The Kidneys Connection to Our Emotions
"Today. We're going to go off on a different subject here about kidneys. You guys haven't heard us discuss kidneys very much in the past episodes but we thought with everyone being a little bit on the fearful angry side we would address kidneys because they very much have to do with those emotions. So the name of this show today is called the kidneys connection to our emotions. And we're going to tell you a little bit about what to look for when you might suspect it your kidneys what you can take to help. Get them better and we also have a question at the end that we're going to answer. So Dr Lewis. Could you tell us why you have chosen to discuss the kidney connection today on our podcast? Well Yeah I'd love to. I chose to do this because Janet wanted to. That's right that is true. You know I think the main thing is is because the throughout this Kobe stuff that I think is you know crock. Crap but You know we. We've been told things so long so loud. You know you can tell a lie long enough and loud enough people begin to believe it and so saying stay safe Co home. Stay home be safe in. Its implying that US people like me. That think it's a crock that get out or sinful and where. The enemy were being brainwashed. Folks you've got to think past that and I'm absolutely amazed at the people that choose. It's a choice. They choose to cower down in fear and and we've noticed that people are more agitated more irritated and that's me because I can't believe that idiocy that's going on like trying to get into home depot and his lap. Geez there's one hundred and fifty feet between everybody but you're worried about how many people walking in the store and one of the reasons that we as a society besides the mental spiritual they're throwing at us is because we're eating incorrectly. We're drinking to excess with when it talks when you talk about alcohol. Excessive to me is very little but Done tight much and we get irritated because we're putting our her kidneys under stress. One of the worst things you can do is have high blood pressure that you don't take care of either medically or naturally or both because at high blood pressure can really calls all kinds of problems with the kidney so please please please take care your kidneys. It it's incredible is super important but kidneys are their damaged from all sorts of things like certain drugs are really really tough on the kidneys and you have to watch that and you know. Have your doctor that puts you on the medications to monitor that but heavy metals our society full of heavy metals. It's full of solvents. It's of a chemotherapy. Does that Different Benham's snake insect spider and I went through a lot of that after God only knows how many Brown recluse spider about gotten and it will wreak havoc on your kid. He's poisonous mushrooms. I don't know anything about that because I don't experiment with those mushrooms that grow on cow patties like some people. I know Do it because it's a psychedelic psychogenic psychotic or something Pesticides and we know we've got pesticides all over the. It's really really really common in our food. Which is a sad thing and herbicides and people say but I'm not around our besides York Janet. I was coming to work two days ago. And there's the Texas highway department spraying herbicides. Oh Good God but you know us a goat to eat but we have done that to ourselves with the poisons in our society and renal failure and not even failure but when you put your kidneys in stress it can add to things like congestive heart failure diabetes or diabetes slash Metabolic Syndrome. Can put pressure on your kidneys. It can go both ways and lock said before the chronic hypertension a bad thing liver disease liberal ever you got. The liber is like a woman. The Lib rain happy. Ain't nobody happy. And then you have diseases. The autoimmune diseases like Lupus and sickle cell. Things like that There are people that have genetic tendencies the have issues with Kidneys like poly cystic. Disease and kidneys. Are They Tennessee to have mineral accumulations that she usually calcium? And we see that into your analysis. It'll say crystals calcium oxalate. Now you know. We can't make any claims about supplements but if you're having calcium oxalate stones that usually means you have a lack of magnesium or potassium to offset because we get minerals that out of balance. And that's the problem with our society mentally and physically because we get out of balance we forget to laugh. We forget to you know have a good time and I just love people that come in here and I'll go hug their neck and watch them freak out or I'll shake their hand and it's like you know we've been doing this for tens of thousands of years and it's not an issue in. Don't you enjoy the HUG and s? You're actually I do I. I like the way you social distance dot because I don't social distance. That's one of the things we're missing. Now is the social interaction. That is way way more important than any other thing now again. I I said disappear. Podcast AGO that they're scripture somewhere to Bible. I forget probably proverbs but is a wiseman foresees danger and takes precautions K. And I think that's a smart thing to do but the Bible also says in Titus very plainly. God didn't give you a spirit of fear so quick fear crap You talk about stones oxalate downs in nineteen seventy four when you say stoned rattling talking about oxalate stones. The ones that are GONNA be urine. Just what would those manifest in normal? Layman's terms that someone might understand that. They may have a kidney problem. Kidney Stones you know very sharp pain in the back and you know This is because one sweetheart of a sweetheart patients or no the different parts of magnesium and we're getting people that say well. I have this symptom and they want me to diagnose Office set a symptoms everytime time Janet. I give a list I say. Be careful though because these same symptoms can go with a different organ. Be careful how you diagnose off of just symptoms but one of the things That you can bet your bottom dollar as you're deficient in magnesium so I had this sweetheart patients they can you explain the different types of magnesium. I'm saying that because there's plenty of research says if you take magnesium it buffers The bad side effects of calcium or calcium oxalate stones that that's research that and it says be six. Pp and potassium so let's talk about. Magnesium purchased a little while because magnesium can take the anxiety irritability that we are feeling and. I think is obvious in my voice. It's like oh good. God quit despair crap but if you take magnesium there's actually research says magnesium if it's the right form can work even better. I'll stress anxiety. Depression era ability and anger than many many many drugs and again we can't make claims that but the research says it so let's talk just briefly about the different types of magnesium if you poop once a day or less unietd magnesium citrate now. We have that for people. They say about once as normal permissiveness common. But it's not normal. He got three trains in three trains. Out Is Janet says about three meals and three meals out so citrate because it was bound citric acid. And that's a pretty large molecule. And that's why you don't get enough in a multi vitamin or multi-mineral. Because it's a large molecule. Takes up too much. Real Estate It's a mild laxative. And so it's it's a great choice. Then you've got magnesium oxide folks it. They're putting oxide in your multi-donor multi-mineral throw it away. Because that's the cheap crap that yes it works as a laxative. But you don't really absorb it where you can absorb more the cows of magnesium citrate then you got the magnesium glassy night and it's a pretty gentle form that's what I'd generally suggest for people that have hypertension It slower going through the system. It absorbs a little bit less water. So you end up. Absorbing more of it It glasses night. Actually it's Connected to an Amino. Acid glossing blessing is incredibly incredibly incredibly important amino acid to help form neurotransmitters and calms your nerves.

