"Was great at the time, but it could re freeze tonight on your driveways and also your sidewalks and on and off ramps, bridges, that sort of thing. Low tonight about the upper twenties. If you're north and west of Boston 35 if you right in the city, and if you're on the coast to watch out for a bit of fog now, all this breaks up tomorrow morning, got some sun out there tomorrow breezy, a high near 40 Beautiful day as well. On Wednesday, same of the high just about 40. Lots of sun, Maybe a couple of clouds. It's Christmas Eve. But we have to worry about and it's not a snowstorm we're looking at here. We're talking about a big old rain storm. Lots of heavy rain, moving in later on in the day on Thursday, it's going to be in the fifties. The winds are going to gusto about 50 miles, an hour or more of the coast, and that's going to stick around well through Christmas Eve through the overnight hours and into Christmas days, you've got all the snow pack out there more than a foot in some spots. Just imagine all the melting that's going to be happening so you might want to make sure drains air clear and good to go in that report in that Side of things. Temperatures will be falling on Christmas day. So we will maybe see some re freezing, especially North and West will keep, of course, keeping eye on that storm as it gets closer and let you know all about it as we make our way toward Christmas, right here on wjz. But when it comes to the temperatures where 32 right now in Fall River heading over north of town, you see 31 in Nashua, New Hampshire, 33 in Belcher Town, and right now in Boston at 7 35 a couple of clouds and it's 35 degrees.

I'm Dave Freeman with a perspective now at 8 43. Good morning again. Stephanie Denman says simple compliment or thank you for what you do can't fulfill the need. We all have to be appreciated by others. I used to make fun of my grandpa for writing me. Thank you notes. For my thank you letters. It seems so happy at the time, but I was recently reminded of how meaningful and lasting it is to be thanked. My parents were emptying their storage unit and asked me to claim the boxes that I left with them almost 30 years ago before moving to Europe, I brought them home, opened one of the time capsules and started sifting through old pram portrait's postcards from my travels a nought. A graph photo from Mark Harmon 1986 is sexiest man alive. And faded black and white newspaper clippings from my high school place. Buried amidst my paper memories was a pile of commendation letters I received as a flight attendant in the late 19 eighties. Reading the passenger. Thanks. Still made me feel good all these years later. It felt special knowing that people took the time to write and express their appreciation. When someone says Thank you. It's a Ziff. They see you even for a few minutes before life hustles on. Philosopher William James said after basic needs are met is the need to be appreciated. Hand written letters are rare these days, but even a quick email thanks for a job Well done well for getting in touch makes a difference. Thank you can take other forms like a wave when a driver allows you into their lane, a nod when someone stops to let you cross in the crosswalk and, of course, a smile for essential workers, caregivers and family. And giving thanks is a twofer. Harvard Health writes. That gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. So thanking and being thanked makes you happy. Give a shout out to the universe when you wake up each morning and set a positive tone for your day. It's toxic and tough out there. So let's challenge ourselves to make. Thanks giving a daily ritual. Thank you for listening. And thank you, Grandpa. Wherever you are for thanking me for my thank you. I get it now. With a perspective on Stephanie Long go Denman.

"Some great stories here, Justin like so that fall behind in math, more than any other subject. Math is difficult to do online. When When Grandpa tell me we're gonna do another deep, deep dive into Steve Gregory's out. No realize your story. Listen, I realized how jealous you must have been listening to us. Talk about Steve Gregory's asked And we usually spend that much time talking about your looks on die. Understand how hard that must have been for you, and I just wanted to let you know that I acknowledge it. I see you. You are heard. Thank you. That's all I wanted. What? We can't very well, No. Nothing. I just want to make sure that you got your feelings fluffed by Shannon. That was important. I'm pretty sure that the only reason I do this everybody is that not clear. I'm not. I don't know if I'd made that clear. I should have made that more clear. Okay, but that's not be before we get to the parenting thing on and full violation of all hip, a laws and any Fourth Amendment privacy suggestions. Yeah, You got it. Yeah, I got coated man. What happened when you got it? So like a week before Thanksgiving, my wife came down with, like a little cough. She had a fever. That was maybe at the most 100 like, and she was like, weird, and it's funny. I hope like here's the thing. Anything I say I don't I know that there are people who are dying from this and I don't want to come across as insensitive. I'm just sharing my perspective. As an ignorant dude. So but anyway, we were kind of joking about all. Maybe I got called it, baby. I got closer than I was like, No, you don't and you find, you know, And then she rested over the weekend was fine by Sunday afternoon. No fever. No, nothing like with feeling better went back to work on Monday and Tuesday from home by that. I mean, she's only been working from home this entire time. She's putting in like 10 12 hours because she does home loans and the right below yada yada. Wednesday morning day before Thanksgiving. She wakes up and the cold it kind of comeback and moved into her nose. And she's like I can't smell or taste anything. I think I have it. And I, of course, was the smart husband was like, No, you don't. It's in your nose. You need your nose to taste. You're fine. And then the later that day or Thanksgiving day I think it was. She was like the congestion gone, but I still can't smell or taste of things. And when I breathe in through my nose is like a burning sensation on and that's what I was like. Maybe she got tested with me so She went Friday morning. She was still feeling fine Saturday. We gotta call a thing that she tested positive Sunday morning. I went in because I was out with clients showing houses. And just, you know, give them some peace of mind. And then I tested positive. Thankfully, the clients that I was with both tested negative, and that's because we have to do like protocols with hand sanitizer, gloves and masks and all that stuff, So at least that seems to have worked, But The thing that I thought was really interesting about the whole experience is that she told me on Sunday when I got tested with two things one If I tested negative, she said, I was fine to go back to work. Even though I have a pigeon living in my house carrying the disease. I was like that doesn't seem right on then the other thing that I thought was also interesting was that Planned to wait the two weeks of quarantine and then go back and get retested so that I was clear and what she told me was that once you go the two weeks if you haven't shown any symptoms during the next two weeks, she said, you're no longer infectious. So, essentially, I just walk around with it. But I don't give it to anybody which also seems very hard to swallow. And I don't know if I'm being an ignorant person who should be listening to a doctor. I mean, My boss asked me to go get tested again just so we can have a clear negative test. But, she said there's also a chance like the test again on the 14th of December and have positive have it be positive. That would be kind of on that way on the outside of that incubation period and the positivity period, But I guess it's possible. Yeah, I have no idea like I literally I was talking to Jacob before we came on the air like I have no symptoms, no fatigue. No nothing. No fever. I feel totally fine. And I again much like I sing my praises of my good looks. This is the only moment in my entire life 20. Plus years I've been with my wife that I have some Example of genetic superiority to her. It's superior in every way to me except this guy. Yeah, I love according to Harvard Health, they say most people with the symptoms Will no longer be contagious by 10 days after the symptoms resolved people who test positive but never developed the symptoms over the following 10 days after testing are probably no longer contagious. Said. There are documented exceptions, but that seems to be the case. Yeah, she also which I think speaks to my overall physique and good looks, She said that athletes who have experienced this had thought they just had allergies like it just flowed through them. I haven't even experienced allergies. I just feel like her than the athletes, right? Yeah. Yeah, It's like it's like me than Cam Newton. You know something wrong there in the looks department, too. I think we've got similar smiles, not fashion, You know, that's just what I've heard. Not fashion. Uh, he's a little bit more risque. I'm more traditional like I like a cargo short. I think that's my Boys, But, you know, I would like to see your cargo short Fez combo because I think that would be it would be pretty groundbreaking. Can you stick around Because we'll get into this, the subject about students falling behind in math. Yeah, of course. Okay. And more health stuff to Gary and Shannon will continue. I feel like I just got it from Justin Justin Warship host of the death part. You got to stop. Did you feel that way to know? Justin Washroom, host of the dad podcast again when we return Danny Max as an update from the newsroom. Britain has become the first.

