94% of Women Failed a Women’s Health IQ Quiz

Did you know that more women die of heart disease than all of the cancers combined? The quiz found that 9 in 10 women do not know that heart disease is the leading cause of death for women, 8 in 10 do not know lung cancer is the deadliest cancer among women, and nearly 3 in 4 women do not know lack of sleep or hearing loss can damage the brain. A new survey from MDVIP found that COVID-19 currently ranks as the top health concern among women, the same survey shows that American women are not getting the information they need ​from their primary care provider (PCP) to address the real medical risks they face.  Women rank PCPs as the most important resource for their health, however, nearly a third of women felt rushed during appointments, not taken seriously regarding their concerns, and overall dissatisfied with their experience.

Dr. Andrea Klemes the Chief Medical Officer at MDVIP joined John today to talk about women’s health. MDVIP was born in 2000 from an idea that started in the minds of forward-thinking primary care doctors who felt the healthcare system was losing its way. They knew there was a better way to practice medicine and provide the level of care and attention their patients deserved.

Take the quiz.

Air Rage

Richard V. Battle

Air Rage is Merely a Symptom of a Much Bigger Change in our Country

Government’s “one size fits all” arbitrary decisions hamper our physical, emotional, and financial health. Regardless of case distribution or compliance success. If adults have a hard time learning on a Zoom call, why do we think kids will do better 8 hours a day 5 days a week?  The threat of liability lawsuits based on the low threshold of “negligence” vs. “gross negligence” slows re-openings and sparks encounters like “air rage”.  We are and will see more pushback from people as fewer and fewer trust governments and businesses.

John and Richard talked about maks wearing and why some people want to wear one.

-Bitcoin is still responsible for over 50% of the cryptocurrency market’s value
-Bitcoin’s individual market value is $1.1Trillion
-Ethereum currently has a market cap of $241Billion, making up nearly 1/8 of the total crypto market 

-Recent Ethereum spike could be a sign of rotation within the market, and diversification by retail investors
-Bitcoin’s reduced volatility has further legitimized it as a storage of value, opening the door for retail buyers to invest in cheaper alt-coins. 

 -The biggest difference between Ethereum and BTC is that BTC is a storage of value, whereas the Ethereum network is viewed as a software platform for development of blockchain applications and businesses
-Ethereum is used as a form of payment to complete transactions on the Ethereum Blockchain
-Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a major contributor in the ongoing development of the ETH network
-Ethereum is also the underlying technology for the current NFT boom
-The future of ETH technology will be banking, lending, and facilitation of global transactions taking place in online markets
-Institutional investors have been more open in recent months about their interests in bitcoin and blockchain technologies
-This has rapidly legitimized the crypto market, and has shown retail investors that the crypto boom may be far from over
-The combination of Institutional and retail demand for Bitcoin, ETH and many other alt-coins has resulted in the lowest supply of crypto on exchanges ever before.
