On CBN Newswatch, March 7: Obamacare fines and Planned Parenthood? What's in the new health law; Russia bans children from 'Beauty and the Beast,' and more. Read Transcript


Efrem: STRAIGHT AHEAD

ON CBN "NEWSWATCH," NEW

HEALTH PLAN.

REPUBLICANS ROLL OUT THE

REPLACEMENT FOR OBAMACARE.

LEARN WHAT IS AHEAD AS

LAWMAKERS MOVE TO REPEAL

AND REPLACE.

> PLUS, PRESIDENT TRUMP

SIGNS A NEW EXECUTIVE

ORDER FOR THE TRAVEL BAN.

WE'LL BREAK DOWN THE

CHANGES.

IT AMAZES ME THAT

MEDICAL SCIENCE IS JUST

FINDING THIS OUT.

Efrem: NOW RESEARCH

EXPOSES THE DANGERS OF

SUGAR.

> AND THANK YOU SO MUCH

FOR JOINING US FOR CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

REPUBLICANS ARE TAKING THE

FIRST STEP TO FULFILL ONE

OF PRESIDENT TRUMP'S

BIGGEST CAMPAIGN PROMISES,

REPEALING AND REPLACING

OBAMACARE.

BUT THE PLAN FACES

ROADBLOCKS IN CONGRESS.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THIS

STORY.

Charlene: LAST WEEK

PRESIDENT TRUMP CALLED ON

CONGRESS TO TAKE ACTION ON

OBAMACARE.

President Trump: I'M

CALLING ON ALL DEMOCRATS

AND REPUBLICANS IN

CONGRESS TO SAVE AMERICANS

FROM THIS IMPLODING

OBAMACARE DISASTER.

Charlene: THE HOUSE

PLAN IS CALLED "THE

AMERICAN HEALTH CARE ACT."

TWO OF THE HOUSE

REPUBLICANS BEHIND IT,

INCLUDING WAYS AND MEANS

CHAIRMAN KEVIN BRADY, SAY

IN A PIECE IN THE WALL

STREET TODAY, IT WILL

RESCUE THOSE HURT BY

OBAMACARE'S FAILURES, AND

LAY THE GROUND WORK FOR A

PATIENT-CENTERED HEALTH

CARE SYSTEM.

OUR FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE

PLAN WILL LOWER COSTS FOR

PATIENTS, AND GIVE CONTROL

FROM WASHINGTON BACK TO

THE STATES.

THE BILL WILL IMPROVE

ACCESS TO CARE AND RESTORE

THE FREE MARKET,

INCREASING INNOVATION,

COMPETITION, AND CHOICE.

THE PLAN GETS RID OF SOME

OF THE MOST UNPOPULAR

PARTS OF OBAMACARE, LIKE

FORCING PEOPLE TO BUY

HEALTH CARE EVEN IF THEY

DON'T WANT TO.

AND IT BLOCKS TAXPAYER

MONEY FROM GOING TO

PLANNED PARENTHOOD FOR A

YEAR.

THE BILL GETS RID OF

OBAMACARE'S GOVERNMENT

SUBSIDIES FOR HEALTH

INSURANCE AND REPLACES

THEM WITH FEDERAL TAX

CREDITS TO HELP PEOPLE BY

INSURANCE.

AND IT PLANS CONTRIBUTIONS

TO HEALTH SAVINGS

ACCOUNTS, AND FORBIDS

PLANS THAT COVER ABORTION.

AND THEY LET ADULTS STAY

ON THEIR PARENTS' PLANS

UNTIL THEIR 26, AND

PROTECTS PEOPLE WITH

PREEXISTING CONDITIONS.

BUT THERE ARE STILL

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PLAN,

INCLUDING HOW MANY PEOPLE

WILL LOSE INSURANCE FROM

OBAMACARE, AND HOW MUCH IT

WILL COST.

THE CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET

OFFICE HASN'T ESTIMATED

THAT YET.

AND MANY REPUBLICANS HAVE

QUESTIONS ABOUT PARTS OF

THE PLAN, AND DEMOCRATS

WILL OPPOSE IT BECAUSE

THEY DON'T WANT TO GET RID

OF OBAMACARE.

BUT OBAMACARE HAS BEEN

UNPOPULAR IN THE POLLS FOR

SEVERAL YEARS.

