I've got so many questions for you but let me start with us. Because we're you know we're focusing in on allergies during the worst season ever and it's possible connection to heart disease so what are your top for herbs and supplements for allergies and heart health. Well i mentioned course attended. That's number one. I love vitamin d. I mean vitamin is so important You know not only in in nineteen you know. People with the highest blood levels of vitamin d do not get to complications from cove nineteen. That's very very interesting. So i would tell any person. Suffering from allergies take vitamin d as well as a preventive kobe. Nineteen because i mean taking five thousand units a day will not hurt you over the in Along allergy season. I like n single system and we call it neck and ac lee. The fda is taken off the market. Because it's so medicinal. I mean. I i have loved naqvi years It's broken down to glutathione.

Which again i think is very very important you know. In this day and age of you know killer bacteria viruses et cetera. Because one of the things about co q. ten that we need to know about It sort of puts a blanket on inflammatory mediators and the problem with inflammatory mediators and a lot of people know about c reactive protein into lose six and kappa. These are inflammatory. Cytokines released in the body In response to inflammation and and and the release of these covert nineteenth can be disastrous but coenzyme q ten not only puts a on these they help to prevent these Inflammatory mediators but co q. Ten supports what we call endothelial cell function which is really the bingo In in hemorrhagic lesions with kobe nineteen. So i'm in when it comes to coenzyme q ten and one of my favorite new ones as antra graph is..

"P K. 15 30 A. M. 93.1 FM. Well, salmon. I mean, excuse me. Pheasants have just been Question mark for over 20 years there used to be Julian's of them on. It was part of traditions and pancake breakfasts as we mentioned earlier in the program. In the number of peasants have dwindled rapidly. Almost completely. I mean, not that there aren't some wild birds around, but it's nothing like there used to be. So once again, I've gone to the department official Wildlife and Matt Mess. She makes three has been studying this. He's aware of studies they've done. He's going to try to fill us in. Good morning, Matt. Morning, Bob. Hey, nice to have you on. There's a lot of people heading right now for their their pheasant opener. Although thought, as many as there used to be, you know, people, hunters myself included. You know your first reaction when something is it's dear to you is taken away. You wanna blame somebody or something, and and that's just the way it is. Unfortunately. But in this case, I don't think it's any one. Uh, thing. I think it's a combination. Let's start with agriculture, agriculture. Has changed. What have you found out in your studies? How that's affected the pheasant population. Yeah, has and if I could just come in a up in a word, I think it's intensification, you know? Um We find through work with USGS that you referenced that we've been doing over the last 10 years. We've we've wrapped up now, and we're kind of looking toe make some moves in terms of taking some action on the ground, But what we found was that Again and again. Ah, in the mathematical models that us she has put together around the state, no matter you know, north to south or we used to ask throughout the valley. Uh, it's usually these interactions with crop type on acres planted s O. So these these these agricultural indices that come right to the top of the models. So we can talk more about why that is, but it seems like it's the type of agriculture you know, in the way it's being done that that shows up as the major driver. Yeah, well, I mean, You know, years ago, they didn't have lasers to level fields. They did you know, they didn't worry about farming every last square foot of lamb. They didn't worry about. We defense Rosa that provide cover, and now you drive to the farm land. And if you could look back 20 or 30 years, it's a whole different landscape, isn't it? It really is And like you said, I mean, you can probably see farther because its laser leveled and most of the you know we'd be vegetation is not there. Uh, that cover is crucial for peasants for escape from predators. Um, for you, really? Uh, For reproduction in the spring. I mean, they need more of a Ford component to produce those those bugs that those chicks they're going to rely on in the spring, but and that covers critical year around. And with the followed feels that we see these days because of the water deliveries and the real currents. That's kind of come upon us with the drought. Um you know this on the back of West Nile, and uh and on the back of rice, straw burning going away? We've got a kind of a cavalcade of things that are crunching down on presidents. Yeah, it is, And it's too bad, but you know, mad that could be in the agricultural thing. What? What does the part does the department have a plan or at least a possible scenario where that situation could be improved? Yeah. I mean, you know, to be honest, I mean, it's probably not a plan that comes from saving peasants specifically, but But I do see opportunity and that I mean, we have all kinds of fester for creating habitat for pollinators. You know, which was agriculture depends on Um, you know, we have imperil species in the valley like the tri colored black bird. Which it very it requires action. I mean, these are all Opportunities that would require the habitat that presents requires so that cover those Forbes, Um So I think, looking ahead, you know, multi species kind of activities on the ground where we can utilize different funding sources to do that. Yeah, and that's where I see this going in terms of, you know, open It's kind of ironic, Don't you think, Matt that we have to? We have to, uh depend on taking care of threatened and endangered species in order to improve the pheasant situation. It really is the right way would have protected those endangered species. If we had been taking care of the best, exactly. They are, Uh However you and I talked briefly and another scenario plays that way we can get into pesticides. But you know the pesticides have always been there, and nobody wants to really talk about it. But that's got to be part of the equation. I don't know how much But you know, like we said earlier, it's no one reason. It's several smaller reasons, and when the population dwindles, it's no different than the population, For example of bighorn sheep in the Southern Sierra's Ah, they're doing fine. And except when their numbers drop now, any predation on him by mountain lands is a serious thing. Now, any pheasant die offs from pesticides becomes more of an impact. Um Have your studies shown any indication that that could at least be a partial problem. Yeah. Yeah, it has. And you said something That was pretty important and that you know, we way actually haven't seen changes in the overall amount of pesticide being laid out there on the landscape. What we have seen is changes in the types of pesticides. And that, you know, And since the nineties, we've seen these neonicotinoid pesticides come onto the scene. Um And the research that that the, uh we've reviewed from others and compiled with USGS suggests that magic next turn, I'd pesticides have direct and indirect for effects for pheasants. And more so than those earlier, you know, gonna phosphate? Uh, like those pesticides. So, so they're both eliminating these Those insects that presents depend on, but they also decreased brain activity so that you know that says Insert, Uh Way don't really understand or know how that effects survival in the grand scheme of things. A difficult, difficult problem, isn't it? It really is, and it's tough to tease those things apart. You know, Like I said, I mean, we see this affect come to the surface with the type of crop land. But you know is that because of the type of crops is that because of barley and winter wheat going away, or is that more to do with the way that we're doing the agriculture and it's just hard to teach those things apart. Yeah. Uh, well, we can touch on we tell you what, we'll continue it on that fame. If you don't mind, Matt to stay with us through a break. We'll kind of address one other issue. And then I know that you and I talked about a little light at the end of the tunnel, especially on public areas would talk about that as well. So I appreciate you holding on. We're talking with meth Matt measuring from the department official wildlife environmental scientists. Known for years as associate biologist, and they're devoted people will be back with Matt right after this quick break, President elect.

