"Are a range of impacts that occurred. Dr Mark Brown from the University of New South Wild School of Biological Death and Environmental Sciences from the top end to Tagi Country Y on ABC radio. Lot of started to say the first new season. Oranges and mandarins arrived in shops recently, but the prices on that fruit could be going up. Despite the recruitment of workers from the Pacific Islands. Citrus workers say they are still facing a significant labor shortfall on battling the high costs of quarantining workers. CEO of Citizen Australia Nathan Hancock. Says he's expecting a challenging and prolonged harvest season. The situation is is, as we predicted there are a shortage of pictures available shortage of workers available in the river land and across Australia in general, and as we get into the main harvest, that's only you're going going to get worse. Earlier in March, he called for state governments to up their kept on hotel quarantine. What happened since then? And how many workers from the Pacific Islands? I Actually in the country. So far, the number of Pacific Island workers across Australia is close to 3000, now remembering that a lot of those don't go into meat works, and we're really focused on what's happening in horticulture and in for my industry, particularly in Citrus. The numbers are increasing in Citrus, which is great to say on. I think we have to work with what we've got. So firstly, we appreciate what each of the state governments has done so far in order to get a quarantine pathway. But we would reiterate a position that the simplest thing that we could do is to make some purposely put aside Hotel quarantine to make it more effective and efficient for grows to move people in and out to the growing regions how many more workers are needed? But boy still think there's gonna be a shortfall. Now, as we go into winter on this winter crops being picked all over the country with vegetables and Another fruit crops and Citrus itself draws down a lot of workers, and I think that in this region, you know it's close to probably 2.5 to 3000 workers out there picking fruit per day in the heart of harvest, and that is really going to draw down on the numbers of available workers here. There's not enough scheduled to come in with a seasonal worker program as it currently used, and there's certainly not enough working holiday makers or students around Tol make up the shortfall. What will that mean for Citrus growers here individual end. Are you confident that all the crop will be picked? What we expect to see is that will be a very slow harvest. Well, I think the crop will largely get picked. But it will mean that it's a very, very slow long season, and that's can be difficult to manage. There will be certain varieties that will lose shelf life as they sit on the tree, and I'll just have to be abandoned. But really, what will happen is the processes will all slow down. Some people think that maybe not too bad a thing because Is this a lot of unreliability in the shipping at the moment and getting containers, But I think at the end of the day, our business is run on being efficient and this major inefficiency and getting the harvest picks very slowly means that the packing sheds operate very slowly. Things of the containers get feel very slowly. I just think it's an issue we could have avoided by having more people available more quickly. What effect will that also have for the quints Human Daddy's getting death Citrus fruit? Off the supermarket shelf will day be likely to experience actually an increase in price. That's a potential scenario, I would say when we've got a slow harvest, it means that the amount of fruit available to go to the different markets will be less as well when and when we have Ah, Situation that supplies short that can drive prices up, so it's not inconceivable that we would see some prices increase. There's more costs this year for those that are using the seasonal workers program. But even those that aren't getting challenged by the available workers for increasing wages are pushed to beam or paper the hours well, these real costs that have to be passed on, and there's a potential this year that we will see increases in prices to cover girls cost. It's not price gouging or anything like that. It's simply things have become more expensive. Have to do imports more expensive. You know things like diesel things like materials that we're using in a packing sheds the ad campaign fertilize that we use all those things have gone up in price call locally, referred to as a covert text and simply, we rely on other countries for a lot of that production of those materials, and they will put their prices up. And unfortunately, the growers the one at the end of the line that either has to absorb those costs or find a way to pass them on, and I think we will probably see a case that does get passed on this year. CR of Citrus Australia. Nathan Hancock, speaking to Jessica Schwimmer. And staying on food prices. Have you become used to eating crayfish at a cheaper price since the Chinese bands of the seafood Well, you might now have to stop paying a bit extra. Southern Rock loves the beach process. Which of the prices paid Two fishermen by processes are the highest They've bean since China banned Australian exports. Professor Andrew Ferguson says fishermen are currently earning above the $50 a kilo mark, and he told Bridget Herman that title local supplies is one of the things driving the price up. Other countries like the Zeeland particular for the export market. There's not just in the