"lupus" Discussed on Coping With Chronic Physical and/or Mental Health Challenges: Helpful Tips & Bandages
"When you read a statement, read it very carefully. I noticed that a lot of statements don't claim to cure something, they'll just say it helped somebody, or it helped something. And that's a lot different than saying it cured something, but they'll imply it. So a lot of people are taking something thinking, oh, this is going to cure me. When saying that somebody that took this was helped is a big difference. For example, if someone takes a pill and said, hey, somebody with lupus took this and they felt better. That's a lot different than saying. This pill is going to cure lupus. In one situation, someone with lupus just may have happened to have felt better at the time. And of course, the other one is probably a false statement that could lead to a lawsuit. And so that's why they're usually very careful on how they state something. So try to watch those statements and that will get rid of a lot of products that you probably can avoid just by that. However, what's getting orders, there's a lot more companies that are dissed, making just downright faults claims. And because they are no longer going to make enough money before they get stopped. They may even believe in their product, but they haven't had a proven yet, and normally you can't make statements until you've proven it. But, for example, there was a product where someone claimed that it would boost your immunity. You wouldn't get sick. You can go on airplanes and so forth and you'll be fine. And that just wasn't true. They had some things that might boost your immune system a little bit, but to make the claims that they were claiming the advertising division of business bureaus at nope, you shouldn't be making those kind of claims and they had a dial it back..
Dr. Peter McCullough: Spike Proteins by Vaccines Could Be an Issue
"For a guy like me who's recently hopefully recovered from lymphoma I'm in remission now And my wife was an autoimmune disorder herself and lupus If that turns out to be the case and I understand some preliminary study you know you were very cautious in your approach to it as well But if it turns out that we are producing spike proteins long term What could that mean for people with autoimmune difficulties and people with various types of cancers blood cancers and immune system cancers I think it's going to be a matter of degree If it's one or two shots and it's echo cells and there isn't much passage to daughter cells this thing can in a sense burn itself out or be cleared out over time Bruce Patterson who leaves a company called Intel DX doing terrific work is formally professor at northwestern and Stanford He's actually shown in the respiratory illness that the spike protein is in the body a long time to end but up to 15 months in CD 16 positive monocytes And I did have him on my show and I asked him about what has he seen in vaccinated people And in fact he does have samples He's seen both the S one and the S two segment of the spike protein in humans after vaccination as long as he's observed them So for a month I asked him I said can you predict how long it's in the body He said probably over a year SARS CoV-2 the virus And then the spike protein installed in the body with vaccination It has a persistence in the body That's the reason why people feel bad There's a long COVID syndrome And I estimate is there any other infection that's similar to this He said yeah there is I said what is it He said Lyme disease Lyme disease does an install of the organism called borrelia bardia It takes forever to clear out lime That's the reason why people get this post lime syndrome So I think people who are immune deficient people with lymphoma they've had chemotherapy or radiation or they have other autoimmune illnesses This could be a
Noah Was a Conspiracy Theorist Until It Rained. Dr. Vladimir Zelenko a Conspiracy Realist
"And so doctor talk a little bit about how you've had this correct hypothesis from nearly the very beginning. And you've now seen the vaccine and some of its failures. You've seen all of this kind of unfold. How are you processing this? It must be incredibly frustrating for you, especially as you see what's happening in Israel here in the United States because as you say you've treated 7000 patients. It's incredibly liberating for me. I have to tell you that becoming aware of reality, even if it's unpleasant, but at least living in reality has therapeutic value. And not living in a lie. So I reverse engineered the worst crime in human history. And I've put the pieces together and I see the puzzle. I see the big picture. And I'm not a conspiracy theorist. I'm a conspiracy realist. There's a joke, right? No, in the Bible, was a conspiracy theorist until the grand, right? That it wasn't the theory. I'm going to use that. Wait, feel free. So it began when Cuomo murdered 20,000 nursing home residents in the state of New York. Blocked access, he issued an executive order where my patients can't get hydroxychloroquine. And it was my patients because I was the only one in the state doing it. Let me ask you a question. A drug that was used over a billion times over 65 years is FDA approved for lupus rheumatoid arthritis malaria malaria prophylaxis is given to nursing mothers is giving to pregnant women given to children. Some people live on it. Their whole lives. And all of a sudden, it's deemed dangerous, but it's all dangerous for COVID patients. It's not dangerous to pregnant women or taking it to a room to arthritis. And so he issues an order where patients can get it. Well, that really made sense to me. So I improvised I did research again. I innovated. I found the substitute for hydroxychloroquine. On the NIH server, it's funny. And if something called quercetin, and I didn't even know what it was, I just Googled it. And I see that it's over the counter. I said, oh my God, I just discovered the cure to tyranny. Because I could say listen, Charlie, screw the doctor and there are two reasons why people die from COVID. Is the moronic doctor that delays treatment? And the tyrannical government that people live under that blocks access to lifesaving medication. Besides that, there's really no reason to die from COVID. That's what the evidence shows. So all of a sudden, now I can just circle then all the regulation and just say go to the right and shop buy some corset and vitamin C, D and zinc, take it in the right way and you'll be okay. And that's incredibly liberating. I have to say, because people could reintegrate back into society and they could see the people they loved. They don't have to be isolated. Then I have to live in
Some Kaiser Permanente Employees Quit Over Vaccine Mandate
"Talked to several people. Also who are work work well who worked Past tense for the biggest hospital chain. That rhymes with the people that worked with kaiser. That have just laughed because kaiser is saying they're not going to To acquiesce they're not even going to offer. They're gonna tighten up even religious exemptions So it's it's appalling that all of these people have to leave their jobs after serving us so well but these police officer said that they will walk out if they have to get the vaccine and they're willing to do other things they're willing to mask up. They're willing to take tests but they do not want to have the vaccine common. They should be no need to give a reason. Because my buddy choice. But i'm just curious in talking to them. Is that common thread as to why they don't want to because it's experimental or is in health reasons religious. What are they saying. I you know. So based on the people that i've talked to so far. It's all the reasons that you and i have talked about on the radio for months. Now it's the fact that it just hasn't been around long enough number one number two they don't want the government going down the slippery slope and this is probably the biggest of telling us what we can do. You know. I had a friend who is a pretty close friend who has got an active case of lupus and she has not gotten the vaccine yet but she also was afraid to get the vaccine. Because she's in a flare of lupus. She thinks it's going to make her sicker. She tried to get an appointment. Ucla medical center. They would not see her to treat her lupus until she got a covert vaccine and she told them that she was afraid and that she didn't wanna do it until she was. You know well on the mend from the lupus and they would not see her just wrong. So what's the next step. Are we going to go after smoking. Are we going to go after people. I mean what what what is next. Are we not. I mean the of law enforcement and hospitals are serve people who need help not to worry about vaccine
Navigating the COVID-19 Pandemic With a Weakened Immune System
"Throughout the pandemic immuno-compromised people have faced a higher risk of getting seriously sick from cova nineteen with cases increasing in our area and the delta variant reshaping the battle against the virus. Dc calling gramlich spoke with immuno-compromised residents about how they're feeling coleen joins us now for more on her conversations. Good morning calling the morning after. So i explain why. Even after vaccination some immuno-compromised residents are still taking extra precautions. For people with compromised immune systems their bodies might produce a limited immune response to a vaccine. And they'll get less protection than relatively healthy person with a stronger immune system for example one resident. I spoke to. You has lupus and underwent a kidney transplant a few years ago and even after three doses of vaccine she hasn't developed any antibodies. She's now part of clinical study testing the effectiveness of boosters and she just got her fourth kovic shot which she's hoping gives her some protection but without getting tested for antibodies immuno-compromised. People might not know exactly how well they're vaccines protected them. So that's why the cdc's still recommends that these people continue all of the precautions that everyone else was told to follow last year. You know masking staying six feet away from other people things like that. So what are these people feeling now. With delta spreading and the increase in cases. I mean for the most part. They're terrified and you know. Also this feeling of being left behind that came up pretty frequently in my conversations. Dc lifted its mask mandate in all business restrictions in may but that made going out feel even more unsafe for some of the people i spoke to. They might go into a grocery store and be around someone. Unmasked who they don't know if they're vaccinated or not