AND EVEN FORMER PRESIDENT

CLINTON BLASTED IT ON THE

CAMPAIGN TRAIL LAST YEAR.

SO YOU'VE GOT THIS

CRAZY SYSTEM WHERE ALL OF

A SUDDEN 25 MILLION MORE

PEOPLE HAVE HEALTH CARE,

AND THE PEOPLE WHO ARE

BUSTING THEMSELVES,

SOMETIMES 60 HOURS A WEEK,

WIND UP WITH THEIR

PREMIUMS DOUBLED AND THEIR

COVERAGE CUT IN HALF.

IT IS THE CRAZIEST THING

IN THE WORLD.

Charlene: THE PLAN IS

LIKELY TO BE A STARTING

POINT ON DISCUSSION ON

REPLACING OBAMACARE, AND

IT MAY TAKE A WHILE.

IT TOOK THE DEMOCRATS OVER

A YEAR TO PASS OBAMA'S

HEALTH CARE PLAN IN 2009

AND 2010.

BUT REPUBLICANS ARE

CLEARLY DETERMINED TO PUSH

AHEAD SO THEY CAN THEN

MOVE ON FOR THEIR NEXT BIG

GOAL FOR THIS YEAR:

REFORMING THE TAX CODE AND

CUTTING TAXES FOR

BUSINESSES AND

INDIVIDUALS.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THE PRESIDENT

HAS SIGNED A SECOND

EXECUTIVE ORDER ON

IMMIGRATION, AIMED AT

KEEPING POSSIBLE

TERRORISTS OUT OF THE

COUNTRY.

THIS TRAVEL BAN LOOSENS

LANGUAGE, PROVIDING HELP

FOR CHRISTIAN REFUGEES.

WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT

JENNIFER WISH WESJENNIFER WISHON HAS THE

DETAILS.

Jennifer: THE WHITE

HOUSE IS HITTING THE RESET

BUTTON, AFTER THE

PRESIDENT'S FIRST

IMMIGRATION ORDER WAS SHUT

DOWN BY A PANEL OF JUDGES.

THIS TIME THERE WAS NO FAN

FAIR, NO BIG BILL SIGNING.

INSTEAD, THE CABINET

SECRETARIES RESPONSIBLE

FOR CARRYING IT OUT

HANDLED THE DETAILS.

JEFF SESSIONS SAYS, LIKE

THE FIRST EXECUTIVE ORDER,

IT IS PERFECTLY LEGAL.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER

RESPONSIBLY PROVIDES A

NEEDED PAUSE.

SO WE CAN CAREFULLY REVIEW

HOW WE SCRUTINIZE PEOPLE

COMING HERE FROM THESE

COUNTRIES OF CONCERN.

Jennifer: TRAVELLERS

FROM IRAN, LIBYA, SOMALIA,

SUDAN, SYRIA, AND YEMEN

ARE BANNED FROM ENTERING

THE COUNTRY FOR 90 DAYS.

IRAQ, WHICH WAS INCLUDED

IN THE FIRST ORDER, HAS

BEEN REMOVED AFTER THE

COUNTRY MADE IMPROVEMENTS

TO ITS VETTING SYSTEM.

PEOPLE TRAVELLING FOR

MEDICAL CARE OR FOREIGN

NATIONALS WORKING FOR THE

U.S. GOVERNMENT ARE FREE

TO ENTER THE GOVERNMENT.

THE ROLLOUT IS DELAYED

UNTIL MARCH 16th, TO

GIVE TRAVELLERS AND

AGENCIES A CHANCE TO

COMPLY AND APPEASE TO

COURTS.

WE CANNOT RISK THE

PROCESS OF USING OUR

IMMIGRATION SYSTEM TO TAKE

AMERICAN LIVES.

Jennifer: SO WHAT

ABOUT CHRISTIANS AND OTHER

RELIGIOUS MINORITIES

FACING PERSECUTION?

INSTEAD OF GIVING THEM

PRIORITY, THE DEPARTMENTS

OF STATE AND HOMELAND

SECURITY HAVE BEEN GIVEN

THE POWER TO GRANT

WAIVERS.

AS BEING DENIED STATUS AS

A REFUGEE WOULD CAUSE

SOMEONE UNDO HARDSHIP,

LIKE CHRISTIANS AND OTHERS

FACING GENOCIDE AT THE

HANDS OF ISIS.

