What the heck is Monkey Pox...and how worried should we actually be?
A discussion with John Meissner, who received his Doctorate of Medicine at Duke University School of Medicine and has been a Bioweapons researcher at Porton Down, England, and Novosibirsk, Russia.
We start this episode with the news of the most recent mass shooting at a medical campus in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where according to the New York Times:
calls of the shooting at a medical building crackled across police radios just before 5 p.m. on Wednesday. As officers rushed inside — following a trail of bullet casings and yelling out “Tulsa police!” — they heard the gunshots end, officials said, then found that a man had killed four people and himself.
Chief Franklin said the gunman had recently undergone back surgery and was upset about continued pain. He killed the doctor who performed that surgery and three others using two guns purchased in recent days, including an AR-15-style rifle he bought the afternoon of the shooting, the chief said.
I discuss my thoughts on this particular horrid event and how it related to the epidemic of chronic pain patients being denied treatment across the US.
We then discuss the Monkey Pox and its history with local John Meissner. He received his Doctorate of Medicine at Duke University School of Medicine and has been a Bioweapons researcher at Porton Down, England, and Novosibirsk, Russia. He discusses how worried we should be with the first verified cases here in Colorado. We also discuss practical ways to protect ourselves and our loved ones from this new storm on the horizon.
