"malnutrition" Discussed on IsraAID

"In terms of in terms of the other sort of seasonal concerns that you brought up, malaria cholera, how do they interact with malnutrition? Okay, so yeah, so basically if you've ever managed malnourished child, basically they have a much lower immune system. Their system is immune is compromised. And so if there is an increase in cholera increase in malaria and they contracted with the malnutrition, they already have an underlying disease. I mean, malnutrition is a disease with plenty of its own side effects, and then you add another another disease process into that. And that can be that can be fatal from our children. Without enough treatment. And the thing is as well that we also which we haven't actually mentioned is the impact of COVID on two health systems. A lot of health systems in countries are struggling, are struggling to maintain what they can with the extra with COVID patients as well. Plus, then you bring in the other diseases, plus you bring in nutrition program. And it gets quite overwhelming. And so that's an important fact to remember as well. Does the health system isn't able to cope with all of these different disease processes? And COVID and a pandemic. Right. Yeah. Not an easy task to tackle. So let's transition in terms of what we can do. What can we do? What are the other preventive or responsive sort of methodologies, definitely preventive and definitely responsive? So I think that there's both. And I think that this year has also the COVID has been a real shock to everybody and we've all had to deal with what that equals. I think a lot of there's been a lot that has come out around the word public health. And I think that this is something that has become quite strong in the humanitarian setting and what public health is basically referring to is a multi sector or a multi disciplinary approach to health to health to looking after people's health. And so what we, as isra 8 are doing in terms of where we're working. I mean, certainly we're looking into our programs coming up for 2021, both in Kenya and in Guatemala. And the impact of nutrition in those countries and how we can respond. And the way that we're responding differs in both countries, but it does come down to education, it comes down to awareness. It comes down to public the public feeling like they have the control that they're empowered to do something before a seasonal epidemic arrives like cholera to educate them about how to protect themselves. And also to reduce the stigma around it. And I think around and around health seeking behavior. There's a lot of stigma around that. They are afraid of COVID..

And we're gonna talk about why we're talking about how to diagnose it and what to do about it. And why is such a big factor in so many underlying health conditions and often missed by traditional medicine. We're gonna take a functional medicine perspective on this today.

Liz thank you mark. It's great to be with you okay. So we think of malnutrition. We went to medical school. We learned all about it right. We learn about kwashiorkor and marasmus and zero valmy and ricketts barre barre pellagra and all these frigging diseases. That we don't really see in the west that are really increasingly rare because of improved access to food nutrition. And so we kinda have pretty much. Got that as our understanding of malnutrition and we were told. Basically food provides all the nutrients you need. You don't need vitamins and supplements makes expensive urine and we should just not follow on that track and study after study comes out showing how this interventional trial with omega three or four later this that doesn't work And and so the consumers wondering what's going on because it's clear that are is depleted and that people are eating a lot of crap and that thought a poor nutrition going on but but is there really a pandemic of malnutrition which can show up in someone who's thin or someone who was extremely overweight so Talk about what the state of our nutrition. Malnutrition is in america today and why we should all be concerned about being malnourished and what that means for our rural health you know so win were malnourished means. Were not getting the proper nutrients that we need for our body to function properly. And there's so many that's like our vitamins minerals fighter nutrients even our protein are healthy fats. And you're absolutely right. We see of under nutrition. Malnutrition in people who are underweight but also in people who are overweight and that's called obesity malnutrition and unfortunately it's more and more prevalent not just in the united states but worldwide

"That almost 30 million people in this a hell are in urgent Need of assistance? Yes, that's a rise of five million in just one year. Suffering is driven in large passed by ongoing Islamist violence. The newsroom's Peter Coffin told me more The hell is this broad stretch of West and Central Africa just south of the Sahara Desert. This statement by the U. N and some international charities has specifically mentioned Burkina Fasso, Chad, Mali, Neige and parts of Cameroon and Nigeria, and it said there are now a record 29 million people across those six countries who need humanitarian aid. 14 million are living at crisis or emergency levels of food insecurity, and included in that are an estimated 1.6 million Children experiencing severe malnutrition. Now that's a hell already faces challenges to food production. It's a new, arid place. The Sahara is expanding. But as you mentioned, the U. N has said that violence is really driving the increase in hunger. We know that governments in the region have been battling Islamist militias for the past decade. There are parts of the region under militant control. Just last week, we reported the Chad's president died leading his army against one of these groups, and in the past 24 hours, we've learned that a pair of Spanish journalists and an Irish citizen were killed in Burkina Fasso.

