i'm happy to. >> "good morning america" starts right now. good morning, america. wildfire emergency. massive flames exploding overnight forcing thousands to evacuate their homes across the southwest. more than 500 firefighters battling the blaze as more dangerous wind moves in. and the new concerns about a dangerous storm system barreling across the midwest. crisis at the border. overnight, a caravan of nearly 200 migrants seeking asylum in the u.s. told they can't come in. a desperate situation. we're live on the scene this morning. and president trump now blasting the comedian who targeted his administration at the white house correspondents' dinner. did her jokes about the women on the trump team go too far? an abc news exclusive. the 22-year-old juror taking us inside the deliberations that ended in the conviction of bill
cosby. >> some have said that i made the right decision and some people have said that they still think that he's innocent. >> did "the cosby show" and the me too movement impact his decision? and the words cosby said that he said swung the whole case only on "gma" this morning. ♪ and superhero-sized opening. "avengers: infinity war" soaring into the record books. smashing the competition at the box office. will it be the biggest blockbuster of all time? and is "black panther" the secret weapon? and good morning, america. if you were going to the movies this weekend, likely seeing "avengers." >> a bigger opening than "star wars" and "black panther." it's just getting started.
so hard to get a seat this weekend. >> very hard for a lot of people out there. i'm sure those theaters were sold out. we have more on that ahead. but first, those fires scorching thousands of acres across the southwest, forcing evacuations in arizona. the flames are being fueled by strong winds. and abc's rob marciano is going to start us off with the latest. good morning, rob. >> good morning, michael. sustained at 30. gusting to 50 miles an hour this is what it did yesterday in the hills northeast of phoenix. you see the smoke and flames there. dry conditions and that was causing a fire to grow rapidly overnight. >> driving into, people. >> reporter: this is what residents near payson, arizona, are driving into this morning. dense, black smoke as far as the eye can see. >> it hasn't hit yet. not till you see the aftermath. >> reporter: the so-called tinder fire which started friday blowing up overnight, exploding from 500 acres to 8,000. authorities evacuating 1,000 homes overnight. >> we have food, water, medical
supplies. we have the crates and kennels that we can set up. >> reporter: more than 500 firefighters including seven hot shot crews and several helicopters now battling 50-mile-per-hour winds. dry conditions and difficult terrain. residents say they have been worried about a fire of this magnitude for years. >> this one's not looking good. >> we worried about it for years. you always worry about fire up here. it's just a heartbreak. it's terrible. >> there were structures lost. no word on how many homes have been lost or when residents can return to their homes. the critical fire danger is shifting a little bit to the east. windy again. with that severe weather, this digging trough will cause a major shift in our pattern, not just with dry fire conditions across the southwest but severe weather conditions beginning today across parts of west texas, up in through nebraska, strong winds, some large hail. maybe a tornado or two. things beginning to amp up i think during the day tomorrow. we have an enhanced risk from omaha through kansas.
strong winds, i think wednesday will be the day where we see everything come together for a more sustainable risk from north texas all the way up through kansas city potentially some large tornadoes on wednesday. so a three-day event. michael? >> all right. thank you, rob. i know you'll keep us updated on any changes. robin? now to the crisis at the border. a caravan with more than 100 migrants seeking asylum arriving at the u.s. border with mexico. but told there's no room. our senior national correspondent matt gutman is on the scene there in tijuana with more. good morning, matt. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this is literally the end of the road for these hundreds or so migrants. you can see them camped out here by the dozens against the morning chill. they are literally sleeping up against the border. now, theoretically customs and board e protection officials should have seen them. not a single one of them has been processed.
overnight, the so-called "migrant caravan" finally reaching the u.s. border and clamoring to be let in. [ chanting ] after a grueling month-long slug, 150 or so central american migrants made their way to the san diego crossing. the busiest in the nation. but right on the doorstep into the u.s., they were told entry was blocked. u.s. customs and border protection turning them away because it said the crossing where it initially vets asylum seekers was already at capacity. caravan organizers were skeptical. >> we can build a base in iraq in under a week. we can't process 200 refugees? i don't believe it. >> reporter: so, migrants decided to sleep right outside overnight. the migrants, including children, originated from honduras. el salvador and guatemala and traveled through mexico sometimes by train or bus, they're fleeing violence and persecution. >> you see kids.
