First Dream Chaser mission slips to 2022
"Dream chaser has also now slipped to two thousand twenty two so all of the twenty twenties or now slipping to the twenty twenty two range and this is for cargo flights to the s. They have the actual space plane portion of dream chaser. And then they've got. I think they call it the shooting star module that is attached to the back of the plane. That actually is thing that docks to the space station carries a lot of cargo though. Bigger report would carry the solar panels as well. It's kind of like service module that can also contain a pressurized volume and. I've heard that. Dan has been a major area of focus because they also have some department advanced contracts related to that or some maybe investigations around what they do with that kind of module. So there've been some technical issues. They blamed it on covid. Which as i said. That certainly contributes a factor. Because you've got to change operation so much out. There have been some unspecified technical issues there now. This isn't a huge deal because we've seen such a big slip in commercial crew as we talk about on a recent show that the game kind of change there for the is s every year that slipped there the needs for the assess cargo. Manifest are a little bit different. So i think at this point. Now that we're getting into regular crew rotations that's going to become more and more important But we'll see how the dream chaser program shakes out. What is problematic there. It has a knock on effect that could potentially progress problematic to volkan for united launch alliance. Volkan one part of the national security space launch program. So they have to have that thing. Certified in time to launch their first mission in two thousand twenty two the first mission as part of that national security program their first mission right now is slated for twenty twenty one with volkan and that would be launching astro botox lander to the moon. They say that they are still on time to fly. That mission in two thousand twenty. One obviously dependent on astro botox schedule as well. But that second flight would have been the dream chaser mission to the assess. They need to flights before. They're certified to fly national security missions so if they don't have a dream chaser flight to fly in late two thousand twenty one. They either need to fly empty with a demonstrator mass or something like that. They need to find another customer. Hell could they give away the launch to make sure they have someone there so that they're certified in time for that first national security mission. That is a big question mark
Dream Boy And The Poison Fans
"By the time that Emily Fangs reporting this story in March, the controversy around this actor at already gotten so hot that many of his fans refused to talk to a reporter others asked to speak in ways that would not reveal their true identities. NPR, by the way has very strict standard on this, you have to reasonably expect harm to your person or livelihood, and they met the standard there been retributive attacks and death threats. But we're GONNA start our story before all that back when Xiaojun was getting more endorsements than almost any idol in China is twenty eight tall and thin with Pale skin big eyes and understand the role he played in Chinese pop culture. You can look to the TV ads that were scripted with his image in mind. Mike Emily showed me this ad for Esti Lipstick So it starts in this. Hotel lobby most is really warm. Golden Sojourn appears the top of the staircase. He looks down and sees one beautiful woman in the crowd. She looks quite unsure of herself. He, sees this woman. And he can tell you quickens his steps who walks down the staircase briskly and it looks like he's about to approach her. But instead he grabbed golden balloon and he sends it her way with a package attached. The balloon didn't inside is surprise and estee louder lipstick which puts on an all of a sudden. She has confidence she struts out and she takes position on stage in front of a microphone. And you sojourn the crowd, he begins to clap for her and everyone else begins to clap her. As the woman smiles. They're selling the image of him as someone who helps others and to as helper of beauty he's too good to be human. But he's always there helping others be their best selves. Really Shapes. Shenzhen's millions of fans. See Him looks very clean. Looks. Very decent. He looks very gentle. This is an we're calling by her initials is E. IMA passer. Yes life I have never seen someone look at it. Is. E is thirty years old married. and. She was about to become the mother when I talked to her. So she has not the typical style Jonathan? Savage John Fans are usually single women young teenagers, teenagers likely in middle school or high school is e says that. This kind of connector to her friends because they always have something to talk about show. Good looks. And also there is a another reason is because I feel when people are pursuing I'll say when they're Authorian cert- can kind of celebrity they must have fun something in the celebrity that way don't have our self. So is he describes herself as very frank, a very frank and outspoken person maybe even a little harsh and one of the things she ended these most in South Asia is his gentleness so that I feel that is something I want to learn from him because John is portrayed a sweet person. He also needs protection because that gentleness can be taken advantage of in his fans need to. Be the ones who stand up for him here is where China's Fan Culture and actually Asian Fan Culture in general it kind of veers away from even the most intense fan behavior in the West because a lot of fancy it as their job, even their responsibility, not just to admire their idol and to support him but to go so much further. So is he talks about how in these? Media groups, some of which will have hundreds of thousands of followers. Each there are something called a child Wa. So sopra topic, what's called Super Topic or Toha, and which some of the lead fans who devote hours a day to organizing this fans structure, we'll give orders to. Fans beneath them about what they need to achieve for that day. So today, we're all going to click on this one music video and watch it or today we're all going to buy products from this brand because they've signed an endorsement deal with children. Say the broadcaster from the Child Watt who say today when you to do this today when you to do that so you remember that Estee Lauder ad for lipstick according to Chinese media estee Lauder Botox, pitched show in two thousand eighteen sold out not only within the first day of their release but within the first. Hour. Totalling almost six million dollars in sales, and then back on the fan club sites, fans would celebrate what they saw as their success. It's IMMA fine. You want to support your idol by making here she gets the most brand endorsements and makes the most money on behalf of these companies. I get I get what Xiaojun gets out of this he gets. And success money what fans get out of making him. So successful by being particularly influential fan of Superfan you also get a lot of power and influence the majority of his fans are going to be. Young girls in their middle school or high school years. So in real life, they're not going to have a lot of power in Chinese society. But by being a part of this fan group, you become part of this very powerful commercial

Hair Loss, Stress, and At-Home Treatments to Regrow Your Hair
"If you've been noticing more clumps of hair in the shower that could be a result of stress But we don't want to stress you out more because there are things you can do. Look I lost his little Patrick here. Living proof ride here but there are things that you can do right now at home to help that And one of the first things. We'RE GONNA START TODAY. We've got a wonderful guest She is a Harrisburg and she's actually know working with Bosley which I thought was just for men. But he educator there and What's so great is that she cleared up. A lot of the MISC- The misconceptions I had about Knoxville as everyone knows what Doxa Gul's the only thing that has been approved by the FDA that actually does regret hair and is active with the minoxidil though Is that something you know? Just speaking as a not a hair professional It's something that I've heard about right. Rogaine is another big brand that you hear about and I have a girlfriend who had significant hair loss. And that's what she was using. But it meant hawks ultimate always been a little bit scary right so is that other people should not be using or is it something. That's pretty safe for everyone. So there's a two different percentages on it. There's a two percent and a five percent. Typically the women use the two percents and the men used the five percent so You Wanna be able to Access that lower percentage If you feel necessary and then you can like start in slowly but I do recommend that you use at the same time every day And it's just like he would try to think about taking care of any other Any other area of your body. I mean you won't stop brushing your teeth with a certain kind of toothpaste. If you have great results from that so Ryan I mean but you get what I'm saying like do you think like pregnant woman shouldn't use yet so and doesn't make your hair fall out at first a little bit too? Can't that be an effect or am I totally wrong about this. Maybe I'm totally off. I'm sure one out of one thousand. Maybe it fell out but maybe he or she skipped a day or like you said didn't put it on at the same time at the same Torino at like. If you break your routine with these systems you can have a shed you absolutely can but is this something you think. Everybody should be using then. I'm even if it's like the hair. He knew it. If you're if you're like fresh out of Chemo and you just grew your new hair back now. Right no right right right. If you think you're going to get pregnant or you're infertility. No I mean it's kind of common sense. If you have other health issues you should obviously talk to your physician and throw that against the wall but I think majority of people can give it a whirl and just but if you're if you second guesses talk with your doctor so what is that program. Is it like once you start is it. You have to just keep doing it. Is it like a man which we know a lot of beauty things right like if you want Bo talks? You're going to have to keep doing botox to keep the wrinkles away if you want those eyelash extensions. You're going to need to keep doing them. The second you're not gonNA have those lashes if you want hair extensions so is this another thing that you're going to sort of add to your beauty toolkit but it's like once you start to commit to it. Yes if you're seeing results from it you definitely want to keep doing so Hair has three cycles. Everybody's familiar with you. Know Antigen intelligent and Cata Jen. So when you're in the resting phase During that phase. That's the time that you want to make sure that you're speeding up that process when that new hair growth is starting to come back in and you also want to keep the hair that you have so you're definitely trading from a clinical approach. She knows that hair follicle and you're waking up and speeding up that rusting cycle where that new hair can come back and through so you're seeing results in your getting hair growth. You definitely want to eat using that. So somebody WHO's been bald for thirty years all the back And that her follicle is no longer producing hair. Are you going to get results from Minoxidil? Maybe not so that definitely you WANNA wake up that hair follicle and you WANNA speed up that process for that new hair to come back through. How do you feel about the the caps or the headbands with the red light therapy? Your what's your what's your take on those those are showing a lot of promise and those also There's lots of before and after she now that are online. So it's one of those things it's like you know what works for one person may not necessarily work for all if you know works for the majority and if it works for you definitely keep doing it. You have to be insisted on that you have to use it. You know. Every single day In addition to the other three sixteen approach that you're doing I personally noticed when I combined all three. Wow it was the trio of fact for

"botox" Discussed on The Baron of Botox
"I have honestly since I've been reporting the season and in doing these treatments and services and exploring all the stuff. I've gotten sick more often than I have in years I actually. I was hospitalized in the middle of production with influenza. Be which then. I got a rash at the same time. So they had to quarantine me because they thought they had the measles. I Shit you not and I got laryngitis during production. Which you can hear on the show. I've just been six six six six if I could just go about my day the way I want to you know if I want to if I could just like sit down and not think about this shit so much but I'm thinking thinking about body constantly. I don't WanNA think about my body this much. When I was working on the trailer for the series I came up with a catchy. Little tagline beauty. It's a beast. I didn't realize how accurate that really was back in episode one. I asked New York Times. Reporter Guide Her Bay a question. What do you think is the most interesting thing about the Fred Brand? I suppose the decrease the extent to which he emphasized is something that we don't know how to talk about all of these All this messed up stuff we feel about ourselves. And he he. He made himself that. Emblem I mean knowingly wittingly or not Dr. Brandt was just one man but the world saw in him a reflection of itself. It didn't like it was too vain to silly to strange to conflicted too controlling for something so easily dismissed beauty and our never ending quest to dominate. It is a mighty adversary. Maybe it's just human nature to hate something. We can't ever really own so we ridicule it. We call it names and yet there. It is smirking back at us in our selfish folder shining with casual indifference in framed pictures taken long ago and taunting us as we attempt at ten steps skin. Care Routine. Some influence promises will change your life like toxic lover we seek it out and then denounce it. Rinse Repeat Dr. Brandt may have been Dr Frankenstein. But we are all in our own ways his monsters. If you don't agree with me I have only one question left. Are you looking in the Mirror.

