Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta UTHMIDOI HIRAtD Mqy 29, 1973 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON WEDNESDAY, MAY 30 Your birthday today: Getting to fundamentals is your goal for a new start in life, retaining all past achievements. Your desires turn out to be something else. Today's natives combine thrift with a readiness to as- sume responsibility, and have LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Rectal check recommended Dear Dr. Lamb I would is definitely indicated. like your advice on two ques- tions. How important and neces- sary are proctoscope examina- tions say done on a routine physical even though there are no bowel or rectal problems? I am a 47 year old female who has an exam yearly and also a rectal examination done at this time, along with a female ex- amination. I have heard pros and cons on this It is a expense that makes me won- der how important this is. Also, since I find myself al- lergic to wheat germ oil and my doctor says vitamin E is all right to take, what can I use? Is a synthetic vitamin E just as good7 What are your thoughts on vitamin E. Dear Reader There is a sufficient likelihood of having significant disease in the rec- tum and colon area that no medical examination is com- plete without at least a rectal examination by finger. A large number of cancers of the rec- tum are within reach of the physician's examining finger. If they are detected early, they can usually be cured. If they are not detected sufficiently early, the outcome is less op- timistic. Whether or not one needs to then use the proctosigmoido- scope tube and examine also the lower part of the colon, is a matter of opinion. Certainly in individuals past 45 I think they should have one relatively frequently. Of course, if there is any history of bowel prob- lems then such an examination If money and the time of both the doctor and the patient were no object, why then I would say that all adults prob- ably should have such an ex- amination. The number of peo- ple in the younger age groups who would be found with signifi- cant problems would be small, bet if you're doing a complete examination you want to find even those small numbers of in- dividuals who have problems. We did require all of the candidates for the Astronaut Program to have such an ex- amination. A number of these young men were found to have polyps, which were removed All 'of these individuals were 35 years of age or younger. With the increased likelihood of having cancer or other prob- lems with increasing age yoi have to decide whether the yield is worth the effort both in the patient's and the doc tor's point of view. No doubt a number of doctors feel that one should be done for ever) one on each examination past age 40. Others might choose 45 and some 50, but all knowledge- able doctors would agree that a plain, simple rectal examina- tion (which shouldn't cost should be part of any regular complete examination. Most people get enough vita- min E from vegetables, cer eals and an infinite variety of foods. In most cases, vitamin E in moderate amounts, "won'1 do you any good, won't do you any harm This applies equal- ly well to natural or synthetic vitamin E. an eye for precise details.

As a rule, a great deal of lamage is done to the wooden ramework of a house before anybody suspects that ter- mites or ants are at work.

The whole house may ha e to be sealed in a great plastic bag and fumigat- ed. When termdtes and their nests are destroyed, it is nec- essary to plug all the exits to their tunnels.

The birds we call doves and pigeons are so alike that they are classed in the same family. Some species are a little larger. Some are pampered pets, some are half-tame ard others live freely in the wild. All of them are descended from the wild rock dove. So strictly speaking, all of them are doves. However, in everyday language we call some of them doves and some pigeons. Most larger members of the Colbi- dae family are called pigeons. Usually the smaller white spe- cies are called doves. The larger type includes the half-tame city pigeon, the tamo homing pigeon and sev- eral wild wood pigeons How- ever, one fairly large wild spe- cies is called the mourning dove, alias the turtle dove. Most of the tame white types are called doves. Then, of course, there is that magical bird call- ed the Dove of Peace. Who knows, maybe if we called him the Peace Pigeon he just might come down to earth. Questions asked by children Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O. Box 765.
