A highlight from Frank Turek (Encore)
"Folks, welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show, sponsored by Legacy Precious Metals. There's never been a better time to invest in precious metals. Visit legacypminvestments .com. That's legacypminvestments .com. Welcome to The Eric Metaxas Show. Would you consider yourself smart, insightful, precocious, astute, clever, wise beyond your years, and good at checking a thesaurus for synonyms? Well, then you've come to the right place. Here now is the handsome, attractive, striking, gorgeous, and quite frankly, breathtaking, Eric Metaxas! Hey there folks, welcome to the show. I am excited because I have a friend on today who is a Christian apologist. Have you heard that term? An apologist? No, no, no, he's not apologizing. As a Greek, I know the word apology, the original meaning is apologia, of words, of understanding. So to be an apologist is to make a defense, like a lawyer would, for the faith. And Frank Turek is the author of many, many books. He's the president of CrossExamined. You can go to crossexamined .org. And Dr. Frank Turek has a new book out. Excited to have him to discuss the new book. It's called Correct, Not Politically Correct About Same -Sex Marriage and Transgenderism. Dr. Frank Turek, welcome to the program. The great Eric Metaxas. How are you my friend? Unbelievable that you have a stadium -sized crowd in your little office there. That's very impressive. Thank you. I got to tell you seriously, we're friends and I just enjoy whenever I get to bump into you and talk to you. But you are really prolific. You keep coming out with these extraordinary books. And the new one, unfortunately, is very important about same -sex marriage and transgenderism. So as believers, those of us who say, I'm a Christian, how do I understand this? You have written a book to help with that. Because unfortunately, you know that there seems to be some confusion about how we're supposed to deal with this. So what is the principal thesis of the book before we get into the details? Well actually, this goes all the way back to 2008, Eric, when I saw that same -sex marriage was being more and more accepted. And a lot of people didn't know why they shouldn't accept same -sex marriage. And so I wrote the first edition of this book back in 2008. And it's not a book filled with Bible verses. This is the natural law medical case against same -sex marriage and now transgenderism. Because as you know, that has come out even more in recent years. And so the third edition of this book just was released about a month ago. And it's got a brand new section on this transgender issue. Because as you've spoken about, Eric, when you're talking about Letter to the American Church, is that pastors don't even seem to want to touch this issue. And if pastors aren't going to touch this issue, who is? Well, ironically, Eric, there have been atheists that are talking more about this issue. People like Bill Maher, people like Richard Dawkins, people like Douglas Murray, are who actually not Christians, but they're saying there's a big problem here. And we need to speak out against it. And it's really a stain on the American Church that the Church hasn't spoken out about it, Eric. So anyway, this book, Correct, Not Politically Correct, is the third edition. And it's not quoting Bible verses. It's there to show you from a natural law medical perspective why both same -sex marriage and transgenderism are not good for individuals or societies. It's so interesting to me what you just mentioned, how we have non -believers, people who are not Christians, who seem to see clearly the problems with transgenderism and are talking about that. And of course, most extraordinarily, you have gay, people who identify as gay, who are conservative, speaking out against the transgender madness. So they don't identify as Christians. They identify as gays. But they say, wait a minute, we were not advocating for this. This is lunacy. I was literally with Douglas Murray last night at a dinner here in New York City. I was with Brandon Strzok here in New York recently. Both of them identify as gay. Both of them are conservatives. And both of them are totally outspoken about the transgender lunacy. So obviously, we disagree on some pretty basic stuff. But on this, many people who are not Christians see the madness, are speaking out about it. And as you just said, many in the church are silent. And this is the scandal. And that's why I wrote my book, Letter to the American Church. But I don't go deep into this issue. You, my friend, Mr. Apologist, Dr. Frank Turek, you get into this. So I do want to get into it with you from a biblical perspective. And I want to be clear, too, when you say natural law perspective, ladies and gentlemen, that's a biblical perspective. We're just not talking about quoting scripture verses. We're talking about logically talking from a biblical viewpoint. But how are we supposed to approach this? Well, first of all, let's talk about whether or not love requires approval. I always ask parents, because our culture somehow thinks, Eric, that love requires approval, that if you want to love me, you have to approve of what I do. And I always ask parents, if you approve of everything your kid wants to do when he or she is 13, are you a loving parent? Of course not. You need to stand in the way of evil to love people. And we, even in the church, have bought into the lie that to love people, we have to approve of what they do. No, we don't approve of what they do if we love them, if they're doing evil. This is why Paul says, by the way, in the passage, Eric, that everybody reads at their wedding, but nobody obeys, that love always protects, that love does not rejoice in wrongdoing, love rejoices in the truth, that love always perseveres. How do you protect people when other people want to do evil, or when they themselves want to do evil? You call them out on it. And that, of course, is what I'm trying to do in Correct Not Politically Correct. That's what you're trying to do in Letter to the American Church. We're trying to tell people that if you love people, you will speak out against this evil. In fact, Jesus himself said it would be better to have a millstone hung around your neck than to lead one of these little ones astray. And, Eric, that's what we're doing. That's what I document in Correct Not Politically Correct. We are actually trying to transition minors. We're mutilating their genitals. We are giving them puberty blockers and cross -sex hormones that are making them old men and old ladies way before their time, sterilizing them, and we're calling this love? This is not love. This is evil, and we need to stand against it. And if Douglas Murray can stand against it, if Richard Dawkins can stand against it, if my friend Dave Rubin, I just did a show with him down in Miami just a couple of weeks ago, you know, he identifies as gay too, if he can stand against it, where are the pastors? Where are the Christians? Where are the common sense people, Eric? What are we doing? We're allowing this on our watch, and we're silent. We can't be silent anymore. Well, I, you know, in my book, Letter to the American Church, I'm trying to reach those pastors and Christians who are kind of on the fence, who are confused, who don't know what to do, so they're being quiet. And it's why I love you, because you help us understand why we need to speak out. I mean, I talk about it a little bit, but you go into depth to explain the biblical worldview, God's idea of sexuality, transgenderism. Now, what's interesting to me, Frank, is, of course, Scripture isn't silent on transgenderism, right? I mean, right in the beginning of Genesis, we are created in God's image male and female. Very, very clear, there are only two genders. So when somebody puts out this idea, which they came up with 10 minutes ago, oh, yeah, there are all these many, many genders, you want to say, where did you get that from? Everyone, you don't need to be a Christian to know that's preposterous. You don't need to know that, you don't need to be a Christian to know that a rooster cannot lay an egg. Everybody from the beginning of time has understood that there are two genders, so that's number one. But number two, you know the passage where Paul talks about who will inherit the kingdom of God. And the Scripture, you know, when you look at the Greek, you get different translations. It says homosexual, sodomite, sometimes it says effeminate, whatever. What it's referring to there in that first word has to do with those men who blur the line, who feminize themselves. And it makes it very clear that that is wrong. And so it's interesting, the Scripture is not silent on these things. There's plenty in Scripture about this, whether you're looking at the Old Testament or the New Testament. So that's why it's all the more shocking in a sense that Christian pastors and leaders have been silent on this. I understand why, but folks, that needs to change. When we come back, we're going to get into the details. Frank Turek is my guest. The book is titled Correct, Not Politically Correct. We'll be right back. Tell me why Relief Factor is so successful at lowering or eliminating pain. I'm often asked that question just the other night I was asked that question. Well, the owners of Relief Factor tell me they believe our bodies were designed to heal. That's right. Designed to heal. And I agree with them. And the doctors who formulated Relief Factor for them selected the four best ingredients. Yes, 100 percent drug free ingredients in each one of them helps your body deal with inflammation. Each of the four ingredients deals with inflammation from a different metabolic pathway. That's the point. So approaching from four different angles may be why so many people find such wonderful relief. If you've got back pain, shoulder, neck, hip, knee or foot pain from exercise or just getting older, you should order the three week quick start discounted to only $19 .95 to see if it'll work for you. It has worked for about 70 percent of the half a million people who've tried it and have ordered more on one of them. Go to relieffactor .com or call 800 for relief to find out about this offer.

