"That fda advisory panel saying. Hey let's slow your roll when it comes to these boosters. Although there was a caveat. And i'm talking about those covert at nineteen booster shots for everyone. I know it's confusing because we keep getting mixed messages on just about everything related to cove nineteen. But you have that. Fda advisory panel saying voting unanimously. I believe it was eighteen. Zip to recommend boosters for everyone why why are you can boil it down to five reasons. They think it's too soon. They don't see enough evidence to justify booster shots for everyone. They would like a whole lot more data and a chance to look for mistaken conclusions. They're worried about younger adults and teens. And they think it's more important to put the emphasis on getting people vaccinated in the first place but with all this confusion. Does it only create even more doubt. Is there any danger to taking a booster shot. Well dr jason west is an integrative medicine. Physician fourth generation owner of the west clinic in idaho and on might be high time to tap into his expertise dr west welcome back to the show gail. Thanks for having me and guess. What is the narrative surprising at all. Like you know no the possible to have any more confusion about the teams like karma. Yeah it does and it. Only i think deepens the divide sewing again more seeds of doubt particularly for those who are on the fence when it gets when it comes to even getting that sonate it. Well i think you're absolutely right. And i know i'm going to be asked this question twenty to thirty times today. I'm getting ready to start my day in practice and the biggest problem with the i mean i see two problems but number one is like hey. No one should wear a mask. Everybody should wear masks. You should get double math if you get vaccinated. Then you're going to be fine and you don't have to worry about. Oh now that you're vaccinated. You still have to wear a mask. And then it's hey you should get a booster shot and then the government steps in and says nope nope. No no no wait a minute. So you're just like what the heck and absolute to your to your point it absolutely sustains more confusion the confused mine does nothing. It's just we're just throwing massive misinformation everywhere. So are they getting ahead of their skis. I'm not talking about the fda panel here but you had. I mean our our own governor in colorado governor jared police i mean he was all excited about the possibility that these booster vaccines would be available in the state. And of course you had those two. Fda panelists coming out in the lancet just last week and saying you know. Maybe not the best idea and governor jerry..

"Five to eleven but once again some mixed messaging when it comes to those booster shots so the sounds the fda advisory board well kind of gave that thought of booster shots for everyone the boot voting yu-nam unanimously. I believe it was eighteen. Zip on friday saying no contrary to what the administration is saying. I know that governor jerry police had his sights set pretty high when it came to making those booster shots available to everyone across the state. Now this fda advisory panel said not so fast. Hang onto your hangers. Let's slow your roll. You're getting a little bit ahead of your skis here. Now yes they did recommend a booster shots for those of certain vintage of a certain age over age sixty five and for those that suffer from Co morbidity underlying medical conditions that they were to contract cova nineteen they could well suffer the worst impacts of co czars. Kobe too but what you need to remember is though the fda panel said no while the fda itself has to vote on that recommendation but if history is any indicator it's likely that they will take the fda panel's recommendations so much confusion surrounding vaccines and booster shots. Are there any dangers to taking a booster shot. Dr jason west is an integrative medical physician fourth generation owner of.
Friends and Foes: The Neuroscience of In-Group and Out-Group
"What led you to focus on in group out group. What was the spot that going ahead. You had you got on that path. Yeah over the twenty years now. Twenty five years or so of my career. I've been interested in in a set of questions that all converge on similar themes one of the question has to do with how it is. We understand ourselves. What do i make my own personality characteristics. How do i decide. What kind of behaviors are appropriate and social interaction. How do i put. It isn't gonna save somebody another how we make sense of others mental states. And what is it that i am. How is it that. I can be successful as i am when i interact with people you know. Humans are much more social than other animals. And we're really good at understanding what others around they're going to do and then the third question is is acknowledgement that. We're good at this but we're not perfect and in fact we make systematic mistakes and errors when we interact with other and i became interested in. What the source of those systematic errors are which of course leads you straight away to the kind of bias that we suffer from when we interact with in group members which is accurate number nine right. I think it's a great segue to just kind of getting a definition for folks listening and you know what what is in group and out group. What is that basic schema constructs and how do we understand so much the effects of it which is basically what he's yeah all. Primates and humans included are fundamentally group animals. We get together with other humans and innocent. Our species has really doubled down on our group. I if you look at how bands of modern hunter gather survive. It's really through the joint efforts of other human that we managed to navigate physical wells. We bring down large animals or how we farm and you know throughout history being banished from group with almost considered a death sentence because human unlike many other animals really do have trouble tonight on our own so so are the interactions we have in our status within groups is really important essentially important to human at individual species but as soon as you create a group by as soon as we band together in some tribe family or tribe or clan what we've done effectively as draw circle around ourselves back exclude others who are not part of our family are part of our tribe part of plans and it turns out that kind profound invitations for how human think about other people. It changes the way we think about those people who are inside of our circle and it fundamentally changes the way we think about people who are outside
Aducanumab: A Controversial Drug for Alzheimer's
"New drug for alzheimer's ought to be good news but a lot of experts. Don't see it that way. The data just aren't there right now to say that. This is the drug to open up the new era for the treatment of alzheimer's possible that it does not work. I don't wanna give them. That is not going to help them and could possibly hurt them. Redo chatterjee here. Npr science correspondent john. Hamilton john who scientists. And what's the drug they're talking about. That was dr. jason carla wish at the university of pennsylvania. Dr david rynd of the institute for clinical and economic review and dr joy snyder of washington university in st louis. The truck they were talking about is called canham out it's now being marketed under the brand name. And it's the first drug ever approved by the food and drug administration to treat the disease process underlying alzheimer's at you home is really good. At reducing those sticky plaques tend to build up in the brains of people with the disease that sounds very promising. Why skepticism from those experts. Because it's still not clear whether reducing those plaques can slow down. The loss of memory and thinking caused by alzheimer's also educate mab has some potentially dangerous side effects like swelling and bleeding in the brain. Oh and then. There's the cost which looks to be about fifty six thousand dollars a

"I didn't know missouri was big in that and sangley. I didn't know how big oklahoma was but we. We have fifteen percent of the beef cows in this country and is more than oklahoma number. Two and missouri number three combined. That's pretty significant and nebraska. Not till fourth i would have expected nebraska to be higher are we so much more because of moorland because we started with such a lead. Is that tax laws and politics. Why is texas still leading. That i think if you look at cowes Texas lease mainly. Because of and we're you know you have to compare that the total size of the state land and acreage compared to oklahoma missouri and air nebraska We're just such a much bigger state because of that and At the cow calf level which is the the reproductive unit. That's you know it takes anywhere from Two or three acres per cow too. If you're way out last may took to support a cal and so landmasses is really the big driving force that And then again we got along heritage of as well to compare beef to Goats chickens the other livestock in terms of profitability and desirability. If a state was saying we really wanna really wanna step this up. What's the one that's the most profitable know You know i'd say You know it's kind of a hard number to look at There How did you look at it as a a.

"I was The nukes generation To use that For those families that have stopped rush cattle operations You know they. They can pass on to the next generation because they've already got the ran's unit required to raise gals It takes a lot of land to raise cattle just because they're grazing animals and And so that becomes a real challenge for somebody that you know just decided you know i wanna be a rancher and get into the cattle business and own my own cattle You know it takes right now at the character level You know you're probably to support a family. You'd have to own around three to four hundred cows to be able to support a family unit Well to do that depending on the area that you're in let's just say the eastern portion of texas you know three hundred cows you're probably looking at haven't own around fifteen hundred land And so you can you. Can you do the math on the cost of land It it runs up pretty dramatically there so it is a challenge for more people getting into The cattle business. Now there are no young rangers. day in and day out that have gotten real creative and they're able to lease land and do some things and they they are successful with it but it is You know a challenge. The one thing that i take my cold is that if you look at Yeah beef cattle production You know the vast majority probably ninety five percent. Plus of our ranches are still family owned You know they've had to get bigger Just because of economies of scale just like any business but You know they they still Have that family atmosphere which is which is the neat thing you know. And i think that's the one thing that we can hang our hat on in the piece beef cattle production and ranching. We're still family operated. yeah that's my romanticized notion..

"We still look at the live animal and select You know an animal that looks good because we gotta look at it every day but but we're also looking at fine tuning our selection to to help us for quantify what we're looking at too so i know you are involved with the texas agra life extension as a beef cattle specialist and. That's actually i mean. That's the university going out into the community and actually helping farmers be better and cattle-raisers be better cattle-raisers and i think that's something texas. Am does extraordinarily well which is make itself relevant to industry and individuals as opposed to being the ivory tower gas. But what are the biggest questions people ask you. When they call cattle raisers. Yeah so we got a lot of different questions from ranchers but Probably the number. One question i did is all the way You know nutrition-related what what else eat my cows you know. How do i know Is my town or see like with diet And you know ultimately the clarifier whether or not you're done a good job is either if they're gain weight or from a cow which is the reproductive unit whether or not she gets bread and has the next year so you know again. Most of our questions are certainly going to be dealing with nutrition. Because that's really at the biggest driver of how cattle perform when we go to the butcher and we buyer stakes whether.

