something I do for myself every day I take my "Three years ago my doctor and I agreed that taking PREMARIN was right for me, I've been taking it ever since, with my doctor^ approval, I feel wonderful,,, my menopausal symptoms are gone and 1 know I'm helping to prevent osteoporosis and protect my future, Taking PRIMARIN is part of my daily routine," PREMARIN is prescribed for relief of the uncomfortable symptoms of menopause, as well as prevention of the serious bone disease osteoporosis. In fact, PREMARIN is the first estrogen proven to help prevent osteoporosis. It's important to speak with your health care provider to help determine your risk for osteoporosis. PREMARIN, a complex blend of estrogens, has been prescribed for more than 50 years. The most studied of all estrogens, PREMARIN has earned your confidence, just as it has earned the confidence of generation after generation of women all over the world. Today, PREMARIN is taken by more than 9,000,000 women in the U.S. alone. PREMARIN is the brand you can depend on. Wyeth- Ayerst, a world leader in women's health care, goes to great lengths to ensure the quality of PREMARIN during its manufacturing process. Of the 40 billion PREMARIN tablets sold, not one has been recalled. Ever. Those are some of the reasons why so many women and their doctors have confidence in PREMARIN. .. and why you can have confidence, too. P reman PL There can be side effects with hormones. One side effect of estrogen replacement therapy is the possibility of developing cancer of the uterus. If you have had a hysterectomy, you don't have this risk. When you discuss hormone replacement therapy with your doctor or health care provider, be sure to discuss your personal and family history of breast cancer, breast lumps, abnormal vaginal bleeding, abnormal blood clotting, or heart disease. Women who are pregnant should not take hormone replacement therapy because of possible risk to the fetus. Look for the oval tablet. The unique appearance of the PREMARIN tablet, with the name PREMARIN on it, is your assurance that you're getting the estrogen therapy that offers a combination of excellent quality and 50-year heritage... all for only about 40 cents per day. PREMARIN is the most prescribed medication in the country. Many women find that very comforting. And, if you take PREMPRO™ (conjugated estrogens/ medroxyprogesterone acetate tablets) 0.625 mg/2.5 mg or PREMPHASE® (conjugated estrogens/medroxyprogesterone acetate tablets) 0.625 mg/5 mg, which contain the same estrogens found in PREMARIN, you can enjoy that same level of confidence. If you have any questions about your PREMARIN prescription, speak with your doctor or health care provider. Please be sure to read the important information preceding this ad, "When i take ray PRIMARIN, I know I'm doing something good for myself, PRBMARIN will continue to m m^ brand of istrogtn," Forme it. PREMARIN ' ' itedestrogenstablets ) USP)0.625mg NEVUS & VIEWS • Peyton's place I admire the drive and high standards of University of Tennessee quarterback Peyton Manning ("The star who stayed in school," Aug. 15-17), but I hardly think it's fair to compare his choice [to stay in college another year rather than go pro] to the choices of students whose families do not live in "an 1853 showplace with a pool and celebrity neighbors." Let's not try to set up Manning as a role model for aspiring athletes who come from lower- or middle-class homes. He's not saying, "Show me the money" — but then again, he doesn't need to see it, does he? Margie Monforton, Farmlngton Hills, Mich. The story about Manning was excellent and heartwarming. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Mary Lee Bowen, Nashville • Produce and pesticides: The debate continues I was surprised that your story about pesticides sprayed on fruits and vegetables ("Is there poison in your produce?" Aug. 15-17) didn't mention that plants make their own natural pesticides. All of life is a risk, and sometimes the bounty provided for us by "Mother Nature" can be just as toxic as the formulated products created by industry. Randy Elscher Wlxom, Mich. A sidebar asks of pesticides, "How risky are they?" Unfortunately for your readers, the answer is vague and not based on scientific data. A 1989 National Academy of Sciences study states that the risk that may result from increased exposure to pesticide residues "would be greatly outweighed by the potential benefits" of fruits and vegetables. No government or public health agency Feme Bork, of Leyden, Mass., and son Aaron were featured In a story about shoppers switching to organic produce. has ever stated that there is a public health concern from pesticides in the food supply. Stacey A. Zawel, United Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Association, Alexandria, Va. • The plane truth I am delighted that Bob Mischke, at age 64, is a top air traffic controller ("Ten people who could change your life," Aug. 15-17). He has a stressful job demanding instant eye- body-brain coordination and — with no mishap despite directing 4,000 planes a day — refutes the idea that one must be young to work. Bob is cool. Ruth Unterberg, New York City • The right pet for the right owner As vice president of the local Humane Society, I'd like to thank Elizabeth Marshall Thomas for her words of advice about pet ownership ("Q&A: Pets," Aug 15-17). All too often, pets are adopted for the wrong reasons. They are a great deal of work, especially dogs. I have seen far too many animals come back to the shelter because they "didn't work out." Pet ownership is a privilege. If you don't have the time to dedicate to a pet, forget it. Jean Adler, St Cloud, Minn. When a reader asked what would be a good pet for a person who lives in a place where pets are not allowed, you forgot to mention fish. A more educating and relaxing pet is hard to find! My cat, Norman, loves to watch the fish tanks. Michael Hecht, Us Vegas • •Garcia: Good advice | I just read the Aug. 22-24 3 "Straight Talk" with actor Andy f Garcia and was impressed to I see that he is holding on to his I ideals and values. People need to stay connected to their heritage for many reasons. I try to stay connected with my Southern roots as well as my grandfather's homeland of Honduras. As a Spanish teacher, I tell my students how important heritage and culture are. Susan J. Mitchell, Whitehall, Wls.
