Lay of The Land's conversation today is with Afif Ghannoum, a biotech attorney by background and the CEO of BIOHM Health — which he co-founded with his father, Dr. Mahmoud Ghannoum, a leading microbiome researcher and recognized for naming the mycobiome (the body's fungal community). With over 30,000 citations and 500 published papers, Dr. Ghannoum is one of the top 0.5% of cited microbiologists and the top 2% of all scientists across all disciplines and has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) since 1991, including just receiving his latest NIH grant at age 72.Leveraging his own background launching and selling consumer products in over 27,000 stores and licensed IP to companies around the world in addition to holding several biotech patents, Afif partnered with his dad to commercialize his research and science into world-class consumer products through their company, BIOHM Health.With state-of-the-art science and one of the largest microbiome datasets in the world that combines bacterial and fungal sequencing, BIOHM was the first to address the critical link between fungi and bacteria in gut health. Over the last year, BIOHM has expanded its role with some of the largest global ingredient companies to offer a world-class suite of services, including product development leveraging its industry-leading database, bioinformatics, testing, and clinical trial support — their first BIOHM FX probiotic supplement was designed to specifically help reduce digestive plaque found in the gut.BIOHM is currently embarking on a clinical extension directly for medical practitioners and is quickly expanding into retailers across the country, as it not only manages one of the most comprehensive gut health datasets, but also has access to one of the largest collections of fungi strains, second only to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).In late 2022, Afif secured $7.5 million in funding for BIOHM to support their broader vision. BIOHM is a fascinating company based here in Cleveland and I loved learning more about Afif's journey building it — please enjoy my conversation with Afif Ghannoum--Connect with Afif Ghannoum on LinkedIn — https://www.linkedin.com/in/afifghannoum/Follow Afif Ghannoum on Twitter @AfifGhannoum — https://twitter.com/AfifGhannoumLearn more about BIOHM Health — https://www.biohmhealth.com/Follow BIOHM Health on Twitter @biohmhealth — https://twitter.com/biohmhealth--Connect with Jeffrey Stern on LinkedIn — https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeffreypstern/Follow Jeffrey Stern on Twitter @sternJefe — https://twitter.com/sternjefeFollow Lay of The Land on Twitter @podlayofthelandhttps://www.jeffreys.page/
Run to the Top Podcast | The Ultimate Guide to Running
Do you ever wonder why some runners are better at shorter distances while others are far more suited to longer distances? Well, a lot of this has to do with the type of muscle fibers you're predisposed to having. But, what many runners don't know is that there are ways to train to specifically target certain muscle fiber types and thus improve our weaknesses. In today's episode, Coach Andie is going to take an in-depth look at muscle fibers to better understand how they influence your training. You'll learn what the different muscle fiber types are and what they do and how to specifically target each in your training. Now, don't worry, you don't need a science degree to follow along, she'll keep it simple.

This week's show brought to you by: Delta G Ketones have been one of the most well-researched chemicals when it comes to endurance performance. Their only downside is that it typically takes 2 days of fasting for your body to produce them in quantities that would help your performance But, thanks to deltaG and collaborations from the US Military and researchers from NIH and the University of Oxford, they've developed a ketone drink that can boost your ketone levels to those seen after 2 days of fasting in just 20 minutes. The academic literature on the effectiveness of ketones for running performance is overwhelming.

Mobility Wall We all know how important foam rolling is for staying injury-free and just plain feeling better for every run. But, let's face it, many of us skip it because clearing out space on the floor feels like too much work, the pressure is too painful and difficult to control, or you can't seem to hit the right spots. That's why I was so amazed when I saw the door-mounted foam roller from Mobility Wall. The Mobility Wall device mounts to your doorframe in just a few seconds and is easy to move up and down the frame in just a few seconds. Not only does this get you off the ground and ready to foam roll in just a few seconds, it also allows you to easily hit muscles in your neck and shoulders that aren't possible with a traditional foam roller. Even better, because you're off the ground, you don't have to control gravity to adjust the pressure. You simply use upward and inward pressure, which is much easier to control. The days of painful foam rolling are over. If you've been wanting to get more consistent with your injury-prevention work this year, the Mobility Wall foam roller will be a game changer. I can't believe how much more I've been foam rolling since I started using it. Plus, we've got a special offer for you. Just go to mobilitywall.com/RTTT or enter RTTT at checkout for 20% off your first order. Plus, it comes with a free app that gives you video instructions on exactly how to hit every area.

