35 Burst results for "Heart Disease"
Why Dr. Kumar is Changing The Wellness Game
"Welcome back once again, see the outcomes, rocket podcasts where we chat with today's most successful and inspiring health care leaders. I really WANNA. Thank you for tuning in again and I welcome you to go to outcomes rocket dot health slash reviews where you could rate and review today's podcast because he is one outstanding individual and healthcare is name is Dr Rajiv Kumar he's the president and chief medical officer at Virgin Pulse during medical school he realized that many of the worst health problems we face as a nation diabetes heart disease cancer hypertension. Et, CETERA. I related to the collective unhealthy lifestyle, and so he has pledged to make a difference in this industry. He's done and as a frontline physician and now through various different companies, some amazing things and so what I WANNA do is open up the microphone to Raji to fill in any of the gaps of the introduction and then a so we could get into the podcast. Reggie welcome to the PODCAST. Think saw glad to be here. So Rajiv, what would you fill in in your intro that I that I left out? I think that was pretty comprehensive. Just, a little bit about virgin pulse. You know what? I think that may not be familiar name to a lot of folks on your that are listening to your podcast. We are an employee wellbeing company. We work with large employers all around the world, and our goal is to help them activate their employees to lead healthier lifestyles which had to kind of go around the healthcare system a little bit, and go direct to the employees and figure out ways to motivate them to inspire them and to help them sustain behavior change over time, and it's not just about healthcare cost reduction. It really is about how do we help people be? Healthier, happier and more productive at work in their personal lives. So that's really what our mission is. That's beautiful and listeners for those of you who haven't connected the DOTS virgin pulse. One of Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group companies. So you know with the gentleman like that behind something like this and and Rajiv as part of the executive leadership team, you can imagine some great things are happening. It's an exciting time for us. We definitely are inspired by Sir Richard Branson leadership in his philosophy is if you take care of your employees, they'll take care of your business, and so we're trying to empower employers to take better care of their employees. So strong, and and you know it's really interesting that you guys are tackling this employer perspective of the entire health career equation because costs are soaring and aside from labor costs, it seems like healthcare cost is oftentimes double digits in that front. What are your thoughts on what should be on every medical leaders agenda today? Well, I'm biased but I think it has to be a behavior change remember too often looking for a magic pill or magic device or something to kind of stem the tide of rising obesity, diabetes and heart disease in our country and at the end of the day, there's so much. We can do to actually change people's behavior a lot of what we're facing as a result of our diet, our physical activity or lack thereof the stress that we have in our lives just how we how we treat ourselves and how we don't take care of ourselves, and so I think it's not necessarily a hot topic I. Think it should be and and I wish there was more focus on it is the perennial that if we can change behavior, we can prevent a lot of disease and we can produce significantly greater outcomes and Reggie. What would you say right now at at at Virgin? Pulse. Is an example of how you guys are improving health outcomes. Well, I think we really tried to think outside of the box I think traditional health interventions and and health and wellbeing platforms have largely been ineffective and they've been around for decades. So we sat around and we said what if we took a different approach rather than making people feel like they're failures rather than telling them that they're sick what if we actually make them feel successful what if we make them feel good about themselves right off the bat what would that do for self esteem for their motivation and for their ability to change. Most of what we see in our industry is a heavy focus on screening, and so employers asked their employees to take health risk assessments and do biometric screenings and so forth, and the problem with that is they take a health risk assessment tells them you're sick. You know you have high risk, your unhealthy needs to do more change your lifestyle, get your biometric screening results and you have high blood pressure. You may not like the results that you get back and that can be very demotivating, and so we've said is, is there a scientist out there? Is there a behavior change model that focuses on success? We found a scientist by the name of Dr Bj fog out of Stanford University and Dr Fog is sort of a new guru of behavior change and he's come up with a behavior change model that he caused the fog behavior change model and it's very simple as model is is a formula to it is called B. Equals M. A. T.. Equals motivation times, ability times a trigger, and so what he means by that is to get somebody to do a behavior that we want them to do or they want to do. First of all, they have to have the motivation to do it. Second is they have to have the ability to do it, and a third is you have to trigger them. To trump to do that behavior and too often in the in the kind of behavior change space, we ask people to do things that require either too much motivation or too much ability. So we say something like go to the gym four times a week and exercise for sixty minutes. Each time you go that takes a lot of motivation and some people may not even have the ability a really know how to do that where to get started so forth so Dr Fog says, well, motivation is hard to change. Your motivation waxes and wanes on a daily basis on an hourly basis, we can't really change somebody's motivation that easily what you can do is changed the behavior you're asking them to do to make it easier. You can change the ability to perform the action, and so the idea is if you take a behavior like washing your teeth and you break it down to the smallest tiniest thing that somebody could possibly do like floss one tooth and you ask them to do that they can actually do. That very easily, it doesn't take a lot of motivation is very quick to do, and if they do that and you celebrate the fact that they did it, you can help them build what we call success momentum, and then they're going to feel better about going to the next step and try something harder and so in our entire approach to behavior change, we break behaviors down into their simplest most basic action we ask people to do that would trigger then and then when they do it we. Reward them make them successful. We give them social status. They might get some kind of points or some kind of reward, and then we ask them to do something harder the next time around and stuff feedback loop that builds up momentum, and it changes behavior in a very sustainable way in a very habitual way, which is really the key to behavior changes creating habits.
