"Now they're tiny but they're incredibly mighty in their performance now. How does the broccoli in lung health connection play out in the real world because again once you see this similarity in their appearances. Really really crazy and cool. But how does this play out. Will researchers at johns hopkins university found that so far of a plant chemical that is made by broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables helps to restore the immune system pathways within the lungs that clean out the pathogens and reduce the risk of infections research at ucla also noted the potent ability of sulfurophane to reduce inflammation specifically in the lungs another study and this was featured in the journal. Bmc cancer reveal some remarkable benefits in reducing lung cancer risk in smokers and former smokers. The researchers found that the isothiocyanates that are uniquely found in broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables have a cancer modulating effect that defends the lungs against smoking related damage. They noted that the isothiocyanates modulate carcinogen metabolism and facilitate carcinogen detoxification as really really powerful now circling back to the anti inflammatory effects. That brooklyn compounds have on the lungs. I was shocked by how many peer reviewed papers have come out recently analyzing the benefits that these broccoli compounds can have against covid nineteen. I couldn't believe it like who who thinks that. But i love it because this is the world we live in right now yes. There's a lot of nonsense. Yes a lot in. Medicine has been barking up the wrong tree. But there's so many folks now who are aware of the remarkable benefits and compounds that are found in foods that have just amazing benefits in the human body whereas food is largely been brushed off to the side in this in its importance in medicine in negating the fact that our tissues are literally made from food. And we're trying to adjust entreat tissues with these external synthetic treatments right. These newly invented treatments not understanding that our tissues themselves are made from the things that we eat so does food matter. of course it matters now. Many researchers have really put this top of mind looking at things like this because again i was shot. I couldn't believe how many studies we're looking at these broccoli compounds in a relationship with covid nineteen. Check this out. A report published in trends in pharmacological sciences highlighted house a furrow fame upon the defensive pathways used by the lungs and other tissues that combat excessive inflammation triggered by covid nineteen another study published in the world allergy organization journal titled efficacy of broccoli and glucose raffin in in covid nineteen a paper again looking at broccoli and cova nineteen. Who knew who thought of this. So the title of the paper gave was efficacy of broccoli in glucoraphanin in cova nineteen from hypothesis to proof of concept.

"Why wouldn't we try to challenge these viruses right at the point of entry? Dr. Chris Smith is the investment director Mel board with Brandon Capital Partners at a member of the board of Nina Respiratory in Melbourne, Australia. For Chris, Welcome back to the program. Thank you very much, more really, really pleased to be back again. Well, you know, So many of us now have taken covert tests. And if you have, you know the drill, you know, they get out the swabs. They go deep in your nasal passage. They go to the back of your throat. There's a reason for that. Tell us why well covered. 19 is a respiratory virus and most of the infection and where the virus grows and replicate is in your upper respiratory tract in that nasal cavity, which extends from your nose away to the back of your throat. And so the reason they swab there's because that's where the virus is. It's really important to keep that mind because, like so many ventures in the biotech field before Cove, it arrived on the scene in a respiratory was working on a very different approach to fighting the flu. And then along came Cove it. What was Nina trying to do with the flu? And how did it pivot for Cove? It So in a rescue tree is being trying to develop a medicine for people that get flu every year, but where they don't just get over the disease. And you all would have heard you. People getting flu and ending up in hospital. You know, people that are elderly people that for some reason, I don't have an immune system or people with COPD. Things like emphysema and those sorts of things. Which is very common now and foot for regular healthy people flew Can be awful, but usually we itself results. We usually get over it. But for a lot of people, that's not the case and they can end up in intensive care on. In fact, you know, thousands of people are actually dying every year from from flu infections. So in a restaurant tree was looking for a solution to try and prevent people getting viral infections and these viral spiritually infections. That could be so. Bad for these patients, and so the company was established, but it had to tackle the problem in a completely new way. We wanted a medicine that could work on not just influenza virus from this year, but from any year So unlike the vaccine, we didn't want to make it every year. We knew that we had to prevent the infection from really taking hold in the first place and