CardioNerds (Amit Goyal and Daniel Ambinder), ACHD series co-chair Dr. Daniel Clark (Vanderbilt University), and ACHD FIT lead Dr. Danielle Massarella (Toronto University Health Network) join ACHD expert Dr. Yuli Kim (Associated Professor of Medicine & Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania), to discuss single ventricular heart disease and Fontan palliation. They cover the varied anatomical conditions that can require 3-step surgical palliation culminating in the Fontan circulation, which is characterized by passive pulmonary blood flow, high venous pressures, and low cardiac output. Audio editing by Dr. Gurleen Kaur (Director of the CardioNerds Internship and CardioNerds Academy Fellow).  The CardioNerds Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) series provides a comprehensive curriculum to dive deep into the labyrinthine world of congenital heart disease with the aim of empowering every CardioNerd to help improve the lives of people living with congenital heart disease. This series is multi-institutional collaborative project made possible by contributions of stellar fellow leads and expert faculty from several programs, led by series co-chairs, Dr. Josh Saef, Dr. Agnes Koczo, and Dr. Dan Clark. The CardioNerds Adult Congenital Heart Disease Series is developed in collaboration with the Adult Congenital Heart Association, The CHiP Network, and Heart University.

Pearls There are various forms of unpalliated ‘single ventricle' congenital heart disease. The three main hemodynamic issues that need to be addressed in any form are unbalanced flow, pulmonary over-circulation, and blood mixing.  The Fontan palliation is a series of operations for congenital heart disease patients in whom biventricular repair is not feasible.  In the completed Fontan circulation, systemic venous blood is surgically routed directly to the lungs, effectively bypassing the heart, and creating passive pulmonary blood flow.  The hallmarks of the Fontan circulation (and Fontan failure) are elevated central venous pressure and low cardiac output.  Patients with Fontan circulation may experience significant morbidity in the long term from both cardiac and non-cardiac sequelae, and require lifelong specialist care.  Show notes 1. Why do some patients require Fontan palliation?  Many different types of anatomies may ultimately require single ventricular palliation via the Fontan procedure due to inadequate biventricular function to support both pulmonary and systemic circulations. Some examples include Tricuspid Atresia (hypoplastic RV), Double Inlet Left Ventricle (DILV; hypoplastic RV), Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS; hypoplastic LV), and atrioventricular septal defects (AVSD; either RV or LV may be inadequate based on “commitment” of the common AV valve). The Fontan procedure was first described in 1971; at this time, mortality of single ventricular patients exceeded 90% in the first year of life.  2. What are the stages of Fontan palliation?  Effective pulmonary blood flow/balancing flow to the pulmonary and systemic circulations: for many conditions, this involves retrograde pulmonary blood flow from a systemic -> PA shunt (i.e. Blalock-Taussig-Thomas “BTT” shunt in which the subclavian artery is turned down and anastomosed to the pulmonary artery). In infants, the pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) is high perinatally and gradually lowers over the first 3 months of life to adult levels with exposure to the atmosphere's natural pulmonary vasodilator: oxygen. Thus, in the first 3 months of life babies have an intri...

When SARS-CoV-2 first arrived, it was as if a raging wildfire had been blown by a strong wind through dry, flammable timber. So says Ali Ellebedy, PhD, an immunologist at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. As a population, he says, we were completely vulnerable to the virus because no one's immune system had seen it before. In the two years since the virus first appeared, millions of infections and vaccinations have been able to tamp down some of the flames, and Ellebedy says that process should continue in the coming weeks and months. He's looking forward to new vaccines being tested that are designed specifically to fight the omicron variant. He says if society wants to return to a more normal way of living, it's important to vaccinate as many people as possible, as soon as possible, throughout the country and the world. But it's also important to update vaccines to make them more effective. Ellebedy says that although he has no idea whether omicron will be the last of the major COVID-19 variants, he is confident that if another variant does arise, it will be more similar to omicron than to former variants, so he says omicron-derived vaccines should be beneficial even as the virus continues to evolve.

New study calls into question the importance of meat eating in shaping our evolution George Washington University, Jan. 24, 2022  Quintessential human traits such as large brains first appear in Homo erectus nearly 2 million years ago. This evolutionary transition towards human-like traits is often linked to a major dietary shift involving greater meat consumption. A new study published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, however, calls into question the primacy of meat eating in early human evolution. While the archaeological evidence for meat eating increases dramatically after the appearance of Homo erectus, the study authors argue that this increase can largely be explained by greater research attention on this time period, effectively skewing the evidence in favor of the “meat made us human” hypothesis. Barr and his colleagues compiled published data from nine major research areas in eastern Africa, including 59 site levels dating between 2.6 and 1.2 million years ago. They used several metrics to track hominin carnivory: the number of zooarchaeological sites preserving animal bones that have cut marks made by stone tools, the total count of animal bones with cut marks across sites, and the number of separately reported stratigraphic levels. The researchers found that, when accounting for variation in sampling effort over time, there is no sustained increase in the relative amount of evidence for carnivory after the appearance of H. erectus.    New study shows aged garlic extract can reduce dangerous plaque buildup in arteries UCLA Medical Center, January 21, 2022   The supplement Aged Garlic Extract can reverse the buildup of deadly plaque in arteries and help prevent the progression of heart disease, according to a new study scheduled for publication in the Journal of Nutrition.   The research, conducted at LA BioMed, found a reduction in the amount of low-attenuation plaque, or "soft plaque," in the arteries of patients with metabolic syndrome who took Aged Garlic Extract. Metabolic syndrome is characterized by obesity, hypertension and other cardiac risk factors.   Following evaluation, the participants were given either a placebo or a dose of 2,400 milligrams of Aged Garlic Extract every day. A follow-up screening conducted a year after the initial screening found those who had taken Aged Garlic Extract had slowed total plaque accumulation by 80%, reduced soft plaque and demonstrated regression (less plaque on follow-up) for low-attenuation plaque.       