you see mothers. you see men like me. we fighting to, you know, for a better future. >> reporter: the group might have been forgotten had president trump not called for the caravan to be stopped. >> are you watching that mess that's going on right now with the caravan coming up? >> reporter: even threatening to shut down the government on saturday because of it. >> we need the wall. and if we don't get border security, we'll have no choice. we'll close down the country, because we need border security. >> reporter: president trump has tweeted that he wants the department of homeland security not to allow the people into the country. but everyone if they're sent to a detention center within the country, they'll have to convince a judge they farce persecution if they go back home. now, organizers tell us, they're willing to wait it out. the question is under these conditions, how long can these
people last? robin? >> matt, thanks so much. now to breaking news from afghanistan, where at least 25 people, including 8 journalists were killed this morning in a double suicide bombing. the first bomber was on a motorbike as rescue workers and journalists rushed to the scene, a second bomber mixed in with the crowd and blew himself up. the islamic state claimed responsibility, the latest in a string of major attacks as america ramps up its military presence again in afghanistan. and we're going to stay overseas for the latest on north korea. kim jong-un pressed for that summit with president trump by appearing to promise an end to his nuclear program in the meeting with the leader of south korea if the u.s. will make peace with north korea. our chief global affairs anchor martha raddatz joins us now with details. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, george. it is the south korean government that says that kim jong-un told them that he would give up those nuclear weapons, weapons close to if not already capable of reaching the united states. kim said he would do that if the u.s. promises not to invade north korea and formally ends the korean war. we also saw those friendly images between the north and
south and the concessions from the north have seemingly come one after another. kim has also vowed to shut down a nuclear test site next month in advance of the summit with president trump. and said he will invite experts and journalists to confirm that. but there have been decades of the promises from north korea in the past. and the new secretary of state, mike pompeo, on "this week," said despite kim's words, the u.s. will need proof of complete verifiable irreversible denuclearization. >> we're going to require those steps that demonstrate the denuclearization is going to be achieved. we're not going to take promises. we're not going to take words. we're going to look for actions and deeds. the president has made it clear we will keep the pressure campaign in place until we achieve that. >> reporter: pompeo was clear about that but what he was not clear about is what the u.s. would do in return in order to achieve that goal.
just saying again the administration, george, has its eyes wide open. >> right, because we've seen these promises as you point out from north korea in the past. meantime, any more details on the timing of this possible summit with president trump and where it might be? >> reporter: well, late may, early june, they say. the president said on friday two or possibly three locations. it's been reported that singapore is likely but the white house has not confirmed anything at this point. and is still doing a lot of diplomatic work leading up to this, george. >> martha raddatz, thanks very much. michael? >> all right, thank you, george. now to all that reaction to the white house correspondents' dinner. president trump blasting the comedian michelle wolf for her speech. she's being accused of crossing a line with personal shots at members of the president's team. our senior white house correspondent cecilia vega has more. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: good morning, michael. you know this, the presidential roast here in this town is tradition. it is a mix of politicians, the journalists who cover them,
throw in a comedian, and it can definitely make for some awkward moments. the problem is, this morning, many in the city say those jokes this year went too far. washington's annual black-tie celebration of the first amendment this morning under fire. in the spotlight, comedian michelle wolf accused of crossing the line. press secretary sarah sanders right there on stage not laughing. >> i actually really like sarah. i think she's very resourceful like she burns facts and then uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye. like, maybe she's born with it. maybe it's lies. >> reporter: in the audience, counselor to the president kellyanne conway, stone-faced. >> all she does is lie. if you don't give her a platform, she has nowhere to lie. it's like that old saying, if a tree falls in the woods, how do we get kellyanne under that tree? i'm not suggesting she gets hurt, just stuck. stuck under a tree. >> reporter: the backlash was fierce.