You can find him at crossexamined .org. He is on 180 radio stations per week. The show podcast is called I Don't Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist. So, Frank, let's keep talking about this. How do we know there are only two genders? How do you know? How do I know? How do we know this? Let's just leave the Bible out of it for just a minute. Let's just look at the natural design of the body. The natural design of the body proves there are only two genders, Eric. Because, look, if you're a human being, and this is true in all mammals, you can only produce either a sperm or an egg. There's no third category. And anybody that can't produce a sperm or an egg, that's an incapacity. That's not a third capacity. So we know by the design of the body that there's only two genders. Secondly, transgender advocates, and this is all in the book, correct? Not politically correct. Transgender advocates, on one hand, deny there are only two genders. They say everything is fluid. But on the other hand, they unwittingly have to presuppose two genders. Why? Because if I'm a man and I think I'm a woman, I have to have some idea what a man is and some idea what a woman is to know that I have this psychological mismatch between my psychology and my biology. And secondly, if I'm going to try and make the so -called transition, which is impossible, and we'll get into it by the way, but if I'm going to try and do that, if I'm going to try and become a woman, I have to have some idea of what a man is and some idea of what a woman is to try and make the so -called transition. If there were no fixed genders, Eric, there would be no way I would know I had gender dysphoria, and there would be no way I could try and make the so -called transition. So it presupposes it, on one hand, while denying there are fixed genders on the other. Can I tell you how I know there are only two genders? Here's how I know. Amazon was selling a shirt that said, like, these are the 20 different categories of gender, and it was on the front of the t -shirt. And the shirt came in sizes for men and for women only. That, to me, is hilarious. When it says male, female, like you want to buy a shirt, like you got to click on male or female. At some point, this becomes funny, because we all understand this is troubled people. These are people that are deeply, deeply troubled. I can't begin to imagine what it would be like to be so confused or so angry or so whatever. So we do have to have compassion, and I think that's where the silence comes from on the part of many Christian leaders. They think that to say nothing is to be compassionate, and in some cases that's true. In some cases, there's a time to speak and a time to be quiet, but we have a responsibility to disciple our flocks. We have a responsibility to our own children to tell them the truth about these kinds of things. And, you know, the famous statement, silence in the face of evil is itself evil. When you're quiet, it can often mean consent. It means, I'm not saying anything, which means I'm going along with this. I just don't want to, I'm just not going to say so, but you get the message, because I'm saying nothing. Well, Eric, let's draw a parallel between gender dysphoria and, say, anorexia, which is what Dr. Paul McHugh at John Hopkins University, a psychiatrist, draws. He that says if someone is anorexic, but they think that they are overweight, you would not help them by saying, you know, honey, I'm going to get you some liposuction. You're right. You know, you are really overweight. No, you would say, honey, your mind is playing tricks on you. You're suffering from a mental delusion. Let me get you some psychiatry. Let me get you some cognitive therapy. Let me get you some counseling. Let me help you fix your mind, because you can change your mind. You can't change your biology, by the way. You can change your mind. Also, Eric, if your daughter came to you and said she was a mermaid, would you take her off the coast and drop her in the ocean? No, of course you would say... If I loved her, of course I would. Whatever you want to be, honey, whoever you are today, you want to be a kite? That's right. Follow your heart. No, I tell you, Frank, again, this is the logic of it. If somebody says to you, I'm Napoleon Bonaparte, I'm Julius Caesar, I'm Winston Churchill, how do you respond to that? Well, you might just nod politely because you realize, wow, this person is deeply messed up. But imagine affirming them in that lie. I have to say that, you know, if there's a way to help them see the truth, you would do it. Now, some people are beyond that. There's some people you can't do anything. But what is amongst ourselves, we wouldn't start calling that person Jesus of Nazareth because he just said, I'm Jesus. We, you and I, would say, you know, that guy there thinks he's Jesus of Nazareth. We obviously know that he's not. He's so messed up. I don't know how we can get to him. Maybe we can't. But let's not pretend amongst ourselves. Let's not tell everybody, call him Jesus because that's the loving thing to do. You would never do that. No, and the well -meaning people who try and say, well, we need to accommodate these people. We have to use their pronouns. You have to have your own pronouns and all this. If you think about that, if someone is suffering from a delusion, you don't help them by trying to keep them in the delusion. If deaf people were to come to you and say, Eric, you know, I can't hear and I'm upset every time you listen to music, stop listening to music, stop speaking. You must use sign language. You would go, OK, I'm going to do everything I can to accommodate you because you have a defect that you can't get over. But I'm not going to change my life completely. So you're not offended because I listen to music or I or I speak. And yet that's what seems to be happening with the entire trans movement. They want to pull the entire world into the delusion in order to make some people who really need mental health care feel better when the best way to help them feel better is to get them mental health care, not to affirm them in that particular delusion. And by the way, the data show, which is what we cover and correct, not politically correct, Eric, that nearly all of the people, not maybe not all, but most of the people that suffer from so -called gender dysphoria have some kind of traumatic childhood event that has triggered them into this. Now, say that again, because I have not really heard that. I was wondering about this. Yes. You're a data guy. I'm not really. So talk about that. And again, this is in the book. Correct. Not politically correct. Talk about that. Yeah. Walt Iyer, who for eight years tried as try to live as a woman, but then became a Christian and then started the Web site and ministry called Sex Change Regret, Sex Change Regret Dotcom. And he has counseled thousands, according to him, thousands of people. And in his research, he says there's nearly always an event. There's always some sort of traumatic event that causes the person to think I'm in the wrong body. And for example, the people that truly have gender dysphoria, not the social contagion that's spreading on the Internet right now that, you know, a lot of young girls are just there. It's the hip thing to do it. They don't really have gender dysphoria, but they're trying to get approval of the crowd and they're trying to stick it to their parents sometimes when they do this. But the people that truly have gender dysphoria say, Eric, that they had an event. In fact, Walt Iyer puts it this way. Sometimes when a man thinks he's a woman, he has been sexually abused and he wants to get rid of the genitalia that was abused. So you can understand the psychology behind it. They want to rid themselves of the organ that was abused in that event. Okay, folks, we got to be clear. We're talking about evil. Evil, when someone is sexually abused as a child, there's almost nothing that you can think of that's more evil than that. It is pronounced evil. It's not just wrong. It's pronounced evil. And when you quoted Jesus earlier, you know, better that we would find the largest millstone and have it hung around his neck and he be cast into the sea than that he should lead one of these little ones to go straight. We're talking about some very, very dark stuff. And we have to have compassion to understand if someone has been through that, it is hard for us to imagine how that would mess you up, how your brain, your psyche would try to accommodate that trauma. And as you're saying, as this guy says, who you can find at sexchangeregret .com, sexchangeregret .com, he is saying that is often the case, that someone has had a profound trauma. So first, we want to weep for these people. We want to weep what they have been through, but we don't want to affirm them in the way they're dealing with this any more than you deferment. Somebody who's like, you know, who's on heroin because of some stuff that happened to him, you know, in Vietnam or during his childhood. And you wouldn't want to say, like, hey, if heroin is your way to deal with this, good for you. I'm all in. Let me buy you, you know, some horse. No, you would you would try to actually help him, like really help him. And, you know, Eric, you can change your mind. You can't change your biology. Look, if I'm a man and I think I'm a woman, why not think that instead of my body being wrong, that I'm actually, instead of saying I'm a woman trapped in a man's body, why shouldn't I say that I'm a man enveloping a woman's mind? Then if I can just change my mind and fix the problem, I can't change my biology. I can't change all hundred trillion of my cells. I can't change my DNA, but I can change my mind. And every single one of ourselves, folks, can tell any doctor whether you're a man or a woman. This is not like an up in the air thing. We'll be right back talking to Frank Turek, T -U -R -E -K. Frank Turek, the book, correct, not politically correct.
