For the podcast this week, we discuss an article which outlines the Lancet's recent change on the origin of the Covid-19 virus. It now believes it's okay to discuss the lab leak theory. This theory states that the Covid virus was man made and was leaked from a lab in China. We chose this article specifically to talk about censorship in the scientific community and to talk about who “fact checks” the fact checkers. This is extremely important because in order for the scientific community to make any real differences, it has to be able to challenge the current dogma without fear of being “canceled” or dismissed as a conspiracy theorist. But, the current academic climate doesn't allow any opinions that aren't in line with the popular narrative to gain any traction, even if that opinion is backed up with strong science. To learn more about why this current climate is causing issues and why the “fact checkers” need to be checked themselves, listen to this week's podcast.

Episode 70: HIV Prevention. Prevention is key in controlling HIV-AIDS. Listen to ways to prevent HIV, mainly by using condoms, PrEP and PEP.Introduction: HIV and AIDSBy Robert Dunn, MS3.Introduction: The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a retrovirus that is primarily transmitted via sex, needles or from mother to fetus. Once infected, the virus increases in its copies and decreases the individual's CD4+ cell count, thus leading to an immunocompromised state known as Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). Once with AIDS, the patient is susceptible to opportunistic infections. Prevention from AIDS includes several options. Condoms for safe sex practices are the least invasive and most readily accessible option for all patients. Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is also an option for men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender women. If the patient is also exposed to HIV, post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) may also be an option to prevent infection but must be administer ideally 1-2 hours after exposure but no later than 72 hours after. Today we will briefly discuss how to prevent HIV infection.This is Rio Bravo qWeek, your weekly dose of knowledge brought to you by the Rio Bravo Family Medicine Residency Program from Bakersfield, California. Our program is affiliated with UCLA, and it's sponsored by Clinica Sierra Vista, Let Us Be Your Healthcare Home.___________________________HIV Series IV: HIV Prevention. By Robert Dunn, MS3.Participation by Huda Quanungo, MS3; Bahar Hamidi, MS3; and Hector Arreaza, MD.  HIV PreventionIntroductionThe Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a retrovirus that is primarily transmitted via sex, needles or from mother to fetus. Once infected, the virus increases in its copies and decreases the individual's CD4+ cell count, thus leading to an immunocompromised state known as Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). Once with AIDS, the patient is susceptible to opportunistic infections. Prevention from AIDS includes several options. Condoms for safe sex practices are the least invasive and most readily accessible option for all patients. Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is also an option for men who have sex with men (MSM) and transgender women. If the patient is also exposed to HIV, post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) may also be an option to prevent infection, but it must be administered ideally 1-2 hours after exposure but no later than 72 hours after. We will concentrate in prevention during this episode.   What is HIV?The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is a retrovirus. When the virus gains access to our body via cuts on the skin or mucosa:The virus injects its 10kb sized RNA genome into our cells. The RNA is transcribed to DNA via viral reverse transcriptase and is incorporated into our cellular DNA genome. This causes our cells to become a virus producer. Viral proteins translated in the cell are transported to the edge of the cell and can bud off into new viruses without lysing the cell.  Acute HIV symptoms. Some potential early symptoms of HIV can include fever, chills, rash, night sweats, muscle aches, sore throat, fatigue, lymphadenopathy, and mouth ulcers. The most common acute symptom is NO SYMPTOM. Many people do not feel sick with the acute infection of HIV. Some people can live years with HIV in “clinical latency” without knowing they are infected, but they can still be contagious during this time. As viral load (the amount of virus copies you have in your blood stream) increases, the CD4+ cells that contribute to our adaptive immunity continues to fall. That's why the best test during this period is not going to be HIV antibody but you should test for antigens. Specifically, the 4th Generation HIV test, which tests for both antibody and p24 antigens.Chronic symptoms. Once patients begin to present with opportunistic infections (i.e. Pneumocystis pneumonia – PCP), or have a CD4 count below 200, the patient is considered to have Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and makes them susceptible to more serious infections. Without treatment, patients with AIDS typically survive about 3 years. Epidemiology of HIVHIV incidence: In 2019, there were 34,800 new HIV infections in the United States. This is an 8% decline from 2015. Amongst age groups: Age 25-34 had the highest rate of incidence (30.1 per 100,000)Age 35-44 had the second highest rate (16.5 per 100,000)Age 45-54 remained stableAge 13-24 had decreasing rates of incidence Amongst ethnic groups: Black/African-American groups has the highest rate of incidence (42.1 per 100,000)Hispanic/Latino had the second highest rate (21.7 per 100,000)Person of multiple races had the third highest (18.4 per 100,000) Amongst sex: Males had the highest rate of incidence (21 per 100,000)Females had the lowest rate of incidence (4.5 per 100,000) HIV Prevalence:In 2019, 1.2 million people (Ages 13 and older) in the US have HIV and 13% of them do not even know it. In 2020, there were an estimated 1.5 million people worldwide that acquired a new HIV infection. This is a 30% decline since 2020. An estimated 66% are receiving some HIV care and 57% were virally suppressed. Mortality: In 2019, there were 15,815 deaths among adults and adolescents diagnosed with HIV in the US. Preventative ScreeningThe USPSTF gives a Grade A recommendation for HIV screening for: Pregnant people and everyone between 15-65 years of age. All pregnant people at any point of their pregnancy, including those who present in labor or delivery and have an unknown status of HIV.The USPSTF only recommends a one-time screening and shows no benefit of repeat screening thereafter. Women may also be screened for subsequent pregnanciesAlso screen all Adolescents and adults ages 15-65.  An effective approach is routine opt-out HIV screening. This approach includes HIV screening as part of the standard preventive tests. This approach removes the stigma associated with HIV testing, it promotes earlier diagnosis and treatment, reduces risk of transmission, and it is cost-effective. The determination for repeated screening of individuals should take into account the following risk factors: -Men who have sex with men (MSM)-Individuals who live in areas with high prevalence of HIVIncluding attending to tuberculosis clinics, stay in a correctional facility, or homelessness-Injection drug use-Transactional/commercial sex work-1 or more new sexual partners -History of previous STIs Annual screening for HIV is reasonable, however, clinicians may want to screen patients every 3-6 months if they have an increased risk of HIV.  CondomsA simple and very effective method in HIV prevention is the use of condoms for safe sex practices. In 2009, the American College of Physicians (ACP) and the HIV medicine Association called for the wider availability of condoms and education to minimize HIV transmission. A meta-analysis of 12 HIV studies amongst heterosexual couples demonstrated the use of condoms in all penetrative sex acts reduced the risk of HIV transmission 7.4 times in comparison to those who never used condoms. Other studies show a 90-95% effectiveness in HIV prevention when “consistently” using condoms. A Cochrane review shoed that the use of a male latex condom in all acts of penetrative vaginal sex reduced HIV incidence by 80%. Overall, condoms are effective in HIV prevention.Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP)Truvada and Descovy:Another option for prevention amongst HIV negative individuals is the use of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP). It is an anti-retroviral pill that is taken daily to maintain a steady-state level of the medication in the blood stream. The medication specifically a combination of 2 antiretroviral medications – Tenofovir and Emtricitabine. Both medications are nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) that work by blocking the viral reverse transcriptase from HIV and prevent the enzyme from copying the RNA genome into DNA. Therefore, it stops viral replications. There are 2 formulations of PrEP: Truvada and Descovy. Truvada's primary side effects are renal and bone toxicity with long-term use. Descovy's primary side effects are mild weight gain and dyslipidemia. Truvada is the most commonly prescribed PrEP because it has the most data since it has been around the longest. However, extra consideration should be taken for: Adolescents should weigh at least 35 kg before being prescribed PrEPDescovy may be preferred for adolescents by the prescribing physician as it is not associated with reduction in bone density, as Truvada is. Estimated GFR between 30 – 60Truvada is associated with acute and chronic kidney disease whereas Descovy is safe for patients with a GFR greater than 30Patients with osteoporosisTruvada is associated with bone toxicity, whereas Descovy is not. It is important to note that PrEP has only been studied in men or people who were assigned men at birth. So, its efficacy in vaginal sex and with vaginal fluids cannot be generalized at this time. Future of PrEP: In May 2020, the HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) 083 randomized trial demonstrated the potential of an injectable PrEP. Carbotegravir, is an integrase inhibitor, which prevents the HIV integrase from incorporating the HIV genome into the cellular genome. This study demonstrated its efficacy as PrEP in comparison to Truvada with few new infections (13 versus 39, respectively). Carbotegravir would be given via injection once every 8 weeks. In September 2021, the pharmaceutical company Moderna will begin 2 human clinical trials for an HIV vaccine that use mRNA technology. Previous studies conducted with non-mRNA vaccines demonstrated that B cells can be stimulated to create antibodies against HIV. Since HIV becomes integrated in the cellular genome within 72 hours of transmission, a high level of antibodies must be produced and present in the body to offer an adequate level of immunity. Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP)If an individual is exposed to blood or bodily fluids with high risk of HIV via percutaneous, mucus membrane or nonintact skin route, post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) may be an option. PEP is indicated when the HIV status of the exposure source is unknown and are awaiting test results, or if the exposure source is HIV positive. Therapy should be started within 1 or 2 hours of exposure and it is not effective after 72 hours of initial exposure. The recommended duration of therapy is 4 weeks but no evidence has been shown for an optimal duration. Occupational exposure. There are 2 regimens for PEP: Truvada with Dolutegravir Truvada  with Raltegravir Both Doltegravir and Raltegravir are integrase inhibitors which block the integration of the viral genome into the cellular DNA. The regiments are chosen based on efficacy, side effects, patient convenience, and completion rates. Dolutegravir is chosen because it is given once daily. While Raltegravir is taken twice daily, most experience with PEP has been with Raltegravir. Other risk with Raltegravir are potential skeletal muscle toxicity and systemic-cutaneous reactions resembling Steven-Johnson syndrome. One final word about prevention of vertical transmission is making sure pregnant women are treated during pregnancy and if the baby is delivered from a patient whose viral load is “detectable”, the baby needs to be treated, but we'll let that topic for another time to discuss. Joke: What do you call the patient zero of HIV? First Aids.HIV incidence is decreasing thanks to many prevention measures taken globally, and we discussed screening, condoms, PrEP and PEP as part of this prevention efforts. Stay tuned for more relevant medical information in our next episode. ____ Now we conclude our episode number 70 “HIV Prevention.” Robert, Huda and Bahar explained some ways to prevent HIV, mainly by screening those at risk, using condoms, PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) and PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis). Let's also remember that having a monogamous relationship and avoiding high risk sexual behaviors confer significant protection against HIV. Even without trying, every night you go to bed being a little wiser.Thanks for listening to Rio Bravo qWeek.

