We catch up on the latest news on COVID19 and the new vaccine booster set to be authorized and available at scale to everyone in America. Hoping that the uptake will be higher than it has been for the boosters available and while we may have some annual requirements for vaccination there is some hope on the horizon with broad spectrum Coronavirus vaccines and better targeting with nasally administered vaccines
We discuss the recent news from Amazon who purchased One Medical and the concurrent closing down of Amazon Care and we discuss the increasing research focus on Psychedelics with the latest use case to treat alcoholism.
Listen in to hear our discussion on the continuing drop in life expectancy in the US and some of the troubling components and contributors to this and the progress made in combatting the rise in vaping especially in the younger generation but unfortunately not being fully enforced.
