A Young Fire Spouse's Journey With Her Husband's Cancer Diagnosis
"A few episodes back we sat down with Diane Carter and she shared her story of her husband's line of duty, panther diagnosis, and her relentless pursuit of making turnouts safe and just exploring PFAS and all that fun stuff about exposure in the workplace. If you haven't listened to that podcast, we definitely recommend it. And today we actually have another first responder spouse, Brittany San Pedro with us to share her story about her husband's line of duty cancer diagnosis. Brittany, welcome. Thank you for having me. Brittany San Pedro is a speech therapist assistant, wife to a firefighter and a mom. She has been with her husband for 10 years and has an 18 month old and another one on the way. In late October of 2019, Brittany's husband at the age of 30 and 10 years into his career noticed a small lump on his collarbone. After several tests, he was diagnosed with stage two Hodgkin's lymphoma. He was the first line of duty cancer diagnosis in the history of Greeley fire department. Since then, many changes to screening and early detection have been made as a department. As a result, several malignant polyps, skin samples and ultrasound readings have potentially saved the lives of other firefighters within the department. Today, Brittany is sharing her story to help anyone who may feel alone or scared, especially after a health diagnosis. She also wants to encourage change and promote the importance of regular screenings and early detection. Okay. So tell us your story a little bit, the whole thing. We want to hear it. My husband came home one day and just kind of mentioned like, Hey, I got out of the shower at work and I just noticed I had a bump on my collarbone. And he's like, you know, I haven't had my yearly physical. I'm going to go in, have it checked out. And you know, none of us, we weren't really worried. And we were just kind of like, okay, he has a bump. We're going to go check it out. And his general practitioner ran blood work and then started him on antibiotics thinking it was just an infection. His body was fighting something and blood work came back fine. It didn't go down with the antibiotics. At that point, they did an X -ray. Everything looked fine. The blood work looks fine. And his general practitioner asked him what he did for a living. And you know, you fill out that survey, you tell him what you do. And he's like, you know what? We're going to, we're going to keep going. We're going to keep looking. If you're fine with that. You're a firefighter. It just makes me sit better if I, if I keep digging a little bit. And he kept going in for appointments. He then got an ultrasound done. After the ultrasound, he scheduled an appointment for a biopsy to have it looked at. And at this point we hadn't even heard the word cancer yet. I at the time was a special education teacher at a school across the street from the hospital where he was having the biopsy done. He texted me and let me know he was going in. He was super nervous. I let my co -teacher know, Hey, my husband doesn't usually have his feelings out like that. And lets me know that he's there. He's like, that's fine. Go. I ran across the street and he went back. Everything was fine. He came back out and then he just had this look on his face that I'll never forget his eyes started welling up with tears. And I guess the doctor who performed the doctor tech who performed the biopsy, you know, before his doctor had a chance to say anything told him, yeah, this is pretty typical for lymphoma. And both of us were just kind of like, what is happening? What's going on? We were hit by a bus. We didn't even know that this is something that they were looking for. And we called our closest friends, our little mini fire family. And we were like, Hey, we need support tonight. And in a minute, everybody was together at one of our friends house and everybody was just talking trash about the guy who stepped out of his scope of practice and said some things he maybe shouldn't have. And we were like, it's not going to happen. He's too young. He's healthy. There's no way. So a couple of days went by, we got a phone call saying that the doctor wanted us to come in, even though it was his day off and usually not a great sign. So we were a little nervous going in. And then when we sat down, he let us know that they, they did find it to be Hodgkin's lymphoma and that they needed to start figuring out what stage he was at coming up with a plan, trying to figure out everything. And we were both strong until they asked us, you know, are you guys, you guys are young. You guys just got married, just bought a house. Like you, are you guys wanting to start a family at some point? And I just started bawling because I already knew what was coming. And he said, I recommend that you reach out to a fertility specialist, if that's something that you would want to do. And you start reaching out to all your resources. And we did, after that, he started chemo in like less than a week. It was probably like four or five days. And he had chemo, he had it on Christmas. He had it, like he started in November, had it for about six months and then took a little bit of a break and then started radiation. And then after he went through radiation, his end date was March 14th, 2020. And then right after that, the next day the world shut down, but it was just, you know, for us, it was just amazing because he never, we never went to an appointment alone. It was just such a somber time. We were just had this dark cloud of stress and not knowing and anything. And at the same time when it was so dark, such a beautiful thing, because we had the department bringing rigs and down we packed that cancer center and, you know, we had some of his best friends, like his best man and another Lieutenant was there at every single one of his chemo appointments. And, you know, everybody kind of band together for him. It was kind of, it was a beautiful thing to see everybody supporting each other and making sure that he was never alone. You know, the Terry Farrell Fund reached out right away. You know, they did a cut it for cancer for him. It was just something that they hadn't ever experienced before at the, this department. And we were, we were just kind of overwhelmed with all the support that we had,

Brittney Sampedro on Husband's Line-of-Duty Cancer Diagnosis in Colorado
"So lymphoma is a very common cancer in the fire service, right? I did a little deep dive, maybe not super deep dive, but I definitely looked at some of the statistics for firefighters specifically. It's crazy. If you ever research it, which I'm sure you probably did at this point, the female firefighters, I did not know how like a 600 % increased risk of breast cancer. That's wild. Wow. And then firefighters have obviously a significant increased risk of cancer as they progress throughout their career. So at the 20 year mark, gets a little more at the 30 year mark, it gets a little more. So cancer is not uncommon in the fire service at all. But you said that the department specifically would never say for certain that it was because of his exposures to chemicals on the job or their gear containing the PFOAS. So was he eligible for any kind of benefit or anything from job related cancer? It's not covered under like a workman's comp type of thing. Colorado has something called the Colorado Cancer Trust. So it's departments that elect to put money into an account that say like, there's an eligibility criteria. He had been a firefighter at that point in 2019 for 10 years. So he was eligible to say like, yes, he's had enough exposure to have been at risk to have this type of cancer that is known or more common for firefighters. So lymphoma was on there. I know testicular cancer is a big one too for men. I didn't know breast cancer for women, but there is an eligibility criteria. They don't come out and say that this is work related. And the department and the everybody who works for Greeley Fire was amazing. They all covered his shifts. So he was able to go through treatment. He had to step offline for a while. And then when the pandemic hit, he kind of was forced to sit at a desk for a little bit just because his immunity was still really low. But I don't even think that there was something written out that like, what happens if a firefighter has cancer? It was just kind of like the guys, everybody at the department banding together and being like, I got your shift. I got your next shift. And they got it all figured out for us. But there was never like a, like, this is work related is workman's comp. It's a, it's a work related issue. It was kind of a separate, you know, like having the cancer trust and then having the Terry Farrell fund reach out to, knowing that it could be a job related cancer. So Colorado is not a presumptive cancer state then. Yeah, that's what it sounds like. And it's crazy to me that in 2023, after all of these studies that there are States that don't have that presumptive cancer legislation. It blows my mind.

Liberals Outraged by Children Surviving Cancer
"Well i read an article this weekend in the wall street journal and it was great and the reason i read it because i usually read the op -ed column and i'll go through the what's new section but that's really it then i go over to other sites but this one really piqued my interest it says good news on children and cancer i was like wow i gotta read this because i'm my afraid kids may god forbid hope they don't have this gene and the article is amazing it talks about how the death rate for leukemia which is the most common childhood cancer is down 47 percent in 20 years like my gosh that's amazing brain even brain cancer down 11 percent i'm i'm reading this article i want you to understand through not through a political lens at all i'm reading it it'll make sense in a second where i'm going with this but i'm reading this as a concerned person who had this disease and for a concerned parent too and i'm halfway down the article and i'm thinking to you know this is amazing and it hits me again how bad liberals really suck in what a cancer article by kids yes folks you're sane in the audience can we all agree what i just told you is a universally good thing kids death rates from cancer are down dramatically because of scientific advancements roy you're in the audience like who would object to that liberals no yes no yes come on yes no wait yes yes they're upset why because the same liberals that want to censor you bankrupt you put you in jail charge you with terrorism to walk into an open door in the capital fired from your job why you declared a nazi because you made a comment one day about twitter about liking donald trump they're upset because quote progressives are flogging the cancer reports finding that racial disparities in cancer deaths have increased mortality rates roughly were similar for whites hispanics and blacks in 2011 but progress stalled for blacks and whites they note that by 2021 the death rate for white children was 16 for blacks and hispanics you're like really that's that's bad we don't want that we certainly don't want kids to die because they're black or hispanic that would only be like an animal so not even an animal but a demon might have to wish for that oh and then we find out the reason so liberals are mad that more kids are living by uh surviving cancer why are they mad because there's still disparities what's causing them one possible explanation the story notes may be that medicaid patients lack access to premier oncologists and have to wait for appointments with specialists to get diagnosed there it is folks

A highlight from LST9 The Passion of St. Therese The Letters of St. Therese of Lisieux with Fr. Timothy Gallagher Discerning Hearts Podcast
"The asserting hearts .com in cooperation with the oblates of the Virgin Mary presents the letters of St. Therese of the suit with Father Timothy Gallagher Father Gallagher is a member of the oblates of the Virgin Mary a religious community dedicated to retreats and spiritual direction according to the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola He is featured on several series found on the eternal word television network He is also author of numerous books on the spiritual teachings of St. Ignatius of Loyola and the venerable Bruno Lanteri founder of the oblates of the Virgin Mary as well as other works focused on aspects of the spiritual life The letters of St. Therese of the suit with Father Timothy Gallagher, I'm your host Chris McGregor So this is May 9th of her final year she dies September 30th The symptoms are not yet at their worst. It's tuberculosis. It was tuberculosis that would take her life We've mentioned earlier from a very early age Therese, she had bronchitis every winter and she had whooping cough very often For several years the sisters had already noticed that her voice would get hoarse in the morning and in the evening Her cousin Marie who was the daughter of the pharmacist and whose letters are very helpful because she has a bit of the Doctor's eye and she describes more clearly than any of the others the symptoms Therese is undergoing as she's writing to family members and others They were worried. They could see that something was not right and a year earlier on Holy Thursday and Good Friday. She has that coughing up of blood Which almost incredibly was not taken as seriously as it should have been Now Therese herself to be fair in all of this Therese herself is in part if we can say this of a saint to blame because She minimized the symptoms she hid them as long as she could in fact when she had that bleeding She never said anything to her sister Pauline who only found out much later because she didn't want them worrying about herself and She struggled to keep up with the discipline and the the daily or Arrium and so forth of the monastery Carry out her tasks even at times just even to walk up the steps. She would almost have to stop at each step She would go through the day with fever and chills all of this has been going on but The symptoms will get to their worst in August where she has a month of excruciating pain But the tuberculosis is progressive and what it's doing is it's eating up the lungs and it's progressively getting harder and harder for her to breathe So a book by this Bishop whom I mentioned as perhaps the primary scholar of Therese He's not a dry academic he loves her and he writes well about her and with great knowledge This book is entitled the passion of Therese of this year, and it's by Bishop Guy Gaucher G -a -u -c -h -e -r And in one chapter in this book, he describes the symptoms that Therese undergoes with the tuberculosis So he entitles this section here from Therese words. I didn't expect to suffer like this. Oh Some of the remedies that were done and Therese bore them She knew they were going to be useless She's like her mother in this. Zelie never had much faith in the remedies The doctors would offer. Of course medicine was not at its present level at that time I'll only mention one of them which is just kind of hard for us to imagine It was called pointe de feu points of fire and what would happen was they thought to increase circulation to help the body a Needle would be heated to where it was red -hot and it would be applied to the skin of the person and Therese had this done several times up to 500 applications of these needles like this Now you can imagine the condition in which she would return to her her room or her infirmary the infirmary She bore all of these things, you know gives a whole new meaning to her expression about thousand little pinpricks. Oh My goodness, is that a possibility of something that I mean in that experience, I mean it gives it a whole new dimension, doesn't it? Well, it's really hard for us to imagine You know the kinds of things that end and diet foods that were just very difficult for her to eat and so forth You know it was and some other things I won't get into all the details But part of her martyrdom is really the only word for it Was the medical attention such as it was that she was given because she was also left without medical help At times when she desperately needed it and also morphine was available to sedate pain But the superior never allowed it now to be fair to the superior when she later herself She died of cancer a very painful death. She would not use it herself It was just considered something that nuns would not use, you know So it was not as though she was simply being cruel to Torres and although in effect it meant that Torres bore excruciating pain with no mitigation at all in these last months of her life But it was not necessarily out of bad will There were also other things involved There was a doctor who was the regular doctor for the Carmel and who was a friend of the superior and good man One of his sons was a priest But when he was away at times a family doctor that this actually was the husband that her cousin Jean married Could have come and helped but the superior just really didn't didn't want that So especially during that month of August when she went through the worst of her pain She had no medical attention during that time. Can I ask you this? I mean What would those sisters going through her blood sister is going through watching this? With this superior that didn't seem to be responsive. I It was terrible. In fact Surreptitiously on a few occasions they mixed a little morphine into drinks and things they did the best they could To try to help her in that situation. This was Torres of the child Jesus and of the holy face very much It's her passion. That's the title of this book that we're quoting So I'm just going to list the symptoms now these symptoms as I'm as I'm saying We're not yet at this stage in May when the letter that we're reading was written But they indicate throughout this time to res continued to respond to letters there was a seminarian Maurice Belair and The very nice book has been written on this by Bishop Patrick Ahern. That's Maurice resin Maurice the story of a love a seminarian who was really struggling Wrote to the Carmel asked if a sister could pray for him the prioress asked her as to do this So in this last year and a half or so of her life You have this handful of letters that he writes And then her response. It's always the same he respites rights discouraged by his failures He writes back to encourage him. God is calling you to be a saint. I know it you can do it But especially for this I'll just quote this one instance because his need was so great in the midst of these kinds of pains And with a trembling hand with the pencil Torres would write sometimes even lengthy responses to these people So that's when you read them on a page. It looks like they're nice Sedate letters that that was not the case All right to describe the symptoms of the tuberculosis So the bishop says fever and profuse sweating for six months So that does include this may that we're looking at Torres suffered from a fever which fluctuated Sometimes her back was burning like fire Sometimes she was perspiring so much. She became dehydrated Digestive troubles Torres suffered frequently from nausea often losing her meals even before she became bedridden The doctor prescribed milk for her. She had never liked it. She could not digest it She continued to take it forced it down knowing what would happen Respiratory troubles as the tuberculosis spread through the lungs Torres suffered pains first in her right shoulder and arms then in her left side the continual cough emaciation Strikingly when you look at the photos of Torres and this is typical from what I've read about this her face looks unchanged Her face looks healthy and all the photos that you see and in fact This was one reason why many of the sisters didn't really believe she was very ill to look at her She seemed fine So she didn't get a lot of sympathy from many in the Carmel as as she went through this But underneath the habit she was becoming a skeleton Normally the face of a person suffering from tuberculosis takes on certain characteristics, but Torres face remained almost the same Her voluminous Carmelite habit hid her thin thinness and her face was full Only her thin hands betrayed her That's all you could see through the habit and gave the lie to the healthy look and the emaciation itself caused various afflictions weakness powerlessness and distress People suffering from tuberculosis like this obviously would have deep emotional discouragement and depression and pain They did the prodigious remedies customary at the time but ridiculous today do anything to alleviate all this suffering Basically the answer to that is no that they really didn't do much Right, that's and of course add to this that Torres is in the heart of the spiritual darkness at this point Which is centered on? This sense powerful in her that heaven is not real that when we die everything is over and She is making more acts of faith as she'll say than ever in her life at this point She writes these lovely poems about eternal life the sisters comment on it and she says I am writing about what I wish to believe So she is this is a martyrdom, you know This is a passion that Torres is going through and that's the context of this letter that she's writing So this is the second Person this case already ordained a priest that she was asked to accompany spiritually and it was a father Adolph Rulong Who was destined for the missions in China where he actually spent 13 years? He stopped by the Carmel at one point can't say that he and Torres actually saw each other because the grill was in between Although they tried to work it so that Torres was the last one.

