7:01 am
gone down somewhere in the french alps. bill neely is in london. anything more you can add? >> yes, the fact that it has gone down in the french alps is not good. it's about 9,000 feet up with few roads leading to it. 142 passengers on board, two pilots and four crew. i suppose from a rescuer's point of view that's very, very difficult terrain. at the moment it was not far into the flight from barcelona to d uss eldorf when it crashed. it is an airliner that is a subsidiary of the german airliner lufstanza. german wings is a low cost
7:02 am
airliner. they were heading back probably from vacation in barcelona. details are sketchy at the moment. the weather seemed to be fine. it was cloudy with just light wind. the pilot did send an sus urks srksstus urks srkss srkssus-s sos message, but rescue teams are on the way. it is an inaccessible area. from a rescue point of view that's not good. >> bill thank you very much. >> tom costello covers aviation. you are just getting the details as we are. talk about this plane. we put the map up and it started in barcelona on the way to d uss eldorf. this looks like about the midway point or less. >> that's concerning. the vast majority of incidents involving fatal or nonfatal
7:03 am
crashes for take off and landing, it's rare to have something happen in-flight. you will have the authorities looking at all probabilities here. the airbus 820 is a work horse of a plane. it is flown around the world and built in europe but flown heavily here in the u.s. by u.s. airways and american airlines and united and others. this is a very reliable plane and what we call a fly by wire plane. it is heavily automated with a lot of computer assistance and a lot of back up systems helping the pilot to fly the plane. it is not the old 737 pulley system. this is a sophisticated aircraft. what happened is anybody's guess. >> the last crash of an a-320 that we can find was air asia flight 8501 back in december of
7:04 am
20 freezing rain from surabaya to singapore. did we find out what caused that plane to go down? >> off the top of my head i don't know. this plane is just very, very commonly flown around the world and i have been to the airbus factories in france and they will tell you we build planes for all of the world to fly, not just the best and the brightest that come out of the world air forces. we build them for pilot who is may not be topical ber. this is concerning. >> he may have gotten a distress call. >> they had an incident of some sort. whether it was -- my concern is that a single engine failure will generally not bring down an aircraft these days. you would have to be looking at
7:05 am
a catastrophic event whether that would be both engines were lost or keeping in mind that birds don't fly at 34,000 feet. whether it's sort of a criminal event. we simply don't know. >> tom costello thank you very much. once again we know that an airbus a-320 has crashed somewhere in the french alps on a flight from barcelona to d uss eldorf being operated by german wings airlines. let us cause and give other stations a chance to trourn their regular programming. . good morning. joining the "today" show. another big story we will continue to follow the plane crash we have been reporting leaving from barcelona to d uss eldorf but another breaking story overnight coming in the

"new york times." angelina jolie revealing she had preventive surgery to remove her ovaries after doctors found a sign of early cancer. hoda kotb reports. >> ovarian cancer kills about 14,000 women every year. 20,000 women were diagnosed. angelina jolie chose another preventive surgery and that may surprise people. she wanted to share with people to let people know they have options. in an op ed in this morning's "new york times," she writes she chose to have her ovaries and falopian tubes removed last week to reduce her chance of getting cancer. the 39-year-old oscar winner revealed she had a double mastectomy after losing her mother to ovarian cancer in
7:07 am
2007. >> after losing my mom to these issues i'm grateful for it and moved by the kind support from people. really very grateful. >> two week ago the results revealed possible early signs of ovarian cancer. she writes i went to see the surgeon who treated my mother ask she teared up when you saw me. you look just like her. i broke down and we smile and agreed we were there to deal with any problem. let's get on with it. >> she is a movie star and her journey of decision making is agonizing and fear and all women struggle with that any time they hear a possibility of a disease. in her case a severe cancer generations of cancer i can understand why she did it. >> while the surgery was less complex than the double mastectomy the results put her into forced menopause. >> i will not be able to have
7:08 am
more children and i expect physical changes, but i feel at ease with whatever will come. not because i am strong because this is part of wife. she called her husband and father of her six children brad pitt. >> i called my husband in france. the beautiful thing about such moments is that there is so much clarity. jolie acknowledges while it's impossible to remove the risk of getting cancer she remains hopeful about her health and future. >> a lot of women might be thinking about that decision and you can check with your doctor but you can see why it made sense for her with her mom and her children. >> this was her choice and others have different choices. we will look at this in the next half hour with a medical doctor. the legal battle may be far from over at the university of virginia. rolling stone had apologized for
7:09 am
their reporting and now police say there is no evidence to back up the original claims. gabe gutierrez is in chaf lotsville. >> reporter: they spoke with about 70 people during the investigation that lasted several months that has been suspended, but not closed. police can't rule out something terrible happened, but just not what was described. the university accused of gang rape is exploring legal options saying rolling stone sought to turn fiction into fact is shameful. >> can i say that nothing happened? no. we found no evidence to support the allegations. >> those allegations published in the rolling stone magazine. a woman identified as jackie claiming she was sexually assaulted in 2012. >> there is a chance the entire thing is false. >> this is one of the jackie's former friends.