Dr. Richard A. Van Etten: Cancer
"Please welcome to the show Dr Rick van how you doing. Thank you very much Andrew and Brittany I greatly appreciate the opportunity to be able to come and talk to your talk your listeners today. Yeah. Well, thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to talk to us. So we're GONNA be talking about obviously cancer and how you can prevent cancer do your best to prevent it. But as I mentioned in the Intro, most likely someone knows someone who's had cancer or they've had cancer themselves even it's pretty it seems like it's touches a lot of people but can you kind of tell me how many people does cancer impact on a yearly basis? Well. Thank you for the question Andrew. The lifetime risk of getting cancer is approaching thirty eight or thirty, nine percent. So more than one in three Americans will get cancer during their lifetime. So that explains what you said that basically almost everybody is either been personally. Involved with cancer knows a close family member or a loved one that's been stricken by cancer. So some of the statistics nationwide in the United States, there's about one point seven million people diagnosed each year with cancer. And they'll be about unfortunately six hundred thousand Americans will die every year of cancer. Here in Orange County it's interesting that cancer has overtaken cart diseases, the number one killer, and as soon gonNA happen nationwide. So a very very. Prevalent disease what kind of has led to what's led to that trajectory? Why is that happening? Well, actually the the the death rate from cancer has been falling and it's been falling significantly over the past fifteen or twenty years, which is a success basically for the research that's gone into it through the National Cancer Institute and other mechanisms. But the fact that cancer is now the number one killer has actually also reflected progress in cardiovascular disease. So doing which used to be the number one killer. So we're doing a better job at preventing. Heart disease through the things that you know about treatment of the risk factors like high lipids, blood pressure, diabetes et CETERA. Right? Interesting. Okay. All right. So we got some work to do on the cancer and Kinda catch up. And, that generally, like I mentioned usually happens through education funding, which we'll talk about in a little bit What types of cancers are the most prevalent today? I know that you specialize are a believe in like blood cancers by what are the most prevalent that people run into so we can talk both about incidents, which is the new diagnosis that we have each year and prevalence, which is the number of people living with the disease at any given time. But the top four in both categories are pretty similar. So there's breast cancer which obviously predominantly affects women but also can affect men. Then there's lung cancer there's prostate cancer which obviously is a male cancer and the last one is colorectal cancer. Those are the big four. Close on their heels are diseases like skin cancer and melanoma that's particularly relevant for Orange County where we have two hundred and eight, hundred, ninety days per year rate. And after that come some blood cancers that I specialize in, which is mainly things like leukemia lymphoma and Myeloma Okay. What kind of leads to these types of cancers occurring out of those top four that you mentioned, what? What's the biggest contributor to people getting? Is it? Is it just genetics you got bad genes or something in your lifestyle or in your the world around you I guess causing it. So they're. Probably, equal contributions both from genetics and from lifestyle. Okay. When I say genetics I mean the cancer is principally in the opinion of a lot of primarily a genetic disease in the cancer cells have acquired mutations that contribute to their malignant or cancerous phenotype, their ability to grow and attack the body. Most of those mutations are acquired in other words they happened just within the cancer cell and they're not inherited. So you don't get them from your mother or your father. Now there are exceptions there are well defined cancer susceptibility syndromes the most the one that may be most familiar to your listeners is the bracket jeans Brca which segregating families particularly people, of Ashkenazi, Jewish descent that are inherited either from your mother or your father, and greatly increase your risk for developing breast cancer or ovarian cancer so that the risk for women who doesn't ever bracken gene mutation is about one about eleven percent or one in nine during your lifetime. If you inherit one of these genes, it's virtually almost everybody will get breast cancer ninety percent risk over your lifetime. So, this cancer susceptibility syndromes are very important the need. For instance when there's a new cancer diagnosis, you need to take a careful family history and in some cases be referred to a genetic counselor to determine whether testing family members is indicated. Yeah. Well, that's interesting that you bring that up because my wife actually we went through that process, and so she was found her mother had breast cancer and through that process they found out, she had the bracket gene Brac to and then and so my wife decided because they kind of give you choice like do you want to get screened? Do you not like you kind of have? Do you want to know more or or like not and stay naive to it I guess and so what I've discovered, we went through it and is interesting out of the split my wife got it and her sister didn't so the fifty, fifty there and. It. Seems like. It's I think my opinion is it's good to know because now they're just more aggressively screening her and is that typically the case when you find out about something like that, you're more your screened even more regularly than the average person should be. That's right. A change basically changes the surveillance. In it not to make it more complicated. But there are some genes like the broncos where the penetrates which means that the chance of actually getting breast cancer. If you have the have, the mutation is very high I think there it's pretty straightforward to decide whether to get screened. Right. There are other mutations that can be inherited that don't increase the risk that much increase it above the background, but it's not nearly as high and there it's more complicated to try to decide what to do about that. But. My advice to your listeners is to seek the advice of a NCI cancer center in a a qualified genetic counselor. Those are the people best qualified to help guide you through that decision making process right? Right. When you're going through like you said they ramp up the screening process if you had the genetic mutation but how does how did we get to discovering these genetic mutations I? It sounds like you kind of have somewhat of a background like you discovered or help discover this protein that was causing leukemia right and. How does that process even work? How do we make these discoveries? How do you make these? Discovery I was involved in is one of these acquired mutations not inherited, but it came about from studies done many many years ago actually nineteen sixty that showed that patients with this particular type of leukemia had an abnormal chromosome in their blood cells. And when to make a very long story short when that was tracked down, it was shown that the chromosome was actually an a Barrett. That was acquired in these cancer cells that lead to the expression of this abnormal protein. And that protein. Hasn't is an enzyme which means that it has a ability to catalyze chemical reactions. Okay and that particular reaction stimulated the growth of those blood cancer cells. So. That led a drug company, which is today is no artis to develop us a drug a small molecule inhibited the action of that protein. And that That drug which has the trade name GLIVEC revolutionized the treatment of that leukemia so that in the past everybody died of this leukemia, unless you had a bone marrow or stem cell transplant. Today everybody takes a drug likely. And most people go into remission and when they do, they have normal age adjusted life expectancy. That's example would that's Therapy likely that can do to cancer right? So does this all come from these discoveries? Does it come from just? Tons of data over decades like this one you're saying, it came from research started in the sixties and this didn't have until the early nineties. Is that right or wealth the the The structure of the protein was discovered. I'm saying Circa Nineteen, eighty-four which I got involved. The drug development efforts took place shortly thereafter I'm and the was FDA approved in two thousand one. So it's been on the market now for almost nineteen years I and there are many many other efforts in other cancers that are parallel parallel that. The thing that's happened today is because of our new technology and the genomics and the ability to determine, for instance, the genome sequence very quickly that's accelerated the progress that we can make. So what took forty years from sixty two to the drug being approved now can be done in a couple of years. Wow. Everything's happening much much faster. That's awesome. That's great news for those of US living right now.

Philadelphia sued over bill limiting flavored tobacco sales
"Officials struck back today at three cigar makers that are suing the city over a bill that limits the sales of flavor. Tobacco products. Okay, whatever you City Hall bureau chief Pat Lowe reports, the officials charged. The suit is a threat to both public health and racial justice. Late last year, City Council banned the sale of candy flavored cigarillos in any establishment that allowed Children inside the cigar makers charge. This was effectively a ban on all sales since few stores are adult on Lee. And they sued on three grounds that the law is preempted by state tobacco regulation that it's vaguely worded and overly broad. These companies ought to be ashamed of themselves. Health Commissioner Tom Farley says. The products are designed to appeal to Children with bright packaging and sweet flavours, alleging the intention is to get them addicted to nicotine. A drug that kills this is like selling Coke, good 19 and corner stores. Doctor Farley says the products particularly target minority youth before the law, they were much more widely available in communities of color.

