What is Fungal Overgrowth?
"Got a growing condition. Our side he called small intestinal fungal overgrowth and just in general mold and other biotoxins which are basically living organisms that that end up eating different things in our body and creating endotoxins that signal inflammation in different regions of our body. These are these are really really problematic. So mold and yeast can cause major issues including a condition called chronic immune response or chronic inflammatory response syndrome. Sirs lyme disease and other really common one viral infections in then bacterial endotoxin so certain bacteria release things like lipopolysaccharide rides l. p. s. which creates a very potent inflammatory process in our body. The reason why these things are so damaging our system is because our body is hardwired for survival. And we know that sepsis or chronic. Systemic infections have killed more people throughout the history of mankind than anything else and so the way that our body has adapted to make sure. We don't die from bacterial meningitis. For example is that we create this really potent inflammatory process whenever we feel threatened and so when it comes to mold and mold spores or yeast like candida that releases things like leo toxin and Seato outta hide And you have lime disease parrella and different things like that and the toxins that they release viruses that are damaging cells and then the l. p. s. from bacterial endotoxins reasons are released. The body says i'm under threat. That this is an organism that can kill me quickly. So i need to create this really strong inflammatory process and inflammation is the reason why as humans that you know in a sense from physiological perspective. Reason why we've been able to adapt however what we need to adapt to now is really being able to control and modulate or balance the inflammatory process from these biotoxins and so this condition of small intestinal fungal overgrowth in. It could certainly happen in a law. The large intestine as well. However it's very very common for candida in different east organisms to overgrowth different Different mold yeast like organisms. I guess you could say To over to colony in the small intestine
Vaccines with Heather Simpson
"Today we're talking about vaccines well. More specifically about the toll. The anti vaccine movement has taken on our public health. Let's start with some basics x one of the most successful public health interventions in human history. They've saved millions if not billions of lives. They protected generations of children in the us and around the world from deadly diseases and right now the surest path out of the covid nineteen pandemic is to vaccinate as many people in as many places as possible but that of course requires wide scale public trust and participation two things that the anti vaccine movement has been working really hard to undermine vaccine movement has been growing in darkness for decades and now they've captured the spotlight as an is fear uncertainty to so doubt and spread lies about the coupe nineteen vaccines their efforts have been amplified by public figures who used their platforms to elevate debunked conspiracy theories and all of this is made much much worse by lack of accountability from social media and technology platforms themselves. The nfl move hurting our ability to recover from this pandemic and it could affect which vaccines this generation of kids received well beyond covid nineteen. So what can we do. How do we fight. The powerful tide of disinformation that began long before this pandemic and has unfortunately gained momentum during it. How do we overcome mistrust around vaccines and help more. People get the facts that they need to make the right decisions for themselves and their families while to answer this questions. I'm talking with two people who are confronting these challenges head on later. We'll hear from my friend. Dr peter hotels vaccine researcher and advocate and co director of the center for vaccine development at texas children's hospital. But i i'm talking with heather. Simpson a mom who fell down the rabbit hole and then pulled herself back up. Heather is an activist a freelance writer and a mom to three year. Old daughter hers is a story of how effectively the anti vaccine movement entraps people and a reminder that it's possible if not always easy to change minds. I started our conversation by asking heather how she went from someone who had always gotten vaccinated then anti-tax social media influence my mom vaccinated all of ice. It wasn't until i was eighteen. I had the choice to get my meningitis shot. And i hate needles so on. That alone chose not to get it going in college which was stupid. I did get the tea dot in two thousand fifteen. I got the flu shot school. It wasn't until me and my husband really started trying to have our daughter that we were like Should we do the schedule. I mean we haven't given much thought. And a documentary series popped up on facebook as an ad and it was nine hours a just pure propaganda. It was doctor after doctor blaming everything under the sun on vaccines so by the time. You're done watching all nine hours of terror. You're not gonna wanna inject your kid. I mean i was terrified. I was thinking if we inject charlotte. She will die in her sleep that night. The strength of the fear that i had was so so strong i was ashamed a little bit a little bit embarrassed about it because my mom groups were so pro vaccine so it didn't really tell anybody but when she was about eighteen months old i decided to start talking about it casually on the internet on facebook and it just took off and i didn't realize that their birth thousands and thousands of antibodies mom's on facebook that had all found each other and that there's this huge huge growing community and they just accepted me as one of them and it just took off from there.

