MidMorning With Aundrea (Part 1) - August 8, 2017
Have areat day.
Usg yo d using your dna to track your nutrution.
We'll take a look at some tests on the market.
And, a wisconsin police officer gives the gift of life.
Plus, the tale of a tree and a truck.
Midmorning starts right now.
A sty ou a study out this week revealed a surprising finding about teenage drivers.
The older the teen, the greater the risk on the road.
Kris van cleave has the story.
Sot / dylan + kvc in car / gopro2 @ 154755 kvc: where is your cell phone when you drive?
Dm: in the glove box out of reach, out of sight.
Kvc: the glove box?
Riding with 18- year-old dylan mullins, it's clear he knows the rules: hands on the wheel, phone out of reach.
But new research out this morning shows that's not the case with many teen drivers.
Kvc: do you feel the pull of the phone?
Dm: yeah, especially when you're in mid conversation before you leave and then you have to say, 'hey, i'm driving now.'
But you can hear it dinging a little bit from there.
The study commisioned by liberty mutual insurance and students against destructive decisions found older teens are more likely to use their phones while driving: 71-percent of high school seniors... more than freshmen , sophomores , or juniors .
About half of seniors say they use navigation and music apps- compared to a little over a third of sophomores.
And 32-percent of seniors admit to snapchating behind the wheel.
Last month, an 18-year-old in california was livestreaming on instagram when she lost control and crashed, killing her 14-year-old sister and injuring another teen.
You didn't think about what the consequences could be.
That's normal for 18- year-olds.
Doctor gene beresin is a psychology professor at harvard medical school.
It may be that the tendency for teens is you start cautious and you get more and more experience and feel more and more confident more confident, if they feel more powerful, they may jump to more risky behavior.
Compounding the problem: many states drop license restrictions on teens-including curfews and limiting the number of passengers - when drivers turn 18.
Antionette mullins says she's not dropping áherá rules.
Am: no, no handling of the phone whatsoever while you're in the car.
Kvc: what happens if they don't follow the rules?
Am: no car.
He loses car privileges.
// dm : if she were to ever find out something happened and i was texting because of it, that'd be it for me and driving.
## while older teens often see themselves as safer drivers than their younger peers, nearly á60- percentá of seniors reported being in crash or a close call.
And parents...this is important...res earchers say teens are following your lead.
So if you're on your phone behind the wheel...you can bet your kid probably is too.
A new type of health test uses your d-n-a to give nutritional advice.
There are several tests on the market, but critics say it is hard to know how accurate they are.
Michelle miller has more.
Every time rebecca castle sat down to eat her favorite food, she says she suffered excruciating abdominal pain.
It's terrible, terrible, like, sharp shooting pain, bloating, distention."
That pain went on for more than two years.
Castle saw multiple doctors... then she took a d-n-a ámetabolic testá... "i was allergi to starch."
"that's mostl root vegetables, corn, peas, sweet potatoes."
Ahmed el- sohemy is the chief science officer at nutrigenomix .
"individua genetic differences can help us understand why some people respond differently from others."
Nutrigenomix says their dna test looks at a person's "4 genetic markers."
They make recommendatio ns based on the patient's genetic profile& pointing out attributes, like: "an elevate risk for low iron"..
"we're talkin about metabolic tests.
They're genetic tests, but they affect the way that you metabolize various substances that you consume."
"dna tests fo diet and exercise just are not validated."
Doctor david agus is a cbs news contributor: "so are any o these tests accurate?
"there ar very few of them that actually have data behind them."
// and t me that's a problem.
You know, you have companies like '23 and me' that were taken off the market for several years because they had to show data with regard to human disease.
Well i think this same thing needs to happen with nutrition and exercise."
"it goe through your iron status,..."
Castle said the test produced more than 30 pages of results about áher bodyá... .
"i think it' worth it.
// "yo don't need your blood taken, you're literally just spitting into a test tube.
You could do it in your sleep."
Which means she can now avoid the foods... that set off her stomach.
Michelle miller, cbs news.
The f-d-a says they support tests that may provide consumers with direct genetic information that can inform health related decisions.
But the agency points out it does not actively regulate these products.
There's no magic bullet for weight loss, but there are foods that can give you an edge in controlling your hunger and thus shedding unwanted pounds.
Kim hutcherson reports.
Sometimes, losing weight isn't a matter of following a strict diet -- but rather, eating foods that work for you, rather than against you.
Here are some foods that offer a satisfying sense of fullness ... and can help keep your appetite in check.
Greek yogurt is thicker, creamier and has more protein than its regular yogurt counterparts -- that protein can keep you feeling full.
Avocados are packed with healthy fats and oleic acid - an omega-nine fatty acid - both of which can be helpful for controlling hunger.
Red chili peppers contain capsaicin.
It's the compound that gives the peppers their heat ... and research suggests it may help curb hunger.
Barley is a natural appetite suppressant.
The grain contains a unique combination of dietary fibers that make it extra filling.
Spinach is a source of thylakoids, the chlorophyll- bearing parts of green leaves.
Studies have indicated that thylakoids may be helfpul in reducing the amount of food we eat.
And finally ... flaxseed is rich in two natural appetite suppressants - omega-three fats and fiber.
