Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 THE LETHBRIDOE HERAkO Tuesday, March 1773 LAWRENCE E. LAMB, MD. Soiled sea water won't aid diabetes Dear Lamb Is there' any proven medical value in boiling sea water tor its trace minerals to cure diatietes or arthritis in older, people? Also since gout's milk is lower to fat, Is it better for a diabetic or lor overweight peoole? Dear Header There is ab- solutely no supportable evi- dence "that boiled sea water is a satisfactory dire for either diabetes or arthritis. I know that boiled sea water has been pushed by some individuals ior this but most reputable scien- tists wou'd say that there is no evidence of it'having any value for this purpose. As far as goat's milk is con- cerned, it is not lower in fat. According ti Vie U.S. Depart- ment of Aerin'Hure, ecat's m'% is 4 tier cent tf-e co-nmerriil vsr'etv of cow's milk snld is nsuaVv 3.5 cert f2t. Thus, there is no advart- as fir as content is con- ferred in drinking mi'k ?s oonosed to milk. Heat's milk has sometimes been rec- because it is more or sometimes of alleraies fo cow's This is unrelated to the Dear Reader The reason your doctor asked your mother- in-law to restrict sail was to avoid sodium. Normal table salt Is made up of sodium chloride. Tliis really doesn't have any- thing to do with calcium. Usu- ally the sodium is restricted to help control blood pressure or to prevent the accumulation of fluid in people who have this problem, for example, with heart failure. Certainly if she is using sail and her doctor advised her no' o it's not doing her any good iid may be causing her some ignifleant harm. If she has ilgK blood pressure and is sup- posed to bs on a salt-restricteut you keeo your sense of hu- mor, you will prevail in time.

Powhat you canto encourage Him. BLONDIE-By Chic Young on a low-salt diet. Individuals on low salt diets should not add salt to the prep- aration of any of their foods, and if they limit the animal products in "their diet and follow (his procedure, they will have a fairly low sodium diet. A good low sodium source of pro- tein is common mature beans and of these, the old Navy bean is as good as any. They contain a lot of protein and are as low in sodium as rice. They are also low in fat content. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this news- paper, P.O.

Ask Andy BEETLE BAHEY-By Mort Wnlker GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN e im rn cwaM Both vulnerable. South deals. NORTH 0 AJ1083 WEST EAST 0 954 OT! SOUTH ,i J 10 8 J <3 AQ OK02 Pass Pass The bidding: Eonth West North 1 A Pass 2 NT Pass Pass Opening lead: jump to six spades over his partner's two no trump response, was strictly shot fn the dark. While hs has the values to consider a elara, the two small clubs Kftould alert 5iim la the tte- Blrability of making North declarer so that the latter's club holding Is protected against a deadly assault at the opening gun. The suggested tebid by South Is either a temporizing call oE three spades o; else a raise beyond game to four no trump, inviting North to carry on if be has a maxi- mum two no trump re- sponse. Had West opened a club against the slam, there would be no story lo tell for, after East scores the ace of that suit, West cannot be de- nied the ling of spades for the selling 'trick. The latte: chose to play a waiting game, however, and be Jed the sue of hearts. When the dummy was spread, South observed that the contract ostensibly hinged on the location of the king of spades. V East held that card where it was fi- nessable. declarer might ba able to take all 13 tricks In- asmuch as the dummy had plenty of discards available lor bis losing clubs. It the spade finesse lost, then South's only chance was that East had the ace of clubs and West failed lo find1 a dub shift. In an effort to draw a red berrtag across his trail, declarer decided run the remote risk of an adverse ruff in hearts by cashing three rounds of thai suit. After winning the opening lead with the ace of hearts, he overtook his queen North's king and continued with the Jack on which the deuce of diamonds was dis- carded from the closed Next the nine of sjKides was led for a {inesso and West won the trick with tie king. West chose to take Ills op- ponent's play at face value, and assuming that South held the ace. of clubs and was trying to fish for the queen. West exited with trump. Declarer pulled two more roimds of epades, cashed the king of diamonds and overtook the queen with the ace to discard his two clubs on tbe