"And next guest dr siddhartha mukherjee is a pulitzer prize winning author and an oncologist. He joined our walter isaacson to discuss the complicated complicated landscape of cancer care antibiotic revenue said welcome to the show. Thank you pam. You have a great piece in the new yorker and more scientific piece in the proceedings of the national academy science. Recently talking about modifying are white blood cells are immune system so that they can hunt down around kanter. Look correctly is a big new way of looking at cantor. It is a it's a profound new way of looking at cancer and the basis assists for this really dates back really almost a century so the centerpiece of all of this is that for a long time. We've been focused on the cancer so what's wrong with cancer. Genes are wrong with the cancer cell. Why does the cancer so proliferated divide etc etc but over a century ago. A second group of scientists are group researchers have group of doctors began to wonder well why not just worry about the cancer so why not why also about the environment government the home that the cancer about the patient the person the person in fact the tissue of the person because cancer is what's interesting about a cancer. Is i mean there's some some very basic questions. Why do some cancers only metastasized to some organs and not to other organs. Why does the breast cancer or lung cancer have a propensity to go to the bone. Why does myeloma which could live anywhere love to live inside the bone and the bone marrow why does leukemia living the bone unabomber so they're reasons and the reason has to do with interactions between the cancer and its micro environment the tissue or the home that the cancer bills around itself so what you're saying is you take our own immune system. That's right and it's called immunotherapy sometimes but now it's gone beyond that cause your gene editing our immune system system to actually hunt down the exact can't exactly so our work and other people's work involves using gene editing to change the micro environment of the host i either to activate the immune system and thereby kill the cancer or change the immune system of the host or the blood system of the host such as the cancer becomes visible is a boost the immune system so all of these fall under under large family of ideas which has to do with us whatever technology gene editing antibodies etc but concentrated not just on the cancer cell but on the home that it builds on itself on the tissues that occupies and asked the question. What is it about the host. What is it about the patient that is allowing the cancer to flourish you just talked about gene editing and they're really really two types of gene editing those that edit early stage embryo so that it's and inherited change in the gene and those that just try to do the body of the patient and a particular tissue which ones are using now so we are using exclusively gene editing hanging in cells that will never be transmitted to the next generation schaefer so donald safer. It's actually ethically permissible. We're working on an international national framework to figure out whether or not to and to what extent to make changes in sperm and egg cells and embryos those so-called germline cells that cells that will transmit information not just into you but in two generations to come you say that ethically problematic why after death logically problematic to change our genes so that our children will be healthier well. The question is whether that that is really the biggest biggest this question. Can you change jeeze. What circumstances can you change gene so that so that your children will be healthier well why not one idea which has become. I'm very clear is that there has to be disease. Extraordinary suffering involved but these arguments are going on right now. There are other ways that you can decide it due to treat some children so there other alternatives. The question of extraordinary suffering is is very important and perhaps the most important is that we don't know all the side effects the changing genes in the germline. We don't know exactly how accurate is it seems to be pretty accurate in pretty safe but we need lot experiments. We really need to kind of international agreement to figure out whether this is going to be permissible for missile and what should be in next case in china china have won robe doctor doing last november. It's right in russia right now. Career a doctor about to do three different cases just to cure congenital deafness in the germline. Why are you talking about creating this whole consensus when doctors have just go ahead and do it in some places well doctors are going to do it in some places they would do it in ways that are not that are not technically safe often and that will set back the field. I'd remind you of of what happened with gene therapy so in the one thousand nine hundred ninety s there was an attempt to do gene therapy on a young boy named jesse gal l. singer yeah in philadelphia in philadelphia right so and this seemed the experiments seemed relatively technically feasible it was moved through various various boards authorities to make sure that it was safe in fact what turned out was that the child died as a consequence of gene therapy but it set the the whole feedback by about ten years say it should only be used in cases of extraordinary suffering meaning editing of our genes our children and children's children why why not do it so that you could be taller or blonde or whatever you might wanna be blue eyed. I think the question of enhancement first of all is technically easy. It's a vast technical problem. People underestimate it's not as if i can insert or take gene away or editor jean from genome.

