Alex Berenson Explains How He Was Banned From Twitter for Telling the Truth
"Alex, you strike me as somebody who's, you know, a bit old fashioned because you're a journalist that actually looks for the truth and the fact. Can you explain to me as such, why you don't have a Twitter account anymore? What happened? Sure. Well, you know, I want to say something right off the top. There's probably a lot of things that you and I disagree about. I think that is a fair bet. Right? You know, I think we probably disagree pretty strongly, for example, about January 6th. But the reason that I, you know, I basically am a conservative media person now in terms of who will have me on is because the left is so intolerant of discussion about the coronavirus about the value of non pharmaceutical interventions by which I mean lockdowns and masks and school closures and other stuff that we did last year that basically proved useless as a lot of data shows. And now it's gotten even worse with vaccines and this is why I am no longer on Twitter. You know, I was very, very critical of a lot of things last year, but when I started to ask questions about the vaccines that people didn't like, you know, that's ultimately what got me banned from Twitter. And the irony is a lot of the stuff that I said, you know, starting both both last spring, but especially over the summer about how the vaccine seemed to be losing any power to stop infection or transmission. I mean, those are essentially conventional wisdom right now, which is one reason why there was this desperate push for boosters. But you know I said it three months too early and I got banned for it. It's crazy

The Omicron Non-Emergency
"The non emergency, according to The Wall Street Journal. The World Health Organization obviously is saying that the new variant poses a high new risk. And that beyond the large mutations in its spike protein, that we don't know that if this has increased transmissibility or could make vaccine antibodies less effective. South African doctors say that the cases are milder and cause different symptoms noticeably fatigue. Many are young people who might be expected to have milder symptoms. But breakthrough infections have also been mild. I don't think it will blow over. But I think it will be a mild disease hopefully. Despite all of this, European countries are now entertaining another round of lockdowns. Because they worried that socialized healthcare systems could get overwhelmed. This is The Wall Street Journal I'm reading from. 92% of adults in America have COVID antibodies. 92%. As of September from vaccines or prior infection. That means only 8% of America hasn't yet been exposed to the virus. Governor Cathy hoka, who of course is trying to win another term, she hasn't even won one term.

Steve Deace: There Have Been Two Constants About COVID Since March 2020
"Very few people have covered coronavirus the political implications epidemiologic ones Better than you you've been a very sober mind on this And of course that's made you a target You've written a few great books on in Fauci and bargain and others You know is this something like Groundhog Day again with a crime here I mean how many times are we gonna go through this It's the same cycle Steve over and over again A new variant emerges by the way which happens with respiratory viruses often This is nothing unusual right We don't get the data We're not sure what the R nought is the fatality rate the case fatality rate the infection but we don't know what even The media goes crazy gets everybody losing their minds Draconian lockdowns ensue none of it works Everything kind of dies down but there you go boom another variant appears I mean why not summing that up accurately You are summing it up accurately And what's particular sinister about this one there's actually a report out in just the last hour that shows that this new variant was actually detected in Europe that they've actually traced it to Europe weeks ago And it was just not reported to the medical community or to the world until the medical community in South Africa flagged it that it was brought to them actually And they're the ones that flagged it And then they got repaid of course by being quarantined from the rest of the world what's really sinister about this is if you look at the timing of this you know it does seem to coincide right around the moment that South Africa said to the WHO and to Pfizer that they were not going to sign up for their recurring every 6 months three months 90 days We don't know yet We don't even know what fully vaccinated means now because we don't know how many times we have to keep boost during you It is kind of funny that shortly after they said we're not going to do that We're going to opt out of that Shortly thereafter lo and behold here is this new variant from South Africa and they need to be cordoned off and quarantined from the rest of the world Then there have been two constants Since this began on March 16th 2020 there have been two constants Number one whatever you're not allowed to talk about right now on Facebook or Twitter will be proven true in 3.9 months later That's number one Number two there can be no control groups Because control groups give us observational truth They bring us to objective realities okay And so that's why we don't have random controlled studies on masks That's why they don't want last year We had to ignore Sweden when they didn't lock down and everybody else did We went from being told for 20 years by left the blue check marks we got to be like Sweden to now they're like Sweden rectum barely knew I don't even know where to tell the sweetness It's like okay And then now it's the same thing on vaccine This is why everybody has to get even the naturally immune like me I had COVID back in May It was awful for about a day and a half It felt like there was a entire iron on my chest okay But now I have natural immunity No there can be no control group that shows that maybe our vaccines don't work or have waning efficacy or lo and behold might even be causing three antibody dependent enhancement the variants to become worse And so all of this has been about no control group and things that you are not permitted to say until certain times Those are things that are not about health and they're about power and control Those are authoritarian

"Hello everyone and welcome back to the final acupunctures my light episode of symptoms of viral infection. Now i'm going to go over. Just a few more of the basic symptoms that you should pay attention to and they can be as a result of having been all being a having been or being infected with a viral infection now. The next one is fatigue and many individuals mistake fatigue for just being tired now. Now there's a different you see when you're defensive chee to an acupuncturist when you defensive. Chee is fighting an exterior pathogenic factor. That is just a strong defensive. G put up a big fight and they'll be symptoms of chills fever and so forth and salt and sometimes it may go from the defensive level to the key level which is the next level the first level of dealing with a pathogen internally and sometimes eventually the body can eventually overcome and fight it off but at that stage. It's usually best of course to seen acupunctures because a simple herbal formula or treatments to nourish defensive chee is best recommended and during this process of your body's defensive chee trying to fight off a virus it it gets worn down you become fatigued. You begin to feel fatigued as a result and you feel as if just trying to do. The simplest tasks and life is painstaking. Like you just can't do it. It hurts so much and more times than not. If you've experienced viral infection you tend to have experienced so experience extreme fatigue and this this fatigue more times not is full body fatigue and as a result of this fight between defensive chee and the virus you begin to become chief efficient.

