f Golesburg Register-Moil, Ggteburg, 111. Thursddy, Moy tT t T ^73 if r Dsmb/Family Teen's Diet: Nutrition Gap Dr. Lamb « it • By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. Daar Dr. Lamb - I want to know what happens when one takes vitamin E and estrogen. Does the vitamin destroy the estrogen or the estrogen destroy the vitamin? Also, what happens when one takes the pill longer than she should with out stopping for a period. Dear Reader - 1 am not favorably impressed with the general use of vitamin E for treating a large variety of medical illnesses, neither are the Food and Drug Administration nor the American Medical Assn. However, in moderate doses it is not harmful and in a few problems it has value. It will not affect estrogen, nor will the estrogen affect the vitamin E. Common birth control pills contain substances that have the same action as natural female hormones. During pregnancy increased amounts of female hormones are formed in the body to prevent another ovulatory cycle. This principle was.used to develop the birth control pill. If you take the pill continuously, it is similar to being pregnant. During pregnancy you have a long nine- month period of high levels of the female hormones. This is P.S. I just love your column and some day I wish I could become a doctor like you! Dear Reader — I am not surprised you feel tired from the description of your diet. It is unlikely that you are getting all the different types of protein you need. Most vegetables do | not contain complete proteins. That means that the different types of amino acids that make up the protpins in the foods you eat do not include all of the essential amino acids that should be included in the diet. Now, it is true that if you use a mixed variety of incomplete proteins then you might get all of the essential amino acids in the diet, but this requires some particular attention. The foods that contain complete proteins are the meats, [eggs, milk and,'in short, animal protein. Most vegetarians think that milk is all right. You can stay on a vegetarian diet and use milk and milk products such as cottage cheese. Soybeans and other nature bean seeds are nearly complete proteins but you need to eat a sufficient amount of those to meet a, growing individual's biological needs.

Taking regular birth control pills without interruption is not likely to cause significant damage; however, it does increase the likelihood of the complications attributed to birth control pills. Most doctors would prefer for women to interrupt the regular pill as directed. There is a new low does mini-pill (Micronor and Nor-Q.D.) just approved which is taken daily throughout the year. Dear Dr. Lamb — I'm 15 years old, 5'2" r and weigh 98 pounds! (Female.) I'm*a vegetarian, I eat no meat at all and I don't eat any type of seafood and very seldom do I eat eggs. My diet consists of vegetables, fruits, candy and other sweets. I only stopped eating meat about a year ago. And I take no type of protein. I take B t complex, A, D, E and multiple vitamins. s I often get tired and feel de pressed.

But I would feel a lot better about your situation if you would at least include an abundant amount of milk or cottage cheese in your diet. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.)
