Food oils hazard hassle near end By JEFF CARRUTHERS Herald Ottawa Burean OTTAWA The still-sim- mering, and at times in the past the bubbling, controversy about possible long-term haz- ards to humans from certain :ood oils may soon end. If not that, at least the "scientific' cards will soon be on the table, n public view. Health Minister Marc Lalonde confirmed yesterday outside the Commons that he has finally re- ceived the report of Ins special advisory committee on food oils containing "long chain fatty Canadians, that KUNG HOTEL TAVERN TONIGHT THRU SATURDAY 'Ghost Notional String Band' DINE AND DANCE LOUNGE I TONIGHT thru SATURDAY "SUDS" means mainly marine oils and rapeseed oils used in such prod- ucts as margarines, cooking oils and salad dressings. The special advisory com- mittee, composed of non-gov- ernment food experts, recently completed what health depart- ment officials describe as a "thorough review of all relevant scientific information" on the human health implications of the various food oils. The review had been sparked last fall by reports that even the new Canadian rapeseed varieties low in the long chain fatty acid, erucic acid, seemed to cause fatty infiltrations in animal experiments and might therefore post hazards for hu- mans. Previously, older rape- seed varieties with higher amounts of erucic acid had been linked to heart tissue dam- age and fatty infiltration in ani- mal experiments. There are similar concerns about marine oils which also contain related long chain fatty acids. Tuesday, it was learned that recommendations for govern- ment action, based on the advi- sory committees review, are now being prepared for the health minister. More important perhaps, both Health Minister Lalonde and Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan said Tuesday outside the Commons that they see no reason why the final report of the advisory committee should not be made public as soon as possible. Blob from sky scares housewife DALLAS (CP) It came from the sky, grew rapidly in size in the backyard of a Dal- las housewife but then shriv- elled and died before re- searchers had time to study it fully. That's the story of the Dal- las blob which attracted con- siderable local attention after a local newspaper reported its existence. Marie Harris said the blob, which suddenly appeared in her backyard, was a jelly-like mass that pulsated, bled, foamed and resisted all ef- forts to kill it. "It started out the size of two oatmeal Mrs. Harris said. "But it grew to the size of 16 oatmeal cookies in a couple of weeks." By the time scientists from Growth International Inc. were called in, the blob was reported to have doubled to the size of 32 oatmeal cookies. BLOB WASHED AWAY After scientists sliced away a portion of the blob, tornado weather struck Dallas last weekend and heavy rains seemed to wash the blob away overnight. But the next morning, the blob was times as big and in three sections. Alberta, B.C. arrange study VICTORIA (CP) British Columbia and Alberta plan to co-operate on a study of ad- vanced education programs and facilities in northeastern BC. and northwestern Alber- ta, Education Minister Eileen Dailly announced today. She made the announcement jointly with Jim Foster, Alber- ta's minister of advanced edu- cation. The study will focus on organization, governance, co-or- dination and financing of ad- vanced education institutions in the two provinces. It was at this point that the Dallas newspaper ran its story. blob promptly died. "It Just shrivelled up, with- ered and said Mrs. Harris. A researcher for Growth In- ternational, a Colorado-based firm, confirmed that the blob came from the skies. He said the blob was a collection of spores which constantly land or. the earth's surface. TONS OF SPORES LAND "It comes down in we get tons of spores a day coming in from the at- the spores are the basis of its said the researcher, Arnold Dittman. "These spores could come from God knows where. It is, in fact, a bacterial mutation which nature creates when- ever conditions are conducive to its growth." Dittman said the Dallas blob was a collection of spores which fed and grew on the protein in Mrs. Harris's backyard and said its red color was due to the bacteria it contained. But Dittman said his com- pany didn't have enough time to fully examine its portion of the blob. "We can't analyse anything now because it's he said. Dittman discounted the the- ory that the blob might have travelled on a craft from outer space believed to have crashed at Aurora. Tex, 75 miles northwest of here, in 1897.