Join Dr. Jeffrey Gladden, Steve Reiter and Dr. Paul Harch in this episode of the Gladden Longevity podcast. Paul G. Harch, M.D. is a clinical private practice and academic physician who made a discovery in 1989 treating divers with chronic brain decompression illness. He found that the wounds in these divers' brains were similar to chronic extremity wounds, but they were only responsive to a non-traditional dose of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. In 2004, based on the life-extending outcomes of treating patients with dementia, he proposed the longevity potential of HBOT to the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. In March 2020, he proved the efficacy of HBOT in mild TBI persistent post-concussion syndrome in a randomized controlled trial and proposed HBOT application to COVID. Now in its 3rd edition, HBOT is explained as an epigenetic therapy with expected revolutionary effects on medicine, neurology, and longevity. In this episode, they talk about HBOT as a dual-component drug, the primary target of HBOT, and how HBOT is a treatment for wounds and inflammatory conditions in any location and of any duration. Do you know the medical benefits of HBOT? Listen to find out more. Listen to this episode to learn about making a 100 the new 30, and living beyond 120! Dr. Gladden considers Dr. Harch to be one of the fathers or grandfathers of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (00:58). Dr. Harch explains what drew him into researching hyperbaric oxygen therapy. (1:35) Dr. Harch discusses why hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used for scuba divers or diving medicine. (3:05) Dr. Harch mentions how important the first hour is when using hyperbaric oxygen to treat injuries divers may have. (6:05) Dr. Gladden shares that molecular hydrogen is a way to modulate reperfusion injury. (7:00) Dr. Harch notes that if you can give the hyperbaric treatment in the first hour, it totally inhibits those attachment molecules on the white blood cells from expressing themselves. (9:45) Dr. Harch says all coastal facilities that treat divers do not get the same results the US Navy does. (11:15) Dr. Gladden infers that everything is in its own balance. (13:10) Dr. Harch clarifies that barometric pressure is a separate entity from oxygen. (15:14) Dr. Harch mentions that only a few people have used dosing as a primary method of treatment. (18:15) Dr. Harch elaborates on hypoxia-inducing factors. (21:44) Dr. Harch says there is a whole literature now on hyperbaric oxygen preconditioning. (23:08) Dr. Harch expresses that if you give two hyperbaric treatments a night before cardiac surgery, you significantly reduce the cognitive insult that results after surgery. (25:40) Focuscalm.com uses the promo code longevity10 to get a 10 percent discount. (28:55) Dr. Harch argues that doctors are trained and taught reimbursable medicine. (30:17) Dr. Harch discloses that so much of brain diseases are caused by problems in the white matter. (33:07) Dr. Harch reveals his treatment approach. (36:45) Dr. Harch specifies that he has treated 130 drowned children over the years. (39:50) Dr. Harch recounts his interaction with the FDA some time back. (43:23) Dr. Harch gives reasons why people may not benefit from hyperbaric chambers. (46:33) Dr. Gladden points out how inflammation becomes a problem as people get older. (49:15) Dr. Harch recalls going to the NIH and FDA to seek funding for studies. (52:25) Dr. Harch testifies that he has treated many dementia patients and shares that hyperbaric treatment prolongs their lives. (57:05) Dr. Harch confesses that hyperbaric oxygen has limited or no effect on ALS by itself.

