Chiropractic Health Hints

WITH DR. STANLEY LEVINE, D.C.

WHIPLASH A JOB FOR
THE DOCTOR OF CHIROPRACTIC

When one automobile is struck by another, thousands of pounds of
force are exerted upon the neck and spine of the passengers. The head,
which is very heavy compared to the neck, is thrust toward the hitting
vehicle. The muscles then stretch and react with a violent spasm in the
opposite direction.
The painful result is injury to the muscles, ligaments, nerves and on
occasion, broken bones. A wreck victim isn't all right if he or she does
not have any broken bones. When a bone is broken it heals with bone
and becomes stronger than before. Soft tissue, however, heals as scar tissue,
DR. LEVINE
which is weaker and less resistant.
Just like a bruised apple, scar tissue NEVER RETURNS TO ITS ORIGINAL STATE. Even
a minor automobile accident can have major ill effects on your health. It may be weeks, months,
or even years before the problem shows itself. But, by then, it may be too late to prevent your
greatest loss — your health. Chiropractic will usually provide rapid relief from the symptoms of
accident distress by employing comfortable corrective measures. Have your spine checked by experts.

"doctor's helplessness and a
father's despair as this
15-year-old dies of head in-
juries received in a riot."
But the story wasn't true.
According to the pathology
records of Rami's autopsy and
other medical records, the boy
died of a cerebal hemorrhage
caused by high blood
pressure. He had been sick for
more than a year.
Another example is the
story of Amjad Hussein
Jabril, a 14-year-old Pales-
tinian-American. He was
found shot to death in El-
Bireh on the West Bank last
August. CNN quoted Pales-
tinians charging that the boy
had been lost with Israeli
soldiers. When his body was
found, it showed signs of tor-
ture and mutilation.
Despite the army's denials,
the State Department pres-
sured the Israeli government
into a formal investigation.
The family refused to turn
over the corpse, so the army
exhumed the body. An in-
dependent Scottish patholo-
gist selected by the boy's
family performed an autopsy.
No evidence was found of any
torture whatsoever. Amjad
had died of a single gunshot
wound in the back — from a
low-calibre, low velocity gun.
The Israeli Army regularly
uses military high-velocity ri-
fle bullets and high-calibre
pistols.
The autopsy records for
these and other Palestinian
killings are kept in the In-
stitute of Forensic Medicine,
in Jaffa. After reviewing a
number of reports, I asked its
director Dr. Yehuda Hiss
whether any American re-
porters had ever come to in-
terview him. "None." Even
human rights organizations
have not bothered to ask for
his files. The International
League for Human Rights
sent two lawyers to interview
him on an investigation into
Israeli brutality. But, Dr. Hiss
said, "they came without any
lists or names and left after
an hour."
The networks prefer to get
at truth by more dubious
means. In the past year they
have handed out at least 15,
and perhaps as many as 25,
Super-8 video cameras to
Palestinians. These "camera-
men" make their videos on
their own and provide the net-
works with footage of riots,
strikes and funerals. The
cameras, according to a senior
American television news-
man "were distributed to the
Palestinians on the basis that
they bring us action. But I
would be lying to you if I
didn't admit that the whole
thing makes me feel uneasy."
Asked about the practice of

providing videocameras to
Palestinians, ABC spokes-
man Scott Richardson said,
"ABC will not confirm or
deny that we give out
cameras to Palestinians.
However our general policy in
the world is that from time to
time, we have given out
equipment to local citizens for
safety, legal or political con-
siderations."
In fact, except for Eastern
Europe — where fewer than
five cameras were given out
and each for only a limited
period — the networks have
distributed cameras nowhere
else in the world.
Because few if any Ameri-
can television journalists
speak Arabic, it is only
natural that the networks

In the 150 stories
filed by U.S.
networks from the
West Bank last
year, only half a
dozen focused on
Palestinians killing
other Palestinians.

seek out Palestinians who
speak the language and who
can help supply stories. But
according to Israeli court
records, many of the Pales-
tinian journalists on staff or
consultants to the American
networks are active par-
ticipants in the intifada.
There is absolutely no way to
insure the authenticity of
what is filmed nor is there
any way to stop the cameras
from being used as a tool to
mobilize a demonstration.
"Cameras don't lie" is the
familiar refrain issued by
reporters when confronted
with criticism about their
coverage. And there is no
disputing that cameras have
shown Israeli soldiers vicious-
ly beating and shooting
Palestinians, sometimes
without justification.
ABC News broadcast in
December footage showing
Israeli troops wounding
"Palestinian stone throwers"
without firing warning shots,
contradicting the Israeli Ar-
my's version of the episode.
The Israeli Army later
suspended the troops.
Yet the networks also
realize that cameras can
distort events. It is not well-
known, but each network has
strict guidelines that are sup-
posed to guide the use of
cameras in civil disturbances.
CBS's Production Stan-
dards, which are typical of
those used by every network,
say that if "your presence is
clearly inspiring, continuing
or intensifying a dangerous,