MMA Fighter Takes Down Knife-Wielding Attacker
"The video is in the article. The footage went viral several days later leading to Baez making an appearance on TMZ and explaining what happened before, during and after his altercation. The man was identified by police as Omar Marrero and charged with two colonies, according to CBS news. What he likely did not know was that Baez held a 5 2 -1 record as a professional mixed martial artist most of his bouts with fight time promotions. Baez also told TMZ that he holds a black belt in jiu -jitsu, wrestled in college, practiced and has kickboxing for 15 years. So generally, he's a very bad person to pick a fight with, to the one holding a knife. And as they point out, this isn't the first time someone has had a fight. He's a very bad person to pick including an attempted car thief against Kevin Holland, a great fighter, an attempted mugging of strawweight Palina Viana, an attempted car theft against Jordan Williams, a home invasion of light heavyweight Anthony Smith, a drunken swing at Hall Hall of of Famer Matt Serra, a nighttime break -in at ex -light heavyweight champ John Jones' house.

"It seems like our local GOP leadership, well, I'm not gonna say the conservatives, but the constitutionalists, they don't really care about the community. You never see community initiatives or outreach. And the Democrats and the socialists have that locked down. I mean, as much as there's crime and there's this and that, they're still out in the community kind of giving back. I mean, Mark Poloncarz was just at the Grider Street Community Center a week or so ago, giving out free hot dogs. And unfortunately, that's what people, the voters, the Democrat voters who do outnumber us, that's what they see. It's like instant gratification and they forget everything that's been done.

You're just so beat up. I mean, it's just, you know, it's like, you have to ask yourself, how could these people be this dumb? Well, how could you be this dumb? And it's not even rhetorical. Everything you've touched has turned to shit and you continue to vote for the same exact shit. It's just unreal. Because here's, this is just from a sleepless knife yesterday into today. People that left the cities, they're just like, I got to get away from the crime. I got to get away from the poverty, all the above. And their shitty voting has metastasized like a cancer in the suburbs. And it just keeps going and going and going. Well, they don't show up. That's what's so frustrating. Well, there's also that. I mean, you look at the numbers and it's like, how in the world do you not show up? I'm actually going through my phone yesterday. I'm saying, don't forget to vote. Don't forget to vote. Who's on the ballot? That's what I've got to think about. Like, how could you be that freaking stupid? I know.

