The Truth About Salt With Dr. James DiNicolantonio
"Let's talk about salt. Why it was demonized. Why it's so important for our health. It was originally demonized just due to blood pressure and very similarly there were scientists back in the nineteen fifties demonizing salts similar to how we demonize saturated fat they would look correlations to wear certain populations that consumed a higher amount. It was correlated that you know high salt intake may increase blood pressure. So actually it was a it was a clinical study looking at six populations but insult came out in the you know mapsi hunt. Basically fifty years later looked at fifty two countries and when you eliminated the floor on primal basically you know population that were consuming very very low. Nounce you actually had a drop in blood pressure salt intake increase so they were only basically. The studies were short studies looking at a limited amount of populations trying to find a correlation. And really that. That's where most of our guidance comes from because all our nutritional guidance stems from the nineteen seventies in basically were. This was before you had systematic reviews and meta analyses extra clinical studies in in those dietary goals that came out in nineteen seventy seven and then the first dietary guidelines in nineteen eighty. They started recommending. Low-sulphur everyone a low saturated fat low total fat high amount of carbohydrate intakes. So everything really stems from there and that's really were basically we went wrong so these were basically large epidemiological studies looking at kind of surveys. What people were consuming is that correct and also obviously which those studies can show correlation. But they can't show a direct causation. There were just hypothesis that were brought about and sometimes hypothesis when when scientists say them enough they no longer become hypothesis. They become you know scientific truth. I guess you could say but ultimately we didn't really have true interventional studies that were demonstrating that actually was causation exempt. I mean even worse to is. They were cherry picking the population. You're looking at it. Same thing happened with saturated fat. They cherry picked the six countries. Study in even though there were a total of twenty. Three countries So when you add it. All the countries back there was no increase in heart disease with saturated fat in same thing with salt when you added fifty countries back. You didn't see that rise in blood pressure with higher salt

"two countries" Discussed on News Radio 920 AM
"Is an understatement. And timing is everything in life. So right now we have Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin behind closed doors for their summit in Geneva and we have right here with us former Secretary of State under Donald Trump. Mike Pompeo. Good morning, Mr Pompeo. Mr. Secretary. So nice to have you here. Well, good morning. It is great to be with you, sir. Thanks for having me on the show today. I appreciate it. This is great timing, So we're going to get to why you're here and this pack that you have formed, but I've got to ask you the question. What's going on behind closed doors there? And are you concerned? I am concerned, but I hope because we always want America succeed. I hope that President Biden is acting in ways that he hasn't been in these last few days in a trip to Europe, and frankly, these 1st 150 days. Hopefully showing American resolve. I hope he is fearless about talking about how great an exceptional nation America is. He's not apologizing for us. He's talking about the things the Russians have done to us. His responding to them. He's making clear won't just be about What you say about words. But it will be about actions the United States is prepared to take. That's how that's how President Trump and I handled Vladimir Putin when we met with him, it's the right approach where I haven't seen that kind of steely eyed resolved from President Biden. But that's what America needs, and I hope that's what's happening. I know the Trump administration's philosophy was in a good philosophy, negotiate from a position of strength. I don't see this as a position of strength. We just gave Vladimir Putin what he needs to stay in power, which is selling oil. We allowed him to open up his pipeline while we closed our own. No, it's it's crazy, and we joined the Paris climate accords further hobbling our own energy industry to the benefit that the Russians and the Chinese I mean, the Paris climate accord is a gift. To those two countries. Markets do a darn thing for environment and, you know, they also reedited nuclear agreement. They extracted nothing for it. They they they allowed the colonial pipeline to be attacked, moving, preventing us from moving oil up and down our Eastern seaboard. So far as I could tell the response was pretty weak. Putin would have seen that he was walking in today's meeting likely, very confident that he could push President Biden around. We're speaking with Mike Pompeo, former secretary of state under Donald Trump, and also forming a new pack. We're going to get into in a second, but Mr Secretary, the other issue, China Wuhan. I did hear you. Another interviews say that you have grave concerns and do believe that the virus leaked from the lab. I do believe that I think it's far and away the most likely Place that this came from it could be wrong. Happy to learn more about the science that we've seen to date today that we see that they suggest that this came from Wuhan Institute of Virology. We also know importantly, we know enough now to hold the Chinese accountable. We know this virus came from Wuhan. We know there were doctors that were there. Went to the hospital with symptoms that looked and observed, just like covid. We know that they continue to cover up to the state creating risk that this could happen again. We have to hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable. They took actions that result in the death of three million people around the world. Hundreds of thousands here in the United States and we still have lots of American family. Are out of work can't find can't find a way to take care of the families because of what the Chinese Communist Party did. We need to hold them accountable for the Wuhan virus, it was was as destructive as anything they could have foisted upon the world. We're talking with Mike Pompeo, former secretary of state under the presidency of Donald Trump. Now you are launching A new pack Calves pack champion American values and and the mission here is to win the midterms. Do you feel like you're in a good position right now Republicans are in a good position when it comes to the Senate and the house in terms of control. I am optimistic, but there's a long ways to go. It's going to take an awful lot of hard work. I've been at it already in his last 100, plus days since I left my role as secretary of state, doing dozens of political events, helping candidates from state legislative offices all the way up there. Folks who are running for the United States Senate Gaffe Pack is designed to look, I was a young cavalry, soldier.