break to starting to come back again now. Yes, it's better 50 mid fifties thereabouts. I think at the moment, so it's sort of a bit of a high point. And that has been over the last few months anyway. That's for sure. How high is this compared to since China blocked Australia from trade Oh, certainly not to that level. I think of that time was more up around $200 a kilo base price, But I still still out. We're not where a lot of people would like to see it. Sure. Is this the highest it's been since then. Yes. Yes, it is. It is so hard Something since oh, end of October last year, I guess. And you said it was sort of to do with the supply that's available. How much quite has been caught here in the southern zone. Yeah, it was part of the problem or suppose everyone's finishing up. There's not many fishing Andre is the end of the season and yes, just sold supply and demand so much support for the marketplace across the markets. We've got left, so it's actually Yeah. In some reports, some wise that not if we're was everyone was fishing. I don't think it would be. That would be the assignment for sure. What does that mean for consumer prices having this little rise? Well, I think we probably we've got what we got to food mothers by the come. Well, I guess is maybe we'll see what we're gonna was. What the what The market will be like in the local. But I have to be opportunity. Tilapia cook lobsters, but there's a lot of increasing orbit to where we sort of Easter time and so forth. What would the prices around Easter time? And where do you think they'll be sitting now? Oh, I think the Easter price was around the system tries, but something was selling for it that Easter. I've reached the court. No, we've got some well. Some of the stores might still have some left for that might be so walking in the same story carries speak for them, but the opportunity to buy a cook lobsters he is always there. If he sees the Marcus. It's stopped up for the winter. But you know, it's possibly a slower burn. That was, it is what it usually is at Christmas time that Do you expect these higher beach prices Tol hold on until the end of the fishing season..

"Simply applied. Mark McKenzie, who was CR Australasian Convenience and Marketers Association, and he was speaking there with John Daly. What's on your dinner plate. Country. Why the politics of food and funny? McNaughton here with you today on the program. Last vacation off the planet is the term coined for what's happening around the globe when it comes to micro plastic pollution. A new study of airborne plastic particles by the National Academy of Scientists off the United States says plastic pollution is one of the most pressing environmental issues off the 21st century. The study found billions of tons of discarded plastic is being broken down into micro plastics and then thrown back into the air over farmlands by road traffic and wins. Dr. Mark Brown, from the University of New South Wales School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences, says there's growing evidence plastic is ending up in our diets, including inmate We've been looking at the source of faiths and impacts off tiny particles of plastic. Since about 2000 and four Mrs recent article that's come out that's collected some articles in atmospheric deposition traps. And then combine that was existing data was modeling to try to estimate potential sources on bats. Really, because people are concerned about Where this share fast volume of plastics rashly going. Are they going to particular parts of the environments are there accumulating in organisms and today cause organisms or us any impact? So just take a step back here. Dr Brown. What are micro plastics for people that maybe aren't sure so micro plastics, simply micrometer sized particles of plastic? So when plastics breakdown on when they're emitted Governments or from cleaning products. They can contain these tiny particles on the reason we're worried about them is a small particle gets. On the more places you can get into. It starts getting into organisms. Macon, stop causing problems. Dr. Brown, You're fading, studying marker plastic for many years now happy. Have a problem Is it for agriculture and I are you finding micro plastics on agricultural fields. We've begun work looking at agricultural fields. We suggested back in 2011. This would be a useful place to start on day. We've only just been able to get Access to those places together to cut the samples. We haven't processed their samples yet, so I couldn't really comment, so there's been multiple studies in the past about Walker Plastics potentially big in the drinks that we consume and also some of the things that we ate, is very concerned that some of you say mate or poultry products or fish may have Walker Plastics in their flesh. Yes, I raise a legitimate concern about that, Andre. Certainly we do find those particles there. Issue really is when you're when you're dealing with the small particles in this. Most of them are things like clothing fibers. Let's be really careful about how you do that work, so unless you have things like which is called blank samples Let's go through. The entire process is well as your environmental samples. If you don't collect those types of blank samples, you can't determine whether or not the particles you're finding in. The samples have actually come. From the need for the poultry or that Away the water or the drinks that you sound what? As opposed to the actual procedures it be used to sample my your clothing and things. We need to be really