It's back to back. Highest taxes in the country. And on top of that, the last one, because she's, again, the politicians, how they're just full of shit. Oh, that's our bad. You know, we're not even, well, maybe up for a second. Oh, we're not going to do another reassessment for two years and then literally the next year, here comes the next increase and all our bad, but we won't do it again. However, you got to pay. Yeah, sorry about that. And that's, and you look at the votes that were cast for supervisor. And I mean, again, how close it was and it'll go to recount. That's it? That's the amount of people that voted? Yeah, well, the GFP didn't do anything with absentee ballots there. So it'll go the other way. Before I forget, download our app, search Financial Guys Media in your app store and be sure to click notifications so you don't miss our weekly media drops. So don't forget about our app. Let me introduce Nancy Oreticelli. I was able to grab her. I know she's extremely busy. Nancy, what is your title today? Besides a miss of everything. I don't know, like, what is your exact title? You're everywhere, you know, constitution coalition, all this stuff. What is your, do you have a title? I mean, Antifa has called me a lot of things. So I know I work for an assemblyman, for assemblyman David DiPietro. I am on the executive board of the Erie County conservatives. I do, I'm the president of the constitutional coalition of New York state. So yeah, I do a lot of things. So that's who I am. I just, I believe in freedom and liberty and no matter what it looks like, I'm not a person who gives up and talking to a couple of people this morning, they're like, why do you sound so happy? I was like, well, I'm used to this. This is how it is here in Erie County. It's nothing new. It's not like - I know, you'd think all of us between the political environment here and then the bills and sabers, we'd be used to disappointment, right? We're like, let's roll out of that. Like, all right, I get it. Let me ask you, let's start out with the county executive race. I mean, what happened there? You know, you can't, first of all, he's literally, the cops are showing up because he's restraining a woman. We had people die in a storm because of his mismanagement. We had a record amount of businesses closed because of the way he handled COVID, right? I mean, you can't ask. And then he drops off all these illegal immigrants. They, 13 out of 50 of them get arrested and brought it up on charges. They destroy a hotel. I mean, it's like, okay, maybe you're not happy with Chrissy, but boy, you have to be some kind of a mental midget to say that's a good - And crimes on the rise. And crimes on the rise, record number. We don't want to enforce laws. Here's your appearance ticket. Yeah, number two in the entire country for Carstola. Number one is our neighbor Rochester. Number two, so what the heck happened? So people are misinformed. And it's like you just said, when you called and texted people and they said, who's on the ballot? Nobody cares anymore because it seems like our local GOP leadership are, well, I'm not gonna say the conservatives, but the constitutionalists, they don't really care about the community. You never see community initiatives or outreach. And the Democrats and the socialists have that locked down. I mean, as much as there's crime and there's this and that, they're still out in the community kind of giving back. I mean, polling cars was just at the Grider Street Community Center a week or so ago, giving out free hot dogs. And unfortunately, that's what people, the voters, the Democrat voters who do outnumber us, that's what they see. It's like instant gratification and they forget everything that's been done. And how do you defeat that? And I think the GOP needs to get out in the community more. I mean, they've had their get out the vote rallies that of consisted maybe 20 to 25 committee members. It wasn't the community. Do you know what I'm saying? And they don't - No, I get it. I was gonna say, but how - Nothing beats a good sailing hot dog. Yeah, here's your meat cylinder, go vote for four years and more tyranny. It's true, it's true. Well, that's, you're right. But the thing is, is, but then you take it a step further. You go fill up your car, holy shit, part of my life. That's even higher than it was a month ago. You go to the grocery store and our household, we do okay. But every time, between my wife, myself, and our two kids, and here's four bags, that was 300 bucks. Daughter, oldest daughter and my wife were down in Tennessee last week. My daughter was looking at the possibility of University of Tennessee. And she says to me, she said, "'Dad, do you know gas is a dollar a gallon cheaper there?' So I went through this whole thing about, you know, it's taxes. She's like, you're kidding me, just taxes. I said, yep, yep, that's the difference, difference between one state and the other. And every time somebody puts gas in their tank, it's an extra 30, 40 bucks here, as opposed to down there. So - So that's you and that's me, but that's not the urban voters. The urban voters are in poverty because of Democrat policies. But yeah, it's still vote that way. But they still vote that way because they'll come and give you free stuff a few times a year. They'll give you hot dogs. They'll give you backpacks. They'll give you this and that. A lot of them maybe don't have vehicles to fill up. Do you know what I'm saying? That's a fair point. But it's, you know what? Now that we're talking, Nancy, that also works against us too. I mean, we are top 10 in the country in poverty. Yeah, top three, I think. Per capita. Yeah, the city of Buffalo is, I think, two or three. Here's the, you know, our fair city. To your point, and I think you mentioned this, you know, the GOP will run on reducing the taxes. And Nancy, you said, these people don't pay taxes. That's true. That's not a problem for them, right? Although it is funny when you interview some of them, they actually think they do. They'll say, well, it's not fair. We're paying our fair share. Like, now you don't pay any federal taxes, and you don't pay any state taxes. If you look at it, and this isn't to be negative, but, and again, money's money. And let's just say they make $50 ,000, they're married filing joint. With your standard deduction, you're probably, you have $25 ,000 maybe in taxes total. Yeah, well, most of them. But that's what I'm just saying. And then you're probably getting a real fund. That's right. Most of them are public assistance. That's right. Talk about the women vote. I mean, you know, you look at other places, other parts of the country, and the women have really rallied together to really change things. And it just, you know, last night, I was really hoping that like town of Amherst, town of Cheektowaga, the women would step up and say, okay, we've got a guy who's clearly, you know, he's abused women. He's threatened a process server, a female process server that he's going to shoot her. And then the cops are showing up. I mean, well, I would think the moms would say, and it's amazing to me, I'm watching his speech last night, I'm thinking all these hypocrite Democrats, they're all, oh, believe the women, believe the women, unless it's a Democrat that can shove the left -wing agenda down your throat, then we don't believe them. So here's my take, two points I want to make. You know, talking about the women vote, I had a phone call the other week and somebody, it was actually Stephon, and he said, do you know a strong woman leader in Western New York who could do calls for Chrissy? And I was like, no, do you? I don't know any woman. There is no strong woman. I said, what about Lynn Dixon? They already had her. And I had thought about it. Mike, you probably remember a few years ago, I came to visit you. I wanted to start a women's group, but the coalition took off. And you know, if there's any women out there, women who would like to start a women's group, I'll help. I mean, I can't run it, but I'll help to get strong women elected. But there isn't. And then you have Moms for Liberty here in Erie County, but for some reason, the GOP will not unite with the grassroots organizations. Moms for Liberty have been phenomenal across the nation because the establishment has partnered with them. I don't know why they won't do it here. I don't get it. And if you would just unite, and it's the same issue with the conservatives and the Republicans, it's no secret we are outnumbered by Democrats. And so what happens with the conservatives and the Republicans who should be working together? The Republicans try to take over the legislature seat that was supposed to be conservative. You know, it was supposed to go to Lindsay Larrigo and they fought it with Jim Malcheski. I like Jim Malcheski and Lindsay Larrigo. They're both great people, but the GOP spent so much money on that primary that they had nothing to give to Chrissy to get her name out during this election because nobody knew who Chrissy was. And then they tried to do a party takeover in Evans where they switched a bunch of Democrats to conservatives, the GOP there did, to try to take over that party. And Ralph Larrigo did a lawsuit and the lawsuit is not finished yet, but the GOP candidate lost miserably. So they're focusing on things that should be uniting us, but they're dividing us instead of uniting. Look at West Connecticut and Lancaster. Those towns won amazingly for their town boards because the conservative committees and the Republican committees there are united and they work together. And I don't understand what the whole issue was with the Republicans trying to take out the conservatives this summer. It was baffling to me. So instead of focusing on Mark polling cars, you're gonna try to take a legacy away from a conservative candidate that it was already in the bag for them. You're gonna focus on a fight that was already a constitutionally minded candidate that was in there. It was a given, what a waste of resources and what a waste of time. That's a shame. Yeah, that's a shame. Absolutely. Well, the financial guys are here to help. I'd like to get you on the radio as well. We'll find that, hopefully we can find a strong female. That's what we need. You need the female vote. I mean, last night, the female vote shows up because Mark had been called, accused of holding a woman, I don't know, hostage or whatever. I mean, holding against her will, but they didn't show up. And they're like, God, that's so frustrating. The last thing before I let you go, the frustrating part to me and folks like Ron is we're in the business community, right? And so we're constantly getting involved. We're constantly trying to do our part. And sometimes I feel guilty because I look at somebody like you and I'm like, oh, I feel like a slug. But yeah, like, oh man, I really do. But the business community, I am just at awe this morning that they didn't show up at all. I mean, at all. How many restaurants did Mark destroy during COVID? How many gyms did he destroy? Now, some of these folks were strong enough to make it through, but I'm gonna be honest with you. If I owned a restaurant, I am never forgetting that. Now, I might be a little bit different of an animal because his picture and Gal Bernstein's picture would be on the front door and there would be a message that says, hey, if you're these people and you're walking in, do not bother, right? I mean, that's where I would be. But I get it. Some of these folks say, well, you know, I don't wanna be that aggressive. Okay, could you send Christie a hundred bucks? Could you put a sign out front of the restaurant to say, hey, just saying, I mean, like, not one. Well, that was the fault of the GOP, that they don't know how to fundraise. They really don't. And like I said before, their fundraisers consisted of just their own committee members. The public doesn't want anything to do with the GOP because the GOP has alienated them. Now, Michael Crocker is a good guy. I've met him. I've worked with him. He's really good, but he's got a lot to fix from the previous leadership. And yeah, I wouldn't want that job. I know. I know. You know what? It's funny you said that because I was talking to Glenn about it and Glenn's like, oh, they needed this. The hardest part about that is so many people have left. When you look at, and I'll say for America, I think it's a great thing, right? I mean, Florida is gaining delegates. New York is losing delegates. Florida had a $21 billion surplus. New York is going to go bankrupt at some point. I don't know when, but the math doesn't work, right? You cannot have the, and the 25 % of people that have left, they're all the top taxpayers, right? They're the ones paying the bills. Mike, this all sounds racist. Stop. That's right. Math is racist. But I mean, that's, even if the people that leave and, you know, from clients and friends and family that are in these Southern states, they still care, but they got up and left. Oh yeah. I mean, it's just - Well, they're not voting, right? They're not participating. Even if voting, but like, even if they've sent a check, like you said to Chrissy, but that's just the whole thing. They're gone. They're gone. I know, but you have, for the people, and I guess maybe this is where my deficiency comes with this, is that I'm like occupying common sense, I guess, way too much. But how the hell do people, again, you look at this, this sobering statistics or drive around the area, what the hell is coming here? Nothing. What is leaving here? A lot. A lot. What is beneficial that is derived from low -T polling cars? Let's just go over the last five years, the scandemic. How many people were affected by that? And how many businesses were lost? How many people, again, how many people have been Vax injured? Because, well, I can't go to the Bills game or the Sabres game, but seriously, I'm gonna roll up my sleeve. You were able to see the playoffs wave, but now you got my old car died. Or, again, my employer's forcing me, because this shit bag in City Hall is following crime wave Kathy, or Andrew, I killed your grandmother, Cuomo. Then you take it further. How many people died in nursing homes alone? One of my best friend's sister died in a hospital alone. Why is that, you may ask? Oh, because she tested positive for the Wuhan sniffles. Yes, I know. And these stories are out there. Yeah, I know. And yet there is zero messaging. And this is from Chrissy. This is from the GOP. This is from any Republican candidate that you can absolutely, and again, voting aside, fundraising aside, but if you got that message out there, debt would resonate. You need money to do that. You do, which is fair. And you need lots of it. I said from day one, I said for Chrissy to win, she probably needs a million bucks. And I think that's a fair number. And I think she got a total of about 150 ,000 from the business community. She was well, well, well underfunded. And I don't know, I was down there last night, I don't know if you got a chance to see her speech last night, but you could tell she cared. There was a few conservatives are sending messages, oh, she can't cry. I'm like, bullshit, she can't cry. She can do whatever she wants to do. You have the stones to step up. Then I was able to see her in the hallway before I said, Chrissy, that she's like, oh man, I feel like a failure. I said, Chrissy, I said, there's a million people in this freaking town, a million people. Do you know who was the only one that stepped up against this piece of shit, Mark Poloncarz? You. So don't let anybody ever tell you that you shouldn't do what you wanna do. There are so many armchair quarterbacks that oh, I should have done this, should have done that. I'm like, Chrissy, you're the only one. Guess what? Mike Lomas could have ran. I could have ran. I could have signed up. I didn't. Now - I feel like I told you to.
Intrusive Questions for Child-Free Women With Niamh Madden
"Is an interesting thing, isn't it? About like intrusive questions. And I had a lady on talking about fertility, and it's the same there. Like, you have no idea why a person might not have a child. And I think some of these questions, while like well -intended and often from our nearest and dearest, it's very, it's very hard to answer. I'm kind of curious, do you talk openly to people? Like, would you say I'm like, I don't have any kids? Or would you say I don't have any kids and I'm child free from choice? Like, how have you navigated that? So tricky. I mean, I've changed my answer so many times over the years. And we've had like conversations about this. We do an online thing called the Conversation Cafe, where we pick a topic. And one of them was, how do you respond to the question, do you have kids? And what I love is there's so many different answers. I mean, I think I would have been very defensive or like, oh, no, I don't. But like, I have nieces and nephews and like, that's enough for me, you know? Or no, no, no, I don't. Like, oh, I'm not sure. Maybe someday, you know, I used to kind of excuse myself because I wanted people to like me in that moment. I didn't want the person to be like, oh, that's awkward. Or it's even like, I don't drink anymore. I gave up drinking a few years ago, about four years ago. And there's always this thing of like, oh, you don't drink. And I'm kind of like, do I go into the ins and outs of why I don't drink? Or do I just say like, oh, I'm on it. I have a health kick going on or whatever. So it is. And I understand, like, they don't mean as an intrusive question. I think that's like you said, it's like small talk. It's like people making conversation. But I guess they've never been through either fertility issues or something like that. When I started the group, I interviewed women who were child free by choice and who were child free, not by choice. And one of the women had had cancer treatments, so she was left, you know, infertile as a result. You know, but if someone asks her, oh, do you have kids? Do you want kids? Like, how do you even go into all that kind of traumatic experience, you know? So I think people are well meaning. But like that, wouldn't it be great if we could like have some sort of small talk that doesn't always revolve around, oh, you're a woman. Do you have kids? I don't know if men get asked that same question. I would doubt it. You know. Yeah. I just don't see it. I actually think one of your co -organizers in Sisterhood mentioned that on a podcast that you did with Margaret O 'Connor, which I'll also link that in on her resources because she runs a podcast specifically exploring people's decision around having children. But I think she said that she had changed jobs and her husband had changed jobs around quite similar times. And she had been asked multiple times if she had children. And I don't think he couldn't remember one time that he was asked that. But you're right. I think I kind of feel there is like maybe we need to start thinking about like asking better questions. What are your hobbies? And even I think like that's probably actually something that would lead to a better conversation anyway, wouldn't it? Like knowing what someone does for fun. Yeah, definitely. And like that, it's a more open question rather than a yes or no. Do you have kids? Yes. No. Do you want kids? Yes. No. Like it's and it's funny. I don't know why we feel embarrassed to ask that question. Like I would be embarrassed to be like, so what are your hobbies? But then what's wrong with that? Like there's nothing. You know what I mean? I think it's a shift. It's a transitionist from like the usual conversation maybe in Ireland that you might have with someone to like unknown territory. I remember when someone said to me once like, oh, how do you spend your time? And I actually didn't know how to respond because I know rather than being like, what do you do? Or, you know, where do you work or anything? It was it was actually a really nice question, but I was so bamboozled. I was like, I don't even know where to begin. And I think I just said, you know, you know yourself. This and that. Like, you know, so yeah, I think it is a really interesting point. It's like, what are those conversations we can have that aren't intrusive but are like help you build a connection? And I was listening to a podcast on small talk recently. It was like, we all know we have to get to the small talk, get through it just to have that connection. But it can feel uncomfortable and it can be like that. Like it could be something that triggers someone or it can be something that's totally natural for someone else. Like, oh, do you have kids? Yeah. I do. Yeah. And do you? And, you know, so it just depends, I think,

Republicans are frustrated with how little information the Biden administration is releasing on the so -called humanitarian parole program. Part of the problem we've had is getting the administration to provide the accurate statistics so that we as the policymakers can know exactly what's going on.

Michigan Doctor Celebrates Hamas Terrorism
"Know, we've talked a lot about cancel culture. I wonder if a doctor who is in an important position at a hospital in Michigan celebrated babies being burned alive and the massacre of so many Jews in Israel. If a doctor who's responsible for treating all patients, including one would believe, Jewish patients, if such a doctor who celebrates terrorism should be fired or not, Dr. Majd Abourdaria is the medical director of the Karen Wilson Smithbauer Comprehensive Center for Breast Care at Beaumont Hospital in Dearborn, Michigan. Sounds like a very impressive place, the Karen Wilson Smithbauer Comprehensive Center for Breast Care, women who have breast cancer. All kinds of health -related problems could be treated by this particular hospital. And Dr. Majd Abourdaria is the hospital's medical director. On October 7th, as a response to the massacre in Israel, Dr. Abourabia, I think is the right way to pronounce her name, Abourabia, she couldn't contain her excitement, her pleasure, her joy. She posted characters from the musical Oklahoma with the caption, oh, what a beautiful morning. Oh, what a beautiful day. And then she added hashtag I -F -K -Y -K. That means if you know, you know. That has been regarded as sort of a dog whistle among the pro -Hamas vermin in the world. If you know, you know. Well, Dr. Majd Abourabia has been terminated from Beaumont Hospital in Dearborn, Michigan. Is that cancel culture? What's a Jewish woman supposed to do? What about anybody who's Jewish who has to come in contact with filthy bigotry, the likes of which we're witnessing all over America right now? This is extraordinary. This is absolute extraordinary, something I've never thought I'd live to
A highlight from ROLLUP: SBF Found Guilty | Solana Dominance | Celestia Airdrop
"Hey guys, a note before the episode today. On Thursday evening, that's November 2nd, Sam Bankman -Fried was found guilty of all charges. So that's all seven counts that he was charged for. Now we've recorded this roll -up episode before the verdict dropped. David's in Europe, he's likely asleep so we haven't had a chance to talk about this, but I'm pretty sure I speak for him when I say it feels so good to end this painful chapter in crypto. One year and five days ago, we hosted SBF on this very podcast on a debate with Eric Voorhees on crypto regulation, and it was an absolutely legendary debate. We arranged it after we heard from some friends that SBF was up to mischief in DC. Apparently they said he was greasing the pockets of lawmakers and working with them on a crypto bill that would make DeFi front ends virtually illegal. Effectively, this would be pulling up the ladder for decentralized finance and accruing more power for his exchange, for FTX, and doing all of this under the auspice of practicality. I remember the debate well, and at times it felt like SBF was almost giving us a lecture. We crypto natives didn't understand how to work with governments. Our values weren't practical, they couldn't win, they were too rigid. Here was a billionaire wonder kid who built one of the world's top exchanges in less than four years. What did we know about building business and getting things done in DC? This is the tone of the conversation. Equally, I remember Eric Voorhees with eviscerating arguments and monkish precision. He argued to Sam that crypto is an open, permissionless financial system for the world. It's like the internet. It's like email. Any society that rejects this technology is a society that rejects fundamental freedom. I felt like Eric's moral clarity pierced through the bullshit like a knife through butter. And David and I watched as SBF absolutely withered under this approach. One thing struck me at the time. It seemed that crypto had made a grave mistake in entrusting so much to people like Sam who didn't share our values. I was so happy to trade them off in some calculated game of maximum expected value. But what I didn't know at the time was how grave that mistake would be. SBF, during the time of our recording, was actually covering up one of the biggest frauds since Bernie Madoff. By that point, at the end of October in 2022, he had gambled away over $8 billion in customer funds. I don't know what his long -term plan was. Maybe he was hoping for some way to last long enough to win it all back. Maybe he didn't have a plan. Maybe it was all hubris. But 11 days later, it would all start to come crashing down. I still, to this day, have no idea why he showed up to this debate 11 days before the fall of his campaign. The debate itself may have been the spark that took him down. I mean, he must regret doing the podcast now, because in the hours and days after the debate, the crypto community turned on him. There was this sense of betrayal, of high alert, and it didn't take us long to sniff out the truth of his fraud. Massive credit to Coindesk for breaking the story of the Alameda balance sheet. Everything followed from there. Now, he's declared guilty in a US court of law after hurting many people, doing incredible damage to this industry that we love. I'm thankful we have a legal consensus process in the US that afforded a fair trial and due process. I'm thankful that justice has been served. The values of SBF, and many of those like him in 2022, were stage three cancer that we had to cut out at some point, because if they persisted much longer, they would have been terminal. I'm thankful for the bear market for giving us the opportunity. I know that criminals and scammers will visit our industry again in the future, and I hope those of us who live through SBF will be wiser the next time. But above all, I think it's important that we remember the true hope of crypto. It's not in another set of bankers like SBF. It's in decentralized finance. It's in holding our own private keys. It's in running our own validator. It's in Ethereum. It's in Bitcoin.