"It's been nearly five years since Dr. Brandt took his own life but his ghosts are everywhere. I often wonder if walking down Fifth Avenue which he liked to do in an oversized fo- for jacket while humming. The doctor Zhivago theme. No less would now feel like being in a fun house. He would spot versions of himself. Hailing cavs taking selfies and admiring their faces in the high end store windows and I see his invisible hand in the sculpted and plumped up faces. Onscreen and magazines and all around me. I was recently in the Locker Room at the gym. In New York when I spotted a woman who appeared to be wearing no makeup her eyelashes jet black and long extensions. The flash of her lips was pink and swollen paling out over the natural lines of her mouth. Her baseline her sweaty. No Makeup Post Jim face had been optimized and I had so many questions did I notice because this is the kind of thing I've been training myself to notice or do we all notice at least at first and then there is just adjust. Do humans have an innate ability to override the UNCANNY? And if we do what happens next do we all just move onto humans two point. Oh of the many people I heard. From during the course of making an airing this podcast. A plastic surgeon named Dr Carlos. Wolf was probably the most unexpected. He contacted me via linked in and I was primarily struck by the frankness of his message he wrote. I was the other doctor. Doing Bo talks in Miami at the time of Frederick Brand. I considered myself the Anti Fred. Look he goes on to say that he would ask his patients presumably to deter them from seeing the competition. You wouldn't go to a fat cardiologist would you? I googled him and found some pieces written for recurring column in the Miami Herald called plastic surgery one on one including one titled Too many frozen faces and distorted buttocks. We've got to curb the injections I had to talk to the anti-fraud I've been in Miami eight so it's been a very interesting ride. I think he and I had. He had the first and I might have had this second account with Allergen in Miami. So I've been doing it for a long time when we started doing both talks. My feeling was I like movement. His view was it was more aggressive. Approach I like people to look normal. Might might look natural. Dr Wolf says he first started to notice the disorienting effects of prolonged tinkering in his peer. And then sort of trickle down effect as doctors enamored with these procedures continued to grow their practices and their influence in the words of Ernest Hemingway. The slip toward the distorted happened. Two ways gradually then suddenly. I mean I've been cable with colleagues that I am not a dermatologist. But I've been at a at a table where I'm with colleagues I ask. Where are they in their sitting across the table? Exhibit so bizarre. You know it's it's crazy could recognize. It has so much film that they just look like. Avid cars like People to turn out. It's almost like a new version of what a human should look like what happens. Is you start getting injected and you know in your brain more seems better so the more you get better. You think you look and so. I often tell people that they really should take a picture of themselves before they start on this journey because they don't recognize sometimes that what they're doing is really distorting. I think now we have sort of a distortion of duty is but the one funny thing that happens all the time at least in my practice. Because I've been doing this. Now is my thirty first year Miami and I still get allowed to come in and they wanNA have some filler. But I don't WanNa look like all those people or or some friends because and I said well. Do you ever tell your friends ad and go. I would never do that. I tell people they should. I mean if you're really good friends with somebody you should actively say you're doing too much you don't look you don't look like you should look cleared from imperative entertainment. I'm Justin Harman. And this is the Baron of Botox episode ten New Normal L. Let me get my ear buds. Then because that might be better and let me just also go in a emily. Doherty is a long time beauty expert and the former editor in chief of new beauty a quarterly publication that focuses on women in their thirties. Forties fifties a demographic more likely to consider surgery in injectables than millennials. Jen's ears emily. I started seeing Dr Brandt around two thousand and four declare. Peru's Asia and sun damage leftover from childhood of skiing as the years went on. He began to administer a little injection. Here a little injection there it with two thousand around two thousand eleven to twelve. Were trying to look back at Polaroid's Anita figure out like when did he hit peak anti-aging for me. I looked younger when I first started seeing him in two thousand four. Emily and I also worked together at L. I have this vivid memory of the two of us being alone in the office. After Hurricane Sandy hit such a defining moment in so many New Yorkers lives and feeling so drawn to retender energy. I wanted to talk to emily for a lot of reasons including these lipstick smashing videos for which she has accumulated nearly one hundred thousand instagram followers. If you have no idea what I'm talking about I don't blame you. Emily makes these mesmerizing shorts where she blends to lipstick. Bullets the part of the lipstick. That's actually make up using a tiny little spatula later glossy publications like vogue. India would call them. Asmar beauty videos. Those Internet loved clips that some people say make them feel tinguely but I think she started because she loves how the beautiful colors blend. Beauty Editors can be weird like that and I got so much hate because people are like. You're wasting lipsticks. I got it was almost like people would put their comments through Google. Translate on Sunday to me because I got things like U. S. ING mother. After I you know like I defecate on the four banners that light the graves of your ancestors tunes and I was like Whoa. You know I got. I got like joking death threats. I'm GONNA come to you for what you've done to these lipsticks. Meanwhile you had all these like hype house tight guys like ruining iphones and nobody is like role. Why are you wasting iphones? I wasn't actually even ruining the lipsticks. I was just transferring them from the bullet into a pot and recording the process and meanwhile there were people actually wasting and destroying things running these over with trucks and not getting death threats the way that I was getting death threats again. These were lipstick videos but these topics vanity beauty aging consumerism. They inspire rage. I've covered the beauty wellness aesthetic. Beat since nineteen ninety five. I I was lucky to get into it in the early days. Very much inspired. By the what Linda Wells had created a lower I think before I came out there. Wasn't anybody really looking at beauty through the lens of what does this mean to us. What is beauty means sociologically. And you know I when you look at how humans evolved. We were make up before we were closed. They're still this lizard brain thing that kicks in that causes women to Judge Women Menu. Judge Women just the overall judgy this and when it comes to the aesthetic beauty space. You're layering in That these procedures are often not you know they're they're not cheap so they're expensive for me. It was a really interesting experience in what I called the social part of the social media that the rage came from a very valid point. People were angry about something in their lives and didn't feel like they had any place to you. Know that felt unheard. Nobody listening nobody. They can't change anything but look at this idiot. Who's WHO's wasting her. Dad's money on lipstick as an editor. Emily didn't shy away from the emotions. Both negative and positive behind the impulse to change the way we look in fact one of the things she did at new beauty was create a section dedicated to surgery. Before's after's where else would women get to see? Gallery of dozens of natural breasts or thighs dotted with cellulite or stretch marks. They wanted to show women more of the fours because new liver alive only fee. After's the big screen and think perfection all the time and we don't really know many many women don't really know what other women's wrestling like I would. I heard from readers of weight. I looked at all of these breasts. I felt like my breasts actually pretty good so I don't actually think I need an augmentation right now but just again putting the information out there without saying you need to be fixed. It's very easy when you're talking duty to you. Second Person You can do this to get rid of that or this is how you can do this or this. Is the fastest way to fix that. But when you have that concert second person of like this is how you fix yourself subconsciously. Readers starts feeling very much like she's broken and that there's just everything needs fixing and beauty becomes almost like a job like doing the so now. We're here a distinct moment in time where we suddenly have the ability to wake up and decide today. I'm going to change my face and then go about our lives as if nothing happened. So Long break-up Bangs we've now entered the era of break-up Botox rejection wrestle in and PMS.

I don't even know how to describe it like cutting edge. Chic fancy whatever you WANNA say. Instead to be able to join us. Practice was massive honor. It was pretty cool though. He was thirty years younger than his boss. Dr Green says Dr Brent always treated him as a peer. It gave me all sorts of credibility. I didn't deserve because we'd walk around.

Hard tried he he treated you like an equal which to me is really sort of not around The rest of our field so coming to work was hilarious. I mean he would always tease each other and joke around and Patients would say you're so lucky you talk to Brian. How how did you get this job and say oh Dr Greenies the babysitting me when I was a little boy? That's how I knew him. You know that was his sense of humor. You'd walk through the halls and you'd be like Dr Green. I'm thinking of doing both talks today nervous. I don't want to change the way I look but I think I wanna try it. Yeah so he'd laugh or he'd walk through the halls going public so butch today and he kind of found a little bit so our interplay was very joking very fun. You know borderline inappropriate. I don't know how would have gone over in this era of a lot more political correctness. Fast forward a decade but You know I don't even know if this is appropriate to say but he would always joke about you know how Monteverdi was. And how kind of not Macho. I wanted to which was funny. I mean pictures of me. Kind of fake kissing him under a mistletoe. You know we would always joke around like that. Dr Green sent me the pictures which were taken around Christmas in two thousand fourteen in them.

Dr Green who's a couple inches shorter than his five foot. Nine boss is sporting a white lab coat over a plaid shirt and grey jeans with a tiny top hat. Headband and a large sack of presence slung over one shoulder. They're standing in a treatment room under some shoddily drawn mistletoe with their arms around each other their lips puckered as if to kiss in the next picture. Dr Brandt is doubled over with laughter. He also sent me to other pictures.

"Like big medical. The beauty business has its own insider rewards program a two thousand sixteen study in Jama Dermatology a monthly peer reviewed journal found that dermatologists received more than thirty four million dollars from industry affiliates in two thousand fourteen and that most of this money came from pharmaceutical companies in the top. Ten percent of dermatologists received ninety percent of the total payments. When I searched the names of some of Fred's closest colleagues and peers. I find in the past few years annual receipts for anywhere between four thousand six hundred dollars to one hundred and thirty two thousand dollars for such things as comped meals travel and unspecified consulting fees.

I think he had a realistic and sort of healthy view of the relationship between industry add physicians and I think he understood when friendships were genuine and when they weren't because we used gossip about a lot of people and I think he had very clear bearings on who was a friend and who is a professional colleague or someone who wanted something from from imperative.

