Solutions for Menopause Symptoms
"Well. Let's get started on today's topic. And i. i want to clear up a misconception. That many women still believe in the past. Many women were told that as we age and reach menopausal years we become deficient in the hormone estrogen. Now the truth is most women have too much estrogen. The excess estrogen. Let's just call it. Estrogen dominance and joanne is gonna talk more about that as well. That's right. I think a better way to explain. Estrogen dominance is if we compare the amount of the hormone progesterone that we have to the amount of estrogen that we have so. It's really we really want to be in balance and when we have too much estrogen and not enough progesterone. That is where we get the term. Estrogen dominance right and when we taught her popular menopause survival seminar in house. Most women were very surprised to hear they did not need more estrogen from hormone replacement therapy or hr t which has a lot of what they had heard from Their from their doctors And to be honest these women actually needed to detox. The excess toxic estrogens for their health. Now some of you might be wondering what are the symptoms of access toxic estrogen. So i want to share some information before. I answer that question because i find that women. Even when they're younger you know in their thirties or forties they can also experience those symptoms of estrogen dominance or excess estrogen and so again too much estrogen. That's the of what we've always been told her. That the misconception that we need more men right. here's just a couple of the symptoms that can occur from this. Estrogen dominance and so many women will experience. They'll notice a decrease in sex drive decrease in libido irregular menstrual periods swelling of the breasts breast tenderness. Even fibro cystic breasts. Disease and uterine fibroids sign of too much estrogen right. You had mentioned earlier Headaches or migraines the ones that come before the menstrual cycle. That's right irritability. Depression problems sleeping insomnia and of course weight gain is another one favorite topic right exactly. Oh in joanne You and i were talking before the show about how we have both had clients in the past who had come in and they would talk about. Oh i used to get headaches and migraines but they would be coming to us postmenopausal and they say oh my headaches and migraines no longer bother me right. So that's just an example of someone who was getting headaches and migraines due to likely s excess estrogen right and then with you know with menopause. The hormones all shift right and then the headaches and migraines style and that's not the only caused migraines but it definitely plays in because yachts of women have come in and say i used to get migraines but now don't anymore so we know that's true and there are also more Other more serious symptoms that have been linked to excess estrogen or estrogen dominance and there are certainly links to estrogen dominance and breast cancer. There's also links to uterine cancer. There are links between excessive estrogen and autoimmune diseases especially comes to mind the hypo hypothyroid shimoda thyroiditis. There is a link between excess. Estrogen and excessive. Blood clotting that can lead to heart disease so those symptoms can be very serious.

"Ovarian Colon and uterine cancer, and his scoops. One of the best ways to do that is to. Cascade from the index person who has to genetic mutation and likely has the cancer at presentation. So we cascade out to unaffected family members to see WHO's inherited that same genetic tendency or genetic predisposition, and try and target cancer prevention to those groups. Both of these orders, for example are autosomal dominant. So if you have that genetic predisposition, your children, your siblings, your parents have a fifty percent risk of having that same genetic condition and therefore be at risk of those same cancers that we may potentially be able to prevent altogether. If someone undergoes a generic genetic testing. To look for on propensity toward cancer, it doesn't necessarily mean they won't develop cancer because not all cancers we know the genetic link get would that be correct about fifteen to twenty percent of cancers are H-. Are associated with genetic inherited mutation. So the vast majority eighty percent, we don't have a clear genetic 'cause. It's probably a combination of genes, your environment, and then some amount of bad luck as well, and we'll get a chance to learn more about the work that you're doing at. The upcoming Virtual Center for individualized medicine. Conference on October the fourteenth. Can you tell us a little bit about what to expect from that conference that'll be really a meeting of the minds bring together some of the authorities across mayoclinic that have expertise and inherited cancer cancer treatment.

