"I don't know if it's going to be as bad as south australia. Because it's like the worst worst. They're under one hundred deaths in south the whole the whole country. Wow so we can get into hundred deaths one hundred dole contender hundred so that we can get into los angeles as locking down now till further notice. Apparently we'll get to that. But first larry in indiana. You're on free talk. Live larry fight-back doing now. So i'll be watching you guys in the studio there but what the deal is. Why would you get a vaccine right. And then you're going to get the people that are doing. After i get the people in the nursing homes that you're trying to keep away from colbert. The vaccine is a former kobe. And then when some eighty all persons in home everybody starts dying. They're going to say we need more restrictions. Then they're to say hey. All medical people are dan too. So that's just more restrictions. I think i figured out now. I think i figured it out. Now you guys there are the burden the government and they want us on our knees because they're chicken the star of us right now you remember crystallized when the nazis burned all businesses. This is the lead up very ben. Virtually burning down. I this case. They don't even have to burn the businesses. they're getting business owners to just walk away the lead them for for the way they've got tents up all around the city and the next thing that's coming you can use your ten after you spend ten thousand dollars to get the unions and everything. So they're just pulling people along. I've seen it done in business. I've seen it before you get your check and that's going gonna happen. So they'll just trying a yellow To get you into position where you step anything because the next thing they'll say we're turning in or not all now Then you're gonna get a lot of stuff since they got everybody on birth. The virtual internet and all the shipping companies are making that money amazon. That everybody's making money. They're trying to change the paradigm. They're just gonna murder a bunch of people you know on the we had wars that would knock all ten twelve million people at a time. That's not happening anymore. Guy's famine and other things is they to play yet in the united states. We don't get worse housing. The supply chain. They've empty supply chain by well. I don't know if that's true. I mean there's still products on the shelves. It what they want to have like all leftovers from the slaughterhouse. Yeah i mean some some supplies are there have you. Have you seen the lines in the food banks. Twenty five thousand families. yeah i so. I got famine. How bad visit to get before. You're willing to be somewhere other than where you are right. Now i'm a cat fight to save what i've got now because i'm doing Protest in indianapolis doing protests. My do general. But the thing about it is. I'm gonna do some more summer's on youtube. That's why i bought the app on loan to you until i start a close to the internet. Downright look into library coin because you is gonna shut you down to check it out. Library is pretty great ally berry coin. We'll let you speak l. b. r. y. Dot com is our website. Larry thank you for the call tonight. I appreciate you can't call it famine yet. Because if you'd like for instance look at venezuela where the the government gang there has been destroying the economy through dramatically inflating the the currency there among other socialistic programs. That they're involved in and it has just been a decline a tremendous decline over the last decade especially over the last several years. And you know they're still food in venezuela just they're skipping meals and so there definitely hungry. There's probably starvation is is close. Invite a girl. There were even even ten years ago. People were starving to death in venezuela. They they had it was. It was several years ago that they broke into the zoo in karachi. Eight all of the animals. And i've seen footage of people literally fighting with dogs in the streets over garbage. It's bad and that's what i would say is getting closer to a famine situation here in the united states. Americans are still pretty fat and pretty happy in venezuela over the last few years. They've been Charting people's weight so the average weight of you know the average venezuelan has been just dropping pounds over the last few years. And it's like they're they're not gonna have anything left to lose at at some point so we're not to that point yet but that's what we're going towards with continued inflation and continued economic when people start missing meals. They'll stop trusting the government. Maybe hopefully i have. There's a there's a report or some research done by the lancet that shows two hundred sixty. Five million people expected to be thrown into severe food insecurity as a result of the lockdown. So food insecurity would be not knowing where your next meal's going to come right but we also have something where the simpson was that in the united states that while. That's that's close. Yeah that would be. That would be several out of the us worldwide. But i think that number is way too. Yeah i would agree. Actually i think i think it is to the lancet. But there's also research showing that one hundred and twenty five thousand. Children are expected to die for malnutrition as a result of the lockdowns. And i would say that number is extremely conservative. judge the lockdowns. I mean in china. That was one of the first things that really made me wonder is. They wouldn't let the farmers bring their food to market. And it's like okay. Even if people are sick they got to eat. So why won't you let your farmers bring the food to market. Same thing is the thing that i think has happened. Although the stores are not particularly suffering my understanding is that the supply chain okay. Usually there's food. In warehouses distributors have it wholesalers. Have it my understanding is that those supplies are very thin. Now certain things that are definitely thin especially look at toilet paper. It's still kinda hard to find that out there. We wanted to take over and have the people unable to fight back. Eight fifty five four hundred fifty free like freedom.

"The show, we are talking about mold exposure and how mold on Michael toxins which are by products of mold. Affect our gut health and we really started getting into that on the on the last segment. We were talking about how it leads to a leaky gut. And The next progression of that is how This stuff can actually lead to weight loss and malnutrition. And we believe it or not. We see a lot of people in our office that are malnourished and we talk on this show quite a bit about how the entire country is over fed undernourished. We say that a lot. We just aren't able to extract the nutrients from food. The food doesn't have as many nutrients and is used to. We eat a lot of processed packaged crap that is a food product, but not really food. That's right. I want to point out. I mean, because you didn't mention We also just certainly a symptom, but you don't have to have weight loss to be malnourished, and I think it's a really important point know that We actually see Ah lot more people that are over fed undernourished that are Overweight right then we see ones that are underweight. We just underweight is not one that we see a lot in our office. But when we do it really perks up. Our antennas is like okay, what's causing this person to lose weight and this is one of this is one of the routes that needs to be investigated. It's especially because of how these mycotoxins work on the gut. So in our intestines, we have these little things called Villa and these little Ville. I Our little finger like projections that come out into the into the Lumen or the into the middle of the small intestine. What they're really there for is to increase our surface area and Tio help us extract nutrients and absorb things from our food. That's what they do. And they're just We just have to get more surface area. This is how we end up with us. You know our gut having the surface area of of about a tennis court and is because of these little ville I these little things that project out these finger like projections that go out into the Into the intestine. Man. So what these Michael toxins do is they damage this ville? I right. They When they damage this villa. They shortened the villain, so you have less. Surface area, And as soon as you have less surface area, you're increasing your risk of mountain malnutrition. You're not going to absorb all the things that you have, and this is one of the things You ever see us? You know if you come to see us, or you seen any lectures that we give, I draw this a lot of what healthy intestinal barrier looks like. And then what? Damaged leaking intestinal barrier looks like and how the little ville I that project out, get shorter and damaged and in some cases are completely gone. There's some gut conditions where the villa in areas and patches of the gut are basically gone. They're not existent. When that happens, you just can't get the nutrients back out of your food. And so There. There are things that take place with these Michael toxins and we talked, talked earlier about this Michael Toxin Don win for short. It's a It's a very specific one. There are these things in our intestines called intestines called Nutrient transporters. Therein the G I tract and I could give you the names of these things, but they're different ones that this don stuff. It blocks these nutrient transporters. And when you block these nutrient transporters you stop are the body's ability to absorb carbohydrates. And when that happens that can promote Cibo are small, intestinal bacterial overgrowth When we start these things Now we start into the whole potential for malnutrition and eventually weight loss. If this goes on long enough, and you're just malnourished long enough eventually. You're you're going to have weight loss. Are we going to see you before you have weight loss hopefully Right. Hopefully there's enough of these other problems that you're complaining of that you come to see us because nobody else is helping you because they're not even acknowledging that that Michael toxins or mold exposure exists. Right. This is one of the things that we that we look for. And one of things that Really matters and you'll see when we When you run a stool test, you'll see things like Cibo. You'll see these bacteria completely out of balance. It points in the direction of okay with all of these other things that we have going on all these other symptoms that are out there that you could be complaining of that deal with mold exposure. That really gives us an indicator to say OK, we need we need to investigate this whole mo mold and find out if you're being exposed if you're currently being exposed and Let's done start to remedy this stuff. Let's give you things that we can that can help your body heal itself and recover from the exposure. Another thing that does is It increases oxidative damage and causes free radicals and so oxidative damage. The easiest way to understand what oxidative damage is, is just imagine, like cannon balls hitting your cell walls. And just blowing them up and damaging the cells. That's what oxidative damage is. And so when you have Michael toxins you require a much higher level of antioxidants. Tio, help us fight this free, radical damage. And there are a lot of different ways that we get antioxidants. Things like vitamin C vitamin E awful. A poet acid Bluetooth. I own thes air all antioxidants that can help decrease free radical damage. But that's what they do. And this once they start damaging the cells again, you start decreasing your body's ability to absorb the.

