Dear Dr. Solomon: My mother is 83 years old. She was told by her doctor that she should try to get a little more sunlight because it would help strengthen her bones. I can understand how something like calcium would help strengthen a persons bones, but what does sunlight have to do with the problem? - Mrs. M.N., Duluth, Minn. Dear Mrs. N.: Exposure to sunlight may prevent softening of bone by improving calcium metabolism. Conversely, people who avoid sunlight mdy have an increased risk of metabolic bone disease. Older people, in particular, are among those who may not get sufficient exposure to sunlight. 0 mto Marie Antoinette has defenders Cosmetologists meet Pennsylvania Hairdressers and Cosmetologists Association Affiliate 12 will meet tonight at 7 p.m. at the South Vo-Tech School, Dickson City.

Dear Dr. Solomon: I know from reading your column that the treatment for arthritis includes exercise, and I also know that exercise can be either good or bad. Would you please explain how exercise can be both good and bad when talking about the same person? - Les, Atlanta, Ga.r Dear Les: The explanaUon is not very complicated. Appropriate exercise for arthritis patients can help slow the harmful Joint changes, which are readily seen on X-ray. Selective exercise can also improve the patient's ability to perform the acUvities of daily living, such as dressing, washing and eating. Inappropriate exercise, however, can aggravate the joint disease, and arthritis patients who engage in exercise should avoid doing too much, too soon. More specifically, these patients generally can engage in activities that do not place much stress on the Joint. These include walking swimming and bicycling. However, activities that involve twisting and sudden stops - such as tennis, basketball, volleyball, racquetball and long-distance running - should be avoided.

Dear Dr. Solomon: For years I have been reading your columns on health and observe that you have the ability to put medical and health information together while still being able to communicate with the layman on his level. That is rare. And even more .so when combined with your experience and knowledge of the health system of the government. - Dr. Helen Douty, Auburn University, Auburn, Alabama. (If you have a medical question, write to Neil Solomon, MJ)., P.O. Box 21487, Pikesyille, Md. 21208. Dr. Solomon cannot give personal replies but will answer as many questions as possible 'in his column.) (c) 1985, Los Angeles Times Syndicate , DEAR ABBY: I would like to clear up a misconception that has been perpetrated over the years concerning Marie Antoinettes famous statement, Let them eat cake. Years ago, the French bakers would make a mixture of flour and water that they spread on the bricks of the oven. This hardened crust provided a clean surface on which to place the dough for baking bread. At the end of each day, the bake would scrape off this crusty substance and put it in buckets out the back door for the beggars. This substancev was called cake, which later became confused with the sweet pastry that only the well-to-do could afford. - GRETCHEN HABEL, BELLEVILLE, MICH. DEAR GRETCHEN: Another defender of Marie Antoinette offers this informative morsel : DEAR ABBY: Please, please, please! While Marie Antoinette may have been no paragon of virtue, let us not damn her further by repeating that malicious retort, Let them eat cake, after being told the peasants had no bread. The person who translated that remark was obviously not as familiar with the French language as he should have been. Properly translated, it should have read, Let them eat the little cakes - meaning the small, round, flat cakes of flour or meal - a far cry from a delicacy. Those little cakes (or something similar) are still eaten by the very poor in backward countries. -H.S. BALLARD, KETTERING, OHIO , DEAR H.S. BALLARD: Read on for an interesting bit of icing on the cake: DEAR ABBY: Love your column, Abby, but might I suggest eating crow rather than cake for allowing a nasty misquote to slip by? A letter on the etiquette for eating wedding cake ended by attributing Let them eat cake to Marie Antoinette. This much maligned queen had too much class to utter such a remark. In the sixth book of his Confessions, written in 1766, Jean Jacques Rousseau refers to an incident that happened in 1740, 15 years before Marie Antoinette was born: At length I recalled the thoughtless remark of a great princess, who, when she was told the peasants had no bread, replied, Let them eat cake. In The Dictionary of Misinformation, author Tom Burnam notes the' writing of Alphonse Karr, who in 1843 explained that a duchess of Tuscany supposedly uttered the remark in 1760. Karr contended the quote was used to discredit Marie Antoinette. Serious biographers of the queen do not even grace the remark with a comment. As a newspaper editor, I hate to see such dubious - and ugly -statements creep into print. And I have a more personal, reason as well; I am the great-great-great-grandson of the man who claims to be her son, the lost dauphin, Louis XVU. As the inheritor of a family legend, I have been compelled to defend the honor of Marie Antoinette many times. I would appreciate your correcting this matter. - L. MICHAEL MAY, NEWS EDITOR, THE SEWICKLEY HERALD, SEWICKLEY, PA. DEAR MR. MAY: Your letter takes the cake. Now, please pass the crow. (Do you bate to write letters because you dont know what to say?