BUT THE NEW ORDER COULD

FACE CHALLENGES FROM

OPPONENTS.

MEANWHILE, THE WHITE HOUSE

ISN'T SAYING MUCH ABOUT

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S CHARGE

THAT FORMER PRESIDENT

OBAMA WIRE TAPPED TRUMP

TOWER.

THEY'RE WAITING FOR THE

HOUSE AND SENATE

INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEES TO

BEGIN THEIR

INVESTIGATIONS.

HE WAS ASKED THAT THEY

ADDITIONALLY LOOK INTO

THIS ISSUE OF LEAKS OF

CLASSIFIED AND OTHER

INFORMATION COMING FROM

THE GOVERNMENT.

HE BELIEVES IT UNDERMINES

OUR NATIONAL SECURITY.

Jennifer: AND THE

PRESIDENT IS ALSO DEALING

WITH A MAJOR TEST IN

FOREIGN POLICY, THE

GROWING THREAT OF NORTH

KOREA.

DURING THE NATION'S

BALLISTIC MISSILES TEST,

THREE OF THE MISSILES

LANDED IN JAPANESE WATERS.

IMAGINE ONE DAY ONE OF

THESE NORTH KOREAN

MISSILES DOESN'T STOP IN

THE SEA OF JAPAN, BUT HITS

SOMEWHERE IN JAPAN.

I CAN TELL YOU JAPAN WOULD

RESPOND.

IMAGINE IF THE SAME THING

HAPPENED IN SOUTH KOREA.

SOUTH KOREA WOULD RESPOND.

AND WE'RE TALKING ABOUT

NUCLEAR WEAPONS POSSIBLY.

Jennifer: BOTH OF

THOSE COUNTRIES ARE U.S.

ALLIES.

ABSOLUTELY.

SO THAT WOULD DRAW THE

UNITED STATES INTO ANY

CONFLICT.

Jennifer: HARRY, WITH

THE CENTER FOR THE

NATIONAL DEFENSE, EXPECTS

TO SEE KOREA LAUNCH MORE

MISSILES MORE FREQUENTLY.

NORTH KOREA, FOR

EXAMPLE, COULD PUT

BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS OR

CHEMICAL WEAPONS, AND THEY

COULD LOB IT AT THE UNITED

STATES.

THAT WOULD HAVE A VERY,

VERY SCARY AFFECT ON THE

UNITED STATES AND ITS

ALLIES.

Jennifer: HE SAYS KIM

JONG-UN KNOWS THE U.S.

WON'T INVADE HIS COUNTRY

SCHOANGAS LONG AS HE HAS NUCLEAR

CABLES.

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

IS CONSIDERING TOUGHER

SANCTIONS.

AND THE WHITE HOUSE REVIEW

OF STRATEGY INCLUDES THE

POSSIBILITY OF USING

MILITARY FORCE OR REGIME

CHANGE AGAINST THE NORTH

TO BLUNT ITS NUCLEAR

THREAT.

LAST WEEK A SENIOR WHITE

HOUSE OFFICIAL CALLED

NORTH KOREA THE GREATEST

THREAT FACING THE U.S.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

THE WHITE HOUSE.

Efrem: THE UNITED

STATES SUPREME COURT IS

NOW REFUSING TO HEAR THE

CASE OF GAVIN GRIM.

HE IS A TRANSGENDER

STUDENT FROM VIRGINIA WHO

WANTED TO BE ABLE TO

CHOOSE WHICH BATHROOM TO

USE.

A LOWER VIRGINIA COURT

WILL NOW MAKE THE

DECISION.

THE SUPREME COURT WAS

SCHEDULED TO HEAR HIS CASE

THIS MONTH, BUT THAT

CHANGED AFTER THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION WITHDREW

THE TRANSGENDER POLICY

IMPLEMENTED BY PRESIDENT

OBAMA.

> WORD FROM INSIDE THE

WHITE HOUSE IS AN

EXECUTIVE ORDER ON

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IS STILL

IN THE WORKS.

EXIT POLLS SHOW

EVANGELICALS WHO VOTED FOR

PRESIDENT TRUMP SEE THAT

HAS A HIGH PRIORITY.

JENNA BROWDER TAKES A

CLOSER LOOK AT WHY SOME

WANT THIS ADDRESSED.