The Government Assault Against Ivermectin and other Safe SARS-2 Treatments    Richard Gale and Gary Null PhD Progressive Radio Network, September 1, 2021     Had the FDA and Anthony Fauci's National Institute for Allergies and Infectious Disease (NIAID) started approving existing clinically-proven and inexpensive drugs for treating malaria, parasites and other pathogens at the start of the pandemic, millions of people would have been saved from experiencing serious infections or dying from the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Why federal health officials never followed this strategy is a question the mainstream media refuses to ask.    Another question that the medical establishment, let alone our compliant media, is why have they failed to ask whether there are reliable studies in the peer-reviewed literature and testimonies from thousands of day-to-day clinical physicians worldwide who treat Covid-19 patients with these drugs, in particular hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) and Ivermectin. We may also point out the many different natural remedies, such as nigella sativa, curcumin, vitamin D, melatonin, etc, which have been shown to be effective against SARS-2 infections. In most nations, there has been enormous success in treating Covid patients at the early and moderate stages of infection. However, in the US, Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates, the FDA and our federal medical officials have categorically denied their use.  In fact during the past couple weeks, there has been an aggressive and concerted effort to erect obstacles to prevent the employment of these more effective drugs. More recently a widespread campaign is underway to denigrate them altogether.   For example, the TOGETHER trial is now touted by the mainstream media as a flagship study showing that ivermectin is ineffective and even dangerous to prescribe. The study was conducted by professor Edward Mills at McMaster University in Ontario. If we are to believe the New York Times, the trial, which enrolled 1,300 patients, was discontinued because Mills claimed the drug was no better than a placebo. However, there is strong reason to believe this entire trial was nothing less than a staged theatrical performance. When asked, Mills denied having any conflict of interests.  However, Mills happens to be employed as a clinical trial advisor for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  The Gates Foundation was also the trial's principal funder.  It may be noted that various organizations and agencies in other nations, such as the Health Products Regulatory Authority in South Africa, which have banned ivermectin, are often funded by Gates. It is naïve to believe that Gates has any philanthropic intentions whatsoever to see a highly effective treatment for SARS-2 infections reach worldwide approval. These drugs are in direct competition to his enormous investments and unwavering commitment to the Covid-19 vaccines.   In the meantime, Americans only have monoclonal antibody therapy and the controversial and ineffective drug Remdesivir at their disposal. Remdesivir's average effectiveness for late stage treatment is only 22 percent.  A Chinese study published in The Lancet found no statistically significant benefit in the drug and 12 percent of participants taking the drug had to discontinue treatment due to serious adverse effects, especially liver and kidney damage.    When questions are posited as a general argument for advocating expedient measures to protect public health during this pandemic, would it not have been wise to have prioritized for emergency use HCQ, Ivermectin, and other remedies with a record of curtailing Covid, such as the antibiotic azithromycin, zinc, selenium, Vitamins C and D, and melatonin as a first line of defense?  There was absolutely no need to have waited for experimental vaccines or experimental drugs such as Remdesivir before the pandemic became uncontrollable.  But this is what Fauci and Trump, and now Biden, permitted to happen.   If this strategy of medical intervention had been followed, would it have been successful?  The answer is likely an unequivocal “yes”.  Both HCQ and, even better, Ivermectin have been prophylactically prescribed by physicians working on pandemic's front lines with enormous success.  Yet those American physicians struggling to get this urgent message out to federal health officials are being marginalized and ridiculed en masse. Only in the US, the UK, France, South Africa and several other developed nations has there been a stubborn hubris to deny their effectiveness. The World Health Organization recommends Ivermectin for Covid-19 so why not the US and these other nations? Under oath, multiple physicians and professors at American medical schools have testified before Congress to present the scientific evidence supporting HCQ and Ivermectin.  These are otherwise medical professionals at the very heart of treating Covid-19 patients.    Today, American journalism is in shambles. In fact, it is a disgrace.  The American public is losing trust in the media. Whether it is CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the liberal tabloid Daily Beast, NPR or PBS, each has unlimited resources to properly investigate the federal and institutional machinery behind the government health policies being thrust upon us.  Yet no mainstream journalist has found the moral compass to bring this truth to the public.    In the meantime, we are allowing millions to die, and countless others to be seriously affected from a severe infection because of professional medical neglect and a healthcare system favoring the pharmaceutical industry's frantic rush to develop expensive novel drugs and experimental vaccines. The incentive by the drug makers is to take every advantage available within the FDA's emergency use loopholes to get their products approved as quickly as possible.  The primary advantage is that these novel drugs and vaccines can then leap over regulatory hurdles, which otherwise would require them to conduct lengthy and thorough clinical trials to prove their efficacy and safety. The consequence is that none of the new pharmaceutical Covid-19 interventions have been adequately reviewed.   On the other hand, HCQ and Ivermectin have an established legacy of prior research and have been on the market for decades. Worldwide, it is not unreasonable to claim that billions of people have been treated with these drugs.     Below is a breakdown of the studies conducted so far for HCQ, Ivermectin and Vitamin D specifically for combatting the SARS-CoV-2 virus   Hydroxychloroquine   344 studies, 250 peer-reviewed have been conducted specifically for Covid-19 281 have been clinical trials that involved 4,583 scientists and over 407,627 patients 64% improvement in 31 early treatment trials 75% improvement in 13 early stage infection treatment mortality results 21% improvement in 190 late stage infection treatment trials (patients in serious condition) 23% improvement in 44 randomized controlled trials Full list of HCQ studies and details:  https://c19hcq.com   Ivermectin    131 studies, 52 peer-reviewed have been conducted specifically for Covid-19 63 have been clinical trials that involved 613 scientists and over 26,398 patients 58% improvement in 31 randomized controlled trials  86% improvement in 14 prophylaxis trials 72% improvement in 27 early stage infection treatment trials 40% improvement in 22 late stage infection treatment trials 58% improvement in 25 mortality results Full list of Ivermectin studies and details:  https://c19ivermectin.com   Other inexpensive repurposed drugs for treating SARS-2   Fluvoxamine   88% improvement in early treatment 29% improvement in late stage treatment 63% improvement in all 7 peer-reviewed studies   Vitamin D   101 studies conducted by over 875 scientists 63 sufficiency studies with 34,863 patients 33 treatment trials with 46,860 patients 42% improvement in 33 treatment trials 56% improvement in 68 sufficiency studies 55% improvement in 19 treatment mortality results Full list of Vitamin D studies and details:  https://c19vitamind.com   In contrast there have been 21 studies enrolling 35,744 patients in Remdesivir trials showing only a 22% improvement in all studies combined. This rate is below that of simply taking probiotics (5 studies at 24% improvement), melatonin (7 studies at 62% improvement), curcumin (4 studies at 71% improvement), nigella sativa (3 studies at 84% improvement), quercetin (4 studies at 76% improvement), and aspirin (7 studies at 37% improvement).  Despite the small number of trials and low numbers of enrolled participants, early results indicate that greater attention and funding needs to be allocated for more rigorous research if there is to be any success in curbing SARS-2 infections' severity.   Please share this information. The inept policies and measures being taken by our federal health officials and by both the former Trump and present Biden administrations are unparalleled in American healthcare history. And never before has the media been so willing to self-censor and been so grossly irresponsible to hide the published science and the truth.