"Yes, Dr Claes's the one that tracks Santa for me on my. Christmas. Absolutely. And that will be here before we know it, but we've got some some weather to get through unfortunately between now, and then, and we have guess we have weather, and we have documentaries and one of the things I loved about the the spirit of the documentary that people can see about the Oklahoma. Isn't it is the fact that there's no bedlam in this? It's you know issue and a lot of other people working together. Give us the cliff notes. If you will what is the Oklahoma resonant sure, the Oklahoma measurement is our states weather network of a hundred twenty stations. There's at least one in every county, and it reports all of the important weather conditions that forecasters need the note to keep everybody safe. Does that every five minutes around the clock twenty four seven three sixty five and it's been doing that for twenty five years with over five billion observations now in the arc. Five. Five billion observations. What does that mean? So it means that we now have this really long term record. You know, twenty five years is pretty good good time chunk to be able to study how Oklahoma's climate might be changing. But more importantly, putting information into the hands of public safety officials weather forecasters emergency managers to help keep people safe every time you look at the six or ten o'clock news on TV and see all those numbers all over the map of those are from the Oklahoma as an from the Oklahoma mezzanine it. So I would say you all created the Oklahoma standard, and we're talking whether what is the back story where to where did the idea come from. So the the backstory has all of these convergent tracks of which some of it was serendipitous. But then the the other half of it was visionary. It was scientists at Oklahoma state university who really needed to have better weather in. Mation associated with their agriculture programs, which are absolutely world renown at the same time of the weather folks in Norman were also looking especially coming on the heels of the Tulsa floods that if we had better rain information around the state that we would do a better job with flood forecasting. So it just so happened that the oh, you folks that were looking at the weather side and the folks that we're looking at the eggs, I'd kinda got wind of one another and everybody was talking about whether and so those two groups put their heads together. And like you said it wasn't bedlam. It was collaboration at that point. And are scientists in Norman and the scientists and Stillwater have had this amazing partnership for twenty five years, and we hope it continues forever and has this amazing partnership funded. So we have several pots of money that we have to sort of cobbled together to keep everything. Running for us to be the gold standard. Which is what the national academies sciences called us. We run the premier network on the planet. And we have a lot of folks around the world that are trying to emulate us to do that. It's about a two million dollar operation each year. But from that two million dollars in investment, we've been saving hundreds of millions of dollars for agriculture uses protection of life and property at cetera. So the return on the investment here is huge about half of it is funded by the state of Oklahoma and the other half is grants and federal dollars and user fees from our TV stations and private sector companies that use the information. So it's about a million million split. So about one million from the state and one million from these other sources, well, I was tenting a few weeks ago with my co host of the garden show, which we call the garden party his name. Is Jamie Ashmore? He's the curator special gardens et a wish he okay, see save the enter saved them as a knit save the business because he had heard that the mezzanine it was in jeopardy. So we hope that is never in jeopardy, but boy funding every year, especially in the the funding climate that we're in. We're you know, we've just had this, you know, several years of downstate budgets and cuts and things like that. While at the same time, I guess what the information the individual hurt is the fact that the budget that arrived at the president's office of the president's budget didn't have any funds for Mezin at in it. So the federal funding would be taken away. That would in fact be a huge hit for us. Because like I said the state funds about half of it. And then our ability to fund the other half of it comes from that federal sources, well as grants and things like that. So yes, if that's funding were to go away. It would do away with the as it. But boy, it would make it really really hard for us to continue to operate at the gold standard excellent level that we do today. So at the risk of being. Incorrect or politically incorrect is this something we need to contact our two senators contact