Anthony Fauci On How COVID-19 Has Humbled Us
"The her school university of chicago particularly dedicated to evidence based policy analytical approaches. It's been a challenging year for evidence based policy. And i want to start by asking you a little bit about what we've learned over the last. What is the evidence to say. First of all the fact that this virus is spectacularly capable in transmitting from human to human number one number two unlike any virus that i've had any experience with about thirty to forty forty five percent of people. Never get any symptoms at all. So whenever had you seen a virus in which almost half the people get no symptoms and yet it can kill a half million americans thus far and a couple of million plus globally but the real show stopper for us that slapped us into a recognition in what we were really dealing with. Is that anywhere. Between fifty to sixty percent of all transmissions occur from someone who will lead the never get any symptoms or is pre-symptomatic which means they are transmitting it. Before they have manifestations of disease and that's just not the way respiratory viruses worked historically so we have knowledge that evolves as the weeks and the months go by and sometimes you need to make policy changes or policy decisions when you have not all the information that you need and one of the things that this outbreak has taught us that scientific investigation and the collection of data and evidence will almost naturally. Have you evolve your own. Stance opinion guideline. Or what have you because when you're dealing with virgin territory you have to make adjustments be flexible enough and humble enough to know that you may need to essentially modify what you said before the very sobering part and the humiliating part. The things that have made us very humble about this is what this virus has taught us. It's been a very painful learning experience.
Despair and disparities: covid-19 consumes Brazil
"Has just gone through. Its deadliest week of the pandemic daily fatalities. Hit a record level of more than nine thousand nine hundred on thursday bringing the total number of deaths to more than two hundred sixty five thousand and cases to more than eleven million. The discovery of contagious new corona virus variant in the amazon region has fueled the brutal second wave but the government's response has been slow and patchy and has failed to contain the spread. The sense that you get living here is sad and almost fatalistic. It feels like this country has given up on dealing with this pandemic in a responsible life saving way. Many months ago ceremonies. Lynn is brazil correspondent. Even though we are all seeing that the cases are higher than they've ever been. The hospitals are full in nearly every part of the country. The restrictions that have been introduced feel completely out of tune with that reality. They've been late. they've been minimal. And some cities are slightly stricter than others. But i think the feeling that most brazilians have is that covert is just going to happen. Overtake this country like a tidal wave. And there's nothing that anyone can do about it and the concern right now. Is that the. The health system is buckling under the weight. Right so the difference between this second wave compared to the first wave is that for the first several months of the pandemic. The virus was sort of ping-pong between different brazilian states whereas now most of the country's twenty six states are seeing their hospitals at or near capacity. And there's really a limited ability to sort of transfer patients or doctors or supplies between the different states recently. The health secretary of the amazonian state of honea mentioned this desperation in a video aimed at those who weren't taking the current virus seriously is typical seymour's known them was laid to swap mine. Nothing lead today but also by a sweatshirt but he says we have no icu. Beds for your mother your father for your aunt. It doesn't matter if you're rich. Poor young old. We simply have no. Icu beds available and those rising in numbers. Those strains that are coming about. Is that down two new variants of the viruses. That the big problem here. That's definitely part of the story. They found this new variant in the amazonian city of manaus late last year. It's called p. One and recent studies show that. It's one point four to two point two times more contagious than other versions of the virus. And the really scary thing is that it looks like it is much more capable of reinfecting people who have already been infected. That might be why people in manaus were hit really badly by second wave. Even though some studies suggest that as many as three quarters of the population had been infected in the first wave the other thing that seems really scary is that it looks like this. Current wave is affecting young people and much higher numbers than before so this variant is clearly causing some of the trouble. But you also say that. There's a certain sense of fatalism. That's contributing here. I mean how much does that have to do with the leadership. We talked a lot before. About how president of brush off the pandemic bolsonaro hasn't changed a bit at a recent event. He told brazilians to stop whining about the krona virus. Sugar jimmy because the club and said how long are you going to keep crying about it. But it's not just him the first wave you saw politicians trying to take a different stance and even going to the supreme court to fight for their right to shut things down even though the president disagreed this time it's different. Brazil has been seeing cases creep up for months now and it's only in the past few weeks. That mayors and governors have really started implementing serious restrictions closing businesses fulltime rather than. Just say from eleven pm to five. Am which is what we had in sao paulo for a few weeks. And what do the brazilian people think about. The the patchy measures have been put into place. I think there's a real split. You definitely see the outrage that brazilians especially the more educated and richard brazilian have had from the beginning. But there's also a real feeling among the middle class and the working class that putting in more restrictions is going to do more harm than good because the economic situation is so bad. Unemployment has barely come down from its high of around fourteen percent and the emergency cash payments. The federal government paid people for nine months last year. Have now been cut off to. Millions of people were basically plunged into poverty when the clock struck midnight on december. Thirty first congress is trying to push past a smaller version of the cash payments. But it's going to take some time but certainly one path out of all of these kinds of trade offs is vaccination. How is the country's program of of inoculation going. It's had a frustratingly slow start. Brazil has administered vaccines to only about three percent of its population that's way behind neighboring countries. Like she lay here in brazil. Most of the problem is that boston otto is anti vaccines and many months ago. When he had from different vaccine companies including some that were doing trials here in brazil he kicked the can down the road and signed with astra zeneca but that one provider hasn't been enough now here in sao paulo. The governor signed a deal with the sign of that company to produce its corona vac vaccine in the federal government. Sort of found itself forced to make a deal as well but they've also been all sorts of supply bottlenecks and problems with distribution and real kind of ineffectiveness by on the part of the national health ministry. Which is overseeing this whole effort. It sounds like a fairly bleak picture all around but it's not just a problem for brazil if these new variants in particular are allowed to run rampant. That's true and it's really scary. The longer the disease is left to fester. In in countries like brazil greater chance that new variants will start to emerge that reduced the effectiveness of covid nineteen vaccines elsewhere in the world posing a threat to nations that have already immunized their populations in a lot of these countries. That are still really struggling with the virus. You see their leaders just begging for the rest of the world to send them vaccine so that they can vaccinate people as quick as possible so far. We haven't seen that from bolsonaro he's been really against vaccines but just in the past few weeks. It looks like maybe he's starting to change his tune. He signed a deal with pfizer and he suggested in a recent interview that he himself might get vaccinated. So i guess the hope is relieved. The bolsonaro will understand that vaccinating people is essential to the economic recovery. That he's been prioritizing from the start and that that combined with attention from the rest of the world in getting vaccines to brazil will start to allow brazil to get a handle on something that feels right now like. It's totally out of control very much for your time sarah. Thank you jason
