Kids Once you take your vaccine, like a dumb person that doesn't know any better. They're going to tell you Sorry. The vaccine isn't as effective as we thought it was going to be.

There is no information that we have that we don't share. With a met with the American public in general, and that is not available to the Biden task force.

"There might be germs lurking there. There's no better my mind. Well you did say the other week that you were growing handlebar moustache so I think on your behalf. I'm GONNA say maybe we should consider the barber and they might be able to do something about that. So the real reason that we're all together isn't just for our imaginary trip to Georgia. It's also because you both have written about two things recently. That come together in interesting ways Dan you've written about Surgeon General Jerome Atoms and how his role in the trump administration has shifted over the past week. And my you've written about the stark racial disparities that we're seeing in the way. The virus pandemic is affecting communities of color particularly black and Latino people and Dan. I want to start with you here because last night. We saw Jerome Adams on the stage for the White House Corona Virus Task Force briefing. This was after he was essentially sidelined earlier. This week. You know not appearing at these briefings. He was also pushed away from some TV appearances lately. What's going on here? Well Jeremy that was the question that I wanted to get to the bottom of two surgeon. General Atoms made more than ten TV appearances the week. Starting Sunday April fifth on shows like Good Morning America. Nbc Today Show Meet the press us us all over the dial. He made just one TV appearance the week. Starting Sunday April twelfth and the pivot point was April tenth press conference at the White House. Where standing on stage with President Trump Tony Voucher and others. The surgeon general spent about five minutes talking about racial disparities but only fifteen seconds or so of what he said ended up getting all the attention and that was when Adams encouraged communities of color not to use alcohol avoid alcohol tobacco and drugs and call your friends and family checking on your mother. She wants to hear from you right now. And then finished it off by appealing to people to do it for their Availa or big Mama. We need to do this if not for yourself. Then for your Availa do it for your granddaddy do it for your big. Mama do it for your pop pop i. I was aware of this only the day following on a Saturday when I was out for a walk and so on twitter. That the Hashtag Uncle Tom was trending. I clicked on it and saw the anger against the surgeon general with progressive accusing him of being a sellout or worse for amplifying messages. That they said were racist stereotypes. I thought his comments reinforced the notion. That personal responsibility is to blame for the racial health disparity rather than systemic racism. The surgeon general. Got a question about this in the moment at the press briefing. He defended himself. He said he wasn't trying to imply. Anything about communities of color. Top scientists Tony foul cheese stepped in to defend him too but for the first week or so. At least the damage was done now. The surgeon general did come back. Make an appearance on the main stage at the White House on Wednesday night so it doesn't appear lasting but it certainly made waves and continues to shape how people think about this administration and the surgeon general and I'm curious about the reaction from the two of you. I recognize that my lens on this might be a little different. I've covered the surgeon general. I've talked him. I've known him for a few years. So Maya as a reporter who has come at this story from a different angle. I'm curious if you saw the surgeon general's remarks and if you thought they were offensive yes it's a it's a really interesting question and I did see the surgeon general's remarks though. Interestingly enough I saw them through the Lens of friends and family who had been watching this and following this very closely who were very Confused and also offended to see A person of color a black man with such a big platform Kind of come out in shame the community. I think that was how people felt was that they were being shamed. White patients and white folks who have been Diagnosed with cove nineteen or who have succumbed to covert nineteen have not received the same directive. And the what I think a lot of people and especially people of Color in the advocacy world. Want people to understand. Is that you know catching the corona virus is not a cultural. There's no cultural correlation to succumbing to this virus. And of course you know living healthy era something that would help everyone In this situation. But it's not fair to put the onus on African American and Latino folks in the country and say look if you're not living correctly if you're not eating healthily if if you're if you abuse drugs and drink you know this is going to put you at At at an unfair it's going to put you at risk you know to potentially succumb to this virus but that's true of anyone who abuses drugs and anyone who who drinks heavily so it's it's really Caused a very interesting debate. August in the circles that that I've run socially and with my family and to see it play out on the national stage Is has also been been something to see. It's striking to me that the criticism against him has honed in so much on what he said in fifteen seconds versus what he said in the whole five minutes. I don't I don't know my if you or your friends. Saw the whole segment. But he did talk about chronic disease and housing and he's an asthma patient. It was more than just the perception that he was hectoring minority communities to change their behavior. But there's some irony in my mind that Adams while an imperfect messenger clearly Someone who's gotten in trouble in a bunch of different ways of the past few months. He's also a person who is rare on that stage for pushing the racial disparity question at all And when he goes missing. That means there's less talk about it. Relig- Will Adams. Was You know one of the few people of Color that you did see on the White House podium? The only African American person up therefore to use Daily White House briefings. And he's largely gone missing and this is well. We've seen the start racial disparity and the pandemic you mentioned and we've talked a lot