This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Cozy Earth, and InsideTracker.Many people think of metabolism as one specific system in the body, when in fact it's the sum of many different processes that are serving other vital roles for us as well. Our bodies are not closed systems, so our environment, social networks, diet, hormones, microbiome, genetics, and more, all influence how well our metabolism works, or how well we can extract energy from our food. I'm so happy to sit down with my good friend Dr. William Li to talk about what metabolism really means, why the old way of thinking about metabolism hasn't helped us, and how to make positive impacts on our metabolism at any age. Dr. William Li is a world-renowned physician, scientist, speaker, and author of Eat to Beat Disease - The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself. He is best known for leading the Angiogenesis Foundation. His groundbreaking work has impacted more than 70 diseases, including cancer, diabetes, blindness, heart disease, and obesity. An author of over 100 scientific publications in leading journals such as Science, the New England Journal of Medicine, The Lancet, and more, Dr. Li has served on the faculties of Harvard, Tufts, and Dartmouth Medical School.This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, Cozy Earth, and InsideTracker.You can check out a free, live demo with a Q&A or create an account at RupaHealth.com.Right now, get 40% off your Cozy Earth sheets at cozyearth.com and use code MARK40.InsideTracker is offering my community 20% off at insidetracker.com/drhyman.Here are more details from our interview (audio version / Apple Subscriber version):Shifting away from the idea that eating less and exercising more is the key to weight loss (4:51 / 2:12) How calories affect metabolism (13:14 / 11:25) Research measuring the four phases of metabolism as we age (16:07 / 13:36) What is metabolism?

VIDEOS: 1. The Anti-Smartphone Revolution – (13:23) ColdFusion 2. Gravitas Plus: Explained: The China-Taiwan conflict (9:11)   HEALTH NEWS Astonishing effects of grapes, remarkable potential for health benefits Frequent nut consumption associated with less inflammation Body posture affects how oral drugs absorbed by stomach [why not supplements too?]  Lifting Weights Beats Out Cycling, Swimming For Vegans Wanting Stronger Bones Perfectionism Linked To Burnout At Work, School And Sports, Research Finds  Mindfulness Therapy Better Than Antidepressants Astonishing effects of grapes, remarkable potential for health benefits Western New England University, August 8, 2022 Recent studies released by Dr. John Pezzuto and his team from Western New England University show “astonishing” effects of grape consumption and “remarkable” impacts on health and on lifespans. Published in the journal Foods, one study showed that adding grapes in an amount equal to just under two cups of grapes per day to a high-fat diet, typically consumed in western countries, yielded reductions in fatty liver and extended lifespans.  Noting that these studies add an entirely new dimension to the old saying ‘you are what you eat,' Pezzuto, who has authored over 600 scientific studies, said that the work with grapes showed actual changes in genetic expression. “That is truly remarkable.” Adding grapes to a high-fat diet also increased levels of antioxidant genes and delayed natural death.  Acknowledging that it is not an exact science to translate years of lifespan from a mouse to a human, Pezzuto said that his best estimate is the change observed in the study would correspond to an additional 4-5 years in the life of a human. Another study by Dr. Pezzuto and his team published in the journal Antioxidants, reported that grape consumption altered gene expression in the brain and had positive effects on behavior and cognition that were impaired by a high-fat diet.  Frequent nut consumption associated with less inflammation Brigham and Women's Hospital, August 1, 2022 In a study of more than 5,000 people, investigators from Brigham and Women's Hospital have found that greater intake of nuts was associated with lower levels of biomarkers of inflammation, a finding that may help explain the health benefits of nuts. The results of the study appear in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. “Population studies have consistently supported a protective role of nuts against cardiometabolic disorders such as cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, and we know that inflammation is a key process in the development of these diseases,” said corresponding author Ying Bao, MD, ScD, an epidemiologist in BWH's Channing Division of Network Medicine. “Our new work suggests that nuts may exert their beneficial effects in part by reducing systemic inflammation.” In the current study, the research team performed a cross-sectional analysis of data from the Nurses' Health Study, which includes more than 120,000 female registered nurses, and from the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study, which includes more than 50,000 male health professionals. The team assessed diet using questionnaires and looked at the levels of certain telltale proteins known as biomarkers in blood samples collected from the study participants. They measured three well-established biomarkers of inflammation: C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin 6 (IL6) and tumor necrosis factor receptor 2 (TNFR2). After adjusting for age, medical history, lifestyle and other variables, they found that participants who had consumed five or more servings of nuts per week had lower levels of CRP and IL6 than those who never or almost never ate nuts. In addition, people who substituted three servings per week of nuts in place of red meat, processed meat, eggs or refined grains had significantly lower levels of CRP and IL6. Peanuts and tree nuts contain a number of healthful components including magnesium, fiber, L-arginine, antioxidants and unsaturated fatty acids such as α-linolenic acid.  