"Has they said on monty python. And now for something entirely different for those of us in texas i understand most of you are outside of texas but for those of us in texas texas a and m university has long and storied history it stands for agricultural and mechanical. The agricultural side is the mechanical. Of course there's a lot of engineering and the like geophysical do a lot of oil exploration here but the agricultural is what has distinguished. Texas am for close going on two hundred years and the university has an amazing reputation for all things agricultural and every so often we liked to have one of their folks on to share what they're up to. Dr jason clear is associate professor and texas agra life extension beef cattle specialist at texas am in college station. But the first thing. I wanted to talk to you about is that you are the coordinator of the texas. Am beef cattle short-course which attracts more than fourteen hundred partic- participants to camp to campus. Each august talk a little bit about that course and who comes to it. Because i'm fascinated by this and i wanna come on. You're absolutely michael and pleasure to be a show day and the opportunity. Yeah texan 'em beef. Cattle course And twenty nineteen We had Over twenty three hundred actually in attendance and that Came to campus and of course it's mostly texas ranchers that come But we also had a twenty different States and a dozen different countries represented a as well and it could be anybody that is has one cow all the way up to ten thousand pounds and it's a variety of of folks that traveled to campus to to learn about these count production and And how how to predict and how to ranch and ultimately had to manage their land and and they're not sources so what are some of the basics that you cover and do you start this. Assuming people have a working knowledge are where where do you. I mean i. I would assume there's a very level of knowledge for you to teach a course like this. You gotta assume they know some things right well and and most have a little bit of a knowledge but you'd be surprised that every year we see a lot of new people that maybe purchase land. And you know if you've got land in texas or across the us you wanna to run some cattle on it and So they may have been an engineer or or who knows what they made in a previous career and so they may know very little about the the industry and then we have some ranchers that have been in business for seventy five years that That need that are at a higher level with that Beef cattle short course is really kind of a cafeteria style. So we got over twenty different concurrent sessions during that two and a half days and And so we've got sessions for the basic rancher the newbie all the way to you know very advanced You know type. Genetics and selection and nutrition and For those who are experienced and so it's say it's a little bit for everybody. Out is the most interesting development in genetics beef cattle over the last twenty years. What would be the one thing that's made the biggest Change impact well. I think as we the most one of the last twenty years is You know the violence and marker assisted Selection and beef cattle. So going back. Two hundred years ago. It was like tattle based off of what they look like. You know what we as the good animal and as we moved on through we started collecting data on. You know animals that Gain the fastest or produce the highest quality meat and then we started doing statistical analysis but in the last twenty Twenty five years. We really started looking at dna. Technology and marker sits selection. That's really helped our ranchers to more fine tune their selection capabilities again..
Seniors in Florida camp overnight for vaccine
"Centers continue to be flooded with coronavirus patients, officials are telling first responders to stop transporting those who have little to no chance of survival, including patients with no pulse if they can't be brought back on the scene or terminally ill patients with do not resuscitate orders. Ambulance crews have also been told to limit the use of oxygen oxygen treatment because some facilities are having issues finding enough portable oxygen containers. Keep up with the need. Ah, lot of hospitals really around the country are either at or even above capacity. Right now. Doctors expect another post holiday surge of covert 19 cases. Here's NBC's Matt Gutman, public health officials are warning that covert crisis is spiraling out of control, forcing some ers and ICUs. Turn away patients. If you have someone going in the labor having a heart attack who gets into a car accident on an icy road, they may not have a bed because the ICUs or full nationwide, a record 128,000 people hospitalized because of Cove. It In L. A county. The situation is so dire that ambulance crews are now being advised to cut back on oxygen use and not to transport patients with little chance of survival to hospitals. Last week, Martin Luther King Hospital in south L. A declaring an internal disaster, turning away ambulances for several hours. The positivity rate there is a staggering 32%. Well, you know, it's a kind of thing you might do if there has been some catastrophic event that has disabled the hospital, for example. Like what? Um, you know, like, let's say fire or flooding or Bomb exploded or something like that.

French President Emmanuel Macron Tests Positive for the Coronavirus
"Macron has tested positive for covert 19 and will isolate for seven days while continuing to work as we've been reporting record tests now from the coronavirus, one concern for medical experts as they roll out the vaccine is reports of allergic reactions. Two cases in Alaska in recent days. Dr. Jason Farley is a nursing professor of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Importantly, there are safety measures in place we we once we give a dose of vaccine. We have the individual wait for at least 15 minutes to ensure that there is no animal axis or allergic reaction, and if there is we have clear protocols in place to address it. Importantly, we don't yet know exactly what component of the vaccine results in NFL axis. So the FDA recommended that individuals with a history of severe allergic reaction not received the vaccine at this time. Johns Hopkins

"Need to be treated. So that's the point is that you have to. There's a limit to the screening. But you know there's there's well established protocols that people studies breast cancer for example. Mammogram something study. But they're rolling sort of the usa ceo. Maybe start at age. Forty native actually recently been sort of moving back down to maybe age fifty same with colonoscopy for example one of the big successes of screening has been cold in oskanian removal of sort of early. Cancer has made a big difference in terms of reducing colon cancer But they're also talking about you know maybe a you don't need it They actually just roll. I think just last two weeks or something they actually said we should start earlier in part because i think they're worried that with the obesity epidemic. They're actually getting more and more. So if you look at these obesity related cancers roxy finding them younger and younger because the younger and younger populations are getting this obesity. So i think they just recommended instead of each fifty they actually rolled it down to like each forty five or something to get colon is still a good idea to screening because one of these cautious things they have to. You have to be wary so certain. Things didn't pan out baby thaw. Psa super controversial for prostate cancer. Vira cancer didn't turn out to be useful so but you you pick and choose. The big ones are going to breast and colorectal of so given what you learned about this research that you did for cancer code which is an amazing book to get it. A revolutionary understanding of a medical mystery. What what does the future look like for cancer. 'cause i know it feels to me as a doctor. Someone says i've diabetes. I have alzheimer's. I have heart disease. I have an autoimmune disease. I have this. I'm like great. I got that cancer. It's like you know not so easy. So what does the future look like in terms of prevention and treatment of cancer. I think the there's two different things to in terms of treatment of cancer. Of course a lot of these things that we talk about are not applicable. Once you have the cancer like you can't just use die. Like i would never say to somebody you know. Just use the at her just as finding like no. You need to get that surgery or radiation or chemotherapy or whatever they're recommending for you because by that time you have a high risk of other other issues you can visit us at jump but the treatments have come a long way because again we've moved past now that sort of idea that we to find the genetic cure for all these cancers and now we're sort of moving into the age of immunotherapy which is taking this idea that cancer is sort of this evolving sort of new species and saying le. Let's use our immune system to try and destroy it. So we've been seeing some sort of incredible successes from a therapeutic standpoint with these new agencies sort of checkpoint inhibitors and car t. and some of these other things really a very hopeful of course that depends on a lot of research dollars with very high tech sort of stuff but it's more exciting from a prevention standpoint because the you know the only real successes we have in cancer medicine are really in prevention so stopping smoking for example is sort of so far ahead of anything else we do for cancer. It's all through prevention same with colonoscopy an for colorectal cancer Really start to see as these things as you do more and more screening so as you go from the seventies eighties to the nineties. Two thousand for example you can see that as people start to accept that they need to do the screening that colorectal cancer mortality is slowly coming down And and that's where the future lies. I'm hopeful because we're starting to bring into sort of Clear picture that. Hey all of these things. These dietary things we talked about are so important stuff that you write about for example. So well that. Hey this is great news. That people are paying attention to it. Because those are the cancers that are rising in terms of Numbers right those are practically the only cancers that are rising in numbers are easy related cancers so if we can understand that if we can make people aware of that of the dangers of sugar so for example sugar intake peaked around year two thousand but prior to that was really go out very high right the you know drinking their gay terrains and stuff you know they like. Oh yeah i just worked out. So i'm gonna have a gaiter full sugar right. I don't do that anymore like you know. I look around like you know how surprised you'll even canada. People may be are are better over there. In america still sugar palooza probably probably i think that's all i mean. Look eighty eight percent of us are metabolic land healthy and and the translation of metabolic went healthy. Means your insulin resistant and think about that. Almost nine hundred. Ten americans are on track for these diseases caused by too much insulin including cancer including cancer and all those other diseases talk about alzheimer's and all that sort of stuff but you know and and part of it i think is You know if you look at the total number like total amount of sugar it has been going down but it's still very high. I think that's that's the big problem..

