"i never knew to look it up, never thought, okay, well i am experiencing all of these things maybe i should look up essure. i never thought of it." dougan says she wants other women to know about what can happen. but one university of iowa doctor says most of her patients who have the coils are happy. a cancer center in eastern iowa is joining other centers around the u-s to increase the number of people getting the h-p-v vaccine. h-p-v stands for human papilloma virus. according to the centers for disease control and

"there is the perception that certain groups of children will never be exposed to this virus and the date shows that that's just an incorrect perception and it's relatively new the vaccine, and we think part of our job as cancer professional is to get that word out. " weiner says the best time for kids to get vaccinated is around the age of 11 to 12 years old. he says even with the vaccine, regular screening is still important. the iowa attorney general's

5:16 am
agribusiness report, i'm david geiger. ---- on monday, the iowa caucuses took off and iowa chose it's number one candidates on the republican and democrat side.. ted cruz won the most votes on the republican side for a victory here at just under 28 percent... which came as a disappointment to renewable fuel standard voters.. the iowa renewable fuel association says they had discussions with many of the candidates here in the state. and in the weeks before the caucus.. senator cruz changed his tone on ethanol.. including putting in a positive op-ed into the des moines register. "now he never did embrace the rfs that is true, the renewable fuel standard, but he tried to portray himself as for ethanol, for higher blends, for knocking down the blend wall. just not for the rfs." shaw says 85 percent of voters showed up for pro-rfs candidates.. more than the last caucus. and while cruz won.. his vote total was under 30 percent.. which is less than majority.. only two
5:17 am
with less than 30 percent of the vote. "unusual for an iowa caucus winner to be that low and so i do think that there's no doubt that ted cruz's position in opposition to the rfs with his track record for supporting the subsidies for oil influenced his vote totals. and i absolutely think it cost him votes that he might have otherwise had in iowa if he had a more equitable policy." shaw says the america renewable fuels saw success in moving candidates toward a pro-r-f-s stance.. there were only three at the start of the race.. and after the iowa caucus, there were 12 of 14 candidates behind it. ---- livestock are got a little support yesterday.. and grains aren't moving with the big news of the week.. the u-s dollar. ---- it's been 15 years since the last commercial horticulture survey was sent out.. and it's time for an update... the iowa department of agriculture announced wednesday that the survey is

president obama is set to propose the 10 dollar per barrel tax when he reveals his budget plan next week. he hopes it will reduce carbon emissions and generate more money for mass-transit investment. the tax would be phased in over five years and would apply to both domestic and imported oil. january's jobs report is due out this morning. many expect another solid month of employment gains. job gains could start to slow now that unemployment is at a near- normal five percent. that means fewer qualified job candidates are looking for work. this could also mean more wage growth as employers pay more to attract qualified workers. and mcdonald's latest salad has more calories, fat and salt than a big mac. the premium southwest salad with buttermilk crispy chicken starts with a nutritious base of baby spinach and kale. once you add the chicken, cheese, tortilla strips, black beans, corn and dressing, it comes out to 710 calories. a big mac is 540 calories.