What if lifesaving prescriptions were affordable for all
"Hi Hugh Ted Talks Daily today a super cool idea to ensure people have access to the medicines they need to survive and thrive Kia Williams the founder of the nonprofit serum saw both a problem and a solution that exists in the pharmaceutical space and her idea link. The two together should explain in her talk from Ted Twenty twenty. Every day in this country families are forced to make impossible choices when it comes to their healthcare. Like Kimberly who said? There is time I to choose between my food and my pills. It wasn't luxury stuff because I didn't make that much. It was like, can I get shampoo or conditioner? Things you take for granted and Debbie. Who Said you put your medicine in one hand your living costs in the other. Okay. Well, what am I going to do? Am I GONNA get my medicine or am I gonNA pay my bills? Will. I can't live without my medicine but I can't live if I don't pay my bills ten thousand people die every month in this country because they don't take the medicine that they need. More people die from not taking medications than. Overdoses and car accidents combined. But you can't take medicine if you can't afford it. Today the average household spends three thousand dollars a year on medications about a third of folks who are uninsured said that they stopped taking medicine as prescribed because of cost even folks with insurance. If they make under thirty, five, thousand dollars a year half of them report skipping the medications if their insurance doesn't cover it. So there are. Million adults like Kimberly in like Debbie who are forced to make impossible choices every day. We all know that prescription drug prices are too high. In our healthcare system that makes some folks uninsured and other folks underinsured doesn't prioritize people who need access now and need medications. Now, ten million, it's a big number, but it's also a solvable number because there's also ten billion dollars of perfectly good unused medication that goes to waste. So this is an injustice onto sides people not getting the medicine that they need to survive and to thrive. In, that very same medication being sent to a medical waste incinerator to be destroyed this waste is unconscionable, but it also offers an opportunity I started serum a not for profit technology company with my co founders Adam and George. To turn discarded medications into a lifeline, we may not be able to fix all the ways in which our healthcare system is failing us, but we can fix this one. Medications come from manufacturers wholesalers who have safety stock, and when it's short dated, they destroy it. It also comes from healthcare facilities like fiddles pharmacies in nursing homes who end up with surplus when a patient stops taking medication or when they pass away. We can use this untapped source of medications to supply all ten million people who need medications, and we can do this today. Serum get surplus medications by putting recycling bins into the hundreds of facilities that have surplus they fill the been and when the boxes full serum initiates a courier pickup to pick up that medication in we handle the shipping the tracking the manifests in the tax receipt medicine donors want to donate because it's actually cheaper and easier than the highly regulated medicine destruction process. And they're strong tax incentives to actually donate. We then deliver those donated medications to people who needed a new prescription comes in in our platform matches that patient need with the inventory that's available. Our platform then generates a warehouse pick lists. The medications are picked in the prescription spills. We are building the twenty-first-century pharmacy experience that low income families deserve patients can register in under five minutes and have access to over five hundred different medications A. Stable list of medications for everything from heart disease to mental health conditions
The Case Of Chad And Lori Daybell
"Dick I feel like we've kind of been just living this case the last several days there's so much that we had to delve into. So let's just start with an overview of the timeline going back to the beginning because it's very complicated and as much for me as for the listeners a little review and a little in-depth investigation into these things would be helpful both helpful the me. We did last week's first part of this and I'm just at the time you do it do the recording. It sounds reasonable. Then as I think back about it, I'm trying to say what happened when who did what? So. This'll be very helpful. It's a crazy thing and of course, with the tragic ending, which is horrible. So. Let's go back to Chad Day Bell. He married his first wife Tammy in nineteen ninety and they had five children together over the years in Nineteen ninety-two Laurie got married for the first time at age eighteen and this marriage only lasted a very short time under a year from what I've heard. Then she remarried in nineteen ninety five and that's when she gave birth to her son Colby in nineteen, ninety six. Again, she got divorced then in two, thousand one, she married Joseph Ruin and Laurie and Joe had their daughter Kylie together in two thousand and two, and just a little bit of a word about Tyler's childhood. We we know that she was used as a pawn by Laurie and her divorce custody filings against Joe Ryan. But there's also some evidence fairly convincing evidence that Laurie mains have had Munchausen by proxy pilot who's in and out of the hospital many times, and she even had exploratory surgery to quote figure out what was wrong unquote and that's something that just. Really isn done nowadays, right? No, it isn't that if we go back a few years that was something I mean if if you have parent who keeps bringing a child into the office bureau for various complaints and you have run tests and nothing ever shows up, you might have considered doing an exploratory bit of surgery as probably a what's called a lap me. Where they look inside the the belly at the F. Domino contents and maybe take biopsies just to see if there was something that they had missed Leah from my experience on a pediatric surgical floor though they only do that when they're like at the end of their rope, this is after days of observing taking the kid off of a regular diet doing. IV fluids run, they do a lot of things I and the munch just love to hang out in the room for days and get the attention. So this is very classic Munchausen by proxy behavior who certainly is yet it really is and no illness was ever determined, which is significant I think road even with the surgery. Yes. So so there you go. Exactly. Nine, two, thousand when Tyler was about six, her therapist raised concerns about the stress Tyler was going through with her health issues and the custody issues. Tally, did say to the therapist that she did enjoy visits with her father. There were documented concerns about Laurie being dishonest on Tyler's intake forms. One of these things whereas where Lori said, the tally had pancreatitis. The custody documents I was able to peruse showed that Kylie did say she enjoyed visits with her father but then she told the therapist that she was frightened to stay overnight because her father molested her now she used the word molested and when her mom came into the room with her and the therapist apparently tie looked at Lori and said I, told her. So it just really I'm not convinced that Joe sexually abused tightly and I'll always believe someone until I have reason not to especially a child but there were some classic signs of the Mother Coaching her. So in two thousand, four, Laurean Joe were divorced and Laurie remarried Charles Valo in two, thousand six. Now for those of you who are counting Charles's husband number four. Yes, and in two thousand, twelve, a little boy named Joshua. Jackson was born he's he's the biological child of Charles Valez nephew his grandparents cared for jj until they made the decision along with Lori and. Charles that Lori Charles would adopt and raise JJ, and this was back in two thousand fourteen. Laurie already had colby and entirely. So the grandparents K. and Larry Woodcock were really thinking that they might have a better home there because there'd be other kids. It's kind of their little bit younger than Larry and K. so laurie who they thought was just a wonderful mom. At, the time agreed to adopt the little boy with Charles and then Laurie Charles entirely moved to Hawaii along with JJ services in two thousand fourteen when the adoption went through the options gone through and we've Kurt the family now lorries. Oldest son is what out of the house at this point because he's like eighteen nineteen, he didn't move to Hawaii with them now. He didn't in two thousand fifteen back to Chad, Tammy and the family moved to Idaho from Utah Right, in two years later, the veil of family moved back to Arizona, from Hawaii then on April third two, thousand, eighteen lorries, ex husband, her third husband Joseph Ryan was found dead in his home Laurie was notified as she was still listed as his next of kin. Didn't notify Joe's sister Anne who by all accounts she was very close to Anne was still a part of tiles life, your birth Maurice to ruin agenda Yes. I know we've talked about this a little bit in part one, but you did get a chance to review the autopsy. They were a few things that stuck out to us like the fact that the height was off and they call them a heavyset guy which he really wasn't. No. But remember he was in his apartment for at least a week decomposing before anyone found was a neighbor who found him that's correct. Yes and we don't have the entire autopsy but the cause of death was per tiriac sclerotic heart disease, which means that you're coronary arteries getting clogged up, which isn't really crazy for a fifty nine year old man to die of in general but
Keep naps under an hour for better heart health, researcher says
"New study suggests. It's best to keep your naps short and sweet. Besieged, researchers looked at data from 20 different studies and determined that napping for more than an hour. Is linked to a 30% higher risk of premature death. And 34% greater odds of developing heart disease. They also found that napping for less than one hour may boost heart health. For those who struggle to sleep at night. So they say. If you want to take a siesta, the study suggests that it's safest to keep it under an hour.
Fires In California And Colorado Cover The West With Smoke
"There are nearly a hundred uncontrolled large fires burning across the western US right now in California Colorado Oregon and other states the fires have forced tens of thousands of people to flee their homes and the smoke is affecting millions as NPR's Nathan. Ross reports that is especially worrisome during this pandemic. Stephanie Christianson is a pulmonologist or a lung doctor as she puts it who's already on the frontlines of covid nineteen. She's an assistant professor at the University of California San Francisco and over the last few days and week as fires exploded around the bay area filling the air with acrid smoke sheet and some of her colleagues started asking each other. Every apocalypse packers now is it feels kind of like we're. Doctors it wasn't exactly what to expect. Going into this, the smoke from California's fires and others is blanketing most of the western US blurring skylines and creating haze from the west coast to as far east as Kansas and in that smoke is something that Christians, and says is definitely not good to be breathing particularly during a respiratory pandemic an air pollutant called PM two point five. It's this particulate matter which is really really tiny thirty times smaller than the diameter of a human hair. So it's really really small and that means that it can lodge deep into your lungs where Christians says, it can cause A. Whole host of problems that can increase the risk of as exacerbating COPD exacerbations, heart disease issues, and she says potentially cove in nineteen the viruses new enough that most of the research into links between it, an air pollution like smoke are preliminary but Christian says they do know enough to speculate that smoke inhalation could make the virus worse and it's worrying health officials and researchers all across the western US I was initially really worried about wildland firefighters Luke Montrose is an assistant professor of community and Environmental Health at a very smoky Boise State University, and served transition my thought now. To today's the first day of school at Boise State and the first day of classes for a lot of schools K. through twelve in the West in normal times. MONTROSS says during Smoky Fire Seasons schools can keep windows shut but in a year like this closed the windows and potentially increase the concentration of virus that could be spreading around the school because you're trying to reduce the amount of toxic wildfire smoke a situation he says where there's really no good choice.