Molecular Therapeutics Hopes to Reshape Gene Therapy
"So the first rail on a touch on today is from arena pharmaceuticals. The ticker symbol is a u. p. h. And they're sitting in a market cap. Now veron two two point one billion dollars and what we heard about a week ago is that they received fda approval for luke kindness for adult patients with active lupus nephritis and for those who haven't been following the company too long. They showed really really powerful phase three data. The stock shot up really well and then it's been kind of slowly selling off into you know around the thirteen fourteen dollar area and what we heard with this. Fda approval is the stock shot up to around twenty bucks and since then it's trading at around sixteen dollars now. I took a position around thirteen bucks and then sold most of it at around eighteen. And now i'm just sitting at around ten shares in anticipation of the future. And so we'll talk about that right now. But basically what the fda approval there are few details and one was that there was a black box warning but it was pretty much in line with cyclosporine. So it's not really anything to be concerned about. The other real benefit is that the patent protection is likely until the year twenty thirty seven so there were some concerns that the patent protection for arena in this drug was not gonna last that long and that could cut into the profits given the fact that they would lose exclusivity after a while so the other thing we heard is that arrhenius set the pricing and they said it at a price of three thousand nine hundred and fifty dollars for sixty capsules and then they estimate that the net revenue per patient per year is gonna sit at around sixty five thousand dollars so i did some quick math. Here to look at the prevalence of lupus and in general has around twenty to one hundred fifty cases per one hundred thousand people so in the united states that works out to around sixty six thousand two four hundred ninety thousand in the usa. And i know that's a pretty broad range but these are the These the publicly available stats. The corporate presentation of iranian says. That around forty percent of lupus patients have lupus nephritis so the actual problems in the kidneys that would benefit from this therapy so that brings us down to around twenty six thousand one hundred ninety eight thousand total addressable patients in the usa. So we have. Here's an estimated total potential revenue between one point seven billion to twelve point eight billion now again. That's a. It's a huge range. When there's an order of magnitude in there but at least there we get a sense of the kind of revenue. The company is going to be able to bring in sitting at around a two billion dollar market cap. It's definitely on the lower end. Even though this is the total addressable market and we know that arena isn't gonna be able to penetrate the whole thing. But i think the reason why the stock is of depressed is because of the bear narrative in regards to launch concerns so often with these smaller companies. Because they don't have an established salesforce they don't have necessarily those established relationships with either. Kol's or doctors space. It's difficult for companies that are small to really ramp up and deliver when it comes to the sales numbers so the bare narrative is saying that well they're going to really struggle with the launch therefore the company should only be expected to do the lower end of their expectation. Now on the both side. They're saying that well arena could be an emanate contender. And there's reasons to suggest that given that the risk is so low with this drug now. The data looks good and it's already fda approved so they could be being looked at by larger pharmaceutical companies. Who already have those established sales and marketing pipelines to just include this into their portfolio products. And start selling it so. I'm not sure what's going to happen. I'm going to relatively small position. I don't know how much i feel like diving in here. Given the the launch is going to be complicated. But i could miss out on a a merger acquisition deal. That could come as well. So that's really i think. Obviously it's very positive for the company and very positive for patients that are suffering with lupus nephritis but for me. I'm happy with my small position and just seeing what happens with the start with that. Let's move onto rhythm pharmaceuticals ticker symbol are ytm and they're sitting at a market cap of around one point three billion dollars and what they announced. It was positive data from semolina tied in additional emcee for our pathway deficient related. obesity 's so semolina tied was recently approved for hamas egas recessive mutant obese conditions related to pompey pcs k. One and leptin receptor so what that means. Is that patients that for this need to have a knockout in or a mutation in both copies of the gene whether it's policy pcs k. One or leptin receptor. Now what we weren't sure of is whether or not similan tide had an effect in hetero zayas patients and what this is is patients that have one functional copy of this gene so if their drugs sent. Milan could have an effect. In hetero zygote significantly expand the patient population that would qualify for treatment with this drug and with an expanded patient population. Obviously the revenues could be substantially higher than what we expect if it was only the home. Zygote
Apple, Facebook, Tesla Earnings: What We Learned
"To help us break down. The results are tech. Columnist diane gallagher. Hey dan thanks for being here be here so before we get into the nitty gritty kind of trends and challenges that define two thousand twenty companies and this past quarter in particular. And why are these results so significant. Well i think obviously when people are without jobs and drop an income that that you think that would take down the market for these kind of companies and what we're seeing though is with these with these really big tech companies. They're scale actually helps them do better in these times because they have they have so much market and they're also selling especially apple is selling things that people need in some cases need even more so. We saw big explosion of ipad sales for instance. And that's more students who are stuck at home. Do an online learning more people stuck at home. Doing work is actually driving sales. And things like pc's and tablets that weren't particularly growing a lot before the pandemic. I think some of the changes were seen in consumer behavior or kind of temporary because of this moment. And then some you know and then so maybe longer lasting you know. I think people are gonna probably be working from home more than they did before especially over the next couple of years. They'll still need equipment and services geared to that the sleep batch reports brings to in particular that what are very interesting against the backdrop of the pandemic. that's been so crippling economically in hit too many jobs and incomes apple. Tesla sell very expensive things you know at the top of their. You know tesla's probably among the more expensive cars you can buy to the classic cars that competes with you know iphones macs all. These devices are among the most expensive in their class and both companies reported a really good december. Quarter tesla swung into profitability apple. Had this record for apple sales past one hundred billion dollars for the first time ever lupus wall. Street's estimates iphone sales are really strong profits. Were record as well and so it. Really contrasts sharply with what is actually pretty dreary period for the for the entire global economy. And of course the other big issue we saw was supply chain disruptions especially early on. Is that still play here. We'll sure we saw especially on with apple because they make all their stuff in china. So and that's that's the pandemic started and so early early in early. Two thousand and twenty you know. These factories closed down. They saw a big productive hit to their production but obviously in china things recovered before they have here. So they've been able to get that back going. I you know they've essentially just smooth it out. I mean a lot of hits. They saw that way. Were were temporary. You know we've seen other issues where shortage of things like chips. The are used in cars and other factors in that has the and that's really affected pretty much companies across the board. So it's actually a great question this battery reports. Maybe even could have been even better. Had we not had those component shortages. Yeah and that's a good point breast to dive into the results themselves. And i want start with tesla early in the pandemic tesla ceo elon. Musk differentiated his company from other tech companies. You know where you can make software remotely. You'd have factories opened in order to make and deliver electric vehicles but despite that challenge tesla ended up having pretty great year. So what did we see from them this year and in these results as well yeah. We saw The delivered nearly half a million vehicles in two thousand twenty and there are actually they can now increase that by about fifty percent in the coming year and again we saw the it was her first year. I