Is the federal government to blame for wildfires gone out of control?
"Fires on the West Coast are burning across an incredible amount of land burning added incredible scale smoke has dimmed the son in cities as far as two thousand miles away. Dozens of people have lost their lives many more have lost their belongings and their homes. The scale, the intensity and the frequency of wildfires have grown more alarming in recent years. It's clear according to fire experts that the US needs a new strategy to cope with his escalating threat. But exactly what that strategy should be is tricky to figure out. President trump has said forest management is the single solution to combating fires out West. Fall down after. A short period of time about eighteen months they become very dry they become really like a matchstick. And they get up, you know there's no more water pouring through and they become very very They explode they could explode also leaves when you have years of leaves dried leaves on the ground it just sets it up. It's really a fuel for a fire. So they have to do something about it they all he's repeatedly shrugged off warnings that human caused climate change contributes turning western states into tinder boxes. Trump's view is contrary to scientific consensus on this issue. The president's rhetoric seems to reflect a lack of agreement at the federal level around how to solve this fire problem. But how much does trump's refusal to acknowledge manmade climate change affect the country's wildfire management and response plans for that matter how much a forest management falls on the state versus the federal government? Ultimately who's responsible for preventing these wildfires from burning out of control? This is, can he do that a podcast that explores the powers and limitations of the American presidency I'm Alison Michael's A need from the states from the federal government in terms of recovery is going to continue to stack up. That's in Kim White House reporter at the Washington Post. She's been closely covering trump's response to the wildfires. Later in the show, I talked to a fire in climate expert about where responsibility lies for fire mitigation and disaster response but I I turned to sung men to explain how the president's rhetoric and Fit into the West Coast ongoing crisis. It's a devastating situation out west. There are millions of acres of that have been burned. It's about ten states out west, but it's really concentrated in California Oregon and Washington State. You have dozens of deaths and we'll be saw on the presidential front. was that President, trump traveled to California on Monday as part of a campaign swing he stopped in Sacramento to get a briefing. On these fires, it was the first time. He had really used the power of the office to bring attention to these wildfires where he had been pretty quiet on the issue until that. Yeah and this isn't the first big wildfire that's happened during the trump administration has his response been similar this time to what we've heard from him before in two, thousand, eighteen or twenty nineteen. It definitely has me on the overall issue of president trump and climate change. He has repeatedly cast doubt on the scientific consensus of man-made Climate Change and he also dismisses it in relation to these wildfires. My colleagues at the posts of obviously talked to so many experts say it is absolutely clear that hyman change is really aggravating these fires creating these conditions. Where these fires can just really get out of control quickly. But the president has repeatedly not just with these latest round of wildfires this time around. But in previous years throughout his presidency blamed forest management, he says, the mismanage forest are the main cause of why these fires are blowing out of control. Now, there is a little bit of truth to that. From the experts that we've talked to and even Governor Gavin newsom of California acknowledged that it has briefing with the President and Sacramento on. Monday, that is clearly not the whole story but trump and his typical trumpian fashion has referred to exploding trees and conversations with unnamed foreign leader saying, well, we take care of our trees so we don't have that problem. In our country and that's been where the president has been casting the blame.
How Philanthropic CEO Carmen Rojas Learned to Lead as Her Full Self
"What would you do? If you had millions of dollars at your fingertips let me clarify what would you do if your job was to take that money and spend it in ways that would make the world a better place that's the question that Carmen row house is confronted with every day. Carmen is the president and CEO of the Marguerite Casey Foundation. She stepped into the role justice cove nineteen hit, and this moment is inspiring big questions about generosity giving and the future of philanthropy. Permanent. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this. Oh thank you so much. I'm such a fan of you of your show and so I'm so glad to be here. I. Love When Interview Start That way? much of your career has focused on improving the life of working people across the country what about your own upbringing drew you to this work? My mom immigrated from Nicaragua and my dad immigrated from Venezuela they landed in San Francisco and the immigrated at this really weird moment and Hyman US history where it was the peak of the civil rights movement, the peak of the Labor movement, the peak of the feminist movement, and so my parents with middle school education's both from very rural places came to San Francisco and we're able to make lives for themselves in for us for their kids that were so far beyond the things that they could imagine. So my parents. For Middle School and I got a PhD from Berkeley I. Think a lot about how that time that my parents emigrated SOC shaped the opportunities that were available to me, and how from that moment to today we've seen that window of opportunities shut for the vast majority of people both immigrants people of Color. Native folks black people that this moment in time we were expected the squeeze the juice out of a grain of sand. And I looked around me and one. was exhausting to be one of the only women of the very few women of color one of dot of Latina's in rooms and just made it very. Sort of. Clear decision to really focus all of my energy on making sure that I'm not going to be the only one that I won't be the last generation of people that gets to benefit and enjoy from these moments in time and to try to figure out ways to create more moments in time for more of us to be better off. Growing up how was generosity displayed in your home? My mom is one of seventeen and my dad is one of ten. Seventeen all birthed by the same woman, all birth by the same woman. My mom was the first one of her siblings, the MIGRATES, united, States, and my dad was as well and so my mom tells these really amazing stories. Her siblings were sisters especially wanted to come to the United States. She would like work all day work most of the night, spend the nights like filling out immigration paperwork, taking them in for seventeen siblings and our house really became sort of a beacon I can't remember a time in my childhood where we didn't have other people living in our house. My Mom, my mom worked cleaning office buildings. She worked sewing clothes worked at last LEVI's factory in San Francisco, our? House? I feel like was what what I think is true philanthropy this desire to give this desire to open up. Some might think of yours but others think of hours so that so many more people can enjoy the ability to live lives of dignity. When did you first learn about philanthropy as a formal concept for disseminating help? Yeah. I was an Undergrad I. got this really interesting fellowship at this organization in San Francisco called the Green Lining Institute my summer project was to try to figure out in the state of California of all of these institutional donors how much of their money went to organizations led by people of Color and immigrants and it turned out these numbers haven't changed much but it's like less than five percent. and. So my job was to call us institutions to do the tally board and be like, okay, blessing one percent and it was really striking to me because philanthropy is one of those things that is benevolent and powerful we think about is inherently something good to give but we don't ever tell the back story like philanthropic institutions again, like my own are often built on twice stolen wealth wealth that's extracted from our economy on the one side and on the other side, won't that people aren't paying taxes into our social safety net into our government to actually try to resolve some of the instant issues that foundations are trying to solve. Once it became visible to me that these institutions existed that these people were giving money and that they were only giving money to sort of social service programs are to help people from the base of generosity. But these were actually shaping our political and economic experience. We can tie the rise of charter schools to philanthropy. We can tie the rise of privatizing public goods philanthropy wants it became visible to me. It was something that I couldn't unseen and I. Now am in a really interesting position because I in this moment the moment that the covert moment, the economic crisis moment, the social unrest moment. Has Really, invited me to think about philanthropy as this intermediary step

To instead of paying a thousand dollars for a new scooter David wants to tell you all about subscription. Hi David. How's it going tests you same here or tell everybody what you got. Sure. So We started Nadi about two and a half years ago. Because we felt that there was a market in this game from my own personal experience of people want to own scooters have one in their possession. It's up, rent them on the street and I got frustrated with ridesharing scooters both. From kind of a at Adnan experience, where wrote a lime scooter to a whole foods and I came out with my groceries and? was. Gone because somebody took it wrote away back and I had just bought inexpensive pint of ice cream and I ended up walking home with melted ice cream. And I thought why don't I just own one of these things like Not, not to mention the urban blight, right that the separate conversation I know you're down in. Southern California people can't hit three steps in tripping over one, right so. I just like the ownership model all. and. So we launched to ninety two years ago. Our hunch was correct. We we were selling hundreds a month, and since covid has hit, we are now showing thousands of. With folks s by coming on board to carry our scooter and new Europe Europe photographer being H Photo Outta Rama. Now Sell our scooter. Are Scooters it's the best electric. Scooter. Poured. Electric Scooter you can own this. Don't just take my word for it There's over a hundred reviews online that states the best electric scooter you could have, but it's a thousand dollars and not everyone can afford that. So we've been asking yourself, how have we reach abroad her audience? And so What is this? When is this going? Live this life when you want it to go live? So. So Logging all access is our new subscription service. It is thirty nine dollars a month. No commitment. There's a one time fifty dollars setup fee. And that's it. We bring it to Your Place Felice ambled. It's dropped off by an inaugural represented if You don't have to assemble it. Don't have to deal with the box and whenever you're done with it, we come and pick it up. But. We think that. Indian. That's New York because of the tour. Angeles in New York, city is where we're launching. Correct. If anything ever goes wrong with the scooter we at your door and under twenty four and we just hot swap another one. So you know skewed downtime. And Insurance is included. So, if anything goes wrong with the scooter, if it's stolen or any form of damage. There's an eighty, five dollar deductible. Now you said you started the company based on melted ice cream. So what happens when you ride your scooter to whole foods and walkout in walk into the store to get the Ice Cream? What do you do with your scooter that you are now subscribing to? So you can either lock it like a bicycle regular you locked works. Scooter so light I throw it in my shopping cart. That's what I did. I mean, it is. It's twenty six pounds. It's the kind of thing that you can bring it any cafe or restaurant. You know we we sell thousands a month, the normal use case with our scooters that. You take it. Everywhere you go and we really designed for portability. Normal. Users under not. Ride to. Our or a subway can take it on the subway and then pop out and take it with them. It takes up no footprint on the subway. It's got one plate folding mechanism only weighs twenty six pounds and it's you know how to arrange and it's electric. So it moves along. Nineteen miles an hour. I mean, you know it's gone incredible amount of torque because it's dual motor see can go fairly steep hills with it. And where do you make them? We make them in Shenzhen. Okay. Everything else okay. Correct. But we are in American company eight I'm proud to say, I, think out of every electric scooter company than. Scooters were the only American based electric, Scooter Company. And our customer services you incredible. So we treated like Patagonia were the only electric company that has a phone number. You can call people pick up the phone and talk to you. Now is the reason that sales went up the delete because of the maybe a lot of people don't want to take the bus and be around people and things like that. Yeah, I mean there's been this kind of seismic shift towards quota. Personal transportation people not wanting to get on public transportation, not get on ride shares, not getting share googlers, shared lifts, and so there's a real need right now you know there's especially you know New York skiers are becoming legal on Sunday. There there's you know we went volt markets to start because we couldn't choose between the two. La Is. The scooter epicenter of the planet. But L. New York's got a real need right now. So we decided to launch in. Baltimore. So. Anybody listening. We're now in the middle, the MO, the middle of summer. So when do you expect to start hitting Chicago in Boston and San Francisco and some of the other major markets? I. I'm not going to throw any any M. Any dates but those cities are are the first ones on our list. Okay. But certainly, they wanted to spend a thousand dollars you could buy you could buy one Tamar. Absolutely and you can't finance it on our website is well. But put thirty nine dollars a month into perspective. That's that's a dollar forty a day. New York subway ride today's three dollars and fifty cents for one Ri-. A rideshare scooter from lime were bird is about five bucks. So. Five dollars a ride. For. Daily commuter there's been two hundred dollars a month for grossly inferior product that half the time the batteries are dead or they're broken when you go to them not to mention the issues but share right now so. And it's yours and it's your germs and not somebody else's your germs and keep the streets clean et keeps your neighborhood looking good and it's no different for your city than owning a bicycle and you get a little bit of

How did you get into music? Wow, you know is so crazy! I actually started writing. In two thousand thirteen once I had killed. Yeah. I came graduate school I went to Yale to get my masters acting and so basically when I came of Graduate School I had a lot of time on my hands. however I was working on a show called Richard the second excuse me Richard to third at the Public And? Basically you know if you're not familiar with the public as off Broadway theatre in New York and I was cast in the show, and I just had a lot of time on my hands, and so I started to download like a lot of. Really popular industry instrumentals, and so there's a lot of artists out there that I just really appreciate and respect, so you know I was downloading like beats that Swiss beats had done for like jd kiss and whole and be here because I had this time on my hands, and I was working on a Shakespeare show.

Growing up in Philadelphia in some of the roughest areas, just being an impoverished community, and then being able to go all the way to an Ivy League institution, so. I learned a lot. In that timeframe you know, and so I just wanted to bring that to the music in India better. To uplift inspire, so you know that's where we are. Well, you know.

