8:00 am
morning, everyone. i'm jeff glor. >> i'm rebecca jarvis. >> these are just some of the stories we'll be bringing you on "cbs this morning: saturday." >> another shoe was dropped in the sex secret service scandal. >> this new code of conduct is effective immediately. the secret service moves to change its culture of bad behavior. the new rules now specifically prohibit patronization of nonrepresentable establishments. >> we have no information that terrorist organizes are plotting attacks inside the u.s. >> but the terrorist leader and
8:01 am
his organization were known to favor symbolic dates. the main concern now is lone wolf terrorists who can move undetected and strike without warning. >> it was so massive. we were just in shock. >> remembrances planned this weekend across alabama for the more than 20 0 people who died one year ago in that state alone. >> we are here to remember the ones that have passed on from this tornado. we're here to remember the ones that survived this tornado. they're young, they're fresh, they're hollywood. >> from the moment she said "i do" one year ago, kate middleton has charmed england and the world. >> it's just a good old love story. >> those stories -- >> a bombing that has blown syria's cease-fire to pieces. >>. >> the senator turned to him and he said, i never knew anything about that money from bunny
8:02 am
mel melon. did you? >> and so much more on "cbs this morning: saturday," april 28, >> and so much more on "cbs this morning: saturday," april 28, 2012. captioning funded by cbs that guy you just saw doing that thing, apparently that was a yo-yo. >> amazing. >> we'll explain more when we take you behind the headlines later in the program. also in morning, there's a possible breakthrough for the 37 million americans who suffer from migraines. i'm one of these people. i actually had a splitting migraine yesterday. it's fascinating what science can tell us. believe it or not, it actually has a lot to do with ice cream shake and brain freeze. >> you don't have one yet this morning, do you? >> no. i came in saturday morning. i'm always in a good mood saturday morning. also very expensive statue dating back to 500 bc, what would you do -- this is in your home potentially. maybe not. but it falls down and breaks.
8:03 am
what do you do? >> call the insurance agent? >> right. we'll talk about that this morning. it was a photo shoot. nobody's taking responsibility. we'll talk to the owner about why she's filed a lawsuit and who she thinks destroyed her rare work of art. >> insurance or a lawsuit, that was the second option. we begin with new developments in the secret service sex scandal. the agency is moving quickly to put its record of bad behavior behind it. they've issued a strict new guidelines. whit johnson is at the white house with more. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you. new enhanced standards were sent out to all secret service personnel and are effective immediately. it's the latest effort by the agency to take control of the scandal amid new questions about a culture of inappropriate behavior. following the columbian prostitution scandal, the internal memo says, consider your conduct through the lens of the past several weeks. among the enhanced standards, foreign nationals cannot enter
8:04 am
employees' hotel rooms, excluding hotel staff and official counterparts. pa rtronizing at nonrepresentabe establishments. reports of partying, drinking and inappropriate have extended to four countries. the secret service is looking into those reports but has yet to launch formal allegations. >> nothing changes in washington if heads don't roll. >> reporter: friday on "cbs this morning," senator grassley said officials must be held accountable but stopped short of calling for secret service head mark sul ran to step down. as lawmakers demand a wider investigation, harry reid had a different take on the culture of the agency. >> if it turns out this is a recurring problem, what do you think should be done? >> hire more females.