Better Food, Better Health with Lauren Driscoll
"Welcome back to the outcomes rocket saw Marquez here. Today I have the privilege of hosting Loren Driscoll. She's a healthcare strategist and entrepreneur and founded project well to support health plan's efforts to address critical non-clinical needs of their members nutritional and social isolation. Lauren is also a senior adviser in the strategy practice of partners, a health intelligence firm founded by former secretary of human health, and Human Services. Michael. Abbott Prior to partners Lawrence, served as corporate director of Oxford Health plans. Medicare business learns also co chair of the United States of care entrepreneurs. Council Lauren is also a board member at health works a healthcare organization that addresses the root causes of illness, poverty and neglect in Burundi. Africa she served as the Acting Executive Director of village health works and has also member of the University of Virginia College of Arts and Sciences Foundation Board. Lauren grew up in Baltimore Maryland, she received her bachelor's in University of Virginia, her masters in public health from. University today, we're GONNA be diving into the topic of really health through what you eat and the work that they're doing it project well as fascinating food as medicine and Lauren. is going to be helping US understand how they're helping people stay healthy and thrive with what they eat or in such a privilege to have you here today. Saw Thank you so much for inviting me to talk with you absolutely now, I love the focus of food are you and I had a chance to connect before the interview and it's near and dear to my heart might my family's heart what we matter so much before we dive into the value prop you guys have. I love to learn more about what inspires your work in healthcare. Sure. Yeah. There are really three things. So that have really told me end healthcare I would say I is just my beliefs that older adults really deserve better. There's just so much sort of preventable hardship and suffering with respect to health and you know I guess I feel like it's just super unfair that after spending their lives doing the best they can and often nurturing sort of next generations that we aren't doing a better job out with respect to the crowd disease that. So many of our older adults southwest so that that's number one number two I would say is just the unfortunate inefficiency of our US healthcare system. Part of me I, almost think I might have been a process engineer or something in another life that drives me crazy to not take the shortest path between two points and so I look at situations in our US healthcare today especially say with dual eligible 's the care for those who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid and therefore sort of among the most vulnerable in our country, and yet there's just there's so much inefficiency with these two payments streams and the two sets of rules really creating just you know perverse incentives that. End Up causing these folks to sort of Ping Pong around our system and Drive exorbitant costs and not even particularly good health outcome. So I would say it's inefficiencies like that that. You know really draw me into healthcare. and. Then the final one is you know you you introduce which is just I am such a believer and food as medicine I. Think it's very simple. Good food leads to good health and so as simple as that sounds and sort of even elegant. It's clear that there's just a sort of glaring missed opportunity and our country to really leverage the power of food. So it's really a combination of these these three things that inspired me to start project well. Get for you and You captured some heavy stuff there lauren, you know older adults deserve better and you know we're inefficient and food candy medicine and it is. So let's dive into this. You know what? What exactly is project well, and how you guys adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. Sure. So our mission out. So to start out by explaining project, well, tell your mission. Is really just to improve the lives of those who are suffering with with chronic disease. Often food insecurity and loneliness, and to bend the healthcare cost curve as we do it. So our solution is centered on food and. Look, at food and. Medicine but also as an anchor for socialization and Education Man's the end of the day we know people come together around food. and. So we are a young company. So we are really starting with home delivered meals and meal kits for those who really have sort of the most nutritionally sensitive chronic disease. So thank diabetes and heart disease and we're starting they're both because these are the people that have the greatest level of need we can help them us. But also because are proof of concept pilots drive results there must quickly.
Should You Switch to Fish Oil with PRMs?
"Fish oil is rich in the omega three fatty acids, EPA and Dha and most American adults don't get the recommended amount of these nutrients from their diet and officials supplement is one way to help fill that gap. Fish Oil is also used in higher therapeutic doses to treat and prevent. Variety of health conditions including heart disease, auto, immune disorders, arthritis, and even depression. There are a few different mechanisms of action here. Omega threes are anti thrown Belichick that means that they reduce the tendency of blood to form clots and they're also potent anti inflammatories. To how do they do all of this? Well, Omega threes are enzymatic converted in your body into various biologically active molecules and those then orchestrate the body's inflammatory and immune responses at the cellular level. There are a lot of different types of these active compounds including Prostaglandins I, cost annoyed and leukotrienes. Pro Resolving mediators or PRM's our newly recognized category of these active compounds. The three main types of these are protections, resolve ines and medicines, and the fact that three PRM's start with p. r. and M. is actually quite handy. Now, in some medical papers, you'll see these compounds referred to as s PM's which stands for specialized pro resolving mediators, but that's not nearly as handy under Monica device. So I'M GONNA STICK WITH PRM's. Like their name implies crow resolving. Act to actively resolve or turn off the body's inflammatory responses and I want you to remember inflammation is not necessarily a bad thing. It is part of the body's immune response and in the right place at the right time, it serves a very important and valuable function. Chronic or excessive inflammation on the other hand can start to create problems and that's where the PR come in their job is to switch off that inflammatory activity once the immediate threat has been dealt with, which allows the inflammation to resolve and healing to begin. Some research suggests that in diseases that are characterized by chronic or inappropriate inflammation, there might be some sort of disruption in the body's production of these. PRM's and other research shows that supplementation with omega three fatty acids like those fish oil can increase the amount and the activity of PRM's in the body. But if our body makes PRM's when we take Omega three, why would we need to take them as a supplement? Why indeed?