WE HAVE NEW INFORMATION

OF A BAKERY THAT BECAME

THE CENTER OF A NATIONWIDE

CONTROVERSY OVER GAY

RIGHTS.

Reporter: RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM GAINING TRACTION

WITH SEVERAL HIGH-PROFILE

CASES PLAYING OUT IN THE

NEWS.

AND ONE THAT IS ESPECIALLY

SIGNIFICANT TO CHRISTIANS.

HOW IMPORTANT IS IT

THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP SIGN

AN EXECUTIVE ORDER ABOUT

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM?

WHAT WE'VE SEEN IN THE

LAST EIGHT YEARS THROUGH

THE POLICIES OF THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION IS REALLY

THIS IDEA THAT RELIGIOUS

EXPRESSION IS BAD IN

PUBLIC, AND THE POLICIES

HAVE KIND OF QUARANTINED

FAITH WITHIN THE WALLS OF

OUR CHURCHES.

Reporter: TONY

PERKINS, PRESIDENT OF THE

FAMILY RESEARCH COUNCIL,

HAS ADVISED MEMBERS OF THE

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ON

THE TOPIC AND NOW WANTS

THE PRESIDENT TO ACT.

THE EXECUTIVE ORDER

WOULD SIMPLY TATE THAT YOU STATE THAT

YOU DON'T HAVE TO LEAVE

YOUR FAITH AT HOME OR

WITHIN THE FOUR WALLS OF

THE CHURCH.

Reporter: IN OTHER

WORDS, FREEDOM OF RELIGION

WOULD AP LI APPLY TO THOSE WHO

WORK IN ALL AREAS OF LIFE,

INCLUDING BUSINESS AND THE

GOVERNMENT.

A DRAFT VERSION OF THE

ORDER FLOATED SEVERAL

WEEKS AGO, AND DREW STRONG

CRITICISM FROM LGBT GROUPS

AND SOME LIBERALS.

IT HAS PROTECTION FOR

PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE, RELOIMPS

AND OTHER GROUPS WOULD NOT

HAVE TO PROVIDE HEALTH

INSURANCE THAT COVERS

BIRTH CONTROL OR ABORTION.

AND IT COULD PROTECT THE

TAX EXEMPT STATUS OF FAITH

GROUPS WHO SPEAK OUT ON

POLITICS.

> HOW CONFIDENT ARE YOU

THAT THIS WILL HAPPEN, AND

DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA AS TO

WHEN?

I DON'T HAVE ANY IDEA

WHEN, BUT I THINK IT WILL

BE SOONER THAN LATER.

I DO BELIEVE THIS

ADMINISTRATION WILL

ADDRESS THE ISSUE.

I THINK THE PRESIDENT

HIMSELF UNDERSTANDS THE

NEED.

Reporter: AND WHAT

ABOUT PEOPLE LIKE AARON

AND MELISSA CLINE, THE

OREGON COUPLE FINED FOR

REFUSING TO MAKE A CAKE

FOR A GAY WEDDING.

IT IS NOT THAT THEY DID

NOT WANT TO PROVIDE

SERVICES TO SOMEONE THAT

WAS GAY OR LESBIAN.

IT IS THAT THEY DIDN'T

WANT TO BE FORCED INTO

PROVIDING THEIR CREATIVE

SERVICES FOR A WEDDING.

THEY'VE SOLD TO COSTUMERS,

JUST AS FLORISTS LIKE

BARON L.STUTSMAN SEVERED

EVERYBODY WHO CAME THROUGH

THE DOOR, BUT DID NOT WANT

TO USE HER GIFTS FOR

SOMETHING THAT FROM A

CHRISTIAN STANDPOINT IS

SACRED, MARRIAGE.

Reporter: THEY HOPE

CONGRESS PASSES A BILL

THAT ENSURES MORE

PERMANENT PROTECTION FOR

ALL PEOPLE OF FAITH.

JENNA BROWDER, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: MOR BACKLASH

OVER DISNEY'S DECISION TO

FEATURE A GAY CHARACTER IN

A REMAKE OF "BEAUTY AND

THE BEAST."

THE MINISTRY SAYS IT HAS

GRANTED A SCREENING

LICENSE FOR A 16 AND OLDER

AUDIENCE.

SOME CALLED THE FILM

HOMOSEXUAL PROPAGANDA AND

SAID IT SHOULD NOT BE SEEN

BY CHILDREN.