"Hello and welcome back everybody I had a lovely week in Cornwall I. Actually Went Down Because my sister tied the knot with her brand new partner I. It was really really small ceremony I was really impressed. It was very strict guidelines and who can enter. The registry. The department and what is called the registry anyway. So it was very strict on if four people were allowed in. So I had a the honor of being the witness for my sister, and then we had a really small garden party I. Think it was like ten adults and a few kids my children, of course in amongst that group. So we had a lovely time and return to London where it's really hot and of course, during my holiday in Cornwall I. was invited by Channel Five. To comment on in childhood malnutrition, and of course, I was always aware that the new childhood obesity strategy was out but it had to turn it down because my family were really wanted me to have the laptop off. So I didn't get the chance to. Go on TV or whatever share. So I thought I would record an episode on some tips on how to work with your child. If you are worried that they are overweight or obese these because I know this is a really emotive topic I mean I can even see that amongst dietitians and other than nutrition professionals or doctors we're all divided we all have. Dif- way different boards and we have different ways that would like to approach it and deal with it but I guess the stats don't lie. The numbers speak for themselves. As so. If. It's something that worries you and you also have family history of diabetes or heart conditions or any other health problems and you would like to work with your child. To bring their way down in more home in the healthy range or wait that feels good for your child. Then I'm going to share a few tips with you in this podcast episode and I hope that it will be helpful for you. Now as always if you lie to work with me, you can book a coil. It's a free initial telephone call where I can take you through my nutrition packages and coaching programs so that you can decide if it's a might fit for you. Now I just want to put out. I'm not judgmental Dietitian at all. I was an overweight teenager I. Remember you know my parents always valued education. So my dad is a veterinary surgeon, for example. So he really valued education although my parents you know my mom now has a gym membership. and. They did. There are very conscious about healthy eating but they weren't really sporty family I remember playing badminton and Netball at high school but apart from that as a kid I. used to play in the garden and things like that my parents enjoyed walking. So we did lot to wargame. But apart from that, we didn't really want really an active family. We'd be interested in sport it was more about. I did a lot of reading rowing up and painting and things like that. But apart from that, there wasn't a lot of focus on sports which would have really liked because they're held the choices at herb very nutritious growing up. was never a doubt about that but I could have done with more exercise as a teenager. Big is clearly there is a genetic predisposition. To being a little overweight and so when I was sixteen I to Cobb running because I was really unhappy with the. My Body Fluctuate I. Didn't like the way I looked I don't think I've was away but I can't remember actually I am pretty sure I was overweight at one stage and so I started running I started reading a lot about nutrition and that's how I became really interested in this area. But of course, you know being a teenager of course. I felt for some of the nutrition nonsense like I did a two day eat only fruit detox type plans and I remember on was passing out in a aerobic exercise class type thing in an inner sensible enough not to return to something like that. But I can appreciate that today you are young children particularly young adolescents. They have access to a wide range of information. I didn't have social media I just googled or read magazines for. Weight loss and nutrition advice. But today there is just so much information out there and is really really hard. If you are a young adult or you have young children, it's really hard to sort of tease out fact from fiction. And it's a really really emotive topic and I completely understand what is like to be overweight and yes, you can have held. In you know you can be healthy adult or healthy child. For example in New Zealand, we have the Maori, population and population from. The Fiji Islands or someone population you know they're naturally. They have larger bodies, but they also have a higher. Muscle mass, and so we allowed a higher cutoff for their BMI which meant that you know we weren't too worried that they were particularly larger. However, some of these groups could also be at higher risk of being obese or overweight, but with health. Conditions associated with that. So kidney problems diabetes is a big one isn't it and problems of the heart and things like that

