5:13 pm
in labor need the same kind of energy and calories as marathon runners. when they don't get it, their bodies turn to fat for energy. that can reduce contractions leading to longer labor and lower health scores in newborns. >> in low-risk women, some drinking and mild fluids, light meal is okay. >> reporter: the revised advice should mean most moms come out of the delivery room feeling only pangs of love, not hunger. >> a meal, not a three course meal but yeah, it's a physical effort, right. >> reporter: not every obstetrician will be quick to change protocols but experts say it should allow for a conversation before the baby's due date about each woman's particular situation, health and risk factors for eating and drinking at the hospital. >> glor: contessa, thanks very much.

5:15 pm
cbs business analyst jill schlesinger is here. before we talk about why, less' talk about how much. >> kaiser says insurance companies are charging our employers 4% more. that's not the big number, the employers are now going to turn around and pass that on to us. so here's the damage. the average premiums that we pay, over $1,000 for singles, almost $5,000 for families, employees premiums have increased by 24% in the past five years. a staggering 83% over the last decade, and that's not all. because we also have the deductibles, right, the amount of minute out of pocket before our insurance kicks in, that is about 1100 for single coverage, it's up 67% in five years. >> glor: why is all this happening it's a combination of factors. we know that the prices for drugs and medical devices and in-hospital stays has really been soaring. we add to that the demographics, we know that we've got more
5:16 pm
living longer, and in fact, obesity, we're getting fatter, that's adding to the problem. >> glor: a lot of people ask how does the affordable care ago or obamacare play into all this. >> unfortunately, thal owe obamacare actually enrolled millions of people, it didn't do a lot to contain costs. i know that is a bit of a head scratcher for people, but it really didn't. prices are all over the place. we saw a nationwide study for mammograms. anywhere from $43 to dm 1900 for the same test. we also know that the price of hepatitis c drug for 12 week course is over $80,000. if you've got a rare disease, that can be up to half a million dollars. more people are enrolled in the health-care plans. we just haven't done enough to contain those costs yet. >> glor: jill, thanks very much. >> thank you. >> glor: the-- feuding with a lego company, an instagram west he says the company wouldn't sell to him because it quote cannot approve the use of legos

and these combine to create about 8 emotional state, happy, sad, fear, anger, disgust, contempt, confusion, surprise. >> so far the primary money maker for the app is audience testing for commercials, programs and movie trailers. 1400 brands use it to find out frame by frame what's funny or sad or spell binding or boring. >> our final story begins with a chance encounter. >> in our own test, two staffers watched a cbs news story by steve hartman. this line shows the reaction to a little boy who finds $20 and gives it to a soldier. >> soldiers remind me of my dad. >> we learn that dad was killed in action in iraq. but later. >> the kid gave you a bigger gift than $20. >> a lifetime direction. >> the line climbs back up. >> you can seat emotional journey. >> el kaliouby is working to expand the app for use in the
