Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 _ THE UTHBRIDGE HMAID August 1973 LAWRENCE E. M. D. Some must limit protein Dear Dr. Lainb Can a per- son get an oversupply of protein and is it Dear Reader That is de- batable. Many of our food sour- ces don't contain just protei-y but often the high protein foods contain fats and other food ele- ments. To half the calories in ordinary whole is often called a high pro- tein are from fat. It would be just as appropriate to call whole milk a high fat food as it would be to call it a high protein food. The same can be said for lots of poultry and even some fish. There are some people who need to limit their particularly if they have medi- cal problems such as gout or kidney disease. Otherw i s within reasonable ex- cess intake of protein the daily requirements really Isn't harmful. If you take more protein than the body to either grow new tissues or replace old it is simply converted by the body to glu- cose and may be metabolized as any other or the sugar from the protein can be con- verted to fat and stored. Many people don't realize that the body has the capacity to convert proteins to sugar. The liver is the great metabo- Fun with figures By J. A. H.

Part of the fat molecule can be con- verted to and sugar can be converted to fat Within fat and other che- micals can be combined with the nitrogen stripped off amino acids and finally new proteins. Our bodies are pretty miracu- lous and they have a superb mechanism to convert the different foods we eat into what the body needs for build- or into or into en- ergy which are fat. Dear Dr. Lamb One of your columns on meats caus- ing cancer has caused a great deal of commotion at our house. Our teen-age who reads your column vows and declares that you stated that all especial- ly cause cancer. Did you say He has refused to eat neat since ha saw your and he really believes every word you say. I reason with him Please write and try to convince him that somehow he misunderstood. We do not have a copy of the ar- and he can't remember exactly what it he -just repeats that meat causgs ctn cer. Dear Reader I can well imagine your distress. I did not say that all meats cause and I do not believe that they do. Your son has mis- interpreted my remarks about cured meats. This is the contro- versy over the use of nitrates which are used in cold cuts and cured hams to protect against the growth of germs that cause botulism. There's a possibility that if you use too much of these they may increase the likelihood of can- cer. This- is a raging controver- sy which has not even been re- solved between scientists. These remarks are jfcTled to cured meats. It has noJTiing to do with normal lean beef or raw which has not been mutton or other meats. I don't think there's any evi- dence about meat and cancer which justifies a person refus- ing to eat beef in or pork or mutton. The controversy in- volves only the cured meats. In view of the high prices of meats perhaps your son's idea isn't so bad at that. Send your questions to Dr. in care of this news- P.O. Box Radio City New N.Y. 10019.

How do sharks A few of the sharks lay leath- peculiar shaped known to beach combers as mermaid purses But the great majority give birth to -well- developed youngsters. This seems odd because bearing live young is said to be more ad- vanced than egg laying. Y e t most all the more advanced bony fishes lay eggs and most of the more primitive gristly sharks give birth to live babies. f Our warm and tropical seas are patrolled by some 250 medium and small shark spec- ies. The giant is t h e well-be- haved whale often 45 feet long. The real tigers of the sea are in the ten to 35 foot range. These menacing rnon sters bear live young. The gis and some of the small sharKy cousins lay eggs In every species there are male and female sharks and the eggs are fertilized inside the female's body. The devel- opment of the embryo differs from species to species. Some females lay broods of one by one. Each egg as plentilally supplied with nourishing yolk and sealed inside a horny case. In most of the live-bearing the eggs remain inside the mother's body until they then emerge as frisky youngsters. the em- bryos of the smooth dogfish are attached to the mother's bloodstream and nourished in- Today in history By THE CANADIAN PRESS Princess Patricia's Cana- dian Light one of the last private was raised 59 years ago to- A Ham- ilton a Montreal busi- nessman.

The frisky young- sters are born after about ten months and each measures 14 inches. Other small sharks include the catsbark and the swell who swallows air and swells up like a balloon. The egg cases of most catsharks are often with a spike at each corner and sometimes with trailing ten- drils. One species lays fancy capsules shaped like spinning tops with curly The little spotted dogfish also lays eggs. The female black-tip shark is only three feet long. She gives birth to a parr of 18-inch twins. A female tiger shark may be 18 feet long. She also gives birth to 18-inch though there are from ten to 80 young- sters in a litter. A 14-foot thresher shark bears a pair of live each measuring three feet or more. The female sand shark is about ten feet long and she bears one live infant at a time. The embryo is nourished inside her body on egg yolks and the newborn youngster is very well- developed. The mild-mannered whale shark is the largest fish in the sea. He enjoys a docile life in j tropical seas and the female lay eggs. Each horny capsule measures a foot long and three inches wide. It is thought that the giant shark lays her eggs in broods of 16 or so. And like all she lays them one by one.

Once in e there are desert showers and once in a while the rain dashes down in a deluge. Soon after it all the water disappears or so it seems. Actually a lot of it sinks down below the surface. There it collects among the deep rocks and gravel below. This-buried wat- er is called groundwater. And there is plenty of even under the driest deserts. In most deserts the ground- water is buried very often more than 300 feet down. But in a few the top level of the groundwater comes al- most to the surface. It forms an oasis where the roots of trees can grow down and drink. People dig wells and draw up this groundwater. Often they pipe it around the oasis to wat- er their fields and gardens.