stop it getting down into the lungs, and we're really causes a problem and we knew that it had to work. On people that didn't have a really good immune system anymore. That acquired immune system We're out antibodies come from and the thing that takes time and the thing that vaccines work on Because we know as we get older, and we know is if gotta pour immune system that didn't work so great. So that was that challenge. That was the need that was out there and so interested. True was born from that need and and the solution was to stop trying to make something that targets. The virus itself because they vary so much they change so so fast and it's like trying to hit a moving target. Did. The strategy was to actually target the people and tapping into a primal immune system that's called out in night immune system. We share this with essentially all animals, even very simple animals that, like bacteria have innate immune systems. And try and boost that. As a way off getting people ready and in a position where they can fight the infection before it even comes along on. That's what interests restaurant she was born from. So in a respite tree, their product is called in a 51. And that medicine is designed as a spray something similar to what you buy at the pharmacy. And that spray bottle we envisage you'd give yourself a spray in your nostrils once a week, maybe twice a week. And that would trigger your immune system your night immune system to be ready to fight a viral infection. It's a pre warning system to tell your body to get ready because something may be coming. And the idea there is this that you want to tell the music's from something's coming but not be not be too inflammatory, because obviously that would cause some of the problems that we see with flu in the first place, so getting that balance has been really, really important as well. And has come from the work originally from the University of Melbourne and the Hunter Medical Research Institute in Newcastle, both finish in Australia just to really work on this technology, and it's come from Well, over 10. Years of research. And now five years of interested tree to really home homing on getting that balance, right? Well, you say that it's sending a message to urinate immune system like a little tiny text messages. Look, what do you mean sending a message? Yeah, Exactly. That's a That's a good question. What is the message Look like now, obviously, it's not done by text. Um Your bodies have adapted over thousands of years to recognize pathogens. When you apply the medicine, it thinks that there's an infection coming and and we use that so we use. It's called a patent recognition receptor, and they're on the cells of all on the surface of all of ourselves. On. We're using that as a way of prime ng. So long, kid Coffin. So a long time covert. Yeah, and and and for interested tree, Unlike Um, So much of the rest of the biotechnology community where we had to try and adapt in a respiratory was already developing and medicine for respiratory viral infections. And and so it was a case then of testing to see whether, uh you know 51. Could primary mean system in a way that protected against covert. On that. Is more difficult than it might sound. You know, covert came. We weren't expecting it. Not many people work on Corona viruses on. So For that reason, the world has had an amazing response to generate the vaccines that we've we've made and to try and understand the research. Uh, the first thing you have to do with with any of these developments for human medicines used to test them in animals, and we did that with public Health England in what is regarded as the The one of the gold standard models of risk poetry and fiction, and that is the fare. There are certainly a a species that gets used for respiratory infection research quite a bit on. It's really important that we can show In in those animals that were effective in reducing the amount of virus and so amazingly in in those in the models and performed to be honest, far better than we are our best best expectations. We were able to reduce. The amount off covered 19 virus in those animals by 96% by pre trading without medicines. So what that means is that you know if As a human. What we're hoping is that if if you used the nasal spray if you get exposed to a virus, the virus will be restricted and essentially stopped in its tracks before it gets to take hold. In your nose and the back of your throat, which is where the virus takes Hold in the first place on that's really important because it's when the virus starts in your nose, and we all know that there's this incubation period of 4 to 6 days. With the virus gets into your cells in your nose and your throat. Starts to replicate and then is released and then starts to spread into your lungs and those sorts of things. You need to stop it there, and especially for the vulnerable people, especially for the old people. You trying to try to treat people after the fact that they've already had you already got a large infection, and it's already spread to the lungs and spread to there. Cardiovascular system Today. Blood year is probably going to be too light, and it's not ideal. No one wants to be in intensive care and then get a therapy. You want to stop it before it even starts and And that's the That's the plan for in a 51 to really try and help that That process..

