"pretty little liars." the cast of e hit show is here live openg up about the big winter premiere tonight. good momma. >> the girls cannot get enou of it. >> no. they are so excited about tonight. ava has b been talking about it for like a week now. >> our house too. this morning, big new headline about multivitamins. do they really live up to their labels? we have some surprising new research coming up. also, if you're one of the millions who shop online for
7:56 am
delivery service is the best value for you and how all the prices stack up, we'll have that coming up. okay, that's coming up. now amy working her way to the desk and she has the morning rundown. >> good morning. the big story, a deadly bombing at one of europe's most popular tourist destinations. at least ten people have been killed after an explosion ripped through an historic area of istanbul, turkey, not far from the iconic blue mosque. most of the victims are foreigners. government officials have identified the suicide bomber as a 28-year-old syrian national. back here at home, hillary clinton is breaking ranks with president obama on immigration. clinton's reaction was at first reserved when the obama administration began rounding up illegal immigrants for deportation. but she came out against the raids last night during a forum in iowa. bernie sanders immediately denounced those raids when they first began. well, donald trump took another jab at hillary clinton last night asking how she could be in such a close race with bernie sanders who isn't even a democrat? trump claimed he, quote, hasn't even started going after
7:57 am
for now trump has his own challenge, though, in iowa where polls show him neck and neck with ted cruz. well, lawyers for bill cosby have filed a motion to dismiss the indecent assault charges against him in pennsylvania. they claim the prosecutor is violating a ten-year-old agreement not to bring criminal charges against cosby if he testifd in the civil case involving the same accuser. cosby is due in court again early next m month. and in medical news, there are new doubts about the effectiveness of multivitamins. a study conducted by consumerlab.com found that one out of three multivitamins failed to live up to the claims on their labels and while some of the supments were lacking in nutritional content, others exceeded the levels tolerable for the body. a new warning from the american heart association. it says drinking just one sugary soft drink each day can add to your belly fat even if it doesn't increase your overall weight. that fat is the most dangerous because it wraps around internal organs and raises the risk of heart attack and stroke.

tv-commercial
7:59 am
task force is really a softening up for recommendations in their 40s. what they're sayaying is f women with average risks, start screen every other year and the age of 74. this is exactly what they said in 2009. the difference here is more a woman's choice in the 40 to 49-year-old age group and shared decision-making between that provider or doctor. decision that's best for her, breast cancer, as well. >> absolutely. frustration that why can't the experts be in agreement? >> absolutely, and i share that frustration as a woman and as a physician, but this is a very complex issue because there are a lot of specialists that need to weigh in here. anthere are not just medical and scientific issues but there are ethical and social and political and economic issues and the goal here is trying to find that sweet spot, robin, between risk and benefit and not just in saving lives but in improving women's quality of life, as well.

8:00 am
coverage and the mammogram -- and this new guideline? this is going to complicate things. >> i think so. only time will tell how that will bear out. i will tell you ironically women who have insurance because i have patients with insurance and without insurance often have less choice in making decisions about whether or not something will be covered. the one issue here is that congress did pass a bill with a rider that extends coveragage through the year 2017. what happens after that, we'll have to wait and see. >> give us your bottom line. >> you owe, i'm a board certified ob/gyn and follow the acog recommendations, start at 40 but what i worry about this term average risk beuse we know the majority of breast cancer is diagnosed in women who were average until they get that phone call. so while it's important to crunch numbers and analyze statistics, there are actual women's lives that i am responsible for and that will always come first for me. >> i know that it will, jen. thank you so much.