8:05 am
>> reporter: next week, more than 100 sec receipt service personnel are required to take a ethics and law enforcement training course. >> whit johnson in washington, thank you. and also in washington is andrew o'connell, ceo of guidepost solution. >> former secret service agent and federal prosecutor. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> what do you make of the new rules? >> i think they put in principles that have been and for a long time in the secret service. the secret service goes back 150 years and the culture is really a culture of professionalism. and i think the american people have seen that for a long time. >> andrew, have i to ask you, do you really think those principles have been in place, given what we've seen over the past couple of weeks? >> yes, they have been. general principles have been in place. the specifics that you see in
8:06 am
the newly released guidelines are new. principles aren't new. agents have been expected to follow those principles since the beginning of the secret service. and i think they have. you know -- >> but why have they not been followed in colombia and potentially other places? >> well, i mean, again, there are allegations. i don't know what -- i have no firsthand knowledge of what happened down there. and there's going to be an investigation of what happened. but certainly over the last 150 years these principles have been followed. it's just that from time to time, as with any agency, people use bad judgment, they make mistakes and it gets investigated. hopefully something is learned from it. >> these new rules include no boozy nights, no racy bars, and in addition you have this chaperone issue where chaperone will accompany secret service agents. how are the agents going to react to that? >> that is certainly something that's new and surprising to see that, in effect, you'll have somewhat of a chaperone on these going to foreign countries with
8:07 am
the agents. i think the agents, for the most part that have been doing their jobs for a long time, aren't going to be affected by having somebody looking over their shoulder. >> are they offended by it? are they offended by it? >> i suppose some who -- i suppose some would be. the professionals and you hope they're all professionals, i don't know if offended is the right word, but certainly concern that this is necessary. >> andrew, does it make a difference that ethics classes online versus in person? >> i think it does. you have to remember, this is enhanced guidelines. the secret service has in-person training from the day you're sworn in, training throughout your career, you're constantly being trained. these principles are supposed to be reinforced through that one-on-one training. this online training supplements that training. >> you made it from the secret service to the private sector, forming your own security group. do you think for these members who have stepped down, who have
8:08 am
been asked to leave the secret service, that that's a possibility for them? they can go into private work, perhaps make more money and work for public companies, private companies in the united states? >> it really depends on what the outcome of the investigation is. certainly those with criminal histories can't have the type of company we have, get licenses for investigations and security work. but for improper conduct, the lapses in judgment, i don't think that's held against most forever. certainly, we need to see exactly what happened, who did what. that will really determine, you know, what the opportunities are for these agents if they leave the secret service. >> andrew o'connell, thank you for joining us. we appreciate it. >> thank you. tuesday is the first anniversary of the daring navy s.e.a.l. raid on osama bin laden's come bound in abbottabad, pakistan, that killed the leader. with that in mind the fbi and homeland security have issued an alert urging state and local police to increase their
8:09 am
vigilance against possible terror plots next week. joining us from washington is juan zarate. good morning. >> good morning. >> is there cause to be concerned this week? >> authorities don't have information about a particular plot or series of threats that are imminent, but certainly an anniversary like the death of bin laden should raise awareness and certainly does raise chatter on jihadi websites. the anniversary where authorities want people to be vigilant. >> how was the threat from al qaeda changed in the past year? >> well, jeff, the threat from al qaeda has been changing over the last five years. it's less centralized. you have the regional groups in places like yemen, somalia, north africa, playing a stronger and bigger role. you have inspired individuals -- we've seen this in the u.s. we've also seen it recently in france in the attack in toulouse. so it has many platforms in which to attack. >> but it's a weaker
8:10 am
organization, you think? >> absolutely. i mean, there's no question the al qaeda of 2012 is very different from the al qaeda of 2001. i think the u.s. and other authorities have done a very good job of decimating the organization, its key leadership, and they're much less able to attack like we saw on 9/11. but it's still a threat because the ideology is out there and a lot of groups willing to attack not just in the regions but across the world. >> and the mebdz of al qaeda have less respect for zawahiri than bin laden? >> i think that's correct but he comes back from dating back to the days of the egyptian jihad. it's not beloved but certainly respected. you've seen this with allegiance pledged by some regional groups to him and to al qaeda core. he's still out there and still out there in an important way when egypt in many ways is in play for jihadis. >> with-k we talk about the lone
8:11 am