"Soon started holding political rallies. I'm in such great shape President Trump earlier this month, The Trump campaign released this television ad. It features what appears to be a glowing remark from Dr Fauci on President Trump's handling of the Corona virus pandemic. I can't imagine that anybody could be doing more stunning, vouch, he says. His words were taken out of context. But this week, the ad continued to run in key battleground states. I do not. And nor will I ever publicly endorse any political candidate. And here I am. They sticking me right in the middle of a campaign ad, which I thought was outrageous. That was referring to something entirely different. I was referring to the grueling work of the task force that God we would not goingto sells out seven days a week. I don't think we could possibly have done any more than that. Did the steam start to come out of your way did quite frankly, I got really ticked off. Dr Fauci has become the most visible. Doctor in America. Yet, he says his ability to communicate with the public is not always under his control during this pandemic, has the White House been controlling when you can speak with the media? You know, I think you'd have to be honest to say yes. I certainly have not been allowed to go on many, many, many shows that have asked for me one of most trusted voices in America, and yet you're not there. You're not allowed to talk with us. So can you understand the frustration that maybe there's been a restriction on the flow of information on transparency? You know, I think there has been a restriction, John, but it doesn't It isn't consistent. Another point of contention between Dr Fauci and the White House has to do with masks, Dr Fauci said. They didn't waste a minute left in the past are not good. Then he changed his mind he's had missed with Mass at the beginning of the outbreak doctor found she recommended against routinely wearing masks, partly because he was concerned there would be a shortage of surgical masks for health care workers. But a month later found she reversed course after he says it turned out, people without symptoms were a significant source of spread and vast, even home made ones could help stop transmission. So let's see if we could put this to rest once and for all. It became clear that cloth coverings things like this here. And not necessarily a surgical mask or an N 95 cloth coverings work. So now there's no longer a shortage of masks. Number two. Meta analysis Studies show that contrary to what we thought masks really do work in preventing infection, no doubt no doubt. So when you find out you were wrong, you don't double down. Know when you find out you're wrong. It's a manifestation of your honesty to say, Hey, I was wrong. I did subsequent experiments, and now it's this way. The benefit of mass has been supported by evidence that under certain conditions, the virus Khun travel more than the 6 FT suggested by social distancing guidelines as seen in this video. Tiny Aris allies, droplets, Khun float like cigarette smoke across a room. Overtime. Without good ventilation, they can build up and pose a risk of infection. Research shows a mask can reduce that risk. Doctor. Fauci says he's optimistic about the early use of experimental therapies like Rome deserve ear and the monoclonal antibodies given to President Trump. Do you find it at all ironic that the president who has not always consistently followed the advice of public health officials and scientists? Seems to have been made better. My science. Well, I don't think it's ironic. I think it's fortunate that the president of the United States benefited from science. You know, I think deep down he believes in science. If he didn't he would not have entrusted his health. To the very competent physicians at the world to Reed Army Medical Center, But at the same time, he hasn't worn masks considerably. He's pushed back against the U said. See, I think that's less an anti science than it's Maur. A statement. What kind of a statement? You know a statement of strength like with strong We don't need a We don't need a mask. That kind of thing. You know, he sometimes equates wearing a mask with weakness. Does that make sense to you know it doesn't? Of course not. You have a feeling that there is sometimes an all out war against science. Oh, yeah, I mean, Particularly over the last few years is an anti authority feeling in the world and science has an air of authority to it. So people who want to push back on authority tend to as a sidebar. Pushback on science. Tell me about them. How are they? Any good doctor? Fauci is married to Dr Christine Grady, a bioethicist at the National Institutes of Health. We first met her back in 2016 during a rare, relaxed evening of homemade rigatoni with Italian sausage. Salud. She prefers to stay out of the spotlight but agreed to sit down with us. This pandemic has been rough on families all across America. What about yours? Yeah, it's been rough on ours in the In a way that I think is similar to many other families. We haven't been able to see our Children very often. I can't see my mom very often told your mom. She's 96. She got caught and she got really and she's in a assistant living facility. Since until they understandably have very restricted visiting And so all of those kinds of things. There really have been hard for us, just like to have been for many, many families. You get to see a Tony Fauci that the rest of us don't see. What frustrates him. The fact that you know the same message has to be Sort of be reiterated over and over again because either people don't hear it or they don't believe it. Or they don't adoptive. Once an avid runner at 79, Dr Fauci, now power walks Flanked by federal agents. What's that all about that sad, the very fact that a public health message to save lives triggers such venom and animosity to me. That it results in really incredible threats to my life and my safety, But it bothers me less than the hassling of my wife and my Children. They've been threatened. Yeah, I mean, like, give me a break. Have there been death threats against you and your family? All of you. You're not just me, but has many harassment against the rest of the family. As the director of infectious disease Research for the government, Dr Fauci told us not one pathogen he studied from HIV to H one N 12. Ebola has been as puzzling as SARS cov too. The virus that causes covert 19, he says. We need to figure out how common it is for people who have had the virus to be re infected and study the long term effects of the disease. If you talk to a significant number of people, they will tell you that for anywhere from weeks to months and possibly longer, That they have symptoms that a characterized by fatigue and a thing that they referred to as brain fog, which really means the difficulty concentrating the other thing that was seeing that's a bit disturbing.