"There were you stopped talking to China. So by the end of it, four, hundred thirteen, and then get the right number one, thousand, three, hundred, ninety, six, skin tears were recorded over the period the happened on four hundred, twenty, four residents over the months dot com, any skinned hairs happened. Based on their testing of the skin and stuff. But what they found was that apple applying moisturizer twice daily reduce the incidence of skin tears by almost fifty percent. so most of those skins tears like twice as many were happening and people who just stuck to their regular regiment. So this is very much talking about moisturizer as an actual effective thing for something that is dangerous like that's interesting I've never. Maybe, not as dangerous for the quote, unquote average person still relevant to know especially as we all age especially when you're students up for me in the winter I, really I know some people who wash their hands a lot especially with corona virus, but people have compulsive. anheuser. In their hands and if your hands are bleeding cracking I sure this is a really important thing that you can be doing is moisturizing your skin because basically all it's doing. Well, I was reading this. It was like all face creams moisturizers do this to the same extent like there's not necessarily one kind that's better than the other the really all just trying to hold water your skin there most face creams and moisturizers. The main ingredient is water and they're mixed with oils, different kinds either lock it in because if you just push water on your face, it just falls off. So they're either bringing water to your skin and holding it on so that it gets plump in Nice or they're locking the oils are locking the water that's already there in so it doesn't evaporate off but yeah, for the for the general population. If you have dry skin on your face or body definitely moisturizer is an effective way to reduce that. Wow. Okay. I didn't know that people just use to use vaseline and then the reason they stopped doing it and it was a really really effective but it just makes you really greasy and now that Kinda like. Kale to look like do we? Just, go back to rubbing vastly some probably do may isn't there a really funny yama video where he just like covers he's like, oh, he's doing a. Smaller that. Face. I it's not that you can't use vaseline. Now people might be like clogging pores I. Don't know if that's true or not. I haven't looked into but the studies in the. Sort of like I was reading a Harvard health article about this was saying that was perfectly effective way and it just makes your skin really greasy which people Mike Wow. Okay. So If you want to take away our skincare routine for today moisturizer still in got it moisturizes especially if you have dry skin, it's helping to keep the like moisture pump is to your face. Another thing in this book was saying is that Yeah, a lot of the time when people apply things that have college in them, even though the college isn't helping with your girls, the moisturizing properties of that stream are going to make when you look in the mirror yourself look. Face masks and stuff. Even if they're saying Collagen improving wrinkles, maybe it's not going to do that but it's still moisturizing your face what I it's not. It's not only trying to do that. Almost every product is a moisturizer and that's also a fun part. I think about if I had a skin an intense concurring with maybe just be that applying the things looking and be like Oh I feel moisture is da i. also WanNa say though. Why are we going to be so scared of wrinkles. Well that's a really interesting. Aspect of is there their. Impact to like a health impact or is it purely aesthetic to quote unquote not like old? Quote Unquote. I mean this is a deeper conversation. I think it has a lot more to do with our, Western. Okay. Let's let's frame this as I can only speak to the culture that live in which is very American and we live in North America were Canadian inundated with American culture. Is probably very similar in Britain and other like anglo-saxon places that I'm trying to think of colonize places but there's an obsession with youth there really even what we were talking about. Earlier with like maybe we were talking about earlier but like music like. Even just like who is. Like it's very challenging as people age to still sort of be like glorified and had had held up on a pedestal. So there's a cultural thing there where we are obsessed with Youth and the law that I could maybe be linked to like quote unquote I just did it beauty like we are thinking that young people are beautiful which is in fact, in my opinion not true. There's so many fucking. Well, there's ball I mean. Beautiful aspects of being wise being old and it's like as I age I am like it's interesting how you maintain I feel like being attracted to people your same agent older just like when I look around I trying to three year old of my. Looks like rebate. Child. No I know you're saying also death like I also think. It's wrinkles are A. You know in a brilliant example of the passing of time. The fact that your physical being is now aging so I think when people aren't wanting wrinkles if they really stop and think about it I'm like in my head, it's maybe linked to those two things like on one hand is just being like I think that younger people are more attractive and I think. We are obsessed and told that young people without wrinkles are beautiful and I think that they might look at their goals and take all my God I'm one step closer you of the inevitability of death and life. Maybe. That's what I, think what do you think you? You ask the question like I think you're totally right. I think that is like most society I would imagine most societies even if other cultures appreciate and respect their elders more I think there's always in every culture this sort of like glorification of youth and beauty which in some ways, it's healthy. Okay. Of course, we want to celebrate young people because even their minds are so unique and interesting all those things. So I think it's more than just the anti death or the anti-ageing. There's something beautiful about like what young people are. But there is something to be said about getting your. Sort of like emotional intellectual head and aging, and learning to love the concept of that would make you save a bunch of money on skin creams. You know what I mean like bake you sort of yacht. Maybe spend on like Bo talks are these things and I think a lot of people do participate in that culture for a variety of reasons that aren't necessarily like it doesn't mean that you're like mentally unhealthy at all but I just like I think. We all fall for it. I fall for it to I'm still like look at some of my age and if they talk about I, don't know so much. But if they talk with how they don't ever goals or how they got both talks that might be like, wow cool. Yeah you actually don't that's amazing like I mean that's amazing as like. Well, why am I saying that but? I do think that there is probably like a good point to stop and think like, why am I doing this not to fix anything but just to think about it estimated to gate it I guess I, think for me something going forward that I could get into is I do like the idea of rituals I think rituals can be really important if you actually take the time to. have slow you down.

