Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, March 1, 1174 THE LITHSRIDQE HiftALD 21 Lethbridge, district surveyed for national nutrition report By JUDE CAMPBELL Herald Staff Writer Lethbridgites may have failed the skin fold test, but they'll never know for sure. At least not until the provincial survey report is released. Bette Purves, educational services consultant with the health protection branch, department of health and welfare, said in an interview that Lethbridge, Pincher Creek and Taber were survey points in Southern Alberta for the national nutrition report. "Teams moved into the areas and randomly chose households to be surveyed for dietary habits and nutritional she said. Surveys were conducted in spring and summer, fall and winter, to ensure all influences were taken into account." Records were made of the individual's food intake, as well as their dental health. All results were sent to computer headquarters for the purpose of compiling the national report which was released in November. "Besides finding that 50 per cent of all Canadians are overweight, the survey showed that the prairie region had a significant goiter said Miss Purves. Problems which were restricted to a particular region were not generally mentioned in the national report, unless the difficulties seemed significant. "A deficiency in calcium and vitamin D were listed as major she said, "which leads nutritionalists to suspect that youngsters and adolescents are not drinking enough milk." Recommendations of the survey include .improved educational programs for the general public. These programs, said Miss Purves, should be well-balanced, modern and appealing in order to be of benefit to the person in the street. "The meaning of the-word nutrition itself is changing in the minds of people. We're getting to the point where we understand what is good, what's convenient'and what's nutritionally lacking." But communication between the nutrition experts and the layman is not what it should be, said Miss Purves. In order to present a new, refreshing look at nutrition, these experts must learn to make use of economists within the community and must also make use of the news media to a fuller extent. Lethbrige VON anticipates operating costs to rise The Victorian Order of Nurses must increase the amount of money requested in annual grants this year to meet an anticipated 10 per cent increase in operating costs, the out-going president of the Lethbridge branch said this week. Speaking at the VON annual meeting Islay Arnold said "continued effort must be directed to maintain the sources of financial support from various funding agencies." In 1973 the VON recorded a surplus of because of increased support by those agencies. And the cost per patient visit dropped to from because of an increased number of visits. The VON is anticipating the number of visits to remain stable and operating costs to rise, she said. Although the organization is requesting the provincial government to increase its grant, the VON affirmed its position their service must remain volunteer controlled. "A government agency providing Ms service would require paid administration resulting in higher costs to the taxpayer, as well as the inevitable restrictions and red she said. The advantage of a voluntary agency is it is able to innovate and implement THE BETTER HALF change quickly as the community changes. The object of the VON is to provide nursing care in the home on a "visit as long as the patient is under medical supervision. The visiting nurse emphasizes rehabilitation and teaches the patient to care for himself and members of the family how to care for the patient. VON nurses are on 24-hour call and Mrs. Arnold said the number of night visits in 1973 increased to 109 from 34 in 1972. The total number of visits increased to from The VON charges a fee for its services for home visits and pre-natal classes per couple but will not deny anyone service because of an inability to pay, she said. Mrs. Arnold added the home care is cheaper than hospital care and the home is conducive to recovery and rehabilitation. Mrs. Arnold, who finished her three-year term, was replaced at the meeting by new president Claudia Card.

My husband is also sterile and both of our beautiful little sons were conceived by artificial insemination. I would like to give her some advice and relieve her of her doubts if I can. 1. Don't worry about the baby not looking like either of you. After all, you will be the baby's biological mother. Also, your doctor will pick a donor who looks as much like your husband as possible. If your husband is a short, stocky Italian, your doctor will not choose a donor who is a tall, blonde Norwegian. 2. Don't worry about the donor not being intelligent. Your doctor will not go through the phone book picking names at random.-He will more than likely choose a medical student, so the baby's biological father will have the brains to get through college end into graduate school. 3. Don't worry about strange diseases cropping up in your baby. My doctor told me all of his donors were married medical students who had fathered at least two normal, healthy children. Your doctor, I'm sure, will choose your donor just as carefully. 4. Take Ann Lander's advice: resist the urge to confide in ANYONE. The rewards are tremendous. You will have a normal, happy pregnancy. Your husband will be the father of your baby. His name will be on your baby's birth certificate. He will be as much your baby's father as you will be bis mother. Forget everything else, and good luck to both of you. I nope you won't have a long wait for the little one you both must want so much.

Making people aware of good dietary habits is part of the battle for good national health, she said. "Alberta is the most receptive province when it comes to matters of she said. "You have something like 60 home economics extension offices, the economists are very active and the people are aware of food facts." In order for the national and provincial nutrition reports to be of any value, Miss Purves said Canadians will "have to to change their eating habits if they want good nutrition." "We're an affluent society, but we're going to have to learn that we can't have everything and be healthy too." She said provincial reports are expected to be released in the late spring or early summer months. The Nutrition Canada survey is the first of its kind to be conducted on such a scale, and has been cited as the best in the world.
