Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, Dcctmbtr 10, 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D. EXERCISE DEPENDS ON YOUR HEALTH Dear Dr. Lamb I am 67 years old and in good health except for angina pectorls which I've had for 15 years. I look younger than my age, according to others. I take nitroglycerin with me at all times and periodically take Isordil. My angina doesn't bother me too much except when I overeat, take too much exercise or walk too much. I seem to be able to do things much better on an empty stomach. My gall bladder was removed in 1962. There is so much talk from everywhere, from doctors, dieticians and others, that people with heart trouble should take exercise and walk a great deal. How can I do this when I have to ride to the mail box to mail a letter? If I walk around the block I am not actually out of breath, but there is some panting and chest pains are on the way. What shall I do? I am five-feet ten and a half and weigh a little less than 170 pounds stripped. Your advice will be appreciated. Dear Reader How much exercise a person should do depends entirely on his medical condition. Certainly no one should do exercise that will cause chest pain (angina) or shortness of breath. Those discussions about exercise apply to people who do NOT have angina pains. Considering the length of time you have had angina and the limited exercise you can do before causing chest discomfort, I should think you are probably not able to increase the blood flow to your heart muscle. When you exercise even a little bit it works your heart too hard for the amount of blood that can reach the heart muscle. There is probably not much you can do about this except to limit your exercise below the level that causes pain or shortness of breath and take your medicines. Don't let other people try to tell you how much good walking will do for you. Let your doctor decide as it applies to your case. Now. I'm one of those people who think that walking is good for most people and that exercise is great. But. there are exceptions. Exercise, like everything else including medicines, has to be used in the right person in the right way to be useful. Your observation that you can do more on an empty stomach is accurate. With less severe heart disease it doesn't make much difference. But digesting food increases the work of the heart. Eating plus exertion overloads your heart. So, you have made an important observation that applies to you. Walk before meals, not afterward. Now, another thing you could do that will help is to decrease your body weight. Your weight for your height suggests that you have a few extra pounds of fat you could do without. The less you weigh the less work your heart will have to do when you start pushing that body around the block. Anyone with such a problem should get rid of every ounce of fat they have around the middle and the extra padding on the seat. Many a patient with angina pain from heart limitations can do much more or be free of pain by really getting rid of ALL the fat. Of course, if you smoke or drink lots of coffee, tea or colas you would be well advised to stop these things. Your history of living with angina pectoris for 15 years, though, should be encouraging to many people who have this problem. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on losing weight, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Losing Weight" booklet. ZOO GIFTS ARRIVE HONG KONG (AP) A chartered airliner carrying two white rhinoceroses for the Peking Zoo arrived here from London Sunday. The rhinos, a male and a female, are gifts from the London Zoo, recipro- cating for two giant pandas the Chinese gave the London institution this year. Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN AND OMAR SHARIF 197< Chicago Trltjunt North-South vulnerable. North deals. NORTH K6 A1086 1083 J1094 WEST EAST 4QJ10 4987542 f KQ W543 764 QJ92 K 8 5 3 2 4 Void SOUTH A3 J972 AK5 4 A Q 7 6 The bidding: North East South West Pass Pass 1 NT Pass 2 4 Pass 2 Pass 3 9 Pass 4 V Pass Pass Pass Opening lead: Queen of 4. West made what appeared to be a risky switch to defeat South's heart game. How- ever, there was no element of danger in the had been "told" to do so by his partner's play of the cards. After South opened the bidding with one no trump, North checked on his part- ner's major suit holdings by using the Stayman Con- vention. When South showed a four-card suit. North did not have quite enough to go to game. He showed his interest by rais- ing to three hearts and South, who had an absolute maximum no trump open- ing, continued on to four. West led the queen of spades, and declarer won in his hand to lead a low heart towards dummy. West followed with the queen, taken by dummy's ace. On this trick. East played the five! The ten of hearts went to West's king, and East completed the echo by play- ing the three. After careful thought. West shifted to a low club and East ruffed. No matter how declarer turned, he still had to lose a trick in each minor suit for down one. What induced West, to .shift to a club, which could have cost a trick had de- clarer started witii the ace queen bare? East's play in the trump suit. By playing high-low on the first two rounds of trumps, East signalled to his partner that he held three trumps. However, the trump echo conveys more than just that. On this hand, it cannot be of much use to West to know that his partner has three trumps. That was an in- ference available from the bidding. The trump echo con- veys the additional informa- tion that the player has the ability to ruff. It did not take West long to work out that the' only suit his partner would be able to ruff was clubs. Hence the shift. Without the ruff, declarer has no trouble making the contract. He can win any return, draw the last trump and concede a club and a diamond in addition to his trump loser.

Ask Andy SHIVERING Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Koreen Bender, age 11, of Carlton, Minn., for her question: What makes us shiver and get goose bumps? The ways of the human body are wondrous indeed. What's more, most of its miracles go on without our knowledge and often it's mighty hard to understand them. For ex- ample, most attacks of shivers and goose bumps oc- cur when the weather is cold. However, they also may occur when we suddenly get scared half out of our wits. The skin is very, very much alive and in contact with all sorts of other busy organs in- side the body. In general, it acts as a smooth, waterproof covering between the inside and the outside. Its sensitive nerves also react to heat, cold and other outside situations and they signal reports to interested organs inside the body. On a cold day, the skin receptors send signals to the hypothalarnus part of the brain, whose business it is to regulate the body's temperature. Orders are issued to relax and contract the muscles below the skin, causing shivering spasms. Muscular exercise of any sort gives off heat. If we just sit around and refuse to exercise in cold weather, the body does the best it can. It orders a shivering 'spell and this muscular exercise makes us a little warmer. Goose flesh or goose bumps also occur when the body is too cold for comfort. In this case, tiny muscles near the surface of the skin are ordered to contract. They squeeze up to form little humps and bumps. At the same time, blood is withdrawn from the skin sur- face, perhaps to prevent warmth from escaping. Shivering and goose flesh also occur when a patient suf- fers the ups and downs of a raging fever. First the skin is ordered to release streams of perspiration. As this moisture dries in the air, it takes heat from the skin and the patient cools down. Then the ups and downs of the fever change and the patient becomes too cool. So the shivering remedy is used to add warmth from muscular exercise. And often at this time the patient gets a bumpy attack of goose flesh. The hypothalarnus brain center acts as a sort of built-in thermostat, keeping a cons- tant check on the body's temperature. When things get too warm, it orders per- spiration, which cools as it dries on the skin. When things get too cool, it orders shivers and goose bumps to add warmth and conserve the body's heat. A sudden scare can cause goose bumps and send shivers down the spine. In the world of furry mammals, the goose flesh has an extra use. The lit- tle bumps cause the hairs to stand up straight. The frightened animal seems much bigger than he really is and often this scares away his enemy. by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