wolf threat. is the lone wolf threat bigger overseas or domestically? >> i think this is what scares authorities the most, jeff, because the lone wolf is the actor who is off the radar screen, isn't necessarily tied organizationally or hierarchically but is inspired to attack fellow citizens. you've seen instances of this not just in the u.s. but in france and uk. it's really a problem in the western world, where you have individuals who have been radicalized by folks anwar, who is dead. and you've seen people like zawahiri try to inspire people to kill their fellow citizens. >> al qaeda is clearly weaker now. what do you think the u.s. has to do in the year ahead now, in year two after bin laden dies, to make sure that al qaeda stays
8:12 am
weak? >> jeff, i think there are a couple key things. one, maintaining pressure on the key al qaeda leadership. i think one of the reasons al qaeda core has lost control of the movement, less able to plan spectacular attacks, is they're losing their bench, they've lost key leaders, bin laden key among them and others. we have to go after zawahiri, after the remaining core leadership. that will see the end of al qaeda, frankly, as we've known it. the other thing we have to do is maintain pressure on regional groups, helping our allies who are taking the fight to these regional groups. for example, in east africa where the kenyans, the ugandans and ethiopians are attacking the al shabab movement, we need to be there to help. we need to be there in yemen as supporting actors and i think that would be very effective. >> are we closing to getting zawahiri? >> i think we are. the al qaeda leadership is being very security-savvy.
8:13 am
if he pops his head up, that's an opportunity for us to find him and no doubt authorities are looking for him. >> always good to see you. thank you. >> thank you. we'll switch gears a bit now and talk about the soaring cost of air travel just in time for your summer vacation. fares are expected to jump 3%. that's on top of the 20% since 2010. believe me, a lot of tickets have gone up more than that. and the airlines have already managed to raise ticket prices three times this year. so, with the next bump likely to come just before memorial day, also the attack of these mega mergers, americans/us airways possibly getting together. what a vacationer to do? joining us from madison, wisconsin, the man with the answer, peter greenberg, cbs news travel editor. great to have you with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> what is pushing airfares higher? >> well, believe it or not, it's not just fuel or the fear of fuel prices going higher. it's about capacity. the airlines are cutting flights, cutting routes.
8:14 am
when you have that fewer planes equals fewer flights and seats, the law of supply and demand kicks in and airfares have no place to go but up. in some culprit is the attacks. in the united kingdom that can add $100 to $150 to the cost of your ticket. that plus seasonal increase in fuel prices talks about that. >> when you talk about supply and demand, all of a sudden have you this influx of demand usually over the summer. is that one of the reasons we might see prices go higher. >> we have already seen prices domestically 19% year over year, overseas flights 22% higher. there's no reason to indicate it's going to go lower. it's going to go higher. >> you heard it here from peter greenberg. thank you for the great news. i want to talk to you, peter, about the u.s. air/american potential deal, it's in the works right now. it might not go through by the summer. it probably won't. will it impact prices?
8:15 am
>> well, you say it's in the works. no, it's just been announced. us air just announced it was interested. american airlines has the exclusive right to take itself out of bankruptcy for a number of months. it's a long way to go before we see anything like this happen. but if it does happen with a big emphasis on the word "if" no airline merges with another airline to increase their flights, to increase their routes. it's about shrinking capacity. if that happens, fares will go up again. >> how do we shrink our ticket price? when is the best time to book, peter? >> normally i'd say between 45 and 60 days out. ist not about the time. it's actually about how you structure the route of where you want to go. if you want to go from los angeles to hawaii, that's an expensive ticket. however, you change your routing. it's almost counter intuitive. a ticket los angeles/las vegas/hawaii that might be checker. or go through london, go through another european capital and fly
8:16 am
from there overseas. >>al great information. peter greenberg, thanks for joining us. >> you got it. more headlines this morning. the united nations' two-week-old cease-fire is not holding and firing this morning. it's been reported this morning that rebels attacked a syrian outpost on mediterranean coast and antigovernment protests continue. thousands rallied in cities across syria. they accuse ba shash al assad's regime of corruption and oppression. both u.s. and china are refusing reports on that a prominent chinese dissident has taken up residency at u.s. embassy in beijing. chen guangcheng. the white house told congress yesterday it may approve the sale of 66 advanced
8:17 am
f-16s to the island nation taiwan which china claims as territory. the jets would represent a major upgrade to taiwan air force. detroit tigers' outfielder delmon young is free on $5,000 bail after being arrested for an alleged hate crime in new york early friday. he walked out of court last night, too late to rejoin the tigers for a game at yankee stadium. he has apologized for the incident that led to his arrest, a scuffle during which he allegedly shouted antisematic slurs. honestly, some of our favorite pictures from yesterday. space shuttle "enterprise" is in new york city in preparation for its move to new home. it arrived at jfk perched apart the nasa 747. in june it will be transferred by barge to the u.s. intrepid museum on the hudson. that will open in july. >> did you see it pass overhead?