They will go see that and the C cat pack in action, the work that I and my team are doing, and I hope they'll join during the cavalry alongside of me. Well, speaking of that team, and I have to ask you this question, Mike Pompeo name comes up all the time. As a person who will be running for the Republican nomination for president in 2024.

Um what? What are you? What are you concerned about the most right now coming out of that meat when they come out of that meeting?

Help will be more cyberattacks Hill.

Talking Israel With Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz
"In two thousand five congresswoman debbie wasserman schultz introduced a house resolution urging then president george w bush to proclaim a month that would recognize the more than three hundred and fifty years of jewish contributions to american culture. The resolution passed unanimously. As did a similar one in the senate and the month of may was selected as jewish american heritage month. Debbie wasserman schultz joins us now to discuss some of those contributions congresswoman. It's good to be with you again. Welcome back to people the pod. Thank you. I feel like it would be awkward to start our without acknowledging what is unfolding in israel as we speak and the debate about israel that's unfolding in congress. You gave a very moving speech on the house floor last week. In which you said. Israel has taken serious steps to deescalate the conflict while hamas has only escalated. Its attacks so it's especially irresponsible to demonize israel's conduct while ignoring her right to self-defense. Why is there such disagreement. And what do you believe. Some of your colleagues do not understand about israel. I honestly think this is an example of the necessity of educating our colleagues about the importance and his history of the unc. Israel relationship the importance of bringing members of congress to israel so that they learn more not just about the orange jewish state but about the beacon of democracy that israel is the similarities between our two countries and israel's identical priorities in terms of standing up for injustice and the basis of their laws being such that equal treatment under the law is a priority whereas when you're dealing with hamas you can't look at how mom it's anything other than a terrorist bernama legitimate political organization. Yes they have had people elected where they try to pretend to be both legitimate political party terrorist organization. You can't be and so education is really the key thing

Why aren't we talking about linked in lincoln as a news feed with comment and share button at the end of last year linked and reported over two million posts and videos and articles course through the lincoln feed. It says it had six hundred forty five million users. One hundred eighty million of those are in north north america and yet lincoln has mostly avoided a lot of the controversies in problems of twitter and facebook which would be competitors. The story implies is that this is because it's a more workplace atmosphere that and it also kind of acts as a record of you and your job description and resume if you're trying to look for a job people can look look. Look up and see what you've been up to. Lincoln lincoln also has an internal editorial team of sixty five who right and curate business content and many of its best features like messaging people that you are already connected to require you to pay yes so it's a different animal than twitter and facebook because you have to pay to get the most most of it l. o.

This one was really focused. Just around workplace environments lincoln has been able to expand its mission without undermining the quality of its community and maybe what i'd like to suggest is that is a better way to approach social networks. Maybe the way we solve some of these problems with facebook and twitter is having more focused communities where people don't want to risk their reputation in that community because they like it right now on facebook and twitter who cares if you risk your reputation with the facebook and twitter because there's no point to it right <hes> linked in very specifically as you might not get hired.

