Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 TNI IfTHMIDCf HWAID _ II, YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON THURSDAY, OCT. 29 Your birthday today. Ded- ication to spiritual growth is your highest course in your corning year. In material and social matters .your progress is relatively good with nor- mal effort. Emotional expe- rience now depends and blends with a, growing sense of universal truths. The men among today's natjves are quite definite in their opin- ions, apt to be aggressive, stoic, thrifty. The women us- ually prefer to stay out of public view, work from be- hind the scenes, but are just as resolute. ARIES (March 21-ApriI Although this is not a favor- able time for starting new ma- terial much can be done in planning, looking over future trends. The evening is for home life. TAURUS (April 2 t- May Bring assistants, collaborators closer to you; press tactfully to get something done, but expect no great ambitious drive in anybody. Use any extra rest fully. GEMINI (May 21 June You have better opportunity to push uncompleted matters but also the temptation to scatter energy. Avoid beginning major new projects. Dispose of what- ever has outlived its useful- ness. CANCER (June 21 July 22) It is much easier now to let g of an old habit, give up any thing not rightfully yours. Ten sions abate so that you musl exert yourself just to stay on the job. LEO (Jnly 23 Aug. Straighten out old questions- bring delayed negotiations to settlement. Family affairs gen- erate news, much discussion. Take extra pauses for reflec- Sept. tion. VIRGO (Aug. 23 LAWRENCETE. LAMB, M. D Self-Control Can Lick Heart Irregularities Dear Doctor I Have been Informed I have a left branch bundle block for which there is no cure or treatment, and de- pending upon when the condi- tion developed would determine how much longer I had to rgo. Dear Reader You may have a long time to go. I knew one dentist who had this prob- lem for over 24 years and was still in good health. I have also seen a number of apparently healthy men in the Air Force flying crews who had this prob- lem. Many of them continued to lead active normal lives in the subsequent years. Left bundle branch block is an abnormal finding in the elec- trical heart tracing (electrocar- diogram or Normally, the right and left side of the heart's muscular pumping chambers are electrically stim- ulated at the same tune. This is accpmp 1 i s h e d by special nervelike tissue which we call the right and left bundles. When the electrical stimula- tion to the left side of the heart is delayed, it can cause "left bundle branch block." The left side of the heart still pumps as strongly as ever, although its pumping a c t i o n is sometimes delayed about .04-second. The only importance of the finding is what caused it Some people develop left bundle branch block because of a pre- vious inflammation of the heart as that occurring when the heart is involved in rheu- matic fever. One healthy young man I saw with this problem developed it from childhow diphtheria. Left bundle branch block may be caused1 by atherosclerosis or fatty deposits in the arteries of the heart or even a heart at- tack. Even after a heart attack you may still lead an active life if you have a good recovery. Look at former President John- son who had a heart attack in 1955, over 15 years ago. You can't judge how well a person is going to be from an electrocardiogram. You have to look at the whole patient. If left bundle branch block is part of an over all picture of se- vere heart disease, then the out- look may not be so good. If it is found in a-young, healthy, vigorous individual it may not mean much. If the cause of the condition is not known, a safe and wise approach would be to follow good living habits. If you smoke, stop. Limit your coffee :o two cups a day or less. Ad- just your diet along the lines recommended to prevent heart disease. Get rid of any excess fat. Start a proper exerc i s e program GRADUALLY if you don't get enough activity, ind that is good advice even f you don't have left bundle branch block. With a good plo- gram you might live to bury your doctor. Dear Doctor If I have the male sterilization operation, can my wife still get pregnant? Dear Reader Probably, but t is unlikely that you will be he father. Proceed vigorously with men- tal activity. Take regular inter- vals of rest. Many small chores done well now need no further attention. New projects should wait. LIBRA (Sept. 23 Oct. If you make no spectacular move today, chances are you'll have no accounting to make later. Shape your plans with a degree of balance between your different activities. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. Now you can press forward with a project which might in other moments attract emo- tional resistance. Be consider- ate and calm but get busy ear- ly- SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. You might use organized community institutions or learn something new about them. New problems seem unlikely; try, however, to resolve old is- sues. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 Jan. Give your enterprises a chance to demonstrate how well you've organized them. Gather friends for an evening of fun and lively talk. You'll learn something. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 Feb. Withdraw a trifle now to get a broader perspective on your recent efforts, find a few weak spots or failures. Begin planning corrections for later ise. PISCES (Feb. 19-March Uncompleted matters may seem beyond ready solution this morning, but continued at- tention brings rather good pro- gress by evening.

Quantities of streaming water are needed to transform these basic ingre- dients into living biological mi- racles. These miniature miracles, of course, are trillions of living cells, working together in ela- borate systems to keep all the body's operations in balance. Water is necessary to carry on the complex electrochemical activities of every cell. Hence, water is the major component of cytoplasm, the jellified sub- stance of cell, tissue. Cells as- signed to special duties in- volving electrical impulses con- tain more than the average quota and brain cells are very watery. Bones are built from calcium, and other sturdy materials. But microscopic analysis reveals that they are delicate openwork structures. And chemical analysis reveals that 35 per cent to 50 per cent of the bony human skeleton is actually composed of water. All this cellular moisture is used to create an enormous variety of precisely balanced chemical solutions. It suspends microscopic particles and seeps them mobile and avail- able for cellular activity. The water in the body also provides Ihe major transportation cir- cuits that link all its systems The pale, liquid ymph seeps through the cell issue, bearing essential nu- rients and carrying away waste materials. The blood is, a _ stream of water crowded j with an assortment of special cells, floating in a solution of precisely balanced chemicals, t transports oxygen fuel and waste carbon dioxide between he lungs and the living cells. The body keeps all its water working day and night and the upply needs constant replen- shing. The lungs breath out moisture through the nose and iiouth, the skin perspires more iquid, and quantities of water lush waste materials out (trough the kidneys. Every day we need to take to about two juarts to replace the loss and naintain the body's 65 per cent o 70 per cent, water content. We drink much of our daily supply as plain water or i n lilk and other liquids which re mostly water. But a sur- rising amount comes from the ood we eat. A slice of bread 35 per cent water; an egg is 0 per cent water. The water ontent in a potato is 80 per ent. Lettuce and cabbage are fl per cent water and 95 per ent of a juicy tomato is ac- ually water.