Body posture affects how oral drugs absorbed by stomach [why not supplements too?]  Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, August 8, 2022 A common, economic, and easy method of administering drugs is orally, by swallowing a pill or capsule. But oral administration is the most complex way for the human body to absorb an active pharmaceutical ingredient, because the bioavailability of the drug in the gastrointestinal tract depends on the medication's ingredients and the stomach's dynamic physiological environment. In Physics of Fluids, researchers from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine employ a biomimetic in-silico simulator based on the realistic anatomy and morphology of the stomach—a “StomachSim”—to investigate and quantify the effect of body posture and stomach motility on drug bioavailability. “”When the pill reaches the stomach, the motion of the stomach walls and the flow of contents inside determine the rate at which it dissolves. The properties of the pill and the stomach contents also play a major role. Stomach contents, motility, and gastric fluid dynamics all play a role in a drug's bioavailability, and stomach contractions can induce pressure and generate complex pill trajectories. This results in varying rates of pill dissolution and nonuniform emptying of the drug into the duodenum and, sometimes, gastric dumping in the case of modified-release dosage. The modeling appears to be the first of its kind to couple gastric biomechanics of posture with pill movement and drug dissolution to quantify an active pharmaceutical ingredientpassing through the pylorus into the duodenum. The model enabled the researchers to calculate and compare the emptying rate and the release of a dissolved active pharmaceutical ingredient into the duodenum for a variety of physiological situations. Lifting Weights Beats Out Cycling, Swimming For Vegans Wanting Stronger Bones Medical University of Vienna (Austria), August 2, 2022 When it comes to bone health, a new study finds people on a plant-based diet should grab the dumbbells. Researchers in Austria have found that lifting weights is the best form of exercise for vegans – trumping cycling and swimming. The team found that vegans who do resistance training once a week – such as machine-work, free weights, or bodyweight resistance – have stronger bones than plant-based eaters who do other forms of exercise. The new study, published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, found vegans who did resistance training had similar bone structure to omnivores — people who eat both meat and vegetables. For at least five years, authors followed 43 men and women on a plant-based diet and 45 men and women who eat meat as well. “Our study showed resistance training offsets diminished bone structure in vegan people when compared to omnivores.” Perfectionism linked to burnout at work, school and sports, research finds  York St. John University (UK), July 31, 2022 Concerns about perfectionism can sabotage success at work, school or on the playing field, leading to stress, burnout and potential health problems, according to new research published by the Society for Personality and Social Psychology.  In the first meta-analysis of the relationship between perfectionism and burnout, researchers analyzed the findings from 43 previous studies conducted over the past 20 years. It turns out perfectionism isn't all bad. One aspect of perfectionism called “perfectionistic strivings” involves the setting of high personal standards and working toward those goals in a pro-active manner. These efforts may help maintain a sense of accomplishment and delay the debilitating effects of burnout, the study found.  The dark side of perfectionism, called “perfectionistic concerns,” can be more detrimental when people constantly worry about making mistakes, letting others down, or not measuring up to their own impossibly high standards, said lead researcher Andrew Hill, an associate professor of sport psychology at York St. John University in England. Previous research has shown that perfectionistic concerns and the stress they generate can contribute to serious healthproblems, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, fatigue and even early mortality. The study was published online in the Personality and Social Psychology Review. The study found that perfectionistic concerns had the strongest negative effects in contributing to burnout in the workplace, possibly because people have more social support and clearly defined objectives in education and sports. A student can be rewarded for hard work with a high grade, or a tennis player can win the big match, but a stellar performance in the workplace may not be recognized or rewarded, which may contribute to cynicism and burnout.  “People need to learn to challenge the irrational beliefs that underlie perfectionistic concerns by setting realistic goals, accepting failure as a learning opportunity, and forgiving themselves when they fail,” Hill said. “Creating environments where creativity, effort and perseverance are valued also would help.”  