"Welcome back. This is the time where ants are listeners question now. Again, I want to remind you, JJ virgin dot com slash diabetes to grab all that cool stuff from today. And I am going to do a shout out to a question from Kerry, who joined me on Facebook and said, JJ, my husband just got diagnosed with diabetes, whereas the first place you would start. And again, you know, I love to put the questions with the podcast, so they all fit together nice and pretty with the bow. So here's the thing. And I loved it that Jonathan said this. You know, in the perfect world, we'd have a checklist, which it sounds like what you're going to probably be seeing here. And I know his book goes through and covers all of these different areas. But you would look at, all right. Blood sugar balance. So a diet that focuses on fat fiber and protein. So that you are really lowering your sugar impact. You've gotten rid of your food and tolerances, and you're really using food to balance your blood sugar. But sleep is another key one. If you're not sleeping well, you will have insulin resistance. You will have issues with obesity. In fact, great studies show that even if you're eating right and exercising failure to get your recommended deep quality sleep, let's put you at risk for obesity. So sleep is going to be key. So is stress. Because the same hormones that get messed up with poor sleep get messed up with stress and stress creates poor sleep and lowers testosterone with men. Next one, of course, is the right type of exercise, which is high intensity interval training. Burst out training and resistance training, which helps restore insulin sensitivity and helps your body burn fat better. And then things that help sensitize the instant receptors like fish oil and vitamin D always take that with K and so when you look at this, if I had to pick one thing, I guess I would probably start with working with the right diet help balance your blood sugar. But again, if it turns out that you are not sleeping high quality sleep during the normal circadian rhythm, you could be doing everything else right, and that would be a problem. If it turns out that you're stressed out like crazy or you're deficient in vitamin D or you're not exercising at all, so you gotta look at this all as a comprehensive thing. And so what I would say curious, look at everything I just said, and go, where is he the falling down the most? Let's start there. And then once we can do that checklist, we'll go to the next. I'm going to do a big shout out again, get the show notes, grab Jonathan's freebie and get the book to set point at because that'll help you start to move in this. But again, just if you want to get started this moment, think to yourself, which is the biggest issue, let's start with that one. And then we can add onto all of that. And I think the reason that Jonathan scheme is tremendous results is he's working people through a program where they focus on all of those they take all of that into play and just fix it fast and when you do, you get magical things happening like those results he was saying. All right, I will see you next week. If you haven't subscribed yet, make sure you do, so you don't miss any of the goodness and hopefully I will see you over on my social media.

"So there's that side of it too. And that is so critical. And that's why I just want to highlight when I say 8 to 12 pounds. I'm saying weight loss, but I want everyone to really understand that to be clear in 21 days you could lose way more weight than that. If you just starved yourself. But that's horribly unhealthy. So this is 8 to 12 pounds with none of the side effects of starvation. So when you say fat loss, that's I hope at some point and my buddy doctor Allen Christensen's really focusing on getting this term out. We've got to really get off weight loss and get on to fat loss. The last thing you really want to do is lose lean muscle mass. You want to hold on to that as tightly as you can and build it. And you got to lose fat. I mean, and we can't looking at it is the same thing and losing weight is just ridiculous. Because you could be losing weight, but I always say if you're losing your weight and not losing your waist, you're making yourself worse not better. If you're losing weight, but you're not losing fat, you have just damage your metabolism further. I love that you mentioned waste measurement. We ask we do monthly 21 day challenges at sane solution. They're free of charge. You just bring the book. We will put this into all the show notes too, for listening. So I know we've got some goodies for you too. So we will be putting this in. So everyone can take advantage of this. Okay. Thank you. And one of the measurements we require. Everyone to take is waste circumference because I too like you. I wish we would never talk about weight ever again. I wish we would talk about waste and the average there is four inches around the waist in 21 days. Yeah, I mean, that's what matters. That is the key thing is if we learn to look at weight in terms of body composition and look at body fat, then we'd have an entirely different information. And we'd also be able to monitor body water, super important, and then look at waste and waste to hip, all of a sudden now you've got the key metrics that matter. But again, I think a big takeaway we're saying here is monitoring your weight just as this metric is not giving you the information that you need to know if you're being successful or not super duper important. Now I know you have something cool for everybody listening. I always love it when our guests give great freemium gifts. So what do you have for everybody? Earlier, JJ, you asked, how can we get started? What is the one thing we could do today? And if we were only talking for 30 seconds, I had to be really short answer, I would say the number one thing you could do today to lower your set point to help you avoid or reverse diabetes is to drink a specific form of delicious, but very low in sugar and very high in veggie smoothie. We call these sane green smoothies. And the freebie is a wonderful recipe book. That's going to provide you with 99 of those sane green smoothies setpoint lowering and diabetes defeating smoothies, which is delicious and great. Oh, I love that. Diabetes defeating smoothies. Awesome. So you will be able to grab this. I'll also include some of the links to Jonathan's website to is awesome book you will want to have the set point diet at JJ virgin dot com slash diabetes, you know, the thing that I've like always super appreciate about you is you are an insane researcher and then really good at putting things into algorithms. I know that comes from your background, your gear background. Yeah, it sounds like this exactly here. You went and did deep dive research and then created the algorithm to fix the problem. And it's just awesome because what an important thing to tackle. Thank you so much. Well, thank you for having me, JJ. All.