Eating More Plants May Keep Dementia From Flourishing University of Barcelona (Spain), January 14, 2022   A recently published 12-year cohort study out of the University of Barcelona suggests that following a plant-based diet may help reduce the risk of cognitive decline and dementia in older age. Of the 800 participants, all aged 65 and up, those who consumed polyphenol-rich foods such as fruits and vegetables, as well as mushrooms, cocoa, coffee and red wine, had a lower risk of dementia compared to those who avoided these "superfoods." According to the study's authors, these findings shed light on the relationship between the body's metabolism, the gut's microbiome (which includes trillions of microorganisms) and cognitive impairment. "Studying this relationship is essential to develop preventive and therapeutic strategies that help take care of our cognitive health," the authors stated in the Molecular Nutrition & Food Research Journal.   Supplement urolithin A appears to boost muscle, mitochondria health University of Washington School of Medicine, January 22, 2022 An oral supplement intended to stimulate a natural body process appears to promote muscle endurance and mitochondrial health in humans. New research suggests that the supplement, urolithin A, may help improve or prolong muscle activity in people who are aging or who have diseases that make exercise difficult.  Urolithin A is a byproduct of a person's gut bacteria and a diet comprising polyphenols found in pomegranates, berries and nuts. Because diet, age, genetics and disease affect the makeup of the gut microbiome, people produce urolithin A at variable rates. The compound also is produced and sold by dietary supplement companies. Supplemental urolithin A has been shown in animal tests and molecular studies of humans to stimulate mitophagy, a process that Marcinek explained as “mitochondrial quality control.” “Even though we did not observe an effect of the supplement in whole body function (via six-minute measure and ATP production),” Marcinek said, “these results are still exciting because they demonstrate that just taking a supplement for a short duration actually improved muscle endurance. Fatigue resistance got better in the absence of exercise.”The study's funder, Amazentis, of Lausanne, Switzerland, manufactures the urolithin A supplement used in the trial.   Step Up: walking may reduce Type 2 Diabetes risk for adults 65 and older University of California at San Diego, January 22, 2022 Walking regularly and at greater intensity may help prevent Type 2 diabetes among 70 and 80 year olds, according to one of the first studies measuring steps and pace among this population. The more steps a person takes, and the more intense, the lower their risk for developing diabetes, report researchers in a study published in Diabetes Care. “A key figure from our study is that for every 1,000 steps per day, our results showed a 6% lower diabetes risk in this population. What that means is, if the average older adult were to take 2,000 more steps every day in addition to what they were already doing, they might expect a 12% reduction in diabetes risk,” said first author Alexis C. Garduno, a third-year student in the University of California San Diego and San Diego State University joint doctoral program in public health.     Fish oil, vitamin B12 supplementation associated with lower plasma homocystein Zhejiang University (China), January 25 2022    The Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition published the finding of researchers at Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, China of a reduction in plasma homocysteine levels following supplementation with vitamin B12 and/or fish oil.    "No study has reported the effect of vitamin B12 in combination with fish oil on plasma homocysteine, ferritin, CRP and other cardiovascular disease risk factors in Chinese," announce Duo Li and colleagues in their introduction to the article.    Thirty men and women were randomly assigned to receive 1000 micrograms (mcg) vitamin B12, 2 grams fish oil, or 2 grams fish oil plus 1000 mcg vitamin B12. Plasma vitamin B12, lipids, ferritin (a biomarker of iron status), C-reactive protein (CRP), total homocysteine and other factors were measured before treatment and after four and eight weeks of supplementation.    Among those who received fish oil alone or fish oil plus vitamin B12, triglycerides, CRP and ferritin significantly decreased after four and eight weeks of supplementation. Homocysteine was lowered by 22% in the vitamin B12 group, 19% in the fish oil group and 39% among those who received both supplements for eight weeks.       VIDEO   Nicole Sirotek (founder of America's Frontline Nurses) shares what she saw on the front lines Speaking at congressional hearing moderated by Sen Ron Johnson on Monday January 24 https://rumble.com/vt837j-registered-nurse-nicole-sirotek-shares-what-she-saw-on-the-front-lines-in-n.html   US Report Reveals 22 Years of Effort and Fluoridation Failed to Improve Oral Health New York -- January 24, 2022  Despite increases in public water fluoridation, dental visits, sealants, fluoride varnish applications, and significant financial, training, and program investments, oral health hasn't improved in 22 years, according to a National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) Oral Health in America Report (December 2021), reports the New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF). “America's shockingly poor dental system, poverty and poor diets are to blame,” says attorney Paul Beeber, NYSCOF President.  Millions of Americans can't access dental care, while 70% of US children and adolescents are fluoride-overdosed, afflicted with fluorosis (permanently discolored teeth).   For example, the NIDCR reports: The military continues to face challenges in meeting recruitment goals and military readiness because of oral health-related issues. Untreated cavities among the poor remain twice that of non-poor. Disparities persist by race/ethnicity status. Primary tooth decay increased in boys aged 6-11 and didn't change in adolescents' and adults' permanent teeth. Untreated decay in permanent teeth shows no progress.  In ages 2-11, decayed tooth surfaces increased with a greater impact on boys   Four out of 5 Americans aged 6 years and older experience cavities, irrespective of poverty or race/ethnicity status.   40% of children have eroded teeth.       