It botbcil in take advt Smokes and drinks may be bad mix United Press International CLEVELAND — Cigarette smokers who become chronic drinkers may increase their chances of developing throat and nose cancer, said a Case Western Reserve University re searcher. C. David McCoy, an assistant professor of epidemiology at CWRU’s School of Medicine, said Friday his findings indicate a strong correlation between heavy consumption of alcoholic beverages in smokers and an in crease in cancers in the trachea and nasal cavities. Data as early as the 1950s in dicates people who had head and neck cancers tended to be heavy tobacco and alcohol users, he said. “Since that time, studies, in cluding our own, indicate there is a slight increase of cancer of the larynx in smokers who are non-drinkers,” McCoy said. “However, the same rate of smoking in conjunction with alcohol consumption dramatic ally enhances the risk. “The same trend is found with oral-cavity and esophageal cancers.” He emphasized the increase is not as dramatic in smokers who consume one or two drinks per day. In the Case study, hamsters were given injections of cancer-* causing substances found in tobacco and tobacco smoke. The hamsters that also received etha^ nol showed a dramatic increase in both tracheal and nasal-cavity tumors. “From our studies in hams ters, the increase due to alcohol consumption is in the range of 40 to 70 percent,” he said. .11 icre poo:: ate for fu idioactivei rtment ol Iso sugge ^ bid fo alter ho* thev are Missourians offered dioxin poisoning tests eagan sf 7 establii United Press International TIMES BEACH, Mo.— The |tate of Missouri plans to offer ee testing for people com plaining of skin rashes, the first |ign of dioxin poisoning. I “We’ve had a lot of interest Jxom people who call up and say, ‘1 have this rash’ or I once had tins rash,”’ said Dave Forney of .the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta. I “This is based upon the fact that about the only symptom when first exposed to dioxin is fprloracne (a severe skin rash),” |:he said. I The free testing will be con- Bucted in Kirkwood, Mo., in ^February. I The CDC recommended in JPecember that Times Beach- lo. be evacuated after soil test ing showed high levels of dioxin lontamination. I Most of the 2,40,0 residents of ■imes Beach have stayed away *;since the recommendation was jnade, and a three-member de legation went to Washington ®his week to seek a federal buy- Sout pf homes and businesses. The delegation included the ngF Odd: j,Rev. Larry Rice, head of the Jew Life Evangelistic Center, a private relief agency in down- Kown St. Louis; Times Beach (Alderwoman Susan Johnson i.i/w liand former Mayor Gary SPverton. They met with Lee M. Tho- “I don’t want to overprom- ise,” said Thomas, who heads President Reagan’s task force formed to look into the flooding and dioxin contamination at Times Beach. Thomas said money from a hazardous waste “superfund” eventually might be used to pay for a temporary or permament relocation of Times Beach resi dents. But he said a “lot of steps” had to be overcome before that could happen. The fund is a pool of money financed by a tax on chemical stocks. The $16 billion fund is to be used for cleanup of hazar dous waste sites. TS-O Prescriptions Filled Glasses Repaired BRYAN 216 N.
