Mark: TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH," THE PRESIDENT

RELEASES HIS PLAN FOR THE

BUDGET.

WHY SOME LAWMAKERS ARE

ALREADY CRITICIZING IT.

Wendy: PLUS, THE STORY

OF TWO WOMEN IMPRISONED IN

IRAN, ALL BECAUSE OF THEIR

FAITH.

Mark: AND WE'LL SHOW

YOU THE SILENT KILLER THAT

COULD BE BEHIND EVERYTHING

FROM SKIN WRINKLES TO HEART

ATTACKS.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT

ON "NEWSWATCH."

GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE, I'M

MARK MARTIN.

Wendy: AND I'M WENDY

GRIFFITH.

THE PRESIDENT WAS SUPPOSED

TO SUBMIT THIS BUDGET TO

CONGRESS THE FIRST WEEK IN

FEBRUARY.

INSTEAD, HE SUBMITTED IT

TODAY, MORE THAN TWO MONTHS

LATE.

Mark: BUT SOME

LAWMAKERS HAVE A HARD TIME

THINKING ABOUT SPENDING MORE

TAXPAYER DOLLARS WHEN SO

MUCH IS ALREADY BEING

WASTED.

WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT

JENNIFER WISHON EXPLAINS.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT'S POLITICAL ALLIES

AND ENEMIES NOW HAVE

SOMETHING IN COMMON: THEY'RE

NOT FANS OF HIS 2014

BUDGET.

WHITE HOUSE OFFICIALS SAY

IT'S PROOF OF MR. OBAMA'S

WILLINGNESS TO COMPROMISE

WITH CONGRESS.

President Obama: AND I

DON'T BELIEVE THAT ALL OF

THESE IDEAS ARE OPTIMAL, BUT

I'M WILLING TO EXCEPT THEM

AS PART OF A COMPROMISE.

IF, AND ONLY IF, THEY

CONTAIN PROTECTIONS FOR THE

MOST VULNERABLE AMERICANS.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT'S SPENDING PLAN

PUSHES MONEY INTO PROJECTS

LIKE BUILDING ROADS AND

BRIDGES, SCIENTIFIC

RESEARCH, AND EDUCATION.

THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS THE

BUDGET ALSO CUTS THE DEFICIT

BY NEARLY $2 TRILLION OVER

THE NEXT 10 YEARS.

President Obama: BUT IF

WE'RE SERIOUS ABOUT DEFICIT

REDUCTION, THEN THESE

REFORMS HAVE TO GO

HAND-IN-HAND WITH REFORMING

OUR TAX CODE, TO MAKE IT

MORE SIMPLE AND MORE FAIR SO

THE WEALTHIEST INDIVIDUALS

AND BIGGEST CORPORATIONS

CANNOT KEEP TAKING ADVANTAGE

OF LOOPHOLES AND DEDUCTIONS

THAT MOST AMERICANS DON'T

GET.

Reporter: TO ENTICE

REPUBLICANS TO CONSIDER

RAISING TAXES ON TOP

EARNERS, THE PRESIDENT'S

BUDGET INCLUDES CUTS TO

ENTITLEMENT SPENDING ON

MEDICARE.

President Obama: WHEN

IT COMES TO DEFICIT

REDUCTION, I HAVE ALREADY

MET REPUBLICANS MORE THAN

HALF WAY.

SO IN THE COMING DAYS AND

WEEKS, I HOPE THE

REPUBLICANS WILL COME

FORWARD AND DEMONSTRATE THAT

THEY'RE REALLY AS SERIOUS

ABOUT THE DEFICITS DEBT AS

THEY CLAIM TO BE.

Reporter: FOR SOME

LAWMAKERS, IT IS HARD TO

TAKE ANY SPENDING PLAN, AND

CERTAINLY TAX INCREASES,

SERIOUSLY WHEN SO MANY TAX

DOLLARS, TENS OF BILLIONS OF

THEM, ARE BEING WASTED ON

BUREAUCRATIC

INEFFICIENCIES.

