7:13 am
says this rancher because of a combination of factors beginning with the grass. >> when the drought hits us our grass does not grow to the extent that we are accustomed to. >> reporter: calves don't mature as fast and the prolonged winter slowed the growth of grain to fatten them up but there's another reason for the lack of domestic beef. >> we're also exporting more to other countries and so the demand for beef is stronger. >> reporter: the usda projects retail prices for beef will rise as high as 6.5% this year compared to just 2% last year. the northwest meat company in chicago is on the supply end of the equation providing meat to local hotels restaurants and country clubs. but finding meat from producers isn't as easy as it once was. andrew is a third generation packer. >> today i ordered 12 boxes of

7:36 am
time for "morning rounds." first up this week a leading doctors organization is telling healthy women not to have routine pelvic exams. the american college of physicians recommendation could shake up decades of common medical practice. what's going on here? >> first i want to clear up confusion. we are not talking about a pap smear.
7:37 am
we're talking about a pelvic exam where it's the doctor feeling organs to see if there's a problem and american college of physicians reviewed literature and said there's no good evidence that benefits outweigh the risks. they point out there's also not great evidence that risks outweigh the benefits. there's just not a lot of good studies out there. >> what are pelvic exams meant to find in the the first place? >> big thing they were trying to find is ovarian cancer. turns out that nothing is really good for finding that. not pelvic exams, not ultrasound or a blood test. that's been a disappointment. what gynecologists will tell you we're not just looking for cancer but other things. maybe skin cancer. there may be warts. there could be fibroids that leads to problems with urination. they are saying there's no reason to throw this out. it's really not such a big deal to do it and for a lot of women after a discussion with their doctor, they may want to go
7:38 am
ahead and do it. >> i feel like the rules keep changing. they changed how women are supposed to get paps and mammography and maybe conflicting advice saying they won't go to the doctor. >> biggest concern for the medical community. we spent so many years trying to raise awareness about how important preventive screening tests are for women and now we have them right there. they are visiting and getting their mammogram and saying it's not that useful. i think in my practice women are interested in screening but there has to be a balance. we shouldn't just screen to do it. we should only use tests that really will make a difference and save lives. that's where research comes in. >> people should realize there is a cost and there are unnecessary procedures that happen and right now we're looking at costs for the healthcare system and this is why we look at this evidence based medicine. should we do it or not? >> also this week the fda highlighted the dangers of caffeine.
7:39 am
80% of american adults have caffeine daily in small doses it can provide a quick pick me up but too much can be deadly. we see how the stimulant is being blamed for taking the life of a teenager. >> reporter: just days before his high school graduation 18-year-old logan steiner was found dead in his home. the coroner ruled the cause of death to be a lethal dosage of pure caffeine. >> we had never seen this before. >> reporter: steven evans said steiner, a high school wrestler was a healthy young man but the amount of caffeine in his system caused a seizure. >> that's a very dangerous situation. i think it needs to be regulated better. >> reporter: pure caffeine powder can be bought on the internet in bulk and it's labeled as a supplement and not regulated by the fda. in this online review video a man shows a package he bought for $10. and the white powdery substance is potent. >> be careful with this stuff.
7:40 am
>> reporter: this bag of pure caffeine shows the recommended dose is 250 million grams or 1/16th of a teaspoon equivalent of three red bulls. if someone took one full teaspoon, that would be 50 red bulls at once. >> i think that's really the scary thing. everybody thinks that caffeine is safe because it's everywhere. >> reporter: that misconception even for energy drinks can have serious effects. >> the message is for parents and kids and adults and everybody to really understand that when you're using things that are not regulated, you don't know how much you're getting. you don't know what else is in there. >> reporter: she says for kids especially, the advertising of energy drinks as seen here and caffeine supplements can be enticing. >> that's a time of your life where you want so desperately to feel good about yourself and to fit in and you think that i'm getting something that's safe. i'm taking caffeine. they just don't recognize that
7:41 am
in these unregulated, unsafe doses, it can be so deadly. >> now that there's caffeine in so many things from drinks to food to gum, what is the right amount we should be having or giving our kids? >> the american academy of pediatrics discourages the use of caffeine at all. now, there is some caffeine in chocolate. i don't think they are saying kids shouldn't have chocolate. the point is that it's a stimulant. it's a drug. in small amounts, it can cause you to be jittery or anxious. we don't know. there may be no safe amount for one particular kid. in large amounts, it can cause palpitations, high blood pressure seizure and death. this is a drug that the fda is saying we may consider regulating this. >> the fda has regulated alcoholic beverages with caffeine. why haven't they regulated powdered caffeine? >> they are considering it. the fda is very concerned about this. not just powdered caffeine but
7:42 am
the energy drinks that have amounts of caffeine that we don't even know. i interviewed the ceo of one of the companies. he wouldn't tell me how much caffeine was in their product. it's this hidden caffeine. it's a dietary supplement not regulated by the fda and they are seriously considering regulating it. >> they talk about how you can buy it off the internet. is there a way to impose an age restriction on who can buy it? >> it's hard to do it. it's the wild wild west on the internet and how they can check this box, i'm 18 and over. we know how well that is going to work. >> all right. your chances of getting a prescription for painkillers depend on where you live. a cdc report finds prescription rates vary widely by state. the highest are in the southeast led by alabama, hawaii has the lowest rate. 259 million prescriptions for narcotics like vicodin, percocet and oxycontin were written in 2012. that's enough for every american
7:43 am
adult to have a bot offaltle of pills. questions about a routine back pain treatment. millions of americans receive steroid injections every year. a study suggests the shots may not be worth the trouble. >> back pain is so common. 65 million americans have it every day of their lives. these epidural steroid injectionsinjection s where you inject into the open spaces of the spinal cord around the spinal cord where nerve roots come out to cut down on inflammation and hence, pain from back disorders. this study found that if you compare two groups of patients. one who had this steroid and anesthetic and one just having anesthetic, at the end of six weeks they are the same so it's calling into question whether the steroid is effective.