Medical Residents To Receive Education On Health Effects Of Climate Change
"Teaching doctors about the health effects of climate change is growing from medical schools to the residency programs where new physicians put their skills to the test. But skeptics wonder if it's appropriate for doctors to learn how climate change can affect Human Health Martha Bebinger of member station W. R. in Boston Begins Her story in clinic exam room. I just remember for so many months it was hard for you to walk. There are three people in this exam room doctor Gora. A resident he's training and seventy one year old Steve Kerns who is recovering from West Nile virus, Kerns remembers the mosquito bite on his neck but very little about the brain infection that landed him in the hospital for a week for at least six months after that. I felt like every five minutes I was being run over by a truck I couldn't work. I couldn't walk very well. And I couldn't focus. A wondered for bit if I'd ever get better now, almost two years later Kern says he's back to about five hours a day on the job making windows and doors, and he started reading again the sounds like you've made tremendous progress. Dr. Charlotte Roses is a third year primary care resident at Cambridge Hospital. It seems like tremendous progress. that. It was scary. It was scary. It was it was definitely scary us and I'm not scared anymore although. Can I get worse now over again, Dr seuss sympathizes with the fear West Nile is still rare. There were no cases in Massachusetts before two thousand and two in two, thousand, eighteen year a mosquito bit kerns cases had climbed to forty nine mosquitoes love warm temperatures and so when temperatures increase mosquitoes can have breeding seasons the virus itself West alka replicate faster and they. Bite more more active Basu learned a lot of this while treating, Kerns.

This is something that needs to be more directly integrated into the curriculum because I think it's going to have such a huge impact on human health. There are no approved curricula for hospitals that might want to tell emerging. Lung specialists about longer pollen seasons as temperatures rise or teach new emergency room physicians to consider more waterborne diseases for patients with fever and diarrhea. But Pediatrician Rebecca Phillips born at Emory University has just published. A framework hospitals can use as a starting point. Patients want physicians to be able to provide guidance on things that affect their individual help. We have this accumulating body of.