A. T. word all pieces of legislation our agent originally when they come out of such a bitterly divided Congress going to be a wish list to some extent but we should put this in a bit of context because the first couple of rounds of stimulus really were oh my good lord what are we going to do throw everything at this let's just try to again stop the economy from falling off a cliff but we also don't know how well what we've done already is working and house speaker Nancy Pelosi basically said that this morning on M.

"South Africa UNVEILS FRESH STIMULUS MEASURES TO HELP. Its economy already. Struggling under the weight of recession live from London this is the marketplace morning report from the BBC World Service. I Victoria Craig. Good Morning. The President of Africa's most industrialized nation outlined plan to spend twenty six billion dollars on corona virus. Relief so far South Africa has confirmed thirty four hundred cases of covert nineteen and fifty eight deaths but President. Cyril Ramaphosa warned. The country is still only in the early stages of the virus from Johannesburg the BBC's Maseko reports an amount equal to ten percent of the country's GDP a one quarter of South Africa's 2021 budget will be used in the stimulus package largely to put money in the pockets of the unemployed and underprivileged more than seventeen million South Africans who are already receiving social grants from the government will be given more cash to sustain themselves. This includes pensioners the unemployed and recipients of Child Grens. Small businesses will also benefit from the economic support package but this won't come cheap and is bound to have a ripple effect on state coffers international financial institutions like the IMF the World Bank and the African Development. Bank have been approached for funding the BBC's Maseko in Johannesburg there an announcement of that stimulus package sent. South Africa's currency the rand three tenths of a percent against the US dollar. Meanwhile global stocks are mostly higher today despite ongoing supply glut worries putting fresh pressure on oil prices Brent crude the international benchmark fell to fifteen dollars ninety eight cents this morning the lowest level since nineteen ninety. Nine it's recovered a bit of those losses over the course of the trading session the new June contract for West Texas intermediate crude meanwhile is trading at ten dollars. Ninety eight cents a barrel over the next couple of weeks Georgia South Carolina Tennessee and Ohio intend to loosen their lockdown restrictions. That's death rates in. Those states remained close to the national average but testing rates rank among the lowest in America. That's according to data compiled by Reuters so Khun Germany be a blueprint for how these states can reopen. Germany began mass testing early in the crisis and the world is watching now to see how those efforts are helping. Europe's biggest economy reopen the BBC's Jenny Hill reports a teacher wearing a facemask opens the door to some pupils at a school in Berlin. Just in time to take a socially distanced exam. Germany is cautiously feeling its way back to life in many cities small shops car dealerships. Back in business too at the same time. More testing and focus on contact tracing. Do you contact for forever is contact. Tracing is the most important tool to limit the spread of the pandemic as much as possible every time someone tests positive public. Health officials like milner. Spindler must track down anyone they could have impacted does need. Of course. It's not always possible to find everyone. We depend on the support and to memory of the infected person. They have to work with us. Trying to remember who had contact with off canoe would approve of what the German army has been up till recently helping developers test a phone up which could identify potential chains of infection. But there are concerns about privacy and the technology is considered to be at least a month from being ready. In the meantime Germany's studying its own population. Professor Gerhard Crausser from the Helm Holt Center infection. Research is running at the studies and says existing antibody tests on yet up to scratch because tests. Sometimes we act to antibodies that have resulted from another goal in virus infection. This bilden turned into a positive Zayed. It's not positive respect. Two-week acting to this specific. When you're not there yet fest which put more than a billion euros into local pockets. Germany's economy suffering to gathering still banned pubs and restaurants still closed. The country may have got the outbreak under control. But as it tentatively takes its first few steps out of lockdown scientists and politicians. All watching anxiously. It's all too soon to celebrate Jenny. Hill reporting there this Earth Day. The UN is urging world leaders to put some focus on corona virus rescue efforts on environmentally friendly initiatives a report from International Renewable Energy Agency models. How countries can do this as Michael Maslin? Garb at renew economy explains compared to the levels of economic development. That you might be able to expect under really ambitious clean. Energy scenarios and found that that will ultimately lead to better and stronger economic development in the long term and that that by twenty fifty cumulative economic benefits