You simply don't go to visit your parents at all but if everybody's well I think it's up to the parents if there's a small risk but how long do you go without hugging your kids. You're so what are you doing here? You're T you're making a decision on the part of your elderly parents that you're not going to hug them to protect them but they might be prepared to take the risk. And if so why not so? I think this is a conversation. You need to have in families because it's not so much about spreading the virus. It's more about protecting them against serious illness. And if they're prepared to take the small risk you know why not but families have got to really be responsible about. No coughs colds. Sniffles slighted symptoms maximum testing particularly families. Their parents so that you know that you're you're as much as you can know that you're safe as you can be. It's funny because we've actually got quite a lot of questions along the same lines of just elderly people trying to know how to take care of themselves and rub its asking He sort of pointing at people. Seventy are at greatest risk of covid nineteen. But he saying he's feeling like this little advice that specifically for his generation he wants to know Kenny sees grandchildren. Can they visit his hyman eight with him? Can they drive them to and from school? Can I go back to work? How do these people know how to protect themselves? If they can't be informed. I mean I think it's a fair comment. The answers aren't easy because just like the previous comments have a risk based discussion and decision. So if you're over seventy and quite on well and you've got lots of other problems and you are worried about yourself. Then you wouldn't want to expose yourself very much at all. You probably want to wear a mask when you're outside even though a mask doesn't protect you as well as other people protecting themselves from spreading it but nonetheless you might want to wear a mask lots of hand hygiene and so on so if you're seventeen really healthy the still an increased risk of dying if you get covered nineteen but it depends on whether you're prepared to take that risk as an individual if the rule is in your family just repeating myself is that nobody comes to you with a call a cold. If there's any doubt toll the family gets tested then it should be no reason why you can't come round and have dinner with you at home assuming this basic hygiene driving to and from school where you probably put the kids in the back of the car anyway. So that's that's going to be okay. And you disinfect surfaces. And you have you have hand sanitizer with you and going back to work. That's a risk based decision. And if you maintain a reasonable amount of social distancing when you can if it's felt well-ventilated workplace then the risk is probably going to be relatively low but again if you've got lots of other problems if you're obese if you got diabetes heart disease and so on you've really got to think this through whether or not you're willing to take the risk. The risk is low at the moment because we got very low levels of virus. But it's there and I think now is the time when you can start easing back into things but with a lot of care a lot of care by the people around you. I think people feel like they may maybe getting mixed messages because we have another question from Lennon's that are going for kids to go to school because statistics show. They haven't been getting the virus and transmitting it to adults as much but at the same time we're being told died visit elderly grandparents for fear of spreading the disease. So he's kind of going like which one is it? Well it's it's not one size fits all here so for example residential aged care. The problem there is that as you go into the residential care facility. Your elderly relatives might be perfectly fine and well but there are other people in the facility. Who ARE REALLY SEEK. And therefore you don't want to bring in any disease or infection and that's why residential aged care facilities are being super careful. You just don't want an outbreak like the one they've seen short contact outdoors is pretty safe. Indoor contact that's prolonged. Even with social distancing can be risky. So you've got a balanced these things out but essentially grandparents in the current environment was not allow around with hand hygiene sensible disinfecting surfaces particularly in bathrooms and nobody coming close. Who's got any hint of illness and people are getting tested in the family. I think the we're getting to a point was pretty safe. So do you think that maybe it sounds like the theme? That's coming through. The what you're saying is families should be having conversations and deciding what their rules are going to be for their family. That's right and giving some autonomy to older people. There's no reason why they can't make decisions about their own lives themselves and the fair prepare to take a calculated risk. Why not it's just. He can't take a calculated risk in a residential care facility. Because you're taking a risk for other people who are not your relatives who live in the same facility so residential care. You're going to have to follow the rules of that residential aged care facility but when it's your elderly grandparents living separately from you then you should make the rules together. So Norman. Last week on chronic cost we were talking about measures that people could take to be able to basically go back on public transport. And you recommend will. You were making the comment that if ever wearing a mosque and if everyone had the carpet Saif App then maybe we could have more people in public transport. We had some feedback on that from a couple of people including Helen who says that not everyone has a smartphone especially all the people she can't actually use smut fine. Because of a hand impediment she has and she says that your suggestion is discriminatory and presumptive. Take that one on the Chin Teagan and say meal Copa. That I hadn't really thought that through in terms of order people's access to that I was kind of assuming that smartphone access was broader a shooter through. But they're still might be a way of doing it which is particularly for young people who are spreaders so for example forty percent of infections that are causing spread between twenty and forty now they will have smartphones so the question is. How do you administer something that this understand that but you could have somebody asking? Do you have a smartphone is it. They're encouraging it. You might have a washing period for example so I think even if you got that twenty to forty year old age group with the covid safe APP with high density than that would be a big step forward for what it's worth. We actually got other feedback from people who have oldest smartphones and even those people with smartphones but all the models are finding that the site. That doesn't actually work on them. I think it's quite a lot of work to be done on the covered safe at which I think I did say last week. So it's not. This is not a straightforward exercise and I thank Corona Kastner's for keeping me right on this one. Well let's talk about some research now. We are learning more way. Scientists are learning more every day. About how the virus is working in body including how to fix our immune system this new research into these which also has some implications designing treatments. Yes this research looks at how the virus gets attacked by the immune system or not as the case may be and broadly speaking. There's there's a to phase response to There's an earlier response of the immune system. There's a slightly later response of the immune system to a viral infection and viruses. Incredibly clever getting round this. I mean for a little thing of that doesn't actually live by itself. Just a little bundle of irony doesn't by itself needs our bodies to replicate it. Devises fiendishly clever ways of getting round our immune system and so what what they're discovering with this forest and they've never seen it seen it to the same extent with other viruses. Is that when it gets? Into the cell it really inhibits the chemical messengers alert the immune system these are called interferon so these are the chemical messengers that tell the immune system. Something's going wrong here. Come on guys and gals get in here and start attacking and whistling the army so it suppresses these interferons and then the second response is actually an over an overactive response but it's a dysfunctional one terribly. Clever response on the part of the virus but it is a serious respond. Swear it interferes with the jeans in the second wave of response. These are called site kinds and some people that have heard of the site. Kind storm that you get. Which is what largely kills you with the COVID. Nineteen seventy makes you seriously ill now. What this means is there's an opportunity in this first response. So for example there already finding indications that interferon treatment for a covert nineteen does seem to be helping particularly in combination with antivirals or other medications and this makes sense when they started using it own with covid nineteen. They didn't know the results of the study. But this was study shows. The interferons are very low. So in fact you're replacing them and then also now that you know more about the site of kind response. There are some targets there that you can use to block that response which again. They're already trialing but it allows you to do that more effectively. So you get a sense. Where if you really do attack the virus and its effects in that first episode you're going to help minimize the reaction the second episode as well because it won't get a chance to whistle up. This overreaction
How COVID-19 Shines A Light On Our Broken Food System with Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian
"We want to talk today about what seems to be unrelated to Cova Nineteen which is an infectious disease but it's diet and chronic disease and you wrote an article with the former secretary of agriculture. Dan Glickman that was posted on. Cnn entitled Can Diet Flatten the curve for covert nineteen and it's sort of like How does that even make sense? So we've heard all about these ideas of fighting. The curb was social dissing handwashing washing and contact tracing an isolation testing but your article presented a very different view about how we can use food and nutrition and specific nutrients to actually help us address. This pandemic so. Can you tell us why you wrote this article and why this is more important than ever to address these issues? Yeah I think markets really clear that that to those of US following this crisis that cove nineteen has really laid bare these incredible challenges. These incredible disparities is incredible unreasonable aspects of our food system. Are there so many ways that that covered nineteen influenced student? Nutrition and nutrition Kobe. Nineteen back up at at all. Just go through quickly and we can go about each of them so you know. One is immunity the actual immune response to Cova and then you actually the blunting of the excessive inflammatory response to cove. We can talk about nutrition and actually the immune response to is is hunger and food insecurity which of course 'cause incredible human suffering with this economic shutdown lost wages at schools being closed but also we know from long clinical experience malnourishment further predispose people to infection. So that's the site and that doesn't mean and that doesn't mean skinny and wasted away could be that your nutrient deficient which is really common in America. Absolutely absolutely. There's one call hidden hunger. People look like they're getting food but there's hidden hunger because they're not getting the right the right nutrients and what's paradoxical is the most obese are often the most nutrient deficient when you look at their numbers. Right it's kind of interesting. Yeah and then. These other aspects of Kobe crucial to to you know of just quickly mention our third. The incredible intersections supply chains and food. Waste and getting food to people we. We don't really have a national food system even global food system. We have this fractured supply chain. That's now becomes you know very very dire And then I think one of the one of the most important things for really thinking about covert long term. Because this is going to be with us for for some time. Many ears is the incredible relationship between for Metabolic Health Diabetes Hypertension Heart Disease Obesity and poor outcomes with Cova. The the latest analysis from New York which has had the most cases in in the United States showed that with each of those conditions diabetes hypertension of city. There is about two or three full higher risk two to three times higher risk of hospitals. And if you put those three things together lots of people have diabetes hypertension and obesity. There be sixteen fold higher risk of hospitalization. And so it's very it's very plausible. And we're modeling this now. It's very plausible. That you know. If we had a metabolic healthy population job it would be much much less severe. And so you know thinking about nutrition and immune response malnourishment and hunger and food insecurity disparities very high rates and african-americans very likely related to nutrition in a major way the challenges to food systems and supply chains food waste and then metabolic health. You know these are all things that that you and I and others who study food at about that that food nutrition or a dire challenge and an incredible opportunity to improve the health of the population but Kobe. Nineteenth really liked taking a you know a knife and slice down dessert that was hiding immediate objects and so you know if five years from now we're back to where we were a couple years ago and there's no improvement in our food system quality of the food the way we get it to people in science that we have to address questions. I would be just devastated. I would be so disappointed that we haven't realized the opportunity here to fix the food system. So filming in the straight. What you're saying is that if you have chronic diseases and multiple chronic diseases that your risk of being hospitalized sixteen times higher that if you're metabolical unhealthy more likely to get sick because your immune system isn't working and then only twelve percent of us are actually healthy so that means if we actually had a healthy population that was eating a diet that created metabolic health instead of the opposite. Which we're doing now that this may just be a bad flu and we wouldn't have full hospitals in a society that shutdown and trillions of dollars in economic losses. All the evidence supports that you know. Of course we can't do a randomized trial and wave a wand and make everybody know about healthy to test that but all the evidence suggests that you know as you said. I'm based on national data. Only twelve percent of adults in this country are metabolic Healthy that's just taking things like waste. Your Conference Blood Glucose blood pressure cholesterol. It just measure those things. Only twelve percent of adults or metabolic be healthy and most of those people in their twenties right. You haven't yet really had a lifetime of for die in for lifestyle. And so the vast vast majority of American adults over forty are metabolic late unhealthy and given these associations you know as I mentioned even just one of these risk factors. You're doubling or tripling the risk of hospitals ation and you start piling up together In terms of risk of death is in so few debts especially under age. Seventy unless there's at least one of these other conditions. Yeah and so. It's very plausible. That if we had a very healthy population you know. Instead of a twelve percent medically healthy. We had twelve percent metabolic the unhealthy. What if nine of were metaphor healthy then in nineteen would be a far far less severe disease? Many many fewer hospitalizations fewer deaths. We wouldn't be shutting down the economy we wouldn't have. These hospitals overloaded our healthcare providers but insulted dangerous petit and working chefs on an and. What's really important here is that we can actually fix this now in real time. And so you know. It doesn't take years and years and years to reverse diabetes or to reverse hypertension or Reverse for metabolic health. Yeah does take years and years to change. Wait for many people but metabolic health. Whatever your weight. We can pretty rapidly improving. Edibala cal over months sometimes even shorter. But so yeah so the country. In addition to the things that we're doing social distancing and testing we should be launching a national campaign to improve the way we move and eat to improve our metabolic health
Why Food Is More Powerful Medicine Than Drugs with Maggie Ward
"Tell us a little bit about this first patient that you've had that you wanted to share a little bit about what their struggle with a rate. You know these this case I picked it because it's fairly common to what we see. I mean we see a little bit of everything especially the ultra wellness center but it gets a kind of common theme especially for people that come to see me just burned nutritional nutritionist. So this woman she says sixty four year old woman who I've been working with for a while Dealing with a weight gain. That was one of her main concerns. I mean mild about twenty pounds overweight and it came on around menopause for her ambitious. Had a very long history of reflects had been onto our birthright Harper Harper now called reflects the whole industry of drugs and it's like the third most commonly prescribed class of drugs out there with the acid blocking drugs. Little Per Bay right and many you can get right now over the counter to some people are taking it. You know even without a doctor's prescription and You know sometimes needed for short term but unfortunately a lot of people have been these medications a long time and I think you know we see the the negative impact that so much at our center so she in a shed a long history of the reflex in also dealing with lower energy She's been on many diets which we hear so often people come to us trying many many different things in the common theme here as the way beating. This wasn't sustainable. And obviously we use the word. Diet you know just to kind of have that language. But I really don't like that word because I think we tend to think of food is lacking white. We're either on a diet off diet and initially might be asking people to walk a kind of a finer line with the food choices to get them dealing better winter but ultimately eating whole foods. Kind balancing those macronutrients eating every maybe four hours once you. You're eating during the day. I mean those are things that you Kinda WanNa make your lifestyle and that's ultimately what we really talked about is. How do you make the sustainable reflects cases so common? You know the number one reason that people go to the doctor in America is for digestive problems and reflexes. Right up there among them. So what are the causes that you see Maggie for Harper and reflex which is so common in our patient population in the country? I think it's multiple things. I mean from a dietary standpoint when we know a lot of the foods that can cause indigestion. Reflux dairy is a gluten so big one so we do a lot focusing on taking out those foods at might be more more irritant to the guide in front like allergies true allergies may be sensitivities were sensitivities. Exactly I mean. People do definitely have true allergies by at what we see is just different ways your immune system can react even intolerances where you just don't digest the food while dairies. A good example that were lactose eventually gives everyone issue and it can cause things that reflects in voting gas. So that stuff's subway gonNA mean obsolete working with providers doing more testing around breath testing and stool tests and get a sense of disposes. It's a very common thing that we see. What's this bio suit me as win your bacteria's at a balance in your body and also can often be in the wrong plates in your usual right right in your gut. Many people what we see they had small Hessel. Bow Overgrowth what we call the CBO bacteria and even used to move further up into the Upper Gi and doubling caused a lot of distress. They're normally normally. There's a lot of bacteria in your lower intestine. Your but not so much in your small intestine you've got twenty. Two feet of small intestine starts at the end of your stomach. In when the bacteria migrate up for different reasons motilal issues low magnesium strasse whatever you end up with this overgrowth of bugs in small intestine and someone. The food hits there it should be. It should be sterile. But when activity in there? They they go to town right. They go to town and they ferment. The starchy foods that you're eating and you get this thing called the food baby. Everybody knows that that is you eat. And you get this bloating. This come for That's called CBO. Which very horrible condition it. So many people suffer from right right and that's still people I mean. All bacteria produce gas. It's one thing it's down your coal in any current lease it when it's in your upper gi making 'cause a lot of discomfort so we see that a lot anything that is again a big a big issue with the reflux also mobility issues. I work with a lot of people talking about how you eat slowing down chewing food while doing some deep belly breathing before you eat. Takhar relax bagel nerve that runs along the whole digestive track. I think that goes a long way. I've had multiple people. Tell me just by slowing down and chewing. Better reflects gone on a lot of. What was your stress sympathetic? Nervous system is your fight or flight nervous system and one of the things does is shut down your digestive system because when you're running from a sabertooth tiger you don't want to be digesting your food. You want all the blood to build your muscles and and be able to run as fast. You can't so that's what happens when you eat under stress and this is this is why these practices. You're talking about deep breathing. Taking pause called. Take five take take five breasts before every meal and see what happens It's a very powerful reset in fact what was interesting when I was writing my book. Ultra metabolism. I found that there was this paper that showed that the sympathetic nervous system attack connects to the fat cells. So this is the stress response And and when you're stressed it inhibits the fat cells metabolism so literally slows your metabolism so being stressed literally Metabolism make you gain weight
COVID-19, Chinas wet markets, and bats - is it US not THEM?