"Potter, your host gear on WGN radio and before I moved to West Nile, and what it's doing across the American west, which is much of the same of what it did across the midwest several years ago, I just wanna retouched the on the department of natural resources, the other individual who was not to be inconsideration is state Representative Jerry Castillo, who's from downstate, Illinois. He would fall into the mold of being state legislator who moves over to run the department of natural resources as Joel Bruns wall. Did as Wayne Rosenthal did. So he would be the third basic with one exception. Mark Miller in between the third individual to leave the legislature and come over to the department of natural resources. I don't personally know, I representatives Castillo if he is the selection, I do know that he has a long supported the fundamental tenets of hunting and fishing and outdoor recreation in the state of Illinois. So he would not have the discussion that we had a moment ago about individual being appointed who actually not only does not share those values, but it's adamantly opposed to those values. So before governor Rauner left office, one of the recommendations made him was that the director that partners natural resources have maintained in held a hunting. And or fishing license for the previous three years many states have this requirement. Unfortunately, in the last year is administration did not get the traction that it should have received in which is probably why we're looking at potentially where we are right now. But it is just expected at the individual who's going to run department natural resources has a hunting and fishing background, just as you would expect the individual doing your taxes can add two and two and has a and has a certified public accounting degree. It's just goes with the territory. They don't go to an accountant doesn't who's not a CPA to do your taxes? We shouldn't have someone to run the department natural resources. It doesn't fundamentally support and participation hunting fishing. We'll know very soon I wanna switch now to West Nile several years ago, actually a decade or more ago West Nile swept through the mid west. And you may recall, it's really devastating impact on songbirds and then on many game birds grouse. In particular, rough grouse also it had a big impact on crows and ravens all of their populations declined. Very steeply West Nile is now really driving in the American west. And it is hitting sage grouse, particularly hard and sage grouse in many places are threatened species in some places they may even be dangerous species has not taken place yet. So the reason I'm talking about it is because Washington doesn't seem to understand what's really taking place. Not the first time conservation organizations love to raise money around crisis. Is that they think they can solve or if they can't solve them. Just raise money around crisis fish and Wildlife Service and the government logged throw money at things that are crisis. They have said that the reason the sage grouse is declining. So precipitously is due to the changes in habitat in the American west that there's so much sage brush being removed orlean gas drilling the habitat base that sage grouse require is in dire shape. I spent a lot of time in the west I recently visited with a number of ranchers who are very very active and sage grouse restoration efforts do voluntary efforts on their ranches to preserve habitat. And and it is an absolute fallacy. That the destruction of habitat is causing the sage grouse precipitous decline. Destruction of habitat is not occurring at the rates that would lead to the kind of decline. We're seeing in fact areas of of Idaho were sage grouse have just imploded in population numbers. The habitat hasn't changed in about one hundred years. Certainly hasn't changed in the last fifty years, but the US government bureau of land, reclamation, PR, P, and other groups don't wanna hear this. They want to say that it is due to gloss and habitat. Unequivocably the people on the ground in the west say sage grouse decline is due to West Nile virus, first and foremost, it is hammering the birds, and then Secondly is an incredible increase in avian predators. Hawks. Owls eagles all kinds of birds of prey so and there's also been a bit of a drought in the west for a number of years. None of those factors are good for sage grouse. None of those factors have anything to do with. Clearing, a sagebrush habitat destruction. So what we're really looking at a complete disconnect. There are indeed areas of Wyoming where there's oil and gas Gelo taking place in traditional sage grouse habitat that I'm sure is impacting the birds, in fact, we could just say, we'll just assume unquestionably. It's impacting the person in the scope of the American west that that is a tiny dot on the landscape. There is not a energy drilling taking place in Utah or in Idaho. Or in Nevada, they have not moved in for oil and gas and Bill Kaiser things that landscape in those states, and yet sage grouse are plummeting West Nile moved in the birds that will survive West Nile virus will become immune. We'll be immune to it in their offspring. That's what's happened. That's how humans and wildlife survive diseases throughout time. The few birds that survive will be immune to it and West Nile will pass through the system. In the meantime, it's wrecking havoc as are the avian predators. So next time you get an appeal from the Sierra Club or somebody saying you must donate to help us save the western sagebrush to save the sage grouse. I think you ought to step back and ask is that really the problem because I think most people who live on the land. So the real problem is this disease West Nile, avian predators, and the US fish and Wildlife Service and bureau of land management, all the conservation organizations. Don't want to hear that because you can't really raise money are you going to raise money if the if the number one problem is is a disease West Nile virus that that you're not gonna treat or the avian predator increases are causing such a substantial decline. Nobody's gonna raise money around that. But I have a feeling at the end of the day. That's really how much bigger factor in what's taking place. And that's not something you're going to get in your mail or here for the bureaucrats in Washington who just want to raise more money to solve the problem. They can't solve.
