5:44 pm
this is very frightening. a lot of us were suspecting we didn't have all of the information because we've been talking about it for so many months. >> in the beginning, we thought it wouldn't be coming to this country, that zika doesn't harm the people infected, that they might not know. we're learning more. it's alarming when you hear the cdc saying it's scarier than we thought. what they're referring to is we still don't really understand how zika works, how it's affecting the brains of the babies that are being born or how it's causing miscarriages. at least in terms of some promising news, there's a conference coming up the american academy of neurology. they have different theorys as to how it's working. they found in the lab it seems to affect the brain cells, such as shrink them and damage them that way. other studies looking at humans looking to see people who weren't pregnant or people who
5:45 pm
and came to a doctor and got diagnosed, which is only a small minority. some of them developed neurological symptoms, things where the virus attacked myelin, the insulation for the brain and spinal cord. it's similar to what happens in multiple sclerosis. basically there are different parts of the brain the virus might be attacking. it's alarming to think it might attack different parts. it's one step forward in terms of figuring out where could we develop a treatment or where could we develop a vaccine. steve: how far are we on that road? >> that's -- i'm worried -- we were talking about this a moment before. we had a big scare with ebola where it got funding and the whole country was paying attention. now with zika, i think people are -- after ebola came and passed, it affected other countries but not us as much. i'm worried that people may not be paying as much attention to
5:46 pm
dangerous is coming our way, which may not get the funding it needs. steve: they seem to be warning -- sounding the alarms. let's hope that's the deal. >> this is a fascinating story. dari: being married can boost your odds of beating cancer. do tell. do tell. steve: especially for us dopey men. >> this is a new study. it came out looking at data of people married in the past. it's not people who got married today and looking to see if they developed cancer. but it looks like if you are married, you had -- as a male, you had a 30 percent chance of being able to beat the cancer. if you were a woman, about 20 percent. there are two ways of looking at it. makes it seem like being married is protective or makes you worry if you're single, maybe it would be a risk factor. you try to wonder why would that be. at first when i saw it, i thought it was a financial issue, that if you're married,
5:47 pm
maybe you have better insurance. whoever has the better job. but the researchers controlled for that. it's something protective about love and marriage. dari: i was thinking happiness, contentment perhaps. >> you're more optimistic than i was. yeah. you're the one who's probably right. dari: depressed married people. steve: never. >> and love. what happens is they're bonding. there's a hormone called oxytocin that gets released. the love drug. it might lower your stress hormones and help you calm down. it might make a big difference in cancer or heart disease or other different conditions. steve: very interesting. all right. learn something new every day. we appreciate it. dari: this weather today definitely put me in a better mood. steve: i feel i went out earlier and it was nowhere near 60 when i was out. it's been getting better. audrey: it was. the sun broke through the clouds at a certain point.
