There is a lot of concern these days about foreign interference in elections. More and more evidence is emerging that China has been exerting significant influence in recent elections in Canada, including covertly funding federal candidates. Opioids are killing about 200 Americans a day. Researchers believe they have a vaccine that will lower these figures. But this solution overlooks the causes for this crisis, including illegal immigration, lawlessness and family breakdown. Thanksgiving Day is tomorrow, a holiday that reminds us to be grateful for our blessings. This truly is something we need to think about far more than once a year. In fact, thankfulness should be a daily habit. An attitude of gratitude can have a transformative effect on our thinking.

The "Red Tsunami" was downgraded to a "Red Wave" on election night before ending up as a "Red Ripple." So, why did so many in politics and the media get it wrong? A lot are blaming "the polls" but we're explaining why that is simply not true. As we've said on Poll Hub for years, quality polls are entirely different from aggregators that average surveys from everyone -- including organizations with no track record and no transparency about their methods or funding. So...we have some advice.Then, looking at the main issues of concern to voters in the midterms, the opioid crisis barely registered, despite killing over 100,000 Americans last year. Freelance journalist and recovering addict Zachary Siegel (@ZachWritesStuff), who also hosts Narcotica Podcast (@Narcocast) about mental health and addiction and co-writes Substance, a Substack about drugs and crime, is here to help us understand the disconnect. Zach takes us on a deep dive into why such a huge problem, that's impacting so many American families, isn't more important to voters.We end the show with some food for thought, and everyone's got a different opinion on Lee's yummy Fun Fact this week.

The Real Truth About Health Free 17 Day Live Online Conference Podcast

New 2022 - Do Doctors Cause Obesity And Diabetes? Dr. Robert Lustig • http://www.robertlustig.com • Book - Metabolical #RobertLustig#BigFood #BigPharma #BigGovernment Dr. Robert Lustig is a The New York Times bestselling author and author of Metabolical: The Lure and the Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition, and Modern Medicine and a Professor of Pediatric Endocrinology at the University of California, San Francisco.  Dr. Robert Lustig, a pediatric neuroendocrinologist who has long been on the cutting edge of medicine and science, challenges our current healthcare paradigm which has gone off the rails under the influence of Big Food, Big Pharma, and Big Government.You can't solve a problem if you don't know what the problem is. One of Lustig's singular gifts as a communicator is his ability to “connect the dots” for the general reader, in order to unpack the scientific data and concepts behind his arguments, as he tells the “real story of food” and “the story of real food.” Metabolical weaves the interconnected strands of nutrition, health/disease, medicine, environment, and society into a completely new fabric by proving on a scientific basis a series of iconoclastic revelations, among them: • Medicine for chronic disease treats symptoms, not the disease itself• You can diagnose your own biochemical profile • Chronic diseases are not "druggable," but they are "foodable" • Processed food isn't just toxic, it's addictive• The war between vegan and keto is a false war—the combatants are on the same side• Big Food, Big Pharma, and Big Government are on the other side Making the case that food is the only lever we have to effect biochemical change to improve our health, Lustig explains what to eat based on two novel criteria: protect the liver, and feed the gut. He insists that if we do not fix our food and change the way we eat, we will continue to court chronic disease, bankrupt healthcare, and threaten the planet. But there is hope: this book explains what's needed to fix all three.Dr. Lustig has become a leading public health authority on the impact sugar has on fueling the diabetes, obesity and metabolic syndrome epidemics, and on addressing changes in the food environment to reverse these chronic diseases. A native of Brooklyn, New York, graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and received his M.D. from Cornell University Medical College. He completed his pediatric residency at St. Louis Children's Hospital, his clinical fellowship at UCSF, his post-doctoral fellow and research associate in neuroendocrinology at The Rockefeller University. He has been a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and the University of Tennessee, Memphis. In 2013, Dr. Lustig received his Masters in the study of Law from University of California, Hastings to enable him to impact the food industry through policy change.Dr. Lustig has authored 125 peer-reviewed articles and 73 reviews. He has mentored 20 pediatric endocrine fellows, and trained numerous other allied health professionals. He provides endocrinologic support to several protocols of the Children's Oncology Group. He is the former Chairman of the Ad hoc Obesity Task Force of the Lawson Wilkins Pediatric Endocrine Society, a member of the Pediatric Obesity Practice Guidelines Subcommittee of The Endocrine Society, a member of the Obesity Task Force of the Endocrine Society, a member of the Pediatric Obesity Devices Committee of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, a member of the Bay Area Board of Directors of the American Heart Association, and a member of the Steering Committee of Health Foods, Healthy Kids of the Culinary Institute of America. He also consults for several childhood obesity advocacy groups.Dr. Lustig lives in San Francisco with his wife Julie and two daughters. Spare time (what little there is) is spent cooking, theater-going, and traveling.To Contact Dr Robert Lustig, M.D.  go to robertlustig.com