The Year Without a Summer

"The heat of summer is well and truly here in the Northern Hemisphere, the hot humid days just won't let up and living in new. York City I continue to be frustrated that central air conditioning is not as ubiquitous in homes and businesses, as it is in most parts of the southern United States where I grew up. Then, of course, it's always been substantially hotter in those southern states, although with climate change, the northeast is heating up more and more, but that does make me think sometimes. How the heck did people survive before? Joining especially in those very hot climates, farmers ALMANAC A few insights nothing to mind blowing people would take day trips to swing holes or up. To cooler weather, they kept windows and doors shut at midday to keep out hot air and delayed cooking or baking. Until the evening they ate refreshing. Cool treats and was available in homes, blue fans across blocks of ice, the biggest factor most likely however was it simply wasn't as hot as it is now at least in terms of extremes, quoting farmers, Almanac, the extra ordinarily hot summers that are commonplace today were virtually unheard of fifty to one hundred years ago in fact, seven of the top ten coolest, US summers on record occurred nineteen, hundred and nineteen fifty and quotes. There was one year however over two centuries ago now that it was a lot cooler. Eighteen Sixteen Aka the year without a summer quoting farmers. ALMANAC referred to by many names, including the poverty year and eighteen hundred and froze to death, the year eighteen sixteen was literally a year without a summer across much of the northern hemisphere throughout not only North America, but also northern Europe and parts of Asia in exceptionally cold summer, featuring killing frosts in July in August crippled food production crop failures in food shortages were. Were so widespread that rioting and looting became common in the United Kingdom and France on this side of the Atlantic. Many residents of New England and the Canadian Maritimes froze to death, starved, or suffered from severe malnutrition, as storms, bringing foot, or more of snow, hit hard during May and June. Many others from the region pulled up stakes and move to western New York in the Mid West where the cold was less severe. In fact, the year without a summer is now believed to have been one major catalyst in the westward expansion of the United States and quotes Nicole may have been less severe in the southern and Western us, but it was still highly unusual on July fourth eighteen sixteen. It was forty six degrees Fahrenheit in Savannah Georgia. For the record this year on July fourth and Savannah, it was ninety degrees. So. Why did this happen? It was due to one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history Indonesia's Tamboura. The volcano erupted on April Fifth Eighteen fifteen, continuing to up for a week and killing nearly all of the twelve thousand residents of Tim, Bora as well as almost all plants in animal life on the island, quoting the Paris review, countless tons of volcanic. Volcanic ash circulated in the upper atmosphere for years after the events blocked out sunlight and lowering average surface temperatures globally in parts, of North, America Europe temperatures dropped by more than eighteen degrees. Fahrenheit there was snow in New England July and dark rain clouds swept over Europe throughout the summer months in Hungary reports of Brown snowfall, tainted by volcanic ash and quotes. Understandably many thought the world was ending that the sun was dying. It's really fascinating. Though is some of the cultural ripples that this massive event caused. You may be familiar with the story of how Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley was inspired to write Frankenstein as part of a spooky storytelling challenge when she percy shelley and Lord Byron and friends were holed up in a villa in Geneva. One stormy summer turns out. It was this dark, thunderous apocalyptic. Apocalyptic summer of eighteen sixteen. The crew had gone to Geneva, both to ride out the unusually rainy summer, but also to escape their various dramas in England, being stuck indoors for so much of their trip Lord. Byron challenged them all to write ghost stories to entertain one. Another Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein which would set the stage for all of science fiction to come? Also among the Geneva Villa guests was Lord Byron's personal physician Dr John Polidori. Who wrote short story for the challenge called the vampire, and this story is often credited with the birth of the Modern Vampire Romance. But those genre defining publications aren't the only cultural institutions to come out of the summer last year of Eighteen, sixteen among the mini shortages across Europe was a crucial shortage of oats which led to the starvation and deaths of countless humans and livestock, including at least ten thousand horses, not counting how many were also slaughtered to save money or become dinner German? Baron Carl Dreyer's and inventor in student of mathematics started trying to design a man powered form of transportation, while historians agree that he was inspired by the weather based os shortage. He also saw a need for an alternative to horses as crucial for war. Quoting the Paris review his first designs for human powered transportation involved complex conveyor belt, driven four wheeled vehicles, but raises breakthrough came when he turned his thoughts to balance drawing on his experiences, skating on ice ponds drains, put his faith in the power momentum and front wheel, steering to keep a two wheel vehicle rate. This idea became his love, machine or running machine and quotes, and this running machine would become the modern day bicycle. All of this makes me think about how many things will change or be invented from this moment that we're living through. And of course there's a lot of things we're already seen, and we're likely to continue to see some big cultural shift, but like who, out there is writing the next genre defining novel that people will still be reading two centuries later. Who's inventing something that will be innovated on for decades before becoming a ubiquitous ordinary mode of transportation. Maybe won't be those types of things specifically, but there are surely ideas happening and things being created that we won't realize the impact of for decades

"malnutrition" Discussed on The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.

"That you could spend on nutritious extreme farmers market your bikes, fruits and vegetables number two. That money goes to farmers. Yeah, that was the key here. This is how you acting work. Both sides of the aisle you're. Inside and take care of Liberals, one of feet on revealed, but then you actually are making sure you're getting money to rural communities in farming commutes, because otherwise that money spent in a in a supermarket where it goes to a large company. Is a way to take billions of dollars and move them into. So how many? How mean billions of much money? How much money of the Food Stamp Program Goes Towards Double Bucks. Do you have a sense and that actually small amount of money and it's public partnership I believe I believe that the. Bill introduced in two hundred million dollars. I think in the. So it's only Lectoure, Marino's. Two, hundred million out of seventy, five billion a year. or point well taken yet. So one of the things you focus on just interesting is not just a racing hunger through giving calories, but making sure people have nutritionally dense food. Can you talk about that. Well again this is. What people have nutritionally dense foods you got. My experiences that people who have limited means. They WANNA buy Junkie. They actually preferred by nutritious who they just have to make. The dollars stretch as much as possible. And so again, how do you make it through? His speak more more, accessible or floral? Accessible meaning there are places in the inner city, but also places in rural areas where you have to travel pretty far to get to supermarket, Yellen is next and so so there's the accessibility issue, and there's the affordability issue, and so how do you make that work together you know. How do you do it? Through subsidized fruits vegetables? Maybe not A. can you do it through actually research and development, so those farmers can actually get. Your Studies. In data in information on how to grow more fruits and vegetables on the same acreage. So if you're producing more, the price will come down, but you're also selling one The other thing that I think is critically or is nutrition you notice. If you start at an early age teaching kids about nutrition last a lifetime and so making sure that nutritious food make sure that there's a system in this is in the in the. Wasn't healthy hundred kids at making sure that there is money so farmers can get some directly into full since of fruits and vegetables this full system, so, but here's something that's missing. Most schools are actually Oakland when especially here in the Northeast Ryan. When? Farmers are producing most of their foods schools out of sessions. Most most cafeterias no longer processed food. They only take food in and reheat it. That's right. We need to actually create a system a regional distribution where food come from a farm and get processed laissez process. I mean minimally processed meaning Dayton Peace Blanche Ingham taking and blanche in your carrots and having fresh food, fresh fruits vegetables now that can be frozen and ready for years. Look frozen. We trained through there, but now you're actually taken the food from farm. You have that processing a source, and then it goes into the school system. Is crucially important, because if you get kids contrition yet early on. It'll stay with them for like plus. Studied shown that kids then introduced those foods to their Eric. Parents here is true or Horton so. Also teaching about nutrition in school. We don't do that. We don't teach. Medical School how many classes on attrition you have mostly about scurvy and rickets and. Attrition? Albany Ellen Ellen. Things that you see in your practice. That can be cured if some actually had better diet most things most. I mean chronic disease is predominantly caused by what we eat and it's mostly cured by what we so here's suppleme-. Congress. Size out care about how you lower healthcare costs. As your answer, yeah, except they don't. They don't connect the dots. Tom Between. We're the nanny state and tell people how to Tristesse. Yeah, and so, but this is how you do it, so we spent two billion dollars year on healthcare costs, and everyone wants to make make the company added. The has come down, obviously pharmaceutical. Sure, but how do you make people healthy, so they don't need that intervention? Actually the budget for Medicare is one point three trillion. A Lot, and then you count all the other healthcare programs in government. It's about sixty percent of our total healthcare costs, but now we have to make sure that you'll hit for health. And so snap doesn't go far enough now and just kind of gets you buy. In fact, most families run out of snap. You know three weeks since the month. Also. Most. Families who are on snap have at least one member of the family working fulltime. Dos Nat also you. It also busted midst around snap. People believe that you know people just using the system most people most families are only unsnapped for about eight months. also a single buying adults. With no dependents otherwise known as bots in. They can only receive snap three months at three years. Also, most people don't know if you're a college student. You cannot receive snap unless you were twenty hours a week. Is Crazy and college campuses. There's there's Food Pantries opening up on college campus because kids go to school, maybe the first family to go to college, they barely have enough money to get to the college. They don't have enough money for for a meal plan. Kids hungry when you're hungry. You can't learn to staggering amount of. Hunger on campuses talking about that I think most people don't realize. College kids who you think of as fairly middle-class off, actually are hungry. And what happened close college campuses? So what happened housing? The kids school, so they didn't have housing anymore and it couldn't eat anymore. It's so. So, much of what else is country? A Nation can be George Newton. Get people. Eat Healthier, but the only way to get people to eat healthier is getting the dollars. They need healthier. So when one of the issues it is really talked about a lot is hungry and it's it's really often the poor but many of those the fifty million food insecure are mostly Black Latino native American. I and they're really poor anyways. Yes, yes, yes, and they're disproportionately affected by krona virus And and its whole issue of systemic racism has obtained grazes and play a role. In both issues around food, insecurity and hunger as well as the farm and food workers I think it's two subjects are wanted to get into. Look it's. It's it's pretty easy. Systemic racism has. Disproportionately affected black communities where they don't have wealth, and they don't have wealth built up over over generations because they weren't allowed to own property they were promised for years, they never got that and then when they moved up north. To places like Chicago that were their redline, we couldn't get mortgage. And so how do you build up? Wealth and families through property assumes through homeownership, and so also that end you know the constant sort of push on wages, and so of course it It's free easy to understand how it affects.