China Builds 27 Empty New York Cities Epoch Times, January 20, 2022 As of 2016, China's empty apartment units could house New York City 27 times over. With that in mind, how could you afford to pay the construction mortgages on 70 million apartment units with no residents deeded to you by the evil genie? A challenging question. You would have to do some fast talking with the Chinese banks of the sort Trump managed with New York banks decades ago during the S&L crisis. Your only hope of avoiding being sucked into a black hole of debt defaults would be to hire some creative scoundrels disguised as accountants to help you persuade the banks to lend you additional billions (or more probably, trillions) to postpone the day of reckoning. Note that the extent to which you could succeed would only worsen the ultimate malinvestment problem. Your assets would not be enhanced in any way by being encumbered with additional debt. They would just become more costly. That is at least a $36.4 trillion question. Maybe a $45.9 trillion, or possibly even a $116.6 trillion question. The correct answer depends on China's actual debt level. Forbes reports the estimate of Professor Victor Shih of the University of California San Diego. Shih believes that Chinese official debt figures have proven woefully inadequate. In 2017, Shih put total Chinese debt at 328 percent of GDP (reported at $14 trillion), therefore $45.9 trillion. According to Shih, “total interest payments from June 2016 to June 2017 exceeded the incremental increase in nominal GDP by roughly 8 trillion RMB.” A collapse of China's asset bubble lies ahead. I doubt any Chinese tycoons are strolling the streets of Shanghai with their girlfriends, making jokes about street people being a trillion yuan richer than they are. That underscores a problem when the government of a country enlarges debt to magnitudes beyond the scale of assets held by even the wealthiest persons. That makes it all the more unlikely that mortgaged assets can be redeemed from hock while encumbered by anything like their current level of debt.   IMF sees cost of COVID pandemic rising beyond $12.5 trillion estimate  IMF/OECD News 21/01/2022   The International Monetary Fund expects to raise its forecast that the COVID-19 pandemic will cost the global economy $12.5 trillion through 2024, the head of the global lender said on Thursday. IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva told an event hosted by the Financial Times that supply chain disruptions, inflation and tighter monetary policy were “throwing cold water on the recovery everywhere.” She said huge gaps in COVID-19 vaccine rates and the overall widening divergence between rich and poor caused by the pandemic, along with learning losses and increased gender impacts, would cause more protests, tensions and insecurity.     Review of the Emerging Evidence Demonstrating the Efficacy of Ivermectin in the Prophylaxis and Treatment of COVID-19 Kory, Pierre MD, Marik, Paul E. MD American Journal of Therapeutics: May Jun 2021 - Volume 28 - Issue 3  Therapeutic Advances:  A large majority of randomized and observational controlled trials of ivermectin are reporting repeated, large magnitude improvements in clinical outcomes. Numerous prophylaxis trials demonstrate that regular ivermectin use leads to large reductions in transmission. Multiple, large “natural experiments” occurred in regions that initiated “ivermectin distribution” campaigns followed by tight, reproducible, temporally associated decreases in case counts and case fatality rates compared with nearby regions without such campaigns. Conclusions:  Meta-analyses based on 18 randomized controlled treatment trials of ivermectin in COVID-19 have found large, statistically significant reductions in mortality, time to clinical recovery, and time to viral clearance. Furthermore, results from numerous controlled prophylaxis trials report significantly reduced risks of contracting COVID-19 with the regular use of ivermectin. Finally, the many examples of ivermectin distribution campaigns leading to rapid population-wide decreases in morbidity and mortality indicate that an oral agent effective in all phases of COVID-19 has been identified.     The media blackout on Fauci's damning emails They suggest something nefarious was up on the lab leak theory yet the press has refused to notice SPECTATOR WORLD, January 17, 2022  Last week saw another batch of emails drop from Anthony Fauci, and another media blackout as to their contents. The strategy by the press in cases like this has been pretty straightforward: ignore the story, wait for right-leaning media or Republicans to pick it up, then frame any attacks on the subject as tainted by partisanship. Last week, when confronted once again by Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky, Fauci responded with more hyperbole and ad hominem. The media, meanwhile, framed the exchanges as “Rand Paul Attacks!” and “Anthony Fauci defends!” They refused to look at the information in the emails that Paul was asking about, refused to ask questions about them, refused to even report on them. They are interested in the bloodsport, not the truth. The reason for that is simple: the truth is becoming very problematic for the man who once conflated himself with science itself. The only reporting done on the emails by the New York Times, for instance, was a video clip from the Associated Press regarding the exchange with Senator Paul. What has not been covered with any sort of journalistic enthusiasm is the topic of the emails themselves, the most damning yet, which suggest that Fauci and Dr. Francis Collins, the former head of the NIH, purposefully downplayed the possibility of a lab leak in Wuhan, China, at the start of the pandemic because it might have damaged “international harmony” in the scientific community.   Alberta Canada Inadvertently Published (and Quickly Deleted) Health Data Exposing that More Than Half of Vaccinated Deaths Have Been Counted as Unvaccinated Gateway Pundit 23 January 2022 In yet another absolute bombshell revelation the government of Alberta, Canada exposed itself this week when it accidentally published damning evidence that exposes how the public health authorities have been manipulating the Covid-19 statistics. After seemingly realizing what it had just done, the corrupt Canadian province quickly scrambled to delete the incriminating data off their website, but, thanks to internet sleuths like Twitter user Metatron – and his substack post, we have the receipts. According to its latest Covid-19 update, the Alberta Government admitted to following the fraudulent standard that was in use by vaccine manufacturers during clinical trials – which is to ignore the adverse outcomes, including Covid infection, hospitalizations, and deaths, for fourteen days after vaccine administration – no matter how many doses they have had. But instead of just ignoring the cases like the vaccine manufacturers, the corrupt Alberta government has been lumping them in with the unvaxxed. In other words, anyone who was infected – was hospitalized – or even died, in the two weeks following their first, second, or even THIRD dose would be recorded as an unvaccinated case. And now, thanks to the now-deleted data, we can tell exactly how many cases have been fraudulently manipulated by inadvertently including the time from dose to infection for each of the events – and as it turns out, over half of the vaccinated deaths were added to the unvaccinated. Almost 56% of ‘recorded' Covid-related deaths among the vaccinated occurred within 14 days of vaccination – and almost 90% within 45 days, which is noteworthy because that is what's claimed to be the timeframe of the vaccine's effectiveness. As for hospitalizations, the numbers aren't that much better. Almost half of the severe cases among the vaccinated happened within the two-week window, meaning they were tallied as unvaccinated in the official record. 80% of which occurred within the first 45 days post-vaccination.   