We're just we're the most accomplished person ever had this podcast like I cannot even begins. Batum were all you have. You guys are the best and this is. This is what I need to me through the rest of the day as I conquer the world. Yeah! We're honored that you made have the time the time to come talk to us just a little, so thank you so much. Did I get all of that right? You did I I. Guess What I can do is explain it to people because people are kind of like is all of that absolutely so? I'm obviously a mathematician, so the MD is the easiest part I think to understand on my completed my masters in public health nineteen years ago, so it shows you that I'm older than I appear. And that was in health policy management. My masters impose ministration was from the Harvard. Kennedy School, government and government. Currently working on my MBA executive MBA, so that hasn't quite made it to the end of my name, but I may lead US next year. Let me tell you guys. We'll have more to talk about. The the all the that you see after not team for fifteen, but it is nice that it goes with that, so those are all fellowships, so my fellow of the ANC, which is the American Academy pediatrics I'm a fellow of American College of Positions. American college positions represents all Physicians for adult so internal medicine, a fellow of the American Heart Association so basically. I'm looking at cardio metabolic health and being the fellow in the American Heart Association what represents that and then a fellow in the obesity society. Society which is the F. Toss? So you know these fellowships come you know after having accomplished in those different on areas domain, so I see children I see adults I work in this kind of Cardio Metabolic, health space obviously as obesity medicine physician I work in that space, so it really is a combination of kind of who I am, and just looking at Vegas, the letters that come after my name really talks to the work that I really care about and working with my patients patients across the wall. That's amazing. Wow -gratulations. What inspired you study obesity. One of the things that I was always very concerned about as a black one in a black woman who was born and raised in Atlanta Julie obviously in Boston is that's where mastermind Harvard are? I'm I was really. Perplexed I think is the word I WANNA. Use about the disproportionate impact obesity on communities of color particularly I'm the black community. That was what really brought me to this work, so if you go back twenty years ago, I think you've as you're in your twenties for twenty years ago. When I was doing my m H, you're not okay. Across. Our loved anyways Oh! That's Cute I. Love it still have you guys by? Decades! but one of the things I was really interested in seeing was like. I felt like there was a lot that we weren't doing to understand why. Obesity obesity disproportionately impacted certain groups and the groups that are more likely to kind of tackle these issues or the people that are representative, so those scripts so as a black woman and the group that is most disproportionately impacted by obesity I felt compelled to really approach and tackle this headline, so the projects that I was doing back at emory school of Public Health, back in ninety nine two thousand etc, We're looking at specifically obesity in the black community one project I was doing was. Was Looking at obesity in the Black Church community was looking at obesity among African, American, adolescent girls and one was looking at obesity within those that are law resources within the wick programs. It'll women's and children's for Ram, and how could we fix their Their plight in terms of recognizing that we can in some ways with the limited resources that they may have available to enhance their role house. So this was something that was kind of lingering. I didn't anticipate that I would choose obese medicine. 'cause that was not a field when I was twenty years ago. It really was not a field. There was no board certification in obesity medicine. The first Brit sort of patients directly. No Be Madison didn't start until two thousand well, which was well after I finished medical school, but I can tell you I was on. Call in the pediatric ICU when I was in residency and I as internal medicine pediatrics and I literally just googled obesity in medicine at about two thirty in the morning after I just intimated three kids in the ICU in a new. I was going to sleep at nights. I figured I'd just need to keep myself busy. And, the fellowship here at Mass General at Harvard popped up and I was like. What is this? You know I I really interested in obesity. I had no idea there was a fellowship, indeed the first ship and so I came and I spent three years. Doing a fellowship dedicated to understanding the disease of obesity.

And just to give you a little bit of background. This has to do with with nitric oxide and we may have talked about it. Somewhat last time, but I think it bears repeating because yeah, sometimes, the whole concept is not that easy for people to grasp the first time. And it was a number of actually a decade or two ago, maybe more. That was found out that earlier virus. Could be killed by nitric oxide, which is obviously a molecule of gas. And so at the present time there are two academic institutions spoke. The Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. and. Ohio State University in Columbus Ohio. Where they have. A. Setup a study where patients who come in with a coronavirus. Will be first exposed thirty minutes of inhaling nitric oxide. And that's repeated three times a day. They're also doing the same. With. With. The healthcare workers who will get thirty minutes of animation of nitric oxide when they arrived at work. And thirty minutes identification again when they arrived from today.