think of actually reporting profits and this is a company where the stock has been doing phenomenally. You know investors are kind of have been chewing the company on even when it has you know challenges with its business or you know spend a lot more but i think this a quarter in which this particular quarter is probably gonna help. Those have been like betting. Big on the on tesla wall street got it so the first full year profit but but still a lot of cost associated with those supply chain issues that we talked about earlier. Which weighed things down a little. You know. speaking of supply chain issues apple was also hit with them similar problems which ended up delaying the release of its new lineup of iphones. That included its first. Five g capable the benefactor results it affected but you. You almost wouldn't know it by looking at what they what they've reported this record period. The iphone launched about a month later than they normally did kind of broken apart. Their big selling point was five. G and five. G has been something that you know quite honestly you know the services are kind of hard to find still but they made these phones very attractive in their own right. A new design powerful cameras And so they. They did really well on that. We don't know apple doesn't say. How many sold anymore. They don't give unit sales anymore. But the iphone business had its best period of revenue growth in more than two years and registered record revenue for that particular business so it did really well even with the kind of leader module we saw and of course apple offers a ton of other products and services. And they've actually been pushing into services even more recently. Had that part of its business. Do that did very well. This is actually accelerated. The growth was above twenty percent in this last quarter had been kind of skating along mid teens. You know from last several in the. That's something that they've been. They've been putting a lot into that. You know there they now have a streaming tv service. They have a fitness type service that we compete with companies like pelivan a little bit. They're putting more into music and games And for them. This is important because not only not only kind of spreads out their their business diversity in they're not relying so much on hardware sales but services carry much higher profit margins and we saw that this was this was the highest profit margins. They've reported in more than five years that they reported for the december quarter so clearly paying off for them and just finally. We also heard from facebook yesterday. And unlike these other companies facebook's products are completely digital social media advertising. It seems like that would be a benefit as remote. Communications really became our only way of communicating in the past year. It was and it was. It was a good period for them to they continued add users. They they're ad. Revenue exceeded their growth their exceeded wall street's expectations facebook. You know there are always a bit cautious when they look ahead. They're warning about things like some of these changes apple is putting into its operating system. I make it harder to track do attraction for users and they've been talking about that for a while but the you know the business even with all the all the problems. Facebook has had in terms of its public image. Privacy politics this is essentially an advertising machine that continues to just print money every quarter. You mentioned those challenges and there have been some pretty big ones for facebook especially on the regulatory front. What have they been facing. And what kind of impact that had. Well i mean they're they're facing you know like by some of the other. Big tech companies are facing serious questions about the power they have as a platform and whether they have too much. Whether they're too big. I think they're probably at the forefront google are facing actual like lawsuits and pressure. There's people in the government that think. Facebook should break up longer own instagram. Or what's app that that's make made them too powerful. We don't know how how that's all going to play out. Obviously the company will fight that very hard. So it's hard to know how that'll end up. But i think they have especially this coming year. Now that we're kind of past the election into a new administration. I think they'll probably see a lot more challenges. In that sense i think two thousand twenty one for facebook is going to be very challenging. In that sense. I don't know if it'll start registering to the actual business to the advertising revenues they generate and usage. And all that. But it's definitely going to create even more of those kind of headline challenges we've seen gotta info just taking a step back here. At the beginning of this conversation we talked about what a wild year this has been because of the pandemic for tack taken together. What all these results tell us about. How tech fared and what challenges lay ahead. Well i think. I think the strong results actually make their challenges. Maybe a little even more harsh because what we're seeing is that even in the midst of something that's been a pandemic so crippling is that these big companies do really really. Well i if they're going to make an argument that no we're not we're not so powerful as you say we are every quarter we get this reminder that no they're you know they're actually very very strong very powerful can grow their business when so many others can't i can make record profits when others can't so i think i think in a way. The strong financial results will really pleased investors but also makes the company's jobs harder to convince regulators and lawmakers that they're not a threat they are deemed to be right. Now i think that conversations going to really pick up in the coming year all. That's our tech columnist. Ian gallagher things much for joining my
Warner Bros.' Wonka prequel gets 2023 release date
"Wonka Prequel. Yeah, training yesterday. Tell me what is the prequel mean? I'm so comes before the movies that we know that this would be the story before Esso Warner Brothers is moving ahead with the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory prequel. It's just called Walker. At this point. The plot details have been kind of kept under wraps up about the upcoming adaptation will reportedly center around Willy Wonka's early days prior to operating his elaborate fact. The range in the really Wonka movie. They kind of mentioned when they're great. Paul Joe right there. Would you work with them? I think so. Yeah. So we don't know if the Opal Lupas will make an appearance. And maybe this will show the part where he meets the Lupus. There goes the Lupoli. I know. I don't know. But would it be an idea that you would say Yeah, I would probably check that. Did you say I'm sorry? I missed that. If he did, he said, who's playing Willy? They don't have that Cassidy. That's crucial for May. I would agree with that, so,
How to move forward with China
"To fourteen point list of grievances via the australian media. Second wine joined beef. Bali timber lobster call among our exports that the chinese communist party has imposed tariffs on. And then that tweet. This is the tweet of the posting of a digitally altered of an australian soldier about to slit the throat of an afghan child. The chinese embassy issuing a bellicose statement the rage in roar of some ustralian politicians and media was misreading and reaction. It said to deflect public attention from the horrible atrocities by sickness soldiers and to blame china for the worsening of bilateral ties. So what's going on. He and asha camera respond. Jeff rabi is a former australian ambassador to the people's republic of china and he's author of china's grand strategy and australia's feature in the new global order. That's just been published and it's available in all good bookstores jeff. Welcome back to the show so some great to be back now. I your thoughts about beijing's response to australia in recent weeks so we have that list of the foreign complaints the wind terrace and of course that tweet while a say i up disappointing to see the slights that have been made After the two quite constructive comments at the triumph prime minister a last week quite clearly. The prime minister was Diplomatically signaling That there was a strong wish to start a process of getting back to some sort of more normal relationship between the two countries the product make though it sounds dramatic when you run those three things together the way you have done that certainly not the same thing. And i'm not sure that they're all necessarily coordinated. I mean the fourteen points clearly seems to be freelancing by the embassy on matters that well known and in the public record in any case at a very odd way of putting something out if you leak it to a channel nine television crew that seems to be pretty casual behavior by the embassy then the tariff spo there has been a processing trained for months on the wind tariffs and i do understand that that was the normal process and the strain companies were busily making written submissions as part of that process. And then the tweet The present time it sounds like it's been contrived by the chinese foreign ministry as individual action. it was a tweet that was particularly widely on social media by a now nationalist artist and twitter and the foreign ministry spokesperson on his private twitter account. Pinder to name and so it's philippine. Middle level action doesn't really look to millions of any of these really coordinated broad cross section of the australian people just looking at the y. People who've responded this week is there is outrage and surely win china. does things like. This doesn't make it harder for people like you because you've been an eminent company on this issue for several years now. Hugh watt a bobcar. Pass gas on this program. Of course the former prime minister paul keating. Doesn't