"Mental picture. And it works with human psychology. One of the most written about in popular psychology books in the world is this don't think of a white bear study, which is tell someone, don't think of a white bear, what do you think about? And the distinction is that the human brain, your mind doesn't understand the word not. Or no. So if you say not sugar, all your brain hears is sugar, and then it becomes hyper aware of sugar and you have sugar on the brain. And the hardest, the worst thing you can do to yourself if you don't want to constantly be preoccupied with something is to try to not think about it because there is no not thinking about something. You have to pick something else to think about instead. And that's why we always want to focus on substitution rather than deprivation. Yes. I call it my lateral shifts my swaps because I will I learned early on that if I took things out and I didn't give people other options, they actually could do a lot worse things. Like I said, all right, well, don't drink that. And then all of a sudden, I'm like, well, I didn't tell you to drink diet soda. What are you doing over there, you know? So you gotta give people the better option out there. So how do we never go there? Like, I'm assuming now and I'd love to see it before I even before we go there. How big of a problem is it right now, Jonathan? I'm not exaggerating when I say that if we do not take action as individuals and as a nation, the United States of America will literally collapse due to diabetes. If we're no other reason because of the economic burden, let me put this in perspective where you just real quick. If you look at just diabetes. So this is just diabetes. And obesity is more common than diabetes. When you put them together, we have a total mess. But just diabetes. Two years ago, the economic burden of the United States of the healthcare costs of just diabetes was around a $146 billion, which is a big number, oh my gosh. But let's put that in perspective. The total healthcare cost from all sources of tobacco, $50 billion. So three X more than all of tobacco, just for one half of this problem. And then when we look at it from an emotional perspective, I mean that the suffering, the human toll, it is not an exaggeration to say 9 out of ten of us are experiencing this personally are on a path to experience it personally or have someone we love dearly in our life who is impacted by it. So now that we know that it's and the other part of this is it's just getting more so. It's not like that's just a static number. This is exponentially increasing. So we've got this issue of this big problem that's just becoming more so and at younger ages. And that's to me the real real tragedy. So what do we do to avoid it? And what do we do to turn it around? The number one thing we can do is to take a first I think we kind of just need to pause. We just need to pause and do a little bit of a pattern interrupt because frankly, the last 40 years of what we've been taught is so backwards that it has literally caused this problem. Eating less or eating diet food or waking up really early and starving yourself of sleep to go jog on pavement next to cars that are shooting off exhaust. These things are actually elevating your set point and are actually predisposing you to diabetes and there's nothing worse than trying really hard and ending up worse off. So instead what we need to do again, just like pause, like hit the reset button. And then focus on higher quality food, higher quality relationships, higher quality sleep, higher quality movement, and a higher quality self image or conversation with yourself. And we go over all 5 of those components in the new book. Awesome. What kind of results are you seeing? In the short term, we are seeing semi unbelievable results. And in the long term, similarly, unbelievable results, which is great and what makes me most encouraged is that we've seen that with my team over at sane solution dot com that especially for females who have struggled with their weight for three, four, 5 decades, we are seeing consistent double digit changes in body composition in 21 days with no hunger or deprivation. And I want to highlight that for a second because I'm not saying it's not just magically happens. I'm not saying that there's no effort involved. But to say that in 21 days, someone who is, let's say, postmenopausal, who has struggled with her weight for 40 years, can gain lean muscle tissue and lose more than 15 pounds of fat in 21 days without ever feeling hungry. He's 22 15 pounds of fat. 21 days. Yes, we're seeing 21 days we're seeing lean muscle tissue gain of three to 5 pounds and fat loss just fat loss of up to 15 pounds. Like that's insane. I've never heard that. Yes, and that is, that would be the best results, the average results you're looking at crazy. Yes. Okay, yeah. So what's average? I mean, that's amazing. What is the typical? The results may vary. The results may be someone who follows the 21 day protocol because it is so therapeutic, on average, and even in the toughest cases, which is females who have weight cycled many times who are above the age of 40, we are seeing 8 to 12 pound weight loss on average. I love hearing this, too, and I love that you just said that. This is one that drives me crazy. I remember reading fashion, I remember where I read the study and they go, you know, losing losing and gaining weight does nothing to hurt your metabolism. I'm like, just if you look at what happens when you lose and gain weight, how could it not? That's the silliest thing I've ever heard. Especially if you're doing these deprivation diets where you're losing muscle mass and then you're gaining more fat and losing muscle mass and how to stand not hurt your metabolism besides hurting your psyche..

"Really need everyone to understand in our healthcare system to understand as well is that if you're suffering with overweight, there is a 90% chance that you are going to suffer with pre diabetes or diabetes and if you're suffering from prediabetes or diabetes, there's a 90% chance that you're going to struggle with overweight. So to put that in perspective, if you smoke for 40 years, there's a 10% chance that you're going to get lung cancer. This is when we start talking about weight and we start talking about diabetes, honestly, they're one and the same. And we've got to understand that. Wow, so you know, you think about you go, okay, well, I know I think I know what causes diabetes. I think I know it causes you being overweight, but I was looking at the NHANES study and they were saying that it was the toxins and the fat cells. That were creating diabetes in that someone could be obese. And if they didn't have the toxins and their fat cells, and I kind of looked and I went, well, who wouldn't have toxins in their fat cells? Unless you're living in a bubble, it's pretty impossible to talk. Like, there's nowhere. You could go to like the most pristine parts of the world and you still have it. So what is causing this hole now that we obesity creates diabetes, diabetes, creates obesity, they go together, what's causing this whole thing? I want to look at that in two levels, JJ. The first is what are the components of the body that break down to cause this? Because I think once we understand that, we can then understand what are the external factors that then cause those things in the body to break down. Is that cool? That's totally cool. All right, so first is we got to look at this somewhat holistically, and we've got to say that your brain neurological inflammation specifically, your gut and dysbiosis down there in the little microbiota and your hormones being out of balance. All three of those things are taking place and are the underlying cause of both obesity and diabetes. And one of the great mysteries of our time is why in some people, they manifest first as weight gain, and in other people, they manifest first as prediabetes. We do not know why that happens, but we do know the underlying causes of both. And that's again just regulation and breakdown in the brain gut and hormones and how they communicate. Now, when we talk about environmental factors, there is not one cause, as you know, there's food. There's an environment, but from a macro perspective, if we did want to simplify it, it is we could simplify to one word and that's quality. As our air quality degrades as our food quality degrades, as our relationship quality degrades, as our sleep quality degrades, as these things as a quality drops, the quality of our health drops, and that's why the focus on living better rather than eating less is so key. Yeah, eating less definitely hasn't helped the matter. Not at all. Well, first of all, we can talk intermittent fasting and fasting. But no one's going to eat less for extended periods of time unless they're stuck. What was that research where they're doing the caloric restriction with optimal nutrition? They put them all in that bubble thing. You know? So much you're going in the bubble thing. Probably not working. But you know what I'm hearing here. And it actually makes a ton of sense as you start to look at, okay, poor sleep quality brought on by technology. And then more stress brought on by technology. And then social isolation brought on by technology. And then poor diet, less exercise, more toxins, it's sort of like any one of those things could create the problem, but then you put them all together and take your body as a history book and this genetic labs where now you're flipping switches and that it's like that whole thing creates a mess. That's exactly right, JJ. And I think that's one of the things I'm really excited about with this new book is that to be clear, this is not a criticism. It's just a statement of fact. You know, there are so many books written that focus on one thing. Wheat, or gluten, or fat, or and we have to have those deep dives in individual topics. It's extremely important. But as you mentioned, there is not one cause of diabetes. There's not one cause of obesity. We need if we need to really, and this is one of the yes, this is a quote unquote diet book, but we take some pretty unique approaches in it. Once we, as individuals, understand that we personally are of the highest quality. And we take on that mindset. And then we say, look, if I'm a high quality person, I deserve nothing but high quality. And I will live with nothing but high quality because there is not one thing except for this abandonment of quality living. You know what's so cool? Is and you do not know this because we have not talked for like a year or two, which is so crazy. Will not happen again, Jonathan. But I surveyed my community and I said, if you know where you want to be with your health or your weight, what's going on. And the number one reason they gave me was that they didn't feel worthy. That they did not feel high quality basically is what you just said. And I think when you start with, okay, I'm a high quality person. So how would I if you had a racehorse? I'm pretty sure that you wouldn't have the racehorse and go you know and I think you're not going to get to sleep that much before this race and the stretchy out a bit and I'm going to give you some McDonald's. Like I'm pretty sure you wouldn't do that with the racehorse, right? So we need to treat ourselves the same with that. And go from this beginning point of yeah, we're worth it. We're high quality. So how would you treat a high quality? How would you treat a high quality car? How would you treat a high quality racer and treat yourself better than that? Because it all starts with you. Now, you call this book the set point diet. What do you mean by that? What is a set point? Your set point is a fun colloquial way to talk about a much more deep scientific comment concept, which I will only cover in brief here, which is the concept of homeostasis, which chances are if an individual took high school biology class. They've heard that term before, which just means that living organisms automatically pursue balance period. There's a reason there are not living organisms on the sun. That's a very extreme, unbalanced climate, so it doesn't support a biological life. So if you look at, for example, your blood sugar. We all know that if your blood sugar goes up, your body will take steps to bring it back down. And if it goes down, your body will take steps to bring it back up. Same thing happens with blood pressure. And we also know that those systems can break down those automatic balancing systems, those sort of set point regulated systems can break down. And when they do, we say you have a disease in the case of blood pressure. It's called hypertension in the case of blood sugar. It's called diabetes. The same thing applies to the level of fat on our bodies or energy balance. We have a set point range of about ten or 15 pounds that our brain gotten hormones work together to maintain and defend. And that range can go up or down based on the quality, not quantity of inputs that we put in our body. JJ, that is so important because with quantity, we can pull ourselves away from that range temporarily, but that's why it always feels like our bodies fighting to pull us back into it. Quantity pulls you temporarily out of that range, but quality changes the range itself. You know, I love that too, because the minute you talk about taking things out, people are me are like, ah, right? When you focus more on just improving the quality, in fact, even adding, it's a very different.