about how there is a lack of data on this racial disparity and sort of how it can even fuel some of those racial disparities. My I know that you've dug a lot into these numbers. And you know the CDC has come under scrutiny. Recently over this lack of data what do we know at this point about how the corona virus is hitting communities of color and have we seen any change in the releasing of this data from the CDC from the federal government so the calls among doctors legal advocates and community leaders have been for increased racial and ethnic data along the lines of testing? Who's being tested? And who's tested positive or negative. Who's been hospitalized and who has died from? Cova nineteen what we see is very limited response from the states. Where up to about twenty six. Us states that have released any racial or ethnic data related to hospitalizations and deaths. And then on Friday April seventeenth last Friday the CDC released they called preliminary data relating to The race and ethnicity of cases of covert nineteen but at the same time at the as they released it and it was extremely preliminary so preliminary in fact that seventy five percent of those numbers are listed as unknown so while we have a snapshot National Snapshot now of the cases along racial and ethnic lines. It's it's very incomplete. Kristen Clark who has been on the frontlines of these of these calls to release more racial ethnic data through the lawyers committee called the CDC's response woefully anemic And that's what we reported on earlier this week which is the fact that these calls will not stop. Because they're just they're still very incomplete and what we are seeing with this limited snapshot however is still very troubling because African Americans and Latinos are wildly overrepresented in the numbers of those who have been hospitalized or have died from covert nineteen. Well I mean Dan with drum Adams's shifting role in the White House. And the fact that you know as you said he's been someone who has been pushing for more work on these racial disparities and discussing some of it on the White House podium like more. Broadly what do you think? His his shifting role the fact that he was a Go-to guy and then pushed to the sidelines. And then his back up there. What do you think all of this means? I think Adam's shifting rule is representative of two very different things. I the political battles that have shaped this White House the sensitivity to public coverage after I reached out on Monday morning asking about the surgeon general's disappearance from TV. I learned shortly after that he was going back on the air on networks like Telemundo and Sinclair TV syndicates. As they're known so his sidelining even by Monday afternoon appeared to be over. But I think the deeper issue is who in this administration has the ability to speak on racial disparities to move this data forward the surgeon general. His job historically has been to be a spokesperson. That's essentially in his job description. He supposed to be out there explaining public health problems to the American people. The surgeon general does not necessarily fall into the job of someone who's combing through the data having analyst go deep into the weeds the surgeon general and his team can do that. It's the biggest team. But for the most part dat false to other officials in this case the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Cms has done some of the data work in the past in previous outbreaks to produce real time or near real time findings on. Who's being affected the demographic slices around these epidemics? I reported about a week ago. Maybe ten days ago the frustration that cms had not done more and cms administrator Verma when pressed about this at a White House briefing. Did promise that data would becoming. The data is still not here yet and remains a big focus of my reporting when that data will appear what it will show and also. Why is it taking so long? I mean at one of the previous briefings. We saw Dr Anthony. Fauci talking about when he was working on HIV AIDS. And some of you know. I've the greater proportion of my professional career has been defined by HIV AIDS. And if you go back then during that period of time when there was extraordinary stigma particularly against the gay community it came to light how much this was affecting gay community activism. You soften those communities like lead to more light being shed on the problem I see a similarity here because health disparities have always existed for the African American community but here again with the crisis how. It's shining bright. Light on how unacceptable that is I mean my. Do you think with this becoming more of a part of the conversation. The fact that people are talking about these racial disparities when it comes to corona virus. Do you think that that could lead to greater change at the national level when it comes to responses and data in the way we look at public health crises? Well you know the advocates who have been calling for equity in public health along Race ethnicity have been doing so for years now long before the corona virus reached US soil. They've been calling for increased equity in treatment in testing for other viruses and diseases. This is a conversation that's been had for for decades now. So the corona virus has given a new light to a number of these voices who were very ready to talk about these long standing issues but whether or not this gives them any sense of optimism. I don't think we'll see that until we. I get a full picture of who is being tested and treated and being hospitalized. And what's happening when they're actually getting to the hospital because up against this data's the real world stories that we're reading about people of color who have gone to the hospital with symptoms of Cova Nineteen and being told that they have A cold or bronchitis or are being treated only for pneumonia and end up. You know becoming way worse off or even dying and so there's a lot. There are a lot of conversations I think being had around covert nineteen that go far beyond the virus itself. This is a public health issue of course but a health equity issue as well germy. You mentioned Tony Fell. Chee and what he and his colleagues learned about the HIV AIDS outbreak. I am sitting in my house about five feet from a book. Called the band played on. Which is the definitive history of the HIV outbreak and the nineteen eighties and the nineties? Tony