"Welcome elaine and alan. Hi thanks for having much fiving us. Thank you for being here so first off. Can you both give rundown of how you came to choose science as a career alan. You want to start first ago. Fist so basically. I was fortunate enough to grow up in zimbabwe and the uk and during the time of kinda witnessed the spectrum of life on the side so in zimbabwe children dying from israeli curable. Diseases over here in the free healthcare so from that point on which i was always fascinated with science and knowing how culas in medicines work in order to kinda help people help alleviate some of those those problems faced and are now found myself here doing exactly that. When did you go to the uk was yes or me and my family migrated here in two thousand and five When i was nine years old. So yes oh. Half of my life was spent in zimbabwe in tough with my life has been spent here in the uk. Elaine how 'bout you. How'd you get started in stem. So i had a different background in. Just the i was always really interested in doing fun science things. So you know the star of your cook at putting main to suites into bottles of coca cola and getting the rockets and things like that and just generally really curious about things that i was really fortunate to have parents and family and teachers who encouraged release support that so i guess through school i was like. What do you want to be when you grew up. My answer was always something science. But i didn't really know within there and i guess for maybe similar to allen's story is that i was also really driven to to help people by did work experience at a hospital an absolutely hated it. I remember. i watched a patient get bone marrow. Taken and high nearly fainted in the patient was asking me. If i was okay and i think that was the end by medical career

Inside Iran's Underground Fashion Industry
"Global News headlines have been dominated by news out of Iran where a recent US air strike killed. Iran's most senior military leader General Qassem Awesome Sulejmani resulting in growing tensions in the Middle East back at voices. Two thousand nine. We shed some light on. Iran's underground fashioned seen team Iran is a country that we in the West know very little about but over the past few years. I've been receiving messages on instagram from young fashioned creatives. Who have written to me saying that that behind closed doors there is actually a vibrant fashion culture in Iran and they are longing to connect with all of us? It seemed like the perfect topic explore voices. Twenty nine to shed some light on Iran's underground fashion scene. We were honored to introduce four Iranian fashion creatives to share their experiences of their vibrant culture. Holzer with us and also to demystify some of our misconceptions about their country based in Chicago Hoda Khattab is the voice behind the political fashion platform. Juju Jewish and hotel opened our voices session with a powerful talk which explained how Iran's fashion economy has been impacted both by an extreme regime in Iran but also sanctions from the US UK and other Western countries. Hoda was joined by Sharon and chief of Car to self taught fashion designers and co-founders Iranian fashion label car. Who came all the way from Tehran to join us and the brilliant Iran born London based sued goal Sarky founder and editorial director of Tank magazine who interviewed Hoda Sharon and Sheva together? These four challenged our assumptions about aww country that is largely closed off from the West on this week's B. O. F. podcast go inside. Iran's fashion industry and I had this really cute flowery speech. I was excited to give but given what's happening in Iran right now. I think it's only fair to sort of take a setback and talk about the situation and kind of conceptualize that so right now. It's been almost a week in which the Iranian government has actually shut down the Internet and shooting Shiva and I couldn't even be in touch until they landed in the UK. I haven't been able to have been in touch with my family for the past near week. Either and this this sort of constant and current sort of uprising protests are really in part due to economic insecurities as sort of economic degradation of society see that has been caused by government corruption mismanagement of funds but also US and UK sanctions that have literally crippled society. Every single Iranian every single day is affected by sanctions by this country and by the United States. Things like medicine is unaffordable. Everyday curable. Diseases people are dying from because they don't have access to medical care or medicine because of the high prices food commodities everyday little things are so inaccessible accessible to every Iranian right now because of the situation so so important that yes what's happening in Iran is horrible but I think we also have to understand that the United states and the UK and many of our countries are also complicit. And what's happening right now. The reason and the difficulties that she didn't she will be talking about more both domestically but also from the sanctions that these countries are having creates