You can't just walk in and start taking pictures: War photographer on Yemen crisis

"This is daniel. Johnson picture the war in yemen. And chances are you've come across. An image ought to buy war photojournalist. Giles clarke on his latest trip to the country. That's been ravaged by six years of war. He based himself in an abandoned school that time to hundreds of displaced people. The photographs he took and the stories. He heard feature in a campaign to raise awareness about their plight. It's inside yemen portrait of resilience and it wasn't easy as he explained when i spoke to him for this. Un news interview the portraits resilience brother like approach other issues such as malnutrition mothers children victims of war that flee whenever fighting against and living in and around the hugs become impossible so these portraits have resilience are meant to show the side of humanity that we don't often see in these camps. These idee settlements often very difficult to get to of course yemen itself is difficult to get to but to get into some of these more remote camps it was my goal and although this woman is actually on the edge of aden which is slightly more accessible than or lot more accessible than many. That's probably why. I picked this particular place. Because i was able to build up trust with some of the subjects and address the concerns with a little bit more time when usually has in conflict zones. Maybe set the scene for me. What is it that you see when you arrive at this camp outside aden. What has to remember that this over four million people now displaced within yemen itself who have been moved pushed out various regions and many of them fled to the south and a number six seven hundred thousand of those make that way to from the northern regions particularly around data which was the caught that made the news twenty eighteen. Another came down the coast. You'll see in the inside yemen campaign that we created that. We wanted to tell the story about this. Taking the movement is mass movement of people so when you arrive in these places in yemen a lot of these places are very informal. There's no real structure that's usually a local camp to the leader if you like. And the un doing their best to try and provide aid agencies local agencies doing their best to try and provide supplies wfp and all the different groups that are trying to help these people who are now living very much in limbo In very rough crude makeshift shelters in this case. It was abandoned school which made the sort of a sect. That's often what i try and do. When i were trying to tell the stories find somewhere that i can work within and get to know people and sort of get an understanding before i go ahead and start work. So how long did it take you to build up a rapport with these displaced families in this abandoned school before you can press the shutter. How long does that take started. Working on the idea for poor chaser resilience. It really came from wanting to give some dignity to those who i'm working with the story. Hard life up rooted experience of trauma. And you have to remember the trauma. These people have been through and the going through so for traits resilience was to try and show really without doing too much but just putting them in front of my field division. I realize that you're dealing with people who have extraordinary resilience. These people really do have to deal with stuff that we would never have to think about here in comfortable of first world countries and often that takes time i mean i i went to aden in twenty eighteen and i've spent you know really weeks in that school that time And so you'll face becomes noreen and people begin to ignore you. Bet you know you're already sort of all the way to accept it when you start getting ignored. So how does it work. I mean you're in this setting and families are going about their business and you'll de to take photographs. Presumably you have a fix or someone who can speak for you especially in this situation. I don't have much time because you are outside the city security situation. That's really what you have to take into the people who look enough in the case of working with trump. We are very wary of where we were kim. What's going on around us. I mean i have to be in a bubble concentrating on my subjects on my work. But i also have to be very aware of the situation outside my sphere of vision and you stand out so you don't put anybody you're working with at risk or anybody who you're photographing at risk so very delicate process. It's always has been. I suppose trying to get to the heart of the story the key thing but bearing in mind all the outside influences but of course nothing to what these people have been