Biotech Pipeline Updates
"We're in the middle of the cove in nineteen pandemic is continuing the escalate in California here. We're doing okay. The shelter in place seems to be Instituted in personally in San Diego we've seen the beaches and parks officially closed so that continues to escalate. But you know I'm doing okay out here things. Aren't that bad. As of now the situation does seem to be getting worse. And we're GONNA talk about that a little bit and I also want to talk about a few pipeline updates that we heard from some pretty cool company. So let's start with that and the first company wants to talk about is cassava sciences ticker symbol. Save A for those. Who Don't know but I did do a video on them. Maybe three or four years ago maybe two months and were waiting for their face to be dated. Come Out and this is a twenty eight day trial with their drug. Pti One to five. That is supposed to change the course of the disease in Alzheimer's patients so will we heard a pipeline update and their CEO said that their clinical program show no signs of slowing down. This is good. I think a lot of people weren't concerned in general all biotech virus. It really does get out of hand and trying about SARS cove to it could really interfere with regular clinical trials. Say Half the patients get the virus and have to undergo treatment for flu. That's not ideal when you're trying to just look at eight control and test groups so anyway related to cassava. Apparently their clinical programs are not slowing down and their fees to be trial completed patient enrollment as well as dosing and this is as a march twenty twenty and they mentioned that there were no safety issues found a good thing and then they also said that the company expects to announce top line results approximately mid year twenty twenty and then they also announced that they're going to initiate a one year open label study of the drug. So if this happens to not work out you know. There is a chance that the drug could affect patients in one year's time in case the Twentieth Day treatment isn't quite enough so the details of the trial. Definitely check out my older video on that. I I took a position in the fives that believe in. I think the companies now trading in the threes so I might add a little bit to the position because I did only start scaling in and really looking forward to seeing this readout here in mid twenty twenty because if it is positive the stock it increased substantially so. That's what I'm betting on here. So let's move on. Dvd TECHNOLOGY TICKER SYMBOL DVD. There a allergy company that is kind of competitor to immune even though some people would not consider them necessarily competitors because one obviously is much less effective than the other so the issue with DVD. Tea Is that their skin patch vice skin product. It is less effective than amiens. Oral immunotherapy of the benefit of that is that there are significantly fewer side effects but the issue is the FDA really wants to see that there is efficacy benefit to patients taking this drug or this therapy in order to improve the product. So we saw that Amien got FDA APPROVAL. Finally and that was nice to see and the concerns. There were that the product does have some side effects associated with it. D- On the other hand does not have many side effects but they do happen to have a lack of advocacy so what happened is the FDA identified questions regarding the efficacy of its biologics license application for vice skin peanut in patients with peanut allergy as a result the allergenic. Products Advisory Committee a PAC meeting to discuss. The bialy will no longer take place as previously scheduled so this led to a big drop in the stock and DVD's struggled off and on dealing with the FDA that's manufacturing issues last year. Maybe year more than that. I don't quite remember but I am concerned. This and I don't think it's worth buying the dip. Necessarily if they're able to show efficacy. It's going to be a real problem now. They do have some data coming out soon. That could show. That product does have more efficacy than their other. Trials showed. So if you're looking for a high risk play could do that. I am interested in space. This oral or skin related allergy desensitization. Keeping my both companies and they have taken a big hit in this recent downturn. We've had someone beekeeping my out on them all right. The next company I want to touch on is Viking Therapeutics. And it's been a long time since I talked about them. They are a company that has been Kinda slow too bad but they might have the best in class drug for Nash. It's a thyroid. Receptor Beta agonists. That does really well in lowering liver fat. So the news that we got is that their board is authorized a stock repurchase program whereby the company can repurchase up to fifty million dollars in stock over two years and this came as the market was really coming down. And I'm Kinda surprised because oftentimes these small biotech companies really struggled to raise cash because stock prices so depressed as it's being sold off for some reason. Viking has decided that it's more important for them to kind of artificially increase the stock price by doing a share buyback so as of December twentieth nineteen. They had two hundred fifty seven point six million dollars in cash. They are presenting data from their twenty eighteen trials at conferences which seems like kind of a waste of resources to me and we've really seen the data digested. I don't know what they think they're gonNA get by presenting that data. It's one thing to kind of present the updated data. But we don't really have much of that so for me. This is kind of a strange move and I would much rather than us that fifty million dollars towards anything else that would either increase the likelihood of their pipeline candidates being developed. Or you know hiring people that are good at developing Nash candidates but instead they're just buying back stock so this is not a very encouraging. Move to me. We're we're still in the midst of this case to be trial and we're waiting for that data but one thing. I wanted to notice that I looked at the clinical trials dot gov symbol for for their trial and it looks like the primary outcome is actually twelve week. Mri Data and analyzing liber fat content. The trial started in November twenty nineteen. So this actually a chance that we could see this data in the next six months or so at least before the under twenty twenty. So I'm Kinda keep in mind that and for that reason. I'm not selling any of the Stock. I have even taken quite a hit in the position. The secondary endpoint for this trial is fifty two week resolution of CFO hepatitis. The histology that's the actual biopsy of liver where they're actually going to be able to score it and evaluate. You know whether or not Nash has been resolved to some capacity given the metrics that the FDA wants them to look at but the endpoint. We're going to see. Is this twelve week. Mri data deliver fat content. And we can