7:44 am
the biggest frustration in medicine -- i was disappointed to hear the shots may not work the way we thought they did because there aren't that many treatments out there for back pain. exercise is the mainstay. it improves flexibility and strength in the back. pills can be used as well. anti-inflammatories and narcotics only when we absolutely need to and then surgery is a last resort. but it's disappointing to hear this may not be as effective as we hoped. >> back pain is the worst there is. this week you may have heard of this acrobatic discipline turning your surroundings into an obstacle course. the sport requires strength and flexibility and is being adopted by an over 60 crowd in london. they modified fundamentals into exercises that work best for their bodies. >> we are always telling everyone to stay active right, don't be sedentary. if you have to swing from
7:45 am
furniture to get it done that's fine. however, you need to do it. >> the heart doesn't know what's making it beat fast. as long as they're not killing themselves by doing it. >> they're brave. >> a lot of them have replacement joints. >> thank you both. up next america on parade. we visit a unique museum run by a man who devoted his life to perfecting the great american patriotic parade. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday."

8:09 am
thomas jefferson. >> stirring certainly but how accurate was hollywood's version of the birth of our nation? let's ask an historian and author of "don't know much about history" series. >> hollywood got it wrong. it's a wonderful movie. has great moments in it. the 56 signers did not sign on the fourth of july. only two men signed on that date because they had an inky scratched out piece of thomas jefferson's draft. john hancock, not a big signature and charles thompson secretary of congress and then the next day it was over and people started to celebrate. >> when did the congressional congress actually sign it? when should we be celebrating? >> the fourth of july is clearly
8:10 am
the nation's birthday although john adams thought it would be july 2nd. congress votes a resolution of independence on the second. adams goes home that night saying that this day will go down in history. he'll celebrate with pomp and celebration. just off on the day. when people saw the declaration when it was published and saw july 4th, 1776 that became the nation's birthday. our birth certificate in a sense. >> today i note that first two copies were sent out july 5th to new jersey and delaware by john hancock. but this was interesting to me. there was a committee of five people who were supposed to write the declaration but jefferson did most of the work. >> jefferson did the work. he wrote the declaration on a handmade laptop desk. the first laptop in a sense that he had designed. he was given the job by the other four men including john adams, ben franklin roger
8:11 am
sherman of committee and robert livingston of new york. they agreed jefferson is the writer. let him do it. they made about 40 changes to the draft and then congress debated jefferson's document for another two days and made another 40 changes. the most important of which was cutting out a reference to sheriff slavery of all things and that's a point we should always come back to. >> what was taken out of the copy was what you were talking about. >> jefferson complains that the king of england is preventing america from stopping the slave trade, which is disingenuous to be polite about it. it's taken out jefferson later says it's taken out indifference to men who own slaves and northern brethren making money transporting them. is a reminder men that are talking about life and liberty and all of these important values very few of them had clean hands when it came to slavery. a man like william from new hampshire for instance.
8:12 am
he's described as a merchant. he was a sea captain going between africa and west indies transporting slaves. we can't be too cynical about it on the other hand but we have to be honest about it. >> they make a reference in the film clip we saw to these men committing treason. did any of them see repercussions because they signed the document? >> of the 56 signers, many of them lived long and prospered. quite a few had homes burn. not necessarily because they were signers but a because they were wealthy men with big prosperous homes including william floyd here in new york. his home was used as a barracks and later destroyed. very few signers actually suffered in the war itself. >> even though we're technically celebrating the wrong day, it's always fun. thank you so much.
