Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 40 THE LiTHBRIOQE HERALD Saturday, Dtcwnbw 7, 1974 Ask Andy CHLOROPHYLL Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Derek Stevenson, age 10, of St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada, for his question: What exactly is chlorophyll? Chlorophyll colors our summer lawns and grassy meadows. It adds special tints of blue green or gray green, golden green or green green to each of the different plants. It works with the beaming sun to create basic food for the plant world and the plant world feeds the animal world. Chlorophyll also provides the breathable oxygen for all the plants and Ecology explains how all the plants and animals in a neighborhood depend upon each other to keep going. However, all of them also need a few global supplies, such as water, breathable air and a certain amount of warm sunshine. The earth provides the air; chlorophyll makes it breathable. The sun provides the warmth; chlorophyll uses its energy to feed all living things upon the earth. The study of chlorophyll takes us down to the miniworld of atoms, molecules and busy little bodies too small for our eyes to see. The place to look for it is inside any green leaf. For chlorophyll is the gorgeous greenery of the thriving plant world. Its busy little bodies are called chloroplasts, and it takes about 100 of these little flat disks to measure an inch. Inside the plant cells they crowd in jellified cytoplasm, and the chlorophyll extracted from a leaf is a green liquid. Each cell contains one or more chloroplasts. But scien- tists estimate that in the teeming cells of an average elm leaf there may be one billion of these busy little green bodies. Through the daylight hours, chlorophyll uses energy from sunlight to convert water and gaseous carbon dioxide into basic sugary plant food. This miraculous sunshine recipe is called photosynthesis and until quite recently nobody really knew the secrets of this magic- recipe, though everyone knew that it provides oxygen and basic plant food on a global scale. The plants use dissolved chemicals from the soil, plus sugar produced by chlorophyll, to create the thousands of different sub- stances they need to grow and multiply. Most animals feed on plant food, and meat eating animals dine on the plant eaters. Photosynthesis uses up the waste carbon dioxide that all living things breathe out. Dur- ing the complicated sugar making recipe, it gives off ox- ygen as a waste product. On a sunlit day, the forests pour countless tons of breathable oxygen into the air and the breezes waft it around and around the globe. Chlorophyll molecules are packages of atoms of carbon and hydrogen, nitrogen, ox- ygen and magnesium. They are similar to the molecules that color our red blood cells. In many ways they are quite different. But both chlorophyll and red blood perform chemical switches with ox- ygen and carbon dioxide. OuMttoiM by chil- dren of should melted to Art Andy, P.O.

Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I am very anxious to find out as much as I can about Crohn's disease. My daughter has this' and there is very little information about it. She. is quite depressed after taking Predmsone treatment. Is this considered a serious il- lness? Can it ever be cor- rected or cured or does one always suffer with it? Can a person lead a normal life? At this point she cannot hold down a full time job as she never knows when the pain will come and has had to give up two jobs because of this. Dear Reader Fortunately this is a fairly rare disease. It is common enough, though, that President Eisenhower had it for many years before he was operated upon during his Presidency. The obstruc- tion he developed then was a complication and usually only occurs after years of problems. The disease is also called regional enteritis The common form is an inflammation of the terminal region of the small intestine where it joins the colon in the lower right part of the ab- domen. The inflamed part is swollen and may cause a mass. Its location causes right lower abdominal pain and the attack resembles acute appen- dicitis in many respects. We do not know what causes the disease, even though its characteristics are well known. No virus, bacteria or other common abnormal process has been identified that produces the inflam- mation.
