Mark: TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH," IS THE WORST

OVER?

THE WILD WEATHER RESPONSIBLE

FOR DEADLY TORNADOES AND

FLOODING RAIN.

PLUS, WHAT'S CAUSING A

KILLER VIRUS.

THE NEW SARS-LIKE DISEASE

THAT IS SPREADING ACROSS THE

GLOBE.

AND WHY CHIA IS THE LATEST

SUPER FOOD SWEEPING THE

NATION.

ALL THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH."

GOOD EVENING.

I'M MARK MARTIN.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE

SAYS THE WORST MAY FINALLY

BE OVER IN OKLAHOMA, AFTER

MORE THAN A DOZEN PEOPLE

DIED IN THE STORM-BATTERED

STATE.

THE SYSTEM MOVED ON TO

DRENCH NEW ENGLAND OVER THE

WEEKEND, CAUSING POWER

OUTAGES AND FLIGHT DELAYS.

MEANWHILE IN CALIFORNIA, AND

THE DESERT SOUTHWEST, THE

BIG THREAT IS FIRE.

AS JOHN WAGGI EXPLAINS IN

TONIGHT'S TOP STORY,

FORECASTERS WARN MORE WILD

WEATHER COULD HIT MUCH OF

THE COUNTRY AGAIN THIS

WEEK.

Reporter: THE

STORM-DAMAGED HOLE I --

TOLL IN OKLAHOMA WAS ALREADY

IN THE BILLIONS.

THE TORNADO LEFT RESIDENTS

WITH SPLINTERED HOMES AND

BROKEN HEARTS.

I REALLY LOVE MY HOME.

THIS HOUSE IS 117 YEARS

OLD, AND I'M, LIKE, WE'RE

OKAY.

IT IS GOING TO BE FINE.

AND IT'S JUST NOT.

Reporter: THE LATEST OF

TWO TERRIFYING STORMS HIT

FRIDAY, PRODUCING AT LEAST

FIVE TORNADOES AND MASSIVE

FLOODING.

ONE TWISTER PLOWED THROUGH

AN INTERSECTION.

AMONG THE DEAD IN OKLAHOMA,

THREE STORM-CHASERS WHO WERE

RESEARCHING TORNADOES TO

HELP PREDICT FUTURE STORMS.

HE DEVOTED LITERALLY HIS

LIFE TO SAVING OTHERS'

LIVES, AND TO BE ABLE TO

CAPTURE TORNADOES AND SAVE

LIVES THROUGH THE TECHNOLOGY

HE HAS DEVELOPED.

Reporter:

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

STILL ON THE GROUND IN

OKLAHOMA, HELPING RESIDENTS

COPE AND PICK UP THE

PIECES.

WE'LL GO BACK THERE.

WE'RE CLEAR.

WE CAN MOVE THIS WAY.

Reporter: VOLUNTEERS

ARE WORKING WITH RESIDENTS

TO CLEAR DEBRIS AND REPAIR

HOMES.

AND THEY'RE ALSO PROVIDING

ALL-IMPORTANT HUGS AND

SPIRITUAL PRAYER.

RESIDENTS OF ST. CHARLES

COUNTY, MISSOURI, ALSO

WEATHERED A TORNADO.

WATCHING THE TREES GO

BACK AND FORTH, UP AND

DOWN.

WHEN MY EARS POPPED, THAT'S

WHEN I KNEW I HAD -- I RAN

FOR COVER.

ABOUT 15 SECONDS LATER, IT

WAS ALL DONE.

Reporter: AS THE STORMS

MOVED EAST, THEY PELTED NEW

ENGLAND, UPROOTING TREES AND

LEAVING TENS OF THOUSANDS

WITHOUT POWER.

AND ON THE WEST COAST,

FIRE.

BLAZES RAGING IN SOUTHERN

CALIFORNIA HAVE DESTROYED

MORE THAN 20,000 ACRES NORTH

OF LOS ANGELES.

AT LEAST 2,000 FIREFIGHTERS

ARE DOING BATTLE.

THIS IS A VERY VOLATILE

SITUATION RIGHT NOW, AS YOU

CAN TELL BY THE WIND.

IT IS EXTREME FIRE

BEHAVIOR.

Reporter: AND IT ISN'T

JUST CALIFORNIA.