it make it hot. A all of you to make the case that al leaders should try to rebuild trust with such a regime yet. I can understand the public outrage especially the media is going into overdrive steer and just as you have said running all these things together as a coordinated action from the state It does make it harder to get sensible constructive discussion going a story about how we deal with these things. I like to find myself in such august company as you outlined. And you might add gareth evans. Many others that to the group as well but it certainly history doesn't help and it's difficult context in which to conduct foreign policy. What we're seeing is what is like to live in the situation with china relationships In a very poor state now. Other people in camera that i see welcome this their peopling camera who have the view that bad relations with china are inevitable. This is the new normal. We should get used to it and lupus it while the questioning myself. And the august company you've being linking me with. Is this the best interest of australia. And it also basic question. Your what has australia down to bring on china's in this way why you think china is picking on again. Picking on is quite pejorative. They're not doing this to other states. Our other key point. And i would phrase that differently tom i would say how is it that astray amongst like minded friends and allies other liberal democracies in the world in the region why's at the trial has become an outlaw and i think that really needs to be part of the public discussion. Isn't the reason. The australia is so over exposed to chinese pressure in beijing. Nosy so the chinese leaders going to inflict pain on australia whenever they can't australia. And not the other like minded way boy more. In other countries we ought to forty percent of our exports to china. No other country has that kind of exposure. I prefer countries in the region. China is by far the largest trading power. I mean that exposure would be the same for korea south korea which is liberal democracy in the region. it would be near that level. For nearly all the countries in the east asian region china is the dominant economic patna of all of the countries in the region and that is just a fact at its reflects. The extent to which china has grown as the dominant economic power in east asia. Alexander downer. The former. Foreign minister says that now's the time to reduce our exposure to china. But what everyone is saying. There's nothing new novel in that. And obviously when people start to realize that we are going to have for a long time a difficult and challenging relationship with china's manage. That's a fairly obvious. Point to make interesting from In addition to being former minister former director of the board of while clay. And very active Proponent in boosting. Australia china trade relations phrase time as soon as minister and i work very closely with him in that and i think we achieved a lot. So why wouldn't you wanna diversify every sensible business. Every sensible company diversifies the port made over and over again on this aspect is that it's going to be very hard. Because of the absolute scale and growth and prosperity of china. You are a foreign policy realist. All gripe house ruthless and that includes chana hardball at every turn and the stronger. China gets the more likely to throw its wide around now to the extent. These realist analysis is correct. How on earth do we solve. this problem. absolutely correct agree with all those points. Another point that needs to be made. And you don't make it much tom. And your pride yourself as being a realist and that is the relationship is asymmetrical that is effect. We need china. More than china needs us. This is not a comfortable place for us to be but it's a place we are. It's a place where we're stack and will remain and so We need to work out how to manage that relationship and we haven't done a particularly good job of a judging by the state rewritten today. So although you express yourself in a different way you essentially gray with the foreign policy realists professor join me shauna regular guest on this program and he argues that his china's power increases its definition of its national interests will grow and then beijing will seek a survey influence in areas on which its future security and prosperity dependent in response. The us will go to great lengths to stop china's rises. It essentially. your argument is well up a poet. I'm a great Admire of joint mish as well. I differ with him on a couple of points but his analysis and arguments have been hugely influential in helping me shape my thinking about these But i put on sphere of influence is. I think that's already happened. I think china is the dominant paranagua this at length in my book in eurasia from the east china sea to also china is the dominant parent. That's happened largely because sanctions against russia poor economic performance by russia Pushback from from europe against russia has meant that brushes had to cede to china's ascendancy in eurasia and so very part of the world. And i think we now live in a world of michigan talks about a world of two great powers with boundary orders and in the question then becomes is some equilibrium at stable between the two. And i believe there is.

The Gluten Connection to Osteoporosis and Autoimmune Diseases
"I'm Cassie Wenas. I've been a registered and licensed stay Titian for twenty two years and of those twenty two years I've been teaching nutrition classes and Co hosting this dishing up nutrition program for about the past fourteen to fifteen years. I am telling you this certainly not to make myself feel old. But to let you know that I have quite a bit of experience to share and I feel really fortunate to be able to be here this morning to help all of you listening better understand the connection between what you eat and how you feel. And today my co host Teresa and I will be discussing subject that I know a lot about and if we're being honest I know a lot about this topic more by destiny certainly not by choice we're going to be talking about the myriad of health problems that gluten grains cause for a lot of people as many of our listeners know I know a lot about this topic not only because of how gluten has negatively affected my health but what? Really drives, my passion on this topic stems from the fact that both of my kids have a condition called seal EAC and if you're not familiar with this autoimmune condition in a nutshell, it's when your body has a severe reaction to gluten and actually causes your body to begin attacking itself. It's kind of like the immune system goes haywire, and if you swallow even just a tiny speck of gluten, your immune system I begins attacking your own small intestine. So. Now you know a little bit about our topic for the day next, I'd like to ask a few questions just to get everybody connecting the dots as we delve further into what we call the dark side of gluten. So question number one, do you or a close family member have lupus. Do you or a close family member have rheumatoid arthritis or do you have a thyroid condition like? Disease or Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Do you have Raynaud's if you're not familiar with rain odds, I can explain from personal experience. Raynaud's is when the blood vessels in your hands and your feet. Constrict when you get cold and they constrict beyond what's Normal When the weather or the air is cold or it can happen because of stress as well, and then your fingers or your toes might turn white and you get sort of a burning pain not fun. Or is your Autoimmune Disease Scleroderma or type one diabetes. Do you or a loved one have chronic acid reflux or do you have osteoporosis if you can say, yes to any of these questions you're in for a super informative show today theresa and I WanNa help you make the connection between eating gluten grains namely the the Ri- The barley and most oats and your health problems. And as I just mentioned, my co host today is Theresa. I WanNa tell you a little bit more about her Theresa Wagner like me is a registered and licensed AIA Titian she to teaches many of our nutrition classes she of course, Co host this radio program. She's a mom of young kids and she counsels clients several days a week either by zoom or phone appointments because of Covid, nineteen were offering all of our nutritional counseling either by video or phone appointments. Yes. That's right and we are staying busy with those phone appointments and zoom appointments but as it relates to our topic today, cassie. Mentioned earlier that your kids CEAC. Disease. It made me think were you shocked at the many hidden sources of gluten when you started? Living a gluten free life all those years ago I really was shocked I had been a Dietitian for many years at that point by the time our family got diagnosed. So I knew gluten was inbred. I. Knew it was in anything made with wheat flour but I had no idea of the more hidden sources of gluten in our American food supply just to give you a couple. Of examples. Gluten is in some brands of Deli meat. It's in a lot of summer sausage and beef stick brands. It's in some ice creams for heaven's sakes and even in some medicines, not only that but when you have, CEAC, you have to be careful about personal care items to you need to be sure you're buying gluten free shampoo gluten free toothpaste, gluten-free Lotion, and gluten-free makeup. Yeah. It's so crazy to me that gluten is an ingredient in so many every day nonfood products. It reminds me of a client who had ongoing migraine headaches. We have limit. You know we had gone through elimination where we Eliminated. The dietary sources of what we thought causing the Migraines and we went through lifestyle habits that we thought could possibly be causing the migraines when we finally looked at her personal care products and switched to a shampoo without added gluten. Her migraines they disappeared.

