Safeguard Your Health Don't Insist on Tonsilectomy (From Illinois Medical Society) Parents who insist upon the removal of their child's tonsils at the first sign of a sore throat or irritation may be making a serious mistake. Why? Because tonsils are not the culprits most of us think they are. Quite the contrary, in fact. Tonsils play a vital role in the child's defense against infection. They are veritable vaccine factories, producing special cells which kill invading bacteria. These patches of spongy tissue, located at strategic points on the inside of the throat, are constantly trapping and battling bacteria and other air pollutants. Advantage In Traps Not only germs in the air, but also germs that get into the Mbther's Helper by Heimonn & Pcorton "SWASH-WASH" Seven DayH Per Week *«ri"*wr V Open 24 Hours Dully "in the heart of Wilshire" IT PROBABLY isn't a vrry ffood idea to buy your young student's entire school wardrobe now. He may think he knows what he wants—and possibly he does—but he may change his mind when school •starts. Don'I underestimate the power of what "they" are wearing! Should you disapprove strongly, reach a compromise. -I l.lfi.1. New York Herald Trlbunr. Inc. mouth are likely to be destroyed if trapped by tonsils. Since small children seem to enjoy placing dirty fingers, toys and various strange objects in their mouths, the advantage of these automatic, built-in germ traps is obvious. Why, then, are some parents so anxious to have them removed? Medical survey show that the two major reasons for removal of tonsils are size and frequent respiratory infections—colds and sore throats. As for size, it has been proved that large tonsils have no effect on the child's health whatsoever. Size is no more reason for removing healthy tonsils than it is for amputating healthy feet. (Only when tonsils are enlarged because they are overloaded with germs are they likely to be a source of infection. Then, of course, they • should be removed.) As for respiratory infections, H hfis been found that they are just us common in children after the removal of tonsils as before. In fact, one extensive study of 909 children in England found that those who had their tonsils removed actually had more colds than those who retained them. Fatality Risk The popular belief that ton- sill ectomy is a minor operation with no risk involved is also erroneous! Tonsilectomy is a serious operation and may prove fatal. Sure the falality risk is small, but it's still a risk which—in many cases—may be unnecessary. Certainly there are instances where tonsileclomies are essential. The decision to operate, however, should be made by the physician—not the parents —and then only after a thorough examination and an extended period of observation. Parents should never try to talk a doctor into performing u needless operation.