Synopsis: Joel Schneider, Ph.D. and Robert Kotin, Ph.D. are the President & CEO and Founder & Chief Technology Advisor, respectively, of Carbon Biosciences, an emerging leader in the development of novel parvovirus-derived gene therapies. Joel and Robert sit down with host Rahul Chaturvedi to discuss the arc of their careers, how the AAV field has changed over the last decade, and how they approach building out their team at Carbon. They also talk about Carbon's focus on cystic fibrosis and the implications of The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation investing in their Series A. Finally, they both weigh in on what excites them when thinking about the future of gene therapy. Biographies: Dr. Joel Schneider joined Carbon as CEO in 2022, after serving as Chief Operating Officer at Solid Biosciences. As Solid's first employee, he played an instrumental role in building the company's unique disease-focused business model. Dr. Schneider is an accomplished biosciences executive with a track record of achievement in identifying, developing, and financing high potential therapeutic modalities and has diverse leadership experiences across R&D, technical and corporate operations, and corporate development organizations. Dr. Schneider holds a Ph.D. from Rutgers University and an undergraduate degree from Brandeis University and is the author of numerous peer-reviewed articles related to Duchenne and stem cell biology. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University in the Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology, where he characterized and developed the small molecules that enhance skeletal muscle regeneration. Dr. Robert Kotin has been a leader in adeno-associated virus (AAV) research for 35 years, focusing on the molecular biology of the virus's non-structural proteins and then leveraging this understanding to develop novel AAV vectors for somatic cell gene therapy. Beginning as a postdoctoral fellow at Cornell University Medical Center, Dr. Kotin discovered a common integration site for AAV DNA in human chromosome 19, which he designated AAVS1 locus. He spent most of his career in the Intramural Research Program at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), first as a tenure-track investigator and then as a tenured senior investigator and Head of the Laboratory of Molecular Biology and Gene Therapy. While at the NIH, Dr. Kotin's laboratory invented and developed a scalable recombinant adeno-associated virus (rAAV) production process in Sf9 cells which was licensed by UniQure, ThermoFisher, Voyager, Biomarin, and others and was used to produce Glybera™, the first rAAV product granted regulatory agency approval for sale. Additional research from the Kotin lab resulted in the discovery of an AAV replicative product that has been described as closed-ended linear duplex DNA (ceDNA) and became the basis of the non-viral gene therapy company Generation Bio (NASDAQ: GBIO). Dr. Kotin served as vice president of virology and gene therapy at Voyager Therapeutics from 2014 to 2016. Since 2016, he has served as an adjunct professor at UMass Medical School, where his research interests include vectorizing and characterizing ancestral parvoviruses based on inferred sequences from endogenous virus elements (EVEs) as novel gene therapy vectors. Dr. Kotin earned his B.A. in biology from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and his doctorate in microbiology from Rutgers University and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (now Robert Wood Johnson Medical School).
New England Journal of Medicine Interviews
In this episode of “Intention to Treat,” some of the people who have worked closely with “America's Doctor,” Anthony Fauci, offer insights into his character, values, accomplishments, and adventures over his decades of service at the NIH. . The Fauci Phenomenon. N Engl J Med 2023;388:e28.
The following question refers to Section 8.1 of the 2022 AHA/ACC/HFSA Guideline for the Management of Heart Failure. The question is asked by Western Michigan University medical student & CardioNerds Intern Shivani Reddy, answered first by Brigham & Women's medicine resident and Director of CardioNerds Internship Dr. Gurleen Kaur, and then by expert faculty Dr. Prateeti Khazanie. Dr. Khazanie is an Associate Professor and Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiologist at the University of Colorado. She was an undergraduate at Duke University as a B.N. Duke Scholar. She spent two years at the NIH in the lab of Dr. Anthony Fauci and completed a dual MD-MPH program at Duke Medical School. When she started residency, she thought she was going to be an ID doctor, but she fell in love with cardiology at Stanford where she was an intern, resident, and then chief resident. She went back to Duke for her general cardiology and advanced heart failure/transplant fellowships as well as research training at the DCRI. Dr. Khazanie joined the University of Colorado in 2015 as a health services clinician researcher with a focus on improving health equity and bioethics in advanced heart failure care. She mentors medical students, residents, and fellows and is a faculty mentor for the University of Colorado Cardiology Fellows “House of Cards” mentoring group. She has research funding from the NIH/NHLBI K23, NIH Ethics Grant, and Ludeman Center for Women's Health Research. Dr. Khazanie is an author on the 2022 ACC/AHA/HFSA HF Guidelines, the 2021 HFSA Universal Definition of Heart Failure, and multiple scientific statements. The Decipher the Guidelines: 2022 AHA / ACC / HFSA Guideline for The Management of Heart Failure series was developed by the CardioNerds and created in collaboration with the American Heart Association and the Heart Failure Society of America. It was created by 30 trainees spanning college through advanced fellowship under the leadership of CardioNerds Cofounders Dr. Amit Goyal and Dr. Dan Ambinder, with mentorship from Dr. Anu Lala, Dr. Robert Mentz, and Dr. Nancy Sweitzer. We thank Dr. Judy Bezanson and Dr. Elliott Antman for tremendous guidance. Enjoy this Circulation 2022 Paths to Discovery article to learn about the CardioNerds story, mission, and values. Question #11 A 64-year-old woman with a history of chronic systolic heart failure secondary to NICM (LVEF 15-20%) s/p dual chamber ICD presents for routine follow-up. She reports several months of progressive fatigue, dyspnea, and peripheral edema. She has been hospitalized twice in the past year with acute decompensated heart failure. Efforts to optimize guideline directed medical therapy have been tempered by episodes of lightheadedness and hypotension. Her exam is notable for an elevated JVP, an S3 heart sound, and a III/VI holosystolic murmur best heard at the apex with radiation to the axilla. Labs show Na 130 mmol/L, Cr 1.8 mg/dL (from 1.1 mg/dL 6 months prior), and NT-proBNP 1,200 pg/mL. ECG in clinic shows sinus rhythm and a nonspecific IVCD with QRS 116 ms. Her most recent TTE shows biventricular dilation with LVEF 15-20%, moderate functional MR, moderate functional TR and estimated RVSP of 40mmHg. What is the most appropriate next step in management? A Refer to electrophysiology for upgrade to CRT-D B Increase sacubitril-valsartan dose C Refer for advanced therapies evaluation D Start treatment with milrinone infusion Answer #11 Explanation The correct answer is C – refer for advanced therapies evaluation. Our patient has multiple signs and symptoms of advanced heart failure including NYHA Class III-IV functional status, persistently elevated natriuretic peptides, severely reduced LVEF, evidence of end organ dysfunction, multiple hospitalizations for ADHF, edema despite escalating doses of diuretics, and progressive intolerance to GDMT. Importantly, the 2018 European Society of Cardiology revised definition of advanced HF focuses...
In this episode, host Dr. Aaron Fritts interviews FLOW Medical cofounders Dr. Osman Ahmed and Dr. Jonathan Paul about how they built a company with the goal of designing a data-driven thrombolytic device that can deliver personalized care for patients with pulmonary embolism. --- CHECK OUT OUR SPONSOR RapidAI http://rapidai.com/?utm_campaign=Evergreen&utm_source=Online&utm_medium=podcast&utm_term=Backtable&utm_content=Sponsor --- EARN CME Reflect on how this Podcast applies to your day-to-day and earn free AMA PRA Category 1 CMEs: https://earnc.me/KikSeM --- SHOW NOTES Dr. Paul, interventional cardiologist, begins by explaining how he and Dr. Ahmed, interventional radiologist, came to work together. Dr. Ahmed came to the University of Chicago shortly after Dr. Paul started a pulmonary embolism response team (PERT) program. Dr. Ahmed, through his IR training, had experience with PE/VTE. They met and decided to combine their knowledge to build the program together. They both saw a need for new catheter directed thrombolytic (CDT) devices in their respective fields. The landscape of thrombectomy device innovation was booming, but they did not see the same innovation happening for CDT. After they both received the COVID vaccine, they were eating at Panera and drew out the idea for their device on a napkin. Neither of them had prior engineering experience and didn't know how to proceed after this, so they relied on the University of Chicago's entrepreneurial programs as a starting place. They then did market research and used their own internal research funding to subcontract with an engineering firm. They have been working on the design prototype since, and are conducting animal studies to trial the device. Once they reach design freeze, they will start the regulatory process and NIH 510(k) submission. They also have an NIH SBIR grant for small businesses doing innovative research. They plan to have the device on market in mid 2024. The goal for their device is to make it a catheter that can provide real-time feedback to minimize the complications of both too little or too much thrombolytic therapy. They are installing a sensor on the device that displays how much of the clot is lysed and allows for personalized PE treatment. They hope to incorporate AI into their data management, which they will use to tailor treatment in future patients. --- RESOURCES FLOW Medical: https://www.flowmedical.co