How Does Anxiety Work?
"It's perfectly natural to be feeling anxious. Everyone does sometimes and there are plenty of things that anyone can do to help combat it a Christian goes through a few ideas end of the episode but in this one we wanted to talk about what's going on in the brain when anxiety becomes a disorder. Here's Christian brain stuff it's Christian Sager here. Listen I get anxious you do too but hey it is totally normal and healthy response. That keeps us from doing things that might actually be dangerous. Like sticking your hand in a fire for instance but when anxiety is so pervasive that it interferes with your daily life it becomes a disorder and most researchers believe that disorder begins in your brain there several types of anxiety disorders phobias. Ptsd and OCD. Or just a few and some forty million American adults suffer from an anxiety disorder according to the National Institute of Mental Health. But let's focus today on general anxiety disorder which affects close to seven million adults in his twice as likely in women. You're constantly anticipating a threat or disaster. That isn't actually present. Maybe you're worried about money. Health family or work in despite reality you'll expect the worst. The symptoms include restlessness fatigue difficulty concentrating irritability muscle tension and sleep disturbances. The symptoms officially become a disorder. When you can't control your worry for at least six months you may still be social or even employed but people with general anxiety disorder can have difficulty carrying out even the simplest of daily activities experts. Believe that general anxiety disorder is caused by both biological factors and life experiences good old combination of nature and nurture but anxiety is also recognized by many as an emotional response with neurobiological routes simply put the neural pathways in our brains sometimes lead to irrational anxiety in stressful situations encourage us to develop associations with those pathways by influencing which neuro chemicals pass through them the same way you learn to tie your shoe you can also learn to be anxious the neurons in your brain fire and overtime. They get wired together. One stressful thing like being stuck in traffic leads you to think of another stressful thing lake a car crash. She wants survived. And this activates. A part of the brain stem called the locus serious. This triggers the symptoms of anxiety by releasing neuro epinephrine into your spinal cord and parts of your brain while hormones like adrenaline and cortisol spread through your body. It's supposed to initiate an analgesic response to suppress pain and initiate defense. When you're under threat like if you were actually in a car crash and injured but when there isn't any actual threat all were left with is the jitters of anxiety a couple other things about the brain contribute to anxiety. Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital found that people with a thicker venturo medial. Prefrontal CORTEX are less likely to get anxiety. Basically some brains have more armor against inducing situations than others. We don't have enough

David Ortiz has more surgery in Boston after shooting
"David ortiz. Known as big Papi. The baseball star of the Boston Red Sox and really more than just a Red Sox star. He was a baseball star people loved him the world over and he was in his native Dominican Republic at a bar the other night. And somebody just walked up from behind him, and shot him and then ran out of the bar, the crowd chased him and nearly beat that guy to death. Yeah. So his lost some of his intestines. I believe he lost his gall bladder. His wife issued a statement saying that he's actually doing pretty well under these circumstances. Have you heard any other news those lines, he underwent a second surgery? He's in Boston. The Red Sox have been pretty supportive in great with this as well. Considering what he means that town team. They sent their team playing the Dominican to pick them up. They brought him back. He landed in Boston. He was he was transferred to Massachusetts General Hospital. Undergo a second surgery late last night, that went past midnight. So, I guess in early this morning. It wasn't exactly clear what the second surgery was four, but they say. He's in stable condition and yeah, just the weird crazy story and. I watched the video of suppose. Everybody's seen it by now. Anybody? That's interested. It's not that graphic it's grainy black and white video. But he's sometimes when you see somebody in a bar fight or shooting, you think well they, they should have avoided that scene. He wasn't doing anything wrong. No use sitting there sitting there and guy comes up from behind him a plug them. And I keep reading that if they keep describing it as a club, and it may be, but it looked like a casual patio night for a lot of those guys just kinda hanging out. And this guy comes up. There was a two people are in custody with Dominican police, the driver and the actual shooter driver was the one who got caught and beaten badly by the crowd, which probably the best way to handle this situation. But it shows you how much they love big Papi down there. I think the whole crowd that. What are you doing? This is you get shot in the guy, you know, I'll call nine one one but can I get maybe these people went after him? I mean. Yeah. And you know, when I. I heard about this story, and then I just started to replay Ortiz stuff in my mind. I thought of the speech he gave to the crowd after the Boston marathon. Right. Your member that Boston strong.

