Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - June 18, 1964, Mason City, Iowa Theyre fat and happy Low heart attack rate By EARL UftELL New York Herald Tribune Newt Service ROSETQ Cascuno ST looks like a candidate for a heart attack At 210 pounds hes overweight He has prob ably got a blood cholesterol level1 higher than Sputnik I And hes the right age 60 But as deputy chief of police in this town of 1630 Americans of Italian descent Casciano couldnt care less He puffs his pipe puts on a big smile for any outlander who asks personal questions and if you should in vite him for a snack of fned peppers proscuito spaghetti and steak he says Boy v eating thats my line Yet Casciano knows because a team of scientists fromOkla homa told him that the heart attack rate in Roseto is far be low that of other towns nearby So presumably his chances of coming down with an attack are too At least the whole town and one of the doctors who serve the town Dr Nicholas Romano be lieve it They believe it down at Maryrs Luncheonette when you can get a pizza or a provolone sandwhich almost any time They believe it at the town grocery where they stack the bread the olive oil the proscuito people believe they haw a healthy life even though most of vthe men of middle age are overweight work in m an y sedentary occupations and em brace dining as Rosetos un organized sport It all came out in the Journal of the American Medical As sociation recently Dr Stewart Wolf and his associates of the University of Oklahoma Medical School d iscovered that the Rosetons male and female have onefourth to onethird of the heart attack rate of the sur rounding towns Maybe scientists suggested the Rosetons owe their appar ent health to the sensible way of life because if the cholesterol and overweight theories of heart disease were right the men in town should be keeling The newspaper that makes all North Iowa ns neighbors Edition VOL m CITY IOWA THURSDAY JUNE II 1H4 ClOe a of Two One Auoclatcd Pnu Full NO in

other than heart attack you get a rate not much less than that in America as a whole Furthermore it is certainly no less than for other Italians in America and much higher than for Italians m Italy The argument again hints on diet Diets high in animal fat seem to induce heart attack Diets high in vegetable and fish oils seem protect against heart attack Italians in Amer ica eat more meat than Italians in Italy so they have a higher heart attack rate or so it seems The only way to solve the problem for Roseto would be to study the whole population going forward in time checking their food their cholesterol levels their way of life Uosetons are divided as to whetherits a question of food or the lack of tension of modem Me If you visit Mayor George Giaquinto you find a busy man operating
