BLONDIE-By Chic Young Honey won't help your cataracts Dr. l.anil) I have been told that a drop of honey in the eye every day will dis- solve tbo cataracts. Is this truo or false? Your comments will be appreciated, Dear Reader False. A ca- taract involves a coagulation of the protein in the lens of the eye which means that the "jells in the clearlike lens become clouded nnd can't transmit light. There are several causes for cataracts including severe elec- trical shock and they are more common m diabetes. The most widely accepted theory of (he cause of the usual form of cataracts, though, is that they are a na- tural process of aging. The lens of the eye is made up of the same type of tissue that forms the skin over the body. You know that the skin con- stantly forms new cells and we slough off the old cells at the surface of the skin. The lens of the eye also constantly forms new cells but it can not dis- card them at" its surface since the lens is imhedded inside the eye. The lens of the eye grows lar- ger and larger through the years and the cells that make up the lens arc packed tighter and lighter together in the cen- ter of the lens. Eventually these lightly packed cells be- LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. while. But the proWsm is, global pro- happcns lo all Uie dirty b.ith jcct lu a slnnu way nt "a a local level.