"Die obesity I first heard this, doctor Mark Hyman was talking about. I think I saw him do something on Doctor Oz with it. And I was super excited when my buddy Jonathan Baylor came out with the set point diet book and tackled this. So we're going to be talking about diabetes today. What the heck is it?

"Present in the state where they would be available If you were someone who knows gambling problem called 105 two two four 7 zero zero Kettleman show off to Palmdale California hi Mike welcome to the show All right Rick thank you very much Hey I'm 50 years old been working as a company for 38 years So I've got a good pension and pretty good 401k balance I'm thinking about retiring maybe 8 years or so And I plan on using the pension and so security in the 401k will just be for fun stuff hopefully or maybe helping out a little bit My wife has no working credit so when I take social security she will take the spousal benefits and get half of that And what I get So looking at my last statement social security statement looking at the different stages I can take a full retirement of 67 or early at 62 or deferred at 70 And here and everybody say you know if you wait you'll get more so security money but if I wait till 67 rather than taking the earliest of 62 I won't actually collect more money until I'm 80 years old if you take the total amount or if I wait till 7 I won't get any more money until I'm 83 years old with my health and my family history living into my 80s probably isn't going to happen So unless I figure my wife's going to survive me for quite a bit longer than I do what are the factors am I missing the figure I should wait until 67 or 70 rather than claiming a 62 None You have been analyzed it correctly It is entirely a matter of life expectancy And you've summarized it very clearly although I want to take a little bit of issue with the terminology you use which is a knit You said you don't get more money until It's not that I want to define more money It's not that you get more money per year You're having more money cumulatively Here's the bottom line As you said it all very eloquently Mike you can receive benefits starting at 62 You can defer each year all the way up until late 70 The longer you wait to start the higher your monthly benefit will be once you do start So you get a lot more money at age 70 than you do at age 62 But you've missed out on 8 years of income And therefore on a cumulative basis if you're going to die prior to about 80 age 83 then you're right You should take the money at 62 But if you're going to live longer than 83 80 45 somewhere in that range If you're going to live longer than that then it's better off in the long run to having weighted until you're 70 In your case you clearly can afford to wait until you're 70 based on your pension income The million bucks in your 401k and relative to your lifestyle as you've described it So you can afford to wait and therefore when you finally do get the benefit at 70 you'll have a much bigger benefit than if you start taking the money at 62 or 67 But as you noted you're concerned you're not going to last till 85 or 90 And therefore in the long run it's not in your best interest In your best interest with a shorter life expectancy take the money at 62 Don't spend it throw it into your savings Let it accumulate there And build a new separate piggy bank of your social security benefits That money will be there for your wife upon your demise And in your case if you're assumption proves true that your life expectancy is short then yeah you're absolutely right Take the money at 8 62 Excellent No it's not excellent You've died Well no it's not but here's the other thing I don't know what your medical condition is that you're concerned about But one thing I want to point out to you is the advent of exponential technologies and the increased innovations in the field of medicine and neuroscience We are expanding life expectancies dramatically because medical science is continuing to improve curing many of the illnesses that are the leading causes of death Have you ever heard of typhoid or diphtheria Yeah sure Sure You've heard of those Medical science has eradicated all of those Today the leading causes of death are heart disease Lung disease Respiratory illnesses diabetes obesity These are the leading causes of death today Well don't you think that over the next 50 years medical science is going to resolve those two That's the widespread expectation of medical researchers and futurists based on the increased development of computer technology and the innovations that comes along with that Artificial intelligence and robotics such as we've got da Vinci which is a robotic surgeon We've got nanotechnology bioinformatics BioTech Neuroscience all of these technologies that are developing that are likely to wipe out a lot of the diseases that are today killing a lot of people So think about your assumption I'll give you an example It's very close to home My wife's father He made the observation a few years ago He's now in his mid 80s But he said that he when he reached age 70 72 he said I am now the longest living male member of my family in my family's history No male had ever reached age 70 or 72 I remember what it was Other than him And what we all noted is that a few years earlier in his late 60s he had open heart surgery A technology that didn't exist for his uncles his father is grandfather's and so on and so on What would have killed them which did kill his elders didn't kill him And that's my point to you So before your quick to say hey I'm not going to last into my 80s I want to challenge that promise That will be something to think about it I want you to have the conversation with your doctor That's right Because your doctor will be able to say to you hey Mike forget it you're out of here You know just go have a final meal because you're done I don't care what comes along Or your doctor will say hell yeah you got to do is not fall down the stairs and you'll live to a hundred Very good Okay Mike I wish you the best Yeah I'd appreciate it Thank you That was Mike And Palmdale California here on the Rick Edelman show off the island Lake Illinois John is with a side John How you doing Good Rick How are you sir Doing well thanks How can I help you First of all Rick I'd like to thank you for all the knowledge over the years You in part to me and to all our fellow listeners and all your philanthropy also Thank you So Rick I'm calling about my mom My mom has dementia and we just placed her into a memory care unit And we have a contract on her home It's in the processes of going to closing So when this is all said and done my mom will have approximately a $190,000 in cash And the cost of the memory care unit is 5500 a month And my mother also has social security income of approximately $1900 a month So in about two years I am estimating we'll have to probably start to look at applying for Medicaid for my mother And so my question is with this $190,000 in cash I was thinking about placing a $100,000 of it into ticker symbol O STI X which is oster wise income band fund I know that there is a possibility of price fluctuation but it's not that much but it still feels kind of scary to kind of place this money there I'm just trying to get a little more bang for the buck No Or should I go with what my gut feelings telling me to do which is put it all in the bank and maybe do some short term standard staggered and laddered CDs That's exactly right John Do not try to make more money out of this 190 grand in cash Your mom's going to get the risk is too great And it's totally unnecessary Your mom has a little over four years almost four and a half years worth of income for this memory care unit that she'll be living in So she's not going to run out of money for four four and a half years At which point as you noted Medicaid will take over her costs So if your strategy manages to succeed instead of having four and a half years worth of income she'll have maybe 5 years worth of income So what What are you trying to accomplish By that time your mom's going to be 96 97 years of age You're taking a risk with the money that isn't really serving any useful purpose The only way to contemplate is if you're looking at it from an inheritance perspective if you want to take the attitude whatever money mom doesn't spend I get to keep as an inheritance after she dies Okay now we can invest the money with you in mind instead of having your mom in mind And that means you'd invest the money with an asset allocation that is for you And I'm assuming you're in your 60s.

