Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE June Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb Recently I read an article on the cider vinegar, lecithin, kelp, B-6 diet as a natural way to beauty The diet consisted of calories a day, lecithin granules sprinkled over raw wheat germ or in orange juice or milk once a day, a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water after each meal, five or six kelp tablets with the cider vinegar, B complex vitamin every day and vitamin B-6 (50 milligrams) each day. 1 would like for you to comment on this diet and its soundness I'm 45, weigh 110 pounds and am five-feet-one. I want to lose five pounds, and the diet is designed to take off excess fat if a slow metabolism is apparent. I'm in good health and have a complete yearly checkup. Dear Reader As I have said before, I do not approve of any adult eating less than 1200 calories a day except under a doctor's supervision. Any fewer calories than this will result in deficiencies in vitamins and minerals. I think it is a good idea to take vitamins with deficient diets, but in most cases a deficient diet is a bad idea to start with. This diet will probably cause a lot of people to lose weight, because it contains only calories a day. Not only will you lose weight, but if you don't eat the right foods m that calories to get the proper amounts of vitamins and minerals you will also lose your health In other words, you may lose more than just pounds. There is absolutely nothing in the cider and water routine that will magically cause you to lose weight. It may help fill your stomach and help curb your appetite. I wouldn't even count on that Water has a tendency to pass right through the stomach and doesn't help to give you a feeling of fullness very long. The sprinkling of lecithin is nothing Lecithin, as I have mentioned many times before, is just another fat. Basically it is a compound of fatty acids, one of which has some phosphorous connected to choline. The choline is found in abundance in your 'meats. Most real low-calorie diets contain some meat and hence plenty of choline. So, the sprinkling of a special fat on your food isn't going to do a thing for you. Such ideas usually spring from a complete lack of understanding of how the body digests and uses foods. Lecithin is digested in the stomach and intestine and not absorbed as lecithin into the body. The lecithin in your blood-stream is manufactured in the liver from choline, fatty acids from your regular food You can swallow lecithin until you pop and it won't change this basic fact. The kelp is just one more folklore-type addition of so- called magic. It won't help you either unless you have an iodine deficiency. It is an iodine-containing sea weed. Remember always that the goal of a successful diet is to lose fat not pounds or needed body tissues, and to do so without harming the body. The last part of this rule is usually ignored in fad diets. In summary, I can't recommend the cider water diet as a sound, healthy practice. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019.

Un- fortunately, if you mere hu- mans are involved, some plays take us by surprise, and even a slight hesitation often tips off our holding. South became interested in slam the moment he received a jump raise from his part- ner Since it would be foolish to inquire about aces with a weak doubleton. South showed his ambitions with a cue-bid of spades With all his points in prime controls and a fine band distributionally. North needed no more encourage- ment and immediately launched into Blackwood, set- tling in the small slam when he learned his side was off an ace- West led a spade, and when dummy came down declarer was not completely happy with what he saw. He was solid in trumps and the black suits, but he was left with a guess in would have preferred North to have the ace of diamonds rather than the king-jack. Since everything depended on how declarer played the diamonds, it seemed that de- clarer should draw trumps and then lead toward dummy, hoping he would guess right. However, declarer was aware of the advantage of surprise, and decided to make full use of it. He won the opening lead with the ace of spades and immediately shot back the nine of diamonds. There might be some moral justice if we could report that West followed smoothly with the ten of diamonds and de- clarer went wrong, but that was not the case. The diamond play caught West unawares, and he hesitated for a mo- ment before playing the ten. Since he was unlikely to have a problem if he'held the queen. South decided that West must hold the ace Ac- cordingly, he went up with the king of diamonds and brought home a slam that depended more on reading the opponents than on reading the cards.

Ask Andy MOON Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Joan Fleckenstein, age 11, of Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada, for her question. Why do men want to go to the moon? People depended on Wilbur and Orville to fix their bikes But the young Wright brothers dreamed of travelling by air. They studied all the possibilities and at last were ready to test their fantastic invention. As you know, this was the first successful engine-driven airplane. But wouldn't you know, the people back home complained. They said that the Wrights should stop wasting time and tend to their bicycle shop. Nobody paid much attention when the Wright brothers invented the airplane aside from those who said it was a waste of time. Certainly on December 17. 1903, nobody dreamed that their first flight would lead to the fabulous air age. It seems that everybody forgot that the world and especially human history must keep changing. And each step forward depends on ideas and brave dreams. It also calls for enormous effort and sometimes for sacrifices. We live at the beginning of the Space Age when, for the first time in human history. we realize that it is possible for earthlings to visit other worlds. This is a fantastic dream of the ages and in our time we have seen the first of it proved possible. Without a doubt, that is the main reason why men wished to land on the moon. Surely every young space-ager dreams of voyaging to visit another world. Well, the first small step has succeeded, for our nearest other world is the moon. The age of airplane flight was costly, very costly but the rewards were far greater than anyone expected. The space age is a far more stupendous advance. So one would expect it to be even more costly And so it is. One also would expect it to produce a lot of rewards And it so happens that the depart- ment of space age benefits has turned out to sur- pass everybody's wildest ex- pectations. One reason for this is the fact that space is a new en- vironment that calls for new everything. It was necessary to design special clothes and food, air and water systems for spacemen. Special spacecraft need special fuels, metals and chemicals. All these new items were devised to make the space age possible But hundreds of them also are used to improve everyday items down here on the ground. Perhaps the greatest benefit occurred behind the scenes Scientists were becoming so specialized that it was hard to understand what experts in other fields were doing. Space is a new realm that calls for changes in everything. The space age called for experts in all fields to give their best. Different specialists learned to exchange ideas and work together as teams. All sorts of new space age items already are used in our everyday lives. Space age satellites send down global pictures of the weather and relay long distance TV. Other satellites survey water and mineral resources and spot crop diseases related to global food supplies. All these and countless other bonuses are ours because men wanted to go to the moon and teams of experts worked like heroes to make this possible. by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.