a larger more complicated situation that we really need to be. unpacking and fashion is inherently political intertwined and all of this and yes obviously in Iran. There's a mandatory dress code and fashion. Maybe a little bit more political explicitly there but throughout the entire world. There is no such thing as apolitical fashion. It does not exist if anybody says fashion is apolitical. Please Punch them. This Muslim is condoning violence. I'm pleased on called prevent on me but it's true because fashion ultimately at its core is the motive communication. We're communicating something able to convey really powerful messages. Tell people about a culture about society or we're not an recyling. It and silence is complacency at a time where we truly cannot afford to. The world is fucking on. I can say fucking the world is fucking on fire right now. Aw How can we ever think that what we're creating and putting out in the world should not be engaging with us and all of us were closed and are in the business of fashion. I don't even immune that fund and yet are we actually truly grappling with the complexities of how fashion is truly political on so many levels beyond just just a slogan which could mean or not mean something based on where you're producing it Fashion is even more inherently political. If we think about production and consumption what does that mean. The majority of our clothes are produced in Southeast Asia by people who look like me and you had the majority of consumed here. In the West our whole industry relies upon and continues continues to profit from histories of imperialism genocide sanctions that have plagued the entire world and yet we still profit from it. We're living in an active empire. The British Empire still exists people are still profiting off of the fact that there is no economic growth. happening in countries countries like Indonesia because we profit from it and we value this and our entire industry is built upon it. So what does that mean and also the fact that fashion literally frames our bodies like literally every time we step outside. We're deciding how we want our body to be actually presented in the world there's nothing else that's more intimately connected to our identities or the manifestation of that in public space than fashion literally. Wraps it touches our skin. So what does it mean mean for something that's made in a product of violence to be rubbing off on our skin every single day were so so concerned about what we eat where it goes in our bodies but how about what touches our skin constantly every single day most nights some nights but also but it conveys a Maybe religion the fact that I'm visibly Muslim. My experiences growing up in the United States as someone visibly Muslim has been marked with physical assault being uncalled terrorists every single day. This is a reality that every day I step out of my house and choose to present myself in a way that I know that I'm GonNa be added to another government surveillance. Watch list her. And if you don't have to think about every day when you step outside of your house who is going to profile you or what police is going to stop and search you. That's privilege which doesn't make that decision any less political so we have to think about that and right now especially the fact that the Muslim identity is trending trending in the fashion industry. My identity is sexy. Every single person wants a Muslim. Who looks like me? Walking down the runway and their latest campaign. But how can we have the fact that right. Now we're at a time of heightened anti Muslim racism on a global level partnered with the time that we see Muslim faces taking up space across fashion magazines. What does that immune for our industry? Is that a trend. Or are we actually substantially dealing with and grappling with the manifestations of what it means to support Muslims. Would it means the support people people of Color. How can Nike? For example create. A pro hit job that was created with the raw materials by Muslim wiegert Muslims and concentration camps in western China passed down to Muslims in Indonesia working in sweatshops to produce Nike Apparel and then sold here and then be a product and praise as for being so pro Muslim. Why are we allowing brands and the whole entire fashion industry to simplify and reduce our identities into just a hit job? Hit Job is not synonymous as being Muslim but we allow fashion right now to reduce simplify and completely annihilate the movements Minson identities in which we've been working on for decades actually call this revolution washing greenwashing which I think most of us are familiar with. But it's at the revolution every brand. Dan Wants to be sexy. And part of the Revolution Right now. But what are you actually doing. Are you actually simplifying. And reducing and taking away the significance of what it means to be Muslim. The complex experiences of what it feels like to wear every single day and that the government simultaneously is gonNA use that against me or use that to invade on a son and and so. I'm really excited. Really excited to also be able to be the sheet and Sheva on this panel to understand that the world is fucking complicated like there's a lot She does happening every day everywhere but rather than just being afraid of taking a step back and be like okay. We're GONNA make the simple like I don't want to be controversial. We have to engage with at that. Fashion should not be in the business of simplifying things but embracing the complexity and really being able to grapple and imagine a better world and then actively work work toward building that