A ton of ailments aches pains and overall health. It's the same with intermittent fasting. This is really the key to putting it all together. And i met fast and complements the ketogenic diet and makes all come together at first animated fasting. Sounds like you are depriving yourself and starving to death for long periods of time. You may think of a rumbling stomach and cravings but forget about all that you will soon find that this is a perfect fit for you and you will see dramatic changes and a relatively short period of time. There are many benefits to adding intermittent fasting to your ketogenic diet. On the inter-web. I found six great reasons to commit to intermittent fasting. It promotes weight loss. One of the major intimate fasting benefits is its ability to rev up fat burning and help the pounds just slide off and fasting results in increased fat burning and fast weight loss by forcing your body to use up fat stores in your body as fuel similar to the keno diet in which you deprive your body of carbohydrates and force it to us up stored fat for energy. It also improves blood sugar. Some studies have found that intermittent fasting benefits your blood sugar levels by keeping them. Well regulated and preventing sugar spikes and crashes and in one study participants with diabetes fasted an average of sixteen hours daily for two weeks not only did intermittent fasting cause weight loss and decreased and caloric intake but also helped significantly reduced blood.

All from mit she has authored over three dozen peer review journal papers on topics relating to human disease and nutritional deficiencies and toxic exposures focusing specifically on the herbicide glyphosate and the mineral sulfur. Dr summit is the author of the book. Toxic legacy how the weed killer. Life is destroying our health and the environment. And it's what we're discussing today. You can find. Dr sun on twitter at stephanie. Nf that's s. c. n. e. f. f. or on facebook at stephanie. Dot senate dot five such an honor again. I have to say it to have you on the air with us today. dr fm. We're talking about and our health. Let me start with this. How does life estate impair your immune system making it more difficult to clear a virus like covid nineteen very good question and i think that is a serious Situation that we're in right now. And in fact in brazil in uk there's various countries that are having a hard time controlling india. They're all having a hard time controlling kobe. And they're all heavy users of and i think there's a connection there. I have a whole chapter in my book on the immune system is quite complex. And it's quite interesting. And one of the critical things is the mighty andrea. i mean i think like disrupts Both the matt might economy And the ability to clear the Debris for example. If i fell gets killed by a virus he can't be removed. The immune cells become very sick in the presence of glyphosate and the mighty country are essential for the immune cells to have energy to fight to fight the bug. And then they were. Maybe the worst part is that the the there are these Molecules that are released for example. There's surfactant proteins in the lungs that are able normally would be able to trap viruses and make it much easier to catch them and remove them because that's the whole thing. The virus comes into the long. See if you can quickly get on them and remove them before they start multiplying. You can clear the disease and not even get sick from the symptoms and the The immune cells are being weakened by glyphosate and probably by other toxic chemicals toxic metals. Many things affect the mitochondria and might conrail stress might have contra. Disorder is a major factor in many many diseases that we're experiencing today so our might a are really under stress and there's many papers that have shown that life is a causes oxidative damage in the maya country interferes with critical enzymes. Such as sucks Garage names that are central to the metabolism of sugar for example. And so this is one reason why we end up with diabetes. Diabetes is linked to eight diabetes obesity. Those are actors bad outcome and covert and those are highly. They're going up dramatically in our population. Exactly separate the rise glyphosate usage core crops people say well correlation doesn't mean causation. But i think it does. And life say to my book disease diabetes obesity. All of those things that are going up are caused by life is as disruption of metabolism in my country and this affects all the cells but when it affects immune cells. It makes it very difficult for them to clear. The virus and the virus starts multiplying wildly in the lungs. And then you get into a very toxic situation where the adaptive immune system kicks in and releases all these side of times it end up destroying the tissue in the lungs and then you can't breathe you know you can't get oxygen. It's a real downward spiral. Starting point is the weak immune system that was set up by the previous exposure for many years and it affects our brain as well. A lot of people don't know that yes i know. Well well no. I mean the glyphosate. Yes yeah yeah. You mentioned a study in your book that shows glyphosate becomes part of the tissues of all species of animals and plants that are exposed to it. Why is this this finding particularly chilling. Yes this is what really Made me wake up and take notice. I was studying glaxy trying to figure out exactly how that it's doing all these all this damage because it's kind of like how could one chemical so bad and i think i figured it out and anthony samsonite collaborated to figure this out. basically life is a little bit of biochemistry here. Glyphosate is an amino acids and amino acids normally are the building blocks of the proteins. Those are the things that dna code coach force. That's very important. The famous four letter code watson and crick. That code is coding. For protein synthesis and the proteins are are built like beads on a string with each bead being one of the amino acids. and there's about twenty m very critical building blocks of proteins and the proteins workhorses of the body. They're the enzymes transporters there the in ion uptake. I mean they just control so many things in the body So when they're messed up you're in trouble and life is what i believe is happening. Is that it. Substituting glycemic by mistake during protein synthesis this smallest amino acid. It has no side chains. And so there's a very special fits in a pocket that no no other amino acids will fit into because they're too big gripe is has the same property it has exactly the same shape as the seen except that it has extra material stuck onto its nitrogen atom which has to be outside of the pocket in order to hook up so it's the part that's in the pocket that fits and the guy gets into the protein by mistake place of life guy seeing and that extra materials ticking off at the nitrogen atom causes all kinds of trouble so certain protein certain crises tremendous trouble really wreck that proteins ability to do its job and i can go through and i did in my book. I mentioned so many proteins. That have critical lysine residues and if you replace them with something that looks like lifestyle. Because there's some amino acids kind of have similar properties lifestyle so you can look at studies where they what happens if you know and then you can life. They would have the same effect. This and i've done this and it's really quite striking because it becomes a way to explain all these diseases that are going up. Each one has particular proteins involved. It's quite fascinating. It's a giant puzzle. And i love puzzle so a lot of it in my book..

