One might need to use a occasional flareup with my di- verticulosis. Would you please explain this condition to me. I'm on a low residue and am told to take a laxative every day. Is it necessary to have a doily Every bottle or can warns one that prolong- ed use of laxatives may result in dependency. Are laxatives the only Dear Reader Diverhcula are small herniated pockets along the intestine. Often they are along the left colon. These little side packets literally are are hermations of the inner lin- ing of the colon into pocket-like formations In many people they cause no in others they become inflam- med and produce symptoms similar to or they may even bleed. I have dis- cussed this problem before. Many authorities feel that di- verticula are associated with poor function of the spec- ifically spastic colon and con- stipation type problems. Dr. Denis Eurlatt feels that the lack of bulk in the American diet is the reason this problem is so common in our society. It's not very common in socie- ties that have a great deal of cereal fiber in their diet. His and have re- sulted in a change in thinking by masi doctors about what kind of diet a person should have to prevent or manage a problem of diverticulosis. Other than acute inflammatory prob- which are a special proo- most of these individuals are better off if they have a diet which contains an ap- preciable amount of bulk This is just the opposite of the low residue diet that you've men- tioned. The colon contracts in a rhythmic fashion to move the food residue along. If there's not much residue m the it overcontracts and goes into spasm. This starts off the chain of events that leads to spastic and related problems. By using something to provide sufficient such as the natural cereal fiber that should occur in eating whole cereals or unrefined this problem is avoided. Ihe diverticula are outgrowth of prolonged poor bowel func- tion. a chemical laxative is certainly not the answer to this problem. Bulk expander type laxatives are useful in a number of conditions and do not have the same harm- ful effects Chemical 1 a x- harmful effects. Chemical lax- atives propel food through the small intestine too rapidly and end up disturbing the function of the colon. Most specialists in gastroenterology would not rec- ommend a laxative regularly for a person who has diverti- cula. Quite the they would recommend a Jsowel training program directed to- ward prevention of spastic col- constipation and related problems. This is achieved by changing the at a suitable time to one that contains a sa- tisfactory amount of bulk and establishing regular bowel hab- bulk expander at a small tap water enema in the process of training the bowel. In a I do not agree with the type of program you're on if it is being provided to for a treatment of divertieulos- is. It is not the fcrm of treat- ment that I think most gastro- enterologists would recommend for constipation or spastic or ir- ritable colon. The chemical lax- ative habit usually leads to con- tinued problems with the bowei. Enterprise Send yonr questions to Dr. in care of this rfews- PO.. Box Radio City New York. N.Y. 10019.

Scientists searched for a long time be- fore deciding that our domesti- cated chickens are related to certain wild fowl that live in India. No one knows when peo- ple first domesticated but we know how and where our modern strains were de- veloped. Mcst experts agree that ths wild ancestors of our farm chickens were little red jungle fowl of India. These roost and nest in the great jungle trees and scratch for food on the jungle floor. They are pounced upon by hungry and mis- chievous monkeys steal their eggs. The little mother lays a dozen eggs at a trusting that at least a few of her chicks will survive long enough to grow up Lcng before the dawn of re- corded people figured out a better way to supply themselves with jungle fowl meat and eggs Perhaps the hunting game of hid-and-seek GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

These first domesticated fowl thrived and multipled because they were protected from pre- datory cats and monkeys. Their human owners were careful to leave some of their eggs and enough parents to keep a con- tinuing supply of jungle fowl within reach. Even the earliest farmers knew that superior animals tend to produce supsrior off- spring Ages it was custo- mary to select the best of ths flock for the future Through generations of selective breed- the domesticated chickens improved. They became larg- er and meatier than their wild jungle fowl re'athes and abo laid more eggs. We do not know how or when people persuaded their domes- tic chickens to lay more than a dozen eggs each year. But most likely when a mother hen laid more than the usual num- bsr of she was selected to produce more than her share of chicks. Some of the chicks would inherit her egg-laying ta- lent. The best of them often pro- duced still better egg and gradually all the domesti- cated flocks laid more and more eggs. Another theory suggests tbat the mctbsr hens felt more comfortable on a nest with a dozen or so eggs. As their human captors helped them- maybe the motherly hens laid extra striving i to keep a full nest. This ten- dency may have helped to pro- duce modem chickens that lay 200 eggs a year. Centuries ago. travelers to India took domestic chickens back home In people bred them to get the meaty Cochin and Brahma strains. Nowadays a good table bird weighs ten to 12 pounds. In Spain and Leghorn and Anddusian strains were devel- oped to lay 200 eggs a year. In 100 years ago peo- ple started to encourage both these qualities in their domes- tic chickens. These egg- include the speckled Ply- mouth ths white Whysn- dotte and the perky Rhode Island strains. Questions asked by Children of Herald readers should bf mailed to Ask P.O. Box 765.