How to Supercharge Your Brain Health with Food
"Talk about three of these foods. Here that people would be surprised to know that this food is a brain health food. Yeah so first. Of all i mean with the book genius foods. I really wanted to strip away to be s strip way the dogma and really pick the foods that are packed with the kinds of nutrients that we know that your brain needs not only to survive the modern world but to thrive. We want to give the the kinds of nutrients in the kinds of antioxidants. That are really gonna help. Your brain fend off against the insults. Do to toxin exposure mean the modern world where confronted with more toxins than ever before in human history. You know and i kinda use toxins as as a as a to cast a wide net. I mean this could Describe anything from the industrial grain and seed oils that we over consume today the canola oil corn oil soybean all these oils are toxic. But then all the way down to the the refined processed carbohydrates that now make up sixty percent of our of the calories that we intake so these foods that i highlight if you can go to the supermarket and buy them on loop. You're gonna be doing your brain a huge favor so three of them. I would say You know for one definitely dark leafy greens so my favorite spinach kale a ruge. What i try to do every single day is try to eat what i call a large fatty salad and i'm usually focusing on those three greens. rush university research has found that people who do this consume a large bowl of dark leafy greens everyday have brains. That look up to eleven years younger on. Scans so i mean you have more youthful brain eat dark leafy greens I'm usually Seeing those greens in extra virgin olive oil. And i'll tell you. Why allah voile. I consider to be a genius food in its own right Because it's rich in first of all it's got a very favourable fatty acid profile so in terms of the kind of oil that we wanna consume liberally. We can look too many different types of studies to confirm that extra virgin olive. Oil is really beneficial. We can look at the population level and we can see that people who tend to consume more extra. Virgin olive oil have better health. They've got better cardiovascular. Health got better Brain health they even can lose weight. We can look taking a step down To randomized control trials. You know there was the pregnant trial. The premed trial was a very Population long-term about six years is what it spanned Trial where they took Groups of people and they put them on either low fat diets or mediterranean diets for already higher in fat and they supplemented those two mediterranean groups with either morning nuts or more extra virgin olive oil and they found that when consuming up to a liter per week actually improve the health outcomes of these people. The pretty midst study was actually recently reanalysed Because there were some flaws in the random mutation the methodology but even after the reanalysis of the trial they found that the results were the same and so very good evidence. You know people were surprised because as you mentioned up to a leader a week. Yes the lots. Its large quantity. Yeah it's twenty. I mean you know we now know. Thankfully that fat doesn't make you fat even though the two unfortunately have the same word But extra virgin olive oil. You know it's the polyphenyls in the oil aside from the fatty acid Ratio of monounsaturated fat to saturated fat. It's very favourable from that standpoint but it also contains plant compounds that are profoundly anti inflammatory. So inflammation is the cornerstone of all modern disease. Pretty much and extra virgin olive oils is one of these foods that has a very strong anti inflammatory effect in the
The Problem of Gestational Diabetes With Dr. Elizabeth Boham
"We're gonna be talking about conditions pretty common This one hundred percent preventable. A hundred percent reversible that is managed often in very weird ways by traditional medicine and something that's called just station diabetes which is essentially diabetes of pregnancy. So liz tell us how common is this problem. And why should we even care. Be worried about it. Yeah well thanks mark. thanks for having me. It's great to be on with you again and It's really common actually say up to ten percent of women have diabetes which means their blood. Sugar is too high during pregnancy and as a result. What happens when their blood sugar too high during pregnancy is the babies grow too big right so they will get. They will get over weight when they're born so they can grow big. Those offspring often have increased risk of insulin resistance and diabetes and waking when they're adults so when women have just diabetes during their pregnancy. It makes it harder for that baby to maintain healthy weight. When they're an adult so it's trans-generational absolutely not only. Is it dangerous for the baby. During that pregnancy they have a higher rate of of problems with birth. They've increased rate of c-section but their metabolism is damaged. So they have a harder. Time with maintaining normal weight as an adult. They have an increased risk of obesity. They have an increased risk of insulin. Resistance and For that mother to if they had just stations diabetes they have a much higher rates of diabetes post pregnancy. Both type one and type two which is interesting. So they also have a higher rate of cardiovascular disease. they say that a third will develop metabolic syndrome when the within the next five years. So you know it's it is definitely a risk so if if you were told during your pregnancy that you had just diabetes or you you're at risk for just station diabetes. It's important that you are paying attention to your blood sugar to your insulin level to that waist to hip ratio postpartum. Because because you don't want you wanna be be picking this up early. 'cause it's really much easier to reverse if you pick it up early. Imposed ten percent of women who have pregnancies have this problem which is a lot At but when you think about the fact that one and two americans has prediabetes or type two diabetes. You know that's pretty significant. And the question i am is if ten percent have actual just diabetes which means your blood sugar is over a hundred forty after a glucose tolerance test one hundred. Twenty six fasting. How many have prediabetes. Who are pregnant. Yeah because it might be the same ratio as with regular dhabi might be like ten percent and another forty percent of the population might have prediabetes pregnant and that also comes with risks.
Thousands of Microsoft Customers May Have Been Victims of Hack Tied to China

Say that's when the attacks began they were targeting holes in microsoft's exchange servers the service used by millions and millions of customers including huge important businesses. And at first those big groups appear to be the chief targets infectious disease researchers universities defense contractors law firms once microsoft figured it out they patch the bugs but this is where it gets even scarier. We are concerned that there are large number of victims and are working with our partners to understand the scope of this so companies with huge it departments obviously the immediately installed these patches but lots of other groups have been less attentive. They still haven't will in a final flurry. The hackers have quickly begun prodding thousands and thousands of clients on one of the most widely used email server systems in the world. This includes local governments. Police departments credit unions doctors offices school districts. Basically if your company did not update its servers last week. These hackers very well could have had the keys to your email. Everyone running these servers government private sector academia needs to act now to patch them the well-known group krebs on security says. The good news is this has nothing to do with that. Big solar winds. Hack a while back. That was by russians microsoft. This is the chinese. China denies this but the bad news is this is probably even more widespread at one point.

It's a very unusual virus, the likes of something Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, says he's never seen before.