Now my glucose is thirty points higher in my bloodstream. And i'm not going to use it right and this is where i'm like. Oh my gosh. Imagine all the people who live there day like this. All the time they have chronic stressors chronic fight or flight triggers. All the time and on top of it. They don't have like a release to burn off their blood sugar so to speak right there. Maybe not as. They're not as active as they could be. They're not as mobile as they. They want to be and so they're not able to sort of burn up and use up. This glucose and it leads to increased risk for metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease. And you know it just perpetuates the stress cycle and so that was a really big. I opener for me that when i do get heated because i'm emotional before i'm logical that is affecting my blood sugar and i should probably bring it back now. That's a that's a big off for sure. I know that one of the things that i teach the clients that i work with is to use the first and foremost but i find that for me. One of the other things that works very well is getting a little bit of movement after a meal to be able to bring that sensitivity is amazing. When i have an exercise i start contracting my muscles. how much more respondent my receptors to insulin. For number one but two to tie back. How does that have to do with adrenals just to tie back. What is blood. Sugar have to do with that cortisol. Maybe explain to our listeners while we would use gym glass for cortisol. If let's put it this way if glucose had a resume and on its resume. The very first thing was like it's top skill. What is it good at cortisol. 's with the recipe glucose amanda cortisol cortisol had to resume the top skillets. Good at managing glucose that's number one job everyone thinks cortisol is about stress is a large general term. Or oh my gosh. Court is all makes me gained belly fat but the why and the how is that. It manages glucose. So cortisol is a glucose corticosteroid. That's the family. Falls under glucose because glucose is the number one thing so when your cortisol goes up then your body breaks down glucose for you and makes it available into your bloodstream primarily for your brain but also of course for other things so that you can deal with handle with.

We get mad at an email. We get mad at the news. We get mad at mail. We get mad at our kids and we're not actually going to burn it up. Fight runaway do something and so it.

The sun at the second thing is it can happen at any age at fifty year old can be incumbent yet and nineteen year old lady campbell accidentally fine with the gains so these are the two important facts to consider what it comes to the aging changes incontinence. I will mean we will be talking about blood today. I think it will be too much. We'll maybe talk about bowels. If you have any questions but let's concentrate on the blood or in today's podcast.

Will that small vessel. Schemic changes are Disease that of course has an impact was won't our bodies regulated by multiple mechanisms up mainly by the brain. If you had the blood vessels of the brain for that will have impact on your brother and the blood to contracting voluntarily So these these are the main main aging changes. They need to be arou- make sense so we need to take care of our brains that we don't have bathroom issues. All that's that's most set jerry and go for a danger. They you a good point because we need to take account of our brain people with strokes people who go wall man Let's say that there are many reasons for strokes. Most common causes smoking diabetes. Obesity and sold this risk factors lead has had have recovered strokes and of course strokes is one of the main risk factors developing bladder problems as well. So what patients.

And the first thing is incontinence and aging are not the same thing incontinence at any age is not normal as we get older and if we start experiencing incontinence episodes, we shouldn't just say well, what do you expect? I'm eighty-five. I'm ninety, of course big things happen. No, it is not normal to get incontinence.

