Gravity causes j Hemorrhoids Dear Dr. Lamb Would you give us a write-up on piles, the tortuous bleeding kind. Please tell the best way lo handle the situation if there is a best way. Dear Header Piles and hemorrhoids are the s a m e thing. This is one of the oldest and most frequent problems of mankind. Piles comes from the Latin PILA meaning ball, a fa- miliar sensation to the afflicted and hemorrhoid comes from Greek meaning blood flow or bleeding hemorrhoids. The main cause is gravity, and man's upright posture may be one good reason to live in space, free of gravity. Animals usually do not have hemor- rhoids. You can do a simple experi- ment and understand why. Re- move any constriction from around the wrist, then let your hand down at your side. Notice how the veins sland out. This is from the pressure of the blood below the heart. Now raise the back of your hand to the level of your eyes and see the veins collapse. At points below the heart, the ing at the stool is a factor. Poor muscle tone leads Lo distended veins.

S o m e- iimes they can be treated with injections that fibrose or scare the dilated veins. This usually takes several injections- This treatment cannot be used for llirombosed (clotted) or pro- truding hemorrhoids. If the con is very severe the only successful treatment is surgery. Hemorrhoids outside the sphincter muscle (external hemorrhoids) cause pain be- cause there are lots of nerve fibers here. These are the only ones that you can do anything about with self-treatment.

If you must treat yourself, you can get temporary relief from an ice cub, local application of witch hazel or soaking in a hot tub twice a day. These are as effective or more so than most highly touted, expensive, adver- tised medicines. But go see your doctor. )Ncwspaner Enterprise Assn.) Pygmies are real Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Bock Encyclopedia to Kathy Rogers, age 8, of Des Moines, Iowa, for her question: Arc pygmies real? Some people claim that pLxies and pookahs are not real. They also say that elves ind other small people of fairy- and arc not real titter. But ev- orybody admits that the little >ygmy people are real. Even he stern-minded folk who have never seen a pygmy. Perhaps this is because they have seen pictures of the pygmies in their leafy jungle homes. Or per- haps they believe in pygmies because some genuine expert there and saw them, back aid reported the went came facts. Andy says that it's bad more people refuse to believe that elves are not real. After all, he happens to be a pockah- type pixie and related to all the other small folk o[ fairy- land. Cut, says he, you have evcrylhing. Many can't chil- dren know the truth and send him lots of letters and questions every week. The birds and the bunnies also know the truth. So do all the oilier creatures that live in the wilds. And most likely, so do the real live pygmy people who live in the real live world. Not many ordinary folk ever ?et a chance to meet the real ive pygmies. This is because Lhcsc little people live quiet in the hot, steamy jun- gles of Africa There the bush- are so thick that ordinary- sized grovvn-irps have a hard ime getting through. But even the tallest pygmies are only about 4Vz feet high and most of them are no bigger than you are. They are rather shy and when large visitors scare them liiey scoot away and hide where big people cannot follow them. It was a long time before friendly explorers coaxed them out of hiding. Then the big peo- ple and little people got to Imow and like each other. Their skins are golden tan and their curly hair is reddish brown. They h a v big bright eyes, huge smiles and their heads seen: rafter large for such small persons. Most of them wear short skirts or breeclres After all, they don't need any clothes in their warm, shady jungles. Visitors who know them sa; that the little people are happy and much loo polite lo lie, or steal or pick a fight. They are quick to understand but thej don't pay attention very long Perhaps they are ml very in terested in things that happen in the outside world. They would rather warrior togelhcr through their jungle, hunting and fishing and picking fruits from the trees. Several friend ly families wander together guided by a pygmy pap whom everyone trusts. When food is plentiful, they stay in a place for a while. Then they b [myTsized houses of bent boughs, covered over with leaves. While they camp, they have time to make new bows and arrows and bake a few earthernvare pots to replace those that have been broken. They also gather grasses and vines to weave some new baskets, bags and maybe a few mini skirts. Experts figure that about pygmies live in the Con- go jungles of Africa. But they are not the only pygmies in the world. Others live in the jungles of New Guinea, Ma- laysia and on a f e w islands near India. Others live in cer- tain forests of the Pliilippines. These separated pygmies never meet. But all of them are very much alike. AH of them worship a Great God who created the earth and the sky. All of them love the world of nature and believe that there are all sorts of magical mys- teries around, wondrous things that may or may not be real.