Cuba is working on a homegrown COVID-19 vaccine program
"Cuba. The Communist run Caribbean island is soon to launch the third phase of clinical trials on its own Corona virus vaccine produced by government scientists. Government hopes the vaccine will not only end Cuba's cove in 19 crisis but become an important source of revenue for the cash strapped nation. Austria. Cuba had largely contained the outbreak. But after the country reopened to tourism, the number of daily infections and Corona virus related deaths rose to its highest point. So far from Havana will grant reports Some of the equipment Havana's Finley Institute, maybe a little outdated, but the science itself is cutting edge. This hundreds of vials passed through a sorting machine. They're part of Cuba's greatest hope for a solution to its Corona virus crisis. So but on a DOS Cuba's domestically produced cove in 19 vaccine made entirely in Cuba by Cuban researchers, so banana dos is a conjugal vaccine, meaning and androgynous fused to a carrier molecule to bolster the vaccine, stability and effectiveness. The island has much experience in this field. Having developed the meningitis B vaccine in the late 19 eighties with the same approach. Certainly the Communist run government his confidence so, but Anna dos is. The solution is already in phase two clinical trials and they aimed to vaccinate everyone on the island by the end of the year. In fact, says the director of the Finley Institute doctor, they sent their various Bencomo. There are ambitious plans to export it to the rest of Latin America commercial for what we're trying to have. In the order of $100 million during 2021. And totally will dedicate report of part of these doses to the full immunization of the country. That to happen, it will need the help of other nations. Doctor very says it's too early in the relationship with the Biden administration for the US to play a role just yet. Our make Europe Canada, So we have people participating in our drama from Italy and France. Fortunately, not today with the U. S. We hope that in the next fishery will be possible. We moved to a next step off rotation collaboration. And after, and Vasa pride, Barcelona Open son I don't know what for many Cubans, the vaccine can't come soon enough. The outbreak in Cuba was largely contained by the middle of last year after the government imposed strict measures from a curfew in Havana to daughter door health checks and an aggressive track and trace program. Anyone merely showing symptoms was placed into state run quarantine centers as well as anyone returning from abroad. Almost all flights were halted and tourism, the lifeblood of the island's economy, ground to a halt. However, eventually the economic picture became so bleak the government had to re open. Now visitors must take an obligatory PCR test at the airport and least in theory remain in home Quarantine for a day's Since the re opening, though the transmission figures in Corona virus related deaths in Cuba have crept up to their worst point since the pandemic began, one of the other girl, all those rebel in the government's daily televised updates, the covert 19 statistics have steadily risen to more than 1000 cases a day tiny in comparison to some nations like Mexico, Brazil or the U. S. It's still more than is comfortable for Cuba's overstretched health service has the island simply can't afford to buy millions of doses of an internationally produced vaccine, even from allies like Russia or China? The pressure is on the scientists working on sobered Anna dos. As Cuba's economic slump worsens. There are long queues outside most stores as people search for scarce basic goods. The recent coronavirus spike prompted the government to close down the tourism sector. Once again without millions of free spending visitors in the hotels, bars and restaurants, Cuba is hurting economically more now than at any other time since the end of the Cold War.

Should you be worried about allergic reactions to the Pfizer vaccine?