COVID testing firm piled unprocessed swabs in trash bags, billed feds $113M ARS TECHNICA  1/20/2022,  Federal and state investigations into a large national chain of COVID-19 testing sites have turned up tests that were never labeled with patients' names, tests piled into trash bags stored for long periods at room temperature, tests that were never processed, and test results that were clearly fake. Behind the testing sites are two Illinois-based companies: Center for COVID Control (CCC) and Doctors Clinical Laboratory, Inc., which is said to carry out COVID PCR testing for CCC. The two companies share the same address, though CCC is owned by Chicago-area couple Akbar Syed and Aleya Siyaj, while the clinical company is owned by Mohammed Shujauddin. Together, the companies claim to provide rapid and PCR testing for COVID-19, with fast turnaround times and no appointments necessary. So far, they have collected more than 400,000 samples from over 300 locations across the US. And they have billed the federal government over $113 million for running many of those tests. The companies are currently under investigation by the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), as well as multiple states. On Wednesday, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison filed a lawsuit alleging numerous counts of deceptive or fraudulent practices by the pair. According to federal inspections reported by NBC News, CCC employees didn't even label some samples with patients' names. Inspection documents from federal investigators noted that "51 out of 51 patient specimen tubes contained in the box [they examined] were blank.”     Two Studies: COVID-19 Vaccines Trigger Autoimmune Graves' Disease  Sharyl Attkisson, The Vaccine Reaction, July 26, 2021   A recent published medical report out of Mexico details two cases of healthy, female health care workers who got COVID-19 vaccines and, three days later, developed “thyroid hyperactivity, suppressed thyroid-stimulating hormone, and elevated antithyroid antibodies.” They were both diagnosed with vaccine-induced Graves' disease. According to the authors who wrote up the cases, “autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by [vaccine] adjuvants  (ASIA), described for the first time a decade ago, is triggered by several adjuvants (a substance that enhances the antigen-specific immune response) and includes the following conditions: Gulf War syndrome, siliconosis, macrophagic myofasciitis syndrome, and postvaccination phenomena.” According to a summary, “Vaccines have been shown to trigger an immune response that leads to a broad spectrum of autoimmune diseases, including autoimmune thyroid disease. Our patients met the diagnostic criteria for ASIA [autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants]; they were exposed to an adjuvant (vaccine), and they developed clinical manifestations of thyroid hyperfunction within a few days, with the appearance of antithyroid antibodies, despite being healthy before vaccination.” The scientists write, “In addition, the spike glycoprotein of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) vaccine shares a genetic similarity with a large heptapeptide human protein, so this is an additional factor that can trigger autoimmune disease (AID) after vaccination due to molecular mimicry.”     Antibodies from original strain COVID-19 infection don't bind to variants University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign People infected with the original strain of the virus that causes COVID-19 early in the pandemic produced a consistent antibody response, making two main groups of antibodies to bind to the spike protein on the virus's outer surface. However, those antibodies don't bind well to newer variants, a new study from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign found. The researchers mined published papers about COVID-19 patients for data about the sequence of the antibodies they produced. They focused on antibodies against the spike protein, the part of the virus that binds to receptors on human cells to infect them. The spike protein is the target of most vaccines. They found that many antibody sequences converged into two main groups, indicating a consistent human immune response to the virus, said graduate student Timothy Tan, the first author of the study. Even though this antibody response is very common with the original strain, it doesn't really interact with variants," Wu said. "That, of course, raises the concern of the virus evolving to escape the body's main antibody response. Some antibodies should still be effective—the body makes antibodies to many parts of the virus, not only the spike protein—but the particular groups of antibodies that we saw in this study will not be as effective."atients who have been infected with variants, understanding the difference in the immune response is one of the directions that we would like to pursue."   Why shoplifting is soaring across the US — and will only get worse NEW YORK POST. January 22, 2022   Retail crime has been rising throughout the US for the past five years, with organized criminal rings targeting stores everywhere from Woonsocket (Rhode Island) to Greensboro (North Carolina) to Grafton (Wisconsin). The National Retail Federation reported that store losses mounted from $453,940 per $1 billion in sales in 2015 to $719,458 in 2020.  The biggest increase over that period happened not during the pandemic but in 2019, when total losses from shoplifting surged to $61 billion, up from $50 billion the previous year. The COVID-19 lockdowns in 2020 and early 2021 moderated losses, largely because stores were closed or had curtailed operating hours. Now that retailing has resumed, crime has spiked again. Shoplifting no longer fits its traditional mold as a nonviolent crime perpetrated mostly by teens or substance-abusing adults. Nearly two-thirds of the retailers surveyed by the National Retail Federation said that violence associated with store thefts has risen, led by organized gangs that resell the goods they steal. Like retailers, top law-enforcement officials place some of the blame for the crime surge on a widespread lessening of penalties for shoplifting.  California's recent headline-making “flash mob” shoplifting sprees have brought widespread attention to Proposition 47 — a 2014 state ballot initiative, supported by a range of left-leaning and libertarian groups, which, among other things, boosted the felony threshold for shoplifting from $450 of merchandise to $950. Soon after it passed, retailers in California began reporting a sharp uptick in retail theft, often in plain view of helpless store personnel and distressed customers.  What has received far less attention, however, is the fact that California's Prop. 47 was not an outlier among states. In the past 10 years, nearly half of all states have boosted their thresholds for retail felony theft. Thirty-eight states now don't consider shoplifting a felony unless $1,000 or more of merchandise gets stolen. A 2020 National Retail Federation report on organized retail crime found that two-thirds of retailers in states that had raised their felony shoplifting minimums reported growing retail theft.   