A full-page ad in the September issue of The Tulsa World caught my eye. With a large picture of a beautiful lady stroking a lovable dog, it asserted: "New medicine based on an 88-year old theory by Albert Einstein can help almost everyone who is sick or injured! To help almost every health prob- lem ever experienced by a human being! It works so well on so many dif- ferent problems, it seems like it couldn't possibly be true!" Well... I'll buy that last part. That's quite a claim. It goes beyond the countless ads that offer cures for endless physical ailments that might come upon us, all of which have been given fearful sounding names and abbreviations. These ads are designed to scare the daylights out of us and seduce us into buying their products, even if we don't need them yet. We are regularly treated to visions of having to deal with such horrible things as: ADD, ADHD, PAH, STD, HIV, RA, AD, MAD, MAED, MS, DDTHA, AMD, GERD, PLEVA, IBS, MRSA, Mesothelioma, Meniere's syndrome, Crone's disease, Hypoglyclmia, Tourett's Syndrome, Achalasia, Batonella henselae, Hun- tington disease, Lupus, Salmonila, bi-polar condi- tion, Neuropathy, Psoria- sis, Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain fever, ehrichio- sis, hemorrhoids, shingles, skin tags, constipation, diarrhea, jock itch, hiccups, and post nasal drip. None of these dastardly ailments are to be sneezed at. I've experienced some of them myself, and it was not fun, but we shouldn't be scared out. of our wits by ads that cause us to miss sleep at night wor- rying about whether we might be attacked by some of them. If you have a uri- nary infection, you know it. If not, don't worry about it, and don't let advertisers try to take advantage of those fears. It is reported that an inquisitive high school student made up a peti- tion and got thousands of people to sign it demanding the government stop all use of the chemical dihydrogen monoxide. The petition correctly stated all of these terrible things this chemical can do. It can cause exces- sive sweating and vomiting. It is a major component of acid rain. In its gaseous state, it can cause terrible burns. Accidental inhala- tion of it can kill you. It contributes to erosion. It decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes. It has been found in the tumors of terminal cancer patients. The student got 86% of the people he approached to sign his petition. Only one recognized that this terrible chemical was ... water. How about that? Now, if you happen to be one of those compulsive hypochondriacs, you might like to call in for that cure- all treatment mentioned above. It takes all kinds.