He did multiple Chronic Lyme Disease Summits, and the Parasite Summit, Viral and Retroviral Summit and the Mitochondrial Summit. He's also the co -founder of the retail supplement line Microbe Formulas and the practitioner supplement line Cellcore Biosciences. I know my team, we use the Cellcore Microbe Formulas products and they're fantastic. We really love them. And so, Dr. J, welcome to the summit. That's great to be here, David. I just love the content. I mean, you've just to give you props for the listener. I mean, you've put together and researched and put together content for so many years and just so thankful for that because it's helped to change so many lives. So just really appreciate all the work you do. Well, thanks so much, Dr. J. And I know we go way back. We knew each other in graduate school when we were going through and getting our degrees in chiropractic and functional medicine. And it's great to see how far you've come. And you're really a leading voice in the functional nutrition, functional medicine world. So I appreciate everything that you're doing. And let's talk about the liver. I know you're passionate about this vital organ and it's a major area that you look at when you're working with clients. So what is the function of the liver? Yeah, I love this organ. I mean, you mentioned it's a lifeline of the body. It is a detox system, essentially, of our body. I mean, you have our kidneys that also have some function in that too. But the liver is really that primary thing. So most people know that the liver does phase one and phase two detox.
A highlight from Toxic Beauty: Unmasking Hidden Dangers in Our Skincare, Haircare and Beauty Products
"This is the Art Beauty podcast where we are always reaching for truth and beauty. Remember the brands on this show are not paying to be here so we get to have those honest discussions because you deserve to be informed so you can make the best choices for yourself. With that said, I'm Amber and today my fabulous co -host is Christina Marusik. She is an award -winning journalist and author of A New War on Cancer, The Unlikely Heroes, Revolutionizing Prevention. We will be talking all about that a little bit later in the show. But before we get to that, welcome. So happy to have you here, Christina. Hi, thank you so much for having me. I'm excited to be here. Okay, so in case anybody's watching this and not just listening, it is Halloween, my favorite holiday. I got my friend Bones here. And you know, in the spirit of Halloween, and because we're gonna be talking about something that is a little bit spooky, but I hope eye -opening, I thought this was a very appropriate topic for today because we're gonna be talking about some of the dangers that we need to be looking out for in our beauty products, in the products that are probably in our cabinets. I'm a little scared, but I also hope that this is going to be enlightening for everybody. So Christina, you know, you spent a lot of time going and interviewing people, figuring out some of sort of these, the chemicals that might be affecting us. Can you tell us a little bit about what prompted you to write your book? Yeah, I came to this book through a very personal experience. When my younger sister was 25 years old, she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, and that's very young for a cancer diagnosis. It was really scary and unexpected for her and my whole family. We're very close. I was living far away abroad, teaching English at the time, and when she got her diagnosis, I moved home. I moved in with her to help out while she went through treatment and surgery. All of that went really well. My sister has been in remission for 10 years, and she has two super cute kids. I love being an aunt too, and she lives close by, so now we get to hang out all the time. I know that she was one of the lucky ones and that that story doesn't go that way for everyone, unfortunately, and when she got her diagnosis, her doctors told us that thyroid cancer usually runs in families, but no one else in our family had ever had it. No one has since, and they said in this kind of off -handed way, oh, you know, in that case, maybe there were environmental factors. Maybe she was exposed to something that could have increased her cancer risk, and when we asked follow -up questions, they really didn't know much more. They didn't really have answers for us about what that might have been or if it could have been prevented, and when we went Googling on our own, we also had a really hard time finding more information about that, and I'm also an investigative reporter, as you mentioned, and so I took that question into my work, and I wrote a multi -part series about how the area where we live in Pennsylvania has disproportionately high rates of a handful of cancer types that are strongly linked to pollution, and this region, we live in Pittsburgh, still has problems with industrial air pollution and industrial water contamination, and then that series won a couple of awards, and I got a really nice note from a publisher saying, hey, congrats on your awards. I think this issue is really important. Would you have any interest in turning this into a book with a more national scope? And so the book very naturally followed, and I learned a lot, a lot more than I knew at the time of my sister's diagnosis, for sure.