vouches a main character in that book and what listeners? Today might not remember. He was heated. He was despised by HIV ACTIVISTS. Who thought that he was holding up work into a cure that that he didn't understand the problems in the field that turned around. He became a champion within years for their cause and and beloved in that community. So when I think about the current fight and the anger against Rome Adams it. It's a reminder that sometimes the anger of the moment turns into the acceptance of of tomorrow and whether it's drome atoms or other officials who can show that they are serving the needs of these populations that can go a long way to changing how those populations think about the government. That's a very good point and I think that you know. Hindsight is twenty twenty and while we were speaking earlier about. Adam's being someone who has has said things that have angered people but the sentiment remains the same. Which is that. It's very clear that people of color are disproportionately affected by this virus. And the reason why is not again. It's not cultural. It's not even biological. It's societal and so I think that when we look back on this moment Jerome Adams may very well be viewed as a key player specifically for communities of Color by advocating for these changes whether their lifestyle changes which you know we can certainly debate and argue about how how to go about asking for those things or just you know figuring out ways to make sure that this message reaches the communities that are being ravaged by the moment that we.

"You Alexandra row house. Because you're with Justice Democrats and you guys have have stayed out of it so far saying that you like both Warren in Sanders. But now you have a peck yes. That's true we are endorsing Bernie Sanders for president of the United States I think that he is the best candidate with the strongest contrast to be able to defeat Donald Trump and is the only one presenting vision of the future with solutions that match the scale scope and urgency of the problems facing and I think the fact that he has stood immense amount of pressure to fall in line to stay quiet to protect status quo and compromise the lives of working people. He has not throughout his entire time in Congress. Since we're really proud To continue on I think the movement that we started off in two thousand sixteen and that he's going to be heading into defeat. Donald Trump regar- you. You had supported Senator Harris. She's now with Biden. Have you made a pick pick interesting? I do believe that commonly harasses. Endorsement is huge and I do support Joe Biden as well. I don't think that's too much of a secret. Shouldn't be in secret anymore. After this morning. I think a lot of people were waiting to see. What Kamala Harris was going to do but her relationship with Elizabeth? Warren is something. That's very well noted. It's something that she was waiting until Warren had dropped hours. I mean not only is Elizabeth Warren one of her colleagues but she went to. She went to talk to Elizabeth Warren when she was running for the United States Senate she worked with Elizabeth Warren when she was Attorney General taking on the banks and just to put this in perspective for the American people this morning black women are the reason that Joe Biden has this huge huge delegate lead and has in was able to win ten fourteen states on Super Tuesday her endorsement help solidify that Jesse Jackson Supporting Bernie Sanders today. No surprise no surprise there and I don't know that that's going to help him. I think the Kamala Harris endorsement probably will help him she may also be looking at a Vice Presidential Law Shush ability to pick his running mate for him but the fact is a Bernie Sanders. I think is looking angrier even than he usually is. He's looking a little bit like a sore loser after Super Tuesday. I don't think it's a good look for him. I don't think it's a good look for anybody and I am going to be watching Michigan very very closely look. I'll just let me let me come to unlikely Defense Bernie Sanders here in that in two thousand sixteen. Let me just tell you? The laundry lists people that supported Donald Trump. Okay there wasn't any right so so endorsement -dorsements right are very nice but in the end of the day they really don't mean a ton what means a ton is. I think the momentum right the winning begets winning in these things as you know so. That is much more important role the momentum that he's on and everybody look who's on binds got the momentum. He was an unlikely win on Super Tuesday. Every every pronounced him dead. The media loves this the narrative that dead now alive. He's Lazarus and so that is much more important than anybody's endorsement here. I think that I think that if if if Senator Sanders had a performance big performances Super Tuesday people would say oh the narrative to narrow differences than I think A. Lotta people are falling into this trap when contracting and what's happening now versus the Republican Party Democrats actually learned a lot from two thousand sixteen so these endorsements mean that the Democratic Party is coalescing. Wait wait you run on run run on his charitable Bama. No no they're coalescing behind once again because what happened was because what happened was Donald Trump was able to thirty percent his way to the primary. That ain't happening in this. I think that in terms of being able to learn our lesson. I think we definitely need to put things into context. Two Thousand Al Gore. Two thousand six John Kerry Sixteen Hillary Clinton the I would argue that. Democratic leaders have not learned their lesson because of the stab their nominating status. You're going with the safe choice. I think Joe Biden Right now represents what a lot of people we in the media see as the safe alternative. I think it's important that right. Now we draw the strongest possible contrast and going into places feels very reminiscent of twenty sixteen. Where there's a lot of people that voted for Obama twice but stayed at home in two thousand sixteen those are young people and I think that Bernie Sanders makes a strong case. I think actually Joe Biden is going to do very well in Michigan. I think there are a lot of working class and union members who are going to vote for Biden man. I think that's it is going to be terrible and stick around. We're going to keep talking about this president trump's comments raising questions about.

