president obama used part of his friday news conference to keep up the pressure for action on gub control. >> we can't sort through and identify ahead of time who might take actions like this. the only thing we can do is make sure that they can't have an entire arsenal when something snaps in them. and if we're going to do something about that, the politics has to change. >> but will the politics change? phillip bump covers politics for the washington post. good morning. >> good morning. >> when you listen to that speech in entirety it is such a sense of frustration. and it is confusing because you look at the numbers and you see 88% of us agree there should be more background checks and that includes republicans. what's going on? >> the first problem is there is a huge power imbalance between folks who want maintain control lows.
there is a tlot of strength in the community to say we need to keep gun laws as they are or less. and one of the things about the background check issue is yes we all agree there should be universal background checks. 88, 90% of us. but there is a huge partisan tricky. >> since sandy hook there have been 986 mass shootings killing more than a thousand, wounding more than 3500. at what point, is there a point these numbers will start having impact in with sht. >> hard to imagine how they could get much bigger. there is a lot of detail that's buried in there. but it's hard to imagine. president obama's speech the other day which he essentially said we all know what happens here. we've been through this so many times before. i don't know if there is a number that you can hit where
>> to you does it color the conversation at all? >> it's tough. the nra and planned parenthood are the two most popular organizations in the country. one on the left and one on the right. the nra is very strong. but there is also, there exists a constitutional amendment which says you have the right to bear arms. that's tough to overcome. the problem with president obama is he's viewed -- the split is huge between how democrats and republicans view him. so i don't know if he said to republicans let's pass a law that the republicans would agree. >> you mentioned groups like the nra. there have been a number of high profile gun control advocacy groups. michael blum oomberg. gabby giver fford.
>> part of the problem, pew research did a study and found folks who actually advocate for keeping gun laws the way they are are the ones that go out and vote and other folks just aren't motivated in the same way. >> i think we all thought newtown, this is the time it will change. what will it take? >> for folks to want to pass new gun restrictions, i think what has to change is the court's interpretation of the second amendment. d.c. passed a gun law that restricted how many people could have handguns. and the court threw it out for being in violation of the second amendment. and as long as they have that can do. >> phillip bump, thanks so much for being with us. >> my pleasure. breaking news over night. u.s. war planes may have killed nine local staffers at the medical clinic run by doctors without borders in a bombing raid in afghanistan this morning.

have destroyed a command center and a training camp. but russia's air strikes have also targeted so called "moderate" rebels. some of them backed by the u.s. syria's civil war has already cost more than a kbaur quarter of a million lives. many of them taken by the syrian regime of bombing civilian areas. but now it is also giving syrian government forces an even more critical advantage. russian. >> russian aviation is helping us a lot said this man, a tank commander in the syrian army. but for those who oppose the regime russian air strikes will only strengthen government forces and worsen their agony.
emergency workers rescued children from a bombing. and then another blast. and another blow to any hope of peace in syria. it is not just the u.s. but also its coalition partners in europe and the mideast that accuse russia of causing civilian casualties. and they are calling on moscow to target isis and stop attacking the syrian opposition. >> holly williams good morning, a chilly day and keeping the same conditions around all afternoon in the hour by hour forecast with drizzle, clouds and strong breeze with temperatures topping off at 53 degrees. the wind gusting at times up to 35 miles per hour. another chilly day for sunday, too. coming up.