What is it, really —this so-called upright sitting?It's your everything.* * *Possibly the briefest of all of Master Dogen's written teachings, Zazenshin is his rewrite of a poem he found in China, as was his initial tract on the principles of seated meditation, Fukanzazengi. The title means something like “Acupuncture Needle for Zazen,” or the shorter “Lancet of Zazen” I have chosen. Something sharp, in other words, that can cut or penetrate to the heart of the matter. In this case, the “Great Matter,” as it is called. In Japan in 1987, I had the good fortune to have acupuncture — needles, electricity and all — performed upon my back. As our Japanese host promised, it made me feel “light.”The essential-function of buddhas, and the functioning-essence of ancestors; Being actualized within non-thinking; Being manifested within non-interacting.Here again, as in the last segment where we covered his Vow, Dogen never mentions it — zazen — even once. But we all know what he is talking about. It — zazen — is the essential function of all buddhas of past, future, and present. You might suggest that their function is to teach Buddhism, to transmit the dharma to the great unwashed masses. But the singular, effective, and only way to do so is through zazen. Not only do they need to impress upon others the central need for them to practice this “excellent method,” as Master Dogen refers to it, but they need to do it themselves, before they can have any idea of why others must be encouraged to sit, or to have any street cred for promoting the practice. It is what buddhas do. It is how buddhas become buddha, awakened. Otherwise, no buddhas.How this comes about is that it begins with “non-thinking.” We return to our natural state of non-thinking, that is. There is nothing automatic about thinking. It has to be learned, just like language. But long before we learn to think, we are already fully conscious. Consciousness does not rely on thinking. Thinking may come and go, but it is not fundamental to awareness. It doesn't hurt, but it can get in the way of direct intuition. We can think that something is real when it is not, for example, and that what is real, is not. We can tell when we are thinking, or when we have been, for a minute. And we can tell when we have not, just the moment before. As soon as we recognize this, of course, we are back to thinking. Non-thinking is neither thinking nor not-thinking. It is that awareness that can be aware of thinking, but is not dependent upon it. It can also be aware of non-thinking, without having to think about it. But simply returning to a childlike state of non-thinking awareness is not Zen's comprehensive insight.Insight into deeper levels of reality — the nondual side of things — is broadly considered the “effect” of meditation, one of many, but cannot be attributed to meditation as its cause, as in linear causality. It is difficult, but not impossible, for individuals to experience profound insight without the prerequisite of zazen. Sixth ancestor in China, Huineng, is the standout historical exemplar of this phenomenon. Most of us have to spend considerable time in zazen, just to cut through the clutter of our own opinions about it. It being zazen, and everything else we might think about reality.This insight is not manifested simply in non-thinking, however. According to Dogen, it manifests in “non-interacting.” A line from one of the Ch'an poems we have examined claims that “All the senses interact and do not interact; interacting they are linked together; non-interacting, each keeps its place.” We look at them as a Venn diagram, overlapping, as in synesthesia. If we come to experience non-thinking as our new normal, intellectual state of mind, we can begin to apprehend non-interacting as an even deeper, intuitive state of merging of the senses, and all that that entails for consciousness itself. If non-thinking, or the embrace of it, is a prerequisite, then non-interacting in general, i.e. in the sensory realm, can be conceived as the next level down the rabbit-hole. This investigation can be understood as a kind of deep and all-inclusive process of profound sensory adaptation. Sitting still enough for long enough, everything adapts, or neutralizes. This is non-interacting on a granular level, so to speak.Being actualized within non-thinking, the actualization is by nature intimate. Being manifested within non-interacting, the manifestation is itself verification.Master Dogen further unfolds the last two lines of the prior stanza, like flower petals opening to reveal the interior of the blossom. If we can accept that it — zazen and its effect — is most naturally actualized within this primordial state of non-thinking, then we can further embrace the idea that this revelation is by nature “intimate.” Here Dogen means, as usual for him, intimate in both temporal and spatial modes. That is, we are awakening to what we already are — nothing is changing — but it is so close in time and space, like the water to the fish, that we cannot really share it with anyone else. We cannot even separate our “self” from “it.” This is Uchiyama Roshi's “Self selfing self,” Okumura Roshi's translation.When we penetrate to the depths of consciousness itself, encountering the stillness that resides at the heart of motion there, the non-interacting manifested therein is itself the verification of our exploration. We have discovered the Original Frontier™ of mind that Buddha pioneered 2500 years ago. We have found the territory for which Dogen is laying out the map.The actualization that is by nature intimate never has defilement. The manifestation that is by nature verification never has distinction between Absolute and Relative.It becomes clear that this new landscape has never been defiled, and cannot be reduced to ordinary understanding, Zen's special meaning of defilement. In it, we verify that there has never been any distinction between absolute and relative, a hallmark of the world of linear logic we have left far behind.The Intimacy without defilement is dropping off without relying on anything. Verification beyond distinction between Absolute and Relative is making effort without aiming at it.Again unfolding the deeper meaning of the prior lines, Dogen reveals that this personal insight, one that cannot be shared with others, nor reduced to common understanding, is experienced as the “dropping off” of the imputed body-mind of one's self, as well as of that of others, as we first encountered in his Genjokoan. This cannot be done intentionally, and can happen only in a context of not “relying on anything,” i.e. not being able to rely upon the usual tricks and dodges we employ in confronting the various vagaries and vicissitudes of daily life. All such gimmicks must be left behind at this remove, on the cushion.This verification, in which absolute and relative truths find no foothold — and that, again, can occur, but we cannot force it — is reduced to simply making effort without aiming at it, again, on the cushion. We continue to make effort as in the beginning of our meditation, when as a novice, the physical world of form, the body and its resistance to sitting still for long, was the first barrier. Then, as the posture became comfortable, emotional and mental distress may have set in, perhaps accompanied by the social stressors of family and friends who do not meditate, and do not understand why we do. When we run out of explanations, even to ourselves, we still have no choice but to continue. We are no longer aiming at anything that we can articulate, but we are still making the effort. It is not rational at this point.The water is clear to the earth — a fish is swimming like a fish. The sky is vast and extends to the heavens — a bird is flying like a bird.But like a refreshing, cool breeze, or a summer rain on a hot day, Master Dogen assures us that all is well. Zazen should be the comfortable way, the posture more like a refreshing stretch, and the breath like a sigh of relief. This is perfectly natural, like a fish swimming like a fish, or a bird flying like a bird. We are just sitting, like a person sitting. The water becomes clear, and the sky vast, extending to the heavens. The “vast emptiness, nothing holy” of Bodhidharma's expression of spiritual truth to emperor Wu opens up before us. When we are asked why we do what we do, i.e. zazen — or even who it is answering the question — we can honestly say, with Bodhidharma and Dogen, and with a sense of putting our burden down, “Don't know.” Nobody really knows, not even Buddha.* * *Elliston Roshi is guiding teacher of the Atlanta Soto Zen Center and abbot of the Silent Thunder Order.

