Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 30 THE IE1HBRIDGE HERAID W.dnoluoy, Novomb.r 17, 1971 fitaminE PZnstic TUiiONTi) UTi A globe-Ironing drug manufac- turer in suburban Ilosidale, William .1. i.utlerson, has be- come known as "Mr. Vitamin V" Ix'ca'i-c he is the world's largest'maker (it what has be- come both a popular and con- troversial product. e'.er since two ron Out..doctor.

The Hexdale manufacturer has taken sonic heart from a recommendation based on the work of Dr. David Turner of the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children, that astronauts be given liberal quantities of the j vitamin. Turner .said in an inter- j view that "the bitter argu- ments of the past about vi- tamin E .should be forgotten. It's time we look a fresh look at the an j open mind." why not? KDMONTON (CP) Plas- tic sewers? Why not'.' The city's water and sani- tation department said yes- terday it is installing a HiU- foot section of fibre-reinforc- ed plastic pipe al the end of a storm sewer as an experi- ment. Frank Bereczky, sewage and draining design engineer, said Uie new pipe, 36 inches in diameter, is easier to han- dle than is concrete counter- part mainly because of its light weight. However, said Mr. Bere- czky, a complete plastic sower system for the city is a long time in the future be- came of the relatively high cost. It was installed in the exist- ing sewer to determine how it would resist abrasion by sand and gravel. OMO burned every yw NiTsubstitute lor parental supervision ST ___, vv.. hiirviu Oil Of HH1 (Illlg. OTTAWA (CP) There's siill 1 r.o substitute for parental super- I vision when it comes to protcct- ing children from flame burns. But the federal consumer af- fairs department is Irving to make that job a little easier. It has just issued regulations setting minimum standards for the flammability of textile prod- ucts, including more stringent ,nes for material in children's nightwcar. An informant said that while it is difficult to get "hard fig- ures" on burn injuries, a study published last spring said about Canadians burn them- selves every year. Of these, fiOO die. About 30-40 per cent of these burns arc actually from flame as opposed to other causes, he said. The study, by Dr. .lohn Birch, a staff surgeon at the Sick Chil- dren's Hospital in Toronto, had shown that about 31 per cent of admissions theie are children with flame burns. Out of 100 cases, 90 per cent bad liera burns caused when clothing ig- nited SET HL'HN LIMIT Under its new regulations, the consumer affairs department now requires all textile products for consumer use to meet a minimum requirement of a 3.5- second burn time according to a standard test. This means, in effecl.that Icx- tiles considered dangerously flammable because they burn almost explosively are being 1 excluded from the market. ,'roducts with a raised fibre, such as flannelette, must have a burn time of not less than four seconds because they are. more exposed to air and thus burn i faster. i Material for children's nigh- (wear must have a minimum I burn time of seven seconds, Uic same requirement as for bed- i ding. The new bt'.niing standard for children's mghtwear does not mean a child will be protected from flame no matter what he 1 does, an informant said. It meant rather thai a parent might have lime to quench the fire before its consequences were severe. With the dangerously flamma- le fabrics now banned from sale, however, there was no time to snuff mil flames. IMAKKS I.AI) TESTS In order to arrive at levels for mir.imnm standards, the depart- ment has been testing materials for a long lime ill its laborator- ies. The procedure is simple A five-inch strip of material is attached to a metal frame, set at a -IS-cI c g r c e angle and touched al its lower edge by a flame of fixed heat. Then the burning time of the material is observed and recorded. The new regulations apply t imported as well as domestic and department offi- cials will be checking shipments it entry ports into Canada as well as'sampling the market. The penalties for selling tex- tiles that do not comply with the new rules, made under the Haz- ardous Products Act, are: Im- prisonment for two years for an indictable offence or, for sum- mary conviction, a fine or six 'month's imprisonment or both. The department is interested in the possibilities of flame-rc- lardir.g chemicals and is coop- erating with medical persons to assess whether Uie chemicals might be harmful to the skin. Consumer affairs officials also want to find out how many washings these flame retar- dants will stand and remain effective.

I immedi- ately made a personal investi- pali'nn their claims and was convince.! that vitamin E was going to become of major im- portance Not e v e r v o n e was con- vinced. In fact some doctors say vitamin E is humbug. Dr Kenneth Brown of the Toronto General Hospital cor- onary-can unit said in an in- terview: "A lot of my patients are on the vitamin. I think it's use- less but let them go ahead and take it. if they want to. I doesn't do any harm." Even after the Shutc broth- ers first made their claim, there was opposition. NO VAM'K A committee of medical professors appointed by the College o.' Physicians and Stir- geons of Ontario stated: "Vi- tamin K has no place in the treatment of cardiovascular disease." They based the statement on a test ai Toronto General. Of 5ii heart-failure patients, half were given daily doses of HCO international units of vi- tamin F.. The other half were given a harmless, inert sub- stance. The investigators reported that seven months later there was no siEnificant difference in the death rate or recovery process between the two groups.____________________ Rides set for Capp hearing EAU CLAIKE.