The high profile federal opioid cases have left many Americans with the sense that they understand the opioid crisis, who was responsible, and how it came to pass. There's another dimension to the full story, however, one that might have remained hidden from public view, were it not for the reporting of Scott Higham and Sari Horwitz of the Washington Post.rnrnIn their new book American Cartel: Inside the Battle to Bring Down the Opioid Industry, Higham and Horwitz reveal how the large pharmaceutical companies operated, and the extent to which their operations--and the addiction of countless Americans--was enabled by a legion of lawmakers and lobbyists, many of whom had previously worked for the Drug Enforcement Agency and the U.S. Department of Justice. Additionally, the authors chronicle the drug industry insider's disdain for the very patients they claimed to serve.rnrnAs part of our Authors in Conversation series, Sari Horwitz will discuss her book, the state of the ongoing opioid epidemic, and solutions that may be on the horizon.

Who's to Blame for the Opioid Crisis?

When things aren't going well, people always look for a scapegoat. When it comes to the opioid epidemic, the CDC's preferred scapegoat has been pharmaceutical companies. Meanwhile, the DEA blames doctors for over-prescribing pain medication, and has tightened regulations on the quantity that can be prescribed. As we've learned from Dr. Jeffrey Singer over the years, the crackdown on prescription opioids has missed the mark and made the problem worse: addicted patients have turned to the black market to satisfy their demand, and gotten hooked on far more dangerous drugs like illicit heroin and synthetic Fentanyl. Singer calls the misguided war on opioids a “war on pain patients” with no end in sight.More recently, Republican politicians have tried to score points against the Biden administration by scapegoating illegal immigrants for the problem of Fentanyl smuggling. Smuggling has indeed increased. However, a Washington Post op-ed by Cato scholars Singer and David Bier (associate director of immigration studies) reveals the folly of the Republicans' accusations. Illegal immigrants are not the ones bringing Fentanyl across the border, they note. It's mostly US citizens doing the smuggling. Ever since border enforcement has tightened, it has become more common for smugglers to conceal small amounts of the much more potent Fentanyl in otherwise legal border crossings.David and Jeff join the show of ideas to discuss the inevitable unintended consequences of both the war on drugs and the war on immigrants. We will investigate the issue from the angle of the failure of drug prohibition, as well as the failure of strict immigration policy. Both of these problems share a common root cause – they seek to interfere with free markets. The laws of supply and demand don't stop functioning just because an artificial legal boundary is erected – whether you're talking about drugs or people.The solution is simpler than you think – but first, we must assign the blame correctly. Will politicians examine their own role in creating the crisis, or will they continue to scapegoat innocent people?