Apple reveals lower cost watch and updated iPad
"Maybe with the event's title, we should have known it would-be. Short. Tuesday's time flies event flew past at just over one hour, four pieces of hardware, basically, as well as new services and the services bundle we're focusing on hardware today. Surprising, absolutely, no one apple on Tuesday announced apple. Watch series sex running through the hardware. The S six system and package packs a new dual core processor based on the eighth thirteen bionic an iphone eleven it runs twenty percent faster than series five apps launch twenty percent faster. It's the first. Apple. Watch to include the you one ship, an ultra wideband antennas. The series six always on retina display is up to two point five times brighter outdoors than Apple Watch series five. Both the same all day eighteen hour battery life is before and can hit full charge in one point five hours. To features focused on during the devices introduction where the always on all tinder and the blood oxygen sensor. Not sure why always on is important for an intimidator unless you're worried about rock climbing in your sleep Apple says the always on ultimate provides real time elevation all day long by using a new more power efficient, barometric, ultimate her along with GPS and nearby Wi fi networks. This feature allows for the detection of small. Changes above ground level up and down to the measurement of one foot. And can be shown as a new watch face complication or workout metric. More life and death or the blood oxygen sensor and is associated APP. Apple says, series six measures the oxygen saturation of the users blood. So they can better understand their overall fitness and wellness. Oxygen saturation or S P o two represents the percentage of oxygen being carried by red blood cells from the lungs to the rest of the body and indicates how well this oxygenated blood is being delivered throughout the body. And how it works is really cool according to Apple's presentation. The sensors are basically checking the color of the blood as it passes by. That color indicates how oxygenated the blood is, which is free again. Amazing. Speaking of colors for the to apple watches I've owned I've chosen brushed aluminum. It's easy to match with just about anything. But if you have a signature color or don't care about matching or. Planned to have plenty of apple watches on hand to put on your wrist Apple Watch now comes in the couple of colorful colors. For. The first time says apple a new blue color. Silver Space Grey and gold aluminum case options along with the product Red Apple. Watch. With exclusive matching, bright red bands stainless steel models are now available and graphite and an updated classic Yellow Gold Color Apple. Watch edition is available in natural and space black titanium. Series six also says Sayonara to ceramic while apple didn't mention it during the event. A piece from macrumors says, that is no more. As is the way the arrival of new apple watches also meant the arrival of new bands. This time though whole new bands, not just new colors. Sport Band makes way for so loop. No clasp. No buckle. Solo Lupus a continuous end stretchable ban design that says comes into materials, soft silicone and braided yarn. Nine sizes for those. Apples supposed to have a size guide on its site. Checking Apple side it looks like Sport Band is just making room not seeding the field. Both sport? Band and Solo loop available to order as of now, there's also said to be a first of its kind leather link that wraps around the rest held in place with flexible molded magnets. Nikewatch gets everything we've talked about already plus a new Nike face and new colors for the Nike Sport Band and Nike Sport Loop. Same goes for Apple Watch air MAS- as far as improvements the hardware it's stainless steel cases come and silver or space black paired with single or Dubna, tour styles and an assortment of vibrant new colors. Now about the only thing predictions got wrong for Apple Watch as E was its name. leakers had thought that that was shorthand that it'd be called something simple like apple. Watch. Apple Watch S E is the budget chronometers name. Well mid range chronometer Apple Watch series three is the true budget model still out there selling for one hundred, ninety, nine bucks. An apples press release apple CEO Jeff Williams was quoted as saying Apple Watch S E combines elements of the series six design with the most essential features of Apple Watch, all at a more affordable price. No Blood Oxygen Sensor and no, always on display. It does sport the always on all temperature though because apple is taking this sleep climbing thing seriously. Looking at the hardware sports the same size displays as the Apple Watch series five. The S., five system and package and dual core processor deliver performance that's up to two times faster than the Apple Watch series three. The S. E. Packs the fives haptic feedback for the digital crown, and that speaks and here's what the latest speaker and microphone in the watch line. Apple says, watch as e features the same accelerometer gyroscope. altimeter as Apple Watch series six and with the latest motion centers and microphone. It offers robust health and safety capabilities including fall detection emergency, SOS, International Emergency, calling, and the noise. APP. Now, if you decide, the six time is the charm that you're finally ready to buy Apple Watch. The one you buy probably won't have a charger in the box Lisa Jackson vp of environment policy and social initiatives at apple appeared during Tuesday's event extolling the environmental virtues of apples timekeeper. Sometimes. Jackson said it's not what we make but what we don't make that counts. That he's from seeing that says that when she said that apple won't be including USB adapters with this week's watches. As putting them free in the box consumes resources and adds to apple's carbon footprint. Interestingly, people who can afford to buy a charger without giving it a thought. Won't have to do so. A separate piece on chargers Napa Watch from apple insiders as apple, watch, addition, and Apple Watch. Will include a five watt power adopter. Bloomberg's Mark Gherman Kinda cried foul over that on twitter. Quoting his tweet looks like the Apple Watch titanium and Armez model still have the power adapter. So the more expensive versions keep it. makes it seem like it's less of an environmental thing and more cost driven? I can get thinking that as an immediate reaction. Here's the thing though you gotta figure apple sells at a minimum hundreds of entry level apple watches for every single edition or. Sold. Probably thousands. So even though it looks like catering to the wealthy and yeah, there may be a bit of that. Even though it looks like catering to the wealthy dropping chargers, millions of people probably don't need. Might make an environmental difference. No I saw way more than one piece saying not including chargers with Apple Watch is just the beginning. While, it has been rumored that the next round of iphones will also arrived without a charger. Apple doesn't seem to a pulled the chargers from the ipads that are also coming out this week. We'll get to those in a bit. Want to get an Apple Watch for your kid but not give them an iphone worried that mom or dad may have a slip and fall or ended up seriously directionally