Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, May 24, 1973 New hope for bronchitis sufferers OTTAWA Results of a 10- year study on chronic bronchitis sponsored by the department oi veterans affairs, give new hope to sufferers from the disease. Researchers however warned bronchitis sufferers of the dan- gers of heavy cigarette smoking as shown in the tests. A total of 216 bronchitis vic- tims who participated in regu- lar check-ups and tests during the survey live in Winnipeg, To- ronto, Montreal and Halifax. Winnipeg was chosen particu- larly "because of its low level of Veterans Affairs Minister D. J. MacDonald said Tuesday. He released the high- lights of the study which was conducted by Dr. David V. Bates, dean of the faculty of medicine of the University of British Columbia. The DVA study of 216 veter- ans of the Second World War provided some answers to the fate of a middle aged man with chronic bronchitis. It has broad- ened "significantly the medical knowledge on this said the minister. BELEASES RESULTS Dr. Bates headed the study team of eight doctors. He re- leased the results of his findings to the American Thoracic Society at its annual meeting in New York City. Dr. Bates is the first Cana- dian to be invited to give the J. Burns Amberson lecture at an annual meeting of this society. "This type of research is not as simple and spectacular as the dramatic discovery of a new wonder Dr. Bates said. "But the results will be of practical value to the general practitioner who deals with the common and growing problem of bronchitis, emphysema and related diseases." The lecture in medical terms related the medical history of the heavy smokers with lengthy coughing during the past ten years. Twenty seven have died since the test began. This is only one more than actuaries would con- Oddities in the News BEND, Ore. (AP) Real- tor Frank Taylor received a cheque for from the First National Bank of Ore- gon. "After I stopped laughing, I wondered what I should do with Taylor said. He de- cided to check up on the cheque. A bank official told him a machine goofed in the process of making out a 59-cent re- fund, owed to Taylor on an in- surance policy. The bank asked him to return the cheque. "Thats what I'm going to Taylor shrugged. "I don't know what else to do with it." CHICOPEE, Mass. (AP) Roger Brassard's actions spoke louder than words. He recently had his larynx re- and early today the bandage fell off. Dust appar- ently was entering Ms throat. The 76-year-old Brassard got on the telephone to police, who eould hear only his Dreathing. Realizing he could- n't talk for some reason, Patrolman Thomas O'Donnell instructed Brassard to tap out his telephone number. Brassard did so and an am- bulance soon came to his aid. ROME, N.Y. (AP) Meat is becoming a precious com- modity, as one restaurant owner was reminded early today. Philip Cataldi said he was roasting a 20-pound piece of top sirloin on a spit but left it unattended for a few minutes. When he returned, he told police, he found that two young customers had dis- appeared with the worth of meat and the spit. Publicize boycott VANCOUVER (CP) The B.C. Federation of Labor will begin placing advertisments in newspapers throughout Western Canada beginning next week to publicize a boycott of Sea- gram's Distillery products, fed- eration secretary Ray Haynes said here. He said the action will be taken in support of 180 distillery workers now in the llth week of a strike at Seagram's plant in New Westminster, B.C. sider normal for a group of that age bracket. Of the total now deceased, only one died of respiratory failure. The balance were recorded as follows: cancer cf the lung, two; cancer, other than lung, four; coronary thrombosis, 10; cerebral throm- bosis, one; accidental, two; sui- cide, one and others two. Not known were four. figures can give new hope to sufferers from chronic bronchitis, in that the tests show that death from this dis- ease alone doss not represent a major hazard, said the minis- ter. "They also show that emphy- sema and chronic bronchitis are not necessarily related. How- ever the study showed that ten per cent of the men being fol- lowed were suffering progres- sive deterioration and that dete- rioration does occur in the ab- sence of the chest infection which these men are prone to the minister added. All men in the group involved in the test had' to be actively engaged in same kind of work. Their occupations were widely varied and were as follows: un- skilled manual, 18; skilled man- ual, 85; clerical, 39; armed services ten and ethers 64. Mr. MacDonald said that through these findings his de- partment is continuing to live up to its responsiblity to veter- ans in giving their physicians information that will help them prevent and head off the con- sequences of these diseases. The general public necessarily benefits from the spin-off of this information. Met manager Schuyler J.