He's an imposing midwesterner who doesn't believe in Marbury v Madison, which is say he doesn't quite by the idea of judicial precedent president. There's only one president. I think you know, that is Donald J Trump. No, not president precedent shut up with your words in your consistency. Maybe Mark Whitaker was saying in saying he doesn't believe in Madison the Marbury v Madison. He wasn't talking about James, Madison or supreme court case about Madison Wisconsin, home of the badgers because as an Iowa Hawkeye Mark Whitaker would go into camp Randall stadium and do battle. What's that? You would not heard that Mark Whitaker was an Iowa Hawkeye football player. Parents. You don't know Mark Whitaker man, who does know Mark Whitaker. Bob house was on morning edition today to vouch for his friends outstanding and upstanding nature. You'll find a man. Who is got a heart of a lion? You don't become a tight end with the big can put ball team playing the Rosebowl. If you're shrinking violet that was an answer to host, Rachel Morton's point. Which is you know, he suggested the entire Russia investigation was a left-wing hoax. Great answer because it's true Whitaker did play football at Iowa. He did play in the Rose Bowl. He had two receptions and twenty three yards not in the Rose Bowl during the entire Rose Bowl season. One ten catch season. Also to be fair that reference to the football experience that forged the man that we know today. It was not the only reference on morning edition. I think that if you know, Matt as I am a lot of other people know that you will know that this is a this is a man who has a very strong core again hearkening back to the eighties. You don't play tight end. So the university of Iowa and take the kind of. Shots hip that he took get up get back in the game. If you're not a person that's got a very strong core.

You're a good person. I don't know. Maybe call me crazy. We've talk about the actual individual and the traits. He has rather than just the position of Tida ended Iowa because we are talking about Mark Whitaker specific Iowa tight end. Who is a very good guy.

"Like he specifically he liked immigrants too much. Dave brat was like immigrants are terrible. And then he won Eric cantor. Didn't even like, I think there's one there's like maybe one speech like in private where he said immigrants are fine. And like I was on earth. And that was the whole campaign. But it lost to the George Mason professor or you could go to his class as an immigrant whose campaign was immigrants or tower, George Mason, professor a weird sort of quasi Molly going on. But anti-trump energy is the reason why Bamber even had a shot, and then to close the gap. You have sort of the bread and butter issues like health care like taxes, and so on and so forth. So I think it's both right like voters both won the Democratic Congress or the democratic house who act as a check on Trump. I think the exit polls say something like, you know, a majority of voters who came out to vote like Trump is a big factor in their vote in those voters sixty percent relate, you get a check on Trump, but may also wanna preserve middle-class entitlements middle class health benefits. And the like, I don't think you have to think there's sort of like a contradiction. They're both are in effect. Which is why I think it's odd that democratic leadership in the house has been like, oh, we're going to work together with Trump. We're going to you know, pass infrastructure. When will that we come again? I think those I think those two things go together because if you look at Trump's sort of sending live traditionally Republican voters or Republican leaning voters window shopping for a new party, Democrats are extended olive branch in the form of focusing on pre existing conditions talk about infrastructure things like that, you know, you're not like hitting the newcomers hard with like abolish, ice or whatever. So, you know. And then I think they're trying to retain these these districts I head for the next couple of years. So they sort they sorted out to start the newcomers easy a little bit. It's so adorable to see the sort of Nancy Pelosi being like we'll be reasonable because that works. It's not gonna freeze doesn't doesn't translate into anything? He just looked like suckers.

