It rarely hurts &UUAM*, ItiK it JtUiS .u'i3i'v CKUliJCa each year than polio. D. T.: How? M. D.: An overdose makes you breathe so bard and fast, that you exhale most of the " i carbon dioxide in your blood. D. T.: Isn't this good? M. D.: No. \t Carbon dioxide turns into an add inside your body. You need this acid to bal- Dr. Fern anco the acid' neutralizes in your system. D. T.: So? M. D.: To restore balance, the kidneys flush acid-neutralizers down the drain. D. T.: Then everything is fine? M. D.: No. Aspirin also emothere those microscopic fires which burn sugar. And so the body has to melt and burn fats for heat and energy. Burning fats change into acids that build up In the blood stream end make you sick. Doesn't Neutralize? D. T.: Doesn't the blood neutralize these acids? M. D.: It can't. The kidneys nave emptied out most acid- neutralizers. An unarmed vie tlm can't fight off a gang of acid-slinging hoodlums, D. T.: How does the acid affect bun? M. D.: He up-chucks. Foggy Vision blinds him while an inv aginary foghorn blasts In his ears. Droplets of sweat drip from his bluish brow before he finally lapses into coma. D. T.: What should I do if gets into the aspirin M. D.: Call your doctor before you dash off to the hospital. He may suggest a dose up most of the aspirin before t's absorbed into the system— or a mild laxative to speed it along the other way. Speed Urgent If you can't reach your doc;or, don't wait; every minute counts! Junior's stomach can rinsed clean at the hospital emergency room while you're still trying to reach the good doctor. D. T.: What do you give for acid blood? M. D.: Bicarbonate of soda. D. T.; Ordinary baking soda? How many boxes do you use? Solution Injected M. D.: We inject a special sterilized solution directly into the blood stream. D. T.: And what happens to all the aspirin? M. D.: Most flushes through the kidneys. If they're too sluggish, we hook up a third—artificial— kidney. We may even replace the blood with aspirin- free transfusions. Aspirin poisoning can be prevented! D. T.: That's right. Baby aspirins come in trick bottles with safety caps that children can't open. M. D.: Don't rely on bottle caps. Junior can still get into adult aspirin bottles. Use your head and lock aspirin away with all your other drugs! Dr. fern's mailbox is wide open for letters from readers.