"So now let's talk about vaccines today. And i want to talk to you about a couple of different vaccines. But let's start in the uk where thousands of people in the last couple of days have received the fifa vaccine which is really exciting. But one of the things that we've heard about. Is that a couple of people have had an anaphylactic like reaction. So how worried should we be about that. People have been discussing this risk with the peiser vaccine because it uses a substance code peg polyethylene glycol mackerel goal and what this substance does in vaccine and a couple of vaccines that use it. I think the one of the meningitis vaccines may goco vaccines use. It is kind of out the components in the vaccine and enhances the immune response so essentially what you've got. Is you want the strongest immune response that you can possibly get here and the probably ethylene glycol helps that to happen. So that's what that's about so it does rarely 'cause Reactions interestingly as pfizer says the didn't get an to or allergic responses anymore in the placebo in the anymore in the active group than the placebo group in the trial but these people certainly sound as if they got an nf electric or type reaction within a short time. After the you'd have to say was the pfizer vaccine. That did it. So you're saying that they did have some reports of these sorts of reactions during the trial but they didn't think it was caused by the vaccine. Yes and theoretic and people knew there was a theoretical risk of that because peg is known to cause an actual reactions in some people rarely. It's also used as a laxative. It's seems like a very versatile substance knows how to job well while we're talking about allergic reactions. Can we talk a bit about egg allergies and why we still hear that. If you've got an egg allergy that maybe might not have certain types of vaccine misleading story. That's got into the general public where they believe that if eggs have been used in the manufacture of vaccine. And you're allergic. You're going to get an egg allergy. It's not the egg itself. It's the embryo within the egg that they use embryonic cells within the egg that they use to actually make the vaccine. Influenza vaccine is the one which commonly uses eggs to culture the vaccine and it doesn't contain the york. Can we basically contains little or no egg allergen so it is a bit of a myth. So vaccine allergies are actually extremely rare. I mean some people argue that it's one in one point four million dollars what. Gp's are advised as you got a very egg allergy child them with a vaccine that uses egg. Then you just keep them in the surgery for a little bit longer just to make sure they're okay but a lot of these vaccines are being developed for. Covid have eggs anywhere in the process using all sorts of different new processes. The nova vaccine uses insect cells to produce the vaccine so lots of different selves used quickly. Talk also about china's vaccine which came out really quickly and they were reporting quite promising results. But there's been some news reports in a taiwanese news outlet saying that. Forty-seven people in uganda had the vaccine. Have now tested positive for coronavirus. How much stead should be placed on this news. Report a runabout about zero. We'd be my esteem you know. It's a newspaper. Report might be true. Might not be true. Might be misleading. That could have been part of a trial could have been in the placebo arm of the trial who knows and is complicated by the fact that no doubt taiwanese taiwanese media just love any story which knocks the chinese technological supremacy off the pedestal. So you just take all that with a pinch of salt. It may be true. But i'm really what we've to do. Chinese not done themselves a favor by not doing transparent trials at least yet and so we just don't know what's going on there and that sort of darkness stories like this popout and it. Just don't do the chinese any favors because the chinese are pretty good. Researchers of are some clouds hanging over some of their vaccine manufacturers allegations of fraud in the past. Well
How the gut protects the brain from infection