That included demonstrations and workshops a course on Botox basics and a scientific symposium called Tips for Lips. This was not unusual for Dr Brandt. One year he appeared as a speaker at sixteen different dermatological conventions. Dr Tina Ulster. The Laser Queen of DC appeared on two panels. Dr Brandt at the meeting. A live demonstration on injecting techniques and a symposium on methods to make treatments more comfortable for patients. She says these conventions are pretty high stakes over the last twenty years. The cosmetic portion of dermatology has grown tremendously and the biggest rules in terms of lecture halls. Where the lectures are delivered are all cosmetic dermatology. So we have a lot of workshops where they're live demonstrations of doing injections doing laser treatments but depends on which workshops. You're in and literally. There are a of two thousand people in a single hall who not only looking at these live injections but they're seeing them on big screens as they're being done so it's a well run very intense time for both the lecturers while it's the people who are in attendance and Fred. Seminars were a fan favourite. Not only for a scientific insights but for his sense of humor and reverence for the work colleagues always thought him God and Quirky but recognize that he was really visionary in Aesthetic Dermatology. I think understood that that while an unusual guy is contributions to the field. Were extraordinarily. That's Jonas Shack Ni- again. Jona made an absolute fortune in two thousand twelve when he sold medicines to valiant pharmaceuticals the same company. That spent a whopping sixteen bucks on Fred in two thousand fourteen for two point. Six billion dollars. Joanna is a keen observer who gained insights into the beauty industry by analyzing in part how women behaved at department stores. He told W magazine in two thousand eight. I used to watch the way they would look in the mirror. Their habits were fascinating to me the way they interacted with and trusted the consultants of all the people. I've talked about Fred. Jonas seems to have the greatest insights into the myriad ways. His friend was an outsider in both his field and the world at large. Fred didn't fit in to the capitalist. Turn of the beauty industry. He wasn't very good at being a celebrity or it weathering the criticism of intrigued but sceptical public and he wasn't particularly well versed on the nuances of the social contract. But he tried. There was definitely a playful side to. He sang a lot just sort of spontaneously not necessarily established songs but once that he would make up. I recall many many walks with him in Miami where we would go into a restaurant with his dogs and people complain about. The dogs are not be happy that they're wondering around the restaurant and he would just sort of go up to the people can offer them a free treatment in office starts singing in his moments he was a very light good natured guy that. I think I just wanted a little attention to try to make people happy and I think he tried. Very hard to project himself sometimes awkwardly to be a little more gregarious and extroverted but fundamentally he was a guy that just wanted to sit around with a few close friends and his dogs and could be very happy watching movies. He was not a guy that likes to go out and meet new people but I think he understood professionally the importance of that and get his best. It was a learned behavior or performance think. His presentation was often as needed to try to attract attention. Engage people even though he fundamentally was uncomfortable doing it. The last time Jonas Dr Brandt was at the American Academy of Dermatology Meeting in March. They had lunch together and he could see that his friend was preoccupied. He wasn't the only one who felt like something was off brands. Colleague Dr Julie. Kaufman also noticed that he was uncharacteristically. Low Energy so we were at the ad together The American Academy Dermatology and little quiet and I noticed. He was quiet but he'd been traveling. It's exciting he's tired inside was in a good. Everybody around him was happy when things started getting a little bit. More on the downside. You also felt that from him but he wasn't just hired in addition to the Netflix show. There had been other more clandestine. Setbacks and a-list client was reportedly irate when she developed a hard Najah will in her face after Brent injected her with the filler. Luma one source told me that Fred was quote paralyzed with fear that he would lose her as a patient. According to friends in the last months of his life he became obsessed with having the filler taken off the market to people familiar with an incident that took place at the American Academy of Dermatology Convention. Told Me Brandt was confronted by an employee for the manufacturer Allergan. According to one eyewitness quote someone from the company. A relatively junior person was just berating him asking him about his hygiene technique in office things. That would be fantastically insulting to any physician. Allergan did not respond to multiple requests for comment but a study published four months. After Brandt died discovered that delayed onset nozzles developed in less than one percent of Luma patients. Jonas still remembers how the drama weighed on his friend. Fred was always unholy on the side of his patients so how they looked and their level of satisfaction or delight with the things that happened in his office. Were really the paramount things affecting his self validation when he had happy patients especially the celebrities. That would talk about. Nothing would make him happier so at one level he uncorruptible because if a product was not right for his patients he wouldn't use it. Great example is that he observed some side effects in his practice with certain products. Even though those manufacturers doing a lot of clinical studies are paying him Honoraria to give talks. He was not at all reserve. In sort of bringing these issues to the forefront my observation over I think we had launched and spending some time with Malone was that he was very concerned with his standing in the community he a dubbing concerned about a couple of issues and he felt under siege from several of his colleagues and a couple of companies and he really felt that his years of treatment in the category really. His vision were being undermined because he was trying to do the right thing for his patients in identifying issues. So I'd say that he was on the depressed side but again. I use the word for cautiously because it was around one issue last than two weeks after the meeting. Fred. Brandt was dead. When you're trying to piece together the last few months or weeks of someone's life it can begin to feel like an abstract painting. The things people remember can take on new meaning in hindsight details. Become storylines doctor also remembers arriving at the Dermatology meeting in San Francisco and running into her friend. Fred Brent in the lobby I arrived at the hour and he happened to be at the same hotel and he was down in the reception area so when I came through the door you know. He's there large Avello. Tina Tina and I say oh. Fred how are you and he was wearing this great wetter. Black my favorite color with a big sign on it and Rhinestone and said Oh. I love that whether he goes. Oh take it coming in. They'll don't even talk me about it. And of course. We saw each other for the next few days during the meeting. And then Lo and behold a week after the meeting after I came back to Washington he had me a perfectly dry clay sweater literally off his back and so it was one of those things that I thought in the mail around the time that things went south for him so he was. I feel like he was thinking about me At the end of the day it was a parting gift. He literally would have given that shirt off his back if I let him but it was. It wasn't the right timing but when I did get it was. It was quite a shock this season on the dream. We're looking into a world that is perhaps even murkier muddier some might say beer than multilevel marketing the world of wellness.

Who's open about the work? She's had done. I got my boobs done when I was eighteen. I saved up every single penny working at a t and paid for it like right after graduation and I never thought it was a big deal and I think maybe that has to do with my childhood groping a very non judgmental environment and I kind of always thought everyone was like that and then I realized that they weren't that we're growing up in a society that can be very judgmental and I think I can breathe a vibe of being unapologetically yourself in a non judgmental way than I wanna be a crusader for that since founding the skinny confidential in two thousand eleven upon on getting the four one one or the skinny evert's Bostick has witnessed firsthand the way social media has changed the way we see ourselves.

You've almost been trained on. How just constantly looking at ourselves? But regardless of the constant self-scrutiny and our tendency to over inflate our own good looks Dr Aikoff says none of us has any idea what we look like to other people as much as we try to control our image people basically see what they wanna see.

All kinds of impressions of personality are eight or beauty. How competently are trustworthy? And I've done face experiments for decades and you find this people make instant judgements. We are not able to do that. We don't see ourselves as others do so. The most informative part of our physical presence is when we have to see distorted through a mirror and at times.

"Newsflash if you're not walking around with your iphone in front of you like a God damn metal detector. You're at least forty. Sometimes I get tripped up. Of course there's a woman a regular at the French bistro on my corner who remains a giant question. Mark is she thirty or fifty. Her skin is luminous and clear. Shaath wears wildlife corduroys and doubly sweaters. Her son bleached blond hair is always swept up in a little bond with curlicue sticking out at her temple on the occasion of her recent birthday again. Thirty fifty. She treated friends to a bottle of champagne which she giddily poured into their flutes clapping as the bubbles overflowed regardless of her age. Her beauty knocks me out. I must psychologist at Harvard. Medical School and at the university have much of my career studying how we perceive faces beauty and aesthetics in the environment. This is Nancy at cough. She literally wrote the book on the signs of beauty in nineteen ninety nine. It's called survival of the prettiest. Her Two thousand four Ted talk on the pursuit of happiness has been watched over two million times. Dr Cough has a knack for taking thorny biological and historical information and making it approachable sexy even from very early times. We've always tried to alter our appearance in ways that we assume might make us more appealing more attractive more powerful he go back to tribal societies. That was much more about the social context but again a lot of attention to grooming adornment paid on the body and its continued. Now if you look into the renaissance royalty with put on sick gobs of white pieced on your face to try to cover up perhaps some blemishes or to look better to others. Dr Cough says beauty isn't just one thing that whole theory about a golden ratio. Something Bella Hadid supposedly has. She's not buying it. I think you can look at beauty in a number of ways one can be. There's the evolutionary explanation. Now let's say the Bay of but people have found beautiful. There is the cultural and social context. What your friends like. What your friends aware but currently happening in your culture unearth another part of beauty which is a little less is ICAL and harder to put into words. But it's about the capacity to move other people. I would say there can be something really moving about a person that capture cise and makes us want to linger longer. Look for their and we can't quite put our finger on but that is I think empathy is part of that or resonance with yourself and your own background or it can just be something about that person's force of personality or presence. Some people have enormous presents the way they carry themselves away move the way they talk inc so I think it can go beyond physical and people can talk about I think for the most part is just people like how certain people look and others But I do think there are some of these less tangible qualities to people can make a distinction between what looks beautiful and perhaps what feels beautiful to the ask a person. Are you beautiful? Most people would say you know they just they might say they're really brilliant really talented but no. I'm not Very few people will really describe themselves that way if you ask people. A winnebago felt beautiful. Everyone can do that all. I felt it in this circumstance wearing this name or with that person or Sylvia's sort of transient feeling a people get doctor at Tov says that the advent of Plastic Surgery and cosmetic interventions has served to expedite and warp the evolution of aesthetics. But it's not all doom and gloom for the most part people think fundamentally more attractive than they actually are when we do studies and look at people them a portrait of themselves and we allow them to manipulate it in the following way. We take pictures down and try to beautify in some way to make of course electrical or whatever may be putting together with someone else's face and then we see which face people as them people will often choose the slightly more attractive face as themselves. We all have somewhat positive biased outweigh with yourselves. Potentially in our imagination in our best possible though it does look like us in at some level. We always say everyone doesn't like the way they look but it's actually not true subtle. Facial work could probably do the same thing. Which is here's how you ideally Yoursel tweak a little here a little there and this is you on a good day feeling good about yourself so I think if it settle than often you'll get used to it and see it as you but other people know you will might have seen that kaleidoscope of faces that all the expressions and say well you know and this is how I years Neuron perception. Someone else's are unlikely to be exactly the same. She says that social media has lurched US toward a new beauty ideal something the New Yorker described as a rootless exoticism in two thousand nine hundred essay called the age of Instagram face. It reads the faces distinctly white but ambiguously ethnic it suggests a national geographic composite illustrating what Americans will look like in two thousand and fifty if every American or the future were to be a direct descendant of Kim Kardashian. West Bella Hadid Emily Radic Hausky. And Kendall Jenner Dr. Brandt was undeniably beholden to the ideals and the limitations of his own generation. He grew up. During the golden age of Hollywood when studios had a stronghold over there stars and plastic surgery made its bombshells appear more blue blooded. His most famous faces shared the unmistakable contours of beauties like Bette Davis Judy Garland and Rita Hayworth who reportedly had her hairline raised to obscure her Latino roots. The America we live in now maybe changing at a rapid clip. But it seems our idea of what's beautiful remained stuck in meteorologist. One theory of beauty is that we take all people that we've seen be meld them into some kind of average and that's part of what went find beautiful naturally changes it changes if we only look at a small slice of people so for a long time at the United States was growing much blonde tall wise. That was it and that. That's what people aspire to. I think now we live in a more cultural society. One that wants to look like Imelda cultures or contemporary.

