"Considering the mentality of the
people there, I'm pleased there were no

ABOUT 70 police officers-some in
riot gear-were called out to keep order

NEW YORK (UPI) - One out of two
merican adults eats too much or not
enough, a top nutrition expert said
yesterday, claiming the bad habits are
"unnecessarily shortening the lifespan
of millions."
"Half of the adult U.S. population is
malnourished," said Dr. Myron Winick,
head of Columbia University Medical
School's Institute of Human Nutrition.
He blamed misinformation including
popular myths about food.
HE SAID the way to correct the
situation is to give people straight talk
about nutrition so they can make good
'The institute Winick heads is the only
facility of its kind in the country af-
filiated with a medical school-few of

which pack comprehensive nutrition
education into their menus for future
doctors, informed critics say.
"But nutrition involving both ex-
cessive nutrient intake and nutrient
deficiencies is unnecessaryily shor-
tening the life span of millions of
Americans," Winick said.
"THE MAJOR problem is excess
calories leading to obesity and,
therefore, increased risk of heart
disease, diabetes and high blood
"Too much saturated fat in the diet is
linked to heart disease and excessive
salt intake can be a factor in high blood
"In contrast to nutritional excesses,
nutrient deficiencies in this country's

adults are almost exclusively a
problem for women because of life
cycle changes and
lifestylesl-menstruation, pregnancy,
breast-feeding, and the pill.
"The major deficiencies are
generally in iron, calcium, folic acid
and vitamin B6, and lead to anemia and
brittle bones."'
