Why would you need puberty blockers if you were born this way? 'cause you don't need puberty blockers, these people are insane.

"You mentioned about virtual appointments pre pandemic. how are you using virtual technology. And where are you at the differences really nine day so virtual technology was used a little bit for patients who were not able to reach us. Were coming from a long distance or maybe we needed to have some guidance for their local provider So it was occasionally used but now it's part of our daily practice and so you know we may have a face to face visit initially with someone and then we may follow up with them in a few months. Virtually so We've incorporated virtual appointments into many. Different sub specialties. In ophthalmology were really well. It's been very important to keep patients for example patients with macular degeneration Where we can do. Some screening can develop a protocol for them to follow but they don't be to see the provider may be every single visit And we can touch base virtually or they can get their testing or a procedure and then leave So we're doing a combination of in person and virtual visits and i think that's really helped to keep everyone safe as as you've been saying safety is critical. The pump ophthalmology mayo clinic has done a wonderful job at doing that. But did you see patients freaks awful nervous at first to come in and the detrimental effect there. it's a great question.

And other people really don't and then we have patients with many different risk characteristics as some people have Other diseases that put them at a higher risk for Problems if they did contract kobe. So everyone's comfort level was a little bit different. I think the main take home message is that you know if you have decreased fitschen if you have an ocular disease it is a safe thing to do to come to mayo clinic and receive care. And if you postpone treatment there may be your reversible vision loss that you really don't want to encounter so Follow up in the department of ophthalmology to save place.

