Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Nutrition study shows Canadians in poor shape 7. TMJ LlThHUOQl HgftALP -1 MARC Alberta ministers in Toronto EDMONTON Two Alberta cabinet ministers will meet with Ontario Energy Minister Darcy McKeough Thursday in Toronto to dis- cuss the pricing of natural gas. Mines Minister Bill Dickie and Intergovernmental Af- fairs Minister Don Getty will present a scheme to base the price Ontario consumers pay for natural gas on prices paid for alternative fuels. The Alberta government an- nounced after federal Energy Minister Donald Mac- donald announced that the ex- port tax on crude oil would be that it would break off further energy discussions with the federal government. But Alberta still is keeping lines of communications open with other provinces and hopes to resolve a lengthy dis- with Ontario over gas pricing. Mr. Dickie said Monday that he. believes the Alberta government will soon be able to develop a formula to imple- ment a gas pricing which would ensure some increase in the price of Alber- ta's natural gas exports. OTTAWA The Nutrition Canada report tabl- ed Tuesday in the Commons had some surprises for the ex- but the major nutritional problem- overweight no surprise. The tworyear study of Canadians found that many are overeating and under-ex- as health experts have been saying all along. It is not simply that Cana- dians are eating too Health Minister Marc Lalonde told a news conference. they were eating too much for the amount of exer- cise they were getting. Only education and motiva- tion can get people off their backsides and into more ac- tive ways of he said. Dr. A. B. Morrison of the health protection branch said experts were surprised that iron deficiency was so. affecting men and women of all ages. Young women aged 20 to 39 years showed the highest iron with 37.7 per cent at an inadequate and were susceptible to anemia. Another surprise finding was that large numbers of Canadians of all ages show low levels of folic a B- vitamin that aids in the proper transfer of heredity characteristics among cells. Health experts don't know for certain the consequences or even the symptoms of this but plan further research. The million study showed 55 per cent of men aged 20 to 39 years have a moderate deficiency of folic acid. EXPERTS SURPRISED Dr. Morrison said nutri- tionists were surprised at the prevalence of moderate thyroid gland even though which is essential for the normal func- GENERAL FARM Presents The Weather SUNRISE THURSDAY SUNSET H L Pre Lethbridge...... 2-13 .01 Pincher Creek 5-11 .02 Medicine Hat 10 -15 .07 Edmonton 8-12 .06 Grande Prairie 7 1 .01 Banff......... 10 -8 .01 Calgary......... 2-19 .01 Victoria 44 35 .25 Penticton....... 33 29 Prince George 17 8 Kamloops....... 27 20 .02 Vancouver...... 37 34 .14 Saskatoon....... 10 -1 .33 Regina 17 -4 .16 Winnipeg...... 24 17 .15 Toronto......... 37 29 Ottawa......... 29 19 Montreal ......'.29 23 St. John's....... 36 28 Halifax........ 34 26 Charlottetown 30 24 Fredericton..... 30 19 Chicago 40 34 New York...... 44 34 Miami.......... 83 70 .35 Los Angeles 73 54 Las Vegas...... 72 47 Phoenix 84 49 Athens 68 59 Rome -46 36 London......... 46 41 Berlin.......... 46 36 Amsterdam..... 48 41 Moscow 36 30 Stockholm 41 37 Tokyo.......... 64 45 Medicine A few clouds today and Thurs- day with an occasional light flurry.

Moderate protein and calorie deficiencies occurred in three-to-five per cent of all' children and in about 10 per cent of all young women. The report says many preg- nant women do not consume adequate amounts of and that their children are dis- advantaged by low birth weight and inadequate nutri- tion as a result. Mr. Lalonde said the study is designed to strengthen the government regulatory role in ensuring that food is nutritionally adequate. It would pinpoint trouble areas. But .the results were not so bad that the government plans any immediate he said. For the govern- ment didn't plan to eliminate certain types of foods that might be low in nutritional value. In any the research didn't provide proof that such things as snack foods were harmful. Others would appear on the market that might be just as said Mr. Lalonde. The answer was to improve what was already available. FEAR COSTS Nor does the government propose to require the nutritional enrichment of school said Mr. Lalonde. The results of the study didn't warrant the high cost. The minister said it was a that poorer people in the study group appeared as healthy as those on higher incomes. It was a question of how the food dollar was spent rather than a question of how many food dollars there were. the study hadn't included persons who were ex- ceedingly and a further study into the health of this group was planned. The which was carried out by teams of nurses and nutritionists between 1970 and found shortages of calcium and vitamin D in the diets of some adolescents and pregnant women. Less than adequate calcium levels were found in 20 to 30 per cent of the general pop- ulation. Low vitamin D levels were found in 50 per cent of five-to-nine-year-old children. Some vitamin Cand moder- ate thiamin deficiencies were found in the general pop- ulation. Vitamin C is necessary to provide intercellular strength in the body's connective tissues and thiamin is an active in- gredient in energy metabolism. Dr. Morrison said the nutri- tional health of Canadians couldn't be compared precise- ly with the health of people in other developed countries. The Canadian study was the best done and reliable figures were not available for other countries. 50 years behind the times.