be pretty confident. That liver fat is going to go down. The patients in this trial are biopsy confirmed. Nash patients so the Bar is raised a little bit higher than their face to a trial. That was just done using. Nfl D. patients which is a milder form. Before you get to Nash Fatty Liver Disease Problems. So that's where Viking the last company. I WanNa talk to you before we get to. Our highlighted story is excellent therapeutics and we heard that they are accelerating the trial completion for a excess zero five typo there in Alzheimer's Disease Agitation to Q. Two rather than Q. Three Twenty Twenty. I hadn't really talked about the disease agitation trial because I think it's their lesser important one. I'm much more excited about the treatment resistant. Depression read out. That should be happening in the next week or so. And there's also going to be read out for x zero seven in migraine. Those are going to be really big moves for the stock and now we can just add another one in Q. Two we're going to see this Alzheimer's Disease Agitation. Xm Is the ticket for axiom. It's been all over the place throughout this whole downturn in the market and I have taken another position or a kind of double down with what I had because I kind of bought it at the top but I do think that they have a good chance of seeing a positive outlook in t already resistant depression and if it is positive. I think it'll be a big mover for the stock because physicians really struggled to treat already so this would be huge for them. So that's kind of where we're at with axiom and I'm looking forward to the date in the next little
Is Ibuprofen Really Risky for Coronavirus Patients?

Addicted To Sugar? This Doctor Says It's 'The New Tobacco'
"Food there's a teaspoon of sugar and every table spoon of ketchup our next guest says on food is been adulterated poisoned and he's not kidding he says sugar plays a central role in health problems including an epidemic of obesity in infants as young as six months that it's as dangerous as smoking or abuse of alcohol and if you doing The New York Times seven day sugar challenge they say even grapes and bananas have too much sugar Dr Robert listing is professor of pediatric and technology at the university of California San Francisco Dr rod of people no sugar is in health food why is it so dangerous well so people think that sugar is just empty calories and they think well you get some discretionary calories during the day so why can't they be sugar well if sugar we're just calories then they'd be right except they're wrong because different calories in foods are burned and of the absorb digestive metabolized in different ways and do different things and contribute to different diseases so I just want underscore what you said because the rule has always been calories in calories out you've got to burn it off somewhere in the middle and you are saying again that is not true what do sugar calories do right so why are sugar calories so different well they're different for three reasons the first is when sugar is absorbed it goes to the liver and the liver gets overwhelmed because it has a limited capacity to metabolize it just like it has a limited capacity metabolize alcohol just like it has a limited capacity to metabolize many of the toxins that we take in you know because your liver is the detoxification center of your body it has a limited capacity for being able to deal with sugar when you overwhelm it the liver has no choice but to take the access and turn it into a liver fat and that liver fat is the driver of virtually every chronic disease that we are now currently suffering from that's gone up in time so type two diabetes liver problems hypertension cardiovascular disease cancer dementia non alcoholic fatty liver disease poly cystic ovarian disease all being driven by liver fat in the liver fat is because of the ship and so you can basically have alcoholic fatty liver disease if your over twenty one we can of non alcoholic fatty liver disease and it doesn't make a difference because they are identical and so we have done several liver transplants in soda drinkers you know teenagers soda drinkers transplants the insidiousness of sodas and I got a you know this is why I am one of those people I pride myself I don't drink coffee but I picked up a little bit of a soda habit and it's just appalling to think of how well and it's an addiction it's not it's an addiction and you know anybody who says you know I have this horrible sweet tooth that's sugar addiction yeah so sugar is objective in the same way as alcohol in the same way as nicotine cocaine amphetamine heroin shopping gambling social media internet **** all of these stimulate the same area of the brain called the reward center the nucleus accumbens anything that causes the release of dopamine is in the extreme addictive well when you call this the coca Cola conspiracy because you say it's not by accident it's not just that there's a ton of caffeine added to this so it is that makes you then Pete pardon my in elegance they also add salt so the combination makes you thirsty ear so you drink read more exactly so they know what they're doing do you have to put salt in coke there used to be a Cola called royal crown Cola didn't have any salt in it the coca Cola knocked them out of the park but the fact is you don't have to put salt and soda so this is by design well and then fructose was sold to us as more natural sugar it's this is in you know corn and beats and and and such but as you point out one of things I do is I think does which is added to just about everything is stripped the fiber out of it so that has a longer shelf life so it has absolutely none of that benefit and why is from toes as bad as sugar so first of all sugar is two molecules down together glucose and fructose now glucose is not all that bad so great but it's not that bad however fructose because it is metabolized into that liver fat in the liver that's where the problem comes in in addition structures starts the aging reaction it causes what we call caramelization it's the reason for wrinkles is the reason for cataracts this aging reaction this Browning reaction and fructose does it seven times faster than glucose and now we have learned through work done at Joslin diabetes center that truck tows specifically inhibits the mitochondrial enzyme that causes those mitochondria to burn less well which probably is one of the reasons for the persistent weight gain and also chronic disease and the glucose doesn't do that so there are some very specific differences between these two molecules however when you consume any form of sugar whether it's sucrose which is table sugar cane sugar beet sugar the stuff you put your coffee or high fructose corn syrup or honey where maple syrup Oregon eight doesn't matter you are getting one of each molecule and soak sugar is a problem because of the fructose molecules look we we have just a couple minutes left I urge people to watch your lecture but you try a direct line from the