TEXAS, NEW MEXICO, ARIZONA

AND OREGON ALL ARE TRYING TO

CONTAIN FIRES AS THE SUMMER

SEASON BEGINS.

JOHN WAGGI, CBN NEWS.

Mark: THE CHAIRMAN OF

THE GOVERNMENT WATCHDOG

COMMITTEE CLAIMS THE

CINCINNATI I.R.S. AGENTS WHO

TARGETED TEA PARTY GROUPS

WERE, QUOTE,"BEING DIRECTLY

ORDERED FROM WASHINGTON."

REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN

DARRELL ISSA RELEASED

EXCERPTS OF INTERVIEWS WITH

EMPLOYEES.

THEY SHOW THE EMPLOYEES WERE

DIRECTED BY WASHINGTON TO

SUBJECT CONSERVATIVES TO

TOUGH SCRUTINY.

THE PRESIDENT'S

SPOKESPERSON IS SAYING

WHATEVER IS CONVENIENT.

WHAT WE HAVE IS PEOPLE WHO

COME INTO FOR TRANSCRIBED

INTERVIEWS, AND THEY'RE

SAYING UNDER PENALTY OF

CRIME THAT CERTAIN THINGS

ARE TRUE.

WE HAVE SUBPOENAED DOCUMENTS

THAT WOULD SUPPORT THAT, AND

THEY SAY E-MAILS WENT BACK

AND FORTH.

Mark: THE TOP -- ELIJAH

CUMMINGS SAYS THERE IS

NOTHING IN THE REPORT THAT

BACK'S ISSA'S CLAIMS.

A GOVERNMENT WATCHDOG SAYS

IT WASTED ABOUT $50 MILLION

ON 220 CONFERENCES BETWEEN

2010 AND 2012.

THAT INCLUDED $4 MILLION FOR

AN AUGUST 2010 GATHERS IN

ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA.

WOW!

ILLINOIS CONSERVATIVES

DEFEATED A CAMPAIGN BY GAY

ACTIVISTS TO PUSH THROUGH A

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE BILL LAST

WEEK.

THE ILLINOIS SENATE HAD

APPROVED THE MEASURE IN

FEBRUARY, BUT THE STATE

HOUSE ADJOURNED FRIDAY

WITHOUT VOTE OG AN VOTING

ON THE MEASURE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA EVEN JUMPED

IN AT THE LAST MINUTE,

URGING LAWMAKERS TO APPROVE

GAY MARRIAGE IN HIS HOME

STATE.

GAY ACTIVISTS THOUGHT

MOMENTUM WERE YO WAS IN

THEIR FAVOR AFTER SEVERAL

OTHER STATES APPROVED IT,

BUT CONSERVATIVE BLACK

PASTORS AND OTHER CHURCH

LEADERS FOUGHT BACK WITH

RADIO COMMERCIALS, ROBO

CALLS AND LOBBYING.

GAY SUPPORTERS SAY THEY

WON'T GIVE UP IN ILLINOIS.

THE SUPREME COURT WILL SOON

ISSUE ITS DECISIONS ON GAY

MARRIAGE CASES.

BACK IN MARCH, THE JUSTICES

HEARD ARGUMENTS IN TWO SUCH

CASES.

THE DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE ACT,

THE FEDERAL LAW DEFINING

MARRIAGE AS BETWEEN ONE MAN

AND ONE WOMAN, AND

CALIFORNIA'S PROPOSITION 8.

THE STATE'S VOTER-APPROVED

BAN ON GAY MARRIAGE.

SINCE THE HIGH COURT TOOK UP

THE ISSUE, THREE STATES IN

THE COUNTRY HAVE APPROVED

SAME-SEX MARRIAGE MEASURES,

LEADING SOME TO WONDER IF

THAT WILL IMPACT THE

JUSTICES' DECISIONS.

IN HEALTH NEWS TEMPERATURE,

IT IS A DISEASE THAT HAS

KILLED HALF OF ALL OF THE

PEOPLE DIAGNOSED WITH IT.

AND DOCTORS ARE WARNING IT

IS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME

BEFORE IT ARRIVES IN THE

U.S.

Reporter: THE WORLD'S

LEADING HEALTH OFFICIALS ARE

FRANTICALLY STUDYING A NEW

MYSTERY VIRUS.

