7:03 am
>> you didn't want to eat part of the bread. what's the deal? >> it's awkward eating in front of them. >> it's good to use a fork. just take a little off the top. then eat as much as you want. >> this morning's eye opener is presented by toyota, let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." the nation's fourth largest city is struggling with deadly widespread flooding triggered by historical rainfall. more water rescues are under way in houston this morning, even as flood waters recede. >> five people died yesterday in southeast texas. nearly a foot and a half of rain reportedly fell just west of houston. more wet weather is in the forecast. texas and nearby states face
7:04 am
omar villafranca is in houston where people are rushing to escape water. >> reporter: good morning. some scary moments in northwest houston when rescue crews had to use boats to get residents out of an apartment complex. you can see some of the residents are here. they were able to grab basically just a few thing, some clothes they could wear today, rescue a few pets. this is also runoff from yesterday's record rainfall. the amount of rain, historic. the rescue attempts, dramatic. streets became waterways, littered with people holding only what they could carry in their arms, and entire neighborhoods swallowed by rising waters. >> we panicked. we have a 2-week-old. the water keeps rising. it was unsafe for him. it's terrifying, especially if you can't swim. >> reporter: first responders worked around the clock, in
7:05 am
children and seniors and pets. >> brunging him through. >> reporter: rescuers dove into neck-high water to save livestock from drowning. people escaped to safety any way they could. on air mattresses, in empty container bins, even inside refrigerators. texas governor greg abbott. >> please remember the easy phrase turn around, don't drown. stay out of the rising water. >> ever seen anything like this before? >> last time it got like this in this area was allison. the water line came up to here. >> you had about a foot of water. >> antbout a foot, yeah. >> reporter: this is the largest flood event to hit the houston area since tropical storm allison in 2001, where 23 were killed in texas alone. engineer sanita singh drowned while flood waters overtook her
7:06 am
her husband says his heart is broken. >> cancer, a heart problem, i understand. but this? there's nothing that could be done. it's a terrible loss for me, for everybody. >> reporter: many schools in the houston area are closed today as cleanup gets under way, but there is more rain in the forecast. gayle? >> that's the last thing they need. thank you very much, omar. >> we have breaking news from afghanistan, where dozens of people were killed in a taliban attack on a government security agency. it began with a suicide car bombing this morning outside the agency's compound in kabul. gunmen then stormed in and started shooting. security forces fought them off, leaving at least 28 dead and more than 300 others wounded. president obama today begins a week-long trip to saudi arabia, britain, and germany. at his first stop, he'll talk with saudi leaders facing trouble at home and abroad. he'll also meet with leaders of six persian gulf countries to discuss the fight against isis. the president talked with us about his foreign policy monday
7:07 am
we sat down after officials announced another 200 american troops will be sent to iraq. they will help local forces troo i to recapture a key city from isis. >> this is a long, hard fight, as i just said last week, but what we've seen is they've lost territory. as we see, the iraqis willing to fight and gaining ground, let's make sure we're providing them more support. we're not doing the fighting ourselves. but when we broprovide training, when we're gaining intelligence working with the coalitions we have, what we've seen is that we can continually tighten the noose. my expectation is that by the end of the year, we will have created the conditions whereby mosul will eventually fall. >> when you arrived in office, i think one of the early things you said to the cia director is, i want to get osama bin laden, and you did. i assume you feel the same way about baghdadi.