Fresh update on "john hopkins" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Joining us now is Dr. Eric Nipudi, who is here. He is the first person ever to be charged with 10 counts in federal court for allegedly violating the COVID Consumer Protection Act. His violation was promoting vitamin D and zinc when people needed it most. Doctor, thank you for joining us. Tell us your story. Well, Charlie, first of all, it's great to be with you. You could call this story crap you can't make up because I'll tell you, as a practicing physician, when COVID came to America and we started recommending a 150-year-old homeopathic remedy, high-dose vitamin D, high-dose zinc, high-dose C, getting healthy, losing weight, all the common sense solutions to helping people, we thought we were doing the right thing. And by the way, so did hundreds of thousands of people across the globe. In fact, we saw over 10,000 COVID patients in our clinics over that three-year period and we lost no one. And so when the federal government falsely accused me of violating a law that was completely made up, called the COVID Consumer Protection Act, Charlie, they said I violated this law 12,555,000 times at a price tag of $42,000 per violation. That's $508 billion the federal government sued me for. They put out two false press releases about me. We stood over the last two and a half years. I spent over $5 million defending myself. And we just recently, six weeks ago, got a favorable ruling of not guilty from our judge. And now we're on to our countersuits against our First Amendment freedom of speech violations of the federal government. So let's just kind of go through the facts here. The fact is that vitamin D levels have been proven through peer-reviewed studies to help any sort of, I think it was called a cytokosing storm, if I'm not mistaken, that the higher the vitamin D level, it's a fact, it very well would have helped the population fight COVID. Is that well-documented, well-known? Charlie, it's well-established. As a matter of fact, there's over 115 studies that shows the benefits of vitamin D and COVID-19 alone and over 24 peer-reviewed, double-blind studies that shows that the higher your levels of vitamin D are, the less chance of infection and severe risk. In fact, Charlie, November the 12th of 2022, there was a study that was done by the VA. Over 600,000 VA members were studied. John Hopkins put out the data. And Charlie, here's what they said. If doctors and scientists and politicians would have talked about the benefits of vitamin D3 alone during COVID 2020, that we could have prevented the infection of over 4 million cases and saved the lives of 116,000 Americans. That's one country, one year alone. But yet the government came after doctors like myself, tried to destroy us financially, professionally, personally, so that we wouldn't tell people the truth about natural solutions. Yeah. And so what I never understood is that if the government, well, I mean, I do understand it, obviously, because the government doesn't care about its people. But if the government would have said, hey, everyone get your vitamin D levels up in March, April and May, what is the average vitamin D level for an elderly person? I think it's under 20, right? Where it should be over 50. I mean, for an elderly person in particular, they don't get outside very much. They're not getting the same nutrition they did when they were younger. But vitamin D levels should be between 75 and 90, especially if you want an increased chance of fighting COVID. Is that correct, doctor? Charlie, you're 100 percent spot on. In fact, the data shows that if it's if you have your levels above 60, that's the adequate level between 60 and 100, 110. In fact, if you go and look at the actual research, look at the individuals that showed the highest risk for COVID fatalities, people that are overweight, people that are dark skinned, people that are diabetics, people that are on certain medications like high blood pressure and cholesterol meds. Boris Johnson came out in early 2021 and said that they're going to give a million dosages of vitamin D to the most vulnerable people in the UK. So I went to our government and said, hey, we have the ability to do that here in Missouri. I can get it at cost. Let's subsidize this. You just told me that you have one hundred million dollars of COVID surplus money. Let's take a couple of million and save some people's lives. Charlie, they wouldn't do it. Not only would they not do it, they attacked me. They shut down five of my bank accounts. They froze my assets. They went after my my businesses. They shut our practices down to the point where insurance companies would no longer provide for our patients insurance coverages. I mean, it's reprehensible. We are the epitome of why more doctors don't stand up against medical tyranny. Yeah. And so let's also talk about obesity. This was one thing that was a total thought crime. And again, if anyone wants to lose weight, go to my Ph.D. Weight loss dot com. They're big supporters of our show. We talk about them a lot. My Ph.D. Weight loss dot com. But talk about what is the data show somebody who was 40 pounds overweight versus someone who was trim, how they handled COVID? Oh, I mean, it's it's it's night and day difference. I mean, we know that the more inflammation you have, the more weight you have, the more inflammation you have, the more obese you are, the more toxins you have in your body and the less likelihood that you have of having a regular immune response to any infections of all cause. Charlie, we know that obesity is one of the leading causes of of Parkinson's, dementia, Alzheimer's, chronic fatigue, chronic pain, infections, all of these things. It's so mind blowing to me that all of the illness doctors didn't listen to the wellness doctors when we were saying, let's go out and let's help people lose weight. Let's reduce the risk of infection. Let's go out and reduce the blood sugars and the high blood pressures. And we can do that by exercise. In fact, Charlie, a huge study just came out that said exercise may have been one of the best medicines at preventing and treating covid-19. And these are the same people that shut down the gyms and told people they couldn't go outside and be around each other. It's absolutely insane. It's almost like they don't want you to be healthy. They want to keep us fat, sick and nearly dead so they can control us, Charlie. So if you were a heavy drinker, what does that do to jeopardize health outcomes if you were to get covid? Well, if you're a heavy drinker, obviously that puts a lot of stress on your liver. It puts a lot of stress on the detoxification pathways of your body can cause you to have a higher risk of inflammatory responses and the cytokine storm that you were talking about. And if you're drinking, you're going to have a higher risk of of not just getting infected, but of death of all cause that's been proven. And again, they kept the the alcohol, they kept the drugs. That's the point. I'm not here to shame. I'm not a drinker. I'm not here to shame people if they drink. I'm just saying, though, that the government, though, made a priority to keep the liquor stores open. But the clinics that could have put zinc, vitamin D, glutathione, alpha lipoic acid, you know, vitamin C infusions, the FTC has come so harshly after them. And it's as if they wanted the populace to be fat, unhealthy and prone to death. Charlie, you're 100% spot on. In fact, myself and about 700 other clinics in the United States of America that practice orthomolecular nutrition, which is IV vitamin C and IV other therapeutics, we were sent a preventative letter, literally a letter from the FTC saying that you cannot recommend vitamin C infusions for covid, for sepsis, for any of these things, which we now know without a shadow of a doubt, the work that Dr. Paul Merrick did and the work that's been done on sepsis. We know that most people that had the cytokine storm had it because they didn't have levels of certain nutrients like vitamin D. And most people that died of the cytokine storms or the multisystem organ failure, Charlie, it was because sepsis was in their blood and vitamin C is a known reducer of sepsis and death. We could have prevented so many deaths, so many illnesses and so much suffering financially and politically. But it was all because of ignorance and doctors like myself that stood up against this tyranny and that went all the way to the health boards, to Congress, to the Supreme Court to talk about these things. They tried to destroy us systematically and they're still trying to do it today so that we don't tell the truth about what happened to us in the past. So I want to just read from one of the news headlines here, which I find is hilarious. They say that you have agreed to pay an eighty thousand dollar fine. Not that's that part's not hilarious, but to refrain from marketing his vitamin products as effective, as effective preventative preventatives against covid-19. That's funny. I've heard that word effective. They said the vaccine is effective. So when is Pfizer going to have to pay over 80 billion dollars to the American people? Charlie, they're the ones that violated the COVID Consumer Protection Act. Pfizer, Moderna, J &J, NIH, NIAID. And by the way, the eighty thousand dollars that we agreed to, they gave me two choices. They said, Dr. Naputi, you can continue to go to the trial. We know that we're going to lose in trial. We know that the DOJ said we know that we cannot prevail. We know that you're going to beat us. We're going to go ahead and just drag this out into appeals. We're going to go ahead and cost you another two to three million dollars, another two to three years of legal fees. Or you can go ahead and pay what I call an extortion fee, which is what that was, which is less than half of what my monthly legal bills were. And I can have no gag order. I can have liability protection from the FTC, from all this stuff moving forward. And I can go out and tell the truth and keep helping saving people lives. Charlie, and that's what we're going to do. That's why we're all about real talk, telling people the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. And I love the opportunity to be here to tell your listeners about it. Yeah. Remind the audience about the FTC. This is an out of control government agency that is basically an aggressive weapon of the regime. They go after gun owners. They got Operation Choke Point. They go after payment processors that they don't like. And then they go after IV clinics, especially remind our audience about the Federal Trade Commission. The FTC is a non-government organization. It's by, it's bureaucrats only. By the way, there's five commissioners of the FTC. Two of the five commissioners resigned, stating that Linda Kahn, who is the chairwoman of the FTC, is using a prejudice and her own personal vendettas to go after people that have political opinions other than hers and the Biden regime.