"A brains sit cocooned inside a series of protective layers. They called them in injuries. And these together with a structure called the blood brain barrier keep out unwanted bugs nasties that could otherwise prove lethal forest. But how exactly the brains defense systems do. This wasn't known now. A new discovery is added an important piece to the puzzle specialized plasma cells these a blood cells that make antibodies is important potentially harmful bacteria in our intestines and then make their way up to the outer part of them in indies called the juror where they churn out antibodies and keep the brain bug free medical worthy. The thing that really got me interested in thinking about the brain is that there's increasing evidence that the immune system plays a role in a number of brain disorders so things like depression and anxiety and even the progression of neurodegenerative diseases like parkinson's disease as well as that. We know that the immune system is required to defend parts of the body from infection. So this could be important for defense against infections in the brain and in the ninja. So things like meningitis. How did you them. Pursue this to try and work out. How the brain was actually fending off infections. As with many studies in immunology we use mousers as a model and so the first thing that we did was to take meninges and look at them under the microscope and they were plasma cells in the sierra and they were not just got anywhere. They are actually lined up along. The border of large blood vessels that run through the zero. The these bug vessels are called venus. Sinuses the next question. When we find these plasma cells was empty they were producing to all surprise. We found that rather than producing igt. What's normally find in the body. They were actually producing an antibody. That's normally found gut so you've got this interesting observation an- tomic clear in the first instance of blood vessels running through. Jeez they've got cells that make antibody lining up along them. But the antibody they're making is one that you would not normally associate with the bloodstream. It's one that you would find in the testing. Yes so that was surprising. And i guess the next question was well duty cells actually originating the guts or are they influenced by the gut so to answer that we were able to use. Mice have never seen any sort of bug. They have no bacteria or any microbes in their intestine and when we looked at the dura from these animals they were no cells whatsoever but when we added bacteria back into their gut suddenly again the antibody producing cells reappeared in the era and even if we only eat put one type of bacteria into these mice a type of bacteria that couldn't go anywhere other than the gut we still saw the cells reappear in in the dearest that told us that those cells originated in the intestine. Your sort of hypothesis is the bacteria in the intestine. They educate the immune system and immune cells the intestine and what the cells then migrate from the intesting with the knowledge of how to make antibodies against those specific microbes. Up to the brain and take up residence in the meninges around the brain exactly and they specifically take up residence at the border of these d'oro venus sinuses. And i guess then the obvious question will why. Why would that happen. Why is the system being set up and the obvious answer would be. Maybe those cells there to protect The brain from microbes bacteria that originated in the gut into the bloodstream. When they're flowing through those at venus sinuses where blood flow is quite slow. It's an opportunity for the bugs to get out into the brain so to test that what we did was to remove all of the antibody producing cells and then we challenged mice with microbes into their bloodstream. And what we found was the bugs were able to get a cross into the brain as so it told us that really. We found a whole new defense system for the brain. What are you going to do next. We're interested in the signals. That might take the plasma cells from the gut to them. And jeez and then the other thing. I'm really interested in is whether this has implications for how we try and protect people from meningitis at the moment. If we vaccinated against meningitis we give that vaccine into the muscle but our study would suggest that actually if you want to make cells to defend the brain the route that you should give that vaccine is actually via the gut and so that's something that we look into the bodies a clever all thing. Isn't it minute klatt worthy there. She's basically comes university. Study describing that work has just come out in the journal nature.

It came as quite a bombshell. I have to say after several hours of reporting that hope picks, one of the president's closest advisors had tested positive for the Corona virus, And in fact it was President Trump in a tweet. This confirms her situation, a saying that it was terrible and confirming that he and the first lady had gone into quarantine.

