20 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE LIQUOR BLAMED WITHOUT CAUSE Only Ahout 5 Per Cent of Alcoholism Cases End in Cirrhosis. , By F. B^ COMCON -Associated Press Science Writer. BALTIMORE, March 25. UR--Excessive drinking of, alcohol, Dr. Al- ·bert M. Snell told the American College of Physicians today,' does not commnly cause cirrhosis or hardening of the liver. This is contrary to the prevailing theory held both by doctors and the general public. Cirrhosis occurs in only, about 5 per cent of cases pf alcoholism, Dr. Snell said. He is associated with the Mayo clinic at Rochester, Minn. ·' ' Cases of cirrhosis that are caused by alcoholism comprise about hal! the total, however. Other causes In- 'clude diseases of the gall bladder bile ducts or spleen and Infectious fevers. The disease usually is recognized top late to save the pa tient's life^ . ' ' ' . ' ' ' Replaces Own Parts. Dr. J. L. Bollman, also of the Mayo- clinic, told how the livei makes its own repairs when dam aged by disease. The liver replace: diseased parts with new tissue, an keeps up th'e fight until its powe of restoring itself .has .been ex hausted. Only then does the diseas get the upper hand. / .. Severe cirrhosis", of · the liver in animal produces a fluid: In the ab, domen that may prove fatal, Dr. Bollman said, but a diet rich in carbohydrates tends to remove the fluid. An animal with its liver entirely removed can live 48 hours on a diet containing plentiful sugar, where otherwise it would live only three to Six hours. Vitamins Arc Discussed. Young rats seem to .learn only half as fast when vitamins B, C and G are absent from their diet as when they are receiving all the vita- rains, it ,was reported by Dr. E. V. McCollum of the Jphn Hopkins' university School of Hygiene. Vitamins B, C and G are:those that are soluble in water. There are three others, vitamins A. D and E that are soluble in fats. Dr. McCollum also learned that there are more "left-handed" rats among those that do not receive vitamins B, C and G in their mother's milk. The percentage of left- handed rats among those on normal diet is higher than in humans. SLAIN LABOR CHIEF eASIMPORTTAX ACT KEPT ALIVE House Overrides Committee Suggestion to Postpone Hush Measure.
