Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, August LETHBRIDGE Refined food cause of disease CHICAGO (AP) Overly refined foods are responsible for diseases of Western civilization ranging from heart ailments to appendicitis and varicose veins, says a study from South Africa. The research report, pub- lished in the August issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, connects the increase in a number of diseases to removal of in- digestible fibres from foods. The researchers also associ- ated refined foods with diver- ticular disease of the colon, gallbladders, hernia of the gastrointestinal tract, hemorrhoids of the colon and rectum, and obesity. The authors are Drs. D. P. Burkitt and N. S. Painter of London and Dr. A. R. P. Walker of Johannesburg. The diseases they cite began to appear more frequently in Western countries as flour and other carbohydrate foods be- came more refined, they report. In Africa, where coarsely- processed grains still make up the basic diet, such disease conditions are either ex- ceedingly rare or almost un- known, they said. "Many diseases common in. and characteristic of, modern Western civilization have been shown to be related to the amount of time necessary for the passage of intestinal content through the alimen- tary tract, and to the bulk and consistency of the authors say. "These factors have in turn been shown to be greatly in- fluenced by the fibre content of the diet and by the amount of cereal fibre in they say. Foods containing indigesti- ble fibres produce more bulk and pass through the body more quickly than more- refined foods. WHO studies contraception, birthrate Overpopulation still major issue PUBLIC BINGO 16 GAMES BLACKOUT (Played Until Won) LETHBRIDGE ELKS LODGE ROOM (Upitairt) EVERY THURS.-8 p.m. LONDON (Reuter) Lord riitchie-Calder, doyen of science writers, told a seminar on population policy: "You have to take the snigger out of family planning." He may have had a point a few years ago. But today, particularly in Asia with its teeming population, family planning in the shape of contraception is nobody's joke. It's a deadly serious, vitally important business. And despite all the efforts of governments and family planning associations to promote the condom, the coil, sterilization or the pill, it looks like a losing battle as far as population statistics are concerned. The International Planned Parenthood Federation says devices and propaganda are not enough by themselves to contain the world's population boom. Socio-economic changes, an updating of centuries-old cultural traditions and positive population policies by governments are es- sential too. But without the work of family planning associations the outlook would be even more desperate. And they can certainly claim, despite Lord Ritchie-Calder's assertion, that they have succeeded to a large extent in making con- traceptives respectable. A bortion still common Nevertheless, by far the most common form of family planning today is not contraception at all but abortion, particularly in the Communist world. Researchers constantly look for better, simpler methods of contraception and sterilization for male and female. Probably the most significant recent develop- ment in the field of pregnancy prevention is the increased attention being given to a technique which could be said, in a sense, to be a compromise between contraception and abortion. It is a simple syringe for evacuating the tion aspiration" is the usual term. In the United States, women's libbers have tended to champion the technique. Its big advantages are that it can be administered early on in soon as a woman's period is late, in fact, which does not necessarily mean she is and that it can be done by a friend without medical train- ing. Most doctors are dubious about the idea of non-qualified people handling the technique, mainly for reasons of hygiene, for example. Technique questioned There are also ethical questions. Sir John Peel, the Queen's former gynecologist and one of the most eminent men in his field, said recently: "I find it very difficult to accept the concept of treating a (menstrual attempting a diagnosis." He cited U.S. figures indicating that in something like 50 per cent of cases, suction aspiration proved to be un- necessary, but conceded that the risk factor seemed to be extremely low and that it could be especially useful in high-birthrate countries. Women's lib has also helped focus new attention on the role of men in responsible parenthood. Why should it be the woman who has to take pills, with their possible harmful side-effects (although a major study soon to be published is understood to acquit the pill of most Men don't have to use coils or diaphragms either and are spared abortion. Reflecting the new mood is a resurgence in the pop- ularity of that oldest of male methods of contraception, CASH BINGO ST.

