(UPI) — A University of Wisconsin food scientist says fresh milk or yogiu-t can reduce, ' rather than increase, cholesterol levels in humans, j "Recent research indicates that there are factors in milk that somehow prevent' the build-up of cholesterol in our blocki," said Prof. Thomas Richardson. Cholesterol is in milk fat, which comprises a large part of certain dairy products, and is also produced by the body. 'High cholesterol levels have been linked with coronary artery disease. ^ " But Richardson said drinking milk or eating yogurt fermented milk — has beien shown to reduce cholesterol levels. "Therefore, whole milk and especially skiiii milk should not present a problem by increasing blood cholesterol of consumers," he said. "At this time, we are not sure how other dairy products may be just as effective in might affect the blood choles- preventing ' build-up of terolof consumers. A lot of the cholesterol in the blood. stu(}ies wei?« done by feeding yogurt to people. But subsequent studies indicated that even fresh milk reduced cholesterol." One early study was conducted on African Masai herdsmen, who consume large amounts of a fermented milk product similar to yogurt. It showed they have low blood cholesterol and a low frequency of coronary artery disease. Richardson said the study, by Dr. G.V. Mann of Van-, derbilt University Medical School, showed the Masai volunteers had even lower blood cholesterol levels when they were fed more of, the fermented milk product than they normally eat. He said a study of American volunteers produced the same results. Richardson said Mann's studies indicated fer- menta'tidn of the milk may be important. But he said there are also indications fresh milk Africa will be an unstable area for many years to, come, Philip Boynton, who teaches geography at Ukiah High School, told the Mendocino County chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma at a recent luncheon meeting. "Right now," he said, "Communism fights democracy on a continent which fieeds neither, but which desperately needs ,a better standard of living." Boynton, who taught secondary school in Uganda in the mid-sixties, predicted that the Africans. will probably develop one-party democracies, or one-party Socialist states, but that the latter should be no cause for alarm, in the United States.' Even the Communist countries among the 44 African nations are leaning toward America. "This is partly because thte Russians are incredibly heavy-footed," he explained. "Every time they get some control in a country, they stir up dissent, get a dissident group to take over and then try to take over themselves by Dates to keep the most oppressive means. They have been booted out of five countries. "Even Mozambique and Angola, considered to be in the Russian camp, like the U.S. better than they like the USSR," he said. "We are not, as racist as the Russians and the American popular culture is much admired. The Russians haven't had anyone who' comes • close to Elvis • FYesley as an influence." Boynton told' the women educatOio' honorary that he had considered a success in his high school teaching in Uganda and offered some grim proof: "I was probably (instrumental) in gietting 70 or 80 young men killeii by the Ugandan dictator Idi Amin, because they had been educated for the professions through my efforts, and Amin deliberately wiped out the professional elite.'' During the business meeting which followed Boyhton's address, the chapter welcomed a new member, Tiny Bateman, a transfer from Plainview, Tex., who is now teaching at the Circle B School in Redwood Valley.