"Hey, Dr Liederman or back. We are back, and they were talking about a man is sixty one years old. This is a man as a fancy hairdresser one of those fancy places on the upper east side and a year ago. It went to hospitals having difficulty walking just send them home. They said he was dehydrated, and blah, blah, blah and didn't do any tests. Well, this is a pretty rely. Liable straightforward man who said he couldn't walk and they saw them in the emergency room at one of the super pooper big hospitals and send him out and he thought well, they must be right. And so I didn't go back for a few more months by then it could barely walk even worse. And at that time, he was almost paralysed went into one of the super pooper big hospitals, and they try to via and they said, well, the can't find any cancer. And so they sent him to a nursing home. And he went to a nursing home for months, and we often talk about this going to a nursing home or rehab when you have cancer in my view, generally just gives the cancer a chance to grow. And that's what happened. You got worse and worse and worse and worse. And then he came here at about our work radio listener like you told them. Hey, you may want to go see Dr Liederman, and he came in. And I saw him orange the biopsy, and we found that he had a limb fomer eating away at his spinal cord and by time that he saw me was paralyzed a wheelchair. And we started treatment on him to a man who has paralysis and lymphoma, which is a potentially curable disease, and we started treatment and sin. He's been on treatment. He's starting to move as legs. And there's lots of things to learn. If you have something wrong with you, and the doctors tell you, hey, it's not this. Well, it's probably time to get a fresh second opinion. Like, he did unfortunately, took months and months and months and months to come here to thirty four Broadway. But he did it. He went to a hospital. I and they went to nursing home and rehab, and none of that helped until he came here. You got a biopsy. And now for the first time he can move his legs. This is the work. We do all noninvasive. No, cutting no bleeding, no chemo. This is the work that we do every day at thirteen four Broadway. Broadway and thirtieth street in the heart of New York City.

"Hundred two two two five two two two ju drew with. And you can get it. Right. Man. This midday live leeann tweeden, Dr juror number eight hundred two two two five two two two. And we're about to enter into a medical topic here with Dr Joseph Lee, he is chairman of board of directors chaired, the board of directors of the enter consumer research foundation, and you may not have heard of neuro consumers, but they are not that uncommon. And they're rather devastating and they have affected people in the public without much conversation, which I found rather lacking. So this is our chance to talk about it. Dr Lee, welcome to the program. Thank you. Dr am I right that Steve Jobs had a pancreatic Neuromancer consumer? Yeah. That's my understanding that, unfortunately, Mr. jobs, so died of that disease. And again, if people had even a passing understanding of this disease. They would understand that there was very effective treatment. And the weird. I understand why his anybody allowed him to die because it didn't have to happen. Correct. Wow. I don't know that the specifics of Mr. jobs treatment because I wasn't involved in. But certainly, you know, I think that. I don't know that I would describe that we have affective treatments. There are a number of patients, unfortunately worldwide who are dying this disease. But in part of what we're trying to do at the foundation is to bring awareness. So we have earlier diagnosis and with early diagnosis. We can treat patients with surgery and removes a tumor. That's the point. I want to make is that he refused. Surgery. Pancreatic cancer is devastation. No carcinoma of the pancreas. But neuro endocrine tumor of the pancreas a small one without any evidence of metastatic disease. You are doing a dance when you get that. And you're going, and you take it out, and he refused that and that was the tragedy my opinion. Now as we both have said, neither is it took care of him. He may have had some metastatic disease that wasn't evident or who knows. But my understanding is he had curable disease. And that's insane. That they didn't go after it. So I'm looking at the paper here that was put in framing. It says a lot of times this diseases, commonly overlooked or misdiagnosed. Go ahead. What we know is that based on studies we find that patients oftentimes takes over four to five years before patients are finally diagnosed with this