Poll: 56 percent of public supports ‘Medicare for all’ The poll from the Kaiser Family Foundation finds that 56 percent of the public supports a single-payer plan, compared to 42 percent who oppose the idea. Progressives are pushing the new Democratic House majority to move forward on the idea, and many Democratic presidential hopefuls have signed on to the idea as well. More centrist Democratic lawmakers remain opposed to the proposal, however. The poll finds that there are wide swings in support and opposition to the idea depending on how the question is asked. When people are told that Medicare for all would “guarantee health insurance as a right for all Americans,” support shoots up to 71 percent. But when people are told that the proposal would “require most Americans to pay more in taxes,” support plummets to just 37 percent. Other slightly less far-reaching proposals have more support than Medicare for all, the poll finds.
CBS rejects Super Bowl ad on benefits of medical marijuana CBS rejected a Super Bowl ad that makes a case for medical marijuana. Acreage Holdings, which is in the cannabis cultivation, processing and dispensing business, said it produced a 60-second ad that shows three people suffering from varying health issues who say their lives were made better by use of medical marijuana. Acreage said its ad agency sent storyboards for the ad to the network and received a return email that said: “CBS will not be accepting any ads for medical marijuana at this time.” A CBS spokesperson told USA TODAY Sports that under CBS broadcast standards it does not currently accept cannabis-related advertising. “We’re not particularly surprised that CBS and/or the NFL rejected the content,” Acreage president George Allen said. “And that is actually less a statement about them and more we think a statement about where we stand right now in this country.”
Question of The Day!
We are thinking of moving to Ecuador with our kids who are not vaccinated. There is a threat of both Yellow Fever and Malaria and vaccines for those are recommended. Kind of makes me scared. What would you recommend? Benefit vs. risk of contracting disease?
Thanks! Love you show!!!
Millennials Ditching The Doctor; What’s At Stake More and more millennials are ditching the doctor and many don’t even have a primary care physician, according to a survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation. Some doctors say this could lead to people overlooking serious health issues. Dr. Niket Sonpal, adjunct assistant professor at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, joined CBSN New York’s Janelle Burrell to explain what’s behind this health trend. “I think there’s a few reasons. I think the primary one happens to be access to care,” he said. “We found that millennials tend to want to have access to care right away, they want it immediately and they want to be able to see a doctor quickly.” “When they feel well, they don’t want to go to the doctors, and they don’t,” he continued. “So then when they feel unwell, they’re like I want to see a doctor right away and not wait for weeks for an appointment.” So what are the dangers of skipping the doctor’s office and opting for urgent care instead? “The big one that we’re worried about now, and I think it’s a big global health crisis, is not getting their vaccinations on time.”
SpaceX’s giant rocket ship was blown over and damaged by powerful winds in Texas — and Elon Musk says repairs will take weeks The top section of SpaceX’s shiny prototype of its giant Starship rocket fell over on Wednesday morning because of powerful winds. “I just heard,” Elon Musk, the company’s founder, tweeted, confirming on-the-ground reports that the vehicle was no longer vertical. He added: “50 mph winds broke the mooring blocks late last night & fairing was blown over. Will take a few weeks to repair.” A SpaceX representative independently confirmed to Business Insider that the top portion of the vehicle — called the fairing or nosecone — had fallen over because of high winds. The representative declined to comment further. SpaceX’s facility is at the southern tip of Texas. A local resident, who asked not to be named, said winds were gusting at about 50 mph for much of Tuesday and picked up early Wednesday. “From about 2 to 5, it was nothing but rattling and metal and trees breaking. It felt like a hurricane,” the resident said. “Everything SpaceX did to get ready for this storm worked against them. It looked like they blocked the wind coming from the southeast, but the winds shifted in the night and came from the northeast — and that sucker went flying.”
Hour 2 – Outside The Box With Ty Bollinger!
It’s time to go Outside The Box again with Ty Bollinger! What will we be talking about today?