We then sit down and Dr Custodian's office the same one where Cindy Crawford joked about her famous beauty mark. Dr Kenosha is intense but in a warm and interested way his eyes are always darting around and taking in information.

Who aren't people not even physicians? Not even in the medical field at all they may not be nurses they may not be anything and yet. They're saying that if they can do any of these treatments whether it's with injectable with lasers or any other devices but early on all of us who have been doing this. The longest has been. I've seen complications. If other people think that all you have to do is pick up. The laser hands intrigue somebody people just thought. Oh we have this needle. Stick it anywhere in the body that you see Chris or scar and that would be fine so I think have been doing for longest ball the complications that the rolling through everybody's doors eventually and and I think as being among the first people who were using these things he he probably thought as well mentioned the fact that those even who have been doing for long as we still have patients who come in with unrealistic expectations and they are dissatified that Oh just one treatment isn't Gonna fix everything. We all have patients who have the unrealistic expectations. And think that you may do not have done the job that they wanted you to do because they were listening to you to begin with so I know that not only was probably treating patients who had not been treated well all by others but also some of his own patients who express dissatisfaction even if it was unrealistic on their part. Dr Alster says you have to learn how not to absorb. Patients patients distress that. It's an acquired skill. She also says that. DC was slower to accept injections. As casual. I would say in Washington. It's only van in the last decade. I say that before. Then a lot of my patients certainly had transitioned to it. But it wasn't really a household name at least here in Washington until the last decade and now people automatically will come and say they want blackhawks even if it's not both talk they specifically want or need they just kind of tall injectables in that Votaw category. Her patients include some of the most powerful politicians in Washington. Women who are simultaneously told. That's smart women shouldn't care about vanity but then a roasted by the press for their pantsuits their haircuts or looking their age. Dr Alster says at least once a week. She finds herself bearing the brunt of what she calls inherited. Anger displaced frustration from a patient who got a treatment and ended up with the frozen this or or a drooping that. It's ironic really because the lower stakes of cosmetic medicine and the fact that there are hardly any true emergencies is why she picked dermatology over career in cardiothoracic surgery in the first place. I think that's part of being in the cosmetic industry as a whole people are very concerned. Learn about how they look and and rightly so spending money to make themselves look and therefore feel better and when their expectations aren't Mesh there's a certain the amount of not only disappointment but downright anger particularly if there's a side effect or complication which they were not prepared. They don't have a chance to relate. Let Their anger out on that one because no longer seeing that doctor anymore and they take it out on you because you're the one left holding the bag. I think that's one of the most difficult things I mean. Most of us who go into medicine because we want to help other people. When you're doing your best to make somebody better whether it's cosmetically medically and they lash out at you for any any number of things you can't help take personally? I know I've been doing this as I said for over thirty years and every week there may be somebody who kind of throws me off. I'm still sensitive myself I have better ways to deal with it. I may not break out and start crying. It disrupts my sleep the way that it used to but it still bothers me and certainly hey. Fred was a very sensitive person and I think that it was difficult for him to deal with difficult personalities. 'cause he was sensitive and I'm sure that if there were things that were the attention. Somebody's taking something out. Have you wouldn't take that very very personally. Barbara McDonald here hosted the brand new podcast from h down the hill. The Delphi murders. This is the story of teens. Abby Williams and Libby German in February two thousand seventeen they went for a hike in Delphi. Indiana and vanished. Nearly twenty four hours later their bodies are found also found Libya's phone which has video and audio of the killer who remains on the loose. You can listen now on apple podcasts. As much as Fred brand may have wanted to return to the early days of Botox when it was still dark art and each face was a canvas to be perfected. A new era of beauty had dawned and this era worshipped. Many gods. This era wasn't afraid to kill it. starlings I think Brent was certainly the start of. We'll turn it live to surgery that other people put up with and I think that way he was really creative source that act there was a need for less radical ways of rejuvenation. Whether or not he went awry is another question. That's Daphne Merkin again. The essayist an author who met Dr Brandt while writing about him for the New York Times she saw the way the work work and his relentless experimentation on himself had taken its toll. The cracks were beginning to show. I remember he came to a party that a friend gave me. Listen a book it was about some cover article. I think about depression. He came and that was about how ten years ago. In this see-through undoubtedly poor raincoats native final but strange I haven't seen him for a while and I almost didn't recognize him but says a lot about what he did to himself and I remember once the other side of him or maybe it's the same side. I went with him to some years awards and he didn't get a an award that year. The Ashley cried on the phone to me Eh. Sitting next to me he cried. I felt so sad. He was at that point at the pinnacle of his profession. He must have been mentioned to lure for every other second. Guess I thought there was always a slight danger to certainly thought as as the years pass us and I didn't go to him later on. I think women who asked for that. He acceded to the request. Whether or not it it was beneficial or behooves them have so much filler. I think eventually his notion of filling the face and raising thing. It became a little bit to me at least from what I saw. Without enough assessment of the result I don't know Ivy VI and he almost merged with these women.

Beautiful blowouts but I think a little bit older than what I had expected did. And what I had controlled which it was just kind of an older crowd and there were details. People were wearing cool outfits but they just didn't have recognizable faces. I remember we were shooting a woman. She's man this black dresses.

