give us a special preview and i see you have a good arm, alex, good morning. >> arm might be okay but i don't know about the legs. the since we have last spoken we have been working on this eight and a half foot jump and i have been failing miserablely. i will have to stick with the five and a half. but, we're here at franklin institute, brand new redesigned sports zone having way too much fun. for example this is momentum, it is all interactive, combining the science of the sports when you don't even know you are having so much fun. we have been here all morning checking it out. this has been in the works since 2013 this redesigned, i'm here at franklin institute, president and ceo larry and tell me, what has gone into two years, 3.1 million-dollar to get this up to speed. >> this is a great exhibit. what we're able to do is test sports that everyone can do. so we start really with the
basic stuff that you would have in your garage or backyard, able to put together different types of items, they come in and get fabricated in to making a top exhibit exhibition on science technology and sports. >> this is unique because it is not like you are going on line and saying we need a device that shows us. these exhibit are created in house. >> that is right. franklin institute has an award winning team that fills exhibitions and this team won for our brain exhibit an award nationally as best exhibition and i will tell you i think sports really, is right behind. that it may also land an national award as a great exhibition. >> this is great. i think as you may have seen in the last, segment, if you want to head down here, because we will go head to head. that is one of the things that the franklin institute learned that was a favorite last time was that people loved to compete. >> yes, people loved to compete. they loved sports that they can do as well, bicycling is one of those this shows you
difference between low gears which takes less force and which one you will use low gear to get up. and, i'm's in low gear here. i'm in the blue. and, okay. >> see, you are beating me. >> yes, i am, but that has to do with the high gear and i think that is the point of this one. >> you roll down the hill. >> that is the the other kind of sport you will learn about here as well. >> when talking about sports very important thing especially this day and age is to ramp safety. there is a a new helmet exhibit. the lets show and tell me about this. >> one of the things you will learn here is everything about science physiology, safety as well, the science, technology that has gone into equipment and there is nothing you have seen like helmets that continue to improve a that is because concussions are a real problem in sports. >> we will talk about those now. >> this shows you a an example
of what happens, helmet, non-helmet and g force that happens when you load it up. if i slap you on the back it would be 4g when i hit you without a helmet, 70g's. so what you have is a challenge what has happened in sports is this proliferation of great sports equipment and technology. >> all sports, this exhibit pans all a sports. we have all kinds of wrestling, these helmets show different sports. it is a great exhibit to show up on saturday. >> we open up on saturday. so excited. first 500 visitors are free, we have special activities all through the day, learn about sports, you can play sports and show how sports science and equipment all come together. >> you can win, and everything from running to softball to biking here, it is all fun, all activity and most important thing it will do what the franklin institute does best and immerse people and learn why they are here. >> good point learning what
you do not even know, that is the best. >> nicole, back to you from the franklin institute this morning. >> 6:51. there is a lot coming up on cbs this morning, charlie rose joins us from new york, good morning, charlie. >> good morning, nicole. ahead nancy cordis is with us from capitol hill as she has what to expect from the hillary clinton testimony in the benghazi investigation. plus one man business to have brain surgery on live television, bryant gumbel is here with preview of the unique event. and this john and tracie stewart, their first ever interview together they tell us about life after the daily show and tracie's new mission to change with animals. more of the news is back in the morning, we will see new about ten minutes. >> charlie, we will be watching, thank you. we have reported this week the american cancer society announced new mammograms guidelines bumping the
recommended age from 40 to 45 for women at average risk of developing breast cancer. news has caused confusion and also raising some questions for many women. family physician doctor jennifer cuddle is here to answer those questions and let you know we should be discussing with your own doctor. >> good morning. you are absolutely right, about these changes. >> what are these changes, break it down for us. >> sure. >> women of average, american cancer society is recommending streak start at age of 45 instead of 40. >> right. >> and go every year until the age of 54. but at the age of 55 women can screen every two years for as long as they remain healthy. another change they made was that a clinical breast exam they are not necessarily to be done any longer but i should mention with these guidelines they do have caveats for woman who wants to start screening a at 40 or who wants to continue the annual screening the whole time rather than going to the every two years. it is a lot of talk. biggest thing to keep in minds, 45 instead of 40 and
then at age of 55 we are going every two years. >> why the changes, why 45. >> that is a great question. researchers looked at a lot of data from over the years. one of the things they realized when women were screened earl are it raised their risk for false positive. a false positive is a woman were to get a a mammogram and it looked like it showed a problem with her breast but in a actuality there was no problem what that means is she had undergone testing, biopsy to come to the conclusion there wasn't a problem in the first place. that risk, of false positives is higher when we started screening earlier. there were other reasons as well but that is a main one. >> they say average risk, what does that mean. >> that is very, very important here. if you are a a woman with high risk for breast cancer these do not apply to you month. man at average risk defined by american cancer society is a woman who does not have a personal history of breast cancer. she never had breast cancer herself. she does not have a gene mutation to increase her risk
for having breast cancer and never received radiotherapy to the chest area when she was younger. my personal belief is a number of other potential risk factors that need to be taken into consideration but those are some things that the american cancer society, defines as average risk. >> i'm sure you are getting questions as a doctor yourself, i want to hear bit. and also was should women be discussing with their own doctor. >> that is the key right there, this word discussing. honestly the take home message for all women out there even physicians is that we simply have to have a conversation really discuss risk verse benefits and talking about a woman's risk factors. woman needs to know her body, her family history, personal history and talk with the doctor about hey what will be best for me. we have guidelines. there are lots of different guidelines out there making sure we he know what is best is really the key there. >> you mentioned discussion talking to your doctor, are there other ways that women can advocate for themselves.
>> honestly i say just start by going. we know there are a number of women who opt out and getting routine screenings. get to the doctor in the first place. really start having that conversation is the best advice i can give. for us doctors out there i think doctors are scratching their heads because i used to talk to a number of my collogues. or saying nope, i'm sticking with 40. or doing 45. some are saying 50. talk to your doctor. >> if you want to do it earlier will insurance cover. >> that is a good question. i think it would cover at the age of 40. it is certainly up to each insurance company. so check with your car year. >> doctor jen, we appreciate it. >> thank you we will be ri