When you listen to the franking, Boyer show, you just never know what's going to happen. So listen for yourself. Here is Frankie boy and welcome it is cannabis talk, ages E and educational Odyssey. Joining us today is a serial entrepreneur Jeffrey Zucker and his Topics go from Really straight. Film design technology hospitality. And cannabis. Very, very wide collection of interest. Jeffrey, Welcome to the program. It's a real pleasure to have you with us right here on account of his stark, A dizzy and educational odyssey with Frankie Boyer. I am happy to be here. Appreciate the invite. So, Geoffrey, What's it like for you as an entrepreneur getting getting ready to deal with the fact that Today. Many states had cannabis as an essential during covert and still is an essential business for many people, especially people with ongoing illnesses. But what's it like for you? Should be an entrepreneur during this time of covert Yeah, I mean, it's definitely interesting. It's a learning experience. You never obviously an unprecedented situations. You know when it comes to canvas specifically, I think it's been great to see that certain states have been acknowledging that it's crucial for patients but the same time you know there's still a schedule one substance They're still people. In jail for this plant. And so that's something that I think is crucial for cannabis companies to always be a part of his advocacy and trying, Tio not only changed the laws but also get people out of jail and expunge records. Absolutely. There was a breaking news story today of that. We need to talk about and it's about marijuana and heart disease and what you need to know and one of the news stations that was covering the story this morning and we'll talk about the study in just a moment. It just came out. Lots of questions, lots and lots of questions, but one of the reporters said, because it's because it's such a It's so difficult to research. Category one drug will we really? Ever find out what the rial Story is and I think that's a fair question to ask because it's still illegal in this country. Yes, I agree with you. I mean, I think that thean important note to take with any research studies that air coming out of the U. S. Is just that it's Many of the studies are anecdotal or observational, and if they are federally backed studies, then there's only one location from which they can get cannabis and from researchers I've talked to the federal campus is nothing like what you'd actually get on the market and therefore, you know, doesn't really help the studies be accurate. Right, but one of the studies that did come out and we would be remiss if we didn't mention it is from the Harvard Health Publishing Harvard Medical School. We're here in Cambridge. And They say access to To marijuana is growing. But marijuana benefits in his Ricks risks have not been carefully studied, and the one study that they're looking at Is cannabis smoking and heart disease, and I I just want people to know that Cannabis. Marijuana cultivation dates back, they say, 6000 years. And so I mean, this plant has been used for many, many Periods of our our history. Ritually the resin, the actual tinctures the oils. I mean, it's been around for a very, very long time. And we know That for many people, as we've said, it is a lifesaver. It is an absolute lifesaver. And this article that that I have from Harvard actually says that some of the strongest evidence supports the medical used for chronic pain and managing chronic pain and the cannabinoid. Compounds have had tremendous effect in In helping pain, helping with nausea, helping with vomiting, helping with appetite and It makes marijuana a therapeutic option for people who are coping with side effects of chemotherapy and other issues. I mean, that's very exciting to see that Absolutely. I mean, I think that Cannabis is starting to be recognized more and more in the modern era as ah, true medicine and but you know, going back and seeing its history is, you know really important, And I think you know, in terms of this study that came out it's important thing very important for us to note what's being found. But that said, it's also a highlight to show that you know, we need to open up research. Absolutely. I often speak people about You know what this industry need the most. It needs very thorough, extensive research and you know they're certain countries like Israel that are doing some great studies with high quality cannabis, but That's such an important aspect of being able to grow this industry safely in the U. S. Rage. I want to go back to the study because what they're saying about Cardi Cardiovascular health is that people with Establish heart disease. So this is not If you do not have heart disease. This does not relate to you. They're saying people with established heart disease who are under stress. And that developed Could develop chest pain. More quickly if they have been smoking. Then they would have otherwise. And this is because of the complex effects of the cannabinoids have on the cardiovascular system, including raising resting heart rate. Violating blood vessels and making the heart pump parter and researchers suggest that the risk of heart attack is several times higher in the hour after smoking. Cannabis and it would be normally And while it does not, and I want to repeat this, while this does not pose a significant threat to people who have minimal cardiovascular risk, it should be a red flag to anyone with a history of heart disease. And although the evidence is weaker, there is also linked to a higher risk of arterial, You know, strokes immediately following Cannabis use..

