Coal-Fired Power Plant


Draws Opposition Here


LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

The proposed coal-fired power
plant in Taylor County thus far has
drawn little public discussion here.
That, however, may be about to
change.
On Thursday evening, John He-
drick, chair of the Panhandle Citi-
zens Coalition, was scheduled to ad-
dress the commission about the pro-
posed plant.
Hedrick specifically planned to
ask commissioners to take a -stand
against the proposed power plant, in
the form of a resolution.
The resolution, which Madison
and Wakulla counties have already
adopted, cites a host of potential
negative health effects associated
with coal-burning facilities.
Among the list of potential nega-
tive health effects cited:
Such facilities emit significant
quantities of mercury, a potent neu-
rotoxin that attacks the human nerv-
ous system.
Such facilities emit significant
quantifies of nitrogen, sulfur oxides


Health Dept.
Offers Study

and fine particulates that are espe-
cially dangerous to children and the
elderly.
Such facilities emit significant
quantities of carbon dioxide, which
is linked to global warming, green-
house gases and the acid rain that
damages vegetation and. poses a
threat to'farmlands.
The Health Department, mean-
while, earlier commissioned a lim-
ited study to determine the potential
health risks of a coal-burning power
plant in nearby Taylor County.
The Rapid Health Impact Assess-
ment for the North Florida Power
Project, as the study by Healthy De-
velopment Inc. is titled, looked at
the plant's potential impact on health
risks such as cancer, heart failure
and asthma.
Among other things, the assess-
ment compared coal technologies
(supercritical pulverized coal -- the
current standard -- versus integrated
gasification combined cycle, the fu-
ture standard); evaluated regional


mercury and global carbon-dioxide
emissions; and assessed the health
risks for Taylor and surrounding
counties."
Among the report's findings:
Mercury -- a potent neurotoxin
that is most commonly ingested
through fish consumption and that
poses a particular risk for fetuses, is
mostly found in fish near coal elec-
tric plants.
More telling: Although mercury
emission has declined since the
1990's, mercury levels in fish and
wildlife in this region "remains ex-
cessive."
Also, relative to mercury: Super-
critical pulverized coal plants pro-
duce about twice as much mercury
emissions, as integrated gasifcation
combined cycle plants.
Particulate Matter -- the report-
able emission from a regulated
power plant.
Again: Supercriticil pulverized coal
plants produce at least twice the par-
ticulate matter emissions as inte-
grated gasifcation combined cycle
plants.
Long-term exposure to
combustion-related fine particulate.

City officials are beginning to
lose faith that the Internet system
will ever work.
Even so, they agreed last week to
hire a consultant to monitor Graybar
Electric Company's testing of the
system, in the hope that they will be
proven, wrong.
Graybar is the company that sold
the city the $227,000+ broad band
wireless system, which thus far has
failed to perform to specifications.
City Attorney Bruce Leinback has
been negotiating with Graybar's at-
torneys to resolve the issue. Last
Friday at a special meeting, Lein-
back gave council members an up-
date of the ongoing negotiations.
Leinback said Graybar had raised
two issues that needed to be ad-
dressed. The first was who was go-
ing to pay for the tests?
"I told Graybar through its attor-
neys that the city unequivocally is
not going to do it," Leinback said.
"The city's stand is that its testing
showed that the contractual standard
of 80 percent requirement is not be-
ing met."
The second issue, Leinback said,
concerned the placement of the
transmitting equipment atop the wa-
ter tank on Water Mill Road, as op-
posed to atop the water tank on
Fourth Street, as the contract re-
quired.
Leinback said Graybar was saying
that the switch occurred without the
knowledge or approval of the com-
pany.
Furthermore, Leinback said, Gray-
bar's position was that absent the in-
stallation of the equipment on the
Fourth Street water tank,, the sys-
'tem's promise of 80 percent accessi-
bility really couldn't be tested.
The question, Leinback said, was
who was going to pay for the instal-
-lation of the equipment on the
Fourth Street water tank? And was it