partners have seemed to move on. it's just the fans, they really like blake and miranda as a couple, anit's going to take them some time to accept blake and gwen as a couple. >> and no matter what happens this year, we all know that when the drama of heartbreak comes fantastic songs, and blake shelton stts his concert tour nextxt month a gwen tweeting out just a feways ago, #writingasongaboutacowboy. take that. >> reena, good to see you. buying your groceries online and skipping the store is on the rise. sales expected to top more than $13 billion for 2015. with so many companies f fighting for your dollar, even big players like amazon are jumping in the online grocery game. we wanted to see how their prices stack up this morning, and abc's rebecca jarvis has your price check. >> reporter: it's breakfast time at my house, and the deliverie are coming in.
8:09 am
>> reporter: to see how services stack up, we placed orders for the exact same different companies at the exact same time. peapod, freshdirect, amazon fresh, the market leaders and start-up instacart. lisa lee freeman with me to break down our buys. with these sites. >> you can very easily find out who's got the best deals. >> reporter: check it out. on this partrticular d we find four different prices for the same box of cheerios. amazonfresh, $3.54. peapod, , $4.79. instacart 5.49 and freshdirect, $5.99. difference of more than $2 between the lowest and highest price, and for these paper towels, a difference of nearly $4 between thehe lowest d highest price. on our particular shopping day, the prices on most of our
8:10 am
generally the lowest and freshdirect's genenerally th highest. freshdirect told us "our focus is on high-quality fresh food and solutions and we offer approximately 500 grocery deals per week," but with onne grocery shopping you pay for more than just the c cost of t items. >> with amazon you're going to pay a $299 annual membership fee. now, that includes your prime, but you really got to think about whether you're going to use the service enough to make it worthwhile. >> reporter: while the other services don't require a membership like amazon, they do charge delivery fees. lisa also points out with online services, you may not be able to get the in-store sale price. instacart charged us $4.49 for this loaf of bread. but when we checked in the store, the price was 2. $9 instacart told us retailers may offer some promoons only in the store. and others only on instacart. freeman says to save money compare prices to your local
8:11 am
trial of the service. that's what we did with amazonfresh. for "good morning america," rebecca jarvis, abc news, new york. >> and as you can see, we had a delivery. prices and delivery fees vary around the country, so you need to do your homework to make sure it's worth your while. here are a few things to remember. having your grocery list stored online helps you saveime, and since you're not shopping in the store, you won't be making those expensive impulsive buys. that checkout counter -- >> i don't know. pretty impulsive to just click the button. >> i need a candy bar right now. no, i've never ever ever ordered online before because i think it's peaceful to walk through a supermarket. i like looking -- >> peaceful? that's not how i would describe shopping. >> the gender thing. >> i love shopping too but online is pretty convenient. >> you pay for convenience. >> certain items like i dodon't know about -- >> staples like that but meat and vegetables, i sort of want to see them.
8:12 am
>> we move on to a parenting alert about a phenomenon that's called camouflaging. it's where teens try too hard to fit in and they lose themselves in the process. it's a story we firssaw in "teen vogue." take a look. >> why do i even bother telling you anything? >> reporter: sometes teenage girls just need to be heard. you're ruining my life. >> reporter: but this morning, it's what they aren't saying that's getting the attention. camouflaging, as it's known, was coined b by psychogist dr. joann deke and featured in february's issue of "teen vogue." it's when young girls go to extremes changing or downplaying how they express themselves in order to fit in. >> it specifically refs to when young women sort of shed some of their individuality, could be in their looks, behavior, words, actions so that they blend in more with their peers. >> reporter: an issue many teen and tween girls are facing like 12-year-old amanda from pennsylvania. >> i wanted to say something and then i didn't say it becse i
8:13 am
going to judge me. >> reporr: also, 17-year-old mireya from chicag >> i found myself either dumbing myseself down,emotg my intelligence or how i spoke to other people to fit in. >> reporter: and now the two say instead of blending in they're working hard to stand out hopes others will do the same. >> today i'm confident, today i'm brave and just saying those things make you realize that you are confident, that you are brave. >> reporter: so here now with how you can help your teens, vanessa schenck, founder of the tia girls club. and we bh said, vanessa. we did it. it didn't have a name, but i think it's a phenomenon that's beenen going ofor a long time. how can parents tell if their daughters are camouflaging? >> well, camouflaging is exactly what it sounds like, so it's hiding who you are to blend in with those around you. so, if your daughter is doing anything that is out of
8:14 am
is -- >> if she's embarrassed to be smart. >> if she's embarrassed to be smartment if she wears glasses and she walks into a classroom and takes the glasses off because none of her friends are wearing glasses or the friends that she wants to be friends with aren't wearing glasses and she puts them in her pocket and can't see the board. >> that's a minor example but a good thing for parents to keep a watch. >> yes. >> so, what do you want to say to parents and what do you want to say to young girls or, you know, women out of college who still might be doing it? >> you know, everybody does it. to some extent, but it's about keeping your voice alive and keeping your authentic self alive and your self-esteteem high so it's just really about being who you are and being proud of that person. >> yeah, because it's a bad habit. if you start to camouflage then and then how do -- where does the line separate from who i was and who i am? >> well, w when you art t to camouflage you have a loss of self-esteem, and when you have a loss of self-esteem, you feel
8:15 am
happen where, you know, you enter into self-destructive behavior and that can be anything from dating the wrong type of boys to eating disorders to cutting, so it's really important that you keep your self-esteem in a healthy place. >> i'm glad you put a name to it and that we're talking about it. it is really imptant. >> yes. >> we got to just embrace the person that we are. >> yes. >> vanessa, thank you very much. and you can check out the article, teen"teen vogue"'s february issue is on the newsstands right now. sam has a look at the weather. >> hey, laura, we're embrace inging because it's cold out here. from atlanta, all the way to -- am i right, wisconsin? >> yes. >> telme your name. >> judy. >> who do you want to say hi to? >> my husband rick. >> hi, rick. >> and other family in wisconsin. triplets back there watching. >> i know they're inside because it is cold in wisconsin. but let's talk about the west coast riright now. so, l.a., all the way from san diego, surf's up, boys and girls.