Well, for the first time since the walk for hope began in 1997, they will be going virtual on August. Excuse me. October 4th. Dr Stephen Foreman joins us now and it's great to talk to you again. Doctor. How you been? I'm good. Thank you Hear both of your voices under sorry. I'm not there to see you. Sorry. I'm missing your Dodgers had this year. I am wearing it for this interview in my office. Let's talk about in general cancer treatments, and I know that that's one of the side stories that's come out of covert 19. Is that so many people? Have gone undiagnosed simply because they're either afraid to go to the doctor. They don't know what's going on. Can you talk at all about that? I can because I have seen the number of patients who clearly had symptoms that developed in the early part of 2020. And when the pandemic and the shutdown Ah started they did not pursue going to the doctor. And so I'm seeing patients who are much more advanced. You have more symptoms, and they would have had at the time if they had been seen by the doctor earlier, But I think Trying to get to a doctor. Finding an open place. Uh, was the challenge. We've remained open, obviously throughout it and have made adjustments to make sure that we can have people come here safely as we possibly can so that they're not getting behind on their therapy and therefore have a better chance of overcoming the cancer that was diagnosed. But basically, we're saying later diagnoses more advanced disease just because of delays in getting to the right people the right time. Herbal. I was reading about your new way that city of hope is delivering chemotherapy to women that will allow them to keep their hair. It's in clinical trial right now. We're Yes, Uh, this is ah Relative, a unique AA program. It's called Pressurized intraperitoneal therapy. It's therapy to put in the abdomen and has really focused on women who have a certain type of cancer, namely ovarian and uterine cancer, because it tends to be spread but spread within the abdomen. So by putting the therapy in To the abdomen. First, you get the drugs to record where the cancer cells are be. It has less attacked on the rest of the body and one of the visual things that benefits is the absence of loss of hair. So it's it's for unique settings. But if you have that situation having is available, I think improves once quality of life are one sense of oneself. If you don't lose your hair, something we have to confront in both men and women when we give certain types of chemotherapy, So yeah, it's one of the programs that addressing How to better take care of women who have these diseases last year. Obviously walk for hope included the actual walking this year. It's different and things have changed. How can we keep the pressure on and make sure that we raise money? For this virtual walk for hope that we're doing this year. So it is a campaign on and we've had. We've spent a lot of time trying to design it so that people can being engaged and do their part online. If you go to walk for hope dot or Gyu will see very clearly how to register. See, it's uh, it's a show of support for women particular with breast cancer and other women's cancer and people who go on, attend or basically positions. Nurses loved ones, family members, and it's our attempt to try to all holed up together virtually in the same way that we used to be able to do it in person with the hope and expectation that next year will be back together again. I think our point is, it's been since the pandemic started. Is that Cancer hasn't stopped. We haven't stopped and we had worked on figuring out ways both to care for people and support our patients..

And one more thing I should tell you though, I saw her more than a year ago. So she's fifty nine hundred woman with colon cancer spread to the spine and the lung and the abdomen. And I saw her and we offered treatment she did not want chemotherapy, because she knew how difficult it would be especially with multiple sclerosis but for any person, and we treated her for metastatic cancer and well, she came in this week with their loved ones in remission. A year after treatment in remission doing well, this is the work we do this woman did not want to have any further surgery. She's fed up a surgery. She didn't want to have chemo.

Then we truly talk about all the options so often, we see patients who've been elsewhere in the surgery talks about surgery and the chemo. Dr about chemo. What we talk about all the options because we think it's fair. That's why I went to medical school to offer patients all the options to help people not to sow chemo and not to sell surgery and not to so radiation and not to sell a hospital, but to see people and offer all the options in the most logical way we could. And this is the work that we do every day at thirteen four Broadway and for this one with metastatic cancer. This is the work we do. And this is. Is what the patient wanted received and has done.

"And so you want to reduce your risk of those as much as possible and bio identical hormones are a great way. Way to reduce that risk. So I really believe and you feel great, and you lose weight on average women lose ten to fifteen pounds with bio identical hormones, and I have other treatment methods that for women who need to lose more. They lose more. But that is what women lose on average with bio identical hormone replacement. So it is so valuable to for your overall health, in fact, losing that weight is part of the reason why you reduce your risk of heart disease because a lot of the weight, you gain is fat and a lot of the weight you lose with and that weight that you gain is three menopause women gain on average ten to fifteen pounds during menopause, and they're gaining fat. They're not gaining muscle. So we've by hormones you lose some of that fat. You turn some of that fat into muscle. And you feel great you have better vitality better sexual health. And what do I mean by better sexual health? That's the Buteau is stronger and lubrication is better and overall even orgasm is better with bio identical hormones, so it's such a great way to live life. It's such a better way to age and age healthily, and it's really phenomenal. So so let's talk about the myths, and that's what we're going to talk about tonight because I think that so many women are scared of taking by dental hormones, and I think that in some ways, this is sort of a purposeful misleading of women based on maybe not conscious but media glamorization of some negative findings. And you know, that's just how the media is. They they focus on. Negativity. And you know that happens all the time just as I'm not going to go to into that. But I will tell you that that negativity has led to some of these myths. So let's start with myth number one and myth number one. Is that estrogen causes cancer? Okay. And I can tell you that anytime I mentioned the word hormones. It's almost like a Pavlovian response by a lot of women almost like a reflex. Like, oh, I don't want that. I don't want cancer. Well, that is a myth and the myth is that bio identical hormones. Do not cause cancer certainly estrogen. None of the estrogens have been shown to cause cancer even breast cancer. So and when estrogen progesterone are balanced, they don't cause uterine cancer, either estrogen does not cause cancer, and there's so many benefits of taking bio identical hormones, and so many studies that have shown that the that taking estrogen does not cause cancer. So it is a myth and this myth again. Nobody wants cancer. It's I'm sure we all know people who have had cancer. And it is a horrible thing to see. It's it's a horrible way to decline, and it's a horrible way to die. And so I can understand why someone would not want cancer. It's perfectly understandable, but hormones. Are not going to cause that don't deprive yourself of the benefit of bio identical hormones because of this myth. This myth is propagated by. Irrational fears and irrational projections because even though the biggest studies showed that by that estrogen does not cause cancer at certainly bio identical estrogen does not cause cancer. So that's a myth, and please get it out of your mind because it is the priming you of a benefit, and, you know, I'm talking about hormone replacement, and I strongly believe that my method of hormone replacement is really top notch to make someone feel good and energetic. But I don't care if you come to me, I just want you to go undergo bio identical hormone replacement doesn't have to be with me. I think it should be with me because I think I do a good job at it..

