Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta _ Mondoy, M.ret. THI LETHIR1DGE HERALD ivmg The homemaker By MARILYN C. TATEM District Home Economist The overemphasis placed on calorie counting in the last 20 years, has been called UK cal- culating "kick." Such empha- sis has been partly responsible for the phenomenal number of fad diets going the rounds. Characteristics of Fad Diets: Temporary a fad diet is temporary, generally having a rapid rise in popularity and of ton a rapid decline. A new or-a seems to appear almost every week! Irrational a fad diet is usually irrational, distorting or ignoring principles of good nu- trition. It often lakes a valid research finding but applies it out of context, giving overem- phasis to one food or one group of foods and assigning to them magical powers. For example, grapefruit or eggs have no special ability to "melt away Prestige and glamor a fad diet often has special appeal, excites attention and has pres- tige. Tire drinking man's diet can make a good conversation- al piece. Something for fad diet seems to offer something for nothing. Be wary of the "calories don't count" kind of diet or "you can eat all you want" claims. Certainty a fad diet often appeals to Ihe desire for cer- tainty; a pat formula relieves one of Ihe responsibility for thinking and making choices. Promotional fad diets often are associated with promotion of special foods. Their purpose is then to increase the promot- ei-s' profits. ]ia7arris associated with lac] dicls: Often they offer only a limit- ed choice of foods and eliminate certain food groups like dairj products and cereals. In time this leads to a diet defirien ,in one or more of the essentia nutrients. 't Losing 10 or 20 pounds fairly easy but maintaining a weight loss is more difficult. The success of a reducing pro- gram requires a permanent change in eating Iiabils. Fad diets are meant to be tempo- re ry. They are monotonous and cannot serve as tiio basis lor new permanent food pat terns. Fad diets generally encour ago people to spend their money unwisely. Some diets call fo foods that are very expensiv or supplements which are cost Warning: According to Kooi and Drug Regulations no foo: or drug can be -advertised a a cure (or obesity.

Pamphlets have been handed out among women employees in pills shaped like liny fish, owls and animals. It made them so ill they were in hospital for a week and month later are still undergoing blood tests to make sure their recovery is complete. It was the iron that made them so sick. But even an overdose of vita- mins without iron can he harm fill. In 1970 the federal depart 600 bank branches, by the On- ario Committee on the Status Women with the of women's groups.

Yet the government legally remains powerless to do any- thing about the problem be- cause it still has not adopted microwave oven safety regu- lations proposed by health de- partment experts more than two years ago. j In fact, lacking the regu- lations, the federal health de- partment cannot even accu- rately determine whether there is a microwave oven leakage problem in Canada, and if there is, determine its magnitude. Why are there still no regu- lations? No one in the health depart- menl, which is responsible for it aider the Radiation Emitting Devices Act, seems to know; or at least seems willing to i say. I Meanwhile, the circumstances continue to overtake the govern- ment, as the microwave ovens which started in commercial use now increasingly spread to domestic use. More than two years ago. the department did a small survey of microwave ovens in use in Ottawa. II found lhat one-third of the sets tested leaked more than the then-acceptable (in the U.S.) level of 10 milliwatts of radiation per square centime- ter, measured five cemlimcters from the leaking door of the ovens. The department concluded that much of the problem was the result of wear and tear. It also decided that the problem was serious enough to warrant special federal regulations, to cover the importation, manufac- ture, and sale of such ovens in Canada. Microwave ovens, by the way use radar-type energy to shake tlie molecules of foods into heated state in a matter of sec onds or minutes, compared to mailer of minutes or hours for conventional electric or gas evens. Radiation leaks around the doors of the micro- wave ovens. Since the 1970 Ottawa survey Canada haa still not progressed in getting its microwave regu- lations. But Hie United Stales has re- duced ils acceptable radiation level for microwave ovens un- der federal regulations from 10 milliwatts to 1 milliwatt for new ovens and to five milliwatts for old ovens. The federal heallh depart- ment has done only one small study of the Canadian situation since 1970. It has tested about 12 models of new ovens destined for home use and found all o( the models within Ihe 1 milli- watt U.S. limit. Canada, by the way, Is also considering establishing the I milliwatl limil for new oven.s, (once it gels its much-talked about regulations.)
