Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Ask Andy Lit L ULSUWHEKE Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Gavin Van age of New for his question Can there be life on other Some 400 years scholars had to face the fact that our planet revolves around the sun and our Earth is not the center of the Universe Now modern scientists are challenging our minds with an even bigger idea It seems likely that Earth is not the only populated planet in the Universe At the we cannot prove that life exists on other worlds But the evidence that this must be so is overwhelming and growing A few decades many experts insisted that life is possible only on the planet Earth most scientists agree that life can exist and most likely does exist on countless other perhaps also on some of their moons Serious-minded scientists base these conclusions on known facts and figures For we know that the living things ot earth are built mainly from carbon and hydrogen and nitrogen We now know that these and other life-building elements are plentifully strewn through the universe So the basic ingredients are there and everywhere Next we need to find possible places where the miraculous creation of life could occur Such conditions would provide radiation or some other energy for basic elements to form compounds called amino acids For these assorted chemicals must form complex protein molecules And one of these is the blueprint that governs the processes and multiplication of life itself In the it was assumed that such conditions existed only in our unique solar system on the unique planet Earth We know know that other solar systems several quite close to home Our sun is an average star of 100 billion assorted stars in our cart-wheeling Galaxy perhaps billions of similar galaxies are strewn throughout the vast reaches of the universe. There is evidence that perhaps average stars have planetary systems In this there must be billions of earth-type planets in our Galaxy alone the life-making ingredients are everywhere and the number of possible places past counting Surely the miracle of life must have happened again and again When we think of we have to think in terms of the living things of the Earth But earth's inhabitants range from giant whales and redwoods to microscopic organisms that are neither plants nor animals but not need oxygen. Some can endure below freezing temperatures and some are at home in boiling heat. So let's not expect those numerous lively worlds to be inhabited with earth-type forms of life Some scientists estimate that wiser and more advanced civilizations must exist in older parts of our Galaxy Perhaps some have advanced and declined According to these careful at this there must be at least 50 and perhaps as many as 50 million intelligent alien populations not counting the billions of possiblities in other galaxies. It's nice to realize that most likely we are not all alone in the vast universe Questions asked by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O. Box. Huntington California 92648.

I practically starved myself to lose weight and lost 35 pounds in one month I also seemed to have lost my strength Before my first child I was very well solid and fairly strong for a woman I'm only 26 and want to know if I can restore the size of my breasts and gam back my muscle tone Dear Reader You certainly must have starved yourself to have lost that much weight in a month There are calories in a pound of body fat That is far more calories than a normal person with moderate activity uses in a day There are only about 600 calories in lean muscle so you lost muscle as well as fat No wonder you lost strength and developed sagging muscles. This can happen to anyone who insists on going on a semi-starvation diet in many of these diet fads people lose much more than just fat You can rebuild your mus- cles but it will take work Mus- cles grow and gain strength from being put under as in weight you can load the muscle by various forms of including sit-ups and leg lifts for the push-ups and chin-ups for the arms and shoulders and a variety of exercises that cause each muscle to be contracted firmly Just eating including will not restore those muscles It takes both food and physical work. You had strong muscles to begin with because you used them. By losing them from starvation you will now have to work them hard while you are getting enough protein to ever get back the muscle strength you once had Remember neither food nor work alone will do the trick It takes both toegher You will help your breasts some by improving your muscle mass The development of the chest muscles under the breast will decrease the sag some Posture is also important Good posture requires strong muscles in the back and between the shoulders When the chest is held up and the shoulders are properly rather than the breasts are lifted That makes the profile more attractive Part of the size of the breasts is fat If you are the normal fat deposits will melt away leaving the sagging sac of skin so distressing to many women I doubt you will be able to achieve the same breastlme you once but you can certainly improve yourself by correcting the muscle problems that tend to develop from starvation. The obvious lesson here is to prevent such problems Women who gain more weight than they want during pregnancy should not go on any crash diet If it took nine months to put it take nine months to get it off A sensible particularly if you combine it with a good exercise program for the abdomen and for will help you avoid these problems and do a lot to regain your former shape Send your questions to Dr. in care of this P.O.