War goes on ISTANBUL (AP) When her mother persuaded Ismail Arduc's wife to leave him, Ismail Arduc distributed 1.000 handbills advertising the opening of a new brothel at his mother in law's address. As visitors began to arrive, she complained to police, who arrested Arduc on a charge of defamation of character. MUCH REFINED It takes from 30 to 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of maple syrup. The LARGEST ASSORTMENT of imported styles in LETHBRIDGE the condom, long sitgmatized by its association with illicit sex. For the man who does not want to risk permanently abandoning his ability to father offspring, since va- sectomy is at present almost always irreversible, the con- dom remains the only effective male contraceptive. Somewhere oetween 19 and 25 million couples are esti- mated to use it. In Japan, nearly three of every four couples using contraceptives prefer condoms. There is also a new approach to marketing and promotion: bright- ly colored (yet still rather anonymous) packs, exciting brand names and an assortment of colors, shapes and tex- tures for the product itself. But it may be that the condom is reaching or has al- ready reached the zenith of its popularity. What alterna- tives are on the horizon? A recent report for the World Health Organization by Drs. Gordon Perkin and Rodney P. Shearman concluded that "it is almost certain that a simple, safe highly effec- tive chemical approach to the termination of pregnancy will not be available for general use within the next five years." Study other methods There is still some question about the new "medicated" intra-uterine devices which release small, controlled amounts of active substances such as copper or progeste- rone into the womb to prevent fertilization. These seem to be an advance over the inert coils or loops but they must be replaced every year or two. Injectable contraceptives are under intensive study and pilot projects are under way. A single injection offers pro- tection against pregnancy for three or more months. But some women experience menstrual irregularity and there may be an unwanted delay in the return of fertility. Another idea is the implanted contraceptive, placed un- der the skin, or plastic devices which release medication into the vagina or the cervical canal. Large-scale clinical studies of the implant are in progress and it appears it can provide effective fertility control for at least one year by releasing known amounts of the contraceptive drug into the body every day. Finding a new, chemical means of male contraception has proved as elusive as it is theoretically attractive. But recent small-scale clinical studies suggest it might be feasible to develop a male pill which, by combining two types of hormone, would suppress sperm production with- out inhibiting sex drive or potency. Vasectomy has become an outpatient procedure in many parts of the world, taking less than 10 minutes and requiring only local anesthetic. Now the search is on for ways of making the procedure reversible by using clips, plugs, valves or other removable gadgets or blockages instead of cutting the vas. "Several of these may become available for general use." the WHO report said. Researchers still report only tentative progress to- wards developing a reliable post-coital or "morning after" pill. Perhaps the biggest breakthrough would be a safe, ef- fective vaccine against pregnancy and latest laboratory studies indicate that this goal is a distinct possibility. One of the most promising lines of approach is immuni- zation of the woman against hormones present only dur- ing pregnancy but several years of intensive research and animal trials lie ahead before the inoculation can even be attempted on humans.

Restricting women to the "cradle and ladle" role de- prived these countries of in- valuable talent and economic output, they said at a forum of non-governmental groups meeting here in conjunction with the United Nations World Population Conference. Rounaq Jahan, a social scientist from Bangladesh, said that women in rural areas of developing states must take up professions beyond "just making dolls and handkerchiefs." She said her country and others of the Third World are not yet ready for militant liberation such as in the women s movements West. The role of women has be- come a growing side issue of the conference.

It was like being in a hollow hole in the ground with no way to get out. But I DID get out and it was religion that saved me. I'm 17 now and I believe in miracles. One morning, a few months ago, 1 woke and decided to give my life to Jesus. That feeling was so strong it knocked out my craze for junk. I know this sounds impossible, but it's true. Please print my letter, Ann. It might help somebody who is back where I was four years ago. Free At Last Dear Free: You're 17 and off the junk after four years? This means you were 13 when you started hard to believe, but I DO believe it, because I've heard from the people who work at drug centers that some kids who come in for treatment are still in junior high school. I've also received many letters from the kids themselves and their parents. If you were saved by Jesus, I say, I'm for whatever does the job.