"Are your thoughts on the health at every size movement? Do you think that that has like medical validity. So! And, I've written about this actually in the Harvard Health blog on I think it was last year right a lot, so I can't remember exactly when I wrote about it. Let's go is in the last year. I'm one of the key things about health at every size. Is that often I feel as though negate the disease process that is obesity, so there's not an understanding of how the brain is regulating weight, and how that actually pertains poor health outcomes. What we've recently seen Sam with cold nineteen. Is that obesity like was really kind of the key factor that really conferred worse. Health Outcomes at first when the CDC noticed because they. They had not seen this as much in your I'm before you got here to here in the US They're trying to figure out like how. Why is it so different? What is different about this disease here and yes, does you know? Is there a high degree of obesity in in many European countries? Absolutely do we supersede most of them? Absolutely, but what they begin to notice I the CDC, said okay, we'll severe obesity right that'd be greater than forty seem to confer a certain risks, and then they recently within the last week, and a half, or so dropped it to looking at obesity as a whole because what we do, know about obesity. That having ABC itself confers inflammation. Okay, so the body releases inflammatory side kinds. You guys don't have to remember these missing rights I. O One I'll sixteen F Alpha, Cortisol. ETC issued a measure these in patients that have obesity even if they feel like they're healthy. Often what we'll find is that they're elevated will often find also that their insulin fasting insulin levels, which is how we? We control blood sugar are elevated will find all of these things being a major issue, and you can't tell that by just looking at the person now what I can say to you as to answer your question also is that less? I talked about that. Three hundred pound person for example when you look at that three hundred person. Let's say they're my patient, but okay, are they? They not healthy, but which you may not recognize, is that when they first started working with me, they were five hundred fifty pounds, and so when you're comparing them at five hundred fifty to three hundred. They are significantly healthier, but I'm also measuring. What's below the hood? Right? So if you know if your guy watching, it's What's what's actually making that car? Run not just. Just, the external appearance and I'm not going to judge you negatively about how you look externally, but I do have to recognize that the obesity in and of itself promotes were outcomes as we're thinking about fighting off even acute issues such as Covid nineteen. Does that make sense in terms of how I kind of think about it with regards to this health at every size. Recognizing that often, that group doesn't recognize the science behind what we're doing. They like we over package is obesity, but there's a reason why I did three years of study I did three years of study and still didn't learn everything. There is to learn because the brain and the weight regulation that happens within an individual body is so complex. It is more complex than rocket science, because each of US differs unless you're identical twin with someone, the likely hit the their significant variation how you regulate weight is large, even within families and so It's important for us to recognize these things from me to. The approach as A. Goal undergo trial and error in working with persons regardless of what their waste offices. Does that help him? Yeah definitely, so I mean, it seems that I mean even just in the past like ten minutes. You've sort of ships it the way I think about obesity because I think that most people really see it as like a it's something that manifests outwardly, and that sort of like the only reason why it matters other than not really the only reason why it matters like obviously, there's like an idea that it can lead to other complications, but I think that it's not really widely known a recognized that this is actually like a chemical brain function that happens when you do reach a certain. Be I even if the whole BMI system is like you know has. Has, it says pluses, minuses. Absolutely. I think that's huge. Okay absolutely. So what do you think would so in terms of like the the disease versus like the appearance of the person How do we I guess? Get people to see it for what it really is that it's not just like a vanity thing. So I think we have to educate I think that we have to start with physicians. Physicians reportedly educated about obesity disease. If we're poorly educated, we can expect you guys to know what's going on. So I published a study that came out actually in international around the we city at the end of twenty nineteen I looked for the last fifteen years I looked at what are doctors at the medical school level once they get to residency was what there must What are they learning about obesity? And the answer is nothing. so this is the largest disease in the world. Not just in the United States is important for us to recognize that about sixteen percent of the world's population has obesity also and we're learning zero percent it. How can you expect your doctor to treat you if they know nothing? If it's not tested on our examinations, it means is not important, right? We learn about diabetes. We learn about different cancers. We learn about things that are important. But that shift into recognizing that if we treat the obesity, many of the issues that happen and we know about a hundred diseases to be associated with obesity itself I can begin to remove medications that patients were being meeting for other conditions can begin to get rid of their high blood pressure medicines.

Food Safety and Sanitation

"Just keeping people engaged Try and keep your mind engage. We hope people still try and get that workout in at home. Try and eat healthy even though you might WanNa go to the comfort food. And that's why Debbie is here to tell you no don't go for that can't go for the fruits and vegetables But also how to prepare this stuff. So let's jump into it here. In general what do we need to keep in mind regarding just food and illness in general and maybe specifically with this cove in nineteen virus Well there are thinking about your food that they're way more health benefits than there are possible. Risks Associated with consuming. What's available in the stores now? If you think of good helpful quality food that can keep your immune system running optimally because it gives you you know proteins vitamins minerals probiotics by chemicals and those bolster a good defense to infection. I mean specifically you need to try and get vitamins. A the bullet acid. That's B. Vitamin PLUS THE MINERALS IRON SELENIUM ZINC. They're all involved in maintaining a robust commune system. I'd say supplements are a little bit different because I want to focus on food But right now there is kind of this big. You might see some things across the Internet promoting anything to treat or prevent The current cove in nineteen virus. The council for responsible nutrition just as Avoid those because they're they're just not and report him to the FBI. Their money grabs right. Just Yeah Yeah. Yeah absolutely right. Yeah well okay. So That's interesting. So what kind of mostly focused on gets the foods But I with the foods. What kind of foods are going to get you those vitamins? Well anything that you can get fresh produce right now is is wonderful if you look at So dark green leafy you're citrus for vitamin C. You've got your Iron from red meat and dried beans dried fruit Selenium Zinc those are mineral if you can also get from whole grains legumes Vitamin The little tougher There are some mushrooms if they've been exposed to You'd be light and Vitamin E. Get FROM NUTS OF VITAMIN? A precursor Beta carotene. You can get from orange prison and vegetables like butternut squash apricot. Oh of so things that are. Orange are the color orange not just oranges. Literally the that is the root word of if you think of Karachi annoyed and so carol carrot or have the same car you know so. Corrupt Noise are Beta Carotene. And that's great. I love that you mentioned legumes again. I think it's my favorite word and being it's a bean right to type of being Likud. Yeah good also umbrella peanut because technically yeah. I know I call them too. But they're technically elegant though nearly oh very interesting all right that that's an interesting little fun. Fact okay. So yeah so great. Okay so that's kind of where you can get some of those vitamins that you're looking for now and you know we are just talking before we went on the show that it's actually surprising in southern California. There's actually a good amount of fresh fruit and vegetables available like in the Gore stores. I was really surprised. I mean every shelf has cleaned out especially frozen food. But there's I found blueberries blackberries. Think you found you said you found some strawberries and bananas at the store. So it's very possible to get fresh fruit right now. If you go and items that were left you have to get a little creative. Maybe there's a Kohlrabi what do I do with that or you know like okay. There's been turnip but I'm going to basically learn what these are this point. Now it'd be like okay. I guess turn up. I'm going to find out if I like it Okay here's something that's big. I think people might be wondering as well. That may be eat a lot. Should they stop eating out at this point as far? I just WANNA say as far so to today happens to be the day that record and it's march eighteenth so other yesterday the Centers for Disease Control that there is currently no evidence to support transmission of the curve in nineteen virus associated with booth and A. Usda is not aware of any report of any illnesses about food or food packaging so Keeping that in mind that it's not spread through food so restaurants Grocery Deli counters delivery services. There's still taking measures to prevent any kind of Possible If they had a you know an ill Food Service Food Service worker and limiting contact between them and any food being prepared and an consumer like. They always do okay. They always had those kinds of systems in place. I would say that that right now. You Know I. It was a week ago. My kids wanted to go to a very well known buffet style restaurant and I passed that right now but and and those have shut down temporarily and many of my area restaurants there providing mobile ordering and certified pickup service so that contact is limited. And I think that's really good but what people may not be aware of. Is that in the food service industry. In restaurants. There are strict health codes and regulations that restaurants. Follow all the time like and that you might see in the window down the win a right. So they're yeah. They're always trying to address all right now. And that's interesting that there's like the curbside delivery and or or just delivery general and. I think that's kind of important even for how you know. Our economy like to keep some of these smaller food restaurants in business. Like if you do WANNA eat out. Patronize those people and do the curbside delivery. You don't have to go in and in many cases you can't go in now but this is obviously going to affect our economy with a lot of people Being out of work for a while. Anyway you can support. Don't Cook at home so you know. That's a reasonable option as of now as of today At least you know Information I get like from Harvard Health. That says That it's really really unlikely. And the exception to the role Than would be spread through food but it's also wise to discomfiture. Maybe having hot food so things that can be killed rather than going for uncooked food like salad sandwiches right now right. Yeah that makes sense that makes sense now. Is there when it comes to you? Know maybe going grocery shopping is canned food or frozen food safer than fresh right now. Would you say I wouldn't think so? Currently there's like I said there's no evidence of food or packaging being associated with transmission. Oh the the other. I'm GONNA say the other term for this Viruses the stars Kobe. To so in case I I mentioned that instead of my nose. Cova nineteen virus. But that's just another name for it anyway If it can survive on surfaces and objects like other viruses have. I mean every time you come home from the grocery store I always wipe down the top of you know my canned goods. There's Dutton stuff anyway and I wash all my fruits and vegetables. You WanNa do that anyway. It was just. It was just last week that the or this past week that the National Institute of Health Shared Research. The virus can laugh a twenty four hours on cardboard and like two or three days on plastic and seamless steel. So it's a surface. It can be disinfected just like those white And i do that when i bring my stuff. Out of the trunk now And then did you hear that thing. That was my phone. No no that's okay. That's right mean we're going to deal with that stuff. I have a toddler upstairs. That does not want to go down for a NAP right now. So it's all good up my groceries down when I bring them in from my trunk at least packages and the Bacher and stuff like that right now and all the time. Fresh fruit needs to be handled with appropriate hygiene. And always. So if you're doing pressure item Then choose things at this time. You know that. Have minimal handling like a whole apple. A BAG OF BREAD. A whole chicken that you're gonNA roast instead of the things that have. Had you know a lot of preparation into them like a Kim thousand sandwich or those things have already been okay? You know multiple ingredients chopping cut different surfaces and hands. And you know okay okay go for the basic raw ingredients okay and is it and you mentioned kind of washing when you get home you wash your food so is that that's like something critical to keep up at this point. Wash your food that is washable. And then when they cook everything. Fruits and vegetables definitely There are some that you can wash ahead of time as long as they dry but things that hold moisture like berries or mushrooms but you only want to wash those right before you use them so they don't right there and get you know molding and funny So I'm sorry Then what you do need to cook well as always Things that are generally perishable like you know meats and eggs and those things you need to cook to an internal temperature of one hundred and sixty five Fahrenheit just on average. I know some of the ranges. Oh one forty-five to you know when sixty and then of course you need to boil pasta bake potatoes those kinds of things that have to be cooked to be out all right like basically at this point in time like don't start getting interesting with like how you're going to consume a potatoes take a giant bite out of it like maybe cook it. I like. That's probably common sense approaches of how you normally do it but maybe just make sure you on that one. Wash your hands really. Well make sure your surfaces are cleaned then scrub your potato under cold running water and then you can cut chopping and prepare it. You're