8:13 am
up next -- >> seriously. are you not aware there's a person here. >> sorry. >> well hello. >> how are you doing? what brings you up to first class? >> the seat that i procured -- >> sorry. i was in low class and my seat belt didn't work. >> if you are tired of hassles of commercial air travel, try going private. seats on luxurious private jets are more affordable than you may think and we'll explain. you're watching "cbs this morning saturday."

taking a flying vacation this summer? how about sidestepping long security lines, tsa pat-downs and lost or delayed luggage. it's part of the deal if you fly a private jet or plane. new companies and websites make it possible to do so at affordable prices. katie hill consumer reporter at market watch joins us now. >> good morning. >> i don't want to believe you when you say i can fly private less than than commercial but it's true. >> it is true. companies offer last-minute flights. they figure about 40% of the seats on private planes are not filled. better get some money than no money. they'll offer these very very low last-minute flights. sometimes cheaper than coach. we're talking about $150 a person sometimes. >> there's got to be a catch with that. the catch is usually that you have to be prepared to travel the next day. >> next day.
8:18 am
on thursday you look at the site and you'll have to fly on friday. that's a big catch. a lot of people can't take advantage. if you have that flexibility, go for it. >> i also feel like the fine print here is that sometimes you have to get the whole plane. you buy it all and divvy up seats. >> for this site jetsuites.com, you have to get the whole plane. it's cheap. l.a. to cabo flight. $499 for the plane $124 per person. that's a pretty great deal. >> you mentioned jetsuites is one of the site. what is the other one? >> other sites surfair is interesting out of california for $1,600 a month you get unlimited private flights. if you fly a lot like five or more times a month, that really can be worth it. the other interesting one is flight air taxi out of the east coast. they have really decent deals too. sometimes about $500 to fly from
8:19 am
new york city to martha's vineyard. a lot of short flights through the northeast and sometimes down to florida. those are one-way fares. business class is often more than that. >> are you flying on small planes? >> you fly on tiny flames because that's how they save money. two engine jet is a lot of money to run. smaller companies have smaller planes cheaper to run. people worry about safety with those. it's still safer than driving although it's not quite as safe as a big two engine jet that you see a ceo running around on. >> sometimes you get perks on these private jets as well, don't you? >> the perks are ridiculous. that's why people want to do it right. leather seat is cushion. you can lay back. you have leg room for days. no security line. tsa is not going to take your shampoo, which i hate. none of that. people are sick of flying commercial because it's tight in there. you sit next to the bathroom.

8:24 am
all-star players. >> it's super challenging. amazing how much work i put in and how much training i put in. >> reporter: agility and speed made him a prospect for the nfl but instead of football he chose frisbee. now he playses for resolver the san francisco team that won last year's ultimate world championship. >> running and jumping and quick angle changes and team work. the essence of what makes a sport good. >> reporter: new jersey high school kids created ultimate back in 1969. today it's one of the country's fastest growing sports. combining elements from football and soccer in a fast paced high energy game. the object is to flick the frisbee down the field dodging defenders and scoring with a catch in the end zone. but this game has a twist. no referees or officials.
8:25 am
players play on the honor system and call their own fouls. >> i think you frankly get a lot of refugees from other sports that don't want soccer and basketball or baseball where there's no responsibility or ethic around self-policing and respect for your opponent. >> reporter: mike is president of usa ultimate where players are held to high standards of sportsmanship. they call it the spirit of the game. >> we help each other. offense, you pick them up from the sidelines. >> in other sports officials are viewed as all powerful and policing the sport. it becomes a culture of what can you become away with. in ultimate people care about what the other people thinks of them and what teammates think of them. >> you come out and battle hard all game and that's something that we really respect so great game. >> reporter: as the sport continues to grow so does the possibility of changing the rules to add referees.
8:26 am
some players support that idea. still, for him, only one rule matters. >> treat others the way you want to be treated. winning the right way is the best way to do it. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning saturday," i'm brandon scott. >> i can see frisbee in the olympics. if curling can make it why can't frisbee? >> you're right. i fear if i was asked to self-police, i would cheat. coming up what hollywood has in store for the second half of 2014. >> apes do not want war! do not come back. >> "dawn of the planet of the apes" coming to theaters this week. we have a preview. this is "cbs this morning saturday."