IN A CBN NEWS TWITTER

POLL, VIEWERS RESPONDED TO

A BIG GAY MOMENT IN

"BEAUTY AND THE BEAST."

70% SAID THEY WOULD

BOYCOTT THE FILM.

MANY SAID THE CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITY SHOULD TAKE A

STAND AGAINST THESE KINDS

OF CHILDREN'S MOVIES.

HEAD TO cbnnews.com TO

LET US KNOW WHY YOU THINK

ABOUT THE FILM.

> STILL AHEAD, HERE ON

CBN "NEWSWATCH," COULD YOU

BE PUTTING YOURSELF AT

RISK FOR CANCER ONE

SPOONFUL AT A TIME?

FIND OUT WHAT THE CULPRIT

IS, AND YOU'LL BE STUNNED

WHEN YOU FIND OUT HOW MUCH

YOU'RE EATING IT.

THAT STORY IS NEXT.

Efrem: SCIENTISTS

BELIEVE TWO-THIRDS OF ALL

CANCERS ARE CAUSED BY OUR

OWN BAD CHOICES, LIKE

SMOKING AND NOT

EXERCISING.

AND THE GRAND DADDY OF

THEM ALL, A POOR DIET.

BECAUSE WHAT YOU EAT CAN

LITERALLY KILL YOU.

LORIE JOHNSON SHOWS US THE

DRAMATIC LINK BETWEEN

CANCER AND SUGAR.

Lorie: A CLEAR

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SUGAR

AND CANCER LEADS

SCIENTISTS TO TWO

CONCLUSIONS: SUGAR USE

CONTRIBUTES TO CANCER, AND

GOING WITHOUT IT CAN SLOW

GROWTH OF THE DISEASE.

100 YEARS AGO, MOST FOLKS

CONSUMED ONLY FOUR POUNDS

OF SUGAR A YEAR.

THAT IS THIS MUCH.

NOW, HOWEVER, THE AVERAGE

PERSON TAKES IN 40 TIMES

THIS AMOUNT, 160 POUNDS OF

SUGAR A YEAR.

THAT'S THIS MUCH.

FOOD MANUFACTURERS ADD

ENORMOUS AMOUNTS OF SUGAR,

USUALLY IN THE FORM OF

HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP,

TO PRODUCTS WE CONSUME ALL

DAY, EVERY DAY.

COFFEE DRINKS AND CEREAL,

SODA AND SNACKS.

EVEN FOODS YOU WOULDN'T

EXPECT, LIKE SPAGHETTI

SAUCE AND PEANUT BUTTER.

THIS TINY CONTAINER OF

YOGURT CONTAINS MORE SUGAR

THAN A CANDY BAR.

NOW SCIENTISTS TELL US

SUGAR DIRECTLY INFLUENCES

CANCER SELLS.

CELLS.

THE AMOUNT WE CONSUME CAN

EITHER FEED THOSE CELLS OR

STARVE THEM.

IN A LANDMARK STUDY,

RESEARCHERS AT U.T.M.D.

CANCER CENTER FED MICE

HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP

IN PERCENTAGES EQUAL TO

WHAT MANY HUMANS CONSUMED.

THOSE MICE DEVELOPED

HIGHER RATES OF LUNG AND

BREAST CANCER.

THE STUDY ALSO TELLS US

SOMETHING ABOUT PEOPLE WHO

ALREADY HAVE CANCER.

ONE RESEARCHER SAID A LOT

OF PATIENTS ARE TOLD IT

DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU

EAT AFTER YOU ARE

DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER.

THIS PRELIMINARY ANIMAL

RESEARCH SUGGESTS THAT IT

DOES MATTER.

IT ABSOLUTELY AMAZES ME

THAT MEDICAL SCIENCE IS

JUST NOW FINDING HIS OUT.

Reporter: FRED

HATFIELD KNOWS FIRST HAND

THAT SUGAR INTACT MATTERS

AFTER A CANCER DIAGNOSIS.

BACK IN 2012, HIS

DIAGNOSIS WAS BASICALLY A

DEATH SENTENCE.

THE DOCTORS GAVE ME

THREE MONTHS TO LIVE

BECAUSE OF WIDE-SPREAD

METATASTIC CANCER IN MY

SKELETAL STRUCTURE.

