7:15 am
runs up to $4,000. >> and you can get it from saliva and you're mailing it to who? where is it going? >> it's offered by an internet company so they send you a kit and you mail it back to them and get your results in six to 12 weeks. but the reason it's a game changer really is that making genetic testing affordable and accessible has been a huge barrier but we know that genes, using screens to screen for illness, treat illness and prevent illness in some cases, that's the future of medicine. so we'll see more of this. >> who should get the test? >> the medical guidelineers in who should get genetic testing hasn't changed. so if you have a first degree relative with breast cancer or ovarian cancer you would be a candidate or if you've already had a breast or ovarian cancer. but then there are a whole group of women that haven't been ableable to get the test. for instance if you were adopted and you don't know your family history. some women just want to know. as long as you have a doctor to help guide you through what to

of a blood clot or stroke. while taking xarelto® you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding and in rare cases may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve, or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. you may be able to get up to 12 months at no cost.

the prosecutor's office has a problem. there was a prosecutor in charge of senseual assaults. he left before the doj came in. she successfully kept a quarterback out of jail got him acquitted. then she ran for county prosecutor. this is a woman who's shown a great reluctance to prosecute anything other than a slam dunk. she's now in charge of the whole prosecutor's office that and that was one of the more fascinating thing in the book. this problem is so much more common than we know and you talk about rape myth. put that out there. >> one in five will be raped, that's from the centers for disease control. some say it's less. it's hard to know. at least 80% go unreported but

it's hugely widespread. why are they reluctant? >> because of the way they are treated in criminal trials. >> they're all creepy dafrmg dangerous acquaintances. >> yeah. most think they're jumping out of bushes. she knew this person since kindergarten. if a woman's being raped she'll if she didn't, that proves she must have wanted it. that's devastating. the trauma changes the brain chemistry. there's good science. >> in one of the cases the woman after she was raped she drove the rapist home which police then used against her.
8:47 am
>> that's right. the defense attorneys for the quarterback used that against her but in fact the psychologist who was an expert says he's seen that a lot. >> the question is why do they do it? is it about power? control? or is it about sex? >> it's about all about sex. they mostly do it because it's so easy to do. in 90% of it the rapist gets way with it scot-free. no accountability, no jail time no charges. that's why they do it because it's so easy. and they -- what's interesting is a lot of these rapists subscribe to the same rape myth it's the rapist in the bush. they don't think of themselves as a rapist. i'm a nice guy. i can't be a rapist. >> i was drunk. >> yeah. what's scary is many of these rapists if they had convicted. if you saw them walking down the street that is correct i could be working in the next cubicle.

>> what did you think about the rolling stone case and the duke lacrosse case where in both cases it appeared not to be what it was. >> in both of those cases the victim lied. it was a tafrable thing and discouraging. >> how common is that? >> 2% and 10% of men charged with rape are famouslylsely accused. the rape victim is usually the one under suspicion. in most cases the victim is the one they believe. >> i'll bet they're not interested in seeing you in missoula. but you're going there. >> i'm going there. i feel like the people of missoula have question. >> i've seen jon answer these questions in forums and i think you will. the book is