state we're in today to the health industry and the government may nineteen eighty two we were told to cut out fats and so everybody went to cards and of course cars are filled with all the sugar that you're talking about and by the way obesity went off when we cut out fats and went to cards you go back to Nixon in the early nineteen seventies who there was a political crisis food was too expensive he directed his agriculture department to cheapen it which they did by adding a lot of these you know corn syrup products you call for hello Sir yeah you called **** toes poison and one would ask why would our own FDA regulated poison well one of our biggest exports is our food of course the food industry pushes back on the your claims in the claims of others but people know what they can see with their own eyes they don't feel well they see their children are overweight a lot of people our age are doing things like The New York Times seven day sugar challenge trying to cut back the first day you know sugar at breakfast how would you help people do this given that it is so addictive and it is so everywhere right so I will be very honest with you we will not solve this problem until the food industry solves it for us and they have no interest in doing so because this is their gravy train this is their job or this is how they went from one percent gross profit margin two five percent gross profit margin in the span of three decades this is their livelihood and they're not gonna do anything they don't have to do and unfortunately the governments in bed with them because they're making fifty six billion dollars a year off export tariffs off our food so the only way we are going to fix this problem is when there are more votes than dollars and right now we're just beginning to you know get some traction in the general public for this issue of food having said that people need to understand what the problem is they don't have to understand the difference between processed food and real food and the difference is processed food is high sugar low fiber hi sugar for palatability low fiber for shelf life real food is low sugar high fiber real food works processed food doesn't process food kills because of these issues and we could repeat could fix this tomorrow if we want to ship the problem is because sugar is addictive people don't want to he one of the saddest things in your lecture is you talk about children who have the serious health issues now that are traced to the juices that they're given and these are low income children the juices come to them to the government wick program exactly right it's going to be tough for you to see those children impossible it's you know breaks your heart you know the fact of matter is these kids are victims and we know who the perpetrators are and the fact is you know the the parents don't understand and so it promulgates itself you know the fact is what mothers eight during pregnancy ultimately impact on the number of fat cells children born wish and those vessels wanna get filled so these kids didn't have a chance even before they were born never mind afterwards I mean how do you blame a six month old for obesity in fact the matter is we have a problem and we have to address it and no one
Americans Are Dying Younger
"Inching Christians had a reputation for running toward the plague. Not Away from it today. There's a new plague. That demands are responsible for the Colson Center. I'm John Stonestreet. This is break. Point between nineteen fifty nine and two thousand sixteen life expectancy in the US rose from sixty nine point. Nine years to seventy eight point nine years. Most people know that. But did you know that since then it's reverse course. A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Paints a portrait of a society in deep trouble for the third year in a row now the average life expectancy in the. US has declined the last time. American life expectancy CONSI declined three years in a row war one and the Spanish flu pandemic killed six hundred. Seventy five thousand Americans. Now percentage wise that would be the same as losing two and a half million Americans today of course in the early nineteen hundreds there were no antibiotics viruses. Were unknown. Never mind antiviral all drugs. The germ theory of disease only recently been widely accepted in the US in the kind of public health and sanitation measures that we now take for granted. We're we're still in their infancy and today the. US spends a far larger share of its GDP on health care than any other nation yet. Other wealthy nations are not experiencing the same reversal in life expectancy in fact people in some less wealthy nations like Costa Rica have significantly longer life expectancies expectancies than Americans. So whatever is causing Americans to die younger and younger has nothing at all to do with medical science or technology as a recent Washington. Post article describes the causes behind. This dramatic shift. Are things like suicide. Drug overdoses liver disease and dozens of other causes. These causes are summed. Up in a phrase deaths from despair that was coined by researchers and case and Angus Deaton and other words we are facing an epidemic Amac of young people giving up on life sometimes before it ever really even starts for them as a public health expert told the Post people are feeling worse about themselves and in their futures at leading them to do things that are self destructive and not promoting health was the study shows. They're giving up a younger and younger age. The same hopelessness US leading to the uptick and deaths from despair is also driving what I call acts of desperation that we also see in our culture in this category add put acts of mass violence or abuse in the increasing number of young people willing to self mutilate in a pursuit for their identity. This sad story brings to mind Matthew Nine thirty six when Jesus saw the crowds. He had compassion for them because they were harassed and helpless like sheep without a shepherd. The Greek word that it is here translated compassion describes visceral reaction not a mere sentiment. In other words it's like Jesus felt this one in the gut. His response to their plight was to tell his disciples pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers in to his harvest starting with themselves. Our current opinion of dying young should elicit a similar response from us as Chuck. Wholesome like to say it's time for the church to be the church like our Lord? We must see the harassed Aston Helpless around us. We must feel they're suffering as if it were our own and we must pray that God would show us how he'd have US respond. If as Paul told the Athenians got his determine the time and place where we live we cannot be spectators in this cultural moment to the unfolding tragedies around us God God has placed us here to act A. This doesn't mean we'll solve the problem anymore than those who ran toward the plague in ancient Rome could stop it. The restoration of all things will only be complete when Christ returns and glory but we can offer a preview of that restoration. Here now. That's what we and only only we have to offer the world if we can't bring ourselves to do this and something else is terribly wrong. This time with us