Mindfulness Therapy Better Than Antidepressants University of Exeter (UK), July 31, 2022  Antidepressants are big business.  But for the same money, and without the side effects, a little mindfulness can do the same job.  A new study from the University of Exeter in the UK suggests that mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) is just as good as drugs – and maybe even better   MBCT is a structured training program for the mind and body.  It was developed to help people deal with repeated bouts of depression.  It teaches them skills to recognize and respond constructively to the thoughts and feelings associated with relapse.  In other words, it helps patients re-focus their thoughts as a way to avoid falling back into depression. Prior studies have shown that MBCT reduces the risk of relapse or recurrence of depression by about 34% compared to usual care or placebo.  B The research published in The Lancet  followed a group of 424 depressed patients for two years. The patients had all suffered three or more previous major depressive episodes.  And they were all taking a maintenance course of antidepressants. The MBCT group attended eight group therapy sessions in which they learned mindfulness practices and cognitive-behavioral skills, and participated in group discussions.   After two years, relapse rates were worse in the drug group.  The drug group relapsed at the rate of 47% compared to only 44% for the mindfulness group.  The researchers concluded that MBCT may be an effective alternative to antidepressants for prevention of depressive relapse with no significant difference in cost. And it may be a good alternative for people who choose not to use drugs.  But they also suggested MBCT was more beneficial than drugs in preventing relapses in patients who were at highest risk of relapse especially those who reported severe childhood abuse.

Over the last several years, the “limit of viability” for neonates has decreased dramatically. The new “lower limit” of neonatal viability can now be considered to be as early as 22 gestational weeks. But there's a lot more to that statement! In this session, we will review the latest data on neonatal survival in the Periviable interval. We will highlight and summarize a new publication from the Lancet published on July 25, 2022. Should we be performing “universal resuscitation” at 22 weeks? Or should we take a more “selective” approach? Let's summarize the latest data.

So wait a minute, the primary treatment we have to help people with depression targets serotonin, and serotonin has little or nothing to do with depression. How could we possibly take so long to discover something this fundamental? With so many people taking these pills, there is a lot to talk about. ✔Lesson transcript: https://adeptenglish.com/lessons/english-listening-practice-serotonin-depression/ English Listening Practice: Serotonin Imbalance Does Not Cause Depression Anti-depression medication affects the people who take it. Otherwise, why prescribe the drugs to so many people and for such long periods of time? People will tell you that anti-depressant pills have helped them, but whatever is going on medically is now being questioned by some heavyweight medical research from University College London.

Thank you.IAS BlogsTo read blogs click here.Shift in England’s drinking during COVID-19 could lead to 150,000 more cases of disease by 2035 🎵 Podcast feature 🎵A new IAS and HealthLumen modelling study suggests changes in alcohol consumption during the COVID-19 pandemic are likely to lead to thousands of additional cases of diseases and premature deaths.The pandemic saw heavier drinkers consuming more alcohol and this trend is continuing. If consumption does not return to 2019 levels or lower, England could see an additional 147,892 cases and 9,914 additional premature deaths from nine alcohol-related diseases, costing the NHS £1.2bn.Three scenarios were modelled between 2022 and 2035 to project how recent changes in drinking may affect health harm from nine alcohol-related diseases: high blood pressure, stroke, liver cirrhosis, and six forms of cancer. The research found:Joint Lead on the study Dr Sadie Boniface said:“Much of the health harm from alcohol is from chronic diseases which take years to develop. Our results shed light on the long-term impacts of recent changes in drinking patterns.“These increases in alcohol harm, lives lost, and costs to the NHS projected in our study are not inevitable.“Deaths from alcohol are at record levels, and this research should act as a ‘wake-up call’ to take alcohol harm seriously as part of recovery planning from the pandemic.”A very similar modelling study by the University of Sheffield was published at the same time and backed up IAS’ findings. The Sheffield study looked at more diseases across a longer period of time, so projected higher alcohol-related deaths and hospital admissions.Dr Boniface was interviewed on the BBC News, explaining the study findings and implications:If you missed our launch webinar, where Dr Boniface and Sheffield’s lead author Colin Angus presented their studies, you can catch up on YouTube here.The global burden of poor analysisIn mid-July, a new Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study was published in The Lancet. The GBD study is a long-running observational epidemiological study. Their new publication was widely covered in the media with most either stating that “alcohol is never good for people under 40” or “Young people should not drink alcohol but