Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16-THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD July 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb Would you please expound on the miracle vitamin laetnle7 A vitamin salesperson told us this is a cure for or is being used in 22 different countries The United States won't allow because doctors would lose millions of dollars a year if they allowed a cure for cancer My husband and I argued strongly for the AMA saying there is apparently something not perfect with the vitamin as yet and until it is the AMA will not endorse it would you please explain as much as you can Dear Reader People like that 'vitamin are a menace to public health They are really dangerous Most of the information they provide is wrong and used to make money for themselves The big danger is that someone will take one of their quack cures instead of going to a good doctor and getting useful treatment while there is still time It is not the AMA that is keeping laetnle out of the United States It is your federal government through its Food and Drug Administration The FDA is not part ot the AMA at all It is a government agency to protect tne public's health from such charlatans as the vitamin salesperson Thev protect the public from false claims and harmful products that would otherwise be marketed Laetnle is not harmful It may not be useful either It has been popularized as one of those 'over the treatments for cancer Even the Mexican does not claim that it helps except in about five per cent of his cases The rest get standard treatments for cancer that you could get in the United States in good medical centres Cancer does not provide much money for the practicing physician He makes most of his income from aches and pains often caused by tension and life patterns Only a few doctors in private practice are regularly engaged in taking care of cancer patients Most of the cancer centres are staffed by doctors on a flat salary They do not make a bit more for the number of patients they see The research studies in cancer in most centres are sponsored by funds from the federal and the scientists are paid from these funds The is rather small compared to their training and background Laetnle is an extract of the apricot seed A review of cases claimed to be helped by to prove in a single case that the laetnle was of any benefit in those few cases that appeared to benefit from cancer therapy The danger in of the clinics for this is that someone may refuse needed surgery that could be life saving Laetnle is still being studied by the government and by cancer centres It is getting enough study that if there is even any tmv benefit from it that will be known I think most people do not realize how much can be done for cancer today Many cases can and cured The likelihood that you can be cured is improved enormously if you go to a reputable doctor and he detects the cancer early Early detection and proper treatment can be sabotaged by vitamin _ peddling false cures for cancer In this way they kill people for a fast buck They are a menace to society as are all the cure peddlers working outside the laws of your government Send your questions to Dr. in care of this P.O.

South needed no more than a sign of life from his partner to decide that there has to be reasonable play for four spades Rather than reveal anything about his he leaped straight to game At both tables of the West found the inspired lead of the five of and at each table East made the expert play of the won by declarer's queen. At one declarer entered dummy with the king of clubs and successfully finessed the jack of spaaes When the king did not fall under the he eventually had to surrender a trump tnck and two diamonds for down one The successful declarer did not immediately commit him self to a spade finesse After winning the queen of he returned the covered by the king and ace East shifted to the ten of and the defenders took two tncks m that suit to complete their Book West then exited with a diamond Declarer and it seemed he was bound to meet the same fate as his opponent declarer was aware that four missing cards are more likely to divide 3-1 than 2 2 it was unlikely that one spade finesse would be needed to finesse twice For how- he would need two entries to dummy there was only one To create a second entry to declarer led a club when West played he boldly finessed the ten. This was a brave for declarer knew he was taking an unusual line that might cost him the it was only just that it should succeed It was now a simple matter to lead a trump to the reenter dummy with the king of clubs and repeat the trump thereby making the contract ANTS Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Ellen age of Staten New for her question Do ants hibernate9 During the cnilly winter there are few if any ants around But how they teem in to pester our summer picnics What's if you could tag them you might meet the same little ant year after year The life span of the worker ant is seven so obviously the little pests must have ways to survive through the winters A hibernating creature sinks into a sort of which is deeper than the deepest sleep As tne weather his temperature drops and all his body processes slow down His heart beat pulses perhaps once in several minutes and his breathing is even slower He is dead to the world If you poke he pays no attention This is hibernation in the true sense Though the ants adjust their life style to cope with the winter they are not true hibernators Certain other insects do either in the egg stage or in the pupa securely sheathed in cozy cocoons or weatherproof chrysalises But not the ants of are insects and all the insects are cold- blooded creatures This is to they have no built in thermostats to adjust their body temperatures to warm or cool surroundings Their tiny bodies are made of living cells and all living cells need a certain amount of warmth to carry on their miraculous chemical activities With a sudden drop in the busy ants become slow and logy long before this the ants have taken precautions There are at least ant species as usual each species favors its own life style They teem in the tropics and inhabit all temperate zones to the brink of the polar regions All ants are social insects that live in colonies Most species tunnel family nests in the with elaborate large and small In the average the eggs are produced by a queen mother or perhaps by several queen ants There may be an army of tough lady soldiers and in summer there are some male drones All the family chores are done by the busy worker ants The queens and the workers are busiest during the summer and usually downright hectic in the fall Numerous ant species teem in the where the climate is warm enough for them to keep going all year But ants of the temperate zones must make winter plans for dining and dodging the cold Some species are meat some are vegetarians and others favor a mixed menu In any suitable food is stored to last the family through the winter During the the nests of many species include raised ant hills As winter the workers tunnel perhaps five to 15 feet below the surface The entire colony plus all family operations are moved down to this winter cellar below the frost Activity is reduced and the family survives on stored rations QuMtiont by chil- dren of Herald readers be mailed to Aek P.O.
