Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 9 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I have very high cholesterol in spite of a fat-free diet. I also take Choloxin twice a day. Is it safe for me to eat food made from coconut I have in mind some crackers with coconut oil. As I work long hours and weigh only 110 I feel I need extra energy and strength Due to I supplement my diet protein powder and Tiger's Milk almost every day. Is Mther one of these mdesirable for me9 Dear Reader It is true lat some people who are not verweight still have a high holesterol level. In these istances it is important to mit the and particularly he saturated fat and holesterol in the diet oconut oil is mostly a aturated fat so you should void ii and any products lade with coconut oil. That often include a variety of products with listed as an ingredient. otten this means coconut You will find it in cake iake in coffee instant breakfast seasoning for vegetables and many food products The only milk products you should be using are those low in fat butter fat is high in saturated fat use skim low fat cottage nonfat dry milk powder or a milk such as the milk products for babies who are allergic to milk Most of the protein powders are low in fat and can be used You need to read the label to see what per cent of fat is in the products For an energy lift don't forget the value of good fresh fruit juices. Fresh fruit such as a banana or an orange is also .good. People would be much better off if they would learn to snack on fresh fruits rather than the things most of them use. For more information about cholesterol write to me in care of this P.O. Box Radio City New N. Y. and ask for the booklet on cholesterol Send 30 cents to cover costs. And a word about your medicines. Choloxin is a form of thyroid medicine and is used to lower cholesterol level. Just recently a new Questran has become available It may be more effective. It binds the bile salts and eliminates them through the bowel. This in turn leads to the elimination of cholesterol because bile salts are made from cholesterol. It is reported to be very effective in combination with a proper diet. You might check with your doctor and see if he would like to try you on this medication Dr. Lamb welcomes questions from his but because of the volume of mail he cannot answer personally. Questions of general interest will be discussed in future columns. Write to Dr. Lamb in care of this P.O. Box Radio City New N.Y. 10019.

Personal plans survive the may even increase in merit The Chicago Tribune Ask Andy SOLAR WINDS Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Larry age of North for his question What exactly is the solar Our starry sun is big enough to engulf one and one third million earth-sized planets. It contains 99 8 per cent of all the material in the Solar System and its seething core is 100 times denser than water It is a raging nuclear furnace that converts four billion tons of matter into energy every day and night Fortunately the planet earth is placed at a nice safe distance from these fierce outpourings of solar energy The so-called solar wind is an outpouring of gaseous particles from the sun's seething surface We speak of solar storms and solar though they hardly are related to the breezy weather events that blow around in the earth's atmosphere. Our atmosphere works with enormous masses of dense air. In its lower the concentration of gaseous molecules amounts to about one billion-billion to the cubic centimeter. The solar on the contains about five particles per cubic centimeter exposure to an earthy gale may be safer than exposure to the solar wind There are two main reasons why The solar wind is made of electrically charged particles and they travel at penetrating speeds The solar wind slows down somewhat as it gets farther from the but even at a distance of 93 million miles it whizzes past the earth at an average speed of about 300 miles per second. The surfs nuclear energy surges continuously outward in all directions It is estimated that this never- ceasing output equals about 390 sextillion which is 390 plus 21 zeros. About one two-billionths of the total output reaches our upper atmosphere and almost half of this reaches the surface of the earth In 40 our small helping of the total solar energy equals all the electrical power that modern mankind uses in a whole year These and other basic facts led scientists to suspect that the sun's outpouring energy must carry along streams of particles from the solar surface This was proved in when the Manner II space probe took measurements in and above our upper atmosphere. At that the particles streaming constantly from the sun were called the solar wind And later evidence revealed that this so-called solar wind streams on and throughout the solar system and possibly beyond Nobody was surprised to learn that in the earth's neighborhood the solar wind's average speed is somewhat faster than a million miles per hour After its tiny particles jare launched by the fantastiC energies of the seething sun Nobody was surprised to learn that solar wind particles are electrically charged mostly protons and electrons plus a few helium nuclei Normal atoms naturally would be stripped to ions in the sun's heat. the planet Earth has a built-in defense against this solar bombardment.