"And now we see Larry's outbreaks in the last few decades that are related to animal eating in China. What happens in China? What people do to animals in China how repercussion beyond Chinese border? Let's Professor Deborah Jar. She's author of animals in China Law and society and we're going to take a close look at the animals that find themselves in China's wet markets today and into the curious origins of this Almighty pandemic. I have to side. It's beyond anything that I could have imagined. It really is at bats. Worst CASE SCENARIO SCOTT AS FAR as I'm concerned and that's from someone who's worked in the area and someone is trying to increase the awareness that this kind of thing would happen. It seems to have happened so rapidly and we seem to have been totally unprepared for it. She infield he's with the echo health alliance as their science and Policy Advisor for China and Southeast Asia regions eventually and environmental scientist. Hey knows he's infectious diseases. And he's Bet Corona viruses. He's an international authority on them which is why he is quick to discredit conspiracy theories swirling around about the origins of the SARS Cov virus. That's caused this cove. Nineteen pandemic one being that it came from the Wuhan Institute Veraldi Attain Hayes. Worked closely alongside. There was a big a lot of discussion about conspiracy theories either about manufacturing losses biowarfare about escapes from large raise. Excetera truth is trying to fiction. We we don't need to manufacture this far as it exists in Niger. As is from my scientific point of view that argument that it's manufactured bars has been tightly discredited winsor Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome first appeared in two thousand and two in China human was part of the international team. That did that hard. Detective work the years to trace its origin back to a corona virus in beds and the team's been surveying and identifying Bet Corona viruses across China saints. The size called to virus is ninety. Six percents SIMILAC genetically to about corruption virus working with Salads and with colleagues in China. I had the opportunity to see how intelligent how how technically skilled however principled. My colleagues in China were Humza signatory to erase it later. In The Lancet Medical Journal expressing solidarity with China's scientists and concern that conspiracy theories are threatening the rapid open and transparent sharing of data on the covered nineteen at break on people. Say yes but it's Johnny's system which autocratic I can be my to do it etc I nine principles about fats. Those people in that lab at on. We'll be working flat out around. The clock does manual. It comes with his ours. You know you've got to start from scratch stopped from nearest point of knowledge songs develop diagnostics tried to treatment methodologies. That'll be working flat out getting pulled in every direction. Trying to get on top of this thing. That's ahead stop. But where the virus got. It's real headstart. Perhaps OVER MILLENNIA. Ease in bats and scientists have benches with bats have taken him all over the place. All over Italy David Heymann is professor of Infectious Disease Ecology at Massey University in New Zealand. And Yeah some people selling hundreds of back carcasses who to Yeah people wearing Jin as a libation. A bill offering to the bats in a cave. And there's no doubt about it is that's the galling but what I want to know is why beds in particular how the so many viruses that are so deadly to us and yet not to them and to do that. We need to get denied. That's a bit better which Mike Up About. A fifth of the world's Mammalian species the phenomenal mammals. Actually they're the only mammals that truly fly the evolutionary. Oh they've been around many tens of millions of years from fossil records. Basically they live live everywhere on earth really apartment article so that enthused New Zealand out here Hawaii three to take so they're very well adapted the lots of different spaces and the really good for the environment. So for example predation pests. They prevent crop and forest damage. Because I eating insect predators suck the hugely ecologically important. Certainly the the fruit eating bats are great seat disperses Italy to see elite fruit the C. Pass through the bat schedule intestinal system and then it puts it out in a new location. So that helps maintain I. They also pollinate Important crops because revolved for so long. There are many plants for example rely on best to do the pollination and all the seed dispersal for them. David Hyman Ward. Mike's bats such a distinct. Such prime reservoir for novel viruses that can then subsequently crossover and infect other animals than they known to humans. What is it about the laugh of bets and better species so there are many hypotheses one is just the sheer diversity of bats around the world so therefore they have a diverse range of ours is and we think that they've been around for a long time cheaply long lived species relatively speaking and I will live for years and tens of years. Not like rodents that live within a year. They're gone. They will like humans in cities. I mean they form very dense colonies with thousands in a small space so that's ideal for infection spill to transmit from one individual to another Peter Virus Heaven and what's more abet colony might contain multiple bat species so viruses can adapt and crossover between them. He catching a ride when the bats migrate onwards so then they concede infection into new columnist. These multiple networks and communities about spending vast lots of different viruses between them probably lead to them being great host for these viruses. You look at the things I well I if Laras then this is way are would do well it. All of this going from built the interaction. The numbers I felt the citizens either Tom etc etc and the range of viruses bets carry all that originated in bats is mind blowing. Yeah there's extra diversity and it's not just trying of ours. Is that seems to be the same for paramedics of our season. Rabies probably had bats and even things like measles and canine distemper virus. Which we now and paper will be familiar with. Lissa viruses herpes to ebola influenza. A Hendra Nipah that most viruses. That bets incubate don't seem to make bets seek rabies. Seems to be one of the notable exceptions. Why don't they get seek? You didn't quite a really hard to study some of the hypotheses of that because bats have evolved to repair the muscles for example that the tissues that damage during his flight is really intensive. They vote repair. Mechanisms enable them to repair cells for example and versus damaged cells and. There's lots of consequences to that. That doesn't tell the entire story. They ran the immune system. That means that they. They seem to have constant arts they. Immune system switched on during the dice and also they. They fly everyday that I get the core body. Temperatures are effectively. What we do if we're sick and feverish so if you can imagine that we as mammals we have to similar response when rail one hypothesis is that when we do our normal response to viral infections. Then actually these viruses evolved in that sort of environment. And they don't mind so they carry on replicating the things that we do to suppress viruses don't suppress the bat farces. But that's just one. Hypothyroidism is a few others clever little biological systems in a molecular clock analysis that said that Corona viruses and bats had been coexisting for at least ten thousand news probably hundreds of thousands of years and possibly millions of years so these are very robust and sort of long term. Evolution are of these farces within spats and the issue is not about changing to become infectious. Hatha generate to patriots getting from bad to the purse on Wallis taking him. Bats doing their own thing. There's no pro-woman's each bridge what we call an epidemiological bridge wants that bridges. Creator so the agent can get from the reservoir to the purse. So you pay. That's when the trouble starts and there is a perfect place for that Epidemiological Bridge to be built.
What to Eat to Manage Anxiety
"Today? We want to start the show by reading a couple of statements from Dr Mark Kinds new book. It's called food. What the Heck should I cook? You may have heard of his other book food. What the heck should I eat now? He has one about cooking before we do that. I'll just quickly introduce myself and our topic. My name is Kara carper. I'm a licensed nutritionist. And I have a master's degree in holistic health and I'm a certified nutrition specialist. Today's topic is what to eat to manage anxiety. I know this topic very well. If anyone knows me you may know that I have struggled with anxiety but also it's because every day I work to practice what I'm eating to manage anxiety since the corona virus outbreak. It seems that nearly everyone's anxiety level is off the charts absolutely. It almost feels like our world has been turned upside down while it sort of has and people who are anxious before are now are there now. Highly anxious I would say. They're even scared definitely scared. I think there's a lot of fear worry and anxiety coin on and today we want to share some food and nutrition habits that will support your nervous system in your brain function. And we're also going to talk about some foods that might be interfering with calming your nervous system and your brain function so we have a lot of work cut out for us today and I would also I also want to introduce my wonderful co host. And we'll go ahead and get started. Caroline Hudson is with me. She's a registered and licensed Dietitian. She's a many years of experience working with clients of all ages and a variety of health issues. While good morning everyone you know. Also since the corona virus outbreak more and more people are concerned about trying to maintain a very strong immune system in Dr Mark. Hyman new book food. What the heck should I cook he wrote? Science confirms that Poor Diet can create poverty violence and social injustice due to its effect on behavior. Isn't that interesting? That's very interesting. I don't think a lot of people think of food in that way as as having any influence on those aspects right behavior so it is clear that each of us has a different immune system and our daily food. Choices are a key factor in maintaining a strong immune function boyd. We ever need this information today. Don't we so? There are several possible reasons for having a lower functioning immune system so some of those reasons may be ongoing stress or eating a poor diet. Obesity lack of sleep. Oh I don't know about you but I've been a little bit struggling with sleep or lack of physical activity. All gyms are close so we gotta get out there and do some do some good activities. Right don't walking at least so or not eating sufficient amounts of protein. What we're trying to say is to have a strong immune system you need to address all of these aspects of your health. Your immune function is so much more than just taking a little extra vitamin C. Isn't that true? I mean if you're not sleeping and you're eating poorly you're highly stressed and not able to exercise or you have to hear your gym clothes and you haven't figured out another routine taking vitamin C. Is kind of. It's kind of pointless you kind of you can't supplement your way out of a guy and lifestyle right. Yeah I think one of Dr Hammond's most powerful in meaningful statements in his book was what we put on our fork at every meal either has the power to transform our health and the economy reverse climate change and environmental damage and help reduce poverty violence social injustice and more and you know really the caroline again. That's a new thought. But how we how we eat really affects our brain chemistry our moods or behaviors and just kind of how we go about our life. Yeah I'd like put at what we put on our full. Yeah right right really should be thinking about at every single time. You put your phone to something. Am I helping? My Body is supporting my body. And my brain hurting it
You Shouldn't Need a PhD in Nutrition to Read a Food Label
"If you care about what's in your food you should listen closely to this conversation because it's about the food and Drug Administration on how asleep at the wheel in protecting us from harmful chemicals and antibiotics and even bad nutrition information now. The FDA regulates food labels which is a prime example of how the agency fails the public there the liberally misleading and confusing which serves the interests of big food. But not the rest of us a Jerry Mandy. Who is now professor Tufts Nutrition who was key part of the administration in the Obama Administration worked on food labels at the FDA and the USDA any said food companies. Don't want you to know what's in their products so they deliberately make their ingredients hard to read a lot of companies. Use All capital letters squishing. Together he's very small font size. Maybe one sixteenth of an inch ladder the results. Are you look at most food packages? And it's hard to read the ingredient list They're also required these companies to list the ingredients in order of their predominance. But that doesn't tell you how much is in the package. For example is sugar is the second ingredient list on the package. It doesn't tell you if it's thirty percent or five percent. Have you ever picked up? A jar of strawberry jam. Supermarket looked at what's in. It jarred smucker Strawberry Jam Lewis Strawberries at the first reading. Okay sounds good in the second. Third and fourth ingredients are high fructose corn syrup Corn Syrup and sugar now. This is a very common tactic. Which is they create different kinds of sugars which they don't have to list sugar as the number one ingredient which it actually is we know from investigations that these companies often use five different sugars in their products. So they don't show high on the list and you shouldn't have to have a PhD in nutrition and biochemistry to understand a food label. Which kind of do now. Even I have studied these. For years I understand attrition deeply. I mean it's a little confusing. I mean what's a gram of sugar? I don't know well I know it's four grams per teaspoon but most people don't know and many things are on labels that don't make any sense to well things like mono and Douglas Rides Carrageenan Maltodextrin. Soy Levinson's it's in everything. These most fires and additives are big warning. Sign to drop the package
What Is Leaky Gut And How Can You Treat It? with Dr. Elizabeth Boham
"Day. We're going to talk about leaky gut. Which is something that is starting to be in the awareness of traditional medicine but they still don't have a clue how to diagnose it and how to treat it so tell us I what is leaky gut. Yeah so so. Many people are like saying the word leaky gut leaky gut. But officially right the official medical term is increased intestinal permeability and I love to draw picture for all my patients when they come in to really show them what we mean by increased intestinal permeability in the limoges good. I don't know I'm still drawn each side mirrors smart so we know there's this one cell layer right there's that one cell layer the end of the Vienna. Theam that divides the inside of the intestine. Right so where. The food is and all sorts of other things the protest. Gi Tract is a tube outside of your body right. I mean it's a protected to put food in Santa comes out the other side and literally like not really part of your body in the sensitive stuff inside is yet in your body. So but there's that cell layer that has to determine what should come into my body right and what shouldn't what's been properly digested food you know has this. Has this protein been broken down enough yet? should this come in. Should they should. I absorb this or should stay out to that filter coffee filter. You don't want the grounds getting your coffee but drain the good stuff getting it and that sort of how you're supposed to work. That's that's great. Yeah cousins like you have holes in your coffee filter and stuff leaks through right. And why is that a problem right because that stuff leaking through? That might be a food particle. That's not digested enough yet. Or it could be a bacteria or a bug a fungus or something. That's shouldn't be getting into the body. Some of the not so good bacteria and and when when those things that they get into the body when they're not supposed to then they can trigger all sorts of other symptoms in the body and that might be symptoms of inflammation. So somebody might feel like joint pain or asthma congestion. It may trigger and there's been a lot of studies to show this. It can trigger auto immunity rights all kinds of our Mallika. But we know what's interesting? Is that most diseases. That are chronic. Diseases are inflammatory diseases heart. Disease Cancer Diabetes Alzheimer's Stroke. I mean these are all inflammatory diseases. Even depression is inflammatory disease of the brain. Add is inflammation of the autism summation of the brain. And so. What's really interesting about this gut issue? Is that when the barrier breaks down? And you'll basically like An area the size of a tennis court if you're out flat and it's like you know one. Celtic so you basically went cell away from sewer you know on the other side important salary and that can get damaged when that does things leak in like you said and you've got sixty percent of your immune system right under that layer Which then reacts to whatever's coming through this supposed to come through so your body's actually doing its job creating inflammation Yup. It's just that your guts leaky getting it shouldn't be getting it right. And then and then you start to not feel so good like you mentioned fatigue or brain fog or or joint pain or swelling in the body. We see a lot of people holding onto water or or swelling or congestion. Asthma and then that whole cycle of auto immunity also. Yeah so it's it's really You know one of the most prevalent problems and so why are we having all this leaky gut right? That's a great question right and it's so much because of our crummy food supply. What do we know about that to me? I food supply that we've been putting a bunch of pesticides and antibiotics into which is just shifting our micro biota and life. Assi from the Round Up the weed killer. That's almost are. Gmo foods and even wheat products and is one of the biggest damages of your microbiome. Forget that it causes cancer whether you can argue that or not but it does disrupt your microbiome right right and you know we of course are trying as physicians not to prescribe as much antibiotics for our patients but so many of us have taken unfortunately too many antibiotics and then our food supply right. You know we're using so much antibiotics and our food supply to grow bigger cows for example. And that's just shifting our whole that whole macrobiotic in our gut. It's true and I I read a paper recently about Emulsifiers and food which is using all processed food to make dick or solidify it. Hold it together. And these Mosa fires like Karen Gina and anthem gum and even the microbial translate Tammy's which is basically bacteria made gluten can believe that and the reasons call. Gluten is because it's like glue make things together make the food stick together right but is highly damaging to the gut and you've got all these processed food ingredients in food that are linked to auto immunity. Yep Right so it's not even a and then of course the starch and the sugar the process oils all damage your gut. And then of course the lack of Fiberg lack of phytochemicals in our diet right. You'd foods prebiotic foods probiotic foods like Sauerkraut for lunch yesterday. I mean we don't need that stuff and it's so important we've seen so much damage to our gut because of all these various factors in our diet and then of course there's an acid blockers that we take for everything anybody because you mentioned hormones can mess up your gut bacteria. Steroids can do it and she ended up with. Antibiotics obviously ended up with this horrible cascade of people with gut issues. It's the number. One reason people go to the doctor much of it now. It's it's crazy isn't it? I mean it's so many people are coming in with with digestive issues with And symptoms of inflammation in their body. But it's it's really common even people coming to US for other reasons. We're seeing okay. It's the guy we've got to start with the guy and and pay attention to what's going on there. We'll flexible. Medicine has been thinking about this for decades microbiome revolution restocking about it. This huge industry development around and there was talking about probiotics and that and we've been focusing for decades on the simple fact that most of our chronic illnesses start in the gut asking whatever the name of the problem you have whether it's Migraines or whether it's depression or whether it's diabetes or obesity rate or autism or whatever you gotta start with the GUT and and traditional medicine like leaky God is not a thing like you go to the doctor if you ever arthritis and I'm like how's your gut cardiology. How's your gut? Even though there's so much research showing the connection you don't get train. Right is just huge gap. Right now where. The science has advanced so far but the practice hasn't right and in functional medicine. We've been really great at actually getting the memo that the GUT is at the center of our health. Right so for years ray we. We've learned about that five. Our program with functional medicine and how helpful that can be to heal the digestive system and then and then he'll all these symptoms or diseases that somebody has means amazing. I'm talking to the CEO. Cleveland Clinic recently and was telling me about studies that he'd heard about that had used fecal transplants in autistic kids and taking the poop out of a healthy kid and put a million autistic kid and the kid autism goes away. It's phenomenal. I mean that's not true for all kids with autism. But it's funny. Yes it's amazing transplants from people who are thin to people who are diabetic and their blood. Sugar gets better right. I mean I had a guy once who was a really great patient and he was very poorly controlled diabetic on lots of medications and we worked on. His Diet helped a lot to down from two hundred to like the one twenty or so we can get it all the way down with a really good diet and exercise and he was telling me he had a bunch of digestive issues. And so I said you know. Why don't you take some charcoal and do this and do that? And he called me back. He says I don't happen but my lectures went to ninety S. We absorbed all the toxic crap in his gut that was causing inflammation that was causing his blood sugar and bounce and these are the kinds of things that we do every day in functional medicine but that are not part of traditional care and people are missing out on right right. When we're saying why is that. Why is this going on? How do we get underlying cause for that individual
"hyman" Discussed on The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.