Biden administration faces challenges at U.S.-Mexico border

"A new development in the ongoing effort to reunite some 500 migrant Children who are separated from their families under the Trump Administration, zero tolerance policy at the US Mexico border. Biden administration will now allow families who were separated the option of being reunited here in the United States. Here's Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas yesterday, stressing the need to undo Previous administration's work. We will dig out of the cruelty of the past administration and we will rebuild our nation's asylum system. And all of our humanitarian programs of which we have been historically so proud. Jacob. Sober off is an NBC and MSNBC correspondent and author of separated inside an American Tragedy, and He's been following this story and joins us now. Welcome to the show, Jacob Good to be back with your time you thanks. Yes. So the most significant part of this effort is that it allows families to be reunited here on U. S soil. Why is this especially important? Well for the very reason that the families left their home country and came to seek asylum in the United States in the first place. Many of them were fleeing danger, persecution of starvation, malnutrition, acute food and security. The list goes on and on and when they made it to the United States of America, the place that represented safety and security and asylum. They were tortured. In the words of physicians for human rights. They were put through government sanctioned child abuse, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. It was one of the greatest human rights catastrophes of my lifetime, In the words of official who had worked on the reunifications, as he told me directly, And so this is the recourse that all of the advocates and the lawyers that I've been working with these families now for over three years. Have been seeking and it's welcome news. It's not reunification yet, but it's a step in that direction. Let's get to the particulars. How will these reunification efforts actually work? How will families know about these policy changes? Literally door to door knocking and Central America. There's a steering committee in the federal lawsuit that won the reunification of the family's missile versus ice on their going door to door justice in motion the women's Refugee Commission kids in need of defense. This is a group that has been involved in this process for quite some time. But up until this point. The reason there were 611 parents of Children who had been separated, had yet not been contacted That numbers now 400. 99 after 112 of them have been found over the course of the last month. The reason it's been taking so long is because of a lack of willingness from the federal government under the Trump administration to participate in this process, and the Biden administration has now changed that. Okay. I have just under a minute with you. But the C l U and groups like physicians for human rights have applauded these changes. But they're also calling on actors involved in these separations to be held accountable. How How would that happen? I think it's the most critical, remaining unanswered question about the family separation tragedy. I really think that that's you know what it must be called, Um, you know, the president said during the final presidential debate, he believed this was criminal. He said he was gonna launch a thorough investigation of the Justice Department. There's plenty of evidence of who was responsible for this policy. Whether it was Jeff Sessions Stephen Miller, Jean Hamilton, Kristine Nielsen. Kirsten Yes, Excuse me. That list goes on and on as well. It's a matter of whether they whether or not they want to pursue an investigation, like the president said that they would Jacob will have to have you on again.

Many Tigray refugees entering Sudan with nothing but their clothes: UNHCR

"Nearly sixty thousand people. From ethiopia's volatile tigray region have now crossed the border to remote southeastern sudan optimal than two months of fighting many with just the clothes on their backs. The emergency has created a massive protection challenge for the un refugee agency in sudan. Unhcr which is doing everything. It can't provide what they need as spokesperson. Xl bishop tells us news is daniel johnson. I've just been on a mission to the east. Where i have looked at the response in relation to the refugee influx from ideo. Peel right. so we're going to talk about the refugee influx which comes after two and a half months of fighting water. The numbers now that you're seeing seeking shelter over the border of sudan from ethiopia's northern region of tigray so we have about fifty eight thousand at europeans. Which are actually entered into saddam at the moment the influx is between two to five hundred people daily coming across the border. They're coming in through to border areas Diet and lewke that number coming over two to five hundred a day. That's a lot less than it was but you suggesting that perhaps people are just too far away from the border to get to safety across the border now yes the first influx which resources came from the villages on the western side of tigray at the moment the people which we are seeing of people who have walked for some time what we see is that maybe we have an indication that the western side of being emptied and the people seeking shelter not come from further away. What are they telling you what are their needs. So i mean. Most of the people have Actually entered sudan without anything so they come with their clothes but many many few coming with no possessions at what we hear is that many come without documentation which is also something which we are trying to address the first influx came in relation to direct fighting the influx which we have now. The people are telling us that it's more in relation to the fact that they don't feel safe in tigray not so much because of the fighting because they are from the gray area. So do you have an idea. About what the level of fighting is in tigray today. What is your access you know we are working on the sudan side and our office in addis. Ababa is actually trying to gain access now. What we are doing is trying to relocate them. From the border areas further inland. We have two camps at the moment which are some distance from the border where border conflict should not be a problem. Okay but i'm just concerned that there's no access to hundreds of thousands potentially of people on the other side of the border of sudan with. He need essential food. Water and other services reported rising malnutrition from the office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs and they cited bureaucratic obstacles in in getting access to people who need it so. What's the latest you have on tensely getting help to these people in need as we are sitting here on the sudan side we are focusing on the influx which has come across the border from at the opium and we also have offices in the opium which are dealing with the people who have moved inside the tigray area but also inside at your more at large. So let's talk about two and a half months into this conflict. In the northern region of tigrayan ethiopia. You're trying to relocate tens of thousands potentially of refugees because you've got camps further inland in sudan. Could you may be explain what the difficulties are first of all. It's always a challenge to actually find. Land land something which is owned here by individuals but also by government and we have been working together with the government of sudan. We go a piece of land which is old campsite which is called ambre kuba what we have placed about twenty thousand refugees at the moment here. We have within. I would say short span in able to at least all stem in attempts but also ensure water health and food the second site which we have because kuba has been saturated is tenable. it's further way than kouba and it takes about twelve to fourteen sometimes. Sixteen hours to actually have the buses leaving the border area arriving at the campsite. Which therefore makes it arrivals in the middle of the night now. The campsite is located in a very remote area where we don't have any electricity and we are concerned that actually offloading these amounts of people in the middle of the night with no lights is something of a concern to us. We are trying to do this now. In such a way that we have larger area rub whole set up where we host people until we have the song light out again and then we give them the tents which have been set up for them. Sure and final. Question to you mr bishop. We are two and a half months into this conflict refugees telling you that. They are hopeful. Being able to return amid this fighting between two grants and the marines in the northern region of ethiopia. Refugees are still hopeful. But i think that what we see Is that people are here for longer term and why we have had some people expressing hopes to return they would like to return to the tigray. Which was there some three months ago not to the new situation which stay. I've heard the bald.