"So the annually. In the far north some people used to call s goes so again eating traditional diet very high and say you know animal whale meat and ceo blubber and stuff. That's the traditional diet. They never get those cancers that we may get some viral cancers. but they don't yet colorectal cancer breast cancer. In fact the university in ontario canada used to send an expedition to the arctic circle. Sort of every year. The find out why these people were immune but of course Weren't actually because as soon as in the sixty seventies and eighties. These changed their lifestyle to western sort of lifestyles with the sort of bread and sugar and all that sort of processed foods that we eat. Then you started to see all the cancers so clearly. It wasn't a genetic problem because the gene pool of these africans or these enemy. We're not changing. But it was the soil that any comes back of course to diet and lifestyle which is the most important thing because at the main thing is changing these people come over that is what is the biggest determinant of cancer. We you know these. These these go from considered immune to cancer to high rates of cancer. Of course eating sugar all the time right tons of smoking all this other stuff and you see so you see this in japan where you can look at japanese women in japan compared to japanese women in san francisco and of course the person in san francisco has about double or triple the rate of breast cancer. Care to the japanese women in japan. So it's like this is clear evidence that the most important thing we need to focus on is not a genetics of the problem. It's the soil problem right. The my favorite story is the polish women who from poland. Eat thirty pounds of sauerkraut. A year may have almost no breast cancer and it affects their microbiome was a pre pre probiotic food plus cabbage has all sorts of phytochemicals that fight cancer and though when they moved the united states they get cancelled. Same rates as american women because he stopped beating all the sauerkraut absolutely and these are the things that are really important. Because if you can figure it out of course then you have the ability to do the opposite. You could take a woman in san francisco and cut her risk of breast cancer by factor of two or three. Imagine how amazing that would be. I mean with genetics. All this stuff. We're talking about like you know you're making progress inches compared to diet and lifestyle where you're talking both huge leaps and jumps like you're not talking about ten percent higher risk. You know medicine how. Oh it's statistically significant there's a ten percent risk and it's like these people never get cancer. It's like it's crazy. The magnitude of improvement you can get or on the other hand. Ten percent is two hundred or three hundred percent right totally different. A totally different order scale to and yet we focus all of our sort of resources on saying. Oh let's figure out you know this. Genetic condition which might affect like one percent of these cancer patients. In france like okay. Let's look to try to figure out the other stuff like what is it. Sugar is it is it. You know from entered foods is processed foods like what is that. Because that's so important unfortunately against so little Sort of research money and you know he start talking all want the other shop right so people are listening wondering okay. This whole soil thing makes sense. You wanna create a hostile environment for cancer to grow. How do we build that hostile environment instead of a fertile one that most of africa. Yeah that's a great question. So i talked about in the book about What is it that makes cells grow. It was really important. Is sort of growth. Factors body contains natural growth factors that increase the rate of growth and one of the big things of the last sort of fifteen twenty years has been the realization that our body contains nutrients sensors which are hormones. That go up when you eat but they also are precisely the same hormones that are bought uses growth factors so the most important one insulin. So insulin of course is a well-known metabolic hormones. Eat insulin goes up not. you're eating. Carbohydrates protein sort of a mixed meal. You eat insulin goes up but more importantly what it is nutrient sensor tells your body. That food is available in reason. That's important is because your body only wants to grow when nutrients are available right so you don't wanna your singing. Don't want more cells to continue to grow if that's not a good survival strategy so the body links them in fact if you look back in evolutionary times insulin was not a metabolic hormone is actually a growth factor. So the when as we evolve yuppie used the same molecule that we use as a growth factor for nutrients signaling as well so we know that islam is a very pro growth factor. There's this thing called insulin. Like growth factor. Jeff one and Vaulter lago actually described the this. This group of ecuadorian dwarfs the lar- on boards. Who actually have almost no i. Jeff ones are the very short turns out. they're also immune to cancer. Because if you don't have that growth signaling than the cells can't grow in the cells that are the most affected are those cancer cells so what you have to do. Of course it say that. Okay if we have too much insulin. Then that's going to be a signal to our body that we need to grow. So what can you do to sort of reduce that insulin signaling in the body. I reducing nutrient availability. Which is two things. One is getting rid of the hyper processed foods which tends to really fai insulin. Response of sugar for example as a special. I'm because they causes all of us. Insulin resistance which causes hyperinsulinemia a lotta. The refined foods are very bad. Because they sort of take away all the other natural components. You're left with this big spike of unlikely. If you eat cookies for example while you know it's just gonna you're just in a spike up the other thing of course if you eat very very frequently you're going to heap insulin. High all the time so intermittent fasting another strategy that you could use to produce insulin. And that's why you eat when you eat. Yeah exactly so. It's what you eat. I you because if you eat a high carbohydrate diet which people did like people in china for example use eat a ton of white rice but almost zero sugar and they were okay. So it's not necessarily just the carbohydrates island in china for while you're chinese. I mean i traveled around. Remember nineteen eighty-four they. They had no accoutrements of modern living. I mean they had to cut a board they would use a saw to create boards. They they would grind the flower they would like larry walk in circles for hours with the grain between two giant stones. They've working field for fourteen hours a day with hard labour and yeah you need a lot of rice thence chan and it's also like it was very young. It was like rice and vegetables like every day is just rice and vegetables rights. Vegetables live the land of milk. And honey the chinese phrase for it is the land of fish and rice. That's really what they think. So so so you're telling me about what is the problem. Which.

Try to help. Keep you from being angry. And now back to my chat with jason jason knowing what you know i know. There's so many different kinds of cancer. Everybody has their own situation and has to make their own decision. But with the extensive knowledge you have on cancer. If you or somebody in your family was diagnosed what path would you take when you get the cancer. There's really That's where the research has been very good. They've put a lot of money into trying to out the best regimens and you know she should take in this drug versus the struggling district so they've put a lot of effort and money into developing the best sort of benjamin's what we've gone from a treatment standpoint i would just go with whatever the holiday trip recommended and that's changing all. It's one where you can really start to make a difference in understanding is sort of looking at how cancer progresses and seeing if there's any way you can change it because you know transformation this cancerous transformation is only the first part of the process after that it's the has to develop that is You know even if you have cancer cell and needs to develop let one of the things that there's this sort of increasing understanding of what makes a cancer so row than another and that's again one of the sort of the the environment. What part of the environment is it. And that comes to the real question of sorta nutrition and cancer which is another huge fascinating talk. We've always known that nutrition plays a huge role in catching nineteen eighty one. The government should of asked a couple of very prominent cancer researchers who say what are the causes the known causes of cancer so we look at something called a population attribution faction tobacco. Smoking of the known causes cancer was the biggest about thirty five percents so smoking as a contributes to about thirty five percent of all cancers that we know about and the second one which is very close on the heels of tobacco smoke was diet and way above everything else like way above radiation way of chemicals way above the stop that we worry about like pesticides and all the stock which is like one percent or two percent diet. They estimated was vote thirty to forty percent of the attributable risk of cancer. So that's really interesting because the next question of course was well if the diet is such a huge part of how cancer or grass. Which car of the diet is it. That's important and that's where we spent decades trying to find the answer so the first thought was that it's fiber like we don't eat enough fiber and the thought was nineteen seventies. If you ain't fiber than you would should have have more and bigger bowel movements and that would sort of push out all the stuff. Clean out your colon. Maybe it's the infrequent bowel movements that are allowing sue to sort of ross in your cause cancer so they did all kinds of studies and in the two thousands what they found of course after three or four studies was that eating more fiber simply does not your risk of cancer. So that's sort of fell by the wayside. Then they said well maybe it's dietary fat because they fought. How's everything else. They thought it caused. Obesity costs heart. Disease turns out within really but that's what they thought never made any sense because americans on average had eating the same amount of fat is before but we didn't have any role in cancer certain populations like the initially eight lots of fat like whale blubber and seal blubber and Islanders a coconut all day. Long very very high in saturated fat and they were getting cancer in any particular knows. There's no reason to think that it did. But they thought while. Maybe it's the digest factors. It does everything else so they did a huge study all the women's health initiative where they randomized people to hide low fat diets and after like ten years but they found was no difference in main difference. If you ate a lot of fat little fat so dietary fiber was not the answer. Dietary fat was not the engine. Then they thought well maybe. It's some kind of vitamin deficiency. Because maybe you're just lacking something and if you replace it you can reduce your risk cancer. So they did a big study on beta carotene. Which is what you get in parents. The thing that makes it orange as a precursor to vitamin a which is why they say it's good for is because it's pressure to biden and they. They randomized people and vitamin as a beta. Carotene didn't make any difference. In fact that seems to make things worse then looked at vitamin d so full of acid might even be twelve. They did a couple huge randomized trials by this. I mean these are studies that take like ten years and thirty million dollars and five universities to complete their huge trials and.
"dr jason" Discussed on The Ultimate Health Podcast
"Jason. Welcome back to the podcast. It's great to have you on paul. Thanks for having great to be here. We're gonna have a great discussion today. I really loved the new book. The cancer code. And i gotta admit when i dug into the book. It was really what i expected. I was thinking would be more along the lines of fasting. How that could help prevent maybe treat cancer given your background fasting but it was so much more than that. I mean that would have been a great book but this goes really deep into cancer and the evolution of our thinking of cancer over so many years so congrats. I really enjoyed this. Oh thank you very much. And i think that's sort of when i started looking at the issue of cancer. That was sort of how i got into it. Which is why you know most people. I would think think it's going to be about all about sort of fasting and nutrition and cancer but as done sort of deeper into the topic of cancer. There's just so much else going on because clearly cancer is a much more. Broad problem than just attrition because we know things like smoking for example has nothing to do with nutrition. What you eat if you smoke your risk of cancer just goes way way up saying with the best for example. You've exposed as fast as it doesn't really matter what you eat. You're you're great risk of developing a museum which is the type of lung cancer. So that's sort of while it was sort of how got into it as it developed as looking through it more became <hes>. More and more the question which is never really answered. I think that is really important. Is the sort of how we think about what this problem really is. That is what is cancer. And that's i think one of the greatest remaining medical mysteries because most of these other diseases that we face we sort of know what's causing that. So even when we get a new virus like poof nineteen for example within a few months. We've got this virus like look you know it's still kicking our bod but we've sequenced. We figured it out. It's this is the virus. This is the sequence you know. The dna sequence. This is how it gets in. We've said okay it's the ace two receptors. You know you get at the site of storms. We know so much about it. Even within six months of this sort of brand new disease coming up which has greatest fascinating. Yeah something like hiv. For example it took us years to figure out the actual virus going from age hiv to sort of treatment whereas now you know thirty forty years down the line. We figured out what this virus looks like. We figured out know where detaches we figure so much. Stop so quickly but the problem is that with cancer. What is this disease. Such a strange disease because it's a common disease. It's the second biggest killer of americans yet. If you were to ask the question of what is this disease. People have no idea. Most experts have no idea like you ask the american cancer society and it says well. It's a disease of genetic mutations and that's not really correct because if it was simply a matter of genetics that is <hes>. You know just bad luck genetically then. Why does environment play such a huge role in this genetic disease. That is if you have a disease. Such as cystic fibrosis sickle cell anemia. All these genetic diseases they passed on sort of mother to child or they have a significantly higher risk in we can identify the genes that are associated with it on the other hand. It doesn't matter if you're japanese if you're african if occasion <hes>. If you smoke you're much more likely to get lung cancer. So it's not a genetic disease in that sense yet. People have been saying it's genetic disease donate disease and the problem with that. Is that if you don't understand what causes it. Your research sort of goes in the wrong direction that is looking for these genetic mutations and they progress in cancer has really slowed to a halt. Like if you think about how many genetic sort of tours for cancer we have. It's very very few the number of medications that makes a difference to cancer. You can count on one hand in most of those were developed in the early part of the sort of late nineties early two thousands rates with that was twenty years ago and whereas all these great genetic cures for cancer. We just don't see them in because it's not nearly a genetic disease and we have to sort of understand further and this is this is really an exploration of how the way we think about cancer has changed over the last little bit because there's been a huge paradigm shift from being a genetic disease tomorrow <unk> logical evolutionary disease which has huge implications for treatment.

