Hour 1 – Sacred Fire of Liberty!
It’s that time of the week where we get to explore the political healing that this country needs so desperately! Cheryl Chumley is here to help us dissect the latest political news that’s fit to print:
Republicans in fine form — finally Republicans, it must be said, are actually showing some bold stripes on the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh. And it’s about time, wouldn’t you say? The GOP for years — years! — during the previous administration practically rolled over and played dead, and allowed the progressive-slash-socialist intents of the Barack Obama White House to take great strides. Obamacare, immigration, bank and business bailouts, wheelings and dealings with Iran, climate change and other radical environmental provisions, transgender bathroom and locker room rights in the schools — these were all the marks of the previous president’s devil-may-care attitude with the Constitution, aided and abetted by a complicit and cowed set of GOPers in Congress. Yes, Democrats held the majorities in both houses for a time — but not for all of former President Barack Obama’s time. Back then, it didn’t seem to matter, though. What Obama wanted, Obama got.

U.N. court’s hilarious attempt to order U.S. You had me at the headline. “U.S. ordered to lift some Iran sanctions by International Court of Justice,” blared NBC News, above its Associated Press story. Ordered is a pretty funny word, given U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton’s recent takedown of another global judicial body, just last month. Bolton, in fiery September remarks in Washington, D.C. — delivered first in the context of discussing the International Criminal Court’s attempt to investigate U.S. military members for war crimes in Afghanistan, and second in the context of responding to this same court’s call to haul Israel in for human rights’ abuses against Palestinians — had nothing but scorn. “The United States will use any means necessary to protect our citizens and those of our allies from unjust prosecution by this illegitimate court,” Bolton said. Bam. In your face, ICC.
Report: The DEA Ignored the FDA’s Call to Deschedule CBD On Sept. 27, the Drug Enforcement Administration for the first time rescheduled a cannabis-derived product: Epidiolex, a treatment for epileptic seizures. The DEA placed Epidiolex in Schedule V of the 1970 Controlled Substances Act, the classification for drugs with accepted medical applications and a low potential for abuse. But much to the consternation of cannabis advocates, CBD, the cannabinoid that is the active ingredient in Epidiolex, was not itself rescheduled. CBD remains in Schedule I, the highly restrictive classification for drugs that supposedly have a high potential for abuse and no legitimate medical applications. But according to a letter that FDA sent to the DEA that has just recently been made public, the FDA also believes that CBD should be removed from the list of scheduled drugs. The Marijuana Moment website reports that in a May letter to the DEA, the FDA had actually questioned whether CBD should be considered a controlled substance at all. The letter reveals something of the bureaucratic back-and-forth between the two agencies concerning CBD and its status under both the Controlled Substances Act and the U.N. Single Convention treaty, which sets international standards for the classification of controlled substances.
FDA Turned Your $10 Supplement into a $40,000 Drug Earlier this year, we told you about an FDA back-channel that allows drug companies to turn supplements into drugs—and remove the supplement versions from the market. This has happened to a popular and medically important version of vitamin B6 (pyridoxamine), and with the FDA’s approval of a new drug to treat sickle cell anemia, the same could happen to L-glutamine. Unless we close a back-channel at the FDA, more and more supplements will be turned into expensive drugs, and consumers won’t be able to manage their health cheaply and naturally with the supplement versions. Last year, the FDA announced the approval of Endari, a drug for sickle cell disease. Endari is an oral powder comprised of L-glutamine, an important amino acid currently available as a supplement. The drug company, Emmaus Medical, Inc., filed an investigational new drug (IND) application—demonstrating their investigation of L-glutamine as a drug—on May 15, 1997. This is important because there is no new dietary ingredient (NDI) notification for L-glutamine. (Think of an NDI notification as a “new supplement” notification; by law an NDI notification must be filed on supplements that came to market after 1994.)
Hour 2 – Noah’s Ark 2.0?
