Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta IS - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Friday, February 9, 1973 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON SATURDAY, FEB. 10 Your birthday today: Social habits and standing seem stable enough thru vocational evolvements. Today's natives are practical, active, forceful, with a knack for getting public notice. ARIES (iMarcli 21-April 19): Any obligation you undertake is lasting and resistant to any changes. Thought of long-term effects should give you warning.  TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Being silly achieves nothing. Accept momentary disappointments in stride, there will be another day with better conditions. GEMINI (May 21-Junc 20): Nobody is quite sure how to take the humor you're in. You may think you've kept a secret, but somebody has sensed it and may talk. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Now comes a day of shifting LAWRENCE E. LAMB, M. D. Better food laws needed Dear Dr. Lamb - I was very pleased to see your article about informing the public. In my state, there is a regulation against using polyunsaturated margarine in restaurants, therefore, many like myself who are on a medically prescribed unsaturated fat diet have difficulty ordering low fat foods in restaurants. These limitations could be substantially reduced by permitting restaurants to use margarine products for cooking, dips and spreads. However, the dairy lobby is so strong in our state that its hold on enforcing the use of high priced spreads appears impossible to break. Our state was one of the last to permit colored margarine for sale and still has an old-fashioned milk commission which forces the consumer to pay dearly for milk. Dr. Lamb, how can we get the support from the American Medical Assn. to break this lobby for health's sake. I think you and the medical profession have a duty to lobby for such changes in the law. Your atti-cle was only a start. Dear Reader - I am including your letter in the column because it is often charged that the food manufacturers of polyunsaturated products have taken unfair advantage of the dairy industry by touting the benefits of polyunsaturated fats. The situation you describe tells the other side of the story. It is indeed very difficult for patients to obtain foods low in saturated fats because of a number of marketing practices. This is true even though their doctors have prescribed such diets for them in the interest of their health. I must agree that it seems unfair for an individual with a medical problem to be handicapped in carrying out his doctor's orders because of the practices of special interest groups. You shouldn't single out the dairy industry though. They have developed tasty low-fat and nonfat products that have really been a big help, such as fortified skim milk. Many other foods such as baked items are prepared with lots of fat, usually saturated. Then-there is the practice of using coconut oil in products (much higher in saturated fat than butter) and putting on the label "vegetable oil," which deceives the buyer.. Many coffee whiteners are touted as low in calories, yet they contain as many calories as cream and use coconut oil for fat. Of course, there is the other problem of protecting the consumer who wants and thinks he is getting butter in his food and instead is receiving a substitute. I believe most of these problems could be resolved by sensible rulings that require all foods to be properly labelled in sufficient detail to permit people to know what they are buying and restaurants should be required to provide essential information on foods served. This would go a long way toward helping peo.'e with diabetes, people with heart disease and other medical problems who need to know what they are eating. I firmly believe that the choice of what a person eats should be up to the individual and Ms doctor and that it is the consumer's right to know what he is getting. Legislation which prevents the consumer from knowing is hardly in the tradition of the fundamental freedoms of our country. influences for which your reactions vary over a wide range of mood. Make notes for later use. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Where you have done too much or reached too far, make some adjustment without delay, and have done with it. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Whatever seemed to be the regular, routine thing to do is like as not out cf the question for at least the timo being. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Any course you follow has its drawbacks, excludes something else you'd like, poses its own inconveniences. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): No particular problem arises today. Let things take their natural drift along the lines of least resistance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dcc. 21): Intuition should waken to lead you thru an adventurous day. Some of the going is against resistance. Have some fun. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Use your regular haunts as a port of departure and explore the arts and culture about you. Check ahead as you go. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Enterprises based on experience thrive, while arbitary moves in accord with theory miss their mark. Assume no specific success. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Being simple and direct in all expressions helps. Asking favors gets you nowhere, could spoil later opportuniities. 1373, The Cliicago Tribune llllllll ...............I GOREN ON BRIDGE by CHARLES H.