Sober Holiday Survival
"First and foremost guess what you guys were still in the middle of this pandemic and that means when it comes to holiday parties. There's not very many of them this year. Your office party might not be happening. Your family parties might be smaller versions of themselves. The large group restrictions of covid safety are really going to work in your favor this year as far as staying sober i quit drinking in the middle of november four years ago so it was right before the holiday season started in getting through. The holidays was definitely the hardest time of year for me. Not just because. I was in the beginning of recovery but because we think everyone associates the holidays with drinking spoiler alert. Not everyone does but we usually did so. We assume that others think the same way. I believe that if you can make it through the holidays and just get them out of the way the rest of your early recovery will be that much simpler. And i'm telling you this because if there's any part of your brain that saying no i'm not ready yet. I'll drink this season. And then i'll start in january. Don't listen to it. Do not listen to that voice in your head. This is your year to do it. This is your holiday season to do it not having to have to go to so many parties this year. It's gonna work in your favor because it's that many times that you won't have to turn down an event or say no to an alcoholic beverage. It's like putting bumpers on the bowling lanes when kids go bowling. So that their ball doesn't go into the gutter or wearing floaters or waterwings or whatever. You wanna call the inflatable things. That kids put on their arms so they can get into the pool and not sink. You get bumpers and florida's this twenty twenty holiday season and that's very lucky for you. Use that to your advantage and just go for it. It won't always be this easy next for the events that you do have to go to cherry pick them. You don't have to say yes to the mall. If this were a holiday season without covid you would definitely want to cherry. Pick them. And when i say pick i mean like take a look at all of them and pick out the ones you don't need and just stick with the ones that you absolutely do. You don't have to say yes to everything and you also don't have to explain why you're making this decision to anyone let alone. Everyone and no is a complete sentence. I just feel like in your first year. You get to be weird you know without having to explain in this is the year that luckily get to blame a virus for just about everything without being questioned so if you think party or an event is going to be hard to get through without drinking. It's not worth going to. You're allowed to say no and guess what going to lose sleep. Believe it or not. They're probably not thinking about you and that's not to say that you're not amazing because i certainly think you're amazing but you are the center of your own universe. And they're the center of their first. So if you're not sure don't go and let the world keep turning. Caving and drinking is not worth going to any party. I don't care who's there. If you do decide to go to an event the most important thing you can do before you show up is decide that you're not drinking. Don't go there still unsure if you're going to drink unsure means you're still on the fence and you haven't decided if you want a drink or not then. You're going to do that thing. We go back and forth during the party for the entire time weighing whether or not you want to drink you're not even having fun or enjoying the party at that point. Because you're just going through negotiations in your head and you could be doing that at home and more comfortable shoes or sweatpants if you decide. I'm not going to drink at this party. No matter what the decision is made you can just drink your toshiko and get on with enjoying the party and that sounds like a much better time than being stuck inside your head. The decision is often the hardest part so get it out of the way before you even ring the doorbell and then if you've already decided that you're not drinking your body just has to follow suit so decide i. Your actions will catch up with your brain.

Fasting Strategies for Weight Loss & Metabolism with Dr. Jason Fung
"Walk everybody to fasting. Transformation summit or rear uncovering agent inexpensive powerful healing strategy. Known mankind fasting. I'm your host. Dr david joggers. And today we're gonna talk about alternate day. Fasting strategies for chronic disease brought in one of the top experts. He's actually got to bestselling books where he really goes into detail on fasting. He's all over youtube band. You could find him. You just type in dr jason on youtube. You'll see all these amazing nydia his and brought him on today to talk about alternate day fasting in really go into a little bit more the history of fasting as well so dr. Jason fung is a canadian nephrologist which is basically a kidney specialist. Dr fund graduated from the university of toronto and completed his residency at the university of california los angeles. He lives and works in toronto canada where he co founded the intensive dietary management grants is a world leading expert on intermittent fasting and low carb Treating people with type two diabetes and is the author of the bestseller the obesity code and the complete guide. Fasting is high near the use of therapy Sassoon for weight loss and type two diabetes reversal in his. Ibm clinic and you can find his website ibm program that's all one word idea. Program dot com ad also featured on the diet. Dr dot com. And so dr jason. Thanks so much for being on the vast transformation summit with us. Thanks for having me great to be here absolutely and sought curious in how nephrologist how you really got involved with. Sassine will begin west. Well the the most common reason for kidney failure is type two diabetes and the thing about type two diabetes. It's really a reversible disease but it's not taking drugs that really reverses the disease if you take drugs if you take insulin really. You're not gonna get a lot better. In fact you just wind up taking them sort of year after year and every year you go to the doctor you get more and more drugs however Everybody already knows that if you lose weight that type two diabetes almost always goes away so if you have a friend who loses way you can almost bet your bottom dollar that diabetes will get better or go away so it's not a chronic and progressive disease like we've been told israeli irreversible disease but you've got to focus on what's important which is not giving drugs which is you know using the diet to effect weight loss. That's really where i started. So i became very interested in the question of weight loss and look at it from sort of physiologic standpoint. Because the thing about it is that we lost. There's all this Talk like this you know. No shortage of oxen talk about weight loss and how to lose weight. Big business weight watchers and jenny craig. And all that sorta stuff and they're all focused. I think on some things sort of not completely relevant. Which is the the calories there. They all talk about calories calories calories but when you look at it from physiologic stent white The body doesn't count calories it has no calorie receptors. Doesn't know how many calories you're eating so it's like if you're taking all this care to count the number of calories in your body doesn't really care about it at all then. Why do you think you're going to make a difference. You want the body to do something and you think restricting the number of calories does it with the body has no idea what you're talking about like you're talking to different languages so it doesn't it doesn't work and that's where i really got interested in the Sort of notion and it's really about hormones because the body responds to hormones are whole body works on hormones that is You know if you're hot then you sweat if you're cold than you. You know shiver and so on but all affected by hormones and our responses in this case in most cases of weight. It's insulin and one of the ways to really reduce the fun is to use something. Like fasting in intermittent

"Of thing and you can also follow me on twitter or instagram. That's at dr jason fung. Dr jason fung and then the fasting that it also has a paid program where we try to provide the sort of help for people because people you know might have good intentions of fast thing to lose weight in reverse type two diabetes on but they need some help to do it so this is hopefully providing some of the Sort of necessary Necessary tools. The community supportive communities of answering questions provide the education necessary. You know what do i do if this happens. What do i know this happened. So really trying to provide that supportive The supportive environment that people can succeed in it And then Also worked with a company called peak t which provides the a line of fasting t that grazing the really. good drink. drink them every day. almost and You know it comes as the packets of tea as crystallized teaser. They brew the tea in the cold brew. Crystallize it. So there's actually higher. Higher levels of certain antioxidants called cans which are thought to be appetite. Suppressing and so on. So that's why might be a little bit useful in very useful. Adjunct fasting if you're having difficulties they have a whole line of fasting t which i worked with them on. And that's that's hopefully you know all things trying to help people do. The fasting..
The New Science of Why We Get Cancer with Dr. Jason Fung
"Dr fong welcome to the broken brain. Podcast thanks for having me here. I'm really excited. Many of our listeners. Know that my my family like a lot of families out there has been touched by cancer. Mom few years ago about ten years ago was diagnosed with breast cancer had aunts that have been also diagnosed with breast cancer and my grandfather passed away of cancer bone cancer. That was there so. I think i'm representative of a lot of people who have been through this journey supporting family members and are just curious not only for their own health and their families south but curious about what is this thing and i want to first start off by saying you know your books and the way that you approach writing. I really appreciate because you're taking a premise and idea that people seem to hold a true. And you're bringing new contrarian thinking we used to think of fasting as being this restrictive thing potentially dangerous and you highlighted the research around that field. That helped us understood. That fasting is actually central to healing inside of our body with things like diabetes and other diseases. And you're doing it again with cancer by questioning the basic premise. And i want to pull a quote from your book to start off the conversation. Which is you say and you start off in the book you say the most pressing question cancer. Research is the most lucid question. What is cancer. So can we start off there because it's still a question that we're asking today. Which is what exactly is cancer. Yeah that's sort of the most important thing is understan- disease you really have to understand what it is like a causes et what the disease is lily for the of the common Diseases cancer stands virtually alone because we had no idea what this disease actually so you look at other diseases like cove it or you know infections. We've identified viruses. We've identified bacteria. We've figured out fungi. And so these are external invaders for heart disease and stuff. These are you know. Blockages in our blood vessels which starved the heart. Or the brain of blood to get heart attacks or strokes so we sort of understand what the disease how it develops in that kind of thing But for cancer sort of a very very strange disease. So it's it's unlike any other disease we've ever face is not a faster. Disease like heart disease is not an external invasion like bacteria or viruses You know it's not a you know stones and stuff. There's all these other diseases. But what is this strange disease and it's not that it's one of these sort of rare. It's unfortunately extremely comments. Lifetime risk of cancer is somewhere around one ten. And it's gonna you know affect everybody's life in that if you don't get it you will know people who will get it almost. Everybody does but we don't know what this is. This is the whole sort of discussion in the book is. What is this disease. Because it's a disease where the you have a normal sal which is part of your own body as it's derived from your own body and for some reason this normal cell he breaks off and becomes cancerous to the point where it can kill you and it kills of course many many fullest the second killer of people so our concept of what this disease actually is has been changing so you know it's changed throughout history really even in the last ten years. There's been this massive change in the way that we look at disease in this what. I call the paradigms of cancer that is you know not arguing about. Oh this you know this is how to treat cancer like we've done lots of studies on you know. Use this drug. The of these drugs in combination with surgery. Chemotherapy and radiation. You put him in this sort of you can treat cancer. I'm not disputing any of that. But in the end it doesn't help the answer. The question of what is if you want understand what it is then you have to start a starts from beginning. Go through it on say. What is this disease. That's where we really made a bata progress within the last sort of fifteen twenty years and most people haven't even really appreciate that. And that's what i wanted to bring forward. Is that sort of recent research and bring it to the people so they at least understand what this disease is. That data is affecting so many people

