Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wtdnmdty, March 13, 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I would like to know if using hair spray in spray cans is dang'erous. I have been hearing rumors that it is because you spray so near the lace that you inhale the fumes from the pressurized gas. If it's so dangerous why has it been on the market so long7 What about all this protein in hair spray being so wonderful for hair. Is it worth the difference in price? Dear Reader No aerosols are completely safe. But then no 'knife is either and yet we use them every day. If you tollow directions on aerosol cans you are not likely to have serious problems. A number ot people who have allergic tendencies have minor complaints about sprays. Aerosol products really have three basic parts, the pressurized gas that propels the material, the ingredient you are going to use, and something to dissolve the ingredient in the pressurized gas All three of these can be dangerous The pressurized gas is potentially lethal. Some people have used it for sniffing. This is very dangerous and unpredictable. It can cause a healthy heart to stop suddenly. The perverted use of the product is like using a knife for the wrong purpose. The questions about hair spray were among the first concerns about these products It was first reported that the hair spray formed solid materials in the lungs that caused lung problems. Further studies failed to prove this was the case. However, the ingredients used in some deodorant sprays are capable of doing this No one has yet proved that the protein sprays for hair are dangerous. However, there is the concern the protein may sensitize a person to a particular protein, and, at a later date, when the person gets a shot with that protein in it say for a vaccination he may have a bad reaction. Hair is largely built from protein I don't see any way the protein added to the hair can do anything more for the hair than coat it. In this sense it is much like a covering of nail polish to harden nails. Some of the nail polishes to harden nails, though, are very effective. It would have to be an individual matter. If it makes a person's hair look better and they want to use it then it might be worth it. I want to caution readers about using aerosol sprays in- to the throat. Many of these products have been removed from the market. If you want to spray something into the nose or throat area, don't use an aerosol. The liquified gas can be absorbed this way, and, in many ways you are doing a form of "sniffing." It is much better to use a plastic squeeze bottle where you provide the mechanical action for the spraying rather than using a pressurized gas. There are a variety of ingredients in different hair sprays. And, the effects of all of these are not yet known. Several studies are in progress on beauty operators to see what effect these have on them. The most common danger from aerosols, though, is failing to follow the directions. When the spray, whether it is a paint or a bathroom cleaner, says use only in a well-ventilated room or outdoors it means just that. More than one person has been found unconscious from failing to read and heed. So, if you are going to use aerosols, for heavens sake read the directions.

This took most of the moisture from the original atmosphere. Meantime, the mixture of other airy gases settled down more or less as they are today. The plant world adds countless tons of oxygen to the atmosphere every day and breezy winds waft it around the globe. So as long as the earth has enough green plants, we shall never run out of breathable oxygen. The sun evaporates moisture from the surface and the vapor becomes clouds that shed rain. So long as the sun shines and the earth spins, the air will drop drinkable rainwater onto our heads. Questions by child- ren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

"No wastage with either and you prefer the smaller tiles, but they'd cost us 133.11 more for the complete floor." What were the dimensions of that room? Thanks for an idea to F. C. Asbury.