'Weight isn't always within your control': Why some states are prioritizing obesity patients for the COVID-19 vaccine
"State leaders make their own decisions on wind groups or eligible, but many people are not happy about obesity being considered a risk factor that should get early dibs at the vaccine joins us now to talk about this Dr Fatima Cody Stanford, She's an assistant professor of medicine in Massachusetts General Hospital. She's also in obesity, medicine, physician and adults, Adolescence and Children and MGH Wait center. Thanks for joining us tonight, Doctor. Thank you for having me. I guess the first question becomes one of the risk factors for those who are overweight when we're talking about Cove it so it's important for us to recognize that obesity is an actual disease, and I think one of the things that people don't realize is that it's the disease is not just how you look. It's actual, a disease process characterized by a high degree of inflammation. And so when we have that high degree of chronic inflammation associated with obesity, the disease it doesn't play well with the acute inflammation of covert 19. As such patients that have the disease of obesity do have a risk of dying. That's much higher, sometimes 3 to 4 times the likelihood of those that are leaner and wait. So it's important for us to recognize that this is important. We need persons with obesity to be vaccinated. We want them to live. We want them not to need ICU care and be on the ventilator. And that's why I think that this really is a prudent and a really important step for those that have the disease of obesity. Doctor. I want to read a quote from the chairwoman of the Obesity Action Co Elite coalition, who was featured in the USA Today article, she said, Wait isn't always within your control. With that in mind, and what we know about the risk of obesity and Kobe complications is the right move to get obese Americans in this next phase of the vaccine. One thing I'm gonna change I don't want to call people will be so this is a label. Obesity is a disease. And so that language can be highly stigmatizing for my patients that actually have this disease of obesity, but hands down. It's the right move to get patients with obesity vaccinated when we're looking at the vaccines, the fires of modern of particularly we saw that patients with obesity had a similar level of immunity with regards to the vaccines as persons that were leaner and wait status. So if we know that they're dying quicker. We know they're getting sicker and having much more Colton disease processes associated with covert. We need to make sure that they're getting vaccinated. Have you had a chance to talk to any of your patients? What was their response when the news broke that the possibility of them being moved to the next group? They're up to get the vaccine. What was that thought process. What was their feelings about that? There were some that felt you know a little bit guilty that their weight status would cause them a higher likelihood of getting the vaccine sooner than others. But many of my patients were actually very pleased, actually finally be able to get this vaccine so that we can return to some sense of normalcy here in the United States and around the world as we try to navigate these issues with social distancing physical, do, insisting and getting back to work, So I think that it's important to see that there's different camps in terms of what people think. But overall for my patients that have a B C that Aaron care they were very relieved to see that they were moving up in the ranks of the consideration for the vaccine. Alright,
Separating facts from fiction on major COVID-19 vaccine misconceptions
"Of coded. The news does seem to get a little better every day, particularly when it comes to vaccines. We now have three covert vaccines in circulation. Advisor Madonna and Johnson and Johnson. More and more vaccination sites are taking appointments in the U. S. Almost 77 million doses have been administered. Even his inoculations rise. So do the questions. What does that mean for our daily lives after we get both shots? Can we take off our masks and we go on vacation? To get some answers. We talked to Dr Sandra Cash, deputy medical director and infectious disease specialist at West Bed Medical Group, located in Westchester, New York. Is what she had to say. Thanks so much for joining us. You're welcome My pleasure. So with the vaccine on everyone's mind these days, what are some of the common misconceptions about the vaccine? You know, just that this is ah, very good question, and I've seen and heard all sorts of mythology out there about the vaccines. Some of the more common myths that I've seen are that the vaccine can close Cove. It Um, the vaccine. The genetic material in the M R in a vaccines can actually affect your gardener your genetic material on but it can cause problems with fertility. Um You know, and the first two are flat out wrong. Um, you know, the genetic material in the in the vaccines really does not interact with your DNA's A. It's degraded very rapidly in the side of possum. The area outside the nucleus of the cell by yourselves. Enzymes on that happens really, Very quiet. Very quickly. Um, you know, the question about fertility and impact on fertility is one that I think we have not seen evidence of that to be the case. I don't anticipate that being The case. But you know these air new vaccines, So we simply haven't had the time on Ben. The question about whether the vaccines can cause Kobe that that one is flat out wrong. There's no mechanistic way for that to happen with the vaccines that we use these air, not live vaccines. Well, that's great to hear, and it's good to be clear about the facts. After you had two shots of the vaccine, and the correct time period has passed. Do you still need to wear a mask and other other precautions you should be taking you do And the reason it seems a little counterintuitive, But the reason we we continue to make that recommendation is several fold. Probably the most important reason behind that is that we still don't know. And I'm anticipating will have the answer to that in the next few months. Whether vaccination prevents transmission, meaning that a vaccine individual will not get infected if they're exposed to someone with Cove it But they may still get enough of the virus to carry it in their nose in their fair or unfair, inks the back of their throat and be able to spread it toe unvaccinated individuals. And that's where masters becomes a mechanism. Tol interrupt that that transmission I suspect what we'll see with covert vaccine is what we've seen with vaccines for other infectious diseases. Primarily that vaccination not only prevents infection, which we know the M Marny vaccines, the backs and the Johnson Johnson vaccine, they're highly effective in preventing infection. They'll also be very effective in preventing preventing transmission. This asymptomatic carrier status. We just don't have that information now. So we continue to make that recommendation recommendation on mask use until we have that additional information. So given that is it safe to expand your social bubble? Once you have the vaccine, and if so, who can you include? That's a trickier question, and I'll give you like a scenario. So if you're with other vaccinated individuals what you can Probably pretty. Realistically assume, is that those individuals? If they're carrying the virus, they won't infect you. And you won't infect them. What you can't assume And what we're not sure of yet is whether if you're carrying the virus again and your nose, you won't get the infection because you've been vaccinated. Can you expose another person in your gathering and they again Because they've been vaccinated won't get infected. But will they get enough of the virus in their nasal mucosa and then take it to their home where they may have unvaccinated individuals? Now? The likelihood of that happening? You know, there are lots of steps involved. Becomes increasingly remote. And so I've seen, you know, groups of people who have been vaccinating getting together and you know and not wearing masks. I don't think we're at that point yet I would feel much more comfortable with that once we kind of reach more a level of herd immunity. But what vaccination does do is it obviously prevents you from getting infected and dying from this, You know disease, which can be horrible, But it also allows you to do things that you may have been very frightened to do with a lot more comfort, and I think one of the things that we talked about a lot with Cove. It is this underlying kind of second pandemic of tremendous anxiety and fear that it's created in people. You know, fear of going to the store fear of interacting with people fear of even going Outside an exercise in which we know was probably one of the safer things you could do right now. And I think vaccination gives you you know, Ah, lot of relief that if you do go to the store and someone buy, you sneezes or coughs that you know you don't have to have that panic attack, you know, And I think that is a huge weight off of a lot of people's shoulders, and that's why you know Healthcare people in epidemiologist and all the people are talking about. This is really the first major step back to a sense of normalcy and why vaccination is going to be so important for us to get back Tol we were the society. So