all of our. Right. I think any any opportunity for us to tell our story. And again that was one of the reasons for the documentary was not only celebratory, but also to just get the word out of what the Mezin it is what it does I will say this. We got one of the nicest letters I've ever seen from Senator Inhofe celebrating our twenty fifth and his office was fantastic and recognizing when you watch the documentary that's coming up on Thursday at seven thirty on OAT a you'll see Frank Lucas. So congressman Lucas has been a huge supporter of ours. And you'll you'll see him as part of that documentary as well. He was actually in the state house when governor Bellman way back in the day, actually sort of put us in into legislation and got us going. So so we do have great friends in the Oklahoma congressional district. But a another word of hey, we would love to say Byzantine. It is. Always appreciated. It's necessary. Because we've really haven't said what the mezzanine it tells us. I mean, I do not have a canola crop out there. I do not have. I'm just your classic weather fan. I love you know, what's going on love to know how much rain. There was all of the state. I like to know how much rain there was three days ago. I like to know what the do point is. I like to know all this. So everybody can use the mizzen it for their own reasons and purpose, and it's very scientific mean, why don't I let you talk about it. Instead, I think you've hit on something really key here. Right. It's something for everybody. That's one of the mazing visions of the mezzanine. It was that when the scientists from the two universities got together. It wasn't just for a single purpose. Right. It was for everyone. I'm so anybody in the state, whether you're an amateur sort of weather hobby. I just want to know what's going on whether you're a gardener. Whether you are doing landscaping here Gatien, whether you're doing firefighting emergency management the way as an is constructed is that there is valuable information there for everyone just recently like last year when we had the wildfires in twenty eight teen we estimate approximately ninety five million dollars of property with save because people were aware of a wind shift which was coming in which was going to change the direction of the fire ended allowed people to pre deploy resources and actually get a handle on the fact that that fire was going to change behavior before it did. And so it's a proactive tool that allows people across the state to manage their crops to manage production, planting spraying emergency management everything. Because I I know that our weather people, you know, issue the. The flash flood watches and all that stuff. But it's so nice.

"Some pathology how early should be on so much. Much. I think usually. Somewhere between five and six. There are some parents that elect to start them a little bit earlier. And I think that's fine. As long as the blood test is done to see what the levels are because your body is hyper metabolic, and you're growing from a child to an adult. So your body's making cells in the most spectacular rate. I looked online to see what the average rate of cell division is, you know, how many cells are dividing every second just as a, you know, trivia comment, and I think the number was twenty nine with thirty zeroes after it. So twenty nine with thirty zero. I don't even know what that number would be divide every second when you're about fifteen. So when you get older, though, cells are not dividing in that number, and we see changes in all of our tissues because we're losing new cells, and we can't replace those. And as telomeres are snippet, you know, genetically we divide cells when we snip off the tips, the ends of our telomeres than we h faster as well. And of course, everybody knows if you smoke or drink too much alcohol, you do all the bad things. Then your body will age faster. Might offer suggestions one of your distinctions that you're an osteopathic physician. Yup. Explain to the public included. Jackie what osteopath osteopathic physicians and allopathic, MD physicians. Have the same exact licensed to practice in New York? It doesn't say Chris Calloway DO on my medical licenses says, Chris Kelsey, I'm licensed to practice medicine surgery. The state of New York, so every state has that when you like the idea of osteopathic medicine, which is the original holistic approach where doctors in this country, looking at the whole person, we're looking at underlying causes as opposed to trying to change or treat symptoms. We also invented the idea of using manipulation to help to correct dysfunction within your back in positioning, a rotation of your vertebrae. So there's a great deal of physical medicine and therapy that we do, and we learn, you know, even starting the first day of medical school. So for many osteopathic doctors we go into different types of residency. I'm going