Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta (IS - TOIUTNMIDOI HIRAID - Wednesday, March 24,1971 Your horoscope By Jean 4 Dixon THURSDAY, MARCH 25 TOUR BIRTHDAY TO* DAY: You can have a halcyon year ahead if you will imply take up existing opportunity where you are and work earnestly. Seek the backing of older people and community institutions for your ventures. Social and romantic interests should include no particular urgency or crisis, much quiet, self* fulfillment. Today's natives appreciate fine arts, esthetic values in any field. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Think young, don't dwesll on ailments Dear Dr. Lamb - Would thinking about getting old and wrinkles and varicose veins cause these things to happen? Dear Reader - If you think about them long enough.   * Dear Dr. Lamb - I have angina of the heart and wondered, if any one ever gets over this or is it something I will have to learn to live with? I am nervous and in my 40s and female. Would yon say some-tUnc about angtaa of the heart in your column? Dear Reader - The most common cause of anginal chest pain is atherosclerosis, fatty deposits in the arteries. It is fairly uncommon in women of your age and quite common in older women. Men can have it, too, particularly after a heart attack. Emotional tension or excitement can cause tin pain: That is why the doctor tries to eliminate excitement or stress for a heart patient. Often an overweight person can help himself by losing a lot of weight. This decreases the amount of work the heart needs to do. I can't emphasize too strongly that even if a person has a minimal amount of extra fat, the loss of fat can greatly increase the amount of work a person can do without having heart pain. Of course, coffee, particularly in nervous people, should be stopped and cigarettes eliminated. After weight' reduction some people benefit from a walking program. But before you start you should check with your doctor to be certain an exercise program won't be too much for you. Incidentally, life's situations - like getting excited watching television - often causa the heart to work harder than a good normal walk. A person has to have rather severe heart disease before he can't walk m good weather. �   Dear Dr. Lamb -Is chicken fat high in cholesterol? Dear Reader - No. However the American Heart Association believes that a diet high in fat leads to elevation of the blood cholesterol m the body even if the food is low in cholesterol. This jb particularly true of saturated fat, (usually animal fat). Fryer chickens and young turkeys are the best poultry source of meat with limited amounts of fat. 140,000 hungry for famine relief NAIROBI (AP) - Drought in areas of Kenya has placed more than 140,000 people on famine relief anil aided the spread of cholera. The disease took 20 lives in one recent week. These are areas where living Is at the subsistence level, and virtually everything goes wrong when the rains fall. Tens of thousands of people may rely on famine relief for months. If the spring rains fail, tens of thousands of others will face starvation. If the rains come in abundance, many fear floods will wash away seeds nd seedlings while making roads impassable for relief supplies. Recently, an army of some 18,000 finally stopped a- forest fire on the slopes of Mount Kenya, but only after it had destroyed about 17,000 acres of timber worth nearly $3 million. Drought, caused by the failure of the "short rains" in November and December, has burned crops in the wilting sun, dried wells and river beds and left thousands of camels, goats and cows to die in the dust. FACE MALNUTRITION . Doctors say people living In the affected areas face dehydration and malnutrition, leaving them weak and susceptible to illness. Cholera, marked by diarrhoea and vomiting, can kill within 24 hours without quick medical treatment. It killed an unknown number of people in neighboring Somalia and Ethiopia earlier this year. The figure is unknown because many died in the bush and some governments are reluctant to reveal figures for fear of causing panic among inhabitants, visitors and importers. Within a week of Kenya's first reported cholera case, Israel and Japan each flew in one million doses of vaccine. Authorities launched a widespread health education and cleanup campaign as doctors administered the vaccine. Nairobi, a city of 500,000, and the port city of Mombasa have reported shortages of dairy products due to the drought's effect on milk production. The Fort supermarket in Mombasa says milk supplies have been cut by half and butter and cheese deliveries are down 90 per cent. A busy Nairobi market said its customers had accepted arbitrary rationing of dairy products. Kenyan officials say available livestock is down 40 per cent. Three-fourths of its sources are under quarantine as cattle, weakened by lack of water and fodder, also face disease. Communist China last week gave President Jomo Kenyatta a cheque for $81,000 on behalf of the Chinese Red Cross and promised food and medical supplies worth nearly $300,000. Zanzibar Island donated $140,000, 380 tons of rice and 20 tons of dates. GOREN ON BRIDGE BY CHARLES H. GOREN Id rnilOTk CMOM TrtMW] Both vulnerable. North teals. NORTH *AQS
