Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday. November 11, 1974 iHE LtiHBRIDGE HERALD 5 Ask Andy BUTTERFLIES Andy sends a complete 20 volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Elizabeth Murphy, age 12, of South Portland, Me., for her question: What is the life expectancy of a butterfly? When a beauteous butterfly emerges from a pupa, she has reached the fourth and final stage of her fantastic life cycle. Her one and only pur- pose is to mate and lay eggs for the next generation of her species Usually this is com- pleted in a week or so, after which she either dies or is eaten. However, a few species manage to survive the winter, and recent research suggests how they manage to escape their famished foes. About insects belong in the glamorous order of moths and butterflies. Each species starts life as an egg that becomes a hungry cater- pillar that becomes a pupa and hatches into an adult winged insect The basic life story is the same, though each species has a somewhat different story to tell. The gorgeous adult butterflies attract a lot of attention. Most of them are soon caught and eaten by birds, bats, hornets and numerous other famished foes. Maybe this is why nature crowds this adult phase of life into just a few days or weeks. However, some species es- cape their enemies and live to welcome the following spring We know that certain butterflies live longer because their bodies contain unfriend- ly chemicals. Some dis- courage their hungry enemies with horrible smells and flavors. Others contain poisonous cyanides, acids or alkaloids. For example, the handsome orange brown monarch butterflies migrate to warmer winter climates and return in the spring When a sassy blue jay decides to eat one of them, he has a violent attack of upchucking and learns never to touch another. It so happens that two monarchs contain enough poison to stop the heart of a starling. We need a lot more research on the life spans of the numerous different butterflies. Possibly the average winged adult must crowd her final stage into a couple of weeks because she tastes so good to her famished foes Other species may be able to live longer because they contain repulsive or even deadly substances. In any case, most of the adult butterflies around South Portland, Me., have life ex- pectancies of a few days or a couple of weeks. By now they have departed from the scene, or so it seems Actually the handsome morning cloak is hibernating in some woodsy crevice. She will survive until spring, and on a sunny winter day you may spy her large, dark wings as she flutters forth for an airing. QuMtlont asktd by chil- dren of should mailed to Andy, P.O.

Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I would appreciate any information you can give me concerning the use of estrogen for menopausal symptoms. Eight years ago 1 had a complete hysterectomy. For the past seven years I have been taking Premann for hot flashes I am 53. Several times I have discontinued the Premann to see if I would still have the flashes, which I did. Lately I have been concerned by articles which stated that estrogens might cause problems I asked my doctor about this, but he is always in a hurry and never gives me a very complete answer He said it was all right probably, if I periodic exams I am now so confused over it that I have stopped taking the Premarin for several months. I would rather endure the flashes than take any chances The references to estrogen are always in connection with birth control pills. Is this the same type of estrogen as in Premann7 Also, when I am taking Premarin I constantly have sore breasts. Is this of any significance? Dear Reader There is a basic difference in a woman having menopausal problems and a woman who is still in the midst of her childbearing years. The menopause is associated with a decreased formation of female hormones. Giving this woman hormones is in the nature of a replacement of normal function or at least a partial replacement, depending on the hormones given and the amount. The woman in her childbearing years still has normal hormone formation Giving her a birth control pill containing female hormones increases the persistent level of hormones above the level she would have in the non- pregnant state. Note that I said above the level she has in the non-pregnant state During pregnancy there is a marked increase in female hormones which is necessary to maintain the circulation and general environment essential to continuing the pregnancy. There are varied reports on the effects of "the pill" and many of these are not in agreement about its dangers or safety The dangers are clearly not so overwhelming as to provide a clear-cut yes or no answer. Then because of the increased hormone production during pregnancy, well above the effects of the pill, the dangers of pregnancy far outweigh the dangers of all of "the pills Yes, in general the pills used in birth control contain the same or similar hormones to those used in treating the menopause. There are two main female hormones, estrogen and progesterone They have quite different effects. You can vary the ratio of these to each other and the amount As a result, there is no longer "a pill" but many different pills. Because women have different hormonal makeups, one woman may need more estrogen and the next one more progesterone The doctor has to decide which is best on an individual basis. The same problem pertains to pills used to treat menopause symptoms There are different ratios and Fun with figures By J.A.H. Hunter "Not only boys, said Stan. "How many girls do you have in the Alan grinned. "If one of the boys were a girl we'd have twice as many boys as girls "I can't tell t'other from which these Stan chuckled. "But what if one of the girls were a boy9" "Just four times as replied Alan How many girls? Thanks for idea to J. A. Folkins. Vancouver. British Columbia.
