Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LE1HBI1IUUB H Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb You must be wrong about eggs and cholesterol. I bought a carton of eggs the other day and inside the carton it stated "Research indicates eating eggs will not increase serum cholesterol in the average person if they are not gaining and "Research indicates high levels of serum cholesterol is not correlated with high risk of heart attack in most people." Also, the carton was approved by the Department of Agriculture. Now, what do you have to say about that in view of all your comments about eggs and cholesterol? Dear Reader I sent the egg carton top to the Food and Drug Administration, and they sent it to the Department of Agriculture, and, from the letter it sounds like there has been some hanky-panky. You can judge for yourself. Here, in part, is what the letter said. "The carton you submitted did bear the shield (USDA) and was approved. However, our records show the labeling submitted for approval did not contain any statements about cholesterol. This information was added to the label subsequent to approval Accordingly, we have disapproved the further use of this carton until the statements in question are removed or changed in such a manner as not to be misleading.'' "In approving labels of cartons bearing the official grade designation, we use as our criteria for approval the regulations of the Federal Food and Drug Administration as authorized under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act. We have discussed the statements about cholesterol with appropriate officials in the food and Drug Administration, and it is their opinion that the statements contained on this carton should not be approved." appreciate your bringing this to our attention so we could take corrective action There you have it. The misleading statements on cholesterol were added by the egg distributor after getting U.S. Department of Agriculture approval. I'll let you guess why the statements were added after Utt label was reviewed by the department and not before. Examples like this one lead me to think the cauumers really do need a watch dog in terms of food and health. So, "what do I have to tay about that" in regards to the label. Just thank you for sending it along so I could unmask the real truth and help to protect my readers from such practices. At a doctor I am always dismayed find products being promoted in this fashion when we spend so much time trying to help inform people on what is good for their health. I sincerely hope that no patients with heart disease or others who should be taking measures to control their blood cholesterol levels have been misled by such labels and resorted to dietary habits not good 'for their health. For more information on cholesterol write to me in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, N Y., N.Y. 10019 and ask for the booklet on "Cholesterol." Enclose 50 cents to cover costs. I think it is safe to assume that the concept that elevated serum cholesterol levels increase the risk of heart attacks is on fairly solid ground It represents the thinking of most of the leading scientists' working on this problem. It remains true that the egg yolk is one of the richest sources of cholesterol in the average diet. Dr. Lamb welcomes your letters, but because of the large volume of mail he can answer individually only letters used in his column. Write to Dr. Lamb in care of this newspaper, P.O.

(1974, The Chicago Tribune) Ask Andy MOLES Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Susan Karmazenuk, age 13, of St Lazare, Quebec, Canada, for her question: Can moles see during the daytime? Moles are mysterious dwellers down in the dirt. We seldom see them, which may be why we invent all sorts of strange rumors about them. Some people say that moles are blind, others that they cannot see in dazzling daylight Some even insist that moles have no eyes. In the past few years, researchers have investigated these secretive animals more fully Some of the rumors proved to be false, some partly true. But the answer to today's question still is in a state of confusion. Moles inhabit temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere, where dozens of different .species live secretive lives in the loose soil No two species are exactly alike, though all of them have very poor vision. After all, their underground tunnels are darker than the darkest midnight, where even the keenest eyes would be useless. What's more, if a mole had big bright eyes, they would collect crumbs of dirt Actually, the eyes of the average mole are no bigger than pinheads. They are hidden in his furry face and people who insist that he has no eyes at all simply fail to find them. Most moles are able to see, though not very distinctly. In some species, the eyes are covered with skin and these fellows are definitely blind. Until recently, most naturalists assumed that the average mole rarely if ever pokes his nose above the surface. It was thought that the male or female emerged only to gather soft vegetation to line the nursery nest. After more careful research, we now know that the average mole pays more frequent visits to the surface. Sometimes'he merely stretches himself in the sun. Sometimes he ventures on a short journey and strange to say, he seems to know just where he wants to go. Often he makes for a stream and swims around in search of grubs. We cannot be sure whether he prefers to make these surface excursions at night or during the day Unlike most animals, his life style is out of harmony with the earth's night and day periods. The nervous little digger has a high metabolism that demands twice his weight in food every 24 hours. For this reason, his underground life style requires five or six hours of frantic digging for grubs and worms, followed by a rest period of about four hours. He wakes up famished and would soon perish if he did not start grubbing for more food immediately. Hence, his built- in work-and-rest periods have nothing to do with day and night. At present, we cannot be sure whether he sees a little better at night. However, even in the bright light of day, the average mole can see well enough to go where he wants logo.
