Coronavirus Daily Digest: May 29, 2020

The CDC presents expansive guidelines for reopening American offices. Infections and deaths are still rising in a dozen states. And for the first time ever, the Boston Marathon is canceled. Here’s the latest news on coronavirus:

  • Let’s talk reopening: The CDC has issued sweeping new guidelines on the safest ways to reopen offices. In New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio expects up to 400,000 residents to head back to work in the first half of next month, as the city prepares to begin lifting some of its most stringent coronavirus restrictions. Illinois is joining many of its neighboring Midwest states in reopening some retail shops, restaurants, salons, and other businesses today, but Chicagoans will have to wait.
  • The panel assembled by President Donald Trump to confront the pandemic has been sharply curtailed while the White House looks ahead to reopening.
  • Requiring patients to visit a hospital, clinic, or medical office to get an abortion pill is needlessly risking their health during the COVID-19 pandemic, a group of physicians allege in a lawsuit that seeks to suspend the federal rule.
  • Organizers canceled the Boston Marathon for the first time in its history, ending a 124-year run that had persisted through two World Wars, a volcanic eruption and even another pandemic.
  • Even as the pace of new infections quickens — with nearly 700,000 new known cases reported in the last week after the pathogen found greater footholds in Latin America and the Gulf States — many countries are sputtering into reopenings at what experts fear may be the worst time. In South Korea, more than 500 schools closed again as the country moves to stamp out a resurgence of the coronavirus in the capital, Seoul, and its surrounding metropolitan area.
  • A New York Times reporter and photographer are driving more than 3,700 miles to document life as Europe reopens, where surreal moments now seem normal, and normality surreal.

Face Masks at Home Reduce COVID-19 Risk, Study Says

Masks are becoming more accepted, and sometimes required, in the United States.

When the coronavirus first came to the United States, federal officials said face masks weren’t necessary for people who weren’t sick.

But as the number of cases rose, the Trump administration performed an about-face. In early April, the administration urged Americans to start wearing masks when they couldn’t social distance, though President Trump said he wouldn’t wear one.

Two Emory University doctors on Thursday discussed how face masks have become more important and accepted.

“We’ve come full circle on this,” Colleen Kraft, MD, associate chief medical officer at Emory University, said during a media briefing. “Initially we’ve thought that there may not necessarily be a change to the spread of the transmission with the mask, but we really feel like now that there’s an aspect of protection and an aspect of a reminder of social distancing when you are wearing a mask, so we do recommend that individuals wear masks.”

Kraft said, “My mask protects me and protects others.”

Carlos del Rio, MD, distinguished professor of medicine, epidemiology and global health at Emory University, noted that the mask “acts almost as a visual reminder that something is going on. Since you don’t see the virus, you tend to think that it’s no longer here. This is just a way of reminding ourselves that, yes, the virus is still here and I need to do something about it.”

Health experts in the United States have come out strong for masks in public, but not in the home.

“We now have really clear evidence that wearing masks works — it’s probably a 50% protection against transmission,” Chris Murray, MD, director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, or IHME, at the University of Washington, told CNN.

Anthony Fauci, MD, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, told CNN that wearing masks and washing hands “are the things that everybody should seriously consider doing.”

Local and state leaders are embracing face masks.

On Thursday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he’ll sign an executive order allowing private businesses to bar people who don’t wear face masks. “The store owner has the right to protect himself,” Cuomo said at a news briefing.

Study Finds This Nut May Significantly Improve Your Heart Health

Participants included adult men and women between the ages of 30 and 70 years old, all of whom were at higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

After two weeks of eating traditional snacks, the participants were split into two groups. One group ate whole almonds, while the other continued eating the control snack (sweet and savory mini muffins) for a remaining four weeks. Both snacks provided a 20% total calorie intake.

At the end of the six weeks, researchers measured the cardiometabolic health markers in both groups.