7:08 am
entire isil leadership structure, which is as wicked and as destructive as any group of individuals on this planet. >> and do you think you'll be able to get baghdadi by the end of your term? >> my goal is to make sure that we're doing things right and we've got a plan and we execute. you take bin laden as an example. i would have liked to have gotten him the first year, but you don't have that luxury as president. what you have the ability to do is to put and train all the pieces, intelligence, military, diplomatic, and you just keep on grinding it out. >> let me turn to something that's been in the news recently, which is the 28 pages of the 9/11 report. have you read it? >> you know, i have a sense of what's in there, but this has
7:09 am
generally deal with through the intelligence community and jim clapper, our director of national intelligence, has been going through to make sure that whatever it is that is released is not going to compromise some major national security interest in the united states. there are just reams of intelligence coming through constantly. some of them are raw and not tested. some of them are -- >> and some of that may be in the 28 pages. >> some of that may be in the 28 pages and i don't know. the point is, it's important for there to be an orderly process where we evaluate this because what can end up happening is if you just dump a whole bunch of stuff out there that nobody knows exactly how credible it is, was it verified or not, they could end up creating problems. >> but the point is, it's been a long time. >> yeah, it is. >> a long time. >> that i can acknowledge. hopefully this process will come to a head fairly soon. >> and what about this
7:10 am
will allow families to sue the saudi government? and other governments in similar circumstances. >> this is not just a bilateral u.s.-saudi issue. this is a matter of how generally the united states approaches our interactions with other countries. if we open up the possibility that individuals in the united states can routinely start suing other governments, then we are also opening up the united states to being continually sued by individuals in other countries. >> really interesting as the president is embarking on a trip to saudi arabia today. >> yes, and the interesting thing, talking about the 28 pages, you get a sense, there's so much talk about it, that something is going to happen soon in terms of releasing that. there's a lot of stuff in there that may not be incriminating, as some suspect, but a lot of stuff because they did a lot of
7:11 am
it has been a long time. >> why now? >> couldn't they have done this earlier? in our next hour, the president talks about russian president putin. you can watch the entire conversation tonight on my pbs program. the polls are open right now in new york's crucial presidential primary. hillary clinton and donald trump want top wide widen the gap between them and their opponents. trump is expected to win most of the 95 republican delegates. we begin with major in the republican race. he's at a central synagogue in midtown manhattan. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. light turnout so far, where donald trump is expected to arrive and cast a ballot for himself in the next couple hours. big question as you indicated, how many of new york's 95 delegates will trump win tonight?
7:12 am
by that, they mean a range of anywhere from 88 to 92. that will propel trump toward five primaries next week and keep alive his hopes to claim the republican nomination outright. >> we're going to start winning, winning, winning. >> reporter: it's been almost a month since donald trump won a primary, but with a new york victory in sight, he's starting to talk like a presumptive nominee. >> we're going to do it on the first ballot. we're going to get to that big 1237. >> reporter: trump expects to do well in five states voting next week, and he's well positioned to win a solid share of the 172 delegates awarded or influenced by the primary outcomes. >> no new yorker can vote for ted cruz, and no new yorker can vote for kasich. >> reporter: despite trump's bravado, kasich said trump's complaints about gop rules prove he has doubts. >> we're going to go to an open convention.
7:13 am
they don't like the idea of an open convention. >> reporter: and trump tried even harder than ever to celebrate 9/11 heroism, but the effort fell short. >> i was down there, and i watched our police and our firemen down on 7/11, down at the world trade center right after it came down. >> reporter: trump also suggested he had a personal hand in cleaning up after the attacks. >> everyone who helped clear the rubble, and i was there and i watched and i helped a little bit, but i want to tell you, those people were amazing. >> reporter: we asked trump's campaign what he meant by saying he helped out a little bit at ground zero, but gayle, we never heard back. >> all right. there's still time. thank you very much, major. hillary clinton is down playing talk of a big victory but appeared confident yesterday. "the new york post" headline says the former senator is feeling the bern, shows her sweating a little bit, as her brooklyn born challenger tries to pull off another upset win. nancy is at clinton's polling
7:14 am
nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. behind me is the elementary school where clinton herself cast her own ballot the two times she ran for senate. she's feeling so good about her homefield advantage that in a slip of the tongue late yesterday, she said that she's hoping that she can wrap up the nomination today. now, mathematically, that is not quite possible, though a win in this delegate-rich state certainly would help. she quickly amended herself to say she's not taking anything for granted. and she can't because bernie sanders is the one who has been drawing massive crowds here in new york. 15,000 here, 25,000 there, and he has shown he can close the gap before. he was ten points back in michigan, for example, just as he is here, and he ended up with a narrow win. the big difference here in new york is that clinton has virtually the entire new york power structure on her side. she's been campaigning with both
7:15 am
city's mayor, with the new york governor, and sanders admitted to me yesterday, that this is going to be a tough race for him. he said don't count him out, but it's going to be tough. and the bigger challenge looming for him is that there are five more northeastern states that are voting next week. according to almost all of the polling that's been done, he's trailing in most of them. >> all right. nancy, thank you so much. managing editor of bloomberg politics is here. good morning. you just heard nancy report that, the senator saying yesterday she hopes to wrap up this no, ma'ammination today. could it be closer than expected? >> it could be closer than expected. bernie sanders has, in most of these states where he's spent a lot of time on the ground and an the air with advertising, has tended to close the gap. if you look at the public polling and the private polling, it seems like she's going to win handily, whether that's in the high single digits, maybe low double digits. you never know what can happen on primary day. >> suppose she wins.