"So to summarize leaving. George are really questioning. The constructs of self reported measures and their ability to be measure for participation given this question anna likelihood that at least with some individuals. We are probably not measuring participation when we administer self reported outcome measures. We asked georgia me from our specifics on their studies. We have a study. That's ongoing now. A pilot study will were trying to collect some of these data so that we have a combination of activity data in gps data with self report winds clinic based outcome measures. The start to look at cannery. Had we do somebody think so. How do we quantify information accommodate times. They leave the house. What's the distance. How much time do they spend out of the house forces in the house. What were their behaviors. In terms of mobility behaviors in the is out of the house in china. Look at You know how much time was sitting in the house versus out of the house and things like that so just starting to collect that data and also fortunate to work with some smart mathematicians that have good ways to look at analyze data but then also keeping trying to keep were figuring this out to keep the provide information anonymous way to. We don't know specifically where they went but we know that type of location where they went from. Gps so that's kind of what will work in on now so so. What clinic measurements are you using in conjunction with the fada. We're just kind of casting a wide net at this point right because we want to see what might be useful. What's not so we're doing everything from walking measures gates speed. Six minute walk test. A balanced measures functional gate assessment berg balance scale. So you know. Some lower level functioning higher level functioning motor function so Just fuel meyer. So some impairment based measures in himself. Report mike stroke impact scale The abc to again look at how those three or four different aspects of measurement. Can we combine those got help us. Better understand that bigger picture again going back to talk about the very beginning. I don't think there's going to be anyone measure that's going to be some holy grail is going to be a combination of these things and probably as pt's at least me. I'm a little bit bias towards measuring the mobility and activity aspect of things. But i think it's important to step back and try to look at more than just that and hopefully we can do that with all these different measures while. I think that's another big point is like how much can clinicians really taken and integrate and what kind of interfaith the you then need with a clinician. Like you know to georgia's point like part of it as an anon- beano being anonymous about where you are but part of also like. I can't even handle that information for all my patients. I just wanna know like you know they were. They were out in the community for x. Number of minutes the last week and or you know sitting at home for the majority of the time or whatever it is like it has to be fairly growth. I would think permission to be really useful and integrated in clinical manner. So we've along. I think there's a long way to go before we get there but Yeah like what's important out of all that information is pulling. I think that's even true when we look at the stepping data right so is really the number of steps today is that what's most important or is it about so you take or You're walking when you're taking steps right. So i think even those. We're not sure what is the most important information or maybe berries person to person. I don't if you guys have garmon so with this garmin does is. It gives you a daily goal of depth count. It decides your daily goal based on what you've been doing actually think that there's something good about this the fact that it's moving my target because what i learned is that holy cow in the last you know five days or whatever i haven't been doing and that like now i need to go for a long run where i need to walk to and from work. You know whatever it is to get my step stack up. Though it's interesting and sort of there's a psychological piece to it. I was just gonna say that. Could lead to your next podcast that we need to partner with psychologists really to better understand behavior change totally. I mean that's the big thing right in so highly. We actually support people to change their behaviors and not be sectarian. So i think you know. Look at some literature. Was smoking cessation weight loss in. How can we apply some of those principles to improve activity in additionally george suggested we talked to dr lori. King professor researcher at oregon health science university in co director of the balance disorders lab hanging lorries. So even talking to lead dibble. George full um in order to try to answer. The question of bts can measure participation in the clinic and they had some very unique ideas but they also said that you were doing a lot of work in this area. So we'd love to hear from you. About what are the types of things that you're looking into or tools that you're using you. We are yes. Our lab has been interested in as an activity at home for a number of years. And it's kind of interesting because we started doing this like a decade ago on some level but the recent covert restrictions have really ramped up what we're trying to do with monitoring because our lives have been closed so it's kind.

"Therapist. Tune improve quality participation. Click badgers snap shot in the person's behavior. What we really would like is a is a movie. Welcome to four dean deep dive into degenerative diseases gaining insights through casual and amusing clinical conversations. Katie mcgrath former chair of the bbc and member of the four podcast podcasting. We're doing something a little different with this podcast. The team wanted to be true to our name into a deep dive on one topic but talk to a few different experts. In order to do this we reached out to dr george. Full professor at suny upstate. Medical university and editor in chief of the journal of neurologic physical therapy george suggested we look at the topic of participation in how we can really evaluate quantify in impact participation with our patients. We were psyched. And so here. Coz i'm here farm paget secretary the d. said in our podcast hosts to start our discussion of participation great katie. I think this is a great topic. you know. We know that participation is important. It's hard of the ice off. And so i was excited to hear that george brought to our attention and you know. I think it's something that we should think about and care about but the reality is in a busy clinical environment where you're collecting certain outcome measures and really addressing people's problems impairments. It's kind of easy to lose sight of participation. At least for me. I totally agree. I think it's really hard to know how to measure participation and to remember to measure participation in particularly when and if it's not part of your regular valuation or workflow as you're trying to address other issues and reasons that the patients are coming in for therapy so katie what are you doing to measure participation. Now it's a good question. I don't think i'm doing very well if i do. Measure it salardu. More of a quality of life measure specific within parkinson's i use the pd q. Thirty nine lot. It does kind of draw out functional participation level limitations that may not come out with something standardized that we're using like a six minute lock test or the time go right. They may not necessarily make the link. That oh i do feel slower out in the community or i have a hard time keeping up a so. I think trying to define what we're talking about when we're talking about. Participation is a great idea to tackle the definition of participation we have storage full for his expertise and understanding. I don't know there actually isn't like holy grail of participation rates. I think that it's going to be multiple avenues. That are helping us. Get a picture of the participation. There's going to be is not gonna be anyone measured but it's gonna be a combination of multiple measures that would give us some idea. What the participation is great so is can be self report along with activity monitors including gps including Clinic based measures rates. I think it's going to be some combination of all those things using. Gps to measure participation was a new idea for us and so we were curious about how george started going down. The path of using gps track participation in patients initially got some of these ideas actually from reading papers about endangered species. So they actually have you know you know. For example you can go online and watch where some sharks are swimming in the ocean rain so they actually have these. Gps in activity monitors paired together on for I started radiant with snow. Leopards actually And looking at their habitat in so then they can infer as a eating location feeding hunting versus a travel location based.