The Significance of the Nuremberg Code: The Universal Right of Informed Consent to Medical Interventions By Alliance for Human Research Protection Global Research, September 20, 2021 The universal right of Informed Consent to medical interventions has been recognized in US law since at least 1914. That year, the New York Court of Appeals established the right to informed consent to medical intervention in a case involving non-consensual surgery. Schloendorff v. Society of New York Hospital 105 N.E. 92, 93 N.Y. (1914) Justice Benjamin Cardozo articulated the court's reasoning:   Every human being of adult years and sound mind has a right to determine what shall be done with his own body; and a surgeon who performs an operation without his patient's consent commits an assault for which he is liable in damages.” The 1947 Nuremberg Code is the most important legal document in the history of medical research ethics. It established 10 foundational principles of ethical clinical research. The first and foremost principle is unequivocal: “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential”. It prohibits research to be conducted on human beings without the informed consent of the individual. The first US Supreme Court decision in which the Nuremberg Code was invoked was in 1987.  The plaintiff was a Sergeant in the US Army who sought compensation — having been a victim in a covert CIA-sponsored, LSD mind-control experiment. In 1994, the Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments was tasked with investigating and documenting the scope of unethical US government human radiation experiments. The (ACHRE) Report(1995) includes CIA mind-control experiments and devotes two chapters to the Nuremberg Code, and describes the growing influence that the Nuremberg Doctors Trial and the Nuremberg Code had on the American medical establishment. In 2001, the Maryland Court of Appeal explicitly cited the Nuremberg Code as a source of legally enforceable ethical standardsin the case against the Kennedy Krieger Institute. The case involved a government lead abatement experiment that exposed inner city Black toddlers to lead paint. The purpose was to record the damaging effects of lead. The parents were not informed about the purpose or the risks.  The case involved Pfizer which conducted an unapproved, trial of its experimental antibiotic, Trovan on children in Nigeria. The court found Pfizer guilty. Rabi Abdullahi, et al. v. Pfizer, Inc., 562 F.3d (2d Cir. 2009) “Among the nonconsensual experiments that the tribunal cited as a basis for their convictions were the testing of drugs for immunization against malaria, epidemic jaundice, typhus, smallpox and cholera. Seven of the convicted doctors were sentenced to death and the remaining eight were sentenced to varying terms of imprisonment. The American tribunal's conclusion that action that contravened the Code's first principle constituted a crime against humanity is a lucid indication of the international legal significance of the prohibition on nonconsensual medical experimentation.” Telford Taylor explained,“Nuernberg was based on enduring [legal] principles and not on temporary political expedients, and this fundamental point is apparent from the reaffirmation of the Nuernberg principles in Control Council Law No. 10, and their application and refinement in the 12 judgments rendered under that law during the 3-year period, 1947 to 1949.”   On March 7th an Israeli citizens group filed a a petition to the International Criminal Court charging the Israeli Government with violating the Nuremberg Code with its mandatory Vaccination policy Anshe Ha-Emet (People of the Truth) a fellowship, composed of Israeli doctors, lawyers and citizens, filed a complaint against the government national “medical experiment” without the informed consent of the citizens. Attorneys Ruth Makhachovsky and Aryeh Suchowolski filed the complaint stating: “When the heads of the Ministry of Health as well as the prime minister presented the vaccine in Israel and began the vaccination of Israeli residents, the vaccinated were not advised, that, in practice, they are taking part in a medical experiment and that their consent is required for this under the Nuremberg Code”.

Testing for COVID-19 is a part of the strategy to end the pandemic. But understanding testing — different types of tests and how and when to use them — can be confusing. Lab-run polymerase chain reaction, or PCR, tests and at-home antigen tests each have a role."PCR tests are really sensitive, meaning we can detect really low levels of the virus in a sample," explains Dr. Matthew Binnicker, director of Clinical Virology at Mayo Clinic. "They're very specific, meaning we shouldn't get many false positive results with PCR tests."At-home antigen tests use a nasal swab and can produce results in 15 minutes, but they also have an increased chance of false-negative results, depending on when you test. "At-home rapid antigen tests look for a viral protein in the patient sample," says Dr. Binnicker. "So they're quick and easy, but they also have some important limitations."So if you're worried you might have COVID-19, what test should you take and when? On the Q&A podcast, Dr. Binnicker walks through various scenarios and makes testing recommendations for what to do if: You think you've been exposed but I don't have symptoms. You have symptoms of COVID-19. You had COVID-19 and want to know if you're “in the clear” to return to work, school or activities.

Battling burnout, struggling to be a better mom, and finding balance are some of the biggest concerns of physician mothers. I'm so glad to share this conversation with an actual voice of experience, Dr. Susan Landers. She join me to talk about how she embraced “good enough,” embraced being a working mom, and found balance in her home and career.   Key Takeaways Take care of yourself.  Find out what makes you feel really good about yourself and really fulfilled, do that. A lot. Give yourself permission to do what fulfills you. Give yourself a pat on the back.  Have some self-compassion! We're too hard on ourselves as physician moms. You're going to be okay.   About Dr. Susan Landers Dr. Susan Landers is a retired neonatologist with 34 years of NICU experience. She practiced in academic medicine (on faculty of two medical schools) and in private practice. She has special expertise in breastfeeding medicine and human donor breastmilk banking. She currently lives in Austin, Tx. Susan raised three children (now all young adults) with her physician husband while they both practiced medicine full time. In her memoir called "So Many Babies: My Life Balancing a Busy Medical Career and Motherhood,” she talks about some of her best, and worst, life experiences, and how she managed to stay resilient. Susan enjoys sharing the things she learned during her journey as an ambitious, successful doctor who raised three children while working full-time. Susan attended medical school at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston and completed a pediatrics residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. Her neonatology fellowship was completed at Texas Children's Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.   