People in their 20s are injecting face fillers to look like their selfie filters
"This. Marketplace podcast is brought to you by the university of Florida Warrington college of business transform your future with an MBA from one of America's top ten universities. Learn more at Warrington dot ufl dot EDU slash MBA. People in their twenties and thirties are getting injections to look more like their selfie filters from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Selby's are an art form on social media. But some young people aren't happy with just a Snapchat or Instagram filter. They want the lip cheek and forehead injections. So that their real life faces match the doctor itself fees. The American Academy of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery says there's been a twenty percent increase in botox injections among eighteen to thirty seven year olds in the last five years. Marketplace reporter, Eric embarrassed, it's reporting on this recently. And she told me that the makers of injectable fillers which smooth out the lines on your face like a photo filter. Does are starting to spend a lot more money on social media marketing, our Gan, which is the company that makes boat talks makes Juve Dharam does cool sculpting. That's where they're paying influencers to do a lot of the work. So people are on Instagram anyway, looking at other people's faces all the time. And then they're seeing people that they might follow women that they might look up to. And they're seeing that they also were are actually, you know, talking. About these things, you know, they're like hash tagging Sunday afternoon. Hashtag tocks hashtag filter. Hashtag fillers. You know, the whole thing. Yeah. Tell me more specifically about what people are getting done like what specific procedures than what are people trying to look like. So the most basic thing that most people are getting done is just getting, you know, likable talks injection that kind of freezes your face and kind of makes you look relaxed. But then after that there's a lot of small spas that have opened up that are offering things like institute, which is some stuff that you can get put in your cheeks that give you like sort of a higher cheekbone. You can get your lips done and make them a little bit plumper a lot plumper. There's all kinds of stuff that you can get done. I understand that one woman told you she really has heard of people asking to look more like the filters that they have seen on social media. Right. Yeah. So one woman I spoke with who's Twenty-seven-year-old in Rhode Island. And she says she just gets her lips done. She gets imbo both talks. But it's pretty like normalized amongst her group of friends, and she has a couple. They get a little shot of Duve Derm in the tip of their nose. It makes them look a little bit like that Snapchat filter, and I just thought that was kind of fascinating like the idea that you wanna look like what your online reflection looks like do you have a sense of whether any of the doctors are ethically conflicted about this. Do they resist it at all? Yeah. So I did talk to one doctor who actually is the head of one of the plastic surgery. National plastic surgery associations in Memphis, and he refuses to give anyone any kind of injectable or bow talks unless they medically need it or if they're under a certain age. So he's adamant lead not doing it. But at the same time, he knows that there's like clinics just right up the street that you can just walk into. I think the big part of it is is that because you know, it's it's an elective procedure. It's a lot of money. And so you're budgeting thousand or two thousand a year, you know, it can be hard to say no to that. Erica barris is a reporter with marketplace. Last year. Researchers at the Boston University school of medicine Warren. About what they called Snapchat, Dismore FIA and said, it could lead to body Dismore fic- disorder, a mental illness that causes people to obsess about their imagined defects. And now for some related links head over to our website. Marketplace tech dot org for a link to a longer story that Erica did about this four marketplace and more stories about Snapchat, Dismore, Fiat, and how it has plastic surgeons worry earlier this year doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital published a guide for cosmetic practitioners to help them figure out when they're dealing with someone who is beyond normal discontent with their appearance and onto the obsessive compulsive spectrum that is body this Morphing disorder their research that as many as thirteen percent of people seeking cosmetic surgery have the disorder and in a fun. Fact, I learned that dissatisfaction with your appearance is so common in basically, everyone that researchers call it quote normative discontent.