disease and a big reasons because the symptoms are very common. So for example, and somebody who has loose stools. Communist thing that you might have some food poisoning or you might have irritable bowel syndrome, but that is really one that earlier symptoms, of example, a small bowel cancer. But let's let's be clear you're not because somebody comes to your office like myself primary care doctor and says, I'm having diarrhea. You don't go straight to test you for cancer. No because diarrheas, right? And it's also presentation of lymphoma and leukemia and thousand other things infectious diseases of all types, and there's a million different things at present like that and neuro endocrine disease. Does not have a simple screening tests. That's the hard part. Would you agree with that? I absolutely agree. And as a as a general generalist like like yourself? I take care of patients daily who come in with very common symptoms like loose stool, and you're absolutely correct. More common things happen commonly. But however that being said patients continue to persist in having symptoms. It's reasonable to point to work down the list of differential diagnoses. And well, one of the things that we want people think about is a possibility that near Anderson Cancer is on that list. I completely agree with your your sighing. Because you're you're pointing at a weakness in our profession, generally as doctors don't have time and do not generally take the initiative to think they have to think about Dr Lee is advocating, hey, guys, think hard about what this is every time. You see diarrhea don't blow it up think it through and down the list. The listener in our head trust me about lakes. I mean, what is it? Are you backed up because insurance might difficult. And and I'm not sure. Well, my goodness. I'm gonna show my bias here. I'm not sure we're training doctors think is critically as we used to be. There's all kinds of distracting is. But let's get back to the consumers. The it's a it's a family of disorders. Let's talk about that a little bit. Yeah. It is a family disorders. You know? I think that part of the confusion is that when we think about Mr. jobs, and and people like Rica Franklin, we think that they died a paint Graddick cancer and say did die of pancreatic cancer. But not the traditional type of ad no carcinoma that most commonly patients with pancreatic cancer say they unfortunately passed away with pancreatic, Noor under cancers, we have new intercom cells throughout the body can happen. We have new cells in the lungs. We have neuron cells in the pancreas. We have in the small Dow, and depending on where to cancers arise they can have different symptoms. So for example, in patients who develop near endocrine cancers of the lung they may develop shortness of breath. Or are we seeing or as a tumors grow? And obstructive the Broncos they may develop pneumonia. So these are all we know again thinking about leasing that's more likely reactive airway disease or asthma near Anderson cancers. When we think about patients with appendicitis, you know, more commonly, it's not due to a tumor like a neuro endocrine cancer obstructing appendix. But we do see with some regularity that this does happen patients get up in the scientists, and when they get their appendix removed lo and behold, there's a new independent tumor, they're causing the problems. So I think that one of the things I think about is that for patients is that if you develop symptoms, and you're not getting the answers, please keep going back to your provider. No matter what you think the symptoms are always get symptoms are not a diagnose diagnosis treatment. So until you have at least a provisional diagnosis don't sit back through doctor. And if you're not satisfied, you go and get a second opinion. If you're all out, but let's go back to the Carson. I'd actually again, we're talking about the Noor enter consumer research foundation. That's the entry. We're talk to Dr Joseph Lee and with the increase use of antibiotics to treat acute appendicitis. Are you seeing an increase in miss Carson? I tumors of the pancreas. Yeah. But I don't know that we have enough data to understand the diagnosis of appendicitis. As it relates to near endocrine cancers in this era, where we are using more antibiotics than ever what we do know is that. Are you miss? My question. There is a there is a body of literature that's recommending particularly elderly patients. We don't operate on appendix. We're doing treating it with antibiotics and thereby we're going to leave a couple of Carson always behind because the you know the. Calmed down. It will come back. I guess recurring appendicitis has carcenoid until proven otherwise. But I'm just wondering if that has any data to show what the effect of that has been yet. Yeah. I don't know. I'm not aware of any data as such but one would expect that you have a tumor large enough. That's obstructing the appendix that it's absolutely what you said it's going to come back, and am I guess more likely than not recurrent appendicitis is going to be less likely treated medically surgically at some point. But I I think we're