As more comes out of Congressional hearings and documents that purports to show the origins of Covid-19, Americans are wondering if we are starting to get real answers. Megan Basham, Daily Wire and an investigative journalist, joins to discuss. She traced some of the narratives around the vax back to their origins and how church leaders were involved in the PR campaign that eventually led to Biden's Admin mandates. This explosive revelation is both shocking and infuriating how so-called Christians colluded with Fauci's NIH.RumbleSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Advice on communicating in and around the biosecurity policy community, published by Elika on March 2, 2023 on The Effective Altruism Forum. TL;DR The field of biosecurity is more complicated, sensitive and nuanced, especially in the policy space, than what impressions you might get based on publicly available information. As a result, say / write / do things with caution (especially if you are a non-technical person or more junior, or talking to a new (non-EA) expert). This might help make more headway on safer biosecurity policy. Generally, take caution in what you say and how you present yourself, because it does impact how much you are trusted, whether or not you are invited back to the conversation, and thus the potential to make an impact in this (highly sensitive) space. Why Am I Saying This? An important note: I don't represent the views of the NIH, HHS, or the U.S. government and these are my personal opinions. This is me engaging outside of my professional capacity to provide advice for people interested in working on biosecurity policy. I work for a U.S. government agency on projects related to oversight and ethics over dual-use research of concern (DURC) and enhanced pandemic potential pathogens (ePPP). In my job, I talk and interface with science policy advisors, policy makers, regulators, (health) security professionals, scientists who do DURC / ePPP research, biosafety professionals, ethicists, and more. Everyone has a slightly different opinion and risk categorisation of biosecurity / biosafety as a whole, and DURC and ePPP research risk in specific. As a result of my work, I regularly (and happily) speak to newer and more junior EAs to give them advice on entering the biosecurity space. I've noticed a few common mistakes with how many EA community members – both newer bio people and non-bio people who know the basics about the cause area – approach communication, stakeholder engagement, and conversation around biosecurity, especially when engaging with non-EA-aligned stakeholders whose perspectives might be (and very often) are different than the typical EA-perspective on biosecurity and biorisk. I've also made many of these mistakes! I'm hoping this is educational and helpful and not shaming or off-putting. I'm happy to help anyone unsure communicate and engage more strategically in this space. Some Key Points that you might need to Update On. Junior EAs and people new to biosecurity / biosafety may not know how to or that they should be diplomatic. EA communities have a trend of encouraging provoking behaviour and absolutist, black-and-white scenarios in ways that don't communicate an understanding of how grey this field is and the importance of cooperation and diplomacy. If possible, even in EA contexts, train your default to be (at least a bit more) agreeable (especially at first). Be careful with the terms you use and what you say Terms matter. They signal where you are on the spectrum of ‘how dangerous X research type is', what educational background you have and whose articles / what sources you read, and how much you know on this topic. Example: If you use the term gain-of-function with a virologist, most will respond saying most biomedical research is either a gain or loss of function and isn't inherently risky. In an age where many virologists feel like health security professionals want to take away their jobs, saying gain-of-function is an easy and unknowing way to discredit yourself. Biosafety, biorisk, and biosecurity all indicate different approaches to a problem and often, different perspectives on risk and reasonable solutions. What terms you use signal not only what ‘side' you represent, but in a field that's heavily political and sensitive can discredit you amongst the other sides. Recognise how little (or how much) you know Biosec...
Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas, talks about the now confirmed lab leak and what it means for those individuals who lied in the NIH and CDC to the American people and under oath to Congress. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The Department of Energy just released a bombshell new report that states it believes the lab leak theory is the most likely origin of the COVID-19 virus. This makes them the second federal agency to come to this conclusion, while gain-of-function research carries on and Ecohealth Alliance, the nonprofit Fauci's NIH used as a pass-through organization to fund the Wuhan lab, continues to receive millions of dollars. Jack Hunter steps in for Brad on this episode and discusses the mainstream media's desperate attempts to spin this report online. Then, Hannah and Jack dissect the two Supreme Court cases being heard this week that challenge the Biden Administration's plans to cancel student debt. Hannah details how this decision could have a major ripple effect across various government agencies, and then the two turn their attention to the third party payments swirling between medical companies like Pfizer and the NIH. Next, in their quick hits segment, Hannah and Jack react to a viral video where a flight passenger demands another person give up his seat so that he can sit by his wife, a Tik Tok that claims pretty women are bullied more, and finally, a hilariously hypocritical healthcare take. They round out the show by reading your thoughts from the comment section and offering hot takes. Like the podcast?

