Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETH8RIDGE HERALD Tutidoy, Novrmber 21, 1972 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON WEDNliSUAY, NOV. 2Z Your birthday today: The Sun leaves Scorpio, enters Sagittarius at 9 minutes af- ter midnight.

What would cause a stillbirth? lir. l.amb When a 25-year-old girl with a normal healthy record became preg- nant iier blood pressure rose. Eventually she gave pema- ture birth to a stillborn child which was pronounced dead eight hours prio- to delivery. Now, two months later she is pronounced "healthy and nor- mal." What [actors might have caused this irregular prenatal condilJmi as well as Ihe death of Ihe child? Header Pregnancies redly aren't such simple mat- ters and are a number of things that can go wrong. The most likely cause of the lyne of problem you describe is "toxe- mia of pregnancy." For some reason (lie mother develops a toxic reaction to the changes of pregnancy and all of the com- plicated mechanisms that are involved in this are not under- stood. Typically tiie blood pressure docs rite sharply and the moth- er will start gaining excessive weight, usually because cf re- Ir-nticn of fluid. Characteristic- ally, after delivery the bleed pressure returns to normal and the1 woman's health is normal spain. The possibility of toxe- mia of pregnancy is why obste- tricians make such a great ef- fort to have their expectant mothers keep their weight down and restrict their salt intake. The general belief is that if a woman starts gaining weight rapidly in pregnancy and re- taining fluid she is much more likely to develop this type at response. Toxemia of pregnancy can also be responsible for the death of the baby. It seems to be a metabolic response of some type. It is not a con- tagions or infectious disease. Deai- Dr. Lamb Is it true that medical science has shown that people should have five to six hours between meals? I have read that anything re- maining in the stomach six hours after a lest meal was thought to be abnormal. Is it also true that eating between meals insults the human mecha- nism and has much to do with the efficiency of the mind and body? Dear Reader No, it is not necessary to have a five U> six hour interval between meals. In fact, in certain medical con- ditions where small meals are recommended, patients are of- ten advised to have five or six small meals a "day. Eating be- tween meals isn't any problem unless one wants to control his calorie Intake. Then the addi- tional calories associated with Slacking can become impor- tant. What one eats has a great deal to do with how fast the stomach empties. Liquids go straight through the stomach usually, particularly if they are at room temperature or warm. Foods that are principaDv car- bohydates or sugar will be processed more -apidly and eliminated from the stomach. Protein foods are eliminated less rapidly and fat foods may stay in the stomach longer than hours undergoing their ini- tial digestion process. Cold foods slow down the movement of the stomach and may cause food to stay in the stomach longer. It follows that cold, fat foods are likely to stay there the longest. For ordinary medical diag- nostic studies whsn a person takes a special lest mixture for x-ray studies on an empty stomach, it is expected lhal Ihe stomach will empty onl the lesl meal well bsfore six hours. ful in today's probable involve- mcnl group neighbor- hood affairs.

(1972 By The Chicago Tribune The hopper's skin Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Stu- dents Encyclopedia to Sheik' Hansen, age 12, of Spokane, Washington, for her ques- tion: Do grasshoppers shed Ihcir skins? Yes. they do. and if you keep GOREN ON BRIDGE pet grasshopper you may watch this amazing operation pa'haps six times during his lifetime. One summer's day, Andy saw a ghostly pale grass- hopper on a juniper bough. He did not leap away, as he usual- ly would. In fact, he looked too done in to move at all. Near him on the bough was the skin he had just shed, After half an hour in the sun, he turned the proper grasshop- per color, regained his pep and bounded on his way. The grasshopper's skin is a crisp exoskeleton. It holds lu's soft internal organs in shape but it is too stiff to itrctch es grows. All insects have this I prcb'em and many solve it by growing through caterpillar and pupa stages. The grass hopper and about othe insects of his group do not re- model them selves throng these stages of life. The infanl that hatch from the eggs ar wingless little conies of Uie adult parents, encased in slit exoskelelons. As they grow I'hey molt their tight skins to larger ones. Er.'omologists, who study in sects, naturally have a for this type of growth. The call it incomplete phosis. The butterflies remode themselves through four quit different stages. Their growt style is called complete meta mornhosis. The grasshopce- haleh from as do all in 'els.