So, doctor, build that out further. It's as if the government doesn't want you to be the healthiest you possibly can. Well, Charlie, I think it's really simple. Whenever you can control people's health, you can control everything about them. I mean, our health other than our relationship with God is our most important asset. And I will tell you, over my last 22 years in clinical practice, literally seeing millions of people across the globe. It's crazy to me how many people are number one without knowledge of what health really is. And I think it's interesting, Charlie, you alluded to it a little bit in our first segment together. The people who got us into these problems cannot be the people that get us out of these problems. And we're talking to the supposed experts who have gotten everything wrong from the beginning about how to handle this pandemic, everything from masking, social distancing to the risk factors and what can be done to actually truly help people. Most people don't realize that big pharma actually owns some of the language that we communicate with. You're not allowed to use the word prevent, mitigate, reverse, cure or treat unless it's with a drug. If you have a patient who comes to seize you and has cancer or heart disease or diabetes or something of that nature, and you as a physician treat them and help them get cured without pharmaceutical drugs, you could lose your license or your livelihood. It's way deeper than that. People can even imagine. We spend more than the top 100 industrialized countries combined on health care. And Charlie, you and I would be okay with that if we got the very best results, if we had the highest health ratings. But we rank in the lower third, below countries like Mexico and other third world countries, and that's the United States of America. And we fared the worst when it came to COVID. We spent more money than all the other countries combined, but yet we had the worst outcomes. Our definition of insanity is playing out. We're doing the same thing again and again and again and expecting a different result. We've got to change the way we think, change the way we act and change the people that we listen to that are supposed experts.

Lockdowns Cause 300,000 Axcess Deaths
"In 2022, CDC researchers found that heart disease deaths increased by 4% in 2020. Representing about 5 years of lost progress in the fight against America's leading killer. Deaths from drug overdoses increase too. With the nation recording a record 108,000 overdose fatalities in 2021. That is a 15% increase from the previous all time high count in 2020. Doctor Steven henke in The Economist at the Baltimore Maryland school that is Johns Hopkins, I believe that it is that Johns Hopkins found the strict COVID protocols in early 2020 save 10,000 lives across the U.S. and Europe. He led research into the true impact of lockdowns alongside researchers from Sweden in Denmark, finding the devastating policies only reduced COVID mortality by one tenth of 1%. Doctor hanke told daily mail, the lockdown study found that lockdowns in the spring of 2020 had a negligible effect on COVID mortality.
Dr. Marty Makary: Study Shows COVID Natural Immunity Lasts up to 22 Months
"We finally answered the question that public health officials have dangled as an unknown to the last two years And that is does natural immunity stand up to the test of time And so my research colleagues at Johns Hopkins and I did a large study where we invited 800 people who were not vaccinated And those who had a positive COVID test in the past they had circulating antibodies 99.3% of them and those antibodies were present up to 20 months almost two years after because that's as long as we had people around who had the infection So natural immunity is present It's there It's durable It works And the NIH should have been doing this study not us They've got $42 billion My colleague Steve hanke who's an outstanding senior researcher at Johns Hopkins head of the applied economics institute Also looked at the effectiveness of lockdowns and found as you know there was no significant benefit on mortality Two tenths of 1% in terms of reduction versus a massive increase in non COVID excess mortality almost a quarter million people who died just from all the restrictions and everything we did Some people think he shouldn't have done that study They think we should not have evaluated whether or not lockdowns work I would argue this is the biggest intervention in human history and
Rich Zeoli: Government Will Justify Lockdowns for Climate Change, Not Just COVID
"What is the greatest existential threat to all of us being alive right now Not aliens it's climate change They say the biggest threat Far worse than COVID So if they can justify lockdowns for COVID and they're still talking about doing them Places around the world are starting to open up but sadly there are some places where they still have a lot of restrictions Could they do for climate change You bet Oh you bet Absolutely they could In fact every now and then you'll hear a story about somebody going out there and saying you know the world was much cleaner During lockdown they were far less emissions In fact it was quieter too because everybody wasn't driving The earth was cleaner So maybe we should start doing periodic lockdowns again so that we can make sure the earth is nice and clean You think I'm kidding I'm not kidding Johns Hopkins came out and said lockdowns are a disaster They're disaster economically a disaster mentally physically emotionally a disaster all across the board But even outside of lockdowns we are not back to normal yet You see Biden every time Biden's out there everyone around him is in a mask These people are all vaccinated they're all with the masks and today he walks away from the podium forget to where he is then he doesn't have his mask on And senator Amy Klobuchar had a run up whisper something in his air then he puts his mask on then Jill has to walk him off the stage like I guess he's got to get back for the early bird special It was not a good

Scientific Consensus Pre-COVID Said Lockdowns Don't Work
"So folks I was not aware of this that the scientific consensus pre coronavirus was that lockdowns were basically ineffective and there was no science to back them up And there wasn't just a couple of studies and natural studies out there in nature things we had done I was a lot of studies It was a large volume of material and a widely held scientific consensus that lockdowns were generally ineffective That there was no way to make them work matter of fact one of the stories I had read this week and it's Wall Street Journal piece It's called the fickle science of lockdowns Experts foresaw before COVID that the strategy would fail But the authorities embraced it anyway They talk about this story in the piece about how even on military facilities Where if there's ever a place you can institute a very effective quarantine lockdown that they point out that even on military basis what has been studied in China it's still wasn't that effective So you have to ask yourself that as Jim shaken has had there then why the hell did we do this Well the journal speculates here They say so why did they abandon their oppositional lockdowns Public health authorities Why rush to embrace untested claims of flawed epidemiological modeling Well one answer appears in a Johns Hopkins study from 2019 Here's a quote some NPIs are talking about interventions here such as travel restrictions and quarantine Might be pursued for social or political purposes By political leaders rather than pursued because of public health evidence

How Do We Process the Alternate Reality That Exists in Our World?