"Action. You don't actually know what the magnitude of the virus the although frankly so far it looks relatively contained so that's not true it's not contained. It's not relatively contained. Have you expressed your desire for people on the in the White House to share the facts and be honest? Well this is a novel virus. It's a new situation in the messaging. Quite frankly is hard. But here's what I want the American people to know from a public health point of view and I am a public health expert. A the first thing you want to try to do is contain. The virus in some parts of the country have contained it meaning. They're preventing spread into their communities in the first place. But we don't really know that though right because we're there aren't enough testing kit. So we don't like for instance we know of one case in DC. That doesn't mean there's only one person with it in DC. We just don't know there aren't enough testing kits. Well what we do know. If we had massive numbers of cases we would be seeing more deaths and so we actually feel pretty good that some parts of the country have contained in just like when you look at the flu and when we look at the flu tracker some parts of the country are having much more severe flu. Season's some are having a very mild flu. Season's the same thing for corona virus. You WANNA I try to keep it out of your community. Once you know what's in your community you want to take the steps to prevent spread within the community and to keep those most at risk safe and a very important point here. We now know more about who is at risk average age of death for people from Corona Viruses. Eighty average age of people who need medical attention is age sixty. We want people who are older people who have medical conditions to take steps to protect themselves including avoiding crowded spaces including thinking very carefully about whether or not. Now's the time to get on that cruise ship whether now's the time to take that long haul flight for most people are going to be fine but if you have medical conditions. Oh you're older. Now's the time to to rethink that. Well the three people who might be president in January two thousand twenty one president trump senator sanders and vice president Biden. All of them are in their seventies. All of them. There have had various health questions. Should those three stop traveling? Should they stop holding rallies? Well one of the things we know is that life can't stop and there was a great article in The New York Times earlier today about the social costs. The social impact of draconian measures that have been taken in China. If people are going to go out there we want them to be extra cautious. We want them to wash their hands frequently and I with with the president on Friday and I just said serve. When's the last time you've washed your hands? And he said I wash my hands just a few minutes ago. We WanNa make sure folks are out there who are at risk. They're taking extra precautions but speaking of being at risk and the president he sleeps less than I do and he's healthier than what I am. And so that's the other reason that this messaging is hard because there are seventy year old who run marathons and are healthier than some thirty year. Olds it's really focusing on the CO morbidity on the Medical Problems Heart Disease Lung Disease immuno-compromised folks in addition to that combination of older age. That seems to put people most at risk. I want to listen to something. President Trump said on Friday when he visited the CDC's he was talking about whether or not to bring those infected Americans on a cruise ship off the California coast back into the United States. They would like to have the people come off. I'd rather have the people stay but go with them. I told them to make the final decision. I would rather because I liked the numbers being where they are. I don't need to have the numbers double because of one ship. That was it our fault. I mean. That was a shock in common. I think a lot of health experts were stunned. The is the president's desire to artificially keep the numbers low by keeping Americans who are off the coast out of the United States is that desire impacting health decisions to help save these Americans who have corona virus. Who could possibly have a well. I don't WanNa play politics here but I do want to say. I've been in the situation room every day when the president comes in. He makes it clear that he wants the best advice from his health. Experts as far as the cruise ships are concerned. Our priorities are number. One making sure people who were on those cruise ships and who need medical attention can get it. And we've flown people off the ship we've flown. Cdc teams into the ships to help number two. We want to get people off the ships as quickly and as safely as we can and number three we want to protect our communities. And that's a delicate balance that requires the cooperation of many different partners. Department of Defense Coastguard and others. But again we want to make sure we're taking care of those people on the ship in a way that protects them but also protects communities. I understand you WANNA go to politics but can you assure the American people that decisions