"He suffered from an overt racial animus, and yet the amendment to give the franchise back to ex-felons in that state doesn't just pass passes overwhelmingly. And by the way, that's going. You know, there's like forty percent of the black man in in Florida can't vote that is going to be a huge boon to injecting the state with more of these black voters who you're also saying, we'll be the death knell of the very people and the candidates who the Republican party backed it seems at least a little more complex than pure racism. I wouldn't look at that. Nice laced at the campaign that the organizers ran right? The campaign. The organisers ran was explicitly. This will help lots of white people. I'm not sure that the fact that a bunch of. Florida Republicans voted for it necessarily means that they recognize the longterm implications of it. And I think there is something to the fact that the simple fact that the amendment didn't have any sort of black standard-bearer helped its passage, right? There was no personality attribute to it. It wasn't really connected to national politics in a way that Gillam was I think in addition to race there is a real sort of trigger the libs ethos among the Republican electorates such that any democrat. He becomes sufficiently connected to national Democrats gets hit with it. So, you know, betas an unusual case because I'm not sure he could have gotten so close to be didn't become sort of a celebrity. But it certainly the case that you he received people voted against him because they were just like, I don't like the fact that Democrats like that dude. Yeah. But there's negative partisanship. I I'll say it on both sides. And and a lot of polls a lot of polls show that Democrats have worse opinion. About Republicans than vice versa. Well, that that's my, you know, my enduring question that I want one of you to to answer in short declarative sentences is how much Trump and Trump is. I'm really was on the ballot because that was certainly going into the election. Trump really wanted this to be an election about Trump. It seems to me that you know, on the left. I'm not sure we saw Democrats wholeheartedly, you know, engaging in if if one person in five marched where were they? So I don't know that the renunciation of Trumpism was, you know, the the the mandate here and alternatively I don't know how much Trump helped in some of the places where he endorsed. I almost wonder if we're in this other universe where all the kind of oxygen in the room goes to this conversation about this was a referendum on Trump and Trump ISM. But in a weird way like much of what happened was not that or didn't feel like that. I don't know. That's that's just me spit balling. But I think. We have inclined to think it's a referendum on Trump is more than than it may feel just if you look at the coalitions. I mean, this is the demographic shift that Trump started. I mean, the began in two thousand sixteen and was just you know, amplified this time suburban voters white college educated women, especially were just left the Republican party as they did under Trump, and then rural districts, I mean, just really blew up for Trump and helped him win a lot of these Senate seat. So I know it's weird because he's the demographics. Look like it was a referendum on Trump. Then you see the biggest issues that people are voting on its healthcare and Democrats were completely disciplined on healthcare. I don't really know how the to fit together. I mean think you can think of it as anti-trump energy is referred as a ground level for being able to get this the number of democratic votes necessary to win. Like in Virginia seventh district, which w to live in Charleston Virginia, I live in Charleston Virginia, the seventh district is sort of like right over the border of our district. Dave brat who is Republican incumbent loss to Abigail Bamberger who was sort of a newcomer to politics former intelligence officer.