>> what happened last night was an atrocity. >> last night was over the line. >> reporter: president trump skipped the night once again, weighing in on twitter, calling the night a big, boring bust, saying the so-called "comedian" really bombed. he offered his own counterprogramming instead. in a michigan campaign rally, he vented about everything from democrats to immigration for an unfiltered hour and 15 minutes straight. >> is this better than that phony washington white house correspondents' dinner? is this more fun? >> reporter: and the president is now calling for a major overhaul to the dinner or to even end it altogether. many say that sarah sanders is owed an apology for having to sit there and listen to those jokes while she was on stage. so far from the organizers no apology. the white house correspondents' association, michael, does say the goal of this evening is to celebrate the first amendment and journalism scholarships. and that michelle wolf's routine
was not in the spirit of that. >> thanks, cecilia. something to definitely talk about and the conversation won't stop any time soon. cecilia, thank you very much. robin? >> all right, michael. now to that massive merger that could affect your cell phone plan. t-mobile and sprint finally striking a deal after years of negotiations. the move would leave consumers with just three major cell phone providers. and you know our chief business correspondent rebecca jarvis is all over this. rebecca, the companies say they will lower prices? >> reporter: yeah, this is a bit of a surprise, robin. i spoke to the ceos of both t-mobile and sprint and they tell me this will mean lower prices and broader options. unlike most mergers, they say that they're going to take the savings of the combined companies and give them back to consumers, and, from day one, lower prices. they also say that they'll build out 5g nationwide over the next year and that will add thousands of jobs, plus, they plan to introduce a broadband competitor in rural communities which currently have just one option.
now, this merger, as you mentioned, robin, that's going to consolidate the playing field of major carriers from four to three. verizon, at&t, and t-mobile. and fewer options typically means higher prices. but they're making the argument here that t-mobile and sprint have been the lowest priced options for years and they have really pushed the rest of the industry to offer consumers more options. and they say they'll continue to do so. of course, they're going to need that regulatory approval to get the deal done, robin. >> could we get that in writing? >> reporter: yes, exactly. but you did hear it here on "gma." if they go against their word on "gma," that's a problem. >> you got it, rebecca. thank you. now to the latest on that grandmother accused of murdering her husband and her look-a-ike, then going on the run. newly obtained video shows the moment she was finally captured. abc's victor oquendo is in ft. myers, florida, where she is behind bars now. good morning, victor. >> reporter: good morning, michael. lois riess spent the night right here at county jail.
this grandmother accused of murdering two people is not going anywhere any time soon after a judge denied bond. we're also learning new information. it was revealed in court she might have psychosis and she is not taking her medication. lois riess, the grandmother who eluded authorities for weeks after allegedly killing two people if two states, standing before a judge. >> would you like to be screened for the services of a public defender? >> sure. >> reporter: the 56-year-old wearing an anti-suicide smock listening by phone sunday during her first appearance for a number of charges including murder, grand theft and identity theft. the nationwide manhunt for the alleged gambling addict known to authorities as "losing streak lois" coming to an end ten days ago inside this texas restaurant near the mexican border. this surveillance video showing her capture taken into custody right from her seat at the bar. riess had been on the run since last month accused of shooting her husband david in minnesota before taking off for ft. myers, florida. it was there authorities say she befriended 59-year-old pamela hutchinson allegedly targeting
her because they looked alike. allegedly befriending her before killing her, stealing her car, and heading to texas. she has another hearing in the next few days. she faces a second-degree murder charge in minnesota. she'll stand trial for that once everything wraps up in florida, george. >> thanks very much. we switch gears to that record-breaking weekend at the box office, "avengers: infinity war" blew past the competition. an eye-popping open setting new records at home and overseas. diane macedo here with the details. hey, diane. >> reporter: george, good morning. in the movie, the avengers fight to keep a villain from dominating the universe. at the box office, they're the ones dominating. with more than 20 of marvel's biggest superheroes, the movie blew out the competition domestically and globally. and experts say it's even giving another movie a boost.

>> whole cast happy about that too. >> oh, yeah. >> i had a sneaky feeling this wouldn't be the last avengers movie. >> what was your first clue? >> it's my first clue. diane, thank you so much. and we want to say, take a moment for a quick thank you. a big thank you for some very nice news that we got last night. >> the emmy for outstanding morning program goes to -- this is exciting -- >> both: "good morning america." [ applause ] >> lots of smiles around here this morning when you walked in the door. everybody is so happy but also everybody here is so honored and we are all very, very humbled by this, as well. >> yes, and i wish you could have heard the acceptance speech. sabina who is here, she's one of the many unsung heroes we have here in the "gma" family behind the scenes that you don't get a chance to see. and we do this every day. there's sabina. wanted to make sure you got some face time today.