"I'm happy to be with you to talk about health care, and how to be smarter how to be a better patient how to be up to this stuff when you have to deal with healthcare professionals who only deal with patients every day and most people are amateurs department. So sometimes amateurs don't really understand all the nuances are the language as this show is geared to help. You get better healthcare to help understand the healthcare system and for your loved ones. Friends and neighbors to get better care because sometimes when you see a health care professional, whether it's a doctor or physician assistant or nurse. He may not be getting all the story. The doctor may not be telling you all the options, and you may not understand what's going on. And you may consent to something that you don't fully wish to have happened to you. I can tell you that so many patients who've lost an arm or breast or along or a pancreas or bladder or kidney or prostate, and they did it because they felt they were compelled to or there were no options and only later listening really to this show listening to our work. Do they understand that had they been better educated? They could have made better decisions and had a better life. So that's what this is all about. And we have radio shows every day on the radio, and we have them, really. For one purpose, and that is educate and just as an example, what talk about a lady who I saw yesterday, she came into my office, and she has metastatic uterine cancer. And she's been seeing me recently, and she's been seeing a chemo doctor and the chemo doctor called me, and I returned the call and couldn't get through to her. And then the patient was here in my office, and the patients that we please call my doctor back, and yes, of course, I call reward back for hours calling people back to try to answer questions and put the call on speaker phone, so the patient and her husband could hear me and the chemo Dr talking about her case. And this is a woman who has stage four cancer and for many people stage four cancer, by the way means educational point that the cancer has traveled you should travel through the bloodstream to another site, maybe deliver the long or the bone or the brain traveled and this woman and her. Answers traveled chemo before and the chemo doesn't work. What is chemotherapy? Or why is it called chemo chemotherapy is really chemicals chemicals that are supposed to help. So when you say chemotherapy, you get the idea that it's supposed to help. Because it's what of the words is therapy. But in fact, often the chemotherapy stops working or doesn't work or toxic because the chemicals are form of poison tried to poison the cancer and the chemicals are going in your body as if the chemicals that are poisoning going your body. They can poison innocent bystanders like you're hearing or your eyes or your bone marrow. Your nerves or your kidneys or your lungs, and those are called so-called side effects, whether or not really side effects when you put a poison in your body, you're expecting some toxic city. It's just a matter of how much could be tolerated. And so for this woman, she had chemotherapy for metastatic, uterine cancer, and it didn't work. Work. She then came to me because the chemotherapy didn't work and it wasn't tolerated. And it was toxic. And we treated a site. It was successful. And then she went back to see the chemo doctor told the chemo Dr. Well, I've been seeing Dr Liederman he's forgiven me radio surgery, and the chemo doctor says, well, I think you should have chemotherapy for the rest of your life. Well, think about that. It's like a death sentence. You're going to have chemotherapy for the rest of your life. And so the patient wanted to hear my response to her doctor about her case while she was there in front of me. And that's exactly what happened. And it was useful. It's useful. I'm related to you. So you can understand what the chemo doctors probably telling the patient, and she was telling the patient. Yes, she should have chemo for the rest of her life. And then the chemo doctor said well and the chemo solution is permanent. I said what are you talking about? I said number one the chemo. Oh therapy. Treatment isn't the beneficial effects are permanent because for stage for cancer either the chemo will work or not. And if it doesn't work, then it's useless. And if it does work after a while the cancer just resisted in Groesbeck anyway, so the beneficial effects of chemo for stage for cancer are never permanent nearly never permanent. Let's say nearly never.

"Program. Today's the day, and it's not groundhog day. It's a different day. And I told the doctor you could talk about it. And then he told me about the fact that he's wearing red boxers. So I'm gonna take my headphones off and just let him do his thing. It's go red for women day. Right. And this is the day where we all recognize the fact that women are under treated and under served when it comes to cardiovascular disease more women than men die every year from heart disease and data shows that we treat men much more aggressively than women, and I think today's the day that we all need to just take stock in the fact that that women's greatest health risk is dying from heart disease, not breast cancer. It's not uterine cancer those are health risk, but heart disease is what kills the most women. Okay. So why you talk about why they're under served. If the woman is having a medical issue is because the doctors are not properly trained to look for it is it because when you think of a heart attack, you think of a dude part of it is perception, you think of a man who has crushing chest pain and radiation of the pain down the arm Necker, jaw shortness of breath, women present differently now, they can have classic symptoms. Sometimes they have feelings of. Dread. Sometimes they can just feel like they got pain in their back. Sometimes they can feel anxious or uncomfortable, and these can be symptoms in women. So the key is as a physician or as a female, you need to understand what your risks are. Do you have high blood pressure diabetes? Do you smoke? Do you have a family history? Do you have high cholesterol, if you have these risk factors, and you have these atypical symptoms you need to be evaluated? And that's the biggest problem here is a lack of awareness and education. We have one of the PSA is what we run is talking about. If you ever have to provide chest compressions for CPR say, I do it to the beat of staying alive. When you're when you're doing CPR on a woman is to something from the frozen soundtrack or should you stick with the BG's? I would stick with the BG's because that's the right ratio of chest compressions, and you know, that you make a good point every person. That's listening to.

