LAMB, M. D. Polyunsaturated fots are safe Dear Dr. Lamb Accord- ing to an article I read, the use of polyunsaturated oil in cook- ing is just as harmful to a per- son's health as saturated fats. The article states that heating to a normal degree and time in the average cooking resatur- atcs the fats or oil and actually contributes Lo the very condi- tion they are supposed to allevi- ate. In addition, the heated oils are toxic and even carcinogen- ic. Tho mail) point of the arti- cle is the negligence on the part of physicians in advising the use of polyunsaturated fats and oils to lower blood cholesterol without stressing that such oils and fals should not be heated or used in cooking. Is this an accepted medical position? Dear Reader NO! It is not an accepted medical position and is misinformation. In writ- ing on this point. Dr. Ancel Keys of the University of Min- nesota, w ho has long been a champion of polyunsaturated fats states. "Heating oils, as in ordinary cooking, or a rea- sonable reuse- of frying oils does not make them d'angerous. To this may I add that the Inter Society Commission on Heart Disease reported on diet Dec. l.i, 1970, and once again recommended limitation of fat turated fat (ype. This repre- sents more accurately accepted medical opinion. Even the dis- senters feel the evidence is strong enough that it is Ihe best advice that can be given at the present time. The changes in the diet that need to be accomplished lo meet the recommendations are not as difficult as many ima- gine. You can decrease the per- centage of fat iu a meal and still use meat. For example, i a lean roast is boiled, or pol roasted with the fat skimmec off the fluid and served with vegetables boiled with the meat. Ihe per cenC of calories from fat will be reduced. The problem is the Ameri- can habit of serving a potato with the meat garnished with a lot of butter, margarine or sour cream. If the food thai goes with soaked in the meat was grease or fat not salads were served with low-fat dressings made with polyunsa- fat, Hie meat issue wouldn't be so important. Serv- ing fish and chicken part of the time would balance out the dis- tribi'tion of various types ol fat. To a large extent, the prob- lem is not so much the fat that comes naturally in food, but the habit of artificially adding fat to naturally nonfat foods, and that about a third of the failure to serve a balanced diet, fat should be of the polyunsa-) and too much of everything.

If every gram of moisture were evaporated from the body of the 200 pound man, the dehydrated husk would weigh about 80 pounds. Naturally this ghastly misfortune would be fatal. Every living cell needs waler lo carry on its personal activities. Water is also essen- ial as a transportation sys- tem in the vital teamwork be- tween tissues and vital organs. The percentage of water for various biological functions must be so much and no more. Several complex systems op- erate continuously to keep these percentages in delicate balance. The average human body strives to maintain a water content of about 60 per cent. A chubby boy, padded with lay- ers of surplus fat, contains a lower percentage than normal. This is because the percentage of water in most fatty tissue is about 20 per cent, considerably lower than that in most tissues. The wateriest tissues are in the Drain which may come as a surprise. The water content of the brain's white matter is 70 jer cent. The surface gray mat- ,er. where the thinking is done. ,s 85 per cent water and so are tho nerves. These tissues must bo doused in moisture in order to tran.smit electrDcbomi- cal signals throughout Ihe body. Since the bleed is liquid, one might expect it to be the wa- teriest of the body's tissues. True, its content is 80 per cent, which is 20 per cent above the total average. But the nerve tissue and the brain's gray matter are wetter. One might the long lean cells of muscular tissue to be drier than average tissues. Actually their moisture content is about 73 per cent. They too require water to conduct fast traveling signals. The skin feels fairly dry to the touch. But tlu's is merely the thin surface layer above various layers of softer cells. The water content of the tola] skin is 70 per cent, the same as that of the liver. The kid- neys require a water content of 80 per cent to carry on their sifting and drainage operations. Hair and nails are mao'e from dead, inactive cells and their moisture content is not worth mentioning. One might suspect that the bones contain lillle cr no mois- ture because they are built from hard, durable cells. But the core oi a long bone is stuff- ed with nerves and blood ves- sclr embedded in active livnng cells. The average water con- tent of the skeleton is 25 to 30 per cent. This list of contents is incomplete without the connec- tive tissue that both links ?.nd partitions all the cells through- out the body. This all-impor- tant nettvork has a water con- tent of CO per cent, the same as that total content of the aver- age body. A living human body, of course, is above price. So the fact that 60 per cent of it is or- dinary water may come as a let-dcrwn What's more, all of its priceless ingredients are made rrcm common chemicals Oxy- gen and carbon. bMlrojcn and calcium and pbos- ihoruus 'nnkc up On per rent of it.1; nuilliuid'1 ('f niii-.nciilnus biologiuil substances.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 15711 Doctors blasted over VD reports OTTAWA (CP) Doctors are being urged to meet the "screaming emergency" of a rising rate of venereal disease infection by better reporting to public health authorities. One suggestion is for tele- phoned reports to be substituted for written forms indicating the source of infection. Dr. D. E. Wyalt, chief ol the Sludent Health Service al Mem- il University, St. John's, Mid., says the profession has failed in its legal duty to help check the spread of these dis- eases by gathering and report- ing necessaiy data. "Be sure of one thing though will be held responsible for this failure he writes in the current issue of the Newfoundland Medical As- sociation Newsletter. "Governments take credit for successes in public health hut lirninl Into thlo nlr To prrsrne your assets li Is Impcratlvo thai you return lu epailcs. doctors are blamed for the fail- ures.11 Dr. has distributed a questionnaire lo Newfoundland doctors asking them to say anonymously why they don't re- port VD cases to health authori- ties. lie also asks their opinions about a telephone reporting sys- tem. "This system could be used for more than VD il the demand warranted, but just now VD is a screaming emergency and we have to get moving." Latest Canadian figures on venereal disease that the incidence rose last year lo 159.3 per from HO A per in 1S69, mainly because of higher gonorrhoea infections. Canada had at least 3-1.000 cases of VD last year, but thi figiuo is considered to be only a small percentage of the real one because of inadequate report- ing.
