7:18 am

7:47 am
here with tips and how to lose that fat and lower the risk of some of those diseases. good morning, karen. good morning, stephanie. so walk us through how you know, the different how different body types should be thinking approaching the treatment to body fat. right? so we have the pear shape and then we have the apple shape. >> so the pear shaped people tend to carry their weight below the equator that in their hips there, said there and thighs. now, that's a different type of fat. there's the also apple shape people who tend to carry a right there in the abdomen. so those people, they are more apple show the shape. the research shows that those people have tend to have a higher risk for chronic diseases. so it's because of the fact that these fats are different. >> and so walk us through how these different how facts are different in how they
7:48 am
accumulate on the body differently. >> so the one set for the the a pear shape people. they tend to be more of the sep. 2 taney is fat. so that is if you've ever had a skin folds, that that caliber a protest, think of this as subcutaneous fat. it's right underneath. they scan and right above the muscle. so it's stuff that you can actually pinch and measure. so that's the subcutaneous fat, the other fat that's in your belly tends to be the this real fat. this ruh is the the internal organs that this is the one that's really dangerous. so this real fat tends to embed around this real organs, the heart, the lungs, the liver, and then also there's a sheet in front of what's apron like tissue that's in friend of these organs. and that will tend to fill up with fat if you've
7:49 am
ever notice some people that have the the beer belly, it tends get very hard. and that's the dangerous, visceral fat. >> and what sort of diseases are linked to visceral fat and why is it a health risk? >> so we have the links are heart disease, high blood pressure, high blood pressure because of the district fat actually secrete a protein that constricts blood vessels also cancers, cancers of the prop of the pancreas, the, the colon esophagus, dementia and also diabetes. and i really want to emphasize dementia because we think of dementia, something that kind of just happens to us. but it's very tightly associated with our lifestyle. so the kaiser permanente did a study of 6500 men and women and followed them for 37 years. and they they concluded that more visceral fat because a higher risk of dementia.
7:50 am
>> and and how much belly fat is too much? does it that's a good so way to measure you can actually get an accurate measurement through an mri scan. but it's the best way easy way is to just measure your waist line. so measure it right there at the billikens few your belly button and then go right around and your your waist measurement should be no more than half of your your height in inches. so if you are 72 inches taller and your your. abdomen should be no more than 36 inches. and in in the waistline can finner people also have a visceral fat as well. >> thinner people. they they research on these thinner people. and yes, they do have can have this real fat, even
7:51 am
with people that followed there, healthy diet. so a lot of it is tied to inactivity as well as as diet and heredity. all right. so >> the big question for me then is, you know what i mean? how can how can we lose the belly fat? >> so what at number one, reduce alcohol intake. that's that's how they got that nicknamed beer belly. because when you drink a lot of alcohol that actually that liver has to metabolize the alcohol. so it's not doing its job. the metabolizing fact. so it starts to store and then also they found that eating 10 grams of fiber soluble fiber a day. >> like oatmeal, oatmeal beans are a good source to sell. double fiber. that helps to reduce the a visceral fat by 4% eating less processed foods
7:52 am
because are filled with salt and fats and trans fats. those of the things that are going to contribute to at domino fat also stress is really important because stress increases the the release of cortisol, which is associated with belly fat. so belly fat. also this this fat also see creates cortisol. so you're kind on this vicious cycle of so creating it as well as as storing it. so real important to reduce your stress and get plenty of sleep. >> yeah. and i think exercise is also going to help a lot with that, too, as well. >> actually, that's a really important component. so moving more, i just have to emphasize, you know, if you are carrying a lot of belly fat, it is so important to to start addressing it today to reduce that because of its linked to dementia and heart disease and all these chronic diseases that we don't really

8:15 am