"The American Cancer Society said today that the death rate from cancer fell twenty seven percent between nineteen ninety one and two thousand sixteen the Cancer Society says that translates to two point six million deaths prevented during that time. But as John Yang report, not all the news is good. Judy. The study says the steady decline is largely due to fewer people smoking and advances in early detection and treatment death rates from lung. Colorectal prostate and breast cancers have all dropped, but obesity related cancer deaths are on the rise, and the disparity between deaths in rich and poor communities is getting wider cancer remains the nation's second leading cause of death behind heart disease and experts rejected more than six hundred thousand Americans will die from it this year. Dr Jay Leonard Lipton. Feld is here to walk us through the report. He's the American Cancer society's acting chief medical officer, Dr looked and felt thanks so much for being with us. Let's sort of unpacked some of these numbers. You talk about the study says lung cancer. Rate's going down largely because smoking is going down. But it's going down twice as fast among men among women. Why is that John? We need to understand the men have been smoking for much longer time and women began to take up the habit in the late sixties one thousand nine hundred seventy s so took a while longer time for the women to understand that smoking is not good for your health. Did for the men and the death rate decline in men. This started more steeply earlier than it did for women. Fortunately, we're seeing decreases in smoking and decreases in lung cancer death rates for both men and women as we provide this report. And the study also found that there are higher lung cancer rates among women born in the nineteen sixties compared to men of the same age any idea why that is. Well, that's correct. That was research was actually recently reported by my colleagues here at the American Cancer Society. The reality is we don't really know why that's happening. It's not due to differences and smoking behaviors. So there are other factors that are leading to that increase in lung cancer. Having said that I think is very very important for all of this thunder stand that lung cancer happens in non smokers too. We have a tendency to sort of over emphasize the smoking aspects, but nonsmokers can get lung cancer and may. A somewhat different disease. We don't know the may respond differently to treatments, and we're learning about that as well. But the bottom line is we're starting to see that occur in younger people, particularly younger women, and we need to learn more about why that is happening. And as I said in the introduction. There's also in the study says that obesity related cancer deaths are increasing the rate of deficit, increasing what types of cancers are we talking about there. Well, there are a number of cancers that are linked to obesity thirteen an all perhaps more, but we certainly know that breast cancer and particularly cancer of the uterus in women are are related to obesity liver. Cancer colon cancer, their number of cancers that are impacted by being overweight, and we also know that in this country we have an obesity epidemic and that has not yet completely played out. So again, we we know this is a problem. We don't yet know how much of an impact is going to have going forward. But it will have an impact does something that we need to know we need to take into account. We need to alert people that this is a very serious problem. The study also said that the racial disparity is, narrowing the disparity between cancer deaths among African Americans among white people is narrowing. But that it's getting wider the disparity between bad outcomes in rich communities and poor communities. What what he thinks behind that? Well, it's not only rich and poor communities. This also in rural communities in the cities. And there are a lot of explanations for the most obvious of which is that some of the lifestyle behavior different among those who are poor versus those who are better educated. So smoking behaviors alcohol consumption, other lifestyle issues obesity might be a factor as well. So that's just one part of the explanation, but access to care is very very critical matter. And if you don't have funds, if you don't have insurance, you don't get the type of care that might be the best care for you. If you have cancer and access to care in rural communities is a very serious issue throughout our country. There are large parts of the United States were adequate medical care, particularly adequate cancer care requires people to travel great distances or even getting screened for cancer. So we need to really take a very careful look at all of these issues. And I do think we need to make a national commitment. We all need to make a commitment personal commitment. Whether it be government other organizations, the American Cancer Society among them, we need to take a careful look at this and figure out what we need to do to make the outcomes equal. We know we can do we've seen that happen that equal care can produce equal outcomes. We just need to make certain that everyone has access to that equal care. Doctor J Leonard Lipton fell to the American Cancer Society. Thank you. So very much. Thank you. Me too. A good book can be transformative in age of social media and a growing popularity of book clubs what we read can also help create communities. Jeffrey Brown explores all this with gory. Eat them who has created a space to celebrate voices that might not otherwise be heard the well red black Pearl is online community and book lab that focuses on black women writers, we really focus on building amplify the voices of black women, especially they'd be