"Today Good Morning America the view and CNN. He's also an adviser and Guest Co host on the Dr Oz. Show if you've been following functional medicine for any length of time. I'm sure you know about Dr Mark. Hyman he is really one of the modern pioneers of this movement. And perhaps more responsible for advancing functional medicine As a concept and as a practice in any other person in the world. Today we're GONNA be talking about his new book food fix which I believe is one of the most important books that's been written in the century that may seem a little hyperbolic. But I think you'll agree with me By the end of this podcast food fix really focuses on the systemic problems in our food system and how they contribute to chronic disease epidemic. And I've often said before that health is not just an individual endeavor. We really have to address the systemic problems that contribute to ill health. And that's really what Mark's new book food fixes about so without further ado let's dive in mark and my friend such a pleasure to have you back on the show. Welcome thanks so much for having Me Grist. That is an important subject. We gotta talk about this but we both care so much about and I'm so excited to share this with you and your your community. Yes as I said in the INTRO. I think this is possibly one of the most important books that has been written and will be written in this century and that may sound hyperbolic for some people but given the scale of the challenge. We're and I know you saw this. This study published last week marks predicting now that one and two Americans will be obese by the year. Twenty thirty and one in four will be severely obese which is a whole new category. We've had to create So this is really like an existential threat that we're facing on the same level of climate change and other things that seriously threatened the future of humanity. And as you and I both talked about before. Health is not just an individual choice or an individual endeavor. It's really a a society wide effort we need to mate so so. Let's talk a little bit more about that. I know you mentioned in the book. That diet is now the number one cause of death in the world so maybe we could start there. Yeah well thanks Chris. I think that what you said was really important. Which is it's it's about Z's by you mentioned on the scale things like climate change. But what really? It was clear to me after working on this walking practicing medicine Everything's connected that. Our food system as a whole is probably the biggest driver of most of our Global. Crises obviously chronic disease. We're getting to that economic burden of it. We talked about you. Know How in the book To manicured when when federal dollars will be for Medicare within five years? Nothing crazy and it's getting worse It's the number one driver. Climate change environmental degradation loss of our soil. Our water resources adversity. It's the biggest driver. Social injustice is a huge contributor poverty and violence mental health issues not to mention his performance security so this is really one issue that if we pull the thread we talk naked and the good news is by working on fixing the food system. We can solve all these problems. That's really critical point. I don't think many people really consider that when they're making choices about food that it's it's not just a question of nutrition. I mean we. Of course everyone's familiar with all the debates about what diet is best low carb low fat plant-based Paleo Egan Cetera But we often don't think of the fact that our food choices are also political social economic and environmental acts. You know it's it's not just about what we eat from nutritional perspective every time we put something in your mouth were essentially making a vote on all of these global issues that we're facing it's so true and I think I think that is both a caring dot powering hot because we actually understand the impact of our choices and our behaviors and we also understand the linkages to what's going on our policies than it's very empowering thought I can be part of the solution and also realized that it has to happen on a bigger scale and I think so. The bulk really lays out not just sokol food apocalypse which you could easily been call. It's called food six maps out the solutions for citizens businesses and policymakers to fix the problem. And it's going to require a significant level awareness. People really understand these problems and linkages is I. Don't think most policymakers do I ever example. Spent two hours on a boat this summer with a united senator and use a very hope and interesting guy and huge unaware of these unaware of these connections and now sort of struck by out. Wait a minute the guys who are making our Ossete are not aware that these are the issues that we have to face. They're all dealing with them in silos. Safavid SORTA like functional medicine for the Food System as opposed to all these separate different issues. One issue you get to the root cause you can really solve them right. Yeah that's why I'm so excited about this book because I think a lot of people aren't aware it's just not on their radar. It's not something they're thinking about. And so this book and then the campaign that's associated with it which I want to talk about a little later. I think is really going to help. bring this forward in the into people's awareness and make it as big of an issue in terms of the public consciousness as it really deserves to be a needs to be. If we're going to address these challenges we're facing. I mean let's talk a little bit about the food system and Diet and their contribution to this epidemic of obesity and chronic disease. That is now literally crippling our. You know our healthcare system or are sick care system depending on what you want to call it not just here in the US but now worldwide and is going to lead to fifty trillion dollars of expenditure to treat chronic disease just in in the next twenty years and possibly bring down governments and economies all around the world so it starts with food. It's completely true and I think if we look at some of the new data using our smoking or whatever turns out that according to the global burden of disease study a hundred ninety five countries that lack of good foods and too much bad foods kills over eleven million people. I think. That's an underestimate. Actually start to look at the other. Chronic diseases that are causing the die in the add them all up and you see ause by food like diabetes and heart disease and other things is probably upward a forty or fifty million people in year. Three quarters of all desolate planet are contributed to her. 'cause by our food our ultra processed food in the author food or eating is sixty percent of our allies corn wheat and soy turning all kinds of factory-made science projects and every ten percent of your diet the comes from processed food. Your risk and debt is up by fourteen percent and decide effective. That is huge economic. You mentioned fifty trillion. If not how you slice and dice ID According to macroeconomic analysis the the cost to our society in both direct indirect cost is going to be ninety five trillion dollars over the next thirty years. Disappointing perspective that's annual amount. That's ninety one percent of the total tax by the US government so it's really much more than GDP the sixth largest economies of the world. And yes and also. It's probably more. That amount is more than the total economy in the world. You had. It'd be over thirty five years but I you know just things like Medicare Trust. Fund is going to run out of money in five years by twenty twenty. Five forty percent are mandatory. Federal spending will be for Medicare which means there's like half money left everything else and it's not sustainable and we know that the food over eating is so nutrient depleted that it is so inflammatory so toxic microbiome so toxic to our brain chemistry. I sell inflammatory. That it's driving all these other issues which isn't just obesity diabetes heart disease. It's affecting our kids academic performance. You know we're thirty first in the world in math and reading and our kids are struggling with. Add and behavior issues on the data on a striking do not violence violence is connected to food but in violent prisoners in prison giving them a healthy diet reduced violent crime by fifty. Six percent added a multivitamin reduce it by eighty percent and same thing with kids in juvenile detention centers behaviors reduced by ninety one percent of Restraints by seventy five percent oppositional behavior dramatically lower suicide one hundred percent drop in suicide and these kids in this one. Study thousand kids were they swap not healthy for the bad food of these centers huge impact on our electoral capital on emotional capitals on the divisiveness nursing society. I mean we think. Why is our society so divided? Why are we having so much conflict in politics even nutrition? Diet Wars Thinks Camper total distraction from what we really need to be focused on totally and and part of the problem. I'm David permettre my podcast talking about the effects of inflammation on the brain in decoupling the limbic system from the frontal what that means is you have a fighter flight reptile brain your Lizard Brain which is the all brains and not great at making good decisions except saving your life and your lobe. Which is the adults in the room? So if you have an emotional reaction response and you get activated. You can't really control which is why there's so much Device behavior wire decisions or soda or and I. It was sort of a strengthening another striking fact from David modernising son wrote this book brainwash about how our food is driving behavioral issues and emotional conflict stuck in our limbic system in the amid. Love running the show rather than our frontal cortex Dacca Yeah. Let's talk a little more about kids because this is something. We're both passionate about How the food industry preys on children specifically you know. It's it it preys on everybody but it. The the effects are especially insidious with kids. So you know. Let's talk a little bit about those tactics and how we can address that Starting with young kids in schools and cafeterias in the food that they're served and so huge You know obviously kids are sicker and battering. Remember those at one overweight kid in your class growing up. One kid was at behavioral and she now wanted kids have G. and forty percents of overweight and obesity mason triple since the nineteen seventies at one and three kids overweight. Or I mean that's pretty striking and he wanted for teenagers as tech diabetes or prediabetes which is really crazy. Ain't never saw that when I was growing up. And you see the fast infiltrating schools in dramatic ways one. Not You know what's going on is like Yuki percent of schools. They have fast food serve in the cafeteria like McDonald's Monday Taco Bell Tuesday Wendy's Wednesday and these kids get to eat There's incredible abundance of processed foods and then marketing. These kids from schools at all the advertising goes in from soda companies the big food companies. That is driving their behaviors on their choices. I mean they now you know Coca Cola. Ads in the in the locker rooms in the toilet stalls in the bathrooms. So there's a lot of good things that happened for example trying to solve that with the healthy hunger. Free Kids Act that Michelle Obama champion and she tried to mandate one hundred thousand. Public Schools provide healthier foods and improve the nutrition standards. But it didn't really go far enough right used. You still begin all kinds of junk in there now. Unfortunately the the the trump administration is rolled back a lot of those guidelines in the kids. Aren't eating food throwing it out. I mean they were. They were one hundred eleven food companies. Trade GROUPS INSPIRATIONS. At lobbied on this bill and it was putting into play as a group called the School Nutrition Association with. Sounds Really Nice you want all. The groups have those kinds of misleading names. Right it's like an industry funded a lobby group at Kenley dollar budget comes from big food. Companies like Coke Craft Domino's pizza and they watered down the guidelines pizzas eventually ball. French fries. Intervention Ball. I got your fresh. It's terrible kids are really suffering in sex nailing their weight and you're wondering help it also their cognitive function and their behavior like you said before now I now the things that are okay under the guidelines pepperoni pizza chicken nuggets funnel cakes chocolate muffins..
Science News Briefs From Around the World
"Hi I'm scientific American. Podcast editor Steve. Mirsky and here's a short piece from the February. Twenty twenty issue of the magazine and the section called advances dispatches from the frontiers of science technology and medicine. The article was titled Quick Hits. And it's a rundown of some science and technology stories from around the globe compiled by Assistant News editor. Sarah Lou Frazier from the US off. The California coast scientist measured a blue whales heart rate for the first time using a device attached to the animal skin by Suction Cup the heart likely weighing hundreds of pounds beats from the thirty seven down to two times per minute varying dramatically between diving feeding and surfacing from Peru researchers analyzing satellite. An imaging data have found one hundred. Forty three new Nazca lines. These are largely line drawings of humans animals and symbols etched into the Peruvian Landscape Millennia. Ago The drawings including humanoid figures sixteen feet across spotted by. Ibm's Watson AI system from Brazil despite the long dry spells in Brazil's Catchinga region. Scientists found the tree hyman a Conga era drizzles copious nectar from flowers to attract pollinating.

Archaeologists ground piecing radar found a Viking era ship surrounded by a filled ditch lurking below the soil of a western Norway farm. The ship was once within a burial mound from Jordan. Researchers uncovered a two horned figure in early Islamic ruins that may be the earliest ever found the roughly thirteen hundred year old object matches a rook found in Iranian chess. Set from about four hundred years later and from Ethiopia microbes thrive in many of earth's harshest environments but researchers found no life at all in briny scorching civic pools near Ethiopia's Dalla volcano knowing the boundaries for life's adaptations helps to narrow the search for earth like life on other planets.