'Boys State' Helps Teens Learn How Politics Work — Perhaps A Little Too Well
"This is fresh air, want a glimpse into a potential future candidate for elected office? Look no further than the new documentary called Boy State. It's about an annual event in my government for high school students sponsored by the American Legion. By the way, Bill Clinton and Cory Booker went through the program. Boy state begins streaming Friday on Apple, Plus our film critic Justin Chang has THISS review. Since they were founded in the 19 thirties by the American Legion, the boys, state and Girls state programs have been giving high schoolers a practical education in how government works. Students in every state are chosen to take part in a weeklong summer experiment in which they must form their own representative democracy. As we learned from the opening credits of the terrific new documentary Boys State. No Clinton, Dick Cheney, Rush Limbaugh and Cory Booker are just a few of the program's famous alone's A film, directed by Amanda McBain and Jesse Moss, focuses on the Texas boy state event that took place in June 2018. We see the roughly 1200 participants arriving in Austin. Where they are randomly divided into two political parties, The federalists and the Nationalists. Those names carry no agenda. It's up to both parties to hammer out a platform, choose their leaders and then run against each other in a week long election campaign. McBain and Moss throw us into this mark government exercise without much preamble or explanation of the rules of the game. My politics itself. The action can be a little confusing. Unlike politics, it's never boring, mainly because the movie wisely focuses on a select few participants. Either. The filmmakers were extremely lucky and their choice of subjects or they shot so much footage that they were able to isolate the most compelling personalities. In any event, the four young men, we spend the most time with all in that playing key roles in the experiments, nerve wracking outcome. Most ambitious of the bunch is been the Federalists Party chair who's willing to do anything to win votes, including smearing the Nationalists on Social media. Dennis, politically conservative. He has a Ronald Reagan action figure to prove it. And he despises what he sees as the liberal tendency to divide people along lines of race, gender and disability. Then speaks from some personal perspective. He lost both his legs to meningitis when he was three. Care of the Nationalist Party hails from the opposite end of the political spectrum. Progressive black teenager originally from Chicago. Renee knows he stands out in this mostly white, conservative Texas field. He also stands out on merit. He has a seasoned politicians command of rhetoric and can deftly out argue any opponent. It is also capable of calling for party unity, as he does in an early speech. My grandmother told me a few things you have to have faith, hope and a bit of a pissed off attitude. I want to be civil and represent a whole working body. And we're gonna take the example of a plane body. It has two wings left one, right one. We're not gonna pick one. We're going to stay in the middle, because we're not intolerable party where one that is palatable to all. And so as long as we're able to keep this plane of foot with a healthy right wing in a healthy left wing, we have the ability and the capability to pummel any fairless into the ground because we're the only party that's where voting for because it's this party that's going to represent every individual. If Rene has the sharpest mind and tongue and boy state, its heart and soul belonged to Steven A fellow nationalist party member. Stephen becomes an underdog in the race for governor, the highest elected office. Like Rene Steven stands out. He's the son of a Mexican immigrant, and he counts Bernie Sanders among his political heroes, his humility on the campaign trail and his stirring honesty in front of a microphone. Prove irresistible to the crowd. Again and again, he invites his fellow party members to tell him what issues are most important to them so that he could be a better truer representative for their concerns. We see these young men debating a lot of issues, especially gun control. There's a lot of talk about protecting the Second Amendment. But there are also counter arguments from students like Steven, who have clearly been shaken by the sheer number of school shootings. Another much discussed. Issue is abortion, which leads to one of the film's most revealing moments. A nationalist gubernatorial candidate named Robert, who's running on a strict pro life platform. Admits on camera that he secretly pro choice. Sometimes you've got to say what you've got to say in an attempt to win, he says. That's politics. Indeed, it is. And while the filmmakers are working from a mostly neutral fly on the wall perspective, their attitude toward the boy state program feels ambivalent. At best, Deliberately or not. The experiment seems to bring out a lot of the flaws of America's political system itself. Personal attacks, dishonest tactics and conflicts that hinge moron popularity than substantive policy debate. It's undeniably inspiring to see so many young men with bright, engaged minds and the best of them, as we see from the end of the movie have already gone on to impressive new accomplishments. But it's also dispiriting that so many of them have already learned to view politics in the most cynical way possible as the game to be won by any means necessary.