to medicine some going to practice some gun to Pedes OBGYN surgery, neurosurgery, Ortho. You can go into any residency you want because the entire country sees us both as equals we just have a little bit more of the knowledge in terms of hands on doing the manipulation. And we typically lean towards going into family medicine as opposed to going into surgical specialties. So if you look at all the deals in the country, they're the overwhelming number of deals the largest percent, go into family medicine, internal medicine has opposed to going into specially because we want to be more effective to more people in a variety of ways instead of becoming an ultra high specialized. Searchable field or even research. A lot of us. Don't really go into research because you know, our enjoyment is with patient interaction. You know day to day shaking your hand. Hi, how are you? Let's talk, you know. So I I always liked the idea. And that's why I went to osteopathic school. Hi, Dr Kalpana gift. Thank you, sir. Thank you so much once again, you've kind Burton always great to talk to you. Okay. Next. Caller, what eight hundred eight four eight WABC you can call in now. One eight hundred eighty eight nine to two Victor in freehold. How are you? Doc macaque say thank you very much for taking my call. Sure. I actually talked to you last week. It's me it gets me once again. Okay. Well, thank you for other cold. I got a question for you. I kinda horrify baby the other day 'cause I'm the one that has a chronic gastritis. Yeah. But also, I have I had dry and and dryness of the mouth. So right away. I you know, how we go on the computer. Yeah. For a lot of people. It's a dangerous thing because they think they have a hundred diseases that they probably don't have but dry dry mouth could be Shogren. It could be not immune mechanism. I imagine the gas tries for probably be slightly separate from that. Because the patients I've seen that have show grins when we test them don't necessarily have to have. The issues. With the stomach. Right. Right. I went to my primary physician day did a blood test. They did a shark grins anti called SS a essay Rohan. Yeah. Why nothing was like normal range. You know, it was normal. Does that specifically mean to I don't have it? Well, it means you're not showing antibodies for it. So not every disease when you present to the doctor, and he reviews your tests will be, you know, textbook opened the book. Here are all the normal blood tests, and they're all positive here all the symptoms and the role there. So the reason why for autoimmune disorders it takes a while to be able to. Make a diagnosis, and that could be a mess. You know, lupus rheumatoid variety of these things is because they don't show up with all the blood test positive anyone given point a person can have it, and it may take a while before those blood test markers or the auto immune markers are buddies start to show, and there are some people for example that have rheumatoid, but they're bloods negative. So the doctor obviously has to make his decision as always. Not based just on the blood test. But on the clinical presentation with the patient saying what they can see what they can feel they examine you. And of course, the testing I mean that holds true for a variety of different medical problems. And of course, lime disease is probably one of the most tricky because there are a lot of people have lime disease, but the blood test doesn't show it because the creature can be inside your cells and evade your antibodies. So. There has to be evaluated very very specific way. So what is there is there? Any other type, of course of adventure and done other causes for what the dryer the stomach. Dry and the dry mouth. Could be some people have issues with fillings near tea, or they have heavy metal exposure that can that can create the symptoms. Sometimes allergies will do that. Because your body is tired of trying to make some of those natural liquidity tears to help to flush away things that you might be allergic to. So there are a variety of other underlying causes and again for the stomach and kids would be food allergy it could be bacteria, virus, fungus, parasite, etc. Did you take the carves out of your diet to try to improve your stomach? Yeah. Yeah. I start definitely last week. Checking the cars and start try take take the carbs, the grains completely out. And then let us know what happens. Thank you so much for your call. Okay. Phone lines are open if you'd like to call in do. So now, let's go to Perry in Brooklyn. How are you? Great. It's another Bopper knowing your air palm. Vitamin C. And all these other accounting. Rubies are not what a scam. Well, no, well, I just told you guys before and you could look this up online, and you can prove him to be wrong. He obviously clearly has no experience in doing any of this. And he clearly hasn't taken courses, you know, from the American college