bernie sanders are preparing for another crucial debate tonight, this time in wisconsin. it will be theirirst face-off since sanders' landslide victory in new hampshire. sources tell abc news hillary clinton's top advisers are calling supporters and donors trying to ease concerns about their campaign. they are focusing on south carolina and nevada and relying on support among african-american and latino voters. on the republican side, donald trump telling supporters in south carolina, if he wins their state's primary, he'll, quote, runhe table to the nomination. ted cruz claims he is the only candidate who can beat trump. john kash is considered a ng shot in south carolina, but the ohio governor is making news as he prepares to sign a bill defunding planned parenthood. in health news, encouraging signs about dementia in america. it appears to be on the decline. a new study finds rates of dementia are down more than 40% since the 1970s among whites. doctors say the change is most lily bause of lower rates of found a link between higher
7:59 am
dementia. well, we have an update on this video we showed you of that man helping police catch a drug suspect by tripping him on a sidewalk. well, police released the video in the hopeses of findg him so they could thank him for doing their legwork, and now they have. it turns out he is a soldier in the british army, and like any good soldier, he is always on duty. and finally the secret service has posted a sign outside the white house that may seem a little obvious. it reads, weapons prohibited at the white house. well, the agency tells "usa today" that it's required by law to post the sign to have the right to search people. but here's the deal, that law was passed back in 1988. it took them 28 years to get the sign up. no word why it took so lonong, but good work, guys. better late than never, robin. >> i guess so, a. thank you. we got a big health headline for the millions of americans trying to lose weight.
8:00 am
classified as overweight or obese, and a new study from johns hopkins university reveals those popular weight loss centers that so many use may not be helping. dr. jennifer ashton is here with the details. so, what's going on here, jen? >> so, robin, if you are overweight or obese and in my office, i would likely counsel you about the importance of losing w weight anthen might likely refer you to one of these weight loss centers to help you because this is an ordeal. so what this study did is they kind of wenent behehind the scenes and did a report card in an urban area of medical weight loss centers and what they found, they didn't do so well. there is a lot of room for improvement. one of the findings was about 1% only follow the actual medical guidelines in helping patients lose weight. fewer than one in three are actually supervised by a physician, and only about 3% are recommending the proper amount of physical actity. so, again, not such a good report card here. >> these are shocking numbers.
8:01 am
>> why are they not following the requirements? >> we don't know. i mean, my take on this is a number of possible explanations. number one, a center may choose deliberately to pursue their own approach, which is fine as long as you're transparent about that, and you want to follow your own espy. what would be more concerning if they were actually unaware that there were real guidelines that should ideally be followed and, lastly, obviously there could be financial gain here, and it could be a scam, so this is a scenario again where patients need to proceed with caution. buyer, beware. >> congratulations, you are just newly -- >> yes. >> -- board certified when it comes to obesity medicine. >> thank you. >> and there is some research out there that shows why it is so difficult for many to lose weight. >> right, we know based on the obesity medicine data, in some cases losing a significant amount of weight may not be as simple as eating carrot sticks and exercising a lot because
8:02 am
there are metabolic reasons, hormonal reasons, environmental reasons, exposure in utero, behavioral, genetic. this is a war on obesity, so we need an army to fight it. >> jen, you know so many people, they see these centers in malls, in strip malls and all around. what is your recommendation? >> well, proceed with caution. okay, there are a couple of tips. number one, you want to be clear about your goals at the onset. are you going to lose 20 pounds or are you going because you're trying to lose 200 pounds and you want to ask about the credentials of the people operating these centers. >> good. >> that should be up front. it's not a secret. you are entitled to know their qualifications. ideally, people can go to the internet and read the american heart association and obesity society guidelines on weight loss from 2013. it's a magnum opus, but it is there and it is accessible for everyone to look at and, lastly, you have to factor in cost. we say it all the time. it's expensive to be overweight. but getting good health can also be expensive, and so cost has to be factored in. >> wonderful suggestions right there.
8:03 am
again. >> thank you. >> like she needs another title. doesn't haveve enough ing on. >> a little bit of free time. >> a little. jen will be answering your questions throughout the morning. tweet her @drjenashton. go to "gma's" facebook page as well. now to jesse with the "morning menu." >> thanks, robin. here's what's coming up on the "morning menu." kim kardashian opening up about baby number two and starting a parenting debate. what experts are saying this morning. and lara is live on the "scandal" set getting unprecedented access with the entire cast like you've never seen before. plus, tory johnson is here with some great "deals & steals" to keep your family warm as the temperature drops, and it is getting colder. she's right here. we got some beards. we got some great ideas. it's all coming up live right here on "gma" in times square. where is my jacket? it is freezing. what's going on?