writers. And so we have a festival of book club and online presence. So you can participate in various ways wasn't an office idea. Very unexpected idea was actually a gift from my partner. Peo- he may be the earth that said well, red black girl, and I found myself in conversation with so many different women and its first idea that I should actually start something with this. What is it means to be a well read blacker conversation because they were seeing your shirt on the subway in the grocery store at the gym. I they inquired where do I get this shirt? Great. And then it was like, so who are your favorite authors. And who are you reading naturally, we went see Tony Morrison Gordon dealer? Maya Angelou, we've talked about the literary greats that really influenced the black cannon, and then it started. So what are you reading? Now, where the new writers that are on your book shelves, and I it was really a curiosity thing. And the beginning was quite selfish. I wanted to make new friends, and as I did that it grew. And I built the Instagram the presence on Instagram grew and it just got larger and larger clearly tapped into some some oh. It was a lot of times thought women we are visible in spaces. And when it comes to the publishing industry, there's not always avenue for women's become writers or under understand what the dynamics are. And it just became like a cheerleading spot for those who want to do the writing and want them people to buy their books. They have to really seamlessly. So the the Thala g. You asked all these writers that kind of question when did you first see yourself? Yes. Because that was the way into well. That was the origin sore for me. I have always been a person to question and to look for myself in books. My favorite book is my Angelo's. I know why the caged bird sings, and that was the first time I really saw myself on the pages of a bath. Meaning watch in terms of reflection. Understanding the dialogue having someone that felt and looks like me on the I had read a lot of Little Women. I I saw myself in Joe March I read weathering heights before that I don't think I really saw an accurate reflection of a young black girl coming of age until I read my Angelo in Toni Morrison the bluest eye such a classic for so many young black women. It was a turning point for me. It really understand that the story of black womanhood is one of survival and shoe and just excellence as well. Just an interesting thing. The one thing that books we often say those of us who are readers. We find ourselves in others. We learn about ourselves. Even if we're not Representative in that story. Oh, completely just practicing. This muscle of senior selves in someone else's story and building a stronger perspective and a lot of these stories whether it's more or Jacqueline Woodson Jerry Jones, they are really looking at their origin stories, and what led them to become writers. What helps them really see their own stories and the books that they read that's really important like you need that reflection for anyone. So what surprised you when you started getting their response? You did you love the all the tributes to Tony Morrison? Oh, yes. Is so beautiful. So she she was really a highlight in the collection and also not all the stories were dedicated necessarily, the black women Barbara Smith writes about James Baldwin, and how his words really helped her become a writer. There's one writer Gabby. She writes about while doll and how reading the memory boy was fundamental her experience. So it's not necessarily just about. Zac reflection. But to make sure that these symbols have meaning and they feel significant. Yeah. And you can really just explore like reading feels to me like exploratory practice, you should be able to find cheerleaders and stories where you can fall into these role. Of course, writers these women who became writers how much did you see their origin story? Connecting to the writers if they became. Oh, yeah completely. I mean, I think of jasmine ward. You know at the end of her story. She says she didn't she read this one book, and it wasn't until she wrote her own that she was able to it was such a profound seatmate a powerful way to end it compelled to watch right? It's all her own story. And I think that is the take away from the enthralling that we should be telling our own stories, and we need to be for assistant with that. And not not give up we've been talking so much about the writers says you said started with readers. Yes. Who were the reader? There's so many readers. The Indian theology. I have lists of reading recommendations. And I did that very intentionally because I was thinking about my Ingersoll, and the things that I wanted to read I always I always wonder read to kill a Mockingbird. I wanted other alternatives. And this book has a list about black feminism black playwrights speculative fiction. Black coming of age stories poetry is a full lifting of how to reimagined the literary canon, and there's no excuse to say like, I don't know what you know person of color. I can introduce mysel- abyss or to my high school costume. I think of it as hopefully a great tool for young people and educators, you still have an actual book club. Yes. I do. Yes. Old-fashioned book club. Get together. And it's a great. You know, I think for me having a book club is a great lesson and listening. I really loved listening to everyone tell their own story and how they relate to the characters get so my favorite part. I love doing social media. But being able to sit next to a reader and look them in the eye and persuade them maybe like a character a little bit more. I love that back and forth right to well. Red black girl book club red black girl. Yes, glorieta. Thank you very much so much. And finally, another in.