IT IS BEING CALLED MERS.

SO FAR ITS VICTIMS ALL HAVE

ONE THING IN COMMON: THEY

HAVE EITHER TRAVELLED TO THE

MIDDLE EAST OR COME IN VERY

CLOSE CONTACT WITH SOMEONE

WHO DID.

WE REALLY NEED, AS FAST

AS POSSIBLE, TO LEARN HOW TO

CONTROL THIS VIRUS.

WE HAVE TO TRY TO RUN FASTER

THAN THE VIRUS DOES.

Reporter: 49 CASES OF

THE NEW DISEASE HAVE BEEN

REPORTED SINCE JUNE.

27 OF THOSE CASES HAVE

DIED.

THAT'S A 52% MORALITY RATE.

THE FIRST CASES WERE

REPORTED IN SAUDI ARABIA,

BUT ALREADY PEOPLE IN AT

LEAST SEVEN COUNTRIES HAVE

BECOME INFECTED.

HEALTH EXPERTS COMPARE THE

VIRUS TO SARS, WHICH TOOK

OFF NEARLY 10 YEARS AGO,

SPREADING FIRST BETWEEN 12

HOTEL GUESTS, AND THEN

ACROSS THE ENTIRE GLOBE

AFTER THOSE GUESTS GOT ON

AIRPLANES.

WITHIN NINE MONTHS, THERE

WERE MORE THAN 8,000 CASES

AND MORE THAN 700 DEATHS.

FOR NOW, RESEARCHERS REMAIN

CLUELESS.

THEY KNOW THAT THE SYMPTOMS

OF MERS INCLUDE FEVER,

CHILLS, AND MUSCLE ACHES.

LATER, BREATHING PROBLEMS.

BUT IT IS STILL UNCLEAR WHAT

THE HOST ANIMAL OF THE VIRUS

IS AND HOW IT IS SPREAD TO

HUMANS.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

Mark: A PLANNED

PARENTHOOD CLINIC IN

DELAWARE PERFORMED ABORTIONS

LIKE A MEAT MARKET-STYLE

ASSEMBLY LINE.

THAT WAS THE CHURCH FROM ONE

OF THE TWO NURSES WHO

TESTIFIED BEFORE A STATE

SENATE HEARING.

BOTH NURSES QUIT THEIR

POSITIONS WITH PLANNED

PARENTHOOD BECAUSE OF THE

TERRIBLE CONDITIONS IN THE

TOO CLINICS.

JANE MITCHELL TESTIFIED HER

EXPERIENCE WAS, QUOTE,"AN

ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE."

SHE SAID, QUOTE,"THIS TYPE

OF CARE WAS SOMETHING I HAD

NEVER SEEN BEFORE IN MY

ENTIRE NURSING CAREER.

ON AN AVERAGE DAY AT THE

WILMINGTON PLANNED

PARENTHOOD SITE, ONE

ABORTION WOULD BE COMPLETED

EVERY EIGHT TO 10 MINUTES."

AND JOYCE VASACONAS

SAID, "WHAT I FOUND IS THAT

THE CULTURE OF THE PLANNED

PARENTHOOD WAS FOCUSED ON

MAXIMIZING PROFITS IN THE

BOTTOM LINE, NOT HEALTH CARE

FOR WOMEN."

THEY SAY THEY ARE OPPOSED TO

THE POOR PRACTICES IN THE

CLINICS.

BO BIDEN'S OFFICE HAS FILED

A COMPLAINT AGAINST ONE OF

THE DOCTORS IN THE CLINIC.

BUT ONE OF THE NURSES SAID

HE WAS ONLY A SMALL PART OF

THE PROBLEM.

SENATORS FROM BOTH PARTIES

SAY THE CLINICS NEED TIGHTER

REGULATION.

A CENTRAL FLORIDA SCHOOL

DISTRICT IS APOLOGIZING FOR

USING EYE-SCANNING TRACKING

DEVICES ON STUDENTS WITHOUT

THEIR PARENTS' PERMISSION.

ACCORDING TO FOX NEWS,

HIGH-TECH EYE-SCANNING

CAMERAS WERE USED ON

STUDENTS AT DAVENPORT SCHOOL

OF THE ARTS, DANIEL JENKINS

ACADEMY AND BETHUNA

ACADEMY.

