Jprofessor
says keep
eating your
*vegetables

By CRAIG SULLIVAN
For the Daily
Even for college students on the
run and far away from home, Dr.
Cheryl Rock says it's important to
always eat your vegetables.
Rock, an assistant professor in
the Human Nutrition program, lec-
tured at the Whole Foods Market on
East Stadium Boulevard on every-
thing from mono-saturated fats to
cancer-reducing foods.
One common misconception Rock
noted is the connection between breast

cancer and dietary fat. "The link be-
tween fat and colon cancer is a fairly
strong one, but with breast cancer it's
still uncertain." And as she explained,
people who eat high-fat diets often
eat very few vegetables.
Humans need a considerable
amount of fat in their diets. "You
have to have about 20 percent of your
calorie intake come from fat in order
to absorb many of the important nu-
trients which your body needs."
Rock explained the basic fat
groups - saturated fats, mono-un-

saturated fats and poly-unsaturated
fats. The key difference between the
three types of fat is their chemical
stability.
"Saturated fats and poly-unsatur-
ated fats are more likely to chemi-
cally change and make the tissue more
susceptible for cancer change."
Oils from many nuts - like pea-
nuts, walnuts, avocados and olive oil
- are among the healthier mono-
unsaturated fats. "They're less likely
to make your cholesterol go up; in
fact they may actually lower it, and

they are also less likely to promote
cancer if they get into the tissue."
Some vegetables can reduce the
risk of breast cancer.
"Crugiferous vegetables, such as
cauliflower, broccoli, brussle sprouts
and cabbage, contain an active com-
pound called Indole," Rock said. "This
compound stimulates an enzyme that
causes your body to convert estrogen
into anti-estrogen." And as she noted,
"breast cancer is a type of cancer
that's promoted by estrogen."
Unfortunately, Rock says, supple-

ments are not the same as organic
fruits and vegetables. They are lim-
ited in the amount of important nutri-
ents that they supply. "Supplements
are only part of the game and often the
people who are taking them are the
people who are the least likely to need
them," she said.
In addition to being inferior to
organic fruits, Rock said supplements
are more alien to human bodies that
have had billions of years to adapt and
cope with high and low doses of vari-
ous foods.

Even during college days,
Christian groups keep faith

Religious
organizations find
campus good place
for Involvement,
recruitment
By JOSH WHITE
Daily Staff Reporter
Signs and pamphlets from various
Christian groups at the University
cover residence halls, posting boards
and walls all over campus.
Each one advertises differentmeet-
ings, study groups and fellowship.
Leaders of these groups say they feel
that as religious groups, it is neces-
to be a presence on campus.
"It is so easy for students to go to
college and just let religion go for a
few years," said Lora Fallon, a mem-
ber ofthe Orthodox Christian Fellow-
ship. "Some people go through their
childhoods going to Sunday school
and when they come here they feel
they don't want to continue it or feel
that there is no way that they can
ntinue it.
W "We have to reach out to those
students and keep them involved and
interested in their religion," she said.
"We have to provide a place for the
students who want to stay active to
keep connected with their religion
and interact with others who have the
same goal."
Other nondenominational groups
try to spread Christianity to people
rho may not have considered it prior
to coming to school, and to get those
students involved.
"Our goal on campus is to show

students that they have the opportu-
nity to begin a relationship with Jesus
Christ and to grow with that relation-
ship," said Keith Longcore, a mem-
ber of the Campus Crusade for Christ.
"We want to get people to know that
they can have a meaningful relation-
ship with God."
Longcore said that through Bible
study, meetings, discussions and other
activities, the Christian groups here
try to connect with students.
"This is a group in which we can
make students feel welcome while at
such a large place as Michigan," he
said. "We have over 100 members
now, and we reach out to indefinite
others through handouts and by talk-
ing to them. We want people to know
that we are here.
"College is a place where students
want to change the world, there are
people here who are willing to fight
for what they believe in," Longcore
said.
"It is a good place to get people,
before they are settled down with a
job and a family, to see what it is that
they believe in and how what they
believe in can change their life.
"It is a very good place to raise
people up and to spread the news."
Paul Champoux, adviser to the
International Fellowship Christian
group, said that not all groups aim at
those students who may be trying to
move away from religion.
"Most students in our group are
older, such as graduate students and
visiting scholars," Champoux said.
"Or they are international students
who come from places where religion
is not as strongly emphasized.

"Many of these students are curi-
ous about religion and interested in
learning whatever we can teach them."
Champoux added that the nonde-
nominational group offers discus-
sions, meetings, activities and tries to
be available to help students with
their needs, whether they be religious
or otherwise.
"We offer Christian fellowship for
those people who desire it," he said.
"We also try to help people out with
their everyday concerns and prob-
lems, if at all possible."
Recruitment is not as high on the
International Fellowship's list as it
may be with other groups that fre-
quently display Diag banners and ac-
tively pursue membership.
"We are achieving our goals with
the students that we meet and that
come to us," Champoux said. "There
is only a small percentage of interna-
tional students here and we only meet
some of those students. When they
come to us, we try to help."
The Christian groups all work in
the same direction under a group called
Christians United, Longcore said. But,
he said, each group has its own agenda
and own specific goals.
"While the programs and focus
that each group has is different, we
are all working on a parallel level," he
said. "All the groups vary in member-
ship, participation and goals, but we
are all trying to promote Christian
participation and education."
Students and faculty who are
interested in learning about these or
other Christian groups on campus may