Are The Microbiome And Cancer Connected? $25 Million Project Aims To Find Out The microbiome—the normal microbes we all have in our gut, is being increasingly linked to multiple aspects of health and disease. Now one of the world’s biggest cancer charities, Cancer Research UK has dedicated up to $25 million to finding out if it is linked to development of colorectal cancer, the third most common cancer in the U.S. There are many lifestyle factors that influence people’s risk of developing colorectal cancer. Researchers are discovering that the impact of some of these factors on the microbiome, such as diet and obesity, may play an important role in colorectal cancer development, progression and even response to cancer drugs. The ambitious project involves 14 investigators spread between six different countries, but is led jointly by two U.S. researchers; Professor Matthew Meyerson of Dana-Faber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School and Professor Wendy Garrett from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Meyerson specializes in cancer genetics and Garrett’s expertise is immunology and infectious diseases.
Merck’s Hepatitis B Vaccine Shortage Linked to Reduced Deaths In Babies In the summer of 2017, a malware virus mainly affecting the Ukraine, found its way onto the mainframe computer systems of Merck wreaking havoc for the company. The malware was called “NotPetya,” referring to the ransomeware family Petya, which disables computer systems and demands a ransom to be paid in bitcoin before it will restore access to a company’s files. It is destructive and costly, something Merck was to find out as its sales and manufacturing operations were disrupted by the June 7th attack. According to the Wall Street Journal, the incident cost the pharmaceutical giant $670 million to remediate, but more importantly, it caused disruption to the production of two of Merck’s pediatric vaccines: Gardasil 9 (Human Papillomavirus) and Recombivax (Hepatitis B virus), vaccines to help prevent sexually transmitted infections. During the crisis, Merck borrowed from a CDC vaccine stockpile, in order to meet supply commitments for Gardasil 9. However, that was not the case with Recombivax, the Hepatitis B vaccine given to all babies beginning the first day of life.
23andMe Just Got FDA Approval for a DNA Cancer Test DNA testing company 23andMe Inc. said it has gotten the green light from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to offer consumers a test for a hereditary colorectal cancer syndrome.23andMe said it will now be able to tell customers whether they have two genetic variants that influence MUTYH-associated polyposis, a rare condition associated with an increased risk of colorectal cancer. The FDA didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. It’s the second test associated with cancer risk for which 23andMe has received FDA clearance. Last March, the Mountain View, California-based firm began offering a report on three genetic variants associated with increased risk of breast cancer in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes. The BRCA tests were controversial. Though there are more than 1,000 known BRCA mutations, the 23andMe test focused on three variants most common in people of Ashkenazi Jewish descent.
AOC Stands By Prediction ‘World Is Going To End In 12 Years’ If We Don’t Address Climate Change On Tuesday, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stood by her prediction that “the world is going to end in 12 years” if climate change is not addressed and slammed the GOP as out of touch for suggesting it was a “gaffe.” “For some reason GOP seems to think this is a gaffe, but it’s actually a generational difference,” Cortez said on Twitter, quoting a widely-shared video of her prediction. “Young people understand that climate change is an existential threat: 3,000 Americans died in Hurricane María.” “The UN says we’ve got 12 years left to fix it,” she said, linking to an article from The Guardian. The UN said in 1989 that the world would end and “entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth” if global warming was not reversed by the year 2000.

Finally, enjoy this poem by none other than Ty M. Bollinger:
To jab or not to jab?
When it comes to vaccine freedom, we must fight for the right to choose…
Our bodies are not government property, this battle we cannot lose!
If vaccines do no harm, why has almost four billion dollars been paid…
….to families of damaged kids, in a span of just three decades?
If you dare to question, you are mocked and called a “kook.”
Since when is it imprudent to ask for a little scientific proof?
The science is never settled. That’s a contradiction in terms.
Rational parents must be allowed to voice their legitimate concerns.
When it comes to vaccine choice, “zero tolerance” leads to oppression.
Say “NO” to mandatory vaccines, for this is a despicable transgression.
Remember … “mandatory” vaccines violate the laws of this land.
As for the Bollinger family, this is most definitely our “line in the sand.”
So please make your voices heard and be brave but not violent,
For all it takes for evil to win is for good people to be silent.
Remember Friends, The Power to Heal is Yours!