Another tip ... try having a small salad or cup of soup before meals.
Both have been associated with increased fullness and decreased calorie intake.
For today's health minute, i'm kim hutcherson football season is right around the corner.
That means many tailgaters and fans at home will be chowing down on chicken wings every sunday.
But right now the price of wings is flying high.
Don champion reports from dallas.
Pkg chicken wings are always a hot item at wing stop.
The aviation themed franchise started in texas in the 90's and has since has taken off with more than 1-thousand restaurants nationwide.
"they're s good" but now the same wings that built this business are biting into the bottom line.
Wingstop ceo charlie morrison says the price his company pays for wings is at an all time high.
"this year i 2017 we've seen a much higher price for chicken wings especially through the summer months."
It's not just wingstop feeling the heat of higher prices.
America's growing appetite for wings is hitting restaurants nationwide.
When buffalo wild wings recently announced a drop in earnings the ceo noted "...traditiona chicken wing costs remain at historically high levels.."
It's because demand is outpacing supply.
There are now several franchises that feature wings... and pizza chains also sell the appetizer.
Many restaurants have been forced to raise menu prices because of higher costs.
Wingstop is in the process of doing the same.
"that's natura in the restaurant business to raise prices as commodity costs increase.
We don't want to raise them too much because we want to keep a great value for our consumers."
Morrison believes chicken wing costs should stabilize soon.
But until then customers can expect to pay a little more.
Don champion, cbs news, dallas.
Wingstop and buffalo wild wings it also offer customers the option of cheaper "boneless wings which are made from chicken breast.
Protect and serve.

Just ahead, some kids get down and dirty with their food.
Heading ifou gw if you grew up helping in the family garden or driving a tractor on the farm, it may amaze you to learn that many kids believe produce comes from - the grocery store.
But in some areas of the country, kids are learning how to farm.
Chip reid explains why.
17:50:15 oo there are a lot of ripe ones here it might look like work, but for these kids, picking bushels of blackberries and ripe tomatoes 17:58:00 this is the elbow there, put your thumb on it and snap it off is the perfect way to spend a summer day -- on the farm.
With new strange creatures 17:55:56 thats a what - a tomato horned worm?!
Chip: what are you going to do with him kids: feed him to the chickens and delightful surprises& 00:47:45 oh we got an egg we got an egg" their harvest soon becomes ... lunch.
17:59:50 we are going to make an awesome tomato and cucumber relish kid: that sounds good!!
That's what bonnie moore loves to hear.
As the culinary director at willowsford farm, she's introducing the kids to this one right in their backyard.
With 300 acres of working farmland and 2,000 acres left for conservation it's one of the largest agrihoods in the country.
Om dla from dallas texas to outside of atlanta georgia even inner city detroit and southern california - they're bringing families back to a more rural life& 07:43:13 why do you think this is a booming idea for how to live.
07:43:20 i think people want to know where their food comes from, i think parents want to know what their kids are eating and i think they want their kids to identify their food they're not just identifying their food.
18:22:13 chip: what's the difference of eating cucumbers that you grew rather than from the store?
18:22:14 nicole: i just feel proud that i grew it, i picked it, and now i get to eat it.
They're owning it.
18:25:31 chip: when you look at your salad what do you think?
18:25:37 rewarding rewarding!!!
Kid: we picked it.
And it's not just about growing veggies 16:50:27 come on they're also managing the land& and no lawnmower is as much fun as a herd of goats.
To the kids deborah dramby is farmer deb -- she's an expert on goats, healthy eating, and the importance of getting outside in nature.
16:57:52 chip: so how important is it to have kids get out here instead of in there doing whatever they do on their devices.
16:58:03 well gosh, remember when you were out of school because it was summer and you were working on a farm.
// and instead of being inside and on a device playing a video game about farming you know whatever exists they can actually come and do it.
For the goats to do their job they have to do theirs -- making sure they are have fresh water and keeping them safe.
17:00:55 chip: so do you like doing this work?
Kids: yeah, totally chip: why because you are doing it for the goats?
Kids: yeah unlike veggies goats give back "you get to hu animals and you get to take care of them and that's really satisfying."
17:07:25 chip: who here loves working with goats kids all raise their hands chip: who here could see being a farmer some day?
Kids: all raise hands bm: this could have been a golf course, but it's not, it is a farm, it is much better.
Chip: why is it better 18:43:11 it is so much more interactive//07:4 4:19 i think they want their families to identify with something that's real.
Real food, real farm melissa miller says her children love being off the phones and video games and on the farm.
14:12:00 mm: it's so exciting, they are seeing where their food's coming from and they are having a healthier lifestyle because of it and i think they will agree it's so fresh girl: every morning i kept saying can i have more blueberries?
Chip: so blueberries taste better when you pick them?
Girl: yeah i think so at the farm they are much fresher chip: ha 14:14:34 chip: this is literally farm to table.
17:45:18 mm: it is farm to table//just the peaceful nature we have stressful lives with work family and friends, but just to drive down the street you have the ahh moment, chip: not quite like green acres, but a little bit along those lines ha something like green acres, but a little bit along those lines acres, but a little bit along those lines ha something like that exactly.