7:16 am
>> well, the question is the definition of wrap it up. she wins a big victory here -- if she wins on a scale we think she's going to win, she'll add a few extra delegates. if he were to win by a narrow margin, big, huge upset, he wouldn't gain much in terms of delegates. she's still ahead 200 pledge delegates roughly speaking. but he's got the money and inclination to keep going. she's going to have to fight through every primary and caucus through june 7th. she won't wrap this up probably until the convention because she's going to need super delegates probably, almost certainly, to be the nominee. but every contest where sanders does not close the gap by an appreciable amount is another contest in which he, in fact, is falling behind in terms of what he actually has to do. the math gets harder and harder for him every time he either doesn't win a state 60/40 or he loses, as he might today. >> let's look at the republicans. if all goes according to plan, donald trump is going to win huge here in new york, according to him.
7:17 am
>> now you can't say the word any other way. every time i hear it in my head, i hear bernie sanders' voice. how is he doing when it comes to the delegates? he doesn't seem to be holding up as well as ted cruz when it comes to garnering the delegates. >> ted cruz is playing the inside game really well. donald trump seems to have found his footing again in his home state. he's likely to win all of most of the delegates here. as your segments earlier suggested, he's got a good calendar down the line. if he continues to win big, there's a chance he could end up getting the 1237 delegates and actually get this nomination before the cleveland convention. that is his goal. >> john, thank you so much. >> trump is complaining about it being rigged because he knows it's going to be an open convention. you buy that? >> could be. >> okay. >> thank you, john. rescuers from around the world are traveling to ecuador to help search for victims of the country's devastating earthquake.
7:18 am
people is expected to rise. one american is among the dead. more than 2600 people are hurt, and up to 100,000 may need aid. >> reporter: norah, good morning. so many people are sleeping outside this morning. families, mothers and fathers, kids. they have nowhere else to go. their homes have been destroyed. this morning as they sleep outside, now that we see the sun, search and rescue is resuming, and they're still finding people alive, buried under rubble. from beneath the rubble, a sign of life. this hand belongs to a man trapped under a flattened shopping center. firefighters pulled him out alive along with two other women on monday. they were wedged between a floor and a roof for more than 32 hours following the devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake. i felt that she was alive, said the husband of one of the survivors. rescuers frantically worked to free a man trapped under a

a man and a woman from ethiopia won the 120th boston marathon. the celebrations yesterday also included a pair of american runners. president obama tweeted his congratulations to ad congratulations to adrianne adrianne haslet and patrick downes. >> reporter: good morning. there were no records set here
7:45 am
but there were a number of shared milestones. for the first year, two victims of the bombings ran on prosthetic limbs and finished the race that changed their lives forever. >> ladies and gentlemen, patrick downes crossing the finish line. >> reporter: patrick downes finished and ran straight into the arms of his wife jessica. >> there's his wife jess hugging him. >> reporter: their embrace timed nearly to the minute when both were wounded in the bombings three years earlier. >> how are you? >> reporter: when we first met the cupping, they were newlyweds recovering in the hospital, after losing their left legs. >> when you were lying in that hospital bed three years ago, happening? no. even when i started to run about a year ago, people suggested it, i thought they were ludicrous.
