4:30 am
here for the good doctor, next. "sanjay gupta" starts right now. >> hi, everyone. thanks so much for joining us. i'm brook baldwin in today for dr. sanjay gupta. ahead this half hour, kidding ourselves. the hidden power of self-deception and why lying to yourself may actually not be such a bad idea at all. but first the rapidly spreading heroin epidemic. the biggest police force, new york city, just this week said all officers would start to carry a drug called naloxone. and this medication can actually reverse a heroin overdose with virtually no side effects. first let's take a quick look at how powerful this medicine can be. here is dr. gupta. >> what you're watching is shocking. a heroin addict named liz
4:31 am
overdosing. that night she was with adam wigglesworth and louise vincent. they volunteer with a program in greensboro, north carolina, that provides clean needles and other assistance to addicts. >> she seemed to be pretty unresponsive and we were noticing bluing of the lips, lack of oxygen, so her breathing had become quite shallow. >> well, when someone's not breathing or responding to any sort of stimulus, you give them breath and at that time i usually administer it. >> now watch what happens next. >> we gave her about 60 units of narcan. >> narcan, also known as naloxone can reverse the effects of heroin and other drugs like oxycodone. another sternly rub, another shot of narcan. >> giving her the rest of the
4:32 am
full cc. >> reporter: and finally liz begins to come around. >> liz? you okay? you went out. we're giving you mouth to mouth resuscitation. we've given you some narcan, because you overdosed. can you sit up? >> yes. >> my goodness. dr. gupta with that. i can tell you that after being revived liz made it to rehab and when we last checked in on her, she was doing well. as you saw, liz was saved by friends but the idea is to get this medicine into as many hands as possible, and not just new york city, but other police departments are trying it. the rhode island state police began carrying this drug just about a month ago, and state trooper james deangelo has already put it to good use. trooper, welcome. >> thank you for having me. >> so from what i understand, you were actually the first
4:33 am
person in your force to administer naloxone. what was that like? what happened? >> that's correct. it was a wonderful experience. this past memorial day around 11:00 in this morning i had the occasion of observing a local police officer hop into a pd on a motor vehicle stop, at which time i went to assist him with that stop to make sure he was okay, if he need any assistance, at which time he mentioned he had a passenger in the vehicle which he had stopped that was unresponsive. i attempted to make contact with that party and he was, in fact, unresponsive, head staring -- eyes staring up at the ceiling, eyes rolled back in his head, very shallow breathing, wasn't responsive. i asked the officer if he had been issueded naloxone or narcan, at which time the department hadn't.
4:34 am
i went to my cruiser and grabbed my naloxone kit and administered a dose through his nasal passage of the naloxone, at which time it sustained his breathing enough where he didn't go into full respiratory failure, giving enough time for the rescue personnel to arrive on scene and revive him intravenously through their pushes of the narcan. >> trooper deangelo, with all the good of course comes the bad. you have all these critics what are saying that this will absolutely enable addicts, that law enforcement is supposed to stop them from using illegal drugs. what's your response to that? >> i wholeheartedly disagree with that. i think the layman doesn't understand that it's an illness, it's a disease, and we're able to give these people a second chance, and relapse is, in fact, a part of recovery, so i'm happy
4:35 am
that i was able to give this individual, this gentleman a second chance at recovery. >> state trooper james d'angelo from providence, rhode island, thank you so much, sir, for coming on. we appreciate it. and coming up, putting a price tag on miracles, miracle drugs that is. some oncologists are saying it's just too much. ng... ...because it was easier to smoke than it was to quit. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it's a non-nicotine pill. chantix reduced the urge for me to smoke. it actually caught me by surprise. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these, stop chantix and see your doctor right away as some could be life threatening. tell your doctor if you have a history of heart or
4:36 am
blood vessel problems, or if you develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. use caution when driving or operating machinery. common side effects include nausea, trouble sleeping and unusual dreams. i did not know what it was like to be a non-smoker. but i do now. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. you wouldn't have it she any other way.our toes. but your erectile dysfunction - it could be a question of blood flow. cialis tadalafil for daily use helps you be ready anytime the moment's right.
4:37 am
you can be more confident in your ability to be ready. and the same cialis is the only daily ed tablet approved to treat ed and symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently or urgently. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, as it may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess. side effects may include headache, upset stomach, delayed backache or muscle ache. to avoid long-term injury, get medical help right away for an erection lasting more than four hours. if you have any sudden decrease or loss in hearing or vision, or any allergic reactions like rash, hives, swelling of the lips, tongue or throat, or difficulty breathing or swallowing, stop taking cialis and get medical help right away. ask your doctor about experiencing cialis for daily use and a free 30-tablet trial. and it feels like your lifeate revolves around your symptoms, ask your gastroenterologist about humira adalimumab.
4:38 am
humira has been proven to work for adults who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief, and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal events, such as infections, lymphoma, or other types of cancer, have happened. blood, liver and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure have occurred. before starting humira, your doctor should test you for tb. ask your doctor if you live in or have been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. tell your doctor if you have had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have symptoms such as fever, fatigue, cough, or sores. you should not start humira if you have any kind of infection. ask your gastroenterologist about humira today. remission is possible.
