8:14 am
immuneologist and researcher. bit by bit her body's being trained to no longer react to foods she's allergic to. a process called desenseciation. >> tell me how you treat allergies. >> what we do is try to take away people's allergies and try to do it permanently. in order to do that, though you have to give someone back the same food they're allergic too. >> reporter: at the start of the treatment the doctor and her team gives most payments a series of injections to lower the body's immune response. several weeks later they start eating a few grains of the foods they're allergic too. over the course of about six months to a year that amount is steadily increased. >> i was nervous, but the think was i saw how tiny the nut flakes were and then like i literally said one, two, three, and i ate it. >> reporter: now she can eat 60 nuts in one day without having a

8:17 am
>> this doctor is changing people's lives. this is such a huge issue. i know so many parents that struggle. the question is, too, why are food allergies on the rise? >> that is the million dollar question, norah. we know that genes play a houle role but it probably has to do with a couple of things. it's probably a complex interaction between our genes and our environmental. air pollution, chemicals, things in the foods we eat. there's really a lot of energy. >> but the lack of exposure too. none of our kids eat peanut butter because it's not allowed in schools anymore. really interesting. thank you so much, dr. holly. there's going to be a huge response to this story, no doubt. are lawyers using the web to get away with smear campaigns? jodi kanter is in our toyota green room with details of a major sexual harassment suit. it involves one of silicon valley's best known firms. that's ahead on "cbs this

sensations. in a form of disclosure he's been a friend for many years. jodi kanter writes in today's "new york times." good morning. >> good morning. >> here's what you right. they're finding unexpected support. they fear such exposure is throwing court proceedings off track. >> it's a really strange thing. these lawsuits are going viral online. now, lawsuits have always technically been public in the issue of transparency but it used to be if you filed a lawsuit, unless you were a really famous person or your lawsuit was wildly unusual, it stayed inside a courthouse's filing cabinet, people's briefcases, it didn't get out. now becausering is filed online and very readily accessible these lawsuits is getting out. a juicy complaint in a lawsuit is quite a read. it reads almost like a magazine story. and some of them are getting more irreparable that actual
8:23 am
magazine stories. but part of the problem is the initial filing is only one side of the story. >> just how much issue is there in these gender-related suits online? >> a lot. i came across one that got 400,000 readers or more which is a sizeable audience. >> there have been questions about gender equality in silicon valley. >> and also throughout society. one of the reasons these things are resonating is people read them and first of all they're often outraged by the allegations and also they're interested in our lives than complex corporate litigation or something like that. one of the victims i talked to rachel cramer said when her lawsuit when online it wasn't intentional but she got a lot of messages from strangers, parly older women who said this happened to me, too, but i never spoke up so i'm glad you filed your lawsuit. >> what's the consequence for the defendant who's been accused
8:24 am
of something like sexual harassment sexual discrimination once this goes viral and so many people read it even though there hasn't been a trial yet. >> it's a really serious fairness question. you can have a lawsuit filed against you. it can go absolutely crazy online. it can leave a huge trail over google. it can basically ruin your expectation. and they can be pretty unsupplying poorted. you don't need to present a lot of concrete evidence to file a lawsuit. the discovery phase of the trial hasn't taken place yet. and so the concern is that these often men in these cases are left in a position of having left them unfairly maligned. >> it becomes this p.r. tool. the question is any talk of sealing some of this information so it doesn't then get out before everything else is out. >> the courts are really reluctant do that because the ideas that lawsuits should be transparent
8:25 am
transparent, it should be in an open forum. >> thank you so much. >> live picture from moorestown morning from 52some drive, there is heavy police presence, as you can see there police have provided few details but we know there are ambulances in place, and a medical helicopter has been called to the scene. more updates as we continue to learn more. right now let's get your forecast with kate. >> i ukee, the forecast generally speaking is just very cold air, nudging on in, and coming along with that even couple of light flurries have been flying, tell tyne sign colder air moving n i don't want you to worthy is sign of anything worse to come. it is really, again just indicating that the cold air

8:34 am
sipdy, good morning. >> good morning. >> you know, its was nice to see that this ask her more campaign has had an impact. for the first time on the carpet i didn't hear the first question, so what are you weighing. >> right. noonld actress is saying that they should. be asked that or it's offensive or superficial. that's what the red carpet is for. but for those to be the only topics to be discussed when you as an actress may have spent years on your part it is pretty demoralizing. >> at the same time it's hollywood. >> it's a great level ler also for women who at this point are still getting paid less. it bridges fashion and beauty contracts with levels the field. >> which patricia arquette addressed pretty emotionally. >> who was your favorite look this year? >> i thought the whole trend of embellished white dresses was absolutely beautiful. with saw it on lupita nyong'o.

their personal stories through the reflection. there are 130 photos so far of veterans and tichb duty servicemembers, and they are projecting who they are or what's hide behind the uniform with all of it revealed through the looking glass. what we get to see is unabashed joy and unrelenting pain. there is pride, there is diversity, there are americans free to be whatever. and while the photos are very different, the for matt is the same. on one side of the mirror the veteran is in uniform. on the other is an image the veterans choose themselves. we watch the photographer devin mitchell visit several veterans a home. >> there's nothing better i could do to make this photo more powerful. >> here's the concept. devin takes the photos and makes the mirror image but never suggests what they should be. >> the only way to get the truth of anyone is to allow them to create what their story is.

>> this is their choice 100%. >> your choice of uniform and your choice of who you are. the mere image of every day life, of your past who you see yourself in the future. each photo has its own dichotomy. >> the veterans know these photos will post to instagram. but most are not snapshots, they're messages to other veterans and to us. this veteran lost both legs in afghanistan, but today he has a modeling career. that stare into the mirror is a pep talk to everybodying and not just himself. >> i need to keep going. it will get better. >> this this is the marine in you staring the new you down. >> basically. telling myself notbe a punk. >> one of the clearest messages is the pain of ptsd. some have it written on their hands. they want us to see the drugs t

photo session itself is therapy. >> some veterans feel like their situation is unique. maybe they feel like they're alone, that no one else deals with what they're going through other than them. >> one of the most powerful images is also the smallest. this is 8-year-old rachel hope standing at attention. her parents jennifer and shah mar are still in the navy and have deployed several time bus even when they're gone rachel says, she is serving with them. >> do you feel like you're a part of this too? >> yes sometimes. when something dangerous happens or i watch the news that's dangerous happening, i feel like, well, i'm a part of this. >> in so many photos there is unmistakable celebration, family reunions that no one takes for granted anymore, the pride in having served next to the relief at being home. the portrait is one of transformation from duty to personal freedom which for many was the reason they wore the uniform all along.
