Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20-THE LETHBRIDQE November 13, 1974 Drinking water tests planned OTTAWA (CP) The federal health protection branch will do its own investigation of some chlorinated municipal drink- ing water for the presence of possible cancer-causing chemicals, Dr. Emmanuel Somers, acting director of the branch's environmental health directorate, said Tuesday. The proposed investigation follows a United States plan for a national drinking water survey prompted by reports last week that chlorination is producing chlorinated THE DEFENSIVE DRIVING COURSE ADMINISTERED BY THE ALBERTA SAFETY COUNCIL DDC accident prevention for experienced drivers DDC backed by the Insurance Agents Association DDC up to 3 demerit points remitted DDC grads in Canada and the U.S.A.

Dr. Somers stressed that federal health officials do not believe there is cause for alarm. The chemicals chloroform, carbon tetrachloride and: bromodichloromethane were found in such low concentrations in the U.S. drinking water that they are exceedingly unlikely to cause cancer, Dr. Somers said in an interview. However, published reports say a link is possible between the new Orleans drinking wa- ter, drawn from the heavily polluted Mississippi River, and the city's high cancer rate of 25 to 40 per cent above the national average. Dr. Somers said the dis- covery of the chemicals in U.S. water supplies may be due to pecularities in chlorina- tion systems. 1.89 i Sonique Bath Beads VO 5 Shampoo 15.5-oz. VO 5 Creme Rinse 15-02.

Mr. Allmand said in the Commons that police officials oppose the idea on the grounds that it would take too long and findings would be outdated when they were reported. Doctors disagree on operations STONY PLAIN (CP) Disagreement existed at the Stony Plain Municipal Hospital as long as 10 years ago over whether certain operations in which tissue was removed should be per- formed, a provincial inquiry was told Tuesday. Dr. Viljoun Kritzinger said the hospital medical staff could not -agree in February, 1964, whether an operation should have been performed if laboratory analysis indicated the removed tissue was nor- mal. Testimony last week in- dicated Dr. Kritzinger per- formed the majority of the hysterectomies uterus removals recently judged by the Alberta College of Physicians and Surgeons to be unjustified due to lack of pathological evidence of dis- ease. The medical inquiry into the hospital's practices was told Nov. 5 that a surgical audit by the college found there was justification for carrying out only 19 of a total 60 hysterectomies performed at the hospital. Dr. Kritzinger, a central figure in most of the medical and hospital conflicts describ- ed during the inquiry's first five days of public hearings last week, said Tuesday the four doctors then on staff could not agree on whether operations should be perform- ed if there was no pathological evidence of disease. He said an outside, unnam- ed mediator was consulted and added the mediator sup- ported his view that pathological evidence of dis- ease was not the sole justifica- tion for performing an operation. ENTIRE PICTURE "I realized the entire pic- ture had to be Dr. Kritzinger said. The pathological report was "a small part of a large picture" and a patient's over all health, as well as other fac- tors, also had to be con- sidered, he said. The inquiry was told there were no specific complaints in 1964, just a desire by the medical staff to seek advice. "There was no ill feeling about Dr. Kritzinger said. The inquiry and the province's takeover last June of the Stony Plain Municipal Hospital were instigated by reports that dissension among personnel at the 30-bed hospital was presenting a potential danger to patient care. Dr. Kritzinger has testified the conflict did have a detrimental effect on care.
