Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta J I 1} TS THI LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, July 13, 1973 LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Thick blood tales nixed Dear Dr. Lamb I hope you'll answer my question and end a debate. Now I'd like to know if, in the summer, the bliod gets thinner and, in the winter months, it gets thicker. I've always believed that the above was true. Dear Reader The thickness of the blood fluctuates for many reasons. Normally about 45 to 50 per cent of the blood is blood cells, and the rest is fluid, or plasma. If you get dehy- drated, for example, on expos- ure to heat with loss of salt and water, the ratio of blood cells to liquid plasma changes be- cause you lose water from the bloodstream, just as you do from the rest of the body. Even bed rest affects the blood. A person who remains at bed rest without being upright at all over a period of 48 hours will lose about a pint of fluid from his total blood volume, causing the blood to thicken. Thus, at- tributing changes of thickness or thinness of the blood to sea- sons isn't very reliable. Many individuals used to take a "blood tonic'' to thin the blood come springtime. A popular one of these was sassafrass tea, which had absolutely no effect on thinning the blood For normal healthy Thinning of the blood is also confused with the use of agents to keep the blood from clotting. These agents do not thin the blood in the sense that they create iriXS plasma or fluid in relationship to the number of cells in the blood. What they really do is affect the clotting mechanisms so that the blood clots more slowly. Dear Dr. Lamb My hus- band heard that if anyone drank over five cups of cof- fee a day he would have hard- ening of the arteries. Is this true? Dear Reader There was a report in Lancet, a British med- ical journal, about the increas- ed likelihood of having heart attacks in individuals who drank over five cups of coffee a day. Incidentally, this is not the first time that this sugges- tion has been made. It was made a number of years ago by a Dr. Paul in Chicago. Your horoscope By JEANE DIXON Most heart specialists agree th'x even small amounts of coii'ee, and particularly if one is drinking five cups a day or more, will cause some people to have skipped beats or irregu- larities of the heart.

Formerly a successful doctor, philosopher and scientist, Marat distrusted all authority and so allied him- self to no party when the revol- ution came. He helped bring about tbe fall of the oligarchi- cal Girondins and is credited with foreseeing the massacres of 1Y92, when no mechanism was set up to try tbe aristo- crats on specific charges. 1961 James Coyne resign- ed as governor of the Bank of Canada after the Senate voted! 33 to 16 to kill a government bill dismissing him. 1953 The first Shakespear- ean festival opened at Strat- ARCHIE?