older people may benefit from small amounts”.The study found that for men aged 15-39, the recommended amount of alcohol before “risking health loss” was just 0.136 of a standard drink a day. For women of the same age, the “theoretical minimum risk exposure level” was 0.273 drinks – about a quarter of a standard drink a day.Among those aged 40-64, safe alcohol consumption levels ranged from about half a standard drink a day to almost two standard drinks. For those aged 65 or older, the risks of “health loss from alcohol consumption” were reached after consuming a little more than three standard drinks a day.The senior author, Dr Emmanuela Gakidou, professor of health metrics sciences at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine, said:“Our message is simple: young people should not drink, but older people may benefit from drinking small amounts.”This is in contrast to their study four year ago, which said that even the occasional drink was harmful to health and suggested governments should advise people to abstain entirely.Colin Angus wrote an IAS blog criticising elements of the study, for instance the study saying “older people may benefit from drinking small amounts” could be seen to suggest non-drinking older people should take up drinking for its supposed protective effects. Another major issue he flagged was that the study tells you “absolutely nothing about the difference in risks between age groups or the absolute risks that people are facing as a consequence of their drinking”.In the media Mr Angus said:“Younger people are, on average, much less likely to become ill or die from any cause than their older counterparts. Assessing how we should set drinking guidelines or prioritise interventions to minimise the total harm of alcohol requires an assessment of absolute, not relative risk.“The GBD’s own figures suggest that there are over 14 times as many alcohol-attributable deaths in the UK among 70-74 year-olds than 20-24 year olds, which rather contradicts the assertion in this new study that we should focus on the drinking of younger age groups.”Statistician Sir David Spiegelhalter also criticised the study on Twitter:Minimum pricing has never been promoted as a panaceaIn the 22nd of July’s BMJ Editorial, IAS’ Dr Sadie Boniface discussed the new WHO report on minimum pricing policies for alcohol, explaining the report structure and stating that minimum pricing “is an effective part of the policy toolbox for reducing harm from alcohol”.Following a number of recent reports that minimum pricing has failed in Scotland, Dr Boniface writes in the Editorial:“Minimum pricing has never been promoted as a panacea, so arguments that it does not singlehandedly eliminate harm from alcohol can be rejected. Proponents do not claim, for example, that minimum pricing is enough to reduce alcohol consumption and harm among people who are dependent on alcohol, for whom the wider healthcare and support needs are obvious. Minimum pricing is one policy in the toolbox, needed alongside others as part of a coherent strategy.”Dr Boniface discusses what a coherent policy landscape would look like, with population level policies implemented, effectively monitored and evaluated, alongside a suitably resourced and accessible healthcare system offering support. She explains that policies have to be independent from industry influence, an influence which remains a major challenge to a coherent approach.Pubs: “lost forever” or consolidated?According to real estate consultancy Altus Group, there were 39,970 pubs in June, down by more than 7,000 since 2012. Altus said after struggling through Covid the industry now faces soaring prices and higher energy costs.Altus said that pubs which had "disappeared" from the communities they once served had either been demolished or converted for other purposes, meaning that they were "lost forever".A 2017 IAS publication found publicans often attributed pub closures to failures of their managers who are unable to respond to shifting consumer expectations. It also found supermarkets undercutting pubs in price was the major threat to pubs’ commercial viability. As shown below, the gap between on and off-trade consumption has been steadily widening for many years:Another reason for pub closures is consolidation of business into bigger bars. This ONS report in 2018 showed that while small pubs were closing, big pub chains were consolidating business, with employee numbers and overall revenue remaining relatively constantThe Government said:"We've cut taxes for hundreds of thousands of businesses by increasing the Employment Allowance while slashing fuel duty. We've also introduced a 50% business rates relief for eligible High Street businesses and prevented bill increases by freezing the business rates multiplier, saving businesses £4.6bn over the next five years."Health Disparities white paper delayedThe Health Disparities white paper – due to be published in late July – has been delayed for the summer and will only go ahead if given the green light by the new Prime Minister.The white paper is set to include further legislation to increase alternatives to tobacco products and increase alcohol-free products in pubs.An ITV article said:“In recent weeks charities and other health groups have been pushing for the paper to introduce preventative measures and measures that have a population wide focus. Sources said there was a risk that a future pm could drop this agenda - although pointed out that the policies had been framed as "non-nanny state" - perhaps to try to make