FOR EXAMPLE, ON MEDICAID

ALONE, THE GOVERNMENT WASTES

BILLIONS OF DOLLARS A YEAR

BY SIMPLY PAYING TOO MUCH

FOR SERVICES.

AND SINCE 2002, THE

DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE HAS

GONE FROM HAVING TWO

CAMOUFLAGE UNIFORMS TO

SEVEN.

THAT COSTS TENS OF MILLIONS

MORE, AND ALSO MAKES IT MORE

DIFFICULT FOR SERVICE

MEMBERS TO IDENTIFY ONE

ANOTHER IN COMBAT.

IT'S ONE OF DOZENS OF

RECOMMENDATIONS OFFERED BY

THE GOVERNMENT

ACCOUNTABILITY OFFICE TO CUT

BACK GOVERNMENT WASTE.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE: THE OFFICE

FOUND THAT LAST YEAR THERE

WERE 700 GOVERNMENT

INITIATIVES TO DO THE SAME

THING, PROMOTE RENEWABLE

ENERGY.

THE HARD-WORKING AMERICAN

TAXPAYERS HAVE A HARD ENOUGH

TIME PAYING FOR SOMETHING

ONCE, BUT PAYING FOR IT

TWICE IS REALLY A PROBLEM.

Reporter: BUT UNTIL

CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT

ACT TO CUT THAT WASTE,

TAXPAYERS WILL KEEP RIGHT ON

PAYING FOR IT.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Wendy: PHIL CIRPIN IS

THE PRESIDENT OF AMERICAN

COMMITMENT AND JOINS US FOR

MORE.

PHIL, THE WHITE HOUSE CALLS

THE PRESIDENT'S PLAN A

COMPROMISE.

DO YOU SEE IT THAT WAY?

WELL, LOOK, THE HOUSE

PASSED THE BUDGET OF $

$3.5 TRILLION, AND THE

PRESIDENT CAME IN

$60 BILLION ABOVE THE

SENATE.

SO IF YOU'RE SPENDING

SIGNIFICANTLY MORE THAN

EITHER BUDGET, I DON'T THINK

YOU'RE A COMPROMISE.

I THINK YOU'RE TO THE FAR

LEFT OF PRETTY MUCH EVERYONE

ELSE IN THE BUDGET

DISCUSSION, AND THAT'S WHERE

THE PRESIDENT STAKED OUT HIS

GROUND.

Wendy: WELL, THE PLAN

CALLS FOR SOME TAX HIKES.

DIDN'T THE PRESIDENT ALREADY

GET THE TAX INCREASES HE

WANTED AS PART OF THE FISCAL

CLIFF DEAL BACK IN JANUARY?

HE HAS HAD TWO PRETTY

HUGE ROUNDS OF TAX HIKES,

WHICH ARE HITTING THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE NOW.

HE HAD THE OBAMACARE, A

TRILLION DOLLARS, AND THE

FISCAL CLIFF OF

$600 BILLION, AND THIS

BUDGET CALLS FOR ANOTHER

TRILLION DOLLARS IN

ADDITIONAL TAX HIKES ON TOP

OF THAT.

Wendy: WILL REPUBLICANS

ALLOW MORE TAX HIKES?

I DON'T THINK SO.

I THINK THE TAX HIKES WILL

BE DEAD ON ARRIVAL IN THE

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

I WOULD POINT OUT A LOT OF

THE TAX HIKES ARE NOT ON THE

RICH, DESPITE THE

PRESIDENT'S PROMISE TO ONLY

TAX THE RICH.

FOREMOST AMONG THEM IS THE

CIGARETTE INCREASE.

AND I CAN ASSURE YOU THE

PEOPLE WHO SMOKE CIGARETTES

ARE NOT ALL WELL-OFF.

Wendy: THIS BUDGET DOES

CALL FOR SOME ENTITLEMENT

REFORM.