7:10 am
>> jackie's accountable has been in question for a long time. they called in the chief saying he couldn't find evidence either that was no big surprise. >> in april of last year jackie's roommate removed broken glass from her face in a separate assault, but the roommate denies that. jackie said he called her mother but there was no evidence about that call. >> it's never been just about the details of jackie's story. there hundreds of other survivors and we want to make sure we have as few in the future as we can. >> the investigation confirms that the university provided support and care to a student in need. but now some advocates worry it will be tougher for future victims. >> this is a bad day for all rape victims. it will be harder for the victims to be believed when they are raped. >> reporter: the attorney for jackie declined to comment.
7:11 am
as for rolling stone they apologized to readers and will only say they are awaiting the out come to the independent investigation into their reporting from the journalism school. that is expected to be published in the next few weeks. >> thank you very much. that's go to politics and the pieces are falling into place for the 2016 presidential race. more candidates are expected to announce their plans after texas republican ted cruz became the first to toss his hat into the race. >> today i am announcing that i am running for president of the united states. >> and there it was. ted cruz joins us with his wife heidi. good morning to both of you. senator and mrs. cruz are you ready for what's about to happen in your lives and the attention you are getting. you are getting some in the newspapers both good and bad. >> i hope so. we're ready for going forward and doing everything we to turn
7:12 am
the country around. >> you are not someone who speaks the spotlight. you don't do interviews and i am happy you decided to do this interview. are you ready for the personal scrutiny that this will bring and in some ways already has. >> any time you embark upon something bigger than yourself and your own family i don't know that you feel fully prepared but we have a very strong marriage and incredibly strong family guided by our faith and we are ready to see change and honored to have a voice. >> you are known for taking on your own party. at one point you called mainstream republicans squishes and led your party into parts that backfired. you have detractors not only across the aisle, but within your own party. how can you win unless you build
7:13 am
a broader coalation than the one you have? >> we need a broad coalition and bring toll the old reagan coalition of evangelicals and republican women and young people and reagan democrats and bring everyone together. one of the things that is striking people are hurting. they recognize the path we are on is not working and looking for a change. they're looking to get back to the principals that made america strong. >> on the subject of a broad coalition, is there room in ted cruz's party for those socially liberal and pro choice and support gay marriage? >> absolutely. we welcome a broad tent and a broad coalition. what i am trying to do is stand for principal. the two things i have tried to do in my time in the senate have been to tell the truth and
7:14 am
number two, do what i pedestrian i would do. the interesting thing is people can respect that even if they don't agree on everything. >> you know your reputation in your short time in the senate. you are a guy who does not back down. who will not compromise. i think you referred to yourself recently i'm kind of like the disruptive act in politics. will you bring that brand to the white house if you are elected? >> let me disagree with the premises. i never said i won't compromise. from day one, i said my attitude is the same as ronald reagan. he said what do you do if you offer half a loaf? you take it and you come back. >> you also said "i don't know what washington needs is more compromise." >> because what washington does often is compromises going backwards. i'm happy to work with anyone democrat independent,
7:15 am
libertarian and republican, if they are shrinking the size of the federal government and expanding liberty. what washington does is has compromises like the bill that passed in december. a trillion dollar spending bill that paid off corporate welfare and special interest in washington and grew government. that's not a good compromise because it's not fixing the problems. >> quickly, you heard the adjectives used to describe your husband. you can read them in the paper. is the public perception of this man inaccurate? >> red cruz is someone who tells the truth and knows what he believes. it was one of the things that drew me to him. this is a person of conviction. i think the american people want to know what they are getting. >> a couple weeks ago you were at an event and using your rhetoric and said the world is on fire. there was a 3-year-old girl up
7:16 am
front and she took it literally and said the world is on fire. he pivoted quickly. is he that agile with your children at home? >> our 6-year-old who tweeted with him, she is almost 7. she came home from school and said to her father that a lot of the kids at school were talking about the dad and not about her. ted said wow, he said same is true for me. i spend my day talking about you. he is very, very agile and it made her proud. >> you are off and running and we appreciate you stopping by the studio. >> thank you, matt. it is breathtaking and encouraging. the energy and exhilaration there yesterday that we are seeing on the trail takes your breath away. >> good luck to you both. mrs. cruz thank you very much. let's go over to al for a check of the weather. >> thank you so much. we have a risk of strong storms. we haven't had tornados since

