Peterson At their last June meeting, the Kiwanis Club of Hinton welcomed Peggy Rosei as guest speaker. She told about a project called eaching Everyone to Assist in Creating Healthier Homes" or simply, REACHH. In Summers County, REACHH works from an office in Loaves and Fishes. They still need donations of office furniture and bookcases, but they've already helped 26 families in the local area, and are ready to help more. The idea is to help families learn to work together to solve problems, and specifically to prevent violence among family members. This is a problem in families at all social lev- els, and a primary concern of Kiwa- nis as part of their emphasis on helping children. REACHH members welcome the chance to talk to children or adults, alone or in groups, about problems in the family or on dates. If preven- tion fails, REACHH can help women or men who are being abused by providing a Safe temporary place to live, and assistance in getting social or legal services. REACHH is com- pletely confidential, and workers can be contacted at 466-4659, day or mght.

Weight Loss Surprises ResearcJ 00ers WASHINGTON -- A Nutrition organization was hopeful that a nu- tritionally complete "hi-tech" food tablet would help erase world hunger problems, until a study revealed that one of the ingredients could cause significant weight loss. Although other studies and scien- tist may not agree, researchers in Europe found that the ingredient, a natural plant colloid, actually caused people to lose weight, even though specifically instructed not to alter normal eating patterns, according to one study published in the presti- gious BIqtish .lm,al of Nuttqtion. Researchers in an earlier study had speculated that the weight loss was due to a decrease m the intestinal absorption of calories. While the project of National Di- etary Research, aptly named Food Source One, would not be used to succesfully fulfill its original goal, the formula which has since been improved with other natural colloids has been a windfall for some over- weight people. A Metairie, Louisi- ana nurse lost 71 pounds. She stated "I never had to sacrifice the foods I dearly crave!" "Food Source One is very easy and anyone could do it." says a Niagara Falls, New York, woman who lost 26 pounds and 15 inches. "The results are great." she added. Food Source One tablets are pan of National Dietary Research's com- prehensive plan to bring a rapid end to obesity in this country. A variety of nutritionally sound diet plans, spe- cially prepared by NDR, accompany each bottle and provide a natural, drug free alternanve for confronting the problem of obesity.