So this week I chat with a very interesting individual names. Dr berry Sandru, he's actually. Harvard Medical School in Massachusetts General Hospital. Neuroscientist turned entrepreneur, inventor digital imaging expert, visual effects, pioneer, and filmmaker. And we're going to talk all about the really cool work that he did inventing film colorization technique and doing all sorts of really cool visual effects over the course of his career super fascinating stuff a little bit of science meets Hollywood in this episode. So without any further ado here he is Dr berry Sandru, Barry. Thank you so much for joining me today. Great opportunity. Thank you for inviting me, I have to first and foremost, thank you for being so flexible, I have had a banana schedule recently between trying to work on my PHD working on the the new TV show that I'm working on which I can't even tell anybody about yet. And seeing clients and podcasting and goodness. It's been a ton of fun. But. Around where they were going to stay in. What clinical psychology cool. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. That's where the seeing patients comes in. And it's it's been a ton of fun. But it's also like there's just a lot right now, it's been pretty exhausting. But of course, you know, about having kind of your toe in a lot of different pool. So from what I gather and correct me as we go through. So you did your PHD from Harvard in neuro science, right? No. I didn't do it at Harvard. I did it state university of New York at Stony Brook. I got my doctorate there in that. I didn't National Institute of health postdoctoral fellowship. It Columbia college of physicians surgeons and then became staff neuroscientist at at Harvard for seven years. I see. Okay. Okay. Cool. So your staff neuroscientists at Harvard, and okay, and you did this training before. And so what was your position when you're at Harvard? What is a staff nurse? Scientist do are involved with basic neuro science research studying the neuro chemistry physiology of of the brain, and in particular is being emotions memory and pain. The interesting thing is that now you are working. I mean, you have a lot of things you're working on you're working on a couple of startups. One in sports betting one in augmented reality. You're also doing your heavily involved in these really cool visual effects projects for Hollywood film. So before we dive into all of those cool things I have to know how does one transition from neuro science to visual effects? Well, when I was at Harvard, I was also in one of my labs Dilara deliberation. I opened up their founded rather ways when in neuro radiology, and that was this is in the early days of neurology in even at Harvard, and it hadn't really gone digital yet. I mean, it was still analog people still looking at rays. And that's the thing was there were no digital x rays or anything. And when at Harvard, we used to get all of the greatest toys from seamens from g and all the rest, and they gave us pet scans and say t's memorize that today are commonplace. But back then they were really leading edge. And they were a lot of them were very experimental. So I got involved in all of that. And I got I got fixated on trying to improve the diagnostic quality of those images. Using color using three d reconstruction all of those things that today are again are very common but back then nobody every. Even thought about it. So I was using color in particular to to improve the diagnostic value of those those x-rays, and and and the the digital work that pet scans in the CT and everything and out of the blue some entrepreneurs from these coast approached me to to find visibly to colorized black and white movies. They had three failed attempts to produce graphic engine to do that. And they finally got some some advisers from Stanford research who said you should look at medical imaging..
Treatment Options for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
"About someone struggling with mental illness and so parts of it could be difficult to hear. Massachusetts General Hospital may seventh twenty eighteen Megan's obsessive compulsive disorder has been really bad. So she's come to the doctor for some help. She sits in a chair as he fiddles with a hand held, computer. The one that talks to the device that's been implanted in her brain. He's trying to find just the right amount of electricity to make her feel better. While you were talking I slowly ramped it up again anything different now. Little bit. Yup. Wasn't what's happening? Slightly more aware. Really? It's not like in the past where it was like who I feel good. But it's like a different feeling general just sharpening worse like everything got light turned up a little bit. Yeah. That's okay. People say that. Let's try going up. One more step. Anything different. We should dial this one back a little bit. Now, if you notice me it down, then maybe I'll change my mind on that. I just feel it. I don't feel good at all right now. Something just changed. That's why. Because in the process of reconfiguring, it it just temporarily went off. So you really notice that me once? Okay. Hang on a second. Let me get this back to a state. And let's go back to the left side and take a look. Tell me more like, what's. Kapiti? Okay. Okay. Listen. This is visibility. I'm HANA Rosen today, we have a story about a woman who desperately unhappy. So she signed up for the scifi sounding medical trial where she got an electrical device implanted in her brain. We look at her experience. And the man she fell in love with a love affair entwined with batteries and wires and electrodes technology, which might have implications for assault. Stick around. So Elise Spiegel is telling the story today. One note, there are references to suicide in this piece. And this is Megan story, but that's not where we begin we begin with part one Megan's boyfriend until he found Megan Brian almost never had luck with girls. It had been a huge problem, and I had a habit of meeting girls. And then kinda like job interviews, you leave thinking I think I went really well and like you don't hear about. But even when Brian did hear back and things seem to be headed in the right direction. It typically didn't last long his rose always seemed to lose its bloom pretty quick like those wanted to be different at some point. Like, there'd be a point where they'd be like, why don't you? Why don't you more like this? Why don't you do this? I was like they weren't accepting who I was like I felt like even really know why was probably. I didn't really know why. So you wanted someone who accepted you? Yeah. It lease on some level. I got tired of people dating me. But then wanting someone else. The problem as far as Brian Cataldo was his depression. He'd