• Keoavtev 4-AI0ona (la.) Upper D*l Molnet Thursday, December 2, 1965 THIS LABORATORY ON WHEELS will come to Central Community School District at Fenton Thursday (Dec. 9) bringing physicians and tech- nicians from the University of Iowa College of Medicine who are doing research on the nutritional status of students. IOWA CITY, IOWA - A laboratory on wheels will bring scientists from the University of Iowa College of Medicine to the Central Community School District at Fenton, Thursday (Dec. 9), to study the nutrition and diet habits of children in grades 5-8. The research team, headed by a medical doctor, will be gathering data in a continuing statewide study of the nutritional status of Iowa youngsters. Iowa State University at Ames provided statistical services for the project, which is supported by the National Vitamin Foundation. Even though Iowa is a land of high quality foods, the scientists suspect that a significant number of young people may be poorly nourished because of improper selection of foods. Directors of the study are Dr. Willard A. Krehl, research professor of internal medicine, and Dr. Robert E. Hodges, professor of Internal medicine. Preliminary findings from an earlier U of 1 study of teenagers in grades 9-12, which was begun two years ago, showed that many Iowa teenagers had less than a favorable degree of nutrition, perhaps caused by group pressures, fads and fancies, as well as great physiological stresses. Since dietary habits develop over a period of time, the researchers have now turned their attention to a younger age group in an effort to determine when poor nutritional habits actually develop. The research, which has attracted nationwide attention in scientific circles will provide basic data which could possibly INTRODUCING The NEW have far-reaching significance for the health of the nation's population in determining the influence of pre-teen and teenage diets on chronic degenerative diseases in the future. The earlier teenage study showed a number of Iowa's young people had marginal or low intakes of ascorbic acid and Iron. About one-third of those examined had high cholesterol levels and a few were anemic, mostly girls. It was found that many teenagers tend to establish eating habits which lead to the repeated consumption of a limited number of foods. Many do not eat salads, fresh fruits, and vegetables in sufficient quantities. Some of the most striking examples of poor eating habits were skipping breakfast, and then lunching on candy, carbonated beverages and pastries. The Mobile Laboratory which will come to the school is a bus- type "camper" converted to play an important part in speeding the research. The main advantage is that laboratory work can be carried out while the research team is traveling. To avoid shock while moving, the sensitive laboratory instruments are specially mounted on sponge rubber and polyethylene blocks. Among the instruments in the laboratory is an automatic analyzer which can perform 60 , basic laboratory tests an hour, " and in some cases, two different types of tests simultaneously. Other equipment includes a demineraliring unit for distilling water and four centrifuges. A special generator provides a stable flow of electrical current essential for. the operation of many of the instruments.