There is a study reported by the medical journal The Lancet about the increase in levels of anxiety and depression during the pandemic.  The first sentence in the report got me thinking.  Mental disorders are among the leading causes of the global health-related burden I have to look up the meaning of burden because I've never thought of my anxiety as a burden. A thorn, a pain in the ass, or at best, this thing that I have but not a burden. It has two meanings. a load, typically a heavy one. Or the main theme or gist of a speech, book, or argument.   The Lancet is a UK publication and I'm an American bringing other meaning to the words used to describe mental health issues.   At first, I took it as the world was burdened with people who have a mental health condition. Then I thought, maybe they mean the people that have a mental health condition that have the burden?   I might be wrong about this, but I think this is the UK's English way of expressing a thesis statement.    In this episode, a definition of depression and negative talk (or cognitive dissonance) symptoms when it comes to depression.   Negative talk symptom isn't the opposite of so-called happy or positive thoughts. It is a pattern of thinking that is designed to invalidate the worth of a person or their value to other people.

You might have noticed there's been a bit of talk recently about a certain virus. A virus that may or may not have a vaccine that is very safe and effective, that may or may not be curable via hydroxychloroquine, vitamin D and ivermectin. That may or may not have escaped from a certain Chinese lab.... Yes folks, we're talking about SARS CoV-2. And although it's technically not directly guru-related, these are topics that have sucked so many of our gurus in like a conceptual black hole. So, we were particularly happy that Dr. Stuart Neil was willing to talk to us and sort this stuff out. Stuart is a Professor of Virology at King's College London. He's a specialist in virus cell biology and immunology, antiviral restriction, and has studied HIV, Ebola, and most recently COVID. Stuart is passionate about helping to inform the public about the state of scientific knowledge on COVID, and is known for his many excellent twitter threads helping to provide summaries and combat the misinformation and conspiracy theories that surround these topics. In this episode, Stuart gives a nuanced and crystal clear summary of where the evidence is pointing on these COVID-related topics. Stuart's frank about what we do and we do not know on these topics. And with Matt and Chris, there's interesting discussions about the controversies surrounding THAT letter to the Lancet, how scientific publishing works, and how the 'scientific consensus' develops in a politically charged and highly dynamic situation.

