Malaysian authorities to deploy resources to conduct search on the western

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

COOLER WEATHER ON THE WAY

Wednesday featured partly sunny skies and a few scattered showers north of Ft. Myers as a cool front works through the area. The scattered showers will diminish this evening, with temps falling into the 70s. Skies will clear out overnight, with lows in the low 60s.

Behind the front, much cooler air will push into the region. We'll see almost total sunshine on Thursday, but despite the sun highs will only climb into the low 70s. Expect a very cool Thursday Night, with lows falling into the mid and upper 40s.

We will start a warming trend to close the work week. Sunshine will again bathe the region on Friday, with highs back in the upper 70s. A few locations inland will likely push into the low 80s.

The weekend is looking 50/50, with the better day being Saturday. Mostly sunny skies will prevail on Saturday, with highs back in the low 80s.

On Sunday, more moisture returns the region. This will result in increasing clouds and the chance for a few scattered showers. Highs on Sunday will push into the mid 80s.

Unsettled weather is looking likely as we head into next week. We'll see plenty of cloud cover with day-to-day chances of scattered showers. Right now, it looks like the best chance for rain will be Monday. Highs next week will hold in the low 80s. Return to index of stories...

RENEE TESSMAN REPORTS. Return to index of stories...


WHOLE OR SKIM MILK-PKG


WHEN IT COMES TO BUYING MILK FOR HIS 8 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER, ERIC LUCAS CHOSES 2%.

"Whole milk is probably a little bit too much fat but skim I don't think is enough fat just personally."

HE SAYS THE FAT HELPS HER DEVELOPING BRAIN AND FILLS HER UP.

HE'S NOT SURPRISED RECENT STUDIES SHOW CONSUMING HIGH DAIRY FAT COULD HELP ADULTS AVOID GETTING FAT.

YES. IT SOUNDS COUNTERINTUITIVE. BUT RESEARCHERS FOUND MIDDLE AGE MEN WHO CONSUME WHOLE MILK, BUTTER AND CREAM WERE LESS LIKELY TO BE OBESE OVER 12 YEARS THAN THOSE WHO DRINK SKIM.

IT'S UNCLEAR WHY BUT ONE THEORY IS WHOLE MILK COULD MAKE US FEEL MORE FULL AND LESS LIKELY TO EAT MORE.

BUT DR. THOMAS KOTTKE, A HEALTH PARTNERS CARDIOLOGIST SAYS HOLD ON.

"There's a lot of thin people who have heart attacks."

HE SAYS WHOLE MILK'S SATURATED FATS PUT YOU AT GREATER RISK FOR HEART DISEASE.

"For example Finland in the 1960's they had the highest heart disease rates in the world and they've gone to skim milk."

KOTTKE SAYS SKIM MILK DROPPED HEART DISEASE RATES BY 50%.

INSTEAD OF CHOOSING WHOLE MILK OVER SKIM, HE SAYS THE BEST OPTION TO REDUCE HEART DISEASE RISK AND STAY THIN.

"A dietary pattern that's mostly vegetables fruit nuts fish skim milk is overall the healthiest dietary pattern." Return to index of stories...

WEATHER-WX WALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

COOLER WEATHER ON THE WAY

Wednesday featured partly sunny skies and a few scattered showers north of Ft. Myers as a cool front works through the area. The scattered showers will diminish this evening, with temps falling into the 70s. Skies will clear out overnight, with lows in the low 60s.

Behind the front, much cooler air will push into the region. We'll see almost total sunshine on Thursday, but despite the sun highs will only climb into the low 70s. Expect a very cool Thursday Night, with lows falling into the mid and upper 40s.

We will start a warming trend to close the work week. Sunshine will again bathe the region on Friday, with highs back in the upper 70s. A few locations inland will likely push into the low 80s.

The weekend is looking 50/50, with the better day being Saturday. Mostly sunny skies will prevail on Saturday, with highs back in the low 80s.

On Sunday, more moisture returns the region. This will result in increasing clouds and the chance for a few scattered showers. Highs on Sunday will push into the mid 80s.

Unsettled weather is looking likely as we head into next week. We'll see plenty of cloud cover with day-to-day chances of scattered showers. Right now, it looks like the best chance for rain will be Monday. Highs next week will hold in the low 80s. Return to index of stories...

YEARS AGO ASTHMA WASN'T SO EASY TO DIAGNOSE.

NOW, MANY ADULTS ARE FINDING OUT THEY'VE HAD IT FOR YEARS.

IT CAN ALSO BE AN ACQUIRED CONDITION.

EITHER WAY, ADULT ASTHMA NEEDS TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY.

AMY OSHIER REPORTS IN TODAYS HEALTH MATTERS. Return to index of stories...


HEALTH MATTERS-PKG


PKG:

THAT CONSTANT COUGH- IT COULD BE A SIGN OF A CHRONIC HEALTH

CONDITION- ONE THAT IS INCREASING IN THE ADULT POPULATION.

DR. SAGAR NAIK/PULMONOLOGIST

RUNS:

:29 I think asthma shifted- the traditional part of it being a disease of childhood- to being

increasingly recognizes in adulthood as well.

A PERSISTENT COUGH IS AN INDICATOR, ALONG WITH EPISODIC WHEEZING

OR SHORTNESS OF BREATH. AND FREQUENT SINUS ISSUES MAY ACTUALLY

BE SYMPTOMS OF ASTHMA.

TERESA SUMME/ASTHMA MANAGEMENT COORDINATOR

RUNS:

2:00 With adults, they'll mask their symptoms because they'll think they're just

coughing. They need to be treating just like a child, right away with their relief medicine.

AMY OSHIER/REPORTING

RUNS:

While adults are less likely than children to end up in the ER with breathing problems,

asthma is nothing to kid around with. Left untreated, it can cause permanent damage

and even lead to severe respiratory diseases, like COPD.

DR. SAGAR NAIK/PULMONOLOGIST

RUNS:

6:32 The tubes that take air to the lungs are inflamed in asthma and that inflammation

causes the tubes to constrict or get narrow. 7:03: With years and years of inflammation

that tube gets scarred and get thickened and permanently remains a constricted

phase. So patients with asthma. bad, untreated asthma can go on develop permanent

irreversible changes in their lungs.

CREATED FOR KIDS, LEE MEMORIAL HEALTH SYSTEM REFORMATTED IT'S

ASTHMA PROGRAM FOR ADULTS.

TERESA SUMME/ASTHMA MANAGEMENT COORDINATOR

RUNS:

7:23 Most of our patients once they've completed the program, know when they need to

go to their physician, but also when they're going to need their steroids, when they need

to step up from an inhaled steroid.
