Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 25, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuetday, February 25, 1975 Canada nation of pill poppers By BILL COULTHARD OTTAWA (CP) The im- age of Canadians as a nation of pillpoppers was reinforced Monday with the release by. Health Minister Marc Lalonde of a preliminary report on the use of non-prescription drugs. The report, based on a mail survey of about homes comprising about Cana- dians, showed that almost half the respondents used at least one drug daily during the month before they filled out the questionnaire. Vitamins, however, ac- counted for the vast propor- tion of this usage, with 37 per cent of respondents reporting daily use. But in addition, about seven per cent said they had used cold medicines daily and about 10 per cent had used cough medicines daily during the month. The remaining drug products had been used daily by less than five per cent of the population. Over the year preceding the survey, 96 per cent of the sam- ple said they had used at least one remedy type, and two- thirds reported using three or more. The nine remedy types in the survey included such drugs as laxatives, pain relievers, cough and cold remedies, night-time sedatives and vitamins. The survey showeH about five per cent of respondents used pain relievers on a daily basis in the month preceding the questionnaire. Of these, 15 per cent said they used a prescription medicine, 10 per cent used products advertised only to the health professions but sold without prescription, 66 per cent used proprietary medicines and nine per cent did not specify the type. Daily usage of pain relievers was reported even among children. Children, women, the affluent and the better educated were the heaviest users of vitamins. The use of cough medicine in Quebec was "significantly than the national average, while the Maritimes, Manitoba and Saskatchewan were slightly lower in over-all remedy usage. The study began last year and further studies now are being conducted on drug-use patterns and the reasons for them. A second phase of the study, "designed to expand and validate statistically" the knowledge gained in the first phase is to begin soon. It will also investigate the methods of promotion of non- prescription drugs and ex- amine the impact of the promotion. Henry Ford arrested SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) Henry Ford II, chief executive officer of the Ford Motor Co., was arrested for investigation of drunk driving during the weekend, police authorities said Monday. Ford, 57, spent more than three hours in the county jail before posting bail early Sunday, the sheriff's depart- ment said. He paid the money himself in cash and was ordered to appear in municipal court on-March 7, officials said. Ford was stopped Saturday on a street in Goleta, a Santa Barbara suburb, a spokesman for the California Highway Patrol said. He was driving a 1975 Ford, described by the patrol only as a two-door sedan. A woman with Ford, iden- tified 'as Kathleen Duross, was not held, the spokesman said.