UK coronavirus vaccine shows early promise
"Over at Oxford? They say they're experimental Corona virus vaccine. Has shown in early trials. To really hardcore. They're happy with the answers on this one. Ah, prompt a protective immune response in hundreds of people who got this inoculation. Now. The British researchers, as I recall that they began testing the vaccine back in April. They jumped on this early. It was about 1000 people. About half of whom got an experimental Lexie. Such early trials are are designed to evaluate safety. And see what kind of immune response was was provoked, but can't tell if the vaccine truly protects until a certain point. Okay. I don't wanna get too deep into the weeds here, but in research that was published today in the journal, which is gold land set Site has said that they have found that their experimental Cove in 19 vaccine has produced a dual immune response in people ages 18 to 55. It lasted a couple of months after they were immunized. That doesn't go away or has it only been since a couple of months that they were immunized quote. We're seeing good immune response in almost everybody. This is Dr Adrian Hill, who was the director of the Gender instituted Oxford University. What this vaccine does particularly well is trigger both Arms of the immune system. Both arms of the immune system. Yeah. Did you know the TV system? Having an appendage is a bump up? So he said that the neutralizing antibodies air produced, Okay, we'll try to bring this down to a level that even I understand molecules. Which are key to blocking infection are produced. So In addition, the vaccine also causes a reaction in the body's T cells, which helps destroy cells that have been taken over by the virus. Match the important factor here. So this experimental Cove in 19 vaccine Has caused only minor side effects, just like the one we talked about last week. Think exactly the same. We're talking about fever in some chills for a day muscle pain, especially the injection site. And The the The other people gotta control meningitis vaccine as a part of the experiment. Um, they did not suffer from those those those side effects. But individuals who got this experimental Govind 19 vaccine did So Dr Hill said that larger trials evaluating the vaccine's effectiveness. Which will include about 10,000 people in the UK As well as participants in South Africa and Brazil are underway. About why South Africa. Why Brazil? I'm not sure, but they're all related to what's going on from Oxford, so another big trial is slated to start in the U. S soon. This one is going to enroll about 30,000 people in this test group this test cell 30,000 So we're gonna have like 40 50,000 people all in the The whole, you know, realm of testing involved in this phase of one or both Vaccines now how quickly This is the big question. Hey, how quickly scientists were able to determine the vaccine's effectiveness. The way I understand. This will depend largely on how much more transmission there is. Really? That's their response. Dr. Hill estimates that if there were enough data to prove the HVAC teens of vaccines efficiency, the emulation of some high risk groups in Britain could begin in December. Could begin with wall to wall vaccinations of high risk groups like me, I'd be considered that in November. I mean, the December excuse me. So that means this year. I don't know that anybody really thought our chances of developing a vaccine that worked I was going to be in the cards so fast, if at all.

She was followed two years later by Rodeina then a year after that was Leslie and then my must've gotten tired because Catania. The baby was born four years after Leslie took a little break there and then that was the end of it yet. But this is the fifties four kids was not unusual at all. Aw No that wasn't Nanan. Woodley have like six years or so apart something but I'm four girls and six years four children and six years. It's a handful. No doubt absolutely now the three older girls were all lighter. Skinned with blue and green is tiny stood out. She had dark eyes dark hair and a dark complexion. Well I like the Milkman. Is My mother used to say. There is a maternal uncle uncle who was a fan of the lone ranger TV show and he began calling Tanya Tanto. The name of the Lone Ranger's native American sidekick so this nickname apparently caught on Tanya was no family as Tanto throughout her life. Yeah a little. I don't think that would fly today as far as political correctness but back then and that was totally something people did. Yeah of course. I don't think lone ranger would fly very well today either so no now. We'll beverly early K.. was eight years old when her parents brought Tanya home from the hospital and Beverly K of course loved her new baby sister and for a lot of the time she'd become primary caretaker for Tanya Beverly K even called Tanya her real live baby doll and just two months after Tanya's birth wander wander. The mother was hospitalized for appendicitis. which you know was a bigger deal back then? There was some hospitalization for several days and she had to rest and John of course had to work so beverly K took over pretty much all of the responsibilities of caring for her baby sister. Tanya in over the years of Tania's Childhood Childhood Wanda had multiple health problems. And I only bring these up because I think it could have affected the way that Tanya turned out unfortunately in a bad away Wanda was bedridden for arthritis mononucleosis hepatitis and even spinal meningitis. So bedridden for the better part of two years Wanda left Beverly K in charge again of a lot of things for a kid. You Know Young. She's like what ten by this time. Yeah not very very old but tiny would recall one of her earliest memories of her mother was when her mother was hospitalized and this was a fond memory she she also had some really good memories of her own hospitalization as a child Tanya hit a small cyst removed from under her left arm and because her mother Wanda was was in the hospital at the same time tiny was allowed to stay in the bed with her mother and have her individual attention for several hours. Now this is from a a child who really hasn't seen much of her mother. She pretty much been raised by her big sister so I could really think it's safe to say that the cemented some positive ideas ideas about being in the hospital for Tanya or thank so growing up. Tiny didn't have too many friends. Fortunately she had her sister's around of for the girls were active in their church choir and they traveled to different states to perform. Misses a real treat because the town where they lived in Texas was isolated. And there just wasn't anything to do there will not only was there not much to do but dad was super strict with those girls.