Almond snackers showed an improvement in endothelial function, which according to the study is “a key factor in the initiation, progression, and disease manifestation of atherosclerosis.” Atherosclerosis is characterized by a buildup of fats and cholesterol in the arterial walls and can lead to other cardiovascular problems, if left untreated.

The almond group also lowered their low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, also called bad cholesterol. This is likely because snacks high in saturated fats were replaced with almonds, which are rich in unsaturated fats, phytosterols, and fiber, the study explains.

Overall, the almond-eating group lowered their cardiovascular disease risk by 32%.

Who in their right mind would want to eat bugs?

When I was a kid, if I were told that I’d be writing a book about diet and nutrition when I was older, let alone having been doing a health related radio show for over 36 years, I would’ve thought that whoever told me that was out of their mind. Living in Newark, New Jersey, my parents and I consumed anything and everything that had a face or a mother except for dead, rotting, pig bodies, although we did eat bacon (as if all the other decomposing flesh bodies were somehow miraculously clean). Going through high school and college it was no different. In fact, my dietary change did not come until I was in my 30’s.

Just to put things in perspective, after I graduated from Weequahic High School and before going to Seton Hall University, I had a part-time job working for a butcher. I was the delivery guy and occasionally had to go to the slaughterhouse to pick up products for the store. Needless to say, I had no consciousness nor awareness, as change never came then despite the horrors I witnessed on an almost daily basis.

After graduating with a degree in accounting from Seton Hall, I eventually got married and moved to a town called Livingston. Livingston was basically a yuppie community where everyone was judged by the neighborhood they lived in and their income. To say it was a “plastic” community would be an understatement.

Livingston and the shallowness finally got to me. I told my wife I was fed up and wanted to move. She made it clear she had to be near her friends and New York City. I finally got my act together and split for Colorado.

I was living with a lady in Aspen at the end of 1974, when one day she said, ” let’s become vegetarians”. I have no idea what possessed me to say it, but I said, “okay”! At that point I went to the freezer and took out about $100 worth of frozen, dead body parts and gave them to a welfare mother who lived behind us. Well, everything was great for about a week or so, and then the chick split with another guy.

So here I was, a vegetarian for a couple weeks, not really knowing what to do, how to cook, or basically how to prepare anything. For about a month, I was getting by on carrot sticks, celery sticks, and yogurt. Fortunately, when I went vegan in 1990, it was a simple and natural progression. Anyway, as I walked around Aspen town, I noticed a little vegetarian restaurant called, “The Little Kitchen”.

Let me back up just a little bit. It was April of 1975, the snow was melting and the runoff of Ajax Mountain filled the streets full of knee-deep mud. Now, Aspen was great to ski in, but was a bummer to walk in when the snow was melting.

I was ready to call it quits and I needed a warmer place. I’ll elaborate on that in a minute.

But right now, back to “The Little Kitchen”. Knowing that I was going to leave Aspen and basically a new vegetarian, I needed help. So, I cruised into the restaurant and told them my plight and asked them if they would teach me how to cook. I told them in return I would wash dishes and empty their trash. They then asked me what I did for a living and I told them I was an accountant.

The owner said to me, “Let’s make a deal. You do our tax return and we’ll feed you as well”. So for the next couple of weeks I was doing their tax return, washing their dishes, emptying the trash, and learning as much as I could.

But, like I said, the mud was getting to me. So I picked up a travel book written by a guy named Foder. The name of the book was, “Hawaii”. Looking through the book I noticed that in Lahaina, on Maui, there was a little vegetarian restaurant called,” Mr. Natural’s”. I decided right then and there that I would go to Lahaina and work at “Mr. Natural’s.” To make a long story short, that’s exactly what happened.

So, I’m working at “Mr. Natural’s” and learning everything I can about my new dietary lifestyle – it was great. Every afternoon we would close for lunch at about 1 PM and go to the Sheraton Hotel in Ka’anapali and play volleyball, while somebody stayed behind to prepare dinner.

