These foods are often void of
unnecessary food preservatives.
"There is always the danger that we
can fall into the same category as a
gourmet store," Coats said. "The
business of health foods often
becomes a semantic game."
Coats is leary of many fad diets
and programs, which he says have
"varying degrees of efficacy.
Generally the founders of these diets
have uncovered a principal or
two-only a small part of what
makes up good nutrition."

COATS doesn't eat a lot of red
meats and contends that he can
make a Chinese-style dinner with
fresh vegetables as quickly as
someone can zap a Swanson's
dinner. "For the most part, the
American diet is abysmally poor.
People even buy hamburgers with

Although Coats does eat an
occassional fast-food hamburger, he
said processed foods-with all their
chemical additives-are counter-
productive to the body and deter
from its most efficient functioning.
"Students in particular depend on
many stimulants, whether it's
coffee, tea or soda," he said.
"People have a justifiable paranoia

the ER, and the volunteer sat and
talked with the wife for eight hours.
"I THINK the volunteers are
surprised about the electricity in the
environment. It's truly an ex-
perience they don't forget," Leith
Leith said the experiences make
a lasting impact on the volunteers.
"Each of them, individually, has
to deal with the feelings that go
along with seeing those kinds of
accidents," Leith said. She
explained that the volunteers are
instructed to write in a log book at
the end of every shift, especially if
they are upset or impressed by
something they saw that day.
"If we pick up a message that a
volunteer was really upset with
what he or she saw, then we get
back to the volunteer. The
assurance is that our office is
always available," said Leith.
Dr. Richard Burney, interim head
of Emergency Services, said
Emergency Room volunteers must
have a "special kind of interest."
"You can't put (just) anybody
down there as a volunteer," he said.
"There is a certain amount of life
and death in there. They-have to be
mature and have to be able to keep
out of the way."

in the ER for class credit through
Project Outreach. Leith estimated
that 95 percent of the volunteers
hope to attend medical school.
