Relentless Health Value
Encore! EP308: How Financial Toxicity Wreaks Havoc on Value-Based Payment Success, With Mark Fendrick, MD

Relentless Health Value

I wanted to remind everyone about this show from last year because it's becoming increasingly relevant. We have this weird thing going on where everybody seems to be talking about physician incentives and payments and financial implications but so often disregards patient incentives and payments and financial implications. Consider that we're at a place in the time-space continuum where it is inarguable that financial toxicity has become clinical toxicity. Patients are increasingly in huge numbers abandoning care, splitting pills, doing all kinds of things to save money that are clinically toxic. And these are patients with “good insurance” that we are talking about here. So, here's a role play: Provider organization is actually paying doctors for outcomes. In wanders a patient with a huge deductible. Doc says, “Wow, Patient … so important that you take your insulin or med as directed or get a follow-up on that scary colonoscopy finding.” Patient says, “Sorry, Doc. Can't afford it.” And the doc gets dinged because the patient outcomes are avoidably poor. That's what this show with Dr. Mark Fendrick digs into: aligning patient incentives (aka benefit designs etc) with value-based payments on the provider side. And with that, here's your encore: And here I thought I knew a lot about value-based care. In this healthcare podcast, I am speaking with Mark Fendrick, MD, who is the director over at the University of Michigan Center for Value-Based Insurance Design. This conversation is for those of you who already know pretty much about value-based care concepts. If you do not, I'd go back and listen to, say, Encore! EP206, with Ashok Subramanian, before this one.   Dr. Fendrick talks in this healthcare podcast about what it takes for value-based care to happen in the real world. No kidding, it's about making sure that reimbursement is aligned with good things (no great surprise there). But two light bulb moments I had in this conversation with Dr. Fendrick: At the beginning of the year, how many doctors and nurses, inspired to do the right thing, have told their patients with diabetes, say, to go get an eye exam to check for diabetic retinopathy? No one would disagree that this is definitely a good idea. Diabetic retinopathy causes blindness. But here's the reality of that conversation. Doc says, “Go get an eye exam.” And patient says, “I can't. My deductible is huge, and I can't afford it.” So, the patient doesn't get the follow-up care and winds up in the hospital or blind. And the doctor gets dinged on his or her quality scores. Suboptimal outcomes all around, I'd say. This also happens on the pharmacy side of the equation, but I think a lot of us are a little bit more familiar with that scenario—like type 1 diabetics who can't afford to pick up their insulin because of a Medicare Part D or commercial deductible that they haven't met yet. I just never really connected the dots back to the provider getting black marks because their patient has a benefit design that's not aligned with the quality measures. In a majority of benefit designs, consumer price sharing is based not on the value of the service but on how expensive the service just happens to be. Wow! So, we're trying to get our plan members to be consumers and use the power of their wallets to make good healthcare choices. And what we're really doing is driving them toward cheap things or no care and discouraging them from indulging—and I say that sarcastically—in expensive things. But the expensive things might be the high-value care, and the relatively cheap things might be crap that's fully unnecessary or harmful and, over a whole population, adds up to a lot of zeros. Healthcare is not like a consumer market where the expensive things are usually a better version of the cheap things. For all you economists out there, you don't want the demand curve to be elastic when what's cheap and what's expensive has no correlation to quality or necessity. Nobody should be super flabbergasted when a $35 cure-all supplement peddled on YouTube makes some random influencer a millionaire. That's how supply and demand works. Much to ponder in this episode.