struggled with it since he was seven Brian's, biological father had left a month after he was born and his single mother did her best. But he came to wonder if she sometimes his father's face in his own when she looked at him. He wasn't sure. But in any case he'd resigned himself to a loveless fate until one day while perusing Facebook, he happened across a picture of Megan years before she dated this guy he knew, but apparently she'd recently moved to his hometown in her Facebook picture, she had a friendly smile. So Brian went for it at the risk of being too random. I was just browsing the old f book hip, and so you live in Farmingdale. How'd that happen? Maybe we should hang out at adventure land together. Megan replied, right away. She dropped out of college because of her OCD and pression and moved in with her parents. So sure she'd love to hang out. She was looking for friends in the area to Brian was glad to hear it. But he didn't allow himself to get to excited member thinking if you just wants to be friends, that's cool. So in the night of the date, he played it low key. It was summer. So he suggested that they take a walk down main street, then after they went back to his apartment to hang out. Fortunately, for Brian things went much better than expected back we serve watching movie, and she took my arm and put it around her. And I was like, okay. She doesn't want to just be friends. And that was that was the beginning of their from that moment on Brian. And Megan were thick as the who just make weird jokes and just everything's funny. Like one of the earliest memories was like I have to like voices like this. And and we were watching the two thousand twelve to beat and one of the questions was about deductions, and I was like. And that became a running joke for here's. So just like a lot of just hanging out. I worked for us. So it's beautiful. Yeah.
Vaping two times better for quitting smoking than patches, gum
"New British research in the New England Journal of Madison says vaping is nearly twice as effective is nicotine gum and patching in helping smokers to quit CBS News Radio. Julia Weaver talked with Dr Nancy regarding of Massachusetts General Hospital about the research what they did is. They did a randomized controlled trial of smokers who are interested in quitting smoking. And the people who signed up for the study or randomly assigned to either use nicotine replacement which could have been a patch Gummer combination of several different types or using electronic cigarettes. And what they found after year is that the quit rate was double in the east cigarettes compared to the group that got the nicotine replacement. So it sounds like contrary to what we've been told in the past e cigarettes might have some type of public health benefit. I'm wondering if you can talk about. That a little bit. And also whether people who are trying to quit smoking might really want to seriously consider using e cigarettes as opposed to some type of nicotine patch or gum. The reason that e cigarettes might have a public health benefit is because they might help people to quit people who haven't been able to quit with other methods or haven't been willing to try with the existing treatments that we have. And this study shows us that in fact e cigarettes help people quit smoking. It suggests that they are at least as good as artistic treatments may be better. I don't know that it says that, but it certainly says that they are an option for people who are trying to quit smoking, especially if they have not been able to quit using nicotine replacement products now in terms of the type of state, we know what what kind of cigarettes. This study used second-generation e cigarettes. Those are the ones that are refillable and reusable. They're not there. Little ones that look just like a cigarette set you tell out when they're done, and they're also not tools, which are the current bestseller in the United States, which are pods. And what they did is they gave people as sample of second generation e cigarettes. And then they said go out try different ones and see which kind of cigarette is best free that you liked the best and used that. So they didn't give him a specific one. They gave him a trial of of one kind of cigarette. But we don't know exactly what people use. So it's not like you can recommend a specific brand in this case. Right. And I think one follow up question that I have that. I'm sure a lot of folks have is how many people in this study, how many people are still actually using these devices right because we've been told that they are incredibly addictive, and do, you know, if someone's using it to maybe curb one addiction are is this something that they're able to wean off of nicotine completely or do we find that people are still using these devices or the gum? You know after the great question. So the goal for smoking cessation is to get people off of what we call combustible tobacco, which means tobacco burns. Because it turns out that most of the harms of tobacco are caused by burning the tobacco products backup product not from the nicotine in it. Something that many people don't know. Is it nicotine is actually not that harmful for people? Surely it is addictive but itself doesn't cause cancer. It doesn't cause heart disease and other things. So the goal is to get people off of

"More. What are your thoughts on meditation devices like means, well, as you know, I'm on the advisory board amuse, and I think that's because what you're doing is helpful and technology can be a really powerful bridge for people, especially those people who think the mind doesn't really affect the body. I remember when I was doing my residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital at Harvard in one of the gods of medicine. He wrote the textbook came out and said dean, you really think the mind affects the body what a. Stupid idea. And I looked at him. I said she's have you ever had it. Erection. I mean, the idea that the mind affects the body is like, you know, so obvious to me, and yet it was still considered radical at the time and still a lot of people don't really believe that. And so part of what the muse technology does is it gives people the direct feedback of. Oh, when I think certain ways, or when I meditate I my my markers. Get better, my brain waves change, my blood pressure changes all these things that really make a difference. You can actually see that. And that can help you provided the feedback to go into deeper deeper states of meditation. You don't need that to meditate, but it can be a great tool for people who do awesome. I didn't. If you got a chance to look at muse too. But we now have real time feedback on the heart the breath in the body. So you've breath exercises.