7:46 am
hospital corridor turned into a run around the block, then a 5k. soon, downes began to believe he could run the marathon. >> so why are you doing it? >> i'm doing it because i can do it. so many of our friends who weren't as fortunate as i was to have a relatively healthy body wished that they had the opportunity to run a marathon. >> she is a role model. >> reporter: bombing survivor adrianne haslet also ran in monday's marathon. despite never running so much as a mile, she vowed to complete 26.2 of them after losing a portion of her left leg. >> my friends and family will tell you i'm very stubborn. i will too. >> reporter: she shared the source of her determination last month with norah o'donnell. >> i believe if you set your mind to something, you can do it. i thank my parents for raising me that way. >> but you do believe you control your life by how you react to things that happen to you. >> absolutely. absolutely i do. you can't control what happens in your life, but you can
7:47 am
>> reporter: since the bombings, they have personified boston strong. >> please give a warm welcome to adrianne haslet. >> reporter: rallying supporters in the city and beyond. but it was here at the finish line where they each were able to savor this personal goal. >> when did you know you were going to finish? >> when i turned down there. >> coming on to boylston? >> i figured even if the leg broke, i could crawl the rest of the way. >> reporter: while patrick crossed the finish line first under the afternoon sun, adrianne's victory was just auz brought. >> i'm really emotional. i think of all the different definitions that the finish line has held. it's pretty awesome. >> reporter: they're pulling up the finish line until next year. adrianne crossed this finish line in 10 hours and 40 minutes, but she did so with a lot of heart and a lot of support.
7:48 am
there was also a facebook posting in her support by patriots quarterback tom brady. gayle? >> that's so nice. thank you, don. go go, patrick. go, adrianne. i love patrick saying, i did it because i can. >> i love adrianne. >> it started with a you can what around the block. >> incredible. a close encounter with a dangerous pretdator ahead. why a woman climbed the . hi everybody. we've been watch thing skies. we are going to see a cooler day today where it's 64 degrees right now. there's a little bit of wet weather out there, very little. this is really a starved front. there's just not enough moisture to do any good for us,

7:57 am
a traffic backup on the long island expressway. >> so we have some better news here that we're getting the debris cleaned up, but it was an earlier accident that had all lanes closed. this is video from earlier. cu see the backup ridiculous. it was at exit 49. traffic detoured off to the service road and delays. even the alternates, northern state parkway also heavy, but right now wa we're seeing is that they have finally gotten all of that cleaned up and they're getting ready to open this, so it should be opening momentarily. of course it will take a while to get the backups cleared. former nypd officer was convicted of manslaughter at the accidental shooting death in brooklyn east pink houses. the da has recommended probation and home confinement, but no prison time.

it is tuesday, april 19th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead, including more of charlie's interview with president obama. what the president said to russia's leader during a phone
8:01 am
but first, here's today's eye opener at 8:00. >> scary moments in northwest houston, when rescuers are to use boats to get residents out of. >> you get a sense there's so much talk about it, that something is going to happen soon. >> big question, how many of new york's 95 delegates will trump win tonight? his top strategists believe he'll win most. >> she's feeling so good about her homefield advantage that in a slip of the tongue, she said she's hoping she can wrap up the nomination today. >> it seems like she's going to win handily, whether that's in the high single digits, maybe the low double digits. but you never know what can happen on primary day. >> they're still finding people alive buried underneath rubble. >> criminals steal debit card numbers by affixing an illegal card reading device to an atm. hidden cameras record your p.i.n. number when you enter it on the key pad, and it's done. >> there were no records set yesterday here on marathon monday, but there were a number
8:02 am
>> did you see the video that johnny depp and his wife amber heard made to placate the australian government? >> australia is a wonderful island with a treasure-trove of unique plants, animals, and people. >> it has to be protected. >> from the heart, totally convincing apology, until you zoom the picture out. >> it's funny. >> a lot of people were talking about that apology, that it looked a little odd. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. texas faces new flood risks on top of the misery delivered by yesterday's historic rainfall. "the houston chronicle's" headline says "in a flash" in reference to the waters that killed five people. >> there were more than 1200 water rescues in texas, and it continues this morning.
