Both statements were in an- swer to recent news reports suggesting a link between heart i disease and the cooking oi made from rapeseed, an oilseec crop worth more than mil lion a year to Prairie farmers. The rapesced alarm, dan gerous for Canadian rapeseet sales, was partly accelerated two years ago when the health department urged farmers to switch to rapeseed varieties containing low levels of eurcic acid. The warning was based on experiments with rats which de- veloped excess fat in the heart when given high dosages of ra- peseed oil. While both ministers said there is no similar evidence concerning the new low-acid ra- peseed oil, they gave differing reasons for the changeover. Mr. Munro said in a state- ment that "the decision to change to low-eurcic acid vari- eties of rapeseed was soundly based on both medical and tech- nological grounds." He said continuing study ol the oil has confirmed the need to switch. "Evidence to date substan- tiated the wisdom of the origi- nal decision to phase-in the use of low-eurcic acid varieties of rapeseed." Mr. Lang, on the other hand, said the decision to promote the low-acid varieties was cautious one taken without proven need. "The changeover to acid rapeseed was taken as a precautionary measure, not- withstanding the fact that no hazard to health has been at- tributed' to rapeseed oils now or throughout the long history ol their use in the human diet." He said the news reports sug- gesting that even the low-acid oil is dangerous were "irre- sponsible and misleading" since research on the new varieties is "limited and inconclusive." In that, Mr. Munro agreed, saying that the current investi- gation of low-acid oil is not motivated by fears of its dan- ger. "I wish to emphasize that tliis assessment is only being car- ried out as part of our on- going assessment of foods and not because of evidence that ra- peseed oil is harmful to hu- mans." At a subsequent news confer- ence, Mr. Lang said reports about rapeseed oil danger could seriously harm the overseas market. The reports were "absolutely ridiculous and I would be very annoyed if any government offi- cial had anything to do with the stories." He said Japanese buyers, Canada's biggest rapeseed cus- tomers, had expressed worry about the reports. Family questioned OIL slayings SANTA BARBARA, Calif.

Anik 1 is perfect OTTAWA (CP) Anik 1 is "going extremely well" and its performance in the temporary elliptical orbits is "exactly as Telesat Canada officials said Friday.

Yurko pledges control EDMONTON (CP) Envi- ronment minister Bill Yurko told the Alberta legislature Fri- day the government hopes soon to have a "workable system" to control pollution caused by all types of bottles and cans. "We think that by Jan. 1 we will have a workable system he said in reply to Ralph Sorensen (SC Sedge- wick Coronation) who asked whether the government in- tended to ban the use of "pull- tab" cans for soft drinks. Mr. Yurko said between 150 and 200 depots are expected to be in operation by January to handle all kinds of containers "that are recycled by the pub- including pull tab cans. "The government has not, at any time, taken the approach of banning something dlrectly. We have used the approach of incentives and discussion with the various cortpanies to convince them that our way is the right way."