"That we can share with our listeners. Last year was kind of just at the. I think it was almost the last day of. Csm when we're kind of tired and at the finish line and we were just talking to the speakers up front kind of talking about a game plan and getting ready to introduce them and as we're standing at the podium not speaking into the podium all the sudden we hear this voice coming over the sound system over our heads of very official person. Doing a very nice introduction really didn't know where the voice was coming from as it turns out Next door the other section had gotten a few minutes headstart on us and we are getting their audio and our audio is getting patched into there's So we thought maybe we should just have the audiences switch rooms and listened to the speaker in the opposite room. Maybe that would have prepared us for this. Virtual environment where But after a few minutes than audiovisual guys were able to fix it up but that was pretty comical at the end of the a weekend that's degree story and i'm not sure if that was the same room that will hours in but that was kind of the worst story. Irish digging of to where the rooms had gotten crossed there so that's funny And another thing. That had happened to me ways. When i felt like i was managing to really well. We had a lot of people in the room at the time. It was the front of the room the person who is introducing the speakers and I had one of our whole group of just complete rockstars from the field of physical therapy there and I was interacting with them. They go to introduce them and introduced the lead speaker. And i say and here is adele field slit who we all know in love and it turns out. Her name is not pronounced that way at all. I was really embarrassed after that. I sat down my face. Must've been rod Because that's not how you savor name and say that. I really put my foot my mouth. I guess you could say. I think it's your photon your mouth. Yes i was scared to even say it now. I thought it was going to stay at wrong again. I have a war story to tell about you. The the first time i met you in person But we can say that for later date. But i think csm. I'm obviously biased. But i think it's absolutely the best conference That you can possibly attend as a therapist and maybe across in other healthcare professions And the gift that our committee has given is amazing programming from amazingly smart intelligent articulate researchers clinicians and educators and so our job is simply pick from this bevy of great programming and help put it together So he couldn't do it. Without all these presenters all the individual six years included So we're excited for csm every year. This year's obviously the look a little bit different But i think at the core of it. We're going to have some phenomenal educational programming. And yeah we won't be able to sit in the chairs next to each other or actually search for a chair with each other and try to separate But we'll all be intended this year. And i think one benefit this year's the cost of attending. Csm is quite a bit lower. The tuition is almost half the price. I believe there's no air travel. there's no lodging. there's no sixteen dollar drinks and the coffee line in the morning is just gonna be me. And my wife said there's some benefits to the virtual formatting so make sure you do sign up even in this awkward year to attend encourage your co workers that have never come before i know. I have a ton of co workers. That never come because they can't get the time off. That's not an excuse this year so we're hoping for a really good numbers because again we're gonna offer that very very good high quality education experience and so how do we have to sign up yet. Is there a deadline or is it right up to the middle of march. That's a great question. there's no reliever deadline so there's no incentive to register early but it does help us with the planning on expecting how many people are going to call them up. Joined kind of like what. Heather mentioned with the bandwidth on the virtual rooms So you can register at any moment. And i believe he can register up until the very last day of march. So if you've talked it up really good. Some of your colleagues might be attending the last day to kind of plug in and get twenty. See us at the last last minute. So yet you can register at any moment Up until the conferences over at the march some great so at the end of every year every attendee is probably tired. I don't think anyone is as tired as the two of you and yet the amount of support that you give physical therapist whole profession and each one on the programming committee is a may is. And i'll tell you when i get home and i know bart's tired and then in the mail comes a handwritten. Thank you note from. Bart is just an amazing feeling. And and i'm just so excited to be part of it heather and barr. Thank you both so much for joining us today. Gave us a wealth of information and this is really helpful for anybody planning on going to see them this year. So thank you so much. We hope that you'll be back again next year to do this with us. Thank you so much for having ashley really appreciate it. Records great to talk to you and all of your sick friends and looking forward to seeing you at virtual. Csm this year were saying you to.

"Be aware out. no well. i think personally since. I'm so integrated with the neuro programming when i'm on the ground at csm it's twenty seven sessions three days three times a week. You know it's busy. And i only get to see. Even maybe fifty percent of the neuro programming. I think one of the biggest benefits of virtual sim is. I'm gonna be able to ten a lot of different. I first of all. I'm going to be able to attend all of the programming from neuro which i'm ecstatic for. But i'm also i work in acute care I work with geriatrics. i work. I send patients home healthcare. I dabble with research so i'm really excited to be able to look at all the different programming from the different sections and academies and. I'm going to be able to take all that in over the course of a two month. Time period So i think that's exceedingly exciting. I think since it's a new platform this year. There's a few things that we all of us will get smarter over the course of the two months but i think one of the most important things is Make sure you listen to the lecture before you go to a and a. So if you don't listen to the lecture then the qna's not going to be very valuable to you so make sure you listen to that ahead of time and i'll also highly encourage you to attend the q. And a. because these these lectures are great. But i think that dialogue with the presenters. It's so valuable even if you don't ask a question you just learn so much more by kind of understanding and how chew on the content and the information so Just make sure attend the classes ahead of the and make some time to carve out so you can actually attend the. But i think that's the most important factors awesome. Thanks for that advice. I think that makes a lot of sense because sometimes you don't even realize what you don't know what you didn't quite understand until somebody else asks the question and you realize that's a really great question. So thanks part. Sorry sir now that. We have kind of the way of the land of starting to feel like i i understand what. Csm is gonna look like a little bit this year. Let's get one step further and sees the as from the perspective of a single attendee. And so for the sake of this podcast. Let's pretend we see primarily patients which diseases so heather. Would you be able to kind of walk us through where someone like me. Should even start so if you go to. Ta dot org slash fm. You can find the entire schedule that is available and you can search by section so you would choose neurology and you could see our entire schedule that we are offering. But if i was really interested in german disease i would be looking specifically at thursday. The twenty third february where we have a lineup of several live. Qa in a row that might specifically starting at seven pm. There is expanding dual task training and parkinson's disease the intersection of treatment and technology. There is hitting the mark exercise prescription and high intensity training for persons with m s. Then at seven thirty there is promoting high quality evidence based practice in rare neurodegenerative disease huntington's disease as a model and eight thirty that evening. There is global neurological physical therapy. Be a part of the community awesome so this is really four great topics that would be very applicable for anybody in her special interest group. That was february. Twenty third right correct from seven to ten eastern time. So if i was really interested in that would be the night had focused on but that is not all of the offerings that were having under jenner disease. This year are great. Awesome and are there certain networking events that are really specific descrip- so yeah indeed there are so if you're interested in you wanted to participate in the degenerative disease meeting you would be looking at february fourth at eight pm eastern time and you would want to tune in that on zoom all right and i don't know if you know off hand these things that you can just show up to all of the courses really. Do i have to register ahead of time. Do i just log in. How does that work is a good question so when you register for cfm you can pre select courses. That is not a binding commitment. You can change your mind at any time But actually is pretty relevant because it helps ata decide how much bandwith they need. Because even though it's virtual there is theoretically unlimited capacity for a number of attendees at any one time so in your preselect data at helps them gauge. How much bandwidth. They're going to need so that everyone who would like to attend can attend the live q. And a. and. I do believe that you have the option to rsvp to be safe meeting as well okay. Great and that's really good information. It really behooves us to actually be as honest as we can about what we're going to attend ahead time or air on this is gonna carson. It would be helpful but certainly people can change their minds at anytime. Ra great Is there anything else that you feel like individuals in in this perspective this category should really prepare for heading into csm. Or that about covers. I think that about covers it. I would echo bart thank. You would get more out of the live q. And if you have already watch the recorded lectures but as well. We also have a platform in Dedicated to dvd issues as well. We have fifty three jenner disease posters. That you might want to watch awesome. That's great and now. I have a question too so there's probably a couple hundred different education sessions i could wash. Does that mean that c- cruiser just unlimited almost for this two month event. Or how does that work. It does not So there is a cap to c. E. is i believe. It is two point zero ceos and in order to achieve those see us. You will need to take a ten question posts ouster each course that you have attended and you need to pass this test but you have unlimited opportunities to pass this test. In order to claim your seat us all right awesome and obviously. We're not just going to see us. Sanford as the years. There's so much so many more benefits of csm that but it's good to know how that process works now that we've kind of concluded the business part of the call. I have to ask heather. What do you do in your spare time. Well i have upheld hon bike and i am completely obsessed with my peleton bike so i spend a lot of time doing that Now that there's a pandemic a lot of walking outside and the pond in my neighborhood alright. So we heard from heather and what you to do in your spare time but bark. Can you tell us a little bit about what you like to doing your free time. I was born and raised in montana where the snow was on the side of mountains So i grew up skiing. But i moved to minnesota. Twenty years ago and boycotted the concept of ice skating With the pandemic our family has had a lot more downtime and we bought our kids ice skates about a month ago. And i watched them on snow-boots so this morning i actually went and bought ice skates to join my kids so there was a lot more motor learning a lot lot of balance and falls but And and it's really a joy to be coached by your six eight and eleven year old on how to do a skill that they're better at So that's what we're doing this winter. That's great a very humbling experience right. Yes lastly i know that everyone in the program committee has some more stories to tell some maybe not appropriate for broadcasting but far. Do you have any program stories.

