" r *"" Food for Thought Cancer patient's 'diet important \ By JEAN MAYER Professor of Nutrition, Harvard University Without a doubt, cancer is our most dreaded disease. Still, thanks to advances of modern medicine, tens of thousands of its victims triumph over the disease each year. Few people realize the degree to which the diet of a cancer patient plays a vital role in his recovery. Let me hasten to declare that there is no magic food that will cure or prevent cancer, despite what scores of food faddists would have you believe. On the other hand, some natural products, as well as some additives to or contaminants of our foods, may cause cancer. Aflatoxin, a compound that is produced by a naturally occurring mold and that may appear on common foodstuffs like peanuts, corn or even in milk, has been identified as a likely cause of some cancers. Certain additives, like cyclamates, have been removed from our food because of the possibility that they are carcinogenic; other chemical additives, like nitrites, are being carefully reexamined. There has been the suggestion that too much — or too little — of certain types of foods in our diet may cause cancer. Contrary to the preaching of food faddists, there is no evidence that sugar or white bread in themselves can cause cancer. Yst there is mounting evidence that a lack of dietary fiber — common in diets that are heavy in sweets and white bread — may promote cancer of the colon, or large bowel. 1 think this corollary is well enough established for us to increase our dietary fiber by switching to whole-grain breads and bran cereals. Even though we really may not know very much about the possible nutritional causes of cancer, we do know for certain that cancer has a dramatic effect upon its victims' nutritional needs. For one thing, the disease increases caloric requirements by speeding up basal metabolism — that is, the rate at which the body uses energy. Thus at the very outset, it is necessary to eat more just to maintain the same weight. Cancer also increases the need for protein. Researchers have called an active cancer a "protein trap" because it has first call on the protein we get in food. Some people have the mistaken notion that going on a low-protein diet will starve the cancer and don't realize that cancer is like a parasite out of WEATHER tog. Weather 1973-74 —i»n— Max Min Pep Aug —1974 Min Pep control. It will draw the protein it needs from the surrounding, healthy tissues in ever- consuming amounts in order to maintain its own accelerated growth rate. Hence, a high- protein diet is indicated. Otherwise, the patient may starve. In addition, specific forms of cancer bring their own nutritional problems. Anemia is one common by-product. When the bile ducts are obstructed, lack of bile in the intestines affects absorption of fats and fat-soluble vitamins, which can lead to Vitamin A or D deficiencies. Calcium deficiency is also common in patients with intestinal cancer while those with bone or breast cancer often retain too much calcium. This whole process is a double-edged sword, for while the cancer is increasing nutritional requirements, it is also cutting off the appetite. Indeed, one of the first symptoms may be severe anorexia — a revulsion to food. And the fear, depression and guilt feelings often accompanying cancer causes a patient to be even less interested in eating. As the growth continues out of control, it drains the body of strength needed to fight the disease. Obviously, the success of any therapy — and the chances are good, especially when started early — are improved when the patient's nutritional well-being is maintained. Here are some general rules to follow if no special diet has been prescribed: The first rule is probably the hardest to follow: Eat whether you feel like it or not. Overcoming anorexia lies more in the patient's willpower than in the cook's imagination. Then, don't waste the calories. Plan a high-protein diet, including foods from each of the seven basic food groups each day. Use fresh or lightly processed foods to ensure a good intake of all the essential nutrients. Pay attention to the special nutritional problems that may be created by various forms of the disease. And above all, remember that it is impossible to "starve" cancer. The patient must eat if he is to conquer the disease. (Dr. Mayer welcomes question from readers.

