Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE HERALD May 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I am 48 years five feet and weight 135 pounds I have a cholesterol count of about 330 reduced by diet from 395. A recent magazine article said that lecithin reduces the cholesterol in a person's blood Does lecithin really reduce the count as they Thank you for any help you provide. Dear Reader I wish it but it doesn't. The only people who could possibly benefit from lecithin are a few who have a dietary deficiency in polyunsaturated fats You can solve that problem with proper diet that includes about a third of the fat in your diet as polyunsaturated fat as you get in corn safflower oil or products made with these oils. Excess amounts of these oils won't help either There is a lot of untrue promontional material in magazines about lecithin It is another fat The difference is that it contains some phosphate and is a phosophohpid it is connected to cholme Now that is all fairly complex so let me say that the lecithin particle is broken down by the digestive enzymes in the digestive tract into the the fatty and then absorbed. In other once it gets through the intestinal wall it is no longer lecithin. The lecithin in our bloodstream is correlated with cholesterol and there is some evidence that if it is high you will have less tendency to fatty deposits in the arteries and it is a big the lecithin in the blood is manufactured by the liver Its level is influenced by many even the ratio of male and female hormones If you needed cholme in your diet then lecithin would be helpful. This substance helps protect the liver from fatty degeneration that can occur in fasting and other problems many common foods in a normal diet contain abundant amounts of such as lean meats If you needed cholme you should be taking not lecithin or more fat I do think you probably could profit from taking some medicine for your persistent high cholesterol particularly if you have been on a proper diet and have controlled your weight. There is medicine available specifically for lowering the cholesterol in people who can't accomplish this with diet. But it is not lecithin and must be prescribed by a doctor. One such Questran is very new and works by binding the bile salts in the bowel. Since these come from cholesterol this helps to use up the cholesterol and lower the level As more bile salts are formed and then the cholesterol is gradually lowered You might check with your doctor and see if you are a candidate for this new medicine. For more information about cholesterol write to me in care of this 0 Box Radio City New N Y. and ask for the booklet on cholesterol.

Declarer drew two rounds of ending in and led the three of dia- monds. Had East played low it would have been all over West would have been forced to win the jack with the king and declarer's clubs would have been safe from attack. South would have had time to knock out the ace of diamonds and dis- card a club on dummy's fourth diamond. East made a superior defensive play by going up with his ace of dia- monds and shifting to a club Now it was declarer's turn to demonstrate his skill. Had he carelessly covered with the West would have taken the king and continued the and when he gained the lead with the king of dia- monds the defenders would have cashed the setting trick in clubs But declarer real- ized if East held the king of he did not need to take an immediate finesse. Pursuing his original plan of establishing the diamond he rose with the ace of clubs and played the jack of dia- monds to West's king. The defenders were helpless.

And his most dangerous enemy is man His only means of defense is escape This may be one reason why this gentle character shares his life with 20 or so friends and relatives of assorted ages They graze browse together and swim conversing among themselves in clicking high whistles and low grunts. Perhaps for safety's they doze during the day and do their foraging at dawn and dusk. When the region is fraught with many they stay out of sight until darkness falls An adult capybara may be four feet long and stand 21 inches high. Under his brownish gray coat are layers of lightweight fat In the he is so buoyant that he swims with hardly any etfort at all. Even when no jaguars prowl the the capybara cannot stay on land all the time His skin becomes dry and breaks out in sores. His digestion refuses to work and he cannot breed So he has three good reasons to take to the water at least once every day to escape his to eat water weeds and simply to dunk his sensitive skin. Usually he swims with just his ears and nostrils above the surface. When he swims a long way under water and surfaces out of sight among the water weeds. Often his group of gentle friends and relatives graze ihe grasses like cattle. But if one member senses the whole troupe trots to water and disappears with hardly a ripple.
