in people with afib, not caused by a heart valve problem. hey, well i'm glad we got together. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. i tried warfarin before, but the blood testing routine and dietary restrictions had me off my game. tell me about it. let's see, golf clinic, or blood clinic? ooh, that's a tough one. not this time. not with xarelto®. anything else? i'll have another arnold palmer. ok. make mine a kevin nealon. really, brian? hey, safety first. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking xarelto® you may bruise more easily and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto® can cause serious bleeding and in rare cases may be fatal. get help right away if you develop unexpected bleeding unusual bruising, or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto® watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle-related signs or symptoms.
7:41 am
do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve, or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto® tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® has been prescribed more than 11 million times in the u.s. and that number's growing. like your guys' scores. with xarelto® there is no regular blood monitoring, and no known dietary restrictions. treatment with xarelto® was the right move for us. ask your doctor about xarelto®. you may be able to get up to 12 months at no cost. >> 7 time 41 with rossen reports. vacation under cover, how safe are your children when they swim in cruise ship pools? more from jeff. >> good morning to you. the cruise industry markets itself as family friendly fun for all and the pools and water

ben? what do you say your faith is or do you say you're both? >> yeah i mean there are definitely times people say, oh well you can't be both. or is your mother jewish? that's the only way you could be jewish. but i think from an early age my parents instilled in me confidence in claiming both and saying, you know i'm not 50%-50%. i'm just jewish and christian. >> hanna, what about for you? you didn't have -- you're raised catholic and jewish together. right? >> yes. >> how do you identify? >> well when people ask me i just kind of respond oh i'm interfaith. it is almost the same common response as saying i'm christian, i'm jewish. no one really bats anny any nieye anymore. >> many are much more accepting. >> did you and your husband discuss this before kids? >> yes. we were very lucky that both families really supported us in getting plaerd ingting married. we never had a problem, you know, you have to raise your children one way or the other.