Farm group to give view of inflation By DON KENDALL AP Farm Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Ford administration wants advice on how to cure inflation from delegates invited to an Agriculture and Food Economic Conference next month in Chicago. Agriculture Department officials said the meeting, scheduled for Sept. 13, will involve about 60 invited delegates representing a cross-section of agriculture, farm-related businesses, labor, consumer interests and financial institutions. "We are askng the delegates to identify what they feel are the main causes of inflation and to give their observations on the effects of inflation on agriculture and food," Agriculture Secretary Earl L. Butz said Friday in a statement. "We will also explore what they think the government can do, as well as what individuals, private groups and private business can do to help dampen the tide of inflation," Butz said. Officials said dialogue developed at the Chicago meeting will be passed on to a summit conference on inflation called by President Ford for Sept. 2728 here. By DON KENDALL AP Farm Writer WASHINGTON (AP) Farm prices of cattle and hogs, which provide about 30 per cent of what consumers eat, are climbing again, while beans, potatoes and vegetables have declined from mid-year. The Agriculture Department reported Friday that over-all the price index for raw farm products rose 3 per cent from July 15 to Aug. 15. The boost followed a 6 per cent increase from June to July. The department's Crop Reporting Board said higher prices for animals, corn, soybeans, wheat and eggs led the advance. However, the index was still 13 per cent below the record set on Aug. 15 last year, officials said. A week ago, the department predicted retail food prices would continue to rise in the last half of 1974 but not as rapidly as they did early in the year. Even so, officials said retail food prices for all of 1974-may average at least 15 per cent above last year, compared with a 12 per cent gain predicted a few months ago, when super- large grain crops seemed likely. Summer drought reduced those prospects and has helped fuel another spurt in food prices. The price index of meat animals as a group rose 4 per cent from July to August, but the average was still 33 per cent below the record peak set a year ago when government food price controls were eased. Cattle, for example, averaged $36.60 per 100 pounds on the hoof, and hogs $36.10 per 100 pounds, each up $1.60 from July 15. But a year earlier cattle were $51.70 and hogs $56.30 per hundredweight. Corn brought farmers $3.37 per bushel, a record, compared with $2.91 in July and $2.68 in August last year. Put another way, 100 pounds of live steer would buy about ten bushels of corn this Aug. 15, compared with nearly 20 bushels a year ago. That, basically, is why consumers will see much less grain-fattened beef on store counters and more produced from animals grazed in pastures. It also shows why hog, poultry and dairy producers are skeptical about increasing output: it costs much more to feed livestock. Wheat was $4.24 per bushel at the farm on Aug. 15, up from $4.04 in July but below the $4.45 mark set a year earlier. Wheat rose to a record $5.52 per bushel last February. The farm price of potatoes was $4.97 per 100-pound bag in August, down from $6.34 in July and from much higher peaks last winter. A 100-pound bag of dry beans brought farmers $28.30 in August, compared with $30.50 in July. But a year ago they were $17.90 per bag.

(AP) — Propane gas from a ruptured pipeline dissipated uneventfully into the air at Albert l*a Friday as authorities and some 2,000 evacuated residents waited. "The potential was unbelievable," said Fire Chief Everett Grinolds. "I didn't believe we could get through this without ignition from some place." Houses, two schools, a factory and a shopping center within a two square-mile area of southwest Albert Lea were evacuated about 2:30 p.m. Friday when an earthmover working on a construction project hit the line. Valves on either side of the break were turned off and firefighters, police, sheriff's and State Patrol officers and Na- tional Guardsmen stood watch as strong southwesterly winds blew gas from the six-mile segment of pipe into an open area away from most houses. Volunteers went from house to house shutting off gas intakes and pilot lights to minimize chances of an explosion. Some 900 junior high and 400 elementary school students were dismissed early because of the rupture. Residential evacuees included about 400 persons who lived in two housing developments for the elderly. About 40 persons who had nowhere else to go awaited the all- clear call at the National Guard Armory, wheere the Red Cross served coffee and doughnuts. -~ ^—-• -^ **r n f*r**r*qr*w^*<&*jy*&*&t4 BELORES COLBY DAME CLASSES Registration Friday, September 6 Y.M.C.A; 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in Fergus Falls Classes begin Saturday, Sept. 7 at the Y.M.C.A.