of advancement in medicine or the American. Academy of anti-aging medicine. The proceedings of the National Academy of sciences, you could write this down. The preceding of the National Academy of sciences has terrific study on intravenous vitamin c helping to selectively kill cancer cells. So you could look that up online. He obviously has the scene that because he doesn't get online to look at those things if you even look at intravenous vitamin c studies and you put that into scholar dot Google. Okay. Which is all the medical research exists. There are there are four hundred nine thousand results of studies on high dose vitamin C IV coming from facilities all over the world. Now, I don't understand how a person who. And this is a doctor is actually a doctor. No because it's not fair. Home on the radio gone all the stages. Yeah. I mean, I still don't know who that is. And I don't know what his his experience or his training is. But you know, you anybody else can go to scholar dot Google dot com and just plugging introverted intravenous vitamin c and you'll see four hundred thousand nine results new insights to vitamin c from college review of high dose vitamin seen travec as an anticancer agent. You know, four hundred thousand four hundred thousand it's not something that well, maybe. Linus Pauling who had two unshared Nobel prizes was one of the most brilliant men of our time and certainly of all time, and he was a huge proponent of vitamin c he and you and Cameron started doing vitamin c research years and years ago, probably forty fifty sixty years ago. But you have to look at this information. And this is not just you know somewhere. Forgive me for people that might live in Timbuktu someone in Timbuktu said. Yeah, vitamin C is good. There are studies from the national health studies from the preceding the National Academy sciences. So, you know, I think realistically you have to look at a large body of information instead of just a small amount of information. This. Dr obviously does not do nutritional medicine. A cancer doctor or no. Can I bit therapy uses radio thirty while? Yeah. That's because he wants people to come in and spend twenty to thirty or forty thousand dollars on his treatment. So I I know who you're talking about. But he's the one anything to get into way of his radiotherapy. And poor pines never ever ever seen any of a work. It's not all I can tell you you can go and look at four hundred nine thousand articles studies four nine thousand. So he's protecting his ability to charge more money for treatment. So that's basically it. That's my opinion, you know, but I can show you and you could look online go online now, go to scholar dot Google dot com. And look at those studies on intravenous vitamin c. Nine thousand articles. I'm not gonna continue to go on and talk about what he says. He doesn't say you could read the info and make your mind up on your own. There are a lot of doctors that are traditional doctors who don't believe in anything beyond what they do. And in many cases, I think it's just wrong like the doctors who prescribed weight loss pills like doctors who might use drugs that have bad side effects. So, you know, I just believe in being dramatically safer. I believe in getting results. So and that individual doesn't have stage four cancer patients still alive after years after years as does Dr foresight than I've seen it. Years ago when I went to his first course there were seven hundred people that had spectacular survival with stage, four cancer, and he used a variety of things, including a blood test sent out to Greece to look at. What has the most effect on killing the cancer vitamin C IV's three times a week? And then the intravenous twice a week with a little bit of insulin to lower the blood sugar opened up cancer cells and put an either vitamins some of the lowest dose of chemo. It's called instantly temptation therapy. And he's got the greatest cancer results in the world. So no one's better than Forsyth. Okay. Let's go to our next caller. Let's go to Gerald in Cleveland. Hi, how are you? Great. Yeah. I'm looking in my catalog about vitamin d. Doctorate one Packers track. Fifteen thousand dollars once. Sure. Would probably be allowed to take at once. I mean, most of our patients when we check their blood and even ones who are low in vitamin c we give them five thousand units and reject him to make sure they're in the right ranges, obviously, it's d three. Okay. So ideally, you know, the vitamin d three is the one you want to have, you know, in your body at good levels throughout the course of the entire day. So that's why we'll test will put people on recommendations and retested adjust accordingly because some big studies in Europe that have been running for twelve years or more talk about vitamin d decreasing the risk of cancers by a great deal by seventy seven percent. So for me three. Three d three's. The best..