4:39 am
this weekend kicks off the world's biggest scientific meeting on cancer. we'll hear about many experimental treatments, but for many cancer doctors not to mention patients, it seems we're kind of at a crossroads because many of new cancer drugs cost tens of thousands of dollars for one round of treatment, some more than $100,000, so some doctors are actually starting to say it's just too much. 57-year-old barbara hayne was diagnosed with breast cancer eight months ago. before the shock of the diagnosis wore off, she was hit with another one. the cost of the drugs her doctor prescribed to treat her cancer. >> i asked her if there were any other cheaper options that would do the same thing for me. >> her doctor says this happens frequently. >> all we can do at this point is pick the least costly agent that we have available to us that we know is going to be equally efficacious. >> in 2012 the food and drug
4:40 am
administration approved 12 new cancer drugs, many costing around $100,000 a year, joining other big price tags on the shelf. levac, a drug approved to treat leukemia, it cost up to $30,000 when it was approved. now, more than 90. tucigna runs about $13,000 annually, also to treat leukemia. >> there are cancer drugs so transformative, such break-throughs, their prices are lower than might be justified but there are some drugs that do not deliver as much value relative to their price. >> two years ago, doctors at memorial sloane kettering, dr. zahadis' hospital, decided not to prescribe the new colon drug because it cost over $11,000 a month, and according
4:41 am
to the if, da it only extend survival by six weeks on average compared to others. eventually sinofi cut the price in half. not just doctors but insurance companies are speaking out against these soaring costs. >> when you look at the six-figure prices of specialty drugs, you come away with the conclusion that the pricing is anything that pharmaceutical companies and manufacturers can get away with. >> for their part, drugmakers say the medicines are expensive because they cost so much to develop. one study put it at nearly $5 billion on average to bring a new drug to the market. >> we need an insurance system that's there for patients when they need it. they pay into a system and the expectation and the promises that it will be there and provide the kind of coverage that patients need. >> in the end, barbara hayne was prescribed a cheaper drug within her budget. she'll be on it for the next five years. the stress of affording high-priced drugs at bay for now.

we all miss reality and this can be our perception of distance or maybe of time passing but these little gradeiations in perception are actually much more widespread and subject to change than we realize. these acts of self-deception infiltrate and influence every major aspect of our lives. joseph halinan is the author of "kidding ourselves." joe, welcome. >> thanks for having me here. talk to me about this notion of self-perception. give us examples of how we do this in everyday life. >> the easy one, report cards. researchers found that when they ask people, for instance, just to remember their grades in high school, a funny thing happened. they exaggerated their grades. up to 90% of the people overremember their gpas from high school. but the interesting thing is not just that they think they're smarter than they actually were but they found when they go back that the memory varies according to the grade received and the worse the grade, the worse the

with all the recent attention on food poisoning outbreaks, this next headline definitely caught my eye. the cdc and health officials in new york city have this new way to track down outbreaks. take a look at the reviews on yelp. here is what they did. they scoured reviews for these words, sick, vomit, diarrhea and food poisoning. if they saw a cluster of these kinds of words, bad reviews within a short time window, they followed up with an investigation. it was just a nine-month-test run. they say they had three outbreaks that hadn't been reported. cat katzman is an awesome guide to new york city restaurants.
4:57 am
cat, ooh. that's my first thought. thought two is can you just do this on your own? >> it would be highly effective in that if, as i did, you look at twitter for foods like barf and diarrhea, you never want to eat again, at home, in a restaurant, nowhere. tas little more complicated than doing that. you can go to yelp yourself and look at reviews and see if anybody mentions getting sick and do a little research from there. what they did is a little more complicated than that. they ended up sending e-mails or private messages to the vaif yous people that made the complaints, asked them if they had gotten in touch with a restaurant or the department of public health and then offered a phone number to discuss their individual cases. there was a lot of legwork that was done after the initial study. what they found out is there were patterns around certain restaurants. they were able to identify a few key dishes that had been served and a few places where they were
4:58 am
served and find commonalities from there. from there the protocol is for the department of health to go to those restaurants and tell them what's going on and make some changes. >> that has to irk restaurants, right? they can't be loving this. >> they want this data -- first of all, they want the data. they don't want to be responsible for having the next typhoid mary on their hands. they don't want people to go out in the world and say, in a very public way, i got sick in this place and tell the world. they want them to tell the restaurant. there was a case a couple weeks ago where two mets players fingered a particular restaurant saying, hey, we got food poisoning at this restaurant. it turned out that wasn't possible, that they had eaten somewhere else. because of the public megaphone on social media, they were able to spread the word far and wide. restaurants do want this data. they are in the business of hospitality and making people happy and feeding them, they don't want anybody getting sick. at the same time they would infinitely rather you tell them
4:59 am
and not the whole world. >> yes. here is what i want to know. you get to eat and write about it for a living. have you ever been in a restaurant, seen something and thought, hmm, good-bye? >> no, pretty much an ex-boyfriend or a long line. >> men, not foon. i see your priorities. >> if i'm in the middle of a meal and something tastes a little off, feels a little off, that's the point you're not a complaining customer. they want to know if something is not right. honestly, whether the wine is off -- they don't want to be serving that wine to a lot of people. if something tastes a little funky, they want the feedback and people need to not be shy. while you're there, say something. >> i'm saying something to you now. can we please see your neck las? can you hold it up for me? cheeseburger cheeseburger.
