Then, some years ago, the experts were challenged to ex- plain the newly discovered pul- sar objects. And o[ all things, the wild little pulsar led to a fuller understanding of the stu- pendous supernova. As the com- plete story unfolds, it promises to unveil a new chapter in our knowledge of the universe. LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D.

Because of this, he hns eliminated all foods with milk and also eats only bronn bread. Despite this, he still has the old upset because we are not sure what foods contain lactose. Could you prescribe a diet or could we obtain a list of lac- tose free foods? Does powder- ed milk contain Inclose? Dear Reader This is a good time to clarify this prob- lem. There are a number of people who cannot digest lac- tose. Lactose is a type of sugar that is foi'nd in milk (formed by The tissue in the breast forms a double sugar which we call a "disacchar- This double molecule has la be broken up in the intestine to be absorbed. An enzyme called "lactasc" makes this pos- sible. If this enzyme is lack- ing, taking a small amount of lactose will result in diarrhea. expelling the disaccharide with lactic acid. Now, I must point out thai rarely some people also have an intolerance to other double sugars, like sucrose (common household s u g a r) and quite rarely maltose. These condi- tions are caused by lack of an appropriate enzyme in the in- testine also. Lactose intoler- ance is by far the most com- mon defect. Lactose is a milk product. It milk. This means that cheese and but- termilk made from soured milk does not contain lactose. Unless the milk has soured, it will con- Lain in answer to your question, powdered mills does contain lactose.

This has given rise to Ihe thought tha honey ir some way is better than sugar.

The sudden eruption of a su- pernova is more brilliant than 100 billion suns and may out- shine all the stars in an entire galaxy. The dramatic event occurs suddenly, as the explo- sion shoots shells of the star's gases outward at speeds ap- proaching the velocity of light. Centuries after this dazzling Phase One subsides, telescopes reveal filaments of the explod- ing gases, still rushing outward through a vast region of space. However, there is far more to a star than its dazzling light. For some years, have speculated istronomers about what happens lo the gravity, x-rays, radio and other energies when a star explodes in a supernova. Some of these theories are still no more than educated guesses. Others have been proved by radio signals from intensely en- ergetic pulsar bodies. Phase One shoots out dazzling shells of stellar gases. It now seems likely that this cosmic catastrophe also disrupts all the mighty energies of the star's nuclear powerhouse. As Phase One subsides, it is sus- pected that ils enormous gra- vilational force crushes what remains of the star's materials into a light little ball, made mostly of neutrons.
