Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 15, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 36 THE LETHBfllDQE HERALD Saturday, February 15, 1975 Ask Andy CAUSES OF DECAY Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Tracey Robinson, age 12, of North Vancouver, B.C., Canada, for her question: What causes substances to decay? Most of us tend to shun decaying substances. As usual, this attitude is about halfway sensible. For ex- ample, there is no reason to shudder and feel stricken with horror. But decaying sub- stances usually harbor germs and other pests and it is wise to' refrain from handling such stuff as rotting garbage with bare hands. Nature is an excellent housekeeper on a global scale. Living things create countless tons of waste materials every day. However, nothing is dis- carded, and numerous operations work to recycle all materials back into useful production. The most impor- tant of these garbage disposal projects is the process of decay. Animals produce waste materials and eventually depart, leaving their dead bodies. Trees shed their leaves, and finally their woody trunks become too weak to stand. Every day the world of nature is littered with a large assortment of waste materials. Every day all sorts of decaying processes break apart these used sub- stances to be reused and recycled throughout the land of the living. Usually the decaying process is started by larger creatures and finished by mini organisms, too small to be seen. The bodies of sizable animals may be partly con- sumed by vultures and other carrion eaters. The crumbs may be consumed by various beetles, mites and an assort- ment of other soil dwelling insects. Earthworms feast on fallen leaves. These visible projects remove sizeable chunks of garbage frqm the landscape. But tons of crumbly waste are left behind; This material provides food for a multitude of microscopic plants and animals. Some are molds and mildews. Most of them are decay bacteria of various -types: As nutrients are ab- sorbed, molecules built by liv- ing plants and animals are broken apart into simpler sub- stances. Normal soil teems with assorted decay bacteria that break up plant cells. Some of the simpler materials are reused by living plants to build more of their hydrocar- bons. Soil also contains decay bacteria that release smelly gases as they break up animal wastes. Some of these bacteria are unfriendly germs but eventually the messy decaying material is converted to dusty dirt. by chil- dren of Herald roidcn malltd to Alk Andy, P.O. Box. 785, Huntingtoh California 92648. (Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1973) Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb Is honey more beneficial to one's health than cane sugar? Does sugar have a tendency to cause.gas to form? Which is more fattening, to use? Dear Reader There is a lot of nonsense around about both sugar and honey. Neither have any great health benefits and neither are particularly harmful to anyone in good health, other than providing too many calories that can lead to obesity and its problems. There are three single sugars. They are glucose, fructose, and galactose. Or- dinary table sugar, succrose, is a double sugar and is made up by joining glucose and fruc- tose together into a double sugar. Before it can be ab- sorbed through the intestinal wall into your bloodstream, it must be broken down into the single sugars, glucose and fructose. Honey contains glucose and fructose, too, but they are already separated into single sugars: This means they can: be absorbed directly into the bloodstream without being broken apart. Obviously, once the table sugar is broken into glucose and fructose, it is no different than the honey sugars of glucose and fructose. The only people, then, who benefit from using honey rather than table sugar are those who do not have the enzyme in the intestine to split the double sugar of cane or beet sugar into glucose and fructose single sugars. This is a fairly rare condition. As you get older there is a loss of enzyme activity, and I wouldn't totally discount that honey may have less of a tendency to cause gas than sugar in later years. Both can be fermented to release gas. Because honey is literally glucose and fructose diluted with water, it does contain .fewer calories per gram or teaspoon than table sugar. Sugar is almost free of water. However, you could dilute the sugar with water and you are at the same level. In brief, it will take more honey to produce the same sweetness you are used to from table sugar. Neither honey nor table sugar provide any significant amounts of vitamins, minerals or needed bulk for your diet. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this news- paper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on balanced diet, send 50 cents and a long self addressed stamped envelope to the same address and ask for the "Balanced Diet" booklet. Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H.
