steve: in fox 5 health news, the cdc confirms several cases of local zika transmission in miami beach. alison: joining us, dr. devi. thank you so much for joining us. it seems like almost every day we hear something new and >> the spread in south beach is concerning. the difference is we knew there was zika in florida and in new york. but we didn't know about the local spread within south beach. the way they found that is they tested people who should test negative for zika, who haven't traveled to latin american areas where it's spreading, who haven't had sex with someone that traveled there. those folks are testing positive and now the cdc is warning people to stay away.
5:47 pm
becoming pregnant or trying should be careful. steve: it gets further and further in our direction. >> exactly. they are expecting cases to spread in other areas, maybe because of the mosquitos traveling with the weather patterns. for people at home right now, let's say you're in new york. i don't think you need to worry. if you have traveled to south beach since july 15th, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. if you're pregnant, it's better to get tested for zika or talk to the docto if you're not pregnant but thinking about getting pregnant, then, you know, talk to the doctor. you may want to wait eight weeks if there's a good chance that you've been infected with zika. it's thought that in a woman's body, the zika may stay around for eight weeks whereas for a man, it can stay in the body for six months. so let's say that you're pregnant but your partner traveled to south beach and got bitten by mosquitos and developed symptoms of zika, like
5:48 pm
months. steve: a lot to keep in mind. alison: it's a lot to think about. should you be scared about going there, not making plans to go to south beach? >> if you're not pregnant or making plans, it's safe to go. and on a positive note, there's some progress being made on the zika front. they figured out which cells carry zika across the placenta, which is a big deal. they can develop drugs to target the cells without damaging other the fetus. and there's progress on the vaccine front as well. alison: the next one is a big one for us. we do this. can cracking your knuckles be good for you? it feels like a relief. steve: i've done it since elementary school. everybody is like stop it. >> i do it, too. i think it's fascinating. patients ask me about this all the time, especially being in pain management or sports
5:49 pm
this is funny. radiologistists want to find out what causes you to make that sound when you crack your knuckles. they used ultrasound to look at the knuckles while people are doing it. it's like shaking a soda bottle. there are gas in the fluids that lubricate the joint and the gasses form bubbles when you do the cracking motion. the smaller bubbles form a bigger bubble. they pop and that's what cau it doesn't cause any damage. it might make you feel more flexible at the time. it doesn't seem -- steve: my mom was you're going to give yourself arthritis. knock it off. >> there's no evidence of that. in older studies, they found it is protective. maybe you might get more flexible. until now, nobody knew what was causing it. radiologists looked on the screen from a different perspective. steve: a dirty habit.