IRC President On The Humanitarian Crises To Watch In 2021

"The International Rescue Committee publishes its emergency watch listed cheer to try to alert the world to urgent humanitarian crises. David Miliband is the IRS sees president and, of course, former foreign secretary of the United Kingdom. David Thank you so much for being with us. Good morning school. Where would you urge the world to look and to and to help in the year ahead? Well, I'll watch list has looked at 85 different indicators of humanitarian need. We've identified 20 countries that represent only 10% off the world's population, but 85% of the humanitarian need in the world. The U. N says that about 235 million people depend on humanitarian aid to survive on these countries represent about 200 million off those people led by Ah, Yemen. Afghanistan. And, as you say it's driven by this triple threat off conflict, the biggest driver off poverty and extreme poverty around the world a climate stress but also co vered The report shows that women in particular highly affected by these crises help us understand 70% of the women who of the population in humanitarian need our women and girls. There are multiple inequalities they face before disaster strikes. All of the evidence that we have from our years of experience as well as our impact evaluations. Studies shows that those inequalities are magnified in emergency situations. Not just the women and girls go hungry. But there's more violence against women and girls, more early marriage in emergency situations, and I think we face a real challenge here because on the one hand 200 million people sounds like an absolute mountain to climb. On the other hand, when you say look There are 20 countries that constitute over 80% of this need and they need a different kind of politics, some of it internal but also external diplomacy. They need economic help. Because although there's been a rallying to enter to need on a national level in which countries the international donor community has not stepped up for the poorest countries in the world, and they need a different policy offer. Because in areas like malnutrition, the current systems aren't working and need to be changed. David, What do you say and your time in politics. I think he used to confronting this argument, but it sharpened this year. What do you say to those people, particularly democracies? Who say Look, I I think that's terrible. But look at the problems we have in our own country right now, and we're spending Trillions to try and look after our own citizens Festival. You say it's a good point. You recognize the point. Then you say charity should begin at home, but it shouldn't end at home. That's the critical argument that we're making for a fraction off the investment that's being made on the domestic front in countries like the U. S or European countries, richer countries for a fraction of that investment. There is enormous suffering that can be avoided around the world. But there's also a strategic case. What we know about humanitarian need around the world today is that if it's left untended Produces political instability, but it's also contagious. It effects neighboring countries. The crisis in Venezuela is not only affecting Venezuela is affecting Columbia is affecting the rest of Latin America that the crisis in Syria is not just affecting Syria is affecting Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq But also Europe were a connected world. I mean, we should emphasize that in the year of covert that has been demonstrated, and so my plea to people would be to say yes, focus on the problems that exist in America. But don't confine yourself to that. Because unless you think Globally as well as locally. We're not going to address the problems that confront us today. Yeah, when I read your report, and we just got a few seconds left. I couldn't help but notice when you mentioned Afghanistan, Syria, the DRC. The world often just looks away from those places. It does. And the purpose of our watch list is partly for internal management at the International Rescue Committee, so that were our 13,000. Employees around the world have focused on the right things, but it's also a call and a warning to the international community. Neglect of diplomacy, the disengagement of from diplomacy, the rise of impunity in war zones around the world.

