Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 6, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD Thursday, September 6, 1973 Demand for meat upsets food supply HONOLULU, Hawaii Stuck for a steak in the meat short- age? Take heart, nutritionally you probably don't need it. A leading world food expert calls the demand for meat in countries like the United States extravagant and unnecessary. Not only does it lead to need- less dependence on meat, he says, but it also distorts the world food supply encouraging overproduction in meat in pros- perous countries at the expense of cereal grains. "Many people seem to think that, if they don't have meat, they won't have the protein they need. But this is not explains Max Milner, of the United Nations protein advisory- group. ''There is no evidence that meat is necessary.'" Dr. Milner blamed the grow- ing demand for animal protein in affluent countries for adding to world food shortages. In fact, he twinned it with over- j population in other countries as one of the two main food-short- age culprits. "In poorer countries where creeal grains are the primary foods, the per capita consump- tion of protein aver ages about 400 pounds a year. This grain is consumed as such, with minimal processing and cer- Golden (Open Monday through Fri- day, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday 1 to 5 p.m.!

"In the affluent countries, on the other hand, the per capita grain consumption is about 000 pounds per year, of which only about 150 pounds is used for foods such as bread, ma- caroni, and breakfast cereals. The balance provides the ani- mal foods we eat meat, poultry, eggs, and milk. In other words, he says, in poor countries people may suf- fer greatly from lack of basic foods such as cereal and grains, while the affluent countries ere feeding it to livestock. Dr. Milner also presented a bleak picture of the potential of high-yield grains to help food-poor countries. "The irregularity and partial failure of the past year's mon- soon r-ains in India and South- east Asia (and drought in Afri- ca) again raise the spectre of famine.'' Mr. A. H. Boerman. Direc- tor-General of the UN Food and j Agriculture Organization, re-i oently called on all countries to! co-operate in establishing grain 1 reserve stocks to meet world I emergencies of the kind which j is apparent now. Dr. Milner wonders if the de- veloping countries ever will mobilize their agricultural po- tential sufficiently to cope with tha needs of their own people in the face of this insatiable i demand in the world markets j for meat and for the grain re- quired to produce it. Dr. Milner respects the tech- nological resources of both the United States and other na- tions, especially in areas of in- creased grain and soybean production. He did, however, project a rather disturbing longer-range prospect. Listing several factors criti- cal to the United States and other agricultural countries, he mentioned the increa s e d scarcity of water for farming and the fuel required to oper- ate equipment, the assault on the environment due to euthro- phication of lakes and streams with increased fertilizer uses, and the shrinking of pasture- land for beef production. i JACKPOT BINGO THIS THURSDAY EVENING, SEPT. 6th Sponiorcd by Ladln' Aid of SI.

On the Tel Aviv Beachfront, between the new high rise apartments, construction has begun on two marinas that the municipality says will "meet the needs of the growing ranks of Israeli yachtsman." The art galleries, marinas, boutiques and lavish homes are the visible signs of new Israeli affluence that is one of the most striking by products of the six-day war in 1967. Riding the crest of a spiraling postwar boom, more and more Israelis are adopting a life-style that would have astounded Zionists just a generation ago. Scores of personal fortunes have been made since the war, many by independent contrac- tors whom the government hired on a crash, cost plus basis to build fortifications and settlements in the occupied Arab territories. Others have grown rich because of the sud- den expansion of postwar mar- kets. others from the Sinai pen- insula oil fields and still others from the growing stream of for- eign capital that has flowed into Israel. A newspaper reported re- cently that Israel had 200 mil- lionaires. The number amused Baruch Braude, whose account- ing firm is the Israeli equiva- lent of Price, Waterhouse.

And with a twinkle in her piercing dark eyes she smiled and added, "I've always been crazy about French antiques. The French were always poor, and they would sell their beautiful things to the London dealers. I've picked up sone real treasures at Partridges on Bond Street and in other Lon- don shops."

I thought I'd mention costs to this lady who has so much she can't count it all, so I asked if money mattered when she travelled or entertained. She looked over at her secretary sitting in the next chair and sort of embarrassingly replied. "No. it doesn't." Next I asked her how she handled gratuities. "Sophie takes care of every- she said.
