9:02 am
>> like a jimmy dean commercial. >> let's go inside, natalie is standing by at the news desk with a check of the headlines. natalie? >> good morning to you guys once again. we begin with the widening investigation into that prostitution scandal involving members of the secret service. nbc's mark potter is in cartagena, colombia. mark, good morning. >> good morning, natalie. officials say investigators have finished questioning maids and other workers at the hotel behind me, where the scandal unfolded. and are now trying to find the prostitutes, allegedly hired by members of the president's advance security team. facebook pictures have now been published in news reports that say she is one of the women that investigators are hoping to talk to. but because there is no official confirmation of that, nbc news is blurring her face. though information is sparse, some cartagena locals are talking. cartagena cab driver juan pena says he is, quote, pretty sure
9:03 am
she is one of two women who were together in his car a week ago. after he was called to the hotel caribe to pick them up as they were being escorted out of the building. neighbors in the area where pena said he dropped her off confirmed the woman in the photo does live there. pena says the woman, whose tham we are not revealing, told him she'd had sex for money at the hotel with a man who said he worked on president obama's security detail. then argued with him over the price. she said she wanted $250. but the man only gave her $50 and shooed her out of his room. pena says the woman told him she pounded on the door and created a scene in the hallway. attracting hotel security, and the police. a u.s. official has told nbc news the scandal exploded after a prostitute who claimed she was shared by two agents got in a heated dispute over how much she should be paid. representative peter king is regularly briefed on the investigation. >> right now, they're trying to
9:04 am
locate the 11 women. they have the names, the faces, addresses. >> reporter: two sources with knowledge of the investigation have identified two of the agents who are separating from the agency in the wake of the scandal as 48-year-old david randall chaney, and greg stokes. both high level managers based in washington. nbc news spoke with attorney lawrence berger who confirms he is representing both men. berger said he couldn't comment on why chaney was employing counsel, but he said stokes is going to vigorously defend himself in the administrative process that is available. berger said he still considers both men to be part of the secret service, and suggests they are leaving voluntarily but not under good circumstances. and he pointedly said, whoever is leaking the names from inside the secret service is probably breaking the law. and speaking of facebook, it turns out that one of those agents now separating from the secret service, david chaney, actually guarded sarah palin during the 2008 presidential
9:05 am
campaign. he posted a photo on facebook and wrote this comment, i was really checking her out, if you know what i mean. last night on fox news palin responded saying, check this out, bodyguard, you're fired. natalie? >> all right. mark potter in cartagena, colombia. the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot and killed unarmed teen trayvon martin appears in a florida courtroom today. this is a live picture of george zimmerman. he's charged with second degree murder in the shooting that he says was self-defense. his attorneys are asking that he be granted bail today. president obama has a six-point lead over presumptive republican candidate mitt romney in the latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll. but that poll also shows the president's biggest weakness, the economy, is ronaldny's strong point. a tempting discover put an airport security screener to the test. tsa officer don williams found 95 $100 bills in an envelope at the dallas-ft. worth airport. he was able to contact the passenger who lost the money and returned it because he said, you

"today's daily dose" is brought to you by yoplait, it's so good. this morning on "today's daily dose," protecting your skin during summer. a study released earlier this month by the mayo clinic found women age 18 to 39 are eight times more likely to develop melanoma than they were 40 years ago. how do you minimize your risk? that's the big question. kate white is the editor in chief of cosmopolitan which took a look at this issue and dr. deborah wattenberg is a dermatologist. deborah i'll start off with you. these results are incredible, but this dramatic increase from what we would have seen 40 years ago, in a nutshell, what's the problem here? >> women in this age group tend to engage in behaviors that are considered risky. they want to be tan.
9:17 am
they go to the beach and don't wear sunscreen or try to lay out way too much. and they're also going to suntanning salons. and the rise in suntanning salons has been thought to be one of the reasons the incidence of melanoma is rising. what's interesting is while the incidence is rising the mortality rate is decreasing. and that's thought to be due to education and awareness. >> how much more dangerous are the indoor tanning beds than the natural sun? >> so a tan, however you get it is bad for your skin. there's no such thing as a healthy tan. suntanning salons are very dangerous and our organization has actually put uv light on to the list of cancer causing carcinogens. these rays are very concentrated and increase the risk of burning. they cause skin cancer, sun damage, brown spots and wrinkling. and people are just unaware of the effects of this. >> it's interesting. you think that people, women because we're talking specifically about women, are just unaware or do they just get intoxicated by this notion of a glowing tan? >> i think it's both. i think a lot of women know now
9:18 am
that sun burning is bad. but they think tanning is okay. also, tanning salons we found in our investigation that they lie to women and tell them these are safe rays. but at the same time, women sometimes override what they know because it feels good to be in the sun. they feel thinner when they're fan. all those factors. >> even though these women say it feels good one of the intriguing things in your study is that it can be addictive like cigarettes and other things that people fight to wean themselves off of. >> right. in some people the endorphin rush that you get from a tan is addictive and so when you're not tanning you may feel irritable, jittery. >> pulling you back in. >> right. you have to go cold turkey and just get out of the sun. >> obviously, you're a doctor, when you're talking about something that could be something that's an addiction for people, what's the best advice? >> you have to actually admit to yourself that tanning is bad. that's the first step to stopping the process. because if you think that it's
9:19 am
okay then you will continue to do id. >> flat-out bad completely. >> you have to be protected from the sun regardless of what your skin color is. it doesn't really matter. and you need to apply sunscreen regularly. if you engage in this behavior and continually lie out you're going to put yourself at risk. if you decide to make the change and decide you want to get rid of the sun damage there are so many different things that you can do that include topical agents like moisture aers and sunscreens and laser procedures and retinoids and products like that. >> it's interesting beyond the tanning booth or obvious exposure at the beach, even flying on a plane? >> right. very intense rays there. driving a car, studies show that cancer, skin cancer is more prove length on the left side of the body. even sitting outside under an umbrella, rays can bounce up from the sand, or the sidewalk, if you're in a sidewalk cafe. you just have to be wearing protection. when you're outdoors. >> because even if they're not in direct sunlight, deborah, so
9:20 am
many women wearing cosmetics, we've got spf 15 at a minimum in foundation even. >> yeah so the light that comes through the windows is dangerous. and people need to work on their skin all the time. people often get misled by the fact that they're putting on a moisturizer that has an spf in it or a makeup, because it's not necessarily enough. and you need to apply large quantities in order to get the -- >> slather it on. this is one thing we should overindulge in. and there are foods, as well, that can protect us. >> that's true. well tomatoes and chocolate, they have antioxidants, and that seem to lessen the absorption of the rays. but that doesn't make up for wearing protection. >> absolutely. start with protection and eat chocolate all the time. bad medical advice. >> the combination. >> it's an intriguing article certainly and no matter how dark or fair your skin is, advice you can always use. >> sunscreen for everyone. thank you kate, thank you deborah. coming up, stay stylish while going green. but up next, we may lock eyes,