"Will you let together very often of course together together and he was always fun to be with. We went out to dinner with him in this city. Just the three of US my husband bread and I many times and and when we were with him he was just work late the latest tonight and then just go home. We got to travel together and be on that advisory board together gather and to lecture about the product together and it was a very interesting time and then of course. We did many many studies after that on every product. That's out now now. And so we got to see each other all these advisory Boards investigative meetings and things of that sort was very serious when he was lecturing or talking talking about studies. Who wrote those things that Dr Nerin's runs practices in both Manhattan and White Plains New York on her website? She boasts that she was the first doctor in the Westchester area to administer kyw Bella the first and only injectable treatment to banish double Chins. She remembers almost being two distinct Fred's serious Since obsessed goes home at eight Fred and then there was this other guy celebrity catnip Fred. 'cause he came on the scene somewhat after I did and he patients love and so and they were very loyal to him and they validated him. Any especially the stores. He treated validated his life. And in a way that's always dangerous and actually sometimes celebrities of the hardest hardest people to tree and the most fun is with regular people that are non celebrity but in any case these people they were damaged that this and favors listen very very lonely. It was exactly the same on Klein. Do you know what I'm talking about. No arnie Klein was much more famous. Client yes Arnold Klein King of Collagen. He named himself that I've done. This is a lot about PR and then the big problem is you start to believe the PR from imperative entertainment. I'm Justin Harman. And this is the baron of Botox episode five fame game In every industry there is a hierarchy and the beauty and fashion industry is no exception. I remember back in the beginning of my career running into a girl with whom I interned at in style magazine we were at a rooftop party. Drinking Vodka Sodas. She and I didn't know each other well but we didn't know anyone else at the party either. So we became best friends for the night. We were commiserating about our junior status in our respective corners of the industry. I was an assistant at public relations. Firm that represented actors. She was an editorial assistant at fashion publication. When she said something I never forgot? She told me you should magazine because when you do everyone comes to you now. This wasn't exactly the heyday of publishing that Valhalla of black cars and expense accounts and clothing allowances but it was over ten years ago. When magazine still brought in a pretty penny I was only twenty-three just barely out of college but I knew she was right? That my position which mostly consisted of creating schedules clients and functioning as behind the scenes nanny the and purse holder at movie. Premieres wasn't at the top of the food chain. In my limited exposure to the celebrity complex industry I had ascertained that the pecking order went. Something like this Celebrity Harvey Weinstein Agent Magazine Editor Manager Publicist as in their actual publicist hair. stylists makeup artists clothing stylists then comes personal assistant masseuse dog Walker acupuncturist dermatologists drug dealers shoe connect. And then me now. You don't need to understand the mechanics canucks of every level of the operation to know that being a magazine editor someone. A celebrity does not pay or get paid by is something of a seniority loophole. I I immediately made it my business to be the type of person. People came to for things and not the other way around throughout the course of ten years as a junior senior and then senior level editor at a variety of magazines. This loophole remained a constant. When you're in a position to give people a platform the distance between you and celebrities becomes much smaller? I have been in ridiculous situations as a result of having my name on a magazine Masthead. I've flown on private jets. Smoked smoked weed with an editorial rowdy supermodel and had dinner with the cast of characters so preposterous. I had to ask myself. Is this even real one in time. An hathaway sent my niece very tasteful bouquet of flowers for her thirteenth birthday but regardless of the title bestowed to him by the press. The Baron in of Botox Dr Brandt was in a precarious position. As a service provider to the stars he had all the GLITZ and glamour. That comes with being close to celebrities but none of the power. That's just not how the hierarchy works when your job is to make a famous person look and feel more beautiful. There are only two rules now rule one. Keep the client happy anytime. I did anyone hair no matter where it was when they got up up and they felt good. That's all matter. I don't care if they tell anybody. I honestly found that a lot of times when I was doing the most famous people. They didn't even want want anybody to know that it was me that did their hair because they wanted my attention rather than me giving it to someone else. This is Bryant Renfro. He's an old friend of Dr Brands. Who before making a career? One eighty and becoming a real estate agent out in the Hamptons spent thirty five years as Barbara. Walters personal hairstylist. I get Barbara's Barbara's hair even after she left. TV's two three four times a week. 'cause I was not only her cheesy. TV Hairdresser. I was her personal hairdresser. I cut her hair where I colored her hair. I did everything for thirty five years. Rule Two of Celebrity Service Provider Fight Club. Don't fuck up. The biggest thing about it is is no matter who you are what you do and I know this from being a hairdresser for so many years and climbing to the top of my Game this doesn't make any difference WHO's hair I ever did makes no difference at all. The person that I'm working with isn't happy then. It's not a good situation relation and other brand made everyone happy. He was always certain that they were happy before they left. There was always a guarantee. Okay that went with him. When your job is to make famous people look and feel beautiful? The stakes may be exceedingly high. But your position in the food chain test is it. You never bring yourself to the table. There's a way of talking around it because they're not really asking about you. Basically you're almost a psychiatrist and your doctor and your hairdresser and when you start believing that you're equal to your Client Ryan or patient than you've lost. We're in a service business. That's the hairstylist. Garin again he and Dr Brandt met in the early nineties and we're really close. They connected not only in the way they appraised beauty. I think that's why our connection was so tight because we don't see the the positive we see the negative but it's interesting. I learned that I by working with polly melon and Vogue and Glamour Glamor and all those magazines at the time way back beginning my career talking nearly seventy where when you look through the Lens of of say. Mr Penn Irving Tanner Avidan. You knew the girl was beautiful but you would look and say oh the collars wrong or. Oh the hair's too much or the makeup is wrong but our I went in that direction. And that's how I analyze. My clients are talked to models models or whatever. I'm always looking like. Yes you're beautiful. Yes that's working but we could make a better Garin. Dr Brandt connected in the way that they almost created these heightened versions of themselves for their clients to enjoy characters who reflected back the best of whoever was seated in their chairs but never brought their own baggage to the table. I came from a small town. He came from a small town. You become the best in your field or part one of the best in your airfield and then you start creating an image and you want to keep people you weren't brought up that way but you have this or about you. He was self self taught he was brilliant. My family was very modest but I knew that if I was going to make it in New York City I had to have something special. Their specialty was that I became severe so that I could. I had no hair so a shaved it and I wore very severe closed. Meaning I was was always in black and white or or black. I was never casual and I chose that route because I would come manned or demand and more attention by my client because they wouldn't be able to direct me. I could suggest something to them and they would take it like. I wasn't rude but it would be like if I said you should definitely have your haircut here. There was authorities behind. You had to become authoritive and Fred was very authoritative. But he took it in a different direction because he loved Colori love fashion and he always was be like all his clients would buy him this crazy gifts. I mean I mean like these great handbags big bags. You know the Louis Vuitton bag. The air mess bag this bag that and they would buy him beautiful amazing being things he would carry it around like it was just like it didn't matter don't oh it's just piece.

"Other doctor analytic though handsome. Has that whole rumpled dad vibe going for and we did spend a lot of time together. Fred would joke that he was my work wife. I Yeah I remember I would get so used to being around him that I would forget that people would do a double take a look and see. WHO's this guy who I'm with because kind of didn't look like we matched necessarily necessarily we would do the end of the day what he called the green light walk because we didn't live far from each other on the west side of midtown or towards Chelsea? We would walk home and I think it was whether he kinda blow off steam from the day and just wouldn't stop a walk. Blue would walk in at every intersection. Whichever way the green was pointing we'd walk in that direction as we were heading towards where we were trying to go but we have a lot walks together and a lot of time together? He injected his face. Whereas you to my naked I appears that you have not drank that particular? kool-aid Hulu have you ever been tempted or have you ever gotten any Bo talks or anything like that. I've had procedures stuff but I think that I do more laser. Everyone has an aesthetic and how they want to to be and how they want to present themselves. He approached his face differently. Used to be his office right now. We're sitting in his office and the office were. We just treated you or the patient room was a room where he would be running out of routinely to treat his patients. I joked with you earlier that he would say that he's in show business. Santa what else he did. He was a performer. He would say he would dance. He'd be laughing and part of the treatments not just that he was so good at what he did but people had so much fun and he was performing to make that happen. It was an important part of its and you want people to feel positive and have a good time and I heard him say that about the staff and the doctors and everybody but he would come down off for that high and we would just relax and he would be. I don't want to say more normal but his energy level would come back to a baseline where you can talk over things day to day things cadore things and personal interesting and things like that. At the end of the day we would sit and just talk back then. Dr Branch Office was notorious for wait time so long that some patients would call in advance just to see how behind he was running. The lobby was teaming full of women. Some famous some rich many both hanging around sometimes sometimes for hours at a time to see him. He would never part of the reason that it happened is that he would spend so much time with a patient and individual patient. Somebody needed anything. Saying he wouldn't rush the procedure also half the time. It was sometimes a therapy session and people are being a personal issues. And he wouldn't rush that either he would talk about that. Somebody has something going on in their lives. Talk about it. And he wouldn't rush out of the room so everyone got their time with him and if you were later in the day am I mean. They were fairly backed up. The first appointment was very popular appointment. Yeah but at the end of the day. Fifteen minutes with Dr Brandt or Dr analytic cost thousands of dollars and I only got Bo. Talks with fillers lasers one appointment with Dr Brandt could easily run upwards of seven thousand dollars therapists like really early. Good therapists cost a fraction of that. And don't get me wrong. This stuff works but it doesn't work the way you might think. I was so excited about my new face that a week after seeing analytic as sent a Selfie to my best friend Lizzie. Do I look different. I asked she wrote back immediately. No it's not lizzy would be right exactly but that the changes so subtle and so in tune with my own assessment of my face that there's no way she or anyone else could really see it the way I do because as someone once told me women see are faces as a collection of parts when Lizzie is is that Selfie. She sees me her perfect friend doing her weird mirror face when I see that Selfie I see my good angle the one where my I more. Prominent cheekbone is showing and my better eyebrow is on display and a version of my face that makes me feel comfortable in that Selfie. I see both a promising promising future. And a gentle softening of the past. My body perhaps forever changed from having to kids isn't pictured my home the clutter and forgotten toys is pictured. My Skin looks radiant. And Dewey and my nose or fuck it. My nose looks cuter. I knew that I was going to be on a reality television. Show and I just heard about the tastic and extraordinary Fred brand and I felt like if I was going to be on TV. I really you know had to go to the best of the best. You may recognize this voice. As one of the most divisive cast members on the real housewives of New York City Aviva Drescher was the lifelong a New Yorker and ex wife of notorious playboy. Harry Dubin she also memorably banged her prosthetic leg on a table during the season. Six finale let me tell you something. The only thing keeping together speak only think that artificial or faith about me and right before she decided to wade into the Bravo Gauntlet lint where all people do is insult you for sport. That's what they do. It's like being a gladiator with tits and reality television. Did you say gladiator with tits. Yeah she she decided to get a face tune from Dr Brandt. What was it that you were hoping to achieve by seeing Fred? Look my best to be the prettiest that I could be. Do you remember your first this consultation with him and what he seems like and what you guys talked about I just remember going. I remember always waiting for hours. I waited a long time. I remember bracing myself for the price because I had heard. He's very expensive. I just remember him. Being extremely extremely intensely gentle very intense like an artist he really wasn't looking to sell products or is it really looked at me as though I was a work of art and he was going to improve me and it was something that I felt from his soul. He was very gentle gentle gentle man. After I went to Dr Brandt and I had been to several other doctors my husband looked at me and was like wow. This really is incredible. What about like you really look good? Instead of the intersection between art and commerce. Dr Brandt lived at the even more nebulous intersection between heart and commerce and two women hoping to evade the ticking clock of time or just to feel like gladiators with tints it made him invaluable mm-hmm despite his willingness to share his methods with his associates there were elements of Dr Brown's practise. That simply couldn't be taught Dr Analytic. It's not that he's okay with that. There's definitely an empathy when I think about Fred though was on top of the science and a little bit of the eccentric behavior and it was a combination action of nerd and cool. He was an unusual combination. And I think that that combination worked in a way where people were thrilled to be around. He was the guy who knew all the signs he knew Kanada me. He knew how to approach it but he was also wildly fawn and actually so cool in that setting and so I think that when the celebrities who come in and out they clicked with him because because he was fun and he could. There wasn't empathy but he also just understood the world around them and he could talk about it and an extended the things that you know so many celebrities do enjoy for talking about celebrities the fashion and the entertainment. I look back on old pictures on instagram of me and him. And this is one on his. Where he's wearing airing? This Yves Saint Laurent long coat with some sort of metal chains in the back. What are you awake? Oh what's wrong with me just nerd but there was a coolness to it that might have seen very foreign. People didn't know him but once I got to know him they would see it and I think people really connected to him. So is that something you can learn. I know I think that if somebody can connect with people they can be in that role. There is a mutual validation. When you're with a celebrity and celebrity see you but that just continued to build for him as they want us to spend time with him and so he became one of the first celebrity dermatologist? Dr Analytic agrees that the exchange of energy the one between ego go and empathy can create a deficit. I think you're right this so many examples. Hard to think of them all but just how he cared for by joke. That about nine to five was ninety eight but at eight. Apm I remember one day. Say All right we were DR A in Dr B. It's all right Dr Ray get your coat. We're going to the hospital. We visiting a patient of ours who just had knee replacement surgery. This is late at night. What cosmetic dermatologist? You know is going to the hospital to basically do rounds not really just to see the patient. Make sure that they're OK. Hey all his otherness. And that's otherness to. I don't know another cosmetic dermatologist. Who would do that? It was a very positive things everyone around him but yes he was different. Do you think he had any of that. Love for himself. Who knows in the end? How viewed himself right? How could he do this to himself I hope he did especially before the state of depression? The depression hits.