"For the rest of the hour, Looking at how cells age and whether there's anything that can be done to slow, stop or even reverse. That process has DNA ages. It gains sort of dust bunnies. Extra method groups tacked on and those metal groups can affect how the genes themselves are expressed without changing the actual sequence of genes. Work published in the journal Nature. Researchers are looking at whether reversing that meth elation can sweep away some of the craft and reprogrammed the cells back to a more youthful state. And it can, at least in mouse. I sells joining me now to talk about the work and what it means is one of the authors of that report. Davidson Claire professor in the Department of Genetics, Co director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging at Harvard Med School. Welcome to Science Friday. Thanks. Sorry. It's great to be on What do you mean, when we say a cell is aging? What happens to this cell over time? Well, this has been a debate for all at least 40 50 years, and there's really a lot that goes on in an aging cells. Many Of your listeners would know about the shortening of the ends of chromosomes called telomeres. We get proteins that accumulate that. Exacerbate Alzheimer's disease. But there's a new theory about aging. That's gaining a lot of traction. And that is that the cells forget how to function correctly because they cannot read their Dina correctly, and that's really what my labs being focused on for the last few years, and we recently published about had to manipulate that process. In fact, your group looked at a way to wind back the clock in the cells to tell us how you did that. What's being discovered. Just in last five or so years about aging is that there is this clock. These Denham Ethel Chemicals that accumulate like crust on Dina, and we can read those very easily. A student in my lab could tell you your rough biological age within about 5% error within about a day. It's pretty easy on what this predicts. Actually, is that How old you are biologically not chronologically. Throw away the birthday candles and some people are older than they would otherwise think in some way younger. And it's also predicts how sick and or healthy they're going to be an old age and this DNA methylation clock we think is part off the system that goes wrong during aging. And what we tested was if we could reverse or scrape off those metal groups and reset the cell. Maybe aging would actually go backwards. And you did this in mice in ice cells cells in the eye? Well, yeah, we're not an eye lab, but we thought the I would be one place to start. Often, people ask me. Did you choose the eye because you thought it would work? In fact, my student at the time one Chang Lu picked the eye because he's he likes the eye, but what we did in the lab was we spent a few years actually one Chang spent a few years Failing to reverse the age of cells and and if he succeeded, typically, those cells became tumor. Genic, in other words, could form tumors in an animal of probably in a human, too. It's very difficult. It turns out to reverse aging partially without going all the way back to a stem cell, which, of course we don't want to do because that's essentially what a cancer is. But he hit upon a really specific three gene combination that was able to partially reversed the age of cells in the dish, but not go too far, and we applied that to the nerves at the back of The eye in mice on git did reverse the age of those cells. So you restored the vision in mice who had lost their vision by turning the clock back exactly right. But what was questioned at the time before our paper was, if you turn the clock back, is it just symbolic? Or does it actually have an effect on the cells similar to if you move the hands of a clock backward? You're not going to change time. This was the belief But what we discovered is that this three gene combination these jeans actually come from from from embryos. Typically a turn on during embryo Genesis. We call it Those three genes actually didn't just wind the clock back, but the cells came back to life and had a youthful Hadn't of genes on and off and they actually started to function as though though young again you don't wind the cells all the way back to where they were in the embryo. He just goes and distant. Yes. So that's the exciting part about this is that If you use this right this combination, the cells have a barrier to losing their identity and going back too far. Which is remarkable that it exists. We just lucked out. We didn't know that that was even possible. But also what's what's fascinating is that the cells Somehow have a backup copy of the useful parents and we're searching for where that information is stored right now. And you're saying that there's no reason why this could not be applied to other cells in the body to reverse aging. Yeah, actually, What's exciting is that there are many labs now who are working on this week. We call it partial epigenetic reprogramming or We're starting to use the word rejuvenation and they're testing other tissues. We we've now tested other cells in the eye, such as the ones that are involved in macular degeneration. It seems to be working there. Colleagues of mine have rejuvenated muscle on there are rumors of other tissues working. There was a recent paper from Spain. Men will surrender No colleague of ours who rejuvenated the brain. In mice and improved memory. So we think that this could be a No, I said a universal way to reverse aging in mammals and perhaps one day in people. Amara Plato, This is science Friday from W. N. Y C studios. So let's get to that part about people because that's what everybody is going to be asking. What do you need to have a proof of concept in people here? Well in the mice what we saw Where we had three different experiments. We saw nerves regrow when they were injured. We saw that glaucoma. Which is I think many people know his pressure induced damage to the retina. On just old age, We took those three systems in mice. And our three gene. Combination actually improved the function of the eye. In all three cases. In the case of glaucoma and old age, we looked at vision. And it was improved on the case of the old mice. It was actually restored to young mice. I came home after getting that result with the lab and said, We wake your blindness, a twist in mice, and I think my wife told me to go into the dishwasher, but it was really interesting fight, but to your question. We think that we can. We want to try to attempt to reverse blindness or vision loss in people and we're going to start with patients who have glaucoma. And when would that start? Well, there's AH local company here in Boston Life Biosciences that's working towards that. It's probably a couple of years at least before we start to Put the gene therapy as it is right now into patients, but we're working as hard as we can to safely make that possible. You know, people are going to hear this interview and they're gonna want to get In on this treatment, or perhaps even the tests themselves. Is there any way to do that? No, not not yet. It Z. Not at the stage where I would say we know enough about it. It is a very powerful Potential medicine. That's doing things that we thought were impossible just a few years ago, but it was not the point where we can treat anybody. You know this is for most medicines, but particularly when it comes to gene therapy. This is Truly rewinding the clock and we don't know some fundamental things such as. How long does the effect last? How many times can you repeat the process? So we've engineered out gene therapy to be induced herbal. What That means is we can give a mouse and hopefully patient Ananta biotic that turns the jeans on for, say, three weeks. On, Then you turn it off. And then perhaps you could turn it on a few years later, if you needed to with your doctor's permission. That's where we're heading. But no, Please don't contact me asking for any treatments just yet. Well, this sounds amazing doctors and Claire, We wish you all the best of luck here. Thanks Ira really appreciate the chance to be on. David Sinclair is a professor in the Department of Genetics and co director of the Paul in Flint Center.

U. seventeen years old and apparently he's lost his eyesight because of all the junk food that he's been eating since elementary school no defined junk food chili Ammar so his diet consists of fries chips white bread processed ham and sausage and he's been eating that since he was in elementary school I guess when he was fourteen he goes to the doctor he complains of being tired and at that time he was diagnosed with anemia and beat vitamin deficiency right well then he started to lose his hearing. then he has trouble seeing now he had can't see at all his vision loss is permanent because of something they say is optic neuropathy which is rare but can happen as a direct result of a bad diet nutrition unbelievable so now well here's the thing this teens diet of fries chips in white bread sounds identical to my fifteen year old daughter Kaila is where he's different this team is different because at least he ate ham and sausage so you've talked on the show about your concerns about your fifteen year old eating less you say like a toddler your typical let's go through each meal breakfast what is your daughter typically have kix cereal with milk and lunch of macaroni and cheese probably from Pinera. and dinner cheese pizza. so should that's kind of she she has a very limited it may be a cheese quesadilla. or a grilled cheese sandwich see I'm I'm I'm laughing because it sounds like something my five year old would do and I would hope in the next ten years eventually other health here you know all I rider guns for pasta with butter but just pasta in but what do you think it would take your fifteen or do you think if you share this story and granted it's a rare thing that happened but still this is happened he said look this this teenager in the U.