Yeah that's sort of the most important thing is understan- disease you really have to understand what it is like a causes et what the disease is lily for the of the common Diseases cancer stands virtually alone because we had no idea what this disease actually so you look at other diseases like cove it or you know infections. We've identified viruses. We've identified bacteria. We've figured out fungi. And so these are external invaders for heart disease and stuff. These are you know. Blockages in our blood vessels which starved the heart. Or the brain of blood to get heart attacks or strokes so we sort of understand what the disease how it develops in that kind of thing But for cancer sort of a very very strange disease. So it's it's unlike any other disease we've ever face is not a faster. Disease like heart disease is not an external invasion like bacteria or viruses You know it's not a you know stones and stuff. There's all these other diseases. But what is this strange disease and it's not that it's one of these sort of rare. It's unfortunately extremely comments. Lifetime risk of cancer is somewhere around one ten. And it's gonna you know affect everybody's life in that if you don't get it you will know people who will get it almost..
"dr jason" Discussed on Mornings With Gail - 1310 KFKA
"Changing for the good. Six forty nine now, thirteen ten, KFI thirteen ten K.. K., A. Dot com Dr Jason West has an integrative medical physician and a fourth generation owner of West Clinic in Idaho. So tough on that age group, I was just talking to a son of a friend of mine sixteen years of age and he he's chafing at the bit because at that period in life arguably, it's more important than at any other time these kids are social and I mean, yes. I understand schools are doing the best they can in terms of remote and virtual learning. But that is no replacement for the interaction that they get at school and how important it is in those formative years. It's vital it's it's critical, and now what we're trying to do as a parent and as a healthcare provider is, what can we do? into fill the healthy void and and what can we do to live life and and be safe and be you know? Conscientious of everybody else watching what we're doing and how we can interact and at the same time making sure. Hey, what can I do to help my son in help you know his friends and people that he's influencing you help ourselves. It's true because it eventually and this is what is is. Kind of the unknown or at least not talked about messages. This is such a wakeup call for everybody that you are. Health and your health is so it's our most important possession in a few. What's fascinating I see these entrepreneurs that come into the office and many times they'll sacrifice their health. For well, you know they'll work at these sixteen eighteen hours a day for years building up a company, and then they don't feel the way that they should because they have really tax their body and then they kinda give up their wealth for health because they've got to get their system and their body back in place and and that's what we need to be focusing on US look we're all GonNa get exposed to I mean, is this just inevitable that were going to affect all of us? What determines whether someone is really sick and someone that has no symptoms or minor symptoms is their individual immune system and Patrick Henry said the price. Of Liberty is eternal vigilance and we could also say that the price of health is also eternal vigilance. So let's get healthy. Wow.

Fever confusion: How to tell apart COVID-19 and the common flu
"Many of us will phase, especially this fall and winter is a cove it or is it the flu, CBS's Christine Lazare spoke to a specialist, both influenza and covert 19 are highly infectious respiratory illnesses. And Dr Jason Care. Kino with one medical in Beverly Hills, says the symptoms of both are very similar. We're talking fever, chills, muscle, a cough, fatigue, shortness of breath, runny eyes, runny nose. But there is a key difference. The incubation period for the flu is quick about 1 to 2 days from exposure with Cove it it could be anywhere from two days. 22 weeks where symptoms that we don't see with flu Influenza we do see with covert 19 is a loss of sense of smell and taste for both covert 19 and flew. It is possible to spread the virus for at least a day before experiencing any symptoms. If a person has cove it, they may be contagious for a longer period of time than if they had just the flu. The
Why You Should Stop Snacking And Start Fasting
"Hello Jason. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thanks for having me on. We're GONNA have a great chat I. Loved Your Latest Book that you co wrote with eve and Meghan, and this is titled Life in the Fast Lane. I'm curious to start. How does somebody WHO's a kidney specialists get? So interested in fasting as a subject yeah. That's a great question I think that what happened is that as? A kidney specialists, what I do is I see a lot of type two diabetics and as we've had this sort of increasing obesity epidemic since the nineteen seventies that sort of was followed by an epidemic of type two diabetes starting in the late nineteen eighties, nineteen nineties, and then type two diabetes is actually far and away the most common cause of kidney disease. So as you know we went into the two, thousand, two, thousand ten we started to see much more and more of type two diabetes related kidney disease. So I actually encountered it quite a bit and as it became more and more important part of my practice I started to think about weight loss because the entire way that we treat you know. Disease is sort of backwards that is if you look at type two diabetes related kidney disease, for example, we spend a lot of money and effort trying to design drugs and dialysis and all that sort of stuff. However, the actual treatment doesn't make sense because we have kidney disease from type two diabetes while the answers to how to get rid of it is. Telling you right there if you have if you don't have type two diabetes, then you can't get diabetic related disease and if you lose weight year type two diabetes will get better. So the real answer to this whole problem lies in getting to the root cause, which is the weight. If you lose weight, then you don't get the type two diabetes. You don't get the kidney disease and that's really the only good way to treat the disease yet as a medical profession nobody was interested. In weight loss and to a large extent nobis really interested. We started gave up this entire concept which is so important. So fundamental to human health because this is what we face in North America today, lot of problems of of touchy diabetes and obesity, and we gave it up to like you know weight watchers, Jenny Craig and all those sorts of things it's like that's fine but it's really an important subject. So that's when I started to look at the question of weight loss and When I looked at it was clear that there wasn't a lot of really good thinking in the area. The entire field was dominated by sort of calories in calories out theory that is you know we've all heard this before you know it's just a matter of eating fewer calories and exercising more like if you actually think about it for a little bit, it actually makes very little sense that is you know it's a very sort of simplistic argument because the question is not whether people are eating more calories or burning less calories. The question is sort of wire the eating mark how And why are they not burn as many calories and it turns out that the real answer to why we're gaining weight is more likely related to our hormones. Then the number of calories were eating as an example, you can eat two different foods of the same. The same number calories. So you could eat broccoli or you could drink Soda Strictly Soda. Well, it's very easy to gain weight if you're drinking soda. But almost nobody gained weight eating Broccoli. So the point is that for two foods that are the same calories they're completely different in the minute you put it in your mouth. The hormonal response to those two foods is completely and utterly different. So if the hormones different the hormonal instructions that we deliver to our body or going to be completely different. So a simple example as tidy if you drink sugary soda, there's almost no sitadi signalling. You don't feel full from drinking sugary soda yet if you eat a large number of calories of Broccoli or steak or any sort of real. Natural food you will get full. So that's a simple example of how the body responds to these calories to foods of equal calories but totally different response from our bodies, and therefore what's important is not just the number of calories that this sort of hormonal response and that's you know that's what I talk about. A lot of is this sort of trying to get to the root cause of what causes weight gain rather than this, very, very simplistic sort of calories in calories out model which to be honest hasn't really helped anybody that is it's in the standard sort of advice for. Doctors and Dietitians everybody to count your calories yet it almost helps nobody. So you know here we have a treatment which is counting calories and doing calorie restricted diets, which has a failure rate's probably on the order of ninety nine percent. So it's like why would that be standard treatment if the failure rates like ninety, nine percent I, it's not just my opinion you see it in the numbers like the numbers don't lie there's more and more obesity out there people try to lose weight they count their calories and they don't lose weight. So it's not a very good strategy from all sorts of from all angles
Senate Hearing Recap: Reopening Amid The Coronavirus
"Tonight. A dire warning from Dr Anthony FAUCI reopening the country too soon during the corona virus crisis will cost lives. There is a real risk that you will trigger an outbreak that you might not be able to control which in fact have reduc sickly will set you back not only leading to some suffering and death. It could be avoided. Could even set you back on the road to TRY TO GET ECONOMIC RECOVERY. A reality check from the nation's top infectious disease expert which stands in stark contrast to president. Trump's push to reopen the country. Tuesday Senate hearing unlike any before with the witnesses and many senators appearing remotely by conference an all-too-familiar precaution in the pandemic four of the nation's top health officials responsible for the Federal Response Dr Fallacy. Cdc Director Robert Redfield FDA Commissioner Steven Hahn and Admiral Brett Jarar offering their unfiltered assessments among the takeaways. Dr Faucher cautioning. It's a bridge too far to expect Corona virus treatments or a vaccine in time for the fall school semester the head of CDC could not say when the agency will finally released detailed advice to states. About how and when to reopen public places like schools churches and restaurants. When is it going to be released? Because states are reopening right now and we need this additional guidance to make those decisions. I do anticipate this broader guidance. Oh It'd be posted on the CDC website. Soon I soon isn't terribly helpful. And Dr Ci says the already staggering corona virus. Death toll is likely higher than what's reported the official statistic. Dr Faucher is that eighty thousand Americans have died from the pandemic. There are some epidemiologist who suggests the number may be fifty percent higher than that of what do you think. I'm not sure Senator Sanders if it's going to be fifty percent higher but most of us feel that the number of deaths are likely higher than that number. There may have been people who died at home. Who did have who are not counted as Kobe because they never really got to? The hospital. Tuesday's hearing grew tense at times with Republican. Senator Rand Paul clashing with Dr Jason. We can listen to your advice but there are people on the other side. Tangiers not going to be a surge and then we can safely open the economy and I have never made myself out to be the end all and only voice of this. I'm a scientist. A physician at a public health official. I give advice. According the best scientific evidence as Democrat seized on shortcomings in the trump administration's response resident trump must acknowledge that the several responses in sufficient and that more people are dying as a result but there was one point of bipartisan agreement. One thing that's abundantly clear. We need dramatically more testing. Would our country had done so far. Intesting is impressive but not nearly enough. I find are testing record. Nothing to celebrate whatsoever now. The White House has made progress in expanding the country's testing capabilities in recent weeks though public health experts warned that millions more tests per week are needed to safely reopen. The Country Lester. Alright Jeff Bennett to the White House. Thank you and one of the most striking moments from Dr found today was during an exchange about kids and the risk of corona virus it comes as NBC News has learned the CDC is preparing to issue an alert to doctors nationwide about the signs and symptoms of that mystery. Illness believed linked to Cova. Nineteen with more. Here's Kristen Dahlgren. Today in Washington a tense exchange over kids and covert and what it means schools. Consider reopening much as I respect you doctor Pal. I don't think you're the end hall. I don't think you're the one person I guess to make a decision whether it's a huge mistake if we don't open the schools in the fall. I think we'd better be careful if we are not cavalier in thinking that children are completely uneven the deleterious effects but I am very careful and hopefully humble and knowing that I don't know everything about this disease the nation's top infectious disease doc pointing to the new inflammatory disease that appears to be impacting small but growing number of children today spokesperson for the CDC saying it's preparing a nationwide alert to help track pediatric multi-system Inflammatory Syndrome. Symptoms can include prolonged fever rash abdominal pain and the inflammation can attack organs like the heart or kidneys. At least three children died in cases now suspected in at least fourteen states New York now has one hundred cases it's probably in other states And probably hasn't been diagnosed yet in other states because again these children don't present the usual Kovic symptoms. Doctors say the syndrome appears to be a delayed inflammatory response to the virus. It's severe. It is the very rapidly in these children so they can go from having fevers to suddenly deteriorating over a short period of time fortunately their treatment that seemed to be working along today. Josie past fan went home after days in the. Icu recused just to recognize the symptoms. Get your child there so that they can get the treatment and new evidence today. Even kids without the inflammatory syndrome can get sicker with Cova. Nineteen than I thought. A new study from children's national found of one hundred seventy seven kids who tested positive one in four required hospitalization. Nearly forty percent of those had no underlying condition overall children are a fraction of those most seriously impacted by Cova but tonight growing evidence against the Assumption. They are completely safe.

