Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 24, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta if, July V., 1971 _ THI LETHIJIIDGE HERALD YOUR HOROSCOP By JEANE DIXON TUESDAY, JULY 25 Your Birthday Today: Brings your greater talents, smoother surfaces out for the world to see; stronger forces arise within you per- haps in temporary conflict. It's a memorable year. To- day's natives often under- stand complex matters which puzzle most people, can make the commonplace seem ex- citing.

''Nerves' diagnosis difficult to make By Lawrence Lamb, M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb Your arti- cles on health are the subject of many discussions when friends meet. I wish you would discuss how doctors can help us who have "just nerves" or rather how we might help our- selves, f read that making a diagnosis of "just nerves" is the toughest diagnosis to make. It is also a difficult one for the patient to accept. The pain is real regardless of what's causing it. I had this problem and it caused me to be more nervous just trying to describe my pain. Finally, I was diag- nosed as a mild diabetic with diabetic neuritis. I have been getting B.-12 shots every six months and I'm much improv- ed. 1 also take tranquilizers. My weight was ideal even the envy of fat friends, Dear Reader You're right. A diagnosis of "nerves" is a difficult one to make. It means that the doctor has to be satis- fied that there is no other mech- anism causing the pain or symptom. Since so many things cause pain this automatically means excluding an awful lot of disorders. And, you're right it hurts just as bad regard- less of the cause. If a patient has pain in the leg, he needs help for this pain whether it's caused by nervousness or poor circulation. The role of a doctor is to help his patient. At times he can't unless he levels with him and makes sure he understands he doesn't have any serious dis- ease and that his problem is really related to nervousness or emotional factors. Ideally, the doctor then delves into the life situation factors that are res- ponsible for the nerves and the symptoms. Unfortunately, many dictors seeing lots of pa- tient don't have time to do this In great detail for one patient. Neither the doctor nor the pa- tient can aflord for him to do this.

(CP) A Toronto doctor who heads an addiction treatment clinic told Queens University students here that transcendental medi- tation may help cure addiction. Dr. Gordon Bell, president of the Donwood Institute, said he was impressed by a study show- ing that people who prac- tised transcendental meditation have almost stopped the use and abuse of non-prescribed drugs, including alcobol and cig- arettes. Dr. Bell was addressing a symposium on the science of the creative intelligence which started at the beginning of July and has been attended by about students. He said transcendental medi talion may prove a significant tool in dealing with "our myriad misadventures with the world of chemicals." It is recommended, he said, by its ease of learning and the tact thai it does not require any specific belief or strenuous self- discipline. Dr. Bell's institute was noted by the LeDain Commission for having considerable success in treating alcohob'cs and drug ad- dicls. Although the meditation technique is not employed at Donwood, patients are taught to use controlled relaxation in their rest periods rather than be dosed with sedatives. "This was part of the pro- gram of shifting from a depend- ence on chemicals to unused re- sources within said Dr. Bell. He suggested that a combina- tion of clinical resources, indi- vidual and group therapy and transcendental meditation offers a real hope that addiction may be cured and prevented. Dr. Bell was the tirst scientist to speak at the symposium. Other speakers include genetic scientist Dr. David Suzuki and communications expert Mar- shall McLuhan. Tories trail LONDON (Router) Brit- ain's Opposition Labor party has lengthened its lead over the governing Conservatives to 10 per cent from six in the last month, n public opinion poll showed yesterday. The survey, conducted by the Gallup Poll for the London Daily Tele- graph, also showed a drop in Lhe personal popularity of Prime Minister Heath. Only 31 per cent approve of Heath's performance now, compared with 36 per cent in June and May. EARLY TEXTILES Indians of Peru produced elaborate textiles as curly as 400 BC. atoms. This dramatic reducing process is radioactivity. Urani- um is one of the heavy unstable atoms. However, certain small- j er atoms also are radioactive because the forces that hold them together are unbalanced. The secret of radioactivity is in the nucleus, tbat tight little fist of assorted particles amid the atom's swarming electrons. Its major particles are the pro- tons and neutrons that give the atom its weight or mass. The positively charged proton equals t h emass of 1836 nega- tive electrons. The neutral I neutron slightly outweighs the proton and these two particles make up 99.9 per cent of an atom's total mass. It seems that the radioactivity of substances is determined by neutrons. The nucleus of the ordinary uranium atom has 92 protons and 146 neturons giving it a total mass number of 238. Ap- parently the nucleus cannot bind ar.d hold such a large num- ber of particles together. A few atoms in a uranium ore sample have 143 and a very few have 142 neutrons. All of these uranium Isotopes are unstable. Step by precise step, the sam- ple breaks down through a ser- ies of smaller atoms, emitting nuclear fragments and energy in the form of nuclear radia- tions. The smaller atoms also are unstable until the final stage. After 4K billion years, half the atoms in our uranium sam- ple become a form of lead. This atom, with 82 protons and 124 neutrons, Is stable and no longer Involved in the radioac- tive process. During the next half-life of 4% billion years, 50 per cent of the remaining uran- ium is reduced to this stable lead. And 50 per cent of the remainder is reduced during the next half-life. Obviously the many particles in the massive uranium nucleus have some- Ihing to do with its radioac- tivity, though this is not the whole story. Some radioactive substances lave only three or so neturons. I However, they are small atoms I with only one or two protons. For example, the smallest atom is hydrogen. Its atomic number is one, for the one proton in its nucleus. An ordinary hydrogen atom lies no neturons. But leavy hydrogen weighs twice as much because this isotope las one neturon. Apparently the forces that bind the one-proton- nucleus together can cope with heavy hydrogen, alias deuteri- um, is sLable. Tritium is a hy- drogen isotope with two neut- rons and it is radioactive. "n an atomic explosion, these two Isotopes of the smallest atom release the fury of the H bomb. Uranium and all the heavy elements known have large numbers o( neutrons and all of .hem are radioactive. However, there are many smaller radio- active atoms In nature. Some are formed as uranium decays hrough its series of smaller, inslablc atoms. Others are iso- opes of common elemenLs. It seems that even the smallest atoms become unstable when extra neutrons upset tho forces hat bind Its nucleus together. Questions asuefl tj? of Herald readers should be mallei! to Ask Andy. P.O.
