should be able to say it. >> right, right.,ig >> it's a very interestingnt debate because certainly hillary can refer to her record and shes says that, you know, with that record, that there are certainln progressive idea that is she has put forth.. but bernie has som examplesxa where he felt that wasn't true.' so we have a little bit thate b sound from last night's town's t hall. let's take a listen. >> but there are other issues is where i think she's just not progressive.ogre i do not know any progressivegre who has a super pac and takes $15 million from wall street.. (applause). >> that's just not progression.r as i mentioned earlier the keyey foreign policy vote of modernod american history was the war ini iraq.. the progressive community wastyw pretty united in saying don'tg n listen to bush. don't go to war. >> you know before ronica, what
had really sort of struck me waw the fact that they were civil to each other like in the other oth debates and now it seems, youeeo know, the tide has changeas chae another little bit because it's' go time right now.go time >> it is. but it is funny because theyse y still really present themselvese as having this civil debate.ate. so even before one of bernie sanders answer where is he wasns very hard on hillary, at first a he said i respect her and the at media wants me to attack her and i don't want to engage in that t and i've never aired a negativev ad, but then he had to come outc and say some tough things.s. but you've got to differentiatea yourself as candidate.an lie say the two of them as a greg seive as these campaigns ca can be i think they managed to kite relatively civil. as civil as it can be, right? ig they're pretty good competitors against each other.ther. >> but another interesting point, hillary really struggless with trustworthiness.rtne that's one of the things that's' going to be a difficult mountaii for her to climb in this election. and you know it's funny it wasfw town hall so they don't know
what the questions are going tog be. they are from the people, lastes night they were from the peoplep of new hampshire since that's the next primary.. but hillary used the questionsns she got to really take the opportunity i think to present e her heart, you know torque putno her heart on her sleeve.le >> which is a tricky thing to do. >> which is have tricky.hi >> achs a woman let's be honestt that could be used against you.u >> if you're too tough peopleeo feel like they can't see youreys heart.het. i thought we saw a different sae side of hillary last night. nig i don't know how the voters will respond to that.resp if they will feel that she'st se more trustworthy, but we pute together a handful of sound of o bites from it that i don't thint are your -- what you wouldou normally expect from hillary clinton so i really think she's trying to -- trying to go aftert that reputation she has as nots being trustworthy and reallynd a work against that. tha so let's take a listen to that. >> i trust the american people.i i trust the people of newne hampshire to see my lifetime of

24-inch waste and she loves thet hour glass look.. she claims that it stays small.a that her waist stays smaller sma than it usually is after she's been wearing these -- we tuckedu a doctor who's not quite soo enthusiastic about these waist trainers. >> that's the question that iesa have. ha from a medical strand point are we doing damage by squeezing upu our organs or our bellies orello whatever it is we're doinge're there? any permanent damage yom can get from this? thi >> reporter: so i think the thit real risk is long-term use of these waist trainers ba what you're doing you're pushing youg organs up and your pelvicc muscles down so you can gerd oro heartburn. you can have damage to yourou esophagus. you can damage your pelvic pel muscles by causing them tos cau weaken.ak we talked to this doctor whoor w really doesn't like these thingg because she says she actuallyyss had lady come in the last weekee who got injured and has sciaticc and back pain now because sheecs was wearing one of thieves waste trainers to zumba class.. regularly and working out with w these which makes it hard to hao breathe and you're not using the muscles properly because you're not getting that core support. t
so she's got some real concernss and says, yes, she understands the aesthetic appeal but, no,utn it's not a good idea to bee wearing unof these reallyll restrictive type corset or wastt trainers. trainers. >> good to know you see the kno celebrities wearing them and everybody wants to have thats t look or do what they're doing.yd good to know the medical, youic know, just to be aware of as ofa well. all right. let's talk about diabetes right now. washington, d.c. is one of ifc.f not the highest rate of diabetet in the country. so is this a new way to fine out if pre disposition thing? what is this new study telegus. teleg >> reporter: so the cdc is is really trying to raise awareness about pre-diabetes.re-dia and pre-diabetes, steve s when you have higher than normalhaor blood sugar but you're not quitq there yet where you have type tp two diabetes or the sugary latel or weight related diabetes rather. so you're sort of on your way. w what they're trying to do is geg americans to realize, hey, you got to to do something about itt now to change your history going forward. and so what they're saying is, that, you know, pre diabetes iss
often tied to being overweight,h being inactive, not eating welll what the key really is iss getting your blood sugar under control now so you're notw soour setting yourself up for then developing diabetes and all thet complications that come witheit that.that because you know we're talkingu' about heart problems, all kinds, of different problems,, blindness, diabetes is not aiaba disease that you want to get ifi you can avoid it. i >> real quick, beth, we're note' really talking about if you show up as somebody who may be atay risk we're not talking aboutg ao somebody that can be reversed medically more like change yourr lifestyle, take this as a warning sign and be a healthieri person so you don't develop it? is that the gist of it?f >> reporter: i would say theou y gist of it stay on top of your r blood should you garr so do youd care that with lifestylewith changes, by getting healthier,tt but you can also if you really l at risk for type two diabetes,s, your doctor may prescribe ascri medication called met for minutn that can help maybe head off and get your blood sugar underug u control and head off the the developing of diabetes. so you want to do what you can