careful about that. Those types of studies around me, just being doesn't to be done with. We've been calling for those types of studies, since 2011 and government industry been really slow to respond, so Way assigned just can only do that type of research when we're given access to those environments to sample and also given the resources to be able to do the appropriate work. Away the time the amount of plastic that we use in the environment is increasing. We're seeing a lot of people suggesting that we should go to natural alternatives like plant based fibers or more face by this close and similar things. Experience for you know, cleaning products where they're suggesting shells of organisms or they're suggesting bits of sand and another types of materials. Issue there is that some of those natural particles could cause problems, too. So What we need is a comprehensive scientific framework actually evaluates what the different options are on determines how they reduce emissions and how they reduce impact, A saying industry and government of being incredibly slow Do that and all the time we're scientists being asked one of the ways to reduce it. We can't provide that information. If the scientific work isn't funded, as you just mentioned this. There is a lack of of information here, but What potential health effects can why her plastics caused to humans and also to livestock micro plastics. They can cause inflammation caused fibrosis, which is scar tissue, their contracts for chemicals into organisms, which can reduce their ability to withstand sort of infections. Some of them, of course. Changes in the assemblages of organisms, side mixtures of animals and plants that you find so there are a range of impacts that occurred.

in just a second I do want to let everyone know that in the past of course we've had our at men's health seminar every year around father's day unfortunately due to the corona virus a pandemic we will not be having at this year obviously however to continue in the spirit and why you and we want to continue to keep things going we are going to have our men's health lecture series online in a weapon are and so the first one will be in June on June fourth at seven to eight o'clock PM it's easy to register we'll send you the link so you can get on to the live web in our which I will be doing the first one will be on updates in prostate cancer some of the advances in strategies for imaging techniques and some of the new medications and the way that we're managing patients here at NYU Winthrop so the well you need to do is send us an email and then we'll send you the link the email is easy men's health at NYU Langone dot org the email again is men's health at NYU Langone at dot org we'll send you the link and then you can come on live with a weapon are and also give me a chance to answer questions so I think it'll be wonderful and then after that we'll continue with other lectures every month regarding some aspect of men's health with a beep bone health cardiac health or nutrition so I think it's going to be a wonderful way to continue on in the spirit of educating L. all of you about men's health and in that light we are very fortunate to have this morning at Dr mark brown Steen a market is an MD PhD Dr Bron Steen is the assistant professor of medicine in the division of oncology hematology and member of the Perlmutter cancer center and he treats so many people out here on NY on Long Island NY you Winthrop and he specializes in blood disorders he hematologist oncologist and sees a variety of different patients have would that have cancer as well as non cancer blood disorders including things like bleeding and clotting and some of the things that we're going to talk about and getting into him this morning in with him this morning about this he's also the co director of the hematology curriculum for the students here at the NYU Long Island school of medicine has done a lot of research on blood cancers myeloma and helping to division of medical oncology do research around the area of cove it nineteen good morning and doctor brown steam mark how are you this morning good morning to catch thanks for having me it's a great pleasure thank you for getting up in educating us and where I've been very interested to that to understand how you've been doing that I know that your particular practice has been opened the entire time your office in the infusion center here despite the pandemic so tell us how that's been going that's right there to catch you know cancer doesn't go away even during a pandemic and we've we've been open the whole time including most of our services from your chemotherapy to radiation and other modalities for years so where things are are looking encouraging admission to the hospital for over nineteen are going down and we're starting to change our units back to where they were originally purposed for for things like inventory surgery and we're optimistic that you know we as new Yorkers have in a curve so to speak by social distancing and NYU Langone in general has been very well prepared for that was able to increase our capacity particularly for intensive care patients in order to fight that but I think we've we've done well it's been incredible what we've done at the hospital right now I mean in terms of the huge tent that we had had outside in the icy use that we made in the infrastructure that we had to prepare for for all of the the patients that we had it was it was rather remarkable wasn't it it's unprecedented I think it will help us in the future to prepare for other