"Work in our hospitals hundred these clinic and in our pediatric nurse. Muscular clinic As well as with our residency program. We're excited have you both here. So i just rolled off my three year position as part of a mvp program committee and every year. Heather barton. i've talked about making some kind of primer for. Csm to help those newcomers. Get a grasp on the setup of sia sam where to even start but we just never found the time but barton heather if attendance rates stay consistent you guys are going to have maybe eighteen thousand newcomers grappling to understand the very first. Csm that's a virtual layout and probably the two of you are still trying to grasp the new layout so our hope is that podcast could just shed some light on how to approach. Csm twenty twenty one so bartlett's just start with the education sessions. I know that. Csm education sessions have typically been three two hour sessions for three days to maximize the number of sessions. That participants are able to attend. But what does it look like this year. Thank you and it's been in a volume process of understanding how virtual platform would look and we're still constantly learning about it but Every day this year we've gotten a little smarter so csm will be Available from february first till the end of march and the entire month of february there will be live content And then in the month of march all that content will still be available for on demand To watch at a later date as well as to take a post test to completely complete your c. E. us all of our neuro content will be available on demand. Starting on february. I saw l. to watch any lecture at anytime. All the lectures are intended to be between sixty and ninety minutes in length and And then on top of that. Some of the courses will feature in a live format. Some of them will actually play in the evening hours between seven to ten at night on tuesday nights. We're gonna feature five keynote addresses. One of them is kind of a follow up from last year's George hornby talk on having difficulty. Removing the kid gloves. We're also going to have one on. Did major research in the last decade change. Practice locomotor training gadgets intensity everything works. And then we're gonna have the an someway cook lectureship we're gonna have a special Topic on the neuro practice and covid nineteen across the continue continuum and then we're also gonna highlight a global neurophysical. Therapy be part of the community. So those five classes will be shown in a live viewing. But they're not actually going to be live but we're going to show them so the group can watch them simultaneously but then We probably have about a dozen courses that will have a live. qna with the audience. That was gonna be. My question is what's the benefit of going to live. Course if they're all recorded anyways yeah and so part of that is just to have everybody to watch at the same time. And maybe that means you text back and forth with your colleagues across the nation. Just like you'd be sitting in the classroom onsite but following that live presentation will be alive q. And a. with the speakers and so we'll be able to talk and dialogue with the speakers after those five sessions but also i think there's about a dozen that were featuring with the live q. And a. so. Those will all be occurring on tuesday evenings between seven and ten eastern during the month of february If you're not available for those lifetimes to dial in qna those live cuny's also will be recorded and be available to watch on demand later and there's also going to be an a synchronous chat associated with every single course so You know just like a comment dialogue on a in a chat room. You can pose a question. You can answer questions. You can further the dialogue long so that'll be associated with each individual course right awesome and another great part about. Csm is just being able to interact directly with researchers during poster presentations platform presentations. But how is that going to work. Virtually yeah and so. I think we've been forced to transition to some new techniques this year just because of covid but because of that we've kind of stumbled on along a lot of really neat Techniques to deliver content in a different way so we will be featuring platform Presentations again like a typical year But they're all going to be delivered. Virtually I believe instead of having our typical three or four platforms. I think we're going to have six. And the reason for that is that we have their shorter because we feel that People screen time is hard to keep their attention so most of the content that we're going be delivering is going to be focused at a sixty minute time window. So if you're at work and you're eating lunch You know pop on demand session from csm. You can watch it in that our timeframe so we'll have six platforms and then we do have a posters as well They're going to be available. Digitally and i think over ninety percent of all posters for all of ap a also have a a audio file associated from the presenters as well. So there's some dialogue to listen to you as well as presenting the poster. I said is there any kind of interaction with the researchers or is it just something we're able to watch this year I can't speak specifically on the poster presentations but the platforms will have that asynchronous. Qna so you'll be able to dialogue with them as well. Great and the other thing that i really wanted to make sure you have to ask about is just the networking that happens at. Csm so important. And it's actually how. I ended up by the csm program committee so are we just don't missing out on that this year. Has that way. Well everything in this past year look different. The mylan melter. We didn't feel like we can really pull off so that won't you planned on. We won't execute that this year The business meeting and award ceremony will be held. It's going to be held outside of the timeframe of typical. Csm so it's gonna be january twenty sixth Right before the week of csm starting and then every thursday night during the month of february we're gonna have Events or meetings. A lot of those nights will be cygnets were. Each sick is devoted about a forty five minute to an hour time period. How they can fill whichever way they like so the will have an evening And those are all going to be on zoom. So they're very flexible and how they perform and then we'll also have a mentor mixer. That has usually been a highly attended event at csm so there will be opportunities to dialogue with professionals in your fans and meet them virtually at csm. Thursday nights between seven to ten pm awesome and last year. He cement mentor mixture. I thought that was a great event. And i'm trying to remember some of the the mentor. Things that go on there. I don't know if if you have details on all of that or not. I think if you attended that event you could expect to get a little bit of information about the opportunities within a npt Particularly if you are looking to engage in volunteering either as a student or as someone who is early in your career unfamiliar with the opportunities across all of our committees and our six you may also season representation from the various things including the residency and fellowship sick As well as probably an informal opportunities to engage with other people in our profession. That sounds like a great opportunity and so is there anything else. Big picture that i'm missing. Are there any other big events that we need to.