headlines we're following that matt gutman reported in our first half hour. that crisis unfolding at california's border with mexico where a caravan of migrants are seeking asylum, trying to cross into the u.s. arriving at the border overnight but told there's no room. and take a look at this. you're watching a brazilian surfer break the record for the largest wave. you can barely see him, 80 feet, 80 feet. the record was confirmed over the weekend. it happened in november, but it took some time to confirm that it is, indeed, the record. 80 feet. >> so massive. >> yeah. >> wow. we're going to move on now to our exclusive interview with one of the jurors who convicted bill cosby. 22-year-old harrison snyder sat down with linsey davis and, linsey, he is convinced he made the right decision. >> reporter: that's right, no second-guessing. good morning to you, george. harrison snyder was the youngest of all the deliberating jurors and at 22 years old, he wasn't even alive during the height of cosby's fame. and he also admits he wasn't aware of the me too movement. while many said it came down to
he said/she said, snyder says for him it came down to what cosby said himself. this morning, a stunning revelation that it may have been bill cosby's own words that sealed his fate. what was the evidence that made your sure beyond a reasonable doubt that he was guilty? >> um, i think it was his deposition, really. mr. cosby admitted to giving these quaaludes to women, young women in order to have sex with them. >> reporter: for weeks there was speculation about the outcome. but this morning we hear just what was going on inside the deliberation room during bill cosby's retrial, thanks to juror number one, harrison snyder. but when you entered the room for the first time, were you sure that he was guilty? >> no. >> so what then made the difference for you once you started deliberating? >> hearing everyone's comments about certain pieces of evidence and going through the different counts. >> so you don't feel even now that it was an open and shut case? >> no. >> reporter: the 22-year-old says prior to the trial, he
didn't know much about cosby and knew nothing about the allegations against him. >> i really didn't know a lot. i knew he was an actor. i knew that he did "the cosby show." i never watched "the cosby show." or anything. i'm a little too young for that. >> what did you know about the allegations prior to becoming a juror in the case? >> i didn't know anything. i don't watch the news ever. so i didn't even know what he was on trial for. >> reporter: at cosby's first trial last spring, the jury deliberated for more than 52 hours but was unable to come to a unanimous decision on whether or not cosby drugged and sexually assaulted former temple university employee andrea constand at his pennsylvania home in 2004. when andrea was on the stand, did you believe her? >> yes. >> what about those other five women who testified? >> yeah. >> if you hadn't heard from the other five and you just had her word, would that have mattered to you? >> i don't think so because in the deposition he stated that he gave these drugs to other women. i don't think it really
necessarily mattered that these other five women were here. because he said it himself that he's used drugs for other women. >> you found it to be his words to be the most damning overall? >> yeah. >> reporter: while many in the court of public opinion felt the me too movement loomed large perhaps even helping to sway the jury -- are you well aware of the me too movement? did that have a factor in your decision? >> no, i only found about it after i got home and looked online to see what everything was. i didn't really even know about the me too movement. >> reporter: snyder describes the jury as being all on the same page when arriving at the unanimous guilty verdict. on all three counts. >> some say i made the right decision and some say they still think that he's innocent and i just tell them, if you were there, you would say the same thing. you would say that he's guilty. >> reporter: sitting here today is there any doubt in your mind that you guys came to the right conclusion? >> no, i have no doubt at all.
>> as for inconsistencies in constand's story snyder says that they were explained away by the prosecution's first witness, a sexual assault expert who testified in the reporting delays, inconsistencies in statements and continuing to keep in contact with the perpetrator are all normal behavior for a victim of sexual assault. but, george, he says there was no dissension, no tension at all in that deliberation room. their verdict was clear. >> pretty clear, okay, linsey, thanks very much. let's talk about it now with our chief legal analyst dan abrams. not much comfort, cosby's team can take from this. >> no, defense attorneys like to try and cite what jurors say after the fact usually ineffectively in an appeal. but this provides no fodder for the defense at all. because he is saying it wasn't the five other women. which would be the most controversial issue that was in this case versus the first case that swayed his decision. what i found so interesting is it's a reminder that expert testimony does matter. right. we always like to say these
experts, anyone can buy an expert, both sides. this guy is making it clear that the expert who testified about what it means to be a victim mattered to him. >> that plus cosby's words. >> plus cosby's words but at least it provided context for him where when the question was, well, why didn't she report it quickly? why did it take her a year? why did she keep calling him after the fact? these all questions that came up in the wake of the first trial and this guy is saying, the sexual assault expert put it into context for us, first witness. >> so clearly the case of first impression for this juror. is there anything now that cosby's team can look to to try to win on appeal? >> yeah. the biggest issue, and it's not a frivolous argument, is that the five additional women who testified in this case about what they say cosby did to them shouldn't have been allowed to testify. the argument is, this is what is called pattern and practice. this was his m.o. he did this all the time. that's why the judge allowed it in. doesn't mean that it's still not a controversial decision. that will be the central appeal.