tuesday morning, the 24th day of march, 2015. we start with breaking news out of france where a germanwings passenger liner to dusseldorf germany has crashed. >> the french president said he believings it is likely that none of the 148 people on board has survived. >> bill neely is in london. good morning to you. >> good morning, matt. that will be difficult news for the people of france to swallow. hollande said no survivors
7:31 am
expected. 148 people on board, 142 passengers and the two pilots and four crew are thought to have died. it crashed in a very mountainous area 9,000 feet and very middle road access. rescuers will have a tough time getting to that area. even if there were to be survivors, it would be hard to access them. we are learning a few more details about the flight. it was about a quarter of the way into its flight from barcelona to dusseldorf. the pilot did accepted a distress call. a 7700 sos. it was flying at 38,000 feet. the decent was fairly normal. it was dropping at a rate of 3,000 to 4,000 feet a minute. that would be normal for an approach to an airport. there were airports around nice
7:32 am
and marseille. many ski resorts. the pilot did not have time to get any of those and it crashed in the middle of the french alps. hollande said no survivors. back to you. >> bill neely in london reporting on breaking news that we have been covering for the last half hour or so. >> we will continue to follow it. new twists on the robert durst case. he was denied bail in louisiana and we are learn being what he was doing according to police in the days before his arrest. we will talk to his defense attorney in a moment. first let's go to stephanie goss in new orleans for us. what can you tell us? >> reporter: prosecutors revealed that they had him under surveillance in the days leading up to his arrest. monitoring his cell phone which he had stopped using. they may never have found himd if he had not phoned in for voice mail twice in his hotel in
7:33 am
new orleans. >> even his lawyer admitted he was unlikely to get bail on the two weapons charges, and he didn't. >> i didn't have any hope at all that the judge would set a bail bond. we are not surprised. >> durst jumped bail in texas in 2001 after being accused of murdering his neighbor and later found not guilty of the charge. in the documentary the jinx he said this about bail. >> goodbye $250,000 and goodbye jail. i'm out. >> on monday prosecutors revealed in detail what police found after durst's arrest. a flesh mask with salt and pepper hair not for trick or treating. the money, mr. $42,000 in the room with another $117,000 waiting to be picked up. a mab of the gulf coast
7:34 am
including cuba. not nearly as serious as the charge of murdering a woman. he could be sentenced to 10 to 20 years without parole. investigators are digging up cold cases, police in vermont are looking into the disappearance of 18-year-old college student lynn who went missing in 1971. releasing a statement on monday saying in part, we are aware of the connection between robert durst and lynn. we have been aware of this connection for several years and have been working with various outside agencies as we follow this lead. at the time durst owned a health food store named all good things. it would become the title of a thinly fictionalized movie about his life. >> katie and i moved to vermont and lived a back to the land lifestyle. >> in 1982 his first wife kathy would go missing too.
7:35 am
her body has never been found. he has always insisted he knows nothing about his wife's disappearance. his court date is next thursday. his head was shaven with a scar visible. his lawyers say he is recovering for brain surgery. >> i will stake it steph 18. let's go to his defense attorney. good morning to you, sir. >> good morning. >> you heard our reporter describe him as frail and thin and he had been held in a mental health part of the jail on suicide watch according to police. let's get one thing out of the way. in your view is he competent to stand trial and go through the legal proceedings or will you be making a claim that he is not fit to do so? >> i believe he is competent. he is not in good health. he has very serious health
7:36 am
problems but he is competent. >> what about his mental health and the notion of being on suicide watch? >> he is not suicidal. frankly he is relieved to be able to finally get a chance to get into court on all these rumors that have been swirling around. if we can just get to court in california however we are stuck here in louisiana. it's a nice place to be stuck, but the relatively minor charges compared to the accusation of the murder of susan berman. we top the get to california and try the case. >> i want to talk about the california case in a second but first the bail hearing. you knew your client was not going to be able to post bail. on the other hand he was found with a new cell phone and a fake id and a mask and a gun and a map of the gulf coast including cuba. can you explain that? >> yeah. we have been fighting for
7:37 am
discovery since he was arrested. discovery is when the prosecutors are required to give you the evidence and tell you what the evidence is. until yesterday when we had a hearing, we just didn't have anything. >> now you know. what do you make of it? >> we know what they are claiming. it's evidence. we will have to litigate it and whether it's admissible at all here in louisiana. if it's not admissible in louisiana i don't know that it's going to be in california. we are doing what lawyers do. we get into court and ask for the evidence. >> you mentioned the case in california and suggested that the evidence there is rather thin and based on the documentary, that may be the case. let's take the evidence that we are aware of because of this documentary. first that letter. bob durst acknowledges was sent by the killer. whoever killed susan berman.