FDA Issues a Recall of the Popular High Blood Pressure Drug
"I remember that generic blood pressure medication that had to be recalled. Barely. There was a suspected carcinogen. Now, they found a second carcinogen. So I'll tell you guys what's going on. We actually got some good news and bad news within so we'll deal with the bad news. First. Regulators are flagging a second potential carcinogen in the China made heart drunk as you know. There was a blood pressure medicine. Generic blood pressure medicine, Vel certain manufactured in. Zhang whole high pharmaceuticals in China. And as part of the manufacturing process n d m a was created and praises of it were found within the pills. This happened back in the summer. And so health regulators had to as well as our FDA had to initiate worldwide recalls of the generic medication. Thou certain is a generic for the brand name divan fantastic blood pressure medicine in the AARP, the edgy tested receptor blocker family. But unfortunately, during the generic processing that happened in this Chinese pharmaceutical plants this after product or by product was made and D M A, which is the original one that was found. It basically contains nitrosamines nitrosamines it's in that classroom. Nitrosamines has been linked to cancer, especially in animals. We also see nitrosamines in smoked cured meats. Tobacco. And these nitro sa- means have unfortunately been implicated in amicable cancers such as lung and liver. So the second I guess compound rather than the nitro so Di methyl Amine is the nitro so diethylene N D E A. So rather than Di methyl Amine? It's Di ethyl Amine and DA that has also been detected in the Val certain made by Jay z Zhang cli- pharmaceuticals in its previous manufacturing process before changes were introduced it two thousand twelve so data on levels of NDA. And what it can actually do is still limited. And so the European Medicines Agency is all over this. They're the ones that of came out, you know, making us aware, and they are going to provide further information on whether it's presence impacts of risk assessment. Once more information becomes available. Now, the watchdog also says at further risk assessment had confirmed that the lifetime risk of cancer from exposure to these is still very low. So what is the good news? Well, there has been a recent study sane. There is overall no short-term risk of cancer. According to the latest study on the DM, a not the N D E A because the news just broke. And they've been studying the MD as since the July recall, so the US FDA July recall, the veldt certain medications, and then the FDA European health agencies wanted to look into where we weren't cancer risk. They say Danish patients exposed to eight invalid certain products, do not appear to be more likely to develop cancer. That's according to the study. And the study was just published yesterday. So according to casper Christensen, we found no evidence of an increase in short-term risk of cancer from exposure to contaminated products in the study of all adult Val sergeant users now he's a doctoral student with the university of southern Denmark's public health department. But I'm thinking, wait a second. It's been what forty five days. It's been forty five to sixty days. And how do you know that there's not going to be long term cancer risk again? Nobody's giving us the quantities of this NDA may or this NDA. So I think it's too soon. But he says that says a too soon to tell whether people exposed to end EMA vowel certain will have a long-term higher risk of cancer. So when you hear this you're like, wait a second. So short term risk means getting cancer early. But I wonder if I'm going to get cancer in my life. I mean, if somebody says, look, you may get cancer. You know at some point in your life. I mean, whether you tell me I'm gonna get into months or two years. I I'd like to know I'd like to have all my questions answered now. Please. So they say researchers did find some evidence that might influence short term risk of colon uterine cancer. But results were not statistically significant again one US exports. None of over the city expressed caution. He says, I don't think there's any reason to say this research sounds the all clear, that's according to Dr James Januzzi, it looks like jacuzzi. But it's Januzzi. He's a cardiologists with Massachusetts General Hospital. He says I literally just got off the phone with the patient of called me about this question. And I switch them off the generic certain to another drug now, not all Val certain medicines for the high blood pressure or heart failure having recalled only certain brands, so the recalled products were those distributed by major pharmaceutical socal healthcare and Tiba pharmaceuticals. Also, some of the certain hydrochlorothiazide formulations that were distributed by socal healthcare. So about certain many times will be added to a little diabetic. There'll be a little diarrhea added to it. And that seems. To augment its blood pressure lowering effect. Plus it helps with heart failure. I it's a great class of medication. I love the air because medication to just this is a manufacturing issue. And the question I have is if they caught this in this one drug. What about all the other drugs? I mean, I I'm hoping they are researching like crazy every single drug made out of this pharmaceutical plant, and then look at some other plants because people copy each other's manufacturing process. I doubt this is the only plant that did this. So contaminated medications. This is the first time we've seen it happened. It looks like they've been on top of it. And from what I understand all those products should be out of the loop. But what's gonna end up happening is people are going to avoid certain altogether.