On Struggling with Burnout and Balance Dr. Susan Landers begins our conversation today by sharing her experience of burnout. It's something she struggled through for much of her career in academia before choosing to set some boundaries that supported her as a mother, wife, and physician. She offers some advice for new and mid-career physicians from her experience tackling burnout. Susan gives some tips for how you can ask for help, especially when you're struggling to. We all know asking for help isn't the easiest thing to do! She also shares some incredible advice her therapist gave her about how many plates she's balancing and how that helped her realize what her priorities actually were. By focusing on what she could actually control, instead of all the things that were out of her control, Susan felt like she was better equipped to create balance in her life.   On Becoming a Working Mom One of Susan's biggest struggles was coming to terms with the fact that she was a good enough mom. There's so much pressure on working moms to be perfect in all aspects of life, especially as a mother and a physician.  After twenty years, she finally understood that she was a working mom and that that is a totally okay and acceptable thing to be. Now Susan's goal is to continue being good enough. We don't need to be perfect; we just need to be good enough. Finally, Susan explains how her supportive community and friends, the people outside her husband and children, are an essential part of creating balance in her life. She knows she can seek conversation, support, and advice from them whenever she needs it. Are you struggling with being the perfect mom and physician? It's so understandable. I would love it if you tried to adopt the “good enough” mantra this year and see how that changes your life. Let me know in the comments on the episode page what you're struggling with!   In This Episode  What new or mid-career physicians need to know about burnout [4:45] How to ask for help when you're struggling to ask [10:30] Why you need to realize what your priorities actually are [13:30] What happens when you focus on what you can control instead of what you can't control [16:30] The realities of being a working mom [21:00] How to be comfortable with your balance of loving your job and loving being a mom [24:00] Why a supportive community, outside your partner, is essential [26:30]   Quotes “Sometimes you have to make really big changes to see the light. To figure out what it is that your problem is.” [7:09] “You have to actually say to yourself, ‘Where do I fit in? What are my strengths? And where can they be used?'” [15:11] “I struggled to feel like a good enough mom for twenty years. It took me a long, long time, and my dear husband telling me I am a good enough mom, to feel that way. We work so much and we miss so much. We want to be involved in everything our children do, but we all love medicine and we love our job! We love taking care of other people, but we also want to take care of our kids. We're in a position our whole careers to not be good enough because we're doing other things besides being a mom. Just accept that who you are is a working mom.” [21:10] “I think the working moms, especially physician moms, try so hard to be good enough, but they need to stop and say to themselves, ‘I am doing the best that I can. I am a physician and I am a mother and I am doing the best job I can. I'm not going to be perfect but I'm going to be good enough.” [23:16]   Resources Mentioned Join G.O.A.L.S.

Highly respected obesity expert Dr. Robert F. Kushner joins the show to talk about new research findings. He was part of a team that published semaglutide study results in the New England Journal of Medicine this past year. Looking into semaglutide, typically used for Type 2 Diabetes, showed that it also reduced body weight.We talk about how you might use semaglutide, both from an aging perspective and from a weight loss perspective. You look at risk reward for everything you can do, and then you decide what's going to work best for you. There's some interesting knowledge to be gained from the research on semaglutide.Here's the short version of how it works: “Semaglutide mimics our naturally occurring hormone called GLP-1,” explains Dr. Kushner. “When you give it back to a person in pharmacologic doses or high doses, but it mimics what we normally have, it augments or highlights this feeling of, "You know what, I am really not as hungry as I was before. I'm more full than I was before, so I don't need as much food." It's actually the change in appetite that causes a weight loss that we see with this kind of a drug.”A clinician, educator and researcher, Dr. Kushner has spent his decades-long career on adult weight management for adults. Board certified in both internal medicine and nutrition, he maintains a medical practice, teaches students and medical professionals, and presents around the world. He's written more than 250 original articles, as well as reviews, books and medical book chapters.He's Medical Director of the Center for Lifestyle Medicine at Northwestern Medicine in Chicago; a professor of Medicine in the Division of Endocrinology and a professor of Medical Education at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.This episode's conversation includes the role of lifestyle in weight management. It's shortsighted to view semaglutide as a wonder drug isolated from diet, exercise and even mental health. It's all related. And new understanding of obesity as a disease and its biological drivers helps the search for lasting solutions, including training for healthcare professionals.Listen on to find out more about semaglutide and six factors that might be causing your weight gain or making it difficult for you to lose weight.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Infantile Hemangiomas is a common skin disorder that usually appears on children at birth or during the first few months of life. Hemangiomas are blood vessels that have incorrectly formed and multiply rapidly. Although they can form on any part of the body, they most often appear on the face, chest, scalp or back. Most of the time, Infantile Hemangiomas go away on their own, but some situations may require you to refer your patient to a specialist. In this episode we will unpack the presentation and management of infantile hemangiomas in the primary care setting. Today I am happy to be speaking with my colleague, Dr. Carla Torres-Zegarra. Dr. Torres-Zegarra is a Dermatologist here at Children's Hospital Colorado and is an Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.

The Essential Oil Revolution –– Aromatherapy, DIY, and Healthy Living w/ Samantha Lee Wright

What do you think about when you hear the word “Witch?” The days of persecution and nay-saying magical women are over! In fact, the term “witch” has been misused for centuries. Barbara Ehrenreigh says it best in her book Witches, Midwives,and Nurses: A History of Women Healers: “Women have always been healers. They were the unlicensed doctors and anatomists. They were abortionists, nurses and counselors. They were the pharmacists, cultivating healing herbs, and exchanging the secrets of their uses. They were midwives, traveling from home to home and village to village. For centuries women were doctors without degrees, barred from books and lectures, learning from each other, and passing on experience from neighbor to neighbor and mother to daughter. They were called “wise women” by the people, witches or charlatans by the authorities. Medicine is part of our heritage as women, our history, our birthright.” We talk about this and more with Crystal Moon on this week's episode full of Magik!