Since I was the new guy, and didn’t really know how to cook, I never thought that I would be asked to stay behind to cook dinner. Well, one afternoon, that’s exactly what happened; it was my turn. That posed a problem for me because I was at the point where I finally knew how to boil water.

I was desperate, clueless and basically up the creek without a paddle. Fortunately, there was a friend of mine sitting in the gazebo at the restaurant and I asked him if he knew how to cook. He said the only thing he knew how to cook was enchiladas. He said that his enchiladas were bean-less and dairy-less. I told him that I had no idea what an enchilada was or what he was talking about, but I needed him to show me because it was my turn to do the evening meal.

Well, the guys came back from playing volleyball and I’m asked what was for dinner. I told them enchiladas; the owner wasn’t thrilled. I told him that mine were bean-less and dairy-less. When he tried the enchilada he said it was incredible. Being the humble guy that I was, I smiled and said, “You expected anything less”? It apparently was so good that it was the only item on the menu that we served twice a week. In fact, after about a week, we were selling five dozen every night we had them on the menu and people would walk around Lahaina broadcasting, ‘enchilada’s at “Natural’s” tonight’. I never had to cook anything else.

A year later the restaurant closed, and somehow I gravitated to a little health food store in Wailuku. I never told anyone I was an accountant and basically relegated myself to being the truck driver. The guys who were running the health food store had friends in similar businesses and farms on many of the islands. I told them that if they could organize and form one company they could probably lock in the State. That’s when they found out I was an accountant and “Down to Earth” was born. “Down to Earth” became the largest natural food store chain in the islands, and I was their Chief Financial Officer and co-manager of their biggest store for 13 years.

In 1981, I started to do a weekly radio show to try and expose people to a vegetarian diet and get them away from killing innocent creatures. I still do that show today. I pay for my own airtime and have no sponsors to not compromise my honesty. One bit of a hassle was the fact that I was forced to get a Masters Degree in Nutrition to shut up all the MD’s that would call in asking for my credentials.

My doing this radio show enabled me, through endless research, to see the corruption that existed within the big food industries, the big pharmaceutical companies, the biotech industries and the government agencies. This information, unconscionable as it is, enabled me to realize how broken our health system is. This will be covered more in depth in the Introduction and throughout the book and when you finish the book you will see this clearly and it will hopefully inspire you to make changes.

I left Down to Earth in 1989, got nationally certified as a sports injury massage therapist and started traveling the world with a bunch of guys that were making a martial arts movie. After doing that for about four years I finally made it back to Honolulu and got a job as a massage therapist at the Honolulu Club, one of Hawaii’s premier fitness clubs. It was there I met the love of my life who I have been with since 1998. She made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. She said,” If you want to be with me you’ve got to stop working on naked women”. So, I went back into accounting and was the Chief Financial Officer of a large construction company for many years.

Going back to my Newark days when I was an infant, I had no idea what a “chicken” or “egg” or “fish” or “pig” or “cow” was. My dietary blueprint was thrust upon me by my parents as theirs was thrust upon them by their parents. It was by the grace of God that I was able to put things in their proper perspective and improve my health and elevate my consciousness.

The road that I started walking down in 1975 has finally led me to the point of writing my book, “A Sane Diet For An Insane World”. Hopefully, the information contained herein will be enlightening, motivating, and inspiring to encourage you to make different choices. Doing what we do out of conditioning is not always the best course to follow. I am hoping that by the grace of the many friends and personalities I have encountered along my path, you will have a better perspective of what road is the best road for you to travel on, not only for your health but your consciousness as well.

Last but not least: after being vaccinated as a kid I developed asthma, which plagued me all of my life. In 2007 I got exposed to the organic sulfur crystals, which got rid of my asthma in 3 days and has not come back in over 10 years. That, being the tip of the iceberg, has helped people reverse stage 4 cancers, autism, joint pain, blood pressure problems, migraine headaches, erectile dysfunction, gingivitis, and more. Also, because of the detoxification effects by the release of oxygen that permeates and heals all the cells in the body, it removes parasites, radiation, fluoride, free radicals, and all the other crap that is thrust upon us in the environment by Big Business.

