12 The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Men., Mar. 25, 1971 For Better Health One Doctor Calls Wine an Important Medical Agent By Dr. S.L. Andelman Wine and health are topics nowadays. In fact onej noted doctor has called wine "the most important medic agent in continuous use throug out the history of man." If it's that important, it cer tainly deserves a few column devoted to discussing the clinic First of a two-part series. value of wine in promoth health and preventing disease. Dr. Salvatore P. Lucia, tl doctor quoted above, is a emeritus professor of huma nutrition at the University California who urges doctors take to heart the public's co cern for more natural foods an medicines. He says that's wher table wine "can play an impo tant role." Relaxation Dr. Lucia says the ingredienl in wine make it a gentle vehic] for inducing relaxation and ten pering the tensions of everyda life. In fact, "there is evidenc that the regular daily additio of wine to meals may reduc the incidence of arteriosclerosis in man by as much as 50 per cent." Bioflavonoids in wine ar believed J-esponsible for reduc ing cholesterol. Minerals In the area of nutrition, win contributes more than jus empty calories to the diet.

How do you explain that even in 1935 bidding." Oswald: "Ely blamed Jo but I blame Ely. If he had just bid three diamonds Jo would have recognized the continuing force and bid. However, when he jumped to four Jo decided that there was something wrong with the whole thing arid passed. For the record, Ely made six."

Answer Tomorrow For the; in Paints It has workable amounts of the B-group vitamins and of vi- tamin P and generally contains utiiizable amounts of the more important minerals, including potassium, magnesium, sodium, calcium, iron and phosphorus. Dr. Lucia says wine is also an excellent source of iron in its easily absorbed ferrous form. As Dr. Lucia says: "Wine, in- telligently used, is important in maintaining the body at its maximum competence: It acts mundanely and poetically as a food and a medicine, and as a balm for the trials and tribula- tions of man, who doggedly pur- sues his finite existence in an infinite, turbulent, yet still hope- ful world." Dr. Lucia's view has been held by famous physicians in history. Louis Pasteur be- lieved wine- to be the most healthful, most hygienic dietary beverage of all. And' Hip- pocrates prescribed wine during convalescence and as a cooling agent in fever. In a future column we'll dis euss a report on the ways wine helps the elderly. 20 YEARS AGO An official announcement said the Egyptian military council would step down July 24 and the people would elect their own govern- ment. None of Contaminated Fowls Reached Public JACKSON, Miss. (AP) Leaders of broiler industry say the millions of con- taminated chickens which the federal government has ordered destroyed are still alive and none has reached consumers. They promised their coopera- tion in destroying the contami- nated birds. The government has estimat- ed that 22 million chickens are involved, but the industry says lie total is below eight million. At a meeting Sunday, lliC; jroiler industry leaders said hat they have found and stopped the source of the con- tamination. They said extensive federal and industry testing was under way on all chicken flocks in the state. EPA Refusal! The federal Environmental Protection Agency refused Sat- urday to allow the marketing of chickens of three poultry raisers after extensive testing showed birds from their flocks con- tained unacceptable levels of the pesticide dieldrin, known to cause cancer on prolonged ex- posure. T. H. Ktheridge, board chair- man of the National Broilers Assn., said the contamination source was pinpointed as an ingredient in chicken feed. Poultry-raiser H. F. McCarty said that, once the problem was found, all affected chickens were placed on "clean feed" and the birds involved Jere isolated. "-Million Loss McCarty said his loss, not including time and potential market profits, would be about million. Officials of Morton Broilers said they faced a simi- lar loss. The promised cooperation of the poultry Industry leaders came after the EPA turned down their request to raise the federal standard limiting the amount of pesticide residue in the chickens' fatty tissues. They claimed the current diel- drin cutoff level was well below minimum standards and the slaughtering process would re- move most of the tissue where the chemical was concentrated. After the EPA decision, how- ever, Etheridge said: "Our first priority is the consumer and we will protect him at all cost." Extra care in engineering...it makes a big difference in small cars. Have you ever wondered why most claims never mention the small cars from Chrysler Corporation? Only Chrysler Corporation reports its own small-cargas mileage against competition! It's one thing to test your cars, by themselves, under ideal quite another'thing to ask an independent testing organization to test your cars under normal driving conditions, with non-professional drivers, through traffic and on the include your competition. That's what the United States Auto Club did for Chrysler Corporation; and the results really mean something. First, while some may get more and some less, these results give you some idea of the kind of mileage you--can expect to get while driving sensibly either in the city or on the highway.' Second, they tell you how the small cars from Chrysler Corporation Dart and Plymouth up against the competition. Read these results. The more you know about Chrysler Corporation's engineering features, the more intelligent .choice you'll be able to make when buying a small car.