"Hello everyone and welcome back to another episode of acupuncture is my life now. Today's episode is going to be the first of a three part series super important overwhelming demand. I've been asked to discuss this for weeks. Now whereas individuals are literally contacting acupunctures. My life disappointed that we have yet to do what was requested by many podcast discussing symptoms of viral infections. So this podcast will be the first of three which i can understand because they were quite a few symptoms that will discuss and some of them. Many individuals do not tie to it actually being symptom a viral infection. So i'll discuss those. But i'll start out with the basic ones because many individuals are unaware like viruses are really really tiny. Microscopic type of agents that exist inside of living cells and he sells are considered wholesales. They need these cells in order to reproduce and replicate now we live we trillions of different types of viruses inside of us and millions or billions of different strands of bacteria without these organisms existing. Inside of us. We don't exist we can exist now. You have some you more. Common basic viruses like the common cold the flu pneumonia but a lot of times being infected by virus it can pass and some of us may not even realize we've been infected with a virus because with very healthy we take care of ourselves. We see acupunctures on a regular basis along with annual visits to opposition but they're individuals whose immune systems are not that strong whether it's to evokes most cases to a pre existing condition chronic illness autoimmune disorder cancer. Or just the fact that we just flat out eat junk. Food eat processed foods fast food. Don't exercise sit around all day and sleep. And if you've listened to many about previous podcasts we speak against but you see viruses if not kept under control any hang around too long can be deadly. So i don't recommend you take a virus lightly. You know some will say all get the flu. I'll get whatever even a common cold. It can attest size into something more serious depending on your health which is why i say over and over seeing acupuncture on a regular basis and it doesn't have to be every week or every two weeks. He can be once a month. Once to change of season that is determined between both your acupuncturists and yourself but one of the more common symptoms of a viral infection fever. And it doesn't have to be hike a mild one. You can feel yourself and notice how film little warm see. This old depends on the type of virus in which you've been infected by but usually it'll start out mild and you hope it stays that way and they need eventually passes but there were times where it will get worse when symptoms persist the temperature. You fever will go up temperature and you. You have individuals who've experienced. Let's say even a hundred and five degrees fahrenheit as a result of being infected by a virus you see to an acupuncturist. We understand this high temperatures assign at your body's protective cheek is engaged in an attempt to ward off and exterior pathogenic factor in this case virus and a stronger your protective cheese relative to you being really healthy and you end if you're infected by or have been affected by strong pathogenesis case being a virus more times than not. You're going to have a high fever. Because at battle between uchi and his pathogenic factors gonna go hard. And that's what's going to raise your fever now if you are seeing in acupunctures on a regular basis. I won't even say that if you catch it in its acute phase and you run to cnn acupunctures. They would look to support the bodies defensive ci with our the acupuncture herbs to potentially prevent the fever from getting too high and your body basically dispersing with the spelling this pathogenic factor because of your fever becomes too high. It can cause a lot of the it can cause other health concerned. So you really wanna keep you fever under control by seeing an acupuncturist. Another symptom can be muscle aches. Because normally when you're affected by a virus it's common to experience muscle aches especially if you've been affected by the flu you feel muscle pain all over europe. And.

