Hanoi can ill afford epidemics By W. G. BRANDSTADT, Mil. Q — I nm 67. All my food seems to taste the same.My sense of smell is impaired too. What is Ihe cause sind what is (he treatment for (his? A_Mosl people wlt'i complain of a loss of taste are suffering from a loss of smell as it is this sense that gives them their ability to distinguish flavors. They are still able to recognize the four true tastes—salt, sour, bitter and sweet. Loss of the sense of smell is usually caused by" chronic. nasal con£e -lion, nasal obstruction due to polyps, or chronic allergic rhin- itis, ft is made worse by heavy smoking and frequent use of nasal decongestanls. Relief depends on discovering and removing the cause. The treatment may take the form of desensitizatlon, antibiotics, drugs of the cortisone group or an operation. Prerequisites to any successful treatment, program are to quit smoking and to make sure there is enough humidity in the air you breathe. Q — What would cause a metallic or a bitter taste in my mouth? What can be done for it? A—A metallic taste may be! caused by excessive smoking, j the action of an acid saliva on ] metallic dental fillings, sleeping j with your mouth open or taking { certain drugs that contain a j metal iron, A bitter taste may be caused by excessive belching, neglected teeth, certain drugs, a hiatus hernia or ruptured diaphragm, or a chronic infection in the mouth, nose or throat. The treatment requires the elimination of all possible sources of the abnormal taste. Q—For (wo years I've had tm unbearable taste in my mouth and odor in my nose, Is there any way lo get rid of them? •A-'These symptoms are a great source of worry to elderly persons. They may be caus. ed by a chronic infection in the nose, throat, gums or lungs; 'heavy smoking, or the excessive use of mouthsvashes. Fre* quently.worried preoccupation with l:he possibility of having bad breath aggravates the condition or at least its effect on your equanimity. Q—1 am just getting over an j attack of myasthenia. Is this a ! dangerous disease? A—Myasthenia gravis. a disease characterized by general t weakness, is one of many diseases for which there is no cure, hut which can be controlled with proper treatment. Neoslig- mine, which requires a doctor's I prescription, or a related drug ] is usually effective. Local Auxiliary Sends Letters To Servicemen linn in lerms of population.