IS IT ENOUGH?

WELL, IN MY OPINION, IT

IS THE WRONG KIND OF

ENTITLEMENT REFORM.

IT IS THE KIND THAT ACTUALLY

WILL HURT BENEFICIARIES ON

THESE PROGRAMS, INCLUDING

CURRENT RETIREES.

HE HAS A CUT TO THE COST OF

LIVING ADJUSTMENT, SO PEOPLE

WILL SEE A SMALLER INCREASE

IN THEIR BENEFIT YEAR TO

YEAR.

AND THE CUTS IN MEDICARE

WILL GREATLY DECREASE

DEVELOPMENT INTO NEW DRUGS

BECAUSE HE DIMINISHES THE

AMOUNT THE PHARMACIES ARE

RECEIVING.

WE NEED TO BE MOVING TO MORE

INDIVIDUAL CHOICE AND

COMPETITION, AND HE GOES IN

THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION.

Wendy: PHIL, MOVING

FORWARD, WHAT DO YOU THINK

IS KEY FOR THE LAWMAKERS TO

REDUCE THE COUNTRY'S DEFICIT

AND REIN IN SOME SPENDING?

WELL, YOU CAN'T HAVE

BUDGETS THAT INCREASE

SPENDING WHEN YOU'RE TALKING

ABOUT DECREASING SPENDING.

THE PRESIDENT CALLS FOR

$150 BILLION MORE IN NEW

SPENDING.

THEY NEED TO GET RID OF THE

WASTE AND ABUSE.

THE G.A.O. REPORT THAT YOU

TALKED ABOUT, THAT WE JUST

SAW, WOULD BE A GREAT PLACE

TO START WHERE THERE IS

OUTRIGHT WASTE AND

UNNECESSARY PROGRAMS.

WE HAVE TO START TERMINATING

SOME OF THOSE BEFORE WE

THINK ABOUT STARTING NEW

PROGRAMS.

Wendy: SOUNDS LIKE THEY

NEED TO GIVE YOU A CALL,

PHIL.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR

INSIGHTS.

Mark: DEMOCRATIC

SENATOR JOE MANSION AND

REPUBLICAN PAT TUMY

ANNOUNCED THEIR BIPARTISAN

DEAL TO EXPAND BACKGROUND

CHECKS.

IT AIMS TO KEEP FIREARMS

FROM CRIMINALS AND THE

MENTALLY ILL.

IT COMES ONE DAY AFTER THE

RELATIVES OF THE VICTIMS OF

NEWTOWN CONNECTICUT PLEADED

WITH LAWMAKERS TO FIND

COMMON GROUND AND ACT.

WE ASKED THEM TO THINK

ABOUT IF THEY LOST THEIR

SISTER, BROTHER, MOTHER,

DAUGHTER, FATHER, WOULD THEY

ALSO FEEL THE SAME WAY.

I THINK THAT MAKES THEM

THINK, SOMETHING HAS TO BE

DONE.

THE COMMON GROUND RESTS

ON A SIMPLE PROPOSITION, AND

THAT IS THAT CRIMINALS AND

THE DANGEROUSLY MENTALLY ILL

SHOULDN'T HAVE GUNS.

Mark: THE NATIONAL

RIFLE ASSOCIATION RESPONDED

TO THE DEAL SAYING,

"EXPANDING BACKGROUND CHECKS

AT GUN SHOWS WILL NOT

PREVENT THE NEXT SHOOTING,

WILL NOT SOLVE VIOLENT

CRIME, AND WILL NOT KEEP OUR

KIDS SAFE IN SCHOOL."

Wendy: VIRGINIA

CONGRESSMAN FRANK WOLF IS

CALLING ON PRESIDENT OBAMA

TO SPEAK UP FOR EGYPT'S

PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS.

HE SAYS THE PRESIDENT SHOULD

FORCE A TAX ON COPTIC

BELIEVERS.