“I entered the healthcare world when I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer in 2009.

I happened upon a rare genetic syndrome called Cowden Syndrome which results from a mutation of the PTEN Gene. I met many of the criteria and still had difficulty getting someone to listen. As it turns out, I was right and I do have a PTEN mutation. When I was diagnosed in 2011, there was little to no information or support available. I chose to change that and our foundation was born. Today, we have grown five fold plus since inception and awareness has improved greatly.”

What does being healthy look like to you? 
Being healthy looks like practicing self-care in whatever way an individual sees fit.

What have you been doing to take care of your mental health while in quarantine? 
In order to take care of my mental health, I have been staying in contact with my friends and checking in on them periodically. I schedule social distancing coffee dates with friends where we sit on the roof of our cars and chat. Getting outside has been a huge help, as well as ensuring that I have someone to talk to about things so that it doesn’t stay bottled up inside.

What has been your favorite tech-free hobby? 
My favorite tech-free hobby has been spending time in the sun, whether I am taking my dog for a walk or reading a book.

What do you do to stay active? 
In order to stay active, I created a plan for myself to stick to. It consists of going for a run, practicing yoga, and going on solo hikes.

What has been your favorite food to make while in quarantine? 
My favorite food to make in quarantine has been omelettes in the morning.

How do you find motivation to stay healthy and active while in quarantine? 
A lot of my motivation comes from my dog, because I remind myself that while I can find things to do around the house all day, she can’t go anywhere unless I take her. I also remind myself that when my body feels good, my mind feels good and it makes my days easier and helps in seeing the good in the current situation.

Have you seen or felt any improvements in your physical or mental well-being after making positive changes in your life?
Due to the circumstances, my mental health began to deteriorate, but once I was able to find my new normal and establish coping skills to help me easily deal with day-to-day stress, I have been able to process my emotions in the moment. This has helped me to improve my mental and physical health, and I have been  using physical movement one of my useful coping skills.

Do you have any positive words of encouragement for others to create a healthier lifestyle? 
I recommend doing what works best for you and not what has worked for other people. It could take a while to even find the motivation to begin, but once you start you won’t want to stop. The motivation has to come from you and not someone else.

Strokes Are Deadlier When They Hit COVID Patients

By Steven Reinberg
HealthDay Reporter
FRIDAY, May 22, 2020 (HealthDay News) — COVID-19 hasn’t increased the risk for stroke, but when a stroke occurs it’s more likely to be fatal, a new study finds.

According to researchers, less than 1% of patients hospitalized for COVID-19 suffer a stroke. But they also found that people with COVID-19 who suffer a stroke are seven times more likely to die than people who have a stroke but aren’t infected with COVID-19.

“Our study suggests that stroke is an uncommon yet important complication of coronavirus, given that these strokes are more severe when compared with strokes occurring in patients who tested negative for the virus,” lead researcher Dr. Shadi Yaghi said in a New York University news release. He’s an assistant professor in the department of neurology at NYU Grossman School of Medicine in New York City.

For the study, Yaghi and his team identified 32 stroke patients among more than 3,500 being treated for COVID-19 at NYU hospitals between March 15 and April 19.

They compared these patients with stroke patients without the virus. The researchers found that stroke patients with COVID-19 had more severe symptoms than those without the virus. During the study period, 63% died, compared with 9% of those without the virus and 5% of those who had a stroke before the pandemic.

These findings add to the evidence that COVID-19 is associated with an increased risk for clotting, which can trigger a stroke, the researchers said.

“Our findings provide compelling evidence that widespread blood-clotting may be an important factor that is leading to stroke in patients with COVID-19.” said study co-author Dr. Jennifer Frontera, a professor in the department of neurology at NYU.

“The results point to anticoagulant, or blood thinner therapy, as a potential means of reducing the unusual severity of strokes in people with the coronavirus,” Frontera added in the release.

The report was published May 20 in the journal Stroke.
