Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, June 13, 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr Lamb Is it possible when a woman is pregnant to live with a man who is not the lather of the child and when the baby is born the child will look like the rruin'' Can this child more or less pick up the man's looks eyes. hair, even though he is not the father0 Dear Reader The phvsical characteristics are determined by the genes Half of the genes come from the mother and half from the lather Some of the traits that appear in the child may not resemble either parent because a 'ess dominant gene was passed on to the child That is how a child look like someone else in the family besides the actual parents There is no that just living with a man will give the newborn child any particular phvsical characteristics Any similarities are a coincidence or are characteristics the man also shared with the real father As the child gets older he may adopt mannerisms, posture and speech of the man he identifies as father, even though there may be no blood relationship This can often give the impression of similarity Dear Dr. Lamb I have had a problem for the past year of retaining water Once a week I take a pill to eliminate and relieve the swelling of some parts of my body Is there perhaps another way. perhaps through drinking juices or eating certain foods which would help m a more natural way? Dear Reader That depends a lot on what is causing you to retain fluid Many women have this problem in relation to their regular menstrual cycle It is known as premenstrual retention The cause here is the increased production of female hormone, specifically estrogen, in a cyclical fashion The estrogen causes the body to retain salt Water is retained, because the body is holding on to excess salt Water retention can also be caused by heart disease, kidney disease, liver disease and in the legs by varicose veins, just to mention a few causes In most of these problems i not veins, however) the difficulty is caused by- retention of excess amounts of salt Normally the kidney eliminates the salt we don't need When you take a pill to eliminate water it chemically causes the kidney to eliminate the excess salt, and the excess water goes with the salt The only nutritional approach to this problem is to eat less salt That may mean eliminating a lot of foods you need because they also contain salt in their natural form I am thinking of milk and meat, in particular The extreme form of a low-salt diet is the rice diet, which means eating only rice and fruit I don't recommend this under any circumstances for anyone except under the careful management of a physician Despite my remarks, I do think that'you can help yourself some by avoiding salty foods and not using salt in your cooking or at the table Usually this isn't enough to solve the problem completely, but you can try it 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 ulcers, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for "Ulcers" booklet.

Pennsylvania, ior her question How are islands formed? One might suppose that the earth uses one. and only one. recipe to build her sea-circled islands. Not at all. Islands are formed in many different has counted all the large and small islands that exist on our watery world Certainly no two of them are exactly alike and every one has a history of its own Some islands are formed when the seabed nses. hoisting them high and dry- above the water. Others are formed when part of a continent sinks below the sea. leaving an island of high ground above the new water level, some islands are built by undersea volcanos. patiently piling up cinders and lava until the peak rises abover the water Others are formed by growing undersea mountains that finally hoist their highest peaks above the waves Some of the most interesting islands are made of rocky coral, built by generations of little polyp creatures. Somei.mes they form along tropical and semi- trnpical shores, where coral reefs finally grow tall enough to remain above the tides. More often they are coral atolls, where masses of stony coral form a crescent around the rim of a submerged volcano. Recently a most dramatic new island appeared in the northern Atlantic. The sudden event began when an undersea volcano erupted with sound and fury Clouds of steamy fumes poured into the air. rivers of red hot iava seethed to the surface After a series of these eruptions, the cooling lava built a cone large enough to form a new volcanic isle Islands of this sort mav be formed in a few weeks or oven days On the other hand. it may Jake a million years or more !o build a coral island After all. the soft coral polyps are vcrv. verv small The nMVM I QUIT TM _ MERCHANDISE WE ARE PREPARING- AM AUSPICIOUS OCCASION!

Many millions ot years ago. all the earth's dry land formed a single continent maybe somewhere near what is now the South Pole. Through the ages, this original continent cracked and the sections drifted apart, like rafts through the world ocean Eventually one of the separated pieces became Australia, another became Greenland. The earth is a watery world and most of its surface is. and for a large part of its history has been, covered by water. The original land mass must have been an island continent, for the sea surrounded it on every side Though the original water now is partitioned with land areas, is seas still merge to form a global ocean So we might regard the major land masses as large, sea-surrounded islands that formed when the original continent split and its fragments drifted apart asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