are not being made just because the president wants to keep the numbers low as opposed to helping Americans I mean. And that's what he said directly he he doesn't WANNA BRING THEM IN. Because the number will double. That's not a medical decision. That's a public relations decision. Well what I can say to you. It's based on my experience being on the Task Force for about a week and a half and being in that situation room every day that the medical input is taken. Tony Falcon Ambassador Burks Bob Cadillac Myself Ben Carson. You have multiple doctors in the room and our voices are in no way shape or form suppressed. As a matter of fact the vice president usually starts and ends by saying doctors. It is there anything that I need to hear that I'm not hearing. Can you tell us how people have been tested in the United States? The numbers are tough. Because they're changing minute by minute. But here's what people should not rough estimate. Well here's what people should know about the testing. They should know that we have seventy five thousand tests available right now for folks by early next week tomorrow. We should have over two million tests available by the end of the week through partnerships with private industry over four million tests available but the most important number to the American people is one. They want to know if I go in. Can I get a test and the one thing that I've heard I've been to Georgia? I've been the Florida. I'm been the Connecticut in the past. Is that no public health. Doctor who was asked for a test has not been able to get a task so people should talk to their healthcare providers. We we've been telling folks if you and your healthcare provider talk and your healthcare provider. Thinks you need a test. Then you will get a test and we're rapidly ramping up capacity. But you can't give me just a or no you can't give me a even a rough number of how many Americans have been tested you don't know I would refer you to the CDC for that because again. The numbers change so rapidly. I don't want to give you a number. Took it off the website. How many people have been tested? They removed from the website. Well actually I would direct you to the transcript from the conversation that FDA Commissioner Steve Haunt had yesterday where he gave very specific numbers. Important thing for the American people to know again is talk to your healthcare provider if your healthcare provided things you need a task. There's been no indication I've gotten from around the country that folks can't get the FDA commissioner gave a number that was in the five thousands but it was how many tests have been given out how many people have been tested. We're still waiting for a number on that. Millions more with the capability to be tested by the end of this week. Millions more but the capability ended this week. All right doctor. Thank you so much appreciate your time today. Thank you facts over. Fear J. I agree I agree. He's gone from underdog front runner and just.

Thanks so much for joining us. Six weeks into the crisis. A first responder tells me that he sees this with a workers at one of the main. Clusters understaffed undertrained undersupplied.

And in most cases eighty percent plus it causes a mild disease and One of the things. We're focused on helping people know who's at risk and what they can do to protect themselves. Now you mentioned that care facility the vice president and a team of folks including Dr Redfield were out there just a few days ago. It's important for the American people to know that this response and in all states is led by the state's with consultation from federal partners and we are constantly in touch with them making sure they're getting what they need.

Vermont the virus spreading absolutely. And we've been saying this all along. Initially we had a posture of containment. So that we could give people time to prepare for where we are right now. Now we're shifting into a mitigation phase which means that we're helping communities understand you're going to see more cases unfortunately you're going to see more deaths but that doesn't mean that we should panic. It means that we should take the things that we know work for individuals to protect themselves. And make sure everyone is doing those things like washing your hands frequently like covering your cough like staying home if you're sick and not being around people who are sick but it also means communities need to be thinking about things like should. We be canceling large gatherings. What are telework policies? Should we be closing schools? And that's GONNA be different in Seattle than what it's going to be in Jackson Mississippi but communities need to have that conversation and prepare for more cases so that we can prevent more deaths. I agree that there shouldn't be panic but I also think there has been confusing information coming from not from you but from other people in power. Take a listen To to top White House officials in the last few days saying that the virus has been contained when it has not been contained. This is being contained because the president took action. You don't actually know what the magnitude of the virus the although frankly so far it looks relatively contained.