"It's going to be cheaper. It's become more efficient technology is overcoming the traditional mining and transport and refining operations. Well, I think part of the reason that infrastructure might get pushed forward is that companies want it, which is part of it. Right. Given. This is the loop. Right. So this is part of companies recognizing that resiliency in the market is about being carbon smart, if it's because it's cheaper that might be why that's kind of what this is talking about. So it's kind of circling around the same point here. And that is this article, we are this article is saying that it will be the smart business decision of the future to be more carbon-neutral period. I'm not saying that I'm saying that the only choice in the future will be carbon smart, and it will not be up to those who are using the energy at all. They'll just I mean that tomato will still come from Mexico, and it'll still be cheaper. But it will be on the come in here on a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle, and that's the only difference and to the actual end price of that tomato. It will still be the difference than it is now. Then you have to move on. But I would argue. Mexico could become the SUV our economic hide and America could be doing all the labor for Mexico. What you'd be an end? We were like we build a wall that we can get over there and get the good jobs like this could happen to but. Just I think there's a there's a there's a there's a hump to get over on all of these things where the for a split amount of time for whatever it is. It will cost slightly more to do the greener thing for whoever it is. That's that was yesterday. I don't think we're not for all things. We're not yet. It's coming, but that's still a fiscal decision that somebody somebody has to make volumes. It's cheaper regardless. I don't think it because. It can't be it won't immediately. There's always a hump where you're changing infrastructure where things are more expensive. Well, okay. So so to that point, you're right. And to that point I think if you're an established large international trucking company, you may not make that jump just yet. So there is a mechanism of reinvents Harmon intensive company, but I don't think that I think it's a dollar intensive company. And I think it's the dollar that drives it, and it's not going to have. I mean, you will have companies come out and tell you, hey, for the love of carbon reduction, we did this completely transformative thing where we have all electric big rigs from tesla. Okay. We do this for the carbon footprint that sounds great to the public. But they also realize we don't have to do oil changes. We don't have articles about. Marvan's as everything to do dollars. And that I'm saying that's going to that's going to be the thing that does is cheaper better more fish, whether you believe it or not you're saying the same thing that the article said, okay moving on mechanism Yeston. What did you bring? Oh, it's. I have. This is I should have been ready for this transition better. Because now the awkward. Joe Joe monkeys life for me. DNA of an extinct monkey called zero three six as been sequenced revealing that it was most closely related to South America's team monkeys. But this monkey this. This zero three is no ordinary DT monkey first of all it was not found in South America. But it is rare primate of the Caribbean. This the Yoho go stuff in the beginning. Destroy thought to have taken to the seas in search of adventure eleven million years ago, or maybe washed out to sea doing some sort of terrible storm remain such monkeys onto floating vegetation long enough to land in Jamaica. Then the interesting morphological auditees. This. I'm like any other monkey in the world zero three was a slow moving tweed tree dweller relatively few teeth. It had leg bones that made it look closer to rodents leg boats. Unusual parents made it difficult for scientists to work out where it came from what it was related to how it might have evolved. Plus it's extinct, so they have or some bones. They found in a cave in Jamaica. So research published recently in the proceedings National Academy sciences carried out by experts from international conservation charity. That's these logical society of London and London's natural history museum as well. As the American Museum of natural history in New York pretty much everybody..

Scientists were tracking it President Trump was aware of it. And after hearing about the remote possibility of this elongated object being an alien spacecraft. He started pushing harder for the establishment of the space force. After we were informed that the Pentagon was investigated threat assessment, but identified flying objects a meeting was called by the National Academy sciences committee on Astro biology science strategy for the search of life in the universe. The meeting was held at the university of California Irvine. This citing prompted a meeting this all of this prompted a meeting. Okay. And it was this meeting. It was it was where Jill Tarter the woman who was interested in a more and more and it and it's moving through space. She's one of the world's best known leaders in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. She stated that SETI the search for extraterrestrial intelligence should change its name. And what tartar said she she explained that the search for extraterrestrial intelligence generates an incorrect. Perception of what scientists in this field of study, we're actually doing she said a more appropriate title for the field. She said would be the search for techno signatures or signs of technology created by intelligent alien civilizations. Now to me has been the secretly these scientists who scant space space singles Russian treachery civilizations may have some of the pawn something that may be a signal from an extraterrestrial technology rather than direct conversations between biological entities. Amoah sent a signal a more Moore was an alien spacecraft. They didn't tell us, but it was enough to prompt meetings. It was enough to get President Trump to consider the space force. It was enough to release the information about the threat assessment of UFO's. That one little sighting of his big one hundred foot long, whatever it was scientists.
