Wednesday on The Robert Scott Bell Show:

Why have rates of ADHD in kids gotten so high? ADHD cases in the U.S. have risen significantly, with 1 in 9 children diagnosed by 2022. Increased awareness among doctors, parents, and teachers has led tomore diagnoses. Improved treatments and a greater number of providers comfortable with diagnosing ADHD have also contributed. The COVID-19 pandemic likely exacerbated symptoms and made them more noticeable to parents. Changes in diagnostic guidelines, including the ability to diagnose children with both autism and ADHD, and an increase in ADHD discussions on social media have further influenced the rise. Some children might be misdiagnosed due to overlapping symptoms with anxiety and depression. Despite these trends, 30% of children diagnosed with ADHD did not receive medication or behavioral therapy in 2022, partly due to treatment access issues and medication shortages. This reflects a need for better support and resources for families dealing with ADHD

The U.S.-Mexico tortilla war Mexico has banned genetically modified (GM) corn and phased out glyphosate, citing health and environmental concerns. President López Obrador emphasized the need to protect native corn and public health. This move, part of Mexico’s food sovereignty efforts, clashes with U.S. interests, leading to a formal complaint by the U.S. under the US-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). The U.S. argues Mexico’s stance is unscientific, while Mexico cites increasing research on the potential dangers of GM corn and glyphosate. The case will be decided by a USMCA panel. This dispute highlights broader concerns about the global food system dominated by biotech firms and raises questions about the safety and regulation of GM crops and associated herbicides. Mexican officials assert that protecting native corn varieties is crucial for cultural and environmental reasons, while also addressing health risks linked to glyphosate exposure.

Weight-loss drug forecasts jump to $150 billion as supply grows Increased demand for weight-loss drugs from Novo Nordisk and Eli Lilly has led experts toproject global sales could reach $150 billion annually by the early 2030s. Previously, top sales estimates were around $100 billion. This surge is driven by growing consumer interest, despite most insurers not covering these drugs. Global spending on obesity medications was $24 billion in 2023 and could rise to $131 billion by 2028, with annual growth estimates revised from 13% to 27%. Expansion of insurance coverage, patient adherence, and potential use for other diseases could influence these figures. Current supply constraints are easing as production increases. Analysts highlight the drugs’ potential to reduce costly health emergencies and treat chronic conditions, bolstering their case for broader insurance coverage. Shares of Lilly and Novo have risen significantly, and over 80 experimental obesity drugs are in human trials. These developments indicate robust competition and innovation in the market, potentially widening access and offsetting price competition.

Meals for GLP-1 Users: Nestlé Launches New Frozen Food Line Nestlé has introduced Vital Pursuit, a frozen food line designed for individuals on GLP-1 medications like Ozempic and Wegovy. These drugs are increasingly popular for managing weight loss and diabetes. The new food line, launching in fall 2024, includes nutrient-rich options such as sandwich melts, pizzas, and frozen bowls. While experts appreciate the convenience, they emphasize that processed foods cannot replace natural, whole foods. Dieticians stress the importance of a balanced diet to ensure adequate intake of essential nutrients. GLP-1 users often experience reduced appetite, which can lead to nutritional deficiencies if not carefully managed. Whole foods, rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, are crucial for maintaining overall health. Processed foods, though fortified, do not offer the same benefits as natural sources. Nestlé’s line should be seen as a supplement rather than a primary food source. Maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle is critical for individuals on these medications to achieve the best health outcomes.

Hour 2

Tedros Must Face Reality Tedros Ghebreyesus’s recent address at the World Health Assembly highlights significant issues with the WHO’s current direction. His focus on pandemics and the proposed PandemicAgreement and amendments to the International Health Regulations (IHR) suggest a troubling shift towards greater centralization of power at the WHO. The policies endorsed by the WHO during the Covid-19 pandemic resulted in significant harm, including up to 20 million additional deaths, mostly in low- and middle-income countries. The WHO’s actions disrupted supply lines, increased poverty, and diverted funding from essential health services. The increased deaths from malaria and tuberculosis and the impact on child mortality underscore the detrimental effects of these policies. Furthermore, the WHO’s promotion of mass vaccination over addressing fundamental health issues like nutrition and sanitation raises concerns about its priorities. The organization’s current stance on pandemic risks, which ignores historical data showing a decline in infectious disease deaths, and its failure to address the potential laboratory origins of Covid-19, suggest a need for a profound reevaluation of its role and influence.