AN ANGRY MOB THROUGH

FIREBOMBS AN AT CHRISTIANS,

LEAVING TWO CHRISTIANS

DEAD.

HE SAYS CHRISTIANS IN EGYPT

ARE LIVING IN FEAR, AND MANY

ARE FLEEING THE COUNTRY.

Mark: THE STORY OF

IMPRISONED AMERICAN PASTOR

SAEED ABEDINI IS FOCUSING

ATTENTION ON THE TREATMENT

OF CHRISTIANS IN IRAN.

NOW TWO IRANIAN WOMEN ARE

TELLING THEIR STORY OF

PERSECUTION.

JOHN WAGGI EXPLAINS.

GOOD AFTERNOON,

EVERYBODY.

Reporter: THEY WERE

RAISED MUSLIM IN IRAN,

CONVERTED TO CHRISTIAN, AND

STUDIED THEOLOGY TOGETHER IN

TURKEY.

MISRA SAID SHE HAD DREAMS

AND VISIONS ABOUT JESUS.

I MET JESUS IN FRONT OF

MYSELF.

HE WAS STANDING NEXT TO A

LARGE STONE, WHICH WAS

COVERED WITH SHINING GOLD.

Reporter: BUT IN 2009,

SHE AND HER FRIEND, MARIAM

OSTEMPOOR, WAS ARRESTED FOR

SHARING THEIR FAITH.

THEY'RE AUTHORS OF A NEW

BOOK CALLED "CAPTIVE IN

IRAN," AND THEY TOLD THEIR

STORY THIS WEEK IN

WASHINGTON.

GOD GAVE US THIS VISION

TO DISTRIBUTE THE BIBLE

AMONG IRANIAN PEOPLE, AND WE

ARE STRIBTIN DISTRIBUTING

ABOUT 20,000 NEW TESTAMENTS

IN IRAN AND TWO OTHER

CITIES.

AND WE HAD TWO HOUSE

CHURCHES, AND ONE WAS FOR

PROSTITUTES, AND THE OTHER

FOR YOUNG PEOPLE IN OUR OWN

APARTMENT.

Reporter: WHEN IRANIAN

AUTHORITIES ARRESTED THEM,

THEY WERE INTERROGATED FOR

AN ENTIRE DAY.

THEY SENT US TO A

BASEMENT.

THERE WAS A DIRTY AND DARK

CELL IN THE BASEMENT.

AND THEY THREATENED US TO

PHYSICAL TORTURE.

THEY SAID YOU NEED TO GIVE

US ALL OF THE INFORMATION

THAT WE NEED OTHERWISE WE'LL

BEAT YOU.

Reporter: THE WOMEN

SAID THE GUARDS DIDN'T

PHYSICALLY TORTURE THEM, BUT

THEY WERE SENT TO IRAN'S

INFAMOUS EVAN PRISON WHERE

SAEED ABEDINI IS BEING HELD

AND TORTURED.

WE WERE INTIMIDATED BY

INVESTIGATORS, AND THEY

THREATENED US TO

EXECUTIONS.

Reporter: THE TWO WOMEN

SAY OFFICIALS THREATENED AT

HANGING WITH TRIALS.

THEY WERE EVENTUALLY

RELEASED AFTER CHRISTIANS

AROUND THE WORLD PUBLICIZED

THEIR CASE.

WE BELIEVE THAT THE FIRST

REASON WE ARE HERE TODAY AND

WE ARE FREE IS IT IS GOD'S

GRACE AND GOD'S WILL.

AND THE SECOND REASON IS

SUPPORT OF ALL CHRISTIANS

FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

Reporter: THE TWO ARE

URGING BELIEVERS TO WRITE

LETTERS TO IRANIANS IN

PRISON FOR THEIR FAITH.

JOHN WAGGI, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: COMING UP, AS

SNOW FALLS IN THE MIDWEST,

SOME ARE RAISING NEW

QUESTIONS OVER GLOBAL

WARMING.