"Them Tom. Yeah I mean the The kind of regular teaching for example the class four is a polite shall we in a translucent or semi translucent resin and then which has to be thin endpoint one point three millimetres people struggle with that. Yeah that's tough. Yeah and to be honest you show you show thing years out even when with with a bird. Yeah exactly with with some products. I I struggle with that myself. And then we then we layer a- denting layer which is no pay can the function of that is to block light transmission. So you don't get graying and also also also to hide the margin and then over the top and that has to be a certain thickness and then over the top of that goes a kind of chromatic lab which is V. to laugh. Ah and then we build in all the sisal effects which is another two three layers and an and before you know it the things Tamil sick which is understandable. If it's not something you do every every day we do what we do. Is We teach class for in two ways. We teach that which is like you behind but we also teach it on on a very simplified level. It's not exactly like Buddy Mapa showed me from cosmic but it's similar in so much as we use an opaque left for the Palatal on the thickness is half the buckling thickness. Okay most dentists can kind of get that off thickness and then you just slap over some universal Literally slap over some universal which is a vita shade composite slightly more translucent? And that's half the thickness and you're done and that gives you a level of translucent in on the facial so that the same looks reasonably aesthetic But it also gives you some past the on the Palatal so it doesn't transmit light and so you hide the margin you don't get graying and that's kind of a good solution for regular dentist who just wants to bang stuff out But it and all the all the aesthetic is in the in the finishing in surface texture And that works pretty well in fact in my own office. I do that for Lois I've completely abandoned doing naturally wearing multiple layers flow is unless severely fractured. Because there's just not enough room an an I. Don't you know I don't want to sit for hours and hours trying to finesse Hoffa mill in size large build up it's just ridiculous And we've found it. It's interesting because I commonly Well always asa delegates at the end. Which one did you prefer? And you have a preconceived ideas to which the the delegates will prefer but they were surprised me. Some people like learning experiences switching from the switching to the higher end and understanding how to do that and some people find that really painful and they wanna they wanna do the more basic ones the fact we teach both gives it gives is an opportunity to do both. And that's what I did take away obviously came from a monochromatic. Yeah practicing and so. That doesn't work. We know that. Yeah fills enough. Yeah well you know at the bottom line is you've got somebody with theology carries or fracture and the net result. Is they've got something that they can speak with eight with and looks to some degree to the general public aesthetic. But it's not that aesthetic to us as dentists so you could argue the single shade stroke single. Oh Pass T- Monolithic. If you will resin does work. It's just that we as dentists unhealthy. Yeah it depends on how Fussy Wanna be because I think that you can like you said had a lot of a lot of it comes down to contour and finishing too so you can like basically more than more than Well it's amazing. How how adaptive some mother shades of these materials are to where they could is sure and how much you're replacing? I how much how much of what you're you're doing it at work. Is that stuff on the retail much. How much of his bonding and how much of ceramic? Because you're kind of probably you're in a new you place since Since we've asked you about that because I know you're doing a lot of the removal we've talked about as well so I would say about thirty to forty percent direct That's city forty percent ceramic. And the rest is a bit of Perria surgery in a bit of Attachments removable and reviews and exams. And things on got okay. That's kind of. That's the difference between the ceramic in the in the composite. I do. I do a lot of ceramic. Okay love conventional ceramic. We do some gold Yeah Gold class fours. That's what I really WANNA know. I'd like to say I love to do I. I don't have the patient base to do that but I wouldn't mind doing that. I do I down town. Low Sixty S to late show. Yeah I used I used to do quite a bit of interior here gold. Yes was a blast. I mean nothing to the prep. So it's pretty easy but you know I it's been a while I really did. I had gets historian. Headed girl girl coming by. I mean they would have if I if I knew how I didn't feel compromised. Girl come in so so bad. Because for her birthday she was turning eighteen eighteen. She wanted she wanted to a ladder. onsides wanted to goal. And there's no pathology on the tooth at all I'm not gonna I'm not gonNA cut your tooth down because you have goals golds you know I did. I did a gold veneer was like a minimal. Prep and they nailed it super easy. It was not yet did. Yeah totally did I. I had enough undercover around a little bit in pro but It worked for crying out loud. She would have gone to the mall and got the gold window and yeah and had payroll flash. It's basically a it's real cap. Yeah just put over over and it's bad thank Pretty much yeah actually. Let's accept more poorly fitting access or you'll see people coming in and they're they're real rage in Virginia. I'd I'd seen someone tacking onto. Yeah so I was glad to. At least I think I didn't probably 'cause the imperial problems with that little gold veneer that's A. I've got a long time ago replaced several several of people that have had him well. He's a steady gold with more aesthetic. We're starting now I did. I did a bridge on a guy. It was so funny because we were placing. We're placing an existing lateral inside that had had like a window crown failed. We needed to bridge but he wanted grounded. Failed it exactly so we lost two teeth. He he wanted to look like what he has so I had it was crazy. Porcelain fused to metal bridge where. We're the the central and the and the canine were were porcelain. And then they did a gold pontic but it's better than it was a gold window pond X.'s. Gold and then it had a little hill. Porcelain was crazy and of course the Nike swoosh kind of might as well. But what's really cool. I mean he still has. That bridge looks amazing. Because it's frigging gold is the easiest prep and really. It's it's it's it's pretty easy to make good good. It was a big heavy piece of art way. We put in there but yeah I sense in my denture patient from dental school. I remember I guess our dentists were like two hundred dollars ars or something like that so he was that. Yeah you're finishing it was all worth every penny but we were finishing it up and he was kind a struggling to Um I don't know if I can do the two hundred dollars say finally finally got to it and then Right before we got to the finishing stage and I really really WANNA go through on a goal to playboy money in it. So we've he's eighty-six in the catalog so that gold tooth. The Playboy bunny was seventy five dollars and had no problem with that is that was easy. Decision I'd sleep strategies. Yeah I think that's the lesson to their people pay for what they want and it's exactly that was a member of pride. We did We we did a gold tooth for a guy in the film industry but it was for film and and We went we had to wait around for ages and they were really rude and unpleasant and we ended up pressing it out of a pound coin. uh-huh that's what we did in the end. It didn't stay in his mouth. It was removable but he was just like Oh man. I had a friend that dental school for a week. Uh I had a friend that had a bunch of Diaz big space teeth and at the end of second year when you get all that goal that using the pre clinic you could sell it back leg it was. It was definitely not going to be used in. Someone's mouth you'd bought. It was years so most of a soul the back and of course we lost our asses on that deal and you know we have beer money for a couple nights. Drew waxed up to. It's the best thing waxed up to huge awful gold teeth and he could. He had this. It went right over his teeth because he had these big gaps in his teeth So drew take it out. We go to the bar and he keep it in his mouth and so he'd look neural he could switch it over his tongue and put it and put it and then he'd smile at people crossing room with it was classic. It was so funny it was it was free I if I know him he probably still has those schoolteachers too. That was that was a pretty good party trick. Oh you should put some resin modified.