Lauderdale florida gotten in line as soon as he was eligible. Hit already done battle with the virus and wasn't interested in going there again. A for the article does episodes based on how stuff works spoke with him by email. He said i first tested positive in august of twenty twenty and spent two in the hospital. Because i was having a hell of a time. Just catching my breath. It had to be up. There is one of the worst experiences of my life. It's like being underwater and about to come up for fresh air and halfway through drawing that fresh air a tightness interrupts at night got both doses of the pfizer vaccine in may of twenty twenty one and despite that he wasn't too surprised when he tested positive again in july he said i was more of having a feeling like. Wow i should just play the lottery because this luck is incredible. If you know what i mean. I was mentally preparing to go back into the hospital for another horrible couple days. Fortunately his second go round would covered. Nineteen was nothing like the first. His symptoms were mild. And short lived. And experienced that is only strengthened. His appreciation for the vaccine might said after seeing firsthand my experience with vid with and without the vaccine. It's given me enough faith in the medical system that vaccinations are doing their part to protect us. It's not a shield one hundred percent preventing the virus from getting to us but it's a relentless warrior who really keeps the worst of it at bay. Still it upsets a lot of people that covert nineteen is possible at all post vaccine. How does that even happen. How stuff works also spoke by. Email was three banerjee a faculty member in walden universities. Phd in public health program. He explained when a person gets cove in nineteen even after being fully vaccinated. This is known as a breakthrough infection since it breaks through the developed. Immune response this type of covert breakthrough. Infection is not unusual indeed. It's actually to be expected given the viruses. Recent mutations how stuff works also spoke with dr airing glatt a representative for the infectious diseases. Society of america and chair of medicine at mount sinai southnassau in oceanside new york he said with the delta variant. It is certainly more common. These variants have higher transmissibility than the earlier strains they also have higher viral loads. So they're more transmissible even to people who are vaccinated. So this is a concern. A breakthrough infections in general are nothing new. The medical community sees them every single year with influenza. However many people mistakenly believed that vaccines provide complete and total protection. But the truth is that as with flu. Vaccines the covered. Nineteen vaccines won't prevent you from being infected. And they're meant to increase your body's ability to fight the virus effectively vaccines don't prevent all infections. They just make them less likely and prevent serious complications and death when those infections do occur. A pharmaceutical companies for their part have been straightforward from the get go about vaccine efficacy both pfizer and no reported efficacy rates of ninety to ninety five percent for the original strain advisors drops to eighty eight percent when faced with the newer more contagious delta mutation and madonna is believed to perform about the same but breakthrough infections of covert nineteen are typically so mild the centers for disease control and prevention or cdc stopped tracking them. Starting on may first of twenty twenty one in such cases results in hospitalization or death so four. Cdc tracking purposes a mild case of cove in nineteen after vaccination is not currently considered a breakthrough infection banerjee said nationally forty six us states and territories voluntarily reported and thousand two hundred sixty two breakthrough infections to the cdc between january first and april thirtieth of two thousand twenty one. A by comparison. There were eleven point eight million covered nineteen diagnoses in total during the same period. A through july nineteenth. Twenty twenty one. There were five thousand nine hundred and fourteen patients with cove in nineteen vaccine richter infections. Who were hospitalized or die the us out of more than one hundred and fifty nine million people fully vaccinated nationwide and to do the math and put it another way. According to this data fewer than one tenth of one percent of the reported cases of cove in nineteen from january through april occurred in people who were already vaccinated. So let's say you cut a penny ten pieces and for every hundred cases of cove in nineteen. You have every dollars worth just one of those slivers of a penny represents how many vaccinated people got cove in nineteen and furthermore according to this data through the middle of july fewer than three hundreds of one percent of people who were vaccinated wound up either in the hospital or dying from a breakthrough case cove in nineteen. So take one of those slivers of a penny and cut it into ten. Even smaller hair fines livers then count out three of those. That's how many vaccinated people got seriously.

