Vaccines made fi L-oni germs achievement; to be able to liolil dissonant views while retaining relations is belter. Learn more by watching than by asking. CANCEU (June 21 July B o i n fi perverse Isn't your By Lawrence Lamb, Dear Dr. Lamb In my reading class we were discuss- ing vaccines. I learned that in making a vaccine they include the germ from the disease that they are trying to prevent. Isn't it odd? Why should they put a germ in the body to prevent disease? I thought germs made you ill? Dear Header I suppose it does seem a little odd, but if you think that's odd, think of all the difficulties people had understanding illnesses in the days before they even knew germs existed. The vaccine is really made from a germ which has, been weakened so that it's less able to induce a full-blown illness in the individual. Some- times even dead germs are used since the chemicals in the dead germ initiate the body's defense mechanism to built up the body's immunity. In other instances, a germ from n related disease can cause the immunity. A good ex- ample of this is simple small- pox. In the early history of smallpox, the first vaccinations were made using germs from cowpox. The cowpox virus was similar enough to the human smallpox virus that if a person had been infected with it, he wouldn't develop smallpox. It was a lot better to have a min- or illness with cowpox than It was to have the deadly dis- ease of smallpox. In fact one of the things that led to the dis- covery of the smallpox vaccine was the observation that "milk- maids" seldom had smallpox. This leads me to add a loot' rote to your answer. Some months ago there was consid need croble scurry around the health circles of the world with a pro- clamation that smallpox wns ;ono forever. It was decided that people wouldn't smallpox vaccinations any more In many civilized coun- tries and since rarely someone would have a severe reaction lo them it would be well to dis- continue it entirely, The theme: was that finally the world had been rid of smallpox. Tills is dangerous thinking since virus- es and germs can live forever in remote isolated area. Then, suddenly, one day they find a favorable environment and ev- eryone knows that they've been there all along. That's exactly what happen- ed with smallpox. In (lie wake of the Pakistan-Bangaladesh war, smallpox broke out. Also smallpox has shown up in Yug- oslavia. In today's world with modern transportation a small outbreak of disease can be spread worldwide in a short length of time. Although many doctors wouldn't agree with me, I recommend that smallpox vaccinations be continued in the United States. Dear Dr. Lamb You had a column on popcorn and said it was good for people. Coconut oil is largely used in pop- ping popcorn-. Is this oil poly- unsaturated Dear Reader Definitely not. It contains more saturated fats than perhaps any other fat commonly available in the mar- ket. You should use either saf- flower oil or com oil. Both con- tain relatively little saturated fat and lots of polyunsaturated fat. finest quality, and today you aren't the only one with such tendencies. Just bear with yourself. LEO (Jllly J3-Aug.

The brain is the nerve center of the body. Tlic nerve center of a town is City Hall, with its courts and other municipal of- fices. Chances arc, it is the most impressive building in town, neatly landscaped and flying a colorful flag. One also might expect the brain to have a very impressive appearance, But this is not so. The ruler of everything that goes on in the ixxly resembles a large, pasty- colored walnut. The hrxiy protects its prec- ious brain in the bony skull.

The bidding is pre- sented as it occurred at the table where Massimo TJ'Alelio was seated South and CarniHo Pabis Tied was North for the Italians. South opened the bidding with one heart and West ov- crcalled with two clubs. North's raise to three hearts is competitive and not lore- ing in their methods. Eouth's lour diamond Wd was a mild slam try and when North merely returned to four hearts, the auction subsided.: West opened the king of clubs on which East dropped the seven.