"We went to why. Mine SET UP Area and then. When immediately with an officer. About five of US WE WIN Intelligence Reconnaissance Section of our unit and we went right to Putin. And that the day that I was to discover. What had really been going on. In Europe under the Nazis. Because I walk through the gates. And I saw. Walking dead people. Seriously walking did. And just looking at these people who were skin and bone. and. Dressed in those Pajama type uniforms hits, clean, shaved. Feel with source. Malnutrition. And here they were coming towards us. Making, all kinds of Statements than using their own language and it was very difficult for me to comprehend. What was going on? I just looked at this amazement. and. said to myself Oh. My God, you know who these people. What they done. What was their crime? You know it's hard for me to try to. Understand why anybody could have been treated this way I don't care what they had done. And I didn't have any way of thinking putting a handle on it. No frame of Reference I was only twenty. So this young man who spoke English. Explain to us the composition. Of this place that these people were Jews and Gypsies. They were. Trade Unionists Communists and homosexuals and togas witnesses. There are some Catholics. There was some the head been some. Mental defective, but they will gone. What's the litany of groups names of groups saying that these people had been incarcerated here because they. If I could use the term before they weren't good enough. And they have been put here for one purpose and that was to be worked until they. Died starved until they've done. I walked around to camp. I went to a barry. I opened the door. I wanted to go in, but the stench came out. And there's no way in the world I was going to get through that overpowering order. So I just stood there and I looked down on the bottom bunk right near the door and it was a man there. He was skin and bone. He was on. Someone like a Palette of dirty. Filthy rags. And he just could barely turn his head. And look up at me and I. I looked into his face into that skeletal face with those deep set eyes would. I can't forget. But he. He said nothing I said nothing to him. Were part of an intelligence team in your outfit. There was an officer. Had the officer been briefed. Had the intelligence team been told anything? I can't speak for the officers. We didn't communicate that well I'll be very frank with you so if they knew I didn't know so. It was complete. Absolute shock surprise when when you got totent-. Totally. Had I've been told I doubt if I had in my mind's eye envisioned. Anything is horrible. That's what I saw. Terms like Auschwitz and Bergen Belsen Madonna and places like that. Not We're not known to you. I had no idea that those places existed. Later, Much later I begin to hear of names of places. And realize that there was more than just can ball. That many many many. Buchen balls different names all over Europe. Russia. That's what boggles the mind to think. That's a group in society can organize and do it in a systematic way such. A program. To remove from the world, a whole group of people. And? Any others that didn't see they didn't think were worthy. And it just. To me, that was just a little bit much. I couldn't put a handle on that, but I saw what I saw. In the camp. But the. Place where they tortured people bloodstains all around and the instruments of torture their. The building where they had all parts of the human anatomy. Stored as a result of their experience. Really labeled and put in jars. And I saw the. Bodies all around. So, the closing of little children but I never saw any children in that game. I saw the clothing. Piled up. Deep Piles. Had all the German military left, and all the guards left. Those got away. I think maybe a few might have been captured. I did see one man. He was being beaten by the inmates. They wanted us to come and join 'em. Of course we didn't but. Was My understanding that the death. I'm not sitting in judgment. Because I didn't walk into issues. I imagine my voice should have been raised and say no. That's not the way but. I regret to this day that I didn't. I went into that crematorium. Ovens. Six! I looked into one. I saw that the remains there. The ashes the bones. Well. This summer said that they took the ashes sometimes and use it as fertilizer. Can you imagine that? To use. The ashes of human beings for fertilizer on fields to grow some crops that you would need. To promote the war effort. I. You know I saw all of these things probably more than I can't remember. I came out of this sick to the stomach. And I went to the tweet. And we all went back to camp on the board of trucks in silence. Nobody said anything.

Wisconsin Supreme Court strikes down Wisconsin's stay-at-home order that closed businesses to limit spread of coronavirus