challenged apple has a plan to watch the whole family. Selling points as far as apple's concerned with family setup, you can stay connected with family members without an iphone from making and receiving phone and facetime audio calls to sending and receiving messages and emails, and even connecting with other Apple Watch wearers over walkie talkie. Parents have the ability to approve all contacts. So kids can safely use the communication features of Apple Watch, according to the company. The activity rings experience has been optimized for kids according to Apple. Emergency SOS is being pushes the benefit though. Apple Watch already does that. And finally school time and downtime or front and Center for children while optimizations focused on health for older relatives take precedence at the other end of the spectrum. Now the news that will make family setup less useful for many. It requires cellular models, of Apple, watch series four or later or Apple Watch S E running watch os seven paired with iphone six s or later running IOS fourteen. Apple also said that kids and older family members of the household using family set up, we'll have their own phone number through a separate cellular plan. So, while you don't need to get GRANDPA and the kids their own phones, each cellular watch will come with a tone cellular plan and. Associated Bill. Family setup goes live today and so by the way does watch Os Savon. that. was kind of surprise more on that a bit later. With such an emphasis on the health, it's not overly surprising that the new Apple Watch Slash Watch Os Combo brings a few new health studies. macrumors runs those down starting with an asthma study being run in conjunction with the Insurance Company Anthem and the University of California, Irvine. Second the peace says Apple has tied up with university health network and the University of Toronto to learn more about how Apple Watch metrics including blood oxygen can be used to manage heart failure. Finally macrumors says apple is partnering with investors at the Seattle, flew study at faculty at the University of Washington School of Medicine to explore how changes in blood oxygen and heart rate can be early signals the onset of influenza and Kobe nineteen. The watches by the way are ready to order now. Those opened on. Tuesday, they'll ship on Friday in the US Puerto Rico twenty seven other countries and regions. Apple Watch series starts at three, hundred, ninety, nine dollars adding cellular adds another hundred. Bucks. Same goes for the Apple Watch Nike and Apple Watch Air Mas- that the prices run higher on the AMAS models. The new bands are also available to now they too will ship on. Friday the eighteenth of September. Though only in the US and fourteen other countries and regions. Porters are also underway for Apple Watch as E. It's got a starting price to seventy nine dollars. Interestingly, adding cellular to that one only adds fifty bucks raising the price to three twenty nine. It also ships this Friday and the US Puerto Rico And twenty seven other countries and
Michigan To Pay Flint Residents $600 Million Over The City's Drinking Water
"Million settlement with residents of Flint over the city's drinking water crisis. The problems began in 2014 when improperly treated water corroded the city's pipes. And leeched lead into the tap water, making people sick. We wanted to hear what Flint residents thought. So we called up Jenna McDonald. She's a substitute teacher and mother of two young boys. When my co host Ari Shapiro, met Jenna four years ago in February, 2016 she had taught her boy's a really important lesson. We've continued to check in with her throughout the years, and she joins us again. Now. Welcome back. Thank you. So Governor Gretchen Whitmer called this a step toward making amends. How do you feel? What's your reaction to the settlement? Is like a little ray of sunshine it for me and for my family. My biggest fear is that everyone will forget about Flint. It would get swept under the rug, and no one will remember. So I'm very excited to know that our wonderful governor kept her promise about keeping this on her four part of her mind in their Flint residents matter. Much of the money will be devoted to Children who are six years or younger when first exposed to the contaminated water and your son's justice and Josiah fall into that category. Will you be seeking compensation? And is it enough? There is no amount that will be enough ever if each of us got the 600 million apiece that's still will not replace the damage that was done. I have very close friends who lost parents two Legionnaires. I'm still under the belief that my son's autism is a result of these lay a tainted water, so there's no amount of money. Deca, replace or even tried Tio comfort lifelong things like that. Are you going to see compensation? 100%? Yes. And you know, I've been thinking about this. You haven't been on the programme since the pandemic started. And I've really wondered how Cove in 19 has impacted you and your neighbors, especially with all this necessary, extra hand washing big, big amount of stress. You already tried to kind of limit how much you were playing or in the water are trying to wash your hands. But now you don't have a choice. I can live with whatever little damage that that late is possibly doing to my body and just meant through my skin. But I can't live through Cove it I have. Ah, you know, auto immune disease with my Lupus, So I think it would take me out. So I'll take my chances washing my hands with the Flint water versus getting called it.

"The kidneys and stuff the other thing that you don't want the other thing that you should be aware of the rheumatologists are very aware of it, but I'm not sure the. Germs are is that patients with Lupus have an increased risk actually very high increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Okay. Yeah and most of my lupus patients will die of a heart attack. No matter what we do we, we try to fix it, but we haven't figured out how to prevent it yet, and I think that goes for the skin lupus patients as well interest. So I think it you should go back to the family doctor and say look if any of your lupus patients present with a typical pain that could be is these are women, right? They're not diagnosed until they have a massive heart attack and then late. They tend to have micro vascular disease and with that micro vascular disease somebody typical symptoms and I think that's another thing you need to be aware. That's a great point. It's something I never think of Would you advocate then that primary care physicians? To aggressively manage any other cardiac risk factors in lupus patients ethnic. Okay. Yeah. Well okay. We also talked a little bit about how you don't tend to use or find anti-malarials particularly effective in dramatic biocide but do you tend to find them more effective in your lupus patients? They're they're hugely effective in Lupus, agents, and in fact, you could make an argument and and and when I mentioned the things that would you do with a positive way right? If someone has skin lupus I do and has a positive way. Right? So they have maybe disc loops a positive. I. Do discuss even though it may be just one lesion, the pros and cons of going on an anti-malaria and the reason is Years, ago, a study of military recruits showed that being on an anti malarial.