Recovery awareness growing in East African community as opioid crisis takes toll

Farhia Budul gazed over the state Capitol grounds as hundreds of people stopped at booths lining the street. For Budul, the Sept. 17 Walk for Recovery was lined with hope. “You see recovery everywhere here in the state of Minnesota,” Budul said. Substance use disorder recovery advocates like Budul are sounding the alarm about the opioid crisis. “The opioid epidemic has come hard and hit hard the East African community,” Budul said as she greeted passersby. Liam James Doyle for MPR News Attendees visit booths and mingle at the Minnesota State Capitol Grounds on Saturday. As Budul, a Somali American Muslim woman, began her own journey of recovery from substance use disorder, she saw a pressing need for culturally-specific services. Budul founded her nonprofit Niyyah Recovery Initiative last year. Niyyah means “intention” in Arabic, Budul explained. She aims to educate what she describes as  the backbone of the community, particularly mothers and elders, about opioids and substance use disorder in the Somali language. “Moms are like, ‘My son or daughter died of a heart attack,' when we know that 20-year-old playing basketball the other day had taken the wrong pill laced with fentanyl and overdosed and did not wake up,” she said. Budul said lack of education and stigma is attached to the idea of addiction in her culture, which is why she chooses to “recover out loud.” Liam James Doyle Emma Matrious, right, contributes to a board where people could share their stories of recovery at the Minnesota State Capitol Grounds on Saturday. The problem is in every Minnesota community. The state reported record drug overdose deaths in 2021. The increasing prevalence of fentanyl is thought to be a contributing factor. While the Minnesota Department of Health said it does not keep data on overdoses in the East African communities currently, the state does keep track of the numbers by groups more broadly. In the most recent numbers from 2019, African Americans were almost two times more likely to die of a drug overdose than whites. Native Americans were seven times more likely to die of drug overdose than whites.  Pearl Evans, a prevention program administrator for the state health department, works on culturally-specific services for Black Minnesotans. Evans has seen an encouraging shift among the older generation during the pandemic. “They are more open to having this conversation, to receive the information so they can be prepared to administer naloxone,” Evans said. Naloxone, also called Narcan, rapidly reverses an opioid overdose, and can be administered in a nasal spray. Like Budul, Yussuf Shafie is one of the pioneers of culturally-specific services for the East African community. Shafie, the CEO and treatment director at the Alliance Wellness Center in Bloomington, Minn., said he has also seen significant changes in awareness and acceptance of substance use disorders, partly because of the desperation of the families touched by the opioid crisis. Liam James Doyle for MPR News Yussuf Shafie, treatment director with Alliance Wellness Center, participated in the recovery awareness event at the Minnesota State Capitol grounds in St. Paul. “2015 was more like alcohol, marijuana, cocaine,” Shafie said.  “2018, 2019, 2020, [it was] opioids and fentanyl.” He added that fentanyl seems to comprise almost all of the cases he's seeing. Shafie's goal is to serve as a bridge between youth and their families in a rapidly changing landscape. “It's a different generation with social media and technology,” Shafie said. “Drugs are easily accessible nowadays and it's just really unfortunate.” Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension Superintendent Drew Evans said law enforcement is also working to curb an increase of importation of fentanyl across the southern U.S. border. Evans said fake oxycodone pills that can contain fentanyl have become among the most common seizures. “In 2021, for example, we were seeing about an average of 100 cases involving fentanyl per month coming into our BCA laboratories across the state,” the BCA superintendent said. “This year we are on pace at 120 cases per month, so you see a significant increase we are looking at.” Last year, Minnesota averaged more than three people dying every day from an overdose of any drug type and the state reported a larger percentage increase in overdose deaths in greater Minnesota than in the seven-county Twin Cities area. September is National Recovery Month. Farhia Budul said it will take everyone's efforts year-round to fight the opioid crisis. “Addiction does not discriminate, it does not have a color,” Budul said. She added that for future Recovery Walks, “I hope to see in the next few years more East African and more BIPOC communities coming out to the state Capitol.” Liam James Doyle for MPR News Attendees socialize and visit various booths at the Minnesota State Capitol Grounds on Saturday.

Sam and Emma host Jonah Furman of Labor Notes and author of the Who Gets The Bird? newsletter on SubStack to discuss the recent negotiations between rail workers, railroad companies, and the Biden administration. Then they are joined by investigative reporter Seth Harp to discuss his recent reporting surrounding the recent deaths and opioid abuse at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. Emma and Sam first run through updates on the Fed's plan to discipline labor by tanking the economy into a recession, migrants file a class-action suit against DeSantis for his stunt, and DeSantis discusses his “Ultimate Solution.” Jonah Furman then joins as they get right into the three-year leadup to last Thursday's sudden climax of a potential rail strike in the US, walking through separate processes for labor organizing in the rail industry, the need for a 30-day cool-off period, and why Biden got involved, before parsing through the federal deal recommended and why it got so much pushback from the various railway unions. Next, he, Sam, and Emma explore how the rail industry came to be under different processes, with 19th Century unrest leading to the 1926 Railway Labor Act that works to keep the country's infrastructure moving, and leading up to the conditions we see today, where workers are expected to constantly be on call with no right to call out for an emergency and the workforce getting cut more and more while production increases. After a brief conversation on the role of monopoly and the leverage that the federal government could hold in this situation, they wrap up by tackling the state of their strike fund, and where this action is likely to head next. Emma is then joined by Seth Harp to get into the developing controversy coming out of the Fort Bragg military base, with a series of murders and executions piling up from 2020 through 2021 alongside increased overdoses and various drug possession and dealing charges all coming out of an institution that was supposedly the pinnacle of US Special Operations, with JSOC, Green Berets, and more all stationed there. They tackle the history of the US Military and Special Operations in mass drug trafficking, the incredible autonomy and power held by these unelected officials, and how this controversy encapsulates the myriad failures of the US Wars on Terror and Drugs. And in the Fun Half: Sam hosts Brad Polumbo, journalist and policy correspondent at the Foundation for Economic Education, on the immorality of student debt forgiveness, whether debt cancellation is debt transfer, the benefits of college, why daddy paying for college is okay but big brother doing so is bad, and how to grapple with being anti-regressive policy and anti-taxation. Sam and Emma also touch on Ronna McDaniel responding to accusations of Republican fear-mongering by pointing out how scary the world is, Matt DePerno on Michigan's potential abortion ban, and Stephen Crowder talks with a gay guy about how much women SUCK, plus, your IMs!