"A piece of audio from a state Supreme Court justice this was from esquire magazine in discussing the governor's order to stay at home the assistant Attorney General Colin Ross appeared to be rethinking his career choice Bradley the Supreme Court justice went full on Glenn Beck never go full on Glenn back this is what the press called full on Glenn back listen to this judge my question for you is where in the constitution to the people of Wisconsin confer a sorority on the singles on elected cabinet secretary to compel almost six million people to stay at home and close their businesses and face imprisonment if they don't comply with no input from the legislature without the consent of the people isn't it the very definition of tyranny for one person to order people to be imprisoned for going to work among other ordinarily lawful activities where does the constitution say that's permissible council one of the bravest guys and the guy who appointed her to the Supreme Court successful governor economic education healthcare reformer Scott Walker joins us now governor how are you Sir Eglin even better today because of the Supreme Court yesterday sure okay so the Supreme Court yesterday in Wisconsin struck down the stay at home order what does that mean well there was no stay so it means technically anyone anywhere in the state of Wisconsin could be opened the one caveat to that is welcome to the home rule states so there are still the ability of local jurisdiction so a handful of communities city Milwaukee city of R. we're seeing a Dane county or state capitals at all very Liberal Democrat areas there governor should be there mayors and or account executives issued similar orders to what the governor's administration will done but for everybody else it means technically any retail establishment or whatever's open last night around the state there are other places out there although and I heard the tail end of year your last segment in the end the governor I've said for weeks the government can get out of the way but ultimately the market will determine when businesses reopen when employees feel safe to come back in when the when customers ultimately come back as well but it the first step is getting the government out of the way so Z. the get the new governor the guy who I think replaced you it had issued the stay at home order he said yesterday last night on CNN this puts our state in the chaos now we have no plan no protections for the people when you have more people in a small space I don't care if it's bars restaurants or the home you're going to be able to spread the virus today thanks to the Republican legislators convinced for Supreme Court justices not to look at the law but look at their political careers I guess it's a bad day for Wisconsin because now it's the wild west commented when it's it's like it's like they've suspended common sense not only in his statement but not others across the country we see this over and over again we've been operating for nearly two months now with the threat of this coronavirus in every time anyone goes in a grocery store every time someone goes into a pharmacy every time someone goes to the hardware store every time someone shows up in a in a manufacturing plant that is deemed essential by the government they've been able to do that overwhelmingly across the country safely so to me it just defies common sense that now certainly since the so called nonessential businesses can open finally because those justices actually upheld the law they did exactly opposite what he said they actually upheld the law now does that mean the people who've been operating safe we're certainly going to go crazy and and not use the same watching the done before of course not you know here here's here's the thing first of all I think you guys had the election when every but when nobody knew what was gonna happen and with that it shows that no there was no spread to from you guys holding L. holding the election which quite honestly at the time I would have found surprising but there was no problem for holding the election yeah I guess the the governor didn't learn his lesson from that one and when did we go from a let's not overwhelm the system let's not overwhelm hospitals and doctors and the nurses let's flatten the curve to nobody's going out until everybody is safe yeah it it's it's the flat occur versus now we have to find a cure before anyone can set foot out there the logic I went back and looked two months ago yesterday I wrote a piece on Facebook about how we need to be rational we needed to follow the guidelines we probably shouldn't have Dick's sporting events or concerts for awhile so we could figure this out but that we could do these things without shutting down the economy we just had to use our common sense we had to be purposeful interactions to make sure we're safe the same is true today over two months we flatten the curve but do you still have government officials whose immediately seem like they're hiding under their beds open a guide somehow this will just go away it's not going away it's not going to change anytime soon and if we don't win this year register Connie devastate but think of all the people across America who missed out on doctor's visits in clinics and other checkups who missed out on early detection I mean this is literally a life threatening issue even when it comes to re opening the economy so governor do you really believe that these people are hiding under their beds or is there something else involved I mean there is we have to balance things and that is what a leader does he gets advice from the FAO cheese and they save Valjean just tell me about the health effects and then somebody else has to advise is didn't tell me just about the economic effects and then I have to make choices as a leader on what we do we are now looking at a group of people in Washington and it seems to be falling on party lines that they for some reason we just don't want to open the economy and no one is talking about the deadly effects of America going down the drain or going into a deep depression not only the affects financially but the effects of health and welfare all over the globe millions could die because we go down it even amazing the group that are not aligned with that don't normally reference but even a United Nations report recently just this week showed that grave concerns about massive I mean we're talking crippling poverty around the world because of the economic effects here in their point was that this will actually have a much larger devastating impact on the Taliban casualties because of malnutrition because of the depression because of suicide because of all sorts of issues I think it's a combination of summer parade and some have an agenda when I look at Nancy Pelosi's and we could talk all day about her ridiculous three trillion dollar bill that's out there but one of the things I think's been ignored about what you did put out this week is they've got a provision that would extend the federal unemployment enhanced benefits till January one that tells me Democrats believe our whole some have an agenda that they want the economy not to open until after the start of the year which conveniently happens to be after the presidential election I I got to say if you're an American not a Republican not a Democrat now to conserve not a liberal but Americans that should scare the crap idea we should be doing something about it so do you think that the American people are I mean I think that my father used to say there is no such thing as bad it doesn't it nothing is bad it's depends on how you react to it that will make it a bad thing in your life for good thing you can go to prison for robbing a bank that's not bad that is something that you could use now to reforge yourself and and become better the corona virus I think has helped a lot of people get perspective on their life it is showing us that we need family and shows us that you know this arguing back and forth with the politics is really the Washington doesn't have the power we have the power we could use this to wake up on the bill of rights etcetera etcetera or we will allow it to destroy us do you think the American people are waking up on both sides of the aisle and saying wait a minute wait a minute these essential bill of rights liberties are really important I I do have some more slowly than others but but I do think they're waking up yesterday's ruling in the Wisconsin Supreme Court was a good step in the right direction because as I said after the ruling came out you know though okay holding the rule of law is important even in an emergency it's an important event and I'm optimistic it as frustrated as I am as as challenging as times are I think about American particular country that started out in defeating the greatest military power at the time who overcame a civil war that would have torn apart just to any other country in the world you ever came to me two world wars took on nine eleven were Americans and were country based on freedom and as long as we cherish those freedoms and liberties even in times like this I have no doubt we can overcome anything the part of that means of free will and the ability to engage in free enterprise that's something that I think it's fundamentally a part of who we are it's what king Solomon talked about finding joy in your labor I often say nobody signed by my high school yearbook saying good luck becoming it depend on the government we all no matter who we can where we come from what we look like we all in our hearts we want to work we want to find join our labor we need to get the government on lease and get it out of the way so that we can go back to work and and restore

The dummy mission that they would be lifted up to Heaven on October Twenty Eighth Nineteen ninety-two in preparation for the rapture lease followers took drastic action. They sold homes quit jobs and carried out abortions a few years before thousands of policemen stationed themselves outside the dummy mission church Lee. Chang Rim published his book getting close to the end in it. He predicted that angels would help fairy over a hundred thousand people to heaven at midnight on October. Twenty eighth the nonbelievers on the other hand would have to suffer. Through seven painful years of tribulation lease description of the rapture was taken straight from the Bible's book of revelation as for the data the supposed event Lee readily divulge that it came from the vision of a sixteen year old yet. Despite its juvenile origins lease prophecies soon garnered him a large following and by nineteen ninety two. He headed over three hundred churches and had thousands of Followers Korea. New York and Los Angeles the effect of lease rapture prediction on his followers around the globe was immediate and drastic in Los Angeles of thirty six year. Old Korean American man fasted for over forty days. He allegedly wanted to be pure in time for the rapture instead. He died of malnutrition one month before the prophecy date. Another one of Lee's Korean followers was seven months pregnant. Despite having tried for years to conceive the woman decided to abort the pregnancy because she believed it was impossible for pregnant woman to be raptured into heaven. In addition to those tragedies four of lease followers simply were unable to wait for the rapture so they committed suicide before the predicted date. All these events forced the South Korean government to recognize that the dummy mission was a dangerous cult. In the interest of hamstringing. The movement police officials began looking until leader. Lee Chang rim. It wasn't long before they discovered that he was bilking his followers of hundreds of thousands of dollars in response they charged with fraud and arrested him. If the police believed leaves incarceration would cause his followers to lose faith in his doomsday prediction. They soon discovered that they were wrong on October. Twenty eighth despite the arrest of their leader a thousand members of dummy mission walked inside their church in Seoul and began preparing for the rapture as journalists riot. Police and detectives gathered outside. The members waited for midnight to strike when it finally did. No angels descended outside. The police waited wondering if they would have to break into the church. In order to prevent a mass suicide fortunately no such members were required. Twelve ten am a teenage boy stuck his head out of one of the churches windows and yelled out. Nothing is happening. According to a Los Angeles Times article written by journalist Teresa Watanabe Bay eight minutes after the boys declaration two girls peaked out of the same window and told reporters. They believed in the rapture. Anyway they added however that their parents were inside crying in despair because they had not been lifted away in the aftermath of the day that the world failed to end. The members of dummy mission disbanded. Then they apologized to the nation as for Lee during the course of their investigation. The police discovered he used his followers funds to buy bonds and despite the fact that Li told his followers the world would end October. The bonds He'd purchased were set to mature the following month. Either Lee always knew he was lying or he believed one could collect on bond dividends even in the