Mark Fendrick, MD, is a professor of internal medicine in the School of Medicine and a professor of health management and policy in the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan. Dr. Fendrick received a bachelor's degree in economics and chemistry from the University of Pennsylvania and his medical degree from Harvard Medical School. He completed his residency in internal medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, where he was a fellow in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars Program. Dr. Fendrick conceptualized and coined the term Value-Based Insurance Design (V-BID) and currently directs the V-BID Center at the University of Michigan (vbidcenter.org), the leading advocate for development, implementation, and evaluation of innovative health benefit plans. His research focuses on how clinician payment and consumer engagement initiatives impact access to care, quality of care, and healthcare costs. Dr. Fendrick has authored over 250 articles and book chapters and has received numerous awards for the creation and implementation of value-based insurance design. His perspective and understanding of clinical and economic issues have fostered collaborations with numerous government agencies, health plans, professional societies, and healthcare companies.   Dr. Fendrick is an elected member of the National Academy of Medicine (formerly IOM), serves on the Medicare Coverage Advisory Committee, and has been invited to present testimony before the US Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions; the US House of Representatives Ways and Means Subcommittee on Health; and the US Senate Committee on Armed Services Subcommittee on Personnel. 05:00 Is back surgery high-value care? 05:51 If care is patient to patient, how is high-value care decided upon? 06:40 “Flintstones delivery: We have to move from the sledgehammer to the scalpel.” 11:14 “Almost all of the services that we recommend to reduce cost sharing … do not save money.” 12:30 “I didn't go to medical school to learn how to save people money.” 17:03 “When a patient and their clinician agree … the patient should be able to get that [service] easily, and the clinician should be paid generously.” 18:01 “When patients and providers are aligned, they do much better.” 19:59 What services are deemed high value, and what services should be pre-deductible? 21:50 “Are primary care visits high value? … The answer is, it depends.” 25:55 What are V-BID's core pillars to address value-based care? 28:04 How does Dr. Fendrick's method of value-based care and reimbursement actually enable better consumerism? 29:51 What do providers think about changing reimbursement on low-value and high-value care? 30:58 “We have incentives that are run amok.” 32:12 EP176 with Dr. Robert Pearl. 32:49 “It's all about incentives.” 33:43 “You do have the funding; you just have to have the courage.” You can learn more at vbidcenter.org.

The Effect of lncRNAs on Chromatin and Gene Regulation (John Rinn)

In this episode of the Epigenetics Podcast, we caught up with John Rinn from the University of Colorado in Boulder to talk about his work on the role of lncRNAs in gene expression and nuclear organization. The Rinn Lab pioneered the approach of screening the human genome for long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs). More recently, the lab has shifted focus from measuring the number of lncRNAs to finding lncRNAs that have a distinct biological function in human health and disease. One example of such a lncRNA is FIRRE, which is present in all animals, however the sequence is not conserved, except for in primates. FIRRE contains many interesting features, such as repeat sequences and CTCF binding sites. In absence of FIRRE, defects in the immune system can be observed and also some brain defects may also be observed.   References Carter, T., Singh, M., Dumbovic, G., Chobirko, J. D., Rinn, J.

The Secrets of Masonic Washington: A Guidebook to Signs, Symbols, and Ceremonies at the Origin of America's Capital by James WassermanIn this guide to the Masonic underpinnings of America's capital, James Wasserman reveals the esoteric symbols and the spiritual and visionary ideas that lie hidden in the buildings, monuments, and physical layout of Washington, D.C. His walking tour of these Masonic sites includes both the expected and unexpected--from the Lincoln Memorial and the Capitol Building to the Federal Reserve complex, National Academy of Sciences, and the Library of Congress. Each location includes descriptions, interpretations, and explanations of the Masonic symbols and ritualistic meanings hidden within its structure, all illustrated with contemporary color and historic black-and-white photographs. Wasserman explains the purpose behind putting these symbols and Masonic designs into the capital and how all these monuments fit into the spiritual vision held by the founding fathers. He reveals the prominent role that Freemasonry played in the 18th-century Enlightenment movement and shows how in the New World of America, free of monarchy and aristocracy, the ideas of the Enlightenment were able to flourish. This illustrated guidebook to the Masonic secrets of Washington, D.C., provides valuable insights on the founding of America. It will be welcomed by students of esoteric art and symbolism, admirers of American history, and devotees of Dan Brown novels and National Treasure movies.http://www.jameswassermanbooks.comHosted by Dr. Bob Hieronimus.  Produced by Hieronimus & Co. for 21st Century Radio®.  Edited version provided to Nightlight Radio with permission.

