Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thursday, Dtctmbtr 19, 1974 -The Family Lethbridge home economist says 'Substituting for sugar not practical' Breast screening pilot program gaining support VANCOUVER (CP) Two major organizations have an- nounced support for the proposed pilot program for breast screening in British Columbia. The B.C. Medical Association the Central Organization of Dcotors and the B.C. and Yukon Division of the Canadian Cancer Society have joined in urging the provincial government to finance a proposed breast screening program. The controlling screening study would include setting up clinics in Vancouver and Victoria in the first phase, expanding clinics to five or six larger B.C. communities in the second year, and finally, equipping travelling vans to carry clinic ser- vice to smaller communities The project earlier won support from Health Minister Dennis Cocke but was turned down by the provincial cabinet because there appeared to be no public support for such a program. At a news conference in Vancouver, both Dr. Hector S. Gillespie president of the BCMA, and Adrian Carrick, Ex- ecutive Director of the Provincial Cancer Society, urged the public to support the proposed program by writing to the health minister urging it be undertaken. Breast cancer is the leading cause of death among all female cancer patients and current statistics predict that one in 15 women in Canada have, or will develop, breast cancer some time in their lives. The proposed screening clinics, which initially would concentrate on high risk groups, would employ physical ex- amination, mammography examination of the breast by x- ray and perhaps thermography, a technique of picking up heat rays from the breast and translating them into a photographic image, and other possible sophisticated techni- ques The only well controlled study on breast screening one un- dertaken in New York involving women suggested that a screening program has the potential to reduce the morality by one third in the age group 45-64 JACKPOT BINGO This Thursday Evening, December 19th Sponsored by LadiM' Aid of SI. and St. Church STARTS P.M.

I By KATHIE MacLEAN Herald Staff Writer People going to buy honey, corn syrup or diet sweetners as sugars substitutes are only fool- ing themselves. There is no sub- stitute for sugar at least not in baking most cakes, candies or cookies. So says Sheila Nieman, home economist for the Canadian Western Natural Gas Company in Lethbridge, who has been ex- perimenting with sugar sub- stitutes in baking recipes. "In order to get the desired effect, we must stick with sugar." She explained that because sugar works as a tenderizer with flour, there can be no substitute "People can reduce the amount of sugar re- quired, but no lower than one cup of sugar to two cups flour. Anything less would result in a product with less volume, tough and much heavier However, in some baking goods, such as angel food cakes, chiffon and sponge cakes, sub- stitution woudln't be effective at all because such sweets depend on sugar for their cell structure. Ms. Nieman says even though the amount of sugar can be reduced in some recipes, most people wouldn't be happy with the taste. "If you can train yourself and your family to eat less sugar, then you're on your way "It's too bad more families can't get themselves away.from sugar with all the medical, den- tal and overweight problems these she adds Sucaryl, diet sweeteners and sweet 'n low all sugar sub- stitutes can be used effectively in beverages, puddings and preserves anything without a real texture. However, as far as substituting sugar with honey, molasses or corn syrup goes, "it just wouldn't be she says. Even though one cup of sugar equals one cup of hone (less three tablespoons of honey burns more readily than sugar, thus requiring a lower temperature. And, the end product is usually darker. Honey, in making candy, is not recommended. "When the sugar is broken down, you get a real bitter taste and who liked bitter Ms. Nieman says the only ad- vantage in using honey is that it absorbs moisture from the air and the product doesn't dry out as quickly. Molasses enhances the flavor of baked beans and gingerbreads, but "those recipes normally call for the use of molasses." One cup of sugar is equal to one and a third cups molasses, less a third cup of required liquid. Is corn syrup a suitable sugar substitute? Ms. Nieman says yes, "but you pay more in the end." One cup sugar equals one and a quarter'cups corn syrup, minus one third cup liquid from the recipe. So, substituting for sugar takes a lot of time and practice, says Ms. Nieman, and, in some recipes, like cookies, there isn't enough liquid to be subtracted. Many times the only liquid re- quired in cookie recipes is that of one egg." She claims there isn't enough nutritional value at stake to make the substitution of sugar beneficial. "Sugar has absolutely no nutritional value, honey has a little potassium and mollasses, some iron, but not enough to make any real difference." "So, for the time ti takes to alter recipes, it's just not prac- tical to substitute." She says for those people in- terested in low cal cooking, there are pamphlets of "tested recipes" using sucaryl which are available at the gas company, 410 Stafford Drive. "Baking products made with sucaryl have a different taste. Either you accept it or forget it." Union-run dental clinic built in mining town FARO, Y.T. (CP) Members of the United Steelworkers of America in this remote mining town have built the first union run dental clinic in the country. Local 1051's 400 members voted to use the proceeds of a 4 cent an hour check off to equip the clinic and hire a dentist. The union's investment is about so far. The steelworkers also will pay the rent. Members of the local volunteered their labor to convert a vacant store in the Faro shopp- ing centre to use as the clinic. Anvil Mining Corp. Ltd., which runs a large lead, zinc and silver mine near Faro, put up about for building materials for the clinic and for a trailer home for Faro's first dentist and his wife. Dr. Gordon Frey and Marie Frey moved to Faro earlier this year from London, Ont., where he had a practice and lectured at the University of Western Ontario. The chance to practice "good dentistry" and build a practice based on prevention, not just filling cavities, also attracted the Freys to Faro.

(AP) A 35-year-old woman, blinded after taking birth-control pills, has been awarded million in damages by a Superior Court jury Michelle Ahearn of San Jose was awarded damages this week after a seven-week trial before Judge Bruce Allen.

Lucky Stores, owner of the Gemco phar- macy where Mrs. Ahearn bought the pills, also was held liable. Mrs. Ahearn started taking the pills under a doctor's pre- scription in 1967. She testified that in February, 1969, she ex- perienced severe headaches and the onset of blindness. Doctors said she became totally blind within three days, and the condition was permanent. The blindness was caused by clots that blocked blood supply to the optic nerves, which died because of lack of blood and oxygen, doctors said The drug firm maintained the clots were caused by a streptococcus infection, not the pill. Harold Williams, a doctor and lawyer who represented the Ahearns, argued that the blindness resulted from use of the pill or a combination of the pill and the infection.

Phone 328-4080 327-2Z7Z until the couple moved to Faro they had not worked together. Each is earning less money in Faro but the challenge, they agree, makes up for it. Dr. Frey's arrangement with the steelworkers guarantees him a year for three and a half days a week to work for union members and their families. Non un- ion personnel may be included in the plan later. He can see other patients in his extra time. In resource communities such as Faro, dentists are scarce. In Canada there is one dentist on the average for every people. But in some northern communities, the ratio is one dentist for people when there is a dentist at all, a steelworker spokesman said. Under the Anvil Union Dental Plan, workers and their families, including all children at home, pay only 25 per cent of the cost of routine examinations, fillings and ex- tractions. The hourly check off provides the other 75 per cent. Complicated extractions and oral surgery are paid 50-50 by employees and the insurance plan.