Scientists call for microbial ‘Noah’s Ark’ to protect global health A Rutgers University-New Brunswick-led team of researchers is calling for the creation of a global microbiota vault to protect the long-term health of humanity. Such a Noah’s Ark of beneficial germs would be gathered from human populations whose microbiomes are uncompromised by antibiotics, processed diets and other ill effects of modern society, which have contributed to a massive loss of microbial diversity and an accompanying rise in health problems. The human microbiome includes the trillions of microscopic organisms that live in and on our bodies, contributing to our health in a myriad of ways. The researchers, who outline their proposal this week in the journal Science, liken their idea to the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, the world’s largest collection of crop diversity created in case of natural or human-made disasters. “We’re facing a growing global health crisis, which requires that we capture and preserve the diversity of the human microbiota while it still exists,” said Maria Gloria Dominguez-Bello, the lead author and a professor in Rutgers-New Brunswick’s Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology and Department of Anthropology. “These microbes co-evolved with humans over hundreds of millennia. They help us digest food, strengthen our immune system and protect against invading germs. Over a handful of generations, we have seen a staggering loss in microbial diversity linked with a worldwide spike in immune and other disorders.”

FORCING MASKS ON UNVACCINATED HEALTHCARE WORKERS RULED “UNREASONABLE” Are you a nurse or healthcare worker who refused the flu shot and is being forced to wear a mask by your employer during the flu season? A major win for both science and the exercise of informed consent has just occurred thanks to the work of the Ontario Nurses Association (ONA). The legal victory appears to have made a major advancement towards settling the vaccination or mask (VOM) policies being implemented at hospitals and care facilities. The policies in question state that for those healthcare workers, including nurses, who have not received the annual influenza vaccine a surgical or procedural mask must be worn in areas where patients are present and/or patient care is delivered during all or most of the flu season. ONA immediately contested the VOM policy in every Ontario hospital where it was introduced. It was in 2014 when the ONA’s first legal challenge to the VOM policy was heard against Sault Area Hospital, designated as the lead case. After hearing multiple days of evidence, Arbitrator James K.A. Hayes gave this statement in conclusion of the case: “I find that the Policy was introduced at SAH for the purpose of driving up vaccination rates. I also find that the weight of scientific evidence said to support the VOM Policy on patient safety grounds is insufficient to warrant the imposition of a mask-wearing requirement for up to six months every year. Absent adequate support for the freestanding patient safety purpose alleged, I conclude that the Policy operates to coerce influenza immunization and, thereby, undermines the collective agreement right of employees to refuse vaccination.”
HHS terminates fetal tissue research contract after outcry from anti-abortion groups Health and Human Services has terminated an agreement with a fetal tissue research facility that was providing fetal tissue to the Food and Drug Administration. HHS said late Monday that it canceled the contract with the company, Advanced Bioscience Resources, because it didn’t include “appropriate protections” for fetal tissue procurement. The agency’s statement did not go into specifics. The agency said in a statement that it has “initiated a comprehensive review of all research involving fetal tissue to ensure consistency with statutes and regulations governing such research.” The FDA signed a contract with Advanced Bioscience Resources in June to acquire fetal tissue for research into creating mice with human immune systems. A group of more than 30 anti-abortion groups wrote to HHS earlier this month calling for an end to the contract.
Hug A Scientist
Science confirms what the heart already knows: Hugs really do make you feel better Feeling down in the dumps? Stressed? A little off-kilter because of some disagreement? Hug it out! A new study suggests that just reaching out and touching someone — consensually, of course — can reduce bad feelings associated with the typical ups and downs of our social interactions. The study from the Department of Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University, published this week in PLOS ONE, looked at the social interactions of more than 400 people over two weeks. A summary of their daily activities, moods and physical interactions revealed a causal link between emotional states, conflicts and the number of hugs a person gave or received. “Results indicated that there was an interaction between hug receipt and conflict exposure such that receiving a hug was associated with a smaller conflict-related decrease in positive affect and a smaller conflict-related increase in negative affect when assessed concurrently,” the study reads. In plainer English, hugging helped people feel less poorly after some kind of conflict or negative event during their day.
