second hand smoke may not bad for young lungs, it could also be harmful to children's teeth. japanese research links exposure to second-hand smoke with an increased risk of cavities in young children. those exposed to tobacco smoke at four months old were twice as likely to have a cavity by the age of three than children living in a non-smoking home. this was an observational study, meaning it does not prove smoke exposure causes cavities. a new study suggests children who regularly use antibiotics may gain weight faster than those who have never taken the drugs. the australian study found children who had been prescribed antibiotics seven more more times weighed an average of three pounds more by the age of 15 than children who had never taken antibiotics. researchers say the drugs may wipe out the healthy bacteria in the body, leading to permanent changes in how food is absorbed.

a little bit of a different formulation and everyone should get vaccinated against the flu from six months and up. >> let's talk about the vaccines that are available and as you said, how effective are they? last year didn't seem to be so effective, or am i wrong? >> well, vaccines every year are somewhat of a guess as to which will be the most predominant strain so the cdc usually does a good job in figuring that out ahead of time. last year there was a miss on one of the components of the flu vaccine, but still it's getter to bet a flu vaccine than not to get one. >> i guess like maybe a lot of bad news you hear, the strain wasn't so effective and we think that was in effective. tell us about the flu shots this year. are we wasting our time? i'm one of those people that sometimes i get -- you know, i had one bad experience and then i didn't get the flu shot but last year i got it. >> good. >> but you should get one -- get the shot every year? >> right. more people actually die from the flu than many of the other

communicable diseases we have in this country. it doesn't get press but it's important to get a flu vaccine for many reasons. one is because if you get a case of the flu, then you tend to spread it around so it's important during the flu season for everybody to be washing their hands to make sure they're not spreading it. what's a little new and different in truck in seen there's different formulations so people over the age of 65 should be getting the high dose flu vaccine which is extremely effective and gives them immunity for a longer period of time and then for people in our age group, absolutely. if you've had a case of the flu -- and i got a case of the flu last year -- it laysout out for a couple of weeks and it can be dangerous and there could be side effects so it's safer to get a vaccine than not. >> you don't the flu now? >> i do not. >> and i don't either so we should shake hands. we have you on the calendar every year so we thank you to talk about this important issue. thank you very much, cheryl. >> thank you. the "today" show's cheery furry four legged friend

11:51 am
will be short lived. we'll drop back down to the low 60s by tomorrow. i'm tracking a chance of weekend showers but a live look, you can barely see clouds. lots of sunshine for us on this thursday. temperatures at 63. our humidity is at 63% and light wind speeds right now. across the rest of the region, 64 in the poconos, 26 in wilmington. 66 in dover. 72 in wild pood. temperatures close to 70 already at the atlantic city airport. 67 in millville. so we have cool and mild air sitting over our region but take a look at what will happen from thursday into friday. you'll notice the cold air moving in from the north and it's going to settle over us as we sbush the rest of the weekend so expect cooler temperatures. we've been well above average so one more warm day on tap for us. then we'll see the cold front moving through that will help relieve the cold air from the north that comes in over philadelphia heading into tomorrow and lingering into the weekend and most of next week. that will set us up for a chilly weekend start so saturday
11:52 am
morning temperatures will be in the 30s and 40s to start off the day. we will, however, sboorm the 60s on saturday and sunday. but a closer look at our satellite radar shot shows mostly cloudy skies, a few more clouds moving into the lehigh valley and into the poconos. one thing we want to point out is it will be a breezy evening ahead. you'll see wind gusts to 23 miles per hour as the cold front makes its way through. we'll see wind gusts up to 31 miles per hour in places like mount pocono. that will linger into our overnight hours and as you you head back to work tomorrow so it will feel colder tomorrow than what we're seeing today with the cold northerly wind moving in. so a closer look at our sunday sprinkle. saturday we stay nice and dry but sunday overnight heading into your early morning hours. by 8:00 a.m. we could see sprinkles moving into the lehigh valley and into the poconos. maybe another round closer to 5:00 p.m. again, these are sprinkles, maybe a tenth of an inch and
11:53 am
that's going to affect lancaster county to the lehigh valley. as far as highs around the region today, we will stay in the mid-70s which will be nice, mild and sunny expected for us. mid-70s for allentown, high 60s for the pocono bus a big drop as we head into tomorrow. you'll notice the wind direction shifts out of the north and we have that cold wind coming in and temperatures will stay mainly in the low 60s as we end your work week. as far as today, nice and warm, temperatures between 74 and 77 degrees. but, again, you'll notice that cold front comes in and drops our temperatures so your seven-day forecast shows that we have a big drop on the way, about 12 degrees between today and tomorrow. we stay in the mid-60s for saturday, we track a chance of sprinkles sunday morning and then by monday we drop into the mid- -- the low 60s, i should say, with partly sunny skies. stay with us. you're watching nbc 10 news. vince mazzeo-

but there's a word for politicians like that. hypocrite. former secretary of state hillary clinton is continuing her testimony before a u.s. house committee investigating the deadly 2012 attacks in benghazi. now, clinton told the house committee there were no denials of support from washington or from the u.s. military during the attack. she's calling for transparency in the investigation which critics say is a partisan attempt to undermine her presidential campaign.