Getting serious and possibly Sibley becoming physically involved with the boy where we can have their right so he had some weird rules like that. He was very strict and when they were pretty young still.

And so, and I I know this for a fact with one of my own kids. So I had a child who is looking almost slightly possibly autistic. Like, right. I mean, he's just was nobody was home. He was like five or six at the time just not doing well. And I thought well there was a way to to analyze for heavy metals in the body by giving DSM a challenge. So that's a key later. So I gave them a dose, and then I was collecting his urine. And oh my goodness for several weeks. He was really gone like it was very clear that we had mobilized just in that one large dose mobilized a lot of those heavy metals, and it was causing further harm. And that's the challenge with collation. But I'm not again. But boy, if you do it you better be in the hands of somebody who really knows what they're doing. What's an interesting, take, you really can't do it at home, can you? Well, there's there's a gentle ways with a topical applications sometimes that maybe you could get away with that way. But but I really think relation should only be done with guidance from somebody who's who really knows what they're doing. It's DVD's turn in Corvallis, Oregon. Welcome to the program. Hi, george. Thanks for taking my call. Her welcome. Dr Thomas, are you have you been to Oregon state university here in Corvallis? I've been by there. Okay. So Corvallis is a small city, but it's got a large student population. And my question is last year. And I don't want to miss me, miss speak the disease, but I think it was meningitis or something the dorms. This happening on other college campuses, but you know, some an injustice or some outbreak in the dorms, we're giving the students vaccinations for free, and I thought well, you know, they're out in the community. It's like, you know, popular coffee house that I go to easily, you know, is all filled with students, and I'm just wondering is their safety for people like me that community at large. I mean, do I to get vaccinated with something like that? If there's a lot of students around, I guess, that's so what you're talking about as manager cockle type b so in Oregon, we're we're here in Oregon. We have about four million people and the rate of Manila cockle, type-b deaths is about one in a million to one in every two million. So we have one or two deaths per year is that the national average. And that is about the national average for that. It's a very very rare death rate, a very rare disease. The we used to until just a few years ago. There was no vaccine for type b we had Manindra cockle AC, y and w all in a vaccine called Menaka or men vio and those were fairly effective. But in Oregon more than fifty percent of our meningococcus is type beep. So they now have a couple vaccines for type b wants to remember the others back Cerro. And that's what they've been using on the college campuses that have outbreaks this is not a disease that you're gonna catch going into the coffee shop. It's basically the reason it's most common on college campuses. You know, there's kissing and stuff going on a little little more intimate act. I'm not saying it's impossible to get it other ways, but pretty much I wouldn't worry too much both because it's very rare. And also because you're not in a lot of intimate contact with these students, Don in Kent, Ohio taken away, Donald brother, George. Thank you so much great program. You guys are doing. Tremendous service to the nation. Yeah. It'd be commended, you know, growing up Roman Catholic, we have great respect for life antiabortion, but I heard of monkey kidney cells SP forty along with aborted..