specifications have been met."
"Quite frankly, given what has
transpired, 'it would be imprudent of
us to just rely on their, representa-
tions," Leinback added.
Based on Leinback's.recommen-
dation, the council voted to hire an
FSU-associated consultant who
charges $65-per-hour, plus a daily
fee of $60 for traveling expenses.
It's expected that the consultant's
fees will cost the city in excess of
$2,000.
As to whether Graybar should in-
stall new equipment at the Fourth
Street water tower or transfer the ex-
isting equipimei from th,: Water
Mill Road water tower,. City Suiper-
intendent Don Anderson opined that
he didn't see where it would matter
either way.
"I make the suggestion that Gray-
bar do it either way they want," An-


person said. "They can put in new
equipment or they can move the
equipment back, cause I know it's
not going to work and they're going
to be taking it all back at some point
anyway."
"What if it works?" Leinback
asked.
"I know it's not," Anderson said.
"No, no, I'm saying what if it
works?" Leinback pressed.
"Well, we buy it then," Anderson
said.
But he reiterated that he didn't
think it was going to work.
The council's decision was to let
Graybar do it either way. And if the
system worked, the city would then
pay for the new equipment or the re-
installation cost.
Better yet, suggested City Clerk
Emily Anderson, let Graybar do a
limited test of onl\ one or two of the
towers. If the system worked here, it
would work elsewhere; or vice ver-
sus.
Leinback liked the idea. He said

dismantled and reinstalled.
"We're going round and round on
this," Leinback said.
He said the estimated cost of the
new equipment was between $5,000
and $7,000; and the estimated cost
of removing and reinstalling the ex-
isting equipment was considerably
less.
Regarding the hiring of a consult-
ant, Leinback said it was imperative
that the city hire a person who was
independent and knowledgeable
about broad band wireless systems.
"We want the testing done within
the parameters envisioned in the
contract," Leinback added. "I think
it's critical that we have our person
accompanying Graybar's personnel
and looking at their data to ensure
that the testing is done in a reason-
able way to determine if the contract

County commissioners were
warned to refrain from commenting
on any of the quasi-judicial proceed-
ings scheduled to come before them
Thursday.
"Let me give you a primer,"
County Attorney Buck Bird told
commissioners recently, referring to
the two Comprehensive Plan
amendments scheduled to come be-
fore the board 6 p.m. Thursday.
"These are quasi-judicial proceed-
ings, where you are both the judge
and the jury.
"Because of that, you must keep
an open mind. You are not to be
convinced or lobbied by either side
prior to the meeting. I'm advising
you here of the proper procedure
and to keep an open mind."


ng Changes
Bird advised the commissioners
who said they were being bom-
barded with citizens' phone calls to
kindly inform the callers that they
were not permitted to comment on
the issue.
He advised those receiving written
correspondences from citizens and
others to bring the letters to the
meeting and read them into the re-
cord.
"Everybody's got a right to hear
the same things at the meeting,"
Bird said.
The two amendments involve the
rezoning of 73 acres off US High-
way 19 South from agricultural to
residential and the rezoning of 377
acres off US Highway 27 from
mixed-used suburban/residential and
agricultural-3 to residential.
Both proposals have drawn strong
opposition from surrounding prop-
erty owners.