Dr Kate Welcome to the broken being pot. Adding more LADES, you're young man, you're only forty-three. There's a lot more accolades you can add to your resume over the. Perfect job. A Mike my goal at the end of the day to help kids feel better. That's beautiful. Goal a beautiful purpose and I can't wait to dig into that in today's podcast and I wanna get into a little bit of origin story. How did you get clear and where did all the puzzle pieces aligned himself that that is your goal. You know. I think the universe was calling me. To do this. The first reason why I got into, it was for my own health up as a kid, I had pretty severe anxiety. SPENT, most of my adolescent teenage years in mix of anxiety and depression yo and. My nervous system was upside down and I couldn't really understand why I knew that I was different. I knew I experienced the world differently, but I really had no clue why you know like who would have thought that eating fast food everyday. All Day will be an issue for for your nervous system going bonkers is that what was going on? Were you eating fast food and kind of go? How is the standard American new way of life I mean college like that's what you do. Right Even I remember actually Loma Linda is a vegetarian institution. Why it's famous for being one of the hospital in the Blue Zone. The seventh day adventists. Yeah. But when I got accepted there, one of the thoughts that I had is like Oh my God. What am I gonNA do without my burgers. And that was the mindset I had going into training because I didn't know any better and what actually got me to start looking outside was during my training. I kept kept coming across these cases and I remember one very, very vividly. Twelve year. Old Guy. Severe Severe Colitis. Came in with toxic, Mega Colin were his colon had dilated to about ten centimeters, which is huge, and we did around the steroids. We did some medications for him. He got better when home. Two weeks later, I was still on service. Worse off than before and Beato, our team started the discussion and we brought in all the specialists and basically the end of the discussion was well, he's failing medications. We just need to cut out his colon literally was like he failed medications. So the next option is we just cut out this twelve year olds a lot inflammation. Something's going on. Let's just cut the thing out. because. That is the next standard of care, right. I had a lot of these kinds of scenarios where kids would show up like I remember another guy who plays soccer. He scraped his knee niece bowl up and then thirty six hours later, he was dead. You know and they were just like well, sometimes staff does unlike I've scraped my knee, I haven't died like, what was it about his system that caused him to fall apart and it was this recurring question of like these things don't add up two plus two equal in this scenario and the institution, and they're really smart people alone Linda, don't get me wrong. But the pediatric conventional training was like no two plus two equals farm like it doesn't look this way. So as it is in most hospitals and worst Western approach. Places. Because that's what people are trained in. But you were asking a different question. You're like, okay. This doesn't make sense what's really going on. Exactly. Yeah, and that is what ultimately led me to start taking courses. So I, I went to one holistic kind of course, and it was a dinky little course, but I was like, oh. My God I, you know I have found my people, the light bulbs went off and you started connecting dots. And then from there I went and did a bunch of training with Institute of Functional Medicine and the trading with the University of Arizona, and in the midst of that, I started realizing the pieces that were affecting me so like. I did the elimination diet and started feeling better and then I found myself to have MTA. And I think my initial homocysteine was sixteen when I first tested it, I'm like Jesus. So I started injecting myself with B twelve and you know I was my own best Guinea pig. And in the midst of getting interested, what also happened is Loma Linda's in didn't have anyone that was getting interested in this stuff. They're like, Hey, you wanNA, start a holistic medicine clinic and. Like. Two years of my training and there I was like all of the sudden getting handed these patients you know and I was the expert even though I basically didn't know that much. But through the process of learning and I was really really privileged to be put in a place where you know fifty year olds, I was a pediatrician fifth year olds with Severe Lupus. Land in my doorstep helped me I'm like. I don't know anything about Lupus. So let me learn so I. I spent all this time. Just researching in learning. You know any person that I could find with any material they had on the Web I was reading books listening to the videos. And I was just consuming all of this information in the midst of that. Also learning from my patients,

"We're back with the last segment. A final portion to explore is how Russia has felt encouraged in her journey through art. God and much more. Here's one ashes words and yeah well so when everything was kind of happening with my sister. a painting that I had worked and I didn't really recognize the time how much I relied on art until this experience. So when we were roommates that summer There is a painting that I was working on. I like to call it. Black girl joy and initially. I think I was so happy because it had been years since we had like just pretty much been in the same living space and this is female. She was laughing and stuff like that. But it didn't get completed because of how things were happening with my sister's help and I didn't touch it again until like after she had passed. Because I told myself this is GonNa be my challenge I'm probably GonNa cry throughout this piece. Probably GONNA be angry but it's GonNa Cause me to confront a lot of feelings in Naini being like super like it's not one of the most like amazing pieces but it's something that means a lot to me and it shows me that I can power through like heart difficult times and it's something that I've tried to like apply even now so like when I'm feeling down or anything like that I will sketch or I'll look at things that other artists are doing and I'm just like well. How can I make my own or you know what's in new like acrylic painting that I can do or at home? That like a scatchard. I haven't finished that I want to go back to you. And because I think it kind of gives my mind something positive to focus on instead of myself Because of relative told me that when you're feeling depressed it causes you to focus on self As a form of selfishness and I know it does. It probably doesn't imply that way for everybody but that's the way I kind of like view it sometimes like you get down like a natural thing you know you have those days but you have to like fight through it in. Don't give up on yourself and don't give up on people that you see who are feeling really down because you know that's not who they are and you have to remind them that even when they are having like even when there are having a tough time because once they pull through there. Can you like men if someone never told me to keep going? I don't know and I feel like that's something that guy does he like? He'll use people to kind of like encourage you because sometimes when you are in a funky shut him off and he's like oh no oh no. You're my we we're about. I'm about to encourage you to day. Like I like you use other mediums to kind of. Tell us like keep going. Don't stop like I want you to leave in. I want you to like help. Someone else longer wait. So that's how art has how some of you may be going through tough times and today on Valentine's Day. It may sting a little bit more because everything is happiness and bubbliness and everything that's around seems to be perfect but life is not like that and the Nasha knows that. So here's some tips that Menasheh give says to live with our experiences and put a positive spin while remaining real and the process. Well definitely look to something that has always like got through whether it's positive like reinforcement or just trying to do something good to get your mind towards going on into your community and helping someone out aside from yourself gain actually be really rewarding Because I think that's just that's another form of like a Labor of love and also you can't always rely on other people at the same time to make you feel better like something for me is that I do go to guy in the conversations with God who get real sometimes and it's not always going to be fluffy prayers you know like if you're building your relationship sometimes it's GonNa be ugly moments. Sometimes it will be like. I'm so glad that you're in my life But I think sometimes I personally wouldn't tell people is like life is not going to be perfect in. I think that's a curve ball that life kind of like constantly tries to prepare for. But you have our take on your previous experience and try to find a new way that you're going to apply now like what did you learn from it in how you want it to like? Be a new skill or something to help you to survive in the future. Because that's what it's you know. Life is also about survival at the same time and I think that having a mindset of like I'm not gonNA quit and I'm gonNA keep fighting and I'm not GonNa let something like you know. Light temporary kind of like stopped me from what? I WANNA do in life. Look at people who like inspire you. There's a lot of people Not even celebrities but people like a daily basis that I've encountered even in the past few years my whole life that have been positive like foundations for me in like look for that. That's what I would tell. People like look for the beauty. Like I know it's hard but to still look for the beauty. As a national says life the serfs to be lived and loved it has signed for the final word here is monotonous final word and I decided to include Patriot exclusive. And you'll see why in just a second here's the final word okay I actually went to flip it to you. I want to ask you. What are some positive things that you do the like your storms in late question right now? I guess this is the content that the patrons get but so something that's happening in my life right now is that it's very difficult to have any friends around. I don't have any anybody around and I've been a little bit depressed for the past couple months but Something that I think. It's helping me is Definitely finding someone that I can put my life into. Even when I don't have energy I think that if I can help someone else like you said gives me. Joy By another thing is reclaiming my story And realizing that this is just a step in the very large part of my future. Dismal man is not the final moments. This moment is not the end for me. It's just another step on the road and whether I I mean I don't feel necessarily great I I know it well it will be okay as long as I make sure that I stay healthy physically and mentally if I ever see that something is not working there then I definitely need help from someone else so for me. I think something that I do is like I try to stay alert and I tried to reclaim that. I am not in this point because it's my fault because whatever the circumstance but this is a step in the story and is not the answer.