What NLP Tells Us About COVID-19 and Mental Health with Johannes Eichstaedt
"I am here with Yohannes Istat Yohannes is an assistant professor of psychology at Stanford University. Yohannes. Welcome. To the WII podcast. Thank you pleasure to be here. I'm really looking forward to this conversation. I think we learned about some of your research in the context of a presentation you did at the recent Forum. That was held by the human centered AI institute at Stanford and we're looking forward to digging into that. But before we do I'd love to hear a little bit about your background and how you came to work in a computational psychology computational social science. Yeah. Sure it's a it's a new field. I was a physicist by training many years ago. Okay and at some point decided that I. Cared more about people than I did about particles. Made A. Very Long career transitions for. Psychology into the social sciences and about ten years ago started out in started carving out in area that intersects big data machine learning with computational questions psychology and just straight up psychology questions. So for example, can be predict the heart disease risk of areas using twitter, and do the psychological predictors that we pull out from the twitter language correspond to what we know about heart disease. Can we better understand depression I mean looking at what language that people use precedes the first diagnosis of depression in the medical records so It's been really fun I. Mean I've been really enjoying IT A. Because of the physics he background I'm more matthew perhaps than some other psychologists and so I'm I'm on the sort of computational psychology side, and then there are psychological computer scientists with which interface whether we have the critical expertise across domains to actually find new stuff. Teredo. New Solutions Interesting. You're saying it is most of your work involve doing analysis of texts from social media context in drawn conclusions from that. It tends to be taxed yet tends to be extended tends to be a social media in generally all text data sets of fair game. So we've we've also used transcripts. Of therapy directions where speeches were autobiographical writing to writing prompts, but the beauty of social media data is that you're so highly powered because of the size of these data sets. That you can really use sort of deeper machine learning methods and you also have. Such high statistical power that for feature exploration for finding things like associated language patterns you have the power to discover these unexpected associations and you use you need to be order in the the thousands of people in these data sets and social media easiest source of data for those kinds of analyses. And there are other advantages disadvantages of using social. Did I could talk about sir? Okay. So at Advantages is. So you in compared to other psychological research, you don't ask people to get off the couch and Philo. Right. You don't knock on their door and you also don't intrude into their mental processes with some question in principle, right in an ideal world it's an a kind of ecological assessment. It's people that are in digital spaces they're behaving as they normally would with their friends with with hero needs with a right there just being themselves and you sort of as there are sitting around their digital campfire, you sort of listening Ed scale with their permission of course, and so there's this notion that it's unobtrusive for some psychological processes can be can be quite nice. One of the major disadvantages is that you have certain kinds of distortions in the social media signal. You have sampling biases. Certain populations are just not as represented. But that's getting less and less at it was never that big of a concern to begin with. So. For example, the median age in twitter five years different than the median age of the US population and you know people always say how you how can you make a population estimate based on twitter? You know I'm not on twitter. But you're also not in a representative survey, the vast majority of the time. Right. So in Gallup, poll polls a thousand people to get a national estimate of how people feel about trump or but they will being as you're also not in that survey. Right, and so when we have five million users on twitter and we can estimate the demographics and age that we can post, ratify these samples to represent the population actually much better. Than Your thousand person representatives obey rate and so does that make sense the sampling bias things? I think we've tackled it now we've. Beat the dead horse many times enough that that. People are coming around the the other thing or the other main concern is that the people social desirability bias that people are putting on facebook social media. I was GONNA ask about that right An advantage is that you're observing people being themselves, but often people aren't being themselves they're being their twitter self. Twitter or or their facebook south right? That's. Sometimes those are different selves. Yeah that's true and so we've we've tried to characterize a little over the years and it seems like what's really happening is not so much. So particular on platforms like Facebook, your facebook graph, the people you're connected with on facebook are the people who know you. So there's a certain element of just keeping you within the bounds of who you are roughly as a person that would just otherwise just seeming congressmens. But we have seen however is that people tend to suppress statements they not feeling well. Along. Two dimensions the I mentioned is sort of when they're sad depressed. In the other one is if there if they experienced families than life, which is part of the problem of these sort of comparative processes on Social Media, for certain groups in particular that you're comparing your normal life to somebody else's highlight reel. And that's certainly the case. So if you think about American culture more generally. I think there's two foundation myth that sort of Guy American social norms. The one is sort of positivity bias sort of suit of happiness style set of legends and myth and norms and archetypes. And then the second one is A. Protestant work ethic. which is that it's good to be successful and that successful people are somehow morally righteous or morally praiseworthy.

"heart disease" Discussed on Mayo Clinic Q
"Trae tease. You know there are millions of people in this country with heart. Disease in fact is the number one killer of both men and women in the US and the majority of those people have C. A. D. or coronary artery disease and. That's when the major blood vessels that supply the muscles of your heart. They supply blood. They supply nutrients. They supplied a supply oxygenated when they become damaged or diseased. It's called coronary artery disease. And that of course is usually the result of cholesterol containing deposits called plaque along with a little information inflammation and it is a process that we know as Atherosclerosis when the plaque buildup it narrows your coronary arteries and that decreases the blood flow to your heart's eventually that can cause symptoms that you might recognize chest pain shortness of breath a complete blockage can even cause a heart attack. And we know there's lots of things that you can do to prevent heart disease but what about reversing the damage that has already been done? Is that possible? Let's find out from Mayo Clinic Preventive Cardiologist Dr Stephen Kobetski. Welcome back to the program. Thank you for having me Backtra Kopetski you. You know. I've heard you say that you wanted to start a coronary artery disease reversal clinic suggesting that in fact if you're coronary artery disease you could make them better. Yes very clearly you can. We have the clinic. We just don't call it that. Unfortunately but the data the studies have shown you can reverse heart disease. You can reverse this narrowing of the arteries to the heart. Is You mentioned inflammation or the irritation of the lining of the artery is very important to reduce. Because that's what actually causes the blood clot to form in the heart attack to occur. And why do you get the inflammation in the first place? Well that's a great question. There are many things because inflammation smoking. High blood pressure diabetes. If you don't do those you stop the progression of heart disease of the narrowing but it's really diet. Stress Control Exercise. They will help not only stop the progression but actually promote the regression or the opening up of the artery. Is there one of those? It's most important diet stress control number. One risk factor now for early death and disease in the United States and soon to be the World Diet Diet. It used to be smoking. Smoking was yeah. So when you say Diane. Does that mean you have to become a vegetarian to reverse this damage or no? I'm Gong Broth. Only here on the right. No no you don't need to be a vegetarian but it helps if you go more towards more plant based so in the Mediterranean Diet. We've talked about here before. It has four things that aren't vegetarian in it. Red Meat which it suggested three ounces a day a deck of cards fish you know. Eat three or four times a week. A dairy products which is It's very limited just to like one pat of butter a day and then Things like poultry white meat to Turkey or chicken poultry. If you can eat most of your calories being plant-based fruits vegetables blooms whole grains and then to get full on that stuff and add in a little bit of his other things but the two things that Americans have forgotten about any Is Stress and social support and sleep. They all think well everybody's under stress don't worry about it and I don't get much sleep. I'm never I'M GONNA so don't worry about that either. Those two are huge. Because they don't allow you to have resiliency in comeback and change your lifestyle and make in lower your stress left say your heart can be healthier if you get better sleep and reduce your stress. There is no doubt about that now. What about cholesterol? Do we still worry about that. The guidelines have come out. And there'd be a new paper probably soon they'll say cholesterol isn't that important. They said that a couple of years ago and all the press picked up on was that clutch strong important. If they would read the article it would say that we eat so much saturated fat in animal fat and saturated fat in this country that the cholesterol we take in isn't as important as it used to be. So you really ought to cut down both the cholesterol and the saturated