What effect does this have on one's health and what can be done to lower it? Dear Reader The sedimen- tation rate is a very nonspecific test. If you put something in the blood to keep it from clot- tine. the red blood cells will gradually settle to the bottom of the tube. Hence, the term sedimentation rate. As the cells begin to settle, the clear fluid or plasma is left at the top o! the tube. The reading on the sedimentation rate is read by the height of the column clear fluid above the red cells that forms in one hour. The cells fall or form a sedi- mem more rapidly in the pres- cnee of infections. This can bo anything from pneumonia to You may have some irrita- tion or inflammation of your lungs left over from the anes- thetic and surgery phis the care you received after sur- gery.

The rate will actually change during the course of an illness and these changes are some- times used in guiding the ther- apy. The test has been used to tell how soon patients could be gotten out of bed when they had rheumatic fever. As the rheu- matic activity subsides, the sedimentation rate returns to normal and the patient can be allowed to get out of bed to resume more normal activity. Treatment depends on the cause. If there is no evidence of disease or disability any where it might bo ignored. In cidenfly, sedimentation rates fend to be higher in women than in men.

Zenti is a director of Fiji wood products companies. Union Woods of Fiji and Union Industries of Fiji. Immigration officials refused to let him back into the country when he returned from a New Zealand trip.

In Port Alberni, Mr. Zcnti's wife, Verna, said her 33-year- old husband had been in the Soulh Pacific for about three years and bought two Fiji busi- nesses about a year ago. She said her husband's trou- bles stemmed from the fact the Fiji government is trying to take over some foreign-owned businesses and is putting obsta- cles in the way of owners who try to operate them or sell them independently. Balance of nature Andy sends a complete 22- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia lo Al Peters, of Houston, Texas, for his question: What do they mean by the Bal- ance ot Nature? Ecologists mention the bal- ance of nature, especially when warning us not to upset it. Na- turally, we wish to strive for a better world by preserving our environment.
