There's no changing his' lory.1 By The Chicago Tribune) Dear Dr. Lamb I have pockets in my intestines anc cannot eat food that has skins or seeds, I have been told that there is a medicine you can take that will dissolve these pockets. Is that true? Desr Reader These occur where the muscular waii of the intestinal tube has given away or ruptured and allowed a por. tion of the lining (mucosa) of the intestines to protrude out in a little pocket or diverticula. The intestinal tube has several layers in its, wall. The Inner layer is the mucosa, or lining, that produces all types of se- cretions to aid in digestion and is the location for absorption of foodstuffs into the. blood- stream. There are muscular layers in the intestinal wall that are circular and some are length- wise. Finally, the whole wall is bounded by tough, membrane- ous material. The little pockets most often occur in people who have had an overactive diges- tive system. Often these are the people who have experienced constipation, diarrhea and other evidences of spasm and the build up of pressure within the intestine. Diverttcalosls of the large in- testine, or colon, is common, occurring in one out of five of the American population older than 40. Most people don't even know they have these and they are observed by x-ray examin- ation or autopsy examination. Only about one out of five of the individuals with these have uiy symptoms, and only about one out of 100 who have these develop an inflammation of one of the little pockets which call diverticulitis. When this does occur, the ii flamed pocket behaves verj much like the inflamed pocke we call the appendix. The loca tlon for the pain and symptom, however, may be differ en since the pocket extending from the colon may vary in its loca tion. The treatment for diverticu osis is essentially the same a for constipation or irritable co on. This includes good, regular bowel habits promoted by form ing a regular habit, usually i the morning, and aided b. drinking two or three cups o warm water or liquid eac morning. Chemical laxatives o any medicine that stimulates the bowel to forceful contrac lions is bad. Some individuals' will fire certain foods aggravate UK condition. Usually a diet tha contains a lot of fruit and vege- tables is prescribed to provide additional bulk for the stoo and help to develop good bowe i a b i t s. However, there are some foods in this category -hat individual patients will not tolerate. Individuals with this woblem should avoid the rich starchy foods. This includes cake, pastries and rich des- serth. Sweet drinks, such as sweetened coffee and alcohol should be avoided. During epi- sodes of pain, a heating pad over the abdomen will some, times provide some relief. There are no medicines that dissolve the pockets. The medi- cines that decrease spasm ol he digestive tract are some- times useful. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.

Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Billy Gale, age JO, of Omaha, Nebraska, for his question: Why do we need vitamins? A car needs wheels to gel from here to there; a clock needs hands to point to the pass ing moments. Your body per forms a multitude of miracles with chemicals and it needs vitamins to make them work U this or that vitamin is miss ing, the body cannot do curtain jobs to keep itself healthy. The skin may get scuffy or the mus cles may grow weak and weary bones may become fragile or wounds may refuse to beat When vitamins are missing for a long time, the body breaks down altogether. We know that we must breathe and also eat regular meals to keep going. But the real miracles go on inside. The body uses oxygen to change the food we eat into various usable chemicals. It uses more oxygen Out. may put new drivers on probation LONDON, Ont. (CP) On- tario is giving "serious consiii. oration" to 12-month probation- ary licences for all new drivers, Charles MacNaughton, provin- :ial minister of transportation and communications, said here. Probationary licences, for an interim period between passing a driver examination test and being granted a permanent lic- ence, would apply to all age groups, Mr. MacNaughton told i news conference during a hree-day series of traffic safety vorkshops sponsored by his de- lartment. "If the driver has a clean ecord after his first year he could then apply for a perma- nent he said. "If he has had convictions or ost (demerit) points, then we wo-uld have to review his eligi- bility for a permanent licence and perhaps extend his proba- ionary period or take other ap- iropriatc actions." 3olio epidemic n Trinidad PORT OF SPAIN (AP) 'rinidad's annual cami- al, scheduled for Feb. 14 and 5, has been postponed for bout three months because of polio epidemic, Health Min- uter Francis Prevail announc- ed. He also said primary schools, which have nol opened since Christmas vacation, will remain loscd this week. Ten persons, nine of t h e rn hildren, have died and 163 ave been taken to hospital in he epidemic. Prevatt said in his televised nnouncement Saturday night Jiat the carnival was postponed n the advice of public health fficers. to build and repair itself and change food into peppy energy These chemical miracles go on behind the scenes. But they can- not go on without help from var- ious chemicals called vitamins The body must be given healthy helpings of ready-made vitamins to keep going. Tha plant world offers most of them in fresh fruits and vegetables, in yeasts and whole grain cer- eals. Other vitamins are to us in lean meats, fish and dairy foods. Actually, the body needs more than 20 differenl vitamins to do hundreds of dif- ferent jobs. Biochemists know a lot about some of them and a little about others. The problem is hard be- cause vitamins work in very complex ways. Each one does several different Jobs and some of Iheir duties overlap. For ex- ample, vitamin A is needed to keep the skin and nerves healthy, to build strong bones and teeth, to help breathing and digestion. This same busy vitamin also helps the eyes to see their bosl when the light is dim. Naturally, you want to g e t your share of vitemin A. You can get it from milk and eggs, from fish and liver, green and yellow vegetables and by eating carrots. Add lean meat, whole grain cereals and dairy prod, nets and you also get daily help- ings of the various B vitamins. Your body needs Bi to change food Mo energy, to keep its heart bearing and to soothe its nerves. It needs B2 to keep its skin healthy and to heal its wounds. Healthy teeth, gums and nerves elso nend B6 and so do red blood cells. The blood skin and nerves also need daily doses of other B vitamins to stay healthy. The A and B vitamins can- not do a good job without the magic of vitamin C. The body needs healthy helpings of C for the teeth, bones and skin ami all the other busy cells need il every day. The plant world serves vitamin C in citrus juice and other fruits, also in salads and fresh vegetables. Some day the experts will learn a lot more about the var- ious vitamins, how they work and why the body cannot get along without them. We also need lo know what our daily doses should be and the best way to take them. The C and B vitamins are very frag i 1 e. Fruit and vegetables soon lose them and more float away in the cooking of vegetables. Some experts think we should take extra vitamins in capsules, just to make sure that we get our share.

California (Copyright Chronicle Publishing Co. 1972) Medical records test conducted BOSTON (AP) Massa- chusetts Genera] Hospital is experimenting with adding color pictures to medical records to overcome several iroblems of written communi- cation, including sloppy hand- writing by doctors. Under the direction of Dr. Kenneth T. Bird at the hospi- al's Logan Airport Medical Station, the staff is snapping )icturcs of everything from n f e c k c d toes to wounded icads and placing these pho- tos into the records. "The records system of America today is largely word-oriented, and imfortiin- ntely it's in the worst mode- Dr. Bird says. "The handwriting of thf physician is notoriously poor." The visual experiment is starting small. It uses inex- pensive cameras and high- speed color film which docs not need a flash. A clinician can find in (lie records a color photo of a swollen arm which makes its present size and color more meaningfulin juding the treatment. Dr. Bird sees photography as only the first step in the medical record of the future, which could eventually in- clude sound r cc o r d i n g, sketches nnd special typewrit- ers. "I'm certain the medical record of llw future will be n type of video Dr. Bird says. NEVER SHARE HTJUR PAP WITH A RESTLESS BlRP! TUMBLEWEEDS-ay Tom K.
