Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Nutrition Survey Gets Under Way OTTAWA (CP) The million survey to learn whether Canadians are properly nour- ished 'may be hastily revised to notify participants of any dan- gerous symptoms it turns up. Anything unusual found by the medical dental nutritionist teams in examining and testing Canadians will be com- municated lo the individual's doctor or the nearest public health unit. Individual notificalion also may be considered. Beguming Saturday, teams will study groups in every re- gion of the country twice during the next two years. Results giv- ing a national picture of the state of nutrition should be ready in late 1972 or in 1973. Survey teams tested their methods in the Guelph area dur- ing the summer and found 25 to 30 per cent of persons ap- proached refused to participate. As a result, tlie national survey will be modified lo provide enough oversampling so that a wide enough cross-section of Uie public participates. NUHSISS GET DATA The survey involves a home visit by public health nurses where a variety of data is col- lected. This is followed a week later by the family's visit to portable clinic facilities where various measurements and tests, including blood and mine sampling, are administered. Survey co-ordinator Dr. Z. I. Sabry said no provision was made for individual feedback of test results because the teams wanted to avoid potentially dan- [erous efforts at self-medication among persons whose tests showed unusual symptoms. But, the advance teams stressed in their interviews the long-term benefits to individuals and the nation of knowing whether Canadians are properly nourished. The survey was undertaken partly because a number of medical reports m recent years indicate there is malnutrition in some segments of the popula- tion. Low stores of vitamin A have been reported in human livers, anemia is said to be prevalent and rickets cases have been re- ported from some hospitals. Special plans are being made for a survey of Canadian Indi- ans who are not covered in the areas selected for the survey team visits. Based on Uie findings, public health programs and food com- position legislation could be ad- justed to correct deficiencies.

Sees Danger In Foreign Investment CALGARY (CP) Foreign investment iii Canada poses a "real and atule" danger lo the nation's political independence. Senator Earl Hasting (Lib-Alta) said here. Foreign money has stimu- lated economic growth and em- ployment during the last 25 years, he said in an interview, may hai'e impaired federal and provincial government clo- cision-nialting powers. "Our future as a sovereign nation may be in danger as the trend appears to involve real and acute problems for our in- dependence."

Mr. Clark, in an interview, said the province should make a much larger portion of re- sources available to Uie ma- jority of people who have been ignored those nnt university- bound who have the right to ex- pect an opportunity for other post-secondary education. "Universities provide educa- tional opportunities for only about 30 per cent of Alberta students and to now this oppor- tunity for a few has been at the expense of almost all funds avail able in post-secondary education." C o m m u ri ity colleges and teclmical schools "admirably fill this need" for those not planning on attending univer- sity, Mr. Clark said.