America's long-term care providers are committed to going the extra mile to protect vulnerable seniors. But now they face a crisis. On top of a crisis nearly two thousand nursing homes are at risk of closing their doors this year due to the pandemic our leaders in congress must end this crisis and protect long-term care visit save our seniors dot org for more information. This is kevin roose. I'm a tech columnist at the new york times. My job is not just to do glorified tech support. It's to talk to the people who are actually making the decisions that govern our digital lives like interviewing the ceo of youtube about how they're trying to deal with their extremism problem or talking to mark zuckerberg about free speech on the internet. I'm trying to talk to the people who make the rules that we all live by and the people on the other side who are affected by those rules. And this is what all of my colleagues in your doing. We're trying to distill all of this complexity into something that people can understand subscribers support all of this work so please join us and subscribe to the new york times. You can do that at ny. Times dot com slash subscribe. So you just said that we're at an inflection point another inflection point independent mc so. Let's talk more about that. The last time we had you on the show you had told us that it seemed the pandemic was becoming endemic which in some ways felt like progress because it meant that there might be flare ups here and there mostly in small ways in vulnerable unvaccinated communities. But i'm wondering now if the transmissibility of delta and what we're learning about these breakthrough infections of the vaccinated changes our understanding of this. It would seem that it does. It really does when we had. That conversation. seemed like we were in a very good place. Because we had vaccinated a certain proportion of the population and we thought we knew what the virus would do given that percent of the population being protected that he would only flare up in areas. Where the vaccination rate was very low. But now if we're talking about this incredibly contagious variant. And we're talking about may be vaccinated. People also contributing to the spread. It's not going to be quite so isolated anymore. So i think we're going to have to put off that concept of the virus being endemic for a bit longer and so as a result. How do we live in this. Not endemic world but this kind of longer term pandemic world. What kind of adjustments will be required to inhabit that space. The most important thing we should really do is get those vaccination rates up right. We have to reach seventy eighty ninety percent. We have to get to all of the people who are actually willing to get the vaccine but just haven't had a chance yet. That's something like ten percent so we'll gain ten points there. There are another ten points gained if we get to all the people who are just hesitant who have questions who are waiting to see and are maybe a little afraid and those people could be persuaded maybe by the right kinds of leaders speaking to them by more republican leaders for example talking about vaccination more often in a positive light or church leaders for local leaders talking about it. and then there's that last twenty percents or so of people who just do not want to get vaccinated and maybe we won't get to them but even if we can get to this other twenty percent. I think we have a really good chance of pushing this virus back quite a bit okay. So that's vaccinations. What else are we going to have to do. In terms of adjustments. This is going to be very unpopular. But i think we all need to be wearing mosques again even those of us who are vaccinated the last few days. I've been talking to a lot of public health. Experts and every single one of those people has told me that they do wear masks. Endorse that they. In fact never stopped that they wear masks indoors in places where there might be a lot of people but they also socialize mostly outdoors. That really took me by surprise. But what they're saying is that delta is now enough of a threat that even people who are vaccinated should be thinking about wearing masks when they're not at home So these experts are telling you because of delta because of the risk of breakthrough infections masks should now be put back on in places like schools workplaces grocery store all of those and also outdoor places like sports arenas and concert stadiums where people are packed in tight. That's right you know this. This is not. What the cdc is telling us the cdc. Which is the authority on. All these things is explicitly saying that. It's not advising us to wear masks indoors. And as a result. I now go to the local grocery store and don't always wear a mask. So why is there now. A disjunction between what these experts are telling you and what the centers for disease control and prevention is telling the whole country. Well michael the. Cdc guidance was always controversial even when they came out with it. A lot of people were saying they're still so many unvaccinated people. Is this really wise. And i think what's happened now. Now that we know about these breakthrough infections and especially now that we know about delta. It's really seeming like we should all be wearing masks. That's what these experts are telling me. And i think the cdc is under a lot of pressure from the white house and from public health experts to revisit the guidance and to maybe change it but in my conversations with the cdc. When i've asked them about this they've been pretty farm. They've said there is no new evidence to have them change their decision and so they don't have any plans of changing their mosque guidance. What they've said to me is that their guidance already allows local jurisdictions to make decisions based on what's happening in their community and so a given state or accounting might decide to do something differently. But at a national level the cdc sticking to its guns so cdc says that this can and should be dealt with at the local level so how our local governments dealing with the question of masks and delta right now like so much ellison this pandemic michael. It's very patchy. Some local governments are being very proactive and reacting very quickly to rising rates and asking their residents to wear masks again l. a. did this the bay area is moving towards it. Province town reinstated a mask advisory and is considering a mass mandate after the ad their outbreak. But on the other hand. Arkansas still has a ban on mask mandates so so much depends on who the leader is. How much access. They have to public health experts. How much they believe. In science how inclined they are to take action quickly so i want to inhabit for just a moment skepticism of the idea that everyone's going to have to put masks back on and i think that's skepticism would come from people who think to themselves vaccination means were at relatively low risk of getting sick and meanwhile our own government is telling us. We don't need to wear masks. So what would you say to that. What are the experts. You're talking to see that skepticism. That we don't really have to put masks back on.