"harvard health" Discussed on GSMC Health and Wellness Podcast

"Today. We're going to talk about wine so I know this one is going to be pretty exciting for a lot of y'all out there but if you're like me you've probably heard that wine is really good for you and you might want to know some more about that. I WanNa know more than just. It's good for me I WANNA know how and why so for the most part what I had read before about wine was that it's good for your heart in small amounts so today we're going to delve into that a little bit more. We're GonNa talk about the specific health benefits for it whether it's really good for your heart and also just learning a little bit about wine in general so we're GONNA start out with just talking about some general health benefits so first off. We're going to talk about how drinking wine may support having a longer life span. Wine contains a polyphenol called reservatrol and that is most especially in red wines. So that is a powerful antioxidant that is in grape skin and also in red grape juice. So if you like Muscat grapes. Muscadet wine like I do bring for North Carolina. Then that can be a really great source of reservatrol and these antioxidants. We discussed antioxidants and previous podcast episode. And how they help your body fight free radicals so remember free. Radicals damage ourselves and our organs. Antioxidants help remove those from our bodies so a bunch of different grapes are going to have those particularly red grapes. And the Spanish vogue grape has some of the highest levels of reservatrol. So if you're looking specifically for a heart healthy wine or one this going to help you with those antioxidants than perhaps try a blue wall type of wine. Another one is going to be drinking. Wine keeps our hearts healthy. That is one of the largest claims. I've heard about red wine. So far and cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death for men and women around the globe so according to the World Health Organization. That's still a problem for everyone. More people die from cardiovascular diseases each year than any other disease and it is not just an American issue. It's a global issue so drinking red wine. It's been said to keep our hearts healthy and in our next segment. We're going to discuss that claim via Harvard Health Publishing and their research on it but for right now onto number three another health claim. Is that drinking? Wine can help reduce the risk of heart disease specifically in people who have type two diabetes. So there was a study a few years back that found that moderate red wine consumption and they define moderate as one glass per day in that. Study so take that as you will. It's important though to define these terms as we discussed in the past and different holistic contexts. One person's ten is another person's too so moderate wine consumption is one glass per day in this particular study but it may be used differently in terminology within other studies. So make sure you keep that in mind and see what they actually mean when they say moderate so in this case this particular study said that one glass of wine per day red wine in particular can reduce the risk of heart disease and folks who have type two diabetes remember from our diabetes episode. That type two diabetes is the one that you can develop as time goes on and is generally associated with having trouble with metabolising your glucose your insulin resistance levels so as the sugar levels build up in your bloodstream. There's not enough insulin. To regulate the movement of that sugar into your cells like it should properly do so according to the American Diabetes Association. If you drink red wine or any moderate amount of alcoholic beverage it can lower your blood sugar for up to twenty four hours however folks who have type two diabetes are typically recommended to reduce their alcohol consumption in order to have better control of their blood glucose levels so because of that the American Diabetes Association recommends. Checking your blood sugar before you drink while you're drinking and after you drink to make sure that you're keeping it on a safe level. So folks who have diabetes are able to have some wine as a treat but it's important because everyone is a little bit different to check before during and after to find what your true baseline is for how much wine you can have now. The fourth claim for health benefits is that they have anticancer effects. Line has some anticancer effects. Largely this is associated with antioxidants. We discussed earlier so cancer is the second leading cause of death. Globally cancer is something that occurs in your body when you have uncontrollable cell division. Yourselves are naturally supposed to go through a cycle that includes cell death and that cellular death is called a pop toasties. And if your cells to not die like they're supposed to then they will keep dividing and uncontrolled cell division results. In the creation of tumor cells everyone always thinks of tumors as being naturally cancer as per se and being malignant but they can also be benign and you can have all kinds of different types of tumors that are not necessarily cancerous. It's a little bit more complex but they are you know histology disorders. They histology means that. It's going to be related to the tissue cells and stuff in your body. So you can have noncancerous tumors you can also have cancerous tumors regardless having tumors is not great. You can get complications where they just keep growing even if they're benign. They can cause a lot of problems. Based on their location like growing between your heart and your lungs et Cetera. So in that regard wine can also help you. With having those antioxidants they help prevent cell damage that may lead to the inability of these cells to go into a pop. Tos. There are antioxidants in wine such as reservatrol but also catechin and golic acid which are also claimed to destroy cancer cells and can potentially help prevent cancer by improving the effectiveness of radiation and Chemo treatments. Now in that regard that you can also find these beneficial antioxidants and other foods like Kale or apples tomatoes. You don't have to get them from wine but if you'd like to get them from wine and you don't have any other health issues that would be hindered or made worse by ingesting wine. Perhaps you can just get them from wine. It is up to you and your doctor to make that determination. Lastly number five is bed nutrients in wine can help prevent Alzheimer's disease. So some folks have said that reservatrol in winds can help keep your blood. Vessels Open so not only. Is it just there for the antioxidants to prevent cell damage but also to help prevent some cancers tumors from occurring and also for keeping your blood vessels open so antioxidants like reservatrol can do a lot for us and that keeping open? Your blood vessels is going to keep that oxygen and glucose moving freely to your brain and to your other cells to keep everything functioning as it should however if you have too much alcohol it can have the opposite effect on your blood vessels in your brain so you want to make sure that you keep a good balance in that regard all right. We're going to go a quick break and when we come back. We're going to consult Harvard. Health regarding whether red wine is actually good for your heart. Stay tuned and are you looking to learn more about the latest trends from the fitness world.