7:38 am
the other written by him and the handwriting looks so similar. what is your argument? >> i'm not going to try the case on the "today" show or any other public forum other than in court. i'm not going to discuss that. we will be doing what lawyers do. try the case in court. if we have to try a part of it here in louisiana, well we have to do that. but really we need to get to california where the -- what i think happened is they jumped the gun because of the television show. >> a couple quick things. i know you don't want to get into the evidence. are you concerned about the alleged confession caught on tape? >> i told you i'm not going to discuss the evidence but that's not a confession. >> i know as his lawyer you likely advised him not to
7:39 am
participate this this documentary. nothing good could come of that. do you feel he regrets participating in it? >> i think he was regretting it in that bathroom conversation. he didn't take the good advice he got from lawyers. other than me i didn't talk to him. he didn't take that advice and he was tricked as he was told probably would happen. >> can i follow-up with what you mean by that? how so? >> there is no question. first, it's all in the editing. it was designed for good television but not to get to the truth. >> i know you will have a lot more to say in the court of law. i appreciate your time sir. thank you. >> you're welcome. thank you. >> let's get a check of the weather from al.
7:40 am
>> we have a rough winter with you the silver lining is that we had no severe weather. no tornados for the month of march. the last time was march 1969. we already passed that. march 1951 only six tornados. the fewest ever. 78 tornados is the 20-year average. the record was 1976 with 186. we have severe weather firing up. warm moist air in the south and colder air from the rockies. the convergent zone will be somewhere today between oklahoma missouri and arkansas for damaging winds, hailing and tornados tomorrow. it moves further to the east and in fact we actually have an enhanced risk of severe weather going from wichita falls,
7:41 am
good morning, i'm meteorologist bill henley. another cold start this morning, but we will see sunshine breaking through this afternoon. 40s today. warmer weather is ahead with a chance of showers. tomorrow a chance of afternoon showers with a high of 50. warmer on thursday 68 degrees despite some rain and a slight chance of a thunderstorm. then the rain picks up friday in time for chilly air this weekend. highs in the 40s on saturday and sunday. have a great day. >> and that's your latest weather. >> thank you very much. >> coming up on trending this is near and dear to me. can you afford to go out anymore? you will not believe how much it costs to hire a baby-sitter in america. >> more on angelina jolie's decision to undergo preventive surgery to remove her people think californians are just a bunch of dreamers. with our heads in the clouds like a bunch of space cadets huh?
7:42 am
what? (explosion) i'm drawing a blank. what's my line? maybe we do live in a fantasy? a little bit out there maybe? but just a bunch of dreamers no way! we're just like everyone else we put our board shorts on one leg at a time. start dreaming big at visitcalifornia.com grandpa bode, grandma said you used to be out of control. really... i guess i did take some risks. anncr: bode, bode miller!!! trained a little bit differently. a little too honest sometimes. the media is useless. you were out of control. but not always.

matter how scared and inexperienced i was, i wasn't going to break the baby. >> trust your instinct and as long as you love your baby everything will work out fine. >> then the things nobody tells you. >> the thing i wish i knew was how hard breast feeding was going to be. i assumed this was something that i could naturally do. >> point the penis down. nobody tells you that. i went through a box of diapers trying to find out why my son leaked through. >> you will never ever again get a full night of sleep. >> it never happens. let it go. bye-bye sleep. >> there lessons you wasn't learn until they are home. >> throw away the to do list. nothing on that list is as important as nurturing that soul. >> what i wish i would have known before i took my son home from the hospital was that he was going to teach me as much as
8:42 am
i was going to teach him. >> well said. we have honest answers. we are tackling a topic called sharing. turning to social media to manage the highs and lows. how much is too much? chanel is here with her fellow today parenting team. we have joanne richards and the creator of the blog. good morning to all of you. nice to see you. i like that we have a dad doing it. >> we need more das involved. >> where do you come down on it? >> you like to share on social media? >> when it comes to sharing, it's how you do it. you share the good and the bad. my 4-year-old was trying to pee like daddy was and she is a girl. >> let's figure out why that was a problem. we have to share the good and the bad. we need to see the bad too.