sure it had Cabinet support.”The white paper is said to include a change to the classification of no and low alcohol beers. Currently no-alcohol has to be 0.5% or lower and low-alcohol 1.2% or lower. This could rise to 1% and 3% respectively.The change is said to be designed to help people cut down alcohol consumption “by helping brewers make low-strength options more appealing”.Professor Sir Ian Gilmore, chair of the AHA, suggested that more evidence was needed on low-alcohol products but said “if it could be done in a way without brand promotion, we would be supportive”.However, Gilmore said the plan was “tinkering round the edges” and that the government had “consistently put its head in the sand on evidence-based policies that have been shown worldwide to reduce harm”, mainly by increasing prices and reducing availability.Boris Johnson “minimises” sexual harassment and blames alcoholWhile being question by the Liaison Committee about his handling of the conduct of former deputy chief whip Chris Pincher, Boris Johnson said there’s a problem with alcohol in Westminster and that “some people simply can’t take their drink”.Conservative committee member Caroline Nokes MP asked him “have you just sat there and told us that alcohol is an excuse?”, to which Boris disagreed.In the resignation letter of parliamentary private secretary Mark Fletcher, he wrote about the Pincher assault:“You suggested that the events of that night were the fault of the colleagues who were present for allowing him to drink too much. Such a view seems to me an attempt to absolve Mr Pincher of his actions and, in so doing, to be an apologist for someone who has committed sexual assault.”Ian Hamilton, of the University of York, wrote in the Independent that alcohol should not be used as an excuse for predatory sexual behaviour as this displaces responsibility from the perpetrator. He wrote:“While the victim is left with the impression that it was the drug rather than the person responsible, the perpetrator tries to evade taking responsibility for what they did. This hardly gives anyone hope that this predatory behaviour will change. Even if predators become abstinent from alcohol, this won’t magically displace their thought processes and perception about what is permissible and what isn’t, in relation to others.”Industry arguments dominate Commons debate on alcohol tax reformOn 7 July the Commons debated the proposed reform to alcohol duty, with discussion of its impact on the alcohol industry – particularly the wine industry – dominating proceedings.Welsh Conservative Alun Cairns opened the debate and asked for “minor adjustments” to the strength bands and Small Brewers’ Relief.Various other MPs spoke of the new system being too complicated, with too many tax bands, and how wine producers will find it difficult as wine strength is dependent on the weather.Liberal Democrat MP Daisy Cooper said: “Overall, the alcohol duty reforms proposed by the Government just tinker around the edges in dealing with the pressures facing hospitality”, seemingly not recognising the importance of the public health element of the reform.Shadow Exchequer Secretary, Abena Oppong-Asare MP, said Labour agrees the system should be simplified and be more consistent, and be balanced across public health and supporting business. She said the wine bands should be looked at, as the new system has too much red tape, as should changes to beer duty which currently would help bigger brewers more than small brewers.Oppong-Asare went on to point out the cider exceptionalism, with it having a lower rate than beer in the proposals, and asked the Treasury to explain why this is when strong cheap cider causes so much harm.Financial Secretary to the Treasury, Lucy Frazer MP responded to the majority of the concerns and said they will be looked into. She did highlight that public health was a major reason for the reform. Alcohol packaging captures the attention of and creates appeal among young peopleA new Stirling study has highlighted the impact alcohol packaging has on capturing the attention of and creating appeal among young people.50 current drinkers aged 18-35 participated in 8 focus groups, in which they were asked about a range of alcoholic products.Daniel Jones, the lead author, said:“Five main themes emerged from our data: the ubiquity of alcohol packaging; its appeal and ability to catch attention; its association with particular occasions and activities; its ability to inform perceptions; and its engagement of both visual and non-visual senses – taste, touch, sound and smell.”Notably, some participants reported purchasing alcohol products solely on pack appeal, with one saying: “I don’t actually like beer, but I bought it specifically because I liked the packaging”.Drinkers preferred exclusive-looking “limited edition” packaging over large price marks portraying the drink as value for money, as they felt value drinks were inferior. Most retained expensive or “cool” empty bottles for display or collection.Matt Lambert of the Portman Group said:“This study demonstrates that the packaging of a product is designed to appeal to different audiences, something that would ring true across all forms of marketing and is not in itself a surprise.”He added that the group's code of practice ensures alcohol is not marketed inappropriately and highlighted how adherence to the code had contributed to “over a decade of decline in underage drinking in Scotland”.Alcohol Toolkit Study: updateThe monthly data collected is from English households and began in March 2014.