and early this morning. it's a great to be here in person, stephanie. so, you know, hospitalizations covid cases seems like they're reaching some pretty high rates compared to the rest of the state. did we get to this point here in the bay area because we were doing so well, the beginning of this? well, stephanie, there's several reasons. i think many people think the first that we're kind of victims of own success. we really exposed to the virus were sheltering in place for working at home. >> we could afford to look at home and now with highly transmissible it's not working as much, but one would say that we did it at the right time. i know what all these beacon probably engage in life knowing how to protect ourselves. i think the second reason is people think we're doing more testing compared to parts of the that's probably less of an important reason to me. the 3rd is that there are lot of people from other areas coming to the area. so when no longer be area risk where massachusetts for us in new york risk and the world's risk because they all coming here to visit and then 4th lee. i
8:16 am
think you know where going on with enthusiasm like the rest of the and not different from and anyone else. >> you know, one of the best ways that we've heard from medical experts like yourself to put that we can protect ourselves is getting a booster shots right? so we know that the boosters for kids between the ages of 5 to 11 was just approved. they became available in the bay area this weekend. now, this is something that parents should be rushing out to get their kids. yeah, frankly, if i had a 5 to 11 year-old, i would go out and get that as soon as possible. and the reason is that. >> that's how the vaccine works best. you give it a 1, 2 punch in any way, a few months and remind immune system. i think that also because the kids 5 to 11 vaccines, one-third the adult dose. i think if anybody needs that, it's them. and also we need to build a wall of immunity. so even though kids not has not like adults don't have as much serious disease. we still have
8:17 am
to immunize them so that it protects the household. >> with the reassurance for parents who might be a little apprehensive about the safety of this. well, the safety profile is fantastic. again, it's a lower dose. that's the same goes for the booster shot. >> and there are no my day meyer kind. itis cases or heart inflammation because it tracks with what they ate purity. older teens or young adult males and the cdc also recommended that seniors get their next booster >> what is the message for folks of the older generation who might be a little bit hesitant about this? well, i think first of all, stephanie, it's really important for everyone to get their first booster shot. >> i think the debate is being lost with booster in general. but make no mistake about it. that for was to shop for events, deaths and we have that rescinded real micron, the second booster shot. i think given the current wave in the country, the feds are
8:18 am
recommending that for those over 50 and those over 12 way immune compromised. >> you know what should what kind of conversation should say? i be having with my my parents who are in their 60's about getting this booster? >> well, i think we have a new variant of this is a new time. it's completely safe. there's no risk of immune exhaustion or more side effects and particularly for seniors. it not just prevents infection. it protects >> and let's talk a little bit too about this new antiviral pill treatment paxlovid with the safety around that and is that are recommended for can anyone take it? >> for smallpox of it is really a game changer. it's a pill. it's readily available. just yes. last night a prescribed it to someone you taken within the first 3 to 5 days. you prevent hospitalization by as much as 89%. it's pretty much for most people. when you look at the criteria, but time is money
8:19 am
need to get that diagnosis. you need to get that prescription early enough and, you know, with paxlovid, we can have a very, very few that seats. if everyone uses that appropriately. i remember when i was first covering paxlovid when it was being tried out in different hospitals. >> they were specifically looking to use it on patients with more severe cases of covid. can someone with a milder case of covid ask their doctor for a prescription for this? yes, definitely. that's the myth of paxlovid. unlike the other treatments and early treatment, i think it's really democratizing treatment and more people are eligible for it. then they believe scything people should have a pox plan. they should talk their primary care physicians before they get infected. they should check that drug interactions. all right. and we still have some time here. so i like to ask you about monkey pox. all right. this is something that we're starting to hear a lot more about in the news. i believe there was at least one case detected in the u.s. on the east coast.
