Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 28-THE LETHBRIDOE October 30, 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb Could you please tell me what nerves have to do in causing a colon condition and if nerves can be the only cause? How serious is it. if-the colon should per- forate? Could this also cause an abscess on the colon and liver? Dear Reader There is a network of nerve fibers that penetrate the wall. of the colon. These little nerves stimulate the muscle in the wall of the colon to contract or relax. They affect the blood flow to the colon by constricting or relaxing the blood vessels and they affect the amount of secretions or mucus formed in .the colon. The nerves function on their own without your conscious control. The network is hook- ed up to the hypothalamus in your brain which is the seat of your emotions. Depending upon what emotion you are ex- periencing, the colon will be engorged with blood or literal- ly blush, or the blood will be drained out of it, making it pale. If your colon were'readily visible to other people you would have a hard time concealing your emotions. It follows that anxiety and nervous states can send im- pulses to the colon that can cause overcohtraction or spasm of colon muscles or form excess mucus and otherwise affect its function. Depending on the balance of factors, this can result in diarrhea, constipation, or spastic colon. Now, nervous states are not the only thing, though, that can cause dysfunction of the colon. Various diseases of the colon itself can cause dys- function. These include dis- eases such as food poisoning or even a-tumor of the colon. The function of the colon is also affected by what you eat and drink. Some people do not tolerate coffee very well-at all, and it can affect the func- tion of the colon. Various flavor oils can irritate the colon as can spices such as garlic.' If you eat food that contains no bulk, the colon may not have enough undigested fiber material to work against and it will over-contract or go into spasm. That is one reason why you need roughage in your diet, specifically bulky vegetables and cereals-. The colon won't perforate from nerves alone. You usual- ly have to have had small pocket-like formations of diverticula formed first. .These can rupture, and the effect may be much like a rup- tured appendix, though usual- ly on the left side. And like a ruptured appendix, if the per- foration is large and permits bacteria from the colon to be seeded in the abdomen, it could cause a liver abscess or abscesses elsewhere in the ab- domen. Dear Dr. Lamb Do the fats and oils in pecans, almonds, and avocados cause cholesterol to build up in the body? Dear Reader None of these contain .cholesterol. However, too many calories of any foods, and particularly fats, apparehtly stimulate the formation of excess fatty par- ticles and cholesterol in the body in most people. If you stay lean and don't eat too many of these foods, they are fine. All three of these items are high in fat content, even though they- contain no cholesterol.

For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on spastic colon, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Spastic Colon" booklet. Goren on Bridge BY CHARLES H. GOREN AND OMAR SHARIF 1174.

For the most part, con- tract bridge is a relatively simple is the play- ers who make it complicated. Instead of taking the easy way to set the contract. East posed a problem for his partner, with the result that declarer scored a game that should have been defeated. North's opening bid of Ihree clubs does not have the unqualified admiration of this department, though at this vulnerability and with such a good suit, this type of preempt .is not unreasonable. No fault can be found with decision to convert to three no trump, and the final contract was a sound undertaking. Faced with a choice of major suits to lead.

East's king won the first trick, and the return of the deuce was taken by declarer's, ace- De- clarer ran the nine of. clubs to the king, and East re- turned the three of spades, allowing .the defenders to score two spade tricks to complete the defensive book. Unfortunately, this strad- dled West with the lead, and he didn't -know which red suit to attack. He chose to exit "safely" with the jack of hearts and East.went to bed with his two diamond tricks. East maintained that his lead of the three of spades on the third round of the .suit, rather than the five, was a suit preference signal for he wanted a heart led, he would first have played the five and then the three. In top flight circles he might have had a valid point. However, I fault East fully for not defeating the contract. At rubber bridge, an extra 50 points does not make much of a difference one way or the main ob- ject is to defeat the contract. East should have reasoned that, after declarer held up the ace of spades at trick one. West became marked with both, the queen and jack. Thus, East could count five tricks for the defense if he simply cashed the ace of diamonds after winning the king of rlubs and before re- turning another spade. That would have slopped the opponents from becoming vulnerable and at the same time would have struck a blow for partnership con- fidence by relieving partner of a difficult decision. silent partners and other con- fidential supporters.

BROTHER IS THE COURT COPIES OF MV OLD SPEECHES WHAfDOMXJ USE FOR FERTILIZER? IVE NEVER SEEN SUCH A BEAUTIRJL GARDEN. REALLY HAVE A GREEN THUMB HI AND LOIS Ask Andy HONEYBEES Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Leslie DeCrevel, age 11, of Lincoln, Neb., for her question: How do bees make honey? The busy worker bee, as we know, makes honey from flower nectar. To perform this miracle, she needs color vi- sion and a keen sense of smell. She also must be able to interpret information from her sister workers on how to find her way home to the hive. But all these talents would be useless if she did not have a very special stomach. This is where certain chemicals are added to change the. liquid, sweetish nectar into gooey, honey. A younger worker bee spends her first three weeks or so in the hive, performing nursemaid duties and model- ing .wax for the cells. Then she takes a few trips outdoors to get her bearings so that she can find her way to and from the hive. At last she is a full- fledged worker bee, ready to forage for the family groceries. Her marketing chores include the gathering of pollen, resin, water and nectar from the flowers. When a scouting worker returns to the hive, she does a fancy dance to direct other workers to the likely source of supplies. First one, then another and another busy worker takes off in the right direction. As a bee approaches a flower, she is guided by her sense of sight and smell. Usually she avoids scarlet blossoms because red is a color she cannot see. She sees yellows and blues, plus cer- tain ultraviolet rays which happen to be beyond our range of color vision. When she selects a flower, she uncoils her long tongue and sucks op a drop of nectar from its throat Chances are, she also fills the baskets on her back legs with golden grains of pollen. Then she makes a beeline back home, usually guided by polarized light from the sunny sky. Meantime, her special stomach adds certain chemicals to the nectar. Back home in the hive this treated nectar is disgorged. Maybe she gives it to another bee. Maybe she empties the contents into a waxy white cell. There the watery moistures dries out as the magic chemicals from .her stomach transform the runny nectar into thick, supersweet. honey. J After several trips by forag- ing workers, the little white cell is filled with processing honey. The younger workers ooze flakes of wax and mold them to seal the top of the cell. During, the busy summer season, thousands of workers toil to provide food for the thriving hive, plus -extra stores of honey for the winter. Most of them are worked to death after four to six weeks. Come fall, the queen and. her surviving .workers huddle together in the hive and ration their stores of honey through the winter. of Herald readers melted to Mk Andy, P.O.