"liver disease" Discussed on Diet Science
"Is not the result of drinking alcohol. It's yeah or hepatitis. Hepatitis is another. It's a virus. Iris that can affect the liver so so now now. Non Alcoholic Fatty liver. Diseases is more prominent now than any of those other your liver conditions. I know so this is a scary thing right. Yeah Yeah and basically What it is is it's a fatty liver and non alcoholic fatty liver disease? It's kind of an umbrella. Term for a spectrum of different chronic liver conditions conditions. And basically what it is. It's it's when the there's an excessive accumulation of fat in the cells of the liver and and the reason why the term non alcoholic fatty liver disease is used is because it's happening people who do not consume alcohol. It says it's it's the exact same type of disease as psoriasis of the liver which is caused by excessive alcohol consumption except it's happening and people who don't drink drink alcohol such as children. Oh my so. So why is that happening right. What so what what? The science is showing. Is that sugar and specifically fructose and it could even come from refined carbohydrates being broken down into sugar in the body that when there's a an excessive amount of sugar to deal with the liver the the main one of the main roles of the liver aside from detoxifying vying everything that comes through our bloodstream. Another one of its main roles is to Deal with sugar like you know. We're either the liver is either going to send that sugar out to the rest of the cells in the body for them to use for energy. Because that's what mainly mainly what sugar or what we call glucose for if there's an ex more glucose that can be used for energy at any one time that glucose circulates back to the liver and the liver Does one of two things with it. It can convert it into a compound called glycogen which is a way to store the glucose for short term and then be able to bring it out again and use it for energy but then when there's even when when glycogen storage is full in it's not it's a limited capacity so can only hold so much when it's full. The rest of the glucose has to get converted into fat And oftentimes you know some of that. Fat goes to other parts of the body to the other fat cells everywhere in every other part of the body however a lot of it. Kinda in a stays and accumulates in the cells of the liver and then what happens is y it creates injury to the liver. Cells is because it starts starts to kind of crowd out and literally choke the cells of the liver to death o'malley Creating something called. He Paddock necrosis process which is basically death of liver cells. Oh Mine and that's what. Psoriasis is. When the cells deliver start dying So so it's a pretty serious thing and we know it's linked now to high-fructose Corn Syrup consumption and high carbohydrate consumption especially refined carbohydrate One thing to note route is that fructose is a different kind of Simple sugar in the liver. It gets converted into glucose so it's just another form. I'm of sugar. It's and in the liver. It's you know it's got up it. Fructose goes directly to the liver. So it's like an even more of an insult rather than glucose host going to deliver first and then all the cells for energy. Fructose goes to deliver directly first and then gets dealt with their first. It doesn't go out the rest of the cells so so taxing on those very taxing. Yeah it's a little bit of fructose is okay. It's you know it's kind of the body's can the design to deal with that but when it's an excessive amount it's it's toxic. It's a very big burden on the liver so that's why this is happening earnings so Now one of the things that were were seeing. Is You know basically what happens is there's a couple of things sometimes sometimes the When fatty liver and his is in it's kind of earlier stages and the fats? Just kind of accumulating in the liver and it's not causing damage yet yet That's the early stage and we kind of say that that sort of more like the you know there's no real like cirrhosis happening in the liver and you can deal with it at that earlier stage it can. We can take dietary measures them. We can intervene. Yeah exercise and that type of thing when it starts progressing going into the more serious form of cirrhosis then it is called has a different name. It's called non-alcoholic St Outta Hepatitis Addis or NASA H Nash And in that sit in that situation the accumulation of fat causes severe inflammation that damages the liver cells and that's what leads to the scarring And impairing liver function so now your liver you know. It does a lot of things one of of the biggest things as I mentioned that it does it it. It's a filter and it a it creates a lot of enzymes to help us detoxify everything even even even caffeine. You know when you drink a cup of coffee tea or chocolate or whatever. There's caffeine in their caffeine has to be broken down in the liver to to in order to kind of remove it from the body So something as simple as that versus something like the pollution that you're exposed to Medicare you take the all get dealt with in the liver to break them down into nontoxic Basically metabolites that are flushed out of the body. Normally that's the normal situation when the liver is Impaired in any way then those things happen and then you have build up of toxicity in the body so you become septic yes philly you die. I mean over time this can occur right from the liver not being able to do what. It's exactly so so to to think that this is happening in children now is it. It's hard to to consider that this is what's going on so So order so so. What are some things that we can do to remedy some of this so So one of the you know in in addition to removing refined find carbohydrates from your diet increasing vegetable and fruit intake There's an a an ancient herb called milk thistle That has been used for thousands of years to treat liver disorders anything from Hepatitis to just overall general liver healing and cleansing so It's a very liver supportive herb And it's really interesting because it has compounds in that that can literally like kind of like regenerate the the healing of the cells in the liver so if there's damage that's not too far gone It can help it in fact it has even been shown in with people. Who are alcoholics? Even those who are on a waiting list for a liver transplant ends plant or people who have hepatitis that it exp- first of all taking milks us. All in supplement form can extend their life Extend their ability to wait for that liver transplant. And then once the liver transplant is done. It also extends their life expectancy see for after the transplant. So it's a pretty amazing herb. So so it's so it's so it's affective when you're even far along exactly