Marshall Chronicle (Newspaper) - January 10, 1998, Marshall, Michigan4 Marshall chronicle saturday january 10, 1998 Michigan voices it is now a commonly accepted medical fact that iof most people moderate consumption of alcoholic beverages no More than a Glass or two a Day decreases the risk of heart disease. But the Federal government still refuses to acknowledge what family doctors have told their patients for years. It s not because the government is without information. In fact Back in 1972, a study conducted under the auspices of the National institutes of health made the connection Between moderate drinking and decreased risk of heart disease. The scientist involved Harvard epidemiologist Carl Seitzer recently revealed How his research was hushed up. Because his study received Nih funding he needed Federal approval to share his findings in a scientific paper. An Nih official wrote at the time a an article which openly invited the encouragement of undertake on ing drinking with the implication of prevention of coronary heart disease would be scientifically misleading and socially undesirable in View of the major problem of alcoholism that already exists in this coun that As reason Magazine Points out is a political judgment not a scientific one. And it persists today in the form of alcohol Labelling regulations issued by the Bureau of alcohol tobacco and firearms. Label statements about the positive health effects of moderate alcohol consumption Are expressly forbidden the regulations say a regardless of their this is sadly Joist one example of How the Federal government can suppress or even alter the results of research that runs counter to the agendas of regulators. The a Pena news. Let kids have their fun but be Safe its a fact of life kids have Energy to bum. They crave their own outlets. And if adults stifle them that suppressed Energy will burst out in ways that at times can be unacceptable and even dangerous. But if adults open up avenues for kids to express themselves and be Active in ways that please them the natural friction Between kids and grown cools off and can become a lot More tolerable. \ thatis of course As Long As the adults have a Way of keeping an Eye on their Young people. Just to make sure they re Safe and no one gets Hurt of course. These thoughts came to mind in considering the latest City Experiment with fun and kids a namely a new skateboarding area unde Mealii tie Washington Avenue Bridge also called the Robert b. Miller Bridge. Battle greek police officer Mike st. John came up with a Fine idea when he proposed a Way to accommodate Young skateboarders and in line skaters As Well As the business owners who Weire concerned about such activities on downtown Side Dos. St. John suggested that the area tinder the overpass be spruced up a bit so skaters could go there rather than possibly disturb pedestrians and traffic on downtown streets. Its a Good idea All the Way around especially because it gives the Young people a sheltered spot for ethnic mix their Fin that Isnit quite As restrictive As the environment at full blast where liability concerns demand the use of helmets and wrist and a knee pads. Of course it just snakes sense for skateboarders and skaters to exercise real caution under the Bridge despite the informality and Lack of rules just As they would on any City Street or sidewalk. Triese High Speed activities can be hazardous and those who try them will have to realize that they re indulging in them at their own risk. Fortunately the place just happens to be a place where according to st. John police officers gather to write reports. That will provide some reasonable supervision. City officials have placed some Trust in the Young people who Are Likely to use this site. Its Only fair that the skateboarders and skaters respond properly. Those who use the site should enjoy their fun carefully treat the site with respect and keep it clean in Short they should live up to the Trust placed in Vliem. If that does no to happen they be Sui prised if they lose this privilege. A the in auth sized you re a a / Al my. Stnhlot55 a nol com guest editorial Lyly Nukool listening is a skill.