potential disasters and and you know anywhere you like go and has had a history of of dealing with these sorts of things from nine eleven to hurricane sandy and I think we've already had a history of being prepared as well and this will prepare Stephen Moore for the future well I wanna I wanna thank you for staying open and and taking care of cancer patients of course so many patients with cancer became extremely nervous and anxious there already are nervous and anxious because you have cancer and then the question is is the doctor going to be open are they going to be able to take care of me on my gonna get my tests my treatment and and then again am I going to be safe so so tell us about that would you know how old you are how is your you know practice been able to stay open and keep you know cancer patients safe especially cancer patients who may be you know somewhat immune suppressed and are very concerned about all of this sure that's a great question you know and where are you has been a wonderful job of keeping not only patients but also staff they've been our our focus is always on patient safety and I should emphasize that no one should go away essential care specially for cancer because of concerns of safety in any office or in the hospital we've done a number of of things to ensure patient safety one one of which is screening all our patients at the doors or any fevers and doing a series of questions to try to minimize the risk that they could have been exposed or are currently infected we also and this is been been difficult but we've we've not admitted visitors unless medically necessary just to limit the number of people coming into our our offices we just redesigned waiting areas to allow for distancing we've also tested staff and patients and in many instances for active infection with the nasal swab test work for corona virus we've also and it's been pretty remarkable we've transitioned in many instances to telehealth which doctors have been interested in for years I mean just a series of weeks we've gone to thousands of telehealth visits where you have a video console with your physician and the only thing I do want to mention.

"Originally. I wanted to do a segment on recycled plastic clothing. How great ideas that we take plastic waste out of our oceans and the landfills and we turned it into the fabric brick? That produced clothing. Sounds like a no brainer in sustainability. Well researchers have found that well intentions may be doing more harm than good in the plastic recycled clothing arena why because these synthetic fibres release micro fibers when they're washed and they're tiny synthetic threads that are less than one millimeter in size in they may be the biggest source of plastic that are being dumped in the ocean according to Dr Mark Brown who is an ecologist and post post doctoral fellow at the national center of ecological analysis and Synthesis in Santa Barbara California the spin in rinse cycle of of a washing machine sheds a large number of plastic fibres an east fibers can't be filtered for example he estimates that one synthetic synthetic garment can produce one thousand nine hundred Micra fibers per wash with fleeces being the worst so billions of people washing billions of garments billions of times a year. You do the math. Plus there's another aspect of these little micro synthetic fibres they absorb toxins so the synthetic fibres with the toxins will work our work their way up the food chain now. Five gyor's the organization organization that worked on the microbial leads in cosmetics and Other abrasives are now turning their attention to micra fibers. So we'll we'll see if there's GonNa be some solutions for this in the future. Dr Brown has had a hard time getting the textile companies to listen. He's got a project called benign by design Did talk a little bit with autumn. Bloom down the stream to see About her her rash guards that she had out there and we had a very interesting talk about the fabrics that are used in it now. She uses epinal Equiano which is E. ACO NY l.. Essentially that's really recycled nylon. And it's using nylon that's been discarded and repurpose purpose. So it's a it's a really a closed loop system so if you have a chance to research do that pretty interesting. There's also a fabric called reprieve and that's made exclusively out of recycled plastic bottles. So what can we do about these micro fibers. Being released. A A couple of things one of them is you can hand wash certain things in that will cut down on. The number of micro fibers released the other aspect that you can and do. There's something called guppy friend their bags that you can put in the washing machine you can put your garments in those washing In the washing machine and captures the micro fibers and then there's something also called core of. CRA balls there. They go in the wash. You just put them in the washing asking machine and they apparently attract The the microphone. Finally there is something you can do on your washing machine itself. And it's called Lint v Dash to our. It's actually a filter that you can bolt on to the discharge of your washing machine which will capture sure alive. The microphone so again originally started out plastic recycled plastic clothing. Great idea but there's always a different aspects aspects that we have to consider and You know there are solutions out there so just be mindful of them and really look for those products. That may have canola in them because that seems to be a really cool way of recycling nylon and fishing nets.