"Yet conservatives and Republicans are still pushing the vaccine. Despite all the evidence around them, they say it's a pandemic of the unvaccinated. And I want to close on this note, Daniel, I want to be respectful of your time. How do you personally process how we have people living in absolutely different universes as if there's a different existence occurring? It's maddening for me quite honestly and I just decide just to keep telling the truth and keep moving forward. But when I see Republicans that are coming up this year, I know the vaccine is the greatest thing ever. It's actually it's preventing all the harm and suffering. Meanwhile, we look at the United Kingdom, 223 COVID deaths today, highest daily number of deaths since March 79% of the population 12 and older is fully vaccinated. How do we process this alternate reality? Within our own within our own world. And by the way, Charlie, it's interesting, England, as I said, same delta, as it was the first delta wave in May, now is very problematic. That's after the 5 6 month Pfizer leakage benchmark just so you know, so that's actually a very good example of what I'm talking about. Now they are getting a problem. They are, by the way, luckier than the American south because they got the benefits of the transmissibility of delta earlier on the cheap. So they do have more built up immunity. They're not going to have as many deaths as we did, but they are having problems. How do I square this? Look, you read the Johns Hopkins papers over the last decade. And now I'm getting into this. Peter bragan has an amazing book on this that traces the timeline. And they've been working on this forever. And at the end of the book, he literally is a timeline. And I'm shocked, like it is shocking the stuff. It's creepy. The stuff they talk about, they talk about PR campaigns. It's a scope. So you either get it or you're a victim of it. It's not
The Power of Natural Immunity From COVID
"What is important for me to tell you is that I believe that what I had decided to do over the course of the last year and a half, I believe has been justified. I wanted to achieve natural immunity, which is by far the more robust immunity that one can have against the COVID or any virus. As Morton mccary, Marty Mackay, professor Johns Hopkins school of medicine, and the Bloomberg school of public health and the editor in chief of med page today wrote in The Washington Post, natural immunity to COVID is powerful policy makers seem afraid to say so. More than 15 studies have demonstrated the power of immunity acquired by previously having the virus. A 700,000 were person study from Israel to weeks ago this is a few months ago. Found that those who had experienced prior infections were 27 times less likely to get a second symptomatic COVID infection than those who were vaccinated. Did you hear that? 700,000 person study in Israel, 27 times less likely than vaccinated people.

Powell with COVID complications a conversation on this present pandemic Joshua sharfstein John Hopkins It's most likely you know pretty pretty significant I would think that for that particular strain it's going to be durable Most people are saying at least for a couple years the real question mark here though is whether there is a mutation in the virus that makes the vaccine not so good in which case it's not really a booster It's a different vaccine against a different form of the virus that we might need Josh there is an issue right now not only of the developed world which frankly does seem to be on the decline when it comes to the number of COVID cases Thankfully But the rest of the world that might not have access to vaccines are the big biopharmaceutical companies doing the best that they can in your view to increase distribution and supplies to the other countries that have not yet really seen penetration with vaccines Now in my view know they're not And it's really appalling unfortunately and particularly I think the criticism for Moderna has been pretty intense because the company is selling just a very very small amount of vaccine Sometimes at high prices to low income countries and there are many many parts of the world that have very poor access to those two very effective vaccines I think Pfizer is considered to be doing somewhat better job But really what we need is real manufacturing capacity in those countries so that they're not dependent on exports And in the future they can use that capacity if there is another strain that needs a vaccine or there are other vaccines that need to be made And the government really funded the technology here and many different ways It is really appropriate for that technology to be transferred effectively Where is the burden here Should it be on the public sector because this is a global health issue and it's not just a humanitarian one It's also about health to get the COVID under control around the world Or is this really on the specific private biopharmaceutical companies Well there's such a mix in terms of how this whole project worked I mean the technology was supported by investments from the public sector the actual vaccines You know we're only possible because of guaranteed purchases and upfront investments in the case of Moderna from the public sector And so that's where the technology is You can't say to the public sector well you know go fix it without the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines Those are public sector creations And so it is really all of our responsibility To the world not just to be handing out vaccines but to be helping them go to their capacity to make them themselves We all have our way of measuring this natural disaster doctor sharpstein For me I look at one statistic in one of the papers And the good news is it's ebbing down Number of deaths per day Do you have a target for number of deaths per day in the United States of America Well you know I'm really looking forward to it going under a hundred I mean we're still at like 1500 Yeah I'm using 1500 Correct Yeah It's really high I mean I think that I mean I feel like we're in a much better place than we're at under a hundred a day which is totally possible You know I think with vaccination and with the little bit of passage of time here you know but we really do have to keep pushing forward Don't do just quickly What is the efficacy of the J&J vaccine after 6 months What are we finding out about that We're finding out that I think kind of holding steady in the 70s somewhere Particularly for hospitalization And that is not as good as the other vaccines which is I think what you're hearing at the FDA advisory committee So why are we so why are we still using that here in America then Doctor why are we not just pushing that one to one side and saying look the efficacy is not there Why keep using it You know that's not an unfair question to ask I think that part of the reason is that it looks pretty good with two doses So I think that and that second dose may be from one of the other vaccines it may be that the FDA will say it's fine to use a booster with a different dose But you're asking a good question You know why start out with it if we have these other vaccines I'll give you one other reason which is that there are some people who are allergic to some of the components of the mRNA vaccines they can not take them In which case you know the Johnson Johns a vaccine that's a good alternative Josh Richards in there of Johns Hopkins today Huge news flow we hope

they put out some forecasts when they launched this thing a year and a half two years ago And I think they had some great great early success launching Disney+ And as people look out to the out years of some of these subscriber projections given the competition and they're just kind of calling to question some of those numbers And that's a big question mark because again you've got that fixed cost

"You make science the ideal and you don't really know what you're using science for then you're going to do all sorts of goofy and nature pushing experiments halfway around the world. Because you think that you can reengineer human beings that is a belief that came out of johns hopkins back in the eighteen seventies. It's this police. German historicism that human beings are not made in the natural order or a natural law. But if we look through microscope if we got enough smart people in a room we can reengineer you. That's how you get these sociopaths. That run the cdc and nih that that quite honestly are incredibly dangerous given the amount of power they have and they they believe it's their life mission. Not just the control you. That's that's part of it. it's to reengineer you. It's it's that. Human beings are not made in a certain way. Is they say oh you try and stop me. I'm going to change human behavior. We're going to change human dna. That's the whole idea of how this entire virus came and this we have to trust science. Yeah without science. Wouldn't have this virus meaning that the way that science science has been operating. The western world is not science to be able to protect human equality as we know it or natural liberty or god or deigned liberty now. It's the tried to have mass social control and to try to make you comply and let me just say one thing about the vaccine. I'm not getting the vaccine and there's nothing you can say that will make me and if you chose to get the vaccine. I'm not like a vaccine. Shame or i don't do that. Everyone makes their own decisions and mark. You had a great segment on that where they tried to call you anti vaccine even though you took the vaccine the point is this though. We all know what's really going on here is that they are now circling the unvaccinated which i am a member of and they are going to use every single form of corporate power mythic ridicule mockery governmental power to try and have a trial run for. What's coming next. This is the frontlines of the most important issue in our time. Are we going to allow on elected unknown and unchecked bureaucrats in the fourth branch of government to be able to comment in direct concert with the top one hundred companies and go after people's deeply held medical decisions or we actually going to push back against. This is the question of our time and quite honestly a lot of republicans have been playing ball for this for parts too