"Back in August I went to meet with Dr Brands. Protege Dr Robert Analytic for the second time the doctor. Dr Analytic is much younger than Dr Brandt. He was the one who joked at the memorial. That Dr Brandt was sixty five year old with the thirty-seven-year-old body while he was a thirty seven year old with the body of a sixty five year old. The two were professionally inseparable. The last five years of Dr Brands Life our first visit was something of a get to know you. This second one was was a bit more experimental. I asked Dr Analytic if he'd be willing to recreate the experience of getting talks with Dr Brandt to emulate as best as he can the way his mentor would appraise patients face and casually jovially inject it with a cocktail of products intended to restore a face to what he called harmony Germany. The whole thing has a kind of you have to see it to believe it lower and since I can't really see it I imagine this is the next best thing I also really WANNA capture. Sure sound nearly. Anyone who has gotten botox is heard a lo- crunching noise as the liquid tries to find its way under the skin and onto the muscle. I've talks about five times in the past few years. I I got it in two thousand seventeen when I was thirty. Two after the birth of my first child to eliminate a horizontal line in my forehead that had been bugging me in pictures then. I just felt compelled to maintain it during my second. Pregnancy actually missed the limited range of motion in my forehead. kind of like the okay. I missed the feeling of SORE ABS or like having ABS. The crunching sound is one of those things. That's alarming. At first. And then somehow routine like the noxious smell of bleach. When you're getting your hair highlighted or the discomfort of having a blackhead removed during a facial? Much to my surprise Dr Analytic agreed to all of this your millennial only millennial donate undo consent form after hours and the space offices are empty.

While I'm waiting for Dr Analytic to return learn. I think about the significance of the room wherein make no mistake. It's look his purely medical sterile surfaces white cabinets safety trash cans for proper syringe disposal and striker brand medical furniture but it doubles is so much more than a treatment room. It's therapist's office. A members only club and not not unlike a place of worship a sacred space where rituals are observed and repeated in a sixty minutes Australia segment from two thousand nine title. Changing face.

Doctor Returns with a bouquet of syringes changes and begins to decorate my jaw and neck and even that little no-man's-land between my eyes and ears with pinpricks and he does it all with this campy sense of humor.

Gottfried Jin Remembers. The Stigma Botox had when Fred brant arrived on the New York City beauty. Seen it was something like a dark art or Voodoo hardly the kind of treatment of feel good or like Gwyneth paltrow's goop would be promoting alongside ethically sourced Kashmir and and nontoxic deodorants. Not that feel good reason. We're exactly the rage back. Then people were talking about both off in sort of recently come out as the thing and will always gonNA freeze your face and will you botulism and I remember I wrote about it my column I wrote about that experience. I think I grew up. I don't have to dig it out but I decided in the thing that you know that stuff is the most toxic substances on earth. People are crazy injecting it into themselves and then you know I see the result but I'm like wow it was the beginning of both vo talks. Also certainly my doctor brand Dr Brandt win over skeptics like gene with something other than science. His secret sauce she says was the way he connected with. His patients. Really good certainly in my industry really good hairdressers really good makeup artist really good dermatologists. I think they take a lot of whoever their client is sitting in front of them. Take a lot of that person. Energy like in not just on to Dr Graham similar sort of top haired violence or something like that where they're looking and taking in that person really fully to figure out what beautiful about them and very different from I think. Sort of leverage talents are like how can I pay. You know the thing thing I already know onto that person sort of make them look like a beautiful person. She tells me about this one time. She went to see Dr Brandt during a specially difficult period Korea in her own life his empathy during that appointment stuck with her. I remember when I got divorced. I came in and I knew I was getting divorced. He took a really long longtime to to say. You're going to be fine and this is going to be good. A dermatologist. Appointment is incredibly intimate. Thing you're right up in someone stays and energy and and you're talking about how you appear to the world and your insecurities and so yeah I do think that's why that memory stands out in my mind is because I know he did that with everyone wasn't just like going in and being like you need. You know those good he later was was like absorbing people's energy in a way that I think both beautiful and very giving but also would make life hard. I think from imperative entertainment.

"Wake of Dr Brant's death. Many of his friends and colleagues were contacted by the press for their thoughts on whether the parody might have contributed did his depression. His longtime publicist Jackie Trachtenberg. Who declined to participate in this podcast but still works with current Dr Brandt? Skincare CEO. Stefan Kalou did her best to keep the peace the day after his death she told The New York Post that Dr Brent had suffered from depression in a previous statement she had confirmed only that he had passed away and that he'd been suffering from what she called an illness. This time she addressed the series. She said the show definitely deeply. I heard him. He was being made fun of because of the way he looks but the show was not the reason for his depression and it was not the reason he would take his own life. Tina fey has never publicly addressed the issue and her team. I responded to my request for response with a short email that read. We're going to respectfully decline and I would hope that the podcast doesn't delve into that area. Given it was unfounded and caused a stir in gossip circles. That was unfounded. After I sent emails to Schmidt met co-creator Robert Kerouac and episode Co Writer. Jack Bird it I heard from. Tina's rep again. This time. She had a lot more to say she wrote. I'm also curious areas as a longtime beauty editor at beauty and fashion magazines. Yourself the perspective your taking in the podcast on products such as TV commercials print ads and editorial magazine. Agassi covers that sell beauty to consumers and how that affects their mental health and self perception slash body confidence But yeah back then people wanted a villain. They wanted someone to blame on April nine. Th Two thousand fifteen four days after Dr Brands Death New York magazine published an article article in which former W beauty director Dana would was quoted as saying Tina Fey has blood on her hands. Would who is often credited with coining brands nickname. The barren of Bo talks in the late nineties soon received emails. Criticizing the choice of words from Monday morning basically basically that. It all started to come out that he had killed him so and I was literally headed to Disneyworld with my husband and my daughter and I was just like it hit me like a sledgehammer Tamer. I was destroyed. I'm like crying in the car like a maniac here. We are like going to Disney world the happiest place on earth and I'm like a complete basket case after that piece came out some woman track down. She was like she was so like angry at me for saying that launched into this whole thing about like how close were are you with him. Did you even see him in the last six months like this whole thing is bishop but I felt vindicated later because other like the New York Times where people we're like. That's an unequivocal like parody of Fred. The guy's name was Dr Grant or something right and there had been other triggers other incidents that had caused the doctor distress in the year leading up to his death a star client had allegedly developed a knowledgeable in her face after brant injected her with a controversial filler. Something will get into in a later episode in a March two thousand fourteen profile in the New York Times called the man behind the face garnered over one hundred comments from readers confounded by brands appearance. Dr Brandt may be a nice man as some have mentioned in the comments wrote one one but his appearance is shocking. His neck betrays what he's trying to hide with all of his own surgeries and fillers. That he is an elderly gentleman offered another. This man scares the Dickens out of me. But as you move toward fifty and the cloak of invisibility starts to cover you. It's easy to succumb to the wiles of this man I and others die treve a reporter and critic for the Times and the author of the peace new. The profile held at center a fascinating contradiction. You you know it's not the pret- didn't know how far he had gone. He knew and I mean in terms of the interventions but became interesting to me. was that there was this junk between his very very evolved aesthetic sense in one way and what he was able to do for people professionally and how that kind of out of sync with what he saw in the mirror. He's not alone alone in that. By the way I mean I've known of other tolerance and medical people who use themselves skinny pigs. What do you think is the most interesting thing about the France story you know? I think what's the extent to which end limited is something that we don't know how to talk about. which is all this messed up stuff? We feel about ourselves. He made himself at him.

Paul who had travelled from Connecticut took to the Bima to say a few words.

I'm nervous not only because I'm about to be in crazy. Close quarters with a gorgeous stranger. Let me tell you podcast studios are intimate and so freakishly quiet. But also because I had been told in no uncertain terms that Stefan had a hold over Dr Brandt that something I'm thinking was up with their relationship in September. Two Thousand Fifteen Memoriam in Vanity Fair writer lily analytic the wife of brands colleague. Robert touched on the fierce speculation surrounding brant's death. She wrote that popular theories as to why. Fred was depressed in the first place included. Getting older and unrequited love. One source is quoted. As saying at his sixtieth birthday party he was basically catatonic another says. He was in love of with bleep. Who supposedly straight? But she doesn't name names but I will full stop. Many people think Dr Dr Brandt was in love with Stefan that would perhaps explain why in his last will and Testament Dr Brandt designates Stefan along with his personal assistant Maggie to be the executor of his estate. Stefan is one of only six people who received cash payouts and to give you a better sense of Dr After branch net worth when his art collection which included pieces from contemporary artists like Damien Hirst Christopher Wool Marilyn Minter were sold at auction in two two thousand fifteen eighteen pieces in a collection of over two hundred sold for nearly twenty million dollars.