"Out tng and started having this conversation. 'cause andreas really a clinical expert. In parkinson's disease was aware of the parkinson's disease edge documents and was really always kind of searching to kind of improve practice. So angie like thinking back to kind of those original conversations. What we're kind of some of your thoughts as i approached you about this project yet. Thanks amy i was excited about the project being a therapist for over twenty years and really knowing a lot about parkinson's i had been doing a lot of the outcome measures myself but knew that a lot of my coworkers were not doing commercials. I was doing so. I was excited because it was a good way to really. I think approached them and get their input. We're kind of approach it as a team. How can we do more. Parkinson's specific outcome measures In provide more research based gill to to people with parkinson's. I was super excited about it. Angie give us a little bit of background on your clinic like how many clinicians do have there. What kind of populations do you see. It's a relatively small clinic. It's outpatient neuro clinic so there are currently. Actually we have three physical therapists at this point. I'm part time physical therapists in two full-time. Pt's we have two fulltime. Ot's three speech therapist and to physical therapy assistants. So that's pretty much our team right now in the front office staff. Jim itself is actually small which came into play when we were deciding which outcome measures. We're going to choose so as far as the physical barriers That was something we had to talk about amongst the team as ours. What outcome measures were going gonna work for us so that was helpful. When emmy came in 'cause we could all together for us as a team. What are the outcome measures that we feel we can implement and continue to. Do you know a forever and were there. Other clinics involved in this effort yes. We're the main neuro clinic. But there are several other outpatient clinics associated with essential genesis. And so i guess how many there was about there were four clinics that were involved in the project in particular because so the grand blinked. Clinic is probably i would say. India said the central clinic that sees primarily neuro patients but there's other clinics and other remote parts in the flint area. Down a patient with parkinson's might not wanna travel a half hour so these clinics were closer to their home in these clinics were commonly smaller clinics. Two of the clinics only had one physical therapists. That was at that clinic but that would still see somebody with parkinson's disease. The project included four clinics that included seven physical therapist to occupational therapists..

"All you have to do is look in a mirror and watch the changes over time fountain. Therapeutics is training. It's artificial intelligence platform to look at individual cells to detect changes that occur as cells get older and discover therapeutics that target underlying mechanisms of agent. The company believes this will provide new ways to targeted therapies to treat a range of diseases associated with ageing. We spoke to John Demos Co Fountain about the company's Ai Platform. It's approach to understanding aging cellular level, and how it provides new ways discovering developing therapeutics for diseases of aging. John Thanks for joining us. Thanks to any. Thank you for having me. We're GonNa Talk About Aging Fountain Therapeutics and its efforts to us. It's a platform to address the consequences of aging. You're looking at aging at a cellular level. What is aging in that context? That's a great question Danny <hes>. We all understand what happens to us. I guess intuitively as we get older. I the superficial things we develop wrinkles, and then the more significant things we start getting a little bit trail, a little bit slower prophecy start gaining weight. We get older. We also become prone to developing more and more diseases. Any of the so-called Age Associated Diseases, which is about eighty, maybe ninety percent of all diseases that humans are afflicted with our diseases that are associated with getting older. What happens is that ourselves start slowly breaking down. They start slowly developing dysfunctions, and this is likely the very root cause of all of these ageing processes and consequences and fountain. We're looking very specifically defined drugs to prevent or even reverse that kind of age associated damage. How does sailor aging different than say chronological aging? The two things are of course linked, but they're separate on illogical agent is determined very much by the date on which you were born, we can look at the calendar and know exactly how old we are. Biologic aging is a little bit different. It integrates not only that time, but also our health, our activity, our environment, our jeans, and it's something that it is very much at least in part, but still very much under control. We can influence our biological age based on our diet based on our exercise based on other lifestyle factors as well as by the drugs that we take or or perhaps don't take. And is what you're doing in any way. Change our conception of aging our conception of disease. I certainly hope so. We have long thought that aging is something that's that's immutable. Where we're born. We aged certain rate. We succumb to old age if we're lucky. It's not in any way linear, and it's not something that preordained has to happen following that sort of calendar clock. We do have control over how we age, and as as fountain and many other companies working in the space, continued to discover and develop new products targeting age. I think we'll have even more control over those processes and will stop thinking about aging. This the unchangeable march towards the inevitable. We tend to think about diseases as Driven by proteins either proteins better. Expressed to quantity or or not enough. Is. Looking at the cell itself, the aging cell does that suggests something different about the way we can approach disease or or. How. We think about what diseases. Yes standing absolutely at least I think so so there are a lot of hypotheses out there about what drives aging so for example. Maybe it's your telomeres getting shorter. There's a lot of activity in that space. Maybe it's the buildup of Senescence or so called. Zombie sells again a lot of work in that area. Maybe it's the mitral country are the energy powerhouse of the cell starting to to not work as well again, also a lot of work in that area I can go on and on and on their all these different molecular protein. Processes that are linked to ageing at Fountain, taking a slightly different approach and were saying that we don't know what the right hypothesis. We don't know what the right way is to target agent, so instead were more integrating it a little bit at instead of looking at the molecular the protein level. We're looking at the wholesale level, and simply watching how the cells behave how the cells age and looking for ways to intervene in those processes. Should aging itself be thought of as a disease. That's a little bit more right now of a philosophical question than it is a scientific one. We have the freedom to philosophize. We certainly do, and there is no shortage of that you know around the fountain. Water Cooler so to speak and unsure at many many other places, and I think as we start to understand aging better over time, and perhaps have therapeutics that target aging will be a little bit more <hes> comfortable thinking of aging as a disease that can be treated rather than than inevitable.