could title as much as a hundred trillion dollars worldwide and say a renewable energy industry employs many as forty two million people by twenty fifty. Australia's actually well positioned to do this. Why is that yes? So in doing their assessment Irena found the strategy has really good access to Sola. We've got lots of sunlight and lots of spice to collect. Their predictions really showered. That you'd say really dramatic increases in employment. In sectors the growth in renewables employment would more than offset the losses. You might expect industries like the fossil fuel sector. And so how likely is Australia? And perhaps other countries around the world to follow through or take up some of these suggestions. If you'd asked me that question few months ago would have been pretty pessimistic. Strategy doesn't really have a great track record of being really ambitious and embracing clean energy. But I think we're in a very different time and countries and governments are really looking at ways in which they can support economies to find industries. That can really support a recovery. After nineteen countries like no way in Denmark it might really lodge strides towards increasing renewable energy adoption but I think countries can play a different role in an strategy. What we're particularly good is research and development. We've got some of the world leading research in solid technologies here in Australia so that might be the type of role that we play as well. Michael Mashburn garb a journalist at renew economy. Thanks so much for your time in London. I'm Victoria Craig with the marketplace morning report from the BBC World Service..

"London James you'll safely at home they ask you to say social distance polar thing nothing personal rates Germany Ukraine Latin America where where we're going to have updates on the coronavirus crisis next half hour the business presenter Phillip pension will look at the plan to suspend the debt some the world's poorest nations and we'll find out why more and more young people with time on their hands are discovering and warming to classical music the results in Europe with several countries have been relaxing they look down says the rates of infections in places like Spain and Italy begins to show signs of slowing Germany's leader Angela Merkel says in the coming weeks some small shops and schools will be able to re open that Gerald across a is a professor of epidemiology in other words and experts in the distribution of diseases at the Helmholtz centre for infection that infection research and he joins us now good morning Gerald good morning do these measures that go far enough do you think well do you mean the relaxation of the measures go far enough for the measure themselves we have had yeah so we have had of court fights restrictive measures of its respect to limiting mobility admitting a bit ability to work and also contacting other people and those are now being slowly and carefully with axed and looking very carefully how that's effect since the dynamical sample to make and I think how they're lifting the lockdown with small shops and schools re opening what do you make of those two specific parts of society well it's really affecting almost everyone because it it doesn't know it removed his channel locked down and it enables people to to do more for their normal use tool and it also does many more people to actually book which is important for economy but I would also like to focus on another point that has not been communicated so much but it's almost more important in my view and that is that the decision from yesterday from the government is to rigorously strengthened the acceptability of contact tracing in the public health service and and so also springs and increase the protection of the elderly in the in the in situations where they live and that to my mind is maybe even more important in this strategy paper because it may allow it to even be more open because all those general measures right okay you seem to be able to lift lift the lockdown quicker effect in Oregon is that right okay I'm quite interested in the pic small shops to reopen first because I was under the impression that in small enclosed spaces you're more likely to catch coronavirus so this is actually the technical saying that must be imposed to my mind in the current to communication it was mainly focused on square meters offer shop so the larger the shops are more likely to open which to my mind is not the point the point is not the size of the shop tomorrow the point is how many people within one space within one the woman how large is the so it's not tweeting as it right of and whether you sell bicycle all make sense it's sort of and how many customers and and stuff you have in one room and that should be the guiding nine so that's the point where I would feel some improvement could be done by the general directions I think calling is justified yeah a lot of countries have been looking to the way Germany's dealt with the disease specifically the testing you've caught the Jimmy to help as a kind of model of how to deal with the pandemic of if you have you felt that pretty much Germany's got it spot on well the testing another point that in this paper plates or will instead of saying we need to test more and more and more is this yesterday's government decision is explicitly stating