Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Vitamin C level lower in smokers OTTAWA (CP) Smokers have about 30 per cent less vitamin C in their blood than nonsmokers. This recent discovery was made from data gathered dur- ing a Nutrition Canada survey of the nutritional health of more than people. The findings, released here, also were reported Wednes- day at a conference on vitamin C at the New York Academy of Sciences by Dr. Omer Pelletier of the federal health protection branch. Researchers found that the median level of vitamin C in the blood of smokers was 30 per cent lower than that of nonsmokers. But for those smoking more than 20 cigarettes a day, the median level was 40 per cent lower than that of nonsmokers. However, the vitamin C' level of pipe or cigar smokers was similar to that of male nonsmokers. About 55 per cent of men and 40 per cent of women sur- veyed smoked cigarettes, while about seven per cent of the men were pipe or cigar smokers. Dr. Pelletier, a biochemist, said earlier studies elsewhere on volunteer groups had pro- duced contradictory results about smoking and vitamin C levels. The survey indicates many smokers risk succumbing to disorders vitamin C helps prevent, he said. The vitamin is known to pre- vent scurvy, a disease almost non-existent in Canada. But its health value has been hotly debated following evidence it may block the growth of cancer, speed growth and healing among children, increase resistance to sur- gical stress and substitute in part for the Insulin needed by diabetics. Iii 1970, Dr. Linus Pauling, a California chemist who holds two Nobel prizes, published a book that claimed vitamin C taken in large quantities can prevent colds and promote robust health.

Thurtta, October LETHBRIDOE HERALB-23 Wheat price subsidized OTTAWA (CP) The price of the basic ingredient in bread, wheat, would be stable in Canada until the middle of 1960 under terms of a bill introduced in the Commons Wednesday by Otto Lang, minister responsible for the wheat board. The bill is the proposed Two-Price Wheat Act, under which the government would subsidize the price of wheat used to make bread until Aug. 31, 1980. Milters would not have to pay more than a bushel regardless of how high the international price climbs. This now is about 96 a bushel for the type of wheat used for bread in Canada, No. 1 western red. The subsidy has been in effect for about a year and the bill, Which would extend it for six years, would fulfil a mitment by the government last year. A similar bill was introduc- ed last year but died with the last Parliament.