8:43 am
>> chanel, you talked about an occasion and it was helpful. >> sometimes it turns into bragging in some ways as opposed to sharing, but one day, i have two 2-year-olds and a 5-year-old. i wanted to wean them off of pacifiers. i got hundreds of comments of them giving me different ways. people gave me advice. i took the best of all of it and i figure cold turkey doesn't work for me. there was one saturday afternoon i was by myself and they were both screaming. i got my phone and tweeted i'm cracking. i didn't say anything else. people knew who i was talking about. people said hang in there, read books. i tweeted the books are not working. it became a therapy session for me and didn't feel so alone. this morning we are pacifier-free. it felt good. >> you keep it real and that's
8:44 am
why i love to read your writing. there is a good side of sharing and sometimes it can make other parents feel alienated. i don't look like her. i don't have it all perfectly assembled like those that post on facebook seem to. >> they don't share the hard because they think when parenting gets hard they are doing something wrong. that's thenot the case. it's hard especially for those doing it right. i had a decade where i couldn't get my kids to sleep. she might as well ask me to climb mount everest. i i didn't have time. i said i am in the middle of bedtime and i am playing a game of whack a mole. they keep coming out of their rooms. so many people said me too. the advice is not what helped. it's the me too. it's the reassurance of i'm not
8:45 am
e. me a morororororororororororororeee >> what isi kf. >> i think as social media influencers and parents, the owness is on us to know where the line is. sometimes i don't need to see the floating doo doo. you say if there is not a picture, it's not real. i will take your word for it. >> as kids get older, you don't top the share their business. that's not for them to decide. >> the visual footprint is real. pictures of me on the toilet when i was 4 or 5 years old. my kid is going for a job interview at age 22 or 24, do i want this picture out there. their medical information too. some health things can stay off line. >> good conversation can continue online. we top the hear from you at home

i want to ask you how well you know the meats. >> flank steak or porter house. that's sirloin. >> rib eye. >> and london broil. >> got two out of three wrong. we are making beef and broccoli. >> this is my go to week night wonder recipe. you start with the meat and cut it against the grain the reason is there is this muscle fiber built in the meat. this is going to help it be easier to chew and make them nice and thin. i am using a large knife and if you want you can use kitchen shears and go crazy. it makes it easy. >> savannah does it with pinking shears. >> little designs. we cut it nice and thin. we going to marinade it? >> we are. three ingredients.
8:50 am
sugar, oyster sauce and you have to try this oyster sauce. it's complex and so good. a little salty. if you love this buy oyster sauce. if you love chinese cuisine, you will use it all the time. there is a great recipe. this seductively simple box choi. >> how far in advance would do you this? >> any time you use a marinade let it marinade overnight and it makes it more tender and wonderful. four to six minutes. you can buy broccoli cut in bags. super simple. a lot of times they come with the stalk and some people toss it behind. you are wasting all this food. a great tip is to use a peeler. it makes it nice and thin. >> those go in? >> this is the only way to get
8:51 am
my nephews to eat broccoli. this adds a subtle nutty flavor to the broccoli and throw it in. >> broccoli first? >> one to two minutes. that's it. after one to two minutes -- >> how is it down there? >> that was great. >> you add a little bit of water. this is the best trick. it continues to cook and steam the broccoli and locks in that beautiful bright green flavor. the only seasoning you need is a little bit of salt. >> after a while, you can see this. >> see if you can flip it? >> i'll eat that one. >> when do we put the beef? in? >> the broccoli is beautiful and bright and we are going to top it. i'm using brown rise because it's healthier, but use whatever you want. we will add a little bit more.