Wendy: ONCE AGAIN, A

BIG WINTER STORM IS HITTING

THE UPPER MIDWEST, BRINGING

SOME EXTREMELY COLD

TEMPERATURES WITH IT.

Mark: YOU MAY WONDER

WHY THIS YEAR'S WINTER SEEMS

SO LONG IF WE'RE FACING

GLOBAL WARMING.

THE ANSWER IS SCIENCE SHOWS

THAT THE GLOBE HAS NOT BE

WARMING IN RECENT YEARS.

GARY LANE EXPLAINS.

Reporter: THE CALENDAR

MAY SAY IT IS SPRING, BUT A

MAJOR WINTER-LIKE SNOWSTORM

IS WREAKING HAVOC ON

AMERICANS FROM THE ROCKIES

TO THE UPPER PLAINS.

13 STATES ARE UNDER A

STORM-WATCH OR WARNING.

NINE INCHES OF SNOW FELL ON

DENVER, WHILE NEBRASKA AND

THE DAKOTAS EXPECTED AS MUCH

AS TWO FEET.

POWERFUL WINDS RIPPED THE

ROOF OFF THIS

HARLEY-DAVIDSON STORE IN

COLORADO, AND DERAILED A

TRAIN OFF ITS TRACKS IN

NEBRASKA.

THICK ICE WAS THE PROBLEM IN

SIOUX FALLS.

CAUSING MANY TREES TO FALL

ON HOUSES.

I THOUGHT I HEARD A VERY

LOUD THUNDER CLAP, AND I

THOUGHT I BETTER GOITO THERE

AND SEE WHAT WAS GOING ON.

AND MY REACTION WAS, OH, MY

GOD.

Reporter: AND THE TREE

THAT CRASHED THROUGH THEIR

HOUSE ALSO DAMAGED THEIR

CAR.

AND SOME SCIENTISTS ARE

WONDERING WHAT IS HAPPENING

WITH THE WEATHER?

ARE WE REALLY EXPERIENCING

GLOBAL WARMING.

AIR TEMPERATURES AT THE

EARTH'S SURFACE HAVE NOT

SOARED.

100BILLION TONS OF CARBON

WERE ADDED TO THE ATMOSPHERE

DURING THE PERIOD 2000 TO

2010, THAT'S ONE FOURTH OF

ALL MAN-CREATED CO2s PUT

THERE.

THE TEMPERATURE HAS REMAINED

FLAT FOR THE PAST DECADE.

WHILE SOME BELIEVE THOSE

STATISTICS BELIEVE THAT

MANMADE CLIMATE CHANGE ISN'T

AS BAD AS PREVIOUSLY FEARED,

BUT THE CLIMATE MAGAZINE

SAYS GLOBAL WARMING IS STILL

HAPPENING.

BUT SOME SKEPTICS REMAIN

UNCONVINCED, INCLUDING SOME

OF THE AMERICANS WHO ARE

DIGGING OUT FROM THIS WEEK'S

SNOWSTORM.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Mark: WE ARE JOINED BY

JOE.

IT IS APRIL, AND WE ARE

SEEING A FAIRLY GOOD

SNOWSTORM, DESPITE ALL OF

THE TALK OF GLOBAL WARMING.

HOW IS CLIMATE CHANGE

AFFECTING ALL OF THE

TEMPERATURES?

THERE ARE ALWAYS

FLUCTUATIONS BACK AND

FORTH.

THIS IS A BIG HOAX, IN MY

OPINION.

THE MORE I STUDY IT, THE

MORE I SAID, WHAT ARE WE

ARGUING OVER?

THIS IS WHAT NATURE DOES.

WHEN SOMEBODY SAYS TO ME

CLIMATE CHANGE, IT IS

REDUNDANT.

THE CLIMATE IS ALWAYS

SHIFTING BACK AND FORTH

BECAUSE OF THE NATURE.