gonna have to see some data's whether or not getting there late later has any real effect on the course of these cars, and I I gotta tell you. I've I've seen. I've seen a lot of bizarre carcenoid where they're just in the tail of the appendix, and they may not have been the causative factor directly to the appendicitis. And this is all kinds of ways the carcenoid fits into the story. So it's it's a it's a complex complex story and one of the points. I wanna make the nomenclature has changed over time. Yeah. Exactly. What you're referring to in terms of carcenoid? There are some providers out there that have a belief that carcenoid is not cancer cancer like, and and that's part of the reason why the nomenclature we've really moved to the nomenclature of using neuro endocrine cancers throughout the body personal and more often refers to near Anderson cancers of the small bow. And, but I I think that there is a level of confusion out there that has persisted over time with with what the nomenclature can I ask if you get neuro endocrine tumor that's cancerous in you discovery. It early. What are the chances that you will survive this? You know, I know. Like real early. Yeah. Like with breast cancer. You know now the chances of survival are better. Even a tiny pain created. No Carson of the pancreas pretty much curtains. You have a small near Entercom tumor pancreas, and you discover a guy said we should be joyous. We can go after that. So I'll let you assets. Actually, it's my position. I don't disagree. Dr drew. I think that right now the standard of care for treatment of urinary cancers, if it's isolated is to respect it because that's the only hope for cure. You know, the the reason why I'm involved in foundation because I have a family member who's close to me who has this disease, and and there are many people with this disease. In fact, right now, the United States, we believe that over one hundred and seventy thousand Americans currently, I have this have been diagnosed with this disease. What we don't know how many more have not yet been diagnosed, and you know, this is really a six and a half fold increase over the past forty years. So we're seeing a lot more this disease, and we did back in the seventy s going back. So I think. The real focus of this disease. Like mini cancers is really focusing on trying to make sure that to diagnose it as soon as possible. And if it's isolated reception surgical reception is the best hope for a cure. I have a patient with an adrenal tumor that I thought was a what's feels Chroma Saitama feels are not in Iran corner or they Narendra Anderson. Feels they are part of the neuron into the absolutely all right. So I want wanna ask you this. It's not a fear turned out. But I'm still worried because this is a lot of bizarre things are happening. And I can't identify what it is. I can't get the insurance to pay for an endocrinologist. And I'm sitting here going, how am I going to work? This damn thing up. What are your recommendations for something like that where it's Lear you thinking neuro endocrine, but you can't quite nail it down. You know, I I would refer the patient again. Thank you. I can't get them to do. It is driving me. Crazy. I worry about this every day. So any any advice? Yeah. No. I think that's a real challenge because we really talking about a sub special field where their specific scanning that is. Study either. I know what you're talking about. I can't get there. First of all I have to send them to a tertiary center. And Secondly this insurance company that this patient endocrinologist? I mean, it's unbelievable. It's unbelievable. The world we practice. This is why doctors are unhappy all the time. I save Dr L let you finish. I'm sorry to see you push one of my buttons. No, no. I I understand your frustration. And you know in general. The insurance companies do with your good job. What's he dare? You. Yeah. There are situations. Like this I've encountered, and I try to speak with the folks on the phone, and and really also solicit and try to engage the patient in helping them advocate for themselves as well. This is a primitive patient with lots of difficulty cognitively and a family that is not Fisk enough to do this. And that's it. So it's me doing it every day for months. That's how our system works everybody. That's it. But again, this is why common but somewhat opaque conditions like ner endocrine tumors can get missed number one. And number two. I don't understand how people can live in a world where somebody like Steve Jobs dies of this. When he had potentially curable thing. I just I we were we were all robbed of this guy. He was robbed of his life to allow him to believe he could treat this with diet was the most I just looked at it when it when he started. And I thought this is a disaster and the low, and behold, it was so let's not let that happen to any more of us adeptly is there their website or any place subject send people? Absolutely. Hey you. I would encourage people who are interested in learning. More to come to the neuro enter consumer research foundation website. And you can find that online at WWW dot e r s dot ORG..
