You have found yourself smack dab in the middle of Episode #298

Now if you missed last week’s episode, we talked about vertibrogenic pain and fish oil benefit claims. Make sure you don’t miss that info. Keep up with the class.

On the personal end of things…..

Lots of things going on personally and professionally. I was having a conversation with a friend yesterday while we watching our Dallas Cowboys stinking it up against the Cardinals and we were talking about me being on semaglutide.

I told him it hasn’t worked all that well on my. I’ve only lost about 10 pounds in 6 months and the side effects really, in my opinion, aren’t worth it. GI issues and heartburn like I’ve never had before. I don’t think 10 pounds is a good enough pay off and I’m considering trying monjourno or dropping it all together until some new ones come ot the market.

He asked me if I have been exercising and working out and you know what? I hated to tell him that I haven’t. I’m not going to get up in the morning to do it and while I used to work out at lunch, now my lunches are full of voice over work. The more I talked about it with him, the more and more I settled into the idea that I just have zero work/life balance.

Don’t get me wrong; this is not a brand new revelation. I’ve known this for years and years. Sometimes though, you have a conversation that wakes you out of your lull and renews your interest in trying to get closer to that work-life balance thing that is a healthy balance.

I don’t know how to achieve that but, I have some ideas. I told you all in a recent podcast that we are considering ((and probably will) bring on a partner group and investment group. When that happens, the soul sucking part of practice gets better. In fact, it goes away. No more HR, billing, collecting, and misery. Only patient treatment. No more keeping track of stats on my own. No more business bank account balancing. None of that.

That would provide me with some work-life balance. Also, I work 5 days a week and have since the beginning 25 years ago. Now, on the way I would be paid, if I can see the same amount of people in 3 days, I can just work 3 days. That would DEFINITELY give me some work-life balance.

Plus, I think I’ll have an opportunity to hire an associate in December that will take a little heat off of me. That would absolutely give me a better balance.

Just thinking out loud here, folks. But my thinking out loud sometimes speaks to others. These are the things I’m dealing with at the moment and it’s a big, transformational moment in my life. If you’re the praying type, I would ask for your prayers that I make the right decision for me and my family. I would appreciate it.

Item #1


The first one today is called Patterns in Cancer Incidence Among People Younger Than 50 Years in the US, 2010 to 2019by Benjamin Koh; Darren Jun Hao Tan; Cheng Han Ng, MBBS; et al and published in Jama Network and on August 16, 2023. Dayum. That’s hot.

Why They Did It

To characterize the patterns in the incidence of early-onset cancers in the US from 2010 to 2019 and provide granular data on the cancers with the fastest-growing incidence rates.

How They Did It


This population-based cohort study analyzed data from 17 National Cancer Institute Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results registries from January 1, 2010, to December 31, 2019.

Age-standardized incidence rates per 100 000 people were extracted for early-onset cancers, with rates age adjusted to the US standard population.

A total of 562,145 patients with early-onset cancer between 2010 and 2019 were identified and included.

Data were analyzed from October 16, 2022, to May 23, 2023.

What They Found

  • Among 562,145 patients aged 40-49 years; 351,120 with early-onset cancer, 4,565 were American Indian or Alaska Native, 54,876 were Asian or Pacific Islander, 61,048 were Black, 118,099 were Hispanic, 314,610 were White, and 8947 were of unknown race and/or ethnicity.

  • From 2010 to 2019, the age-standardized incidence rate of early-onset cancers increased overall and in female but decreased in male individuals. In contrast, the age-standardized incidence rate of cancers in individuals aged 50 years and older decreased over the study period

  • In 2019, the highest number of incident cases of early-onset cancer were in the breast. From 2010 to 2019, gastrointestinal cancers had the fastest-growing incidence rates among all early-onset cancer groups. Among gastrointestinal cancers, those with the fastest-growing incidence rates were in the appendix, intrahepatic bile duct, and pancreas

Wrap It Up


In this cohort study, the incidence rates of early-onset cancer increased from 2010 to 2019. Although breast cancer had the highest number of incident cases, gastrointestinal cancers had the fastest-growing incidence rates among all early-onset cancers. These data may be useful for the development of surveillance strategies and funding priorities.

Item #2

Our last one this week is called, “Body mass index and all-cause mortality in a 21st century U.S. population: A National Health Interview Survey analysis” by Aayush Visaria and published in Plos One on July 5, 2023. Hot potato!

Why They Did It

Much of the data on BMI-mortality associations stem from 20th century U.S. cohorts. The purpose of this study was to determine the association between BMI and mortality in a contemporary, nationally representative, 21st century, U.S. adult population.

How They Did It

This was a retrospective cohort study of U.S. adults from the 1999–2018 National Health Interview Study (NHIS), linked to the National Death Index (NDI) through December 31st, 2019.

BMI was calculated using self-reported height & weight and categorized into 9 groups.

We estimated risk of all-cause mortality using multivariable Cox proportional hazards regression, adjusting for covariates, accounting for the survey design, and performing subgroup analyses to reduce analytic bias.




What They Found

  • The study sample included 554,332 adults
  • Over a median follow-up of 9 years (IQR 5–14) and maximum follow-up of 20 years, there were 75,807 deaths.
  • The risk of all-cause mortality was similar across a wide range of BMI categories
  • These results persisted after restriction to healthy never-smokers and exclusion of subjects who died within the first two years of follow-up.
  • A 21–108% increased mortality risk was seen for BMI ≥30. Older adults showed no significant increase in mortality between BMI of 22.5 and 34.9, while in younger adults this lack of increase was limited to the BMI range of 22.5 to 27.4.

Wrap It Up

The risk of all-cause mortality was elevated by 21–108% among participants with BMI ≥30. BMI may not necessarily increase mortality independently of other risk factors in adults, especially older adults, with overweight BMI.

Further studies incorporating weight history, body composition, and morbidity outcomes are needed to fully characterize BMI-mortality associations.

Let’s get to the message. Same as it is every week.

The Message

I want you to know with absolute certainty that when Chiropractic is at its best, you cant beat the risk vs reward ratio because spinal pain is primarily a movement-related pain and typically responds better to movement-related treatment rather than chemical treatments like pills and shots.

When compared to the traditional medical model, research and clinical experience show us patients can get good to excellent results for headaches, neck pain, back pain, and joint pain to name just a few.

It’s safe and cost-effective can decrease surgeries & disability and we do it through conservative, non-surgical means with minimal hassle to the patient.

And, if the patient treats preventatively after initial recovery, we can usually keep it that way while raising the overall level of health!




Key Point:

At the end of the day, patients should have the guarantee of having the best treatment that offers the least harm. When it comes to non-complicated musculoskeletal complaints….

Thats Chiropractic!

One comment on “Patterns Of Cancer In The Young & BMI And Mortality

  1. In addition, I had a wonderful time with that. In spite of the fact that both the narration and the images are of a very high level, you realise that you are anxiously expecting what will happen next. Regardless of whether you choose to defend this stroll or not, it will be essentially the same every time.