fat but you still believe in statins for people who have elevated cholesterol or are you more suggesting that it can be controlled with Diet. In most patients that can be controlled with diet takes a pretty radical change and we ask them to migrate to new died over one to two years. Because you can't just do it tomorrow. So statins have been around for a long time and there are a lot of people taking statins. So right right Any long term side effects that you've identified you know we've we have found that it can lead to increase incidence of diabetes. But it's usually earlier occurrence of diabetes than if you weren't on the Stanton so if you were obese have high fasting blood sugar have metabolic syndrome with the big haunch. You'll go into become a diabetic about three months earlier. Than if you weren't on the stanton but for everyone patient gets diabetes. Five heart attacks are prevented. We've heard that term metabolic syndrome a lot and it's difficult to understand for us and our listeners. Aspen Netflix Metabolic Syndrome has five factors. What the main was the big paunch big abdominal obesity which is very active fat. It puts out chemicals that are bad for us. It makes us more insulin resistant. Which for women going through menopause. That's where you're likely to gain weight and women it's really a higher risk for them Second is blood pressure that's elevated third is the low. Hdl Or low good. Cholesterol cleans out the arteries. And then the blood pressure. Those factors that really lead to more inflammation. And if you control those that you're much better off. We've heard you talk about fish oil before. And as I recall your a proponent I want to know if you still are and is that for everybody or is that just for people with heart disease. Well it helps a lot of people not just people with heart disease you know. Recent study showed that high dose fish oil. Epa specifically a certain type of EPA which is within you find on the bottle when you buy in the store will reduce heart attacks if you have real high triglycerides even if your ldl is controlled all right a drug called. Cpa just read that the FDA approved an expanded use of this fish oil drum. That's the one. Epa as the via C. E. P. A. is spelled and that's the one that they approved and that's one that showed benefit when it comes to fish and fish oil if you don't like fish in the you're trying to do the Mediterranean Diet but you're not eating fish fish oil take its place or is that something that you would want us both of them fish and fish oil you like ideally to use both of them and it's better to have the fish and there's no pill replaces lifestyle in the. Mediterranean died is more than just a diet. It's a lifestyle stop by the store on the way home. Pick up the the fish fresh. Take it home take awhile to cook it? Sit for a couple of hours with your family as you eat it and talk about the day. Don't just you know. Eat It on the way to the soccer game or something all right. Aspirin BABY ASPIRIN. Who should be taken? It still think it's a preventive for people who have had heart disease or have heart disease if you've had heart disease. Aspirin is beneficial. There's no there's no argument about that unless you have bleeding problems from it if you don't have heart disease it's not as helpful as we used to think it was. You have to be a higher risk for heart attack Over the next ten years. Ten Twelve fifteen percent risk those people benefit but the average person which is lower like seven eight percent risk. They they probably wouldn't benefit. And how does it work? It stops the inflammation in the lining of the arteries and also stops the blood clot formation in the lining of the artery when Exercises something that you're supposed to do. I think that can be intimidating for people when you say. Exercise is what a patient needs to do. What does that mean? Yeah fiscal activities. I've gone to more because exercise. They kind of fold cross their arms and looked at the ceiling in fiscal activity is two things one. DoN'T BE SEDENTARY EVERY HOUR. Get up and move around for three or four minutes. A lot of the big corporations around this country in the world. Now have a thing every hour where you get up and you move around so go up two floors to go the bathroom. Go Talk to a colleague instead of sending them an email. The second thing is intense physical activity. Which is what we used to do. A lot of when you do intense activity three great. Things happen very quickly. One is the heart is told to pump more blood because the muscle say hey. We're running from the sabertooth tiger. We gotTA TRY TO SURVIVE. The second thing is the blood vessels get bigger which lowers blood pressure and the third thing is the muscle. Say Okay Belly Fat Europe next if we survive this run from the Sabertooth Tiger. I need more. Energy can only have twenty minutes of energy and my cell. You start breaking down and sending me extra energy. Because that's where we put extra calories as an adult so it's the American dream I call it you can. Actually we've shown here with research. You can reduce abdominal fat with interval activity all right one final question study from the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. This mark guys. The guys researchers have found that eating Chili peppers regularly can cut the risk of death from heart disease and stroke true. That was the number one read article last year in the Jack and so it is true. And it's funny about. It is not just regular bell peppers hot peppers and this was in addition to a Mediterranean Diet. So they say why. We'll maybe it's inflammation it didn't didn't affect inflammation maybe it's phase. Ah delegation because you get hot and your blood pressure goes down. It didn't affect what looks like. It may be some of the antioxidants that are in their in. Some of these peppers have more all right. Can't argue with that. Peer Review Journal Heart Disease.

"Working. You know you changes rates down blood pressure down. Biomarkers on your labs are so much better and here you go. You know that. Thirty two percent black as eighteen percent this year. Add thickness of regretted is half OTA was last year. Which is a very accepted biological marker of Atherosclerosis? Second do that and sometimes it's not reversing and it's pretty obvious that have not been on track or we need to dig further as to what is irritating. They're at risk system but the bottom line is it's real you can make people younger internally. I- guiding them to you know is a lifestyle I but the integrated part of me says there are a few tricks whether they be what we call nutraceutical vitamins. That have science. I'll tell you there's fascinating data from Ucla that adding an aged garlic capsule or tablet actually Japanese data initially now data from Ucla. Very prominent cardiology researcher can alter and slow coronary atherosclerosis. Just as one example. Eat all the garlic johnny onions. A Ginger G. Bombs that Joel Firm Alexa talk about. Just throwing that out there. Anybody can go to pubmed that up and put in aged garlic and you'll see its benefits for high blood pressure and randomized study is a randomized placebo. Controlled studies so little tidbits like that. Fire me up. And then I see the objective improvement S. L. You all that hard work. You did all those donuts. Who pushed away and beans beef? You substituted have made a difference. So that's very cool. That's good all the garlic. Ginger have been eating have been protecting my heart. I guess there your heart your brain pretty re body wide benefits to Those kind of they're all they all contain sulfur again. I just brought up the name of a medical doctor. Russell Jaffe MVP HD he says G. G. O. B. E. but at its ginger garlic onion BRASSICA like Broccoli. A Rubella of family is eggs because there is sulfur. Egg Yolk accounts a so much Baggage like a lot of cholesterol saturated fat. So I dropped. But then you know between Dr Furman Index Russell Jeff. You've got ginger garlic a lot of sulfur. Sulfur helps produce the antioxidants in the body which up this trend survived this dirty dirty world. We live in. How long have you seen that? It takes to reverse heart disease though. Say somebody came to your clinic. They did the coronary calcium scoring. They were hundred How long would it take to get their score down so we can go historically if you're having heart symptoms which we call angina pain back in nineteen seventy nine. I don't even know if you're born saying we're born actually okay. There you go in nineteen seventy nine Dean Orange published what we call an abstract or preliminary data if you're having active symptoms of scary symptoms of heart disease in twenty four days you to food plant based. Diet you relax with a meditation. You don't smoke your symptoms of Angina Reduced by ninety percent twenty four days and then he went on and did a randomized clinical trial. That showed it more elegantly with an geographies so that same trial show to to answer question if you use and geography which is not a screening test. That's an invasive test regatta. Go inside the body and some the I tried to do. But within a year you can document 'cause the the test point was baseline and a year. Maybe six months we could have also measured improvement but there wasn't a Catherine's ation six months so you can get symptom relief in three to four weeks. You can get documented double-blind results out of our blinded results would be a better term out of an geography in a year. I usually repeat the ultra stunned in the year. There's really no rush And see benefit the calcium score. Going down is not a parameter expect. It's actually sort of up in the air right now. If you have ather grosses it. Becoming calcified may be transitioning. It's something more chronic stable and less likely to cause really well we don't which is strokes heart attacks and aspirations and all so there's very little data you can make plaque away as probably largely these soft component bushy component. And you can see the very elegantly. On these Corrado ultrasounds the cat scan is really just a one time you know. Where are you in this course of Life Silent? Severe Heart Disease or not. But I don't usually repeat it because there's very very little data. There is one nutraceutical vitamin that has a publication in two thousand and four of dramatically reducing calcium scores and it was associated with clinical benefits has seemed like a good idea but shy of that. We just don't have a lot that one stat and there was on the market again when you were in diapers making funny Article Bay call. Service Stat doesn't exist