"john hopkins" Discussed on WMAL 630AM
"Makary will be here. Johns Hopkins University to talk about the latest with this full approval by the FDA of the Pfizer vaccine. What does it mean for the country? What comes next? Dr Martina Carrie will have all of that. At 5 15. We chat with Mark Krikorian, executive director for the Center for Immigration Studies as well. We'll talk about these Afghan refugees and route to the United States of America and in particular to our area, arriving at dullest over the weekend, someone going to Virginia Community College, Others to Dulles Expo Center will get the latest from Mark. Meantime, let's talk a little bit more about Afghanistan because Lieutenant Colonel James Carafano wants to weigh in on on all of this. He's the Heritage Foundation's vice president for national security and foreign policy. Colonel Carafano. Nice to talk to you, sir. Hey, great to be with you. We see, Um the Secretary of State Tony Blinken was on. Uh, one of the Sunday shows this weekend with Chris Wallace on Fox and was asked point blank. Whether or not the president of the United States knows what's going on because the president keeps making all of these statements in public. That bear no resemblance to the reality on the ground, And it's gotten to the point that you know, Even the corporate press by a large is noticing that it's just not true. It's not true that Americans are able to easily get to the airport by flash, simply flashing. Um, their passports is just not true that Al Qaeda is not in Afghanistan and on and on. What are you thinking? As you're watching this leadership debacle and this exit from Afghanistan, the actually said at one point, Well, this is a deeply emotional moment for the president. Can you imagine if after Paul Harbor somebody came out and said, FDR can't talk right now. It's a deeply emotional moment for him. Uh, this listening look and I can factually state that people cannot get to the airport. I've had three phone calls today for people who literally have hundreds of people trapped with no way to get to the airport. Uh, yes. So the press secretary, so people aren't stranded. Well, yeah, I guess they're not technically stranded because there's a flight there if they could get to the airport, but they're not going to run. You know the gauntlet of death to get to the airport. So if this administration had dedicated a fraction of the energy It has into covering up its failures to actually dealing with the problem would be we would be way better off. Yes, and now we're finding out that one of the reasons why Americans are being told, Although they've been told all sorts of conflicting things like go to the airport, we won't be able to protect you don't go to the airport shelter in place. In the midst of all of this. We've heard that there is an outgrowth of Isis called Isis K that is serving as a threat of some kind to US citizens and anybody else who wants to make their way to the airport. What do we know? So, um, look, the Taliban have always maintain connections with terrorist groups. That's just factually true. It's an admixture of so apparently there are Faction of because a faction of Isis in Afghanistan that are working with Al Qaeda and the Taliban, as opposed to other Isis groups who were actually Fighting again. We're actually fighting with the Taliban. So it's a, uh and and the problem is, is it one is it's very difficult to say that People control. All these people, um to is is there actually are known terrorists in there actually working with the Taliban and and three is that there's also intelligence. It says, Look, they're just whipping up anti American attitudes. So they can stage a riot. And if they'll just stage a riot and say, Oh, it's not the Taliban. It's not Isis. It's the people rising up against the Americans. Which was shut down the airport and strand all these people, So it is a incredibly Paris situation. I got to tell you that we put a self imposed deadline of August 31st to get out of even if everybody could walk to the airport. I don't know if it's a throughput would actually accomplish that. And it's very clear that people cannot get to the airport. So I think the likelihood that August 31st will roll around and everyone that needs to get out to be safe will be safely out is virtually no. Yes. So now the Taliban, saying this morning that if the United States extends its presence there beyond August 31st, there will be consequences for that decision that that's almost stronger than anything the United States is even uttered during this crisis about the Taliban. Well, it's nonsense about that, as one as it was a U. S statement. It wasn't a Taliban imposed deadline. We impose the stupid deadline, and now the Taliban are just saying, Well, you promised right And look, we already know that people are paying off the Taliban to get people the airport. That's very In fact, we know the administration is behind the scenes begging and pleading with the Taliban not to shut this stuff down. The whole extraction. The whole evac is based on the good graces of the Taliban. They could shut this down whenever they want. The longer they dragged this out, the more nobody can really do anything. And it gives the Afghan Taliban more time to consolidate their control over the country, so dragging his eyes actually good for them on. It also humiliates the United States and that's good for them. And the thing is, at this point they can. They can rig this. So this whole thinking shut down, and they can blame the Americans. Goes or have a thing. They'll get the Americans to shoot back and clean. The Americans open fired on innocent Afghan people. This is a this is an utter disaster, and it's all because of how he did that Spuyten. Thought the Taliban would just let him walk away. So we had no plan. And then they actually forbid people from planning to secure an exit because they said, Well, people find out then then people will know and so we can't let anybody know what we're doing so therefore we can't do any planning. It was ridiculous, a ridiculous scenario, and now they're stuck with it and like I said, I wish they'd just put energy into actually getting people out. Julie Harris vice president left for the left for Asia. She was coming at like nine o'clock in the morning. She was working banker's hours. She didn't come in last weekend in the middle of the crisis. The president jets in he gives and he goes back to Delaware. He's not present. There's no whole of government effort. There's no interagency coordination or multinational effort being led by the United States. Literally. They are not. This would be like during Katrina. If President Bush, you know, went to watch a baseball game in Texas or from the middle of the Cuban missile crisis. Kennedy went to Martha's Virgin. You know the party with some girls? I mean, the administration is not laser focused on solving this problem, and we're getting these, like really weak statements from all the people are supposed to be in charge..

"Nothing they make any sense. None of it's valid because they always lie and nothing's anything so they all make their claims whether real or not an older gets dismissed and people just believe their side. It's almost made to be like that. The analysis is not definitive though and some experts remain skeptical and this is the frustrating part of it. We have countries around the world from twenty twenty screaming. This italy spain taiwan canada japan. I mean i know. I'm forgetting some of them. I've covered all of these and i have a links in the next show. The point is that they have all stood up and said varying degrees of this being present long before it was seen wuhan and but but not definitive. Don't over sure we're skeptical. Are you telling me they don't know about this information. They spoke indies other governments. Clearly this obviously limited hanging out but federal health officials are increasingly accepting a timeline in which small numbers of covid nineteen infections may have occurred in the us before the ever became aware of a dangerous new virus erupting in china very up in the air but it says quote. There was probably very rare and sporadic cases here earlier than we were aware of but it was not widespread and didn't become widespread late february. What you're just discovering something that you didn't even think there that you actually say was not there until you discovered this right. And so now. They're going but we discovered some cases sporadically and we're still doing research but it's not widespread. It wasn't there before. Okay so where's that definitive coming from. How do you know is not widespread. Had you know. It was played very wary. You don't know that and you're still discovering this is just like the narrative of the vaccine stolas even effective until we continue to find things that art and we just keep tacking that line on afterward a c. led study published in december. Twenty twenty the analyze seven thousand samples for american red cross. Blood donations suggested the virus infected some americans as early as the middle december. Twenty nine right we talked about. Nobody wants to talk about this stuff. This is only december though and it goes before that now again remember the point that said at the beginning that this does not mean that were nestled work claiming that this is exactly the truth were just simply showing you that there's plenty of reportable evidence that says it was there before and they're just ignoring it in favor of this narrative. That right now started in christmas. Mr doesn't nineteen because that can still be used in the narrative. They have from the beginning to now. The latest study published tuesday online journal. Clinical infectious diseases is by a team including researchers at the nih. Of course it is. They analyzed blood samples from. I mean isn't the nih busy with other things. Now who cares anything that will possibly affect the narrative. I'm sure they're evolved in the analyzed blood samples for more than twenty thousand people across the country collected in the first free months. Twenty twenty as part of a long-term study called all of us that seeks attract one million americans over years to study help. Now why would you only do it.