In his recently released special, “The Closer,” comedian Dave Chappelle made the bold statement that gender is a fact, drawing the ire of social media and trans activists. Much to the chagrin of the people calling him out, Chappelle stood by his comments during a show at the Hollywood Bowl Thursday night, even reveling in the outrage of the obnoxious clowns pushing back against the comedian. The country should take note and follow the Mark Twain award recipient's lead in calling these idiots out and defiantly standing against their lunacy. On top of that, the Lancet, a leading medical journal, received backlash after calling women “bodies with vaginas.” Their editor issued an apology shortly after, proving that these people will cave if they receive pushback. The University of Colorado Hospital system denied a woman's lifesaving kidney transplant because she was unvaccinated. There is no length these people won't go to so that their narrative remains in place and no depth they won't sink to to punish anyone opposing them. This is no longer about science — if it ever was; it's about control of your life and apparently also your death.

A recently released poll revealed more than 40% of Biden voters support splitting the country and more than half of Trump voters supporting the split.

The COVID craziness in Canada is continuing to escalate with one mother being arrested in front of her crying children because she didn't have her COVID passport. Is the real criminal the mother or the police state enforcers carrying out these unjust acts? Speaking of the unjust, Gladys Berejiklian, the New South Wales premier, resigned over an anti-corruption probe. Interestingly, Australia just announced it is ending the travel ban in a pivot to living with COVID-19. Unfortunately, that only applies to people who are vaccinated while the unvaccinated will still be forced to isolate. Victorian Premier Dan Andrews announced every authorized worker needed to be vaccinated by Oct.15 to continue working. The question now becomes, will the Australian people comply? The lunatics of the Left continue their destruction of womanhood with the Lancet calling women "bodies with vaginas."

Show notes/Links: Full, correct context for Daniel Lavery criticizing someone for reporting a home break-in: https://www.reddit.com/r/DearPrudence/comments/lzge8x/comment/gqdp0vz (https://www.reddit.com/r/DearPrudence/comments/lzge8x/comment/gqdp0vz) Troubled Daily Beast piece about Carson Griffith: https://www.thedailybeast.com/gawker-writers-quit-over-editorial-director-carson-griffiths-offensive-tweets-workplace-comments (https://www.thedailybeast.com/gawker-writers-quit-over-editorial-director-carson-griffiths-offensive-tweets-workplace-comments) The articles notes in its subhed: “The new site's only two full-time writers exited Wednesday in protest of editorial director Carson Griffith's offensive remarks about everything from race to penis size.” There is no subsequent explanation of the claim that Griffith made an “offensive remark” about penis size — instead, she forwarded an email thread in which other people were joking about someone's penis size, but which also contained information pertinent to a potential story idea. Tani writes: “Kosoff additionally told HR of an exchange in which Griffith took a dismissive stance towards the recruiting of a writer who identifies as non-binary. Kosoff, who was tasked with recruiting some new editorial staff, wrote in a Slack message that she was going to meet with a potential staffer ‘who is a person of color and nonbinary (uses they/them pronouns).' When she returned from the meeting two hours later, Griffith initially laughed off the preferred pronouns. ‘lol is [name redacted] a girl?' Griffith asked.” But Slack logs included in Griffith's complaint show that when Griffith said that, it wasn't in the context of responding to this individual being nonbinary, but was rather simply a question about their sex/pronouns: https://postimg.cc/yJwcRZ6k (https://postimg.cc/yJwcRZ6k) Now, this screenshot doesn't include the mention of “who is a person of color and nonbinary (uses they/them pronouns),” so it's unclear when that was said. But there's no evidence, within this excerpt, of Griffith responding directly to the applicant being nonbinary. Tani writes: “The two reporters also relayed to human-resources instances in which they believed Griffith—who holds a management role at the site—expressed an uncomfortably negative attitude on issues related to workplace diversity. In a Slack message reviewed by The Daily Beast, Griffith seemed to brag to Gawker staff that she had gotten them out of a company-wide diversity training session, though neither Kosoff nor Breslaw had asked her to do so. The two ended up attending.” Griffith claims she did not know this was a diversity meaning, and sure enough in the Slack log in question there is no mention of that aspect of it — she simply says she got them out of most of a long meeting that had been blocked off on their calendar (apologies for low quality): https://postimg.cc/PvqDsz2V/483230fa (https://postimg.cc/PvqDsz2V/483230fa) ACLU tweet: https://twitter.com/ACLU/status/1439259891064004610 (https://twitter.com/ACLU/status/1439259891064004610) Interview in The Atlantic in which Emma Green asks the ACLU's Louise Melling about language like “pregnant people”: https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2021/09/pregnant-people-gender-identity/620031/ (https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2021/09/pregnant-people-gender-identity/620031/) AOC on AC360 (note that she uses “menstruating person,” not ‘menstruator' as Jesse says in the show): https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2021/09/08/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-texas-abbott-abortion-ban-ac360-intv-sot-vpx.cnn (https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2021/09/08/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-texas-abbott-abortion-ban-ac360-intv-sot-vpx.cnn) Transcript: https://transcripts.cnn.com/show/acd/date/2021-09-07/segment/01 (https://transcripts.cnn.com/show/acd/date/2021-09-07/segment/01) Lancet tweet/cover: https://twitter.com/TheLancet/status/1441372277786951681 (https://twitter.com/TheLancet/status/1441372277786951681) Who Ellen Pao is: https://www.thecut.com/2017/08/ellen-pao-silicon-valley-sexism-reset-excerpt.html (https://www.thecut.com/2017/08/ellen-pao-silicon-valley-sexism-reset-excerpt.html) Her complicated departure: https://www.vox.com/2015/7/10/11614622/pao-out-as-reddit-ceo-co-founder-huffman-takes-over (https://www.vox.com/2015/7/10/11614622/pao-out-as-reddit-ceo-co-founder-huffman-takes-over) “The Perverse Incentives That Help Incels Thrive in Tech”: https://twitter.com/ekp/status/991817194987114496 (https://twitter.com/ekp/status/991817194987114496) Even crazier: https://www.wired.com/story/ellen-pao-the-perverse-incentives-that-help-incels-thrive-in-tech/ (https://www.wired.com/story/ellen-pao-the-perverse-incentives-that-help-incels-thrive-in-tech/) Her crazy NYT article: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/15/opinion/elizabeth-holmes-trial-sexism.html (https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/15/opinion/elizabeth-holmes-trial-sexism.html) Actual information about what Holmes did: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/16/podcasts/the-daily/elizabeth-holmes-trial-theranos-silicon-valley.html (https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/16/podcasts/the-daily/elizabeth-holmes-trial-theranos-silicon-valley.html) DoJ release noting she was was indicted alongside Ramesh “Sunny” Balwani who is very much male!): https://www.justice.gov/usao-ndca/pr/theranos-founder-and-former-chief-operating-officer-charged-alleged-wire-fraud-schemes (https://www.justice.gov/usao-ndca/pr/theranos-founder-and-former-chief-operating-officer-charged-alleged-wire-fraud-schemes) Tom Cotton op-ed: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/03/opinion/tom-cotton-protests-military.html (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/03/opinion/tom-cotton-protests-military.html)

