Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 19, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Kapids Gazette: Fri., April 19, 1974 for Better Health Tuberculosis Sfrikes Regardless of Age By Dr. S.L. Andelman Are you safe from tuberculo- sis because you're too old or too young? How about your chil- dren? How about your parents? Here are some facts about TB at different ages. Babies can get a violent form of the disease. Older children can fight off active TB much better. But once the germs get into the lungs, they live on an may cause a breakdown wil TB years later. Children of a ages can be infected. Get tuberculin tests for your children every year to mak sure they aren't infected. Sug gest yearly tuberculin tests chest X-rays for all adult whom your children see often. After 15 years of age, th number of people who have ai live TB goes up. Many of thes people were infected as chi dren; some catch it as adults. Good Health Adults need good genera health to help fight off TB infec tion. With yearly tuberculir tests or chest X-rays, TB can b found early, when it can b cured most easily. TB sickness and death rate are higher in older people wh need to keep up their guar against this disease. Many mic die-age and older adults hav had TB for a long time an never found it out. They don know they're sick, even thoug they may be infecting others Older people need annual ches X-rays to check on TB an other chest diseases as well. TB Test TB can smolder for man; years before it bursts int flame. But the tuberculin tes shows whether TB germs hav entered the body and the ches Dr. S. L. AnrJelman LAFF-A-DAY "I miss the scent of perfume." X-ray shows whether the germi have done any damage.

DUMB KIP.' IT WAS RIGHT AFRAIP OFTHE8ALL.' WHO PUT I OH OUR TEAM Report Links Marijuana to Decrease in Male Fertility WIN AT BRIDGE BOSTON (AP) Men who smoke large amounts of mari- juana run the risk of decreasing their fertility, according to a report co-authored by noted sex researcher William H. Masters. The report, published in the New England Journal of Medi- cine, was based on tests on 20 men who smoked from five to 18 "joints" a week for 18 months or longer. It showed :hat seven of those tested had noticeably decreased sperm counts. Researchers also found that ilood levels of the sex hormone ;estosterone averaged 44 per- cent lower in the users than nonusers, and that two of the chronic smokers were impotent 'apparently in association with marijuana use." The report said one of the ;wo who were impotent re- ;urned to normal sexuality vithin two months after he dis- continued marijuana use, but he other declined to give up using marijuana. The study warned that the 'esults iously should be taken cau- because of the small ize of the1 sample, lack of 'data n the potency of the mari- uana and because it was im- ossible to measure hormone evels and sperm counts of the men before they started using marijuana. The test subjects were 18 to 8 years old and were com- ared with 20 similarly healthy men of the same age who did not use marijuana. The study said both sperm count, and testosterone levels seemed directly related to the amount of marijuana used. Sub- jects averaging more than 10 marijuana cigarets weekly had significantly lower testosterone than less chronic users. The hormone finding is of particular significance, the re- searchers said, because numer- ous other research findings in- dicate, that a lack of testos- terone at critical points in the development of the male fetus can cause sex organs to develop improperly and later cause permanent hormone imbalance. The researchers said it would be "judicious" for women to avoid marijuana during the first three months of pregnancy since it has been shown that marijuana ingredients can pass from the mother to the fetus. They also said claims that marijuana heightens sex drives and performance probably should be reassessed.