In Florida, medical freedom activists are putting more and more pressure on a certain hospital system located in the city of Sarasota. This particular hospital put out an official report that touted how awesome their response to COVID-19 was. However, these medical freedom activists, which include people who lost family members to COVID-19 at this hospital, are calling this report a “cover-up.” They accused the hospital system of using ineffective treatments just because those treatments were directly tied to federal payouts from the CDC and NIH. Several people blamed the use of the drug remdesivir for the deaths of their family members, while several others described the process of begging the hospital to consider using alternative treatments. Moreover, on the same day that this report was released, the hospital hosted a board meeting wherein hundreds of people from across the state came in to hear what the hospital would say about their treatments—which many people allege actually led to unnecessary deaths. However, it appears that the hospital management knew that a large crowd was coming to the event, and so they padded the audience with their own employees, who did nothing but sing praises for the treatment. ⭕️ Sign up for our NEWSLETTER and stay in touch

We all experience pain, and 50 million people cope with chronic, debilitating pain. The market for pain therapies is estimated at $74 billion. And yet, investment in new pain and addiction treatments is falling short of what is needed, according to a new BIO report, which shows a 44% decrease in clinical drug programs for pain over the past five years. Our guests on this episode talk about the challenges of living with and treating pain, as well as research and development on new, non-addictive and safer pain therapies.

The Real Truth About Health Free 17 Day Live Online Conference Podcast
Can A Whole Food Plant Based Diet Prevent, Suspend, And/Or Cure Many Chronic Diseases? T. Colin Campbell, PhD• https://nutritionstudies.org/ • Book - China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss and Long Term Health #TColinCampbell#ChinaStudy #PlantBased #WoleFoodDiet T. Colin Campbell, PhD has been dedicated to the science of human health for more than 60 years. His primary focus is on the association between diet and disease, particularly cancer. Although largely known for the China Study — one of the most comprehensive studies of health and nutrition ever conducted, and recognized by The New York Times as the “Grand Prix of epidemiology” — Dr. Campbell's profound impact also includes extensive involvement in education, public policy, and laboratory research. Dr. Campbell grew up on a dairy farm and was the first in his family to go to college, where he studied pre-veterinary medicine at Pennsylvania State University. After obtaining his bachelor's degree, and while completing his first year at the University of Georgia veterinary school, he received a telegram from a well known professor at Cornell University, offering a scholarship and research opportunity too good to turn down. And so he completed his education at Cornell University (M.S., Ph.D.) and MIT (Research Associate) in nutrition, biochemistry and toxicology. He then spent 10 years on the faculty of Virginia Tech's Department of Biochemistry and Nutrition before returning to Cornell in 1975 where he presently holds his Endowed Chair as the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry in the Division of Nutritional Sciences. Dr. Campbell's research experience includes both laboratory experiments and large-scale human studies. He has received over 70 grant-years of peer-reviewed research funding (mostly with NIH), served on grant review panels of multiple funding agencies, actively participated in the development of national and international nutrition policy, and authored over 300 research papers. Throughout his career, he has confronted a great deal of confusion surrounding nutrition and its effects. It is precisely this confusion that he has focused so much on, in recent years. In order to synthesize the findings of his long and rewarding career, and to give back to the public whose lives are threatened by rampant misinformation and special interests, Dr. Campbell co-wrote The China Study: Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss and Long-term Health, which has sold more than 2 million copies worldwide. He is also the author of the The New York Times bestseller Whole, and The Low-Carb Fraud. Several documentary films feature Dr. Campbell and his research, including Forks Over Knives, Eating You Alive, Food Matters, and PlantPure Nation. He continues to share evidence-based information on health and nutrition whenever given the opportunity. He has delivered hundreds of lectures around the world and he is the founder of the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies and the online Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate in partnership with eCornell. To Contact Dr. T.