8:18 am
>> i was flying -- or in a train. >> you're always on the road. lonnie quinn, did you see it? >> you bet ya. they had special clearance to fly 1,000 to 3,000 feet, by the landmarks in the city. cool stuff. and mother nature cooperative because if that fly-over had occurred 12 hours earlier. spring sputters in the northeast with temperatures on the cool side. the tennessee valley, meanwhile, you will see some storms today. and the rockies are still in winter. how is that even possible? let me show you how. you've got this spin. see this counter clockwise spin around montana and wyoming. what it does is pulls in air from canada. that's where the air is cold enough for snow. that doesn't necessarily just give you snow. how do you get snow out of that? you still have to make that air mass rise. by going over a mountain range, no way to get air over a mountain without making it go up in the sky.
8:19 am
consequently gets compressed. colorado, wyoming, 1 to 2 feet of the white stuff. good enough. happy saturday, everybody. jeff, rebecca, all yours. >> this weather has been krae crazy. one day 70, the next day snow. >> i was in jamaica. it was warmer in new york city than jamaica, the day i was there. >> must be nice. >> oh, please. interesting thing has happened in britain. the monarchy is more popular than it used to be. we ask the question why. one year ago tomorrow, prince william married kate middleton. >> does it seem like it's been a
8:20 am
year? >> it's -- the time flies. a new survey shows they and she in particular make the royal family more likeable. a few more on kate and her remarkably smooth transformation into a royal from charlie d'agata in london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, jeff. it is william and kate's anniversary, right? try telling that to the papers this morning, although a few happened to mention the prince. the obsession is all about kate, catherine one year on and kate a royal odyssey this year. >>-i, catherine elizabeth take thee william -- >> reporter: from this day forward, so it goes, everything changed for kate middleton. kate, the commoner, has become more like catherine the great. the duchess of cambridge has been transformed from blushing bride to royal ambassador.
8:21 am
>> they reinvented ordinary. she's a middle england woman, you know, no fancy designers. very, very understanding of this country and the pressure it's under. >> reporter: when prince william went away for military service, kate stepped up her royal duties, joining the queen on her official engagements. >> duchess is very much the queen's companion on that trip. of course, you had the ladies there. >> reporter: that was a visit to a london department store, with the queen and prince charles' wife, camilla. kate's confidence, if a little shaky, as a public speaker came soon after. >> thank you for accepting me as a patron. thank you for inviting me here today. >> reporter: the only slight hiccup to a picture perfect year came from kate's little sister, pippa.
