Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta J6 iHt LEiHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, November 9, 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb My hus- band cannot eat eggs. Is there any way I can fix cakes, rolls and desserts for him without using eggs9 Dear Reader Yes You would be surprised how many recipes turn out just fine by leaving the egg out entirely. Pancakes are a good example Use your favorite recipe but leave the egg out entirely, and you will still have good cakes The same goes for rolls and breads Do some experimenting with standard recipes, and you will soon spot all kinds of ways you can provide breads and desserts without causing your husband any problem I would recommend one of the new low-fat, low- cholesterol egg preparations, but I am afraid your husband may have a problem that would not tolerate these if his problem is something more than just wanting to reduce the cholesterol and fat intake in the diet Incidentally. I have a large number of recipes that con- tain no eggs at all in my book, "What You Need to Know About Food and Cooking for Health" (Viking Press) Ask your local library for the book Dear Dr. Lamb My hus- band has just returned home from the hospital He had an operation for kidney stones and had to have his left kidney removed. He is 38 years old. The doctor tells us not to worry because you only need one healthy kidney to function normally But, I want to know all I can about how I can help my husband keep his kidney healthy and not to get any more stones Can you give me a few suggestions? Dear Reader There is just one practical suggestion that applies to what you and your husband can do Regardless of the type of stone, or its cause, he should be certain to drink at least four quarts of liquid a day This should be spread out over the 24 hours The purpose of the fluid is to be sure he passes lots of urine each day The larger volume will help to dilute the relatively insoluble salts that are part of the stone formation If he perspires a lot or is ex- posed to heat, that might not be enough In that case he will need to increase his fluid in- take even more Although special diets are sometimes used in testing patients with renal stones, most authorities agree there is no need to restrict dairy products to try to avoid stones. There are different types of stones. Some are more likely to form if the urine is too acid and others if the urine is too alkaline. li your doctor knows the type of stones formed, he may want to try medicines that are sometimes used with varying success to prevent new stone formation He may not think that is necessary in your husband's case. Anyone who has a stone needs chemical tests to see if there is an abnormality in calcium metabolism, controll- ed by the little parathyroid glands on each side of the thyroid. kidney infections sometimes contribute to the formation of a stone It is im- portant to treat any sign of a kidney infection promptly All these measures, ex- cept drinking the fluids, are up to your doctor, but drinking adequate fluids is one thing you can do, and it is important regardless of which kind of stone is formed Dear Dr. Lamb Do the things we eat or drink affect our urine? Sometimes it is so clear, sometimes very cloudy. Why' Dear Reader Yes. Just think of urine as the filtered out products that your body doesn t need This does not mean it is toxic or harmful or dirty I you drink more water than you need the excess if filtered out of the blood into the urine. The water in the urine is no different than the rest of the water in the blood Excess minerals are also eliminated A good example here is phosphates. An increased amount of phosphates in the urine increases the cloudiness Phosphates are essential to the body Compounds of phosphates are the main way your energy system works. Excess water soluble vitamins, such as vitamin C, are simply eliminated through the kidney Urea is a compound made by hooking together two ammonia molecules You produce more of that when you eat lots of meat or in general more protein than your body needs Your urine is dark or clear mostly on the basis of phosphates and how much water you eliminate If you fail to drink much water your urine will be much darker People confuse urine with food residue from the bowel. Urine is clean and sterile It is taken directly from your sterile blood. Food waste is contaminated by bacteria and for this reason can be harmful. There is a great difference Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this new- spaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H.

Social encounters turn out impor- tant, exciting Ask Andy TASTE BUDS Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Enecyclopedia to Susan Filsner, age 12, of St Laurent. Que Can for her question Kow do the taste buds work? Sugar is sweet and sea water is salty Baby green apples are sour and often the medicines that do us the most good are bitter These four major tastes are detected by the taste buds and blended in various ways to add hundreds of different flavors to our foods. The little taste buds must be moist to gather their information and send it along through the nervous system to be interpreted by the brain The taste buds are small wads of sensitive cells called receptors. Naturally, they are located inside the mouth, where they can report on each bite of food before we swallow it. Actually the receptors do no more than react to certain chemicals in our foods. The rest is done by the nervous system with final analysis by the brain. The nervous system uses electrochemical energy to flash messages through the body. To do this, the nerve cells and their long connecting threads must be moist at all times The taste buds are at nerve endings and they. too. must be moist in order to relay their reactions to this or that food chemical. As a rule, this is no problem because the inside of the mouth is always damp with saliva. Several groups of taste buds are located on the tongue, others in the cheeks and roof of the mouth Some experts suspect that certain groups specialize in one of four basic flavors sweet or sour, salty or bitter However, many groups seem able to detect blended mixtures The tip of the tongue can report the taste of honey in a split second. Certainly the receptors in this group specialize an sweet flavors Groups along the sides of the tongue report on salty flavors Sour flavors are detected by groups farther back along the sides of the tongue A V-shape group toward the back of the tongue seems to specialize in bitter flavors However, the taste buds in the cheeks and in the roof of the mouth seem able to detect blended flavors. Maybe these groups include some of the four basic flavors. Or maybe some are sensitive enough to detect and blend several tastes into subtle flavors. In any case, the moist taste buds relay their reactions along nerves to the brain Toward the back of the brain, the various flavors are sorted out. These signals are sent to a taste interpretation center near the front of the brain Sensitive smelling cells in the nose add their information to the taste bud reports that go to the brain There all this information is sorted, blended and interpreted to give us hundreds of different flavors.