This week week look at a piece by David Katz: "I imagine -and in select cases know- that many of my colleagues were encouraged and gratified to hear that the NIH is allocating a sizable sum to the pursuit of precision nutrition. Some number of my colleagues will be directly involved in those research efforts, and others are simply pleased to see nutrition getting some small measure of the attention we agree it warrants. I can appreciate these reactions, but in my case, the response felt more like a wave of nausea accompanied by echoes of “here we go again, again.....” We also look at some recent studies in the aging space. Two studies by Dr. Sinclair and Dr. Macip looking at age reversal ability. From the David Sinclair Lab at Harvard we see first of its kind data regarding the ability to identify epigenetic marks in mice as the etiology or biomarker of aging. This is nothing short of an amazing discovery. Listen to Podcast #2 with the father of epigenetics Dr. Randy Jirtle to gain a foothold in this world and then listen on. Enjoy, Dr. M

Run to the Top Podcast | The Ultimate Guide to Running
One of the most difficult concepts to master as a runner is that you don't need to be running faster, longer or harder every time out to improve. In fact, sometimes running just below or slower than your potential in workouts leads to more consistent improvement. In this week's episode, Coach Jeff is going to discuss the science about why this is so you can fully understand the concept and apply it to your running.

This week's show brought to you by: Mobility Wall We all know how important foam rolling is for staying injury-free and just plain feeling better for every run. But, let's face it, many of us skip it because clearing out space on the floor feels like too much work, the pressure is too painful and difficult to control, or you can't seem to hit the right spots. That's why I was so amazed when I saw the door-mounted foam roller from Mobility Wall. The Mobility Wall device mounts to your doorframe in just a few seconds and is easy to move up and down the frame in just a few seconds. Not only does this get you off the ground and ready to foam roll in just a few seconds, it also allows you to easily hit muscles in your neck and shoulders that aren't possible with a traditional foam roller. Even better, because you're off the ground, you don't have to control gravity to adjust the pressure. You simply use upward and inward pressure, which is much easier to control. The days of painful foam rolling are over. If you've been wanting to get more consistent with your injury-prevention work this year, the Mobility Wall foam roller will be a game changer. I can't believe how much more I've been foam rolling since I started using it. Plus, we've got a special offer for you. Just go to mobilitywall.com/RTTT or enter RTTT at checkout for 20% off your first order. Plus, it comes with a free app that gives you video instructions on exactly how to hit every area. Delta G Ketones have been one of the most well-researched chemicals when it comes to endurance performance. Their only downside is that it typically takes 2 days of fasting for your body to produce them in quantities that would help your performance But, thanks to deltaG and collaborations from the US Military and researchers from NIH and the University of Oxford, they've developed a ketone drink that can boost your ketone levels to those seen after 2 days of fasting in just 20 minutes. The academic literature on the effectiveness of ketones for running performance is overwhelming. If you want to see more of the research, head to runnersconnect.net/deltag Plus, use the code RTT20 when you do and you can save 20% on any purchase you make.
Exploring Nature, Culture and Inner Life
~ Co-presented by The New School at Commonweal and the Collaborative for Health and Environment ~ The harm to human health from chemical exposures is now recognized as a global crisis on par with climate change and biodiversity loss. Effectively addressing this challenge means adopting new approaches that recognize the complexity of systems with multi-disciplinary approaches, prioritize precaution and prevention, and address disproportionate impacts and environmental injustices. Join Host Steve Heilig for a conversation with Dr. Linda Birnbaum and Dr. Ami Zota, two innovative leaders in efforts to promote environmental health and justice in the United States. Dr. Linda Birnbaum Linda is the former Director of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and the National Toxicology Program. She was granted Scientist Emeritus Status at NIH when she retired and is also a Scholar in Residence at the Nicholas School of the Environment, Duke University. As NIEHS director, Dr. Birnbaum oversaw research grants and shared the results of cutting edge environmental health research with the public and policy makers. She also met with communities to better understand environmental health concerns and disparities. Throughout her career, Dr. Birnbaum has been particularly effective at bringing forward the mounting scientific evidence of harm of exposures to certain chemicals that are now ubiquitous in our products and environment. Her discussion of the current science has helped to shift our understanding of exposures to include the dangers of chronic low dose exposures and the long term effects of early lifetime exposures. Dr. Ami Zota Ami is a population health scientist with expertise in environmental health, environmental justice, and maternal and reproductive health. Her research focuses on understanding social and structural determinants of environmental exposures and their consequent impacts to women's health outcomes across the life course. Her long-term goal is to help secure environmental justice and health equity among systematically marginalized populations by advancing scientific inquiry, training next generation leaders, increasing public engagement with science, and supporting community-led solutions for structural change. Dr. Zota is the founding director of the Agents of Change in Environmental Justice program which seeks to foster more diverse, equitable and inclusive leaders in environmental and climate justice, training early career scientists from systematically marginalized backgrounds in science communication, storytelling, community engagement, and policy translation. Dr. Zota received CHE's “20 Pioneers Under 40 in Environmental Public Health” award in 2018. Host Steve Heilig Steve is a longtime senior research associate with Commonweal, a co-founder of the Commonweal Collaborative for Health and Environment, a host of dialogues for the New School, and in other programs originating at or founded at Commonweal. Trained at five University of California campuses in public health, medical ethics, addiction medicine, economics, environmental sciences, and other disciplines, his other work includes positions at the San Francisco Medical Society, California Pacific Medical Center, and as co-editor of the Cambridge Quarterly of Healthcare Ethics. He has served on many nonprofit boards and appointed commissions, and is a trained hospice worker. He is a widely published essayist and book and music critic for the San Francisco Chronicle, Huffington Post, and many other publications.

