30 Galesburg Register-Mail, Go(esburg^Jlj. .Monday, June,18,J973 o a u /family -4ft O/d Song To Different Tune Dr. Lamb Martha: Nixon Always Knew About Watergate Affair By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb — We would Appreciate your evaluation of the enclosed advertisement of Dr. Atkins* diet. He claims that many fried foods, whipped cream and other things can be used in his plan, contrary to all advice all other doctors give to heart patients. Two in our family have had heart attacks. Our weights arc in the safe range, but we would like to have a medical opinion of Dr. Atkins' ideas. Dear Reader — The Council on Food and Nutrition of the American Medical Assn. has labeled Dr. Atkins' diet as unscientific and unsafe for the public. " While I was involved in a public TV interview, one of Dr. Atkins' associates said in my presence that Dr. Atkins and his group were not responsible for some of the statements in the advertisement which has • appeared in so many national newspapers advertising his book. The basic diet principle is not new, it's a variation of the constantly recycling low carbohydrate diets. I believe the Atkins version is a bit more dangerous to people's health because of the complete lack of carbohydrates recommended during the first week of the diet. This can cause loss of excess amounts of salt and fluid leading to fainitness and fatigue. Chemical imbalance, which can occur with such a severe restriction of carbohydrates, can be particularly bad for some individuals. I have read Dr. Atkins' book in its entirety and find a number of factual errors. For example, the implication that primitive man did not eat carbohydrates but was a hunter is not based strictly on historical, facts. Primitive man actually used honey, when he could find it, as well as numerous sources of vegetables and cereals. The fat mobilizing hormone which is referred to in his book and in his advertisement has not even ^been identified in man. This point was made by the AMA Food and Nutrition Council. Take Good Look Unless I'm convinced I'm going to get into trouble with it, I usually take a good look at these kinds of recommendations and even try them on myself, which I did with the Atkins diet. Within three days I was ill. I had a gross loss -of energy, felt faint and weak, and had a severe headache. During the two- andna-half-day period that I fol­ lowed the diet I ate eggs and meat as he recommended, but no carbohydrates. Because. of the chemical imbalance I developed ketonuria, which he expects to develop, which is similar to what a diabetic develops in the process of going into dia betic coma. As soon as I stopped the diet, because of how bad I felt from it, and started using carbohydrates again, quickly regained my energy and recovered from the ketosis. Jt would take a small book for me to detail all of the things which I think are wrong with this.kind of diet, including the point that you raised in your letter that the prolonged use of foods high in fat and cholesterol can be dangerous for the heart and circulatory system. The diet is deficient in calcium which, on a long term basis, could lead to degeneration of the spine and other medical problems. In summary, let me say that I agree with the recommendations made by the AMA council, and believe that the diet is potentially hazardous for general use by the public, and I do not recommend it. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on balanced diet, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for "Balanced Diet" booklet. War Mothers Unit At New Windsor Assists Orphans NEW WINDSOR — Mrs. Mar ion Keck, president of New Windsor Unit 80, Mothers of World War II, told members ^t a recent meeting that a large assortment of items has been collected for orphaned children in Vietnam.

Next meeting will be June-25 at the New Windsor Town Hall. Merle Fisher and Marie Yerkey will- be hostesses. By HELEN THOMAS WASHINGTON (UPI) - Martha Mitchell said today President Nixon "always knew what was going" on" about the Watergate affair. "I'll be damned if I'll let my husband take the rap for Mr. President," the wife of former Attorney General John N. Mitchell said in an early morning telephone call to this reporter. "Between you and me and the gatepost, Mr. President always knew what was going on." Mrs. Mitchell, calling from her New York City home, pointed out that Mitchell, while he was Nixon's campaign director in 1972, spent many evenings planning campaign strategy with the President. "Have you any Idea how many times he went out on the Sequoia (the President's yacht) with the President?" she asked. On Sunday, Mrs. Mitchell called this reporter at Key fiiscayne, Pla,, and denied she and hef husband were breaking up as a result of the Watergate. She said the reports were "ridiculous . . . absolutely asinine." "That's nonsensical," she said. "I really want to put the squash on that." She was asked if her husband, former Attorney General John N. Mitchell* was "shaken'' by the testimony of Jeb Stuart Magruder, the former deputy Nixon campaign director, that Mitchell helped plan the raid on Democratic national headquarters at the Watergate complex. "He's holding up beautifully," Mrs. Mitchell said. "But of caum he's shaken. He's great, absolutely groat. There arc a lot of people who think Magruder is a liar." Mrs. Mitchell expressed some bitterness at report that Pat Nixon feels sovry lor tho families of deposed White House aides essential body scents . primitive musk blended with gentle scents . cocoanut, vanilla, rose, strawberry, jasmine, and the original musk timeless potions to promise and provoke , . , available in two ounce bottles priced at $3.95 . . . open tonight until nine calico cat Saturday & weekdays 10-5 monday & friday 10-9 Running out of TIME! 12 ' ' 7% •s 10 It - « The Weaver-Yemm Sales Clock 467 SOLD! 133 TO GO!
