The firm denied the charge. Proxmire relayed to the FDA accusations that hundreds of mink have died after being fed Kellogg's products. He said he was especially alarmed because of informa- tion that one-fifth of the con- tent of Kellogg's mink cereals is made up of discarded Kel- logg's breakfast cereals, ori- ginally manufactured for hu- man consumption. The Battle Creek, Mich., firm said in a statement it is cer- tain there is no mercury in any of its cereal products, either those consumed by mink or those sold for human use. The statement said that in November 1970, the firm sub- mitted a representative sam- ple of its in- clude Kellogg's Corn Flakes and Rice testing by the Wisconsin Alumni Re- search Foundation Institute, which found no traces of cury, in any of the products the company reported. Proxmire said three indepen- dent testing laboratories have found evidence of mercury, lead or insecticide chemicals in the mink cereals.

(1971: By The Chicago Tribune) LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Rheumatoid arthritis affects whole bodv Dear Dr. Lamb I am a 30-year-old female who has just been told I have rheumatoid arthritis in my feet and bands. Would you explain what rheu- matoid arthritis is and what help is available? Dear Reader Rheumatoid arthritis an inflammation of the joints that causes swelling. A joint isn't just a junction of two bones. The ends of the bones are enclosed in a mem- brane or capsule filled with fluid. We call this the joint space. Tips of the bones within the joint space are covered with cartilage. Rheumatoid ar- thritis causes inflammation of the entire joint space, causing pain and swelling of the joint. As the inflammation progress- es it damages the cartilage and destroys the normal joint struc- ture, leading to major deformi- ties. The range of motion of the bones involved in the inflamed joint may be limited, causing an individual to be disabled. Rheumatoid arthritis should not be confused with degenera- tive arthritis which is usually related to wear and tear as- sociated with increasing age. Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Bob Houst- man, age 12, of Duluth, Min- nesota for his question: Irish elk Most likely our Neolithic an- cestors hunted him in Ireland and other parts of Northern Europe. This was during one of the false warm spells that visit- ed the temperate zones be- :ween the cruel ice ages. His fossil remains were found in modern times, preserved in the peat bogs of Ireland. Nobody mows when or why this huge and lordly animal became ex- tinct. But the tragedy occurred many thousands of years ago, long before our industrial pol- lution threatened the survival of countless other species. The magnificent Irish elk said goodbye to the world sometime during or between the ice ages of the past million years. We know more or less what he was like from his fossil remains and by studying similar deer 3iat survived to modern times. He was called an elk because iis bones and his immense ant- lers proved him to be much larger than the usual deer of Europe. Scientists tell us that le was indeed a member of the true deer family Cervidae. to which the elk also belongs. But the long gone Irish elk was more closely related to the mod- ern fallow deer. His outstanding feature was lis enormous crown of antlers. They were palmated. shaped like giant hands with wide spreading palms and prongs like curved fingers. Several fos- sil specimens proved that the antlers of the Irish elk spread up to 11 feet wide. They were at least three feet wider than the palmated antlers of ourj sturdy bull mocie. The Irish elk had to be a big strong ani- mal to support such head gear. Herds of fallow deer are still wild m a few countries. But he most famous ones live shel- :ered. semi tame lives in Eng- ish parks. They are those pic- ture book. brown deer dapoled with white spots. The bucks stand about three foefc at shoulder level and sprout very ornate palmated antlers, which are shed every season. In winter they lose their showy spots and wear darker coats. The huge Irish left us no! evidence about his clothing. But the chilly climate called for; thick, shaggy coats. In his world, even the long gone rel- atives of the elephant and the rhino wore wuoily coats. Most likely herds of Irish elk browsed on woodsy slopes and grazed in grassy valleys, somewhat like Park hearings dates fixed OTTAWA (CPi Public hearings on provisional master plans for Banff. Jasper, Yoiio and KcrKmay national parks will held in April, it was an- nounced today. The hearings arc scheduled for Calgary April 19 and 20; Ed- April 22 and 2.1: and Vancouver April 2fi. Purpose of the hearings is to outline ulans (or the parks .v'.ij lo rfrr-ivc oral and written hnf'f.s on !he proposals. Separate will he held later on plans for the towasites at Banff and Jasper. the favorite haunts of the fal- low deer but much colder. The woolly mammoths and rhi- nos, the thickly furred saber- toothed tiger and several other warmly clothed animals also departed, somewhat mysterious- ly, during the ice ages. Some people think that those enor mous, unwieldy antlers made life impossible for the Ir- ish elk. But scientists suspect that he became extinct for oth- er reasons. During his long reign, he saw the wolves and other large carnivores grow big- ger and stronger, faster and more cunning. Perhaps they hunted him to his doom or maybe the weather wiped him out. Perhaps his herds were trapped in sheltered valleys, ei- ther when a new ice age came or when the old glaciers melted and turned the solid ground into soggy-boggy swamps.

(Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1971) Rheumatoid arthritis is fairly common and occurs often in young adults. The average age at onset is 35 years. It is three times as common in women as in men. About five million peo- ple in the United States have this problem and it occurs throughout the world. Rheumatoid arthritis affects the whole body, not just the joints. Ofteu it begins subtly as mild attacks of fatigue and stiffness and These episodes may go away and then recur, gradually becom- ing more severe. The swelling becomes more persistent. There may be nodules near the joints. F e v e r is common and an anemia may occur. The disease often has remis- sions for long periods of time. This makes it difficult to be certain that any treatment was useful or if the remission would have occurred spontaneously. Your doctor can use special tests to confirm the presence of rheumatoid activity. We really don't know what causes the disease but the best bets are that it is a reaction to a virus or a complex allergic reaction of the body to an in- fecticn and its own immune mechanism. I'll discuss another day a lot of important aspects of treat- ment. One of the most impor- tant is the correct use of sim- ple aspirin. In most people aspirin is as effective as or better than any other medicine. It takes a lot more than re- quired to relieve a simple headache. The goal is not just not to relieve pain. The large doses of aspirin diminish or control the inflammation. This is very important since the in- flammation is what causes de- struction of the joint. A person being treated with large doses of aspirin must continue the doctor's recommendation even after the pain is relieved. ONLY YOUR DOCTOR can de- termine how much aspirin you should take if you are going to be treated with it or a related medicine.
