.2 , February 11, 2016 Golden Valley News Page 3 Coughing related to smoking can contribute to hernias What is a hernia? The abdominal wall wraps around the center of your body, ex- tending from below the rib cage to the pelvis. This wall keeps intestines and other organs in the abdominal cavity. When tissue pushes through a weak spot in a surrounding muscle or connective tissue, a hernia can occur. There are several types of her- nias related to the abdominal area, such as a hiatal hernia that develops near the upper part of the stomach or the umbilical hernia that develops near the belly button. Types of her- nias are generally named for their lo- cation. Hernias occur more often in men than women and can occur at any age, even in infants. What is an inguinal hernia? This type of hernia, which occurs in the part of the abdominal wall known as the inguinal canal, is the most commonly occurring type of hernia. It appears as a bulge in the groin or scrotum and is more com- mon in men because the inguinal canal is where a man's testicles must descend before birth. The internal in- guinal ring that is left may not seal properly. If so, a hernia can develop. What are symptoms of a her- nia? The primary symptom is a bulge in the area where the hernia is lo- cated. This bulge may form slowly Healthy Advice By Nicolas Hayes, D.O. N. D. Matters By Lloyd Omdahl over a period of weeks or months. Depending on the location, a bulge may not be noticeable until the her- nia is more advanced. Some people have pain, others don't. You might also notice swelling, a feeling of heaviness, tugging or burning. Synqptoms are likely to improve when you are not physically active or are lying down. What causes a hernia? Many factors can contribute to formation of a hernia. Inguinal her- nias. for instance, may be related to birth weaknesses while another ab- dominal hernia may be caused by factors related to aging. Poor lifestyle practices, such as frequent lifting or being overweight, also con- tribute to hernia development. What can I do to avoid getting a hernia? Risk factors that you have the power to change include maintaining a healthy weight, learning to lift properly and developing strong ab- dominal muscles with a proper diet and regular exercise.

Many folks in the secular world share Merritt's disbelief at the gap between what evangelical s preach and what Donald Trump prac- tices, As an evan- gelical Christian, I am more embar- rassed than mysti- fied. Another explanation revolves around the anger of evangelical Christians over same-sex marriage, abortion, separation of church and state, and a host of other social is- sues. But the Bible expects more from Christians than anger. The Apostle Paul warned that the anger of man does not achieve the righteous- ness of God. But Paul notwithstanding, Chris- tians are angry, very angry, even though many of them believe that God controls all human activity. Ap- parently, the disgruntled don't like the way He is running things. So they are angry. To vent this anger, the Trump evangelicals are attracted to someone who will strike out against society and the secular government. With Trump, they can vent their anger by proxy without being exposed. To speculate further. Are Trump supporters the less-educated evan- gelicals frustrated in jobs that will not HOW TO SHARE YOUR VIEWS We welcome letters to the editor concerning issues of area interest or regarding stories and editorials that have been published.

However, Stanley Greenberg, au- thor of America Ascendent, claims that Trump supporters have reason to be upset because the economic changes have left the public angry. The stone is true about the general frustration over illegal immigration and the idea of giving illegal immi- grants a short-cut to citizenship. And this is being aggravated by the pro- posal to absorb refugees from the Mideast. Is this a cutting issue with Trump evangelicals? Here again, we would have to as- sume that Trump evangelicals are more concerned about immigration than other Republicans. We have no facts so all we can do is theorize. A recent Gallup poll reported that race relations and terrorism are rated as the most pressing national prob- lems. In many parts of the evangeli- cal South, the Civil War is still being fought and latent racism still haunts Southern society. Racism has subsided in the South, but police shootings, protest marches, diversity conflicts and Oscar awards have all accentuated racial tensions, Is it possible that the Trump evangelicals are among those who feel most threatened by the economy, immigration, and race'? While political observers attribute evangelical Trump support to reli- gious beliefs, perhaps this support among peripheral evangelicals is based on secular considerations and has nothing to do with religion. After all, most evangelicals in America are as secular as everyone else.