THE CAMERAS WERE INSTALLED

ON SCHOOL BUSES AS PART OF A

SECURITY PROGRAM.

THE CAMERAS CAPTURED

STUDENTS' NAMES AND

IDENTIFICATION NUMBERS, BUT

THE PARENTS WERE NEVER

NOTIFIED ABOUT THE TRACKING

SYSTEM.

THE SCHOOL OFFICIALS HAVE

NOW APOLOGIZED FOR NOT

GIVING PARENTS A CHANCE TO

OPT OUT.

SMARTPHONE USERS WHO WANT TO

DITCH THEIR PASSWORDS COULD

SOON BE ABLE TO USE

ELECTRONIC TATTOOS OR EVEN

PILLS TO DO THE JOB.

MOTOROLA SHOWED OFF THE

LATEST TATTOO TECHNOLOGY AT

A RECENT TECH CONFERENCE.

THE SO-CALLED BIOSTAMPS

CONTAIN FLEXIBLE ELECTRONIC

CIRCUITS THAT ATTACH TO THE

SKIN WITH A RUBBER STAMP.

USERS WOULD PLACE THEIR

SMART PHONE NEAR THEIR

TATTOO FOR IDENTITY.

THE PILLS HAVE STOMACH ACID

THAT POWER THE TABLET, THAT

CAN VERIFY IDENTITY.

PRIVACY ADVOCATES SAY

THEY'RE CONCERNED ABOUT

THESE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS,

AND NO WONDER.

BUT A MOTOROLA SPOKESPERSON

SAYS THEY WON'T BE PUT OFF

BY PEOPLE WHO FIND THE

TECHNOLOGY CREEPY.

WHY SOME SAY IT IS IMPORTANT

FOR CHRISTIANS IN THE U.K.

TO SPEAK OUT ABOUT THEIR

FAITH.

Mark: THE WIFE OF THE

CHRISTIAN PASTOR JAILED AND

TORTURED IN IRAN PLED HER

HUSBAND'S CASE BEFORE THE

U.N. HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL.

NAGNE ABEDINI URGED THE

PANEL TO E DEFEND THE

PERSECUTED CHURCH.

SHE ASKED MEMBER STATES TO

TAKE MORE ACTION ON HER

HUSBAND'S BEHALF.

SAEED ABEDINI WAS SENTENCED

TO EIGHT YEARS IN THE

NOTORIOUS PRISON BECAUSE OF

HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH.

MORE THAN 600,000 PEOPLE

WORLDWIDE HAVE SIGNED A

PETITION ASKING FOR SA

SAEED'S RELEASE.

TWO-THIRDS OF CHRISTIANS IN

THE UNITED KINGDOM BELIEVE

THAT ARE A PERSECUTED

MINORITY ACCORDING TO A

RECENT POLL.

A FORMER ARCHBISHOP

DISAGREES WITH THOSE

FINDINGS, BUT HE BELIEVES

CHRISTIANS ARE EXPERIENCING

MORE DISCRIMINATION THEN

EVERY BEFORE.

WE SPOKE WITH LORD KERRY

ABOUT HIS VIEWS.

Reporter: PRIME

MINISTER'S DAVID CAMERON'S

SUPPORT FOR GAY MARRIAGE,

AND A GROWING NUMBER OF

DISCRIMINATION CASES AGAINST

CHRISTIANS IN THE WORKPLACE

HAD LED THE LORD TO ACCUSE

THE P.M. OF BETRAYING

CHRISTIANS.

THE ARTICLE ACCUSED THE

GOVERNMENTS OF AIDING AND

ABETTING DISCRIMINATION

AGAINST CHRISTIANS, AND SAID

MANY DOUBT DAVID CAMERON'S

SINCERITY IN SAYING HE WILL

PROTECT THEIR FREEDOMS.

I WAS VERY CLEAR TO MAKE

A STATEMENT ABOUT WHAT I

REGARD AS THE DUPLICITY OF

THE PRIME MINISTER IN SAYING

WONDERFUL WORDS ABOUT THE

CHRISTIAN CHURCH AND WHAT

THE LEADERS ARE DOING, BUT

THE ACTIONS OF HIS

GOVERNMENT GO IN A

COMPLETELY DIFFERENT

DIRECTION.

