Strictly speak- ing, blood poisoning means in- fectious agenls in the blond-1 stream circulating throughout j the body. Normally, the blood, kills organisms, but sonic are strong enough to the body's normal defence mech- anisms. We call an inieclion of. the blood a sepsis in the bloul. Tins may j not produce any external signs of an inlec'ion in terms of swelling or read slreyks un Ihc. skin An infccicd tuuLh may, tor example, haderia into the bloodstream. If a person a cbiiKpcd head valve, (his can baclcnal inllamma- tion of Ihc inside of Ihc heart, i Then bacteria may be released into Ihc bloodstream. Many people call a local in- fection of Ihc finger, hand or; elsewhere "blood poisoning'1 when it gels red and if there are red m.irks extending out 1 from the 'nfeclion. reel streaks are inflamed U mph vessels in most instances. 11 does nol mean that bacteria arc circulating in Ihc blood- stream throughout Ihe body, as in scplicemia. II usually means Ihc infection has nol been lo- calized or walled off bv na- Im-e's usual defence mechan- isms and Ihe infection may spread further. Such a spread- ing of infection deserves immc- diale attention.

Andy sends a complete 20- volumne set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Chris iMeissner age 15, of Broden- lon, Florida, for his question: Why does a cow have four slomachs? A cow lives with chronic in- digestion, or so it seems. Every meal is followed by a long scries of hiccoughs and cud- chewing. This tiresome way vt life is governed by lhe compli- cated stomach she inherited from her remote ancestors. They needed it to protect them from their mortal enemies and without it they would not have sunived. In which case, the domesticated cow would not be with us. Her ice cream and oilier dairy products would be missing from our menu. In nature, the reason for any biological feature is related to many other things, directly or indirectly. The cow's complicat- ed stomach made it possible for her ancestors to survive iiucl perhaps also made possible the ?gc of mammals. Her earli- est ancestors chewed and di- pp.stcd their food more or less like most, nlher mammals. But thdr simpler stomachs caused far more serious problems than indigestion. Like most mam- mal? of their day they vcpplarians. They had lo spend long hours grazing and brows- ing. Digesting vegetation is a slow process and dining oc- cupied most of tho day. Thev shared their long ago world with several caL dog and bear type carrmores. These meat caters had the role of reducing the vegetarian popula- tions v.lio otherwise would have multiplied loo fast, de- voured all the greenery and starved themselves out of exis- tence. The most successful car- nivores of each generation were the fastest, strongest and most cunning ones. Hence, they thrived and grew more menac- ing. The herds of primitive cat- tle, grazing out in the open, were at their mercy. Without some new device, the meat- eaters would have devoured all the vegetarians thereby put- I NEVER SEEN WHO WAS 50 yPTlGHT J AKWT ling themselves and all the other mammals out of busi- ness. However, the hoofed cattle developed a compartmentalized stomach that saved the day, This began when they discover- ed the swallow now-chew-later method of dining. While the carnivores dozed, usually at dawn and dusk, the vegetarians tippy toed into the open and Filled their stomachs with hasti- ly swallowed Then they retired to hide themselves in the shelter of the shady woods, coughed up gobs of food, patiently chewed the cud and rcswallowed H lo be properly digested. This cud chewing sys- tem was a life saver and grad- ually through the ages the cow stomach evolved separate com- partments to cope with it. The domesticated cow in- herited her fancy sloma-ch from her wild anceslors When in the course of nature a simple organ evolves into a more complex one. there is no way [o return lo the original model. For cen- turies, the dairy cow has led a pampered life, protected from the prowlers and pouncers that plagued her ancestors. She no longer needs her complicated digestive system, but there is no way to change it. When a cow grazes, each mouthful is swallowed whole and goes down to fill the rumen compartment. Later, she hic- coughs Lo bring up a gob of moist food and patiently chews it. This is reswallowcd and goes down lo he partially digested in the reticulum compartment.