8:52 am
>> in the same wok? >> a little peanut oil. i like to place it down because you get a nice seer. it's going to seer the meat. do you hear that sizzle? it's like music to my ears. >> that's going to cook for how long? >> you want to seer the outside and get it rare in the middle. >> i see carson is enjoying and so is al. let's look at what it looks like on the beauty shot. this is beautiful. >> they are enjoying it. >> it's terrific. i'm eating and enjoying the broccoli. >> literally one to two minutes. that's it. >> sesame on top. >> you can replace the proteins. seafood would be quicker. >> what about chicken? >> that would be good too. >> al is doing the segment

we will call her dr. debbie. she said it was okay. an assistant professor at the school of medicine. good to see you both. let's start off with the news breaking with angelina jolie. she wrote the op ed piece with preventive surgery. what is this procedure? how dangerous is it or not? why did she do it? >> it's not so much that the surgery is dangerous per se, but unlike the removal of the breasts, that's very visible. this is invisible. it's inside, but much more impactful on health. when you have the ovaries removed, you are menopausal. you are post menopausal after the surgery. she had genetic markers for breast and ovaries and a strong
9:16 am
family history. this is a big move on her part, but her thinking was i'm at risk for ovarian cancer unless i do this. she had tests with increased inflammation. that suggested that risk was increasing. >> would there be other options? >> there. there forms of hormonal treatment and frequent medical follow-up. if ovarian cancer develops we don't have effective treatments and no other option is as decisive as this one. >> genetic testing is a preventable method. how can we know if it really works? is it good? >> they can tell you about the risk of developing cancer. it can't tell you for sure. she has a mutation. that doesn't mean she would definitely get it, but it increases the risk. one of the important things is after she had her double mastectomy, she wrote her piece
9:17 am
and the number of women who got evaluated doubled. it doesn't mean they have to have surgery, but to talk about the options and risks. when you think about how many lives that saves. hopefully this will do the same. >> talking about it is good. >> we need to know the reliability of the test and it's good and there has to be something you can do with the information. in this case there was. >> let's go to antibiotics. doctors are prescribing them and don't know what they are looking for. there is a blood test to help with this. >> the data is there and most of us if we have symptoms, we want to get something. the problem with that is if people get antibiotics they don't work against viruses. you are healing but the problem is that if you take antibiotics unnecessarily and the bacteria can develop resistance. they fight the antibiotics in
9:18 am
the future. they stop working in the future. >> when will we see this test? >> what they have done is used a bunch of tests that are available and combined them to say if you have this pattern, it's bacterial and you don't need antibiotics. we were talking about the fact that this decision is made by doctors and patients tens of thousands of times every day. i'm coughing and do i need antibiotics. unless this is easy and inexpensive will it be ready for prime time. i don't know what the cost will be. there is a strategy and if you think you might need an antibiotic, don't fill it unless. that's a close upon approximatation to what this test will give us. >> this is it. allergy season. every year for the last five years, this is the worst allergy season ever.
9:19 am
your head is going to explode. there will be mucous everywhere. >> you know who i blame? you. we had a terrible winder and we get the allergies. >> how bad is this season? >> it's hard to know for sure, but with the amount of snow it's i wet winter it will be worse. >> yes! >> it's al's fault. >> do we do anything to prepare? >> if you are prone to allergies you might start anti-histamines and decongest ants earlier. it used to be by injection but it's under the tongue. it will be bad. >> you can look at your home. you can take out the heating and the ac. when you change there is a lot of dust and mold that accumulates. when you switch, you blow that out. it's penitentiary to clean those things. >> now i will go take some medicine.

you know how it is. the pounds creep on as you get colder. >> it is often a standard blood test for middle-aged women. but a government task force recently found there is no benefit in screening someone who does not show symptoms. >> here to talk about that is nbc news medical contributor dr. natalie azar. but first, we'll take a minute to talk about the news that broke overnight regarding angelina jolie's latest surgery. and we'd said -- some of the information said her mom died of -- when he was 49. she was diagnosed at 49 and died seven years later. nice to see you. tough subject. >> it's interesting. angelina jolie made the statement that she was going to remove her fallopian tubes and her ovaries. were you surprised by that decision as a doctor? >> not at all. in fact, as i stated this morning, she had a double mastectomy. and i think it was always her intention to go ahead with the removal of the ovaries and
10:22 am
fallopian tubes because of her risk for cancer. what she did in the two years is basically followed appropriate surveillance. that means doing pelvic ultrasounds once or twice a year. getting a blood test. she had very close follow-up with her doctors who made the recommendation to have her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed. >> some people have a family history of this type of cancer. should they look into that possibility? >> there are a few different syndromes that carry a risk of ovarian cancer. the one that we're specifically talking about is the breast and ovarian hereditary cancer syndromes. if you have a positive history of breast cancer in your family you should certainly be tested. but the number is quite low. it's less than 1% in the general
