8:03 pm
but she said avoiding trans fats is her choice, and that choice should remain. >> it's a waste of time. it's a waste of time, waste of government money. it's a personal choice. >> reporter: trans fats extend shelf like in foods like frozen pizza, cookie doe and microwave popcorn. many communities across the country has already banned trans-fats and many food make verse dropped them. now the food and drug administration said its time to phase them out nationwide. the fda calls this a life-saving proposition. estimating the new rules would prevent 20,000 heart attacks a year and 7,000 death as year from heart disease. scientists say trans fats are the worst kind of fat for your heart. they can increase bad cholesterol, raising your risk of heart disease. registered dietitian doesn't see
8:04 pm
that it's bad at all. >> these trans fats can be replaced with other things. these products are not going away. they're still there. the cheet-toes and free toes, and the packaged deserts are still there. they're still adding chemicals that are recognized as safe for us. >> trans fats are bad but felt that there had to be better ways for new regulation to get them out of our diets. >> companies will stop using trans fats as a natural result of people not buying products with trans fats. >> the fda has not set a timetable for the trans-fat phase out. >> seven years ago new york city became the first city in the united states to ban trans-fats. mayor michael bloomberg realized this statement:laurel, which of
8:05 pm
the tastiest foods. will the cookies be effected first? >> it will be the cookies, oreos, chips ahoys anything that sits on the shelf for a long time amazingly still has transa fat in it. people need to look on the label to see if it has partially hydrogenated oil. i was under the impression everyone was taking it out, and recently i picked up some oreos and some other cookies, and i saw that there is actually two grams or one and a half grams of trans-fat in some of these cookies. >> i was going to say for most of these products are there replacement brands that don't have trans-fat? >> different brands that don't have trans-fat? is that what you're asking?
8:06 pm
>> yes, if someone wants oreo cookies but you don't want the trans-fat. >> yes, there are companies that are offering different types of oil such as palm oil, that are not hydrogenated, and some are adding ow omega 3 oils, which ae very beneficial. >> some are saying enough. if the cookies taste good we want to eat it, how dangerous is trans-fat for people? >> i think if the fda is not considering safe--we know that the fda considers almost everything safe, if they're retracting that and saying this is not safe americans need to go with this and know it's in our best interest. why should we add something that is completely not necessary. if you taste one of the chocolate cream cookies that don't have oreos in them. they're delicious, they taste
8:07 pm
just as good. why cause heart disease, causation. our kids don't need this, neither do adults. >> are they already adjusting? >> i don't think that it will make a huge impact. will it cost them money to reformulate a recipe? yes, but at the end of the day there are a lot of fast food companies that have already taken out their trans fats, and a lot of companies that we've mentioned already created new cookies but don't have trans-fat in them. >> the ban is not going to start immediately. there is a 60-day comment period where anyone can go and register their comments. at that point the fda will decide this is how long we're going give companies to ban this stuff. >> right, again, people can make these comments. at the end of the day new york city has done a really great job with this, and we also have to
8:08 pm
make sure that once the fda does ban this, that someone is following up to make sure that the companies have truly taken out the partially hydrogenated oils. read the label, make sure it doesn't have partially hydrogenated oil because the product can say it's trans-fat free, but it can contain partially hydrogenated oil, which is trans-fat. so we definitely want to make sure that you're reading ingredients and avoiding that. >> registered dietitian here in new york. thank you for being on the program. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> a survey by pew research center shows how divided americans are over the trans-fat. the study conducted over the last week show that 44% of americans favor prohibiting restaurant were using trans fats in foods while 52% of americans oppose the idea. speaking of health, president obama has now

apologized to americans who are losing their health insurance plans as a result of the affordable care act. before president obama said that people would be able to keep their plans if they liked them, but now the plans must reach certain standards and many americans have received notices that their plans have been canceled. >> with well, more than a month after the disastrous rol roll on , president obama is now issuing a personal apology for all the problems on the website. he told nbc news that he regrets that many people are losing their insurance even though he said repeatedly leading up to the vote and in the three and a half years before the bill was signed that if you have insurance, you can keep it. >> i am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances that they got from me.
8:10 pm
we've got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them, and that we're going to do everything that we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this. >> one of the big questions that remains now will the marc march 31st deadline you have to have insurance by that time or you will face a fine. will that be extended because of all the problems on the website. the administration said repeatedly that they expect the website to be fixed by the end of this month. a democrat in the senate joined by republican mark kirk has introduced legislation to push back march 31st deadline. but the president hosted 16 senate democrats all of them up for re-election next year. many of them vulnerable. many of them facing a backlash at home because of problems with the website. he was asked in that meeting will you push back the deadline? the answer simply, no. >> mike viqueira reporting for us tonight from the white house. it is the most highly
8:11 pm
anticipated tech launch sinc, tr joined wall street. twtwitter listed as twtr among wouldn't popular users at the beginning bell. twitter's highly anticipated debut, it's stock searched 73% from its initial public offering. for more we turn now to real money's ali velshi. >> reporter: david, i'm exhausted with all the references to the 73% gain in twitter stalk. find me someone who was able to buy the stock at $26. most people are not institutional investor. if you're not a high roller or institutional investor you bought it at the market price. that meant many institutional
8:12 pm
high rollers who got a piece of the ipo dumped it on you and scored a sweet gain of 73%. that means your loss was .5% since the stock closed lower at 4$44.90. this is not a commentary on twitter. it's not. this is a commo common tear on . twitter has millions of active users but losses in the first nine months of this year, and one analyst has already downgraded the stock. a guy name brian wiser of profittal research said to justify a price of $45 a share activity would need to generate $6 billion in annual revenue b by 2018. this year's revenue is expected to be a tenth of that. the question is whether twitter is the exception to pretty much every rule of investing or whether it's a sign of a tech