exactly but it's also I trust effective even when you're just stir early on in fact it'd be better to get it going early on rather than late or in the the advanced stage right. So so what is it you know. What is milk this all? So it's IT'S A. It's actually an herb. That's native to the regions of the Mediterranean. And like like I mentioned it's been used for over two thousand years for its liver healing properties. We now have more than three hundred studies showing that active ingredient which is called Suli. Marin can protect the liver cells from poisonous effects of alcohol and other toxic chemicals. And so what it does is it inhibits the formation a free radicals that free radicals are very you know like I call them angry molecules. They've lost one of their electrons and they're just trying to get one back but they go in. They like Jahnke electrons off of healthy cells which then create damage to the cells. And of course you can kill the cell right so it prevents that from happening. it helps so not only does the SEALY. Marin have its own antioxidants which helped prevent influ Free radical damage but Celia Marin also helps the body make its own one of the most powerful antioxidants that we make already ready within. Our body called Glutathione so so not only to Celia Marin provide some of its own antioxidants helps the body make more glutathione which is our our own endogenous antioxidant. So it's Kinda got like this double whammy effect going on to fight against free radical damage to the liver So that's why it's worked so well Now how how would we take this rate. And by the way there's been plenty of studies showing the the The effect of Silly Marin on liver healing so How do we take it where we typically you know? Sometimes you could go into the health food store and you might see a a box of tea bags at say milk this. Ot don't use that for trying to heal the liver. It's great herbal tea. Just on its own but not not for liver healing because the active ingredient in milk the sole sealey. Marin is not water soluble so you can extract it from the herb. You're just using water. It has it can only. It's it's a type of herb. That can only be extracted with alcohol and this might seem a little counter. Intuitive have since it's supposed to help prevent alcohol damage in the body but what the way they do it is they use an alcohol to extract the compound out of of the herb. Then they evaporate off the alcohol and what you have left us like a dry powder of just the active component there and then that can be put in capsules else so it's called a milk thistle extract. Okay so you can get a water based so it's really interesting once you have it out of the milk thistle now now you can extract it with alcohol you dry off the alcohol and now you could actually put that dried powder in some water and now you can do do that so sometimes you haven't water-based tincture. You can also get an alcohol based tincture or you can just get a dried Silly Marin in in a capsule form and then you take it that way so sometimes I tell sal people if you want to just drink it. As a t get a water based tincture and add some drops of the of the milk thistle extract into the water and drink that way or take it in a capsule form so The studies studies. Show that The the suggested dose the one that works really well against liver damage is about two hundred to four hundred milligrams of Sealy Marin per day. So you when you go to get an A.. Milk thistle extract supplement or a tincture. You'RE GONNA follow the directions of tell you how much is in a dosage and make sure that you're getting somewhere between two hundred and four hundred. They say to start off on the low end of two hundred and then work your way up to four hundred. So now there's there's just a couple of cautions on this They say that milk thistle is safe in the recommended dosage But if you're taking any kind of blood sugar. Lowering medications like diabetes medications. You may want to Be careful because Milk thistle can also lower blood sugar levels. It's known to be it good for that as well So it might put your blood sugar levels too low if you're on the medication so you need to check with your doctor and make sure with all of that and then and And then of course if you're pregnant you should consult your doctor to before trying any milk thistle but I think it's a really it's like one of the most powerful things is that you can do for your liver. Wow so we'll have a link to what you recommend US exactly. Okay very good..
Combatting Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
"Alcoholic Fatty liver. Diseases is more prominent now than any of those other your liver conditions. I know so this is a scary thing right.

Hepatitis A becomes health emergency in Florida
"One thing that has definitely been making news is this site is a outbreak and you know it well it made a little bit of news last year and then and you don't hear much about it because that was all about the measles and mumps outbreak you know that really was expected to be able to talk about the mumps outbreak yet here we are Florida has declared a public health emergency over its ballooning hepatitis eight cases now I bring this up even though we're gonna be talking more about marijuana a little bit later in the show but appetite is eight could be spread hi poorer hygienic practices poor hygiene practices in fast food and restaurants also in homeless populations etcetera and so here we have Philadelphia has declared a public health emergency Philadelphia fairly is out of a hundred fifty four cases I wait to see the numbers coming in from from Florida but the numbers are staggering and I have a does a originally started in two thousand sixteen there was the I think the most recent outbreak started then they said it was over but cases can't kept on surfacing it started in southern California they believe it happened during in some of the homeless populations after bags were one theory is after plastic bags were banned in California the homeless people will be going through the garbage and using those bags to partake in and so they would just can't use a plastic bag whatever so without plastic bags there's not a lot of and there's not a lot of bathrooms and things like that the homeless people have easy access to there was a widespread spread we found out that in southern California they had to actually start passing out backs it's almost populations of those other things so Martin and Brevard counties in Florida Armonk seventeen better call critically impacted by the hepatitis a virus scored using today they're the main concern for Florida public health officials and the reason the state Surgeon General declared a public health emergency former Surgeon General doctor Scott Riske's said Friday he believes the declaration will make people take the matter more seriously the number of people diagnosed of Florida in Florida keeps increases of right now there's ten cases per hundred thousand people and the fifteen counties affected our citrus