Eating For Better Health
"In this episode of the Doctor Pharmacy. We're going to focus on chronic disease. And what the solutions are to solve this epidemic. But first we have to really understand the scope of the problem and the cause of the problem. In America. Six out of ten Americans have chronic disease. Four out of ten Americans have multiple chronic diseases. It affects more than every other person in America and globally. It's increasing eighty percent of the world's chronic disease and obesity is in the developing world. This is not just a first world problem. This is a global problem and a recent study the global burden of disease study which looked at populations all over the world one hundred ninety five countries over twenty seven year period. Found remarkable thing that eleven million people die every year from eating too much of the bad food. None of the good food. Not Enough Hole on real unprocessed foods and too much of the bad stuff processed foods ultra processed foods sugar sweetened beverages refined grains trans fats and so forth and not only that account for eleven million desk but two hundred fifty five million years of disability and life years lost. What was striking was not. Only was it the presence of the bad foods but it was the absence of the good foods that contribute to the problem. Now if there was a disease like Zepa or a Bola that was killing. Eleven million people year. There'd be a global effort to solve this problem. There'd be businesses. Scientists policymakers philanthropist. Everybody'd be pouring resources into this but this is silent. Nobody is focused on dealing with the issue of food that was recently at a conference milken. Global Conference listening to a panel of leading thinkers and actors and healthcare people. I have tremendous respect for the head of the National Institutes of health the Sea of the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation the head of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid services the CEO of Kaiser Health Systems. These are giants in the field of health. Care and they really spoke about a lot of important things erotic polio malaria AIDS gene editing. Really amazing technology to cure rare genetic diseases that affect few people but are devastating improving the interoperability of medical records so that we have complete transparency and access across all different medical records matter where you are in the world data sharing to improve medical science and improving medical payment systems to pay for outcomes and value. These are all essential things we need to healthcare but it ignores the biggest problem facing us the big elephant in the room which is the fact that the biggest killer globally is food and yes we have to deal with all these other issues but food is the biggest driver of disease period on the planet and yet no one's really talking about this or how to address it on a global level. Part of the problem has been that. This epidemic has come on like a juggernaut over the last forty years as blindsided. Scientists doctors healthcare systems governments. And we're just sort of like a deer the headlights not not what the heck to do but the truth is we know what to do. We know now that the food we eat the food we don't eat is the single biggest cause of death worldwide exceeding tobacco and every other known risk factor. I mean historically was infections poor sanitation we call communicable disease But now seventy percent of deaths worldwide from what we call non communicable disease things like heart disease. Obesity Diabetes Cancer Dementia but they are not really noncommunicable because he actually affected by the social conditions that we live in. We know that we blame people for these diseases. We say well you know. Malaria TB age. You know it's not really your fault so you're the victim but with food related illness. We kind of blame the victim. We said you know you choose what you put in your mouth you choose. What your heating. So if food is causing it'd be sick it's your fault. Why should it be my problem but as it turns out the social conditions we live in are driving the diseases. We have Paul farmer calls this structural violence the social economic political conditions. That Dr Disease. If you live in a world where our food system produces mostly disease causing foods were. It's a food carnival that makes it really almost impossible to make the right choice where our government supports the production and sale. These foods and we're fresh. Foods are biologically addictive then. Personal choice is a fiction. The scientists clear non communicable diseases. It turns out are Berry Berry communicable.

"hyman" Discussed on The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.
"Both through hurricanes fires things like that so I wish we could have gone back in time and said there. The problem is climate volatility and stability twenty nineteen was the hottest year on record other than twenty sixteen in human history. So we know it and I think so the question is why is it happening in? What's the cause of it and clearly? Most people think it's fossil fuels and picking up all the carbon that was stored in the Earth's crust and burning it and releasing that carbon through fossil fuels. And that's a big part of it. Maybe a third but half of it comes from our food system to all sorts of different mechanisms one deforestation to lose the carbon capture from the trees the soil destruction from destructive agriculture which we have which essentially is a method of industrial growing food. The tills the soil which disrupts the normal organic matter causes soil erosion releases carbon the environment. It also when you look at the soil is an issue itself. It's probably the biggest cause and the biggest solution to fixing climate change and multiple. Don't think about that. I think about oil not soil but a third to forty percent of all the carbon in the atmosphere. Today that's causing. Climate volatility is from the loss of soil as a staggering amount. So explain how that's the case. Yeah well the soil. When it's a live in his living matter and carbon in the soil organic matter which is carbon it can hold three times the amount of carbon in the atmosphere today which is a trillion tons of carbon it can hold three trillion tons the UN estimated that if we take two million of the five million degraded hector's of land around the world and we intensively use regenerative agriculture. Which I'll explain a minute and restore the soil. We could stop climate change and delay the progression for about twenty years and it would cost three hundred billion dollars. Which essentially what we pay for diabetes in America through Medicare and it's basically the amount of budget for the total global military. Spend for just two months or sixty days. So this is a solvable problem. And the reason that the soil is such an issue is that basically takes on. The grasses are on there and the plants are on their it sucks. The carbon out of the environment can explanative between soil and dirt. Soil is alive. Soil has all kinds of bugs in it microbial fungi. It has all kinds of bacteria. It has all kinds of carbon from the plants and holds. A huge amount of water can hold for example for every one percent. Organic matter can hold twenty. Seven thousand gallons of water which would prevent floods and droughts which does increase more resilient farms. Explain that again when you have soil. It's like a sponge so when it rains instead of the rain running off or running through get stored like a sponge in the soil. So that you don't need irrigate you don't have to worry about floods and droughts now the reason we had so much of these floods in these flooded farm fields in the mid. West was because these soils are just dead and the more and more fertilizer. So we're killing the soil by using fertilizer pesticides herbicides tilling using cover crops not using crop rotations not using animals in an integrated way to actually create more soil. And everything we're doing is just destroying the soil when you have alive soil when you have the ability of these plants. The second carbon dioxide because they breathe carbon dioxide plants. Do they breathe out. Oxygen which we breathe and vicious beautiful virtuous cycle and the carbon dioxide from the atmosphere gets pulled through the plants into the soil and stays there. And you can build soil simply by using this technology and Integrating Animals that Poop and pee so. I don't think I was aware of that. I'll put my ignorance on full display. I always assume that the majority of the carbon that came in that the plant brought in through the photo cell was for carbon fixation which was creating bio matter so in other words carbon and oxygen are coming in from a carbon dioxide. That carbon is being fixated to other carbons. That's how we make hydrocarbons within the plans carbohydrates and then the oxygen is being released. But I didn't realize that there was any carbon dioxide stored in soil. Yeah and if you look at the mechanism as it goes into the plant but it also goes into the roots and you've got this incredible root system and you've got micro. Fungi that are saying the hydrocarbon within the roots of the plant. Yeah is the storage but not in the soil per se not in the actual dirt and backlogged no-no then it gets eaten by the bacteria. Eaten by this massive micro fungi and it creates a lot of narcotic dead but actually organic matter is incredibly rich. Living Organism and dirt is just dead. Dirt doesn't hold water. It doesn't have much carbon in it. It doesn't have much nutrients and in order to actually extract the nutrients from the plants. You have to have organic matter which allows us and bacteria and all these micro fungi which make the nutrients in the soil available to the plant. And since we've are growing food in dirt we see fifty percent less nutrient density of even healthy food like Broccoli has less minerals and it did fifty years ago so you have all these complicated factors that are driving the destruction of our soil fertilisers. Another one I don't think people really understand the fertilizer store. There's four hundred billion pounds of fertilizer use everywhere in the world. It's a sevenfold increase over the last forty years because they're two thirds as effective the way you make fertilizer is a chemically intensive process. It uses energy. It's one of the biggest allies of energy and in a number one utilize are fracking produced natural gas. Which I didn't even know so when you look at the Front Liners Day these natural gas. Exxon and in order to make the gas. I'm sorry they use more fertilizer than Exxon produces decided. They use more energy. Natural gas produces yes more natural gas than Exxon uses so the mosaic big companies are making fertilizer using this intensive energy process. That needs natural gas. When you FRAC you actually release methane from these methane leaks that come out of these fracking wells. Recently there's one in Ohio that you could see from space and in that actually is about a quarter of all methane. Release it gas in the environment today. Which is as much as factory farmed cows. And that's from growing plants. Do you know what percent of I don't know the numbers anymore. But there is a day when the United States was consuming twenty million barrels of oil and oil equivalent per day. It's probably a bit less than that today. Do you know what what amount of that is? In the production transport food one fifth of all our oil consumption is for the food system. It's more all cars planes boats transportation combined so it's a staggering amount of oil and part of his as he can't be combined. Though because lighter no combined with all transportation combined is less than one fifth of our total oil consumption 'cause lives industry and other things. So yeah it's pretty staggering. And so the fracking. Ten percent of our energy utilization is to make fertilizer delivers seed Harvest Pesticides Herbicides. L. Come from fossil fuels fertilizer even worse. Because now you have all the gas using the methane release from that when you put on the soil. It kills the soil and sorry. The purpose of fertilizer is to provide jolly nitrogen loss for us right nitrogen nitrogen to the plant so again just taking a step back for the biochemistry understanding of this. I think plant biology betterment so incredible because I don't think people appreciate the significance of carbon fixation. How complicated chemical reaction? It is to take carbon join into carbon like a plant can do so and it's very energy intensive which is why it requires sunlight. So you've got this photosynthetic thing. But basically plants need carbon which they're getting from the air they need nitrogen and phosphorus which they're getting from their soil and they need energy and water with they're getting from the environment and the name make biomass. Yeah exactly so. The fertilizer is where we give them the nitrogen. The phosphorus Yes but most of the fertilizer that was growing plants historically came from either nitrogen fixing plants like legumes or animals the reason we have fifty feet of topsoil on some areas in this country hundred and fifty years ago it was because of all millions of bison running around like Bison and elk and all these room and instant were running around and big herds chopping things down moving onto the next spot peeing and pooping Ding things. So I have a mixed. The grass grow so as beautiful symbiotic system that got literally ten feet of topsoil and it's not that we have too many cows our growing. I mean I think it's worth pausing moment to explain for folks. I'll try to do it quickly. There is a day believe it or not like ten years ago when I was obsessed with understanding agriculture. So everything I'm saying is ten years old so you can correct me if I'm wrong. But basically if you use corn as the model system and you look at the only metric that really matters which is bushels per acre per year yield it all comes down to yield basically from the civil war to about the end of World War. Two if you look at crop yield and you see the plot. It was about twenty bushels per acre per year so every Acre could produce twenty bushels of corn per year. Obviously had fluctuated quite a bit from year to year but it was largely horizontal jagged. Line from about the end of the civil war to the end of World War Two and then something really interesting happens at the end of World War Two that line just turns up and just almost in a linear fashion rises to two hundred bushels per acre per year. And I think what a lot of people eroneous assume as it's the GODDAMN GMO. Well actually no not at all. Gm Odin even kick in until that number was one hundred and sixty. It was nitrogen based fertilizer crop rotation industrial farming meaning the ability to actually use machines to not just have a farmer out there doing something. It was selective breeding crossing so it was a bunch of things that came in and be basically. Gmo has put like ten percent plus up on that from game. Like maybe that's debatable. So yeah anyway the point here. Is this process really began in earnest about seventy years ago and prior to seventy years ago? It's been remarkably flat so of course this goes back to something you said earlier which is post. World War Two. We had to figure out how to feed a bunch of people and twenty bushels per acre per year was not cutting it. We're now ten times the yield as you're pointing out at quite a cost to cost. Yeah so the question then is I mean you talk about in your book how we're wasting a third of the food produced so we don't really need twenty two hundred bushels per acre per year if we stop wasting have you figured out or at least calculated what you think the sweet spot is which is if you were to back off the aggressive yield measures not waste. How much of the benefit could you recapture? That was there. When for example we used animals are fertilizer that's right sort of a fallacy in the idea that we can't produce the same amount of food using regenerative methods. I think that's been disproven you believe in other words. There is two hundred bushels per acre per year. Using regenerative methods share a quick story. I want to chew the store and I'm going to come back to the fertilizer and talk about the rest of the different aspects that are causing climate change. People need understand that. There's a guy named Gabe Brown who was a North Dakota farmer. Five thousand Acre farm devastated by Hale devastated by whether and was about to go bankrupt and then decided he was try Jenner Mayor Culture and many years we started at and now he says he's built twenty inches of soil. He's as no chemical inputs makes his own fertilizer from the animals and plants that he plans to the nitrogen fixing plants. He produces more food better quality food and makes twenty times as.
"hyman" Discussed on The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.