Reporter: HE SITES A

CITES A NUMBER OF CASES

WHERE THE GOVERNMENT HAS

DISCRIMINATED AGAINST

CHRISTIANS IN THE

WORKPLACE.

CHRISTIANS ARE BEING

DISCRIMINATED AGAINST AND

SOME ARE LOSING THEIR JOBS.

I THINK WE'VE REALLY GOT TO

STAND UP FOR OUR FAITH

TODAY, WHETHER IN AMERICA OR

IN BRITAIN, ELSEWHERE.

I'VE OFTEN SAID IF YOU

BEHAVE LIKE A DOOR MAT,

DON'T BE SURPRISED IF PEOPLE

TREAT YOU LIKE ONE.

Reporter: LORD KERRY

BELIEVES IT IS ESPECIALLY

CRUCIAL FOR CHRISTIANS TO

SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE

CAMERON GOVERNMENT'S PUSH TO

LEGALIZE GAY MARRIAGE.

WE MUST ACTUALLY WORK

WITH THE GOVERNMENT NOT TO

RESCIND OUR MARITAL LAWS,

BUT TO STRENGTHEN MARRIAGE.

MARRIAGE OF ONE MAN TO ONE

WOMAN WITH THE IDEAL OF TO

DEATH US DO PART.

Reporter: HOWEVER, HE

MADE IT CLEAR HE DOES NOT

BELIEVE CHRISTIANS IN THE

WEST ARE PERSECUTED, AND HE

DOES NOT BELIEVE THE P.M.

HAS AN ANTI-CHRISTIAN

AGENDA.

HE SAYS THE GROWING DECLINE

OF RELIGIOUS FREEDOM HAS A

LOT TO DO WITH LACK OF

BIBLICAL KNOWLEDGE.

I THINK A LOT OF IT HAS

TO DO WITH IGNORANCE.

SO PEOPLE CAN CONFUSE

MARRIAGE WITH JUST BEING

NICE TO ONE ANOTHER.

AND IF ONE MAN LOVES ANOTHER

MAN, THEN THAT IS THE EQUAL

OF MARRIAGE, WHICH, OF

COURSE, IT IS NOT.

WE'RE I INHERITING NOW A

HERITAGE OF NEGLECT OF THE

BIBLE.

I THINK IT IS A CHALLENGE OF

THE CHURCHES TO GET BACK TO

SCRIPTURAL TEACHGZ.

TEACHINGS.

Reporter: HE BELIEVES

THE CHRISTIANS MUST BE

CAREFUL IN HOW THEY

COMMUNICATE THEIR MESSAGE.

DON'T TAKE ANYTHING FOR

GRANTED.

DON'T LET PEOPLE GET AWAY

WITH IT AND ARGUE.

BUT THE SECOND, AND MOST

IMPORTANT THING IS GET THE

TONE RIGHT.

SPEAK WITH GENTLENESS.

SPEAK IN THE TRUTH AND

LOVE.

BE COURTEOUS TO OTHERS.

Reporter: HE SENDS OUT

THIS CHALLENGE TO U.K.

CHURCHES TO BRING THEIR

VOICES BEFORE GOVERNMENT.

THE QUESTION REMAINS: WILL

DAVID CAMERON LISTEN AND

BRING THIS NATION BACK TO

CHRISTIAN VALUES.

PETER WOOD, CBN NEWS,

LONDON, ENGLAND.

Mark: UP NEXT, THE

SURPRISING SUPER FOOD

DOCTORS SAY CAN KEEP YOU

HEALTHY.

Mark: WELCOME BACK.

MISSING YOUR MORNING CUP OF

COFFEE COULD LEAD TO A

MENTAL HEALTH DISORDER.

THE AMERICAN PSYCHIATRIC

ASSOCIATION'S MANTLE OF

MENTAL DISORDERS NAMES

CAFFEINE WITHDRAWAL AS AN

ILLNESS.

SOMETIMES INCLUDE FATIGUE,

HEADACHE, AND DIFFICULTY

FOCUSING.

YEAH, I ENDED UP WITH A

REALLY BAD HEADACHE.

YOU WOULDN'T WANT TO BE

AROUND ME WITHOUT CAFFEINE,

LET'S PUT IT THAT WAY.

THE SCARY THING IS ALL OF

THE THINGS YOU DON'T KNOW

HAVE CAFFEINE IN IT.