>> dan abrams, thanks very much. >> i was reading some things over the weekend that he being bill cosby may not face jail time, that if you look at the judge letting him out because people thought his bail would be revoked and it wasn't. >> i don't quite buy that. i wasn't surprised that he was released. and i would be very surprised if he didn't serve any time in the context of this case. >> we'll see what happens. coming up, we have new details in the golden state killer case. how investigators used dna to track down the suspect and new questions about how your dna can be used. come on back. i'm shree bose and i'm a medical student. i was fifteen and my grandfather passed away of cancer. i wanted to start doing cancer research. i think science can be an incredible force for good. this windows 10 pc is great. it's really cool to have these 3d visualizations. you can see like the cells membrane. half of science is about convincing the world that what you're working on matters.

we are back now with new details about the suspected golden state killer. joseph deangelo is now behind bars as questions grow about how investigators tracked him down using his dna and that genealogy website. abc's whit johnson is in ventura, california, with the latest details. good morning, whit. >> reporter: robin, good morning and we're learning that dna recovered from a double murder scene here in ventura played a critical role in cracking the cold case. investigators say they used that dna, then plugged it into the genealogy website that ultimately led to a former police officer joseph deangelo. abc news learning this morning accused golden state killer joseph deangelo is on suicide watch, alone in a jail cell after undergoing a psychiatric evaluation.
reported to appear dazed with delayed speech. the 72-year-old entered a sacramento court friday handcuffed to a wheelchair. but retired investigator paul holes, who spent more than two decades searching for the killer and is still consulting on the case, says it's all an act. >> he's a dangerous man. he is not the decrepit individual that you see in the wheelchair at arraignment, he's a very spry 72-year-old physically capable. he has numerous guns registered to him. >> reporter: he says the week before the arrest, deangelo was seen riding a motorcycle at high speeds. he also enjoyed building and flying model airplanes and he went to great lengths to make sure his house blended in. >> he is somebody that is -- he's diligent at putting the effort out to at least maintain a facade. you know, looking like a normal individual. and i believe that it possibly is part of his act. you know, he wanted to blend into this neighborhood and not be perceived as the monster that possibly was living within this house. >> reporter: and this morning,
the method investigators used to find their suspect is being called into question. plugging old crime scene dna of an unknown attacker into the genealogy site ged match and then building extensive family trees. a pool of thousands narrowed down to a handful that investigators say ultimately led to the name joseph deangelo. >> there's just the slippery slope of if you can use people's dna without their consent for law enforcement, it could possibly be overreach by the government. >> reporter: holes says he's the one who first pushed the idea. so what do you say to those critics who argue this is an invasion of privacy, what you did in this case? >> what it is is it's acting as a witness. just like when i go up and i knock on a door and i say, hey, did you see somebody who looked like that? he said, yeah, i saw him running down the street that way. that dna is doing the same thing, but i just don't have to talk to that person. >> reporter: ged match telling abc news, while the database was created for genealogical
research, it is important that ged match participants understand the possible uses of their dna, including identification of relatives that have committed crimes or were victims of crimes. the former auburn police chief now telling abc news that investigator paul holes reached out to him about six weeks ago. the chief explained that deangelo threatened to kill him when he was fired back in the '70s. investigators say that information helped narrow their focus on deangelo in the final days leading to his arrest. robin? >> incredible how it all came together. whit, thank you very much. michael? coming up, the nfl draft pick making history. not letting anything hold him back. and the young girl he's inspired. at walgreens... helping millions of children here at home... and around the world... starts with one person... you.