When Insurance Won't Cover Drugs, Americans Make 'Tough Choices' About Their Health

"What happens when insurance companies deny coverage for medications? It doesn't just force people to pay for drugs themselves. A survey finds that for almost half of Americans went. When Insurance Denies Payment? They do not get the drugs at all. The poll comes from NPR. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T H Chan School of Public Public Health. NPR's Patty name reports Sahlin. REDUC- is seventy eight on a fixed income. She has severe acid reflux. I have to eat very small all meals and when I eat sometimes it feels like everything's stuck in my chest and I get really bad pain. And I have to throw up reduces retired on medicare she also pays for supplemental insurance policy to cover the cost of drugs but it will only pay for the generic version of her heartburn medication. Her her doctor prescribed the brand name. She says the generic version just doesn't work for her. No it's not as effective now. Definitely not she can't afford the brand name so now she has extremely painful episodes of acid reflux about three times a month. Our poll shows that like Ridolfi. The vast majority pretty of Americans have health insurance that includes prescription drug coverage but one in three say that in the past year insurance. Didn't cover the cost of medication and for themselves or their household members Robert Blend in with the Harvard Chan School directed our poll. So what you see is insurers are not paying for some drugs that physicians are recommending. The patients think they need when that happened. Most of the highest earners paid for the medication themselves but Glendon says is that was not the case for everyone else. A half of the people who are middle class or or moderate income are not getting him because they can't afford to go out and pay for it themselves batum line. He says it's just not fair. This idea that if we save money we all have to make tough choices together. The tough choices really don't affects the most wealthy people in the United States. They just affect people who are middle and lower income and this could leave lower and middle income individuals more vulnerable to disease and other health problems for Sally Rideau see one example is her EPI pen. She's allergic to bees and needs the EPI pen to inject life saving medication in case she gets stung and the last time I was stung. The doctor said each time you get stung can be very serious and it can result in death so he's always carry the EPI pen and in my case. I do a lot of gardening and I'm by myself so just felt safe to have my Epi pen with me just in case but this time when she went to the pharmacy to get the pen prescribed by her doctor she was told her insurance wouldn't cover the cost. It was close to six hundred dollars and I said well how about the generic could I get generic and she said well. That's three ninety eight and I said you're kidding. She said no I said okay then. Just forget it so today when we're dosing gardens. She wears as long sleeves and long pants to try to protect yourself against B.'s. The situation she says it's upsetting. I have three insurances. I'm always pay a lot of copays as I pay a lot for my drugs. It's very frustrating. I think when you have insurance I think you should be able to get the drug. You need one unexpected. Finding from our poll on income inequality is that even people who can afford to cover the cost of their medication. Sometimes don't this is one of the first polls to survey the top one percent percent people earning over five hundred thousand dollars a year and eighteen percent of them chose not to fill prescriptions. When insurance wouldn't cover it? Tina Smith is one of them. She runs a technology consulting firm in Minneapolis last year when her doctor prescribed a medication to treat the skin condition rose Patia. She got a shock. When I went to fill the prescription the cost for the prescription was over six hundred dollars? She says for the past seven years. The medication costs about twenty dollars. So this was a huge increase and Smith decided not to get it because I felt that it was fiscally irresponsible and I have no interest in funding big pharma anymore than I absolutely have to. I feel big farmers than rob in the American people for years and they continued to increase. The cost of prescriptions drug. Drug prices have been escalating. Actually four in a significant way at least the last couple decades Frederica saucy is director of the Consumer Advocacy Group families. USA But in the last five. Or six years it's really hit a crescendo. Not surprisingly the smallest increase were in generic drugs but the adjective small small. He says pretty much ends there. You know an average increase for drugs might be fifteen or sixteen percent annually which is much much faster than our paychecks or inflation inflation. But you could see a doubling or tripling of drug cost year every year depending on the ability of that drug company to have no competition he says healthcare caused swallowing up more and more families discretionary income not only in higher drug prices but also in higher deductibles co pays and cost sharing we. We spoke with representatives of both the pharmaceutical and health insurance industries and they point the finger at each other. Insurers say the financial squeeze Americans are are experiencing is because of high drug prices the drug makers say it's High Insurance and hospital costs whatever. The reason Harvard health economist and primary Care Physician Ben Summers says not getting needed. Medication is not good news. There's more and more evidence that having health insurance really does improve people's health and lives and and medications are one of the key parts of that because it is such a mainstay of how we manage a lot of chronic conditions now says not all medications are equal some of the medications occasions we prescribe are really kind of options to a patient. You say look. This medication may help you feel better while you have this infection or while you are having some heartburn but if view feel fine without it that's okay but how there's a critical cholesterol lowering statins for example or insulin to keep blood sugar under control and and sometimes people won't even notice they're not taking it not all these conditions have symptoms. You can be building up dangerous levels of high blood sugar or cholesterol without noticing. It until it's too late. Sadly summer says he's not surprised by the findings of our poll he says at least a quarter of his patients. Don't get new prescriptions filled. Because they say they just don't have the money.

