7:50 am
targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know.

8:16 am
>> so describe low dose aspirin therapy. >> so pirin is a 20,000-year-old drug. 81 milligrams of this compound every day reduces the death rate of cancer by 30% and stroke. many of us aren't taking it s showing that people who take it do take it you're going to add 900,000 lives by the year 2036 and 690 billion dollars in health savings. those are big numbers. >> what age should this start? >> anthony, age 50 is where the data is really most pronounced because that is when disease starts to happen, heart disease and cancer. some of the cancer studies started at age 40 where i starred aspirin.

8:19 am
which affects our sleep and drinking more sugary sodas and drinking caffeine, alcohol, all of which affect our sleep and doing less exercise, all of which take time off sleep. so we need to change our whole lifestyle because the goal is productivity, happy, long life. and we can achieve it if we pay attention. >> we all want those things! >> i know! we do! >> we all want it. it's just difficult. >> gayle, aspirin! >> i swear to god i am going to do that. >> dr. david agus, thanks. is a major copyright infringement case. ahead why the doctors and writers were accused of stealing part of the script with a hit broadway musical. you're watching "cbs this morning." this is lulu, our newest dog. mom didn't want another dog. she said it's too much work. lulu's hair just floats.

frankie vallee and the four seasons. they say they copied part of a script by a ghost writer who wrote about one of the founding members. he spoke to an attorney for the show's creators. >> whenever you have two factual works, historical works talking about the same subject matter, you're going to have a lot of similarities. and i think that the jury was focused on the similarities but without really appreciating that the scope of copyright protection is really quite limi significant. jersey boys has grossed more than $2 billion worldwide since its 2005 debut. performances of the show on broadway will close next month. >> music is so great. i love the music. >> i've never seen it. >> you got to go. you got to go, norah. more than 500,000 people are following the world's news on