blades Hernando Hillsborough lake liberty manatee Merion okay chill the orange Pasco Pinellas county some for Taylor the list and right now just across their state they have two thousand hepatitis eight cases and we talked about hepatitis A. why would be a public health emergency well there's two reasons one is hepatitis A. affects the liver it's a virus that affects the liver can shut down the liver we don't see as many cases of death and cancer with hepatitis a like you would with PNC but still it could cause vomiting jaundice liver failure hepatitis a is nothing to play around with symptoms could be nausea vomiting diarrhea abdominal cramps yellowing of the skin because as the liver enzymes get killed and inflame the destroyed the break up and their liver enzymes you know it us to creep into the blood and then your liver supposed to be making vile vile helps break down food and fats well if your liver is not working then and the bile doesn't have a nice smooth path to do what it needs to do you start getting build up of those components and I use for getting this yellowish look to use so whatever your friend looks yellow in a look at the whites of their eyes look at the palms of their hands if they have a yellow glow they could have liver disease not necessarily hepatitis but liver disease so we don't mess around with that but what I hear of these public health emergencies right you can't get hepatitis a technically by kissing somebody or sitting next to them on a bus you will have to be exposed to their you know you have to be exposed to something they you know might have had on their hands for the bath and apologize but if you guys are eating breakfast reading lunch or dinner but these are things that you know we worry about with restaurants etcetera and and ratings and so what worries me is if there is a public health emergency is it because Hey people are watching their hands and it's just not enough V. people are unclean see we have some real have fast hero protocols in restaurants or D. we have homeless populations that are growing and not you know being treated contains taken care of and you know having access to healthy people that and getting them second sport in it that way not all the cases are an almost baby patients so when we start getting outbreaks of clusters we start having more brewing more ability for a virus to mutate and so I you know I agree with the state save okay without a clamp down you know we gotta start you know allocated funds and we need to start educating the public now I notice a lot of you guys don't watch chance you'll shake hands he won't wash hands you know glasses at a restaurant I went out to eat was great restaurant you know do I examine the glass to see if I see somebody else's lipstick on their no they don't do I check to see if the staff in the back or scratching you know some of the people most protected against these diseases are those of us who worked in a restaurant I hate to say that because you know we've seen a lot we see what people have done and I don't want to all of us become obsessive compulsive about you're not touching anything anybody else's touched we need to be exposed to other pathogens to gain our immunity but there's a lot of crappy things
"liver disease" Discussed on This Week in Science
"Liver disease including the possibility of bypassing the need for liver transplants. Wouldn't that be great great. Wouldn't that be amazing. No drink up. Everyone know take where was the where was the Hydra study out of the Hydra study is out of U._C.. Davis Giuliano Developmental Developmental Biologist at U._C.. Davis she's got a nickname for her. I met her once before. It's pots Juliana. She's working on immortality mortell. Yes the immortality and the Hydros yes final couple quick studies. There is a crisper test underway. Hey we've talked about crisper before editing cells and whatnot well researchers at Edita's which is a private company. They have become a begun on a clinical trial to study the use of crisper not in cells outside the body but in Vivo that means in in the eyes of humans to see if they can <hes> treat an inherited form of blindness that's called by caused by a single point mutation in this up to ninety gene. We will see where it goes. This is crisper editing in in living humans. It's going to be happening and also Hey Blair. This one is just for you for me. Yes just for you. <hes> researchers researchers out of U._C.. Berkeley have created the world's worlds very first robotic cockroach they have taken the the wonderful speed and ability of cockroaches to evade predators their flexibility and you know if you've ever tried smashing a cockroach Kinda hard they have taken this to heart in their design of a new very tiny robot that that can take the weight of a human body that you can step on this robot and it'll keep on moving it will take up to about sixty kilograms which is about a million times its own body weight so it's <hes> able all to withstand quite high pressure. It's fast it can run at twenty body lengths per second which is almost as fast as a real cockroach in it can carry a peanut. I love it. Finally I have a peanut delivery system for when you know it's like it's slate. You don't want to get out of the bad you're on the couch but you really need a peanut last just one half of one even right just one little peanut peanut for you but it's a really interesting and very simple design. It's a thin strip of p azo electric material which you run an electric charge through which causes a contraction and expansion of that material that makes the robot jump forward leapfrogging as they say <hes> us. Oh this robot just basically vibrates jumping on its little feet <hes> moving forward they think <hes> if they are able to put a the sensors on it and maybe even add a battery so itself powered right now. They're not self powered that it could <hes> maneuver in very small spaces where other robots cannot go so they're. They're these little toys that I've used to talk to kids about solar power that are they look like little crickets and they have a little solar cell on their back and they basically hop around like that so I yeah they could just put a little solar panel panel on there. I feel like right if solar solar panel if they are in a in an area where there's light going to be in dark I guess Congress they are actually out in sunlight so trying to find analogous thing right little little cockroach pot yes anyway. This is the the first robotic cockroach no Blair. Tell me a story yes so from cockroach to cuttlefish cuttlefish. <hes> I have a story about cuttlefish microbiomes <hes> this is the first study looking at the microbial Fabio populations on cuttlefish their digestive tract gills and skin. They tried to figure out exactly how many families evacuee area live in in a cuttlefish by comparison humans have hundreds in the gut alone but the cuttlefish has to in what way what no two families have bacteria on their whole body that sounds how that doesn't sound wound right yeah..