When treating cancer patients, physicians are often faced with tough choices. Treatment options like radiation can often come with unpleasant, for some, unbearable side-effects. Doctors walk a fine line between stopping the growth of cancer cells and giving cancer cells the very thing they need to grow and spread. City of Hope and TGen physician-scientist Yun Rose Li, M.D., Ph.D., has been called trailblazing and innovative by the NIH in her research into oxidative stress and its effects on cancer cells. Dr. Li is using a five year, nearly $2 million grant to study how manipulating oxidative stress can improve the outcomes of her patients with genitourinary cancers. Recruited for her research while still a resident at UC San Francisco, Dr. Li is quickly proving it no longer takes a lifetime in cancer research to make a difference in the lives of patients.
We love data sharing around here, and something exciting happened In January 2023: The NIH put into effect a brand new Data Management and Data Sharing Policy. Any grant submitted to the NIH must follow this new Policy, and each grant submitted will include a Data Management and Sharing Plan describing how the research team will comply with that policy. Have a listen as Jess and Sara describe the new Policy, and walk you through the parts of the Plan, with honestly a bit more enthusiasm than should be allowed for reading and discussing a Policy. We talked about: The NIH Website about their new Data Management and Sharing Policy. How to budget for Data Management and Sharing in a grant application. The decision tool - to figure out which Policies apply to you. About selecting a data repository - remember, always choose a domain-specific repository when you can! The Sample Data Management and Sharing Plans for different institutes. The template for their Data Management and Sharing Plan (this will download as a document!).

As women, there is no shortage of things that we worry about. But we're no good to others if we're not at the top of the list. On the podcast, I talk a lot about being in a good mental space, but our physical health is just as important. In this episode, I'm talking to Dr. Nicole Farmer, NIH physician scientist and internal medicine doctor, about women's health and how we can ensure we're health-conscious. And because she's a researcher, I ask her about the importance of medical research, and how history prevents Black Americans from fully benefiting from clinical advancements. About My Guest:Dr. Nicole Farmer is currently a Physician Scientist at the NIH Clinical Center and the Acting Section Chief of the Dietary Behaviors and Biopsychosocial Health Section. Dr. Farmer is involved in both community-based and patient research exploring the role of cooking in chronic disease prevention and psychosocial health. Prior to joining the NIH, she was a well-established primary care clinician and routinely engaged her patients in nutrition education through cooking classes. Dr. Farmer is an alumnus of Howard University College of Medicine, received her internal medicine training from Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, and held a prior appointment at Johns Hopkins University Hospital. She has also completed fellowship training in Integrative Medicine from University of Arizona and Duke University. In addition, Dr. Farmer was named a Harvard Macy Fellow in 2021 for her work on incorporating humanities into culinary medicine education and research. Grown and Growing Podcast: Like. Follow. Share.

Vi har besøk av Torkil Færø, kanskje best kjent som «pulslegen» i disse dager og aktuell med boken Pulskuren. Han har satt begrepet pulsvariabilitet, HRV, på agendaen, og mener det er ikke bare en random verdi på pulsklokka men et styringsverktøy og måleparameter som gir oss verdifull informasjon om stressnivåer, søvnkvalitet, generell form og restitusjonsbehov etter økter, for å nevne noe. Vi møter Torkil for en åpen prat, og prøver, i tillegg til det overnevnte, å bli kloke på om dette rett og slett kan bli for mye av det gode - skal vi heller lytte til klokka og dens verdier enn vår egen kropp..? Vi har med oss Melina Magulas i deler av episoden, fysiolog på NIH, som deler verdifulle perspektiver. Vi håper du ser på episoden som et lærerikt innslag om nettopp HRV, og at det hjelper deg til å avgjøre om dette er noe du føler din hverdag trenger eller ikke. Hjelper det deg til å kontrollere stresset eller skaper det mer stress? Det kan kun du selv avgjøre. God lytt! Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

