Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETriBRIDGE HERALD Friday, August 9, 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb 1'ou had a column about salmon. I am on a low-fat and low-cholesterol diet. On the diet given to me by my doctor it states to "avoid any canned fish in oil." It seems most fish are canned with oil added, and it is usual- ly soybean oil Now. I usually have fresh fish, halibut or tur- bot. But occasionally I find it inconvenient to prepare fish, and I have purchased canned salmon. The cans do not include any statement that oil has been added so I presume it hasn't been. Right? You stated that different kinds of salmon had different amounts of fat. The salmon here is labeled "Alaska Sockeye" or "Pink." I would like to have you clarify your fat statements. My nutritional book doesn't break down cann- ed salmon into varieties, but simply states canned salmon is 13.2 per cent fat by weight. Dear Reader First, cann- ed salmon does not have add- ed oil. You are right on that. Many fish are very low in fat. and when canned, oil is added for the taste. But. you Can get water-packed tuna in most places. It makes a lot of difference whether you are talking about the percentage of the weight as fat or the percentage of the calories that are fat, because a gram of fat contains a lot more calories than a gram of protein. Here's how the main types of canned salmon stack up (values include liquids and solids in the 1. Chinook (king) 14 per cent of its weight is fat: 60 per cent of its calories are fat. 2. Chum i 5.2 per cent of its weight is fat: 30.4 per cent of its calories are fat. 3. Coho (silver) 7.1 per cent of its weight is fat: 42.2 per cent of its calories are fat. 4. Pink ihumpback) 5.9 per cent of its weight is fat: 38.1 per cent of its calories are fat. 5. Sockeye (red> 9.3 per cent of its weight is fat: 49.4 per cent of its calories are fat. These figures are based on the U.S. Department of Agriculture. For more infor- mation on composition Of foods you can, get my book, "What You Need to Know- About Food and Cooking for Health (Viking Dear Dr. Lamb Perhaps the reader who wrote about his peridbntal problem with his teeth would be encouraged to know that in 1934 I was also told that I would lose all my teeth in three months. I went to another dentist who gave me the treatment you describ- ed in your column. After 40 years of treating my teeth every six months. I finally had to get a partial denture for only four molars at the age of 69." Dear Reader Thank you for your thoughtful letter. Other readers have also written to tell their ex- perience of losing the bone around their teeth and reported having saved their teeth for 25 years or longer. The point is that if you have loose teeth, bleeding gums, and bone loss, something can usually be done about it rather than have your teeth pulled. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this new- spaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on balanced diet, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for "Balanc- ed Diet" booklet. Fun with figures By J. A. H. HUNTER "I got this for a quarter from a kid at said Terry. "An old German hundred mark bill." Tom looked. "No real value at all now, but it's worth keeping." The boy nodded. ''Sure. Dad. but he showed me a funny thing about its serial number." he declared. "If you put a 3 at each end. giving it the two extra digits, you mul- tiply it by 61. And it's the smallest number that works that way." What was the number? Thanks for an idea to G. R. Cussen. Brooklyn. New York. (Answer Monday) Yesterday's answer: CHANGE was 106325. GENERAL RETIRES TAMPA. Fla. lAPi Gen. Bruce Palmer, commander of the U.S. Army Readiness Command, is retiring at age 61. one year beyond the ar- my's mandatory retirement age. Melvin Laird as defence secretary made an exemption for him in 1973 so he could be assigned to the readiness com- mand, with headquarters at MacDill Air Force Base. Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN c 1974, The Trib'jnt N'orth-South vulnerable. North deals. NORTH AA K J 10 6 K 9 6 WEST EAST 41097432 V65 4K8532 AQ103 SOUTH 46 V A Q J 10 3 A J 7 7542 The bidding: North East South West 1 Pass 1V Pass 2NT Pass Pass 3V Pass 4 NT Pass Pass 6V Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Eight of We have often written about the inadvisability of taking a finesse when there are alterna- tive lines available. However, on occasion it can be right to take a finesse that apparently stands to gain nothing. Looking at all the hands, the best contract for North-South is six clubs played by by North it might be defeated with a diamond lead. Since there was no way to get to the perfect spot because of the opening bid, six hearts by South was as good a contract as any and was bolstered by 100 honors. With no really good lead, West made the mildly decep- tive attack of the eight of spades. Declarer won in dummy with the king, drew three rounds of trumps ending in dummy, and took the diamond finesse. Unfortunate- ly West held the king, and since South could not avoid losing a club trick, he was down one. Declarer blew the contract with his play to the very first trick. Despite the fact that he held a singleton spade, he should have finessed dummy's jack. The play cannot possible cost for, if the finesse fails, declarer can discard two clubs on the ace and king of spades, and he would still be on a diamond finesse for his contract. In this case, however, the spade finesse wins. Now declarer can draw trumps, dis- card two clubs on the high spades and take the diamond finesse for an overtrick. This seemingly useless spade finesse actually increases de- clarer's winning possibilities by Whereas the diamond finesse is strictly an even money proposition, declarer builds the odds in his favor to by playing for one of two the diamond or the win.

Ask Andy BLOOD Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encylopedia to Shel- ly Barnes, age 12. of Tulsa, Oklahoma, for her question: What do red and white blood cells do? The red cells are more or less alike and their main duties are to letch and carry oxygen. The white blood cells come in several different shapes and sizes. Some are designed to tight germs and various enemy invaders. Not all of their many duties are fully understood. Also present in the flowing bloodstream are special little cells that help to seal and heal open wounds. Each drop of wondrous blood in your body is a watery straw colored liquid, teem- ing with a variety of separate floating cells. Most of them are red blood cells, shaped like tiny saucers with thick rims. They contain a sub- stance called hemoglobin, which is capable of remarkable chemical ac- tivities. Its molecules can grab and loosely hold atoms of oxygen. They release this fuel to the body's busy cells in exchange for molecules of their waste carbon dioxide. Day and night, the bloodstream carries its floating red cells on a ceaseless parade between the lungs and the busy cells. On each return trip to the lungs, they exchange their waste carbon dioxide molecules for supplies of fresh oxygen. These cells are vivid red when they carry oxygen and blueish when they carry carbon diox- ide. When blood flows from a wound, it takes oxygen from the air and becomes red. There are enough teeming red cells to color the pale li- quid and conceal the white cells. There is one white cell of some sort for about 700 of the reds. Some of the white cell types are called granulocytes because microscope slides reveal that they contain little granules. There are several types of these grainy white cells, all employed in some way by the body's defense systems. When an enemy bacteria enters the body, it is pursued and engulfed by one of the white blood cells. In some cases, the white cell oozes itself through the wall of a blood vessel and pursues the enemy through the cell tissues. When the body is at- tacked by a serious infection, enormous numbers of white cells are lost in the fray. This triggers the manufacture of more and still more white Cells to carry on the good work. Other white cells rally to cope with pockets of infected tissue. Others specialize in at- tacking only certain enemy agents. They may be remodel- ed to cope with this or that enemy should it attack again at a later date. When a doctor suspects an infection, he takes a Count of the white blood cells. If the number is higher than normal, he knows that the body is manufacturing ex- tras to replace those lost in combat. Also present in the bloodstream are mini-mini cells called platelets. Their special duty is to cope with blood flowing from an open wound. When they come in contact with the air, in some mysterious way they create fibrous material which causes the blood to thicken, or clot.