"All right. So let's play a little bit back from Liz Greenwood when she was on our show yesterday and an earlier hour, she is a deputy L A city attorney and she works at city hall east in downtown LA, and she got typhus from the fleas and the rats that infested city hall, and she's going public big time because this happened in October, and she's still just recovering. But she's decided I'm going public because there's things they need to do. We'll start with this first clip from her interview about how she all came down with typhus. I got sick on November first which means that I was bitten. Probably two weeks to ten days before that. And I was sick for about two months. The only thing that is left over is that I get bouts of vertigo. So I can't drive because the world spins out, everyone is that going to be permanent. I hope not it was the worst headache I've ever experienced in my life. It started on November first by the by the following which is a Thursday the following day. I woke up in my neck with Steph, and the doctors thought I had viral meningitis. The was it really felt like someone was driving stakes through my is and out the back of my head. But have you retire at work? I have not returned to work. I have the doctor has I can't drive and I live actually over an hour away from work. So they I have I don't outside of Uber. I don't really have a way to get there. And I'm not eager to go back to an office. That has been cleaned up yet. Filling a little more. Does she said they thought she had meningitis viral meningitis? She actually did her own little research and went back to a doctor and said, you don't test me for typhus and bingo came back positive, and she's keeping those test results because they didn't want to believe her and the only way to get rid of this is to get rid of the vagrants and their garbage. Everyone has to be clear on this. It is the garbage the food that the vagrants leave in their tent encampments all around city hall that caused the bacteria to spread the rats. Eat the garbage get the typhus, the fleas beat bite the rats, and then bite people like, Liz. So it's about as disgusting is you can find in the modern world. So now, this clip it's important you listened closely because this is the campaign she's on and we think she's right? And we're trying to help her and listen to the very ending of this. Remember, this is a deputy L A city attorney. So she knows the law. Let's listen thousands of people that work in that building and hundreds of people every day that are doing business with the city going in and out who have no idea of the health risks that they're putting themselves in. They didn't even send out a department wide Email to let them know that one of. Their colleagues have become infected. They literally did they from what the HR person told me they sprayed some please spray in my office. So that I would feel better. Please. There. There's no movement to clear out all the garbage and the food and the rats and the vagrants that are creating this whole mess down below. No, there's bad, and there's no movement to even fumigate the building to get rid of the fleas or the rat. This is my friends and my colleagues and and. Thousands of people that I don't even know who are exposed to that to me allowing a health crisis like this, and this type of health risks to continue without doing anything is borderline criminal. Yeah, we say even more than that. I think it is Colonel by the way, we reached out to her boss. The LA city attorney, Mike sure didn't wanna come on. No comment, you'd think fear would come on and say these are my workers to protect them. I feel horrible that this happened. I'm sorry about this. We're closing the offices for for a week until everything's fumigated. And then the trash hauled away from all around the building area. And yeah. And the vagrants are removed. You've got a radical. You gotta move the vagrants. We're also gonna talk to L A city in LA county health departments to see what they're doing. I mean, she's right people have been exploited, by the way, she pointed this out, and it's good to remind remind me that this is flu season. There could be some people to typhus and didn't know it. And just thought I got the flu because the symptoms are similar, but you have to take that specific medicine to fight it too. I did too Doxa cycling. I think right. I mean, if you have a good system it's possible that you know, you could eventually be okay without taking the medication. But if you don't. This could be terminal in the long run because it's very dangerous. So what we're doing is. We're going to help Liz all we can to get to the bottom of this. And you heard her list of things that should be done warnings posted fumigate the building. Instead, you know, don't just flea spray her office, will you just an isolated incident. We're going to take care of your your crazy fears and just put a little fleet out because they've always had plenty of typhus out in out. Skid row. Yes. We've had a lot of cases of typhus. They had started. It started last fall. And I don't think they've ever radical. All right. When we come back. We will tell you a little bit because there's a few funny things one of the favorites. When we talk about the upcoming state of the union speech is who is the designated survivor, as you know, one member of the cabinet is stowed away in casing major disaster strikes. Everyone is the president is speaking to congress. And it's usually the loser member it's complicated this year. We'll explain why that and more coming up. John and Ken KFI.