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for September 14th, 2021.In a heartbreaking illustration of maxed out hospitals, the staff in one north Alabama hospital contacted 43 others across three states looking for a specialty cardiac ICU bed for patient Ray DeMonia. Most were full with COVID patients, which Ray was not. He wound up in Meridian, Mississippi, about 170 miles away, where he died of a cardiac event shortly after arriving.Looks like Americans are okay with government vaccination mandates. A new Morning Consult/Politico poll shows 58% support them. 62% favor encouraging states to require vaccinations for all school employees; 60% support a mandate for most health care workers with no ability to opt out through regular testing; and 56% support the same rule for most federal workers and contractors.The mantra is the vaccines help keep infections from turning into serious COVID cases. But it does happen. In fact, the Office for National Statistics in England says those who were fully vaccinated accounted for 1.2% of all deaths involving Covid-19 in England so far this year. That number is low and is actually being promoted as proof the vaccines are effective.An international group of scientists including two FDA vaccine reviewers wrote in the science journal Lancet that the average person doesn't need a booster yet. Their review shows the shots are working well, even against Delta. The White House, which promised to “follow the science,” is continuing to follow a different science and is pressing forward with third shots as soon as later this month. The CDC says Americans should not travel to Afghanistan. Which leads to the obvious response, duh. But it's not because of that Taliban thing. The country was added to the list of Level 4 high risk areas for COVID. Also added to the list: Belize, Grenada, Mauritius, Saint Kitts and Nevis. Pretty much anyplace tropical and beautiful you'd like to travel to, they say it's safer for you to stay in the USA, which by the way is now 40th in vaccination rates. In the United States cases were up 8%, deaths are up 36%, and hospitalizations are down 2% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending up since September 12. There are 9,396,924 active cases in the United States.With not all states reporting daily numbers, the five states with the biggest increase in hospitalizations per capita: North Dakota 56%, Alaska 43%, Ohio and Montana 42%, And West Virginia 38%.

We live in a polemic world of clashing misinformation. Especially about hormones. Including testosterone. Too many men are taken off Testosterone (T) if they get a diagnosis of prostate cancer or heart disease even though the science shows otherwise. Today's interview is with Dr. Abraham Morgentaler, Harvard urologist and world expert on Testosterone, who has done much of this science. This is a must hear conversation on hormones and health that you will want to share with your physicians and patients. Dr. Abraham Morgentaler Abraham Morgentaler, MD is an international authority on men's health and a pioneer in the treatment of testosterone deficiency in men. Dr. Morgentaler's research is credited with reversing the decades-old belief that testosterone therapy is risky for prostate cancer. Dr. Morgentaler graduated from Harvard College in 1978 and Harvard Medical School in 1982. He completed his residency in 1988 through the Harvard Program in Urology, and then joined the faculty of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School. He is currently an Associate Clinical Professor of Surgery (Urology) at Harvard Medical School. In 1999, Dr. Morgentaler founded Men's Health Boston, the first center in the US to focus on sexual, reproductive, and hormonal health for men. Dr. Morgentaler was the recipient of the New Investigator Award in 1994 granted by the American Foundation of Urological Disease. Publications Dr. Morgentaler has published over 120 scientific articles on testosterone, prostate cancer, male sexual dysfunction, and male infertility. His work has appeared in The New England Journal of Medicine, The Lancet, The Journal of the American Medical Association, Cancer, and The American Journal of Medicine. He is the author of the book Why Men Fake It: The Totally Unexpected Truth About Men and Sex, which has been widely hailed as a groundbreaking exploration of male sexuality. Dr. Morgentaler's other books include Testosterone For Life: Recharge Your Vitality, Sex Drive, Muscle Mass, and Overall Health, and The Viagra Myth: The Surprising Impact on Love and Relationships. In this show you will learn: That T does NOT drive prostate cancer. How this myth started and has incorrectly affected medicine for 80 years. The known and unknown symptoms of low T. The issue with just looking at total testosterone and why you must run “free testosterone” and also “SHBG”. What lizards and men have in common? The unappreciated role of hormones in overall health and why so often our doctors don't realize this or take this into consideration when treating us.

Bom dia, boa tarde, boa noite! Esse é mais um podcast do Medicina do Conhecimento. Ciência e informação a qualquer momento, em todo lugar. Eu sou Pablo Gusman, o Anestesiador. E como compartilhar é multiplicar lançamos uma série de podcasts para discutirmos e destacarmos a importância da prevenção da hipotermia perioperatória não intencional. Ninguém quer congelar seu paciente no intra-operatório, mas de forma frequente, nós os levamos a riscos de hipotermia não intencional. A hipotermia perioperatória inadvertida ou não intencional é considerada uma complicação frequente da cirurgia e pode ser evitada, desde que tomemos medidas preventivas. E trata-se de um evento que pode atingir até 90% dos pacientes cirúrgicos e é definida como a temperatura corporal central menor que 36.0°C. As repercussões são amplas e podem incluir alterações na farmacocinética de drogas hipnóticas, redução do fluxo sanguíneo hepático e aumento da duração de relaxantes musculares, publicado por trabalhos desde 1995 pelo grupo de Leslie e Sessler. DOI: 10.5482/HAMO-12-05-0011 A hipotermia perioperatória causa vasoconstrição periférica, diminuindo o oxigênio tecidual e tornando a ferida operatória mais suscetível à infecção, principalmente em cirurgias colorretais, mesmo que os níveis de contaminação sejam baixos. Melling publicou no Lancet um estudo controlado randomizado que conseguiu associar o aquecimento pré-operatório aos efeitos do uso de antibioticoprofilaxia em cirurgias limpas, sugerindo a redução de alergias e resistência ao uso dos antibióticos. Isso está cada vez mais atual frente aos protocolos de otimização e recuperação do paciente cirúrgico defendido e validado por várias sociedades de especialidade pelo mundo. DOI: 10.1016/S0140-6736(01)06071-8 Estudos internacionais mostram que a manutenção da temperatura corporal oferece vantagens significativas para a saúde do paciente, como redução de sangramento e diminuição da necessidade de produtos sanguíneos. O paciente sangra no intra-operatório e você não identifica causa aparente? Verifique e corrija acidose, hipotermia e o cálcio de seu paciente. Por isso escolha bem seu líquido de manutenção intraoperatória, sempre use métodos para manter a temperatura do paciente e inclua o cálcio como importante eletrólito para monitorização laboratorial durante sua anestesia. Junto com boa hemostasia cirúrgica, esse fatores corrigidos podem ser o fator diferencial para cessar a hemorragia intraoperatória. Você pode ouvir mais sobre esse tópico no podcast Sangramento no intraoperatório! Em artigo do Departamento de Anastesia e Cuidados Intensivos do Hospital de Amstetten, Austria, Schmied e Reiter evidenciaram que a hipotermia central em pacientes submetidos a artroplastia de quadril pode aumentar em até 500 ml o volume de perdas sanguíneas. Em pacientes idosos e muitas vezes com anemia pré-operatória, a perda desse volume pode ser decisivo para eventos adversos no perioperatório. DOI: 10.1016/S0140-6736(96)90466-3 Do ponto de vista da proteção cardiovascular, a manutenção da normotermia perioperatória reduz a morbidade dos eventos cardíacos. Em ensaio clínico randomizado publicado no JAMA, 300 pacientes submetidos a procedimentos abdominais, vasculares e torácicos com história ou risco aumentado para doença coronária apresentaram diminuição de eventos cardiovasculares. Em analise multivariável, a hipotermia foi um preditor independente de eventos cardíacos, indicando 55% de redução do risco na manutenção da normotermia. Além disso, taquicardia ventricular ocorreu em menor incidência no grupo de normotermia. Lembre-se que sempre vale a pena manter seu coração aquecido!