"uterine cancer" Discussed on WINT 1330 AM
"Have been to fancy steak houses, and I've cooked steak on my own ad, the only speak, I really really will like time and time again is outback steak houses private, I just love how they do the private soupy. I'm. Anyway. There's an outback steakhouse where a worker has been diagnosed with hepatitis A. So we'll talk about that. Now, you're in cancer rates are rising. Women are seaweed to get a little bit more afflicted commonly the what uterine cancer than in previous decades. We're also being told that overall cancer rates are down. Now, I get I've been on air for almost ten years. I think tomorrow now. Yeah. Tomorrow is my ten year radio birthday. I can away of happy. So tomorrow, my tenure radio birthday, very very happy. And so I would like to credit cancer rates go down because of me. That now now that's not there's apparently there's some other my colleagues they get a touch bit of credit, but we have the overall nationwide. Cancer rate falling pretty damn nicely. Life expectancy up. Life expectancy starting to level off and they actually lower, and then we have uterine cancer rising. So I'm gonna talk to you about how you got to kind of take with a grain of salt what's going on here. And let's dissect what's happening. They say if it fence don't get enough sleep. By the time. They're six months to year. They're gonna have issues later. So all these parents that freak out that their kid isn't sleeping well at night. Maybe right. Speaking of kids, we have a hospital banning the little young ones from coming to the hospital because they don't want them to get the flu. Let's talk about that. We got a bystander who decided to save somebody's life right by performance CPR. And he listened to he had in his head the song you stay alive. Stay alive, which we've talked about many times in many medical experts have talked about how that song. Stay live has the perfect beat tempo for performance. If you are very very Cobra talk about that. Then this whole vaping epidemic. I think you have a lot of people not knowing what the hell to do. And when it comes to the vaping epidemic. And so they're tackling it wrong and experts are saying we can't be looking at the vaping epidemic. Like we did with tobacco. This is a much different monster. And we do have a victim academic now. And I don't see it let it up. So we're gonna talk about that. And then, you know, being your radio, Dr I really worry about you guys is health, and we have now list of the most dangerous jobs in the US, including electrocutions firefighters and police officers we are looking at I have about I the top twenty five. Deathly scary jobs out there. I looked up radio host. I don't see that. So you can see we've got a very ended up. Never too busy to take your calls your questions or comments at one eight seven seven Dali one eight seven seven zero seek the but you know, I do want to say, I have some soccer's. I do. And that does make me a little nervous. I never talk to you guys about that. Ivan somebody who's been stalking me for about ten years. There's been somebody who's been stalking me college. That's a whole nother story. We need to talk about one day. And you know, when somebody talks about a stalker, the recipient of the story thinks, okay, this person is all full of themselves. You know, it's like having 'paparazzi. They just wanna brag about it. I really haven't talked about any of my stalkers have. I you guys because it is not something. I'm proud of it something that kind of scares you. And I don't scare easily while I do like there's spider, you know, or the chocolate shortage. That's for boated to happen in two thousand thirty. I I do get scared a little bit. But trust me having soccer's is nothing nothing to brag about that. Does not mean you made it famous. I mean, no because people have stalkers I mean ex girlfriend's ex boyfriends ex wives people stock, and I wanna talk a little bit about how many people just naturally have stocking qualities. You know, there are people out there that are are good guys. They're good people. But they fall for somebody or they get fascinated by somebody and the fixate on them, and they obsess and now stocking doesn't necessarily have to be driving by your place of work. I mean, it could be on Facebook. It could be, you know, Colleen, and and trying to listen to your voice, I there's a whole variety of things. And the reason why I bring it up is because I have had some listeners that have asked me about you know, their breakup. Are they at risk of Venus stalker because they go on social media and see what their ex boyfriend or ex girlfriend or doing. So we need to really break that down. When are you forlorn, right? Having lost your love and wondering you turned into a stalker. So don't go away. We'll be right back. One eight seven seven. Speak speak speak. All I do is speak. But you know, what I'm good at it. So request to.
FDA Issues a Recall of the Popular High Blood Pressure Drug
"I remember that generic blood pressure medication that had to be recalled. Barely. There was a suspected carcinogen. Now, they found a second carcinogen. So I'll tell you guys what's going on. We actually got some good news and bad news within so we'll deal with the bad news. First. Regulators are flagging a second potential carcinogen in the China made heart drunk as you know. There was a blood pressure medicine. Generic blood pressure medicine, Vel certain manufactured in. Zhang whole high pharmaceuticals in China. And as part of the manufacturing process n d m a was created and praises of it were found within the pills. This happened back in the summer. And so health regulators had to as well as our FDA had to initiate worldwide recalls of the generic medication. Thou certain is a generic for the brand name divan fantastic blood pressure medicine in the AARP, the edgy tested receptor blocker family. But unfortunately, during the generic processing that happened in this Chinese pharmaceutical plants this after product or by product was made and D M A, which is the original one that was found. It basically contains nitrosamines nitrosamines it's in that classroom. Nitrosamines has been linked to cancer, especially in animals. We also see nitrosamines in smoked cured meats. Tobacco. And these nitro sa- means have unfortunately been implicated in amicable cancers such as lung and liver. So the second I guess compound rather than the nitro so Di methyl Amine is the nitro so diethylene N D E A. So rather than Di methyl Amine? It's Di ethyl Amine and DA that has also been detected in the Val certain made by Jay z Zhang cli- pharmaceuticals in its previous manufacturing process before changes were introduced it two thousand twelve so data on levels of NDA. And what it can actually do is still limited. And so the European Medicines Agency is all over this. They're the ones that of came out, you know, making us aware, and they are going to provide further information on whether it's presence impacts of