But Many recipes still in use were developed in the Days when All flour was sifted a and the measurements Are for sifted flour. Since there is More flour in a cup of a sifted than in a cup of sifted flour food specialists in the . say you must Effir sift before measuring or adjust the measurement to get the right amount of flour for these older recipes. To adjust a measurement from sifted to a sifted flour simply spoon rime into the dry measuring cup level it off and remove two level tablespoonfuls. Researchers compared sifted flour and a sifted flour in cakes and muffins. When the volume of a sifted flour was adjusted by removing two level tablespoonfuls from a measured cup of flour no difference was noted in the Quality of the baked products made with sifted and a sifted flour. However when a sifted flour was used without adjustment in volume muffins and cakes were less acceptable than products made with the sifted flour.

Apr coronary heart disease a the Bane of Middle age men May Well have its beginnings in teen agers and three Colorado Springs physicians Hope to find out. But they May have a Long wait for results because the study might take As Long As a Quarter Century. The three doctor shave recruited 500 Colorado Springs High school boys to take part in the project. The physicians Are or. Ralph w. Adams and or. John Hays 1961 Cadillac Coupe 2 tone full Power s3495�� 1961 Chevrolet Corvair 2 or. 2 tone Power Glide one owner Sharp $1495�� . Eddington inc. 239 main St. Bennington it. Both heart specialists and or. John Rice a pathologist. The project is aimed at finding the cause of arteriosclerosis a hardening of the arteries which interferes with the flow of blood and causes heart failure and coronary heart attacks. Quot we Are convinced Quot says or. Adams Quot that Artero sclerosis and coronary heart disease in Middle age men really starts when they re what causes it fats probably. Or. Adams says that triglycerides a or various types of fats including cholesterol a Are carried in the bloodstream. As we grow older or. Adams says the arteries and other blood vessels begin to Harden crack and grow rougher. Then these fatty substances Start to cling to the cracks in the Walls of the blood vessels and interfere with the flow of blood. Adams believes that by Middle age most americans have some degree of arteriosclerosis. Quot but we d like to be Able to detect it before a heart attack occurs. Right now we re just treating the end results we re making no headway in under the Colorado Springs project financed by a $10,500 Grant from the Colorado heart association a the three physicians will try to determine the Normal level of fats in the boys bloodstream. Then they will Check those with aug real amounts of fats and pos Fwy devise a Means for predicting which will get arteriosclerosis. Quot for the moment we re disregarding females Quot says Adams Quot because they have some substance in their blood that protects them from arteriosclerosis until after menopause. With women coronary heart disease is definitely one of late life but by the time they re in their 60j and 70s they surpass men in the amount of arteriosclerosis they the three physicians obtained cooperation for the project from a local school District. Sophomore boys from two High schools Are involved. Permission was also obtained from the youths parents. The first phase was to Check the physical characteristics of All the boys a including height weight blood pressure pulse heartbeat and skin fold thickness. The skin fold test is a Means of determining the amount of fat they have on their bodies. All were also asked about their participation in sports. Then technicians took a few drops of blood from the boys for analysis. The blood examinations says Rice will show the quantities and types of fats being carried in their bloodstream. Quot then if we can find an abnormal group Quot Adams says Quot we will Check them carefully and possibly try to correlate this with their family history physical characteristics and Portia is determine which will be susceptible to coronary heart All the boys will be checked again in two years. During this period similar tests will be run on other High school sophomores until 2,000 test results Are on hand. Quot then Quot says Adams Quot Well follow the abnormal youths for perhaps 25 years. If we find that one group develops the disease More than others we will possibly be Able to predict it in Advance and treat Adams says that if it s found that diet is the recommended treatment for preventing coronary heart disease another method will have to be found. Quot you can to Stop kids from a Normal life for 25 years Quot he says. Quot How can you Tell a teenager he can no longer Gorge himself on hamburgers and malts no if diet is the answer Well have to find another but Adams does believe that diet plays an important part in development of arteriosclerosis. Quot we understand that indians who still live on reservations in much the same circumstances As did their ancestors have a very Low incidence of coronary heart disease Quot he says. Adams Hopes to be Able to study a group of indians to see if this theory is True but so far Adams says they have received no cooperation from the . Public health service which handles Indian health problems. Workshop.
