By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb — Recently I was listening to a nutritionist speaking on the radio. She said the coloring in margarine eauses cancer. (She didn 't say where the cancer would be.) Do you think this Is true? I certainly would appreciate an answer to this question as soon as p|Ossiblc. Dear Reader — No, this is not true. Incidentally, in the United States if any substance used for food is found to cause cancer in animals even (not necessarily in man), by law it cannot be distributed. This was the reason that the artificial sweetener, cyclamate, was removed from the market. In huge doses cyclamate was associated with cancer of the bladder in rats. To show you how strict the law is on this, for human beings to get the same amount of cyclamate that was used to produce the bladder cancer in rats, they would need to have drunk enough artificial sweetened drinks to produce 100 BONTOURA' with Diamonds of Ultimate Beauty... $189.50 IKuitration Enlarged Her /ondest dreams corns tru0 when you choose'a Contoura diamond hridal set.

So I think that you could safely put out of your mind the idea that the mar garine coloring has anything to do with cancer. Dear Dr. Lamb — I was very interested in the answer you gave in your column to the question on the physical effects of constant TV watching on children to the exclusion of all other activity. As a child I was forced by my parents to lead a very sedentary life. I was never allowed to run and play vigorously as other children because of my mother's fears that I might hurt myself. As an adult I find I have all the symptoms you described in your coljjmn, complete lack of energy and physical exhaustion after the slightest amount of activity. I am always too tired to do my housework or to play with my young child. My question is this: Is there any way of reversing the degeneration of the body's normal functions in an adult at 34? I have heard that exercises will increase energy, but ironically I do not, have the energy to exercise. Dear Reader — Getting started is the most difficult part. Many individuals your age, and considerably older, can improve their energy level if they can just get started on an exercise program. Most people have difficulty in getting motivated and and then, if they do start, they get impatient and do it as a crash project. What you need to do is to start gradually and do it steadily. If you can find a good friend to exercise with you, why don't ym start taking regular walks together? The two of you will help to encourage each other and this way you are more likely to stick with the program. For someone who has never had significant amounts of physical activity, such as you described, I realty believe the best thing one can do is to start walking. Gradually build up your walking from 15 minutes a day until you are able to walk a ful) hour's time without distress and undue fatigue. At that point you will probably be in good enough physical shape to join some exercise club if there happens to be one in your area. In any case, try to find at least one and preferably two good friends you can exercise reguJarly with, and this will help keep you going. If you can stick with the program, you will be surprised what you can accomplish after only a few weeks of effort. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) The debut w«s impressive, even though neither of the two OMC entries ^ one powered by an Evinrude RC and the other by n Johnson RC — was able to finish. They were among 43 of the H entriei - outboards, in- botrds and leti that fell vtetim to thoso old bugaboos of boat racing, tncelianical failures and hulf troubles. IN FACT, OMC's big racing rival, Mercury Outboard, won the Parker, ^nis and Duane BergHauer of film Grove, Wis., setting a new record of 62 laps and fl06 miles during the nine consecutive hours of competition. Their Molinari tunnel hull was powered by a Mercury Twister II. Average lap speed was about 90 miles per hour. the Johnson RC" powered boat completed one lap at 96.1 mph before it dropped out and the fivinrude entry did eight laps before it went into the p^ts for good, both because override switches failed to function. The' two boats roared away far in front of the field from the Le Mans - type standing start and at one point on the run up the Oolorado Hiver course the Johnson craft was estimated unofficially to be hitting close to 136 mph. OMC OFFICIALS dismissed the menchanical failures as minor and conclude that the new power i^ts "displayed tremendous acceleration, speed and potential power." Team driver Jim "Jimbo" McConnell of Wonder Lake, 111., who piloted the Evlnrude craft over the 13 mile laps — 6% miles up river and then back to the starting point had nothing but praise for the new engine, the first rotary outboard motor manufactured in the United States. "I thoroughly love the engine," McConnell said. "You can cruise at 100 mph very easily. You can come out of a turn faster than you went into it and, on a straightaway, you don't hang the boat up in the air as you might with a conventional engine." OMC GOT SOMfi solace in the Parker by the fact that boats powered by its conventional Evinrudes and Johnsons captured 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th and 8th places among the first 10 finishers. The Parker was the first of a numt)er of competitive events here and abroad in which OMC's new rotary outboards will take part this year. Hie next will be at Galveston, Tex., April 15. OMC said the new RCs are not to be considered immediate replacements for the conventional Evlnrude and Johnson piston outboards. At this stage, they are "experimental racing machines" and defiititely won't be offered to the public before 1975, according to Charles Strang, OMC vice president. WANT ADS PAY DIVIDENDS!