IRC President On The Humanitarian Crises To Watch In 2021

"Emergency watch listed cheer to try to alert the world to urgent humanitarian crises. David Miliband is the IRS sees president and, of course, former foreign secretary of the United Kingdom. David Thank you so much for being with us. Good morning school. Where would you urge the world to look and to and to help in the year ahead? Our watch list has looked at 85 different indicators of humanitarian need on we've identified 20 countries that represents only 10% of the world's population, but 85% of the humanitarian need in the world. The U. N says that about 235 million people depend on humanitarian aid to survive on these countries represent about 200 million off those people led by a Yemen, Afghanistan, and, as you say it's driven by this triple threat. Off conflict, the biggest driver off poverty and extreme poverty around the world. A climate stress But also Cove in their report shows that women in particular highly affected by these crises help us in the 70% of the Women who of the population in humanitarian need our women on girls. There are multiple inequalities they face before disaster strikes. But all of the evidence that we have From our years of experience as well as our impact evaluations. Studies shows that those inequalities are magnified in emergency situations. Not just the women and girls go hungry, but there's more violence against women and girls. More early marriage in emergency situations, and I think we face a real challenge here because on the one hand 200 million people sounds like an absolute mountain to climb. On the other hand, when you say, Look, there are 20 countries that constitute over 80% of this need, and they need a different kind of politics, some of it internal but also external diplomacy. We need economic help, because although there's been a rallying to enter to need on a national level in which countries the international donor community has not stepped up for the poorest countries in the world, and they need a different policy offer. Because in areas like malnutrition, the current systems aren't working and need to be changed. David, What do you say and your time in politics. I think he used to confronting this'd argument, but it sharpen this year. What do you say to those people, particularly in democracies? Who say Look, I I think that's terrible. But look at the problems we have in our own country right now, and we're spending Trillions to try and look after our own citizens. If festival you say it's a good point. You recognize the point. Then you say charity should begin at home, but it shouldn't end at home. That's the critical argument that we're making for a fraction off the investment that's being made on the domestic front in countries like the U. S or European countries, richer countries for a fraction of that investment. There is enormous suffering that can be avoided around the world. But there's also a strategic case. What we know about humanitarian need around the world today is that if it's left untended Produces political instability, but it's also contagious. It effects neighboring countries. The crisis in Venezuela is not only affecting Venezuela is affecting Columbia is affecting the rest of Latin America at the crisis in Syria is not just affecting Syria is affecting Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq but also Europe. We're a connected world. I mean, we should emphasize that in the year of covert that has been demonstrated. And so my plea to people would be to say yes, focus on the problems that exist in America. But don't confine yourself to that. Because unless you think globally as well as locally we're not going to address the problems that confront us today. When I read your report. We just got a few seconds left. I couldn't help but notice when you mentioned Afghanistan, Syria, the DRC. The world often just looks away from those places it doesn't. The purpose of our watch list is partly for internal management at the International Rescue Committee, so that were our 13,000 employees around the world of focused on the right things. It's also a call and a warning to the international community, the neglect of diplomacy, the disengagement of from diplomacy, the rise of impunity and war zones around the world. The killing of civilians and aid workers in conflict is a scar on the world that needs to be addressed. That's what we're saying needs to happen to make 2021 better than 2020.