"Can a junk food diet because someone to go blind researchers at the university of Bristol in England say that's what seems to have happened to one teenager they published a case study in the medical journal annals of internal medicine NPR's Alison Aubrey reports several years back a fourteen year old boy went to the doctor complaining that he was tired at the time doctors said he appeared healthy he was not overweight took no medications but his diet was bad really bad according to the report he ate mostly white bread chips and bits of processed meat the fact is that the boy was eating so much junk food that's researcher Allen Taylor of Tufts University he was not involved in the case study but he agreed to review the findings force he says it is very unusual for a team to develop the condition that this team did it's called optic neuropathy optic neuropathy is an inflammation of the optic nerve. these information from your eyes to your brain usually it's a temporary condition but in the reported case study the teenagers vision loss was permanent so Taylor says he'd like to know more actually the diagnosis is quite puzzling to me perhaps there were other issues with this teenager but Taylor says the case is an opportunity to point out to people that poor diet can lead to vision problems consuming a diet rich in such poor quality carbohydrates can in fact compromised vision now this usually does not happen during the teenage years it's much more common later in life Taylor and his collaborators studied about twenty thousand people to see how their diets influence to the risk of age related macular degeneration which tends to occur after age sixty we found that the more you eat the junk food diet the greater your risk for macular degeneration is and the look the more you with a healthy diet the less you have a risk for macular degeneration at a time

Fans knew Andre the giant as the eighth wonder of the world, but friends and loved ones had their own designation. We spoke by Email with Benjamin Brown. An archivist for world, wrestling, entertainment, or the WWE. He said, under the giant was and still is affectionately referred to as boss, symbolizing, the respect he commanded and was appropriately given long before the towering icon, became a pop culture, phenomenon under the giant was Andrew SAAF, a French kid who led up somewhat average life until puberty hit born in Grenoble, France in nineteen Forty-six resolve was beautiful baby has older brother and Thuan said an HBO documentary about Andre's life, quote, he was normal his life changing transformation began in his early teens when it became evident that Roussel mauve had to Terry Glenn disorder called acrimoniously the sorter. According to the mayo clinic occurs, when the Patou itary gland produces too much growth hormone during adulthood, causing the bones to increase in size. It typically affects middle aged. Notes, but can happen at any age and what it strikes, still developing kids like it did, and muffs case it can cause a condition called, gigantism, which results in, abnormal increases in height and exaggerated bone growth, Roussel, muffs major physical, transformation occurred in the time between his departure from home at age fourteen to seek employment outside of granola and his first return visit at age nineteen nineteen Eighty-one Sports Illustrated profile reported indeed during the five years young Andre had been estranged from his parents, he'd grown so large that even as mother and father failed at first and even second glance to recognize him or to connect the giant. They had seen on television with the gangly dreamer, who would hide himself to Paris so long before. Of continued to grow by the age of twelve he hit six feet, that's one point eight meters and two hundred and forty pounds or a hundred kilos and rapidly grew from there. So he set his sights on a career that allowed him to use his size to his advantage. Wrestling after training with French champion Frank. Val wa who later became his manager worse enough begin competing under the name zone. Fair in Montreal and monster off in Japan. The young giant began making a name for himself, as a baby-faced colossal, competitor and bell wa introduced him to legendary wrestling promoter and Smick man senior as the founder of the world, wide, wrestling federation, or WWF, which later became the WWE McMahon made a few suggestions to increase Russa muffs. Potential success, including a name change McMahon dubbed, the wrestler, Andre the giant and sent him off to compete around the world.

Andre was both the leader of the locker room and measuring stick for all those who came after Andre the giant was intelligent multi-lingual an exceptional in ring talent. While the wrestler, success is indisputable his eventual size is up for debate most sources claim. He reached a height of seven feet four inches. That's two point two meters, though, according to biography dot com. He was more likely closer to six feet eleven inches or one point nine meters. It's full size Rousseff weighed about five hundred pounds, that's two hundred and twenty six kilos, the wrestler's unique physicality led to plenty of opportunities outside of the ring, including a memorable role in the nineteen eighty seven film the prince.

His best friend Tim white told WWE had go into a restaurant and eat twelve stakes and fifteen lobsters just to quote put on a show and have some laughs. Roussel offer main, too formidable competitor throughout his career taking on titans, like hulk HOGAN, and macho man, Randy savage, but by the early nineteen ninety s the effects of his Akra medically and the massive physical wear and tear of his career had led to severe effects on his health mega is known to cause everything from high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease to spinal cord compression vision loss, resume of grappled with chronic pain, and could no longer endure the rigors of wrestling, he retreated to his North Carolina ranch.
