For example: Childhood diabetes, an inherited ailment, responds much better to treatment if it is discovered before it makes the child ill. With early diagnosis, the young diabetes victim may need only a fourth or a fifth as much insulin as the child whose diabetes affliction Is not discovered until he Is severely ill. And periods of remission (absence of symptoms) may he as much as 24 times as long for the child who receives early treatment. An Asian doctor reports how he saved newborn twin boys from a usually fatal ailment the twin tranfusion syndrome. There are only three cases known tn which twins survived the syndrome, which results in one infant becoming anemic (too little blood) and the other plethoric (too much blood). The exact cause of the syndrome Is now known, according to a report In Modern Medicine. The mother, a 27-year-old Pakistani woman who had borne three other children without complications, was hospitalized when she was 35 weeks pregnant, because her blood showed signs of infection. Labor was induced and she gave birth to identical twin boys, one showing the flush of a plethoric condition, the other pale from anemia. Blood transfers were performed on both Infants, and the anemic one In addition received dextrose injections. Other measures helped keep them alive and gradually thoy improved. At the age of 17 months, both infants seemed to be developing normally, although the one born with anemia was .somewhat smaller than his twin. Pollution will make the earth warm np, the ice caps will melt, the seas will rise and coastal cities will be drowned. True? How about this thought: Pollution will make the world colder and the ice ages will return. Which is true? We know pretty well what would happen if the amount of carbon dioxide tn the air increased. Carbon dioxide lets the rays of the sun come through from space but when the rays hit the earth and bounce back, they cannot penetrate the carbon dioxide layer to get back Into space. More carbon dioxide In the air would retain more heat and would tend to make the world get wanner. We may not be increasing the carbon dioxide content of our air appreciably. Tests indicate that in spile of all the fossil fuels we have been burning, the percentage of carbon dioxide may not be greater today than it was half a century ago. On the other hand, we're throwing lots of dust and solid particles Into the atmosphere and we don't know what effect they may have on our weather. Dust scattered in the atmosphere will absorb both the heat coming from the sun and the radiation coming from earth. If the amount of sun energy bounced back into space is greater than the amount of earth energy bounced back toward the land, the effect will be a cooling one. If the opposite occurs, the earth may warm up. A drop of 314 degrees centigrade could bring on another Ice age. Scientists at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies say the amount of carbon dioxide would have to Increase 10 times to achieve a 2-degree rise I n temperature. More carbon dioxide wouldn't raise the temperature any further because the gas would have reached its "absorption limit," the scientists report. On the other hand, Increasing the amount of dust four times may cause a 3.5-degree drop that could bring on another ice age.
