Jacksonville Journal Courier (Newspaper) - May 5, 1990, Jacksonville, Illinois Limited use of aspirin does decrease risk of heart attack almanac the associated press Deer or. Lamb on several occasions you have spoken about taking an aspirin Tablet every other Day to prevent a first heart attack and which May reduce the risk As much As 40 percent. I am a 66-year-old male in Good health and have been following this regimen in addition to using a Salt substitute and reducing cholesterol for the past several years. An article in our local paper seems to negate the aspirin every other Day advice and makes the claim that such a practice has the opposite effect. Is it your opinion that the earlier thinking was based largely on preliminary results of a single 1988 study and is incorrect or that the information in the enclosed article May be faulty or premature dear Reader i am familiar with the study of a California Community of about 14,000 people who took aspirin. Only 5,106 of the subjects were men. It did report that daily aspirin did not decrease the risk of heart attacks and could even increase the risk at least in women. You have to compare that to the study of 22,071 male physicians reported in the new England journal of Medicine july 20, 1989. Or. Charles Hennekens who headed the study of physicians was quoted regarding the California study As saying a you can to believe those the reason was that the study was not designed properly to allow proper statistical analysis. The preliminary report of physicians was published in 1988 As your letter suggests and the final five health doctor Lamb year study in 1989 As i mentioned. It is not unusual for different studies to arrive at different conclusions. That is often because the studies Are not designed in exactly the same manner. I would have to give the nod to the study of physicians which was Well designed to permit conclusions. The difference in How much aspirin is used May be important. The physician study used Only one aspirin every other Day but the California study used one aspirin every Day a twice As much. In Medicine if a Little is Good More is sometimes bad. The difference in the number of men in the studies is also important and the California study was of older individuals than in the physician study. The two studies Are not comparable. I have discussed this final report and the aspirin question in some detail in special Issue 34-10, a the latest on aspirin heart attacks and strokes a which i am sending you. Others who want this Issue can Send $2 with a Long stamped self addressed envelope for it to the health letter 34-10, p o. Box 19622, Irvine Calif. 92713. What should you do i think there is ample reason to believe that one 325 my. Aspirin Tablet every other Day will decrease the risk of heart attacks in men Over 50 years of age. Aspirin helps prevent blood clotting and As Many As 80 percent of heart attacks begin with the formation of a clot. But since the chronic use of aspirin May have some drawbacks in some people it is Wise to have your physicians recommendation. New aspirin Labelling is being considered suggesting that its use in preventing first heart attacks should be reserved for those with High risk factors for such an attack. But there is general agreement that aspirin is very beneficial in preventing a recurrence of heart attacks or an impending heart attack As judged by severe or recurrent Chest pain. Or. Lamb welcomes letters from readers with health questions. You can write to him at p o. Box 19622. Irvine Calif. 92713. Although or.

Shoppers ready to sack supermarket scanner a dear Abby May we Bend your ear with a pet Peeve ifs grocery stores that use automatic scanners and no longer put prices on their merchandise. They insist that this is for the customers prices not always current Are shown on the front of the grocery store shelves. How is an elderly person a pregnant woman someone with arthritis or bifocals or in a wheelchair a or just overweight a supposed to read the prices under the Bottom shelf if there Are no prices on the items in your grocery cart How can you quickly tally the total before you get to the checkout and the clerk informs you that you owe More than you can pay for that matter How can you be sure that items scan correctly its almost impossible to remember All the prices posted on shelves or advertised a on Sale but not yet entered into the computer. If a question arises someone must conduct a special Price search a delaying everyone standing in line. Most stores offer to refund scanning errors. This does not make up for the aggravation and time wasted. A shoppers Only alternative is to patronize a store that still Marks their merchandise the old fashioned Way. New is not always better a at least for customers a but complaints to the stores fall on deaf ears. A Gwen and Sally Mcbreairty Willow Street a. Dear Gwen and Sally to quote the consumer a Friend Ralph Nader a a when Sellers have dreams of riches beware of schemes that look like glitches a what is emerging form the complaints of Consumers who write to us is that Small rip offs amount to big business because they Are applied to Large numbers of customers. A most Consumers do not know they Are being taken by these sly frauds and those few who do Are Given the a of sorry it was a computer error or a just a mistake that we a Clear up right there is however no a sorry extended to the Consumers who done to Challenge the same bilk by the same seller. The result is a Mountain of Cash purloined for no services so dear readers budget conscious shoppers should be wary advice dear Abby coming up with right idea when you open the bidding with three no Trump you Are showing i ther a Basket Ful of High card Points 25 or More or a Long running suit with random outside stoppers. It s All a matter of partnership agreement. The same holds True when an opponent preempts. When South bid three no Trump North optimistically raised to four no Trump. That was not asking for aces but simply inviting a slam. South accepted by jumping to six diamonds. South had the right idea in the play. When the Spade Jack was led he realized that he would need the heart finesse and that the Best Chance thereafter would be finding one defender with both the Singleton Ace of diamonds and the King of clubs. So he won Dummy a King of Spades and led the Jack of hearts covered by the King from East. But when South tried to Cash the second heart West ruffed in with the Ace of diamonds and played a second Spade. Declarer later had to lose a club trick. To succeed South must win the first trick with the Spade Ace and then play the Spade Queen to Dummy. He can now Lead the Jack of hearts As before. Of West ruffs in on the second or third heart he must either give Declarer a stuff and a Ruff by leading another Spade or Lead away from the King of clubs. If West fails to Ruff in he will eventually be thrown on Lead with a Trump with the same result.