"Systematic way. One on because we knew that breakthrough infections where a possibility and we expected enough of them that it would have been a waste of time for the cdc to have been tracking every single one of them or at least that was the thinking then of course now it looks like maybe it would have been a good thing to track them just so we could at least say how much more frequent with delta than with any other variant but even with that uncertainty of not knowing how widespread it is. We can at least see that people who are vaccinated still. Don't have much to worry about if you're vaccinated. You're still not going to get very sick. You're still not going to end up in the hospital. The uncertainty really is in. How likely somebody who is vaccinated in infected can pass the virus onto somebody else. That's really. I think where the uncertainty starts to play a bigger role. And why does that uncertainty matter. The uncertainty of how and how much an infected vaccinated person ends up spreading the virus una population level. It matters because if a lot affects needed people are spreading the virus to others. Then it's another whole source of cases that we hadn't really considered that's a whole other set of infections that we have to worry about on an individual level. Some of us have kids and elderly parents and we may have relatives or friends. Who are immuno-compromised where we may come into contact with somebody who has unvaccinated for whatever reason and so even if we're vaccinated if we can spread the virus to others were putting all of those people at risk so we do really need to find out how often this is happening. And how much virus we might be passing onto someone else will. You're describing is a very unsatisfying moment. Where there are breakthrough cases because cds. He doesn't track them. We don't know how many there are and we don't know exactly how much vaccinated infected person someone experiencing a breakthrough. Infection is spreading that virus around. So that's a lot of uncertainty. It really is an. it's a bit maddening. Because it felt like we had gotten to a point where we got to know this virus a little bit. We knew what could do. We knew what we were facing and delta has really changed that entire calculation. There are just so many more questions than i think we expected to have at this point feels a little bit like an inflection point. Another.

Well, , Anura has just launched an appeal to raise funds for it to be able. . To continue responding to the consequences of covid nineteen, , the immediate emergency of course is a health emergency and making sure that the Palestinian refugee community and the staff are all safe. . The other immediate emergency is making sure that the Palestinian refugee community has access to all the critical services that's on your what gifts them even though the way we deliver these services has changed. . So for instance, , needs to have access to medical services, , but they can no longer come to the Anura health centers instead on health staff, , <hes> proceeds through telemedicine and home delivery of. . Drugs, , right. . So people are getting their essential health needs but I think what was most alarming about what you said over the weekend was that the number of covid infections really are starting to spike alarmingly could you make a bit more detail about that owner is very concerned about the spike in numbers of covid nineteen across the countries we work, , and so we've seen a spike in the West Bank over the last few weeks but also a spike in Lebanon recently, , spy can Gaza with until not very long ago was relatively contained. . We also saw a spike in Jordan and Syria would the conflict we hear about. . But there is very little data and information coming from there. So . everywhere we work seems to be becoming worse and the point is that you're able to keep it at bay if you like the infections of this new corona virus, , because you were helping some of the five point, six , million registered Palestine Refugees in the middle, , East with what they needed to stay at home and keep away from others.

You can understand that given the scale of the social economic impact of Covid, nineteen , around the world it's only worse on vulnerable communities like refugee communities and in particular Palestinian refugee communities. .

Early, , signs are all very exciting and very positive students across the fields we work at. . Enron are extremely excited to go back to school. . We're talking about half a million girls and boys in over seven hundred schools. . We're talking about a big cohort of people and a bit cohort of people who work committed in the last academic year to continuing their learning even though it was remote and often difficult. . When you're a Palestine refugee, , you don't necessarily have an individual tablet and constant internet coverage and yet the. . Students that went on learning. . Last year was really high and this is something we are very proud of this year. . We have several scenarios in place either the children go fully back to school physically while respecting social distancing in hygiene rules and everything where they have a blended approach. .

Welfare were tested however, , some of the strengths of some institutions were also tested in the case of Anura because we have a very long and solid experience and education in emergencies for example, , were able to shift very quickly to distance learning and to supporting students and families, , and the teachers and the education staff to continue education the same for health services we do have that experience, , which unfortunately we took from various wars and conflicts and emergencies, but , it's an experience that's helped us well in this lockdown and closure face because of covid nineteen. .