THREE MONTHS.

THREE DIFFERENT DOCTORS

TOLD ME THAT SAME THING.

IT IS A HORRIBLE,

HORRIBLE FEELING TO HAVE

SOMEONE TELL YOU THAT THE

PERSON YOU LOVE ONLY HAS

THREE MONTHS TO LIVE AND

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE

WITH HIM ANYMORE.

Reporter: THEN FRED

HEARD ABOUT A LOW SUGAR

DIET CALLED THE KETOGENIC

DIET, AND WITH NOTHING TO

LOSE, HE GAVE IT A TRY,

AND TO HIS ASTONISHMENT,

IT WORKED.

AND THE CANCER WAS

GONE, COMPLETELY.

Lorie: FRED'S

RECOVERY DIDN'T SURPRISE

THIS DOCTOR.

HIS TEAM AT THE UNIVERSITY

OF SOUTH FLORIDA

DISCOVERED MICE WITH

HIGHLY AGGRESSIVE

METASTATIC CANCER

CONTINUED LIVING WHEN FED

A KETOGENIC DIET.

WE HAD DRAMATICALLY

INCREASED SURVIVAL WITH

METABOLIC THERAPY.

WE THINK IT IS IMPORTANT

TO GET THIS INFORMATION

OUT.

Lorie: AND IT IS NOT

JUST LAB ANIMALS.

THE DOCTOR HAS SEEN

SIMILAR RESULTS IN HUMANS.

I'VE BEEN IN

CORRESPONDENCE WITH A

NUMBER OF PEOPLE, PROBABLY

AT LEAST A DOZEN PEOPLE,

AND OVER THE LAST YEAR AND

A HALF TO TWO YEARS, AND

ALL OF THEM ARE STILL

ALIVE.

SO -- DESPITE THE ODDS.

SO THIS IS VERY

ENCOURAGING.

Lorie: THE KETOGENIC

DIET MEANS NO SUGAR AND NO

STARCHY CARBOHYDRATES LIKE

BREAD AND POSTT PASTA THAT

CONVERT TO SUGAR.

CANCER CELLS LOVE SUGAR

AND STARCH BECAUSE CANCER

THRIVES ON THE GLUCOSE

FROM THOSE FOODS.

REMOVE THE GLUCOSE AND

STARVE THE CANCER CELLS.

GLUCOSE ALSO FUELS THE

HEALTHY CELLS, BUT IF IT

IS NOT THERE, THEY CAN

SWITCH TO ANOTHER CELLS.

YOUR NORMAL CELLS HAVE

THE ABILITY TO ADAPT FROM

USING GL GLUCOSE TO USING

KYOTO CELLS.

Lorie: SINCE

PROCESSED FOODS HAVE SO

MUCH SUGAR AND STARCH,

PEOPLE FOLLOWING THE

KETOGENIC DIET TEND TO

COOK WHOLE FOODS FROM

SCRARCH.

>SCRATCH.

PIES ISCRATCH.

IT IS CLEAN EATING,

NONE OF THE SUGAR AND THE

SALTS AND THE TRASH FOOD.

Lorie: SO WHEN YOU

COMES TO CANCER, SUGAR IS

CONSIDERED PUBLIC ENEMY

NUMBER ONE.

AVOIDING IT COULD LEAD TO

PREVENTION OR SLOW IT DOWN

IN PEOPLE FIGHTING THE

DISEASE.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: STILL AHEAD,

HE IS THE OWNER OF A

POPULAR CHINESE FOOD

CHAIN.

HIS SECRET TO SUCCESS:

FAITH.

HEAR THAT STORY WHEN WE

RETURN.

PHARMACEUTICA Efrem: IN LESS THAN

20 YEARS, ASIAN

RESTAURANTS HAVE

MULTIPLIED NEARLY

SIX-FOLD.

THE OWNER OF ONE POPULAR

CHINESE CHAIN GIVES JESUS

CHRIST THE CREDIT FOR HIS

BUSINESS SUCCESS.

MUNG FE LI HAS THIS STORY.

Reporter: IT'S 6:00

IN THE MORNING, AND THE

DAY HAS ALREADY STARTED AT

PETER CHANG'S.

THE KITCHEN IS FULL OF

VEGETABLES AND ENERGY.