I think it would be too much we will maybe talk about bowels if you have any questions, but let's concentrate on the bladder or in today's podcast. So wage it comes to changes aging changes, of course their bladder muscle which recalled the truth and muscle does get a little bit of a mind of its own and often get more contractions more involuntary contractions and suddenly out of the blue you might have been to the toilet only half an hour ago and you start getting urges. So that's one of birth. Changes we experience the capacity or how much urine the bladder can hold before. It tells your brain that you need to empty your bladder that capacity goes down as well. And then of course, let's not forget this way grow older. We develop other problems most commonly Mobility problems arthritis muscle weakness. And of course the pure ability to go to the toilet becomes a challenge and not getting there in time. Sometimes can lead to them little accident. So these are off main page and changes we need to know about and of course these couples ways either changes in their body. For example, as we grow older we develop some Faron and hardening of the blood vessels on the brain will call that small vessel ischemic changes of small vessel disease and that of course has an impact of course wage. Our blood is regulated by multiple mechanisms. But mainly by the brain if you get the blood vessels of the brain fed up that will have impact on your blood on and so forth cause the blood it to a contract involuntarily. So these These are the main main engine changes we need to be aware of makes sense. So we need to take care of our brains that we don't have or bathroom issues that small site Jimmy and if we go further into the you made a really good point there because we need to take account of our brain people with Strokes people who go home and let's say there are many of the reasons for strokes but the most common causes smoking crack diabetes obesity. And so this risk factors lead us to have recovered strokes. And of course Strokes is one of the main risk factors for developing blood problems as well. A lot of patience with stroke do develop incontinence do develop these involuntary contractions which in medical terms of recall all were active bladder syndrome. So it leads to urge incontinence but they're simple mechanism is imagine your bladder it consists of one muscle which is called the truth of muscle and it just contracts went down involuntarily. So that's a basic so of that overactive bladder syndrome is one of the commonest conditions which we see in our poor stroke patients. So absolutely take care of your brain. That's the one thing doctors don't seem to know how to fix too. Well, so preventive measures are definitely a good idea. I'm talking about the nerves. I mean we touched on the brain but talking about the nerves, of course, there is a I mean the blood is no regulated, of course amongst many other dog. Mechanisms other you illogical conditions are common causes for all worked up blood and generally blood of problems countenance problems. It's a multiple sclerosis for example and Walterboro, Ms. Patients experienced problems with continents. And of course, let's not forget dementia acute delirium episodes. She consents disease beliefs goes on.
The Importance Of Diversifying Alzheimer's Research
"John. Let's talk about what alzheimer's disease as an how it's related to other forms of dementia right so dementia is an overarching term. That refers to thinking and memory problems from lots of causes including stroke or head injury. Alzheimer's is far and away. The most common cause of dementia at least in later life and it refers to the specific process where these toxic plaques and tangles build up in the brain and eventually start killing neurons. Those are the brain cells. We used to think and remember an for black americans. How much greater is their risk of developing alzheimer's or some other form of dementia. Some studies show that the risk is twice as high as it is for a white american though the exact amount still kind of in question and by the way there's also some evidence that lat next people also have a higher risk and asian americans appear to have a low risk than white americans. Okay and do. Scientists know why they're such huge disparities not fully. Some of the difference probably has to do with known risk factors for alzheimer's so health problems like heart disease. High blood pressure diabetes obesity. All of these increase a person's risk for alzheimer's and these factors are more common in black americans and they are in white americans. There's also at least one. Genetic risk factor. Okay people who have one or two copies of a gene called abeille. Four are more likely to develop alzheimer's and the four gene appears to be more common in people of african ancestry but scientists really don't understand alzheimer's very well in anyone. They've been testing all of these alzheimer's drugs for decades and really nothing has worked so research is still. Don't know whether all of these factors put together can fully explain why alzheimer's is so much more common in black americans. John that's really tough to hear. I mean you mentioned healthcare earlier. The you know that black americans have less access to care for loved ones with alzheimer's. What do we know about that. Just a couple of weeks ago. Alzheimer's association released a report on race ethnicity and alzheimer's and i talked with brain scientists. Maria correo who is now the chief science officer there. here's part of what. She told me about what they learned from a survey of people who were caring for a friend or family member with alzheimer's among nonwhite caregivers half say they've faced discrimination when navigating through the healthcare system with a top concern being the providers. Don't even listen to what they're saying. Perhaps because of their race color or ethnicity that's really frustrating and not surprisingly black americans. Were the most likely to report discrimination. Okay so we've talked about risk we've talked about care. Let's talk about research so as scientists are trying to find treatments. What can be done to make. Sure that black americans are included in that research. Several things they can change. The racial and ethnic composition of the people who do research black researchers are more likely to have ties within black communities and are more likely to make sure that studies are inclusive. Researchers can also change the racial and ethnic composition of the people who participate in research studies and they can focus on questions about why. Alzheimer's appears to act differently in people of different races. Yeah i mean. These are really good goals to have of course but our researchers getting any closer to achieving them. I've seen some encouraging signs especially when it comes to diversifying scientific studies so for example a couple of years ago researchers formed a group called the african ancestry neuro science research initiative. I spoke to one of the brain scientists involved. Dr cuff weeds rossa. He's a psychiatrist and a professor at duke university. He told me he joined the effort when he realized that his own ancestors who came from west africa had been excluded from genetic studies of brain disorders. It was clearly an immediately evident to me how much of a problem this was right because for me as one who does what we call basic research. In other words. I take the genes that are found in human gene studies and then i studied them in model organisms in other words things like mice or rats and understand how it changes other brain works. It meant that. I was studying genes. That were specifically related to onus in folks of european ancestry which would mean that cough fleet. Derosa was only studying the genes of a narrow segment of people. Which sounds pretty. messed up. If you're trying to figure out the genetic story of how. Alzheimer's affects all people like what is the scientific justification for this approach. Years ago the logic was that it would be easier to find genes responsible for brain disorders in people of european descent. The reason is that they tend to be very similar genetically to one another. The genes of people of african ancestry vary a lot more now. Technology has made genetic sequencing so widely available that you can easily study all kinds of people and scientifically you should because people with different ancestries can have genetic differences that affect their risk for diseases like alzheimer's absolutely and have scientists learned anything new about alzheimer's disease from studying it in black americans. Maybe you know that. Jean april four. That increases a person's risk of developing alzheimer's. Especially if you inherit two copies one from each of your parents so the gene is more common among black americans but it may be less risky for them. Some other genetic factors seems to protect people of african ancestry from the bad effects of a four. I spoke with dr daniel weinberger. He's a scientist at the lieber institute in baltimore. And he's also part of the african ancestry neuroscience research initiative. Here's what he told me about april four. If you inherit the risk form of that gene from both of your parents and your european ancestry that increases your likelihood of manifesting outside disease later in life about twenty fold if have african ancestry the risk from inheriting that gene from both your parents is about a fourth of what it is if you were of european ancestry so if scientists could figure out what the protective mechanism is they might be able to develop a drug. That would help protect all people who have at least one copy of the four gene and that is by the way tens of millions of people in the us alone now. That sounds really promising. But it's gonna take a lot more research right that also broadens who's being included in that research it will truly diversifying the groups of people in research studies is really challenging and scientists know. They can't do it on their own. So the african ancestry project for example has involved. People like reverend alvin hathaway. He's the pastor of union baptist church in baltimore. He told me one challenge facing scientists. Is that a lot of black. Americans are pretty skeptical about this kind of research. You know clearly when you begin to talk about The brain you begin to talk about the genome data set immediately within the community. That triggers all kinds of suspicions It triggers a lot of suspicions because There has been arguments that The caucasian brain is different from the brain of people of african descent and one of the amazing revelations that i found. Was that when you actually look at brain tissue. You can't discern difference right. Scientists propped up thinking for a long time. And you're saying the legacy of that lives on. Yes it does so john. How'd you researchers with the african ancestry project and other groups navigate that the alzheimer's association did a survey a few months ago. That found that one in five black americans would actually feel insulted. If a doctor even suggested a cognitive assessment to detect alzheimer's so of medicine has a lot of work to do to build trust with black americans and other minority groups. I talked about what that might take with. A scientist named lisa barnes. She's a professor and also a cognitive neuropsychologist at the old timers disease center in chicago. She told me she often. Here's the same comment. When she approaches groups that have been marginalized about doing a research study especially when that may take years to complete these researchers come in and they collect all these data than we never hear from you again so we we also give back so we who make sure that we go back to the community and update them on what we're finding we give their vice about how we're interpreting data. So we try to really make it a partnership between us and the community. And i think that that goes a long way and building trust and and and having them stay with us for the long haul.