Go through the five feet, but then there people already there sitting at tables there socially distance. Of course you know one table apart, but they've got. You know they don't have mask on because you can eat with a mask on yet. Until maybe we get permanent mass installed on her face faces in little openings, but the science there. Wasn't really accurate. You know like that five feet, but then once you go pacify feet. Take your mask off, and you can each her. You know whatever your therefore, but he's a very strange experience. Because the waitress had on, the has metsu she had on the face shield. She had on the mask at that point I was like why be here in like there's so much that goes into it, and it's so abnormal. We should just go ahead and you know. Make dinner ourselves have family. Get together something like that. It's just an added. stressor is so much uncertainty in all. The tables had to be labeled that this table has been sanitized in, you know. We've hit it with the flame thrower all these different stuff just to feel comfortable going outside, and it was like this was like a you know there's a strip mall and everybody is just a very dystopia and situation, and this is the situation that we're facing right now. There is a very infectious. Virus that is that we're dealing with as a society and at its core. We Really WanNA. Look at this what we've been dedicated to. How do we get our citizens healthier? so that were not as susceptible to this virus in the mini viruses that are to come because this is right now. This is just the first of many that we're going to be faced with as humanity you know, and the thing that is overlooked in that I've really been working to up level the conversation is. As a species? What are the things that make us more susceptible to viral infections? What are the things that we can do to help? Improve our bodies response because in truth we've had such a relationship with viruses throughout human evolution that we are in fact, the human genome is eight percent over eight percent in dodge in his viruses that we are. Our genome is made of. We've had such interaction with viruses. We are made viruses on that level talking about our human genome, what our jeans are made of the human genes with the things that make us human. We're part virus. And even more tangible aspect because I think there's really a hard pill for us to swallow as society right now that we are virus ourselves. But you know this is something that we can test track now. We have some affirmation to the fact that we all are carrying upwards of three hundred trillion virus particles in and on our bodies all the time. We are. We're like a playground for viruses and. Pathogenic! Many of them <hes>. Symbiotic. But this equation really plays into. How healthy are we interact with other people's virus load? How healthy are we or what can happen to damage our health immune system health that even the pathogenic viruses that were carrying right now can become opportunistic and take advantage of our system and make us sick.
"infections" Discussed on Diet Science
"So D-. What's the topic for this week this week? We're talking about a particular little fruit called elderberry elderberry. Yeah, they're little little fruit almost grow on a vine, grapes, <hes> and they have actually it's kind of known as black elderberry, because it has almost like the blackberry color. Okay, and but it almost looks like a blueberry <hes> so. So <hes> and many people may have heard of like elderberry. Wine was just about to say. Berry Jam Right. Yeah, so elderberry has been around for a very long time, and in fact it's been used medicinally by the native Americans, and by people in Europe, as a preventative treatment for infections and <hes> even for wound, healing, <hes> so <hes>, but it it has garnered some more recent attention in <hes> you know as it because it was found to be very effective against the H, one N, one flu virus Oh <hes>. In fact, there were studies showing that <hes>. It, it worked in a couple of different ways against that one was as a preventive meaning that if you had it in your system, and then we're exposed to the virus that it prevented, you know basically like stopped the <hes>, the virus from getting into host cells within the body, so prevented the infection altogether, and then other studies showed that another way that it was beneficial in in the flu virus. Was that it? <hes> if it, if you already were infected that it could actually like. Stop the infection from getting worse. Oh, so it had a so it works in two different ways in in relation to particular flu virus. So it got a lot of attention. <hes> in fact it, you know I mean it's been around because of that with the flu. And so people have been <hes> getting either extracts or or syrups of it, and sometimes they can come in capsules as a dried extract. And taking it as a preventive against the flu, so <hes> obviously during this cova time. They're probably taking it for that or any any evidence that it can help with that. Well that's where it starts to get a bit. <hes> controversial and it also gets to be a little bit <hes> like scary, because you have to really know whether or not, it's the right thing to be taking at the right time so <hes> and some of the where this kind of comes from. Was that <hes> people started you know when when covid became you know a pandemic. People started buying up elderberry supplements off. You know the Internet Mac I remember you. In early March every place that I looked including my own sources for physician grade elderberry. It was all out. And, then like you know back order. Yeah, I mean. People were just buying it up like crazy, and so you know obviously people were thinking I've got to get this stuff. 'cause he's list. We know that it can protect against certain flu, viruses and <HES>, but the thing is, is that we? We obviously have no research. Right on whether it can be effective against Kovic nineteen virus <hes>, however, <hes> I wanted to give our listeners just a little bit of background on. Why <hes> why it was considered to be a potential. <hes> you know supplement that could help people with their immunity. Okay <hes>, so there was a research research study that was that was published in two thousand nine, and it demonstrated that <hes> elderberry have particular fighter nutrients in them called flavonoids that <hes> they bind to that influenza as one n one of. The virus in you know in the <hes> in the host cell, so they protect it from infecting the host cell, and that was the the study that a lot of this was based off. The also found that it's very high in vitamin C.. which is another <hes> you know nutrient that's essential with antiviral properties. So you know so there's so that so that was out there that the thing about <hes> elderberry that's concerning though is if so as a preventative. The the experts are saying it's great for that as a preventative, because if you don't have the virus <hes>. And you want to protect yourself from it. It's very probable that it will you know it can be helpful in preventing you from getting it?