We will see you there boom so we have a really good episode today particularly proud of this when we We recorded with Dr Adjacent Smithson at the Spear Summit back in September he was actually speaking there. I know we've talked about it but he spoke a couple of different times and To be honest he crushed it there. He was great he. I mean we knew he was really good but was cool. It was really fun to see him lecture in front of all the big spear people in have all all the big spear people. Wow US really good so I was kind of. I was kind of by that you remember the the morning. What was the it was the the Faculty club that he lectured Richard to in like we saw some of the big wigs?

They like why are you here. We're just watching. Can I take your last. Ask for you sir. No I mean. We're there to ride the coattails of a greatness were there. Hello that's the whole. PODCAST is predicated on. I know hemant. You've been listening over the last five years. Hello that's what I have. Yeah sadly yes sadly so. He was really good he. We talked about a lot of stuff but one of the things that got to me was he was talking about how he is. Totally fine with patients is that are demanding. In fact he kind of likes that he likes to be able to step up to like demanding cosmetically and of course he's he's particularly good at that sort of thing he's probably the best in the world but he made a point of saying that but he doesn't want to deal with patients that have demands and he talked about the difference between like a demanding patient or challenging patient someone who has a high standard versus someone who's like making demands of the work I. It was a very interesting Interesting way of putting things I thought it was. It was really good. We talked a lot about aesthetics but we talked a lot what about how he practices and and we talked less about specifics. Talk some clinical less about that and we talk talk more about kind of how his processes when wouldn't have patient comes into his office. It was really. It was really really good. Considering you know of all the dentists that I I would enjoy being like a fly on the wall. I would love to be a fly on his wall to see what it's really like to watch. You know to be him and how his practice actually runs be interesting. I think it's the accents. It is the accidents all about the essence. Everything's all dentistry can go to hell. It's all about the pretty much is pretty much. Yeah mine is yeah. That's that's why that's why people seek you out that accent. Yeah this accent yeah godly. People love this. I've I've had people ask me if I was from Canada. I don't understand where that Canada yeah I would've I would've thought like Alabama or something Alabama. Yeah no I mean the thing is is that you have a slightly southern accent but to someone from Michigan or Minnesota Wisconsin. You probably say. Hey y'all yeah coming around here now exactly exactly see. Basically north of about Ohio. Anyone with the southern accent is Alabama. That's how it works. It probably get someone from Alabama. Anyone north of Ohio might as well be from Canada. Pretty much can't stand him anyway.