Dr. Shannon Westin discusses the topic of climate change in the operating room with Dr. Anaeze Offodile and Dr. Elizabeth Yates.   TRANSCRIPT   The guest on this podcast episode has no disclosures to declare. Dr. Shannon Westin: Hey everybody! Welcome back to JCO After Hours, a podcast where we get a little bit more intense, a little bit more specific about articles that are published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. My name is Shannon Westin, and it is my honor to serve as the social media editor for the JCO. I'm an associate professor at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and a gynecologic oncologist. Today, we are going to be discussing a really exciting paper which was published in the March online JCO. It's a Comments and Controversies piece called, “Prescriptions for Mitigating Climate Change-Related Externalities in Cancer Care: A Surgeon's Perspective.” I have several guests with me today, none of whom have any conflict of interest. The first is Dr. Anaeze Offodile, who is an assistant professor in the Department of Plastic Surgery, as well as in the Department of Health Services Research at the University of Texas, MD Anderson Cancer Center. He also serves as the Executive Director of Clinical Transformation at MD Anderson. He is the senior author on the paper, so he will have a lot to offer here. But we're also accompanied by Dr. Elizabeth Yates, who has the title of clinical fellow in surgery at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, but tells me she's a rising PGY 4 resident, which makes it even more impressive that she is already published on the role of the surgeon in climate change. And so, we're so honored to have her with us today to share her perspectives as well. Welcome both of you. Thank you for being here. Dr. Anaeze Offodile: Happy to be here. Dr. Elizabeth Yates: Thanks so much for having us. Dr. Shannon Westin: So, I'm definitely someone that has been interested in climate change for some time, and living in the state of Texas, does what I can to rally the political climate here. But I was really intrigued because I never really thought of it in terms of what we do in the operating room. So, I'd love for each of you to give just a little bit of background on your careers and how you kind of got involved with this idea of climate change and environmental sustainability here in the operating room and in medical care? Do you want to start, Anaeze? Dr. Anaeze Offodile: Liz can start first. Dr. Elizabeth Yates: Absolutely! So, I actually came at it from an interesting perspective, I have always been interested in issues of resource distribution and disparities. And when I was in medical school, I started to think about these issues pretty deeply, especially because my younger brother was at the University of Michigan at the same time as I was, studying Environmental Science for his undergraduate and kept nagging in my ear about this problem of climate change and why I wasn't thinking about it as a doctor. And with my kind of ongoing interest in disparities, I came to realize and become compassionate about the role that climate change will play in driving the existing disparities that we see both nationally and globally. And I realized that nobody was really talking about it yet, at least in the surgical field. It had started to permeate some of the medicine and subspecialties, but really, there wasn't a conversation in our world yet. It became all the more relevant to me because I did see this dual relationship where not only do the downstream factors of climate change, like heat waves and major storms, impact our patients' access to care and their outcomes, but on the flip side, we contribute to climate change, because the delivery of surgical care, particularly in high-income countries, is so energy intensive and so wasteful. And so, I felt like if any clinician has a role in this space to really lead and change the narrative, it would be us as surgeons. Dr. Anaeze Offodile: It's really interesting to listen to Liz's journey to this issue, which affects all of us. I came at it from the micro level, bottom-up level. So, when I was a fellow about four years ago, under the mentorship of Nancy Perrier, we launched and have since scaled, I don't know if you're aware of this, Shannon, so the 'Know Your Costs' program. For the audience, this is a project at MD Anderson where we really try to minimize cost variability and waste in the operating room by providing a feedback tool to surgeons that sort of made them more conscious about the spending directly attributable to disposable supplies, implants, devices in the OR. One direct outcome of the project that we found was that actually narrowing the variability in these disposable instruments, supplies implants surely had no impact on the outcome, but also got sort of the cost structure of what we do in the OR down. So, that's the value-based care proposition. And in doing this work as I dug more into literature, I learned as we so highlighted in the article, my co-authors and I, that actually the perioperative environment is a major driver of waste in the hospital setting. I think that recognition certainly led to this work, which we're very glad that JCO looked upon favorably to champion. Dr. Shannon Westin: Yeah, I love 'Know Your Cost'. My fellows make fun of me, because I always take the electrosurgery devices, they're the cheapest. And they're like, ‘Oh, you're using the Costco version!'