correspondent and cbs news contributor. first up chemotherapy is standard for most breast cancer patients. but a new study out this week finds some of them don't need it. >> in 2010 ann louise wiz diagnosed with early stage breast cancer. the kind fueled by estrogen. results showed she was a low risk so doctors treated her with hormone blocking therapy alone, sparing her the side effects from what's usually also given, chemotherapy. >> why do that if it wasn't going to give me a different outcome that i would get for not having the chemotherapy, so it made sense to opt out of it. >> the study in the new england journal of medicine followed 1600 women with hormone-driven breast cancer and a low risk zero. they received hormone blocking therapy but no chemo. after five years less than 1% had their cancer recur in a distant part of the body.
breast cancer specialists say this provides the clearest proof of the accuracy of a test that's been used more than a decade. >> it allows the doctor to sit up a little straighter in the chair and look the patient in the eye and say you know what? it really looks like you -- genetically in terms of the proteins that are expressed on the surface. completely different. every single one of them. you and you may want to be able to tailor the treatment specifically and differently depending on the genetic profile. and after that, over time the tumors can mutate again. so maybe that what's defective on day one isn't five, six months later. then you look at the profile again and change your game plan.
so the tumor is mutating, the game plan changes and this is the idea of the chronic cancer. that it is not just one treatment. you can evolve over time. and people can go much longer. next up, some 22 million american suffer from asthma. >> i always assumed the increase was because of the environmental variables. is that it? >> sure. even our bodies in some ways are part of the environment. now, this is a very interesting part of what's an ongoing canadian study. where researchers are looking at children from birth to the age of 5 and looking at possible risk factors for asthma and allergies which are thought to be along the so i'm kind of medical continuum. what they found was that for children, a group of children who are considered very high risk of developing asthma based on their early symptoms, when they were three months old, they
specific bacteria in their intestines. researchers took it a step further and followed up in mice and found that by giving mice these four bacteria, they were able to lessen the severity of some of these symptoms. in no way was this a cause and effect study. we can't say having too little of this bacteria causes asthma. but it is a really compelling connection to follow up on. >> interesting. so how might bacteria in the gut effect this risk of asthma. >> to follow up on bonita, yes. in terms of the bacteria and asthma one way is we have these trillion os bacteria in our gut. when we eat food, they eat the food and make chemicals and -- these are hypotheses. but some of the chemicals they make may be absorbed into the bloodstream and they are anti inflammatory. so they go to the lung and decrease inflammation in the lung and then there is interaction between the
there are thousands probably of different types of bacteria and the way they interact can effect the immune system. >> but is there a way to identify what is the biggest reason for the increase? is it the bacteria? or the environment? >> we are changing our microbiome. and it may be that for example by giving antibiotics, we know for sure we change the gut bacteria that way. other things are less obvious. for example the rise in c-sections. when the baby is delivered through the birth canal the baby picks up the bacteria there from the woman. if they go through the skin it is a different set of bacteria. so there are a lot of factors playing. >> we've been talking a lot about gut bacteria late. why is it so important. >> this is a huge area of focus. when we think about it there are
in our body in a symbiotic relationship. in fact there are ten times as many bacterial cells as human cells in our body. and the bacteria don't just sit there. they are active participants in everything that happens in our body. they effect our digestion. producing and absorbing certain vitamin. b and k for example. they play a role in possibly causing or preventing certain cancers, hard disease. and our mental health, that is an area of extreme focus. we know that bacteria can help to produce neurotransmitters that effect our mood and ultimately even our health. >> even obesity. >> absolutely. so keeping these in good balance really should be at the front of our fore thinking and research. >> i added more yogurt to my diet. you always hear that is the good bacteria. >> but we don't know which is the good bacteria. lot of research there. finally parents struggle to
get their kids do each vegetables. researchers at texas a&m university stumbled on a fact that might help. they analyzed leftovers. and found vegetables paired with more popular items like burgers or chicken nuggets were more likely to be thrown out. so pairing with proper foods could keep the vegetables out of the trash. >> and the science behind that. we can't just blame the kids for choosing cheese burgers and piz pizza pizza. the best way to get adults to eat vegetables is just give them no options. just put the vegetables on the plate and there you go. >> when we were kids my sister refused to eat her lima beans. he said the next thing you are going to eat is those lima beans.
that was the next thing she ate. >> thank you so much for being with us this morning. up next. death makes many college grads say the cost of higher education just can't worth it. we'll tell you about a company that may have a solution for them. you are watching cbs "cbs this morning saturday". trophies: best cracked pepper sauce... most ribs eaten while calf roping... yep, greatness deserves recognition. you got any trophies, cowboy? whoomp there it is uh, yeah... well, uh, well there's this one. best insurance mobile app? yeah, two years in a row. well i'll be... does that thing just follow you around? like a little puppy! the award-winning geico app. download it today. feel secure in your dentures... feel free to be yourself all day. just switch from

pay down their student loans. good morning. >> good morning. >> what exactly is pwc doing for its employees here. >> they are saying they are going to put skin in the game and help pay off student loan debt. >> this seems like such an obvious solution. for so long we've seen yoga gyms and the snack room. >> they are looking at the long game. saying we want to recruit millennial. this is the biggest issue we're facing as a generation right now. and what is the biggest issue that is going attract them to us? student loans. >> a significant pay down there. >> they are saying it could help them up to $10,000 over the six year process. but you have to take in account taxes. this money does get taxed. you are doing a monthly payment from a start up called gratify. and students go in and get a
little money they can put towards their student loan dead. but it is going tab taxed. >> people had hit the five years ago but nobody was talking about it. do you think pwc is maybe the catalyst is this. >> i hope so. but right now only 3% of companies are offering a the benefit like this. we can't call it a trend quiet yet. what's much more popular is tuition reimbursement. i think this could effect 22,000 employees and this is a huge sample size. and i think companies will be looking at pwc and saying does this work and if they seed in attracting them and retaining we might see larger companies follow suit. >> that is the key here. really valuable tool. if you don't work at the company like this, what are your other options? >> there are a lot of actions. a lot of states and organizations to retain medical
professionals will actually have student loan repayment assistance programs. if you are a teacher a lot of states want to retain teachers and get them to work in areas with shortages so rook at the state government website there might be that teacher shortage program. >> how did we end up here? it feels like a ball and chain. especially for a young person enter into into the workforce to have that 30,000 dollars that you were endebted t to. feel likes something. >> and 1200 dollars a year is something. but college costs today have so much higher than when our parents were in college. and that is the larger issue here. it is going to take a lot more companies stepping up and contributing. >> 3% is not. >> not enough. >> i remember handing over the college check and check and it
there are thousands of ways into the complex health care system. and unitedhealthcare has ways to make the system simpler. like virtual doctor visits. what happened here? i came in too hot. . >> so what we have here is a suicidal man, o.j. simpson -- >> on this day in 1985 the jury reached a verdict in the o.j. simpson murder trial.
guilty of the crime of murder. >> the legendary nfl running back was set free. acquitted of the brutal murder of his ex-wife nick ole brown >> i can't believe they ound him not guilty. i just don't think they came to the right conclusion. too. >> 13 years to the day after that infamous acquittal he was read a different verdict. >> count one, conspiracy to commit a crime. guilty. >> he was convected on charges of armed robbery and kidnapping. simpson was sentenced for up to 33 years in prison where he remains to this day. of this. but we want to remind you of