"Relative to testosterone and The story is the male hormone. The androgen men is hormone. Testosterone and testosterone is a very it helps the prostate grow up to be a mature prostate in actually access at differentiating. Agent it helps it function. So there's no question that it also drives prostate cancer cells to grow and if you have prostate cancer that's fully developed in is a true cancer. Then testosterone is helping net cancer to grow and if it spreads beyond the prostate and we can't treat it locally the mainstay of therapy. The first line therapy is to medically castrate. You a meaning that we give you a shot of this medicine. Called blueprint it tells the brain to stop sending signals to the testicles to make testosterone that causes the cancer to regress. Go to sleep. It doesn't Men with prostate cancer but it puts him in remission for usually multiple years but men who have true hypo addison as they age and you replace them to a normal level of testosterone for their age. They are no higher increased risk of developing prostate cancer. That's been well. Established am curious for either one of you if you get tested at age fifty nine and you're negative when you're sixty. Do you still have a sixty percent chance of having it or at that. Point is a much lower now so again. We're getting into a little bit of apples and oranges here. So when you talk about that. Sixty percent of guys age sixty who have prostate cancer. You're really talking about that indolent form. That's never gonna raise its ugly head and that's the same no matter what whether you're fifty nine or sixty. That amount is going to be there in those men. What we're really screening for is trying to find the the men who are going to have their cancer growing in developing so the guy who's fifty nine let's say is. Psa is one and he's one of those guys that has that low grade prostate cancer. Well when we look at sixty he may be one point two or one point three but a guy who has a higher grade cancer will go from one to one point seven or one point eight and that change over time in a year. We know if your psa goes up more than point seven five nanograms per meal. No matter what your psa is you probably need a biopsy. We don't wait until somebody has a. Psa up four can win people tune into this show first thing is. They're going to be shocked that they're gonna listen to a show that isn't about covert that's right. I have to admit we're guilty as charged. It's been our focus now for quite a while. But i've gotta ask. How depressed are the numbers of people who are getting themselves properly checked and screened and during this time of covid when people seem to be avoiding just about everything but unless they suddenly find themselves with covert bill. It's so scary. There have been many estimates out there about all the excess deaths that are occurring in the united states and around the world because people couldn't get care initially when kobe i hit but now are too afraid to go out and be seen at the hospital. And that's been estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands and we're going to see those numbers spike for a while because all the people that didn't get their colon cancer screening all the people that didn't have their mammograms all the people that didn't get their prostates. They're gonna end up with more advanced disease. That's not curable so we're going to see this downstream effects of this horrible pandemic for multiple years yet.

"We're back with dr kenneth and dr steven tibet. Some years ago. I got a chance to tour your proton therapy center which is probably the most amazing sight anybody can see. Do you use proton therapy with urological issues. Like this or do you kind of go right to you. Don't really need your prostate. It's better off if it comes out. Prostate cancer that is localized to the prostate can be cured. In two ways one is to remove the prostate. The other is some form of radiation therapy. That certainly involves external beam radiation therapy. Which means that the photons are generated outside the body and shot into the prostate area. Or they're still some cases where we use seed implants as well as external beam radiation therapy when you take external beam radiation you can break it down into. Photon external beam radiation therapy and proton external beam radiation therapy and proton machines were originally designed a because they can be very accurate in treating the planning and hitting their what they're supposed to hit and not doing too much other damage right in sparing normal tissue in actually the first use of protons were for like kids with spinal tumors where you really had to protect that spinal cord to be honest. Protons work great for prostate cancer. But they don't work better because we have something called computed tomography plan conformable three d. Planning basically means we use the cat scan in multiple parameters to draw lines around the prostate. Treat just that. And so protons are just as good but not better for prostate so guys who wanna get radiation rather than surgery they have a choice between photons of protons and quite. Frankly it doesn't matter would you hesitate to be using radiation. Would imagine for the most part if you've not had any metastasis but would you be using radiation and hormone therapy in a young men with prostate cancer yet. So great question and the reality again is it's patient choice. Both are equally curative. In there guys who do not want to get cut. They don't want a knife near them and they look at the statistics of incontinence and impotence. And maybe they're a little better with radiation. maybe not but because it's equally cured. If they choose that. I'm not out of place to say. More young men choose surgery than radiation. But it's also a choice but most guys younger guys especially go. I don't wanna live with cancer in me. Get it out. I want to see it into bucket so to speak. And that's really reasonable so you've actually mentioned it though so we should probably go a little further the side effects of both. I guess you see it with radiation but it certainly more advertise with surgery of incontinence and impotence. What percentage are we talking about. Those people who undergo treatment that wind up with long-term incontinence and or impotence yet so always a tricky question not so tricky so the first thing you have to ask is how good was the guys directions before he started right. Because everybody's having sex five days a week and even when they're seventy and that's part of it right but the reality is you do have to have a good erection test. Start with take that. Aside the major side effects the major morbidity associated with radical prostatectomy are incontinence and impotence. And of course at johns hopkins pat walsh defined in haya near the nerve sparing radical prostatectomy before. He started doing that in the eighties. No guy was able to get into action after surgery because you took the nerves out. That helped you get interaction now. What they try to do is. There's two nerve bundles on each side of the prostate. You'll need one of them to have an erection so a surgeon tried to leave the one on the side. that doesn't have cancer so to speak. What would you say would be. The percentage of men who wind up having their pre surgical function remain post op. Yeah so it takes a while to recover. But i think most folks would say seventy five. Eighty percent of men will recover their ability to have sex and have good sex. So obviously we've been talking about. Surgery is an option for the treatment of prostate cancer. And maybe speaking for the men listeners. Just it would be nice not to ever have to even deal with surgery or prostate cancer treatment. The question is is there something that a man can do. Relative to lifestyle or diet that will actually have a real impact on preventing prostate cancer. I wish there was unlike. So many cancers where we know. True risk factors prostate. Cancer is not one of those cancers where we can alter lifestyle in a way that we know is going to decrease your risk of prostate cancer. I can tell you this is just good health advice right. Obesity is bad. Being fat is bad. If you look at all men with prostate cancer those men who are overweight who are diagnosed with prostate cancer or no matter when they're diagnosed their overall mortality cancer. Specific mortality is higher. Than if you're not over weight lacey. So is there in immunotherapy that is currently under research for prostate cancer. So there are several that are being studied for prostate cancer and the history of prostate cancer. Immunotherapy is actually pretty interesting because the first immunotherapy that was ever really approved for a cancer was pro bench. The special vaccine therapy that was so controversial back in the nineties about whether we should be giving that to people. But when you really talk about immunotherapy these days. You're talking about the checkpoint. Inhibitors the immuno therapies. That let the immune system turn onto fight cancer and that are so successful in diseases like melanoma kidney cancer now bladder cancer in just about every other cancer but not prostate prostate cancer. There is no approved immunotherapy. We are on multiple generations of testing for new immuno therapies. we are defining subsets of men. Who will respond to a checkpoint inhibitor. But that's it's a small percentage of men with prostate cancer somewhere in the range of three to five percent. We can identify those guys now and we'll give it to him but immunotherapy to date is not a success story for prostate cancer. So historically we've seen men on loop ron and you said if you come to me chances are going to remove your testicles employs that the male hormone is a negative factor relative to prostate cancer. And yet i've heard a mixed feelings mixed opinions about especially as men grow older. Their testosterone levels often wayne and many men are seeking for testosterone punishment for various reasons. Is that a negative factor relative prostate cancer. It would seem that. If you're giving medications like loop ron which which kind of bolster female hormones that male hormones would be a negative and a contra indicated former therapy where do you stand on that and the state of the art.