When Bryant was on campus in February? He spoke about recipes in the ways. They offer a reclamation resistance but he also shared about how in food justice work we can often forget. Recipes are about enjoyment to. That's why his newest cookbook. Vegetable Kingdom has song recommendations for what to listen to while you make each dish through his activism award-winning Cookbooks. And love for the history of black. Africa communities. Brian Wonderful guest to close our series. I'm also excited to say that. This episode was collaborative.

It's a feeling that you're connected to something larger to a people to a story that even in these messed up times where people across the food system and society at large are facing extreme pressures never before we can still find ways to come together. Hi Brian Hagan how are you? I'm good how you doing really well. Thanks for making time in your busy schedule for people who don't know you and your story. Can You tell folks?

F- elect those two separate questions. And I don't know if it was necessarily a plant based I but I like to think that the Diet egg I grew up eating was Largely Vegetable base or you could say vegetable forward. It's because I spent Well it's because that was just something family valued I come from a family of farmers and my grandparents Migrated from the rule south to Memphis where I grew up and they brought with them. Those traditions of growing food and they're very knowledge and you know just the understanding that it's important that you be in charge of producing the food for yourself and your family and so you know that was something that my grandparents passed on most of their kids and they had gardens and spent a lot of time in my paternal grandfather's garden when I was growing up. And I call it a garden but it's more like urban farm because he literally used every bit of available space to grow food and he had chickens he at hogs and this is a neighborhood adjacent to downtown Memphis where you knows very productive and I That's what we ate from. You know I always say that the food that we was local as our backyard garden it was always in season. And we literally will go harvest food right before making it but in terms of me moving more towards a compassionate and healthful diet in in the way that we think about them kind of like labeling it as a Vegan diet that happened when I was in high school after I heard that The song beef by Boogie down productions and Karras when the MC of that group and it was really just this wakeup call for me. And I just had no idea about the violent way that are industrialized food. System can treat animals and the impact that can have you know obviously on the animals but also on human health and the environment and I just couldn't turn back so after hearing that Song. I really move towards More plant based Diet. And you know. I think it's important for me to always recognize. It wasn't a linear journey. It wasn't like a hurt that and I'd just stop eating meat. Never gone back. You know There were moments where I've eaten animal products again. I mean you know. Case in point how strict Vegan and then went to study abroad and France's and Undergrad and in the mid nineties it was hard to be a Vegan in France House yeah stain. What the host family. And they were feeding me what they ate. And so I I feel like important to note that because a lot of people have these purity tests and I certainly would fail any of those purity tests and I also think it's important for me to be transparent so that other people can just feel human and know that you don't have to be perfect and know that you know you do the best you can and sometimes you might do something differently and it's all about just waking up the next day and trying your best day right yeah totally Philly on that I know that history really informs your work a lot in particular the history of the Black Panther Party for self defense. And I'm wondering if you can explain a little bit about how both that history and other history really informs the way that you work in food. Yeah Wow always talk about the Black Panther Party for self defense being one of the major or learning about the work that they were doing in the sixties seventies Was really the major impetus for me deciding to do this. Work and particularly their survival programs. There were aimed at meeting. The basic needs of people living in communities and at a range of programs from you know free clinics to ambulance service to sickle cell. Anemia testing The programs that address this intersection of poverty malnutrition and institutional racism that grocery giveaways and Free Breakfast for Children Program where the ones that inspired me to start doing Food Systems working to become a quote unquote food justice activist But I think more than the programs especially after having conversations with many former black panthers. It's really the spirit of seeing the need in the community and then just jumping into action you know and I really understood that. We had to train a generation of young people who were equipped to make change their communities around food systems and lead the change in fact and I always talk about how you think about many of the most powerful social movements in the twentieth century and it was young people their energy. They're brilliant Fearlessness that helped these movements Pushed forward you know. We can look at the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa the Civil Rights movement in the American south. And you know if we imagine that food justice will be one of the most hopeful movements of the twenty first century. I feel like we need to make sure that we're quickly young people to be the ones who are taking the lead in the movement. What was it about food that made you really feel like that was the need that you wanted to take action on wall it was missing these parallels with where things were in the sixties and the panthers addressing you know. I think nutritional Apartheid and understanding that hunger and poverty were issues that had to be addressed and they start to breakfast. Well I mean they had the grocery giveaway because people are hungry. He wouldn't know where their next meal was gonNA come from and they started the free breakfast for children program because children were going to school hungry and they knew that they couldn't focus on what they're learning. They were having hunger pains and they didn't need any pure reviewed studies that prove the connection between like nutrition and educational and Behavioral. Outcomes is just like intuitive people need to. I mean like if I don't eat I feel grumpy and can't think straight and so imagine being a child having to go to school without being fed. And so when I I I. I tell this story about being on the subway Going from Brooklyn to Manhattan to go to campus. And you know teeing class and seeing these young people on the subway at seven o'clock in the morning eating candy bars and Red Hot Cheetos and drinking sodas and sugary juices and energy drinks and just realizing that these young people like that's the worst way to start their day and I know that that was just just that day you know this is this is probably the way they're eating often and so I jumped into action and started an organization called be healthy that used cooking as a way to empower them and give them skills that they could take another adult lives and help them feel more equipped to make real food but also as a way to help them be more politicized about the food issues that directly impact them their families.

