    32. How Legal Drugs are Making History Faster Than Ever Before & Why Legal Drugs Agency Cares by Angela Stoyanovitch

    32. How Legal Drugs are Making History Faster Than Ever Before & Why Legal Drugs Agency Cares by Angela Stoyanovitch

    Over the month of October 2020, Legal Drugs Podcast (LDP), a production of Legal Drugs Agency, LLC (LDA), was on a strategic sabbatical to give back and reorganize. 
    In this episode, Host, Angela Stoyanovitch, recaps the lasted COVID cure announcements with new drugs announced from both Pfizer and Moderna (biotech and pharma companies.) Unusually, their announcements included 90-95% efficacy of the vaccines which were developed at record speeds.  While drugs of any kind have had longer development periods in the past, Legal Drugs Podcast has continually highlighted that the increased speeds can be attributed to many variables - the most obvious is the use of technology, machine learning and A.I. for early drug discovery.  To the general public who is outside of the drug development industry, this all may seem mysterious and confusing but we explain that this is a manifestation of the use of creative scientific theory and understanding of DNA, etc. No longer will we rely on simple chemical compounding for drugs.  The future of legal drugs is curative drugs and we are in a space race within the biotech industry to find them! This is an exciting time in history to be a witness to such speedy developments and with a global threat such as the COVID-19 pandemic, the pressure (and funding) are on high! Together, we will continue to discuss these advancements in bite side portions as we have in the first 31 episodes of the show, Legal Drugs Podcast. 
    As Angela outlines in this episode, 32, we are looking to the future for more gene editing that will result in more gene and cell therapies. This Spring 2021, Legal Drugs Agency will produce a new livestream salon-styled intimate conference on gene therapies via LDA partner, PharmaSalon. If you know someone you'd like to recommend as a speaker, please reach out to our host, angela@legaldrugsagency.com.
    If you are in the market for a career change within the life sciences industry, specifically, the drug development and contract research organization niche, Angela would love to introduce you to our LDA partner, RPM ReSearch Solutions, for career coaching, resources and matching to open candidate roles. 
    This Fall 2020, we are launching our YouTube channel as a result of our efforts over the last month.  Stay tuned for more information and subscribe now @legaldrugspodcast on YouTube and Instagram to stay up to date on our announcements.  
    Thank you to those who have supported LDP as a patron on www.patreon.com/legaldrugspodcast.  Your support means the world to us and we wouldn't be here without your generous contributions that help us create more content.  Thank you! 
    Other sabbatical work includes two recordings with Angela on Lab Rat Chat, an interview with their podcast hosts where Angela dives deep into her career and life story - listen here for free; Chat with Legal Drugs Podcast on Lab Rat Chat Podcast - and a podcast panel discussion recording as a platform session for the National Annual Meeting for the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS) - read more on page 26 of the virtual program; NAALAS Panel Discussion: Podcasting to the Public.
    Finally, LDA was established with the idea that we highlight the heartbeat of biomedical research and the drug development continuum. What do we do this work? Why do we study new drugs and how do we give back? No matter how you slice it, legal drugs has an impact on all of us.  For those of us deep in our drug development work or corporate lives, it is easy to lose touch with that heartbeat or the stories of people's lives we impact one way or another.  This is the legal drugs business we discuss here but what about the illegal drug business on the streets affecting people in great need due to addictions and mental illness. We all can have a positive impact (great or small) on each other's mental and emot