During this episode, Leslie is joined by Moe Vela, host of "In The Know With Moe," which can be heard and seen all of the same places as the Leslie Marshall Show, each Thursday from 3-4pm ET.  Moe previously served in President Obama's administration as the Director of Administration and Senior Advisor in the Office of then Vice President Joe Biden. First, Moe details his most recent entrepreneurial endeavor as the co-creator, co-producer and co-star of the hottest new business reality streaming series, 'Unicorn Hunters.' Moe stars alongside the likes of Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak, former Treasury Secretary Rosie Rios, Musical Superstar and Investor Lance Bass, and several other business titans and luminaries.  'Unicorn Hunters' is on a mission to democratize access to wealth, so that it is no longer the privilege of a select group. 'Unicorn Hunters' allows founders to reach millions of investors around the world, and provides viewers with the opportunity to invest in pre-IPO opportunities.  The show just finished taping their second season with six new amazing future unicorns who will impact millions of lives.  The show can be seen at UnicornHunters.com. Second, Leslie and Moe give their takes on two very controversial new Texas laws that passed within the last week. The first is "the most restrictive abortion law to be enforced since the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalized abortion nationwide," according to Axios. "The Texas law bans all abortions, including in cases of rape and incest, after the detection of cardiac activity, which is usually around six weeks — before many people know they are pregnant. It also allows individuals to sue anyone suspected of helping a woman obtain an abortion — and awards at least $10,000 to people who do so successfully. The law is difficult to challenge partly because it's unclear who can be sued since it deputizes private citizens to enforce it." The second law is the most restrictive voter suppression bill that has passed nationwide.  It rolls back early voting and adds new ID requirements, which critics say disproportionately impact voters of color. Many of the bill's provisions take aim at expansions put in place in the populous, Democratic Harris County, where officials broadened access last year, per the Texas Tribune. The measure could also make it more difficult for people with disabilities to vote, the Washington Post notes, by creating penalties for people who assist with filling out a ballot. It requires large Texas counties, that tend to lean Democratic, to livestream ballot counting, the New York Times reports. The bill has been a top priority for Texas' Republican Governor, Greg Abbott. "Though there is no evidence fraud took place during the 2020 election, Republicans in many states have pushed for new restrictions based on baseless allegations of voter fraud pushed by former President Trump and others," according to Axios. The final topic that Leslie and Moe discuss is a new joint statement released by editors of over 230 medical journals saying that "Global warming is affecting people's health — and world leaders need to address the climate crisis now as it can't wait until the COVID-19 pandemic is over," according to Axios. "This is the first time so many publications have come together to issue such a joint statement to world leaders, underscoring the severity of the situation — with the Journal of the American Medical Association, the Lancet and the British Medical Journal among those issuing the warning. Ahead of this November's UN general assembly and the Cop26 climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland, the journals warned: "The greatest threat to global public health is the continued failure of world leaders to keep the global temperature rise below 1.5C and to restore nature." "Health is already being harmed by global temperature increases and the destruction of the natural world," states the editorial, which also ran in the New England Journal of Medicine, the International Nursing Review, the Chinese Science Bulletin and Brazil's Revista de Saude Publica. "Despite the world's necessary preoccupation with COVID-19, we cannot wait for the pandemic to pass to rapidly reduce emissions." Of note: World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in a statement ahead of the editorial's publication that the "risks posed by climate change could dwarf those of any single disease." "We will end the COVID-19 pandemic, but there's no vaccine for the climate crisis," Tedros added. The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said last month global warming could reach 1.5°C (2.7°F) compared to pre-industrial levels by 2030. "The editorial reports that heat-related mortality among people older than 65 has risen by over 50% in the past 20 years," according to Axios.

Assistant Professor Andrei Irimia: Mapping brain connections and understanding the relationship between concussions and Alzheimer's disease