FROM WASHINGTON, D.C. TO

MARYLAND AND VIRGINIA,

JUNG PUNG LE, ALSO KNOWN

AS PETER CHANG, HAS MADE A

NAME FOR HIMSELF.

HOWEVER, HE SAYS WHEN HE

FIRST MOVED TO THE UNITED

STATES, HE WAS JUST A

SMALL FISH IN A BIG POND.

WHEN I CAME TO THE U.S.

IN 2001, I WAS SO YOUNG.

I HAD MANY DREAMS, SUCH AS

OPENING UP MY OWN

RESTAURANT.

I WAS SO JEALOUS OF

OTHERS, BUT I KNEW ALL I

COULD DO WAS TO BE PATIENT

AND LEARN FROM OTHERS.

Reporter:

HARD-WORKING, HE

CONSTANTLY PRACTICED HIS

SKILLS AND LEARNED FROM

LEADING CHEFS IN THE

FIELD.

HE LOVED COOKING.

I ALWAYS LOOKED FOR

CHANCES TO BECOME BETTER

IN COOKING.

THIS IS ALL I KNOW.

IN ORDER TO MAKE A LIVING

AND IMPROVE MY LIFE IN THE

UNITED STATES, I NEEDED TO

PUSH MYSELF HARDER.

THAT'S THE CHINESE SPIRIT.

Reporter: FOR CHANG,

COOKING IS AN ART FORM.

IN 2011, HE SUCCESSFULLY

OPENED UP HIS FIRST

RESTAURANT.

HE NAMED IT PETER CHANG,

AND THE QUALITY OF FOOD

AND SERVICE ARE THE CORE

OF HIS BUSINESS.

MEANWHILE, HE CONSTANTLY

CREATES NEW AUTHENTIC

CHINESE DISHES TO ATTRACT

MORE COSTUMERS.

PETER CHANG'S BUSINESS WAS

SO POPULAR, EVEN A FORMAL

CHINESE PRESIDENT PAID A

VISIT TO HIS RESTAURANT.

IN 2016, HE WAS NOMINATED

FOR THE JAMES SPEAR

FOUNDATION, THAT'S A CHEF

AWARD.

TODAY CHANG HAS MORE THAN

10 RESTAURANTS WHERE

COSTUMERS ARE OFFERED MORE

THAN JUST FOOD.

I HAVE BEEN A CHEF FOR

30 YEARS.

I WANT TO INTRODUCE

CHINESE CULTURE, TOO.

ED FOOD IS THE BEST WAY TO

DO SO.

WHEN PEOPLE COME TO MY

RESTAURANT, I WANT THEM TO

FEEL WELCOME.

Reporter: PETER CHANG

TODAY IS A VERY SUCCESSFUL

BUSINESS OWNER.

ALSO, HE IS A MAN OF FAME.

WHEN ASKED ABOUT HIS FAITH

JOURNEY, HE IS VERY

GRATEFUL ABOUT WHAT THE

BIBLE AND THE CHURCH HAVE

TAUGHT HIM.

I AM ALWAYS TOUCHED BY

WHAT THE CHURCH TAUGHT ME,

ESPECIALLY ON

GRATEFULNESS.

I'M STILL LEARNING AND

SEARCHING BY READING THE

BIBLE.

THE WORDS OF JESUS GUIDE

MY LIFE.

AS A SINNER, I NEED TO

OBEY AND BE HUMBLE.

Reporter: CHANG TRIES

TO TEACH HIS EMPLOYEES THE

SAME PRINCIPLES.

THE SCRIPTURES ARE VERY

IMPORTANT TO HIM.

CHANG IS SUCH A GOOD

MAN.

HE IS VERY HONEST AND

PATIENT IN TEACHING US

VERY USEFUL THINGS.

HE NEVER ALLOWS US TO

FORGET THE IMPORTANCE OF

BEING GRATEFUL.

I LOVE TO WORK WITH HIM.

Reporter: PETER CHANG

IS IN THE PROCESS OF

OPENING UP MORE

RESTAURANTS IN OTHER

STATES.

FIRST IS NEW YORK.

HE WANTS MORE AND MORE

AMERICANS TO FALL IN LOVE

WITH CHINESE FOOD AND

CHINESE CULTURE.

MORE IMPORTANTLY, HE

BELIEVES THE LORD WILL

CONTINUE TO GUIDE HIM TO

GREATER SUCCESS.
