Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 20, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THt ntiuiku Appalling nutrition habits uncovered by professional VICTORIA Pat Wol- czuk admits she can frequently be found nosing around other people's shopping carts at su- permarkets but it is all very professional. The reason for the snooping is that the 26-year-old brunette is British Columbia's only government nutritionist and therefore is interested in the quality of the food people buy. appalls me sometimes to look in other people's shopping Miss s_aid in an interview. just don't give it enough considera- She rattles off names of brands which are popular but lack nutritional value or are more expensive than the -health- ier product.

The New Democratic as part of its concern for pre- ventive is hiring two more nutrition experts and one dietitian this year. Miss Wolczuk's job calls for her to be a consultant to the 18 health units throughout the province and their 750 physi- dental officers and other staff. ADVISES TEACHERS She also works closely with the school advising teachers on the best approaches to bringing nutrition into the classroom.

Even being star attraction in the photographer's camera doesn't bother this 'bulldog. The homemaker By MARILYN C. TATEM District Home Economist How safe are your It is preserving time again. Fresh fruits have been arriving on the market and the gardens are coming along nicely. Each year at this time I receive a large number of calls concern- ing canning and freezing of foods. Before you are up to your el- bows in freezer bags and take a close look at your preserving meth- ods. One thing which amazes me is that so many people still freshness built in Flavor and freshness have kept Nabob Canada's leading coffee for gener- ations. And you get the same fine quality pound after pound after pound. These qualities are guaranteed by Nabob's airtight poly liner in every package. When you serve you're serving the most popular coffee in the West and doing right by your budget because no other coffee delivers so much for your money. Buy Nabob. can meats and low acid vege- tables such as peas and in a boiling water bath. This may have been a recom- mended practise way back but is no longer so. There have been enough incidences of food poisonicgs as a result of these practices that home econ- omists have been recommend- ing a pressure cooker be used. The reason is that spore heat resistant organ- isms may be present. These can be destroyed by heating the food to temperatures higher than boiling and this can only be accomplished by using a temperature above 212 F. these organisms do not seem to function in a high acid medium in foods such as fruits and high acid vegetables such as tomatoes. These can safely be processed in a boil- ing water bath. The open kettle in which the food is cooked in an open kettle and than transfer- red to sterile jars and sealed is definitely not recommended for low acid vegetables. There is the additional danger of con- tamination if and spoons are not sterile or if the liquid does not quite reach the top of the jar. A layer of un- sterile air is present and could cause spoilage. Success with the open kettle canning is large- ly a matter of sanitation and of using the method only for those foods which can be satisfactor- ily canned by boiling tempera- ture. I know at this point many of you will be saying to your- selves canned vegetables for years this way and nothing has but it just takes one time and sometimes the food may look perfectly safe and still contain poisonous or- ganisms. The other point I would like to discuss at this tune concerns freezing. The rumour is circu- lating again this year that it is not necessary to blanch vege- tables before freezing. Studies have been done regarding this and with very few exceptions the quality of the food is main- tained best if the food has bsen blanched for the recommended length of time. Freezing alone does not stop the action of mi- cro organisms and the enzymes which cause food to spoil. It jusi slows it down to a mini- mum. In fruits and high acid vegetables such as tomatoes this is not a problem but in most vegetables there is quite a marked deterioration in the flavor and colour. you have spent so much time and effort to a good quality product why risk obtaining a poor result by skip- ping one step in the preparation of the food for freezing.

But are not exactly that way. Prime Minister Golda Meir is e only woman in the 15-mem- r cabinet. In a Parliament of 120 there are eight women. There are no women on the Supreme Court or at the top of the military hierarchy. Many women here feel that they have played a diminishing role in the last 25 years. During the early days of the new up to and in- cluding Israel's struggle for in- women worked alongside men. They helped set up villages in malaria-infested swamps. They smuggled arms for the underground. They shared in decisions during cru- cial political periods. If there was a turning point in this state of it came after when Israel became a country. WOMEN LAG Esther a former am- is among those who feel that women today in Israel lag far behind especially in politics. She lays the blame to a large extent on women themselves. Miss who as am- bassador to Denmark was a senior now is running For a seat in the Knesset in the elections sched- uled for Oct. 30. She supports demands by some members of the Labor party for women to be guaran- teed at least 25 per cent of the party's representation in Parlia- ment. But Miss Herlitz admits that young women have little inter- est in political careers. Of the dozen parties with rep- resentation in the outgoing only three have women parliamentarians. ACTIVE IN SCIENCE In other Israeli women have made great strides. In the Weizman Institute of the Technion Institute of Technology and the Hebrew women have reached the top of the ladder in such fields as nuclear cybernetics or construction technology. Even more prominent Is the role played by women in the le- gal profession. A visit to the busy courthouse in Tel Avivican show dozens of women lawyers in black both prosecuting and defending. On the bench of the district court in Tel out of a total of 25 judges are women. Brainwashing to replace drunk fines TORONTO The pro- vincial government is being urged to consider abandoning fines and prison terms for drunken drivers and substitut- ing a course. The Ontario Motor League asked the ministry of trans- portation and communications last week to study the Phoe- nix on a psy- chological treatment of con- victed drunk drivers in the Ari- zona city. and fines just don't said William Le director of public and government relations for the Toronto branch of the motor club. drivers will have to come face to face with their style of He said the program Is kind of in which drivers are given bar- Mr. Le Sauvage said a film included in the treatment con- tains scenes of highway deaths caused by drunken driving. The Addiction Research Foun- dation said in Toronto it will also hold informal talks soon with government officials in the hope of setting up a pilot proj- ect before the end of the year.
