Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta fooiday, 16, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 Physicians Accept Pill With Caution JASPER, Alia. (CP) Tlic Society of Obstetricians and Gy naecologisls of Canada ai nounccd Saturday it endorse oral contraceptives as a mean of birth control. A statement released at tli society's annual convention sai' the benefits cf taking the pi] make any associated risks mini mal and "therefore accept able." But the statement said physi cians must be aware of advcrs effects the pill can produce ii some persons. They must care- fully assess physical condition of patients before and regularly during use. "Oral contraceptives, in com mon with almost all mcdica tions, may produce serious ad verse reaction in a small per centage of users." the slate ment said. "Some evidence exists tha the most important one is tin production of thrcinbo-emboli disease, especially in thosi women already predisposed bj previous similar occurences or by other circulatory abnormal! ties, such as severe varicosities or hypertension." The statement said prcsen' evidence is incomplete but i suggests there may be a link between these risks and specific amounts of hormones in certain pills. Delegates approved a recom mendation that opinions be so- licited from members for use when governments consider abortion law changes! The society's committee on therapeutic abortion said found the I9G9 amendment to the Crimdnal Code of Canada on therapeutic abortions reasona bly satisfactory.

Dr. Kenneth Carrull, affiliated vith the University of Western Ontario, said in an interview lere tests conducted on thou- sands of female rats during the ast five years, in which they were given high-fat diets, howed an increase in mam- mary tumor incidence. "We also checked into the his- ory of women around the world and found that those who con- umed high-fat diets seemed to lave a higher incidence of ireast cancer. "Canada was one of the ooun- ries leading in the number of ireast cancers while Denmark .nd The Netherlands too were ugh. "Japan was at bottom of the scale with a low incidence of mammary cancer ar-d a cor- responding low-fat diet." HAS THEOHY Dr. Carroll has a theory that "if we change the high-fat diets Band Members Frank Hcsek, conductor of the Kiwanis Band has extended a special invitation for all ex- perienced band players to play with Ins band duruig the sum- mer. Some instruments and all uni- forms will be provided. Practices are Friday, 6 to p.m. and Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m. Anyone wishing to play just for the Lethbridge Exhibition is also invited to attend the last few practices before fair week iin July. considerably and study the re- sults it may be well worth the investigation." "Many women do a lot of cooking with corn oil, eat lots of butter, eggs, cheeses and other high-fat content foods. "Our tests with rats show that these fatty deposits tend to ac- cumulate in the fatty tissues of the breast." In the case of the rats, they had been treated to a cancer-in- ducing compound prior to get- ting high fat diets, suggesting the effect was related to promo- tion rather than initiation of the carcinogenic process. Dr. Carroll says there are two distinct stages for breast can- cer. "The first involves changes in the cells which can lead to a cancer formation and the sec- ond is the 'turning on' of the malignancy. "Fatty diets may turn it on in women who have gone through the first stage." Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I married late (29) and was a successful career girl at the time. My husband wanted a fam- ily immediately. I did not. I secretly used contraceptives, pre- tending to want a child as much as he did. When he accideritly learned of my deception, I decided to make an honest attempt to have a baby in order to save our marriage. My rotten luck was with'me. I became pregnant imme- diately. My husband was overjoyed. I had a terrible nine months and a horrible delivery. Gregory was a breach birth and colicky for the first week. We didn't know what a good night's sleep was for ten months. Gregory is now seven years old and has given us1 nothing but aggravation. He is allergic to everything and I can't handle him. Neither can his teacher. She told me that in 20 years in education she has never seen a more difficult child. He is dis- obedient, stubborn, incorrigible and a disruptive influence wher- ever he goes. She suggested counselling. My husband, who professed to want this child so much, is never home. His work takes him out of town from Monday through Friday. He says the boy is a mess because I'm a poor disciplinarian. He wants to send Gregory to a military school to "straighten him out." We finally found a school that till take Mm. What do you Out. DEAR WORN: I could write a book on what's wrong with your on your you need a quick answer. The boy needs counselling, not military school. And you need counselling, too. A child whose mother regarded his conception as "rotten luck" was in trouble the moment he was born. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Is it too much to ask a son who makes a fine living to pick up the phone and call his mother twice a month? On Sunday it would cost him one dollar. The last time we spoke I placed the call. He said he would call me That was three weeks ago. Why are children so selfish and thoughtless? I'm dying to hear his voice. Shall I call him? Monday DEAR BLUE: Children don't get selfish' and thoughtless overnight. Most of them were indulged or ignored when they were younger. My advice is to leave your son alone. You can't change him. Maybe when his children give him the chill he'll remember to pick up a phone and call you. Dr. F. H.