They’re in pans, fruit, dust – and even tap water. But can I eradicate toxic forever chemicals from my home? Forever chemicals, or PFAS, are pervasive in everyday items such as nonstick cookware, cleaning products, and even tap water. These chemicals are known for their persistence in the environment and potential health risks, including cancer and reduced immunity. Attempting to eliminate PFAS from home life involves replacing nonstick pans with PFAS-free alternatives, avoiding foods with high PFAS contamination like strawberries, and using water filters that remove PFAS. Cleaning products also need to be scrutinized for PFAS content. PFAS-free labels are more reliable than PFOA-free or PFC-free labels. While replacing items, it’s essential to dispose of old ones responsibly to prevent environmental contamination. Despite these efforts, complete eradication is challenging due to the widespread presence of PFAS in household dust, electronics, and even personal care products. The experiment underscores the complexity of avoiding these chemicals and highlights the need for stronger regulations to protect public health.

EPA accused of ‘egregious’ misconduct in PFAS testing of pesticides The EPA is accused of providing false information regarding the presence of PFAS in pesticides. A watchdog group, Public Employees forEnvironmental Responsibility (Peer), alleges that the EPA misrepresented test results, failing to disclose findings of PFAS contamination in certain pesticide products. This claim contradicts a May 2023 press release in which the EPA stated no PFAS were found. The controversy arose from a study by former EPA researcher Steven Lasee, who reported PFAS in pesticide samples. Peer obtained EPA documents via a Freedom of Information Act request, revealing that the agency did find PFAS in tested products, contradicting its public statements. The EPA’s alleged misconduct includes ignoring positive test results and potentially succumbing to pressure from pesticide companies. Despite these allegations, the EPA maintains that its findings and methodologies are sound. This dispute highlights significant concerns over the transparency and integrity of the EPA’s testing processes, with implications for public health and regulatory practices.

Proven! Cell phones can cause infertility and thyroid disease Cell phone radiation, specifically electromagnetic frequencies, has been linked to thyroid diseases such as hypothyroidism and the growth of thyroid goiters. Additionally, there is significant evidence that cell phone radiation can cause infertility in both men and women. Research highlights the damage to male sperm, indicating that men should avoid carrying phones in their pockets to reduce the risk of sperm damage, testicular cancer, and prostate cancer. Metal objects in pockets can amplify radiation toxicity. Cell phones also interfere with the body’s ability to absorb thyroid supplements, exacerbating thyroid conditions. The article emphasizes the invisible yet harmful nature of cell radiation and advocates for reduced cell phone use and exposure to mitigate these health risks. The information was part of a broader discussion at a conference that focused on the health impacts of radiation from electronics and other sources.

Unearthing nature’s remedy: An exploration into Lycopodium’s medicinal and therapeutic potential Lycopodium, a genus of the Lycopodiaceae family, hasbeen traditionally used in Chinese medicine for over a millennium to treat various ailments, including liver and urinary disorders, chronic lung diseases, and digestive issues. Recent pharmacological studies have confirmed that extracts from Lycopodium possess antimicrobial, anti-tumor, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective properties. The primary bioactive compounds in Lycopodium are alkaloids, serratene triterpenoids, and flavonoids, which have diverse therapeutic applications. Research has identified over 500 secondary metabolites in Lycopodium species, with ongoing studies exploring their potential in treating conditions like Alzheimer’s disease. Additionally, processed Lycopodium spores, which are robust and possess UV shielding and antioxidant properties, show promise as drug delivery carriers. Despite these promising applications, comprehensive clinical trials are necessary to confirm the therapeutic efficacy, recommended dosages, and safety of Lycopodium extracts. The expanding interest in Lycopodium underscores its potential to contribute significantly to complementary and alternative medicine, offering new treatment options with minimal side effects.