"infections" Discussed on Precisione: The Healthcast
"Regarding precision healthcare from the brightest people people in the world. Today we have a very special guest tonight. I'm so excited to speak with her. Today we have Dr Crystal Eisenhower Doctrine. Crystal Eisenhower's one of the rising stars of American biotechnology after more than twenty five years in medical research in biotech she was is named founding. CEO of a perio mix. This is a company that harnesses the power of next generation. DNA sequencing to who identify any known pathogen. Whether it's bacteria viruses fungi or parasite perio mix is the only company Anthony of its kind and scope in the world throughout Dr Eisenhower's career. She has demonstrated strong leadership in business and science and has dedicated herself to abridging the translational gap between these two worlds crystal. Welcome to the show. Good morning thanks for having me no problem. We're excited to talk to you. One of the first things we might WanNa do is kind of define some of the term so everybody knows who we're talking about so and you tell us a little bit about what next-generation DNA sequencing is and and how your work is bridging. This translational gap that we were talking about a minute ago. Sure so traditionally when we have wanted to identify an infection we look for one thing at a time and we've done that through a microscope microscope lens. We've done that by looking at the proteins that that coat the surface of the microbe. We've done that by looking at the person's thousands immune response against the micro-organism were we've we've had some newer technologies that can look at small snippets of DNA in that microorganism organism sequencing is is a completely new way to be able to look for these microorganisms. And what this is is a technology where we can pull all of the DNA out of the sample and re can I use this process called halt sequencing we can create a genetic blueprint or DNA blueprint of everything. That's in the sample. So we're looking at thousands thousands of fragments of DNA instead of just one fragment of DNA and this gives us the ability to see far more than we ever could see before awesome so somebody goes to the hospital and they're sick and the fever. The hospital does blood cultures urine cultures all kinds of cultures cultures. How is that different than this kind of test? What what kind of different information might we get through? Culturing is great great assuming that whatever is causing the infection can actually grow in culture. Ninety percent of all microorganisms are incapable of growing and standard entered laboratory cultures. So what has happened is we've completely missed so many things that are really there and that's resulted. Sit in people being told they have no infection when in fact they really do. One example is before with a large number of people who have chronic urinary tract issues and they've been told they have no infection because their urine culture is negative but when we run our testing we see that they're in culture is absolutely not negative. It's just that the micro organisms that we are able to identify through do the DNA are not able to grow in the urine culture. And so we just haven't had the right tools to be able to see the full picture Asked what's been going on in these particular cases while so I guess you know if if you do have a positive blood culture positive urine culture in like the acute houseful setting a probably means that you must be really sick if I guess. The organism is able to grow that much of if ninety percent doesn't usually grow grow that about right yes and now it just means that the the right kind of organism was there. There was an organism there that was able to grow in in. We've we've thought about infection in terms of just a few few hundred microbes so everybody knows about staph infection Mersa hello everybody knows about strep infection. Things like strep throat everybody knows about HIV. Everybody knows about Seedorf but the reality is there are tens tens of thousands of micro organisms. That can cause illness in a human body and the more we do our testing in the more the medical world looks at the complete microbiome of the human body the more we are able to connect these lesser known and previously not identified microbes with these chronic conditions or with these these overt infections. This is pretty cool. So do they have this kind of technology in the hospitals yet to do. You're Kinda testing. Are you working on trying to get these kinds of tests in the hospital setting zest for a lot of people present with in Illinois Trying to figure out what's going on right. So many hospitals have the ability to do. DNA sequencing day are using so using that technology to identify things like cancers or genetic issues with the person themselves so the technology is in the setting. But what's happened is they. They don't have the the software to be able to apply to infection. And that's really where technology from then the DNA sequencing part is high complexity. But something that you know. Hundreds of institutions have the capability of doing what they don't have the ability to do is take the the data from the DNA sequencer and make sense of it so for example when we not take a fecal sample from a patient and run our DNA sequencing that can generate up to a one terabyte the data file that is a very very large data file and its millions upon millions of bits of data. So how do you sort Through all of that information and where our technology comes in is we have developed the software to be able to sort through all of that that information and to be able to get a very sensitive and a very specific answer for all of the things that were in that sample so right right now we are offering a full service because most doctors don't have access to DNA sequencing technology but as as we mature and as the technology makes its way into a more traditional setting. Our software will be what they bring into the hospital settings so they've already got the equipment we will share with them the protocols to run for the specific infection testing and then they will use our software to be able to make these identification in using the equipment that they already have fascinating. So tell us a little bit more about your company in how you started the company. And why are you so passionate about this kind of stuff sore so I have five co-founders roofing two of them were out of the George Washington University one of them out of Boston University and they had come map with this initial software it was called pathos scope and they were getting some really amazing results from summit they went through a program called