And I kind of had this thought in my head like I know how I'm going to leave this world you know that's what I was thinking however when it came to support Checking people who told me about myself like you need. Get it together right. Pull yourself together and because it's not just you'd that you're living for you know like. I feel like that's something that Got Kinda puts in a lot of people who have that like drive to live like you want to show people the positive side of life you want to show people like one of the most beautiful things that you can do in your own. Life is still decide to go in your journey. You know and not just stop and I think that going to see family or checking in with people or vice versa. Where they're doing that with me. I think that kind of like fed me a little bit like spiritually emotionally like all that stuff. It's like with you know when you're taking care of plants have little babies when you pour water into them where you sit him outside for a little bit they start to thrive if you sit them inside the house for too long. They start to withered. And it just doesn't look as good as it could be and I think that's that's an analogy that I try to apply to my life now the same way that people try to uplift. Muir encouraging. I try to do that with the people around yet. Support while important comes and goes and sometimes it's constant but with Lupus Complex medical condition. That is part of the nationals. Life how does she live with that? She afraid of what may happen in the future. I did when I got the diagnosis. How then turned into anger? Because I was just like oh no. This is not about to happen to me. I'm about to tackle it this this way that way like I went crazy with the exercising and diet and like I look like this. This is my pinky because I was so obsessed with like it's not going to take me out and it's like an enemy That refuses to let you go in every day you wake up. It's like oh I'm still here. You know But I think something. That's really encouraging people who live with it. In in people who have reversed it when their own health wise and just with positive thinking what you putting your body with the way that you live your life and It's just like there's been days where I'm just like this sucks like this is horrible and I hated and I kind ask God like so. What do you want me to do with this? What do you want me to do? Something that has brought in a lot of confusion in sadness and anger and I guess I'm trying now to pull something positive out. It's whenever I do. Have those negative feelings. I find myself trying to create or I don't know you you don't want to stay in those negative feelings for so long. It's like some days it'll make you feel really will target like really really tired. Other days like you'll have fevers out of nowhere Your joints might be hurting or like some people who have other cases of like seizures or Sometimes there's like a brain fog and then there's Yeah there's a joint pain and Hair loss like it's a lot that can go with it and you just have to be on top of your research because it can. Sometimes it can affect organs like your kidneys and things of that nature like have complications with your involvement with your liver and all this stuff and it's not to like make anyone scared. It's just like with everything that has to do with disease or like autoimmune diseases like that like you have to know all this information so that you know what you need to do to kind of like counter-attacked counterattack. Something that I want to share about. Vanessa is that she is a happy person you check her instagram facebook or other social and you see a happy person. Through and through. As a part of her decision process she evaluated the traditional versus natural remedies options and here are some thoughts on that process and how to determine. What's best for you Well I know everyone's different. That's something that not just. Medical professionals have told me but also like family and friends. And that's something that I also take into consideration as well however with. This is my opinion when it comes to medication in deciding to go that route in an also deciding to take the natural. Both of them have pros and cons. both them can benefit or some of them might have no benefit And it also depends on how you take effort to take care of yourself I'm not perfect. I still like to eat stuff that makes me happy but I think that For me I have seen positive results with Deciding to be more intentional with what you eat because it makes me feel better. It makes you feel like you can like take on the world when you're like yeah. I just ate that Cam. I used kills nasty. But it's good like when you have this kind of like or dislike okay. You're on pinchers. And you're looking at like healthy options in how people make it look amazing. You're GonNa do this and I think I did. Try the natural route in. That was helping me because it definitely gave me a lot of energy like oh my goodness and with the traditional medical out Just having a team of doctors or people that are on the same page is you guys are making sure that your bloodwork looks good or that you know like you're looking at different options to manage. Lupus So it's for me long-term it kind of looks like a mixture of both because that's just my personal preference in D- if things change then we'll just have to hand with like accordingly so yeah with that we'll be back with more disruptive Adam.

"Dot org brought to you by the lupus foundation of America and the centers for disease control and prevention this is Bloomberg businessweek Carol master and Jason Kelly from Bloomberg radio this is what business week does so well Jason take something that many of us probably take for granted and I'm talking about vanilla yeah I certainly take it for granted is sitting there in the spice cabinet although we have noticed over the last couple years of the anybody he's paying attention to expensive price has bite at times in a really meaningful way well there's a story behind that Monty real he has some of those interesting assignments because some of the most interesting places and this story took him to Madagascar are likely for us he's back home in Chicago that's where he joins us so Monty tickets to Madagascar are and to this market yes this is a regional market this is the place where vanilla actually enters the international marketplace and it's really remote it's really kind of hard to get to it's basically a hot a wooden high in a really small villages in northeastern Madagascar which is the vanilla growing region and deceive unit idea of how tough it is to get there see flight Madagascar's capital you take a small plane to a small airport in the northeast then you have to drive over really really bad roads to try to get to this particular market area and for example when we did that our driver couldn't go any further because the road we were on was actually swallowed by river so we had to Wade across the river likely it wasn't very deep and then walk for a couple hours beyond that to finally reach this little hut really in a in a village where dozens of farmers would bring their annual harvest of vanilla and that's where it would be bartered bought over by international flavor companies and exporters and then go out into the wider world yes it is a great line your story you talk about where you went as this great observation lab that I want to take your words exposes but the genius and insanity of globalized commerce I mean that's exactly what you start work yes met it's almost hard to imagine some of the things that happen in the vanilla trade in terms of for example just how the crop is paid for its all cash it's a cash economy so the buyers who go to these markets half to get cash you know along the same route that we took to get there and the biggest denomination bill in Madagascar is worth about five dollars and these buyers are buying tons of vanilla beans and these even though it means coming when they're cured can cost as much as six hundred dollars per kilo so they need lots of cash so there's actually they bring bales unveils of cash to these markets on the back of motorcycles and and just being carried and that's just one example of kind of the the strange market that vanilla is because of its isolation there in Madagascar are and also because of the the price swings and so much yeah I have to say reading this story in Caroline I've talked a lot about it this week just between the two of us at our desks this notion of how is this market so limited to this one really obscure place because this is not one of these things that candidly you read about in the back of pursuits where you know only people who are billionaires can get this mean this is something we both have right in our homes how has it been so limited to this one geography well it it comes from an orchid vanilla grows from the flower of an orchid and it's actually native to Mexico but many years ago that it was basically transferred Africa and it was found that it grew very well in Madagascar are and just you know vanilla is not one of those products that can be grown like soy beans or something like that easily manage commodity it really is a stubborn crop as people grow it describe it it likes to grow among other plants and it's incredibly labor intensive so every step of the growing and cultivation process is done by hand even the pollination of the flowers to get the beans to grow is done by hand so it basically it comes down to one of the main reasons why Madagascar dominates the trade so much is labor costs the minimum wage in Madagascar for agricultural workers is about eighteen cents an hour so you know in talking with people who work for vanilla companies they talk about trying to grow you start plantations and other tropical areas like places like Indonesia there are countries in Africa that have started to develop a vanilla industry but they say that you know that works well when vanilla prices are at highs but whenever the prices tank V. it becomes financially unstable to to invest.
