Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 LETHBRIDGE HERALD May 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I am not a Dhysician or a member of the but I do have a right to Tiy personal opinions I feel the AMA and the FDA are working together to bar the God-given right of any individual the use of vitamins to supplement the lifeless food now pushed down the throats of the consumer. I feel the use of natural vitamins in high dosage which you people say is harmful is as opposed to the synethetic ones the AMA and the FDA take into consideration. I am led to believe the AMA will not be satisfied until it can get all vitamins under prescription to get their cut of the business and to keep people from staying healthy by taking natural vitamin supplements if they choose to do so Dear Reader you are entitled to your even if it is based on misinformation. Your views represent a segment of the public who do not really understand vitamins and are often victimized by commercial interests The recommendations for the amount of vitamins we should get are not set by the AMA or the your first bit of misinformation they are set by the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Science's National Research Council supported by the federal government This organization has nothing to do with the direct fee for service practice of medicine So you are very far off the truth Their main goal is to set standards to ensure the good health of the public and to protect the public from unfair and often untruthful promotion Your attitude represents a sort of widespread paranoia about the medical which all too often is based on ignorance That is what makes people like you an easy mark for the propaganda of profit making commercial interests The AMA and the FDA are not against people having vitamins another misrepresentation One of the first acts of the FDA was to be sure that vitamin preparations in contain the needed amounts of vitamins and not substandard amounts that mislead the public. Doctors and the FDA are all for people getting natural vitamins and because the best natural vitamins are in good wholesome it is usually recommended that the best way to get these is by eating a proper diet instead of pill- popping or paying through the nose for so-called natural vitamins promoted by commercial interests In those cases where a person cannot get sufficient vitamins in their then vitamin supplements are commonly recommended Under periods of for example during it is common for doctors to recommend vitamins and minerals. are wrong about natural vitamins not being harmful in large as opposed to synthetic vitamins. Let me give you a classic example The polar bear liver is loaded with vitamin just about as natural a source of vitamin A as you can get. So is the halibut liver If you eat much of either you can get deathly ill and can even die from the effects Many such cases are well documented Excessive amounts of either vitamin A or D can have adverse effects. The excessive D can cause dissolving of the bones and other problems perhaps you should consider these points and start asking yourself why you are so hostile to groups that are trying to help you and protect your health from crass commercial interests That is the significant question Flashback Queen Victoria gave royal assent to the British North America Act 107 years ago today in 1867 and Canada became the first dominion of the British Empire the following July 1. The BNA Act was periodically amended in on Canada's to clarify Dominion-provincial alter representation in and so forth 1819 The first steamship to cross the the left for Liverpool where it arrived June 20 Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H.

After cashing the ace-king of he could play three rounds of discarding a low club On the fourth diamond he would discard his remaining low club as the defender with the high trump and the only losers would be two hearts and a trump But those odds were still not good enough for declar- er.

Ask Andy ROCK MELTING Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Shawn age of for his question Is it possible to melt Yes this is possible. In rock melting goes on all the time. People do a lot of it. The earth does even more and some even happens in the air above our heads And astronomers suspect that a little rock melting ruined the tail of the comet Kohoutek. It is thought that the heat of the sun coated the comet with molten material that prevented streams of gaseous particles from escaping the earth's rocks do not melt at everyday t' not even in the id tropics. This is because i earth's surface is cool enough to freeze them solid. At high the rocky minerals melt and become thick molten hotter than hot. At still higher they may turn to fumes and steamy gases We are told that our entire world is built from about 100 chemical elements. The basic atoms of each element are all alike In the earth's gold and a few other elements occur in almost pure nuggets and nodules Chemical compounds are made of molecules that are packages of assorted atoms. Almost all of the earth's rocky crust is made up of about different mineral compounds The average rock sample is a mixture of several mineral compounds Each rocky mineral has its own melting temperature For tin melts when it gets more than twice as hot as boiling water. The melting point of silicon is almost five times as hot as molten tin Since most rocks are mixtures of several the ingredients melt and separate at different temperatures. As the molten mixture the minerals also freeze solid at different temperatures. The most dramatic rock melting goes on down inside the earth. The average thickness of the earth's rocky crust is about 40 miles. It is somewhat like a shattered into about six major and many smaller sections called plates. Where two plates rub pockets of molten rock called magma may form deep below the surface. Now and mysterious stresses cause the magma to erupt in rivers of lava and fiery clouds of gases. On the the molten lava soon cools to form granites and other igneous rocks. We are told that the infant earth was a mass of molten material. As it its lighter materials formed the solid crust The Bronze Age of human history began when people made tools and weapons of bronze. This alloy of copper and tin must be or in furnaces that are four or five times hotter than boiling water Our major metals are iron and steel so we live in the Iron Age And some of our blast furnaces reach temperatures of degrees Fahrenheit t Meantime the spaceways of the Solar Systems are populated with large and small meteors made from planetary materials Every thousands of them collide with the earth. As the average meteor falls through the it generates heat like a match striking sandpaper. The fiery heat from its molten minerals looks for all the world like a falling star.