8:03 am
rubbermaid container bins or air mattresses, and even inside refrigerators. flood watches have been issued today from texas to louisiana and all the way up to missouri. new yorkers are vote toing today in the state's important primary contest. they'll decide 342 republican and democratic delegates. moments ago, hillary clinton and bill clinton cast their votes. hillary clinton and donald trump are favored in their home state. in buffalo last night, trump again criticized the gop nominating process, but trump is confident he will win the nomination outright. >> please, please, we don't want any more business, we're doing too much business. we're making too much money. no matter what you do, we don't want to win anymore. i'm going to say, sorry, we're going to keep winning. we're going to win, win, win, and we're going to make america
8:04 am
america first, folks. america first. >> 95 republican delegates are at stake in new york. anything above 90 would be a big night for trump. it could also be a springboard for next tuesday's primaries where 172 delegates are at stake. there are calls this morning to restart syrian peace talks. new video shows what activists say are air strikes by syria's government. it is new evidence that a cease-fire brokered by the united states and russia is crumbling. the opposition's leaders said they cannot negotiate while people are suffering and syria's president stays in power. president obama and russian president vladimir putin spoke on the phone yesterday about the crisis. we interviewed the president at the white house just after he talked with putin. >> is there a coming together in terms of ideas about peace and a cease-fire and who can do what to make syria a better place?
8:05 am
indicate that we're starting to see it fray more rapidly. and if the united states and russia are not in sync about maintaining it and getting a political track and transition moving, then we could be back in a situation we were in three, four weeks ago. and that would serve neither of our interests. but i think they're also very much committed to maintaining the structure of the syrian state, which in theory we don't object to either. where we have continually butted heads, and this has been true for six years now, is his insistence that he cannot back unilaterally the removal of assad. that's a decision that assad and the syrians have to make. >> the obama doctrine. what is the obama doctrine? >> i've always shied away from
8:06 am
what i believe is that the united states, as the world's singular superpower, has an obligation in all areas of the world where there's war and mayhem, to try to be a positive force. but that does not mean we should be deploying troops everywhere, where a crisis is taking place. we have to be judicious about how we use military power. >> when you stay don't do stupid stuff and when you said i'd like to be judged by what i didn't do, some say that in fact you're putting too much emphasis on what we don't dond not enough emphasis on the choices we might have to do. >> i've heard this argument. look, charlie, when we sat down together back in 2009 when i first came into office, we were still in the midst of two active wars. since that time, we've been able to wind down act i have combat in those two theaters.
8:07 am
in great shape. al qaeda at the core has been dismantled dismantled. bin laden is dead. isil is losing territory. so i've shown no hesitance to use our military where necessary to protect american lives, american interests. >> let me focus on the red-line decision you made. many look at that and say because you did not and went over the opposition of your advisers, which is what a president is expected to do, make the hard choices, that what we have today, in part because of that decision, we have devastated state. we have had close to 500,000 people die. >> i think there's no doubt that there are many in the middle east who would have preferred me taking a shot at assad. but the reason is not because of some abstract notions of red lines. assad is a horrible leader, a horrible dictator who has shattered his country.
8:08 am
that we need to get him out of there. >> you have said more than one time that we're the strongest military, we have the best economy. you've mentioned the culture. america should own the 21st century, your words. what could stop us? >> a couple things could stop us. number one is if our political system continues to be dysfunctional. it's fascinating the degree to which the single most important question i'm asked these days from other world leaders is, what's going on with your e elections elections? the current presidential election is just the tip of a broader iceberg of dysfunction that we've seen. >> can i tell you how many people that i talk to before i did this interview and the question of what has he learned and what is his advice for his successor came up all the time. >> right. and so one of the things that
8:09 am
breakthroughs are typically the result of just a lot of grunt work. there's a lot of blocking and tackling. what is important is making sure you have an organization that has integrity, that is clear about its mission. >> i love when he really gets personal about how he feels about things. >> that took place about 20 minutes in. >> i've been reading through the transcript. i keep highlighting every word. we're going to see more of this interview, right? >> all of it tonight on my pbs program.