LIKE AT THE DYNAMICS, AND

YOU FIND THIS IS WHAT SHOULD

HAPPEN.

Mark: JOE, BETWEEN THE

BIG SNOWSTORMS AND BIG

SYSTEMS, LIKE HURRICANE

SANDY, IT HAS BEEN A WILD

YEAR WEATHER-WISE.

IS THAT A TREND THAT WILL

CONTINUE THIS YEAR?

I DON'T AGREE WITH THAT.

IN THE 1950s, EIGHT MAJOR

HURRICANES RAN THE EASTERN

SEABOARD, CATEGORY 3 OR

GREATER.

FROM SOUTH CAROLINA

NORTHWARD, OKAY?

SIX HURRICANES HIT IN A

PERIOD OF TWO YEARS IN NORTH

CAROLINA.

WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND THIS,

AND WHEN YOU GO BACK AND

LOOK AT THE PAST, YOU DON'T

HAVE A HOUSE WITHOUT A

FOUNDATION.

WHY WOULD YOU BELIEVE

SOMETHING WITHOUT ACTUALLY

GOING BACK AND RESEARCHING

WHAT HAPPENED.

THE PACIFIC IS TURNING

COLDER, THE ATLANTIC IS

WARM.

IT HAPPENED IN THE 1950S.

YOU'RE SEEING THE SAME

WEATHER IN THE FAR EAST.

WE HAVE HURRICANE THREATS,

AND THEN WE'LL GO BACK TO

THE '60s AND '70s.

THIS IS A NATURAL CYCLE.

Mark: WELL, WEATHER

BELL HAS JUST RELEASED ITS

HURRICANE SEASON FORECAST

THIS YEAR, WHAT CAN WE

EXPECT?

LET'S REMEMBER WHAT

HAPPENED LAST YEAR, WE HAD A

LOT OF ACTIVITY.

WE SAID A FAST START AND A

BIG ENDING IN CLOSE TO THE

UNITED STATES.

BUT THE AREAS FROM AFRICAN,

ALL THE WAY INTO THE

TROPICS, NOT MUCH HAPPENED

UNTIL SANDY.

ONE STORM CAME OUT OF THE

DEEP TROPICS LAST YEAR.

THIS YEAR YOU'LL SEE A LOT

MORE STORMS COMING OFF

AFRICA.

AND FOR THOSE OF US WHO LIVE

ON THE EASTERN SEABOARD,

PLEASE GO AND LOOK AT THE

CHARTS OF THE 1950S, AND

YOU'LL UNDERSTAND WHY THE

PAST MAY BE THE FORECAST FOR

THE FUTURE.

Mark: JOE BISARDI,

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME,

SIR.

WE APPRECIATE IT.

AND ENJOY THE WEATHER.

IT'S THE ONLY WEATHER YOU'VE

GOT.

Mark: ALL RIGHT.

THANK YOU, JOE.

Wendy: UP NEXT, THE

PROBLEM WITH INFLAMMATION

AND WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP

CONTROL THIS HEALTH ISSUE.

Wendy: THE MORE DOCTORS

LEARN ABOUT IMFLAMMATION,

THE MORE THEY REALIZE HOW

DESTRUCTIVE IT IS.

Mark: BUT THERE IS GOOD

NEWS, YOU CAN REDUCE THE

INFLAMMATION INSIDE YOUR

BODY BY CONTROLLING WHAT YOU

EAT.

LORI JOHNSON HAS MORE.

Reporter: NO MATTER

WHAT TYPE OF HEALTH PROBLEM

YOU'RE FACING, CHANCES ARE

IT BEGAN WITH INFLAMMATION.

THIS INTERNAL IRRITATION

CAUSES OUR WHOLE BODY TO

BREAK DOWN.

