5:44 pm
exposure to something but it doesn't kill us, it figures out how to fight it in the future. that's the problem. it's thinking of it as an antibiotic. with this medication, tamoxifen, it looks like estrogen. the way it fights breast cancer, if you think about breast cancer cells as having a lock like a door and estrogen is the key that turns it on, this is like a key that fits in the lock but doesn't work. it doesn't activate. it blocks estrogen. we don't know how that's related to the superbugs except maybe it ramps up the immune system so your system fights harder. this is preliminary in animals. it's exciting stuff. steve: let's get to our waistlines and erything else. a laser promising to help get rid of stubborn pockets of fat.

these are pictures sent from sculpt sure. tell us how this works. >> the idea is this doesn't work only your whole body. it works on areas that are difficult to treat where you have these pockets of fat. the fda cleared it for use in the flank, your love handles area. but doctors can use it in other areas, perhaps off label, to try to manage it. there are other -- steve: this is my problem area, this belly button nightmare right below here. dari: where the tattoo is. steve: it's right here. it looks like that's what it -- >> it could help with that. you're in the right category of patients. because it's not as helpful for people who are obese. it's helpful for people that are pretty fit. the benefits are it works pretty fast. six to 12 weeks in terms of seeing results. 25 minutes on average for the treatment as opposed to longer when you use other things like freezing the fat.

but i should emphasize the doctor, this is more cosmetic. if you're thinking about losing weight or fat for health purposes, diet and exercise are still the cornerstones. steve: sometimes you get to the point, you've done all at. you just want this gone. dari: he wants to tweak perfection. steve: that's it, dari. of course. you say six to 12 weeks? once a week for six to 12 -- >> to see the results it takes that long. you don't go that often. steve: how much per visit? >> that's the problem. the doctors will probably set the price, but the estimate is it would probably be $1,500 per treatment. because the device costs $200,000. i don't know this is that easy for people to actually do. also, we have to wait to see how it pans out. steve: the price will come down. i'll learn to just wear pullover sweaters and stuff and hide it. dari: spanx. steve: i need male spanx.

that was good. high and low brow. nick: as much as i don't like this area on me either, because i have the same problem, diet and exercise -- dari: i think -- nick: it doesn't go away. no matter what i do. it's there. it's genetics and age, i suppose. dari: have you put the ice cream back and the martinis? nick: maybe. at those prices, i'm willing to keep it. steve: ain't that bad. nick: i'll be willing to keep some of these temperatures. weather should be pretty decent. we have the coldest air or coolest air of the season on the way in the forecast as we head down the road. today, nice. 72. we had sun, clouds, a couple of showers. it will be great for baseball in queens tonight at citi field for the mets and we'll talk about temperatures in the 60s for the game. we'll talk about 60s around here for the next couple of days. 60s north and west of us. buffalo, 62.

5:51 pm
the course of a year. why? >> a lot of that has come from the feedback we've gotten over the years from passengers and drivers. there's a lot of great content on taxi tv, and then there's a lot of feedback we get from people that say they'd like sort of basically a quieter ride. >> reporter: if the pilot program is a success, the taxi tv's will be replaced with a new gps meter system that relies on smartphones or tablets with credit card readers attached. taxi tv's are a relic of the bloomberg administration, phased in in 2006 to generate ad revenue for fleet owners. since then, according to a 2011 survey, they're the no. 2 complaint among riders. >> it should be a great thing for passengers. it will make riding in a taxi more comfortable, which is the no. 1 issue for a lot of people. it will make it safer. >> reporter: the commission plans to vote on the pilot program on thursday. from lower manhattan, jennifer lahmers, fox 5 news. dari: that will be lovely.