I know a lot of people, a lot of kids in school get pretty portly from beer, you know, because there's so much sugar and beer. So everybody, this is Carrick with ACG and we are here with the live best gaming podcast number 419. Got a bunch of rumors, Spider -Man stuff, celebrating gaming order here to change the game a little bit. That's my plan is to make it a little bit more about celebrating gaming for friends talking about titles, talking about good stuff that almost sound like I said, talking about titties, but talking about titles, talking about games, titties, enjoying ourselves, hanging out, boobies and games. We should have an entire podcast just about boobs. There's a bunch of stuff. Actually. Oh, yeah. Definitely. Other shit. They were all they were just talking about tits, dude. Yeah. Yeah. Sometimes it gets a little horny there. Sup, everybody? Thank you very much. Carrick should honestly do audiobooks. Maybe I will, man. Maybe. Maybe I'll read a couple of audiobooks, make some money on the side. B Sparks is in here. Josh Carey, a herpa, a herpa is in here. I don't know what that means. A herpa. No. A herpa. Dye Phillips is in here. Hush out ghoul as always. Welcome Deon. Jimmy Dean man. Bunch of people I see all the time, which is pretty, pretty crazy. Make sure to tweet out that we that we're doing this if you want to. And if you don't want to tweet out anyway, damn it. Let's see. Let's start. First, let's start with what we've been playing. Jay Mann, Jay, Jay Meister, full arena, Jay Perry, the source reps. I haven't talked to you all week about what you've been playing. I think I've either seen silver or seen Abzi talking about, but I don't think I've seen anything from you. What are you? We haven't talked this week. I think in the discord. I've been playing a lot of Lords of the Fallen and I know, you know, there's been a lot of negativity around it and I get it. It does have some issues, but I do think it has a lot to offer that, you know, has some cool mechanics that I've been discovering things that the game doesn't write out, tell you you can do, but you kind of naturally discover like some stuff, for example, you know, you, you could put on the lantern so that you see the platform that only exists in the world of the dead, then you get on it and then you remove the lantern and it goes away. So, so then that allows you to maybe drop in some hidden places and find loot and stuff like that. And there's a lot of mechanics around that. So it's not just a gimmick, you know, it's integrated into all aspects, even combat too. So certain bosses will have different reactions to those lantern abilities and some of them unexpected and, you know, can really help turn the tide as well. So it's, I think, very clever. A lot of cool stuff there. I do have to say, though, I don't know how you guys feel about like souls stories. There's something about it. Every single time I jump into it and I'm like, dude, I'm excited, right? I'm going to read every description and then that lasts like two hours and I start skipping dialogue. I just like there's something that's like Lords of the Fallen has bad VA, right? You know, it's I would say it's hit or miss. There's some good ones, but then there's some pretty yeah, pretty like, you know. What are they? Are they I'm reading at a at a table read sound or is it not fitting the character? It is kind of like found it in a couple, a few, a few. You know, there are some really great ones. That's the thing. So it's kind of like hit or miss. And the setting is great, is very interesting. It's awesome to explore. If you like getting lost in the world and figuring it out and stuff like that's awesome. You can get in there, do all that. But I got to tell you, the new game plus is basically unplayable to me because you don't have bonfires in new game plus. Right. Yeah. We did talk about this. So you have to create them, right? Well, but here's the thing that doesn't work because you can only have one bonfire that you create in the Umbral world. You can only have one at a time. So the whole point of the bonfires is not as much as a checkpoint. You know, when you kind of learn the game, it's more a way to traverse the world effectively. Without that, there is a central hub that you can kind of cross between places, but there is a great deal of backtracking you're going to have to do and trudging through areas over and over. That sounds like not fun. Yeah. I don't know why they did that. That could be a cool mode, like a challenge mode or something, but I would never play the game in that way because I love traveling back and forth like, oh, did I miss something here? You know, let me go back farm that location that was really useful, right? I like doing that, you know, quickly. People in chat, do you feel the same way? I would say for me, in game plus, I like the switch ups. I like that people are doing different stuff with Starfield and you see that that is true. Yeah. I mean, that field based. That's pretty hard. That's pretty that that's like in game plus, plus, plus at that point, like that's pretty rough. They did warn us. They I do remember us talking about this about three weeks ago where we had seen the post about the end game plus having that. So I mean, it's what it is. It is what it is. Yeah. Has that been it? Lords of the Faun? Yeah. And I played a little bit of Spider -Man today. Little bit of Spider -Man. OK, we'll talk about that in a second. What about you, Silver? What have you been playing? Nearly exclusively Cyberpunk 2077. I started a new playthrough on the 2 .0 patch and some of the Phantom Liberty content. I really like a lot of the changes to the 2 .0. I really like that grenades and health packs have become cooldown items now that they're not like consumables. I think that flows really well into the game's combat system. I really still enjoy that the different builds and different gameplay aspects, whether you play as a netrunner or stealth or like gung ho, they're all fun. This playthrough I focused on being gung ho, so like ripping off machine guns, instagipping people with machine gun fire, which gets really, really satisfying and really, really fun. So the multiple ways to play it, it's become one of my sort of favorite games to pick up and play. It runs beautifully on the Xbox Series X by now. Absolutely gorgeous game on there, particularly in the display mode. I forget what it's called, like the fidelity mode, whatever it is. Don't mind playing it in 30 FPS, it runs and plays fine in that for me. The game just looks absolutely gorgeous in it. But I am disappointed that like for PC, they haven't addressed the key mapping issues at all in the 2 .0 patch. You still do not have full key mapping functionality for Cyberpunk's PC port. That bugged the shit out of me. I had to do a mod for that. You can't remap keys for like the netrunning and stuff like that. It's really, really bothersome to me, particularly as like a key accessibility feature that you should be able to remap your keys for PC port. Yeah, sorry about that key thing. Did you find that when you're talking to people in dialogue and you can walk at the same time your W and S while you're walking changes the dialogue option and there's no way to change that other than a mod? No because I don't use W and S for movement, I use the arrow keys. Oh, does the arrow keys not change the dialogue options? I didn't find that. I always use the mousecroller. I didn't tend to use movement a lot. Yeah, you had to do like an I and I edit to stop that from happening. Also, I don't actually use keyboard and mouse for Cyberpunk's PC version because of the lack of key mapping features, so I use gamepad for it. Yeah, there was a lot of bothersome stuff when it came to keybinds, 100 % yeah. I also played some Spiderman 2 today. What about you, Abzi? Yeah, I played some Spiderman 2, but my highlight this weekend, honestly, is modded Red Dead 2, dude. Last podcast you told me about a couple mods and I went ham, there are so many fucking amazing mods for Red Dead and it just completely changed the game for me. It's like I'm playing the game and I'm like, this is a benchmark game overall. This is a game that no game has reached the levels of in terms of detail and immersion, what you can do in the game, especially with these mods. So I downloaded some visual mods, a visual overhaul and all that stuff. I also downloaded this thing called PED damage overhaul, so enemies are no longer squishy, you know what I mean? So it's like, even you, you know, I was going to point that out both ways, low TTK. It also does it so that the enemies are less accurate, like more, more believably accurate. And while they lose health, they lose accuracy as well. And they bleed, right? Didn't you say something? Oh, yeah. So the other one I got was, was all shots cause bleed outs. So now like, like bullets cause people to bleed. The big one though, is the W E R O, which stands for something, but it's euphoria somewhere in there, which improves the ragdoll mechanics and everything, the locational damage reaction. So if you hit someone like in the knee, he goes like to the ground and kind of holds his knee and stuff as opposed to like your stomach or whatever. And it's really, really accurate. It's insane. Another one is immersive scenarios. And that one is fucking crazy. You talked about it last time. Yeah. Incredible. Yeah. It lets you do any activity that an NPC can do that you can't because it was locked to the NPC. So you could like lean out a wall and smoke a cigarette. You can interact with like every item you can see. It's very, very contextual. Like you can do a lot, but what, what really surprised me was how detailed it is. It was, they carried through the quality of detail from rockstar into the mod. So like, for example, like when I sat down around a campfire to light this cigarette, wasn't just an animation of him smoking a cigarette. He rolled the cigarette and started smoking. And when I pressed end, I expected the animation to just end and go back to walking normally, but no, he kept the cigarette lit up, held the cigarette with him as he was walking. And then a new contextual thing came up where I could smoke wherever I want. Like there are little things like that, depending on where I'm looking, because where the camera is, is where his face is looking. So depending where I'm looking, he smokes differently and all the, all the animations work properly. It was fucking insane, man. Immersive scenarios it's called, and it's really, really well done. And then I got a crime and law rebalance, which rebalanced a lot of the wanted systems and stuff like that. I basically made it so that if you hit someone with your horse, the cops aren't going to come after you. There are a lot of different, like improvements. PETA ran that game prior to that mod, man. Yeah, exactly. You bump somebody with your horse and it's like, oh, what are you doing? The world came after you. Yeah. And then I got some gameplay ones such as I can rob whatever bank I want. And I can, I can purchase houses and I can also, you know, the system of the, the bounty hunting system. Now there's like a couple of quests of bounty hunting in each town and made it an, an emergent what do you call it? A radiant thing. So like you can keep just doing bounties if you want. Yeah. So fucking amazing. You can go to Nexus mods or like they have their own, own mod website for tech. There's just a lot of really, it just heightens the game all around. It's awesome. That's very cool. And then Spider -Man. Well, you said Spider -Man. So you did Spider -Man, you did Red Dead, anything and then anything other than those two for the most part? No, that's it. Other than that, like my, my big game this month that I'm looking forward to is Alan Wake too. So I'm just, I'm just passing time until that comes out. Yeah. Um, Brandon has an amazing, probably the best super chat that's ever been asked. So we got to go over this. He says, would you rather get 1 billion to never masturbate again or 100 every time you masturbate? That's such an easy answer. That's an easy answer. Come on. Come on. I'd be at a billion pretty quick, but yeah, billion pretty quick. Plus you also, you also have, um, income that is reliable and you can do it whenever you want. It's a job. It's a job. Yeah. You're like, I got to make 200, 200 bucks today. So this is a tough month. We're going to allocate some time here. Testosterone's low. I'm just not feeling it today. I mean, dude, I can make a thousand a day easy with that. Oh my God. Okay. Well, there we go. Um, anyway, uh, amazing, uh, super chat even at a thousand a day that we're still taking quite a while to reach a billion math on that one. Yeah. Yeah. Let's not throw the calculator up. Hash, uh, how shall Google $5 super chat? If you can choose a radioactive animal or insect to bite you, which would you choose? Oh, but you choose the power you get from that. Okay. Cause I was saying, seriously, if you just get bitten, that just suck balls. But uh, yeah. Okay. So you get bit by a road beetles or a, Oh dude, Bombardier beetle that shoots acid. Hell yeah. Hydrogen peroxide. Like the poop beetles, the ones that are just like curling poop, that's your super power. You can just like roll poop really well, dude. I'd be, this is the honest truth, man. I'd probably turn out looking grosser than I do now, but score, I'd probably a scorpion and I grew up just awesome stinger or something like that. Or maybe you want, you want a, well, he didn't say you will grow one because Spiderman didn't really grow eight or eight arms either. You know, I think someone would be like, yeah. Or bite them, I guess, but I always liked scorpions, man. Scorpions are frigging awesome. Like, uh, but what about you guys? Is there any animal that you or platypus man? Cause those dudes are incredible platypus, man. I want to get bitten by a rabid dog and then I want to be afraid of water. That's my power. That's useless. That would be legitimately useless. You would just be a dirty mangy animal actually hindering you. You just explained chupacabra. No the joke was that it was rabies that I wanted to get rabies. You would be, you would be inflicting rabies on enemies, dude, I'd get bit by an elephant and amazing have memory. Yeah, I'd get bit by an elephant and just be like, yeah, eidetic memory or whatever. Just like sperm whales are pretty goddamn amazing. Sperm whales are also ultimate boss battles in the, in the deep between giant squid. Oh dude. Oh, a giant squid getting bit by like a squid would also be pretty cool. Squid man. See, that's the problem is we don't know what you would look like afterwards. That would affect. That is otherwise it would go like, like somebody said, an eagle. It's like, yeah, I mean, it, you know, if you want to look noble and shed, it probably would be enough by a sperm whale and become captain they have. Yeah, well, true. Yeah, you still look human. When you look at all the like Batman, you know, not in other than the fear of bats and stuff like that, especially as a child. It is interesting though, that most of the time they don't, you know, the villains are the ones that get mutated the worst. And you can sort of tell that when you look at it, it's like, so it depends on how much you mutate. Like I said, Spider -Man didn't grow eight arms. You know, he built the suits that do that or people built suits for him. But yeah, different animals would be very cool. I mean, it's like that's the crux of what, 90 percent of superheroes, maybe not 90. But yeah, a lot of them. Yeah, a massive number of superheroes. It's always about animals and stuff like that. But anyway, the radiation thing, right, that you see that so much, dude. Yeah. And it's like like real life radiation. You just get cancer and die. But in the in the comic book, you go green. And yeah, I remember it's like in an old Spider -Man comic, like there was like a male section where people were mailing questions for like one of the editors. And there was a funny question. I still remember where how Sandman got his powers, whether he wrote a radio active sandwich. Oh my God, that's actually a good idea. There's a Chevy Chase movie from the 80s. I don't know if, you know, none of you guys probably know that other than maybe Silver, but he has radio radiation hit him and he gets powers. And at the time, he like uses it to have sex with a woman, uses these powers for all this crazy stuff. And I remember even as a young kid going, dude, that's not how radiation works. That's not OK. Yeah. It's sort of retrain myself to not take it serious because I love Chevy Chase. But even as a kid that didn't pass the sniff test that I think radiation, it was probably after Chernobyl. And it's like, you know, so it's like it's post Chernobyl kind of stuff. But prior to that, oh, sure. I thought, you know, radiation, man. It's like or, you know, gamma rays, gamma rays. Yeah, that's exactly what I was doing. Gamma rays. And you're like, oh, do gamma rays. I love Samuel L. Jackson says that when somebody says, oh, it's just gamma rays. And he's like, gamma rays can be dangerous. And it's just like a double a double awesome hint. Reptiles can grow back tails. Some people are talking about that. How about a rabbit? I could be so cute. You just die from looking at me. Get bit by a crocodile. Crocodile. What? What is it? What is he just called? I mean, you have croc killer. You have killer croc. Thank you, Batman. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Wait. Something like weird popped into my head. It's like a very, very weird type of thing to say, like a stoner type of thing to say. But Batman, has there been like a vampire Batman comic thing? OK. OK. I'd never put two and two together like he's a bat and vampire. It wasn't based on purely that. It's the one where the virus I just talked about it in discord about six months ago, I started reading it. But it's where this vampire virus spreads across everybody. And so they all get it. And Batman is trying to save people. Then he gets it. It's not infected. Does anybody know the name of that comic line? Because it's a massive comic line. So anybody in chat, you know the name of this comic line, but it's a massive comic line that involves that. I don't know if there's been separate ones, though, you know, like or where he truly gets bit by a vampire. But you do have a saying. Is that right? Mm hmm. No, Morbius. Morbius. No, that's that's the other one. That's the movie. With man bats. The other one I was going to bring up. You came and left so fast, dude. That meme was like a five minute meme. Yeah. The morbid the morbid time, Morbius. And people posting gifs of the whole movie on this literally they go the whole movie in a gif. Really? Yeah. I never saw that one. That was Jared Leto, right? Yeah. Dude, there was also I don't really have an issue with him. Every single Star Wars movie in the gift, but like 10, 100 X speed or something. Oh, really? Just super. That's just like the whole all all my movies, people ruin people. People try to ruin stuff a lot, man. I saw it with the last bit. Deceased. Yes. Thank you very much, guys. Spike the bloody deceased. And it's honestly it was very. Yeah, exactly. I knew it. You know, dude, I want to see like a Vladimir to push like Dracula, Dracula crossover, where they join up. They take join up. Yeah. Oh, deceased is zombies. You're right. You're right. You're right. There is a vampire one then, for sure. But the one you guys are right. I'm talking about deceased because they're tearing superheroes in half. Like it's basically the boys kind of thing, you know, where they go that extra step. So let's talk about Spider -Man. So we've all played it. Yeah. First of all, what are you guys thoughts? We'll go we'll go with the length of time, the shortest first. So Johnny, you played at the shortest amount of time, right? Sounds like just a little bit today. Couple hours today. So what a great first impression. Yeah, right. Go for it. You know, I really like how those guys do story. There's something about it. It kind of flows really well. In all of their games, I've had this thing where you can kind of go through it and have a great time, even though we talk about Mary Jane and we give her a lot of shit. And I do think in this one, she seems like, again, it's very early, but I didn't get that big manipulative vibe that you talk about from the first one last game. Yep. Right. Yeah. So in this one, it's like, you know, okay, we're a team, you know, let's make this work because Peter is in tough times or whatever. And I have a much better feeling about this Mary Jane than I did that other one that was it kind of was a very self -serving character. She was very driven about her career, but it was like everything was an instrument for her to, you know, to get the story she wanted. Absolutely. It's a good, good point. Yeah. And I just, the other thing I noticed is how awesome the performance mode is. I really just highly recommend people at least try it out because once you go into the performance mode, I think it's pretty hard to come back swinging in that is, you know, it's amazing. And then switching back and forth like, okay, I'm going to do some stuff with Miles now in this district, whatever. And you know, the suits have styles, which I'm such the greatest thing in the world. Yeah. Like a, just a palette difference, you know, cause you like the suit, but you're maybe a bit bored with it, change the color, wrench into things and yeah, go green. You know, like there's some unexpected colors in there. I absolutely love the stuff with the suits. And so far, I liked the idea of having the common skill tree for like both of them and then each have their own as well, because I was wondering how they were going to do that. And I thought that was a good way of putting that together.