"Be proud. Never asked me the date and time of anything so Siri. You do get to choose. Who Goes I I'M GONNA. Go first because I'm really excited about. What a treat during world. War Two to Polish doctors figured out a way to save people in Roswell Holand from being deported to German Labor prisoner of war or concentration camps by making a bunch of patients test positive for typhus, which is a highly contagious infectious disease, typhus, which is also typhus fever has symptoms like purple rash, headaches, fever, and historically has led to pretty high death rates so Nazi authorities in Poland made. Made Doctors report any suspected cases and send blood samples to German controlled labs, so they could conduct tests and find infected people before carting them away to labor camps, if not executing them doing evil, Nazi things and the test they used is called a well Felix task, which is a kind of a gluten nation test invented in Nineteen, sixteen, so the well. Felix test called an agglutinate test because it's positive, if the. The sample gets all clumpy in test tube or on a slide, because antibodies, which your body makes and defense are reacting with antigens, which is anything that causes an immune response, so if you're sick with typhus, for example, your blood has typhus related antibodies floating around and in the labs they would add some of an antigen called protease, O x Nineteen, which is known to look like a typist like Antigen and is close. Close enough to activate those antibodies, so the toughest related antibodies would react the proteas. Oh, X nineteen sample would get clumpy and they'd be like. Please keep your typhus infected person out of our labor camps, and then ignore them the so, is it a call well? Felix test because one of the doctors is named Felix in the end of the test. The other doctor goes well. Felix looks like this guy's got typhus. No. One. Scientists so how do they use that to that to save people from the Labor camps? WHO'D DOCTORS? Dr Eugene Lazinski and Dr Stanislaw Metulla wicks I'm glad they didn't develop the tests. Advocates than avail Lozanovski. Matuszewicz tests much more complicated. They discovered that injecting a patient with a suspension of the protease, O x nineteen sort of like a vaccine with 'cause patient's immune systems to make antibodies and therefore clump up the well Felix test, which resulted in A. Positive so they injected lots of people with any vague titus like symptoms under the guise of protein stimulation therapy. This generalized sure just just a fake thing and the Nazis had no reason to believe. The tests were being tricked, because there are all sent being sent off to German labs, so they eventually declared epidemic area, an estimated eight thousand people were saved over three years from being imprisoned or killed. It was like a vaccine against labor camps. The yeah, because they knew that the Nazis were afraid of getting sick and yeah, just like tricked a bunch of people and protected these small. Small villages, which isn't a lot in the grand scheme of things, but was like a clever at the time it did. They ever get found out like I mean just doing this I. I assume put them in substantial danger. Did this all sort of come out after the fact? Yeah, so in April nineteen eighty issue of US Navy medicine. They published about it like they wrote about was like back in the day. This is how he trick the Nazis and it seems like. The end of those three years, they were receiving threats like some Nazis were suspicious of like the epidemic area and the tests, and so I think either one or both of the doctors fled because they didn't want to be found out, but yeah it. They just like wrote a detailed article about it that I can read in US Navy Medicine Volume, seventy one number four. I love this fact Jerry, Steffen. What do you got for us? so today we're talking about diseases and Anna as I mentioned earlier I have some diseases and one of the diseases, but I have is Glaucoma, and my today is about Glaucoma so I guess it's actually a group of diseases and the common factors that they cause vision loss over a long period of time by damaging different parts of the and usually people with Glaucoma have a higher than normal pressure of the fluid in the eyeball, but there are people who ended up being vision loss while still having normal pressures. But in general, we don't know a lot about what causes it. And so these researchers at MIT in Massachusetts, eye and ear were studying glaucoma in mice, and found that the mice zone t cells, so that's part of their immune systems were actually the thing that was responsible for the damage to the retina and causing visit vision loss, and that's very strange because. Because up until now I think the general idea is that it's the high itself. That's directly causing damage by squeezing the different parts of your I. I guess I don't like that, but it gets kind of weird or because they think that these t cells are causing that damage because they had previously encountered bacteria that you find in like your body normally. Sort of like the bacteria would be making your t cells kind of angry, and then your t cells, which aren't normally able to get into the retina. are able to get in because of the high pressure. Although they don't know how that works, exactly then the angry cells can start punching your your eyeball parts on and causing damage. And so they tried to do a few different things tried inducing glaucoma in mice with not cells. And found that the high pressure on its own was causing some damage, but once pressures returned to normal. The disease didn't progress any further, and they tested it in germ, free mice, so mice that don't have any bacteria, and they were not able to induce glaucoma those mice. And, so then they looked at humans with Glaucoma and found that they had five times the normal level of that kind of t cell. So, this together suggests that Glaucoma might actually be an autoimmune disease, which is very very weird and was the headline that made me go, and so this like opens the door. Maybe there's some new treatments where we could treat coma by blocking the immune response. Does the pressure in the eye a separate thing that just happens to help you get Glaucoma I think. The most common form of Glaucoma happens partially because like your eye has liked drainage ducts in it and so it's like draining little bits of fluids that maintains the pressure, but in in like my version of Glaucoma. They're still draining, but there may be not draining enough and so the pressure builds up. So this inside the eyeballs draining out of your eye all the time. Like the outside you can't have old stinky water in your eye forever. It was just a swamp in their. ogres living in it. Slows what you can. You can see him. If you look up at the sky, sometimes all right well I am very in favor of finding new ways to treat glaucoma especially because Monterey friends has glaucoma. Family at that personal touch, didn't it all right Sammy Herati? Three to one seri. Wow, yeah,.

Don't know how to say that word insurance so non space-bound Salmonella spends most of its life slot, sloshing around in different fluids like they just a fluid, but it has the ability to tell when it's in a flowing liquid, or when it's not, and it's like nestled into the lining of your intestines, and that's when it. It blooms and starts to spread, so it just happens to detect zero gravity as the same as being nestled into apart of your intestines where it can spread, so that's like always blooming when it's floating around in space, and that's the same with a bunch of different diseases, so people are kind of worried that diseases will be worse than easier to catch in space, and then the last one, the deep muscle thing, deep pictorial myopathy that is a disease that commercial poultry gets when they are in their cages and they can't fly.

Was it number one. In astronaut on the ISS had to be evacuated back to Earth in one, thousand, nine, hundred, six, after eating some Manella contaminated package of beef tips in gravy number. One of the astronauts on Apollo Thirteen suffered from a urinary tract infection, due to a combination of dehydration and holding in his P too long as they were on their perilous journey back to earth and number three. National on Apollo fifteen upon returning to earth, complained of chest soreness, and was found to be suffering from deep pectoral myopathy or green muscle disease, which is where lack of exercise in the pictorial muscle causes him to turn green and swollen. Wow, okay, so you have three potential serious diseases of astronauts in space number, one at astronaut had to be evacuated back to Earth after eating Salmonella contaminated package of beef tips and gravy to an astronaut on Apollo thirteen had a urinary tract infection because of dehydration and holding the P or three Apollo fifteen astronaut got deep pectoral, myopathy or green muscle disease, which sounds like absolutely the worst.

"Disease? Well! Alert. That's all the etymology. We took this and ease like. I'm not in ease right now and then I. In the sixteenth century, people were like let's let's call that sick also. It is a very vague definition. It is any sort of mission in a living animal or plant, more one of the parts of that living in war plant organism that impairs. Functions and usually has some sort of signs or symptoms or other characteristics that we would consider bad, but are just annoying in some way like extra mucus. What what if I? If I dislike Stub, my toe is that a disease not signing an injury? What about a hangnail about the disease either so disease to be? Gorey's you can be deficiency diseases. Diseases infectious diseases which are the ones caused by microorganisms like viruses, bacteria and physiological diseases like gas that would be stops hangnail territory I think a hangnail is a physiological disease. I feel like diseases to me. Link to more systemic function like those are one off events like like a mosquito bite as like one off, malaria is a disease or something that is transmitted by that. We're like food. Poisoning is is a one off events that we haven't names. Kito, by the like A. Small infection caused by the saliva of the mosquito. I learned an animal crossing it is. Is a allergic reaction to the saliva of the mosquito. Allergies disease definitely because I because all sorts of Colitis is basically an allergy to my own body, and that's definitely a disease. I was also looking upwards like disorder and syndrome and condition, and how those relate to disease. It all seems very whibley to me. I'm sure there's knocked out there who has very clear lines in their own head, but there's like Ben Diagram. Of these terms I have a suggestion, and this is really neither here, nor there because I don't think that we're going to get to a definitive definition of disease, but I'd like to remove the part of the word and have just be called.