Avoid Fraud While


Helping V
After the devastation of Hurricane
Katrina, many are wondering how
they can help. At the same time,
criminals are using this outpouring
of support to take advantage of well-
meaning citizens through deception
and fraud.
People who wish to contribute to
the relief effort are urged to beware
of charity scams, which are espe-
cially prevalent online. Consumer
advocates offer the following
advice:
Make sure the organization is le-
gitimate. Some illicit organizations
will try to confuse you by using a
name that is similar to a well-known
charity. Do your research to find a
reputable charity. For a list of char-
ity reports, visit the BBB Wise Giv-
ing Alliance 'Web site,
www.give.org.
Never respond to a click on a
link within an e-mail asking for
money and claiming to be from
charity. If you wish to make a, dona-,
tidn online, stick with familiar-, es.
tablished charities and donate
through their Web site directly.
Be skeptical of telephone solici-
tations. Never give out personal or
credit card information. Ask for a
charity's exact name and address.
After researching the organization,
call back using its published number
if you would like to get more infor--


victims
nation by phone.
Give a check or money order
made out to the organization, not an
individual.
What are the best ways to help?

ganizations:

Opinion & Comment


.Short Takes & Other Notions


BY MERRY ANN FRISBY

Last week my traveling buddy,-
Paula, and I went to Jacksonville.
We saw the symphony orchestra and
stayed at the Omni Hotel. The Omni
is a clean, marble palace overlook-
ing the river that likely would please
a king, a really beautiful hotel.

The same weekend a young cou-
ple was married in the hotel They
and all their guess weie e\quisltel;.
dressed. Really beautiful people
were floating through the lobby in
well made, colorful and quite lovely
clothing. I was wearing a black
cocktail dress but looked like Eliza
Doolittle by comparison.
The next morning I was in blue
jeans sitting in the lobby drinking
coffee and waiting for my youngest.
daughter to meet us for breakfast.


These same 'lovely people' began
to come into the lobby for breakfast.
During the night Cinderella's coach
lhad turned into a pumpkin!
The young men all had their hats
on sideways, their jeans pulled
down over their thin hips so that
their underwear showed at the top.
The 'adult men were wearing pre
stressed, torn up jeans with holes in
the knees, frayed expensive shirts
and sock-less loafers. All the
women were dies-.d 'in'a like fash-

Then a curious thing happened.
T he downtown street people entered
the lobby and you could not tell
them from the residing, formerly
'lovely people.' One of these street
people sat down in the chair next to
me, showed me his elbow and a
crudely fashioned veteran's card.
He w'hjned and sniveled and as I
looked into his crack addicted yel-'


low eyes, he begged for money.
.When I refused, he was quite abu-
sive and mad.
The hotel, staff could not tell
whom they needed to ask to leave. I
sat there and watched as some street
people were correctly identified, and
some 'lovely people' were insulted.
I was impressed by the cleverness of
the street people, and I felt sorry for
the victimized 'lovely people'.
I tend to enjoy very comfortable
clo:ilihe" Asi l'sat there" in jeans,' I"
wondered if my time was' comn' ii '
show my hotel key or risk ejection.
This could not happen in Monticello
because we know each other.
I could not decide what message
was here. Was it our slavery to
street-chic clothing, the keen plan-
ning of the street people or the ano-
nymity of a large city that was
driving this scene? My final yearn-
ing was to come home.


Not knowing whom the players-
are made me uncomfortable. I won-, .
dered how permanent residents ofb
large towns deal with this every day.
Is there a secret sign that shows you ,,
can pay your tab? Do waiters haven
some way of telling who will run ',
out on the bill, or beg from the other-
diners?
Both Ron Cichon and Julie Conleyg
are really natty dressers, but if they
were in' ratty clothes, you would still,
'ino them if l aminthe Courtiard
in bag lady clothes, the staff know IL
can and will pay my bill. There is'!
sweet comfort in this town small r,
enough to know you by your life-
history rather than exterior trapping l
like your clothes. .j5
Some of the wealthiest people in i
Monticello are comfortable in old 3l
clothes, but if they go to the Omni
in Jacksonville, they had better hang
on to their room key!


