Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, November 20, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 White bread may be killer OTTAWA (CP) White bread and other refined foods stripped of much of their cereal fibre or roughage may contribute to the epidemic of non-in- fective diseases of the heart and intestine, say Cana- dian nutritionists. But they caution that more research is needed to substantiate recent British and U.S. research in- dicating the lack of cereal fibre is related to heart dis- ease caused by narrowing of the arteries. The research also links cancer of the colon and rec- tum, second only to lung cancer as a cause of death in the West, to deficiency of cereal fibres. Dr. J. E. Monagle, a senior clinical nutritionist in the federal health department, said recent scientific research makes it apparent that cereal fibres may be connected with serious intestinal diseases. His view was supported by Dr. Zak Sabry, a Toronto nutrition consultant and co-ordinator of the large Nutrition Canada survey, and by Roy of Toronto, a food chemist and chairman of the Bakery Council of Canada's technical and nutrition com- mittee. Dr. Sabry says it is beginning to look as if deficien- cies of cereal fibre are associated with development of diseases peculiar to western society. Mr. Harwood said white bread still contains some fibre, although much of it is removed during the mill- ing process. In any case, "this whole area requires a great deal more attention." The most startling findings were reported recently in the American Medical Association Journal by Dr. Denis Burkitt, an English scientist whose medical achievements won him a Gairdner Foundation award last year in Toronto. With colleagues, Dr. Burkitt, a former missionary doctor in Uganda, completed a major survey of dis- eases characteristic of developed and underdeveloped countries and their correlation with dietary habits. They found that such common North American dis- eases as heart disease caused by narrowing of the arteries, cancer of the colon and rectum, in- flammation of the colon, appendicitis and gallstones are rare or non-existent in underdeveloped countries with high fibre diets. Moreover, people who move from high-fibre areas to affluent countries are soon at risk from these con- ditions, indicating the cause is environmental rather than genetic, their report says. Dr. Burkitt says the hazard to the intestine arises because of the small bulk and low transit time of human waste produced on low-fibre diets, which allows the intestinal flora or bacteria to convert the bile acids required for digestion of food into potential cancer-causing compounds.

Miss Dugdale, a doctor of philosophy, was sentenced to nine years in jail for hijacking a helicopter. Bird-death figure punished EDMONTON (CP) A. R. Smith, the Canadian Wildlife Service technician who triggered a public controversy over bird deaths on Syncrude Canada Ltd. property in northeastern Alberta, has been punished mildly. Mr. Smith told Grant Notley, provincial New Democratic Party leader, that as many as birds had died in the oil-soaked ponds on the Syncrude lease. When Mr. Notley raised the question publicly, it was refuted by both company and government officials. Dr. Douglas Stephen, regional director for the Cana- dian Wildlife Service said he considered Mr. Smith's ac- tions to constitute a mild demeanor, since he was not aware he was doing wrong at the time.