You're muted though there you go all right. Are you able to hear me coming in lobby. We can hear you James Okay Great. Okay okay. Yeah guys Dr Jason. I wanted to know I seen a video while back Richard Dawkins interviewing a scientists physicists and he I guess he thought that the scientists was going to side with him that there is no god but this particular physicists he didn't fall for it he he you know they're speaking about the creation of the universe and the physics itself and his name is. Dr Steven Weinberg Weinberg and he said that he doesn't believe that it all came by accident. He said that it's it's too finely tuned that if you just tweak one little thing that everything falls apart and you know. I know I saw that. Darkens was taken aback by this. You could tell he was surprised. and I noticed that the way that ATS tried to get around this now ever since then they're trying to put forth this idea that well okay the reason our our universe is the way it is so finely tuned is because it's one of many universes a multi births and I just wanted to know if you had any response to that and also if you could you had mentioned earlier that the the statement that the universe is thirteen billion years old is is a true statement because you disagree with it. I'm a little confused by that. If you could elaborate on that okay we're really well the design. You change certain parameters. There's some slosh through some leeway on some grammars exchange the strong force too much advantageous to be changed the weak force too much at its decay a almost immediately wjr candidate. Thank you so so the proposal is well. We're we're just the one happened to get rice. There must be an incident number of other universes for south there. I think that's a form of the GAMBLER's fallacy. It'd be kind of comparable to flip flip a coin and it lands ten times in a row then then you say well. How do we account for this. How do we make sense of this unlikely occurrence. Something that we think is now. I think the more logical position would be to examine the coins and see that may maybe it's on both sides. Maybe it maybe somebody has engineered the coins that it will end up. I think the illogic response would be to say okay well. There must be billions of other people also performing this experiment. We just happened in the room that got the right answer so I don't think that's reasonable. I think it's the Policy Allison wrote a thesis. We just happened to be the one where it works. You can apply that recent anything to anything that happens. That is unlikely you know you say. How out of this can you imagine police investigating a crime scene miss how this happened say well. It's a chance we just have to be one of the universe this habit in the end. It was all go home. At the end of scientific inquiry right there multi by its nature is unscientific doesn't make false but it makes us scientific because it cannot be tested principle any other universe would by definition be something that we would not have access to because we only have access to this universe I if you have access to it as part of this university another one so it's it's really very non scientific answer your rational with regard to the age of the universe. I take scripture face. Saudi believe that Genesis History Bucket made everything in six days as ordinary days rotation seats went down by evening morning human beings remain on the sixth day and from this genealogies that you'll have to read for bed son so de Asuncion idiot sound so you can find that it's few thousand years between Adamant Chrysler on four thousand years and Christ's earthly ministry will be about two thousand years ago so you age for the Earth Universe everything about six thousand years camp exactly on but it's certainly gonna be. It's GonNa be millions or billions of years so I take issue with my secular colleagues. One of the reasons they they need two billion years is to get evolution to happen because we all agree that evolution can't happen if this year's arguing planes either but you throw in and billion years that seems to make almost anything. I think that's the the the motivation all right James. You have anything else I I must have misunderstood. I bet she said earlier that it was a that was a statement that it was thirteen billion years old doc. I must have missed missile misheard. I think he's not understanding what you mean. By a true statement false yes I have and I have one more question censure and astrophysicists I personally don't believe I believe it's possible. Maybe there could be life out there in in the universe but not intelligent life that can that can no good from evil bad from wrong like we do because we're made in. God's image so the idea that you know all of these I don't know if you've seen the TIC TAC video from the navy maybe the navy video of them chasing that done an identified flying object but they claim that claims military claims that they've been seeing these things for decades and I just wanted to know what your opinion is with regards to intelligence specifically intelligent life in the university you believe it. It's it it could be possible or or I don't see how it could be especially also with regards to God only becoming Mann mm-hmm paternity so I think there's a lot of problems with that but I just want to get your opinion on that. I think the key issue. I don't think there is intelligent lights. It's out in space intelligent but the problem with having Vulcans Klingons out there as you pointed out not the image God that can't be saved not related to Jesus his. We're related Jesus. We roll of one blood so his his his blood on the cross counts for us. He's our easer. Kinsman Redeemer demory's or relatives that's why saints but Lieutenant Work on luck because he's a Klingon and he can't he's not related to Jesus can't say so. I think it presents huge theological problems. This is much as I like sci-fi and I do like I d like to consider this things but as sci-fi as science fiction universes that were. I don't think there's life out there. A non intelligent life like moss or something like that probably doesn't pose any theological probes we found moss on planet out there but to be honest. I not really expected that because is it just based on not just based on scripture but based on what we've found in science to the the animals for made uh partly for us and plans for made for animals to eat and even these microbes it turns out that that plants we've now found that like the roots of the plants without microbes they will work properly microbes kind of the interface between beat role of minerals in the world of plants might herbs help plastic certain minerals and so on so it seems like everything is part of the balance system that's designed and it's all on earth you know it's something that that that's got designs for for to be inhabited and to be inhabited by us the passage Isaiah Forty by eight on formed the earth to be inhabited. You didn't make it a waste place and a it also it doesn't specifically say not the heavens that does seem to be the application of your special in that. It's designed for life in the rest of the universe is designed to declare. God's glory oriented beautiful not for life in regards to things like you hoes and things like that if people signoff host while by the little little definition is have you seen something of gay. Yes was flying. Yes as an object yet whether he goes. I happen to know that a lot of those is things you know. People say well actually that satellite. We'll look at that. What's that brightly Venus. Most commonly reported the Ovo. Oh by the way is being something about strong. It's comical because Venus is incredibly bright and it's startling for see it over the horizon air when its lowest style. It'll kind of twinkling dancing around because the waiters ask your. I've seen lots of interesting things that have taken place in space. I've Seen Chemical Nicole released experiments that they've done some kind of experiment where they some satellite released the see it was glowing. It was awesome but I don't you know it's not the man made some kind of bandmate experiencing lots of stuff like that satellites people spend a lot of time outside at nights talk about everything but never seen anything that really would support the idea of aliens visiting the Earth. All right well we do. You've one last thing that I'm getting some echo there from getting a little bit echoed. Food Jason on your side get neck of from yeah. Thanks all right so one so Charles for this in God could create the Biblical world with the age of appearance now did WanNa let you we have about five minutes left to address address this because yes he did create Adam and Eve as someone else said you know fully grown but this does become a problem when it comes to starlight issues especially but One lady just that comment that God could have created the world with appearance of age yeah. This is a nuanced issue and I ah I probably agree with the sentiment of person opposed to matter but I wouldn't say it that way because technically appeared the the term appearance of age is certification fallacy because age is not something you can see age is a concept of history now and so when you say well. This rock looks older. The Rock looks you was was an old rock. Look like a young rock looks like rocks Ross. Now we use that term politically people would say Keith Boyer. Oh yeah this person looks. He looks young for his age. People say that we're speaking not literally because what we really mean you can't see someone's age. It's not like they have their age posted on for it and you can see what we what we can see our certain physical features that we associate with aging gray hair weicker wrinkles liver spots when have you and we say on normally people get characteristic when they're such an age so we see that I look such and such an age but that is a Samoan literal statement and if you think about it it wouldn't make sense to apply that kind of language to the earth because when we say personal certain age we're saying that person has certain and seizures that people typically get when they're that age. That's what we're really saying. They resemble all the other people that are kind of around that age but when you talk about the universe say how old does the universe look. Are you comparing with all the other universes and how they aged so we've only got the one heater so it looks the way that it looks. It doesn't really have an appearance terrence spatial. Here's the way appears enemy when there may I would prefer the universe was made this adult that was made sure it was made functional. Adam and Eve remains adult. She you think of the term fully grown implies the grew they didn't they were created as adults and so I think the universe was made as an adult to to the divers trees..
College Board CEO says SAT adversity score measures "what you've overcome"
"Friday. Joining us now, Dr Jason Nichols is professor in the African American studies department at the university of Maryland in college park Nichols. Good morning. Thank you for joining us. America's morning. Let's talk about what the SAT is doing. They're going to start a signing. An adversity score to every student who takes the SAT. We know there's a fifteen different categories, a you'll never know what your score is. You'll never know the score that they give you only the colleges can see it, and they are not going to disclose. Really how the score is determined. Is this a positive or negative? I think the goal and objective here is a positive one. I think what they wanna do is give students who have faced some adversity. You know, a better opportunity right now, as we've seen the wealthy weather by Hooker by crook. They seem to get ahead and get more opportunities as far as higher education, which creates more equities in our society. However, I don't think that this is the best way to go about it. So in that sense, it's a negative. I think that the SAT's aren't objective measure. They're not even a good measure. I'm not even sure that we should even have SAT's, particularly the verbal section which really just measures how many words, you know, which has nothing to do with intelligence doesn't show your ability, your drive your motivation. So I'm not sure that the SAT's are a badger that we should go by anyway at higher education. What I find interesting about what you just said, though, doesn't the word section. We just had this conversation here on our premium meeting, because when I was a kid, we had the word of the day in the kitchen for whoever which ever one of us was studying for the SAT is the word of the day in the meeting, because there are a lot of words we didn't know, but doesn't that show a student's ability to study and to learn because when you go into college, the course loads really hard, you're going to be coming across things that you never used before chemistry physics, all types of things. And it kind of projects your ability to be able to hang with the course curriculum. So I would disagree. I mean, there are a lot of studies that show that the words that you use particular your, your vocabulary isn't really a measure of anything other than the words, you've been exposed to. So if you are in a community, where people choose more words than you're exposed to, to more to a larger vocabulary than you're gonna no more words, it doesn't necessarily mean that you're more intelligent. If you look at a lot of people, you know, I was joking about this, the other day, you look at the people on television, they use a lot of fancy words, a lot of times to say not a whole lot. So I don't think it's necessarily a good measure of anything. I think you know, the math you can make an argument there. You know, mass is inductive and deductive reasoning and things like that. But the verbal section really doesn't measure a whole lot. I think if we really want to see what students are going to really. Which students are going, make the, the effort to be successful at higher education. We should look at, you know, things like essays and recommendations and extracurriculars, and all those other measures that people take into account and higher education. I you know, one of the things I mean, this, this story is super interesting for a bunch of reasons, but one is super it's very obvious what's happening here. The, the SAT board is trying to come up with a way to assess for race without actually acknowledging race. I mean, that was set in the Wall Street Journal piece to buy one of the experts that they quoted on this subject, and as people are getting into school. The, the thing that I think, drives, a lot of people crazy is that students are assessed on immutable, characteristics, things that have nothing to do with academic achievement and then put into institutions that are dedicated to academic achievement. So the worrying thing here is professor that we're not concentrated enough on outcomes, and instead are concentrated too much sort of fashion. Political statements at our at our institutions of higher learning. Yeah. I would I would disagree again Vince again to wording. I know what you say that it's about race, but there are lots of you know, there are certainly more poor white children in this country than there are black. You know, there's certainly a lot of working class Asian American children. I think this is more about the diversity that you faced sure there, people who come from, you know, certain communities, that have violence and things like that. But this is, you know, there's a I think fifteen different categories, right? Professor measures. And, and I, I think we're in agreement that this isn't the best way to go about it. It sure but I, I don't think this is this is necessarily poxy. For racism, matter of fact, it's trying to look at adversity by taking race out of it now, but as you know, if you look at the data said this, this is this is sort of a specific Enron around using the word race but still assessing for it. So, for instance, a one the guy I quoted Anthony carnival as the. Rector of Georgetown University center on education and the workforce. He's quoted by the Wall Street Journal is saying quote the purpose is to get to race without using race. I know that's a point you disagree with. But when we look at the actual data that they're using one of the things they do is single parent households. That's a really clear delineation, if you look at that the lowest category in America by race for people who have single parent households are Asians. And what is the big controversy Asian students at Harvard? What this means is they're going to figure out a way to make sure that fewer Asian students in the end go to Harvard, which was Harvard goal in the first place right now. Again, I, I completely disagree and, and, you know, we could go on and on about the, the Harvard, you know, case where a matter of fact, you know, I think it was twenty percent of their incoming class was Asian and Asian American only five percent of the population. So there's still four times over represented at Harvard. What a problem. They're trying to do. No, I don't have a problem with that. I think if the as found that way, but it's certainly not that they're being oppressed or they're being kept out and Harvard wants to stop them, though. I mean, meaning Harvard wants to suppress the amount of Asians that come into the school because they believe that there are over represented, and, and the point, I think, a lot of people say, well, if they get in on the merits, why not admit them, because it's about educational standards. Not right. My, my challenge to it all is what we say, our marriage our marriage, particularly with or talking about the SAT. I think that that's not really a good measure of a whole lot. So, you know, I think that we certainly need to overall how people get into higher education scene, of course with the scandal, coming forward that people have been cheating, the system for a long time, particularly wealthy kids. And this is, you know, people that come from wealthy families. You know, if you talk about Harvard, you know, of course, Jared Kushner father makes a five million dollar you know, you know, investment into Harvard gives you know, for building or whatever, and all of a sudden, Jared Kushner, who was high school teachers all said that he didn't deserve to get in say they were better students that got deny all of a sudden he gets entrance into Harvard. Well, there's no question. No question. There's a there's a privilege structure. We've got. Yeah. Vince is point. There's a privilege structure, but I also think that, that is not the majority of people whose father donates enough money to build a building is a very small percentage of kids who applied to call it the way, I'm willing to submit to auditing that to everything about, like legacy entries and all that stuff. I'm that's that's worthy of looking at I think, coming up with a system that focuses less on educational merit and more on other things, doesn't improve school. That's all well, thank you so much again, you know, I know a lot of people who are conservative, you know, they rail against giving people opportunities, you know, and that's what any of these programs even if you go back to affirmative action, it's about giving opportunities and I always tell them I conserve friend, all your favorite black conservative. You would not have them if it wants for these programs that opened doors for people, so, you wouldn't have Ben Carson, if there were no affirmative action would have no Clarence Thomas. If, if there were no affirmative action I am willing to bet that, that Dr Carson would probably disagree with. You on that. But we got we're we're we're not at time. But thank you so much. We have to continue this on another day. Carson says affirmative action hearts African-Americans says him. But anyway, thank you. Thank you. Dr Jason Nichols. We could go on and on. Thank you so much. Really appreciate your time, have a

"Election is ridiculous with your mayo clinic radio health minute i'm vivian williams chronic pain chances are you either have it or you know someone who does so how is chronic pain defined the most common milestones if you will would be three or six months of chronic unrelenting pain for the majority of that time span pain specialist dr jason eldridge says most people are referred from their primary care physician and it's often the same complaint i think back pain by far is the single most common entity for the chronic pain patients we see treatment options are wide ranging and while surgery may be an effective option for some we try to proceed with the less aggressive options i because the reality is most people with pain.