School Lunches Boost 'Real' Women Featured In Ads

Vegetable Consu option -You've read about it in "The New tioned campaigns. tori where she exhales, revealing in a United States," said Anderso,


The National School Lunch Pro-
gram (NSLP) was established in
1946 after the government had to re-
ject many World War II recruits due
to malnourishment.
The program was established un-
der the National School Lunch Act,
sighed by President Harry Truman.
It is the largest of the federal child
nutrition programs in terms .of
spending and the number of children
served.
Congress appropriated $11,417
billion 'for the child nutrition pro-
grams for fiscal ear 2005.
More than 28 million children are
served lunch every school day, in
more than 99,000 schools Approxi-
mately 95 percent of all elementary
and secondary school students are
enrolled in schools that participate
in the NSLP.
School districts and independent
schools that choose to take part in
the NSLP get cash subsidies and do-
nated commodities from the U.S.
Department of Agriculture for each
meal they serve.
In return, they must serve lunches
that meet federal nutrition require-
ments, and they must offer free or
reduced-price iinchc.i to eligible
children,
Commodities are often low in fat
and can include fruit, vegetable,
grains, meats and dairy products.
Any child at a participating school
may purchase a meal through the
National School Lunch Program.
Children from families with in-
comes at or below 130 percent of
the poverty level are eligible for free
meals,
Those between 130 percent and
185 percent of the poverty level are


eligible for reduced-price meals, for
which students can be charged no
more than 40 cents.
Children from families with in-
comes over 185 percent of poverty
pay full price.
While school lunches must meet
federal nutrition requirements, deci-
sions about what specific foods to
serve and how they are prepared are
made by local school food authori-
ties.
Current regulations require
schools to meet the Dietary Guide-
lines for Americans, which recom-
mend that no more than 30 percent
of an individual's calories come
from fat and less than 10 percent
from saturated fat.
Regulations also establish a stan-
dard for school lunches to provide
one-third of the Recommended Die-
tary Allowances of protein, vitamin
A, vitamin, C, iron, calcium and
calories.
Studies have shown that, through
the NSLP, children consume twice
the servings of fruits and vegetables
and greater amounts of grains and
dairy than children who eat lunch
brought from home or who leave
school to eat lunch.

Medicare Plan Means Savings


A new study released shows that
the amount of money that many
low-income seniors spend on pre-
scription drugs will fall nearly 90
percent under Medicare's prescrip-
tion drug coverage program.
"Medicare Tomorrow: Future Sav-
ings for Beneficiaries" indicates that
seniors who do not qualify for
Medicaid, but earn less than 150
percent of the federal poverty level -
approximately $14,500 a year will
see their out-of-pocket costs for pre-
scription medications drop from
more than $1,600 to just $180 a
year.
"Millions of American seniors are
eligible for significant savings on
the annual cost of their medications,
if they enroll for the new Medicare
drug coverage," said Mary R. Gre-
aly, president of the Healthcare
Leadership Council, which is coor-


dinating "Medicare Today's" efforts.
"Many seniors are taking multiple
medications, but struggle to pay for
them each month."
The availability of this coverage
means that seniors of modest means
no longer have to choose between'
paying their utility bills and paying
for their medications."
Although low-income beneficiar-
ies will see the most substantial sav-
ings, the study estimates that all
Medicare assistance could save an
average of nearly $700 a year in
out-of-pocket spending.
The report shows that fully 97 per-
cent of Medicare beneficiaries could
have drug coverage after the pro-
gram takes effect on January 1,
2006, compared to just 62 percent
who previously had coverage.
"Medicare Tomorrow: Future Sav-
ings for Beneficiaries" was com-


plied by analysts at
PricewaterhouseCoopers and re-
leased by "Medicare Today," a na-
tional partnership of more than 200
organizations including AARP, the
American Academy of Family Phy-
. sicians, the National Association of
Chain Drug Stores, the Health care
Leadership Council, and others -
committed to providing consumers
with objective, easy-to-understand
information, about Medicare's new
prescription drug coverage.
Together, the group is conducting
a comprehensive outreach program
to reach seniors within their commu-
nities, explaining the Medicare drug
benefit and other new Medicare fea-
tures with clarity and objectivity.
In addition to prescription drug
coverage, many seniors will also be
eligible for preventive health screen-.
ings, such as screenings for high