risk assessment. Once more information becomes available. Now, the watchdog also says at further risk assessment had confirmed that the lifetime risk of cancer from exposure to these is still very low. So what is the good news? Well, there has been a recent study sane. There is overall no short-term risk of cancer. According to the latest study on the DM, a not the N D E A because the news just broke. And they've been studying the MD as since the July recall, so the US FDA July recall, the veldt certain medications, and then the FDA European health agencies wanted to look into where we weren't cancer risk. They say Danish patients exposed to eight invalid certain products, do not appear to be more likely to develop cancer. That's according to the study. And the study was just published yesterday. So according to casper Christensen, we found no evidence of an increase in short-term risk of cancer from exposure to contaminated products in the study of all adult Val sergeant users now he's a doctoral student with the university of southern Denmark's public health department. But I'm thinking, wait a second. It's been what forty five days. It's been forty five to sixty days. And how do you know that there's not going to be long term cancer risk again? Nobody's giving us the quantities of this NDA may or this NDA. So I think it's too soon. But he says that says a too soon to tell whether people exposed to end EMA vowel certain will have a long-term higher risk of cancer. So when you hear this you're like, wait a second. So short term risk means getting cancer early. But I wonder if I'm going to get cancer in my life. I mean, if somebody says, look, you may get cancer. You know at some point in your life. I mean, whether you tell me I'm gonna get into months or two years. I I'd like to know I'd like to have all my questions answered now. Please. So they say researchers did find some evidence that might influence short term risk of colon uterine cancer. But results were not statistically significant again one US exports. None of over the city expressed caution. He says, I don't think there's any reason to say this research sounds the all clear, that's according to Dr James Januzzi, it looks like jacuzzi. But it's Januzzi. He's a cardiologists with Massachusetts General Hospital. He says I literally just got off the phone with the patient of called me about this question. And I switch them off the generic certain to another drug now, not all Val certain medicines for the high blood pressure or heart failure having recalled only certain brands, so the recalled products were those distributed by major pharmaceutical socal healthcare and Tiba pharmaceuticals. Also, some of the certain hydrochlorothiazide formulations that were distributed by socal healthcare. So about certain many times will be added to a little diabetic. There'll be a little diarrhea added to it. And that seems. To augment its blood pressure lowering effect. Plus it helps with heart failure. I it's a great class of medication. I love the air because medication to just this is a manufacturing issue. And the question I have is if they caught this in this one drug. What about all the other drugs? I mean, I I'm hoping they are researching like crazy every single drug made out of this pharmaceutical plant, and then look at some other plants because people copy each other's manufacturing process. I doubt this is the only plant that did this. So contaminated medications. This is the first time we've seen it happened. It looks like they've been on top of it. And from what I understand all those products should be out of the loop. But what's gonna end up happening is people are going to avoid certain altogether.
Dogs being trained to detect ovarian cancer
"The studio ovarian cancer symptom awareness is the name of the organization Valley I wanna get to what ovarian, cancer symptom awareness is what the organization is about an event you have coming up but I am not going to bury the lead and the. Lead is, dogs are. Being trained quite effectively as it turns out to. Detect cancer so that's I'm gonna I'm? Going, to start in the middle there ex- explain explain what that is all, about well our organization has a partnership at the, veterinary community and through that partnership we. Formed a great relationship with Dr Cindy Jato and the pin. Bet working dog center and she, has a team of four dogs that are sniffy now the odor inside ovarian. Cancer we've been supporting. Her for the last five years and they're very close to Determining the sense of ovarian. Cancer that will be transmitted to an, electronic knows. That will all now you're confusing so explain so. The dogs let's do it one step at it's the dogs are actually being trained by Dr. Otto that the university, of Pennsylvania school of veterinary medicine to actually determine that one is ovarian cancer and that one isn't yes okay so that's happening yes and it's. Happening effectively, yes all. Right so because there isn't going to be though. I like the idea a dog in? Every, exam room in America right what would be the use of these dogs, and I think that's what you were getting to, when I said whoa explain that so. The dogs are identifying the odor ends and they're taking that. Data, and giving it to Manila. Chemical company is working very closely with Dr Otto and her team and they Are the dogs have been ninety nine percent accurate in determining ovarian cancer cell lines and so that information is being transmitted and turn electric knows and the the ultimate. Result. Of. That will be? A. Blood test and that? Will. Be given. To women that will identify if they have ovarian cancer all right so let's do this again step by step. So. At some point in the not too distant? Future we're helping so at some point relatively soon yes not decades, away, I suspect. But years away yes because it still has to be approved by the government I mentioned okay so. You'll be able to go to your doctor's office and then what, will happen They you it'll, be. A blood blood tests now and then the problem now with ovarian cancer and lots. Of other kinds of cancers is that by the time the blood test says here's some bad news you've already had ovarian cancer, for some time and they don't find it until stage three or four typically that's. Correct all. Right so the way to salvo Varian cancer. To treat it better like a lot of things is simply defined. It earlier cracked this will help. That, to happen yes. It'll be a blood test. That, will determine immediately if there is over in cancer in. In the. Blood. And which and that could be stage one which is ideal ideal gonna find yeah So I mean it's a a blood, test now that you know we have our blood tests that determine our you know. Our kidney levels are what it'll be, that kind of testing that will be an, alert an early alert simple blood test or a part of the blood panel I suppose, women yes that's the. Hope insurance would pay for it is the, hope hope yes and and then the blood panelists