8:20 am
>> you walk us through how concerned you are about this. i'm curious about monkeypox, but not very concerned, but it's a very different situation that hasn't been seen. >> with monkeypox virus before, i mean that it's a multi-use. the affecting people in multiple countries without having been exposed to places where comes from, which is central and east and west africa. what sort of symptoms come with monkeypox that people should so it's sort of looking like covid fever muscle fatigue, but 2 weeks later wants 2 weeks later. you get this on mistake, a bull rush that starts in the trunk was to the extremities and looks like a pox of fluid filled blister. oh, goodness. that does not sound pleasant at all. >> but as far as we know, is it? >> deadly disease? well, the mortality rate in this particular strain is less than one percent. and we haven't had any fatalities in the u.s.. we have monkeypox outbreak and and prairie dogs and the people take care of them. back in 2003 when more
8:21 am
than 70 people got infected because they were handling these animals had will cause with these african rats in the same since then, you know, no one has really done poorly. they haven't needed any anti viral. so special treatment, but awareness is everything because it is transmissible on this. new monkeypox was seeing must be transmitted from human to human, even though it's not usually a thing. and so what is the big public health and safety message for families here in the bay area? >> i yeah, i think recognition is key contacting your health authorities. if you notice it because but not panic, not changing pines. if you're traveling, don't worry to change it. i'm definitely not panicked about it. i'm just curious. and what is the reminder that you'd like to share with folks here in the bay area when it comes to covid? covid isn't going anywhere we soon. i think you have to think about abc's air wear your mask. be booster shots. definitely important. as we said, see, think about i
8:22 am

9:10 am
pack the jacket to for you, but to be quite warm. it looks like by the middle of the week there for you. those winds, by the way, for today haven't popping a little bit with the heating of the day. we lose it at night. it's a little bit of breeze leftover and little bit more of an onshore wind. again, that's his latest tomorrow afternoon. so that will be kind of a nice little bit of relief here as we start to see temperatures climb in the high gets parked over the right spot. the winds will probably be shut down at the surface. at least today. we're talking much the same 70's, the bay 80's and because the east bay shoreline will be treated back to the 80's when the heat wave starts really hit this week as warming quickly, 90's happening inland through thursday, thursday preview the first day in the bunch. we'll see that break. and then for lateathis week, quickly cooling some scattered clouds on friday. and some of the models are kind of winking at us that might get a couple stray showers. that is probably not going to be a lot quantitatively these models window into to us all the season like this. but with the plus side of it is it does moisten up the lower levels of the atmosphere and that we can use as a fire retardant. temperatures today, 68 1 on

9:15 am
1% from where they were last year at this time. wow. what we're really also noticing this time of year, we're starting to run those multiple arms, which we had, as you mentioned in concord, that turned into a second alarm fire. and we burned approximately 30 acres before we got it under control. and that particular fire is completely extinguished at this point or yes, it took us about an hour to stop for progress. and then we're out there for another 2 or 3 up >> and what sort of conditions are? almost aggravating or creating more wildfires this year compared to last year around this time last year. >> what we saw on friday we have that low humidity and then with some decent wind gusts and high winds, a fire starts us want just really takes off. and that's what happened on friday. will pass the fire started relatively small. but within a matter of 15, 20 minutes quickly, escalated to go 10 acres, 15 acres and then 30 acres. all
9:16 am
24. we brought it under control. you know? >> we've seen some pretty bad wildfires over the last several years. in 2018, there was the campfire up in paradise. and in that in that area, why does this keep obviously, conversations have been had about wildfire. danger. >> yes, so this year we're seeing earlier than normal because of the lack of precipitation that we had over winter months. and now we're already experiencing some of those, you know, dry, hot, windy days that when the fire does rather than it just being contained to maybe a half acre, we extinguished with one unit. that's where those multi alarm fires typically occur. and you'll see us out there for several hours before we're able to get get to mop up and get under control. >> and really, so it's the it's a it sounds like of the weather really has a lot to do with it. and the temperatures out there. >> yes, the lack of part its precipitation that we had over the winter months along you know, when we get those red
9:17 am
flag days or no friday wasn't even a red flag day for us. but it was very low humidity. and we had some pretty good sustained wind gusts. and that's what caused that fire is quite so quickly. >> so what are your fire crews working on right now in terms of gearing up? are you adding extra staffing this over the next few weeks in anticipation of more possible wildfires. >> so we do have through the next several weeks, actually through the rest of the season. now it will be staffed along with we've got our crew 12 or hand crew fully staffed up now for the remainder of the year. we've done lot of mitigation work. in fact, this weekend, we're doing some shipping days out and richmond area last couple weeks. we've done some shade. if you break out in the state parks with a murder in the fire department we're done controlled burning. practice was some firing operations out in rodeo on the phillips 66 property
9:18 am