public. the s&p 500 jumped 24% for the year, the nasdaq is up 28% and there have been onfire ipos, regardless it seems that hashtag fomo the fear of missing out trumps many things in people's investment decisions. >> ali velshi, #aj real money, #awesome. we want to bring you up-to-date what is shaping up the most powerful storm of the year. rebecca stevenson is joining us with the latest, rebecca? >> reporter: this is one of the strongest storms we've had in the last 50 years. this powerful typhoon we've been seeing it develop over water and this is over water that we've got winds up to 190 mph. this is one of the strongest that we've had in a long time. just this year alone the pacific
8:14 pm
has had 30 storms. eight of these have been typhoons. now of these storms five have made landfall on the philippines and you can see here several of them focus in the same area that we're getting high on tonight. now, as you can see on the satellite picture it is advancing, making landfall, and it has now made landfall. we expect the gusts inland. we'll still have potentially at 200 mph. but most of the sustained wind as the storm tracks gradually across the area. we'll have winds sustained to 100 mph. this is devastating. catastrophic, and we have a very large population in the philippine island here. as you look closely you can see the eye of this storm. this is where the intense winds exist. and as you get farther away from the eye, the winds are not quite as strong. but then the other part of this is storm surge and the amount of rain that we're getting, four to
8:15 pm
six inches are the totals we expect to look at after the storm is back in the south china sea. but the storm bringing anywhere from one to three inches in an hour. again, a very wet windy dangerous storm, and we will be looking closely to hear from anyone after it passes. david? >> we're being told that the size of the storm is almost 500 miles which would put it larger than hurricane katrina. there have been wind gusts of over 225 mph. i know some folks in the weather department suggested maybe this could not be accurate because these numbers are so far off the charts. >> well, we don't have hurricane hunters to fly through these types of storms. so certainly we have to use the tools that we have, which is satellite data. utilizing our satellite they'll get the data from the storm based on various features they have, and it will tell us approximate amounts of wind and rain and how strong these storms actually are.
8:16 pm
>> rebecca stevenson, rebecca, thank you very much. we'll keep everyone posted on this devastating storm. the headline is that the storm has now made landfall in the philippines. some 200,000 people stand in the way, and again this is a group of the philippines that got pummeled just a few weeks ago by an earthquake. we'll keep you up-to-date on all of these developments as we get information and we have our reporters on the phone from the philippines. coming up the.

8:28 pm
>> welcome back to al jazeera america. i'm david shuster in new york. here are some of the top stories we're following right now. president obama apologized today to the millions of americans who are losing their current insurance plans because those plans don't meet minimum requirements mandated by the affordable care act. the president has been saying for years if people like their plans they can keep them. today in an interfere he said the administration it is looking for ways people must now shop around and might have to pay more. the u.s. food and drug administration is proposing
8:29 pm
measures to ban artificial trans fats. and have been blamed for increasing the risk of heart disease. the fats are still found in many processed foods. hitting the philippines. one of the most powerful storms ever reported. ordering evacuations and closing schools, but u.s. navy which has been watching the storms with wind gust versus topped 235 mph. twitter started selling shares to investors who liked what they saw. they priced the shares at $26 but by the end of trading today the stock was selling at nearly $45. we have a stock strategy and joins us from dallas. why is twitter any different than facebook which many investors discovered the hard way. >> it's a completely different animal. one of the reasons why i'm surprised the stocks, remember when facebook came out morgan stanley had to step in and buy
8:30 pm
shares like crazy. twitter didn't need that. the key to twitter, the reason why it's holding up here is people is viewing twitter as a potential acquisition target. google is its own stand alone yahoo. activitier is better as a part of those bigger companies. i think that's part of the desire why the shares are so high today. >> the opportunity to put ads right there. >> yeah, i think that's the main reason. obviously what advertisers are looking for are the demographic of the person understanding what they're thinking at that very moment and selling them in advertisement at that moment. you know, the thing that i'm concerned with activitier is critical mass. what are they going to be able to do to get more users and those users who are engaged how are they going to be able to monday advertise them.
8:31 pm
that's a question that still remains unanswered. >> twitter continues to essentially lose money. how many years when investors will see a return on their investment and see that this is a company in the black? >> with a very tough call. i was running the numbers. think about this for just a second. twitter is worth as all state, corning, discovery, netflix, it's worth as much as yahoo, and the company did lose $134 million. i think it's going to be three to our years at least before this company gets in the black unless there is a major propellant. i think we're three years out from profitability. >> what is the greatest risk that twitter stock is taking with it. >> this idea that twitter is going to become something or bought by somebody never comes to fruition. you know, there are a lot of people working with a company that they believe they're going
8:32 pm

8:35 pm
