traumatized. Yeah. But it's like it's hard to eat with the N D to feels ever got like a piece of spaghetti stuck in your throat. It's at same exact sensation on you can't swallow in you can't cough up ill. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You just have spaghetti in your all day all night. Yeah. Yeah. So and that was because eating with the N T too flaky you really get that sensation of on choking on something. Because you kind of are like it's in there. Right. Yeah. Bitch about enough that one of my nurses like wanted out. Let's take it out and just pinched it in like yanked it out, right then and there. She's like starting. Yeah. For feisty, nurses.

She just tried to cut me off to Rica faster, foster Bradsby. I am here. Hopefully, China Robinson. We have a lot to get to in this podcast. So I'm not going to talk your brain off right now in the intro. Yes. I do have a lot on my mind. But I'm gonna talk about it with Rebecca Lobo. That's right. The hall of Famer Rebecca Lobo is our guest today. And we talk about lots of stuff. I mean Rebecca's everybody knows. She's funny. She's witty. She's just she's Rebecca she's a model for kids. And she looks amazing. What is my excuse to Rica? I couldn't even. Do. I don't know how she finds all the con-. She like she. She's a fantastic A-List. She's a she's a wife, she her and her husband had a podcast. We talk about that. She has four kids like she works out. I can't even do two out of five of those things. I'm barely making it with two out of the five of those things. I'm barely at analyst. Okay. Much to start with. Anyway, Rebecca's on the show, and we will recap big Monday between South Carolina, Missouri. We're going to preview Notre Dame Tennessee and just hop around a little bit. We get Rebecca spots on Yukon. And just what she feels like is happening in the landscape, a women's college basketball because it's crazy right now. Absolutely crazy. So sit back, relax, wait a minute. I should have did the escape version kick off your shoes. And relax feet, y'all have one little in Atlanta. And now everything is Atlanta's wait a minute. We're is the Super Bowl of from by the way, just really quickly. And I and I said this on Twitter for those that don't know. I'm originally from Boston Massachusetts. Okay. I was born there at Brigham women's hospital, and I'm one of sixteen children. Right. So there's a lot going on in my family. But the bottom line is that my family is huge Pat fans on both sides because my mom and dad both spent a majority of their adult lives in Boston. My mom actually was born and raised there. So. It's just you know with the Super Bowl being in Atlanta. I was praying that she's would win. I soon as Tom Brady put the boat on that thing. My phone starts ringing. You know in my family. Listen, we're not some Boston proper. We're from Roxbury. We're from Japan from bore Chester. Okay. My phone's ringing. Everybody wants to stay at my house. It's not happening. Okay. I don't even like the patriots. Thank you God. Like the patriots cheated. And I don't care how long it was ago. They so I've never forgotten. I'm not a big NFL person. You guys know, I don't love football. I love basketball, but three Rica's football. And I just was upset that that game went to overtime in that Kansas City. Never even got a chance to score. What kind of overtime is that? You already know my feelings on the patriots. And if I want the fans to still continue to like me, I should probably keep my opinions to myself. Oh my goodness. Well, all I know is that I don't see how you have in overtime. You flip a coin to see who gets the football. And then if that team scores, that's it. Time left on the clock cares. Something like that. It's that's terrible horrible come up with some new rules. Anyway, that's enough for football time to get to the basketball. We hope you enjoy our conversation with Rebecca Lobo. And no, you cannot stay at my house or the Super Bowl. I was the belt to. No. All right basketball fans will one thing I promised you was that I was not going to rely on my limited knowledge of what's happening in college women's basketball to keep you guys updated because we have so many people that know much much more about what's happening than I than I do. So I'm excited to have one of my good friends. She's a hall of Famer she is one of the best people that you really will ever meet. She's a mom. She got a podcast with her husband.