"Different species of plants a lot of roots and tubers one hundred grams of fiber day on the average American these about eight grams. Nothing and we had not very complex diet which was very difficult to obtain sugar. You Got Lucky if you found a honey thing I mean I remember this reading article about. He's Nepalese honey hunters or they have to climb up one hundred feet in the trees with a burning Bush. I if you had a climate tree with a burning Bush to get a cookie you're probably wouldn't eat so I think it's become so easy for us to have abundance of sugar and flour refined foods and the good intentions that were there. In the postwar period that led to the development of industrial agriculture to provide a lot of starchy abundant calories to feed the hungry and solve real hunger issues around the world. And I think that was a good thing but there was unintended. Consequences of the intensive chemical agriculture. They're using tensor fertilizer use and the commodity products which are wheat corn and soy rice in some other areas of the world that are driving this obesity epidemic. Our biology isn't adapted to eating highly refined foods. Which essentially as most of what? We're eating out sixty percent of our calories in every ten percent of your calories. That's ultra processed food. Your risk of death was up by fourteen percent. It's not it's not something our bodies like adapted to and then of course there's all the other stuff in there maybe problematically refined soybean oil or food additives or chemicals that are food that have all sorts of metabolic consequences like bpa or other metabolic toxins. That are within the food or eating so complicated it's sugar and starch and flour the big drivers but there's all these other components and then who knows what's happening with Pesticides and glyphosate effecting microbiome. It's such a complex web of different factors that alter metabolic pathways that drives disease and just kind of digging into this a little bit more. How much of it do you think is the energy balance and the dysregulation of energy balance that comes from these processed foods so there are certainly people out there that would argue that part of the trouble with process is sort of hijacks our energy static systems. So if you put a human in an environment akin to what our ancestors evolved in there is enough auto feedback regulation that you sort of maintain energy balance. You would eat more when you need it. Eat more you eat less when you need to eat less. One of the drawbacks processed food. If not the biggest drawback is hijacks that system. And if you cut the feedback out of that loop. They're eating when they don't really need additional energy. Do you think that's the biggest issue or do you think it's the void of nutrient that then create sort of an abundance of junk calorie as the body? Search for nutrients. Do you think it's this loss of fiber kids? Who were iron-deficient dirt? It's called PICA and it's well known that if you're looking for nutrients there's gonNA eat anything so that may be part of it. I think the main part of it is and then you've talked about slot is the is the ways in which these refined starches sugars affect your biology. They raise insulin which has a cascading effect of fat storage in your belly which is a dangerous fat. It leads to increased. Hunger affects your brain chemistry. It actually locks the fat in the fat cells so they can't get out so they got one turnstile gets an mkx can't get out and it's slow your metabolism. So you're in this cascade of vicious cycle so you talked about energy balancing most people when they hear that thinking about calories in calories out. I think both understand that. It's more complex than that that there's different effects of food on your biology independent of calories in a lab all calories the same seven hundred coke fifty calories. A coke is the same as seven hundred and fifty calories and Broccoli but to get seven hundred and fifty calories of Sodhi have a big gulp which is forty six months. Sugar and seven. Hundred and fifty calories Broccoli is twenty one cups of Broccoli with thirty five grams of fiber and no sugar profoundly different effects on your biology same calories but we don't really appreciate that medicine and most of our current thinking. My weight loss's focused on calories in calories out it suits the food industry because they go. Well it's all about moderation. There's no good or bad calories. It's exercise more eat less. That's their mantra. And it serves them to some more their junk food as long as it's part of Balanced Diet but the truth is these foods affect our brain chemistry and create all sorts of metabolic issues. That are incredibly difficult. And I was chatting with my friend. David promoter who just wrote a book called Brainwash where he's talking about. He's interrupted just where the prefrontal CORTEX and the Migdal uncoupled with an inflammatory diet. Which is what we're eating most of us in America and around the world. What that means. Is that the adult in the room. The prefrontal CORTEX which is the decision maker. That understands the consequences of. It's behavior is not talking to the impulse part of your brain. The fighter flight part of your brain pleasure seeking party brain so there's this disconnection and your decisions are not in your best interest and that's why we have so much bad behavior and conflict and so forth because we're eating this inflammatory diet. It's literally this regulating. Our brains to the adult in the room is asleep. Sabit more about that. What is it about the Diet that could be inflammatory? And how could one measure the consequences of that? Because is it possible that two people could consume the exact same subpar diet and have very different Fleming Tori responses? Yeah sure I mean there is this enough. People are eating junk food and processed food. Their metabolism whatever. They look like they're they're overweight or not is not going to be as good as someone who's eating a whole foods processed diet but there isn't a lot of genetic variability but you can actually measure inflammation response to diet through various biomarkers. There's there's new panels of sort of looking at the zone which is really cool. It's more than just a CRPF said rate which your blood test you can do to look at inflammation and the ways in which it causes particularly was talking about insulin. Also drives this visceral belly fat which is a basically metabolic fire that starts in these cells that spreads inflammation throughout the body. So just the nature of eating sugar and processed food drive up inflammation if a patient has normal biomarkers through the lens of all of those things their inner lukens and c reactive protein fiber engine. If all of those things were normal. Would you still think that there's potentially an inflammatory response? That's coming through their diet. And the question is how sensitive of our our current tools for assessing the immune response to food and I think they're pretty crappy and I think there's more and more lab diagnostic measures that are coming about. That are going to help us. Look at that. I was talking to someone from the Buck Institute of Aging last week. And he said Yeah. This whole new panel inflammatory biomarkers. That are much more specific and much more sensitive and enable us to look at the inflammatory response is happening in the body related to aging diet or anything else how much of that inflammatory. Response is mediated by permeability in the Gut specifically verses. Because I have to be honest with you mark. This is an area that I've never understood. It gets talked about a lot. There's lots of hand waving. Sometimes I see it certainly in patients. I mean when we see subtle elevations fibrinogen anogen- Dorsey reactive protein. Or at least two of the Interleukins. We usually put patients on elimination diets till we find out what the culprit was. And and we're trying to basically titrate symptoms versus these biomarkers. But I find that to be staggeringly crude and to your point. I don't know what we're missing and I don't know what's true true and unrelated and then of course it gets back to the question of what's the mechanism of this and so one potential mechanism. Is that the permeability of the gut is altered and if bacteria that could normally not trans locate across the lining of the gut do so that would certainly be a reason for inflammation A. Do you think that that's prevalent huge? I mean our guts are messed up. And there's all phenomena called Metabolic endotoxin. Mia's been well described and studied and the fact that your gut microbiome has a huge role in regulation weight independent of calories. So they literally take poop out of a skinny rat into a fat rat and make them skinny and vice versa done in humans. I think the way in which it works is that your microbiome is regulated. By what you eat fiber prebiotics the fighter nutrients phytochemicals the polyphenyls all affect the quality of the garden. You have growing inside of you and you can get a lot of nasty weeds in there. When that starts to happen they start to disrupt the Gut microbiome they disrupt the lining of the Gothic. 'cause we called leaky gut on top of everything else which are low fiber diet. High sugar processed food increases bad bugs in the gut. Antibiotics ADBLOCKER ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUGS HORMONES. All scrip are and of course toxins environmental toxins. Glyphosate is super toxic to the microbial. And all these things that we know and those things are disrupting the microbiome and when that happens. The lining of the gut becomes slightly damaged. The biofilms get disrupted and you end up absorbing bacterial product Spiro. Toxins as well as food. Antigens things that we should normally tolerate it start to create an inflammatory response in sixty percent of your immune system is in your and you know what's really striking to me. Peter is sort of the discovery that many of our metabolites in our blood probably third or more may be from microbiome in other words. When you check your blood tests for checking human analyze but when you actually start to do smart sophisticated metabolic testing metabolism. You find all these things. That aren't humid that come from bacteria that are regulating your immune system. That are activating your your Mitochondria. That are regulating your DNA that affecting your brain chemistry affecting your mood affecting all sorts of diseases so this is a really exciting area. And I think getting people's microbiome sorted often happens when you shift to a whole foods plant rich diet not plant based but plant rich. How can one measure these things? I mean one of the things that I've found difficulties finding valid commercial tests that can enable patients or physicians to understand if they're in this sort of regulated state. I mean to me. The black box is when someone comes in and says I have got BIOS or I have poor gut health and they may be right. But it's very different than someone who says I have type two diabetes where we have really clear ways to diagnose it we kind of have some understanding. What the pathophysiology is. Here this is much more squishy and frankly. There's an enormous disconnect between people like you and sort of the stuffy upper lipped gastroenterologist who makes his or her living in the gut but doesn't necessarily sort of see the problem this way right. They're looking at different problem. You know honestly beater. The evidence is becoming overwhelming. That mainstream medicine is bought into this whole microbiome story and Cleveland Clinic. For example they're studying the microbiome and heart disease arthritis and cancer. And it's like they just got a twelve million dollar grant from the NIH to study the microbiome and heart disease which.
The Impact of the Food System on Our Health and the Environment with Mark Hyman
"Mark thanks for coming over man. No I'm so happy to be here. It's beautiful chickens running around and everything Venezuelan the freezer. My kind of place. Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's in keeping with a lot of what we're gonNA talk about today. I think mark a lot of people would associate you with other topics that we might get into functional medicine the role of toxins in the environment. Certainly food but from the standpoint of health what to eat but what we're talking about today is actually something that when you first mentioned to me. You are working on this book actually. At the time you were putting the finishing touches on it about a year ago I was like. That's definitely something I want to understand more so I can't wait to kind of have this discussion with you today. And that is basically how food is made. How food is delivered and how food is consumed. And what the impacts of that are I mean? What made you decide to tackle a problem of this magnitude which is not just a scientific problem but it's a political problem. It's a religious problem if we're going to be brutally honest nutrition religion. Yes exactly so. It's about as complicated as a topic is one would go after it is. I think as a doctor seeing patients day after day for thirty years is a functional medicine. Doctor my focus is on why? Why are my patients so sick and not always but the majority of them? It has some relationship to food and then it began to wonder. Well I could sit here all day. Bailing the bucket and the boat with a hole in it. But I have to figure out why they're eating the food they're eating and they're going to think about it and go upstream and while food they're eating is caused by the food system and like why did we have the food system. We have our food policies. And then I'm like. Why do we have our food policies? It's food industry. That influences our government policy through lobbying and other other influences that they do across the spectrum of society to drive their products to the market and sell them. Which are predominant killing us. There's eleven million. People die every year from eating ultra processed food and not enough the good food and I think it's an underestimate so basically answered questions. I realized I couldn't treat my patients in my office in the hospital. The clinic I had to go where the source of the problem was. Yeah Yeah and I want to sort of put this in context which is the evolution of this the domestication of crops. The institutionalization of agriculture has for. We're going to demonize it a little bit here but the reality of it is it's been kind of a remarkable transformation it would certainly be akin to the printing press when you think about step function changes in our civilization when we went from Hunter gatherers to an agricultural society. 'cause I WANNA be careful that we're not just sort of saying the answer is. Agriculture is no the end of the agricultural solution. If we do it right yeah. So let's start with what you see as the main pillars of the problem. How did we get to a point? Where the food environment is toxic. Because that's effectively. What you're saying right. Is that if you eat on default. You'RE GONNA probably eat the wrong things. It goes deeper than that. The food system as a house I began to dig in this rabbit hole. I realized it wasn't just causing chronic disease but it was causing most of the global crises that were thinking about in silos that are all connected and just quickly. Lay them out and it'd be good to go with them and details go through the podcast. But clearly food is the biggest driver of chronic disease affecting six hundred. Ten people is clearly the biggest driver of economic stress in this country in our twenty two trillion dollar debt. One third of all Medicare expenses over diabetes alone. One third of all of our federal budget is Medicare. Who was a company would be the biggest company in the world a trillion dollars annually? It's also driving climate. Change a food system end to end. Packet is the number one. Cause of climate change more than fossil fuels. It's causing massive environmental degradation loss about diversity. Plants pieces animal species livestock species. It's driving social injustice in many ways through how it affects our kids cognitive element and a million learn and there's huge academic achievement gaps lead to massive health disparities because poor communities are more affected by these foods and are more targeted by them and affects even behavior violence conflict. We such a divisive society today. Why did we have forty years ago? Wasn't like that and I think our diet has changed so radically. Not just in the last ten thousand years but in the last forty years with the advent of massive amounts of alter processed food and that's driving cognitive behavioral issues violence suicide conflict and even threatens our national security because seventy percent of military recruits are unfit to fight and reject it. So we've got these global problems that are affecting us and then of course that leads to massive political instability because of our food system of climate refugees because the food systems dry climate. What is that going to do? I mean think about it. We had a million Syrian refugees and that created a global crisis the UN estimates that within a decade or a few decades. We're going to have two hundred. Two billion climate refugees that's unimaginable. So how do we begin to grapple with these problems and think about the solutions and the beauty is since they're all connected by food they can all be solved by going to the root and fixing our food system and that's the leverage we have which is so exciting to me because it's not a doom and gloom the world's ending? It's yeah we identify the problem. How it's connected think of it as a system and then be able to solve the problem by going to the root dealing with these issues collectively. So which one of those would you like to start with? Would you like to start with sort of the impact of processed food on health? Which is probably not one that we need to spend a lot of time on. I don't think there's many people that would debate that are there. You'd be surprised. I mean there's twelve billion dollars spent by the food industry on nutrition quote research that Confuses People's muddies the waters at declares. That gatorade is great. Sports drink and sugar doesn't cause obesity and that I mean I could go on and on people are confused and then certainly are political leaders. Certainly get this and I think when you think of our healthcare system. It certainly doesn't get that. Food is medicine. You really think that political leaders. I know you've spent some time interacting with folks. Do you really think they don't get it or do you think that they're just in a difficult position. Which is how do you appease all of these constituents on the one hand a lot of the bills get paid by the entities that endorse these agendas and on the other end? They probably have empathy for the damage. This do you actually think. There's a lack of awareness. Do I mean forget about politicians academics? Doctors health professionals have no clue how powerful food is to heal disease. I mean they get that if you eat too much you're gonNA get fat right but that's about it or have you too much card. Maybe now maybe we'll get diabetes. But not even that I mean. The American Diabetes Association is still telling people eat a lot of carbohydrates. I think we have a real black of understanding of the power of food to cause disease in the power food-secure disease and so there's a real gap in that. I think it's starting to become in the public awareness. That food is medicine. Food is medicine working group in Congress clinic where I work now. Food is medicine initiative hospitals around the country. That are talking about this. It's more the exception than the rule so I do think people don't understand the magnitude. I mean if you Saito politician. What is the biggest killer on the planet? They're going to go smoking or lack of exercise. Maybe they're going to get this being overweight but they don't get that it's the ultra processed food that kills more people than smoking violence wars. Everything else so I mean. I think there was a disease like Bowler Zeka. That was killing. Eleven million a year. It would be talking about it. And it's just not in the conversation that's happening. Even for example Medicare Medicare for all. Has Anybody said the reason we have trouble? Medicare is because people are eating bad food and that we need to fix the food or no. Let's get Medicare for all that's repeal obamacare. I mean those aren't solutions. That would be a disaster if we could medicare for all because everybody second is going to bankrupt the country and let's fix why they're sick in the first

Suspicious Celebrity Deaths: Marilyn Monroe
"We'll start our exploration with a clip from podcast original conspiracy. Theories that discusses the media sensationalized death of actress and sex icon Marilyn Monroe nearly sixty years after her death. Monroe continues to be a pop culture icon. Monroe's private life was the subject of much Hollywood gossip in the nineteen fifties. She was involved in two highly publicized marriages and divorces and battled addiction and depression when she died of a prescription overdose in nineteen sixty two. It was ruled a suicide but many believed there was something more behind her cause of death on August fourth nineteen sixty two. Maryland spent most of the afternoon in a room after having an argument with her friend and publicist Pat Nukem in the morning nukem state at the House for the rest of the afternoon at about three or four. Pm Maryland's housekeeper. Eunice Murray called over her psychiatrist. Dr Ralph Greenspan. She claims she called him because she was troubled by Maryland's request for an oxygen treatment. Even though oxygen was a well-known hangover cure at the time Dr Green soon arrived around three or four Pat Nukem left and green spoke to Maryland in her room for about an hour. Greenspan left asking Murray to stay at Maryland's house overnight and keep an eye on her Maryland took a telephone into her room and spent the night making calls to friends and acquaintances every when she spoke to agree she didn't sound drugged or depressed and she gave no indication. She was considering suicide at around ten PM. She set the receiver down during a call and never turned around ten thirty. She made one last call to Peter. Lawford her friend. And the husband of Patricia Kennedy during the call she apparently drifted into unconsciousness and stopped responding at either midnight or three a m. She changed her story later. In the morning Eunice Murray woke up and noticed a light in Maryland's room was still on but she wasn't responding. She called Dr Green Son who broke in through the bedroom window and found Maryland lying dead clutching the telephone. Next to empty pill. Bottles of prescription sedative called NEMBUTAL and a nearly empty bottle of another sedative choral hydrate. Greenspan called Maryland's physician Dr Hyman Engelberg. Who came over and officially pronounced her dead at four. Twenty five am the police were called. Murray Greenspan and Engelberg initially told investigators Jack Clemens that Maryland's body had been found at midnight creating a four hour gap between discovering the body and calling the police that none of them could account for clemens. Was Relieve by Sergeant Marvin known who sealed up the house until the full investigative force arrived at about five thirty when the investigators questioned them later that morning. Murray Greenspan and Engelberg all changed their stories to say that Maryland's body hadn't been discovered until three a m inconsistencies in the forensic evidence and the witnesses stories. Baffled the police but it did appear to be a suicide so they held off on opening an official investigation until the coroner confirmed the cause of death. The coroner's investigation went on for less than a week during which they interviewed. None of the key witnesses except for Maryland psychoanalyst. Dr Ralph Greenspan after speaking with Dr Greenspan the deputy. Da Leading the investigation said. He was completely convinced that. Maryland's death was not a suicide. The medical examiner's performing the autopsy also believed the death couldn't have been a suicide but despite those findings the coroner officially ruled the cause of death as a probable suicide over the past five decades. Even more evidence has emerged to suggest that Marilyn's death was not in fact a suicide. There have been repeated calls to reopen the investigation into Maryland's death some as recent as two thousand two should not be a close case. It should be an open case by the. Da There's too much too. Many people too much overwhelming evidence that proves that this was not a suicide and I think that Maryland needs closure the difficulty with finding the truth. Is that nearly all the key? Figures involved in Maryland's death are now dead themselves and the statements they gave during their lifetimes were often contradictory. Many of the witnesses who have spoken out against the official story have been discredited as liars fame seekers and conspiracy theorists despite evidence that they might be telling the truth and many of the people who upheld the official story had their own hidden agendas. It was in their best interest to end the inquiry into Maryland's death as quickly as possible
"hyman" Discussed on The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.