    30. Mental Health as the Taboo Carotid Artery to Heart Disease with Rockwell J. Stoyanovitch

    30. Mental Health as the Taboo Carotid Artery to Heart Disease with Rockwell J. Stoyanovitch

    Health professionals have started to recognize the importance of mental health as it relates to heart disease.  The American Heart Association (AHA) actually includes links to mediation and tips for a gratitude practice on their website.  See link here;  https://www.heart.org/en/healthy-living/healthy-lifestyle/mental-health-and-wellbeing
    For too long health professionals have ignored matters of mental health for our overall physical well-being as it includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. According to the information on the link above from the AHA, these things affects how we think, feel, and act along with how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices.
    Legal Drugs Podcast host, Angela Stoyanovitch, sits down with her father Rockwell ("Rocky") J. Stoyanovitch, retired plumber and trade-skilled pipefitter, to discuss his third heart attack.  Rocky credits his late couple of heart attacks to the stress he endured in his life after going through a divorce.  Rocky underlines that on top of day-to-day relationship navigation, many in the world right now may be stressed due to changes we've seen with the economy, civil unrest and the corona virus pandemic. As a result, our mental health is a vital part of our overall well-being and in Rocky's case played a very significant role to his heart-health. 
    We are grateful to Rocky for sharing his story, once again, on the Legal Drugs Podcast.  Please check out Episode 3 to hear the first and fuller version of his health story and overcoming heart disease.  Episode 3 continues to be one of our leading episodes in terms of downloads and other statistics.  Please share our episode with a friend and subscribe wherever you get your podcast.

    In this episode of Legal Drugs Podcast (NEW landing page www.podpage.com/site/legal-drugs-podcast), Angela Stoyanovitch, explores an alternative narrative to the field of laboratory animal research and helps to uncover mysteries animal research which is often quieted or ignored in the biotechnology sciences.  Ironically, it is much in part to the discoveries animals in research afford us that allow innovations to be explored and progressed forward in the biotechnology and biomedical research field. In an attempt to open up the conversation on this important step to drug development, Angela speaks with her guest Jeff Marshall (RBP, CBSP, SM (NRCM), a veterinary student with a unique background in biotechnology who has made it part of his mission to allow the public to form their own opinions based on the facts of lab animal science.  
    Jeff Marshall is a third-year veterinary student at Virginia Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine. Following his completion of a dual MS/BS degree in 2009 from the University of Nevada, Reno, Jeff has been involved in the field of comparative medicine in a variety of capacities. These experiences have included high-containment laboratory work as a research associate. Jeff has earned his certification as a Biological Safety Professional through the American Biological Safety Association (ABSA). He has also been a research compliance coordinator responsible for oversight for both Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees and Institutional Biosafety Committees. Once he completes his veterinary school, Jeff intends to become a laboratory animal veterinarian where he will continue to be an outspoken advocate for biomedical research and the animals that take part in it. 
    Jeff is the co-host and founder of Lab Rat Chat, a podcast dedicated to providing facts and an alternative narrative to the public regarding the necessity of humane and ethical animal research. Lab Rat Chat was made possible through the Michael D. Hayre Fellowship in Public Outreach, which is sponsored by the biomedical research advocacy group, Americans for Medical Progress (AMP.)

Episode 3 & 30

I just listened to these two podcasts and they were definitely helpful and informative.
Rocky stayed at my AirBnB, and after a great conversation about how our family has been transitioning to plant-baes eating he directed me to these two podcasts!
It definitely affirmed we are going in the right direction and will only continue to improve our health and well being the more we adhere to our eating plan!
I appreciate the open-mindedness of accepting ALL aspects of health. (Medicine when needed, eating right, and mental health). It is refreshing to hear acceptance of all methods.
Thank you Angela and Rocky!

Truly unique perspective

Angela breaks the mold of scientists who tend to be introverted and avoid engaging non-scientists in conversation. (I can say that because I am a scientist.) After spending years in the research field, she is following what I think is her true calling by sharing her passion and limitless curiosity about virtually every aspect of the bio pharmaceutical industry. Her ability to communicate this complex industry by breaking it down into bite-sized topics AND keep it interesting for her diverse audience is truly a unique skill set. Thank you Angela for your courage and boundless energy and enthusiasm that drove you to create this podcast so that all of us can have a real understanding of this industry that impacts most of us at some point in our lives.
