Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta YOUR HOROSCOPE Monday, February 26, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 15 By JEANE DIXON TUESDAY, FEB. 27 Your birthday today: Finding and living out your basic principles is a spontaneous process this year. Today's natives are a bit aloof, de- LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Take precautions ivhile in Mexico Dear Dr. Lamb - Is there j some sort of medication we could take during our next trip to Mexico that will prevent the well known Montezuma's revenge? We always go prepared with a cure but would much rather prevent the problem. A friend has suggested eating yogurt for three weeks bafore w^e leave. Does this make any sense? Dear Reader - The only sense the yogurt recommendation makes is nonsense. The yogurt idea got its emphasis many years ago when Elie Metchnikoff, a Russian scientist who had migrated to Paris, proposed that the colon contains lots of organisms which results in autointoxication producing illnesses and even aging. He thought yogurt might help in changing the type of germs present in the bowel. Metchnikoff's ideas concerning autointoxication and its relationship to yogurt have been soundly disproved. There remains a reservoir of yogurt enthusiasts who feel that it eliminates autointoxication. W h a t-ever yogurt does, it certainly will not prevent you from having infections of the bowel nor will it prevent you from having Montezuma's revenge. For travelling to Mexico, the best advice is use sensible precautions in what you eat and drink. This means drink distilled or bottled water. If you are in an area where this can't be obtained, boil your water two or three minutes before using it or you can put one or two drops (no more) of ordinary tincture of iodine, the kind you ordinarily get for wounds, into ""one--glass of water. This will cause the water to have an lodioated taste but it will purify It. Some of the other pills that are recommended as' water purifiers do not eliminate all the different infectious agents that can be present in water. Secondly, be careful about eating lettuce, salads, and foods of this nature. You are a little safer in first class hotels in the modern cities but otherwise the fresh fruits and vegetables should be treated with care. Many people's problems with diarrhea in Mexico are related to change in the type of food they are eating. This will upset the stomach, so take it easy on the spicy foods and how much you eat and the alcohol You may be interested to know that many Mexican people have a similar problem when they ccme to the United States and eat our food. On the subject of water, don't brush your teeth with tap water. If you absolutely must, use the hot water tap, Remember the tap water in many places is not suitable for drinking and this also means brushing teeth. As one wag put it, if you brush your teeth with tap water, you'll spend more time in the bathroom. I think you've been wise to follow your program of treatment rather than prevention Take along some Kaolin-Pectin mixture in tablets or liquid form or some paregoric, or your family doctor may wish to prescribe some Lomotil which you can take if diarrhea should strike. Most diarrhea will be self-limiting, but if there is blood mucus, or if it persists more than two to three days,. you should seek medical assistance, Send your questions to Dr. Lamb in care of this news-per, 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 to the same address and ask for "Balanced Diet" booklet. tached, with an interest in exotic or esoteric subjects.

While !t Is tempting to double, such strategy is not recommended, for someone is sure to rescue. If West should now run to hearts and -partner doubles that bid, you will not know what action to take. Q. 2-Both vulnerable. You have 30 part score and as South you hold: A976543 (794 OAQ +76 The bidding has proceeded: South West North East 1 * Dble. Rdbl. 2 O 2 4 Pass 3 ? What do you bid now? A.-There Is no doubt that you ire going to go to game, but there Is no necessity for haste. A bid of two hearts will serve the purpose, for a new suit by re-sponder Is forcing for one round.

It is poor tactics to anticipate that the double of the cjie spade will be left in, and, a bid of two hearts is not recommended as offering safety.