jack and ten of diamonds. It was fa West's power to make sure instead of having to guess on the deal. All that lie needs to do Is to duck the first round of spades. When a second led, East will discard the nine of clubs to make it clear where his high card is located. When West gets in with the king of spades, a club shift becomes Obvious. There was no rush In tha trump suit, inasmuch as West's -honor Is well guard- ed. He might just as well hava given his partner an opportunity to speak his piece loo-inslead of relying solely on declarer'i Clue. Proteins Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Chris- tina Woodard, age 14. of Salt Lako City, Utah, lor her question: hat exactly are proteins? Proteins are the vital ehem- als that every living cell eds to keep going. No won- er they are given such high iority in our daily diets. Ac- .ally, they are groups of sim- e molecules arranged in very omplex chemical units. The units are made mostly carbon and hydrogen, ox- gen and nitrogen perhaps nth other common elements iuch as iodine or sulphur. The small units from which roteins are constructed are Jed amino acids. Biochemists ave found more than 60 dif- erent amino acids in vatlous lant and animal cells. How- ver, it seems that only about 0 of these are used to build the chemical units class- td as proteins. Plants use the nergy of sunlight to build sim- lo raw materials Into the pro- cins from certain foods they A protein molecule is a hain of perhaps hundreds ira'ts selected from 20 or so mino acids. The number of possible combinations is astron- mical. And each living eel has a built-in chemical lab lo issemble the precise proteins t needs to perform this or that unction. We are told that meat aix ish, milk and cheese and var ous vegetables are rich In pro- :eins. So they are. But as item n our daily diet, let's think n .hem as protein-building foods For our bodies are unable tc use these ready-made as served. They must be prop crly digested to break thci apart into amino acid units Then the basic nnils are reas sebmled to form the particula proteins needed by the body. Various amino acids are found distributed among th cells. There, in each nucleus the DNA waits with its geneti blueprint of 1 n s t r u c lion: Prompted by subtle signals, issues coded orders asscm ble the available amino aci< in certain protein structure- The assembly line is manage by HNA, the messenger bic chemical. As this miraculou chemistry proceeds, special structured proteins are bui and sent to fulfill this or th function in the; fantastical! complex business of cellula metabolism. Proteins of various type make up the bulk of p'ant an animal tissues. Meaty muscl and plant fibers, nails ai claws, hair and horns are ma< mostly of building type pro- teins. Other protein types per- form more subtle duties, as en- zymes that govern vital cellu- r activities and hormones at signal general alerts to co- ilinale the reactions of the en- bcdy. j 1 The human body needs 20 or j different amino acids to uild the many types of pro- in it needs. The variety of wds on a balanced daily diet Include these 20 units digestible forms. No one contains them all in bal- nced amounts. This is the lain reason why nutrionists :st a wide variety of foods on vj diet. The other reason is hat a varied menu tempts the iste buds and this pleasant xperience helps the process of Igestion. Andy sends to Denise Gijbels, sge li, of Aguicourt, Ontario, for her question: :ow long does the snowsboc abbit take to change color? The srawshoe rabbit, alias ifi varying hare, changes the olor of his furry coat twice year. In fall, he changes rom reddish browns and greys fluffy outfit ol winter vhite. In spring, he changes sack to Ms summer suit of y colors. Of course, this remarkable masquerade en- ables him to blend to with the winter and summer scenery of i i s northern neighborhood. Some old-timers insist he hanges his color in a single day. Actually the miraculous ransformation takes at least wo weeks and usually longer. The previous coat is shed tuft by furry tuft. The replace- ments are patches of either white for winter or earthy ilends for the coining summer For a few weeks, the varying bare is a pinto type bunny. This s convenient because it occurs during a between season, when the ground is a patchwork of white snow and earthy browns. The pinto bunny is right in style with the scanery. It takes him several weeks to grow the new coat necessary to com- plete his change. By this time, the scenery should match his coat.