Bias can have a large impact on health

"Twenty years ago official reports documented the many ways in which health is impacted did by our genes and our behaviors but also by external social determinants. Some of these like race economic factors and insurance coverage may seem obvious but other external social factors like transportation education housing and food security. Thirty also play an important role. This is Dr Michael Wilks. With a second opinion about twenty years ago official reports documented the many many ways in which health is impacted by our genes and our behaviors but also by external social determinants. Some of these. He's like race. Economic Factors and insurance coverage may seem obvious but other external social factors like transportation education education housing and food security also play an important role in how healthy we are. Bias is another factor that contributes to disparities in care but is often ignored particularly with regard to marginalized communities including racial minorities. LGBTQ he cute communities those who are beasts or disabled and many more since the report was written twenty years ago not much has changed with regarding differences in the health among marginalized groups obamacare certainly helped improve access and health equity for nearly fifteen and million people but disparities in life expectancy infant death rates. Malnutrition diabetes and many other markers just have not changed much. Some of these social issues are hard to change. But one factor that is not if given sufficient attention is implicit bias by healthcare workers. Implicit bias sees are those opinions and assumptions that we all have that affect our behaviors and beliefs toward others unconsciously and without our awareness. Even when you look at the highest highest income and highest education levels and you compare the health of blacks and whites blacks have worse outcomes in fact. Hi income educated. Black women have worse health outcomes than even poorly educated poor white women as I have mentioned in past reports. Blacks also get treated less aggressively for documented pain in our offer fewer treatment and options when they have a serious disease. Healthcare teams are composed of human beings who hold biases and prejudices. Joss lost like everybody else. In the general population but healthcare workers are unique in their positions of authority and control over our lives lives. Rudeness and mistreatment in the healthcare system is a common experience for blacks and Latino patients and are black and Latino medical students didn't and nursing students all have their own stories about staff and patients who regularly mistake them for people working in facilities food service or janitorial services. There is the distrust that grew out of historical racism such as the to Ski Gi experiments whereby by hundreds of black men were denied treatment for syphilis in order to observe what the CDC called the natural history of the disease so now a generation or two later how do people begin to trust the CDC and doctors who are the ones that enrolled enrolled them in ethically bankrupt studies so it turns out that some of these social determinants of health are nut so external but are actually usually internal to the healthcare system. Implicit bias is hidden subconscious and unintended to the offender but it is very real and very explicit to the offended. It is often easier to get food to a neighborhood or change our approach approach to say health insurance then it is to acknowledge and address our biases as an article in the Journal. Health Affairs recently pointed out. Attitudes can be changed but only when they are acknowledged an owned the process of making us all aware of our biases needs to be a part hard core education but there is no better place to start then in the healthcare system where people are vulnerable and dependent on

The Heart of Haiti

"Hundreds of thousands of people were buried alive when a major earthquake struck Haiti on January. Great twelve twenty ten as Catherine Puerto reported on how the poorest nation in the western hemisphere faced impossible odds she got to know a two year old girl who survived five to six days before being rescued this miracle child would become a symbol of hope and a focus of Catherine's work in Haiti and of her book. A girl girl named lovely Kathryn Porter. Welcome hi thanks for having me. Yeah now this must have been an amazing thing. You get the GIG. They send you down right after the earthquake in and new fly from comfortable Toronto into this nightmare refresh our memory about the earthquake that devastated Haiti in two thousand ten. The earthquake a was quite low on on the Richter scale comparatively was only seven point zero but in a place like Haiti where there are no building codes that are followed that people have built up without any engineers in place in many cases into valleys on health hops where they really should be building it just meant complete devastation. Huge Swath of the the city had crumbled and buried people alive and because so much of the country was centered in port-au-prince the capital most of the hospitals are there most of the universities in meant. Then look the mass braintrust of the country had also been buried alive. The rates of death were enormous. Ms and they're GONNA ask thirty five seconds but the toll it played on. That country was destroyed. Matic when I arrived at to see like what it looks like waterfalls all on every side of the road in terms of the rubble and bodies Lying in body bags on the side of the road people were walking hang around with toothpastes under their nose because the stench of death was so ripe It was like a you know a built-in little air freshener above their above with their lips. So that they could not smell it you talked about. The main hotel collapsed like an accordion. Yeah there was this huge hotel where in fact a lot of Canadians gins had just gotten out of their mini vans from the airport and settled into this hotel called the hotel Montana. It was kind of place where when people from the UN or for any kind of development group or a big company looking to invest. That's where you would go and meet. It had this beautiful view and pool looking over over the whole city and then down to the ocean and it just completely collapsed. More than one hundred people were killed there and The thing about this type of destruction as that makes you sort of reflect on how these we split second decisions of. I talked to someone who stepped into a store to buy something and she lost her arm and her leg now if she had decided to continue you walking and walk to another store five minutes down the road she might not have had that tragedy happened to her. You wrote about the homeless kids that were I mean the country and we had lots of homeless kids anyways but suddenly they've got no place to go. What what was your impression when you first were exploring the city's about all these kids that were just unattached? It was so overwhelming the damage there were these giant signs all over made it a bed sheet saying SOS we need help and there were lots of people who were separated from their families is still like. I said someone would have stepped outside. The House went down. They don't know if everyone in their family had died. Of course you worry mostly mostly about the kids and you know soon. After the earthquake there were a bunch of missionaries who were thinking they were saving some orphan kids and trying to take them across the border and in fact most of those kids had add family members and the thing about orphanages in Haiti is they're really poor boarding schools so many of the people in their their parents cannot afford to feed them so they send them mm to this orphanage and there's never really planned for them to be adopted so even before the earthquake like the level of poverty and malnutrition and illiteracy and kids with just heart heartbreaking. Then you add an earthquake on top of it and you go to all these makeshift clinics in the city where people are deriving from outside. They're coming from the Dominican Republic with duffle bags of medications looking to help and they set up these little clinics here and there on the side of the road and so sometimes kids were delivered to them with no idea of who you know who their parents were. What neighborhood they were from if the people delivering them were Haitian they could give the information but if the person who was taking the notes or even had paper to take notes was not Haitian and did not speak creole? Then there'd be no paper trail on these people So there was a real fear at the beginning that some of these kids would be preyed upon and there was already a system. That kids in Haiti are stolen kidnapped taken across sold into brothels into the Dominican Republic or sold basically basically into indentured labour and so there was just a huge concern at the beginning of. What would happen to these children? Catherine Porter's telling us how the people of Haiti survived following the devastating earthquake of twenty ten. Her journalism assignment brought her into the life of a two year. Old Girl whose survival in the rubble was nothing. Things short of a miracle book is called a girl named Catherine. This must have spent overwhelming in a lot of people have reported departed on Haiti and the poverty there. And what makes your reporting really intimate. Is the story of you meeting this amazing girl the Miracle Child. Can you tell us about lovely the main character in your book. A girl named lovely so lovely was too when I met her. She had been rescued from the rubble six days after the earthquake and delivered this little makeshift clinic. That was being run by some doctors. There's with meds on demand and some people with a Dominican civil defense and a whole bunch of other random people that fly into disasters to help some tom that are equipped with skills. That you would be helpful after earthquake and some that. Just come because they feel this need to to witness and offer hope and and so she was this little kid and She was too although to me. You know when I met her I had a three year old and a one year old at home that I had left and she has had the poison my three year old but she was a size of my one year old really small scrawny kid. Everyone told me that it was a miracle that she survived because really it is unheard of to last six days under the rubble without water. Particularly where food as a such a small size and they figured she was orphaned. A No one knew what happened to her parents. People were just glomming around her. The first time I met her I I was looking at her. To See signs of the trauma she'd been through and the Doctors Kris told me that she had malnutrition and dehydration and parasites. But there were no broken. Bones or lacerations or other signs signs that she had suffered through an earthquake except for when she arrived she was covered in dust and she was despondent crying for a a number of days so one of the the people who flew in from Montreal basically just hugged her and took care of her and held her for two days. A human rescue blanket hit and I realized the role. Those people play after disaster. You know everyone I think around. Her was flocking to her because she was kind of the symbol bowl of the country's fragility here. Was this little two year old kid. They thought she was orphaned. She lived through hell and what was going to happen to her but to me. There's something very hard about lovely Blais. She is a survivor. She's tough she's got us like an old lady soul. You know when she looks at you she looks right into you and she does not try and please. He's her admirers. She's not like my daughter who's always playing to the crowd. She doesn't really kind of indifferent to whether you like her or not and so I felt like she was symbol of of resilience more a different symbol of Haiti. Of just you know people who can make it through horror and get the other side because she was

