Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, March 23, 1973 LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Cottage cheese good for you Dear Dr. Lamb -I eat cottage cheese every day for protein but wondered if I might be getting too much calcium. I am in my late 60s and have arthritis. Would all this cottage cheese have an adverse effect on the arthritis? Dear Reader - All that cottage cheese is probably good for you. There are only a few people who have basic underlying metabolic problems who can't utilize large amounts of calcium in their diets. The problem usually is just the opposite, that people aren't getting enough calcium. Women, in particular, need large amounts of calcium to prevent the decalcification of the spine and other bones that occurs after the change of life. The decalcification of the spine past middle age in women is responsible for the large number of women that you see who have a hump in their back and otherwise begin to lose their height. The decalcification is related to the changes in hormones and is much more likely to occur in women who are not getting enough calcium in their diet. This is why I always recommend that from some source, women particularly, should get the same amount of calcium that's present in a quart of milk on a daily basis. One of these good sources is cottage cheese. Another is canned salmon (particularly - if you eat the bones that are in it). In the interest of keeping down calories and also if a person needs to limit the fat intake in the diet to prevent fatty deposits in the arteries and other problems, No cuts wanted m services at school WANHAM (CP) - About 500 people who jammed the Wan-ham school made it clear to Spirit River District School Board they want no cut in services at their high school. The board has suggested that eight teachers be cut from staff from various schools in the district because of a $100, 000 budget reduction. one can use the uncreamed cottage cheese and the fortified skim milk. There seems to be a common idea among people with arthritis that their problem is caused by too much calcium. This is completely wrong. Arthritis is not caused or made worse by having too much calcium in the diet. Enjoy your cottage cheese. It's a good source of protein and calcium. * * * Dear Dr. LamD - I was glad to read your recent article on hiatal hernia, as I have one. I have been thinking about getting a slant board to use for stimulating other parts of my body for short periods each day. This is arranged so that the feet are at least 15 inches higher than the head. Now I have been wondering if this would be bad for the hernia. I do sleep with the head of my bed elevated but I didn't know until I read your column that you shouldn't bend over to pick things up. Dear Reader - Forget about the slant board. Remember that a hiatal hernia literally has the effect of a hole in the diaphragm and the problem all begins when the stomach begins to s 1 i d e through the hole. As long as you're standing up right and there's not too much pressure in the abdomen, this is not inclined to happen. That's why the head of the bed is elevated. If you use a slant board or do any other type of exercise in which the head is lower than the feet you're apt to cause the hernia to slide through the hole in the diaphragm. In general, people who have hiatal hernia should not do exercises that use the abdominal muscle, such as sit-ups, until after their stomach has had a chance to completely empty. And after having done a period of sit-ups it probably would be a good idea to either sit. or better, stand up for a period of time to make sure that any tendency for the stomach to herniate into the diaphragm will at least be minimized.