We spoke with representatives of both the pharmaceutical and health insurance industries and they point the finger at each other.

The reason Harvard health economist and primary Care Physician Ben Summers says not getting needed. Medication is not good news. There's more and more evidence that having health insurance really does improve people's health and lives and and medications are one of the key parts of that because it is such a mainstay of how we manage a lot of chronic conditions now says not all medications are equal some of the medications occasions we prescribe are really kind of options to a patient.

"Feminine mystique. Classic feminist work. It's a very long deep. Lament about how bad women's situation is sort of stepford wives type attack the Prussian of women and their ability to become a full human being. Because they were expected to be wife and mother. So now that they're not expected to be wife and mother outnumber men. Two to one at colleges are involved in the work of their choice. Why they show unhappy? Why do they go on the women's March for nothing? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. That was the most revealing March about the left and women in my lifetime and in your lifetime. The March was about nothing women were angry over zero and the. That plus this book leave me, the believe baby women have to battle, malcontents nature. Just as men have to battle an aggressive nature in the sexual predatory nature. And I looked up every single from Harvard health to whatever women are almost twice as likely to be depressed. And then they give all the reason. Well, they have so much pressure on them. Like men don't have pressure on them and commit suicide at twice the rate. Look, I told you this by the way this like everything else. There's a left right aspect to this. I've always I've always felt that leftism was the was a feminine movement and the mouth contentedness of the left is a is a perfect example. The conservatives is much more masculine movement. You know, what life is tough move on? And on the left. Life is tough. Let's demonstrate life is tough. Let's have the government solve it for me. Big difference. Gotta get to your point. Because we got a lot of Coles. Go ahead. Yeah. Just basically when we talk about words despite people wanna label them that's where we can fall into a trap of misconceptions. Then I hear you guys water not I could journalism, and I just want you to be careful that you had not really seeing things clearly because basically women are taught you can't get into you can't fight. You're gonna do what I say that. Now taught they should get angry and should fight you ever see women on campus. I'm sorry. Correctly. They do not have it. They going up. Why not? Over centuries. They won't even look you in the eye the meal species dominant figure in society, it'll always will be as far as male female. I don't care if you're a mammal bird, whatever still the female who can't just look someone in the I go, I don't agree with you. I don't like ideology, I think we need to change it that would be a better way than marching marching a waste of anything. I mean it just Michigan. It's actually an interesting Cole. Let's go to Mary in Annapolis. Maryland, Hello, Mary of Annapolis. Dennis prager. Hello, Mr. Prager. How are you? I'm well. Thank you. Good. So simply is then I think women complicate things to such an extent that they nit pick everything. Whereas men seem to have a more straightforward approach. It's like that old joke about husband comes home. It's down immediately and the life starts question. Why isn't he talking to that? And go through the whole joke at the end of the chip demand. I just described his time with his wife as well. I had a rotten day at work. But gee, I had I had a lovely time. But my wife kind of thing. So that's what. Point. All right. So you feel it's built in. That's what I'm that's what I'm I'm now starting to think here. They're in Richfield Minnesota. Hello, deb. Then as Prager. Hello, Mr. Prager. Thank you for taking my call. Thank you for calling quickly on your very grateful. Porcelain painting trend in Minnesota. I sent you a base last year like you again. Oh, you're welcome. This I grew up in a very dysfunctional home had a very dim view on marriage. My parents divorced when I sixteen I thought I would never get married. I went off to school to in graphic design and graduated and started working, and I was all set up to make my career my God, and it kind of fit right in with all this stuff that we're saying back in seventy. And I live my life rather self centered not really valuing my life. And and then Jesus rescued me. He showed me that he had made me with the purpose. I should stop being reckless with my life. He showed me that he loved me. He showed me from the bible what he had planned for marriage, which was so different from anything. I hid it was seen. And I met a young man at my church. We got married I still kids stores on my radar because I was still somewhat self centered and then we got pregnant very early in our marriage. And when the child is sitting in the hospital, and we were looking at hurt, and we looked at each other and said, this is amazing. Let's get as many of these we can't. And so we have six children that are grown now. And I will say that this feminism and really so much advertising preaches, you deserve it. Do this for yourself, and it really focuses on being self centered and nothing will take that out of you like having kids. And trying to be a good parent. Well, I agree with you. You know, as soon as you said Jesus, I know the talk about this next hour. The data are in the currently the largest single religious.