. And I'm like, ‘You know what? We're reducing costs. So, just hold it a little bit longer there, and you're gonna be fine.' So, I was really struck by one of the first sentences out of the gate in your commentary that the healthcare industry accounts for roughly 8.5% of total GHG emissions in the United States, the most in the world in per-capita and absolute terms, I mean, to me, that was so eye-opening within the first few sentences. What are some of the other major takeaways that you hope that readers of the JCO get from this piece? Anaeze, I think we can start with you and then I'd be interested to hear your perspectives as well, Liz? Dr. Anaeze Offodile: So, I will say, a couple of high-level, and I can touch on the sort of specific prescription that we put forward, but I think the big takeaway is, one, is healthcare has a certain moral imperative to keep our contributions to sort of environmental sustainability, greenhouse gas emissions, to control that, there's a moral imperative to this work, right? One, climate change effects are differential. So, the vulnerable populations, like Liz said, tend to suffer the worst. So, when you think about communities and countries in the global south, they bear the brunt of this, not industrialized nations. And number two, our activity directly maps to greenhouse gas emissions. And as surgeons, the relationship is much more direct. So, carbon-intensive procedures like the robot, the perioperative environment, and the supplies, the waste, and the supply chain that sort of feeds into that. So, those are the things high-level that I want to call out. And many ways this paper is intended to start a conversation that will be ongoing amongst the community, the academy, and I'll say in both surgical and medical respect: to what extent do we take ownership of this problem and contribute to the meaningful solutions of the problems? And I can certainly talk about some of the recommendations we put forward, but I think that's the key takeaway. Dr. Elizabeth Yates: Yeah, as not an author, but a reader of this paper. I really thought it summarized the high-level ideas, and really did serve as a conversation starter in the best way. What I really liked, and I try to strive for in my own work at our hospital, and we implement sustainability initiatives, was the perspective that you took coming from more of a cost-saving perspective initially, because I think people have a misconception if they do ever think about sustainability and care delivery, that somehow quality has to be compromised for sustainability - to go green, you have to do less - and that's not necessarily true. And you really highlighted a lot of opportunities in the four domains you emphasize in this paper about how you can change the way your system works, or the choices you make, for the devices you use or the energy supply, without actually compromising outcomes for patients, that we can maintain a high level of quality that makes them smarter choices for our systems to also be more sustainable. And then a lot of the time there are cost savings. It could be a triple win but we just need to put more time and effort into the surgical world thinking about these issues. Dr. Anaeze Offodile: Liz, thank you so much. What we tried to articulate was, there is no trade-off between planetary health and value-based care and high-quality care. I think those two are actually synergistic, and certainly mutually reinforcing. So, that's the one thing we tried to do. I'm glad it came out to push forward. Dr. Shannon Westin: I was joking about our bipolar use and such, but that's really what I'm trying to teach our fellows is that you can do the right work with an instrument that doesn't cost as much. And in this case, the robot is perfect. I was reading that as a robotic surgeon who also does laparoscopy and I thought, ‘Gosh! When I'm making these decisions, this is such a trickle-down effect.' And so, I really do think that I'm interested in strategies to offset those things. Because sometimes, for us in gynecologic oncology, the robot is a superior tool as far as visualization and also surgeon back pain and such. But you really have to understand that trade-off or what else you're impacting. So, I guess, what can we do with the framework of this piece in mind, what can the clinical care providers really do across the country to meaningfully address climate change and improve overall healthcare sustainability? Dr. Anaeze Offodile: So, I will talk from the surgical perspective and maybe I'll point to Liz for a broader outlook on this, but we touched on four main buckets or domains of sub-activity. So, one is the OR environment, right? Thinking about the type of anesthetic gasses that we use, thinking about energy efficient lighting, thinking about the heating ventilation AC, HVAC, can we sort of bake in preventative maintenance on a scheduled time, and using things called setbacks. So, for instance, don't have it run overnight when no one is using the OR. For the most part, there are always emergency cases, but when there's low foot traffic, like nighttime, could we not have the HVAC running during that time period. So, some things like I'll say, low hanging fruit that we can do in respect to the OR environment. And as we think about building new ORs in new hospitals, let's bake in sort of an environmental impact assessment as you sort of commissioned these new environments. So, that's one. Number two, the supply chain and thinking about streamlining the disposables, the gowns, the implants that we use, and really thinking about the procurement and sourcing of these things, taking a climate change lens to picking vendors, picking partners, almost sort of requesting an audit for these vendors with respect to how they create these goods that are sort of being engineered for the environment. The third thing is actually waste. And thinking about sort of the amount of waste that comes from the cost of surgical care – Can we lean more towards reusable as opposed to disposables? Can we think about reprocessing devices sort of like, the world is a circular economy now? Can we think about those types of initiatives with respect to waste? And the last two are value-based care, specifically thinking about low-value surgical care, really that's another way of saying activity that doesn't track to meaningful clinical outcomes. So, that activity, if we're to reframe it , creates carbon that worsens our greenhouse gas emissions, but doesn't track to any meaningful benefit to patients' society. So, low-value care, de-escalating that, or de-implementing that certainly could help with our greenhouse gas profile. And lastly, COVID has been a major force in functioning telemedicine. Can we think about telemedicine in a way that optimizes traffic, and transportation, while keeping cost structure down and thinking about greenhouse gas emissions? So, those are the four or five main elements that we've sort of proposed in our paper. I'll say pieces of this can be contextualized in a medical context. Waste can be put in the medical oncology lens as is virtual care, and as is low-value practices. So, that's how we thought about it for this paper. Dr. Elizabeth