We've got a great topic today. It's on food sensitivities that drive leaky gut and autoimmunity. I get so many questions about different food sensitivities, and so we're going to dive into that in great detail today, and our guest is the best -selling author, Dr. Peter Osborne. He is the best -selling author of No Grain, No Pain. He's often referred to as the gluten -free warrior, and he's one of the most sought -after alternative nutritional experts in the world. He's been on our podcast multiple times and always love our conversations with him. He is one of the world's leading authorities on gluten sensitivity. He lectures nationally to both the public as well as doctors on that topic and many other nutritionally related topics. He's the founder of the Gluten -Free Society, the author of The Gluten -Free Health Solution and the Glutenology Health Matrix, and he's got a lot of great content. If you look up gluten -free society, he's got a lot of great content there. And again, we're going to go into great detail on food sensitivities. You're going to really get a master class in that today. So without further ado, we'll jump into the interview. However, if you have not left us a five -star review on Apple iTunes, wherever you listen to this podcast, now is the time to do that. Just go to Apple iTunes, scroll to the bottom. That's where you can leave the five -star review. When you do that, it helps us reach more people and impact more lives with this message. Thanks so much for doing that, and let's go into the show. Well, Dr. Osborne, always great to talk with you. I know you're an expert when it comes to clinical nutrition and food sensitivity. Is this something you see in your practice all the time? So one of the common questions that people ask is, what is the difference between a food allergy and a food sensitivity, right? Because some people will confuse that term and they constantly will say food allergy, but there is a difference. Yeah, great question. I think the important thing to understand is any of the people watching, if you've been to an allergist and they did like a skin prick test or even a blood test, what they were measuring for was allergy. Now allergy is specifically defined as an IgE -mediated response. So this is a type of antibody that generally will cause very acute symptoms. Most people know when they're allergic to something because they feel it within a three -hour window. So from immediate, there's this window of reaction on what's called an IgE -mediated or an acute allergy, and that is immediate to three hours is the window. So symptoms like swelling of the lips, urticaria, hives, wheels, swelling, watery, teary, itchy eyes, these are all things that are super common. If you've ever known someone with like a peanut allergy and they ate a peanut or got exposed to a peanut and they were in the hospital and they pumped them full of epinephrine, that's an allergy. Okay, now in the same category under allergy, there's something known as a subacute allergy, which is the symptoms are not quite as aggressive. Because if you ever look at an IgE lab test, they grade an allergy response with six classes of grades, right? So you could have no response, which would be zero, and then you could have anywhere from a one to a six, six being the highest, right? So six would be like that anaphylactic type of reaction. A four or a five grade, those would be not quite anaphylactic, but still quite severe. But grades one, two, and three, we put in a subacute category, and this will cause symptoms that aren't always immediately aggressively obvious or life -threatening. So things like elevated heart rate, because what happens with an acute allergy is it cranks up your adrenaline. So your heart rate would go up, your blood pressure might go up, you might see a kid bouncing off the walls, right, with their behavior because of that type of response. So again, allergy, that we have severe and then we have subacute, and then we have sensitivity. Now sensitivity is a different wheelhouse altogether. There are multiple ways the immune system reacts to food. So we just said acute allergy is IgE. Now a delayed allergy, or really technically a sensitivity, can be caused by an elevation in IgG, IgM, IgA. There's also something called an immune complex. And then there's another reaction called a T cell response. And then there are others, but these are the kind of five big categories of what can be measured in a lab setting. And these are more of a window of three hours to three weeks. So now we're not talking about, hey, I ate this and my lips swelled and I immediately had problems or symptoms. We're talking about, I ate this, it created just a persistent ongoing level of inflammation. And I might not have felt it to the severe degree that I would feel an acute allergy. And so this is why sometimes it's subtle and it can be hard to detect. So I know a lot of people will try to do like an elimination diet. And elimination diets are great. I think that's a great place to start because it's free and you should be paying attention to how you feel when you eat your food. But a lot of times the sensitivities will not be found through elimination diets and they really need to be laboratory tested for because this is a hurdle many people hit when they're trying to overcome their autoimmune problem or their leaky gut problem is they don't, they no longer know which foods they should be avoiding. They've cut out what's obvious, but they're still struggling, right? And so this is where sensitivities come in again. It's just a much longer window and the reaction is typically subtle, consistent, persistent inflammation. And so that might look like joint pain that just won't go away. That might look like, why do I have these skin rashes that are just constant and persistent? Why do I have this constant ache in my GI tract or this constant heartburn, even though I fast or even though I do things properly? And that, again, it's a low level of inflammation just slowly erodes your body's resources and makes you sicker and sicker over time. So those are the two main kind of differences. Yeah, for sure. And what are the most common food sensitivities that you see? Number one, gluten. I mean, hands down, I mean, I would argue that gluten, anyone with an autoimmune condition needs to be gluten -free. At least that's what I've seen clinically. I'm sure you have probably a similar experience with it, but gluten is number one, dairy is number two, sugar is number three, actually processed sugar, which isn't good for you anyway. But again, a lot of people need to have a test to show them, hey, this is black and white. You need to avoid that. And then beyond that, it's very much unique to the person. I mean, one of the stories I talk a lot about is the story of Ginger, who I wrote about her in my book. She was nine years old and had a terminal diagnosis. She had six months to live, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. And she was allergic, or not, I say allergic, she was sensitive to blueberries. And every morning her mom would feed her a blueberry smoothie because blueberries are superfoods, right? And they're anti -inflammatory and they have so many great benefits, but in her case, they were part of her problem. So that's pretty random. If you think about, okay, blueberries, most people don't know, okay, they don't even suspect of food like blueberries or broccoli, right, or Brussels sprouts or something like that. I have people reactive to beef and people reactive to chicken or eggs, sometimes different nuts. So it's very unique to the individual. But I'd say if you're just guessing at where to start, maybe you don't have the doctor to run the test. Start with gluten, start with dairy, start with sugar. Those three things probably will make you feel tremendously better just by avoiding. Yeah, it makes sense. There's a common phrase that we use in natural medicine, one man's superfood may be another man's poison, right? And so, again, the idea of superfoods, we typically are calling it that based on the nutritional content, but not how the body's immune system is responding to it. And that's really what we're focusing on today is not nutritional element of the food, but the way the immune system is responding to it. And you can have amazing nutritious food like an egg, which is incredibly nutritious for your body. But if your immune system is reacting to it, it's not gonna be good for you. You're gonna get a net negative when you put that in your body. Yeah. Yeah, for sure. And so, there's a common diet out there that a lot of people that have autoimmunity or chronic inflammation use is the paleo autoimmune diet, right? It eliminates a lot of different common triggers. What have you seen with that? Have you seen good results using that? So I don't use specific generalized diets in my practice. Now, in my online community, I encourage people to avoid those three. So like our no grain, no pain diet is dairy -free, sugar -free, grain -free, not just gluten, but all grains. As well in the deeper phases of the diet, we eliminate things like nightshades and eggs and other things. But that's just generic advice. Anybody who comes to see me in my practice, I test, right? Especially if you're at a point where you've already guessed as well as you can on your own, like I'm not gonna guess better than a person who lives in their own body, feels what they feel every day. So I always run the testing. As far as diets like AIP, autoimmune paleo, I mean, they're great places to start again, but a lot of people that come to me are already on that diet. And that's where they're frustrated is that they're already really restrictive in that diet. And so my thought is, sometimes we have to restrict to expand, but why restrict more than what's necessary? And so just again, a large, overwhelming restrictive diet sometimes can seem daunting. And it's really hard for a lot of people wanting to overcome and just even kind of comply to that. You know, they got families and social things they wanna do, and that can really, really challenge them. Now, I'm not saying that they shouldn't make those changes if they feel better doing it, but testing is, in my opinion, the best option if you're hitting a roadblock. And there's a lot of different testing options out there. I know there's some popular tests like the Alcat test. There's IgG, IgM testing. There's testing with the food, you know, just straight up testing with the food cooked. There's a lot of different methods. There's a lot of different kind of lab testing strategies. What have you found, looking at a number of them, what have you found to be in a sense the most effective? We use a technology called lymphocyte response, LRA, lymphocyte response assay. And what it measures, it does a few different things. Number one, it measures IgG, IgA, IgM, something called an immune complex and something called a T -cell response. But it also, it's a live analysis. So you're actually watching the lymphocyte respond in real time. So you can see a reaction as it's occurring. And so as you subject the cells to different types of food reagents, you get a much more accurate representation of what a person is going to react to. There's some flaws with some of the antibody tests because antibodies, you can make an antibody to a food or to an external substance and it can be a protective antibody and not necessarily a damaging antibody. And so a lot of the IgG tests come back and it's not that they can't be accurate or helpful. It's that they can give you an overwhelming list of food reactions. So like, you know, the average person that I see that runs an LRA, they may have 10 to 15 reactions, you know, to foods. IgG testing, you'll get like 50, 60 reactions on a person. And so now, again, it goes back into over -restriction because these IgG tests do not differentiate between friendly or damaging antibodies. And that's where, again, diet restriction is already hard. Let's make it less hard, but let's do let's make it more accurate for the patient to, you know, to embark on diet change without feeling so overwhelmed that it seems impossible. Yeah, yes, that's really good. So LRA, lymphocyte reaction, response assay, response assay. Yep. So really good, really good information there. Now, how about home testing? People will do things like muscle testing, pulse testing, things like that. Have you seen, you know, have you seen any sort of positive, positive results with that? I mean, I don't do muscle testing, I trained in it. I actually trained with the creator of muscle testing years ago, and what I found was it's subjective testing and it's not that it can't be helpful. There are a lot of people that have been helped by muscle testing, but what I find is it changes too radically quick. And so what you get is you get, OK, this week you're reactive to this, next week you're reactive to that, and it's just a lot of bouncing around without a consistency and a reliability. The immune system has a six month life cycle. This is another reason why I like lymphocyte response. It's because when we test someone, we see a reaction, we know that reaction is going to be there as long as the life of that lymphocyte is there. So, you know, generally speaking, when we take somebody on a restrictive diet based on their test results, it's not a permanent restriction. It's a six to eight month restriction because we know we're going to recycle the immune system in that process. On the other side of recycling the immune system, the immune system, when those new cells come along, they're less angry. Remember what autoimmune disease is. It's like post -traumatic stress of the immune system. Your immune system is attacking food. It's attacking the environment. It's attacking you and it's very angry and it's very prone and quick to reaction. So we have to calm that down. Right. And that first generation of cells, if we can calm that down, then the next daughter cells that come along that next generation will be a lot less aggressive. And this is what I mean earlier by we restrict to expand. So we restrict initially and then we're able to come back a lot of times after that initial restriction and it re -expand their diet because their immune systems are more tolerable to things. The immune system shouldn't overreact to food like that. Our immune systems are designed to handle most things, but we're subjected to so many dangerous chemicals and toxins, preservatives, pesticides and drugs too. So many people rely on medicines to treat their symptoms and don't realize that drugs damage the immune system and damage the GI tract. So you end up with basically a collection of allergies and sensitivities over time that now you now the act of eating becomes an act of war. And so your immune system is always on high alert. So, again, I know that wasn't exactly your question. You were asking about muscle testing and some of these other things. I just don't rely on those because my opinion of those is that they're just too subjective to base major decisions on for long periods of time. And that type of data changes too radically. It's too different. Even when I trained in applied kinesiology, my instructor, I would watch him get different results in the same person within a 10 minute time frame. And that like to me, that was just not objectively acceptable as a means to use clinically and feel comfortable about the accuracy. Yeah, that makes sense. And typically by the time people are getting to somebody like you, they've tried a lot of these different elimination diets, a lot of different strategies to kind of try to figure out and they've eliminated a lot of things and they've tried a whole bunch of different supplements and then they're like, I can't figure this out. So they go in for you and they really need that objective testing. Right. So they know exactly what to do. That's it. That's it. Objectivity is people never come to me first. They always come to me like six. Right. Yeah, yeah, for sure. And so you're saying, OK, so the immune system has that six to eight month life cycle. So when somebody comes in, they get tested, you know, 10 foods or whatever it is, blueberries are on there. They come off these foods for for six, eight months. How do you how do you go about the testing? Yeah. So we make a recommendation at least six months. And then it's based on follow up, depending on, you know, as they come back in and we're following up and we're seeing how they're progressing along, if they're if they're doing fantastically well and they're ready to reintroduce some foods, we'll retest those foods and make sure they're not still reacting to those foods because these are delayed hypersensitivity reactions. Remember, the window is three hours to three weeks and the symptoms are not always super aggressive. So I don't want them to I don't want to just tell them, hey, yeah, go ahead and reintroduce it and hope for the best. Again, objectivity is the rule of thumb. So we retest them for the foods they'd like to reintroduce back into their diets. And if they're no longer reacting, then, you know, they get they get the green light. Yeah, for sure. That makes sense. Now, what a lot of people are wondering, why does somebody develop a reaction to a blueberry? Right. Or to beef. But then, you know, not to let's say, you know, on the test, it doesn't show up that they're testing to rice or to corn or something along those lines. You know, everybody's unique and different, and a lot of times what what we do sometimes correlate is. When their guts when their guts are leaking, they're reacting predominantly to the staple foods of choice that they have. Right. So if they're, you know, if they're a beef junkie, you know, and all they eat is or a lot of what they eat is beef or broccoli or, you know, whatever it might be, we oftentimes will see those reactions showing up again. It's because their guts are leaking. Remember, behind the gut, you have the largest conglomeration of immune tissue that exists inside your entire body. It's called the gult, the gastro -associated lymphoid tissue. So if your gut's leaking, then those proteins from those foods are just basically bombarding your gut and not being properly checked by the barrier of the gut. There's four barriers in your gut that act like gates. Right. So it's like, hey, the first gate. Yeah, you look good. Come on in. The second gate. Yeah, you look good. Keep coming. Until they access the bloodstream. But when there's a leaky gut, those gate guards are on vacation. They're gone. And so now those foods are just bombarding the immune system and the immune system's like, how did these guys get here? They don't belong in this party. They haven't been checked and they haven't been appropriately tagged. We have to react against everything. And so whatever's coming through the pipeline is what we're going to see a lot of reactions to typically. Yeah, it makes a lot of sense. So typically it's what you're eating a lot of. Like in Ginger's case, she was doing a blueberry smoothie every morning. She had a leaky gut. She already had an immune system that was on overdrive that was that had PTSD, like you were talking about, where she had juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. So it was going crazy and she's eating blueberries every day. So it's no wonder why it would react to the blueberries. Yeah. And then add to that, she was on methotrexate, which is a drug that destroys the lining of the GI tract. So she had no hope for healing a leaky gut, even with diet change, as long as she was dependent on that drug. And a lot of people don't realize this, but simple medicines like ibuprofen, right? Antibiotics, aspirin, over -the -counter Advil, Tylenol, these are drugs that when you rely on them on a consistent, I'm not saying if you took it once, but if you rely on these things day in and day out, they slowly erode the mucosal barrier in your GI tract. So they remove one of the gates, right? And then they make it easier for other things to go wrong. So you have to really look at at your pharmaceutical closet as well. And this is where a lot of people are trapped because they got, you know, medicine after medicine. They got an initial medicine to treat their symptoms, whether it's pain or whatever it might be. And then the drug caused damage in another way. That's what we call risk benefit. There's a there's a benefit to the drug suppressing symptoms, but there's a risk of what the drug is going to do the body over time. And now the doctor is treating the symptoms, the drug caused with a new drug. Right. And so this this kind of getting trapped in that polypharmacy is what allows a lot of people to really progressively get worse. And they think they're doing the right thing. Their doctor prescribed these things. It must be the right thing to do when in reality it's a it's a slow trap. It's a trick. I always look at pharmaceuticals as as pseudo compassionate, right? Because it's false compassion. Why? Because a doctor that gives you a drug to try to make you feel better, there's when when they're doing it without telling you why your symptoms exist, there's no compassion there. They're actually setting you up for failure. It's it's like your kids. If you just told your kids what to do all the time, but never taught them or educated them and kind of help them navigate how to make good decisions, then they would go out into the world and they would be you know, they would rely on you for the rest of their lives. Right. They wouldn't be able to spread their wings and fly. And this is what happens in medicine all the time. Doctors make you dependent on symptomatic resolution through chemistry. And unfortunately, the side effects of that leads to more of that. And people don't even realize that that's actually some of the biggest inducers of autoimmune disease are drugs that destroy the gut. Yeah, absolutely. And many of the symptoms that people are experiencing that are driven by food sensitivities, they're taking medications for those headaches, migraines, acid reflux, things like that. And I know a big a big class class of drugs that's commonly used are Harper medications, and that can actually, you know, very much induce food sensitivities and leaky gut as well. Yeah, I mean, absolutely. And, you know, beyond even that, you get the drug induced nutritional deficiencies, you know, that that happened. And so now the medicine is treating the symptom, but the drug is causing vitamin and mineral deficiencies that lead to the same symptom that the medicine is treating. And so now the patient's like, well, the medicine quit working, give me a new medicine. And, you know, again, it just stacks and layers and now they're malnourished, their guts are destroyed, and they can't heal because your body requires vitamins and minerals to heal. Like those are the building blocks for repair. And if you're if you're causing deficit of those things through, you know, through polypharmacy, then good luck. It's just not going to happen very effectively. Yeah, for sure. And the autoimmunity that somebody may be experiencing the chronic inflammation is really the body doing the best it can to keep you alive right now, because it's seeing all these chemicals, bacteria, bacterial end products, all these inflammatory agents that it sees as a risk for, in a sense, a quick death. Right. Something some sort of infection that could get into your nervous system, cause meningitis, cause encephalitis or pneumonia. And so it's trying to drive up overall immune activity so you don't get this, you know, life threatening infection. In the meantime, you're living for 10, 15, 20, 30 years with incredible joint pain from, you know, rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis or, you know, whatever it is, you know, Hashimoto's thyroiditis. And so your immune system is doing the best it can to keep you alive. Right. And what we've got to do is kind of teach the immune system that, hey, you're not in a life threatening situation by healing and sealing the gut, addressing those nutrient deficiencies, right. Addressing all of those types of things. Now, when it came to somebody like Ginger, for example, you talked about earlier, you started obviously you did this test, you found food sensitivities, right. You remove those. And so you kind of customized diet there. Now, what were the other things that you were doing to help her heal? So she was also gluten sensitive. Yeah. You know, one of her other foods that she was eating a lot of was rice. So if you want to get into this, but rice by law, by FDA definition is labeled can be labeled as gluten free, although technically rice has a form of gluten in it called Orsonin, which in my experience does plenty of damage to people who have gluten issues. So a lot of people that go gluten free, but they include rice as part of their staple replacement, don't do well. As a matter of fact, there are five year follow up studies that show that 92 percent of people following a traditional gluten free diet fail to achieve the inflammatory remission in their GI tracts. And these are studies done on celiac patients. And when you when you remove the rice and the corn and the other grains, guess what happens? They achieve the remission. And there's there are a number of research studies that show this. I've seen this for 22 years in my clinic. So in her case, rice was one of the things she was already on a gluten free diet traditionally, but she hadn't omitted the rice. And so we also did that. She also had several vitamin and mineral deficiencies. We test for deficiencies. And so those were things that we supplemented and made sure that she was eating the proper foods that contain the nutrients that she was lacking. And in her case, she was you know, she was she had a permanent port embedded in her arm because she was in and out of the hospital so often for pain management treatment. Within six months, that port came out that she was supposed to be dead within six months. That port came out. And then within another six months, she was in total remission. And this is one of my first patients in private practice. So she's gone on. She's graduated college. She's out in the world, you know, doing great things and having a family and everything else. So, you know, autoimmune disease, it's a scary thing. You know, it's you know, if we look at autoimmune disease, 140 of them and, you know, most doctors will tell you, you know, because we separate them out, that autoimmune disease is doesn't have all that great of a mortality risk. But in fact, autoimmune disease, number one cause of death. If you add up all the autoimmune diseases and you compare that to cancer and heart disease, you're going to see a lot more people dying of combination autoimmune disease. Unlike you know, unlike cancer and heart disease, they clump all the cancers together. They clump all the heart diseases together. But they don't do that with autoimmune disease. So it's like the redheaded stepchild of the industry, right? It doesn't get the attention that it deserves.

