He found that, the Es- kimos sharply boosted consump- tion of candy, soft drinks, Dr. Schaffcr says in an article in the Canadian Medical Asso- ciation Journal that this may help to explain the relative roles of the factors that have pro- duced a world-wide growth ac- celeration in the last 100 yeais MANY ESKIMO SUBJECTS His subjects were Eskimos living in three widely separated the central Arctic at Coppermine and in the eastern Arctic at Pond Inlet and Arctic Bay at the north end of Baffin ir. the birthweights and mean heighls also rose.

His evidence rules oul interra- cial mixing of Eskimo and non- Eskimo as a factor. lie estimates that annual per- capita sugar consumption has skyrocketed from 2G pounds in 1959 to 104.2 pounds in Meanwhile, other carbohydrate forms in flour, oats and cereals declined slightly and protein de- clined considerably more. He calls the sudden rise in i sugars "the most important fac- j tor in bringing about I growth acceleration." The ef- fect of sudden high sugar con- I sumption before much meat or fish protein is consumed results in a known blood-sugar condi- tion that stimulates human j growth hormone in the body. i LISTS FINDINGS I Among his finds: birth weights rose by! more than one pound in one! year alone, following the move lo Pangnirtung of Eskimos who had previously lived in small hunting and fishing camps.