sent. To? Wear mo-. Nell chemical. Company is the organization that has created this electronic knows that. Will review doesn't view the test does it literally Mimika, dogs. In some ways yes so the. Idea, it sounds crazy so if valley if you would have thought that you would be telling me this fifteen years ago I suppose you wouldn't have thought, you'd be ever telling anybody this. Now No but my father was a veterinarian and, I believe all things possible in the veterinary world so the dog's nose A. Dog's, nose is. So. Incredible that these dogs, are finding ovarian, cancer and this is a replica of that dog's nose yes sort. Of yes and and this replica? If, you will this. Computer generated. Will. Be able to determine whether ovarian? Cancer cells are there early on early on yes in early detection save? Lives, yeah so talk about that is what what's the difference between finding ovarian cancer stage one. Compared to stage four They it's is, there a short answer the person lives essentially potentially yes but it's. It's good to know that there? Are, thirty three different. Kinds of. Ovarian. Cancer at different levels yeah you? Can have a stage one that is as serious as a stage four So. It's, you. Know if you have a family, history and you have any of the symptoms. For two weeks or more don't ignore them go see your doctor and we'll talk about what symptoms are because the mission of your organization I believe. Is to educate people yes, yes so we'll. Do some, education. Here but. It's quite amazing what dogs can do all of, this started, in part because of a? Friend of mine who, has? Since, passed away and a friend of sued Janssen who's on the phone sue Johnson writes about companion animals as. Well, good morning sue good morning thank you for getting up so early for us So tell us what. Our mutual friend and your, dear friend dare. Lean art, and. Did before. She passed away of ovarian cancer of all things He was a certified animal behavior consulted dogs and cats She was a writer Had several books she, did a radio show so she would periodically be on our show and sometimes poor. Thing. Beyond her show exactly Yes yes so she said I understand the interrelationship here between people dogs and the ability of, dogs noses to find things that we couldn't even fathom finding actually had that foresight a. Couple of years ago and created a fund and you have an announcement to make having to do with all that Exactly I Wanted to do something to continue her. Legacy And to continue to honor and. The work that she was so passionate about so I am creating a funder starting this fun too Gift To the ovarian cancer symptom awareness group in order to continue their outreach, program veterinary outreach, program and the dog sniffing program that will hopefully eventually lead to early detection which will lead to saving lives I mean this this is, quite incredible and we're talking ovarian cancer valley but Dr Otto herself the researcher. Who you know I know. Has told me I'm, more than one occasion gee, if we could do this for ovarian cancer I think we've opened up the genie's bottle, and now we have the super-secret these are not her words I can assure you he's. Not, her. Scientific words, but we, have now the secret and we can replicate this, for other texts of cancers particularly those like stomach cancer uterine cancer bladder cancer are typically not found until later. On right exactly and that's you know we're focusing on the ovarian cancer piece of, it but our entire team is so energized that the thought that it could lead to early detection for other cancers and when sue talk to, you off the, air days and days ago and said I'm coming in for your event which you can talk about she Another announcement as well. Correct Yes I she's we're delighted that show becoming to our dog walk on September. Ninth To LeRoy oaks forest preserve in Saint Charles and she's. Coming in from, Kansas and we're thrills she and I have. Never met in person so I'm very very happy to welcome her to Saint Charles? And, she's going, to talk about the fund that she is supporting Darlene to memory Yeah and you know helping us with an ongoing fund that can help us not only support Dr Otto's work but get out there and get the word out on the silence sometimes you know sue I know you were dare leans dearest friend in the world and, this must mean a lot to, you to know that these dollars that you continue to raise. That the ovarian, cancer symptom awareness organization continues to raise are. Really making a difference in a way that might even go beyond with Darlene envisioned Oh absolutely I it's it is really thrilling and I, just excited to be a part of it well I'm sorry that. I can't see. You. Out in San, off somewhere I don't even know where I'm going to be I think Myrtle Beach speaking, at a conference and then onto Portland somewhere but I'll be somewhere. Other, than here, unfortunately, but I'm glad you're coming here and I thank you for, your help with all this yeah we'll talk more about the benefit in detail when we come back and what ovarian cancer symptom awareness is what the organization is what they do and much more on WGN.

"uterine cancer" Discussed on The Skeptics' Guide to the Universe
"15 of 26 percent so that's estimated at two million three hundred seventy eight thousand six hundred fewer deaths than would have occurred at the end of that span in 2015 if the death rate had not changed at all if it had stated its peak that's a really good side and now some of that is somewhat artifacts ewell but most of that is due to increase in treatment increase in early prevention so new cases of cancer it varies from for men to women men and women gift different types of cancer not surprisingly the top type in men as prostate cancer women don't have a prostate so we don't get the and the top type in females is breast cancer men do have breast and can get breast cancer but it's not nearly as common number two for both of them is lung cancer or lung and bronchial cancer number three for both males and females is colon and rectum number four is actually quite similar in men it's a urinary and bladder cancer and women it's eh uterine cancer and then it goes on from there thyroid melanoma and they vary but those are the top causes our cases i'm sorry but deaths what do you think is the most common type of cancer that kills you in both men and women lung cancer lung cancer is own both men and women and that's kind of different because historically more men died from lung cancer than women but now it's it kills it's still kills less women per year but percentage wise it kills 25 percent of cancer deaths and women are lung and branca's and 26 percent of cancer deaths in men are luck in london broncos and then it goes to prostate and breast colon and rectum and the number four leading cause of death cancer deaths is pancreas cancer and slow lung cancer is going down great because absolutely and that that's part of the reason that all cancer has gone down lung cancer.
