Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 26, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 - THE IETHBRIDOI HERALD - Tuesday, January 26, 1971 Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon WEDNESDAY, JAN. 27 Your Birthday Today: This year brings a season for projecting your personality and your knack of organizing. Intuitive powers gain along with the self - improvement campaign you must wage to stay on the turbulent front-lines of successful living. ARIES (March 2t - April 19): Press right on with your work and personal ventures despite comments of friends. Where the outcome of an issue is in doubt, ask for a quick decision. TAURUS (April 29 - May 20): Career advancement is amenable to direct effort. Make it a full day of dUigent work, then turn directly to push through some reorganization of your home. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20>: If you can bring a delicate situation into balance or settle any legal question, do so. A real- life riddle is waiting to be solved - but it's probably quite insoluble.

LEO (July 23  Aug. 22): Your logic almost must carry the whole burden since emotions are not realistic. Leave nothing at loose ends,, The evening is for meditation. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Careful of salt intake; excess causes problems Antibody to cancer discovered JERUSALEM (AP) - An Israeli scientist reported here discovery of an antibody to cancer that she said would make the disease detectable in its earliest stages. "I think it will enable us to detect cancer much, much earlier than anything now possible," Dr. Chloe Tal said in an interview. She said the human body develops an antibody-like protein that fights the tumor cell. If this protein is detected in the blood, it is a signal that the patient has a malignant growth, she added. Dr. Tal, a biochemist in the cancer research department of Jerusalem's Hadassah Medical School, said she confirmed her discovery in a test of 500 patients', some of whom had cancer. The antibody was found in every patient suffering from cancer and in none of those suffering from any other disease, she said. She now plans to test sectors of the population. OTHERS CAUTIOUS Cancer specialists in the United States expressed interest in Dr. Tal's research but said more study was needed to determine exactly how useful it could be in detecting cancer early without missing the disease in some people or indicating cancer when a person did not have it. Numerous cancer detection tests that showed early promise were abandoned later. Dr. Tal, SO, admitted the system sounded almost too simple to be true. "As I was writing my paper on this, a professor read it and said, "But it's so simple. How come nobody noticed it before?" "I reptied that perhaps precisely because it's so simple, nobody has discovered it." She said the antibody is produced when cytolipin H, one of the prime components of a cancerous cell, appears in the body. "It was pure logic that led me to this," she said. "I always wondered why there was no known antibody to cancer, while there was a natural weapon for other diseases. "It was a matter of searching for this weapon, for I believed it existed. I wasn't surprised to find it." Dear Dr. Lamb - I do not use much salt, only while cooking vegetables. The rest of my family adds more at the table. Would it be possible for you to comment in your column on the effects of salt? Dear Reader - With salt, like other things, there is an optimal amount. Only under unusual circumstances is it necessary to add salt to the diet to prevent medical problems. The water in the body contains about the same amount of salt as sea water and it is essential to maintain about that much salt in the body. The food we eat contains a lot of sodium, which is the important element of salt. In fact, it is very hard to construct a good diet which is low in sodium or salt. Meat, milk and vegetables all contain some sodium and even city water often contains more sodium than is allowable if a person really needs to restrict sodium. The normal kidney is able to conserve sodium if the body needs it and filters out water with little salt in it. The most common reason for needing salt added to the diet is excessive sweating, for ex ample, from heavy manual labor or exercise in the heat. Sometimes salt pills are ad vis able in these circumstances Other than this, the big problem with salt is that people may use too much. In some people, excess salt contributes to high blood pres sure. For awhile some invests gators thought there was something magic to rice and rice diets became very popular in treating high blood pressure. It was soon learned that the magic in rice was the absence of sodium. A salt-restricted diet is still a good treatment for high blood pressure, particularly if there is associated accumulation, of fluid. In fact, some of the medicines we give people for high blood pressure act in part by causing the kidney to eliminate excess sodium. Some authorities have sag gested that the excess use of salt, so characteristic of Ameri cans, is related to developing fatty deposits in the arteries but this is only theoretical at the moment. Regiiian heads western fairs SASKATOON (CP) - E. J. Courtney of Regina, a past president of the Regina Exhibition, has been elected president of the Western Canada Association of Exhibitions. Mr. Courtney was unopposed for the position and Stan Haughey, president of Winnl peg Manisphere Exhibition, was elected vice-president at the close of the organization's three-day meeting. GOREN ON BRIDGE Of course, people with heart failure causing accumulation of fluid, liver disease or kidney disease must be particularly careful not to eat much salt While medicine can help prevent the accumulation of salt and water, the role of salt restriction is still important. Most healthy people can use a moderate amount of salt and have no ill effects from it. You are not missing anything you need for health by not adding a lot of salt to your food and hopefully the rest of your family is not doing too much harm to themselves, but your practice is more healthy pi \ni is Don't wait for developments. Give things time to come to pass, then go on with an alternative plan. Old problems are beyond resolution at the moment. LIBRA (Sept. 23  Oct. 22): Set a lively but steady pace. Fresh pastimes, hobbies could turn into something profitable. Gather friends of similar interest and see what can be done. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): It's defin i t e 1 y worthwhile to keep your attention off personal affairs of others. Later, they'll tell you all about it-wait! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Find something different to do today. Group actions in general do better than singlehand-ed efforts. Take home a nice surprise. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 . Jan. 19): There's a flaw in a story you hear, but you can spot it. Make do with what you have now. Pace yourself to avoid fatigue. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 � Feb. 18): Put everything together in a different order. Clear out any excess or surplus belongings. The evenings is for small parties, shows and concerts. PISCES (Feb. 19 - March 20): In the midst of pressing forward with career matters your attention is distracted by cir cumstances in the lives of relatives. Don't meddle. 1971 By Chicago Tribune AH! A LETTER FROM IiMODSTOCK, HE'S AW AT WORM SOWOL.. Basic research will beat cancer TORONTO (CP) - Only basic research will beat cancer, Dr. T. O. McPherson of Edmonton told 360 Canadian Cancer Society campaigners from across Canada at a conference here. Dr. McPherson, an immunolo-gist, questioned the value of seeking cancer-fighting substances. As an example of basic research he cited a diagnostic test for cancer of the lower bowel developed in Montreal and now being evaluated by several researchers in the United States and Canada, including his team at the University of Alberta hospital. This basic research had clinical applications because this type of cancer can be successfully treated if diagnosed early. Fifteen per cent of cancer cases in Canada involve the lower bowel, he said. He contrasted the potential of such basic research methods with that of the search for cancer-fighting substances. More than 88,000 substances have been tested since 1967 for anticancer activity, but only 24 are useful in treatment, he said. It is unlikely this kind of research will produce key answers, and "we might ask does the return from this ... research approximate the invest ment?" The 360 volunteer campaign chairmen were in Toronto to plan this year's $3.35-million campaign. Last year's objective of $3.2 million was exceeded by $69,106. CONTINENTS APART SASKATOON (CP) - Brothers born 24 years apart and on different continents, but sharing a common birth date, celebrated together at a family dinner. The dinner was held at the Saskatoon borne of Mike Scherbanuik, who was born in the Ukraine. In addition to having the same birthdate, Mike, 51, and Matt, 75, have the same godfather.
