Is it a disease that has been wiped out by antibiotics? Miss E. G.. Del. Dear. Miss. G.: Dropsy is not a disease; rather it is a symptom. H refers to an unusual accumulation and retention of fluid in the tissues of the body. The term "dropsy" is outdated. It has been replaced by the word "edema." Both are used almost interchangeably.

Can you help me relieve her fears by telling her if longevity can be really determined by the "life line" in the hand? Mr. A. R., Maine Dear Mr- R.: For centuries people have been caught in the trap of mysticism that surrounds such inept "medical guidance." There is no validity to the estimation of longevity by a particular line in the palm. It sometimes takes a great deal of effort to eradicate the unfounded fears implanted in the minds of sensitive people.