Mark: GOOD POINT.

DOCTORS SAY CAFFEINE IS SAFE

TO ABOUT 400 MILLIGRAMS A

DAY.

THAT'S ABOUT FOUR CUPS OF

COFFEE.

DOCTORS OFTEN CREDIT HEALTHY

AND LONG LIVES TO EATING

RIGHT.

AND NOW MANY ARE RAVING

ABOUT A NEW SUPER FOOD,

CHIA.

IN TONIGHT'S FORECAST

REPORT, LORI JOHNSON

EXPLORES THE VALUE OF THE

SMALL SEED.

THERE IS A NEW PET.

CHIA PET.

THE POTTERY THAT GROWS.

Reporter: FOR YEARS

CHIA PETS HAVE BEEN TICKLING

OUR FUNNY BONE.

YOU SPREAD CHIA SEEDS ON A

TOY ANIMAL, THE SEEDS GROW

AND LOOK LIKE HAIR.

IT TURNS OUT INSTEAD OF

LAUGHING AT CHIA SEEDS, WE

SHOULD HAVE BEEN EATING

THEM.

THEY'RE INCREDIBLY HEALTHY,

TO THE EXTENT THAT CHIA IS

THE NEW SUPER FOOD.

MOST OF US HAVE NEVER HEARD

OF EATING CHIA SEEDS, BUT

THE IDEA IS IS ACTUALLY VERY

OLD.

IN FACT, HUNDREDS OF YEARS

AGO, AZTEC WARRIORS ATE CHIA

SEEDS TO STAY STRONG IN

BATTLE.

NONOW CHIA IS THE

CORNERSTONE OF DR. BOB

ARNOT'S AZTEC DIET.

MOST PEOPLE ON A DIET

COMPLAIN ABOUT THIS

BRAIN-SEARING HUNGER.

SO THE ADVANTAGE HERE IS

THAT WITH CHIA, YOU PUT IT

IN YOUR STOMACH, AND IT

GROWS SEVEN TIMES ITS SIZE

IN YOUR STOMACH.

IT WAS DESCRIBED BY ONE

MAGAZINE AS MINI LAP BAND

SURGERY.

Reporter: AT JUST

70 CALORIES, THESE

REMARKABLE LITTLE SEEDS

BRING YOU SIX TIMES MORE

CALCIUM THAN MILK, THREE

TIMES MORE IRON THAN

SPINACH, AND EIGHT TIMES THE

OMEGA-3s FOUND IN SALMON.

IN THE BRAIN, YOU NEED A

CERTAIN AMOUNT OF OMEGA-3s

TO COMBAT MENTAL ILLNESS.

IT IS EVEN USED AS PART OF

SOME TREATMENT REGIMENS.

Reporter: AND IT

CONTAINS MAGNESIUM,

SELENIUM, FIBRE, AND

PROTEIN.

THAT'S IMPORTANT BECAUSE,

BELIEVE IT OR NOT,

OVERWEIGHT PEOPLE ARE OFTEN

MALNOURISHED.

IN FACT, THAT'S HOW WE GET

FAT.

WE STUFF OURSELVES WITH JUNK

FOOD THINKING IT WILL

SATISFY OUR NEEDS.

BUT THE TRUTH IS IS IT IS

ONLY WHEN WE GET ENOUGH

MICRONUTRIENTS WE STOP

WANTING MORE FOOD.

WE'RE NOT GETTING ALL OF

THE ANTIOXIDANTS AND

NUTRIENTS WE NEED WITH THE

JUNK FOOD.

SO OUR BODY IS ALWAYS HUNGRY

FOR THE MICRONUTRIENTS.

AND WE EAT MORE CHIPS AND

FRENCH FRIES, AND WE NEVER

GET IT, SO WE MASSIVELY

OVEREAT.

Reporter: MOSTLY WE EAT

TOO MANY REFINED

CARBOHYDRATES IN SUITES AND

THINGS LIKE BREAD.

THEY RAISE OUR BLOOD SUGAR,

WHICH MAKE US WANT MORE.

RICE CAKES, PANCAKES,

BAGELS, FRENCH TOAST, YOU

HAVE A BIG CARB LOAD, AND

THAT'S THE PRIMARY REASON SO

MANY OF US ARE OVERWEIGHT

AND HAVE DIABETES.

