>> what started small has grown into a major crisis. how watching a episode of the doctors changed his life. >> thank you. >> i didn't know. >> then 911 operator's nightmare. >> you heard this woman. >> plus a break through treatment to beat an impossible cancer. >> it's a miracle. >> the faints at the sight of real blood? plus the food additive that could cause cancer. that's today. >> welcome, everyone, to the show. joining us today is dr. anita landry. hello. we will get right to it there is a trend alert out there.
glamorous eye lashes. we are putting it to the test today. joining us back stage is candace with beverly hills lashes. what are you doing? >> people have heard about a lash perm. this curls the tips of your lashes. this lifts from the base of the lashes. this lasts 6 to 8 weeks maybe 12 weeks depending on the person. we are here with lisa and amanda. lay down. putting on the soothing gel pad on the lower lashes. the lower lashes need to be covered so they don't get in the way. the second thing we will do is we choose a silicon pad to use. the purpose is to see how long the lashes are and how much we want them lifted. from there we put the treatment on. then a conditioning treatment and we're done from there. >> it seems like a pretty quick
later in the show. >> yes. >> so, we're excited to put this to the test is. this something you're excited about? >> i'm very excited. ya, i want to saoefrplt. >> how about you, big boy. >> heck ya. [laughing] >> it could be just what you're looking for. >> if i do it, you're doing. just kidding. this next topic bothers me so much. if it's an emergency you should be able to trust the 911 many people in the houston area. >> in an emergency situation time is critical. often the first person to jump into action is the 911 dispatcher. when one houston dispatcher chose to hang up on a caller because she didn't want to talk to anyone she found herself facing criminal charges. according to documents filed this operator was involved with thousands of calls lasting less than to seconds between
reporting a armed robbery in a convenience store was hung up on twice before connecting with a different operator. by the time the officer arrived the store manager was shot and killed. the dispatcher faces faces two misdemeanor charges with interference with emergency telephone calling. >> the reason i'm so troubled by this, think we think of 911 as a last >> peoples lives are at stake. time is of the essence. taking the call seriously and handling them properly. >> this is someone clearly who didn't take her job seriously. was not meant to be on the front lines. i have to give a shout out to 91911 operators out there. i have spent time in my emergency training even at the 911 facility.
work and going about their jobs it's important when you make that 911 call usually something scary is occurring and you're filled with anxiety. the 911 operator is getting resources deployed but they're also your first point of contact. a good 911 operator can help you deal with a situation until he help arrives. i wouldn't be okay. even if she said what is your address, cool. she wasn't a goo with human inter action skills it would be forgivable. for being responsible and this person who died in the con sraoebt store that death could of been prevented. >> she wasn't doing her job at all. you say the job could of been done well. i think most people who take the 911 calls are excellent. this is the first story i have heard of someone having problems.?i think most are prof. >> usually --
>> -- usually we make fun of people making 911 calls in fast food and my burger isn't well done. there is abuse from the caller side. this is the first i have heard from the operator side. hopefully it's few and far between. >> don't you think there had to be other clues. i don't think she was a well rounded nice person that was normal in all other aspects of her life and at the work place and then do this. there had to things going on in her life. >> i don't know how the call logs work. you think if you hang up quickly on one person there is another call coming. if you were still on the line trying to help someone. sometimes the calls last for minutes on end. you know, you are avoiding the next call. i don't know if it was purely driven from i don't want to do work. it's interesting here. >> she may of been overworked
>> maybe -- >> she is the only one taking the calls. >> you're a very kind man, drew. >> are you, dry. >> let's talk about something that is good. this is using social media. instagram is taking things into their own hands to developing tools to protect users against potential self harm. it's rolling out a new to make the social media platform a saver place. there is a chance this could save lives. if you see a person post about self harm you can anonymously report it. they may get a message saying someone saw a post, are you going through a difficult time. do you need support? we would like to help? there are options through the app including a help line. it all varies by location.
talk to or other support groups. it's really interesting thought process. i do want to bring psychotherapist mike dowe into the conversation. as a therapist you deal with people often times going through difficult circumstances. this could be a revolutionary way to use social media. is this a good idea or do you think there is a danger of abuse? >> i think it's fantastic somewhere. >> i thought that too. >> the adolce adults i deal w there is often a cry for help. parents are like, my teen is being a teenager. many don't cry out or talk to parents about it, but they do use social media to hint at things. whether it's self mutilation, eating disorder, there is usually something said to somebody. are you creating a funnel, right. we help people and correct it.
it. in this case it's better safe than sorry. >> i agree with you. [ applause ] >> a cry for help, you have to assume it's for real. >> that's what we do in mental health. if someone has a suicide attempt or saying over and over again every time someone says "i am going to kill myself and have a plan" we act as if they're acting on it. if someone s times that's a cry for help. they need help. >> i love how instagram realized how powerful of a tool they are. they worked with mental health experts seth this up to get the help they need. when we talk about illnesses and the type of mental health problems that may benefit from this, everything from depression, anxiety, maybe not all the way to suicide.
to use apps like this? >> think . so especially when it is about low self worth, right. it's not in- patient or anorexia or depression. maybe it's someone struggle with social anxiety. that's common with adults and teens. think we can use it even when a mental health professional is not neededt self-esteem. >> we hope people don't take the low road and people put them down and bully them. >> technology can block those people too. that is great too. >> isn't that a big problem with the advent of social media. it's easier to feel bully than support. this, i think, it does change the game. i'm curious, in your opinion, if this works for instagram there