Sugar being hungry. Yes i know bottom out and my kids want something at the same time. I kind of like lose it. I know i know exactly. What angry is yes. I yeah i i sometimes. I'm like i'm so. I'm so pissed off right now. I have no idea why and i know i'm hungry. And that's it. And it's an inability for the brain to function without a proper source of fuel breakthrough. Right exactly when we get. There's this big concern around. Oh you shouldn't eat too much if you're eating fruit and it's not eat much as you want. There's so much value. In the nutrition. The vitamins minerals in the antioxidants in it and fruit in its natural form still has fiber which slows the release of. The shot has enzymes that slow. The release short. There's a little bit of protein in all plants slows the release of the sugar. So you don't have to limit your fruit. You wanna do is not be consuming too many processed foods which most processed foods you think you're canned boxed a lotta times you're frozen stuff. That stuff has a lot of added sugar and it can contribute to the these highs and lows and one of the things that's important recognizes when we eat a lot of refined sugar. Our body has used its own stored nutrients to deal with that So a lot of refined sugar were not eating enough nutrient dense foods than were contributing to this malnutrition problems that can creep up over time. An impact we feel on a day to day basis. Right question Folks and they're you know. They're looking at controlling their blood sugar and such should they also kind of look at fruits as a way to stabilize their blood sugar or so it depends on how well they're managing it so the first thing i'll do with the diabetic client is we'll go through and identify where the processed foods the refined sugars are coming in and will eliminate those completely will also strategize on higher fiber meals and snacks. Fiber is the brake on how quickly sugars are digested into the bloodstream with diabetics. They can't manage these triggers spikes anymore. Type two diabetes is the disease state of not being able to handle these spikes anymore influenced despite body produce. Insulin cells cannot take anymore and other insulin resistant. Right so we will we wanna do is prevent the spike and give them foods at stabiliser blood sugar. So i'll do things like oatmeal and berries in the morning protein balls for snacks homemade soups. Really dense spreads like rier pumpernickel for those who can still eat Diabetics i will tell you. A lot of my diabetic clients have really great results when they eliminate gluten on their blood sugar. So yeah so. It's really and then eating the fiber eating the plants and if their sugars after the process food is gone and after the high fiber foods are added in. if when they're eating fruits they're still finding challenges with their blood sugar. We might have to cut those bath..

