Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb My father and I have been in dispute for quite a while over the use of a product to tenderize meat My father thinks that if it tenderizes meat it can also tenderize a person's stomach Is that Dear Reader I won't comment on the controversies surrounding all the various ingredients in but none of these really relate to tenderizing the stomach. Our stomach is protected from tenderizing. The best tendenzer in the world is the acid pepsin juice formed normally by the stomach The hydrochloric acid and the enzyme will start the initial digestion of any meat we breaking it down into smaller chemical units Its action helps to convert solid meat into a slush before it can even leave the stomach The acid pepsin juice in large quantities will digest areas of the small intestine just outside the stomach causing a duodenal ulcer. if you have a faulty closure mechanism at the top of the stomach the acid pepsin juice will regurgutate into the lower esophagus causing or an ulcer This can happen with hiatal hernia For more information on ulcers or hiatal send for booklets I have prepared for readers on these subjects. Send 50 cents for each in care of this P 0 Box Radio City Station. New N.Y 10019 Be sure to ask for the booklet of your choice The stomach is coated with a tough thick layer of mucus that protects the cells of the stomach lining from the acid pepsin juice It likewise protects the stomach from a lot of things we eat I that one danger concerning meat tenderizers can be forgotten If you are worried about the adverse effects of any tendenzer. you can always tenderize meat by marinating it Soaking it in vinegar or wine softens the tough connective tissue and makes it tender Grinding meat round steak to make also breaks up the tough fibers Neither wine nor vinegar will hurt you if used to tenderize meat before cooking it Any alcohol present will be destroyed in the cooking process You can marinate any meat or poultry. the longer a meat is cooked at low the more tender it will become. The persistent low heat will break down the tough fibers and do the job for you.

If you think about you realize that there must be a basic unit to measure another to measure weight and another to measure volume. It seems that each early civilization came to this same basic conclusion. until fairly recent each country selected its own particular basic measuring units. Canada and the American Colonies inherited their basic units from the British imperial gallon and pound. These were complicated by a hodgepodge of feet and rods and fathoms and many other odd units. Portuguese and many other countries introduced a multitude of still more measuring units As far as the North Americans made their measurements correspond with the British imperial basics in a quiet several French thinkers came up with a sensible solution to the problem. In the year Gabriel the vicar of Samt Paul's church at suggested a more logical method of measuring. It was based entirely on the decimal system of tens. His basic unit was the meter. Its proposed length was based on a tiny fraction of arc of a great circle of the earth. In those this geographical concept was a stroke of genius A great of has 360 degrees Each degree has 60 minute degrees and each minute unit has 60 second units. Other French scholars helped to perfect the idea and in a geodetic survey was made to measure a precise arc between France and a point near Barcelona in Spain. This elaborate groundwork gave the meter on which the original metric system was based. And the whole idea was all the way Word additions were invented to partition and to extend it and these same additions were to name the metric units of weight and volume The tedious task progressed through the years. And in the original metric system was presented to the French National Assembly by the Paris Academy of Sciences. Though the basic system was admired by many thinkers around the nobody was completely satisfied Eventually this led to the establishment of the International' Bureau of Weights and Measures For this the French donated a site at a suburb of Paris. From time to there have been revisions to make the basic units more precise and possible improvements will be made in the future. But the original French metric based on its neat remains more or less the same. Mktd by ehil- drtn of Herald readers be mailed to Ask P.O. Bex. Huntlngton California 92648. Chronicle Publishing Co.