8:22 am
there is one royal duty that's still outstanding. rumors of a royal baby reached fever pitch this week when a broading prince william was seen holding the baby of a soldier at a charity event. one onlooker had the nerve to ask if they were practicing. on that note, the palace won't say how or where william and kate will be celebrating their anniversary, but we do know it will be in private, probably on the queen's estate of balmoral. >> good for them. coming up, five years after she vanished, we are taking a turn and looking at why scotland yard believes madeleine mccann could still be alive. good news for 37 million americans this morning. how brain freeze might solve the mystery of migraines. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." ,,,,,,,,,,
8:23 am
8:24 am
8:25 am
lots of twists and turns this week in the trial of former presidential candidate john edwards. it was a tough week on the stand for andrew young. >> what a mess this is. >> yeah. >> and what a bit of a mess this trial has been at times. we're going to take a look back at his testimony this week. why it may have backfired. jean is here. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." ,,,,,,,,

♪ ♪ just a perfect moment just before the dawning city lights ♪ there you go, perfect picture morning in cincinnati, also here in new york. welcome back to "cbs this morning: saturday." i'm jeff glor. >> i'm rebecca jarvis. we're asking the question this morning, can maddie, madeleine mccann, still be alive? scotland yard believes the missing british girl could be. they released a picture of how she would look today after five years of vanishing during a vacation in portugal. >> if you're one of 37 million americans who suffers from march grains, jarvis you do -- >> i do. not fun. >> slurpies, shakes and ice
8:31 am
cream floats might hold the key to your cure. researchers believe what we call brain freeze might actually solve some of the mysteries of these headaches. we'll explain very soon. also, the fake dentist with only a sixth grade education who did root canals. we'll explain when we go behind the headlines coming up in a little bit. first our top story. the john edwards trial. testimony resumes on monday. with the wife of andrew young, edwards' former friend and campaign aide taking the stand. her husband wrapped up his testimony on friday. he was supposed to be the prosecution star witness. but he seemed to melt down under cross-examination. here's jim axelrod. >> reporter: in his fifth day on the stand and second on cross-examination, defense attorneys hammered ang drew young, accusing him of bilking john edwards' donors of hundreds of thousands of money. to follow that money, attorney
8:32 am
abby lowell referred to amended tax returns from 2008, filed by young. in them, young said he spent $56,000 on rielle hunter, even though he received more than $550,000. the money intended as gifts was siphoned off to young to build his dream home, complete with pool and home theater system. luxuries that cost $200,000. lowell also grilled young about his final meeting with john edwards in which young claims to have feared for his life. lowell asks, quote, were you afraid of a weapon or a tape recorder? young answered -- both. >> the spotlight was on andrew young the entire time. that's where the defense wants it. the prosecution, however, wants to return it back to john edwards. >> reporter: young kept his cool throughout the grilling. breaking down just once, when talking about what he put his
8:33 am
kids and his wife through. jim axelrod, "cbs this morning," new york. >> for more on the case we turn to jean casarez, correspondent for "in session" on trutv. >> hello. >> how does this hurt their case? >> ins cancies, out and out lies but this is going to be a six-week trial. this is the first witness. think about it, if he was involved in this conspiracy, as prosecutors say, and he spent so much time with john edwards, we know he said he was the father of the child when he was not, this is not a boy scout. you take your witnesses as you get them. i don't think the prosecution believed he was going to be this valued person with high morals. >> what does the prosecution try to do here to get their case back on track? >> they have to focus on the facts. they've got to look at the facts and so many more things are going to come out. the core issue is, these monetary contributions that john edwards admitted he knew about,
8:34 am
were they come pain contributions or gifts? of course, the defense is saying, no, it was so his wife elizabeth didn't know about it. what the prosecution has to come forth with are not only statements he made to others about the money and what the moneys were for, phone, e-mail, texts and the fact he wanted to be president. when you want to be president, you need a first lady, right? maybe he didn't want elizabeth to find out, not because he cared but because he wanted to be president. >> outside of young who will help them execute that strategy? >> there is a witness -- i was reading over the indictment. go back to the basics, right? in the indictment it talks about a fellow employee of the john edwards campaign. they were trying to construct something to let the people know that he was the father of the baby. it was a statement they were going to prepare. allegedly john edwards told him all about the money, what it was for. it was so that rielle hunter wouldn't get to the media. and that it had to be covered up.
