It's Thanksgiving again. A few
short years ago, I wrote a column
especially for Thanksgiving. It was
so well received that I was asked to
repeat it, and now it's become
almost a tradition. Here it is again,
with a few minor changes.
On this Thanksgiving Day, take a
few minutes to think about what
you have to be thankful for.

Thanksgiving prayer; perhaps you
will want to use it at your table
O Heavenly Father: We thank
thee for food and remember the
hungry. We thank thee for health
and remember the sick.
We thank thee for friends, and
remember the friendless.
We thank thee for freedom, and
remember the enslaved.
May these remembrances stir us
That thy gifts to us may be used
for others. Amen.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving
and may God bless you and yours.

COLLEGE ST ATION-Most
products in food stores have dates
and handling directions on them,
even though manufacturers are not
required to put this information on
"The date stamped on product
packages can indicate product
freshness and serve as a guide to
safe storage time, if you know how
to use it," says Marilyn Haggard, a
Texas A&M University Agricultur-
al Extension Service nutrition
She explains that the "sell-by"
date is the last day the product
should be sold, the "use-by" date
indicates how long the product will
retain top eating quality after
purchase, and the "expiration
date" tells the last day the food
should be eaten or used.
"Reading handling directions can
also help you make sure food
remains safe to eat," says the
All perishable products must give
handling instructions, such as
"keep frozen"or "keep re-
frigerated," notes Haggard Some
meat and poultry products may be
labeled "ready-to-eat" or "fully
cooked," which means no further
cooking is necessary

Dealing With Diabetes
Diabetes is the third-leading
cause of death by disease in the
United States, according to the
Texas Medical Association Since
the number of people with this
disease is on the rise, with an
annual increase of 6 percent,
November has been named Na-
tional Diabetes Month.
Diabetes mellitus commonly oc
curs when the pancreas eithei
totally stops producing insulin or
does not produce enough for the
body to function normally. This
results in not enough glucose, or
blood sugar, being absorbed, which
is used by the cells for energ\
There are two main types of this
form of diabetes: Type I. or
insulin-dependent diabetes, and
Type II, or diet-controlled diabetes.
The population at risk for develop
ing diabetes is diverse. Heredity
appears to play a strong role in
Type II diabetes. An inherited
metabolic defect is suspected to be
responsible for the tendency, which
shows that a family history of
diabetes puts someone at high risk
Another risk factor is obesity
Be! "en 80 and 90 percent of
pe e who develop Type II
diaoci.es are overweight The
chances of developing the disease
double with every 20 percent of
extra weight, according to TMA
Also, women develop diabetes
twice as often as men, blacks are
twice as likely to get diabetes as
whites, and Hispanics are five
times as likely
Diabetes is most often detected
by a physician. Too much sugar in
the urine or blood can signal the
disease. The problem also may be
uncovered by a glucose tolerance
test, which measures the level of
glucose in the. biood before, and at
timed intervals after, drinking a
special glucose liquid.
Diabetes symptoms often go
unrecognized. An increased thirst,
frequent urination, unexplained
weight loss, fatigue, and blurred
vision could be sig'.s of diabetes
Diabetes cannot be cured, bul it
can be controlled. Good control
requires a balanced diet, exercise,
and if necessary, insulin or oral
drugs. An important part of total
body care is proper foot care. This
is essential for the diabetic, since
the disease can cut down the blood
supply to feet and reduce feeling

TMA suggests work with your

However, Glezen is concerned
that one of the influenza A viruses
may cause a significant number of
illnesses. A-type viruses appear to
cause more severe cases of the flu
than B viruses.
For those individuals who do not