"He had a terrible opponent. I think you only ended up winning by five or so I mean, that's a pretty red state. They picked Mike dewine this year in the governor's race. I want to that one's gone still capable of electing Democrats. But I think it's in the lean read com now, Missouri is gone. That was a bellwether state for one hundred years, whatever it's completely gone. You know, a lot of the states, but Virginia was always a solidly Republican. I know and now it's a solidly blue state. Right. So that's capable of electing Republicans. So North Carolina's turning blue granted, the diversification of the electorate might be the example. But I think that there are ebbs and flows. And I also have this theory about don't want to bore you with this. This sounds like an excuse, but the places where those democratic incumbents in red states got killed like, Missouri. An indiana. You know, Donald the only reason he's actually in the Senate is they chose a terrible candidate with Murdoch last time around, and, you know, Claire mccaskill do you guys? Remember in twenty twelve she wrote this article for politico, how I manipulated the Republican electorate to pick Todd aching because I could beat this tea party monster. So maybe there are only in there on a rented term anyway. So she was very happy with their tricks tricks. Really, right. Right. One reason to be less optimistic. Mike than newer is that. Is that American politics has always fallen along racial axes? But like we're sort of in a unique moment where explicit sort of like, racial animus as part of the conversation. I mean, I I really watched the presidents have closing add on Tuesday. And it's just like it was like breath breathtakingly racist. Right, right. It was it was it was a stone's throw racist for FOX who uses for line. So you have you have explicit racism in political atmosphere. And it's what Trump revealed was sizable constituency of Americans who that's something they want like for a long time. They couldn't get it. And so they kind of like they voted for Republicans sort of disappointing like, I real I really wish Mitt Romney would talk about how you know, the Mexicans are terrible. But he won't vote for him. Anyway, but I'm not going to be happy about it. Remember Mitt Romney was Donald Trump was advising Mitt Romney to go into the birther stuff. Right. Actually trump. If Trump has any real political genius. It's like recognizing what was essentially an arbitrage opportunity, the Republican party that like the the the leadership was rightly avoiding sort of opening this Pandora's box of like awful race baiting and in racial animus, but the base was like no give it to us mainly like injected into our veins. But and it's funny because I think the flip of that is the gender, right, right? It's the other Valence here, which is all these seats that flipped go to women like it's unbelievable. And and I think it's the same principle. This is a metoo election. This is more than one hundred women which is not enough. But it's on women. It's a big big Valence here is that this person who has explicitly been the most bog allied misogynist that any of us has ever seen a somehow drives, you know, all these these women to say like, okay? Well, I mean, we we have to talk about how women vote because I don't understand it at all like Mel Gibson. It is how how. Minna from minner for Mars than women are from. But, but I do think that that the that confounds everything you're saying might because I think that there are just other axes at work in the selection that are that sort of transcend red and blue and that they've very very much. I think swamp any conversation about because the parties are becoming define along this things. Like, it's no longer the case that you can be sort of like a racially conservative democratic either as a democrat. You're you're down for racial pluralism, or you're not then you're Republican and things were dividing that way, then states that have lots of racially conservative whites just going to become more conservative. And if you have a president who's explicit campaign strategy of stir racial panic, then you're going to see that both states. Those voters are just going to come out and both that racial panic, and there's there's no the reverse is is in suburban places women in non whites coming out to vote. Sort of an opposite vision..

"So I guess the big question for about twelve twenty four hours was was it a wave was it an oscillation was it? The kind of big sweeping wave was at a wave. I would say it was a way of I would say the Democrats should own it. I would not believe anyone who wouldn't call it a wave. So we're going to do. Now. I say Hello. I'm Mike Pesca this Dahlia and Jamal and gym each of us will hold forth about our impressions of the wise or the what now is or wherever else we want to take it. So this called laying the predicate, and then they have some more specific questions w you may begin. Thank you. And thank you all for coming out. This was certainly the only election. I remember people Democrats being fired up about like state attorneys general races. Now, we're talking about the state AG. And I was like right because this actually as. Turns out really matters. But it does in a weird way. I lead us down this path of you know, I remember Walter Dellinger who is acting solicitor general under Clinton wrote this great piece for us a couple years ago just saying we are headed in eggs rudely to red states and blue states like to to America's and part of me. Just feels like there's something. I oh, no Jamila. Tell me why I'm wrong. But there's something there's something deeply Jerry being like. Okay. Screw it y'all. We're going to, you know, good luck getting your abortion and Mississippi, but here in California. Everything's sparked me here in California. We give you abortion coupon. I mean, it's beautiful. And there's something I see that makes a certain amount of sense. But it feels a little Hanky inside to say it if you feel like if you are a liberal progressive leftist who has a vision of sort of like an American social democracy. It is a failure. If we. End up in a situation where state support is entirely patchwork Griff, you're lucky if if you're lucky enough to be born in California, and Texas if you're lucky enough, he born in Maryland in Virginia versus North Carolina and South Carolina, then you'll have access to robust they benefit. And if you're not then good luck. You know? I do think that there is as much countervailing information about us trending towards red states and blue states because if I were to say over the last four elections. All right. Tell me the states that are definitely trending red. You might come up with a bunch of these states in the industrial midwest that just went blue. And if I were to say alright gimme the state. I'll grant you the deep south. But gimme the big state. That's going to be read for a long long time and pretty much be this dug in a dictator of where we're going. Well, you'd say Texas, and there's a decent amount of information. Although let's talk about that that Texas. Although there hasn't been a winner of a state wide race for the last. Ninety seven elections like yours here. It's since one thousand nine hundred four, but I went and counted all the Agee's all the land commissioners, who's now George Bush junior every race for a court in Texas since one thousand nine hundred four Democrats are over ninety seven. So let's stipulate that but they're coming back baby. No. But it does seem that this. So again, my thesis is that are we trending towards red and blue quick tell me the way the trends are going, and I think we have as much opposite information as we have confirming information, I mean, you know, you can't say forever about anything. But for for the foreseeable future. We are getting rhetoric blurred. You can just see that. In the divergence between the house and Senate results. I mean, there was an over performance among Democrats in some suburban districts, but there was a like a very big over performance among Republicans in red states. I mean, all these polls that had Indiana and Missouri close they were not close at all. And John tester. He won. But he won by a smaller margin. He was projected to. Yeah. Same with Joe Manchin Arizona's law, closer, Florida. We don't really know what's happening in Florida. But it's definitely closer than the poll said, so I mean, I, you know, if you look at states where? The sort of the percentage of the population. That's white is sort of staying the same not diversifying it all those are becoming redder states. I mean, Ohio, they elected share and Brown grant..