"It's even three times as likely as your child dying from choking. Now. I know a lot of people have freaked out when their kids are eating something and choke, but it's so unlike it's three times less likely than that they're trans and attempt suicide. So there will be real risks associated with kind of the traditional gendered way of raising kids. And after doing that huge multifactorial cost benefit analysis, we came to the conclusion that the minor risks from bullying kind of came out in the wash on the whole. It was a positive choice and that's why we're doing it. Let's add another voice to the conversation joining us now from. Austin is Eugene Barisan. Eugene is child adolescent psychiatrist and executive director of the clay center for young healthy minds at Massachusetts General Hospital. Gene, welcome to on point. So give us your take on this whole discussion and the issue of they b.'s. Sure. Well, first of all, I want to applaud. I applaud defensively to planning thoughtfulness of Nate, Julia, and Alex in making this decision. I think that it's an admirable social mission to kind of change a sexual stereotypes and pigeonholing our boys and girls. I think we've come a long way since the nineteen seventies where girls have been able to be more assertive and competitive, and the advent of title nine has been huge and boys have been more in Pathak and able to actually cry and hug each other after after sporting events. And I think this is a step in the right direction that being said, you know, as parents, it's our job to support our children to know who they are to have conversations with them to be open minded and non judgmental, and also to. You know, we make decisions and parenting across the board that that embraces our choices, values and beliefs as parents and as Nate was pointing out, you know, there are risks to this. It may not be for everyone. The risks of a kid being assigned, a non gender pronoun comes with consequences. And as they pointed out it is the risk of bullying, the gay and lesbian. The straight educational network has done extensive research on this and non-conforming gendered youth more about twice the risk of bullying. Bullying some cases can scar kid for life and one third of kids who believed in these kids can be, you know, marginalized bullied confused, scared and stressed. Now, the job of parents, of course, as natives doing is to monitor your kids to watch them to make corrections to help them navigate these waters. And if if you know if it needs self-correct. Thing we as parents, you know, can't self correct, and that's what our job is. So I think they're going about this social experiment in the thoughtful manner aware of the with risks with eyes wide open. And I'm curious because there is no research on how these children will turn out. So we're looking at this now, I'm curious to see how it comes out and you know, I, I wish them the best gene in a twenty eleven ABC news article. You were quoted as saying to raise a child, not as a boy or girl is creating in some sense of freak. It sets them up for not knowing who they are. Let's make the assumption that's a correct quote on that you're not improperly quoted. Has your has your thought on the subject as been any nuance in your thoughts on the subject? Since twenty eleven the I, it actually is an incorrect quote because when it was about the child store who was raised in Toronto in a homogeneous community, and my comment was. This may be fine. You know, just as as Nate has has carefully chosen the school, the community, the the folks that the kids are kids are going to be seeing my comment. The context of the comment was take storm out of that community and put that child in different community in the child could be viewed as a freak and marginalized got though so that that that's the, that's the danger. The danger is that we will, nor kids to know who they are and to be tolerant and open minded and flexible. But also to be Jane. I'm gonna cut in for a second.