I vårt moderna samhälle har döden alltmer flyttat in på sjukhuset, bort från de anhöriga. Döden har blivit "övermedikaliserad" menar forskare i en ny rapport. Hur kan vår sista tid bli en värdefull del av livet? Programmet är en repris från 31 maj 2022.Något har gått fel med hur vi dör och hur vi hanterar andras död i vårt moderna samhälle, enligt ledande forskare i en rapport från en kommission kopplad till tidskriften the Lancet. Och de som arbetar med vår sista tid i livet menar själva att yrkesmänniskorna har fått en alltför stor roll. Vi anhöriga och vår kärlek till den döende kan sägas ha fastnat i väntrummet, samtidigt som stora resurser går åt till avancerad vård som inte kan rädda patienten. Hur kan då den sista tiden i livet bli bättre för den som ska dö, för de anhöriga, och för samhället? - Det är viktigt att den sista delen av livet är just en del av livet! Många i samhället förknippar palliativ vård med döden, och tänker att inget finns att göra. Det är tvärtemot hur vi i den palliativa vården tänker och gör, där vi vill möjliggöra ett liv så länge som möjligt, säger Joakim Öhlén, expert på palliativ vård, alltså vård i livets slutskede.- Vi i Sverige har en attityd av OM vi dör som skapar en distans till döden, och ger en illusion av att det är vi som har kontroll över liv och död, säger Sara Möller, verksamhetschef på Bräcke hospice i Göteborg.Medverkande: Joakim Öhlén, professor i omvårdnad vid Sahlgrenska akademin, sjuksköterska på palliativt centrum på Sahlgrenska universitetssjukhuset och föreståndare för centrum för personcentrerad vård vid Göteborgs universitet; Libby Sallnow, forskare University college London Hospitals och Vrije Universiteit i Belgien, och medförfattare till Lancetkommissionens rapport On the value of death: bringing death back into life; Heather Richardson, St Christophers Hospice, London; Sara Möller, verksamhetschef på Bräcke hospice i Göteborg.Reporter: Sara Heyman, korrespondent för global hälsa sara.heyman@sr.seProducent: Björn Gunér bjorn.guner@sr.se

每日英語跟讀 Ep.K398: Omicron less likely to cause long COVID — UK study   The Omicron variant of coronavirus is less likely to cause long COVID than previous variants, according to the first peer-reviewed study of its kind from the UK. 英國一項研究顯示,冠狀病毒之Omicron變異株跟之前的變種相比,較不易導致「長新冠」後遺症。這是首件經同儕審查的此類研究。 Researchers at King's College London, using data from the ZOE COVID Symptom study app, found the odds of developing long COVID after infection were 20 percent to 50 percent lower during the Omicron wave in the UK compared to Delta. The figure varied depending on the patient's age and the timing of their last vaccination. 倫敦大學國王學院研究人員分析應用程式「ZOE新型冠狀病毒疾病症狀研究」之資料,發現與Delta變異株相比,在英國這波Omicron疫情期間,感染後發生COVID後遺症的機率低了百分之二十至百分之五十,數字因患者之年齡及上一次接種疫苗的時間而異。 Long COVID, which includes prolonged symptoms ranging from fatigue to “brain fog,” can be debilitating and continue for weeks or months. It is increasingly being recognized as a public health problem, and researchers have been racing to find out if Omicron presents as big a risk of long COVID as previously dominant variants. COVID後遺症包括從疲倦到「腦霧」的長期症狀,可使人虛弱,並持續數週或數月。它越來越被認為是公共衛生問題,研究人員一直在努力找出Omicron的後遺症風險是否跟先前的主要變異株一樣高。 The study from King's is believed to be the first academic research to show Omicron does not present as great a risk of long COVID, but that does not mean long COVID patient numbers are dropping, the team said. 國王學院研究小組表示,此研究據信為第一項表明Omicron的COVID後遺症風險並不如此高的學術研究,但這不表示COVID後遺症患者的人數正在下降。 While the risk of long COVID was lower during Omicron, more people were infected, so the absolute number now suffering is higher. 雖然感染Omicron後導致COVID後遺症的風險較低,但因Omicron的感染人數更多,所以現在苦於此後遺症的絕對人數更高。 “It's good news, but please don't decommission any of your long COVID services,” lead researcher Dr Claire Steves told Reuters, appealing to health-service providers. 「這是個好消息,但請不要停止對COVID後遺症的任何治療」,研究計畫主持人克萊兒‧史帝芙斯博士在接受路透社訪問時,對醫療業提出此呼籲。 The UK's Office for National Statistics said in May that 438,000 people in the country have long COVID after Omicron infection, representing 24 percent of all long COVID patients. 英國國家統計局在五月表示,有四十三萬八千人在感染Omicron後患有COVID後遺症,佔英國所有COVID後遺症患者的百分之二十四。 It also said the risk of lingering symptoms after Omicron was lower than with Delta, but only for double-vaccinated people. It found no statistical difference for those who were triple vaccinated. 它還表示,感染Omicron後有持續症狀的風險低於感染Delta,但這只是對接種兩劑疫苗的人而言,而接種三劑疫苗的人在統計上並無差異。 