"So one of my questions coming out of the conversation with the surgeon general was how big a deal is this really what doesn't advisory on e cigarettes mean for public health to understand grab my colleagues or overall who's tracked this clues as anybody. She covers e cigarettes for black. I'm joined now by my friend and colleague, how're you? Sarah. Great. How are you? I'm good. I'm good at this point. You just like our listeners have heard the interview with through general Adams was there anything that jumped out to you? How big a deal is it that the surgeon general is weighing in on the cigarettes. Well, for the general at significant because it's the fourth time in thirteen years that he has issued an advisory others on alcohol use and pregnancy and radon this is pretty significant for his role in the grand scheme of e cigarettes would not this highest some of the other moves that have been made. Because of course, the FDA actually put out an action plan last month that had real steps in to hopefully in their view. Limit teen use these generals advisories more about having conversations and an awareness campaign right in an FDA action plan and actual FDA crackdown is more than whatever. This regina. General's going to be saying in his bully pulpit role. Right. And I mean that bully pulpit role is significant especially because the industry is already feeling a lot of pressure. But the FDA has the power to really further regulate them. So they're keeping their eye on that agency right now, this is more about the types of conversations that parents and kids and teachers should be having rather than how the vapor industry needs to be regulating itself. So the advisory is truly that it's vice it is not requiring that teachers doctors do something different. No, it's not requiring. But I mean, even if if we're going to get technical the FDA isn't necessarily requiring that vapor companies pull their products, but it's in everybody's best interest to do. So it's trying to move where we are. One thing that came up in the conversation with Dr Adams is the Trump administration where comes down on healthcare issues. We're coming off a very controversial weekend in healthcare. The judge who struck down the Affordable Care Act with the Trump administration. Not doing a lot to defend the ACA in front of that court on something like e cigarettes. This is something that at least for my perspective. There have been more Democrats more health advocates behind is that right, Sara is this something where there might be bipartisan consensus definitely there is especially among Democrats, and it puts them in the funny position of backing, of course, a Trump administration official, but I don't even think they necessarily mind that Gottlieb has done a lot on this that they support. There are a few Republicans that are wary of this. And from the people I've talked to again in the east invader industry. They don't exactly wanna come out and say, they they don't want the FDA to be aggressive on e cigarettes because it's obviously a teen issue. They don't want to be. Framed like, they're don't have concern for that. But the the Republicans that have shown wariness about tobacco regulation are the ones that you would look to say they also kind of sounding the alarm wondering if the FDA's taking step too far missiles bigger proxy battle over tobacco. Right. And it wasn't helped by the fact that Gottlieb last month when he released the plan lumped it together with regulations on traditional cigarettes and cigars. So you are the reporter for politico tracking e cigarettes tracking smoking trends. More broadly. Is there anything else that you are looking at no any other shoe to drop from the federal government? Definitely they've put out advanced notices of proposed rules on flavored cigars and menthol and mint cigarettes, and that relates to ISA Gretz in that the FDA sees it as the first step. They have to take before they take more steps on regulating flavors in each..

"Find yourself watching fictional depictions of of medicine and just scrutinizing everything. Or if you allow yourself to enjoy it, you know, I literally can't watch any of those shows because I'm an anesthesiologist in one of the places where they most frequently get it horribly wrong. If in the operating room setting they've got someone there with a with a breathing tube half hanging out the wrong way. And and and the pa- patients eyes are wide open there in the operating room without mask on. And it's just so far away from reality that I can't enjoy it. I probably shouldn't endorse any particular shows. But the the one TV show that I actually watch the Simpsons I tape it and watch it when I'm running on the treadmill, even though I want I want folks to know that I do not. Endorse Dr Nick or any of his actions. But I do enjoy about Dr Hoover, Dr Hibbert, the family, doc. Yeah. Well, well, you know, I'll be honest, very jolly very jolly. And it was nice to see a person of color portrayed as a doctor on a on a TV show. So I I'd say a doctor Hibbert fan secretary as our was asked about his TV shows last week. And he joked that once he revealed them people would be buying at trying to win over his favor. I I look forward to the drug ads that are going to start appearing on on Simpson's TV show last question when I interviewed her predecessor actually sitting in this office. I asked him again nations top Dr DD have any health vices and for him. It was desert. He loved desert are there any health vices that you would like to cop to that is a great question. My mother is from southern Maryland and people debate about seven Maryland. But the Mason Dixon line runs through it. And and I consider that. The south and oh my gosh. She makes them side dishes. That are just amazing. My mother can take a vegetable and turn it into the most unhealthy thing you will ever consume in your life, her sweet potato threw flay. If I if out of this world, her her, spinach, she can take spinach and turn it into cream spinach that you wouldn't even recognize, but it is just so delicious. And so I'd say my biggest health vice is my mother's cooking. Well, we will aim to see what what comes of you and twenty nine thousand nine hope you'll come back, and we'll have a longer conversations in. Thank you so much. I appreciate the opportunity to to talk about some of America's health problems. You know, it it's tough. If these if these were easy things to talk about with eighty solutions. We'd have it solved. But my motto was better health through better partnerships, and the more that we can bring different folks to the table the more that we can bring folks across the aisle, the the more that we can really put our own beliefs or bias. To the side, not our beliefs, but our bias is to the side and just talk through some of these things and I've seen this play out across the country. And then the healthy our society becomes in the more prosperous, it becomes so. Thank you. We'll leave it there Dr Adams. Thank you for joining politico pulse. Check..