If You Want To Use Breathwork Effectively, You Should: Be sure to nasal breathe on your day today Always focus on a slow, deep breath  Explore breathwork apps like Othership   Breathwork has been a powerful tool that has helped me reset my stress response patterns and create a greater sense of peace and transformation. Feeling stressed is the new normal for many women, but it doesn't have to be that way. If you can learn how to control your breath, you can rewire your brain and reset your stress response system using something you do every single day.   Creating Breakthrough Experiences with Amanda Laine Amanda Laine is the co-founder of Othership, the leading digital breathwork content creator. Othership was born out of the desire to help people do breathwork online or in-person to experience the transformative power of breathwork. Amanda combines breathwork, hypnosis, movement, and sound in innovative ways, which has led to thoughts of breakthrough experiences. She is passionate about helping others build resilience and transform their lives through the Othership app.   Don't Take Your Breath for Granted One of the reasons many of us have become so bad at responding to stress is because of all of the comforts our lives contain, compared to the hunters and gatherers that came before us. Because we don't need to be running for food or being worried about getting eaten by a bear, our brain has been rewired to stress out about other things instead. Utilizing breathwork is one of the easiest ways to help calm your central nervous system in times of stress. Most of us take our breath for granted, but it is the key to resetting our body's stress response and bringing ourselves back to equilibrium.   The Best Way to Release Your Stress Even if you have tried breathwork in the past, you have probably never tried it the Othership way. In as little as 4 minutes, Othership can help you release in the comfort of your own home, which Amanda has found to lead to more intense and more fulfilling breathwork sessions.  Breathwork can help you rewire your state of consciousness, heal trauma, release stuck energy patterns and those thoughts that aren't serving you. The direct evidence of how breathwork, and stressors like sauna and cold-plunge therapy, can help you shift out of parasympathetic stress is undeniable. Are you ready to access this powerful tool that is available to you every single day? Share your experience with breathwork with me in the comments section of the episode page.   Quotes: “The breath is everything. The breath is your direct relation and direct connection to your nervous system. So if your breath is in any way constricted, and so too is that exact degree to your life, they follow suit.” (8:51) “For me, I like to explain breathwork as an active form of meditation, so you are using an anchor to keep yourself in the present moment, and that anchor is your breath.” (14:29) “When you feel a session, you feel better than when you started. It is a tangible result.” (20:45) “It is a full experience. You can go really deep. And instead of going to a bar or a restaurant or the classic things people do with friends, like drinking. There are other ways to expand your consciousness and actually come out of it and talk with your friends in a way you never have before. It will open you up, which is what I think is what alcohol doesn't do.” (22:35) “We go through these peaks and valleys when it comes to how stress comes about. So how can we make the valley less low? That is why exposing yourself to these stressors, like cold, like hot, helps to raise that valley point a little bit higher so that when day-to-day stressors come along, we are able to handle them a little bit better.” (25:48)   In This Episode How breathwork has helped people release stress during covid lockdowns or illness (7:10) The positives and differences of exploring breathwork virtually versus in person (11:37) What you need to know to get started and understand the experience of breathwork (14:01) Tips for running your own epic breath working session from the comfort of your own home (21:55) The benefits of cold plunge and sauna when it comes to rewiring your brain (24:21)   Resources Mentioned: Use Promo Code ‘podcast' to get 10% off your order at the Essentially Whole Store Othership App Follow Othership on Instagram   Other Resources: Check out the full show notes page Keep up with everything Dr. Mariza Follow Dr. Mariza on Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | Youtube Podcast production & marketing support by the team at Counterweight Creative   Related Episodes:  Essentially You Episode #326: Powerful Techniques to Feel and Process Your ‘Mess', Including Breathwork, Meditation, and Movement with Ashely Bernardi

Precision medicine is built on a platform of big data, or large data bases that permit analysis of correlations among environmental and personal factors, treatments, and health outcomes.Data bases that once included only paper records now include tissue samples, air and water samples, and more. There's vast potential for significant advances in health care from precision medicine.But existing large data bases tend to be drawn almost entirely from European and Asian populations, limiting the reach of the benefits of precision medicine. Since big data analytics are often hidden from the patient (and sometimes even the clinician), non-representative data also contributes to mistrust in a health care system that has a long history of excluding certain people.Kayte Spector-Bagdady from the Center for Bioethics and Social Sciences in Medicine from the University of Michigan Medical School joins Health Affairs Editor-in-Chief Alan Weil on A Health Podyssey to discuss the representativeness of data banks and what to do about it.Spector-Bagdady and coauthors published a paper in the December 2021 issue of Health Affairs examining the lack of racial and ethnic diversity in data bank recruitment and enrollment at Michigan Medicine, a major academic medical center.They found failures of representation were in part due to recruitment practices and in part due to the disproportionate rate at which black, Asian, and Hispanic patients declined enrollment when offered, relative to non-Hispanic white patients.If you enjoy this interview, order the December 2021 Health Affairs issue.Pre-order the February 2022 Racism and Health issue.Subscribe: RSS | Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Stitcher | Google Podcasts

Fructose and Uric Acid – What Once Helped Us Survive Now Poses an Existential Threat The interest in uric acid, well beyond its role in gout, focusing on its pivotal role in metabolic issues, is expanding rapidly, and globally. Without question, one important reason for this new understanding is the work of Dr. Richard Johnson, professor of medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Dr. Johnson has an exciting new book entitled, Nature Wants Us to be Fat. We will be discussing his new book today on the podcast. As many of you will note, this is Dr. Johnson's second appearance on the program and we will consider this to be an important “part two,” picking up where we left off last time in his brilliant elucidation of this newly discovered, central player in metabolic diseases, uric acid. On a personal note, over the past year I've gotten to know Rick very well, and I absolutely cherish our newfound friendship. I also explore uric acid it in my new book, Drop Acid, but to be clear, the incredible body of research belongs to Dr. Johnson. And this is the reason that readers of my new book will note that it is dedicated to Dr. Johnson as my way of honoring him for his incredible body of research that clearly is helping, and will continue to help so many people moving forward. Richard J. Johnson, M.D. has been a practicing physician and clinical scientist for over 25 years. He is internationally recognized for his seminal work on the role of sugar and its component fructose, in obesity and diabetes. His work has also suggested a fundamental role for uric acid (which is generated during fructose metabolism) in the metabolic syndrome. Dr Johnson is a prolific scientist with research that has been funded by the National Institute of Health since the 1980s. He is a member of the American Society for Clinical Investigation and has published over 700 papers, lectured in over 45 countries, and is a highly cited scientist. He previously authored The Sugar Fix with Timothy Gower in 2008 (Rodale) and The Fat Switch in 2012. He is currently a Professor of Medicine at the University of Colorado in Denver. He lives in Aurora, Colorado with his wife, Olga, children, Ricky and Tracy, and two miniature golden doodles, Charlie Brown and Apollo 11.