Lessons in Lifespan Health

Assistant Professor of Gerontology Andrei Irimia joins Professor George Shannon to discuss brain imaging and brain health, including his work to determine who is most at risk for Alzheimer's disease after suffering a concussion or traumatic brain injury. Quotes from the episode On who is at risk for traumatic brain injury or TBI and adverse impacts from them Usually, injuries sustained early in life are the least likely to cause issues down the road during the aging process. And in fact, the brain is most robust to brain injuries in the first and second decades of life and injuries sustained during that period have typically the best outcomes and the best rates of recovery. And as we age, it becomes more and more difficult for the brain to recover after a traumatic brain injury. So, older adults, especially those over the age of 65, are at the highest risk for a poor outcome after a concussion or a more severe traumatic brain injury. After the age 40 or 45,  there is a little bit of an increase in the risk for degenerative disease, including Alzheimer's disease. And that risk really increases after age 65. We have a preliminary study where we found that the biological age of the brain increases dramatically after a traumatic brain injury sustained after the age of 65, whereas for concussions sustained before that time, the biological age of the brain does not increase substantially at all. On sex differences in traumatic brain injury impacts It appears that in males, there is a higher risk for sequelae down the road up to about age 65, but for persons who are injured after the age of 65, there's actually a greater risk for atrophy of the brain in females, which is interesting because, as you already know, the risk for Alzheimer's disease is higher in females. And also the onset of Alzheimer's disease is typically after the age of 60 or 65. So one thing that my lab is very interested in is how exactly sex interacts with hormonal changes with the rates of biological brain aging and with other factors in determining the risk for Alzheimer's disease. There have been studies indicating without a doubt that there is an increase in the risk for Alzheimer's disease after traumatic brain injury, especially moderate to severe brain injuries.   On identifying patients at risk for cognitive impairment after brain injury We've done a number of studies that have been funded by the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense on how we might be able to predict the risk for cognitive decline after traumatic brain injury. And we have studied cohorts of patients with Alzheimer's disease and compared them to healthy control adults who are age and sex match, who did not have a history of neurological disorders or have mental health disease. And, we found that it is actually possible using some tools that involve machine learning to predict the rate of cognitive decline based on acute imaging findings shortly after the injury. And we were able using these techniques to determine that the fact that we can actually identify the patients who are most likely to, uh, be at the highest risk for accelerated cognitive impairment six months or even one year or further after injury based on imaging scans. So this value, I believe is very valuable because it can identify patients who might benefit from additional monitoring and supervision by their clinicians and who might benefit from tailored therapies and from lifestyle changes that might decelerate the rate of cognitive impairment and might decrease the risk for Alzheimer's disease or other neurodegenerative diseases.   On studying the brain and heart health of the Tsimane This is a very interesting and very important project that's been ongoing for essentially 20 years now. And I'm very fortunate to be part of a very large and talented group of interdisciplinary researchers who study the Tsimane people of the lowland Amazon basin in Bolivia. The Tsimane are a group of forager horticulturalists who live a very traditional lifestyle that does not rely on electricity or any of the amenities that we are used to in the industrialized world. They live in villages located in the forest of lowland areas in Bolivia very far from, uh, electricity from paved roads from modern medicine. And the reason they are very interesting to study is because they have profiles, especially pertaining to their cardiovascular health, to their neurological health and to their inflammatory profile that is very similar to that of our ancestors, many thousands of years ago. And here's a lot of interest in whether, Alzheimer's disease, whether cardiovascular disease and, and many other disorders are perhaps, at least in part, the result of a modern industrialized environment, where we have a large amount of processed foods being used, especially here in the United States where we have air pollution, water pollution where we have a lifestyle involving sedentarianism, which is, uh, very common in the United States and elsewhere in industrial life countries. And by contrast that Tsimane live a very active lifestyle and they live off the land. So, the men go hunting in the forest with bow and arrow. Their cooking does not involve trans fats or a lot of the unhealthy fats that are included in many of the processed foods here in the United States. So it's a very interesting natural experiment so to say, because their example allows us to study how Alzheimer's disease and cardiovascular disease might be in fact, predicated on some of the environmental factors that we have here in the United States and in other industrialized countries. And, my part of this collaboration is focused again, on the brain. And we had a study recently in the Journal of Gerontology where we showed that the brain of the Tsimane people after adjusting for head size, have a rate of volume decrease, which is considerably slower than in populations from the United States and Europe. And we found this to be a significant result because the rate of brain atrophy is very highly correlated with the rate of cognitive decline and with the rate of Alzheimer's disease risk. And, in addition to that, the Tsimane have a very low prevalence of cardiovascular disease. And in fact, a couple of years ago, our group published a paper in the Lancet showing that the Tsimane are the population at the lowest risk for cardiovascular disease out of all populations that have been studied by science. So this is a very unique group who seemed to have excellent cardiovascular health. And now with our study on the brain, we have shown that they also have a very slow rate of brain atrophy, which raises the question as to whether our lifestyle here in the United States and in other countries that are industrialized, where we have unhealthy diets and a sedentary lifestyle might actually increase the risk of Alzheimer's and risk of cardiovascular disease to extent that are highly significant.

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots… Just the facts… for August 30th, 2021. A UK study published in Lancet says people who get the Delta variant are more than twice as likely to be hospitalized as those infected with the alpha strain. Early studies of the Delta variant found it was 50% more transmissible than other strains. The study's author said absent vaccination, Delta outbreaks will keep imposing a huge burden on healthcare. If you're an American who had plans to travel to the EU for fun, start thinking about new plans. The block of nations is expected to announce today that you are too risky to let in. The U.S. is expected to get pulled from the EU's “safe” list for non-essential travel after being on that list less than two months. Of course, the U.S. has maintained its ban on all non-essential travel from Europe. Stressed as healthcare workers are, many continue to refuse to set an example. An American Nurses Association survey shows 1 in 8 nurses still aren't vaccinated and have no plans to get vaccinated. Of those who won't take the shot, 84% said there's not enough info about possible long-term effects. Such nurses have started being fired, adding to critical staff shortages. If you're not scared of COVID maybe you're afraid of snakes. A new published medical study says getting the virus is not unlike being bitten by a poisonous rattlesnake. An enzyme has been identified in the virus that ravages the body like snake venom and causes severe inflammation. It's hoped that targeting that enzyme will help with treatments for COVID. Another shortage might be coming right behind the nursing shortage. School board members. Across the nation, many are deciding the position is just not worth it amidst tense, sometimes violent confrontations about masking in schools. Many are being harassed, threatened, and some have even contemplated suicide. Others are quitting over policies they disagree with. In the United States cases were up 20%, deaths are up 95%, and hospitalizations are up 25% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending up since July 5. There are once again over 8 million active cases in the United States, at 8,184,348. With not all states reporting daily numbers, the five states with the biggest 14-day increase in hospitalizations per capita: South Dakota up 104%. New Hampshire 90%. Delaware 77%. Maine 75%. And West Virginia 66%. The top 10 counties with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Taylor, FL. Clay, KY. Cook, GA. Pierce, GA. Bell, KY. McIntosh, GA. Hardee, FL. Live Oak, TX. Emanuel, GA. And Crockett, TN. There have been at least 637,525 deaths in U.S. recorded as Covid-related. The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont at 67.6%, Massachusetts at 65.6%, and Connecticut at 65.5%. The bottom 3 vaccinating states are Alabama at 37%, Mississippi unchanged at 37.3%, and Wyoming unchanged at 38.2%. The percentage of the U.S. that's been fully vaccinated is at 51.9%. The 5 countries with the largest recent 24-hour increase in the number of fully vaccinated people: Sri Lanka, Australia, and India up 2%. And South Korea and Malaysia 1%.

‘Dancing Mania' - in which people spontaneously danced to exhaustion, some until they broke their ribs and subsequently died, took hold of Aachen, Germany on 24th June, 1374.We still don't really know why. Had the victims ingested ergot, a mould from rye bread that can inspire hallucinations? Was it a hysterical mass response to a stressful and traumatic environment? Or a kind of pre-smartphone flashmob? In this episode, Arion, Rebecca and Olly consider the likely causes and cures for this curious episode, learn about the equally extraordinary phenomenon of Tarantism, and play ‘guess the Saintly disease'... Further Reading:• ‘A Strange Case of Dancing Mania Struck Germany Six Centuries Ago', Smithsonian Magazine (2016)https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/strange-case-dancing-mania-struck-germany-six-centuries-ago-today-180959549/• ‘A forgotten plague: making sense of dancing mania', The Lancet (2009):https://www.thelancet.com/article/S0140-6736(09)60386-X/fulltext• ‘Tarantism: A Rhythm For Your Soul' (Giuliano Capani, 2008) on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6fB4oInT7ATo hear bonus material this and every week*, support the show NOW at Patreon.com/Retrospectors!

Longer antibiotics are associated with increased costs and adverse effects and increase the potential for bacterial resistance. A recent paper in the Lancet describes a study conducted in France comparing the outcomes of patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) who are hospitalized but not critically ill with a short course of antibiotics (3 days) compared to standard treatment (8 days). The study found that the short course was non-inferior to the longer course of antibiotics and may have implications for treating the common infection.References and resources:Dinh A, Ropers J, Duran C, et al.