"To Innovation Hub and Karin Miller. I'm talking with Ian Bremmer about the political and the health of the economic trajectories of Corona virus. For about six months in here a little more, and we're looking at what lies ahead in her last few minutes. I want to ask you about what has been lost in poorer countries. This is not a view that we always get because there's just so much news in this country to focus on, but I remember talking to you months ago. And you said, for countries like India, For example, the cost of a lock down is very riel and that costs might be measured in starvation. So you have to think as government about what price you're willing to pay to control the virus. And I recently heard the Gates Foundation say malnutrition around the world. It skyrocketed around 40 million more people are in extreme poverty, Melinda Gates said. It's very, very hard to find your way out of extreme poverty once you're there How do you see this virus having reshaped poorer countries. It's deeply frustrating to see that you know, we're in a world where the only reason that people suffer the on ly reason that people have malnutrition. Is because of political feelings. It's not because of economic feelings. We have enough food globally. We have enough wealth globally to feed everyone to give everyone appropriate health care, but there are massive political failings. And that is exacerbated in the conditions of the pandemic. So in sub Saharan Africa, you don't have a lot of people getting sick from Corona virus. But you have a lot of people that are worried about bringing their kids to hospitals. And so is the consequence. Basic immunizations, vaccinations are not happening. Four kids that will, as a consequence be much more exposed to other dangerous diseases. As a second order effect of Corona virus, you have supply chain That has been hit significantly disrupted because of Corona virus, Right? I mean shipping is a problem. Chinese production is a problem. Infrastructure is a problem, and that has In turn, we in the United States. You remember that there were some limitations, and some people weren't able to find making for a period of time because you know, there were shortages in some types of food that we're being sent around because there were large numbers of cases in some of the meat processing plants, and they're very large, and they're very small numbers of you know that. It's very much just in time supply chain. So if you break one thing there are there are knock on effects. We can't get bacon. So what? But if that supply chain effect impacts you in a poor country, you suddenly can't get enough to eat prices skyrocket. You can't afford whatsit sale in your local grocer or they're out of things. Now Nutrition becomes a very serious issue and again as you've seen from Melinda Gates, who spoke quite Articulately about this end forcefully about this just just a few weeks ago. We're talking about tens of millions of people now around the world Additional people that it Bill Gates would would have told you if you'd met him any time in the last 10 years, And there was a lot of pessimism about where politics is going where the world's going and, you know, media headlines are pretty negative. He was always very appease look at how many people were taking out of poverty. Look at how we are expanding lifespans. Look at how 90% of kids around the world are getting immunized before their first year, you know, look at how we're bringing infant mortality down. He had all these stats down his favorite book. About five years ago. It was written by this wonderful Swedish demographer who recently passed away. Hans Rossman was called fat fullness, and it was this. There's pages and pages, pages and pages about just wonderful news of how humanity Increasingly globalized was ableto unlock human capital and bring better lives to people around the world. You talked to Bill Gates today? He can't say that. Because globalisation has shifted in trajectory. We're getting it more wrong. The last couple of years for humanity has actually not shown progress. In terms of well being and absolute poverty, numbers of refugees, countries that air democratic and open and free we actually haven't been bending the arc of history towards progress. One that the vaccination story is like a heart stopping one that hears the whole world focused on a vaccine. For Corona virus. But in so much of the world, so many people will die because of axe like they are not getting vaccines we actually have like we have their tested their good and people aren't getting them because you know either. Like you said. They're afraid to go to doctor or their spy chain issue or they don't have the money or whatever it is. But it's like it's incredible to think that that could cause a tremendous number of deaths. And here we are thinking about this other vaccine and then and then get back to the fact that we're working on over 100, different vaccines and we're not working together. We're not sharing data. Right. I mean, the Russians have announced their split Nick vaccine, and Putin says I gave it to my daughter, and they're not sharing any of the information about side effects, and they're rolling it out, with scientists having tested it on themselves. And not going through Phase three yet and I mean, every other epidemiologist in the world is saying, this is a disaster. This is dangerous. The Chinese saying they're testing it on their military again not appropriate for phase three trials. We have better science than that. I mean, in the United States, I will tell you the politicisation that we're seeing from the president against the head of the CDC on vaccines. Makes me more cautious about wanting to take the vaccine myself when it is available, and I am the farthest thing from an anti vaccine, but I would want to make sure That there is, you know, a consensus of medical and scientific approval for something. I'm not just going to take my government's immediate word for it Amazing that I would say something like that. Five years ago would be inconceivable for an educated American to question whether FDA approval for a vaccine would be something they would need to look into dive under that stuff of conspiracy theories and, yes, And yet we increasingly have a politicization of what is and is not a basic fact basic science around how we are dealing with this disease. That is not where we want to be. So let me have you look ahead a little bit because you mentioned China..

But the poor not able to do this. They are going to sources. Daming now with people that I come into the torch for having food because they don't have water in fuel for cooking at home. What also we're dealing with very malnourished children that are getting worse because of infectious disease related to say for it. Like a chain of factors that is. Mason escapee. Nope. Official many digest situation. And we know that children who suffer from mount nutrition that is gonna mean problems in the future. This is not something that goes away a few years. This is storing up generations of problems for them as Wailer. Yeah. We were analyzing the data after three years of of having the sentinel side monitoring of malnutrition, we can give you now the appropriate analysis to the data, and we may see me around fifty four percent of the children that have been getting into the program for four thirty two. Stunted thirty four percents even that we recovered from from acute malnutrition. I mean Gobert. For mandatory. But they don't ready stunted, and this has consequences for the knife. But even for the country story Schaaf one in three children in that programs stunted that's Susannah Refaeli from Caritas Venezuela talking about some of the effects of the economic crisis and the recent or current 'electronic electricity cuts to that country and a few days time having gay in the country of Brunei will be punished by death.