I corps which is the National Science Foundation Program that tries to help academic doc founders academic inventors take their technologies into the commercial market because the academic world is is a very different world bed clinical a clinical world or a commercial world so they went through this program and I think the the main thing that they realized that they really didn't have the bandwidth or the interest or the skill set to do all the things needed to take this idea into the marketplace and so fortunately I connected with them through Virginia Bio which is a biotechnology industry organization. Virginia and I had finished or I had just sold my first company and was looking for a new opportunity so the stars really aligned. Well I I brought in a lot of complementary expertise to what what my co founders had and so they brought me in the founding. CEO of the company and my job was to help them. Take this this really great idea and to get it into the hands of doctors and patients so that could have a true impact on the world and so that was five years ago and I've since built an amazing mazing team one of my other co founders Dr Chen. He's our chief technology officer he was one of the original recruits to on the business side of of the founders. We've spent the last five years working to refine and add additional capability to the software aware that our founders started and again building this really great team around us with sales people and software engineers. And you you know all the things that we need to to have a nice successful robust company and we've been one patient one doctor here at a time. Educating the world on what we're doing and why it's a value to the world Hudson so what brought brought your interest into this kind of field. What made you so passionate about what you're doing right now is? Is there a story to it or is there something thing that intrigued you throughout your career. That kind of led you to where you are today there is. I was always interested in medicine and and biology. From time. I was a little girl. My grandmother was very sick and she spent a lot of time in your doctor's offices assist hospitals and a lot of memories. Are there with her in these healthcare settings and I remember she would always towel all the doctors and nurses how. I was going to be a doctor when I grew up. And it was very very proud of me and very encouraging of me but what I what what I experienced with her was she suffered with. Chronic pain and the doctors didn't have the right tools to figure out what was driving the pain and so so the diagnosis was. She was a HYPOCHONDRIAC. And for some reason I don't I don't know exactly why I could could see that. She was genuinely pain. She wasn't making it up. She wasn't doing this for attention. She was genuinely in severe pain. They just didn't have the right tools and just watching this as I grew up watching the impact it had on her as a person but also watching the impact it had on her relationship with her family.
"infections" Discussed on Mayo Clinic Talks
"They typically February typically not febrile most infections and most organisms that causes infections are of low virulence and most patients are not Febrile. Actually what are the common bacterial pathogens that you often identify Steph ACC- size is by far the number one and they are divided into two categories collateralized negative such as dermatitis and so forth as well as a staff oreos between staff Sgt Quigley's negative staff and Staph Aureus about fifty to sixty percent of the number of organisms or the percent of organisms other organisms such as gram negative streptococcus Cacak cy Enterococci Anna Robes and so forth are also implicated in in much lesser degree all right. Let's talk about why some patients get infected and others do not. There's a way to stratified the risk of these patients is that correct correct so this is a work that has has been done at our institutions many other institutions what predispose certain patients to develop an infection and we generally divide this into a two three major categories one are factors related to the patient's coma biddies these these are can be related to the immune status of the patient's immune suppression uncontrolled Malignancy Rheumatoid Arthritis Diabetes Mellitus yes and so forth and there are surgical and local one factors that that are at hand these are related to is a revision is to say Komo processes versus a primary processes is a revision surgery are there radiation eluned and the soft tissue issue status and so forth and then there's a third factor which Z. Post operative were pre operative factors related to the one management and he matale genus seating of the wound these are typically due to infections elsewhere such as wound infections or a dental abscess skin infections or factory MIA's see the prosthesis. I have a fair number of patients who have had one owner more joint prostheses and as I going through their medications and antibiotics is listed and ask with that's four and they said my doctor told me to take that if I have have dental work so the big question do patients need prophylactic antibiotics prior to dental work. I wish I have a clear answer to you. I don't think that question has been answered. the there are a number of guidelines that were recently published that in general advise against that practice the data to support the use of the Botox is not there there there's Epi data case control studies large cohort studies that showed that use of antibiotics to prevent infection and the setting of dental procedure is not effective and we do know that use of antibiotics on a larger scale house global health implications in term of see the and to microbial resistance and so forth so the data to support the use of antibiotics is lacking the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgery has a recommendations that have been published published to discourage this practice in general the Ada the American Dental Association also has recommendations to discourage this practice and these were published a little bit later than the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgery Recommendation. We usually tell the patients and the provider to shoot doc it through look the pros and cons in certain high risk patients patients who are much higher risk big prostheses immunosuppression and so fourth prior revisions the first few months after surgery sometimes. We say you know that if you WANNA do that might be okay considering during that we still don't know what the right answer is. Okay Fair enough so let's talk about the treatment of these infections that can get kind of messy surgery again or prolonged antibiotics..