Welcome  to Difficult Conversations with Dr. Anthony Orsini.  On today's episode we will be talking about High Performance Medicine. I have the pleasure of having as my guest, Brian Ferguson, who is the founder and CEO of Arena Labs, a company that has pioneered the field of High Performance Medicine.  Before founding Arena Labs, Brian served in the military as a Navy SEAL Officer.  Aside from his duties at the tactical level, he worked with senior leaders to understand the impact of accelerating technology on the modern battlefield.  Brian spent his career working in high performance organizations, learning from leaders and decision makers in the U.S. national security, the military, and technology which helped him build Arena Labs. Brian and Arena Labs are on a mission to re-imagine healthcare, training doctors and nurses as elite performers by investigating clinicians with the same training tools and technology as Navy SEALS, Olympic athletes, and creative masters. Arena Labs believes hospitals can reduce burnout and provide healthcare teams with the ability to flourish in the face of a demanding stressful career.  We start out getting to know who Brian Ferguson is, how he became a Navy SEAL, the story behind Arena Labs, and the toolkit he developed to help physicians and nurses manage a stressful high consequence environment. He tells us about WHOOP, who they've partnered with to provide a wearable sensor and explains how they use it. We learn more about Arena Labs long-term goal and how Brian would love to see a world where healthcare sees them as a trusted, necessary partner for every clinician in the world, helping them understand their biomarkers, improve their sleep, and how to think about the tools for dealing with stress  Dr. Orsini talks about the importance of data for hospitals with nurses and physicians.  Brian explains how in special operations and pro sports, modern technology and data have made us smarter in understanding the human system. He uses an analogy of concussion protocols in pro sport and military. Arena Labs number one value is humility, and Brian elaborates how they can provide clinicians with the toolkit to feel more confident in the face of stress. Brian shares some valuable tips on how to get through a stressful situation,    We end with Brian explaining what happened in the tale of two operating rooms, and he shares two difficult conversations he's had and how he navigated through them.

Through her New York City practice, she has helped thousands of patients lose weight and live healthier lives. Dr. Sowa also holds an appointment as a Clinical Instructor in Medicine at the New York University School of Medicine. Outside of her practice, she enjoys communicating health messages to the public through print and television.

[04:40] Why Are 88% of Americans Metabolically Inflexible? So, Dr. Sowa says the solution is actually pretty straightforward. You can reverse type 2 diabetes; again, it is reversible! Many people think a low-carb and high-fat diet will give you a heart attack or a stroke; that's simply not true. The three macronutrients are carbohydrates, protein, and fat. Out of those three macronutrients, carbohydrates will spike glucose and insulin the most. It makes total sense that we should eat more protein and fat to reverse high insulin. [16:45] What Is An Optimal Range For Fasting Insulin? Optimal is usually under five. Even up to eight is okay for fasting insulin. Anything higher than eight means your body is making too much insulin in response to carbohydrates. When Dr. Sowa does bloodwork, she's looking for metabolic syndrome. Plus, Dr. Sowa wants to look for vitamin deficiencies. Learn more about the kits that Dr. Sowa offers here: https://lddy.no/13m4s Use ketokamp at checkout for 10% off your entire order. [20:50] How Often Should Someone Retest Their Markers? You should test once a quarter. If you are embarking on a new lifestyle change, Dr. Sowa says to test right away. That way, you have the data. Once you start eating keto, then you can see what improves. Your markers are a better victory than what you see on the scale. [24:20] How Dr. Sowa Wants To Help People With Polycystic Ovary Syndrome PCOS is a disease of insulin resistance in the majority of cases. For years, the medical community has gone about treating this in the wrong way. Up to 50% of women with PCOS will go on to develop type two diabetes by the time they're 40. Women with PCOS can make themselves feel better by following a low carbohydrate diet. Sowa developed a kit to help women get a diagnosis. It usually takes women five years and three doctors to understand their diagnosis. [28:10] Why Dr. Sowa Is A Big Fan of Intermittent Fasting   Fasting will reset your hormones. Plus, fasting is a great way to understand your relationship with food and hunger. Remember, you don't have to eat every two hours. In the beginning, it's not necessarily about eating less; it's just about eating less often.   [31:10] Why Dr. Sowa Loves Walking After A Meal Walk after a meal, so your muscles have the ability to take up any glucose. We should be moving right after we eat to take up any free glucose and use it for energy instead of fat storage. Five minutes will make a difference! The sweet spot would be fifteen to twenty minutes. [34:10] How Important Is Quality Sleep Each Night? If you don't get good sleep, sleep, you will be hungry and crave carbohydrates. Good quality and consistent sleep will keep your cortisol levels down. When cortisol spikes from poor sleep, the hunger hormone will also spike. Plus, you will get a spike in insulin. When insulin is high, it will drive hunger. One of the silent epidemics in our country is sleep apnea, where people cannot get good sleep no matter how hard they try. Luckily, Dr. Sowa will screen for sleep apnea. [40:30] The Supplements That Dr. Sowa Recommends Sowa is a fan of her GetSoBalanced supplement. This formula is great for a number of things: Weight management Healthy metabolism Blood sugar regulation Insulin sensitivity Healthy cholesterol levels PCOS symptom relief Gastrointestinal microbial balance Check out GetSoBalanced here: https://lddy.no/13m4s Use ketokamp at checkout for 10% off your entire order.  Also, Dr. Sow loves myo-inositol; it is a natural alternative to Metformin. It's great for both men and women. [46:05] What To Do Before You Take A SoWell Test First, chug water! Next, warm up your hands. Run them under warm water and get the circulation going. Sometimes, you have to massage the finger to get blood to come out. Once you prick your finger, trust the process. AND MUCH MORE!