Yates: It really nicely summed up the categories of areas for implementation. So, I think I'll keep my comments focused, one, on what does it mean to actually implement that kind of work, and then scale back and what can we do, as you highlighted more broadly as clinicians. But as someone who's really started this work, and we initiated what we call 'Watching Our Waste' program across our procedural spaces at our hospital, and working with my mentor, Dr. Winn who's a vascular surgeon has been really beneficial, because having a clinical voice start to push and champion these ideas, is really meaningful. And when it doesn't come from the administration or top down, it feels a lot more homegrown, and people accept it a lot more quickly on the clinical side, rather than an eco-green team being purely administrators and people who work behind desks. You know, having boots on the ground, saying that this is important, and champion ways to integrate it into our workflow without compromising efficiency or quality of care has been really meaningful. And for anyone who's starting these initiatives, I would say the gateway for anyone who wants to really tackle this, I would recommend a waste audit. Just start with your floor, your OR, whatever your clinical area practice is, your outpatient clinic, and see what kind of waste you make in a day. The efforts you put towards that in terms of meeting your environmental services people, meeting Environmental Affairs, going through the trash, understanding what your use of various supplies is, gives you so much information and such a strong foundation as an easy thing to do as a first step and you'll know where to go from there. It'll really guide your next steps. And as you scale out, and if you get more involved in this work, what I've come to find is the administrators are looking for a clinical voice. There's the policy being pushed at a national level, to start really looking at healthcare and its carbon emissions, and there isn't a lot of expertise, and making sure that this kind of effort and these policies and the implementation of more sustainable practices align with clinical care is a priority and a growing one at the hospital level. And they need clinical voices to actually understand how this is going to work and move this forward and in an effective way. So, if you're interested, I would just highlight that this is an opportune time to get involved. Dr. Anaeze Offodile: Can I make one somewhat controversial comment, I hope it's not that controversial. You know, Shannon, as you think about the demographic shifts in the next 15 years, millennials will be the dominant healthcare workforce and the dominant patient population, right? And as you think about awareness, I will say, as you go down in the age levels, I'll say anxiety, apprehension, and more optimism increase as you go down. So, as this population ages into the workforce and the patient mix, I will reckon that they'll begin to demand more of these initiatives from their health systems, both, like I mentioned, first of all, the moral imperative, but also, as most hospitals are the biggest employers in most towns in this country. So, I think there'll be a clarion call that gets louder and louder and louder and louder. So, in many ways, I think beginning to think about these issues now is probably the way to go. And in many ways feels inevitable to me. Dr. Elizabeth Yates: There's some great data to back that up. If anyone's interested, the Yale Center - I have no affiliation, this is a purely altruistic endorsement - but the Yale Center for Climate Change Communication has really impressive data that completely backs up everything that Anaeze has just said, he couldn't be more spot on. Dr. Shannon Westin: So, we need to be focusing on this. And I guess, balancing on that kind of thinking of the upcoming generation, clinicians, and patients, is there an opportunity to build a career that is a balance between climate change and clinical care? Dr. Elizabeth Yates: I sure hope so! Dr. Shannon Westin: Liz, this is your thing, right? Dr. Elizabeth Yates: There better be! Dr. Shannon Westin: But how do we operationalize this better? Is this something that should be part of the medical school curriculum? Where can we make an impact? Obviously, you all are doing this great work, but how can we get beyond our centers? Dr. Elizabeth Yates: I think one of the things I've learned in my two, kind of, research years during my residency, and really focusing deeply on this topic, is that there's a real dearth of data-driven work in this space both on quantifying the impacts of climate change downstream on our patient outcomes. And on the flip side, how to make surgical care or medical care more sustainable broadly. There are methods that are incredibly applicable to this space. One that many sustainability providers will know about is called lifecycle analysis, where you can actually quantify your impact on carbon emissions with different changes in which products you buy, and how you implement your systems. And being able to produce that kind of data for our clinical providers, whether it be in your outpatient clinic, or in the OR, so you can make more informed choices that align quality with sustainability is a really important next step. And understanding how to implement that kind of research needs a clinical voice. It can't just be these kinds of environmental practitioners who don't have a sense of how clinical care works on a real day-to-day basis. So, having an increasing number of providers who are interested in this overlap to inform that research, I think, I sure hope, is going to be a valuable contribution to the academic literature because I'm slowly building my career upon it, and it's quite the gamble. Dr. Anaeze Offodile: No, it's a pretty safe bet, Liz. I think as a clinician, academic or community-based, late early career at this point, so the way I think about moving forward will be one, Liz just talk about scholarship, right? Both empirical data-driven work, as in thought pieces, like the JCO paper that has a policy inclination, I think we need much, much more of it. And there's increasing activity in this space, but nowhere near commensurate with the gravity of the problem. So, that's number one. I think number two is actually just advocacy, right? In the same