ITaftiJ Qtaurn FRIDAY, MAY 12, 1W PAGE 7 : Doctor Alvarez ·V '· ' : Dr. Walter C. Alvarez fa -emeritus consultant in me : cine of the Mayo Clinic and '- emeritus professor of medt- "' cine of the Mayo Foundation. - ON AVOIDING DIARRHEA WHILE TRAVELING · People keep writing to ask me ·what medicine they should take : each day, when they are travel- :ing, so that they won't get an " intestinal upset, perhaps with ·violent diarrhea. They want to ;know also what medicine to take ;if they should get an attack. : Some 20 or 30 years ago I : might have given answers to ' these questions because I then ·accepted the idea of that time that the diarrhea of travelers in \ the tropics is due to an infestation with amebas. Amebas are microscopic single-cell parasites which attack the lining of the bowel, and sometimes go up and produce a big abscess in the liver. A high percentage of the people who live in certain tropical countries have parasites in their bowels. Incidentally, a good point to remember is that a considerable percentage of these people have no symptoms. I remember a big powerfully - built rancher from Mexico who, years ago, brought his wife up to see me. While she was recovering from a little operation, she insisted that he go through the clinic. . When he did, we found his bowel filled with half a dozen different types of parasites which can cause illness. But ne maintained he had never had a sick day in his life, and certainly he looked healthy. He showed how harmless an infestation of the bowel with parasites can be. Once, back in 1925, when it occurred to me that because I had once lived for nearly 3 years in Mexico, I might have acquired some parasites, I had my stools examined for amebas, and found that I had a tremendous infestation with them. But they were not bothering me much, and hence, when I took medicine and got rid of them, all I noticed was that I did not get up at night to urinate. Evidently, they had for some time been irritating my bladder. Another time when I went down to Mexico City, it interested me to note that on arrival there, my bowels became so irritated that all that first night I got hardly any sleep. But next day I was well, and what interested me was that I had no residual abdominal soreness. This fact suggested to me that I had had a virus infection that affected perhaps not my bowel, but only the nerves to my bowel. I have had violent spells like that while traveling in the United States; also I have seen in this country epidemics of this type of illness. I remember well a day when a third of the nurses in one of the two big hospitals in Rochester, Minn, came down with a paralyzing diarrhea. Nearly all of them were well the next day. Such an illness almost has to be due to a virus, and hence is not amenable to treatment with drugs. I know of no drugs that will keep such an illness from coming, and no drug to treat it after it has come. Fortunately,' in most cases, the disease does not need any treatment, because it is gone next day. For years, physicians have been blaming Mexico for most of the "tourist disease," but when the exchange students who go to Europe and Africa and Asia were questioned, it was found that a considerable percentage of them, on arriving in a foreign land, have a brief spell of diarrhea. The percentage affected was higher among those who went to the warm countries on the Mediterranean coast than among those who went to the cool Scandinavian countries. Recently, also, a careful study was made of the stools of many travelers in Mexico who suffered from diarrhea, and it was found that amebic infestation was not the cause. Hence, it is that I know of no drug to take. It still might be well, however, for people traveling in Southern land's to use only bottled water. They must never let the waiter or pantry-man put ice into the water, perhaps with his bare hands. Those persons who like beer and wine can drink those fluids, and others can drink hot tea. It will be advisable to avoid eating salads and such uncr I od foods as are handled by men or women in the kitchen. »«£*·""·« '* eg?
