Thursday and FrlHuv tin a n Chronic diseases often result from 6junk9 foods replacing good meals f By MURDOCH MACLEOD Herald Staff Writer is doing irreparable harm to the health of says a Lethbridge nutritionist. Beth nutritionist for the Lethbridge Milk says convenience snack foods and many packaged products just satisfy the not the body's needs. With their hunger satisfied by food with no nutritional people don't feel like eating good food. Mrs. Johnson says chronic diseases are often the result of the lack of a good basic diet. She can produce file after file of material culled from nutritional journals and medical linking health problems with poor nutrition. A New York psychiatrist has linked some learning disabilities in school children to poor nutrition. Behavioral problems and IQs lower than potential have also been linked with says Mrs. Johnson. Many babies start out at a disadvantage. Their mothers' poor diet during pregnancy has harmed their mentally and physically. The files on coffee and caffeine alone are a revelation. Mrs. Johnson savs excessive coffe- drinking especially in place of can cause disease. and the sweets usually eaten with cause hypoglycemia persistent low blood sugar because insulin is poured into the blood stream to take care of the sugar content. The pancreas eventually gives up from producing diabetes. The coffee can produce the effect by she says. It does not have to be drunk with cream and sugar. She says coffee-induced low blood sugar has been linked with many including air crashes. The cola drinks swilled by children produce the same problems as coffee in she said. Good health must be associated with the food people eat and effective nutrition education in the schools is the only she says. Effective nutrition teaching in schools be not she says. Repeated teaching of Canada's Food Rules will do no good if they are not put into practice. Gardens in agriculture classes and animal- feeding experiments in biology demonstrate the need for good food and show how to achieve good she says. Home economics classes could show good says Mrs. Johnson. But when she was she said the students seemed more interested in cakes and cookies than liver or carrots. This could be changing. Ann a home economics teacher at Winston Churchill High School says she gets a very good reaction from students when teaching nutrition Nutrition is stressed in she and students are realizing its importance because of the world food crisis. There are still some problems with student response to nutrition. Al manager of Silverwood Dairies in says milk products do not sell well in schools. The only way to sell milk in schools is through the lunchroom if there is or to arrange for the student union to sell it from a refrigerator. Dispensing machines do not work in says Mr. Wiggins. Tiny cost about and are consistently vandalized when teachers aren't looking. Herman manager of Palm Dairies in also says vandalized vending machines have been a problem. He says he has had success with yogurt sales at Lethbridge Community and says that product is catching on. Mrs. Johnson says teenagers are among the worst snackers. They will eat junk food such as candy and chip-like snacks in preference to a good meal. She says a subsidized lunch plan in all schools could provide one balanced meal a day for less than 80 cents per child. But even if lunch programs were run in all they would account for only one-sixth of all the meals a person eats in a year. People must be educated to follow good nutritional habits in their she says. But what can be done to maintain a good Mrs. Johnson says most families would be better off if they dug up the back lawn for a garden. At one people who didn't raise some of their own vegetables were considered but now people who do are Canned vegetables should be used as little as as should and prepared she said. Part of the problem is that people do not eat family meals as they used she says. But even if family meals are not there are still healthy snack foods raw homemade bread with a glass of milk and others. No one has to eat junk she says. Aspirin among pills cited as cause of adverse reactions CHICAGO People are getting sick from the medicine they take to make them and this in itself is a public health a research team reports. It long has been known that some people have adverse reactions to drugs. These reactions range in seriousness from minor skin rashes to death. A three-year study of more than patients at the Uni- versity of Florida Teaching Hospital in Gainesville shows the seriousness of the problem. Conducted by Drs George Caranasos and Leighton Cluff and a Ronald the study is reported in the May issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. The report says three per the patients in the study were brought to the hospital because of drug reactions. Of 6.2 per cent 65.6 per cent had severe reactions and 28.2 per cent had moderate reactions Over-the-counter pain especially were the leading cause of adverse reactions These were followed by such as penicillin. All 109 drugs were involved. 1 Club corner The Alberta Home Economics Association will hold a dinner meeting at 8 p m.

Kathy an agency social said she promoted the idea to give Indians a chance to see the in- office and field operations of social workers responsible for families and children on welfare. and more bands in B C. now have their own native welfare aides working on the reserve or urban areas but most of these aides have not had a chance to look at families and children on That opinion is echoed by Kathy a treaty Cree Indian from Alberta who will graduate this spring from Simon Fraser University with a sociology brought in as a cultural consultant.