Yeah people are claiming his forehead or had wrinkles are smoother than they've ever been that's really funny also in that audacity yes favorite conspiracy theory of the week as if Bernie would pay for Botox in the picture. Sure seriously whereas like thirty dollars sputters from Kohl's yeah misspend money on boat docks and the picture on the left to. That doesn't look like a speaking engagement. That would warrant the amount of makeup a whole democratic debate too so that probably just make up. Yeah could be and he's also going. Oh instead of when you think of that versus. Oh you've got to kind of remember what your forehead does yes. People's US faces move. Watch watch trump start attacking him though tugs Birdie that would be. That'd be one that it'd be a better nickname than whatever I don't even think he has a nickname for for Bernie. Yeah does he everyone else. There's a what does he always kind of was kind to Bernie during the whole true. Yeah because they would cause he just fed into the narrative royal like totally helped him out. Yeah Oh that'd be such sweet justice. Though he's nominee this crazy Bernie or something. Maybe even nickname for him. WHO's crazy? I feel like there's another person that he says. This is crazy is horribly nancy. What is this nervous nervous Nancy? Crazy Joe Biden. Yeah it's crazy Joe by the Nielsen. It's like something from like a youth mystery novel or something he had also sleepy. Joe Biden get sleepy crazy. Yeah well yeah it's like yeah Children's book that goes to the alphabet but if it were made by white nationalists indoctrinate their children the nervous. Nancy don't be like Nancy. Yeah totally yeah. There's a guy in San Diego that has a funny joke about a book that he has and in it. It's like it's it's called Beers for Brooklyn or something and he says that the I says is for immigrant and his kid saw someone who was depicted. It's just basically a person of color in his kid not really knowing the social nuances of how to interact in that situation pointed to a person of Color and said Dad look is for immigrants at the the person was like what the fuck are you teaching your kid plane like. I swear it's the book it gets the book. Look if you want go ahead now I was just saying it's just kind of silly if you WanNa get actually wholesome version though like no then the opposite of the White Nationalist version of an alphabet book for kids. There's it's actually an awesome when I got from my nephew fears called as activist. Yeah that's a good book. Yeah that's awesome by that one cool anyway. Sorry there's a long tangent good Christmas gift. I'm sending them back to Nadler here. He he went on Nobody talks Nadler. went on to say That continued obstruction of Congress would have consequences says including losing the right to participate in the process quote if you continue to refuse to make witnesses and documents available to the committees of jurisdiction the chair. She'll have the discretion to impose appropriate remedies. Nobody's I I don't know how scared I am of Democratic Committee remedies at this point. But you know unless you're going to like invoke your inherit contempt from a hundred years ago and throw somebody into the underground dungeon I don't you know to keep to yourself. But apparently he can take away his right to appear or or call witnesses like they can actually do that. I think that that would probably be politically an optically terrible to do but I mean just just give them. The articles is just give him making an article obstruction. I don't think you have to punish them for obstructing other than making it an article of impeachment so we'll see Witnesses in the hearing will be academic Democ some constitutional scholars by the way impeachment experts. So no fact witnesses So I'll be watching that December fourth I'm interested to see who they bring on like his joist. Waistbands going to be on there Obama's a constitutional scholar. That'd be fun. Come when is what we need him. Yeah where is he now. He just kind of crept out to say don't be too progressive and then went back. Yeah so I don't know where he's at but I hear him reference that he plans on continuing to fight you. You know for what what's right. And what the country needs and stuff and. I don't doubt that he's doing that. I just wish I I wish we could see his face. And here's words more. Why know what he's doing right now? And what he has been doing with the Eric holder is working on voter suppression Call Motor Suppression They have put together a whole program to do that. but yeah I imagine once the Primary Hi Mary start he'll he'll endorse somebody. Come out and start campaign harder them and stuff but right now when they're still thirteen or however many people he can't really I mean all they can say is stuff in general like elected Democrat. John Yeah He also has respect for norms. That wouldn't really lend itself to the president previous coming out staunchly against the current president even though he's the worst president this country's ever seen yeah well he had a hard time with the Russia. Stuff off And he's just he's he's more moderate establishment fella. So yeah it's you know that's kind of where he's at so it sort of makes sense I mean right right or wrong it makes sense. Yeah anyhow we'll be.
Probiotics for gut health
"You know everyone talks talks about probiotics for a healthy gut but what what are the symptoms. Actually of an unhealthy got for people. That really don't know That can be really far ranging You know our gut is effectively. The equivalent of plant roots So it can affect everything from Psychology to skin into digestive abnormalities. It's really Pretty far-reaching well you know and it is far reaching it as you know. Yesterday we had Less yesterday we had Dr Marvin Sing on the show and he was talking. He was speaking so eloquently. A like you I might add About about the GUT microbiome. And there's there is so much that we don't we don't know but we do know how probiotics really do work to alleviate these symptoms because the gut is everything hang isn't it absolutely I'm probiotics work. From a number of mechanisms they worked to recondition the gut they worked to out compete. Bad neighbors So you can have bad bacteria what kind of you know. Air quotes around bad bacteria in the gut and probiotics are good bacteria that can crowd out. Bad neighbors will I this this is not one of the questions I had planned on asking you but you know people ask me this all the time and I'd love to hear from you. What your opinion is about it? They'll get on an antibiotic or they say they have have to you know And they'll wonder how. How should I take probiotics? If I'm taking taking antibiotics. Should I wait till I'm completely off the antibiotics or should I take them and while I'm taking antibiotics what's your what's your understanding of that so it's a very opinionated question A lot of controversy. Yes you out there in space Regarding how to use probiotics Alongside or post antibiotic therapy I think that that they should absolutely be taken in And and the right ones With alongside antibiotic therapy Of course with your practitioners blessing They can do things. Things like mitigate Diarrhea induced You know affects Mana Botox. That's one one application But generally speaking most the box very broad spectrum and the majority of probiotics are going to be Decimated if taken at the same time well you know. How do we know if if you go back to the stomach issues you know? How do you know if are stomach? Issues are because of bacteria and not just a bad meal or nerves or something like that. Well it can go both ways So you know you you set a bad meal right. So a bad meal can influence the gut bacteria negatively and then then send a Send feedback to the brain. That says hey you know what you just gave us good and we're letting you know that so it really depends on on the person But you know if your gut is feeling off there's a pretty good bet that you're bacteria also office well and that's sending a single title to your brain. It's called the GUT brain axis In medical terms well So so Can someone expect probiotics to alleviate one hundred percent of their symptoms. There got issues. That's a pretty. I mean it depends on what symptoms were talking about right. I mean and it depends on the probiotic absolutely. Yeah Yeah So. I'm looking at Tina you know after I asked that and you know she. She's a great example of the testimony. I mean I gave her. You know you guys were so gracious and Gaby's ladies gave us samples to give out to people and I gave her some and she had incredible results with it. Excellent yeah I mean for you. Know Supplementation and can be very unique right. There's no even our supplement tariff Laura. I'd you know I'd love to say that. It's great for every person on the planet. But the fact is that there's still going to be unique unique into individualized experiences out there so You know the best thing is just listen to your body and and see what fits
California Becomes First State to Ban Fur Production and Sales
"I don't have a funny quip about California so let's move on California he is a state in the United States and it is the first US state to ban animal for products the governor signed a bill over the weekend? that will bar residents from selling or making clothing shoes or handbags with I starting in twenty twenty three animal rights groups are obviously cheering about this development the proposal was vigorously opposed by the US for industry and the for Information Council of America has already threatened to Sue San Francisco and Los Angeles already had bans on trapping and sale Call A. for so those were two cities in the state of California where you couldn't really deal in for but this is the first Statewide ban here's what it doesn't apply to it does not apply to you used products or those made for religious or tribal purposes it excludes the sale of leather dog and cat fur cow-hides deer sheep and goats skin at anything preserved through taxidermy yeah so that's happening so you could still have vintage for as what is saying keep that also some pro for groups are saying listen this is not really being thought through because if you do fo- for that could be bad for the environment too because all the plastics chemicals which is not wrong but I think you could have two things happening simultaneously right I'm very confused by this dog and cat fur thing and I don't like it whatever it is I'm not not aboard do not support but I am into the restriction ends on producing or selling mink Chinchilla rabbit or other animals this is a huge event for animal rights activists it doesn't surprise me that is coming out of California I because those cities that you mentioned were so on board with getting underway I'm wondering if other states are going to follow suit what do you think as California goes so does the country right I don't think that's actually a saying does it arguably one of the leaders in the US fashion industry like when you think of Fashion Hud you have la you have New York which is at a different scale than la La has like larger manufacturing units New York has a lot of the offices and smaller manufacturing units got a little bit in the Carolinas you've got a little bit in the Detroit Area I think if you're looking yeah in Nashville and if you're looking for the the biggest impact the quickest for this it's going to be in California but I think a lot of people will voluntarily get on board with this especially if they're doing business with fashion houses that are based in California or have manufacturing units and California the the past two years we've seen a lot of movement within the fashion industry to start not using our products and there's kind of a snowball effect for instance Chanel Prada Gucci and burberry all said that they are going to use for anymore and they're minds and of course those aren't US base but there is kind of this effect where it's picking up steam so I'm interested to see what happens next

AbbVie Strikes Deal to Acquire Allergan for About $63 Billion
"Once again, we're gonna start with a big deal this time in the healthcare space. And I'm saying healthcare, just the huge umbrella of healthcare abbvie buying. Allergen Allergan, the maker of boats. Socks. This is a sixty three billion dollar deal cash and stock Algan. If your shareholder while you're having a heck of a good day because the buyout price is forty five percent higher than yesterday's close. I am curious though the fact that Algan is now only trading up about twenty five twenty eight percent higher. We'll get to whether or not this deal goes through. But this is this is yet another big deal. Yeah. The I mean, whether it goes through is going to be interesting, just from the perspective that it wasn't all that long ago that there was an offer made believer allergen for for quite a bit more than today's offer. But then, also the recent calls have been for the company actually to split up and spin off some of its assets to realize more value that way. And then you find yourself where you are today as shareholder in the deal and is, is gonna be the best way to realize value for our shareholders. I don't know. Maybe I mean, I feel I it is a deal that brings together to companies that can likely do more together than separately. They're not a lot of overlap there. I look at this space, it kinda feels like that chip maker space in the sense that they're always stuck on this wheel of never ending innovation. You've always got to come up with something new the next big thing. And if you don't come up with the next big thing, I mean, the fall from grace can be pretty pretty severe. But I mean you know with our I mean, that's I think most people probably know it for talks and. I'm a little bit conflicted. They're just because botox I know there's some therapeutic implications there with migraines. It seems to be more something people associate with wrinkles, and like, cosmetic stuff. We gotta wonder how really necessary that is. I mean, other than just someone's vanity and I don't really have a lot of sympathy for that. But, you know, I mean it's a difficult one of work drugs face a lot of scrutiny in they're going to be plenty failures. It's questionable honestly today, whether you should be using some of them so interesting to see how this plays out. Well, and yesterday Dan climate, I talked about the merger in the casino industry with El Dorado and Caesar's. And that's one that, you know, at least to here damn clientele over the long term. That's you know, the he feels good about that deal, clearly, based on what's happening with shares of abbvie today. Looks like there, plenty of people who don't like this deal or. At least think that they are paying too much for elegant because shares abbvie are down about fifteen percent, and it's not like this stocks light in the world on fire the last eighteen months. Yeah. And I mean, you know, we talk about that a lot in that the acquirer usually feels a little bit of a pinch on the day of deal and the, the acquired feels a little bit of a bump does seem like these are heavier reactions than we might normally see. And I mean I do get that. Because when you look at our. In its overall business. I mean, you're talking sensually between botox cosmetics and therapeutics. That's more than two point five billion dollars of the company's overall sales,