Which is for me the main meaning so then their water problems people are struggling to cook people struggling to earn enough money. This is an incredibly dramatic development, and how are people coping this more people are just a going to find water? It is. Sick on Spain. Thousand times the Bryce so forth, therefore buying waters to bribe it. Of course in a context where many people are extremely poor. I know you work a lot on nutrition and getting people in our food. And so on could you just describe a little bit some of the challenges that the people are facing Stein that we deliver humanitarian name good. So the whole country was like two weeks ago. So they decide shortage of additional soup laments in medicine that we with the deviating too. Crooks and this is. Capacity, just resources that the people have a dish point for coping with this are so so weak. Where already people may be our only eating one meal a day. We're struggling to get enough. Good food. I mean. For the people that are really coping people that are getting Jimmy fromm outside. They have cash donors, and they can pay forty three dollars for four for five feet or so forth. 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.

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.

"And hence, this reason why you have this problem with severe keep malnutrition, particularly of of young children, and the other people that are very vulnerable other of the elderly, of course, because when you've got food shortages like that obviously developing and growing children, they're the ones that really suffer. Did you start to see this primarily I in this mall villages? And now also in the cities, you you see malnourished children in the street, or is it something you've gone out to report. I think when you first saw it was initially kinda hit you with the amount of beggars that were on the street, people begging from food or money, and just you know, that always existed in Yemen before but suddenly the being a lot more people. Women and children on the streets begging, and then when you go into the hospitals as well. And you'd have an in big cities like Aden where they previously had anyway. Severe acute malnutrition treatment places, but they were suddenly in on dated with numbers, and they were always young children and babies, and then the mothers would come in with them. And it was quite clear that the mothers were were malnourished as well. That's when I decided to go actually to some of the rural areas and see how they were coping, you know, you speak to children who will tell you about how. Now, they dream about eating things like chicken or dreaming about being able to eat cake again. And yes, of course, any of those children now that rule suffering any kind of ill health or disease on top of that the ability of families to get them to medical care has also been reduced because the cost of transport I meet families that had sold off livestock inaudible pay for transport to get medical care with their children, whether be they had cholera Romandie, Trish in or other health issues selling of land to do that and added to that. Less than fifty percent of the medical facilities in the country now operating because of the war, and because of strikes, and because of fighting, and so, yeah, I think what we don't really see with the is an understanding the numbers of people have died as a knock on affect the war. Not just in Connecticut aspect of it in the APL have have starved to death. And I'm not sure we'll ever have a true understanding of what those numbers are. How do you protect yourself? I mean, both physically I mean from cholera and everything else. But also emotionally I did that because of the help of a network of very close Yemeni friends..

"Youngest doctor. Sharon Varkey is the deputy Representative of UNICEF night nations, children's agency in Yemen. We reached him insana deputy Vaki. We are seeing the staggering statistics about what the war in Yemen is doing to the population. What are you seeing on the ground though? The conflict in Yemen has now lost it for more than three years. And it has made the m in a living hell for its population, but especially for its children that are staggering Levin million children or about eighty percent of the country's and. Entire under eighteen population would need of acute humanitarian assistance. We're seeing the pictures in the hospitals of it's such emaciated children, and those are the children who can actually get to a hospital when you go out in about what do you see what what is? What do they faced with children in Yemen today are at agree risk of severe and acute malnutrition as well as illness that are an estimated pointed million children who are acutely malnourished, including nearly four hundred thousand who was severely acutely malnourished children. And these are children were fighting for their lives more than half of the health facilities have closed down and no longer functional. So this really limits the access to healthcare for children also into thousand seventeen Yemen. Expedients one of the largest outbreaks of cholera with over one point, one million suspected cases, and this is a result of the collapsing health systems as well as water and sanitation systems, a large proportion of the public sector workers, whether it is health workers or sanitation workers have not received salaries since the last two years oblique sector workers like teachers have also not received salaries and this is putting at risk the nation of almost point seven million children. So really there is an urgent need to resolve all these issues so that children in Yemen can have a better life. Resolve these issues. I know you don't want to go into the politics of this, but the crisis that you're facing in Yemen, which they're now saying could be the worst famine in one hundred years. This is not caused by droughts or natural disaster. Is it? This isn't tireless the product of a war. So what would it take? What do you think has to happen to stop this catastrophe? Indeed, the crisis in Yemen is largely man-made and what for is an immediate political solution to end the war in Yemen..

"Andre would they have lost andrei you're right that malnutrition is a major cause of obesity now how is that possible we understand that eating too much is a cause of obesity but you're drawing a distinction malnutrition so yeah it's very interesting because it sounds like very counter intuitive but what we're seeing is people who are food insecure they don't have they don't have they don't have access to high quality foods and they end up eating a lot of poor quality foods that are just refined sugar refined we refined carbohydrate full of poor quality fats these contribute to a beach city and also diseases like heart disease diabetes so even if they had a smaller amount of food the food that is not nutritious might actually contribute more disproportionately to their obesity it's possible and another important point on that is the the cat the packaging in all of our foods so people we we are all exposed to plastic packaging it's it's not only like plastic bottles at your milk or yogurt but it's also in cardboard boxes there often lined with a plastic derivative these are full of what are called endocrine disrupting chemicals so these are chemicals that affect the hormonal system and so what scientists have found uc irvine bruce bloomberg really a really import scientists has found that there some of these endocrinedisrupting chemicals are causing weight gain regardless of caloric intake so you they have an animal studies and they have a group of animals eating you know standard diet than they have the other group eating the exact same diet but they introduce these chemicals those animals are gaining weight and are overweight and that's just from the chemical itself so the chemical itself is contributing to obesity the same diet the same quantity and yet because these chemicals are present one group is gaining weight becoming obese while the other is not startling yes i am so what's what's your story my story is that you could use me first of all is a say for what's good and how your body works in seventy nine going on eighty my mother is my dear there's always fed me organic foods as long as i can remember i always had fish i never had any other foods like regularly but i'm looking at now i'm talking about when talking about getting fat free milk and organic fat you'll get i'm looking at yoga there's nothing yet it just as ingredients coaching pasteurized nonfat organic milk and is nothing added so when she said that is vitamin d and there's other stuff ed is she's absolutely wrong i don't know where she got her information and also i fat free milk which is organic grassfed nothing is editor just pure milk so she has to modify.