In the King's research, 4.5 percent of the 56,003 people studied during Omicron's peak, December 2021-March 2022, reported long COVID. That compared to 10.8 percent of 41,361 people during the Delta wave, June-November 2021. It did not compare vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. 國王學院在二○二一年十二月至二○二二年三月Omicron疫情高峰期間所研究的五萬六千零三人中,有百分之四點五的人表示有COVID後遺症。而在二○二一年六月至十一月的Delta變異株疫情期間所研究的四萬一千三百六十一人,有COVID後遺症的比例則為百分之十點八。此研究並未對疫苗接種者及未接種者做比較。 While the study — published in The Lancet journal on Thursday last week — compared Delta and Omicron, Dr Steves said previous work had showed no substantial difference in long COVID risk between other variants.More work was needed to establish why Omicron may have a lower long COVID risk, the team added. 雖然這項上週四發表於《刺胳針》期刊的研究比較了Delta及Omicron變異株的情況,但史帝芙斯博士表示,先前的研究顯示,其他變異株之間的COVID後遺症風險並無實質差異。 該研究小組補充說,Omicron的COVID後遺症風險可能較低之原因,需要做更多研究才能確定。Source article: https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang/archives/2022/06/28/2003780674

THE THESIS: The Covid response Hoax is key to the Forever-Crisis The Party will use to install unfettered powers.  THE SCRIPTURE & SCRIPTURAL RESOURCES:  List Of 365 Fear Not Bible Verses THE NEWS & COMMENT: Dr. Zev Vladimir Zelenko's statement by Dr. Paul Elias Alexander on his death, in praise and recognition of a true hero, angel, and patriot; he had a place in the world to save lives and he did it! Letter to the U.K. Gov from 76 Doctors; Comprehensive reasons why the U.S. FDA decision authorizing COVID vaccinations in infants and young children must not happen in the UK. [AUDIO] - Two teenage boys from different states died in their sleep due to the second shot of Pfizer vaccine they had received a few days back. [AUDIO] - Fed's Jerome Powell blames Americans not getting vaccinated enough for his inflation crisis Here's former Surgeon General, Jerome Adams showing his boastful pride in the letters by his name as he is corrected, first by a Mom and, second--in defense of Adam's attack on that Mom--by Dr. Martin Kulldorff. As a Harvard professor I analyzed vaccine data for two decades and helped develop CDC's vaccine safety system. It's illuminating to realize that @KelleyKga, a mother with no science degree, understands epidemiological data better than former surgeon general @JeromeAdamsMD. Dr. Paul Alexander: “Portugal EU country highest vaccination rate; today has the most new Covid-19 cases; with most new daily deaths per million inhabitants; the COVID injection did not work, never worked, killing people; I argue the COVID injections never ever worked! The COVID injections are driving infectiousness of the omicron sub-variant; vaccinated getting severely infected, hospitalized and even death.” Here's what the Washington Post published about Portugal and the mRNA injections on 9-30-2021: Portugal has nearly run out of people to vaccinate. What comes next? Portugal's feat has turned the country into a cutting-edge pandemic laboratory — a place where otherwise-hypothetical questions about the coronavirus endgame can begin to play out. Chief among them is how fully a nation can bring the virus under control when vaccination rates are about as high as they can go.  The emerging answer is promising — mostly. In Portugal, every indicator of pandemic severity is quickly trending downward. The death rate is half the European Union average and nine times below that of the United States. Lisbon is triumphant: a city of live music and partying, where early-risers might find sidewalks still sticky with beer. Traffic is back to normal as people settle into the rhythms of commuting to work. And the celebrity of the moment — on glossy magazine covers — is the former submarine commander who led the country's vaccination drive. But Portugal's experience is also providing a note of caution: a reminder that 1½ years into this pandemic, the current tools of science still might not be enough. The virus is still causing cancellations, lost work days and sickness — in rare cases severe. It spreads less quickly and less far than it would in places with lower vaccination rates — which benefits everyone, including the 12-and-under children not yet eligible for shots. But herd immunity remains elusive. Daily calculations about risk remain, even without large ranks of unvaccinated people to blame. [AUDIO] - EU warns boosters may destroy immune system Dictator, Jay Inslee is requiring state workers in executive and small cabinets to