And so the idea <Speech_Male> is that <Speech_Male> we expect to see <Silence> <Speech_Male> much more <Speech_Male> biomarker being <Speech_Male> produced when the <Speech_Male> cancers are larger <Speech_Male> and more aggressive. <Silence> <Speech_Male> So the human <Speech_Male> clinical study for <Speech_Male> that is ongoing <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> data readouts should be <Speech_Male> coming in the next year <Speech_Male> or so. <Speech_Male> And then on the <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> imaging side of things, <Speech_Male> we are now <Speech_Male> moving <Speech_Male> our preclinical <Speech_Male> studies from murine <Speech_Male> models, <Speech_Male> which are <Speech_Male> just simply <Speech_Male> mice that <Speech_Male> we implant with tumors. <Speech_Male> And we're now <Speech_Male> working with larger <Speech_Male> animal species <Speech_Male> to be able to <Speech_Male> ask the question, <Speech_Male> can we <Speech_Male> detect an <Speech_Male> image the tumors <Speech_Male> within these <Speech_Male> animal models, <Speech_Male> very specifically <Speech_Male> we've been working <Speech_Male> with veterinary oncology <Speech_Male> clinics <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> across the United <Speech_Male> States, <Speech_Male> and in veterinary oncology <Speech_Male> clinics, <Speech_Male> these are filled <Speech_Male> with people whose <Speech_Male> pets have developed <Speech_Male> cancer. <Speech_Male> And they want to <Speech_Male> come in and they want <Speech_Male> to take a look or <Speech_Male> they want to ask <Speech_Male> their veterinarian. <Speech_Male> Is there <Speech_Male> a better way to <Speech_Male> be able to diagnose <Speech_Male> the cancer in my dogs? <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> this really serves <Speech_Male> as a really great <Speech_Male> model population <Speech_Male> for us <Speech_Male> to be able to study <Speech_Male> and ask <Speech_Male> the question, can <Speech_Male> we image the tumors <Speech_Male> in these gods <Speech_Male> more better than traditional <Speech_Male> methodologies? <Speech_Male> And so <Speech_Male> that's where the company is <Speech_Male> moving forward right <Speech_Male> now. <Speech_Male> And we hope to <Speech_Male> be in the clinic with <Speech_Male> that program in the <Speech_Male> next couple <Speech_Male> of years <SpeakerChange> as well. <Speech_Male> And <Speech_Male> what is the <Speech_Male> regulatory path <Speech_Male> for you is this <Speech_Male> requiring FDA approval <Speech_Male> or are you doing <Speech_Male> this as a clear <Speech_Male> lab model? <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> Yeah, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> it's <Speech_Male> a question <Speech_Male> that we have pondered <Speech_Male> and have had <Speech_Male> many discussions <Speech_Male> with regulatory <Speech_Male> agencies not <Speech_Male> only such as the FDA, <Silence> <Speech_Male> but also the <Speech_Male> regulatory agencies <Speech_Male> in Australia <Speech_Male> that are currently <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> responsible for <Speech_Male> the oversight of our <Speech_Male> clinical trial being <Speech_Male> performed there. <Silence> The. <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Silence> <Speech_Male> Fact of the matter <Speech_Male> is is that we <Speech_Male> are giving something <Speech_Male> back to the patients. <Speech_Male> These are nucleic <Speech_Male> acids. So <Speech_Male> as a <Speech_Male> purely diagnostic <Speech_Male> play, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> this will not be <Speech_Male> regulated <Speech_Male> simply as <Speech_Male> a diagnostic <Speech_Male> or can <Speech_Male> be performed in the Cleo <Speech_Male> lab, much like a <Speech_Male> liquid biopsy. <Speech_Male> Instead, <Speech_Male> this will require <Speech_Male> oversight <Speech_Male> by various agencies <Speech_Male> within FDA. <Silence> I think what <Speech_Male> makes it challenging <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> from a regulatory standpoint <Speech_Male> is that <Speech_Male> there is <Speech_Male> a <Speech_Male> biologic product <Speech_Male> here being the nucleic <Speech_Male> acid and there's <Speech_Male> a diagnostic <Speech_Male> component to it as <Speech_Male> well. And <Speech_Male> so we've already initiated <Speech_Male> several <Speech_Male> conversations with the <Speech_Male> agencies. There's <Speech_Male> theirs, <Speech_Male> for instance, say <Speech_Male> an office called the office <Speech_Male> I have combination <Speech_Male> products or <Speech_Male> combinatorial products. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> And we've already <Speech_Male> started the engagement <Speech_Male> with them. <Speech_Male> To <Speech_Male> understand ultimately <Speech_Male> the long-term regulatory <Speech_Male> path, <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> what I always <Speech_Male> like to say is <Speech_Male> with the FDA <Speech_Male> or any regulatory <Speech_Male> agency worldwide, <Speech_Male> start the <Speech_Male> conversations early <Speech_Male> and start the <Speech_Male> conversations often. <Speech_Male> And that's <Speech_Male> self advice <Speech_Male> that we've heated <Speech_Male> and <Speech_Male> yes, we <Speech_Male> continue those <Speech_Male> discussions to <Speech_Male> understand <Speech_Male> the pathway as well <Speech_Male> as describe the <Speech_Male> product to the agency. <Silence> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> David sui, <Speech_Male> cofounder and chief <Speech_Male> scientific officer <Speech_Male> of early <Speech_Male> David, thanks so much <Speech_Male> for your time today. <Speech_Male> Daniel, thanks. <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> It was a pleasure to <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> speak with you.

"I think that what we worry about now is not so much false negatives, false negatives are sort of what the current standard of care is. That we wait to see what grows and gets bigger. But clinicians and physicians are more going to worry about false positives. And so I think from a clinical validation standpoint, that's the road that lies ahead for the company. Now on the pricing side of things, that's a discussion for the payers. And ultimately, what I will say is that our technology is designed to be relatively low cost. You might hear nucleic acid and you might think about some of the gene therapy programs that are out there costing millions of dollars for a single shot. This is not that sort of value proposition. The technology itself is meant to be fairly low cost. It is meant to have a pet imaging component associated with it. So there is the cost of the pet technology and ultimately, though, how payers decide to reimburse is really dependent upon how much of the information from the assays that we develop go to detecting cancer earlier when it's more treatable in these patients. And the calculus of that value proposition is really dependent upon how well it works. And so there's a lot of dovetailing with efficacy from the clinician standpoint to give them confidence to prescribe this type of detection to their patients, but the value proposition has to be there. And it has to be fairly low enough in cost. Not substantially higher than current technologies. Such that the payers say, yes, it would be great if we could have this tool employed because it would prevent all these sort of end stage care costs that massively inflate as people go through developing late stage cancer. My understanding is that this same approach that you have for diagnosing cancers can be used to treat cancers as well. Can you explain? Yeah.

"Or in the future, you could even exchange that pet reporter gene for now something therapeutic. Maybe you're going to produce a protein that has the ability to produce a toxin and kill the tumor or may produce something that's going to re stimulate the immune system will work with our current classes of drugs that we use to treat cancer to actually kill the cancer. By and large that point of this is that we've produced this really elegant nucleic acid base system that only turns on within the context of cancer using cancer, activated promoters, and we produce something. And that's the truly differential and orthogonal difference here from what the current technology do. Everybody else looks for biomarkers that the cancer naturally produces in a nutshell, we send in a molecular spy that only gets activated, only comes out of its leap or cell if it encounters a cancer cell. And once it does so, we can program that genetic construct to now produce something that will either help us detect, locate or kill that cancer. The issue is still when a physician would order the test to make it truly successful at detecting cancer early. What's the expectation in that regard? Yeah, so the technology is it's developed means that we have an inherent cost to the process of giving something back to the patient. So, you know, I don't believe that the technology as we develop it is going to be useful for cancer screening, per se, where you've got tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of patients who are

"I was reading a little bit about your background, have read some about some of the work that you've done at being sort of at the forefront of cutting edge gene therapy types of techniques. Sam gambier and I are putting together a company, would you be interested in having a coffee? Then I said, sure, this sounds great. I knew Sam by reputation had followed Sam's career over the last 15 years and some of the amazing things he had did. And although I had not directly interacted with Sam, the ability to at least take a meeting and listen to what that company was going to be was was something that I was very much interested in. So Syria and I met over a coffee. It's actually really great story. And he starts walking me through the technology, and he says, you know, David, I'm not a scientist. I'm a serial tech entrepreneur, but let me tell you what we've been working on and in the first sheet of paper he pulled out was essentially like a Tylenol capsule that had a piece of DNA inside of it. And it was just sort of a placeholder for delivery of genetic types of constructs for the detection of cancer. And I looked at the drawing and I said, who would ever think about delivering DNA inside of a pill? This is ridiculous. You know, this, I can tell this conversation is going to go nowhere. Until I realized that it was essentially just a placeholder and sort of a metaphor for what the company ultimately would do. And over the course over the next two hours, as Syriac and I spoke over that coffee where we outlined the science and what the science could be and some of the thoughts around that he and Sam had already put together on how to approach some of these problems. I mean, it was still very early days. There was nothing said in stone.