that the testing needs to be more focused so to make sure that the white people are tested at the White time instead of just like commending to test more for everyone and that has its reason and this for finds my full support because logistically but also with respect to we Asians and and and other aspects of resources it's just not reasonable to test more and more and more it's more reasonable to make sure that those who need to test we did get it in time S. S. thank you John really appreciate your insight this fascinating John Acosta that professor of epidemiology and experts in the distribution of diseases of the Helmholtz centre for infection research some businesses in here it will hopefully be reacting in the next few weeks but called me around the world continue to struggle of course and that's no different for organizations that operate on the wrong side of the law such as Latin America's drug cartels BBC monitoring Lewis folks I just do in Miami has been looking at how Latin America's criminal gangs have adapted to life under the pandemic the crime cartels are I am definitely active in Latin America in these times of the nineteen but they are facing problems in some ways similar to other larger economic organizations across the world they are facing a double whammy of problems in demand and in supply reports from Mexico for example say that the international supply lines of of drug cartels are being affected because of all these restrictions of course being imposed across international borders and also at the same time a reduction in demand in their main market in the US of course people away from the streets consuming less drugs so what this is resulting in the AM perhaps more complicated economic atmosphere for the drug cartels in March for example a Mexican authorities were reporting more than two thousand five hundred homicides for the months in some people's abducted putting this to mark a again Morrow it conflicts with seeing drug cartels within drug organizations to try to capture a piece of this drinking economic plight of criminal activity so across the region in Mexico and many other parts of Latin America this crime cartels so using a whole style economic environment as many other economic organizations and this is resulting in some parts of Latin America in more violence it's so busy then as you explain pretty difficult for some of these drug cartels for example to keep operating as usual is it also difficult for law enforcement authorities to combat them in this time of the corona virus certainly I mean there have been large in the law enforcement efforts as well against the drug cartels which are still very active in trying to move drugs across for example Colombian authorities have reported that they were involved in operations that led to the C. store of around one hundred and twelve tons of cocaine in the first quarter of two thousand twenty only in the in the first days of April they were reporting seizing a narco submarine just outside the waters of Colombia's Pacific coast this which was one read that's right a very sophisticated vessel capable of operating is semi submerged in in in the waters of the club the Pacific coast and these types of vessels are increasingly being used to to avoid the smuggling controls this is actually the twelfth such vessel seized only in the first quarter of two thousand twenty so although the state criminal organizations are having trouble they are definitely continuing with big efforts to try to to maintain their that they're marketed supplied also another interesting development has been political efforts by drug cartels to go into communities and develop it so to speak capturing the hearts and minds of people to try to gain allies in these local communities which are facing many of them economic ruin because of the call the whole call it nineteen crisis and faced very little prospects of being helped by the state so they're coming in and offering for example is an informal it community aid giving away food giving away even money in some cases there have been several instances attributed to cartels trying to win hearts and minds as part of a political strategy to continue to maintain their very very strong influence in these complicated times of the call the nineteen crimes and the suspect's mating so essentially drug businesses other crime cartels are pretty worried ask many businesses are about their future in these very uncertain economic times but I guess I'm like legitimate businesses that gonna get helpful bailouts from the government so they're going to do their own work yeah even in some locations the state itself has to recognize it has to deal with these drug organizations good to execute its basic task in trying to control the pandemic one of the most notorious cases has been in Brazil where the country's minister of health recognized that the government was having contacts with criminal militia leaders and some of the notorious follows the the shanty towns a Brazilian cities because they recognize that they needed to talk to these people in order to implement the public health initiatives that they hope it will help control the pandemic so even in this extreme cases the government itself recognizing the continued influence the continued power of these of these criminal groups across the continent that's pretty mountings Louisa fido