anymore. Because of muscle side effects there was one study that they called Reduce Kelsen scores. But all the other statins actually seen the accelerator increase. It's not necessarily a bad thing. But if you have a calcium scoring one hundred and you take lipitor for a year or you take placebo you're probably GonNa have a higher scores in lipitor but you still are going to lower your risk. Is there a little odd pieces of literature that ideal patient by patient? I'm not an anti-static guy but I sure would like to give everybody that. Try to correct the Cluzel numbers some serious dietary and lifestyle measures. What's The nutraceutical vitamin you? Send that helped. Lower the calcium score. Yeah it's a patented one. It's not mine is called Nanno back in the NBA CTX available online Tell people are taking. I have it in the office and I am selective. I see people very high scores and Offer them the data. I offer them the option. It's eight capsules night with a lot of water and after really motivated Fisher. I also personally. I don't use it if they absolutely need to be on the staten because we started got the date of the Stanton's drive calcification of arteries up in this may allow removal of calcified black. So I'm selective. I have several colleagues that. Send me the results On repeat calcium scores in there clearly are some people that match the data that's in that clinical publication so if you don't check the CT calcium scores regularly. Then you follow with ultrasound or some other kind of tests I have the luxury always a good history. I mean physical too but beyond blood pressure's using that much heart disease to be detected on physical that's relevant Visit after visit Biomarkers in the labs you know insurance will cover for people with atherosclerosis elegant markers of inflammation. I WANNA get the C reactive protein down now when he get the Milo peroxidase down in those others and they do. According to very large literature. Lower risk is a very cool application or APP on the web. Actually it's more of a website now called Astro Charm Dot Org A. S. T. R. O. C. H. A. R. M. Dot. Org is free if you know your heart. Kelsen score if you know your age. Hopefully they'll your blood pressure hopefully do your total cholesterol. Hdl cholesterol whether you are diabetic or hypertensive medicine or had a relative with an early heart attack. And if you know one marker of Inflammation your high sensitivity C reactive protein tests that encourage everybody to get you plug those eight numbers or so in and a database from Dallas in Nassau. Combination of has more than ten years follow in people who have similar numbers. And you can really quickly show your ten year. Risk of a heart attack or stroke are the most advanced most accurate most predictive kind of calculator. We have risk of her. Tech's stroke right now and use it in all my patients who've had a calcium score if you've had by besser stint it doesn't work you just gotTA use. Maybe the American Heart Association risk calculator. I like doing with people who are showing. Hey you're clutch dolls. Two hundred and forty right now. We work hard and get it down to one hundred sixty and if your high sensitivity C reactive protein is two point eight right now but we talk about losing weight and eating anti inflammatory foods and exercising and such and we get down to zero point eight. I can show them their ten year. Risk fell in half by doing these things. I can't make them younger. I can't always make their celtics go now but I find it very very instructive and people come in very scared when they have these scans they should be a little concerned enough concern to study and make changes bonus. Show them look at your ten year. Risk is five percent ninety five percent likely not to have a heart attack in the next decade. No we got time to work on these things starting today but it's not a fifty fifty time bomb. You don't need to go sell your vacation on kind of

Learn how to read labels and identify what type of foods have high fructose corn syrup or some basic menus Because people want to know what the heck am I going to eat for breakfast. You know you you have to break down to practical terms for people be successful now listeners. I want you to think about this if you or someone you know has recently been diagnosed with non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Mel as your Gal. Give the LAKEVILLE office a call or you're still in Lakeville in Mendota heights right You could set up an initial consultation with her or quite quite frankly any of our nutritional testing counselors. It sounds like if you've got that diagnosis. You probably want to sit down with a nutritionist or Dietitian from nutritional weight and wellness and figure out what you need to do to reduce that fatty liver disease but also reduce use your risk of heart disease and it can be done we done with clients time and time again they come back. All of my numbers are normal. The doctor says I don't know what you're doing but keep doing. Yeah right right now we all know that sugars are not all created equal. So we're looking at sugar in processed foods as being the big culprit of inflammation and heart disease but you know those naturally occurring sugars and fruit and vegetables. Those posing no increased increased risk for heart. Disease the problem really lies with those refined sugars and the ultra processed foods ultra tre processed. Foods are all of the products on the grocery store shelves with the added Sugar. Those of the high risk foods. We'd call that a risky behavior. Using in using those ultra processed foods now unfortunately seventy five percent of all packaged foods and beverages contain sucrose gross or high fructose Corn Syrup or both both all of the things right right now. Have you ever tried to buy a regular regular unsweetened iced tea at the convenience store finding something that doesn't have any sugar. It's a challenge. You gotta look typically on the bottom shelf but almost all of those bottled iced teas contain at least three or four teaspoons of sugar eating or drinking ultra her processed foods with added sugar. That's all been linked to an increased risk of developing heart disease. And you know back to research hurt. It has found that when people cut back on saturated fat they increase their intake processed foods These processed foods are high in sugar which then increases your risk of heart disease right so in attempt to avoid the fat people have been eating more sugar. I can remember eating boxes of snack. Wells is back in the eighties. I mean it was just terrible and you With all these processed foods that we came out of that were low fat heart disease skyrocketed right in our country and even to this day. Many people still believe the false research that saturated fat is the cause of heart disease so they they are to avoid it. Even though current research urge shows that refined carbs and sugar are the leading cause of heart disease. It's no wonder people are so confused right and we found that when our clients his follow the weight and wellness eating plan their. LDL levels decrease their triglycerides decrease and their HDL increases right. So it balances balances out. It does it. It's wonderful It's really not about your total cholesterol as you. Well know it really on these. These values that matter right. Their blood blood pressure also decreases in their blood. Sugar normalizes right. We call this eating the magic of three real protein real vegetables real. Oh fat every three hours right. He hopes this show and broadcasts. That will help you to understand the potential threat that eating a high carb high sugar diet poses for women and their cardiovascular system. And if you're concerned about getting heart disease or you already have heart disease. I encourage you to call our our office at six five one.

I WanNa bring the last few minutes of our show back to this practical took Elijah of when we say eating the magic three remember. That's protein vegetable and fruit carbohydrates and real fat about every every three to four hours to get that blood. Sugar stabilized to reduce that inflammation in the body What does that mean? Maybe we should give listeners listeners. An idea I I wanNA start with the fat because that seems to be where most of the misinformation most of that misinformation is. I mean when you are working with Clients Mel and you're wanting them to eat real fat. What are some options that you that you lay out in that meal planning process will usually? They're very excited. When we say eat butter everyone is so happy to go back to the real thing because the real food is what tastes delicious talking about butter? That just has cream or maybe cream in assault on the label. That's it and you know ideally grass-fed because it's going to be higher than those our mega threes. Right I also tell them Rauscher vegetables in some good old-fashioned fashioned bacon fat mom. Are you listening this morning. We love cooking the Brussels sprouts and the the Broccoli and Bacon. Yes and I you know I even give a little swipe to my dog because they need those good fats to And then the real cream you know is putting but in your coffee some real organic cream. Right get those real fats going my My hdl went when I really started incorporating much more butter My HDL wind. It was at a good place at about fifty nine. My good cholesterol went from fifty nine and ninety nine. You had more garbage haulers garbage haulers I have no garbage garbage within being so But you know it's delicious and once clients recognize that when you add those healthy fats your vegetables much more delicious than the boring steamed vegetables that we ate for years trying to lower our cholesterol though not only are you getting the good fats. But you're also getting more or vegetables because when you put butter on your Broccoli you're eating more Broccoli us the truth ever their sister so one of the other things that we talk talk about. Is You know eating more vegetables. And across the board we know that people who have a lower risk of heart disease and have less inflammation their. Our body are eating more vegetables than those vegetables and turn bring down the inflammation and also that fat helps carry nutrients into our body from the vegetables. So so it's a win win. So when you're working with clients with non alcoholic fatty liver disease or maybe they want to lose weight or maybe they have heart disease. What are you shooting for in terms? uh-huh of Servings of vegetables day well. I'm a little stickler for this so I liked to see five to nine. Servings you guys remember.