"Go to prison you you'll get killed your care you can. They don't have a lot of these dyes and bright yes. So there's a funny you know the FDA you know influenced by the food industry. And I was once with the former head of federal drug administration dragging ministration Peggy Hammer former. She she was she was she was the FDA commander Gap But but now she's former and I was at the World Economic Community. How how come you know. We have some trouble with with getting advances in food labelling or dealing with toxic chemicals in our food or baby botox and animal feed. Or You know. He's like she's like well when we try to make too aggressive change. Congress threatened to shut down our funding because of the food lobby threatened to shut down. Yeah and then what down? What would happen? Well they burst. They're limited in their ability to do their job. And so the same thing happened. In the seventies there was a movement by the Federal Trade Commission to have you know negative Educa- education campaigns are on sugar. And how bad it was but the congress. We're GonNa pull your funding and shut you down if you if you do this and so they'd pull back so so you know. In FOR EXAM BS Question Asia we have called grass which is generally recognized as safe. So we have. We have thousands of food additives only about five percent of actually been tested for safety in the US grandfather and let's go for example. Transfat was grandfathered in as a safety food to eat but it's fifty years for researchers finally proved the FDA that it was a safe was the base of all processed food CRISCO shortening. Shorten Your Life rush-right Josh. And and so the they literally had to be sued by a scientist in order to actually turn into a non safe substance and then of course they gave the food industry years and years to get out it but but in this country. There's so many things that are used in our food supply that are banned in Europe like Bhd Hydroxy talion. Food ad is various dis and something called Asia diker bottomline which is a softener that makes grand more like fluffy inside and it was just an semi-savage friend. Bonnie hurry outed them. Said this is your Yoga Mat material and your subway sandwich and they got a tip to eat her and she gone out but still says it's finally Ryan in Singapore. If you use it in your food producer you got a four hundred fifty thousand dollar fine and fifteen years in jail for putting the food that same ingredients same ingredient that anyone can use in the US or any us. Yes and most of the things that are safe put safe here are banned in Europe. So like yeah. They're not doing their job. And then antibiotics and we have thirty million pounds. I made a boxer used in animal feed about thirty seven million total so about seven million for humans to disease and thirty million for animals. Why for growth growth factor make some fat and it makes you one's bad too and it is used for prevention promote crowding and the FDA says well. This isn't a guy is a good idea but they go. Would you please pretty please not do it? It was a voluntary guideline that the FDA produced now mentor. You have bet certify that the animal sick before you give them antibiotics and now they continue to do it and just laugh had voluntary the the Fda FTSE put involuntary guidelines around junk food market. Would you please not advertise the bad stuff and advertise more good stuff voluntary? The food industry went ballistic. And had to overturn. Even the voluntary guidelines are nullified. Like no known and it. I mean sugar. I mean it's like I'm the first one to raise my hand when I say like I love sugar and everybody is vice. Cookies and candies and cakes and brownies. And anything you can think of. I love it right now. We're probably on diabetes. So much sugar. I've had my whole life but not much. You look pretty good. Why train hard to go the waves and but as a kid. I drink like nine ten Dr Pepper Day. A member like some days in the summer. You just resident. Is that whatever. He's run around and worked out and play sports. But then I just drink thought you're sixteen eighteen now like nine Tan right so I was like but it was. You'd see it on commercials like your NBA Superstar. Drinking Dr Pepper sprite. Or whatever after on the basketball court. And I don't know if it was just like subconscious or just tasted good. And you didn't think about it most all. I mean this is where the food is so I mean I talk about in my book. Food facts industries so strategic about how advances its mission and goals and it does it through multiple channels. And I'm just GonNa go through them because it just people just tell them no celebrity endorsements right. I obviously you know celebrity endorsements which is the obvious one they co op social groups so they fund groups like the end Lacey Pe- in Hispanic population the African American communities most affected by obesity. And they coop them by funding them. I want to show the movie fed up at the King Center in Atlanta. And I'm burnings king. He's daughter was all about and she was excited. But once once we got to schedule a few delivering on a call and we couldn't show. My wife is because coca-cola funds the King Center. Now Yep I went to Spelman College which is African American Women College in Atlanta and the Dean said to me half of the eighteen year olds coming into college have a chronic illness. Obesity hypertension diabetes. Npr Women and I'm like why is Your Soda. Machines all over the campus just because Cope funds now at the board of trustees is one of the highest executives. I Talk Oh man never so they coop social groups and that's why they for example a post soda taxes because they're in the funding of these these big soda companies and then of Course They Fund Research Fund Twelve Times as much research twelve billion dollars with the research a year to study nutrition. So gatorade get studied by Pepsi Gatorade. It's the best thing in the world. It's not a sugar right to the corruption pollute. Science people are confused. Why is there? So much confusion about attrition signing third they create front groups spin-doctors so they create. Franco's seemed like their independent groups like cropped life. Yeah or they're twins center for Consumer Freedom or American Council on science and health. Which by the way is run by a bunch of doctors who suggests that pesticides are safe tacos Corpus? Great for you that smoking causes es and why do why would they do that? Because they get paid a lot they're funded by Monsanto and big food and Pepsi. Just look at their funders and there. I mean they spend thirty million dollars fighting. Gmo labeling in California this funded by Monsanto right and then you need friend groups. And then you have been co-opting scientists and academy so the nutrition. Academies the American Heart Association American Diabetes Association Funding Large Part Comes from industry and the Academy Attrition Dynamics which is our main nutrition association. Forty percent of their funding comes from the food industry. And you know. They have sponsored lectures at their meetings. That are you know when people say we'll have to score and surface good and dieting. Good and like right. It's completely corrupted. And so these professional societies have guidelines. And they're they're corrupt and Dr Nineties from Stanford who's a scientist looks at carefully if the research and and conflicts of interest as you know these professional societies like the American Heart Association diabetes should not be making guidelines. And then you've got all these ways in which they screw things up and of course. They are aggressive in advertising and marketing legal in most countries. And then they have lobbyists running around Washington driving policy that supports all what they do. See you've got this massive effort and often subversive illegal and it's you know it's Kinda shaking. I mean here's an example like in California. There was a group that wanted to have anti was was to to promote GMO labeling and they put in a ballot what does that make promote GMO. You know that you have to label if you have a food has gym-owner cocaine or Coca Cola. Gmo right right like in a cigarette box where it says like will kill your and your plant based bird to say GMO right. So finishing at the Grocery Manufacturers America got together. We really cost you know. Huge amounts of money. People were wear stuff. Don't want it stopped by and by the way they labeled though that seems like the smart thing that'd be away most countries do have it like I think thirty two countries have it including China and Russia. We're not what you're not known for transparency or democracy right so we they don't sterile so so they basically tried to put this thing down the food interesting together with the grocery manufacturers trade group and like we can't have so they spent like millions and millions of dollars fighting this ballot and the way they did it was illegal because they got the food companies to donate away with it should be transparent campaign finance. You have to be all transparent. It was all secret. They got caught. The Grocery Manufacturers America got fine eighteen million dollars the largest fine ever for an attraction for campaign finance violations but they appealed it and it was down to six million Puma and of course the ballot because they did all that work it didn't pass so they were successful. So what's a few million dollars when there have billions at stake so they're so corrupt in California was even worse for Soto taxes passed here in the twenty sixteen election in in many states? It's SORTA tax you pay an extra painting announced. Whatever for for sugar drink which by the way. It's been proven to reduce consumption dramatically. It works that's why he won't do it. Works and that's why the food industry so against it. So what the American Beverage Association which used to be called the American Soda Pop Association. Dan Was. They took his grazing. The created a ballot measure to prohibit any local taxes for being passed unless there's a two-thirds majority which would mean that you couldn't fund schools police stations fire stations local stuff and it would have crippled. Oklahoma's all across the state and had nothing to do with food but then they went at the last minute before as by the pass and they spend millions pushing this they went to governor Jerry Brown most liberal governor. We probably ever had in. America Governor Moonbeam these called. And they're like look you you you pass this preemptive law which means you can never pass another soda tax in California and we'll pull this image. So basically they got governor Brown to pass this preemptive law which means that. You're not allowed to go and pass another soda tax. Why why because they don't want taxes Razi crazy? Why didn't governor around doing because he didn't want his entire state local governments to be crippled highest new ballot measure? There was about to pass so it was all done behind closed doors and could never again. You can't now in California. Can't do the state's change the law back..
Bulletproof Your Kids Immune System with Integrative Pediatrician, Dr. Joel Gator Warsh
"Dr Joel Gator Wash. Welcome to the brokering podcasts. Thanks so much for having me here and I just want to start off with one thing. You're doing something really cool. I WANNA plug it. Because I'm not a parent yet but I know the first thing is that everybody's always asking me because they know him in this space who's an integrative pediatrician and I know you are here one in La. But there's not a lot of them that are out there the same way that are functional medicine and integrative doctors that are there for like adults. No there's so few integrated pediatricians and so. I hope there's GonNa be more in the future and we're trying to talk more about integrated pediatrics and get more pediatricians involved. But they're just really is very few people. I think there's like three to five in Los Angeles right. Which is crazy. Because there's so many here and everybody's so into all this holistic living in and wellness but anyways what I was leading up to is that you have an online summit coming up. Integrative pediatrics summit it's inaccurate. Integrative PEDIATRICS DOT COM. Just give a quick plug. Because I want people to hear this. I normally get the plugs and but any because there's so few pediatricians and we really want people to work with great practitioners out. Their parents who especially with young children are looking for resources. That are out there. And because there's not that many pediatricians that are available. Where DO I turn? Where do I go to so you have an online summit coming up? When does it happen? And what can people learn from the shore? That's going to be on March. Nineteenth to twenty third it's going to be at integrated pediatrics. Dot Com and we have a combination of top experts. From around the world we have integrated pediatricians. We have experts in various fields. Like homeopathy supplements meditation and we also have a bunch of celebrities as well. Who are interested in being involved From the MOM Perspective or the Dad perspective some of them might have either use integrated medicine for their own families who had kids that were sick or dealt with their own health issues in started really paying attention to this. And that's where I feel like most people get introduced. Integrative medicine is when they've been through the regular system and they get really frustrated with it or there isn't any solutions or all come back normal and so they look for maybe an alternate solution or maybe one of their friends had such a good result from something integrative and so then they start searching it out and then they realize how amazing some of the solutions can be and so that's where people get really plugged integrated medicine and so we're trying to feature that it's going to be a free event online for five days you get to watch everything one hundred percent free. There's no catch and we just want to get the information out there and introduce people to a lot of the integrative practitioners from around the country. Yeah so I don't start off that way but again if you're listening to this you probably are fascinated about that. And that's a great resource. It's free sign up okay. Let's jump in an interview. I will start with Hero's journey we already talked about it. There's so few integrative pediatricians that are out there how did you get into it yourself so for me? I got really frustrated with the regular system. The really short visits just treating antibiotics for everything and my wife was very holistic minded. You grew up in a very holistic family and seeing a lot of her friends go through the medical system for years and really not get better and then maybe to naturopathic doctor or Chinese medicine doctor and get better and to me. That was a lightbulb moment. That said you know. Maybe there's something more we need to learn. I don't WanNa just have to give antibiotics for everything. I WanNa have more solutions that we can do. That are a little bit more natural and gentle on the body and so that really pushed me to start learning about integrative medicine as well. I'm against Western medicine at all. I think there's so many amazing things that we have learnt and we have added through science and research and we have cures for cancer. And we we get sick with pneumonia and we can take an antibiotic can get better so the point of integrative medicine is not to say we shouldn't do Western medicine. You use it when you need it but there's a time and place for everything and and to me. There really shouldn't be the terms integrated medicine. Homeopathy supplements Functional Medicine Western Medicine Medicine. Which do whatever's best on the day and that's really what I've learned through my training. Yeah but sometimes you have to use those terms in the beginning because Just signify to people that you're thinking about a little bit differently so in regards to that thinking prior to meeting your wife how. She had that background where she grew up in a very holistic household. You were saying how did you grow up you know? How is your health like as a child? And what was your opinion on things that are in the space of integrative medicine you know because a lot of young doctors being doctors in my family That are there and sometimes they can have a little chip on their shoulder especially when they're graduated they're done residency either out there in the world and they're like well. I learned everything in the text books that I need to learn. I know it all. And there's no evidence for this. There's no evidence for that so what was your mindset like and how did you grow up and what was your health like a kid overall. I was pretty healthy by definitely was not very integrated minded at all. When I was growing up I grew up in Toronto and so I played a lot of sports. I played a lot of hockey and baseball was on the road for tournaments all the time and did not eat that healthy fast food all the time and I always had stomach issues. I always had stomach aches. Constipation bloating never really made the connection. I just thought it was normal and just dealt with it and as I got older though symptoms got worse and especially during my medical training worth stress was elevated I would have more stomach aches more issues and I never really put that together until after I met my wife and sort of eating some of her food and started seeing the things that she's doing and I started to feel better and that again was another lightbulb. Moment of. Oh maybe we need to be thinking about some of these foundations. Some of these things like our diet and it's it's so obvious that we do but I think we've forgotten about that a lot. We really don't focus on the foundations anymore. We just think about you know you have this symptom take this medication. And that's the way that we learn. Even a medical school is is how to treat something as opposed to for the most part how to prevent it. That's so key. I think you mentioned two important things in that. What you just shared the first thing is that most doctors who are in Functional Medicine Notch about medicine occupier. Whatever the modality might be or in the case of integrative medicine they have often had their own crisis and I think for the generation above us. Because how old are you thirty four? Okay some a little older than you thirty-seven. We're the same generation the generation above us the mark hymens of the world. The Dr Mark Hyman said world and the other Great Doctors Dr Andrew. Weil other people. They had major healing crisis. I mean mark. Dr Mark Hyman talks about a story but he was in China. He got like deathly ill for mercury toxicity. Many other factors is brain wasn't working and I think that as the Internet age has grown and we have more access to this information. We're more open minded. There's been doctors like yourself who just didn't feel well. They didn't feel great like my brother-in-law's a cardiologist and San Diego and he's part of that young doctor trend like you who just weren't feeling exactly that well learned about functional medicine. Integrative medicine made changes to the health and that caused them to think differently when it came to practicing so at that point in time. Where were you in that moment happened? Were you working in the hospital system? Did you have your own private practice? I never had that moment of practitioners. Did I think for me? It was when I was going through residency. Maybe Med school where I just got really frustrated with options available and the really big lightbulb moment for me was the first functional medicine course that I took and just learning things from the other perspective thinking about root cause. When I saw that I was like. Why didn't we learn? Why Am not thinking this way? It's so obvious. Why are we not thinking about? Why you have a rash. Why are we thinking about treating it and when you have a child? Who HAS A bad rash? There's nothing wrong with doing a medication. In that moment to make them feel better but if that rash keeps coming back we need to think. Why do they have their ashes? There's something in their diet. Something in their environment as opposed to just continually treating it and nobody really ever talks about the medical school or residency. Just really learn about the problem and the solution. But that's not the whole picture and so that really push me in the direction of Kenny to learn a little bit more any to think about this a little bit more and as I got into it seeing the success with it seeing how excited people got about it. That to me was what I wanted to start sharing this information. 'cause it's not that common out there there is stuff about adults and there's a little more information starting to come out but there's very little about children and what you can do and even as an integrative practitioner. There's not a lot of resources of how much do you get? I supplement for kids. What kind of supplement? Your dosages can be different. Kids bodies their brains having fully developed their right. It's a lot more subtle. The little things can have an impact on their body can but the reality is kids are so resilient that for the most part of the maybe a little baby. There's no reason why they shouldn't be able to use some of this stuff and do very well with it but the hard part is there isn't a lot of research to back up and when you talk about the medical model most western physicians will come right out and say well. Where's the evidence? Where's the evidence for this? Wears a clinical trial that this shows that it works and there isn't a lot of clinical trials for most of this stuff. There is some evidence for some supplements in some Protocols that you can do but for the most part isn't double blind controlled trials. Because nobody's doing it because you can't really do a double blank controlled trial ginger. Who's paying for that

"The producers of the Doctors Pharmacy podcast in two recent interviews. Dr Hyman and his guests spoke about EPA genetics and Howard behavior can influence which of our genes are turned on or off. Let's listen in as Dr Hyman talks with leading expert in Alzheimer's and Dementia Research Dr Marlins Saba aw so epigenetics is a is a fairly new field very exciting and the ideas that we can say that to things like diet exercise lifestyle stress and sleep lack of sleep that you're turning jeans on and off and that <hes> that we wanted in many cases turn genes off but in some cases we WANNA turn genes on and that would alter our health yeah and it's so possible I mean food is one of the most important and prevalent Dublin things that we are connected to every day alter our gene expression and this is one of the fundamental ideas a functional medicine so you'd Broccoli tastes good right but it also up regulates genes that increase preschool defy on which is you detoxifying live or work better. Yes you have green tea catechin but those up regulate genes that increase your ability to get rid of heavy metals so so there's credible research on these components in food that have these biological effects on our Jeanne. People think that you go to the doctor. They're gonNa fix you but the truth is eighty. percent of your health is determined by what you do not with us. That is the idea that people said in your in your remarks. Is that what your genetic attic profile that you're born with the it's like your fate and let freight and people are starting to challenge that idea is the idea and really think about it can. I take a genetic risk for Alzheimer's and create a life program that offsets that genetic risk so if I'm genetically prone prone to getting out sandwich can I create intervention program that would buffer mitigate or offset that risk domestic questions about it and we like precision health author precision medicine is a great example of that and that's a really critical point because if that's true in Alzheimer's we could try that across the board right in Diabetes Heart Disease Cancer <music>. All those disease states could respond in a maybe not in the same paradigm but in a similar paradigm to to alter those risks as well.