All My Relations Podcast
Whole Family Wellness
"Let's start by having you introduce yourselves the way you would to a large group of people So I was born and raised in the area. That is now known as North Dakota. I'm from the Turtle Mountain Band of my Mom's side of the family. So I'm initial Bay and I'm Papa Lakota from the Standing Rock on my Dad's side of the family I lived on the East Coast for a number of years where I went to college at Dartmouth and I went to Grad School at Columbia University for Journalism and I am now the mom to a one year old and the partner to fashion. We live together in Phoenix Arizona where we run our our initiative called while for Culture. So wellness is my passion. I'm also a writer and a journalist but pretty much everything I do. Now is like health and family related Well softball scoop dodged everyone to the both of you and for those. That had a chance to me on. Yep Suga cash on knock to damage over jude are Choon. I'm from the Salt River. People around this area right here and Just happy to be here sup without the ATHOL AENA. Happy to be sitting here to be speaking with both of you. And it's awesome and you guys are one of our favorite podcasts and so we are just honored to be here and wanted to say thank you to the for the awesome work that you're doing with this in just around native country and the individual work you know we worked together. Matija in the past and I worked a little bit with us well at college horizon. So it's awesome to be here in this space to be able to be discussing more of these so very happy with that also work with the native Wellness Institute. I'm a board member there and I've been working with them now for about ten years now and Chelsea said one of the CO founders in our initiative that we call wealth for culture and and as Chelsea had said as well. Wellness is something. That's definitely my passion and the wellness that's rooted within our people and sexual ways. Yeah something that. I'm very passionate about and Just very Excited to try to share what little we know in this area of health and wellness as it pertains to family as you said and we know that that's a big part of of our communities you know it's it's the strong communities are built by our strong families and that's really the root of healing in the root of preserving and maintaining evolving. Our indigene are families and I think that's one of the most beautiful things we can put our energy and effort to especially in Mike this. You know when it's just we have so much going on and on world you know so my heart is full and I'm happy I you know I think the other thing. That's really cool. Is that you know you're a photographer. And you danced for years right with your work with Rohan long on the street. Dance B boy crews and stuff Yeah I didn't think about that what I think about this work. You do too because it's kind of like you know this evolution of becoming these. These people like Chelsea talks about you know going to Dartmouth and Columbia and becoming a journalist and and then you yourself. It's like being a photographer and working in industry and it takes so many different skills to put out content on a regular basis. And you know you to have been developing those skills for a really long time so maybe we could start just having you talk a little about the origins of welfare culture. And and your purpose and what that means to you individually. Well we founded in twenty fourteen shortly after I met. Actually we both were on our own individual healing and wellness journeys And we came together as friends and we did this cool photo. Shoot Auch Photograph me as it was at the time we were calling it like an urban warrior kind of thing but it was just this really cool fitness that we did in your city but meanwhile we were having all these conversations talking about how you know healthy. Lifestyles really are congruent. With our ancestral ways. Both of us were raised in ceremony. But both of us also kind of went the wayside with that a little bit You know during our teens and twenties and you know moving away both both of us moving away from our reservoirs and into cities and kind of just exploring the world and but eventually coming full circle back to that and so it was really cool because I connected as friends through that shared passion for connecting wellness with with our culture. At the time. We realized that there wasn't a lot of imagery of healthy active strong native people and we wanted to change that and so we co founded while for culture and it started as a website and an instagram and facebook page and then it quickly grew into basically this consulting business in Marietta. Other things that we do as well. Yeah we got together because like Jesse had said she was doing journalism. And as you'd mentioned I was doing photography and I after a while. I really wanted to start to kind of help. Help help with the movement that that you're contributing to your work is just to help to portray this our image. You know what I mean that we do have in our communities that often doesn't portrayed in so we started really like she said delve into that and we started really looking at it. And you know I was coming from a perspective of coming. From my community where diabetes obesity cardiovascular heart disease is really super high high in comparison to the non native people that are live on the border. Just a couple miles away you know. The life expectancy is just the gap between is is insane and so I was coming from from that perspective. That how we need to we need to really reclaim our health. And we need to put our health for first and foremost in our diginity to continue on and for me it was it was it was moved my body exercising and training and Alice really trying to draw those connections between that in and being a part of the community and We share a lot. Two of my personal observation is that I watched the the the the the community. I guess involvement and ceremonial things that bring wellness and love and happiness declined because of poor health. People can't show up so I just got really driven on this. This thing like you know we need to. We need to reclaim our health. In whatever way that is for people you know for me was exercising and know trend to really strengthen my relationship to food and so we got together and we start man this is. There's so much more than just you know putting out an image of somebody working out and trying to encourage and motivate people. That's a big part of it. You know but there's certainly a lot more to it so you know. We delved into it to try to create more of a wellness model. That was kind of rooted in in a lot of our cultural values and just kind of going around native country with my work. With Native Wellness Institute the Focus was always on on for sure was pinpointing historic trauma was healing but we didn't see the inclusion a lot of bringing a healthy lifestyle once again. It's as far as physical health. Bring our foods right back into the conversation healing or bringing movement and into the conversation. We're really seeing that so much too and I think that that's sort of like our generations contribution like it's what we're doing this all of us living here now so we really kind of just tried to go forward with that and develop it over the years and later on we became a family and and we realized that everything we were we were coming up with in creating and learning about and putting into practice and sharing about and doing workshops and trainings on was. We're things that we have this opportunity now to live that into model that and to to show that and I think that that's one of the most powerful things we can do is just model that you know model that that that wellness of that. Good life for all of our families to see you know. We're we're strengthening that spirit of wellness step brings families together increase healing once again to you know when when anyone participates in that and so and so you know. That's that's how we got to where we are with it today and as you said now we are really you know as a young family moving forward with that