More Flesh-Eating Bacteria Cases in the Gulf of Mexico and Elsewhere Are Likely Because of Climate Change
"Necrotizing fasciitis flesh eating bacteria is on the rise as a record amount of Americans have contracted the infection this summer at least nine Americans of reported that they've had the rare disease which is also because three deaths in recent weeks KCBS to Scotland Terry spoke with doctor mark sh lice who is the co director of the infection and immunity research program at the university of Minnesota talk to us a little bit about this infection I mean the what's it all about and then have people contracted yes so necrotizing fasciitis it translates into deaths of the tissue in the fast show the fashion of being the layer between the skin and the muscle and so we've known about necrotizing fasciitis of course for a long time and a variety of different bacteria can cause that most famously perhaps strapless group they stripped the plain old strip that causes strep throat what we've seen this summer now is the emergence of an another bacteria called Vibrio bonus because this is a bacteria that lives in brackish water in estuaries and other high salt water environments and is as you pointed out in your intro it's resulted in a lot of serious infections and a number of death on eastern seaboard well you know when I think of strap I think of children as well as this you know infected any children not yet for reasons we don't understand completely bit brio ballistic tests is an infection that is more common in adults over the age of forty more common in men than women and so far all of the victims have largely been older man and it also has a predilection for causing problems in people who have other chronic underlying diseases like diabetes liver disease it can be contracted by actually being in the water he can get it through your skin or it can be contracted by eating contaminated seafood most notoriously shellfish and so in fact it's the most common infection that causes deaths in the United States from contaminated ceases so what's a you know what's the precautions that we can take you know you know what was also interesting to me is are there certain regions of the country that you that are more susceptible to this yes this bacteria first really hit the landscape in a big way after hurricane Katrina when the flooding in New Orleans predispose people who were waiting in brackish water with high salt content to develop this infection largely it's an infection of the southeastern United States and coast but what we've seen is the movement of the bacteria this year up the eastern seaboard up in the Chesapeake Bay and into Delaware Bay and there's been a number of cases in New Jersey which was quite surprising because it had formerly been thought that the water was simply too cold there to support the growth of the bacteria it's rare but I think the the common sense advice would be on the eastern seaboard regions to not go into brackish water bottle in the water if you have cuts scrapes or other kinds of rashes on your skin and it's probably safe precaution for anyone who's been in the water to wash with soap and water after leaving the water and I think we're going to see more of this because of man made global climate change which is now created the environment that allows the bacteria to flourish in regions of further north that was doctor mark sh

Lord gives us some findings though, this is a trend that help.

When you start to look at it to other countries where their life expectancy on average is eighty one years old and above. I see.

And I think we all know what a Colby opioid epidemic has taken in the US and into. Seventeen seventy two thousand people died of a drug overdose. So that is one of the main drivers at bringing expectancy it's really killing off people between the age of twenty five to thirty four.

"We transplant and that's their main mission is to figure things like that out for liver transplants. They've been trying to optimize the patients dying from liver disease on wait lists. So they would want the sickest patients on the list to get those organs. Currently they're looking at geographic disparities for that. And trying to optimize that for kidneys. They would like for kidneys that have the potential to last for decades to go into recipients that will as well as they've recently changed their allocation to make that more suitable for pancreas transplants sits, you know, more based on wait time than anything else, which I've always thought was a very fair system. But the more I do this the more I realized that certain patients have urgent need. And certainly if somebody comes in, and they immediately need an organ transplant. We do have systems to give them high priority on the list. I mean, it seems like something I'm sure ethical ethicists have been involved in because it just seems like one of those issues where it's like there's no perfect answer that they have to find some kind of ordering system, but it's going. To make somebody upset at that's a very common ethical dilemma as you have one Oregon who do you put it in writing? And sometimes you do get into them locally when you're actually looking at the patients and trying to decide what you're gonna do with an Oregon you have two people to qualify. Usually, the easiest thing is to default to the whatever the list is because so much thought has gone into the allocation system, can you split a pancreas or is that a one to one you can and it has been done. Currently the number of pancreas transplants were doing in the country have been dwindling there still are a lot of them being performed the numbers have gone up in the last couple of years. But if you look at the trend over the last decade and a half the numbers have gone down substantially, which means from my perspective. If there's patients on the list, they're likely going to get transplanted within a reasonable period of time as probably not worth the extra technical, exercise and potential complications. Splitting one in half. Why isn't left the number's been going down? We don't have a very good reason. I think that the quality of the donors have certainly changed. Some of it is practice. I think you know, Pancras trans. Transplants is complicated. Takes an awful lot of effort to get it. Right. So I think that we have become a little bit conservative on the choices. We're making in the organs will accept I think we're listing fewer patients some of it has to be the effective better control for diabetes. So certainly with pump technologies in continuous Commodores, and, you know, the potential for those to to communicate. There are probably fewer patients that are getting towards renal failure. From this fewer patients that have the life threatening diabetes complications, we are talking about. But it's really hard to put a finger on which exactly caused all this. When we weighed the long term potential complications from your suppression versus type one diabetes. I mean, I clearly know the complications that type one diabetes can actually feel like I know some of the complications immunosuppression. But it's odd. I'm not liking my head. I'm like would would would immunosuppression be worse is it it certainly can be most patients tolerate immunosuppression very well, or I don't think we would do this. But the main toxic. The cities of the immuno suppression are that they affect kidney function, which is sort of ironic that we're doing a kidney transplant and put him on an effort, doc medication. But that's why they have to have their levels monitored for years, some of the minero toxic, but much more importantly as the opportunistic infections and cancers..
