Dear Header Thank you for your letter and it certainly serves as a good illustration of the problem. Whenever the small disc between the verte- brae protrudes in such a ivay as to cause mechanical pres- sure on any of the nerves, it needs correction. If pressure is applied too long on the spinal cord or nerves, it can cause permanent damage. Of course, every case is dif- ferent and there is no way the patient by himself can tell whether he is really damaging the nerve or not. But bis doc- tor can tell. Thus it is very important that if the doctor advises that the time has come ior disc surgery, you should go along with his recommenda- tion without undue delay. Your case also points up the importance of going to see your doctor early when symptoms of numbness in the leg or prob- lems we commonly associate is referring to the observation that people can lose hair from being nervous. You can ap- preciate the fact lhat this is a vicious cycle that once one begins to lose hair from ner- vousness he usually gets ner- vous because he's losing the hair. And so if goes. If the per- son can be reassured and the basic cause tor tension resolved, the hair gradually grows back and the problem disappears. This should not be confused with all the many other rea- sons for loss of hair. Hair loss can be a normal event in men. It can also be a normal event in women after childbirth and with increasing age. Of course, women often lose hair from some of their habits which in- clude inappropriate use of hair cosmetics, pulling and binding the hair, teasing the hail' and any other type of hair style that maintains tension or pull- ing on the hair itsell. There is something to be said for today's natural girl with her loose natural hair. Snalteless areas Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Deb- orah Snider, age 10, of stoii-Salcm, North Carolina, for her question.- U'liy arc llierc no snakes In Hawaii? A century or so ago. there were no snakes in Hawaii. Then at least one snaky character arrived and made himself at home there. Of course, this im- is not a native of long standing and we can say that he does not rightfully belong in the natural ecology of the is- lands. There are no native snakes in Ireland either. New Zealand is snakcless, so is Alas- ka, and several other parts of the world. Snakes are fond of mild cli- mates where the softish ground remains unfrozen through a long season of spring and sum- mer. You would think that the Hawaiian Islands would suit them just fine. So Lhey if the snakes could find a way to get there. But they are not global travelers by nature. True, they manage to slither short distances, traveling very gracefully, considering that they have no legs. But crossing con- tinents is loo much for Ihem. And land snakes cannot cross oceans or even smallish stretches of water. Scientists tell us that their ancestors were lizards that scut- tled along on squat stubby legs. Perhaps 100 million years ago. these snaky ancestors changed their life style. They wiggled around and gradually gave up walking altogether. Mother Na- lure never lets her animals keep useless items. So gradually the lizards lost their unused legs and became snakes. It seems that this patient re- modeling job happened on the continents and large land masses And this is where al- most all of the non-traveling snakes had to stay. Mone o[ them readied Hawaii until re- cent limes. It seems lhat a cer- tain immigrant called the In- dian Blind Snake managed to get past the customs officials. Some suspect he was concealed in some cargo unloaded Ircm a ship. Obviously his wife and perhaps other relatives came along too. Because this snake species multiplied and made himself at home in Hawaii. During the past 100 million years, Ihe earth has shifted the shape of the global map. The continents drifted farther apart. Seas and glaciers cut off seclicns from some of the land masses. There are plenty of na- tive snakes in Australia, but none managed to cross the sea to nearby New Zealand. Until recently, no snakes managed to cross the ocean to Hawaii and other Pscific Islands. One brave viper dares to live in northern Scandinavia, just inside the Arctic Circle. But the rest cannot abide these cold tur.dra regicr.3, where ground below the surface is always fro- zen. Tins may explain why there are no native snakes in Alaska and other far northern parts of Europe and Asia. Perhaps there were once snakes in Ireland, but Ihe ice age glaciers must have crushed and frozen them. About 32 spe- cies survived farther south in Europe. When the ice melted, the flood water cut off Ireland and then England from t h c mainland. Three of the southern snakes had time to crawl lo England. But not one species managed to crawl back to Ire- land. (Jueslluns asriefl ny cnrtdion of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box Hunlinglon Beaca, California 92648.
