Contact Reality Most important—he does not drink to escape facing reality. He drinks in order to contact reality—an inner reality of feelings and an outer reality of human Involvement.

By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb — I read the enclosed article which states that the virus that causes cold sores may also cause cancer. I realize the word "may" means that it hasn't been proved, but do you realize how many individuals will be adding this juicy tidbit to their medical files and beware of the fellow with cold sores. I get cold sores on the average of once a year and I know other adults, including children, who have those huge, scabby, |unsightly sores. From reading the article would you say that I am a suspected cancer carrrier? .1 would hate to be shunned sim- |ply because of a lousy cold sore that I dislike and have no con trol oVer. I realize the article in the paper was done for medi cal' reasons, but can you imag ine the reactions of people who are plagued with cold sores, wish you would help me and my fellow cold sore sufferers out with a comment on this news article. Dear Reader — You really are an optimist if you think it 's possible to keen people from be- in* alarmists. Regardless of how carefully and plainly facts are exnressed, individuals who want !to be alarmists will be anyway — once a worrier, always a wor- Iricr. Much experimental evidence implicates viruses in the development of cancer. However, I viruses are all around us . . . on Inur skin, clothes, in the air we breathe. Why is it that one person develops an illness from a virus and another one does not? The difference is in the susceptibility of the individuals or their levels of resistance. The cancer victim may have lost his resistance mechanisms in the body causing him to be susceptible to substances, including viruses, which may cause cancer. I In plain language, even if the Icold sore virus were proved to cause cancer — which has not been proved — this alone would not mean that the person who lhas a cold sore is. particularly likely to develop cancer. If so, there would be an awful lot more people with, cancer than 'occurs. Nor does the presence a cold sore mean that such individuals will transmit cancer (to another person. Two Factors I may have merely confused |you, but the point 1 am frying to make is that there apparently are two factors related to developing any cancer, 1) the susceptibility or tendency of the person to develop one, and 2) the causative factor, virus, chemical whatever it may be. The causative agent may produce tissue damage, as might occur to the lung cells from cigarette •rooking, or tissue damage from Cold Bu« Study LOS ANGELES (UPI) - You are least likely to do it before breakfast, and most likely to do it after lunch, according to a research loam at itihe University of Southern California trying to find out when mast people catch colds.

"But even the poorest forgotten man who drinks deserves the dignity of a reappraisal. And if we (the medical cstflbllsbmieM) are willing to grant him the, right to an unbiased reappraisal, we might be surprised by what we discover." any number of chemical sub stances classified as carcino jgenic (cancer producing sub stances), and in the susceptible person the damage may lead to cancer. In the hopes of establishing one clear statement on this fair ly complex subject, let me say |again that there is no evience that individuals who have cold sores are unusually likely to de velop cancer, nor is there any levidence that individuals with cold sores will cause or transmi cancer to other people.
