Transcript Letters 10 Montrose Voice / September 3,1982 Cancer Prevention Director Has Advice on AID Diseases From Peter W.A. Mansell. M.D. Associate director. M. D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute. Department of Cancer Preven tion As you know, there is a great deal of speculation as to the cause of the epidemic of Kaposi's sarcoma and infectious diseases. The anxiety and apprehension is certainly understandable but there is a great deal of misunderstanding and misinformation around as well. From the very beginning ofthe problem, about two years ago, it was felt that some infectious agent might be one ofthe causative factors. A virus called cytomegalovirus has always been and continues to be a prime suspect. However, there is no hard and fast evidence even yet to incriminate this, or any other virus or other infectious agent. Many of the features of the disease suggest that it may be transmitted from one individual to another but this is by no means proved and there is also evidence which would argue against that. Even if a virus were to be one of the causes there are almost certainly other factors at play as well, for instance possibly the influence of drugs, other infectious diseases and their treatment, and the immunological depression which is such a common feature ofthe syndrome, amongst others. The sobering truth at present is that no one has any final facts on the cause of the epidemic. Many people have their own private theories, some more plausible than others, but to base one's opinions or decisions relating to behavior on these theories would be wrong until the proof is definitely established. For the time being, therefore, until this proof arrives, I would like to suggest the following points which I have called "Grannie's Advice:" 1. Moderate your lifestyle, particularly with regard to avoiding multiple anonymous contacts. 2. Eat a proper balanced diet. 3. Get enough sleep. 4. Reduce exposure to drugs of any kind and avoid infections. 5. Remain calm and logical, do not allow every rumor and scare to send you into a panic. 6. Continue to enjoy life, but observe moderation in all things. I hope these few comments will shed some light. Remember, there are people in the community who are knowledgable and prepared to assist you all. Allow them to help.