"Like type two diabetes and fatty liver disease all of which are linked to an increased risk for cardiovascular disease. So I want to access sugar augur in the Diet. Leads to high blood pressure. Inflammation weight gain diabetes. and Fatty liver disease all of which are Arta linked for an increased risk of heart attack and stroke sally. I don't know I'm sure you see this too shabby clinic. I'm seeing so many people coming in with fatty liver disease that Donald drink alcohol But they have fatty liver disease. And I'm seeing younger and younger. I had a young twenty eight year old teacher So research reported noted that eating a diet high in sugar for just a few weeks has been found to increase your total cholesterol triglycerides writer. LDL cholesterol for all your uric acid level your insulin resistance and it also lowers your good hdl cholesterol while so in the past we're told it was saturated terminated fat that affected our cholesterol. No one ever told us it was sugar so it really is important for you to remember what I said. So I'll repeat it. The most basic terms term people on a diet high in sugar raises. LDL Cholesterol and lowers HDL cholesterol stroll. I remember those from college. L. I wanted low. HDL Or wanted High Ellen but really mel. What you're saying is that a diet? High in sugar increases increases the damaging type of cholesterol while also decreasing are protective cholesterol. Exactly Shelly I thought this. This is really interesting. I was watching a Webinar from Dr Mark. Houston he is Internist and a specialist in hypertension and Cardiovascular disease he actually founded the hypertension institute Down in Nashville Tennessee But Dark Dr Mark Houston well known. Doctor says the L. T. L. is more of like the excess garbage. That we are accumulating accumulating in those vessels it's kind of sticky and it has the potential to continue contribute rather to ooh that plaque and hardening of the arteries so you do not want your LDL to be high but he also called HDL. Aw I think this is. This is fun he called. HDL CHOLESTEROL OUR GARBAGE haulers. That kind of goes throughout the blood vessels and cleans cleans up any damage cholesterol. Now what we said is when you're eating a diet that's high in sugar you increase the garbage and you decrease the garbage haulers. Pray to love that not a good visual for those vessels so tell us a little bit more more about that research well well Once again it based on faulty research we were told the higher levels of LDL cholesterol were from saturated fat now. Numerous research studies have demonstrated that it was actually eating too much sugar. But we were vilifying fat that we were when really we need to be focusing on the sugar I absolutely and the hidden sugars exactly. Researchers also found that eating too much sugar especially high fructose. tose corn syrup disrupted the Hormone Leptin. which is a key hormone for maintaining normal body weight if you're struggling with cholesterol numbers numbers and gaining weight? The first thing to do is to cut down to eating only six teaspoons of added sugar per day. A really just eliminate you're GONNA get it in other things we don't need to count six. teaspoons sugar is not what I'm saying and definitely you want. Avoid all that high fructose corn syrup because at excess sugar also increases your risk of developing -veloping non alcoholic. Liver Disease Fatty liver the information. I'm about to share with. You may come as a big surprise but there is a stronger. The link between non alcoholic liver disease and coronary heart disease than between smoking and heart disease or between hypertension and heart disease or even between high cholesterol and heart disease. So this is important it bears repeating. There's a stronger link between non alcoholic liver disease and coronary heart disease than between smoking and heart disease or between in hypertension and heart disease or even between high cholesterol and heart disease. So Mel Really. What I'm hearing you say is that non alcoholic? Alex Fatty liver disease is very strongly connected to heart disease. And how do we need to be on the ball with that. Yeah so We often think of smoking. We often think of cholesterol and high blood pressure but we need to be paying attention to non alcoholic fatty liver disease and and how we we get that sugar under control now before we talk a little bit more about sugar.

"I think you said it. Weight and wellness DOT COM. That's so before we went to break. You had given us kind of a shocking statistic Dick. The average American child consumes nineteen teaspoons of sugar. Now for those of you who have kids and are listening. I want you to go out of the Pantry and Scuba. I'm sending to the Pantry a lot this morning but I want you to scoop out. Nineteen teaspoons of sugar and think. Would you actually Shauwie spoon feed this sugar to your child. They might like it. But don't do it you. You wouldn't let alarming. It is alarming. And you're thinking you know when you send them off with that Fruit at the bottom or fruit mixed in yogurt. And doing them a healthy favor right. And you're not so. How else does it add up in the day? Well if you think about just that cup of pudding as the treat when they get home from school or That just gives them another six six and a half almost six and a half teaspoons of sugar in those just to those are just two items. Haven't even hit on beverages right so you've given your child over twelve teaspoons he spins of sugar and that's twice as much as they should have in an entire day and you like many other. People Thought Flavored Yogurt was considered a health uh-huh uh-huh once again the consumer's been fooled. Ri- Some really good marketing What about the whole grain breakfast bar that you give your children as sheer here your she? They run out the door to catch us. You know. Granola bars is really just a cookie and GRANOLA really crumbled cooking and most of those granola bars have little mini dark chocolate chips in there or dried fruit that that really increase sugar or drizzled chocolate and each cereal bar has at least four teaspoons teaspoons of sugar. Would you may think that very much but that's teaspoon to teaspoons from the daily sugar recommendation and it's only seven. Am in the morning and likely weekly that sugar in the Granola Bar or the flavored yogurt or the chocolate pudding is high fructose corn Syrup and remember listeners we set high high. Fructose Corn Syrup has been shown in the research to increase inflammation and weight gain. Two things we do not want. We don't want that and there's inflammatory oils many many times in these. Let's look at chocolate milk I was working on a fitness center and after every spin class they recommended chocolate milk for the protein in the energy source. I couldn't believe it. Oh so there are two types of sugar and chocolate milk that your child drinks at school. One is naturally occurring sugar in the form of lactose toast right and the other is two and a half teaspoons of added sugar. One small carton might be okay but to Kearns gives your children five teaspoons of added sugar. You're on the other hand plane. full-fat white milk has no added sugar. It's a much much better choice and again you may be asking the question. Why are we so concerned about consuming six teaspoons of sugar or more as nutritionists and Dietitians as we know that when people are consuming more than six teaspoons of sugar daily? They're increasing that inflammation from you know small children across the lifespan now because researchers have found that eating too much sugar can raise blood pressure. It isn't too much salt. The real culprit is eating too much sugar now. Access Sugar Increases Inflammation which is another factor in heart disease. Dr Frank Hugh a well known researcher and professor at the Harvard Chan. School of Public Health reported that access. Excess sugar in the Diet.

I can't believe he said that this is this is not why there's more transgender. I can't believe even plighted or even went down that road is disgusting. I can't believe he said it and all their thinking is like what they're going to say in response. And it's like, well, let's let's let's hear everything out. And maybe we can all learn something and. You know, maybe there are maybe there are reasons. I, you know, there's there's so many things that happen in our society. The that causes giant cascade of things, you know, if you if you look at people being obese and diabetes, and heart disease and some of these things. You know, there's there's there's people are more sick now than than pretty much ever. It's it's just it's gotten to be out of hand. There's more heavy children. There's more there's more problems with all that. And then somebody might say, oh, well because it's the it's the food pyramid. It's like actually look at the food pyramid. I don't really think I don't think people are getting that fat from just doing the things that are on the food pyramid. From just having some bread and having some fruit and having some vegetables. However, we turn food pyramid into a mess because people try to profit off of it and people started kind of going that low fat route. And I don't think the low fat movement is why we're fat either. I think we got fat because people saw opportunity to make money, and they put heart healthy stuff on a thing of sugar smacks and any started doing these things because they're low fat. And then we're thinking, okay. Well, that's still even though it tastes really good. That's still good for me. It has a heart thing on it. And I'm I'm gonna go for that. And so some of those things I think did lead us. Down the wrong road. But we just eat too much. And we eat in a disgusting way. And we don't really think about it. We're not we're not conscious of it. But I I would imagine a lot of these prepackaged foods probably are full of some of these nutrients that you're talking about. Estrogens? They're not neutral.
