JOINED BY ASIVE MANDVI IN OUR -- ASSIF MANDVI IN OUR REGULAR SEGMENT PAGING DR. MANDVI.

>> THANK YOU, JON.

>> Jon: FROM A MEDICAL STANDPOINT HOW REMARKABLE IS ARMSTRONG'S ACCOMPLISHMENT?

GREAT QUESTION, JON.

A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE WONDERING HOW DID LANCE ARMSTRONG MAINTAIN A WEB OF LIES FOR OVER 13 YEARS,

JUST ONE MORE TRIBUTE TO THIS INCREDIBLE ENDURANCE ATHLETE WHEN THE AVERAGE MAN CAN ONLY

SUSTAIN A SINGLE LIE FOR BETWEEN FIVE AND SEVEN HOURS BEFORE GUILT AND LACK OF OXYGEN.

GOO ON MY SHIRT.

I WAS DOING AN ART PROJECT WITH CHILDREN.

OKAY IT'S STRIPPER GLITTER!

>> Jon: YOU ARE SAYING IT'S PREPARATION.

>> AND TRAINING.

THIS IS PRACTICING RUNNING FROM THE TRUTH AT THE PRESTIGIOUS DICK NIXON HUMAN DEEXCEPTION LAB

IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

EVEN THEN RESEARCHERS RECOGNIZED HIS GREATNESS.

>> Jon: PHYSIOLOGY HAS TO PLAY SOME ROLE IN THIS.

NOT JUST THE TRAINING.

WE COULD TRAIN FOR YEARS AND NEVER APPROACH THAT TYPE OF ENDURANCE.

>> CERTAINLY HIS INHERENT UNETHICAL ABILITY GIVES HIM --

>> HERE SAY NORMAL HUMAN BRAIN.

YOU CAN SEE THE CENTER THAT CONTROLS DECEPTION IS THIS WHITE MATTER RIGHT HERE.

YOU CAN SEE IT'S THE SIZE OF A WALNUT OR FOUR WARM ALMONDS OR ONE AND A HALF BRAZIL NUTS.

I FLEW IN ON FIRST CLASS.

>> Jon: I UNDERSTAND THEY GIVE YOU A RAMEKIN OF NUTS AND THEY ARE WARM.

>> DELICIOUS.

>> Jon: THAT'S A NORMAL ONE.

>> IF YOU LOOK AT ARMSTRONG'S IT'S LOOKS LIKE THIS.

>> THAT'S RIGHT THERE.

>> Jon: WHAT KIND OF DOCTOR ARE YOU?

>> I'M AN INDIAN DOCTOR, JON.

THIS IS MY MEDICAL DEGREE RIGHT HERE.

WE JUST KNOW THIS STUFF, OKAY?

>> Jon: SO, OKAY, SO THIS EXPLAINS WHY WHY HE IS CAPABLE OF TELLING BIGGER LIES FOR

LONGER PERIODS OF TIME.

>> TO SOME EXTENT.

HE WAS BORN WITH GENETIC ADVANTAGES.

HE CERTAINLY WORKED HARD AT --

[ LAUGHTER ]

HE HAS WORKED HARD AT BEING THE BEST LIAR YOU CAN BE BUT EVEN THAT DOESN'T COMPLETELY EXPLAIN

HIS SUCCESS.

>> Jon: WHO.

ARE YOU SAYING WHAT I THINK YOU ARE SAYING?

>> I THINK I'M SAYING WHAT YOU THINK I'M SAYING.

>> Jon: I THINK YOU THINK I KNOW THINK WHAT YOU ARE SAYING.

SAY IT.

>> ALL RIGHT.

I'LL SAY IT.

I BELIEVE HE HAS BEEN USING LIE ENHANCING DRUGS.

YOU NAME IT, HE'S ON IT.

FIB-ADR E, DEDECEPT-A FRIEND.

NONSENSE CALL, THE GENERIC OF FRAUD-U-LEX.

GUILT IS SAY SIDE EFFECT OF THE DRUGS AND ANY ONE OF THESE DOCTORS WILL MASK WIT A 100

MILLIGRAMSES OF DOUCH