8:35 am
that person will take the stand. that will be evidence for the prosecution. >> let's not forget, as all of this is taking place, as unlikable as john edwards is right now, he's a brilliant trial lawyer and made millions understanding juries and the way they think and the way they operate. so, he's there, advising his counsel right now as all this takes place, one would presume? >> oh, i think its a valuable asset for the defense, no question about it. the defense may put on former federal election commissioners to take the stand to a this was not a campaign contribution. that could be very helpful for the defense. i mean, to the point of acquitting him in the end. so, this trial -- trialings go through ebbs and flows. prosecution's ahead, defense is ahead. i think both sides gain from andrew young but i think the defense really won because his incredibility on the stand was immense. let's watch it as it continues. >> do you think they knew the defense knew coming into this
8:36 am
that andrew young may backfire on the prosecution, they were banking on that possibility? >> you better believe it. they were hoping, they were praying, banking. the defense lawyer is a former justice official. he's brilliant. and i think the prosecution knew a lot, too. they knew the book he'd come out with. he knew a lot of things in the book were falsities, which is another issue. we can't believe what we buy and what we read? it's sad. >> john edwards right now, you're feeling pretty good? >> you shouldn't feel too good, right? this is a six-week trial. >> and still a lot coming out just on a personal basis about this trial. >> a lot coming out. and a lot, i think, the public may not know yet. so, we've got to listen because it's fascinating. >> jean, as always, thank you. >> thank you. we'll move over to lonnie quinn with another check of our weather on this saturday morning. good morning. >> good morning, guys. let's get right to the weather headlines. this is how we see it. i'm talking right now. there is rain out there in an area of unsettled weather west of the great lakes but i'll tell
8:37 am
you, that's about it. it is quiet everywhere else but don't be fooled by what you see on the satellite and radar picture. let's bring that picture up and i'll make sense of everything for you. here we have our great lakes. there's that area of unsettled weather. that's it. pretty quiet. totally quiet everywhere else. what you cannot see on a map like this is a warm front that extends from chicago down to the outer banks of north carolina. offshore, you see a little rain there. and when you energize that with a bit of sunshine, so a few hours from now, it is going to erupt in some wet weather. now, national storm prediction center is not saying it's going to be severe. only a slight risk, but could very well see local downpours and flooding from summerville, south carolina, to springfield, missouri. here's a closer look at the weather for your weekend.

there is new hope in the long search for madeleine mccann. she disappeared almost five years ago from her hotel room while vacationing with her family in portugal. she was just 4 years old when she vanished. this week scotland yard released a new photo of how she looks today at 9 years old. they believe she could still be alive and they're asking law enforcement officials in portugal to reopen the case. >> british police are been in close contact with mccann's family. they say they have almost 200 possible leads. joining us is stacy jordan, an attorney from western connecticut university. good morning. why did they release this information now? >> we're coming up on the fifth
8:42 am
anniversary next week of her disappearance and her birthday as well. we know from the handful of success stories that keeping the story in the news is imperative. it's extremely rare but there are those and because hope is eternal in the hearts of the parents, they make sure we get this age progression photo out there. >> and along with the photo scotland yard released a statement about the case. they say as a result of evidence uncovered during the review, detectives believe there is a possibility madeleine is still alive. that's what ignited this. what do we think that evidence could be? >> this is the concern, is that they are not articulating what that evidence is. they're simply saying they looked at it, put a lot of time and resources into this at the pressure of madeleine's parents. now, again, nothing's wrong with this. but it does raise the question, is it just the rhetorical statement? because what the final solution is, because we don't have her
8:43 am