"In your community and the predictors of both negative and positive health in those communities, and I think it dovetails perfectly with our opioid work because folks are acutely attuned to how the opioid epidemic have. Impacted their community and their ability to be prosperous. So when you talk about that community health initiative, and you and I have had a conversation about this before what does that practically mean does that mean you will be out there? Speaking on this issue will there will be money flowing into new programs that are targeted on community health. That's a great question and j- just last week. I with at the Federal Reserve Bank and Atlanta partnership between the office of the third general and the Federal Reserve unheard of before. But they're feeing this to they're seeing that that America's poor health is literally threat to our future, prosperity and our ability to continue to grow. So it's really looking at evidence based practices such as the spark initiative in San Francisco such as purpose built communities such balloons, and I'm just shooting out of either for folks, they can go to YouTube or online and look up all of these initiatives. But their example, the zone is like with Dan Buckner. Yes. With the local communities that have longer life spans and healthy outcomes and trying to. Figure out the secrets of those communities and export them around the country. Exactly a-, and they're all great examples of public and public private partnerships where folks have invested in building healthy communities, but seeing returns, not just in health metrics, but again in economic metrics in community growth and happiness for for individuals the blue zones, I remember that because I was in this tiny town in Minnesota Alber Li yes that had a blue zone sign up, and I was running around the lake, you know, whatever December forty degree weather and thinking God, this if this is the secret to being healthy, I guess like you're running in the cold. I know you. I'm proud of you, Dan. I'm proud of you to to hear about that. And getting on the cold weather and getting it in. That's the best thing. A doctor said to me in a long time. I'm usually pretty frustrated with my lifestyles, a political reporter. But I will take that at that the surgeon general just endorsed me running in the cold, Minnesota is there is there something doctor that you've seen elsewhere in another country and different health system that you. Wish we could take and implement here. Well, again, going back to our our whole community, health and economic prosperity or chap initiative. We know that the US spins more on healthcare than any other country by far, but we don't achieve the same outcomes as compared with countries do, but when you actually include all the things that we know account for health in that equation. We know that other countries spend similar amounts, but they're investing in preventative measures. They're investing in complete streets. They're investing in transportation. They're investing in food security. We know that only twenty percent max, some people say littlest ten percent of health if actually health care, but we focus ninety nine percent of our attention and our funding on ten to twenty percent of the problem..

"They're verb juuling. And and again, it's important that we recognize things for what they are. But but they deliver nicotine. In a way that is both more appealing to young people and less irritating. They use nicotine salt form of of of nicotine that if less harmful so you can deliver more nicotine per hit. And that is what makes products unique and different from many of the older products. And what makes them particularly dangerous in terms of creating dependency and individuals usually than public health. We're late to the game. And when you look at the epidemic rive and you use among youth where we're late again. But we're trying to intervene before it's too late. We want to catch this thing and hopefully stop the increase in rive, and hopefully turn it around. So that we don't have a new generation of young people addicted to nicotine, it's interesting you say that the idea that we're trying to be proactive as a federal government in intervening before there is a wave of adult smokers because of the jewel devices. We don't know. How many kids have died from juuling? We there may be no kids who've died from juuling what we certainly know that poisonings have gone up the poison control center. Say that one of the number one reasons they're getting calls now if because kids are being exposed to high levels of nicotine through these products, and again, I'm not saying that Joel is causing an epidemic of death. You're right. We don't know what we what we don't know at this point. But we do know for certain that for young people learning attention memory and predisposition for future addiction all cannot can can happen when young people use these products. We know they can be exposed to other dangerous substances including marijuana. And we know that what the ethnic rive in a harmful substance exposure that it's appropriate for us to act shifting gears somewhat. We have this major cross governmental response on veep. Ing. He just mentioned there things that we don't know. There's something we do know which is. That there are tens of thousands of people every year who die because of gun violence. This is something you actually tweet it, or at least it was manning or Twitter account tweeted me recently, a link to the data do find it harder to move to issue statements on something like gun violence, given the politics around that issue. Well, here's an interesting thing about gun violence, and I've been all over the country. We know that in many communities across America, the availability of guns, if a constant threat drove through downtown Baltimore Jeff last week into a young person walking through downtown Baltimore who may not have a father or a mother who scared to walk to the playground or to the to the grocery store because they're scared of getting shot. The availability of guns is certainly certainly a threat to their physical and their mental health. We also know that when you go to to Arkansas or Alabama where I've been and you ask folks about guns..

