28 Galetburo RgQistef'Moil, Golesburg, HI. Monday^july 30, 1973 Cantaloupe,Watermelon Top Nutrition By MICHAEL I CONLON WASHINGTON (Uf»I) Three guesses: What's the most all-around nutritious fruit? Apples? Oranges? Grapefruit? - ; Wrong, ..' .'>• ,'. Washington Window the answer is cantaloupe - i With watermelon running a close second. At least that's the analysis of Dr. Michael Jacobson, director of the Center for Science in the Public interest, a privately financed organization which studies consumer and environmental issues. Jacobson has just published a book called the "Nutrition Scoreboard" in which, among other things, he attempts to Appetizing Meal •'But It's All Rock. Dentist 'Hams Up' His Rock Collection CINCINNATI (UPI) - Chef Joe Daugherty serves up a scrumptious looking meal. His old Kentucky ham looks succulent and juicy, his baked potato appears piping hot with a tender skin and his biscuits look like they'd melt-in your mouth. But you'd need teeth of diamonds and a cast iron stomach to digest Joe's food. It's all rock. Joe, a dentist from Lexing-j ton, Ky., collects rocks for a hobby! One day Joe began seeing the shapes and colors of food in his stones and, as Joe. puts it, he began "hamming up" his rock collection. Joe placed his "stone cold meal" on display here as part of the 1973 Midwest Gem and Mineral show last week and his booth was the hit of the exhibit. From three years of collecting rocks in 15 states have come dozens of stones that from just a few inches away are mistaken for prepared food. His.. "child's plate" special hurdle' the statistical and scientific barriers that prevent many Americans from eating the right things. Vitamin formulas such as the "Recom* mended Daily Allowance" approach are often .too difficult for laymen to understand, Jacobson believes, so he has come up with his own system. Jacobson assigns points to foods containing nutrients Americans don't eat enough of, and subtracts points from those full of the things Americans eat too much of. He says even children can understand his charts. In general the points - go to foods containing protein; naturally occurring carbohydrates such as starch, fibre and sugars; vitamins A, B-l, (or B* 6), niacin and C; iront calcium (or magnesium) and trade minerals, foods lose points when they are high in added sugar of corn syrup, saturated fat, or high in fat content, Which brings us back to cantaloupe. Watermelon Runner-up Jacobson's chart for fresh fruit shows cantaloupe at the top with 99 points for a quarter- melon serving; watermelon is next with 74 points for a two- pound slice (the weight includes the rind but the nutritive value does not); followed in descending order by oranges, strawberries, grapefruit, diced pineapple, tangerines and pea* ches. At the bottom of the chart are plums —one plum being worth nine points. Above plums, in ascending order, are prunes, blueberries, pears and bananas. Jacobson calls cantaloupe "an ifflaaifigly nutritious fruit. One fourth of an average-sized melon contains 49 points for vitamin A (or 91 per cent of the recommended daily allowance) and 39 points for vitamin C (78 per cent of the Rt)A). "The runner-up spot goes to watermelon—and this vis a surprise to most people, even nutritionists . "•. An average sized wedge supplies half of the recommended intake of both vitamins A and C (25 points each), has a fair amount of carbohydrate (6 points, the same as a banana) and contains more iron per serving than any other fruit on the chart (three points). Eat watermelon both for good nutrition," taste and good Jacobson advises. Jacobson's vegetable chart ranks'the fop five all-around best bets as frozen collard greens, frozen kale with stems and iiiriribsv ffozen broccoli, turnip greens and spinach. The bottom ftfe are celery, cucumbers, ideberg lettuce, diced beets and canned corn. '• *' Skim milk, buttermilk and yogurt rank at the top Of the dairy food chart while ice cream, coffee whiteher butter are at: the bottom, With minus ratings.

But the bun is actually sandstone rock, the meat is red chalcedony from Kentucky and the cheese and fries are yellow quartz from North Carolina. Small pieces of gleaming j [tumbled garnet from North Carolina makes up the soft drink and the collection makes |you want to sip from the glass they're placed,in. Joe also embellishes his "food" to make the display more realistic. The potato is wrapped in aluminum foil and looks as if it's just been taken from the grill. A buttering knife is placed next to a "loaf" of sliced bread, while rocks that look exactly like prime steaks are placed on a hibachi. Joe lists, all his rock foods on a restaurant menu, which he distributes to persons stopping by to savor his display. "The meal started with the potato," Joe said. "A friend found the rock and wanted me to cut it up. I said, no, this is a potato. He let me keep it and from then on I started seeing food in the rocks I had and looking for food in rocks I found." Some of the rocks are displayed just the way they were found and others have received only minor polishing and cutting. Tennessee became the state in the Union in 1796. 16th READ THE WANT ADS!
