(This type of religious intolerance in' England caused the Puritan emigration from that country to "Plymouth Rock" in our nations early history.) In Scotland, however, open civil warfare developed. By 1685, an Episcopal arch bishop had been murdered^ and King Charles II ordered the revolt crushed by his commissioner. One John McGhie, a blacksmith of Galloway, was thrown in prison for saying it served the old archbishop right that he was killed. John was sentenced to a long period of servitude in the plantations in America, and was shipped out with a load of other prisoner immigrants. It so happened that the planter, whom John was &tir '°nced to serve, died before John's arrival in America, and John was set free. By 1850, the descendants of this John MacGhie —born in 1659, came to America as a prisoner — changed the boarded, the bird at Noah's Ark Pet Shop in Ukiah while they went to Topeka, Kan., for the holidays.

This would be very significant if tf-ue, because milk and the products made from it are our primary sources of calcium. However, Isn't It true Chat steaming is less destructive on vitamins? The second relates to pasteurization. Some tips in your column warn that 10 percent of a vitamin's content can be lost in cooking, but then you don't seem to know about greater amounts lost in pastuerizatidn. Enclosed is some information made available by Alta Dena Dairy (the only raw certified dairy in the state). D.L., Areata. A. I am always glad for Mmmenlary On answers I live in columns — it offers a iood chance to clean up a lot jf misunderstanding about nutrition. ' Your first point about the riiiti'ilive values of steafning aver boiling is valid. However, I assume you only read the second part of what was written as a two-part answer to a question on nutrient losses in cooking. The first column ' dealt exclusively with fruit and vegetable processing while the second had only a brief summary statement about them before going on the cover other foods. I agree that steaming is less destructive on vitamins, although it too causes some loss of watersoluble vitamins in the steam. Thus, no matter how you cook vegetables, the' shorter the time the better. Incidentally, microwave cooking causes even less vitamin loss than steaming, presumbly because the cooking time is so short jand little water is needed. Your second point about pasteurization of milk is one that definitely needs discussion./ There is much misiniormation about pastueri/alioii nnd the article by Aita i ^uiiu Dairy is a typical example of the inac- ciiracies often jprinted. I can Heat does not effect calcium. In fact, calcium is well absorbed by milk, raw or pasteurized, because of the lactose present.

William Magie, Billie's husband, is employed at the Ukiah airport by the Federal Aviation Administration.

But it was 1965 before she started doing actual record research.^ Today 100 you use raw milk, so the loss is not important. Harris and Harmas in their excellent book, 'INutritional Evaluation of Food Processing," state that there is no effect by pasteurization on protein, fat, sugar, minerals, vitamins A and D, riboflavin, B6, pan­ tothenic acid, biotin, niacin folacin, and B12. methods of pastuerizing milk fat of milk. But again, the temperature is too low and for too short a time to do this. The loss of any enzymes that may be found in milk,-1 will discuss more in a future column in relation to another question, but let me say here that this too is not significant, older because- all enzymes are proteins, and thus all are may have caused more g digested anyway, vitamin loss, but today's The Dairy goes on to list methods do not.Your article possible health risks to the states that all the vitamin A is public from drinking destroyed and that 38 percent pasteurized milk, both of of the B complex are which are highly questionable, destroyed also — these One is epidemiological in- p. ., statements have no basis in ference that the increased e wi truth, as only vitamin C and incidence of heart disease thiamin are affected in any came about at the same time way at all.
