Drs. R. T. Card and M. C. Brain, medical researchers at McMaster University in Hamil- ton, recently presented a new theory on this at a meeting of tlie Canadian Society for Clini- cal Investigation. And their theory may have "significant implications' for adults with heart disease. Doctors have known for long time that the hemoglobin determinations of c h il d r e n usually are significantly lower than ihose in adults, Dr. Card said in an interview. Hemo- globin is that part of red blood cells which carries oxygen through the blood stream to Uie muscles. People who have lower hemo globin determinations usuall; 'are tired and less peppy. Si why can children run around more? 'HOSPHATES HELP Dr. Card expalned that chi- dren have consideraby moie >hosphate than adults In the tilood fluids.

So, by increasing phosphates in Uie blood, doctors "just might, mind pEtients get belter supplies of oxygen to muscles. The theory, which opened new doors for re- search, would be especially helpful in getting oxygen to tho hcavt muscles during heart at- tacks. "However, its very com- Dr. Card said. Phos- phates have to be handled care- fully in the body and they inter- act with other blood compo- nents.