"In newborn care is giving infants a better start in life and could improve Americans health far into the future at the same time. Researchers getting new insights into genetic and environmental influences on the fetus, such as mother's obesity or exposure to toxic substances and a growing movement to provide better postpartum care aims to help. All new mothers better care for themselves. And thus their babies Wall Street Journal freelance contributor, Laura Landreau says all of which may not only improve health during pregnancy and infancy, but for years to come Laura explain well, one of the things, you know, the March of dimes, but you've probably all heard of it's been around forever. They're funding these six prematurely research centers, including one at Stanford University. And so they're they're trying to identify the causes of premature birth and one of the things they're finding is that you can go back to a blood test. Simple blood test. And that blood test will help you determine whether this particular mother is at risk of delivering a baby too early. And that baby, you know, obviously, if it's boring early is going to be at higher risk. So what they're trying to do is figure out if we notice women at risk. Let's figure out what we can do to prevent it to slow it down. You know, they actually have certain drugs that can prevent women from delivering too early. However, those drugs they don't always know who to give them to. And by the time the woman starts to deliver. It's too late to give them a drug because the navy's coming out. So that's one of the issues that that is very much in the forefront. Another thing that happens is that babies are born prematurely and their their little brains can be injured they might not have enough oxygen. They have lots of reasons that their lungs aren't fully working or their brains are a little more vulnerable. So even if you're a full term baby, for example, decision just premature baby. As even fulltime babies can be deprived of oxygen in blood for just a few minutes. You know, they can up with seizures. They can go on to develop cerebral palsy and other developmental problems. And then there's that risk of long term problems. From brain injury learning disabilities. There's a lot of evidence of this. So they're looking at ways to more carefully monitor those babies as their as the weather's getting closer to earth. And as everyone speaking with Wall Street Journal freelance contributor, Laura Landreau. Her piece is called the new improved world of infant care. She's got a look at the technology that is helping babies these days. In the story to you mentioned genetics and epigenetics right genetics. We all know the full genome people are getting it's getting a lot easier and less expensive to sequence the entire genome of of every person, and if you're a baby born now, you'll get a little blood test. It's the he'll stick and they screen for about thirty conditions. You know, things that are immediately of a risk, you know, problems with digesting milk or something like that. But what they're talking about doing now at places like Harvard, affiliated hospitals the national institutes of health. It's funding this, and they are looking at how you could sequence the entire genome it's called baby seek like baby SEAQ, and they're exploring whether is this the right thing to do. First of all is this the right thing to do to parents want to know what Rick star baby might be might be or might not be at risk for down the down the road in the future. So they've got about three hundred and twenty five families, and basically they're random ising them into just getting regular. Tests or getting the genome sequencing, and they're going to try to follow the kids 'til they're eighteen and the idea is we're going to predict conditions decide what medications we can use in the future. If we know you're at risk for heart disease. Maybe we're going to go much more carefully into checking you every year, you know, there's so many childhood onset diseases that can be caused by a single, gene. So if you are aware of that, it doesn't mean that child's gonna get it. But you know, to watch for things, you know, the pediatrician knows let's keep an eye on this baby. And you know, epigenetics is sort of it's kind of one of those complicated scientific things. It's where something that influences. The genes DNA from the outside and switches these chains on and off it could tell you something about whether you're gonna inherited trait like obesity. Wow. So if they're awake control genes could they switch those genes from obese to lean with changes that you could make drugs or supplementing the diet or other other therapies, if you know, the gene are kind of gonna predisposes you through. Something is there a way to fix that to to tinker a little bit with the jeans, and obviously this is all in the future. But this is what researchers are looking at now. You seen the pictures associated with your online story, but there's a picture of the this embrace system. Yeah. Brigham women's hospital in Boston. Yeah. Oh, it's it's looks like a voice perfectly molded to Holden infant. A little silo to what scan the brain. And completely wrapped in swaddled. It looks totally immobile and probably sleeping. Yes. Well, that's the thing. You know, what they've found is that studies have shown that MRI images can really help. Look at baby's brains to see first of all has there been a brain injury. Something you could never see outside and the child might not have any outward signs of a brain injury. However, if you put them in an MRI, you can you can see that miss Lawrence, Wall Street Journal freelance contributor, Laura Landreau, twenty two minutes now after the hour on this weekend..
