7:13 am
support a different candidate. >> he occasionally throws heat my way. >> reporter: that is why hillary clinton is throwing heat his way. >> he says he cherishs women. well, that's nice. but if it's all the same to you, mr. trump, i'd rather you stop cherishing us and respecting us instead. >> reporter: and fiorie that, the only woman in the gop race released a new video monday. suddenly rebukeing trump's comments about her face. >> i am proud of every year and every wrinkle. >> and yet our poll shows trump leads among republican women 24% to carson's 22%. the one area carson beats trump is among college graduates by 8 points and one other interesting finding, gayle, new jersey governor chris christie has dropped from 3% support in august to just 1% now. >> there is still a lot of time

in our morning rounds, a double dose of potentially life saving help from aspirin for the first time? it's to prevent cardio vascular disease and a form of cancer. they believe the benefits outthe way risks for some of the patients. a cardiologist right here in new york city joins us at the table. >> good morning. >> why is this recommendation such a big deal and who actually benefits? >> so we have known about the benefit of aspirin in terms of preventative medicine. it's a no brainer. the big question is really does it prevent heart attack and stroke in everyone who has never had one? there have been a lot of
8:13 am
guidelines from different organizations all over the place. some say they should take it. it was very confusing. so now comes this task force. basically, who has synthesized and reviewed the most up to date evidence. they are making recommendations about using aspirin for first heart attack and stroke and blinding it to include cancer. the recommendation says for people ages 50 to 59, they have the biggest benefit. if they also have a 10% increased risk or more of heart attack or stroke in the next ten years, they don't have a risk of bleeding. they have an over ten-year life expectancy, that's the biggest population it benefits. there is also a benefit for those who are 60 to 69, but the benefit is smaller. we don't have enough data to make recommendations about those under 50 or those over 70. >> so this is for colon cancer specifically? >> exactly. >> what dosage are they suggesting? >> the doses are all over the map from 81 to 321 milligrams.
8:14 am
the evidence shows there is no incremental benefit of going over 81 milligrams. in fact, you may increase pleading risks. but the colon cancer you mentioned is important to point out, a lot of people say could it reduce other cancers? there is some research to suggest it might. the evidence to date is for colon cancer. you have to take the aspirin more more than ten years to start seeing the benefit to decrease your risk of colon cancer and dieing from colon cancer? >> you recommend to your patients they be aggressive about this? >> i tend to be aggressive. but there are cardiologists who differ in their recommendations. some feel this might create more people and bleeding risk and others feel it's in line with the other recommendations in cordology research. >> one researcher is proving how

8:22 am
interactions. >> are the monkeys hurt? >> no, not at all. they live many, many years, they're very playful because they are doing some things that no primate ever thought they could do. >> reporter: the doctor says the implications are enormous. if the brain signals of primates can help other primates in a controlled environment, could a healthy human brain help heal a damaged human brain? the goal is potentially to help someone paralyzed walk again? >> yes, we start with spinal cord injury. we are hopeful that this could be used for other disorders, neurological disorders like strokes and in some cases parkinson's disease. >> reporter: work he has already put to the test. drft here he and a team healed the mind of a 29-year-old paraplegic to a robotic skeleton, by simply thinking about it. she delivered the world cup opening kick. >> she actually felt the impact. he had the clear sensation that he actually kicked the ball.
8:23 am
it is important that the patients feel the ground. feel they are doing that by themselves and have a sensation that is realistic. >> i think the potential that the doctor is bringing to the field is the understanding that we are not limited in ourd minds. our body is what's limiting us. there really are almost no limits to what a single human brain can do or what several brains could do together. >> we are just starting to realize how complex it is, how, know 100 billion neurons interact to create what we ka ul the human condition. this is the big challenge. >> 100 billion neurons, that's exactly what we have in our brains. three brains already are working together. he hopes to include many, many more. the hope is in the very near future this brain net research can help disabled human patients. that's a lot of neurons. >> it is, indeed.