"This. Marketplace podcast is brought to you by the university of Florida Warrington college of business transform your future with an MBA from one of America's top ten universities. Learn more at Warrington dot ufl dot EDU slash MBA. People in their twenties and thirties are getting injections to look more like their selfie filters from American public media. This is marketplace tech demystifying the digital economy. I'm Ali would. Selby's are an art form on social media. But some young people aren't happy with just a Snapchat or Instagram filter. They want the lip cheek and forehead injections. So that their real life faces match the doctor itself fees. The American Academy of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery says there's been a twenty percent increase in botox injections among eighteen to thirty seven year olds in the last five years. Marketplace reporter, Eric embarrassed, it's reporting on this recently. And she told me that the makers of injectable fillers which smooth out the lines on your face like a photo filter. Does are starting to spend a lot more money on social media marketing, our Gan, which is the company that makes boat talks makes Juve Dharam does cool sculpting. That's where they're paying influencers to do a lot of the work. So people are on Instagram anyway, looking at other people's faces all the time. And then they're seeing people that they might follow women that they might look up to. And they're seeing that they also were are actually, you know, talking. About these things, you know, they're like hash tagging Sunday afternoon. Hashtag tocks hashtag filter. Hashtag fillers. You know, the whole thing. Yeah. Tell me more specifically about what people are getting done like what specific procedures than what are people trying to look like. So the most basic thing that most people are getting done is just getting, you know, likable talks injection that kind of freezes your face and kind of makes you look relaxed. But then after that there's a lot of small spas that have opened up that are offering things like institute, which is some stuff that you can get put in your cheeks that give you like sort of a higher cheekbone. You can get your lips done and make them a little bit plumper a lot plumper. There's all kinds of stuff that you can get done. I understand that one woman told you she really has heard of people asking to look more like the filters that they have seen on social media. Right. Yeah. So one woman I spoke with who's Twenty-seven-year-old in Rhode Island. And she says she just gets her lips done. She gets imbo both talks. But it's pretty like normalized amongst her group of friends, and she has a couple. They get a little shot of Duve Derm in the tip of their nose. It makes them look a little bit like that Snapchat filter, and I just thought that was kind of fascinating like the idea that you wanna look like what your online reflection looks like do you have a sense of whether any of the doctors are ethically conflicted about this. Do they resist it at all? Yeah. So I did talk to one doctor who actually is the head of one of the plastic surgery. National plastic surgery associations in Memphis, and he refuses to give anyone any kind of injectable or bow talks unless they medically need it or if they're under a certain age. So he's adamant lead not doing it. But at the same time, he knows that there's like clinics just right up the street that you can just walk into. I think the big part of it is is that because you know, it's it's an elective procedure. It's a lot of money. And so you're budgeting thousand or two thousand a year, you know, it can be hard to say no to that. Erica barris is a reporter with marketplace. Last year. Researchers at the Boston University school of medicine Warren. About what they called Snapchat, Dismore FIA and said, it could lead to body Dismore fic- disorder, a mental illness that causes people to obsess about their imagined defects. And now for some related links head over to our website. Marketplace tech dot org for a link to a longer story that Erica did about this four marketplace and more stories about Snapchat, Dismore, Fiat, and how it has plastic surgeons worry earlier this year doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital published a guide for cosmetic practitioners to help them figure out when they're dealing with someone who is beyond normal discontent with their appearance and onto the obsessive compulsive spectrum that is body this Morphing disorder their research that as many as thirteen percent of people seeking cosmetic surgery have the disorder and in a fun. Fact, I learned that dissatisfaction with your appearance is so common in basically, everyone that researchers call it quote normative discontent. There is a hopeful story from Taylor Laurenz over at the Atlantic though from just a couple of weeks ago about how even though those twenty and thirty somethings or getting the nose injections, look more like their filters. The next generation. Of influencers is actually rejecting the carefully edited super stylized aesthetic, and they're going for a quote, Messier and more unfiltered vibe, the story quotes, a fifteen year old influencers who says that avocado toast and posts on the beach are generic and played out and that it's not cool anymore to be manufactured. So maybe the children really are our future. Unless allergen comes calling with the big check. I'm Ali would. And that's marketplace tech. This is a PM.
A Woman Had a Dangerous Allergic Reaction After Sex. Here's Why
"Being reported by science alert. A woman has an NFL lactic reaction to seamen. Now. This is pretty scary. And this could happen to a lot of people. Probably not me. Married. Twenty years not route not going to happen me. But apparently there was a thirty year old woman in Spain. And she showed up to the emergency room at the general university hospital valley Kante, she was vomiting profusely shortness of breath entire body covered in high. So an Anna flack reaction not technically shock, but in NFL access for your whole body reacts to an allergy. So it a moderate and of lactic reaction now. This is this is a case report published they believe what happened. Is he performed oral sex on somebody who had just had an antibiotic that she ended up being allergic to. They say the patient's reaction started after having unprotected sex to male partner, which involved oral ejaculation. According to the case reports. Now, there is seminal plasma hypersensitivity. It's a rare allergic reaction that could affect females. And there could be something within the semen that they could react to now. You know, there's plasma that's the liquid that carry sperm, and it has a lot of proteins and some people may be allergic to the specific protein. But they think maybe it wasn't the protein, but it was because the gentleman had been taking ibuprofen and augmented in the five days leading up to the incident. That's a type of prescription antibiotic medication. He had a middle ear infection. And apparently his last dose was four hours before the couple had sex say you're not supposed to be doing kissing, and you're not supposed to be doing lovey-dovey side stuff. If you're saying if you're on antibiotics, I remember when I'd be saying botox, you know, I had to like stay in my room. I couldn't hug or kiss anybody in the house people have sex when they're sick when they have the flu. I I was I did one of my shows in Arizona, and it was on a Christmas and somebody had the flu and he asked and his girlfriend. So yes, the people to wear a mask while having sex. So he want to give her the flu. Mike, how do you want to have sex when you have the flu? The arch is supposed to be bedridden. I mean, I have a good sex drive. But if I have the flu I'm in bed and stay away from me. But I guess people are trying to figure out how to still have sex the flu worry masks. So anyway, this gentleman the thirty two year old man was on augmented and Augmentin is amoxicillin moccasins on the penicillin family. And the doctors think that maybe that's what happened. Where she might have had a penicillin allergy. Now, they say the woman was actually diagnosed with her allergy as a child, but the doctors think they've never seen an instance of an allergy like this. This is the first reported case of a possible amoxicillin and just NFL axis and a woman after oral sexual contact with a man who was taking the drug. The doctor's note that few studies have investigated whether drugs might be concentrated in semen. But they note that a fear radically plausible in this case due to the chemical composition of seminal plasma antioxidant and amoxicillin readily dissolves in fats, and there are fats and lipids within the semen to I guess, you know, allow a more hospitable environment for the sperm. So the patient was treated that flexes medication made a full recovery. Her doctors decide to write up the case report when they realized that they might have unique event on their hands internet searches revealed that other people drug allergies have written about something like this happening. But there was nothing in the medical literature. So the recommendation is to use condoms if you're taking any medications to which your partner could be allergic. We think that as clinicians it is important to be aware of this phenomenon to inform and prevent potentially serious reactions in sensitized patients, and this was published in the case report now. Okay. Wow. Wow. Wow. Makes sense though, make sense. I mean, you know, we take a lot of things for granted. And you know, our bodies are designed to do certain things, and they're not designed for other certain things. And so, you know, to be honest. Oral sex is not something that was evolutionary planned. In our animals DNA. Okay. As animals, and we are animals we're supposed to have sex. Maybe a couple of different ways. That's how we're built. Now, we as humans have decided to fanciful things we do a lot of different things. Now. Some including the chandelier some including a quick moment. You know, and you know, certain positions that I don't think we're ever you know, that a person is designed to do. And then of course, also. Or sort of sex. And so. It's not shocking. That somebody could possibly have some sort of a reaction. I mean because we're supposed to be able to have sex relatively safe. You're not really supposed to die from as long as you. Do it the right way. You're not supposed to die from sex. Nobody's supposed to die from sex. That's the way we built some of you guys are like, wow. You know, what about STD's? Well, no think about you know, in the animal kingdom, many animal kingdom just supposed to be a monogamous partner. So, you know, you have a monogamous partner they've never had sex before you you've never had sex. You guys decide to have sex have babies stay together. Nobody has an SSD because they get it from anything else. So technically. Having sex the old biblical way should be probably one of the safest. Yes, you can't die from child birth. Yes. But in terms of Saxon should be fairly safe. But when we started to add other components to it. And choreograph other things and I'm not saying it's wrong. It's just that's what people do it does open up a little bit of risk. And so if you have any allergies. That could be an issue. Now, I had been asked years ago. If somebody was deadly allergic to shrimp, should they avoid oral sex if their partner h strength, and I told them it wouldn't hurt to avoid it just in case. But also kissing you could also give it from kissing to. But since we don't exactly know, what ends up happening in terms of being concentrated down there. I would play it safe. Now chairpeople pretty pretty bad at that whole segment going. No, no, no, you're anti or I'm not saying, I'm anti anything. It's just from a medical standpoint, you know, people like, well, gosh, you know, we just can't live a normal life will actually use you can't live normal life gave this was a rare occurrence. But just keep in mind. We do things that we might not technically be built for the whole purpose of sex is for procreation not recreation, even though yes, I'm a big fan of recreational sex. I think it's a great recreation or exercise, I think. You know, people in monogamous relationship should do it be safe. But we do at a lot of other things that you know, we weren't designed for. So let's just kind of leave it at that and move on as quickly as possible. One eight seven seven one eight hundred seventy oh C D A L.
