Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 24, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, June 24.1974-THE LETHBRIDGE Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I am a 17- year-old girl and have a weight problem. A year ago I weighed less than 100 pounds. Now I weigh 138 pounds. To get under 100 pounds I went on a diet which my parents thought was a sensible diet lots of protein, no desserts, lots of vegetables and fruits, only the good things for me, I thought. Three months later I was slim, but had developed a foot drop. To make a long story short, I was in and out of doctor's offices and hospitals several times before they decided it was caused by a sudden weight loss. After that I started eating normally, plus started taking vitamins to correct the foot drop. I also got a job after school. Right now my foot drop has been corrected, but I am overweight. My grand- parents seem to think that my job has something to do with this problem. The place where I work is a quick food take-out establishment and 75 per cent of the food prepared is fried. My grandparents claim that being around all that cooking oil has caused it to penetrate my body, causing me to be overweight. I am try- ing to diet again and cut down on my eating, but have had no success. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Dear Reader No, you won't get fat from cooking oil penetrating the body. The only way calories penetrate the body is by way of the mouth on their way to the stomach. You can't inhale calories either. If your foot drop was because of weight loss it must have been associated with lack of thiamine (vitamin Bl) or from pressure on nerves to the leg in some mechanical way. The latter seems un- likely. Thiamine does help in such problems A number of overly restricted diets are deficient in thiamine. A young, active girl, often still growing and developing, should never be on a diet that causes her more than a steady weight loss of two pounds a ,week and a loss of only one pound a week is much better. It's slow but safe and trains you how to eat so it doesn't come back. Try again, but be sure you are still getting enough calories to lose weight only gradually and that your diet contains enough vitamins and minerals. For more informa- tion on losing weight, write to me in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019, and ask for the booklet on losing weight. Send 50 cents to cover costs. Dear Dr. Lamb I have read that certain vitamins can make your hair return to its original color. Can you tell me what this vitamin is and how much to take to obtain the desired result, or even some improvement in the color? I have also seen a doctor on T.V. who said that his brown hair was a result of his taking vitamins, otherwise, it would have been white. Dear Reader This idea is completely without scientific foundation. There is nothing in any vitamin that will return your hair to its natural color. About the only way the man on T.V. could have brown hair because of taking vitamins would be if he was wearing a wig after having lost all of his hair from taking toxic doses of vitamin A. Dr. Lamb welcomes questions from his readers, but because of the volume of mail he cannot answer per- sonally. Questions of general interest will be discussed in future columns. Write to Dr. Lamb in care of this new- spaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn Your horoscope ByJemeDixon TUESDAY, JUNE 25 Your birthday today: Brings on the first of a long series of firm decisions if you are to prosper fully. Each notch of progress opens an additional challenge. You're on your way! and largely on your own resources. Relationships run deep and quiet, an underpinn- ing of emotional sustainment. Today's natives develop intense self-discipline, a deep appreciation of the qualities of others. ARIES (March 21-April Reasonable or a bit slow is enough today give things time to settle in place. Attend any long-range agreement that's been hanging fire. Find time for an old friend. TAURUS (April 20-May Family and its connections offer a broad field for interest or concern. Bring your infor- mation up to date. Take nothing for granted in any negotiation. GEMINI (May 21-June Now is the time for definite economy both in cash and per- sonal energy. Any commit- ment should be undertaken with thought of many factors beyond your own convenience CANCER (June 21-July A diplomatic touch saves not just the day but a long future. Insight into an old mystery may be a shock. Be discreet! Home life and its improve- ment come up as a main issue. LEO (July 23-Aug. Financial matters drift into moments of decision- dilemma; no time is left for reconsideration. Depend on nobody for anything beyond well-established normal routine. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. Fast talk runs a full range of sales pitch. There's no urgency to get into new ven- tures. The sound ones will still be available after you have checked them out. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. The unexpected is the order of the day. Delay your response to be sure where your best interests lead. The most im- portant considerations may not be visible at all today. SCORPIO (Oct. Be yourself without internal conflicts; all else then clicks right. Keep all dealings aboveboard. Nothing works so well as meditation and the serenity it brings. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22- Dec. It's almost certain you'll have to put in a heavier contribution to your family and community. Partnerships tend to confusing results go it alone CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. Be prepared for contrary opinions and edgy relations. Rivals are at their com- petitive best; close associates are uncommonly balky Be coolly sensible. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. What seems simple and direct to you is likely very strange to many others. Take note of where you are and where they are, then seek some common ground. PISCES (Feb. 19-March You'll be proud of your ability to get along with peo- ple during this day of pleasant surfaces and intense under- currents of feelings. Many im- portant issues elude ready view. 1974, The Chicago Tribune Ask Andy Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN The CMiciio Tribunt BRIDGE QUIZ ANSWERS Q.