"It's the gist. I'm Mike Pesca going back to one thousand nine hundred maybe further hundreds went back to nineteen hundred. There were thirteen times the president gets elected to find his party in control of the house of representatives of those previous thirteen times nine times, the president manage to hold the house during the midterms and four times the president lost it this time. Donald Trump lost more seats to lose his party, the house than any Republican since Herbert Hoover. And for that guy. It was certain crash that happened between his election in nineteen twenty eight and the midterms of nineteen thirty now George W Bush is not in that category of president whose party lost the house. The first time they voted after being elected that happened. The second time for George W Bush's second midterm elections, and George W Bush went out there the next day, and he acknowledged defeat the press. Conference that he gave his pretty much known for one word. It was a thumping. But I went back, and I listened to it all and the tone the ignoring of reality from George W Bush is so different from what we got out of Trump. I just couldn't believe it start with this. And they cast their vote for new direction in the house of representatives. And while the ballots are still being counted. The Senate is clear the democrat party and a good night last night. Trump never acknowledged this. Never conceded anything. Appreciate the efforts. They've good in for our candidates from did not do this either. He credited himself for the winds. He talked about the places that he campaigned where his candidates one neatly forgetting, Montana, Nevada and West Virginia, he mocked and ridiculed Republicans who are disloyal to him never acknowledging that his loyalty test in South Carolina, one certainly caused a part of the seat same with the Kansas governor race, they ran a disciplined campaign. Their candidates were well organ. And did a superb job of turning out their votes. Trump didn't say anything close to this fee. Couldn't even compliment people in his own party or console those who lost in his own party. He didn't come close to giving a compliment to the campaigns that were run by the other side and realize that the Democrats won thirty seats plus an independent, so they took thirty one from the Republicans in two thousand six and the Dem's did. Well, if anything a little better this time around it's very fair comparison Trump denied that. There was an accomplishment Bush took away. This message. The message yesterday was clear the American people want their leaders in Washington to set aside partisan differences conduct ourselves ethical matter and work together to address the challenges facing our nation. So when Trump was asked because he didn't offer it independently. What lesson did you learn he said this? I think the results that I've learned maybe confronted. I think people like me. I think people like the job, I'm doing frankly. Yeah. So, you know, in the Bush speech, the reason something was remembered was because it stood out. It was colorful. It was different from the rest of that Bush speech, which is pretty much just Dera gore. Etiquette plus reality. Plus good politics. Any of those things would be real news today. One last George W Bush statement from two thousand six I've been around politics a long time. I understand when campaigns in and I know when governing begins back, then such a simple statement of fact, did not play as a glistening virtue today. It would on the show today. I should feel about this question. Who was this Mark Whitaker guy? And can he chip the linebacker then run a simple out? But first, we did a live show in Brooklyn last night, the brilliant Djamil buoy and Dahlia lift quick were there. Jim Newell was there. Seriously, all made me look good.