8:10 am
>> then i'll go see him in germany over the weekend and do part two. >> there's more to discuss. >> i guess this means you passed your security clearance. that's good. >> and gayle, you know charlie doesn't just go for one interview. he says, i'd like a two for, please. it's an exclusive times two. >> i like it. >> who loves you at this table? >> i'm the luckiest man in the world. >> looking forward to it. >> very good interview. more to see tonight. all right. federal officials have reportedly launched a criminal investigation into blood testing company theranos. "the wall street journal" reports on the front page that the justice department and the securities and exchange commission are looking into whether the biotech start-up misled investors, partners, or government officials about its testing technology. theranos, led by founder and ceo elizabeth holmes, promised fast, cheap, and accurate blood tests
8:11 am
last month we spoke with "wall street journal" investigative reporter who first broke the news of the company's problems. >> so did they overpromise and underdeliver? p>> i think it's more than overhyping or overpropsmising. i think in this case, it's a company that may have gone live too soon with a medical technology, with blood tests that it wasn't yet sure or outside parties hadn't yet validated as accurate. you're talking about blood tests that patients and doctors rely on for very important health decisions. and i think now regulators are waking up to the situation and making the company validate its data and get its lab up to snuff. >> in a memo to partners yesterday, a theranos spokesman said, quote, the company
8:12 am
regulators and is cooperating with all investigations. >> fascinating story. >> whatever happens at theranos, somebody is going to get to the point where they want it to be, which is the idea of having an easier way of taking blood and an easier way and a faster way of analyzing it. because that's a crucial medical diagnostic. >> of course, as we all know. that's how we get tested for all of our ailments. blood testing, indeed. >> a lot of other companies are in fact trying to be where they say they want to be. >> there's more to come on this story. can't wait to see the next part. video shows a visitor to the toronto zoo taking a big risk all for a fallen baseball cap. the woman climbed over a fence saturday into part of the tiger enclosure. yikes. she caught the attention of a tiger who then lunged at her from behind a second fence. the unidentified woman made it out unharmed, but another visitor can be heard calling her a moron. the zoo is investigating. >> look at that tiger back and forth. >> she gets the tiger all riled up. the guy that called her a moron
8:13 am
bad example for all the children here. what are you thinking? >> it's a hat. >> that somebody else could get. >> crazy. >> now we have this incredible story. a sperm donor thought to be a genius who allegedly fathered at least three dozen children is revealed to be mentally ill.

8:15 am
who've had no prior treatment. it's the one and only cure that's one pill, once a day for 12 weeks. certain patients... can be cured with just 8 weeks of harvoni. with harvoni, there's no interferon and there are no complex regimens. tell your doctor if you have other liver or kidney problems, hiv, or other medical conditions, and about all the medicines you take including herbal supplements. taking amiodarone with harvoni may cause a serious slowing of your heart rate. common side effects of harvoni may include tiredness, headache and weakness. i am ready to put hep c behind me. i am ready to be cured. are you ready? ask your hep c specialist if harvoni is right for you. dogs - sure can be messy. but with nexgard, their flea and tick killer doesn't have to be. nexgard, the vet's #1 choice for dogs, is a delicious, beef-flavored chew that kills both fleas and ticks. so it's easy to give, easy to take. reported side effects include vomiting, itching,

8:19 am
in many, many counts is really to say that what you thought you were getting, you were not getting. you have xytex putting the profile online. this donor was supposed to be someone who had a genius iq of 160, read lots of books, played the drums, was perfectly physically healthy, well educated, and represented by someone at xytex, according to the plaintiffs, that he was quote/unquote, the perfect donor. so they move these plaintiffs and others toward this donor. what was he really? he was schizophrenic. he was a criminal. he was a felon who had been convicted. he had not been to college to go on and get further degrees. >> but is there no checking to see that people represent themselves accurately? >> no. >> anybody can walk in and say, look, i'm charlie rose smart, or
8:20 am
there's nobody that checks? >> no. let's look at what these plaintiffs really want. what they're looking for is exactly that. there is no verification. someone comes in, he did a 30-minute interview, filled out a form, checked all the boxes that he was just fine. we know he checked them off with forethought because he did say they was color blind. it's not like he just checked all nos. it's not only no verification of personal information, how much did it cost to go call the university and see if he was enrolled there? how much does it cost to do a background check for criminal history? very, very little money at all. and ultimately, you could get reports and a release from doctors to find out about medical conditions. >> they've said they'll vigorously defend themselves. in this case, the donor underwent a standard medical exam.