A ten year imprisonment for anyone found guilty of engaging in sexual activity with someone of the same sex while Vasile was have been in place for for such a long time. I'm not actually aware of them having been a used at such. What's about to be implemented? It is any very abhorrent. And. The quite shocking charge. Imagine in in this this is there an age. Being implemented and being used against people will pass the new laws will be the punishment of death by stoning for those convicted of taking insects between the same gender is due to be implemented on the third of April. Which means that you've got now between now and then for pressure to be put on the country to change its mind is not possible. Yes. It is only a very short timeframe in all honesty, when not particularly helpful that the government burn I will change their mind, or we can have for is that we can put as much pressure as we can on the government. And that we can I sustain this is pressure. So even if they do go ahead and be implemented on on the third of April. We're hopeful that the laws will will never be actually actually be used and preferably that they will actually be a wound back the country's absolute ruler. The Soltan has. These laws are a great achievement. Is there any indication that it's popular with the public the public in Brunei? They don't generally come out and publicly criticize anything to do with the Royal family Rollings by the by the government or other Monroe family criticism tends to be very sort of meeting in Brunei. I certainly haven't seen any widespread support for for these laws, but at the same time people out being especially vocal within Brunei, especially. They wouldn't they wouldn't be able to speak with they about this. It the LGBT community in in Brunei. They they do tend to keep a low profile, and especially since the since Cherie loss began being implemented in two thousand fourteen I have been very worried and from from contact I have within the LGBTQ community within Brunei. They told me that they hoping to sort of like to stay under the radar not get noticed and hopefully get get and just having for the best and. Sunny diwan to attract attention to themselves. I mean, you mentioned before how it's it's just completely bizarre. How this is happening in two thousand nine hundred nineteen why do you think that that we are still in the situation where you do have countries who who still believe this and think that something like this as I quoted the the rule of that is a great achievement? That question does come up quite a bit. Why why exactly is Brunei implementing these laws now? To there's a few different theories. Certainly one of the theories Sultan. He is getting on in age is being noticed that he's becoming more religious in the latter part of his life. Some people say that he wants to be he's legacy. That's one perspective. Another is that nice trying to attract a lot more in the bay of investment from stakes Brunei. Traditionally it has been a very wealthy country has has benefited from having a good oil supply. They're coming at the moment is starting to dwindle. The economy is is starting to decline. So it is also saying as perhaps way of consolidating the government's power and the power that's Matthew wolf from the Brunei projects and LGBT rights scrape speaking about Brunei's plans to impose death by stoning as a punishment for gay sex adultery from next week.

"Food in like bags from organizations that send them to them right or things like that. Or they might just have severe malnutrition to begin with and so- scurvy is very very common. Like, you kind of mentioned. It's very very common syndrome that comes along with generalized, malnutrition, right? And part of that is because since vitamin C. You can't store it in your body for very long. It's it's not one of the first things necessarily that you'll end up like dying from, but it is something that relatively early on like within a month or two of having not in a food. You can end up with scurvy of scurvy the other populations that it can happen to our lower income populations that can't afford fresh fruits and vegetables because the thing about vitamin C is that it breaks down relatively easily. So even if you're eating foods that in theory have vegetables. In them, if they are all canned foods, or they're all microwaved to oblivion then you're not actually getting any of the vitamin C that might be in those foods. So even though you're eating a can of chicken tortilla soup that has bell peppers in it, you're not getting any of that vitamin c from those Bill peppers. And that's an actual real case that I found in Houston of a woman who was eating only chicken tortilla soup to try and lose weight and she ended up with scurvy diagnosed in Houston couple years ago, trying to wait. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. And so so there's kind of we've already hit on to population. Just one kind of soup one soup. Did she say why she chose that particular soup? What brand quote chicken soup? So I got for you. Anyways. Yeah. Eat your vegetables. Yeah. I mean, that's sort of the the long and short of it. Yes. We can happen in low income populations. It can happen in displaced populations. It can happen. Also in populations maybe with mental illnesses who aren't eating who maybe who aren't eating at all who or who aren't eating fresh, fruits and vegetables. Maybe they're only eating toast, or they're only drinking something or whatever. Right. Yes. There are definitely still populations both in this country in every country. Definitely is still an issue. It still happens. The only numbers that I saw some articles claimed that the overall rates of scurvy or of vitamin c deficiency rather not of scurvy necessarily could be anywhere from two percent or seven percent in countries like the US to up to forty five percent in in other countries and the other population. In that it can happen to is children whether because they're very picky eaters, or because they also don't have access to foods that are fresh. I also read something speaking populations bachelor scurvy. Was some attorney that was used frequently. And this was to refer to old older men, lived alone or widower scurvy who lived alone, and this was largely in like the early nineteen hundreds and just did not need any fresh food. They just eight. Yeah. Yeah. It definitely is an older populations are especially at risk for sure because they might not be eating much at all..