"Percent of high-schoolers are using these devices five percent of middle schoolers and I have two young kids myself and middle school five percent of middle. Schoolers are using these e figure it devices a higher percentage of middle schoolers are using them than adults. They're truly of an epidemic. Here youth are being exposed to nicotine, which is uniquely uniquely harmful to the developing brain. And that's something that that most folks don't realize either that nicotine is uniquely harmful to the developing brain, it can affect learning attention, memory and. It can prime the brain for addiction to other substances and just underline the point the target audience of adult smokers. Switching over is now where the inroads are being made at the same level as among teens as among kids. The vaping industry has proposed putting the onus of responsibility on kids on parents on other sort of like the same way that the alcohol industry has shifted responsibility. There does that make sense to you Dr. Well, what makes sense to me is what makes sense for any public health intervention? If got to be an all hands on deck approach. So Dr Gottlieb at FDA working on the regulatory side at the CDC. Our partners are doing surveillance work at NIH, and neither folks are pushing for more research and the office for the third in general. We're pushing the ravens wariness, but we can't do it alone. We know that at the state and local level. They have more control over retailing. I have more control over clean air policies. And it's important that folks know that the figure it devices are not included universally in cleaner policies that are. Past and yes, obviously. And of course, we wanna make sure parents teachers, Dr such pediatricians are aware of the epidemic. Rive are aware that nicotine if dangerous are aware that a large proportion of young people have actually been exposed to marijuana through these devices in that they have a role to play in addition to the state and the federal response you mentioned your kids in middle school who are certainly aware of vaping and the prevalence in their age bracket. Have you ever seen a jewel? Brought to your house your kids don't jewel, I'm guessing my kids don't Joel I'm knocking on wood here. My I'm fairly certain my kids don't you'll. But yes, actually, my my middle. Schooler wrote have bike to his elementary school Jeff last year and brought home a jewel pod. And dad, what is this? It was it within the in the playground at his school. My nine nine year old actually knows what. Juuling is kids are being exposed to these products through their their games that they play through YouTube and at school where in many cases, the bathroom is now referred to the juuling room. I bought one of those devices from seven eleven and I was struck by just how cool it looks. It does look like a very flashy flash drive for lack of repeating repeating the words there has been a push FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb is talked about this raising the age of juuling to twenty one is that something you would support tobacco Twenty-one if an evidence based policy that many folks have supported across the country. Again, we know that nicotine can affect the developing brain in the brain continues to develop all the way through age twenty five. So I think it's appropriate that we explore the the feasability of tobacco Twenty-one policy the cross the country, and that we include all nicotine containing products in those tobacco Twenty-one laws when we're having that discussion, I wanna go back to your advisory here. The surgeon. General you're the most important doctor in the country, or at least you have the biggest bully pulpit. You can focus on lots of different issues. You've picked this one in your advisory, which is the third advisory that thirteen years. Yes. So this is rare third and thirteen years, you talk about the possible health risks of e cigarettes around air assaults and nicotine, you mentioned the nicotine risk of addiction. What what else do we need to know from health standpoint about e cigarettes? What are the risks? They UC. Well, again, these new products that are out there such as Joel which is seventy five percent of the e figure it sold at retail. And I say that specifically because I'm not picking on jewel. But the fact if they are seventy five percent of the cigarettes matter fold, they've become a synonym, it's like Kleenex tissue. Exactly, exactly..

"You would like to hear from next we're kicking around and near the end of the year that would be a book club for pulse. Check listeners. And with that. Here's my conversation with surgeon general Jerome atoms. Surgeon general Durham Adams, welcome to politico. Pulse. Check great to be here. Thank you so much, Dan, you are issuing a surgeon general's advisory on e cigarettes, and meanwhile, the NIH just released survey data of their own that teen reports of vaping have essentially doubled in a year. And meanwhile, over at FDA Commissioner, Scott Gottlieb is cracking down on vaping to is this something that all of you came to individually or Trump administration push on vaping while we're recognizing this of an epidemic. We saw from the data that came out today that for the first time in over forty years we've seen doubling in youth youth of substance at a time when tobacco youth is stable at a time when alcohol Yousef stable and at a time when opioid misuse if actually going down we've seen a doubling of youth youth of of these e figure it devices a seventy eight percent. Crease and young people using these devices, according to the November released in Y T S data and now we're up over twenty percent exactly kids who have reported vaping. And let me put that into perspective for you. I don't want anyone to think that I'm against the harm reduction potential of these devices for adults, but three percent of adults are using these devices. Twenty.