8:21 am
well, we'll see if that continues to play out. >> well, part of the problem is that although the defense is correct that they probably could have never found out about his mental illness but for the criminal case where he was found competent to stand trial but they found out that he was mentally ill. >> the call to action is fraud, misrepresentation? >> all those things. fraud, misrepresentation, negligence, unfair practices. the reason they can file it in california, california recognizes wrongful birth. another couple brought by nancy hirsch, a great lawyer in georgia, no wrongful birth there. >> thank you. >> keep us posted on this. >> interesting story. coming up next, what happened when construction workers go to battle in their bulldozers. you're watching "cbs this morning." look at that visual. >> boys in trucks. doctors recommend taking ...non-drowsy claritin every day of your allergy season. claritin provides powerful, non-drowsy 24 hour relief... for fewer interruptions from the amazing things you do every day.

8:36 am
breaking news photography for the refugee crisis. >> bravo to lin manuel miranda again. good to see for him. many people say they feel bloated at one time or another. we've all been there. from overeating to choosing the wrong foods. or some hidden cause. some of us suffer unintended consequences. in her new cure, it's called "the bloat cure 101." she writes, quote, i've helped deflate thousands of women and get them comfortably back into their skinny jeans. she's a gastroenterologist at georgetown university hospital in washington. she joins us once again at the table. hello. good to see you again. >> great to be here. >> after reading your book, i felt like one big old bloat ball. everything causes bloat, according to this book. or a lot of stuff causes bloat. you call it an epidemic in this country. >> we're seeing a virtual epidemic of bloating because all
8:37 am
basis that conspire to bloat us that we don't know about. >> well, one of the things that struck me, you said even bacon causes bloat. i thought you, norah, at that part. >> bacon does not cause bloat in norah o'donnell. >> but give us some of the highlights about what causes bloat. you had a very wide list of things. >> so let's talk about some of the anatomical differences between man and woman. women have a longer colon than men, about ten centimeters. that might not seem like a lot, but it leads to a lot of twists and turns where gas can get trapped it. makes it harder for the products of digestion to get to the finish line. that's one reason anatomically. the other reason is hormonal. men have higher levels of testosterone, which means a tighter, firmer abdominal wall that holds everything in. we have have to go to the store and buy spanx. >> one of your many other talents, a built-in spanx.

some of the drugs we take can add to bloat. >> these drugs have been in the news a lot with heart problems, kidney disease, and now bloat. acid suppressing drugs work very effectively, which is why they're helpful for heartburn, but they also turn the ph of the stomach from acidic into alkali and turn it from an unfriendly place for gut bacteria to a friendly, hospitable environment for gut bacteria to multiply and overgrow in the stomach. when gut bacteria multiply and overgrow, they bring a lot of gas. >> what is bloat exactly? >> it's excessive gas, air, in the digestive tract. >> also, some anti-depressants cause bloat. >> absolutely. they can slow down movement of things through the digestive tract and lead to a lot of backup. so healthy vegetables like broccoli, kale, cabbage come with a lot of potent cancer-fighting compounds.
8:39 am
indie jestable plant fiber, which is great, but they also have a carbohydrate we can't digest. so that ends up getting fermented by bacteria in the colon. lots of methane and hydrogen gas. >> the solution is when you're eating those vegetables, what? >> add lemon juice to stimulate enzymes. also, cook them with a sea vegetable that you can get at the health food store. >> what's the difference between bloat and belly fat? >> so glad you asked. the first thing is that bloating ebbs and flows. in the morning, you're flat as a pancake. by the end of the day, you're popping out of your pants. there's a natural rhythm. >> you unbutton your pants. >> but there's a simple fool-proof way to tell the difference. it involves a tape measure. take a tape measure and measure your waist, which is actually between the belly button and the end of the rib cage. if you lean to the side, it's where that natural crease is.
8:40 am
you measure in the morning and measure at night over a few days. if you're bloated, there's a lot of variation in that measurement. if it's belly fat, it doesn't change by much. it's really important to know that because there's another important measurement you can do with your tape measure. that is called the weight to height ratio. take a tape measure and measure around the waist here. >> what is it, 19? >> no, no, 27. i'm about 5'7". that's about 67 inches. the waist to height ratio, if that number is more than half, if your waist measurement is more than half your height, that could be a sign that you have something called metabolic syndrome, which is a major risk factor for some serious diseases. cancer, heart disease, stroke. knowing that is what we call the index essential obesity. >> get a tape measure. thank you.
