Brazil Soybean Output Up As World Demand Grows ^lesburgRcgister-Mdi!, : Golesburg Jll. Monday, July 2, 1973 11 RIO DE JANEIRO (UPI) They nwy htve to chan|e the lyrle to "Thsre'g an iwful tot of soybeans in Brazil." Braiilian farmer#-ln the rich coffee-growing south-central re- giotw, in the whott ^ftMring south and in the pioneer lends to the west-are planting soybeans, plowing up virgin MM end other crops to do it. Prices of soybeans on the world market have tripled in a year. A metric ton (1.1 tons) of soybeans fetched $113 in southern potts in 1971. The same long tons cost $125 in 1972 and $420 in iridium 1973. One reason for the soybean rush lies across the Andes. The Humboldt.

On this day in history: In 1778, the Continental Congress formally approved a resolution which became the Declaration of Independence from Britain. It was signed two days later. In 1881, President James Garfield was shot by Charles Giteau in Washington, D.C. Garfield died Sept. 19 of that year. In 1937, American aviatrix Amelia Earhart and co-pilot Frederick Noonan were reported lost over the Pacific Ocean. They were never found. In 1964, President Lyndon Johnson signed a new civil rights bill. course and drastically curtailed Peru's huge anchovy catch. All over the world, poultry farm ers, deprived of fish meal, had to turn to soybeans to feed their chickens. Besides, high prices of meat drove more and more families and institutions to soybeans as a meat substitute. Mississippi Valley floods hurt U .S. crops Japanese, more prosperous, eat more soy sauce, and soybeans Whatever this reasons, the demand for soybeans is trans forming agriculture in Brazil. Since 1983 (when Brazil was (already the third • largest producer of soybeans in the world, behind the U.S.A. and China) production has increased tenfold. In 1971, soybean crops here totaled 1.3 million long tons. They rose to an estimated S million long tons mis year and an estimated 7.5 million next year. (By comparison, the United States produced about 30 million tons of soybeans in 1971). Exports of soybeans, estimat ed at more than 3.5 million tons, should become the second biggest agricultural export, after coffee. Wiflson Baggio, head of a rural syndicate in one of the big coffee growing areas, contended, "The price of coffee has been insufficient much of the time." Rust and other diseases, worms and other pests and the occasional killing freezes in southern Brazil "give the coffee planter three bad years for every good one. "On *he other hand, soybeans oflfer a very good income, lower labor costs, and the possibility of two growing'seasons, one for soybeans and one for wheat," Baggio said. Somebody's listening to him. The state's production of soybeans has increased by a multiple of 54 in 10 years. <ir. DMA/Family Blood Pressure Is Variable By LAWRENCE LAMB, M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb — My boyfriend was rejected by the Army because his blood pressure was 165-80. Should he see a doctor now or when he gets older? His heart is fine and according to an Army doctor, he just has to watch It, as he gets older. Could you tell us something about this. Dear Reader — In some otherwise heaMhy Individuals tuate. Some individuals respond to stressful situations by a rise in the blood pressure. After the stress is eliminated, the blood pressure may be perfectly normal. Some studies show that even a single blood pressure reading over 136 in a young man is associated with a higher incidence of heart disease later in life. Individuals who tend to have elevated readings, even on casual examinations, should have a fairly complete examination by a doctor who will be able to see them periodically in the subsequent years. Such individuals should exercise particular caution in terms of diet, exercise, habits and leading the kind of life that we believe helps prevent heart and vasuctar disease. Most problems from high blood pressure are caused by the fatty depoe its that are prone to develop in the arteries. This leads to heart attacks, strokes, and other problems. Your boyfriend would be smart to eliminate any obesity that he might have now and be scrupulously careful not to develop any fat underneath his SEMI-ANNUAL SHOE CLEARANCE MEN'S, WOMEN'S, CHILDREN'S FOOTWEAR SAVE S 75% skin around the small of his back or oyer his waist. He should follow the dietary recommendations made by the Inter* Scciety Commission on Heart Disease to limit his fat intake, particularly that from beef, pork and mutton, and use more chicken and fish, and limit his cholesterol intake. This usually means avoiding excess use of egg yolks. Avoid Problems Individuals who follow these ana me oner cuetary recommendations made by the commission are expected to have a better chance of avoiding problems from elevated blood pressure. The whole subject of dietary measures to prevent ath­ erosclerosis and heart disease is important to individuals who have elevated blood pressure Those who want more information on diet should see my book, "What You Need to Know About Food and Cooking For Health," (The Viking Press, 625 Madison Avenue, New York, N.Y. 10022, price $10.00) Individuals with elevated blood pressure should avoid cigarettes. Cigarette smoking combined with elevated blood pressure will greatly increase the likelihood of health problems later in life. An individual who has high blood fat or cholesterol levels, often associated with improper diet and inadequate exercise, plus smoking, plus elevated blood pressure, is eight times as likely to have heart and vascular disease as individuals who do not have these findings, so I would like to strongly recommend that ycur boyfriend start a program today that will prevent his problems tomorrow. If he waits until tomorrow, it may be too late. (Newspaper Enterprise Assn.) Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, In care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1581, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019.

The baby is born with a wide range of possible defects. As in polio there are cases where only the lower limbs are affected, a few where only the upper ones suffer paralysis and in about 60% of the cases both arms and legs suffer muscle loss and stiff joints to some degree.