"Ready for full physical activity and i hope one thing that will help is the study of ours that have mentioned. It's called apex or addressing post intensive care syndrome. So it's a federally funded study to actually measure. Empirically measure about these discharged needs and the implications of patients. Having unmet healthcare discharged needs and readmission to appear clearly. Show that there's a link between these two things and we hope that that's a first step towards influencing discharge process on the outpatient delivery of healthcare services if a person becomes confined in an icu. What advice do you have to that patient to the our listeners. In case they someday find themselves in an icu. What should they be doing as patients while they're lying in bed that can help their own recovery. So interestingly as we said at our johns hopkins critical care conference every year. We start out with a patient family interview and we learn so much by talking to our patients so interestingly if some patients know that they're going to have an intensive care unit stay because they're having a major surgery were in intensive care unit. Stays is normal. There can even be preparations before this so somebody's having natured cardiac surgery lung surgery where it's known that they're going to go to an intensive carrying talking through say you may have confused thinking in other words delirium and giving some anticipation for this patients have told us that having knowledge beforehand about delivering may help them feel less anxious. I think engaging family members is going to be so important beginning to help educate patients and family members at being awaken. Moving really is the secret to getting better as quickly as possible. I think that's also very helpful as well. Dale what if one of our listeners feels that they're experiencing the symptoms you've described long after they have left the icu. What would you suggest they do. Head of the handle it. So that's not an unusual situation in that sometimes patients suffering silence and thinks that they're the only one that's having these problems and sometimes some of the clinicians that they go to see aren't aware of post intensive care syndrome and aren't aware that these are real consequences of them having been critically ill so the society of critical care medicine has web pages specifically for patients that explain this an easy to understand terms and are things that patients can bring to their primary care teens to say. Hey is this. What's happening for me. And they're also our virtual online support groups for example many people who are very seriously ill in the ice who have something called air yes acute respiratory distress syndrome so the aired yes foundation has a very popular facebook page and people can interact and get support so there are many many things that are out there to help through this particular through things like the society of critical care medicine. The foundation surviving sepsis campaign. Many many things interesting last quick question there seems to be a bit of a trend where virtual reality is being used in patient care especially wants to patients go home. Can you talk about that just a bit sure. So there is interest even in the intensive care unit so before i get into the virtual reality part of our rehabilitation for some of our patients. Physical rehabilitation may involve interactive video games. So for some of our higher functioning patients that need a challenge. They may use a balance or they do boxing to work on their arm strengthened and coordination. They may do bowling green and it also provides some sort of engagement and fun elements as well so interactive video games may be used for patients that are on life support machines when they're awake alert and and can move around in terms of virtual reality. There are people who are interested about yes. Could we change the perception of the ice you environment to make it less scary for patients. That's something that's not sort of within my area of expertise but it's something that i've heard a little bit about and i think people are interested even in the ice you environments and thinking about it but certainly of course there's going to need to be a lot of investigation to look and see what the patient's perception of that is and is the safe is this feasible. Is it an official. These are interesting ideas that many people are thinking about. That's it steve. I think you need bowling without a doubt. Dr dale needham and dr steven tailback.

"Back with dr dale needham daily. Understand where you're coming from. I just can't imagine where you find the kind of staff the kind of nursing and doctors that can handle the wrapping their arms around the psychology involved with this and the care and the time and must be multiplying. The staff in an icu. Fourfold to be able to handle something like this as opposed to a bunch of patients that are basically sleeping so we've had no change in our staffing from the bad old days when our patients were deeply sedated to this modern approach so we did a structured quality improvement project many years ago to bring us from the dark ages of deep sedation and haitians lane motionless to the modern era and there's been no change in our staffing whatsoever in terms of nurses with this approach to care. Interestingly when patients are waking alert they can actually participate or assist in their own care. They are less likely to suddenly be agitated and had unpredictable behavior when they're not delirious from the sedation medications that were given to them so we haven't had a change in our nursing staffing and our nurses. Interestingly we've done qualitative research we've had an independent interviewer talk to our nursing. Talk to all of the people on a multidisciplinary team do in-depth semi structured interviews task and our nurses tell us that this approach to care gibson greater job satisfaction to see them actually participating in patients recovering interacting with patients so specifically then aside from keeping the patients more awake and alert in what ways of the nurses interacting with the patients that are going to help them physically and cognitively what are they doing with their patients sure so when patients are alert our nurses can then begin to reorient them engage them. In cognitive stimulation so cognitive stimulation may be having conversations. We have some printed cards that are used for cognitive sizes. So so that's one thing in terms of cognition. They can then actually provide reassurance to patients when they're thinking is not confused and the patients seems to be anxious. They can begin to say. Why are you feeling anxious. The patient might feel anxious simply because they're too hot or too cold and the nurse can actually understand that when they're not confused and then adjusting so that they're more comfortable. Patients may be able to write with paper and pen or communicate with an ipad or text messaging to help with communication so cognitive stimulation social support and psychological support but when patients are awake then our nurses may actually get patients to sit on the edge of the bed to stand beside the bed to walk and sit in a chair outside of the bed. Well they've got a breathing tube in place if we don't allow our patients to have bedrest and get better. Nurses often are able to help patients with those kind of mobility activities. Many of the patients walked into the hospital. So why should they not be able to sit up and stand and get out of the bed if we don't mandate bedrest and allow their muscles to waste away. What role does the family play in this issue. So families are incredibly important. There's nobody that's going to help. Reassure a patient better than family member so if a family member can be at the bedside or for family member can join through video. Conferencing bat can often help. Reassure a patient can reorient to patient can encourage your patient you know look at. You're doing so great. Can you get out of bed. We have so many of our older patients for instance who are just so thrilled. If through video conferencing they can see their grandchild their grandchild gives them the incentive that they want to get better. You know we said as soon as you get better. We know that you want to go home. We know that you'd prefer to go home rather than going to a rehabilitation or skilled nursing facility. Can we work together. Now when you're in the ice yusup can get home to that branch out even faster so you know i. I have to extend bills question because this notion that she did not have to expand resources. I can see where that's true with nursing staff because nurses are all always very engaged and the right there at the bedside but from the physical therapists perspective where before you had forty patients and half of them were deeply sedated to now a culture change where everybody is awake so now you are expected to do more in terms of not just range of motion but in terms of actual increased mobility for these patients. How do you have enough support if you did not expand your physical therapy team. You're absolutely right. I am so fortunate that we did expand our staffing in physical. Therapy ended occupational therapy. And we did that through creating a business case. We demonstrate it to the hospital that early occupational physical therapy interventions oath improved patient outcomes and reduced the length of stay so we so call bent the cost curve. We better outcomes at a lower cost recreated a business case to the hospital saying this is a win win. The hospital understood this and invested so that we did expand expanders ot and pt staffing. Exactly what you said. I need to buy that study from you. And present presented to our administration so we did create a business case and actually we created an excel model. Which is a standard way that finance people talk to each other. That's freely available in downloadable so that a hospital can plug their own data in create a financial analysis to bring to their financial people's art of a business case so we really do want to create practical resources to help people improve air within their hospital even if they're not a finance person to start dale. I imagine you're probably involved next november four through six. Johns hopkins has your ten th annual johns hopkins critical care rehabilitation conference and. You're actually giving away the recipes to all of your research and all of your actions absolutely we are and what happened is as we published more and more about this. We get so many asks for help by email every single day and we simply don't have an ability to respond to all of them in the level of detail got we would want because we want them to understand everybody's perspective because it takes a team so as a result ten years ago we create at the johns hopkins critical care rehabilitation conference. We originally hoped that maybe we would have thirty people a ten in the very first year that we offered it. We sold out. We had three hundred people attend. That was the maximum capacity with two hundred on a wait list so every year since then we've continued to conference to bring together our entire multidisciplinary team to as you say. Show the secret sauce. Show what the research evidences but show how you implemented in practice how you do culture change talk about all of the practical things in fact we have patients and family members as part of that conference that talk about what the experience is like from their perspective as well as so many frontline clinicians. That aren't part of the research team but are just part of everyday clinical care and saying how they actually do this in their practice so it is a tremendous learning experience that we spend an awful lot of time to get out to.
