T has 1n up diamond and mmc home wi! n Ttrirk Dear Dr. Lamb You men- tioned in your column that fat- ty accumulations in the arteries, are reversible Could please tell me how this is Dear Reader The fatty particles in the bloodstream with cholesterol literally move through the artery wall They stick in the wall and cause the deposits Part or all of the deposits will be removed, in many cases, if the amount of fatty particles and cholesterol in the bloodstream is sufficiently low To lower the fatty cholesterol particles in the blood you need to be on a diet that does not contain excess calories and either prevents or eliminates obesity The diet should be low in fat. low in saturated fat. and low in cholesterol. The reversibility of fatty deposits in the arteries has been demonstrated in animals under strict experimental control The monkev was used for one of the best ex- periments because he is more like the human The monkeys developed fatty cholesterol deposits in the arteries when they were on a rich diet, and the fatty deposits were not present after monkeys were put back on a less rich monkey diet The same thing has been demonstrated in people. The problems associated with fat- ty cholesterol depo .its in the arteries, heart disease, decreased or almost disappeared from European populations of Wr rid War II There are int umerable studies showing this relationship For more information about cholesterol, triglvcerides, and blood fats as related to artery and heart disease, write to me at P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station. New York, N.Y. 10019 and ask for the booklet on cholesterol Send 50 cents to cover costs.

US OUT TO I ve been chewing more than a pack of gum a day and each time I chew a piece I'm lucky if it lasts more than 10 minutes My problem is I have this habit of swallowing my gum. sometimes bit by bit and sometimes the whole piece at once It isn't accidental it's just a habit Some of my friends told me it takes seven years to digest M v mom thinks it might be an unhealthy thing to do. and now it's got me worried Any ad- vice or help would be much appreciated Dear Reader If swallow- ing gum is the worst thing you ever swallow, you will be lucky indeed No. it will not take seven to digest It will not harm you even though I must admit that I don't really think it is a good idea All undigested material passes through the digestive system and is usually eliminated in 48 hours I'm more concerned about tht effects of constant gum rhrwing on teeth You might ask vour dentist what he thinks about it HAGAR THE HORRIBLE 1 PlPNT H1 A TO CAME FROM BEETLE BAILEY COMSAT EMPLACEMENT WHAT? 5 HO IF KlE'P JUST LfARN ARMY TEKMlNOl-Oey, uee IT A LOT LI'L ABNER TUMBLEWEEDS MeR TH' <3ME TAt- EC- LIKE f ;