8:31 am
"transformers age of extinction." biggest movie in the world right now cleaning house at the box office. but other than that, i think some of the big movies landed with their audiences and i thought there was some decent stuff. pretty good. i'm looking forward to the second half. >> let's look at what's coming up. let's start with "dawn of the planet apes." >> it takes place ten years after the first one. a lot of humans are wiped out on the planet and remaining humans have to contend with this growing ape population. we know who may win this war. it just looks great. my friend says it's the best sequel since "the dark knight." >> none of the original actors are in this one. >> what he does with this motion
8:32 am
capture technology is just amazing. i think after this film people will say he deserves some kind of award. maybe oscars should think about a category for these type of performances. >> let's move to the next one. "boyhood "boyhood" is coming out on friday. >> it's a tiny film but the first oscar contender. it's a coming of age story about this family and trials and tribulations they go through over the course of 12 years. it was actually shot over the course of 12 years. so not only do you see the natural age progression of its stars but you have a nice time capsule where things like when the ipod came out, there's a scene about that. when you see a scene like that you know this was shot the year the ipod came out. all of the music. it sort of takes you back over your own life the last 12 years while you're joining their lives as well. >> the film may be small but the idea is epic shooting over 12
8:33 am
years. and "guardians of the galaxy" is getting film buzz. >> the way i like to describe this film is if avengers are beatles, this is the rolling stones. you have misfits who have to come together to defeat this evil. i was on the set of this film last year in london. what i saw blew me away. reminded me of the next star"star wars" wars". kids are going to love it. >> in september we have "this is where i leave you." >> this is about four siblings whose father dies where they have to reunite and live under one roof for a week and complexities that come out of that based on a fantastic book i cannot recommend more if you look for a summer beach read. great cast. jane fonda who plays the mom and
8:34 am
mom in the book is out there. look for her performance. >> in october we get "gone girl" which is adaptation of the novel. ben affleck is in this. >> this is one of the last chances to see ben affleck before he becomes "batman." he did "the social network" and they may have changed a little bit about the book. if you read the book and think you know everything that happens, go see the movie. i think you're going to like it. >> and seth rogan has "the interview." >> seth rogan they are invited to interview north korean lead leader. a lot of action and comedy. looks great. north korea is not too pleased with the movie so far. >> can't imagine why. >> i love it. i think seth rogan is at the top
8:35 am

8:40 am
get a star that quickly. >> a long life goal of mine so to achieve that was amazing. i cried a little bit. >> i read that you didn't even know you were being judged because critics ignored the restaurant. >> we flew under the radar and that's the best place to be really, isn't it? >> worked out all right. >> it's a colorful spread. >> just an homage to summer. we have some salmon gently roasted sauteed kale because everybody loves kale. roasted garlic. barbecued carrots is something i enjoy. and of course traditional dish of new zealand that you have at the table every birthday public holiday, you name it. >> one critic called your restaurant a love letter to new zealand. >> i'm pretty happy about that. >> you operate your restaurant -- your partner is
8:41 am
your general manager who is your wife. >> that's correct. >> how does that work out? >> it works great. it's pretty fun. >> i'm sure she told you to say that. >> she did. >> tell us about your background. you started -- you wanted to start cooking when you were just 11. >> i figured at a young age that this was something that i enjoyed doing mainly from baking with my mother and grandmother so i approached a local restaurant when i was 11 to do an apprenticeship and said sure, but you're way too young. i started washing dishes there when i was 14. went on from there. >> did i read you opened a cafe with your mother? >> i had a goal to have a restaurant by the time i was 21 which was blind ambition in retrospect. we did that. and then i started learning after that. >> talk about kick-starter. you are the first chef we had that actually used crowd sourcing to get yourself up and going. >> it's a pretty awesome resource available to anyone. obviously opening a restaurant in new york city is a pretty
8:42 am
tough order for anyone. any help you can get is good help. >> and how quickly did it work for you? >> we set it up for a certain period of time. i believe four weeks. it went really well. we sort of exceeded what we were trying to do. it's just great. you get support early and people are able to be part of something that i think turned out to be pretty special. >> when anthony was mentioning that you said that critics say this is a love letter to new zealand, how did you grow up and influence the type of chef that you are. >> growing up food was a big part of everything from picking berries with my mother shelling beans on the back porch fishing all the time neighbors giving you fish that they got on the weekend, and it's just a big part of life you know what i mean? so becoming a chef and being able to add that stuff later when you have technique behind it is fun because you have things behind that aren't just i cooked a salmon.
8:43 am
i actually have been to the place where that salmon comes from and love it. >> you have dreams of opening a restaurant in new zealand as well. >> if you're from somewhere, i love where i'm from and it's awesome to represent it in the greatest city in the world so to do it from where i am from also would be great. >> the current restaurant has a backyard garden. >> it's good. quite a few of the herbs and flowers on the dishes today i cut this morning on my way here. >> very cool. >> this is a new zealand beer we're drinking as well? >> that's produced in new zealand with new zealand pops. it's cool stuff. very sort of beer movement in new zealand right now. >> that's a good beer. let me hand this dish over to you and ask you as you sign it if you could have this meal with any person past or present, who would that person be? >> i would say coach john wooden.