and never recovered a body, she could still be alive. other than that, we have no evidence they're letting us know about to explain their thought process. i think that's why portuguese officials are cynical and not no eager -- >> but there's always been issues between how they should proceed in this case. >> right. >> it's not worth -- or it can't be overstated, though, the importance of cases like elizabeth smart's when we talk about this case, because nobody thought she was still alive. >> correct. i have to tell you that i remember the exact time and moment when i saw on the evening news that she had been recovered. i was never more happy as a criminologist to be wrong about my prediction she was dead. but over the almost 800,000 children that go missing in the united states each year, fewer than 100 are true stranger kidnapping abductions. you have to ask yourself, where should we put our attention and resources? not that we ever give up on the madeleine mccanns and elizabeth smarts of the world but other
8:44 am
children deserve equal attention. >> you bring up additional resource. how much money and how much does money play a role in determining whether or not to pursue these? >> that's the dirty little secret. it's in fact, true, when a child is extremely photogenic and we have fantastic footage when they're blond and blue eyed and the parents are privileged, let's be honest, those are the ones that end up in the news. that's why resources -- it needs to be a level playing field out there, that people pay as much attention. if the case is old -- by the way, they don't close them but they get cold, have you to realize resources are better spent on recent cases of missing children, for instance, little isabel celis in tucson right now, have you that window of opportunity and that's when money, time, resources, police need to be focused because the longer time passes, the less likely the child will be recovered alive. >> you can imagine as any parent, you will keep looking until the end of time. >> absolutely. there's nothing wrong with that. i have to tell you, when we get these success stories, you

♪ i am in misery in this morning's "healthwatch," how brain freeze might solve the mystery of migraines. brain freeze, that sudden thing you get when you eat something cold like ice cream? researchers announced brain freeze triggers a sudden change in blood flow and researchers believe that might help doctors understand migraines better. >> so, we invited dr. alexander mauskop, director and founder of the new york headache center,
8:49 am
here to tell us more this morning. good morning. >> good morning. >> what's the difference between a migraine and a common headache? >> migraine is a severe headache. would he sear research shows tension headaches and migraine headaches, probably same condition, but two ends of the spectrum. if you have a headache that makes you nauseous, sensitive to light, that's a migraine. >> what are we learning about brain freeze and how migraines happen? >> very interesting research study getting people to drink a very cold drink and many of them developed brain freeze, severe pain in their brain. at the same time researchers monitored blood flow in the brain and they discovered that when you have this basal phase of brain freeze, blood vessels dilate, branch out. as soon as the pain goes away, blood vessels go back to normal size. so, a similar thing happens in migraines. you have stretching of the blood vessels and then constriction of the blood vessels, but that gives us clues as to what's going on in the brain. we always knew migraines are
8:50 am
so-called vascular headaches. when you have a my grarngs you have a throbbing sensation. then we discovered the brain is where the problem starts. >> how does it help you treat it, then? >> well, there is a lot of research going on now addressing those issues of changes in the brain and changes of blood vessels. so, we have drugs that constrict blood vessels and stop the pain. >> does it matter where the pain exists? for example, i had a migraine yesterday. it was through here, like the frontal portion of my face. sometimes it's the side, sometimes it's the top. does that make a difference in the severity and how you treat it? >> unfortunately, it does not. many people think they have sinus headaches because the pain is in the front but migraine can be in the front, back, all over the head. >> as people -- so, the sensation that people get when they have brain freeze, then, you're saying it can at times feel like a migraine? >> that's right. and people have migraines are much more prone to getting brain
8:51 am
freeze. if you don't have headache, icy will not do it. if you were having migraine and have something very cold, you may get a different kind of headache called brain freeze. if you have one type of headaches, you're more prone to getting other types as well. >> what's your number one advice for treating migraine? >> there's not just one. good thing for viewers is that we can really cure most headaches -- not cure but control headaches in over 90% of people. we start without drugs. drugs equal side effects. we use them have day but we start with lifestyle changes. lack of sleep, big trigger. too much caffeine, withdrawal from caffeine, regular exercise. not just because it's good for you. regular exercise prevents migraines, proven in scientific studies. sum wants like magnesium, people who have migraines are deficient in magnesium. there are many, many other
