At my last check tip I asked doctor about tliis question and he asked if I was on any medicine and I told him no, I don't want to take hormones. Then he snapped "Well then I just won't tell you." He's tried lo get me to lake hormones for several years but I have a great fear of cancer and don't know enough to argue with this doctor who I feel is very com- petent otherwise. My fears may be groundless but I am still afraid of the medicine. I thought if he would just toil me that these hot flashes would last just a few months more I could tough it out. and then it would be all They are really bad at You By THE CANADIAN PRESS Oct. 4, 1972 The first air mail service In Canada was inaugurated 45 years ago 1927.

The court dismissed an appei by Jagmohan Singh, convictec of murdering an acquaintance because of a grudge.

I'm 52, and lad my last period about a ago and have been hav- the flashes about a year also. Dear Reader The duration of hot flashes varies. Some vomen are not bothered notice- ably by them, others have hem only a few months and others experience them for a year or longer. It's unpredic- table. There has long been concern lhat the use of female hor- mones could cause cancer. The evidence that this Is rather meager. The problem Is that lols of women develop can- cer of Ihe breast and female organs anyway and would do so even if they weren't given additional female hormones. In recent studies, there Is some evidence to suggest tha the women on female hormones are less likely to develop cancer of the breast than tliose who nre nol. Some of the old "sac- red cows" on this ides are under attack wilh well designed research studies question i 11 g some of the previously readily accepted ideas. Similarly, there is some evidence now that the reason women smokers don't develop cancer of the lungs as is commonly noted in men, is because female hormones pro- tect the lungs. Neither of these studies, however, have any re. lallonship to the use of hor- mones in womeo who already have cancer. So the subject is still wide open but lots of wo- men use female hormones and don't have any subsequent dif- ficulties because of the bor- mones. Incidentally the dosage used to help women through menopause is usually relatively small. Now TUMBlEWEEDS-By Tom K, Ryan All BYES ARE UPON YOU, UMPIP LIZARD GC FORTH TO MEETTHE FOE! FIGHT! WIN!
