5:18 pm
5:19 pm
iowa is known partly as a meat producing state... but now there's concern over the health affects of processed foods... hot dog and bacon lovers -- take note... a new study suggests some meats can cause cancer. dr. kurt straif - iarc, world health organization - :08 - :16 "this was based primarily on strong evidence that consumption of processed meat causes colorectal cancer." the group says there's also evidence to suspect red meat -- including beef, lamb and pork -- likely can cause colorectal cancer, as well. but the doesn't mean eliminate the foods from your diet... experts say those leaner cuts of for health. madelyn fernstrom - nbc news health and nutrition editor - :42 - :52 "it contains abundant need. it's concentrated protein, all the amino acids for good health, and importantly it has vitamin b12 and iron." the north american meat "defies
5:20 pm
common sense". in a statement it says "scientific evidence shows cancer is a complex disease not caused by single foods and that a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle choices are essential to to good health." when it comes to portion control -- guidelines suggest lean meats should be limited to about the size of a deck of cards or the palm of your hand. processed meat refers to anything that's been cured, salted, smoked or fermented to enhance flavor or lengthen shelf life. the nation's leading group of pediatricians is urging lawmakers to raise the legal age to buy cigarettes. the vast majority of adults who smoke started as teenagers. that's one reason the american academy of pediatrics says people should be 21 to buy tobacco. hawaii and new york city have already passed such laws. that includes electronic cigarettes. the group recommends increased restrictions on flavored products that may be appealing to kids. karen wilson, md, mph - american academy of pediatrics "we don't believe that they
5:21 pm
should be marketed in flavors. i do understand that people have said that the flavors make it much more appealing for the adults who are going to try and use them for cessation, but unfortunately we don't have evidence that says that its actually working yet." jeb bush was a very strong governor, probably the strongest governor in the history of the state of florida. he was a young guy and i think there were some folks in the legislature that thought they might be able to run over him. that didn't happen. one tax cut wasn't enough- he had to do more. it wasn't enough to have 15,000 kids with school choice in florida, he wanted to have 100,000 kids. if he didn't like a project, it was going to be vetoed. it didn't matter if you were a republican. it didn't matter if you were his best friend. he said: 'this is where we're going, this is how we're going to reform state government...' every politician comes in talking about making change, and generally there's not much change. but governor bush made a lot of changes. he got the nickname veto corleone. if he saw something in the budget that he thought violated his conservative principles,

5:23 pm
where that doesn't happen. i'm going to do everything i can to make sure every woman in every job gets paid the same... the men who are doing that job. i'm hillary clinton
