Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, November H, WO TilC IETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 Sugar key factor in human growth OTTAWA (CP) Sugar and j Dr. Sehaffer says in an article not proteins may prove to be the key factor in man's tend- ency to grow taller and to pro- duce bigger babies. Evidence suggesting this has been turned up in a study of Canadian Eskimos by Dr: Otto Scltaafer of the federal govern- ment northern medical research unit at Edmonton. He found thai, where the Es- kimos sharply boosted consump- tion of candy, soft drinks, sugared biscuits and other fin-ms of sugar, the birthweighls and mean heights also rose. At the same time, the Eski- mos were cutting back on their intake of protein, long regarded as a key nutritional factor in growth, as they switched from nomadic hunters and fishermen to the more settled life of estab- lished Arctic communities. Girl screams fi L'om aulo EDMONTON MANY ESKIMO SUBJECTS His subjects were Eskimos living in Ihree widely separated the central Arctic at Coppermine and in the eastern Arctic at Pond Inlet and Arctic Bay at the north end of Baffin Island and al Pangnirtung on UYS southeastern side of Baffin Island. His evidence rules out interra- cial mixing of Eskimo and non- Eskimo as a factor. He 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 lor in bringing about growth acceleration."