get a COVID-19 booster shot as condition of employment. All state workers will be next. Not content with mandating masks on toddlers, enforcing discriminatory vaccine passports and his remarkable hypocrisy, the mayor of New York announced he will be mandating vaccines for children to attend school this fall. Dr. Paul Alexander: Australia, oh Australia, what is happening there July 1st 2022? Escalating infections, escalating deaths, 85-90% vaccinated!!! We told you idiots, stop the COVID injection, it is driving infection! Australia is talking masks again...they will not listen to Geert, or Yeadon, or Bridle, or I, yet they do not yet understand it is the virus-host ecosystem that is driving this; China, et tu? Et tu? [AUDIO - PAUSE] -  Working-Age Folks Disappearing Out of Nowhere: You Can't Blame This on COVID or Missed Cancer Screenings  -- Ed Dowd: You can't tell me the virus switched from only going after older folks to now going after younger folks and switching from respiratory to cardiovascular."

I'm pretty convinced it came out of a US lab of biotechnology [...] We don't know for sure but there is enough evidence. [However] it's not being investigated, not in the US, not anywhere."

Pim Van Lommel MD - A NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE STUDY

Chasing Consciousness

Can we have conscious experiences after clinical death? In this episode we have the bizarre phenomena of Near Death Experiences to examine. The intense experience reported by about %25 of patients whose hearts are restarted after a short time of clinical death, has fascinated researchers for many years going right back to Plato. However, advances in cardiology techniques in the last 50 years have permitted doctors to save many more people, and thus to study the phenomenon in a controlled manner: so, exactly how many people have the experiences, exactly how dead they were at the time and so to start assessing the controversial part of this discussion, whether these experiences can be explained in simply neurobiological terms or if there is evidence that consciousness can ‘survive' clinical death, if that is in fact the best way to talk about it. So who better to help us understand this than cardiologist, scientist and author Dr. Pim Van Lommel from The Netherlands. During his 35 year career as a Cardiologist, Dr. Van Lommel saw the need for a detailed study on this to nail down the physiological variables like medication, length of time without oxygen and to connect those to the psychological data, about the content of the experiences and how long they remained influential in the patients lives. The prospective study he spearheaded was published in the respected Lancet medical journal in 2001, and his book about the research ‘Consciousness beyond life, the science of the near death experience' was published in 2007. He also recently won second prize in the Bigelow Foundation for consciousness studies essay prize, which discusses the study and its implications.

One in four adults is physically inactive according to a global health study published in the Lancet a few years ago. That's an enormous number. It doesn't take much research or imagination to figure out that this leads directly to poorer health outcomes – and just a lower quality of life in general. Our bodies need to move for our physical and mental wellbeing. Dave Stapleton, our guest today, is working to solve this problem. Dave played semi-pro rugby in Ireland and then moved to London to work in finance. Because of his years on the field, he prefers outdoor fitness classes. He was taking part in these various bootcamps and high intensity training sessions around London when he realized two things. The first was that outdoor training was more accessible to the people who needed it most. People who feared the judgment or complexity of a gym seemed to see outdoor classes as an entry point to fitness. The second was that the outdoor fitness market was incredibly fractured and disorganized. So Dave did what great entrepreneurs do. He dove deep into market research, found like-minded collaborators, and began to build. The platform he created, BUA FIT, just celebrated facilitating its one millionth engagement, so we wanted to get Dave on the phone from London and hear more about how their journey has played out since StartUp Health invested in the company last year.     Learn more and connect with the team at BUA FIT.