way that surgeons are very compelling and effective advocates for gun violence, for COVID, and related science for health equity. I do think there's a huge space for physicians, surgeons, medical oncologists, and primary care doctors in this space from an advocacy standpoint. I think some of the more productive arguments have touched on the fact that, typically in healthcare, the largest employers, I mean, healthcare is, paid on the year, almost 20% of our GDP, of our economic output, is a huge chunk of US healthcare, so, we have viable legitimacy to sort of have this bully pulpit on this issue. That's number two. And number three is about clinical practice. I think one thing about climate change is the ultimate tragedy of the commons, right? So, I'm like, how can one person make a difference? I think if everyone has a position, nothing's going to happen. I think the key thing is that we all begin to move in this direction, as I like to say, ‘Incremental change is not insignificant change.' There's certainly the proverbial 'burning platform' right now on this topic. I think as we begin to have our clinical practice, each of us individually be more aligned either from an adaptation standpoint or mitigation standpoint, where we're sort of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. I think that is a huge, huge benefit to us for future generations. So, let's hope with the three main ways practice, advocacy, and scholarship get built into our careers. Dr. Shannon Westin: Yeah, not to get into a total mentoring conversation here but Liz, there's a huge opportunity for policy and through our own home organization, ASCO, there's a policy fellowship, there are lots of opportunities that I think that you'll find your academic career could be supported by. So, just a little off note. Dr. Elizabeth Yates: I'll preview the recruitment. Dr. Shannon Westin: So, we'll talk about some inspiration as we close this conversation. You guys have kind of peppered this throughout, but maybe just summarize a little bit, what are you doing in your own practice, as well as in your lives, like out of hospital lives to contribute to these efforts? Dr. Elizabeth Yates: I try to live my life with a perspective of sustainability kind of in every aspect, but with an informed perspective because I really do believe that quality of life, just like the quality of care, does not need to be compromised in order to be green. And so, being really informed about what choices in your life and your actual career have a true impact, and an impact that can scale is really important. So, do I try to buy the least plastic that I can? Certainly. Do I kill myself to be completely waste-free? I do not. I try to amplify the need for these kinds of interventions across my own little local network, both socially and wider in my own career. And as I've started to pull this into my workplace, I was apprehensive about what the kind of reaction was going to be from pushing a sustainability perspective. I've been really pleasantly surprised and impressed with how many people in our workplace already, like me, are doing what they can at home, and just don't know how to start in the workplace, especially in a hospital. And so, being that champion, and having that voice to start, wherever you are, whether it be a small project or a big policy initiative, whatever you can take on, I would say is kind of the inspirational next step and as you see the reaction of your colleagues, I hope, like me, you will continue to be inspired to do more. Dr. Shannon Westin: Great! Anaeze? Dr. Anaeze Offodile: So, I'll lead off with a plug. I read this book called The Uninhabitable Earth by David Wallace-Wells. And I thought that book is the most compelling argument that we just think about climate change. It really created a sense of urgency within me. It came out about two and a half, maybe three years ago – compelling read. So, I'll just sort of start off with that. There are many sources that are available now, I think the National Academy of Medicine, they have a grand challenge and a national collaboration on decarbonizing the US healthcare sector, and they have a bunch of resources on their website. So, I'll certainly point many people to that. What I do in my day-to-day life and the way I've thought about this is what behaviors can I entrench in the long term. I think human beings, physicians, in particular, I'd say, we're high resistance pathways, old habits tend to come back to the surface. So, I've really focused in the last few years on embedding certain climate-sensitive practices in my life that I hope to continue moving forward. So, one of them is a) I drive less. Now, it's not super easy in Houston, Shannon, as you are aware, but I happen to live near the light rail. And for the last nine months, I've been taking the train in, every morning to work to and fro. That allows me to zone out. I put a podcast on, ASCO podcast, After Hours. Dr. Shannon Westin: Love it! Love it! Dr. Anaeze Offodile: So, that's one. Number two is just easy. My purchasing choices have a climate lens. So, in many ways, you could say what you buy reveals your preferences like nothing else. So, when I buy a new radio or a new TV, I look for the sticker that says EPA certified. It's a little thing but it's something that I'm able to maintain for the last 2-3 years now. So, I'll say, being informed, changing my commuting habits, I curtail my spending habits, also like the ways I'm just really embedding this into my daily life. Dr. Shannon Westin: That's great! I think there are so many great resources that you guys have mentioned, so, I hope our listeners will check it out. I will put a plug in. I love to compost. It's super easy to do, and you can use it to grow food and beautiful flowers. And so, that is something that my husband and I have been doing for years now. So, another simple little thing. I mean, you can get everything online. It's magical. So, alright guys. Well, this has been incredible. I have so enjoyed getting to chat with both of you and I hope our listeners have the same feeling. Just as a reminder, this article can be found online in the March version of the JCO, “Prescriptions for Mitigating Climate Change-Related Externalities in Cancer Care: A Surgeon's Perspective.” Many thanks to my guests, and you all have a great day.

