Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THI IETHBRIDGE HERAID Thunday, July 30, 1970 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON FRIDAY, .JULY 31 Your birthday today: This year is mostly a matter of a scramble to get ahead, or to get started. The urgency that besets you has no ready outlet in commercial ventures, so is partially channeled into philo- sophic and other noncommer- cial activity. So much of the action, is new that you have to devise ways of achieving your goals. Today's natives seldom fully understand their inner They talk themselves into and out of most of their troubles. ARIES (March 21 April Romantic interests advan c e today with little hindrance. Finish the workweek at the usual quiting time. Make it a lively evening. TAURUS (April 20 May Put in an extra effort so as to leave nothing incomplete at month's end. Home conditions are better, rather comfortable. Do something for someb o d y you love. GEMINI (May 21 June Financial matters, rearrange- ments of belongings take up much time and energy today. Older people thrive a bit better. CANCER (June 21 July Push personal matters vigor- ously; get things fined up so you know where you stand. Your confidence builds. Ro- mantic events are promised. LEO (July 23 Aug. Today is good for confidential work, partly concealed by your protective habits. You, may even have to invent something to celebrate to avoid giving Current Obstetric Practice Rapped WASHINGTON (AP) A committee of the National He- search Council reported Wednesday that the current .medical practice of restricting pregnant women to a weight gain of 10 to 14 pounds may be contributing to the high in- fant mortality rate in the United States. THE DOCTOR'S MAILBAG Sunshine Is A Blessing With Several Drawbacks By WAYNE G. BRANBSTADT, M.D. Written for Newspaper Enterprises Assn. most good is' a mixed blessing. Dairy'exposure will give you a tan but it also carries a time bomb in the form of wrinkles and skin cancer. The cancer is readily curable but the prema- ture aging of the skin is not. It may, of course, be concealed by a face-lifting operation. In this respect, Negroes are in a favored position. Their Hepatitis Method Reported WASHINGTON (AP) Com- mercial researchers reported here a breakthrough against a form of hepatitis which is transmitted via blood transfu- sions and is blamed for illnesses and deaths an- nually in the United States. Specifically, they reported ob- taining the most highly purified form ever available commer- cially of a virus-like particle called the Australia antigen. This agent recently has come unto strong scientific suspicion as a major cause of at least serum hepatitis and possibly also of many eases of the sec- ond form of hepatitis called infectious hepatitis. Together, the two forms of the fiver-inflaming disease strike up to Americans yearly. The scientists, from the Elec- tro-Nucleonics Laboratories Inc. of Eethnsda, Md., said their de- velopment offers a first vital step toward developing a long- tought rapid, inexpensive, and highly sensitive test for mass- screening of up to pints of transfusion blood do- nated each year for the possible presence of the serum form of the disease. But they also said the new de- velopment could also lead to earlier detection of undiagnosed cases of both serum and infec- tious hepatitis. skin pigment protects them from the harmful effects of the sun and, as a result, they usual- ly look much younger than they are. For further proof you need only compare the skin of your face or the back of your hand with that of your lower abdo- men or back. In even the elder- gly, the latter is usually as healthy as a youngster's. In a recent study, Dr. A. M. Kligman found that the damag- ing effects of sunlight begin early in life and are often severe by the age of 20. The skin of the ears and cheeks showed the greatest changes. The sun's rays are most dam- aging between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Dr. Kligman advises all per- sons who must work in direct sunlight sailors, farmers and sports participants to shield the exposed areas with appro- priate clothing or the applica- tion of cosmetic sunscreens, es- pecially the kinds that contain paraminobenzoic acid or its es- ters. These preparations not only give immediate protection but also resist sweating and bathing. Q What effect does sun- bathing have on one's hair? A It makes the hair brittle unless it is naturally very oily. Q I'm so nervous that any noise scares me. As a result, I sometimes bite my tongue or lips. How can I prevent this? A Yours is an extreme case. A short course of a tran- quilizer should be given while your doctor determines the cause of your tension. An over- active thyroid, emotional imma- turity, low blood sugar and se- vete asthma are possible causes. Q I read an article that said the virus of serum hepa- titis or catarrhal jaundice, transmitted through hypoder- mic needles, is highly resistant to ordinary methods of sterili- zation. Would an autoclave de- stroy it? A Autoclaving (applying steam under pressure) or boil- tog both the needles and syrin- ges for at least 15 minutes will kill this virus.

The group recommended an average weight gain of 24 pounds. In the same report, the NCR's committee on maternal nutrition said girls who be- come pregnant before they are 17 run great risks for both themselves and their babies that this is especially true for non-white girls from a low-income families. The committee said many of the biological risks involved for the young mother are com nected with nutrition depletion and it further explained: they are grow- ing, most girls under 17 have greater nutritional require- ments in relation to body size than do adult therefore, the additional nu- trient demands of pregnancy may compromise their growth potential and increase their risk in pregnancy. In connection with its criti- cism of current obstetric practices of restricting what it termed "normal weight gain" for pregnant women in gen- eral, the committee also said: supplementation of diets of pregnant women with vitamin and mineral preparations is of doubtful value, with the exception of Iron and foiie aeid. Also too many doctors draw heavily on information in commercially- prepared diet guides and tend to rely excessively on vitamin and mineral supplements for preventing and treating nutri- tional deficiencies. eight reduction pro- grams and severe caloric re- strictions should not be under- taken during pregnancy, even for obese women, because of the possibility of adverse ef- fects on the weight of the un- born child and on his or her neurological development.

Railway Practice Attacked WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. Food and Drug Administra- tion will propose steps aimed at eventually ending the railway practice of dumping raw human waste along the tracks, Com- missioner Charles C. Edwards has informed Congress. But Edwards' testimony yes- terday before a House of Representatives subcommittee "amounts to a total surrender to the railroad con- sumer crusader Ralph Nader told the congressional group. R. R. Manion, representing the Association of American Railroads, said on the basis of a live-year sanitation study 20 years ago "and on the sharply reduced volume of waste since that time, we fail to see that a problem exists." Nader told the subcommittee the railways are dumping hundreds of millions of pounds of raw human waste, in a prac- tice he said "allows a unique in- sight into the intransigence of these corporations and the weak, self-demeaning posture of the Food and Drug Administra- tion toward them." The railroads have invested in their industry, Nader said, in esti- mating it would cost a year to have the sanitary equipment needed to prevent dumping. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H.