"That's why we believe it early that the technology is very good, but still likely will need to be paired up with other types of screening technologies at the end of the day to make sure that it works not just well for the later stage cancers, but we can truly get into stage two or stage one cancers. Before we talk about early approach, I'd like to take a step back and ask you about the founding of the company. Can you explain for listeners who are not familiar with Sam gambier who died in 2020 from cancer? Who he was and how his work led to the creation of early? Absolutely. So Sam gambier was a professor at Stanford University. And to know Sam, he was perhaps one of the most brightest individuals that I've ever encountered in terms of creativity. But at the end of the day, he was an even better human being, which is hard to imagine describing somebody as incredibly brilliant and beyond that they're an amazing human being, but Sam really was one of these people who just thought beyond the norm, I believe he started college when he was in his teens. Which was a thing before we all became accustomed with Doogie Howser on TV. But Sam certainly was one of these people that enrolled in college and subsequently did an MD PhD early in life. And as an MD PhD, he really focused on not only treating the human body, but understanding, I believe his undergraduate degree was in physics and his PhD was in biomass. So very computational thinker, when he was at UCLA, he worked with Michael Phelps to develop help develop further pet as an imaging modality for cancers and other sorts of diseases. And by the time he moved to Stanford, Sam was producing some remarkable discoveries, one of the ways, for instance, he was trying to increase the ability to detect rare cancer signals in the blood at early stage, was essentially magnetized cancer cells and then put a wire into the vein and essentially tried to fish out the cancer cells by using a magnetic device to essentially enrich for that pool. He produced papers on whether or not we could use smart toilets as a way of having an early look at colorectal cancers. And then was working on technologies just in general that had the ability to go above and beyond, you know, you always think of where technology is today and you think where it could be in 5 years. Sam was one of those people who lived at that 5 year spot while the rest of us were all just trying to catch up to his ideas. So an amazing guy, unfortunately, after we founded the company, Sam was one of the three cofounders. It was myself in Syriac roading and Sam unfortunately succumbed to cancer himself, which is ironic considering this is a gentleman who really was forefront at the field and wasn't able to even use the current tools that we have to diagnose cancer with it themselves. So we miss him dearly. But his DNA lives with on what we do as a company constantly. You mentioned you're a cofounder of the company as well. How did you become involved in it? Yeah, it's a really interesting story. Prior to starting early, I was the chief scientific officer of a small Australian company that was creating gene therapies. And we've done some remarkable science in that different lifetime of mind, but one day I got a cold email reach out from our third cofounder, a gentleman named Syriac roading who's a serial

"So it is a very important point that none of this can happen without the patient's consent and seeing their physician. There have been new technologies that have emerged notably liquid biopsies, which look for circulating DNA and body fluid. How effective are these at detecting cancer early? Yeah, I think liquid biopsies are really great example of these newer technologies and for those who may not know what a liquid biopsy is. It's simply taking a passively drawn blood sample out of your arm and looking for the presence of biomarkers which may be indicative of cancer. And so, you know, in many cases, cancers as they grow, will shed proteins into the bloodstream, the tumor cells may break off and go into the bloodstream. And then some of the most common technologies that are being used, the cancer cells themselves lice and release some of their tumor DNA into the blood, then it's called cell free circulating tumor DNA, and many companies and many groups are out there looking at either the presence or absence of this cell free circulating tumor DNA or how its methylated or how it gets modified within the body as a measure of cancer. I would say that the liquid biopsy companies have had a lot of success, particularly when the cancers are very aggressively growing or there's a lot of biomass. And this tends to be in stage three or stage four cancers. And it just goes to reason that as these cancers become larger and more aggressive, they turn to turn over a little bit more putting a lot of this material into the bloodstream. The problem is, is for earlier stage cancers, the tumors don't grow as aggressively. And they may be a fraction of the size of what the cancer is, even at stage three, or even stage two. And so if we're really, truly going to be effective at detecting cancer earlier, we need better more sensitive techniques, not that liquid biopsies don't do a great job for the later stage cancers, but they're sensitivity, their ability to detect tumors falls off rapidly as these tumors get to earlier and earlier stages.

"Sam gambier understood the ravages of cancer. His wife developed breast cancer and survived. His son later developed brain cancer at the age of 15 and died, and in 2020, gamber himself succumbed to cancer. Before he died, though, gambier, who served as division chief of the canary center for early cancer detection and molecular imaging at Stanford University, hit upon an idea. Rather than hunt for cancers in the hopes of making an early diagnosis, he devised a way for them to produce synthetic biomarkers to cause them to reveal themselves. He cofounded early, which seeks to enable the diagnosis of cancers when they are most treatable. We spoke to David sui, cofounder and chief scientific officer of early, about the company's synthetic biomarker technology that makes cancers visible with a pet scan. How it works, and how this has the potential to alter outcomes by enabling treatments of patients before their disease progresses.

"One of the safest and most study vaccinate fascinations over a development said, doctor fader. It is important to know that not all strains of HPV cause cancer. There are about 200 subtypes of HPV that has been identified in those about 40 or so or spread by sexual contact said doctor fader. About 80 to 90% of cervical cancers are due to HPV 16 and 18. For some we are types can also lead to circular cancer she knows. There are three approved HPV vaccinations and all three effectively protective against HPV 1618. We can send at any HPV vaccinate will protect against the vast majority of HPV reloaded related cervical cancer. But none covers an absolute 100% said, doctor fader. This is why regular screenings are still recommended fascinated patient. She adds.

Welcome back to part two of this history, our looking back 20 years to the 9 11 attacks, their causes and their consequences. We're going to hear how Qaida weren't just looking outside Afghanistan in their bid to spread their hardline ideology. They also went after opponents inside Afghanistan. Plus how that country was shaken to its core by the post 9 11 American intervention. But what about before the attacks on New York and Washington? Well, there were warnings as Luis Hidalgo found out when she spoke to the former U. S Senator Gary Hart. I don't think I or anyone else identified where it would come from, but we were ironclad. In our conviction, we would be attacked somehow sooner rather than later. Eight months before the 9 11 attacks, Former Senator Gary Hart and the Republican Warren Rudman published the final results of the 2.5 year official investigation they'd co chaired into the national security threats facing America in the new century. The commission had taken evidence from over 100 witnesses in 20 different countries and was built as the most exhaustive review of U. S national security since World War two on the commission with some of the best defense and foreign policy experts in the country. And their conclusion was stark. The collective 11 members of the commission putting the pieces of this jigsaw cell together, realized that this was a clear and present danger and I'd very plausible threat. Americans. As we reported will die on American soil, possibly in large numbers. And how was your warning received? When we delivered that report, we held a press conference. Halfway through our presentation, One of the journalists got up and left. He was asked why he was leaving, and he said none of this is going to happen anyway. And that happened to be a senior reporter from The New York Times, So we were almost blacked out by the media. The response from the White House wasn't much better. President Clinton had set up the commission. But by that January of 2000 and one when the final report was published, a new president was in the White House. Republican George W. Bush had been inaugurated just 11 days before they published and that was part of the idea, wasn't it that the new president? Whoever it turned out to be, would have your recommendations almost on the day that they took office. Yes, Yes, Our mandate was to deliver the report to the new president of the United States. Unfortunately, he would not meet with us. We then tried to see the new Vice President Richard Cheney. He also was not available. We did meet with the Secretary of Defense. Mr Rumsfeld, the new Secretary of State Colin Powell. And briefly with Condoleezza Rice Condoleezza Rice was President Bush's national security adviser. Yes, and how did they react? I think the two Cabinet secretaries did take it on board did ask questions Secretary Rumsfeld. He had a yellow legal pad, and he took copious notes. There just was no action taken. The Bush administration would later say it has been hard to respond to a warning. That was so imprecise. The commission had given no indication and attack had come from hijacked aircraft. But that summer there were warnings about planes.

This is the work that we do every day and for her I am so happy for her, and she's so happy that her cancer marker went to normal. Her masses shrunk and she's in her mission. No bad results, no side effects. This is the work that we do every day at 13, 80 for Broadway, Broadway and 38th Street in the Heart of New York City. And what I wanna talk about man also talk about almost similar. He's an 83 year old manage the smokers still smoking. He has three sons and his high blood pressure and cholesterol and he came to me with two Skin cancer is a year ago, He came with his skin cancer on his forehead and skin cancer on his ear. And while the surgeon dermatologist and most certainly wanted to cut off his forehead and cut off his ear And he just didn't want his ear cut off. You don't want this forehead cut off. We see lots of people with skin cancers, squamous cells and basal cells, who are just fed up with surgery and fed up with deformity. I see many people had 345 deforming most surgeries, usually in the face. It's usually where the sun exposure is the most when I see it on the hands and the feet and the arms and the legs of the trunk also so this man came to me a year ago with two Um, very juicy skin. Cancer is one of the forehead one in the ear. They're both gone now and you can say Well, why am I talking about him? And I'm talking just about the skin cancer. Not be enough. That's enough. Tell you that, too. For two. Both skin cancers are gone. There's no evidence of that, even at the biopsies showing it's gone, so he's very happy about that. But then he came to me. He listens to this radio show, and he came to me one day because often on the radio. Shall I talk about things and we talk about how listeners save lives, and sometimes listeners can save their own lives. So here's a man who had skin cancers, and he was successfully treated and he was happy and he was listening to the radio show. And he learned one day I was talking about signs of cancer about weight loss or bleeding or coughing up blood or blood in the store. But in a year and And well, he called me up the next day He heard the on the radio. And he said Dr leaders Having the cancer. It's all that he knew. Okay was listening to the radio, so he lost the weight. He came to me. He emailed me and you can email me too. If you have a question, day or night email. My emails. Kil Joo at R s. And why 0.0 r g Gil Jail at R s and why 0.0 r g He said that earlier have lost weight. What should I do? I was listening to radio show I said, come in, and he came in, and we staged him up. Examine him. I got blood tests that we found a large mass in the lung. And this in the last couple days, And then we got a pet scan and we got a pet scan just yesterday showing this mass was lighting up and it looked like there was lymph nodes in the chest. Those a stage three lung cancer. We talked about all the options, biopsy and surgery and chemo and radiation is one son who's Very distinguished came in uniform from the fire department. Another son yesterday wanting to know and you got the pet scan yesterday. Well immediately. He got the answer the same day within the hour, and that's how we are, which is so different than most places. We talked about all the options whether he wants surgery or chemo or radiation or radio surgery. We talk about all the options, which is another reason why we are so different. So many places. It seems like the surgeon always like pushing surgery and the chemo doctors pushing chemo so commonly And well, we talked about all the options and I spoke to him and his two sons when we talked about all the options, and this is the work that we do every day at 13 80 for Broadway. The pet scan did show a little suspicious area in the liver. And so right now, actually this moment, we're getting an MRI and ultrasound of the liver to see Not invisible but painless, tiny little needle to go to that liver.

Head and neck cancers or a broad category of cancer and treatment depends on the type the location and the size of the cancer treatment often involves surgery radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Head and neck cancers caused by the human papillomavirus or hp are becoming increasingly common and these cancers primarily occur in the tonsils or in the tonsil tissue at the base of the tongue after treatment recovery from head neck cancers can also be complex it may involve working with rehabilitation specialists in other experts to cope with some of the side effects that can occur some of these include hearing loss difficulty eating and difficulty swallowing well here with us to the today to discuss his very complex topic as dr daniel. Ma radiation oncologist at mayo clinic. Thanks for being with us today. Dan thank you so much. Dr gonzaga for inviting me today. Well i am looking forward to learning from you today. Because i think this is one of those types of cancer that is really complicated And also it. It is sort of scary for people. Headed net cancer is definitely is a cancer type that requires collaboration between multiple physicians to treat. Well it's one. Where tight collaboration between a ent surgeon Medical oncologists who gives chemotherapy and radiation oncologists like myself who gives radiation or x. Ray treatments is crucial for the success of the treatment. There needs to be many partners as well. With dental specialties. Speech and swallow audiology. That's all required as well so it is one of those cancers that are more challenging to treat and it strikes me that that's a pretty broad category headed next. There has to be a lot of different types of tissue in the head and neck. So can you tell us a little bit about the types of cancer sure head. Neck cancers encompass a whole variety of cancers starting anywhere from the nose going down to the mouse going to the back of the throat with the lymph tissue. That's in that area. Going into the voice box and above and below the voice box as well The majority of these cancers do however have a A similar histology which is a way of saying there is a cancer. There is a cell type that they tend to come from and the cancer that tends to come from the cell type is from the lining of the mucous membranes. That happened in that area. So the majority of cancers tend to be something. We call squamous cell carcinoma. Which is a a a a way of saying cancers of the lining of the mucous membranes in the mouth or the nose with a throw toward the voice box that have started to divide in In uncontrolled fashion. What when you mentioned different specialists working. It reminded me that. When i go to my dentist i think she checks my mouth for presumably head neck.

It's the actual experience of the center and the volume that the provider stay. But you can have a three times higher chance of dying if you go to one of those low volume centers however the unique thing about mayo which i love is that we always work with local care centers to help people get the treatments that they can get close to home. If it's appropriate in if we can do it we try to keep patients at home in only having come here for things that we offer unique from what they could get at home. I'm so glad that you mentioned that.

We developed the upper digestive disease which is a remote patient monitoring app that follows stations after sokcho cancer. The main goal of that project is to let people go home and be monitored in the convenience of their home not having to constantly come back and not having to stay in touch with us into expensive follow up visits the to let them just remotely stay in touch with us and then only if they really need us. Do they need to plug back in while. That's just amazing. That's another a bit of virtual care that we're hearing about now. I love that yeah. It's nice. I like being able to stay in touch with my patients not was doing well and who's not doing well and have the confidence of knowing that i'm staying in touch with more people.
