Possible Heart Attacks Can Be Side-Stepped This is the first in a series of articles on heart attack and stroke "risk factors" prepared by the Iowa Heart Association and published by UDM. He is noticeably overweight. He smokes more than a pack of cigarettes a day. His blood cholesterol level is above normal. He has high blood pressure. This unfortunate fellow is a likely candidate for coronary heart attack. It does not follow, of course, that a slim, non-smoking woman with low blood fats and no hi- pertension cannot have a heart attack. It does mean that each of the unfortunate factors listed is known to be associated with America's leading killer, heart attack, and that the more factors present the higher risk. It may seem strange that anyone should find these facts heartening, yet in a way they are. For it should be noted that with one exception, all the factors that make our man such a strong candidate for a coronary are either preventable, cureable or treatable. Our candidate cannot, of course, help being a man. He is stuck with his sex, and statistics indicate unquestionably that men suffer coronaries more frequently than women. At least until the latter reach the menopause. But there is no reason why our candidate should remain obese. The weight of even the fattest man can be brought down to a healthy level and kept there. Nobody should pretend that it is easy for a long-time heavy cigarette smoker to shuck his habit, but it can be done. A high cholesterol level presents a tougher problem, Despite earlier claims, no drug has yet been found which can safely and certainly reduce blood fats in all patients. But there is Increasing evidence that diets without saturated (largely animal) fats and with poly-unsaturated fats (mostly fish and certain types of vegetable oils) are quite helpful in this re- Buy For Today or Christmas Lay-Away JUST UNPACKED - 30 NEW CHAIRS FRIDAY FRIDAY GtftJUmse WITH EVERY LIVING ROOM CHAIR CASH PURCHASES gard. In most people, high blood pressure can be lowered and controlled with appropriate treatment, often including madication and diet. One final point is well worth noticing: It is never too late to start a risk reduction effort. Satistics have shown clearly that the cigarette smoker who quits reduces his coronary risk down almost to the level of the mm who never smoked; life insurance companies lover premiums for the former fat man when he returns to normal weight; and the death rate from hypertension among middleaged men fell 50% between 1950 and 1962. Education Ass'n Hears Candidates Under the direction of its president, John Vint, the Algona Education Association held its first evening meeting of the current school year in the high school auditorium Oct. 18.

Algona Soldier Intelligence School Grad Weight Control Eating a bird-size breakfast or skipping the whole meal Is a poor way to try to keep your wdght under control, say nutritionists of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It's a far better plan to eat a good breakfast and learn enough calorie arithmetic to even out your day's calorie quota over three meals. * * » Have visitors - go places?