The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.
What is the Microbiome?
"Let's back up a little bit and talk about this whole thing of the microbiome because we we started with functional medicine. There wasn't the word microbiome but we still focus on normalizing the gut function. We talked about the four our program which is a restoration program for the gut and how that can help so many different diseases. But the microbiome is the sum total of all the organisms that we have in care around inside of us in that also can include Viruses can also include fungi. You know the ecosystem of the microbiome inside the body is like a rainforest and at some point. Some people's ecosystems are so disturbed. So messed up. This like napalm is hit your rainforest that's like a corn mono-crop. Yes so you've got this whole ecosystem bacteria it's been disturbed by all these new talked about C.. Sections anybody anybody accused lack of breastfeeding and so on and our diet also Plays a huge role in the growth of good or bad bacteria and you can feed it certain things and it makes it worse than other things and it makes it better so talk about that. Yeah so so. I always tell patients that when you're eating food you WANNA be choosing your food not just for you what you like. Your you know the things that are pleasurable for you but you also want be feeding the good bacteria and we talked earlier about the Ackerman Ms Sinophilia. That's a specific bacteria that is in the body and that you want to have on high levels and when we do the testing we can actually determine. Do you have high levels of it or do you have low levels or we have no levels are very low levels and there are certain foods which you can incorporate into your diet. Things like pomegranate and Baca and A case the case Uvira cranberries and things like that these are foods which are basically pre pre a prebiotics. And when you incorporate them into your diet you it's like praying miracle-gro grow and a garden they start to flourish. They start to take over and they help balance out the whole ecosystem. Yeah I think is one of the biggest advances in our thinking about God. We get probiotics and that'll fix it but you know you're giving like fifty billion is a lot right but you have it hundred trillion bacteria so it's like a drop in the ocean he's athlete and one of the big insights I had was actually from an experience I had last year where I develop colitis so long story but I had been sick for mold and I've told that story and I had had a recurrence of my gut because I had the C. Diff and that was kind of really messed me up and I check my stool and had really low levels of this ackerman SIA which has been linked linked to autoimmune disease linked to poor response to immunotherapy for cancer. It's billing two Cardi metabolic disease and diabetes. And I'm like WHOA. Oh this is not good so I started to research it and created this cocktail of cranberry Pomegranate Green Tea Keisha fiber products other products. And I took it and it literally. Within three weeks I went from full blown clients to completely normal perfect. Yeah and it was sort of a wakeup call for me. In which was you can't just get products you've got to feed the whole inner garden and what it likes is certain foods and likes all the polyphenols yes in the polyphenyls colorful dark rainbow color chemicals that are in plan foods certain plant whose have more of the berries and so forth. Absolutely your microbiome is depending on what you feed it. How you grow your inner garden depends hands on what you're eating and you can create a nasty garden with weeds and toxins and bad stuff and poisonous plants or you can create a really flourishing rich garden it it actually takes care of you and also the other thing that a lot of even physicians are not even aware of is that most of your immune system is got? Yeah yes so I mean I had one patient in particular particular who I saw. Who came in? It was a great story. She came in And she was Having a MS as their diagnosis she also have community autoimmune disease multiple sclerosis and she also had infertility and I did a a complete workup on her. She had Despite osas had had bacterial overgrowth also had sensitivity to gluten and had also some not a heavy now big level but some level of of Mercury in the body. So so I worked on a diet worked on You know both prebiotics and probiotics to clean up the gut got her completely of gluten and Lo and behold I guess what her multiple sclerosis went away. Amazing disappeared are not not to say that you all her medals out to not to say that all cases of multiple sclerosis this are due to that but there are many pathways to multiples. Close the door. Many pathways to Alzheimer's disease or any disease Aaron disease exactly because the body hit will manifest it in and only certain inflammatory pathways but and then ultimately she got off of her medications her. Ms To this day is in complete remission. She has no symptoms on nomads. And as the side effects you've got pregnant. The personalization of medicine is what functional. Medicine is all about. and that's really what's different here about. How are we practice medicine at the ultra wellness? Because we're looking at each person as an individual or creating personalized medicine and personalized health which is radically new way of thinking and we we just lump everybody with the same symptoms in the same categories. But it doesn't tell you anything about the cause and I always say just because you know the name of your disease. I mean you know what's wrong with you all right. And that's what we do too very detailed histories here through very advanced diagnostic testing. Look some of these things so the microbiomes ecosystem of bugs and our God. It's trillions of bacteria area. It outnumbers ourselves by ten to one outnumbers. DNA my one hundred one and it has been linked to everything from disease to cancer. Heart Disease Diabetes Obesity to autism to Alzheimer's. I mean the list goes on and
THE NEWS with Anthony Davis
Suspending the UK Parliament ruled unlawful.
"Coming up on the news suspending the UK K. Parliament was unlawful judges rule democratic calls for trump impeachment grow and US diets still too heavy on foods the contribute to heart disease. It's Tuesday September September twenty four. I'm Anthony Davis Morris Johnson's decision to suspend parliament was unlawful. The Supreme Court has ruled Mister Johnson suspended or Perot GT parliament for five weeks earlier this month but judges said it was wrong to stop. MP's carrying out duties in the run-up to Brexit on the thirty first of October Supreme Court President Lady Hale said the effect effect on the fundamentals of democracy was extreme the PM said he profoundly disagreed with the ruling but would respect it a raft of MP's. He's have now called for the prime minister to resign and some say they will attempts to four seamounts if he does not go of his own accord during a speech in New York today hey the PM said he refused to be deterred from getting on with an exciting and dynamic domestic agenda and to do that he would need a queen speech the court ruling does not prevent him from Perogie again in order to hold one as long as it does not stop parliament carrying out its duties without reasonable justification lady. Hale emphasized in the ruling that the case was not about when and on what terms the UK left the EU it was about the decision to suspend parliament she said the unanimous decision of the eleven judges meant parliament effectively not been pirogues the decision was now and of no effect speaker of the Commons Kalman's John Berko said MP's needed to return in light of the explicit judgement and he had instructed the House of Commons authorities to prepare for the resumption Russian of business on Wednesday Democratic calls to impeach President Donald Trump gathering pace after demerged he withheld aides to Ukraine pressing it to investigate his would-be White House challenger Joe Biden the House Awesome Representatives Democratic Leader Speaking Nancy Pelosi is meeting with party members today to consider impeachment. Mr Trump has acknowledged freezing the AIDS aides to Ukraine but denied wrongdoing only to US presidents have ever been impeached at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City city today. Mr Trump said he only froze military aides to Ukraine because he wanted European countries to contribute money to the Republican president president also acknowledged pressuring newly elected Ukrainian President Vladimir Leninsky during a phone call on July twenty fifth to investigate.

Can DNA testing show us what food to eat?
"Consumer market and DNA testing kits focused initially on tracing ancestry. But in recent years, there's been growth in areas such as personalized medicine for the future food series supported by Rabbo Bank. Darren Dodd has been testing some of these products, and he spoke to FT science editor club cooks and a neuroscientist Miguel Toribio Mateusz about how useful they are. Subplot you've been Las batching at it testing. And exemplifications of the is it little potted history of where we are. It's more than fifteen years since antecedents worked out, the basic human genome, all our DNA and began to work out. What individual bits of it? The jeans did for our health for our lives are appearance everything it's ten years or so since that information began to enter the consumer arena through several companies, but by far the best known brand is twenty three and me. They've now got many many millions of customers who look at everything to see their ancestry through to propensity to develop all sorts of diseases and the companies do give you medical and health advice. But one of the fos- disc growing areas of application is indeed into dot health and shopping, what should you buy? To maximize your chance of living a healthy. Life says quite young Marquis so Miguel. What's the scientific view these kind of products? How useful are they? They're useful as a provider of pieces in jigsaw. So you might in your health as a complex excel with an image of London. A few pieces of the jigsaw. Are actually missing on what these companies are doing is providing you anything from one piece of that jigsaw to several pieces depending on how much you do to change your health and lifestyle nutritional lifestyle. So some people will find one pays very useful. Some people may need several pieces to actually do something with information. But in general, I think that information can be very useful for people to make positive changes to their health. Darren euro ready again, a pig on some trials of some of the latest dot and health genetic consumer tests. That's right. Well, I'm enrolled onto trials a minute. Then the first one is nichole DNA nudge. Which as the name implies analyze your cinetic makeup and tries to Steve's foods that best compliment that makeup be works by a respond which scans the barcode of the product. And then gives you results red or green or a neutral signal. That's currently being trolled with waitress to see if it can help customers in the fight against diabetes. So I went down to waitressing Westland in this week and spoke to Chris to Mizzou the company's CEO, there's this whole bar FINA. Now, Iran director consumer genetics people buy these kits. They send this alive or off to a lab, they wait several weeks, and they end up with generally uninterrupted information, and that is actually caused a bit of skepticism around these technologies even GP's find this information hard to translate. So what we've tried to do at DNA nudge is demystified the whole process on a small little cartridge. We can take a saliva sample and with. Thin twenty minutes. We can then translate your medical genetics focused around nutrition in particular and determine what food is good or bad view based upon your DNA. And it's not saying that you should eat bananas instead of biscuits 'cause we know those sorts of diets don't work the best diet as we all say is the dire. Edo no, you'll have him. So affectively what we tried to create is a nudge in device saying to people look, this is your natural behavior. These are the sorts of products that you like, and you're going to buy them any way, but we're giving people more choices and a healthier choices within that range. We're not actually looking for genes that the Termine what you can metabolize or not. We're actually looking at medical conditions where looking up propensity to particular conditions related to nutrition, hypertension, type two diabetes obesity for example, caffeine metabolism. These are the sorts of genes that we're really focused on now as I mentioned, you know, jeans, Adum your DNA is dumb. It's high lifestyle expresses those genes. So it's really just a a warn in. And your DNA is therefore guiding you it saying, look, you know, you can have biscuits. But actually, these are the better biscuits view based upon your DNA was sold. Peanuts might be a classic example, where he might now change what peanuts you eat because some of got more salt than others, which could be more important for you. Then shook a sensitivity.