WHETHER YOU HAVE A

WRINKLE IN YOUR SKIN, CAUSED

BY AN ARTERY BEING INFLAMED,

OR A WRINKLE IN YOUR HEART,

A HEART ATTACK, OR

IMPOTENCE, IT IS ALL THE

SAME PROCESS.

IT IS ALL CAUSED WITH THAT

INFLAMMATION.

Reporter: THIS DOCTOR

SAYS IMFLAMMATION IS THE

SILENT KILLER THAT AS

ALLUDED THE MEDICAL

COMMUNITY FOR YEARS.

IT IS ONLY RECENTLY THAT

WE'VE UNDERSTOOD THAT IT HAS

A ROLE, AND ONLY RECENTLY,

THAT IT HAS A REALLY

IMPORTANT OR PROMINENT ROLE

IN CAUSING DISEASES SUCH AS

CANCER, OR IN CAUSING

DISEASES SUCH AS HEART

ATTACKS AND STROKES, OR

CAUSING INFECTIOUS DISEASES

GETTING OUT OF CONTROL THAT

WE NOW HAVE.

Reporter: DOCTORS KNOW

FOR SURE THAT INFLAMMATION

CAUSES ALL KINDS OF

ILLNESS.

BUT WHAT CAUSES

IMFLAMMATION?

MOSTLY AN UNHEALTHY DIET.

ONE THAT INCLUDES SUGARY

DRINKS, SWEET FOOD, AND

REFINED CARBOHYDRATES, SUCH

AS WHITE BREAD, PASTA, AND

RICE.

ALSO HYDROGENATED OILS, ALSO

KNOWN AS TRANS-FATS, FOUND

IN PACKAGED FOODS, FAST

FOODS, MARGARINE,

SHORTENING, AND MOST PEANUT

BUTTER.

AND THE THIRD INFLAMMATORY

GROUP IS OMEGA-6 FATS.

IT CAUSES YOUR ARTERIES

TO GET INFLAMED, CAUSES YOUR

IMMUNE SYSTEM TO GET

INFLAMED, AND DECREASES YOUR

ABILITY TO FIGHT INFECTIONS,

DECREASES YOUR ABILITY TO

FIND CANCER CELLS AND GET

RID OF THEM BEFORE THEY

CAUSE CANCER, AND INCREASES

INFLAMMATION AND

ARTHEROSCLEROSIS IN YOUR

ARTERIES.

THAT IS THE OMEGA-6s.

Reporter:

UNFORTUNATELY, OMEGA-6 FATS

ARE IN EVERYWHERE.

WE COOK AND BAKE WITH THEM.

THEY'RE IN PACKAGED FOOD AND

RESTAURANT FOOD AND FAST

FOODS.

BUT IF YOU KNOW HOW TO SPOT

THEM, YOU CAN AVOID THEM.

OMEGA-6 FATS ARE VEGETABLE

OILS, SUCH AS SOYBEAN OIL

AND CORN OIL, BUT ALSO

PEANUT OIL, GRAPE SEED OIL,

COTTON SEED OIL, SAFFLOWER

AND SUNFLOWER OILS.

SO EVEN THOUGH A CERTAIN

FOOD MAY CONTAIN ZERO

DANGEROUS TRANS-FATS, IT MAY

STILL BE A BAD CHOICE

BECAUSE IT IS LOADED WITH IN

FLA INFLAMMATORY OMEGA-6

FATS.

A GOOD EXAMPLE OF THIS IS

STORE BOUGHT SALAD DRESSING

AND MAYONNAISE.

OMEGA-6 FATS ARE TECHNICALLY

OKAY AS LONG AS YOU EAT

ABOUT THE SAME AMOUNT OF

OMEGA-3 FATS.

THE PROBLEM IS MOST

AMERICANS EAT 25 TIMES MORE

OMEGA-6s THAN OMEGA-3s,

AND THAT IMBALANCE CAUSES

MASSIVE INFLAMMATION.

OMEGA-3 FATS MOSTLY COME

FROM SEAFOOD.

