Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE June Lawrence Lamb M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB I've heard a lot of doctors say that it is wrong to be fat and to get rid ot H. but some of them are pretty chubby I've heard doctors say to give up smoking and drinking at. they are bad for you and shorten your life span. Yet, I read about some man who has smoked a cigar every day of his life, and he lived to be well over 100 years of age. I've read about women who drank a big glass of beer every day of their lives, and yet they lived to over 100 years of age. How do you account for all of this9 DEAR READER First about doctors. Their role is to provide the best available information and advice to their patients, whether or not they are able to follow it themselves Some doctors are definitely too fat You are kind to say pretty chubby, but the truth is they are just too fat Many other doctors are able to control their body weight and do so conscientiously Doctors are human, and it's hard for those who have trouble controlling their weight to do so just as it is for other people. This doesn't alter the good advice they give their patients to avoid obesity. Just because they have trouble following this good advice is no reason that they shouldn't make this useful information available to their patients Flashback By THE CANADIAN PRESS June 8, 1974 Fathers Le Caron, Jamet, Dolbeau and Duplessis, the first priests in Canada, reached Quebec from France 359 years ago today in 1615 Joseph Le Caron became the first missionary to the Hurons and married Louis Hebert's daughter to a settler in 1618 His mission ended when England seized New France in 1629 and Le Caron died in France in 1632, on the day the province was restored to France by treaty 1736 Fur-trader Jean Baptiste de la Verendrye was murdered by Sioux Indians. 1905 President Theodore Roosevelt offered to mediate the Russian-Japanese war. 1942 Japanese submarines shelled Sydney, Australia. 1959 France indicated no further commitments to NATO unless it was given larger powers and aid in nuclear development. Stephen Ward was arrested in the Profumo scandal Regarding smoking, many doctors who used to smoke have quit because of the medical problems they've seen from cigarette smoking. The popular saying is that there must be some reason why doctors have quit smoking. There is. And the number, incidentally, is much greater than Some people live long life spans though they ignore very good health advice You heard about them because they are the exception. Nobody writes about the person who smoked two or three packs of cigarettes a day and died of a heart attack in his early 40s. That's not news. A cigar is not nearly as harmful as smoking cigarettes except in the former cigarette smoker Often when he smokes cigars he will inhale them and may be worse off than he was to begin with Most normal cigar smokers, though, do not inhale smoke, and this makes a major difference. A glass of beer a day isn't a great deal of alcohol I don't recommend it, but it isn't going to have a major impact on one's longevity and health, provided there are no medical problems such as ulcers or liver disease. The best studies of groups who have had long life spans show they do things usually recommended The life style of the Abkasians in the Caucasus of Russia is relatively simple. Most of them do not smoke at all If they drink any alcoholic beverages it is a local red wine which is very low in alcoholic content. They remain physically active. Individuals between 90 and 100 years of age work in the fields regularly. This applies to both men and women. They are particularly careful to avoid obesity Their attitude is that if a person begins to show any weight gain he must be sick By not smoking cigarettes, by not using alcohol, by following a diet which is relatively low in fat and prevents obesity, plus remaining physically active, these individuals live the long life spans that have been observed Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on losing weight, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for "Losing Weight" booklet.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March Prefer a middle course, avoiding extremes of behavior and action. By the time you've heard all sides of every story, evening finds you thankful you've made it so well 1974, The Chicago Tribune Ask Andy HEALING Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to John Coutre, age 12, of Libertyville, Illinois, for his question How do wounds heal? Scientists would like to know a lot more on this subject At present, they know that the body repairs itself in well organized stages. They also know some of the biochemicals that trigger and direct the healing process. But most of the miraculous project remains a mystery. However, medical scientists know lots of ways in which we can help or hinder the body during the secretive healing of its wounds. With some assistance the body can do a splendid job of healing torn skin, bashed muscle tissues and broken bones Skin, muscles and bone are made from different tissues, which require different rebuilding operations. A skin scratch be healed in a few days, wounded muscle takes several weeks and it takes several months to mend a bone fracture. Though the rebuilding varies, the healing process always depends on four basic factors. There must a body- wide system that gives top priority to the wounded area. There must be an allocation of new raw materials for repair and rebuilding, plus a system of transportation to deliver these materials to the wounded area. Finally, there must be a local engineering team to decide which materials go where. Some of the signals that trigger the healing operation seem to come from steroids, a complex group of hormones secreted by the adrenal cortex. Nobody knows what alerts them, how they trigger healing or even whether other signals work with them. Meantime, the whole body is alerted by injured nerves hollering for help When a wound occurs, within a few seconds the body is alerted Blood cells erupt to seal leakages, the blood and lymph systems start transporting needed materials to the damaged area. The rebuilding is directed by DNA, the blueprint chemical present in the nucleus of everv cell The DNA orders are transmitted by the messenger biochemical, RNA. With some variations, this basic operation works to heal all wounds. The mending of a factured bone begins when broken blood vessels form a clotted wad called a hematoma. Hard chemicals are dissolved from the jagged splinters and the two broken ends are wrapped in this rubbery pad. Later, bone- building cells called osteoblasts arrive on the scene. A network of connective tissue is built through the hematoma and deposits of hard-bone-building chemicals are added. Gradually, the two broken ends are joined with a bridge of new bone, but the complete healing takes several months. A gashed muscle heals much faster because fleshy tissue has more blood vessels to tote building material to the trouble spot Skin scratches are surface wounds that begin to heal when the oozing blood clots to form a protective scab The body carries on most of its life processes without our advice or assistance But usually it needs our help to heal its wounds. A broken bone must be set and sealed in a cast to keep the ragged edges in place. Badly torn' flesh needs stitches, or the wound leaves a wide scar. Even a skin scratch heals faster and neater when we stick on a bandage. by chil- dren of Herald mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box. 765, Huntington Beach, California 92648.