For six years, the researchers followed 16,010 women who 70 years old or older, and 15,467 completed the final cognitive interviews. The researchers found those women who consumed five servings or more of nuts each week had higher scores on their cognitive testing compared to those who did not consume nuts. The average difference in scores was 0.08 units, which is equivalent to two years of cognition decline during the aging process. The mechanism may be related to the fact that nuts are heart-healthy. And nut consumption has been associated with cardiovascular healthand mortality in other research. Stress accelerates immune aging, study finds University of Southern California, June 13, 2022 Stress—in the form of traumatic events, job strain, everyday stressors and discrimination—accelerates aging of the immune system, potentially increasing a person's risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease and illness from infections such as COVID-19, according to a new USC study. The research, published  in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), could help explain disparities in age-related health, including the unequal toll of the pandemic, and identify possible points for intervention. USC researchers decided to see if they could tease out a connection between lifetime exposure to stress—a known contributor to poor health—and declining vigor in the immune system. As expected, people with higher stress scores had older-seeming immune profiles, with lower percentages of fresh disease fighters and higher percentages of worn-out white blood cells. The association between stressful life events and fewer ready to respond, or naive, T cells remained strong even after controlling for education, smoking, drinking, BMI and race or ethnicity. CoQ10 supplementation associated with lower pro-inflammatory factors in randomized trial Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences (Iran), June 8 2022.  A double-blind trial reported in a recent issue of the International Journal of Vitamin and Nutrition Research found a reduction in markers of inflammation in mildly hypertensive patients given coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) for twelve weeks. Participants who received CoQ10 also experienced an increase in adiponectin: a protein secreted by adipose tissue that has an anti-inflammatory effect and which has been found to be reduced in high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. “Considering that coenzyme Q10 has attracted noticeable attention in recent years for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases and hypertension in regard to its effect on inflammatory factors such as cytokines, it is therefore hypothesized that supplementation with coenzyme Q10 reduces the proinflammatory factors,” write Nasim Bagheri Nesami of Iran's Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences and colleagues. “This study was conducted in order to determine the effects of coenzyme Q10 on proinflammatory factors as well as on adiponectin in patients with mild hypertension.” Sixty men and women were randomized to receive 100 milligrams CoQ10 or a placebo for a twelve week period. Plasma adiponectin, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP, a marker of inflammation) and the cytokines interleukin 2, interleukin6 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha were measured before and after treatment. At the end of the study, participants who received CoQ10 had significant declines in interleukin-6 and hs-CRP compared with levels measured upon enrollment. They also experienced an increase in adiponectin, while levels in the placebo group slightly declined. Probiotics prevent deadly complications of liver disease Govind Ballabh Pant Hospital, New Delhi, India   June 6, 2022 Probiotics are effective in preventing hepatic encephalopathy in patients with cirrhosis of the liver, according to a new study in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology. Hepatic encephalopathy is a deterioration of brain function that is a serious complication of liver disease. “This rigorous new research finds that probiotics modify the gut microbiota to prevent hepatic encephalopathy in patients with cirrhosis of the liver,” said David W. Victor III, MD. “These results offer a safe, well-tolerated and perhaps cheaper alternative to current treatments.” When comparing treatment with probiotics versus placebo, the researchers found that the incidence of hepatic encephalopathy was lower in patients treated with probiotics.  Probiotic supplementation was not associated with any side effects and none of the patients required discontinuation of therapy. These results suggest that probiotics are similar in effectiveness to the current standard of care, lactulose, in the prevention of hepatic encephalopathy, yet they appear to be much better tolerated. The effectiveness of lactulose, a nonabsorbable disaccharide, is limited by side effects (diarrhea, bloating and gas) and a narrow therapeutic window.  