THE RATIO OF OMEGA-6 TO

OMEGA-3 IS IMPORTANT.

THE HIGHER THE RATIO, THE

MORE OMEGA-6, OR THE LESS

OMEGA-3, THE MORE

INFLAMMATION.

Reporter: THERE ARE

ONLY A FEW SOURCES OF

OMEGA-3 FATS.

CERTAIN TYPES OF FISH, OR

FISH OIL CAPSULES ARE THE

BEST.

OTHER, LESS POTENT SOURCES

ARE WALNUTS, GROUND

FLAXSEED, DARK, GREEN, LEAFY

VEGETABLES, AND EGGS

FORTIFIED WITH OMEGA-3s.

AND ALSO GRASS-FED MEAT IS

HIGHER IN OMEGA-3s THAN

GRAIN FED.

OLIVE OIL IS A GREAT WAY TO

REDUCE INFLAMMATION, EVEN

THOUGH IT IS NOT TECHNICALLY

AN OMEGA-3, BUT RATHER ITS

COUSIN, OMEGA-9.

OMEGA-3, OMEGA-7,

OMEGA-9 -- WE DON'T KNOW WHY

THE ODDNESS IS GOOD, BUT

THAT ODDNESS MEANS THAT IT

DECREASES INFLAMMATION.

Reporter: BUT BE

CAREFUL NOT TO GET OLIVE OIL

TOO HOT.

WHAT HAPPENS WITH ALL OF

THE OILS, ONCE YOU GET ABOVE

THEIR SMOKE POINT, IS YOU

DENATURE THEM.

THAT IS, YOU CHANGE THEIR

CHARACTER.

SO INSTEAD OF HAVING

OMEGA-9, THEY BECOME A

DIFFERENT OIL, AND, IN FACT,

THEY HAVE A DIFFERENT

STRUCTURE THAT MAY NOT BE

HEALTHY.

AND IN THE CASE OLIVE OIL,

WE DON'T BELIEVE IS

HEALTHY.

YOU DON'T WANT TO GO OVER

THE SMOKE POINT OF ANY OF

THE OILS.

Reporter: SO FOR

OPTIMAL HEALTH, EAT AN

ANTIINFLAMMATORY DIET, ONE

THAT IS LOW IN SUGAR AND

OTHER CARBOHYDRATES, AND

TRANS-FATS AND OMEGA-6 FATS,

BUT HIGH IN THE ODD NUMBERED

FATS LIKE OMEGA-3, FOUND IN

FISH, OMEGA-7, FOUND IN

MACADAMIA NUTS, AND OMEGA-9,

FOUND IN OLIVE OIL.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Mark: TWO GENERATIONS

ONE FAMILY HELPING A THIRD

GENERATION IN NEED.

Wendy: A NEW YORK MAN

HAS HIS DAUGHTER, AND NOW

HIS GRANDDAUGHTER, TO THANK

FOR HIS LIFE-SAVING

KIDNEYS.

WILLIE WEST GOT A KIDNEY

TRANSPLANT FROM HIS DAUGHTER

EIGHT YEARS AGO.

UNFORTUNATELY, NOW HE NEEDS

OTHER ONE.

THAT'S WHEN WEST'S

23-YEAR-OLD GRANDDAUGHTER

STEPPED UP TO FOLLOW IN HER

MOTHER'S COURAGEOUS

FOOTSTEPS.

MY MOTHER DONATED A

KIDNEY, SO I FIGURED WHY NOT

ME.

MY MOM IS A STRONG WOMAN.

Wendy: WILLIE'S

GRANDDAUGHTER SAYS SHE IS

EXCITED ABOUT ADDING MORE

YEARS TO HER GRANDFATHER'S

LIFE.

I LOVED MY PAPA.

HE WAS THE SHERIFF.

HE WAS COOL.

SO I UNDERSTAND HOW THAT

LOVE IS.

WE'LL SEE YOU TOMORROW.

Mark: THANKS FOR
