Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 26-THE LETHBRIDQB HERALD Wedneedey, February 6. 1874 Lawrence Lamb MUD. Dear Or. Lamb It is but is it really necessary for food to accompany vitamins into the body? I am 68 and live alone on no schedule whatever. Whenever I wake up I want coffee at once, and it would be easy to take my supplemental pill right then. But, I almost never want to eat for an hour or two. By that time I've forgotten all about vitamins. Directions say "During or after breakfast." I've read that food allows vitamins to be absorbed and used properly by the body. It makes sense. Dear Reader The water soluable vitamins will be absorbed whether or not you eat food. A major portion of the fat soluble ones will too. There is some fat in the bile that normally flows into the intestine in healthy persons. The fat in the bile is manufactured by the liver and can be formed from carbohydrates, excess proteins or even alcohol. You might enhance the aborption of vitamins by eating. However, you will still absorb some fat soluble vitamins even if you remained fasting all day, which I don't recommend. If you absorb the vitamins, once they are in the bloodstream they are used for processing any food you eat thereafter. Many of them (but not all) are stored at least for a short time in the tissues. This includes the water soluble vitamins. The real purpose of vitamins is to enter into formation of enzymes. The enzymes are then used in the chemical process of extracting energy from your food. These enzymes with their vitamin components are used even in the fasting state to process the body fat that is used for energy. Or, they are used in processing the stored glycogen (animal starch) to release energy. Vitamins are not a source of energy themselves, they, simple enable the body to process foods to release energy. Food processing isn't an instantaneous process. It takes hours. The whole system tends to level out absorption. So, if you must, take your vitamin supplement when you first get up. Dear Dr. Lamb In regards to osteoporosis, are some nationalities more prone tft this ailment? Is it inherited? Dear Reader Yes, the Anglo Saxon woman is particularly prone to this disease. The Japanese woman is even more likely to have softening of her bones as she gets older. The Black woman tends to be resistant to it. While Anglo Saxon men have this problem about 20 year later than women, they do develop it if they live long enough. The Black male seldom, if ever, has this problem. Some authorities think the differences are really related to the size of the skeleton. Remember osteoporosis is literally dissolving bones. If you have a very large skeleton it takes longer to rob it of its calcium. There is no direct inheritance characteristics, but you can see that since body type tends to be inherited that those individuals who are small boned as a family characteristic may be more apt to have osteoporosis later in life. One good preventive measure is to be sure you have enough calcium in your diet. Women on a calcium deficient diet are much more likely to have the 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 cholesterol, send SO cents to the same address and ask for "Cholesterol" booklet. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 7 Your birthday today: Early expansive enterprises run into consolidation phases and are reorganized into more coherent, efficient ventures. Personal relations ride with the tides, suffering no deterioration where they are based on sincere feeling.

PISCES (Feb. 19 March A constant companion sets up resistance to your program. Take this in stride and attend to business, as quite a good deal of progress is feasible. 1974, The Chicago Tribune Ask Andy THEY DO DIFFER Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Julie Bunker, age 12, of Grande Rapids, Minnesota, for her question: How .do lizardi differ from salamanders? Zoologists tell us that lizards are reptiles and salamanders are amphibians. Both tribes are cold-blooded creatures that have lived on earth through hundreds of millions of years. At a quick glance, a salamander looks very much like a smallish lizard. But actually, their squat little bodies are very different and so are their life stories. A lizard has a scaly skin, strong enough to shed the rain and protect him from drying out in the sunshine. He is a warmth-loving reptile. The salamander has a soft skin, moist with clammy mucus. It can absorb dissolved oxygen from water and from moisture in the damp air. But it cannot protect its owner from dry air and bright sunshine. He must live in moist shady surroundings, preferably near a stream or pond. He is called an amphibian because life is shared with water and dry land. Chances are, the lizard has claws on his tiny toes. The salamander's toes may be tipped with soft little pads, but he has no clws. The lizards' or so reptilian relatives include all the snakes and crocodiles, the turles and the nine-foot-long Kotnodo dragon who weighs up to 300 pounds. The salamander's or so amphibian relatives include all the frogs and toads, a variety of dainty little newts plus some buy mod poppies and hellbenders. Just a touch of your finger can tell yon which is which, for toe lizards scaly akin is dry and the bumpy frrofcim skin of the salamander is moist and clammy. Bat the really insurmountable difference lies in the way they live. And their different family life styles are related to the long stories of then- family trees. Way back in Devonian days, some 350 minion years ago, a few fishy creatures flopped onto the dry land. Most of them perished. But a few managed to gulp down oxygen from the survive out of the water. They were amphibian ancestors, the very first backboned animals who left the ancient seas for life on the dry land. However, only the adult amphibians performed this bold miracle. They returned to the water to lay their eggs. Their hatchlings lived through a fishy stage, with only gills to take .oxygen from the water. When they graduated to the adult stage, the gills were traded for air-breathing lungs. The salamanders and other amphibians still lay jellified eggs in water or moisture and go through a fishy childhood. The first reptiles arrived on land several million years later. And they laid eggs with tough shells, able to survive out of water. Their young ones hatched with air-breathing lungs, ready to live all their lives on the dry land. ran of H< bo to AakAndv, P.O.
