The Liar in Your Life

In The Liar in Your Life, psychology professor Robert Feldman, one of the world's leading authorities on deception, draws on his immense body of knowledge to give fresh insights into how and why we lie, how our culture has become increasingly tolerant of deception, the cost it exacts on us, and what to do about it. His work is at once surprising and sobering, full of corrections for common myths and explanations of pervasive oversimplifications.

We'll tell you all about why blanched almond flour is considered a superfood by some; how it differs from white wheat flour and how it registers on the glycemic index.

Today the president was in New York to meet with 911 families and responders. In this hour we look at the renewed debate on torture to extract evidence, and at President Obama's decision not to release the bin Laden death photos. Plus, Pakistan...what do its nuclear bombs have to do with our administration's refusal to abandon that country...even as we wonder, what they knew and when they knew it.

Report On the Dangers of Paint Fumes and Solvents

Children who sleep with fumes from water-based paints and solvents are two to four times more likely to suffer allergies or asthma, according to a new scientific study. Swedish and U.S. scientists measured the compounds - propylene glycol and glycol ethers - in the bedroom air of 400 toddlers and preschoolers, and discovered that the exposed children had substantially higher rates of asthma, stuffy noses and eczema. The irony is that these compunds are supposed to be healthier than the old, high-polluting, oil-based paints and solvents.