Chelation therapy and vitamin supplements cut heart disease risk by over 25% Columbia University, June 9, 2022  A combination of high-dose multivitamins and chelation therapy may protect heart attack survivors from future cardiovascular events and death, according to a multicenter study published in the American Heart Journal. Intravenous chelation, in which the chemical ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) is injected into the bloodstream in order to bind to minerals and help flush them from the body, is an FDA-approved treatment for heavy metal poisoning that was first used during World War I.  “They're all in our environment. Any of us who are of an age to have been exposed to leaded gasoline have lead in our bones. If we get an infusion of EDTA, we'll have lead in our urine. It's just the way it is. And as you get older and become osteoporotic, that lead starts getting released.” In a randomized, double-blind trial, the researchers randomly assigned 1,708 stable heart attack survivors at 134 clinics across the United States to one of four experimental conditions: high-dose oral multivitamins plus chelation, chelation plus a vitamin-mimicking placebo, vitamins plus a chelation-mimicking placebo or double placebo. Participants had to get a 500 cc intravenous infusion once per week for 30 weeks, followed by another 10 infusions spaced two to eight weeks apart. All participants also had to take six large capsules daily. The researchers found that chelation alone led to a statistically significant 18 percent reduction in primary endpoint, relative to placebo. Chelation plus multivitamins led to a 26 percent reduction in risk over placebo. Chelation plus multivitamin also reduced the secondary endpoint by 34 percent, compared with placebo. Diabetic participants benefited even more dramatically. Among diabetics, chelation resulted in a 41 percent reduction in primary endpoint, while chelation plus vitamins resulted in a 51 percent reduction. The rate of all-cause mortality in diabetic patients dropped 43 percent with chelation alone, and the secondary endpoint was also reduced. Natural Pain Killer With Powerful Ability to Remove Blood Clots and Dead Tissue GreenMed Info, June 13th 2022  Serrapeptase, also known as serratiopeptidase or serralysin, is a systemic enzyme, specifically it is a proteolytic enzyme. Serrapeptase was first derived from a species of bacteria found in the intestine of the silkworm. The bacteria, Serratia mercesans E1, produces serrapeptase to help breakdown the silkworm coccoon to free the silk moth. A review study summarized that serrapeptase has immense applications in therapeutic areas which have been validated by several in vitro, in vivo, and clinical studies. “These applications are attributable to its versatile properties including anti-inflammatory, anti-biofilm, analgesic, anti-edemic, and fibrinolytic effects.” Serrapeptase has been used for a wide range of health concerns:  Serrapeptase for Joint Swelling Serrapeptase is effective in reducing post-operative joint swelling in comparison to other therapies such as applying ice.  Serrapeptase Dissolves Blood Clots, Dead Tissue, Biofilms Anticoagulants and antiplatelet drugs are used for managing cardiovascular diseases but they are unable to dissolve an existing blood clot. Serrapeptase dissolves a fibrin clot within a blood vessel.  Studies have shown that serrapeptase can digest dead tissues, blood clots, cysts, biofilm and arterial plaques.  Serrapeptase for Acute or Chronic Ear, Nose and Throat Conditions The Journal of International Medical Research published the results of a study evaluating the efficacy and tolerability of serrapeptase using a double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 193 subjects suffering from acute or chronic ear, nose or throat disorders. Patients treated with serrapeptase reported significant symptom regression within 3 – 4 days. It was concluded that serrapeptase “has anti-inflammatory, anti-oedemic and fibrinolytic activity and acts rapidly on localized inflammation.”  COVID-19 and Chronic Respiratory Conditions A 2021 study, showed, “Proteolytic enzymes can be useful in the treatment of nosocomial, viral, and resistant infections, especially in pediatric and geriatric age groups due to its relative safety, less tolerance and resistance and its synergic effects.”  Physicians have observed many COVID-19 cases with heart problems, kidney problems, and the presence of blood clots. Serrapeptase helps patients with chronic airway disease by reducing coughing and lessening viscosity of sputum. As a natural anticoagulant it interferes with platelet aggregation and the blood coagulation cascade. Serrapeptase has an anti-inflammatory impact on the tissue inflammation that contributes to the blood clot formation.