"Right. And maybe the tiny little updates but more, so I'd but mostly our education system doesn't really teach us the punch in, in the modern world. I mean how much nutrition education to begin in school? Do we really learn how to exercise properly or how they have like a better marriages, how to parent well or manager money be better leaders manage our money? None of that's immagination system. Subconscious engineering is a model where I bring on remarkable minds like you who have figured certain things out, and then we attempt to have the audience model what's going on in your mind. True understanding two things. First, your model of reality. Right. So you're models of reality. How does Mark Hyman see the world that's different from how other people see the world? That's. Model of reality. It's a belief that you have that unique to you sometimes. But beliefs are things that we can pick up from other people I can hear you share a belief in the damn. That's a pretty fricken empowering belief I want that. And someone can adopt that belief in the second thing we attempt to understand consciousness engineering a your habits. How do you eat? What do you eat? How do you exercise? How do you meditate, and then we help people model beliefs and model habits than you can become the best version of yourself. So that's really how my and that's what I want to go deep into, because, you know, from my perspective, if you wanna become conscious if you wanna be empowered in your life. If you want to actually be fully expressed in every area of your life, whether it's health, whether it's work, whether it's love, whether it's other relationships, whether it's whatever it is..

"Welcome to the doctors pharmacy. I'm Dr Mark Hyman, and as farm ac- with an F F AR y plays for conversations that matter and today's conversation matter all of you because it's with my friend, and colleague and groundbreaking neurologist, David Pearl mutter who you may know from the grain brain he is a board certified neurologist, four time New York Times bestselling author. He's got his MD from university of Miami. He's had many awards he has been on the aditorial board of the journal of Alzheimer's disease. He's published extensively in peer reviewed journals including archives of neurology. And a lot of other great journals. He lectures all over the world including the World Bank Columbia University. Scripts NYU Harvard few second rate institutions there, and he has published some amazing books. In fact, they guided me and my early practice as a functioning medicine, doctor one was called better brain was I think might have been. First one. I don't know if it was self published, but it was a great book and then grain brain just hit the world by storm. It's the surprising truth about wheat carbs and sugar with over a million copies in print any wrote another book about the gut and the brain called brain makers, which is also very fascinating book. He is really an extraordinary guy in his coming up on the new book called brainwash written with son Austin promoter, who's also doctor about the role of social media and the constant stresses on our brain. And what they're doing to our brain and our world. So I am so thrilled to have you here. David thank you for joining us on the doctors pharmacy. Well, I'm delighted to be here. And you know, the book was brain maker. But rainmakers actually makes me think about the gut bacteria more that they're building the brain. So that was I appreciate that, sir. My wife's a stand up comedian as one of her many skills, and she was recently going to do a skit on how her depression. Was caused by her gut microbes in how it wasn't that? She was depressed because some psychological reason it was because there are these bugs in her gut. They were causing depression. Fact, we had an very interesting experience recently just to talk about that for a minute where she was with our friend, Bert Osvaldo, who's a shaman in Chile, and he taught her how to make Saccharomyces using Bradbury's cook up the raspberries. You've put the probiotic on there. And then you eat it while we did it down there. It was great. But when she came back, she took it, and she got severely depressed. Like, unusually physically depressed. And it was because she was eating a cocktail that she made that didn't turn out. Right. And it was something that and it had a huge effect on her mood. So yes, actually, your brain makers. Well, yeah. Dr Mun mayor actually wrote a book about it. And really brought to our attention the role that our gut bacteria are playing in mood in how well our brains and working now. Well, our immune systems are working. So it's a bit of a revelation. It's pretty amazing now David you, and I go back a long time twenty five years. Maybe even and I was earlier, but I was so impressed by you. And you were so smart, and I was so nervous. Even that's in the past tense..

"Easy to kinda just think you can't do it because your life isn't structured for that. You can. And you might not always do it twice a day. I mean, but it's it's so powerful and easy to talk a little bit about the practicality of it. And what it is. And also the myth around the fact that people so I'm not good at meditating because my mind was shut the heck up. This is the number one reason why people think they can't meditate they think that the points to clear their mind, and I don't know who this is. He's telling everybody to clear their mind, Mike, we gotta find him. And we have to teach them how to meditate because then people sit down and like all right brain, stop thinking. She would like a snack. I don't know what Mark Hyman let's neck mentioning because they should eat. I'm thinking about my during meditation. Oh, no. I suck at meditation. I quit, and that's the beginning and the end of most people's career, and it makes me sad because he about me, they just think about my time and venue enlightenment. But it makes me sad. 'cause people potentially rob themselves of a lifetime of bliss and fulfilment because they're judging themselves based on misinformation. So the good news here if you've ever tried meditation, and if you're sort of cooking dinner in tuned out, listen up, this is super important if you ever tried meditation and felt like a failure. Because you could not clear mind. The good news is that the mind thinks involuntarily, just like the heartbeats involuntarily. So trying to give your brain commanded shot up is as impactful is trying to give your heart command to stop beating. It does not work. You can impressive. Change of breathing. And yes, so and then that's what a lot of techniques..

"I'm Dr Mark. Hyman welcome to the doctors, pharmacy. That's f. a. r. m. y. place for conversations to matter. And today's conversation, which chef Marco is going to be one that really matters will blow your mind because it's a whole different way of thinking about food and cooking and the meaning of food. It's pretty awesome. Now, Marco is chef. He's arrested tour. He's a cookbook, Arthur Markinor at promotes delicious, simple health food. He opened in two thousand and three something called her. It's a restaurant in the east village Manhattan which into many times because it's so darn good. His local fallen. He's been re really been promoted all over. He's he's a two star review from New York Times. He's got the prestigious outstanding restaurant nomination from their James beard foundation, and in thousand seventeen Marco won the James beard foundation award for the best chef in New York. That is no easy feat considering how many unbelievable restaurants that are here. He's also the founder bro. This is something you better pay attention to, which is a bone broth company a popular to go window, serving coffee cups, not of coffee, but hot nursing, organic grass-fed bone broth. Now, bro along with the recipes in good food day, reflect his renewed attention to his health and wellness, and you can check out that story in the introduction in the book. Now, his first book is I cook book with Salta taste, which is pretty awesome. Was a major success and nominated for the James beard award in two thousand ten. He's been written about New York Times and food and wine. He was a finalist on the next iron chef a judge on chopped and top Shafiul. So appeared on today and warning American Martha Stewart Nightline and he lives in New York with his wife and two daughters. Now, Mark on I, I met on a boat and was called the summit boat, and it was a bunch of creative entrepreneurs. Mazing people any big stand of his Broto bone broth, and you had to wait in line for like an hour to get this bone broth, and it was so good and it was so. Before you really started having his commercial avenue on this, but it was so good. I think probably inspired him and it was great to connect when we're on a panel together, talking about health and wellness and things are not typical often for traditional chefs. I mean, I remember being kaneohe ranch twenty years ago, and I stood up at a meeting with the chefs, nutrition Sadako the owners. I said, food is medicine, and we need to focus on that here. And this was a long time ago and the chefs got up and go. This is not a effing ho hospital. This is a, you know, a spy. We have to focus on taste and I'm like, you don't think of case to have great stuff. So let's talk a little bit Marco, welcome. Thank you be here. Let's talk about hearth, which is this amazing restaurant and. The word Hirth are hearth is is about home. It's about real food. It's about cooking. It's so so many great connotations. And again, I've been there number times. It's amazing, and he celebrates food and the way that most restaurants don't. I go there and I look at his menu. This menu we're gonna post linked to, but it's pretty. It's pretty cool. And on the back of the menu, I mean the front of the menus, it was.

"Welcome to the doctors, pharmacy. I'm Dr Mark Hyman and that's far Masih f. a. r. m. a. c. y. place for conversations that matter today honored to have an extraordinary scientists, leader and thinker in the field of food and health nutrition policy doctor, Dr ish Maza ferry and from tufts. He's currently the John Mayer professor of nutrition and medicine, and the dean of the Friedman school of nutrition science and policy at Tufts University. He's authored more than three hundred scientific publications on the dietary parties to reduce cardiovascular disease, diabetes obesity in the US and global. He served in numerous advisor roles, including the US and Canadian governments, American Heart Association. The global burden disease study, the World Health Organization and the United Nations. He's been featured in the New York Times of post Street Journal NPR time magazine and many, many other news outlets in twenty sixteen Thomson Reuters named him, one of the world's most influential scientific minds and I agree. Dr Muzzaffar received his b biological science from Stanford five, beta Kappa and Columbia alpha omega alpha, and his clinical training and internal medicine and cardiovascular medicine from Stanford and university of Washington. He olds an MPA from the university of Washington, a doctorate in public health from Harvard. He's married, has three wonderful children and actively trains as a black belt second degree in taekwondo. And he's huge inspiration to me because he's one of the few physicians and leaders in healthcare that connect the dots between what we eat, our social Justice issues, the economy, chronic disease climate and much much more. Welcome Dr modifying. Thank you, Mark. Great to be here. So you're kind of a interesting researcher scientists. Cardiologists. Took a left turn somewhere or a right turn. Our our radio is right, right. Turn you. You're cardiologists from Harvard. You had, obviously education public health, but. Somehow, at some point, your life realized that food was important, and you began to focus your crown researching food and keeping him one of the leading scientific investigators, what we should be eating and also now run the tufts school, nutrition, science policy, which is an interesting school because there's very few schools of nutrition and policy. And how did that happen? What was the inspiration, the shift in your life personally, that led you to go? Right? I went to medical school to try to heal people and save lives and in medical school, and then in internal medicine residency in cardiology fellowship throughout that journey, it was so obvious to me that food was the biggest issue facing patients. And yet we didn't learn very much about nutrition or prevention other than sort of chemistry, some enzymes. And so that that was the first kind of, you know, incredible irony and paradox that that struck. Me. We other doctor goes through and doesn't have that insight. This food doesn't have much to do with disease. Than that, I think a lot of them, yeah, I think a lot of them realize it, but you know, you're so busy and there's so much going on, you know, who knows some more cast to do lots of things to do. Yeah. And then the second thing that I realized which really struck me was. So I said, well, I need to learn about this myself. And so I started reading diving into literature and reading everything I could find. And this was in the nineties and I realized that, you know, even the current, I trick I'd lines then which we're all about low fat, low saturated, fat diets didn't match the evidence even twenty years ago. So that was the second huge kind of wakeup for me was that, you know, this ought to be between what we're told us, the party light of what we should eat and what the science actually said was different..
