Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 7, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, January 7, 1975 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb My mother used to have a recipe for sour cream she got from you. She said it was wonder- ful, but she has lost it. Could you send it to me? I use a lot of sour cream. Dear Reader She must mean the sour cream sub- stitute recipe from my book "What You Need to Know About Food and Cooking for Health (Viking You can find it and many other recipes to prepare low fat, low cholesterol foods in that book and hopefully your local library will have one or more copies of it. Many people like yourself do like sour cream, whipped cream and other foods that are normally high in fat. By using low fat dairy products and special recipes you can still have these things and not risk increasing your blood cholesterol or increas- ing the chances of having heart and vascular disease. The sour cream substitute receipe is typical of what you can do in the kitchen for your family. Just mix together cup of nonfat milk powder and Vi cup of cold water. Blend this with 8 ounces of uncream- ed cottage cheese, two teaspoons of lemon juice and teaspoon of salt. Keep it refrigerated until used. This recipe will give you lots of protein and calcuim, both good for most people. Dear Dr. Lamb I've heard that a sudden enlarge- ment of a mole can be a sign of cancer. Is this true? I'm 33 and have begun to notice several tiny moles that have appeared over parts of my body, and I'm sure they weren't there before. Is this anything to worry about? It has been suggested by doctors that two rather large moles, which I've had most of my life, be removed. Other doctors have said they shouldn't be touched. What is correct? Are there any serious conse- quences if a mole is nicked by shaving? Anything you can tell me about moles would be appreciated. Dear Reader A mole is really a new growth of skin, and it is usually a congenital growth. When they are brown it is because they contain lots of the cells producing the melanin pigment that causes sun tanning and freckles. Most moles are harmless, but they can be dangerous. Some become malignant melan- omas, a particularly nasty type of cancer. If a mole starts enlarging or showing any changes at all it should be surgically removed. Also, if it is in a location where it is being irritated by a belt or shaving or any other factor it should be removed. When it conies to moles I am a great believer in the old sur- gical dictum, "When in doubt, cut it out." I have never known anyone to have any problems from the surgical removal of a mole. I have seen people who have neglected new growth of moles and developed in- curable cancer. After reading similar remarks in one of my columns some time ago a woman went to her doctor who removed a mole that proved to be a maglignant melanoma. Her rapid response to the informa- tion and the prompt action of her doctors gave her a chance to survive. A good prevention program is to remove any moles that are in any way a possible site for future trouble.

GOREN AND OMAR SHARIF North-South vulnerable. North deals.

The Horse has the reputa- tion of being the world's fastest player. Some of his detractors maintain that his family crest consists of fly- ing fingers on a green baize background, with the motto: "Play in haste, repent at Recently he spent a brief period. in England and departed from those shores leaving several of his part- ners financially worse off for his visit. In deference to his hosts, The Horse agreed to play the weak no trump, 12-14 points. Since North was too strong to open one no trump, he started things off by bidding one heart, then raised The Horse's no trump response to two (a stretch by any stan- The Horse felt that his six-card suit and inter- mediates justified an attempt at game. East won the opening spade lead with the ace and returned the queen, and The Horse made the technically correct play of allowing East to win the second trick as well. Out of spades. East shifted to a low heart, and West's -jack was taken by dummy's king. In rapid suc- cession, declarer cashed the ace and king of clubs and, when West showed out, con- tinued with a low club to East's queen. This time, East shifted to a low-dia- mond. Suddenly, his predicament began to dawn on The Horse. He had only eight tricks and the ninth, the ace of hearts, languished in dummy with no entry. It was only fitting that he should end up one down. While The Horse could not afford to release his remain- ing heart stopper before con- Ceding a club (that would enable the opponents to de- feat him by cashing heart he nevertheless overlooked a line that would have kept his communica- tions intact. After winning the king of hearts, declarer must cash just one high club, then continue with the low club from dummy. East can win, but the contract is safe. The, high club serves as an entry to dummy's winning heart, and either the king of spades or ace of diamonds is declarer's entry to his own hand to cash the good clubs.

Ask Andy THE HEART Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Richard Kansel Jr., age 13, of Wichita, Kan., for his question: What makes the heart beat? A healthy human heart beats lub dub, lub dub, all day and all night. It has its own built in pacemaker to start each pulsing beat. And the pacemaker has a partner to complete the cycle. These built in drummers are bundles of special nerves. Arid the whole thing works like a built in miracle. The heart is a muscular fist that contracts and relaxes with each pulsing beat. Its hollow inside has a central wall which divides it into two separate chambers. Each of these chambers has an up- stairs and a downstairs chamber with a sort of trap- door in the downstairs ceiling. The downstairs chambers are the ventricles. Those up- stairs are the atria, the plural of atrium. The right atrium has a system of valves and vessels to let in used blood from the veins and pump it up to be refreshed by the lungs. The left atrium has a similar system to let in fresh blood from the lungs and pump it out through the arteries. Obviously this neat opera- tion needs a complex pumping system. To make it work, various muscles must relax to let the blood flow into the heart and contract to push it out. Each complex beat is triggered by the sio-auricular node, alias the S-N node, alias the pacemaker. The pacemaker is a tiny, C- shape button. To start the beat, it sends a spurt of electrical impulses that cause the atria to contract and send their blood supplies through the trapdoor down into the relaxed ventricles. The spreading pacemaker im- pulses are captured and relayed by a nerve bundle called the atrioventricular node, alias the A-N node. The A-N node has nerve branches to carry the signals through the thick muscular walls of the two ventricles. They contract from the bot- tom, pumping blood up through the trapdoors and out through the atria. After each beat, the heart takes a brief moment to rest before the pacemaker triggers the next round of activity. The rate of the average heartbeat is about 70 times a minute. But the average is slower during rest periods and faster when the busy body needs more oxygen. These variations are signaled to the pacemaker by nerve networks in the spine and other parts of the body. Queitloni astod by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