STUDIES SHOW IF YOU DROP

THAT CAR BE LOAD, YOUR

FASTING BLOOD SUGAR IS GOING

TO COME DOWN, AND THE WEIGHT

IS GOING TO COME OFF.

Reporter: EATING TOO

MANY OF THESE CARBOHYDRATES

NOT ONLY MAKES US FAT, IT

CAN ALSO LEAD TO DISEASE.

THE SUGAR AND STARCH

OVERLOAD CAUSES

INFLAMMATION, WHICH IS

BLAMED FOR HEALTH PROBLEMS,

RANGING FROM LAKERS T HEART

ATTACKS TO CANCER.

THE KEY THING ABOUT

INFLAMMATION IS IT AFFECTS

OUR BRAIN AND IT AFFECTS THE

NEUROTRAN MITTERSSMITTERS

AND WE FEEL JUST TERRIBLE.

THAT'S THE MAIN REASON WHY

PEOPLE DON'T HAVE THE

MOTIVATION AND CAN'T GET UT

AND EXERCISE BECAUSE THEY

FEEL TERRIBLE.

Reporter: BY AVOIDING

THE CARBS, YOU'LL REDUCE

INFLAMMATION, LOSE WEIGHT,

AND FEEL MORE ENERGETIC.

SO REPLACE CARBOHYDRATES

WITH FOODS THAT ARE JUST THE

OPPOSITE, LOW IN CALORIES,

BUT HIGH IN NUTRITION.

FOODS LIKE CHIA.

MORE GROCERY STORES AND

HEALTH FOOD STORES ARE

CARING CHIA, OR YOU CAN BUY

IT ONLINE.

A ONE-POUND BAG USUALLY

COSTS ABOUT $12.

THE MOSTLY FLAVORLESS SEEDS

CAN BE ADDED WHOLE OR GROUND

TO JUST ABOUT ANY FOOD OR

DRINK.

DR. ARNOT MIXES A QUARTER

CUP WITH TWO OTHER SUPER

FOODS, BLUEBERRIES AND KALE,

WITH HONEY AND WATER, FOR A

DRINK SAYS CAN BE LIFE

CHANGING.

YOU GLUCOSE LOAD GOES

LIKE THIS, AND YOU FEEL FULL

AND YOU FEEL AMAZINGLY

GREAT.

WITHIN SIX HOURS, YOU WILL

FEEL THE DIFFERENCE.

Reporter: SO WHILE

REPLACING REFINED

CARBOHYDRATES WITH FOODS

HIGH IN NUTRIENTS AND LOW IN

CALORIES, YOU'LL BE ON THE

ROAD TO WEIGHT LOSS,

INCREASED ENERGY, AND QUITE

POSSIBLY A LONGER LIFE.

LORI JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Mark: UP NEXT, THE

IDAHO WOMAN WHO IS JUMPING

INTO HER 102 BIRTHDAY IN

STYLE.

Mark: AN IDAHO WOMAN IS

LITERALLY JUMPING AT THE

IDEA OF HER SECOND YEAR AS A

CENTENARIAN.

INSTEAD OF LAYING LOW, SHE

WENT BASE JUMPING OFF A

BRIDGE.

WHY AM I?

Reporter: WHY ARE YOU?

I KIND OF ASK MYSELF

THAT, TOO.

I GUESS IT IS BECAUSE I

DON'T KNOW ANY BETTER.

I WAS GOING TO JUMP OUT OF A

PLANE, BUT THEN I FOUND IT

WAS TOO MUCH.

SO I SAID, WELL, FORGET IT.

I'LL JUST HAVE A VERY CALM

BIRTHDAY.

I NEVER THOUGHT OF AGE.

I JUST WENT ON LIVING AND

HAVING A GOOD TIME.

AND DOING WHAT WAS

NECESSARY.

I'M REALLY EXCITED.

I'M EXCITED FOR HER, MOSTLY,

BECAUSE I NEVER ANYBODY AS

AMAZING.

Mark: LOOK AT HER GO.

DOROTHY ZIP LINED FOR THE

FIRST TIME, THIS YEAR'S

TANDEM JUMP WAS A GIFT FROM

HER FAMILY.

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THAT

FAMILY THERE.

THAT'S ALL FOR THIS EDITION

OF "NEWSWATCH."