edwards is among at least six male executives leaving nike. in a statement to abc news, ceo mark parker says, nike is already taking action and will continue to drive change to elevate a culture of inclusion and respect. >> when companies across the country and the world see that this occurred at nike and see that nike is taking positive action my hope is it will be positive effect on other corporations. >> reporter: and since that survey more women and men have come forward. nike is now conducting a comprehensive review of hr making management training mandatory and revising procedures. this is a pretty big fallout from that survey. >> no question. this worked at nike but how risky is this for employees? >> it is absolutely risky. if you're going to come forward with claims like these in the way that they did, it's absolutely risky, but as anyone who's been inside a toxic work environment knows, you have three option, stay and fight, leave, or put your head down and
do the work and a lot of people don't have the option of coming forward. they're afraid of the potential for losing that paycheck. in this current time where especially women have so much power over these companies, purchasing power, $5 trillion to $15 trillion a year in purchasing power the more information that comes out on any company, particular one like nike that deals with consumers, the worst off it is for them so there is some power today in coming forward. >> strength in numbers banding together. >> strength in numbers and documentation is absolutely key here. they documented everything and no matter what you're deciding to do inside of a company, document everything if you're even considering coming forward. >> great advice. rebecca jarvis, thanks very much. over to michael. thank you, george. there is a lot of excitement for the premiere of tonight's big "dancing with the stars" athlete edition and we went behind the scenes to see how the olympians, the pros and the hall of famer are preparing for the competition. abc's adrienne bankert is here and, adrienne, this is a "dancing with the stars" like we've never seen before. >> you can relate. i mean being a star athlete

funk whose new book is brilliant called "breasts: the owners manual" and it covers it all. please welcome back, dr. funk. [ applause ] this is so necessary because you bust a lot of myths and misconceptions because when i was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 i was alarmed when they said, oh, you know, you're always supposed to know your family history. i don't have any, i said. 80% of people diagnosed with breast cancer don't have a family histories of it. >> less than 10% of all breast cancer comes from an inherited genetic mutation. as you know, a solid 80% don't have any relatives with breast cancer. there will always be senseless cancers that happen in someone young or someone who does everything right. but a vast majority of them, it does makes sense and it doesn't come from your family. it comes from the daily choices that women are making that have to do largely with nutrition and lifestyle behavior.
>> so this is what i really appreciate about your book among many things. you bust some of these myths and misconceptions. tell people about some of them. >> i do, i love busting myths with science. you know what, there are enough things to worry about that do cause breast cancer. i'd like to take a load off and let you know what does not cause breast cancer. i've done all the research for you. it's all in the book. you can safely forget about your cell phone. it is the wrong kind of radiation. nonionizing along with your microwave, television and power lines. >> has nothing to do with it. >> deodorant and anti- perspirants. i did all of the research. doesn't matter, birth control pill, tiny little bump in breast cancer but once you go off your birth control, it doesn't matter. fertility drugs don't matter at all. caffeine, coffee, tea, chocolate, totally safe. bras with or without a wire, don't care. >> really, because that was the one that a lot of people were thinking of as well. what are some of the best
practices to -- i mean, there's no way to fully prevent but what increases our chances we will not. >> you can maximally reduce your risk by taking off these boulders that literally tip the scales way towards breast cancer. here's your top four, to get the boulders off eat a whole food plant based diet, legumes, nuts, whole grains. these foods act like phytonutrients and go into your bloodstream to seek and destroy cancer cells. number two, i want you to get to an ideal body weight and stay there for the rest of your life. don't be overweight or obese. number three, exercise. you've got to bust a move like five hours a week. >> bust a move, i like that. >> unless you're super sweaty and can barely breathe then you get 2 1/2 hours a week. limit alcohol no more than one drink a day. those are the biggies but there are some little things, pebbles, they matter and can tip the scales but get the boulders off so some pebbles, for example, are environmental toxicities we
all live with like a barrage of chemicals in our home and work but here are some tips on how to reduce your exposure to toxins. number one, wash your hands. frequently and always before you eat. you are touching things all day long and then eat them. so wash your hands. number two, dust and vacuum. chemicals settle in dust so zip it up. number three, have houseplants. so nasa discovered that some really common like hard to kill easy to maintain plants, spider plants, aloe vera pull toxins from the air in your home. next, exercise. you're just going to sweat it out separately from stool and urine and finally, choose cleaner household and cosmetic product, chemical-free and use essential oils instead of synthetic fragrances. >> we have a question from the audience. molly, do you have a question? >> yes, i am 39 years old and we recently lost a family member and have lost many family members to breast cancer. many of my cousins and other family members are getting
tested. i have not been tested and not sure if i should or shouldn't so wondering what you would recommend. >> well, molly, i'm sorry for your recent loss. i would encourage you to test. the basic rule is, if you have two family members with either breast cancer under the age of 50 or ovarian cancer at any age, consider testing. it's empowering to have the knowledge. >> oh, gosh, well, thank you, molly, and again our heart goes out to you. dr. funk, thank you very much. give us in a line, the bottom line from this book. what do you want for people to get out? >> i want them to eat well, exercise and to surround themselves with people who love and support and encourage them. >> and she is that person, dr. kristi funk. thank you.