"Of perfectionism. That's what Harvard health recommends. And what that means is starting to find ways where you encourage yourself noticing things you get right noticing the impact that you have. One of the ways you can do this is offering a group of close friends what positive impact you have in their life. When you hear those answers you ever to recognize that there are things that you're doing that already have an impact without even being conscious. This is something known as unconscious competence every day. We do countless things. Well, without even knowing that we're doing them when we recognize them and appreciate them. We can encourage ourselves to move forward. Another beautiful way of removing perfectionism is helping others and just seeing how much they value in the process, so, cultivate, and mood of self compassion. This requires a bit of reflection. It requires a bit of time. But it will help you move beyond becoming a perfectionist. Now that doesn't mean you don't work hard. It doesn't mean that you don't make incredible work. It doesn't mean that you give up get lazy. What it means? Is you willing to learn from everything you do you willing to learn from everything you launch when I share a video for me. It's an experiment. You learn. Learning from it. You exploring an idea you exploring how people connect with it and not so much more exciting liberating and non judgmental way of yourself to learn and grow. Now this second tip and second principle that I'd love for you to start today this weekend wherever you are right now. And I promise you it will be life changing when I lived as a monk we were trained to do one thing at a time. It's something I now call single tasking instead of multitasking most of us think we can multitask and studies show that actually only two percent of the world can actually multitask. And the funny thing is when we hear that we all think it's us the truth is most of us are in the ninety eight percent that Kant multitask in Zayed's is usually about trying to juggle multiple things. How many times have you ever been in that situation? Will you know, you've got a million things to do you end up trying to do all of them at the same time, and you end up achieving nothing. How many times have you been in? In that position before. So when you eat just eat experience every flavor every cent every bite when you're with someone fully engage. I contact focus listening. Engage all your senses. Single tasking is doing one thing at a time and to brilliant way to boost your mental health because it allows your body and mind to do the one thing that needs to do when you're eating food. And all you do is eat your digesting, it better your food is giving you all the nutrients your body needs. When you just drinking water. Your body is processing that water. When you're just having a conversation, your focus on your mind, is processing just that one thing we experienced piece when what we think what we say. And what we do are aligned how many times have you ever had that experience in your life? Where you're thinking one thing saying another thing and doing another, right? Some of those were eating food reading. Article and thinking about work. So oftentimes this disconnect in what we're doing thinking and feeling on a daily basis is will create stress is what creates pressure, and is what creates Zaidi, and even though you may think you achieve more by multitasking, actually, don't because your energy spread across a number of tasks things. Take longer you become less productive, and you become more tired. When you do one thing. At a time, your focus is completely pinpointed on that activity, and therefore you automatically boost productivity boost effectiveness, and even boost your creativity principle number three is based on the famous Harvard study that you may have heard about. But even if you haven't let me explain it in a seventy five year old Harvard study studying humans lives, seventy five years. They found the clearest message that we get this. Good relationships. Keep us happier. And healthier period. Not how much money is in your savings account. Not how many keynotes you gave in your life. Not how many posts you posted on Instagram, or how many followers you have. Or how many tech companies you worked for how influential you were. Or how powerful you are. No, the biggest predictor of your happiness. And meaning in life is love and relationships. But let me go a step further because maybe you've heard that before and using Jay I've heard is so many times. But what does that mean? And I have lots of friends. So what does that look like? So let me go a step deeper for you. Specifically, the study demonstrates that having someone to rely on helps you nervous system relax helps your brain stay healthier for longer period of time, and even reduces emotional and physical pain and trauma. I one of the most incredible things is that the study shows that those who feel lonely a more likely to see their physical health decline earlier and even die younger, but. Is it even more important point here? Loneliness can still be experienced even in company listened to that carefully. Loneliness can even be experienced when you surrounded by thousands of people or thousands of friends online. It's not just a number of friends you have and it's not whether or not you're in a committed relationship. It's the quality and depth of your close relationships that matters. And what that means is how much vulnerability and depth exists within your relationship, and that's judged by these three things listen carefully in your relationships. Ask yourself who is feeding these things you need. And who are you feeding these things for and remember, it can be multiple people who do one of these the biggest mistake, we can make is expect one person to be all of these the best thing we can do is find one thing in many people, but these are the three things. That dictate whether the quality of our relationships is really powerful.

"For prostate tissue his Harvard health publications Harvard Medical School I. Thought, it was interesting to look. At Harvard and Yale well my stepson went to, yell my stepson went to. Yell for physics and math no shifty courses for him We used to go, up to the Yale bowl and watch while those Ivy league games, I have to tell, you that had. Them Peter most uncomfortable sheeting I've ever encountered in my life. You, had to bring some looked. At but then even those were today's Denny what, to Stanford for math research My stepson Now, here's Harvard A study of forty one thousand adults found that participants who drank more than five cups of green. Tea, a day How to twenty six percent lower risk, of dying from a heart attack a twenty six percent lower risk of dying from a stroke on a sixteen. Percent lower risk of death from any cause competitive people who drank less than one Cup of green tea every day Okay then they looked at a second analysis a meta analysis of thirteen Human trials Thirteen in, green tea five on black, t. okay Black she had no. Effect on heart risk now I wouldn't say, no it had a little. Bit of protective effect, to be honest with you The problem with black tea in this country is, people add milk to it and, milk destroys to protect protective benefits of black t. so it's not the black t. it's. The way people consume but people don't normally Ed milked the green tea and green tea. Is much more robust and its antioxidant anti. Inflammatory effects it has. A different profile of polyphenols in there and, there's much more of them Okay Maybe I should explain that to. You it's rather. Interesting There's the tea plant they. Picked a leaf Okay they dry they want to get it down from about eighty six. Percent moisture to about sixty seven, percent moisture, so they put on the table try it then they put it in a machine that spins around. And trashes at breaks to tea leaf down and then they put on another table where it oxidises and, then it becomes black, t., k., it oxidized you lost the. Antioxidants tea antioxidants oxidized. Green tea is different Green tea They picked the same Lee from the, same plant but they steam it Before they try it why steaming, blocks the enzyme that breaks down to good stuff, in the tea. Leaf it prevents the oxidation of polyphenyls of the, antioxidants it retains them And then they try it they want to get. It down from eighty seven percent moisture eighty six percent moisture, down the sixty seven percent then. They. Put it in a trash machine of break, it up into little pieces she can have a tea bag or a Cup of tea. And then they re dry it again they wanna get down to three percent moisture. But it never oxidized the steaming prevented from oxidizing who's. To genius to. Figure that out so green tea is loaded with these, polyphenyls wearing a black t. they've been. Corrupted they've been oxidized that makes. It tastes like black tea. So that's why when you see. Studies comparing black t. the green tea the black. T. doesn't prevent breast cancer the green tea does the black she doesn't prevent prostate, cancer the green tea does the black she doesn't, prevent pleading stroke The green tea does green tea prevents stroke the black she doesn't prevent a. Blockage stroke green tea does and here according to Harvard five studies black he had. No impact on hearth risk thirteen studies in green tea. Drinkers people who. Drank the most green tea at twenty eight percent lower, risk of coronary artery disease than those. Who drank leash green tea so. Why should that matter coronary. Artery disease as plaque building up. In the artery at heart There's only three offseason heart the one in front of the left side of. Heart that's called the Widowmaker?
