Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 5, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIUGE HERALD Friday, May 5, 1971 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON SATURDAY, MAY 6 Your blrlliday today: This Is a lime in your life to cor- rect old errors, retrieve what- ever you can of lost or lent I possessions. Material affairs thrive You musl seek spiritu- al growth despite distraction. Emotional experience is mix- ed Today's natives usually LAWRENCE E. LAMB. M. D. Get yourself a family doctor Dear Dr. Lamb I am 67 years old and my husband and I li.ive moved to Florida. The least bit of oxerUon makes It difficult for me to breathe, but when I am relaxing I breathe normally. Our family doctor in Pennsylvania told me I had chronic bronchitis. Is it seri- ous? We do not have a family doctor here and I need some advice. Is there anything I can do to get some relief? I have been smoking cigarettes for the Jast 50 years and am wonder- ing if I could have any kind of reaction if I stopped smoking. near Reader Chronic bron- chitis means long standing In- flammation of the bronchi or air passages in the lungs. How serious it is depends on how severe the inflammation is, and how much lung damage has occurred. If you get short of breath with a very little amount of exertion, I would guess that you have quite a bit of lung disease. Individuals who have smoked Farm tax law review under way OTTAWA federal government has set up a special group of officials to review tax laws relating to agriculture, Jtinister of State Pat Mahoney eaid today. Speaking to a conference of tax executives, Mr. Mahoney eaid the review followed repre- sentations by "concerned tax- and similar reviews (or other industries may be un- dertaken. Mr. Mahoney, who assists Fi- nance Minister John Turner in the field of tax policy, said the government is reviewing the ap- plication of recent tax changes to ensure they work as in- tended. He was the opening a lol for a long period of time have a much greater probabil- ity of having .severe lung dis- ease of the type that you ap- parently have. Perhaps tho lung damage that cigarettes can cause in so many people like yourself is even raore im- portant than cancer of the lungs. I think you certainly should quit smoking. It mjght do a lol lo help your breathing problem and it would be the first thing that a doctor should ask you to do if you have any significant lung damage or bronchitis. Some people do have trouble stopping smoking and will have unpleasant symptoms which are withdrawal symptoms from nicotine. J know a Jot of people move to Florida away from their family, friends and their doctor, and I know that many people like yourself neglect get- ting a new family doctor. It is hard to do sometimes, particu- larly in Florida, because of the large number of people who need family doctors. Dear Dr. Lamb Recently I have read that an aid to con- trolling constipation consisted of a glass of water containing two teaspoons full of apple ci- der vinegar before meals. Also, this is supposed to set as a cleaner all through the alimen- tary canal. In your oninion, is this beneficial or is it perhaps harmful. Dear Header doubt that it will be harmful for most healthy people. To the extent that many people's problems with constipation are aided hy Increasing intake of liquids, it can even be helpful. One of the most useful things people can do lor constipation problems is to establish a regular morning habit after breakfast and to drink plenty of fluids with the breakfast meal. The apple c der vinegar may have some- what the same effect as fres fruits and prunes. exercise much local influence, with occasional dramatic re- versals.

Manuifact u r e r s strive to keep their trade se- crets, hence the fine details o this or that recipe are no known. However, we do know that the major raw material are the small gaseous mole- cules of benzene and methane ethylene, propylene and bury lene. Various chemical pro- cesses, heat and sometime, pressure are used to synthesize them into ringed, branched chained or other giant poly mers. For example, different meth ods remodel benzene lo create nylon or aspirin, clyes or deter gents, polystyrene or tough syn theiic1 rubber.