Today, I interview independent reporter Jimmy Tobias. Jimmy successfully challenged the NIH to have the redactions removed from Dr Fauci's emails surrounding his secret deliberations with NIH Director Francis Collins, Jeremy Farrar, and several renown virologists regarding the possible lab origin of COVID-19. We discuss the content of those unredacted emails between Drs. Fauci, Collins, Farrar and a cabal of internationally recognized virologists in the first nine days of February 2020. These emails followed the now notorious February 1st, 2020, secret teleconference arranged by Jeremy Farrar and Anthony Fauci to discuss the unanimous opinion of four renown virologists that the virus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic had genetic features that looked “potentially engineered” and was “inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.” Within days of that secret teleconference, these virologists made a 180-degree about-face and wrote a highly influential correspondence in Nature Medicine entitled: The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2 stating unequivocally that the virus responsible for the COVID-19 could not have come from a lab. How the authors of The Proximal Origin Correspondence came to this reversal so quickly and so adamantly without any credible science to justify it was a mystery... until the redactions from Fauci emails were removed.

When National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins finally retired last year, we warned that nothing would change. We said the same thing when Dr. Anthony Fauci retired on Dec. 31, 2022. That turned out to be correct, as everyone was able to see last week when new NIH Director Lawrence Tabak was trotted out for a congressional hearing. Tabak repeated the exact same lies that Collins and Fauci pushed in the past. And the Republicans asking him questions were just as hopeless at cornering Tabak as they were at cornering the old guard. Tabak is deeply entangled in the Wuhan lab leak coverup as well as in the deletion of crucial Chinese sequence data from the NIH's database. But you wouldn't know this from listening to the hearings. We'll tell you the real story, the one neither the corporate media nor Republican House members cared to tell. ⭕️ Watch in-depth videos based on Truth & Tradition at Epoch TV

Stronger U Radio with Mike Doehla
Ozempic. Wegovy. Rybelsus. These brand names of the medication semaglutide (a GLP-1) have recently been having quite the moment in the spotlight. From social media influencers and celebrities to publications and news outlets, it seems everyone has been talking about this “miracle drug.” Following increased exposure and curiosity among the general population about semaglutide, there's been an influx of non-science-backed headlines and misinformation spread across the internet. Any time a new medication enters the market, evidence-based education is crucial for consumers to understand what these medications can and cannot do. Many people are searching for the elusive quick fix, but does it actually exist? What are the implications, and how do nutrition and lifestyle factors come into play? As part of our commitment to educating our community, we're shedding light on this very relevant and timely topic in the latest episode of Stronger U Radio. Manager of Nutrition Content and Innovation Gianna Masi, RD, sat down with NIH-funded principal investigator and board-certified primary care nurse practitioner Dr. Tina Sadarangani, Ph.D. to debunk the myths and set the record straight (based on fact, not fiction) around semaglutide and weight loss. Dr. Tina has an impressive background and brings a wealth of experience in the medical field. She's also an assistant professor in the NYU Grossman School of Medicine's Department of Population Health. Her research program is underscored by a profound commitment to advancing the health of minoritized populations and targeting health disparities. Tune into this evidence-based conversation for answers to many of the most common questions, such as: What is semaglutide?How does it work?How can it help with weight loss?Who is a candidate?What are the pros and cons?What are the common side effects?How much does it cost?What are some important considerations?How can you support your long-term health in conjunction with these drugs?Plus, Dr. Tina and Gianna chat about medication accessibility, the many factors that can contribute to weight gain, and why these medications are part of a broader toolbox.

Inside Health Care: Presented by NCQA
On this episode of Inside Health Care, we offer two interviews. NYC Health + Hospitals leaders, Dr. Eric Wei and Dr. Ted Long, discuss hospital worker burnout, including suicide, and the need for awareness, mitigation and prevention. After that, Inland Empire Health Plan Chief Quality Officer, Dr. Edward Juhn, talks about “algorithmic bias,” a software-based anomaly that may adversely affect population health metrics that drive research on equity. Both interviews were recorded live at NCQA's inaugural Health Innovation Summit, held in late 2022 in Washington, DC. Later, in our “Fast Facts” segment, we observe American Heart Month, with hints for keeping your heart healthy from NIH's National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. We also tell you about an NCQA HEDIS measure, Cardiac Rehabilitation, that assesses the percentage of adults 18 and older who attended cardiac rehab after a cardiac event like a heart attack, heart transplant or heart bypass.

Dr. Paul Alexander Liberty Hour – The CDC, NIH, FDA, Pfizer, Moderna, and other policymakers know that the vaccine does not sterilize the virus (stop infection, replication, transmission) and is ineffective with negative effectiveness, and also deadly. They know this. This is the hill parents must be willing to defend, with their lives if need be. No shot for your healthy child!