cholesterol and diabetes, annual
mammograms, bone mass measure-
ments to assess one's risk for osteo-
porosis and flu shots.
"Medicare Today" organizers in
all 50 states and the District of Co-
lumbia are coordinating local events
in senior centers, senior housing fa-
'cilities, pharmacies, grocery stores
and other gathering places to inform
beneficiaries about the new Medi-
care provisions.
The effort is also providing sen-
iors with interactive tools that pro-
vide detailed information specific to
their own circumstances.
One such tool available online
and in pharmacies, physician offices
and senior centers nationwide al-
lows seniors to estimate their current
annual prescription drug costs, com-
bine it with their estimated annual

der the new Medicare coverage.
"Although seniors who are living
with less money stand to see the
greatest savings, the research shows
that many seniors in the U.S. re-
gardless of current income or over-
all worth may save hundreds of
dollars each year," Grealy said.
"It's critical that all Medicare
beneficiaries, including individuals
with -disabilities who receive Medi-'
care; -take the- time to find out more
about this new'benefit'and see if it
makes sense for them."'
In addition to learning more, eligi-
ble seniors are encouraged to enroll
early. Those who elect to enroll after
May 15, 2006, may be subject to a
late-enrollment penalty.


"Rev. David Walker beat out the
Clergy of two larger churches dur-
ing the voting process. Those
churches each have more than a
-1000 member congregations," he
added.
Beigle said that the station tends to
hear more from the smaller church
congregations. He says that they
seem to be more personable and
have a closer knowledge of and
commitment to their church family.
"We heard a lot of good things are
going on at Calvary Baptist Church
and that's nice," he states before
leaving Walker with a prize package
of books, DVD's, and CD's.
The books are authored by H. B.
London Jr., and CD's and DVD's
are from Focus on the Family Min-
istries.
Walker also received "A Mother's
Prayers for her Children," a book
written by Nancy Ann Yaeger. This
book was given to him for his wife.
Walker has been Pastor at Calvary
Baptist Church since 2004.
He was born and raised in Macon,
GA.
He trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as
his personal Savior when he was a
child, and was called, to preach in
his teen years.

At PBI he worked with several

FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Glory Bound's Fifth Annual Bene--
fit Sing "Under The Stars" will be
conducted 5 p.m., Saturday, Nov.
12, on the Patsy and Charles Cul-
pepper property in Waukeenah.
This year's proceeds will go to
benefit The Lighthouse Children's
Home.
Featured guests performing
Southern Gospel music during the
benefit sing will include Jeff
Henry, Farley Light, the girls from
the Lighthouse Children's Home,
Brad Adams, the drama team "For-
given", the Reeves Trio, Southern
Majesty, Three Fold Promise and
Glory Bound.
A concession stand will be set up
withe hot dogs, chili, soft drinks,
desserts available.
Patsy said they expected this
year's turnout to be much larger


than that of last year's 150.
Since the Culpeppers began host-
ing the benefit five years ago, the
proceeds were donated to different
charitable organizations each year.
Last year the proceeds went to
Reapers of the Harvest Ministries.
"The bottom line is saving souls
for the Lord," said Charles.
"We dedicated the land to the
Lord when we first bought it, so
that's what we use it for," added
Patsy.
Attendees are asked to bring their
lawn chairs, sit under the large tent
and enjoy the music.
The event is free but donations of
items including paper items, laun-
dry items, canned goods, hygiene
items and the like would be appre-
ciated.

cepted for the Lighthouse Chil-
dren's Home.

not sure how the Chargers would

"They've got to do better than they
did in the 51-18 loss they had last

Pet Adoption Booth


Successful, Another Set


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

During its regular monthly meet-
ing last week, members of the Hu-
mane Society were advised thai
there was a very good response
from the community at the adop-
tion booth held during last month's
Home Town Get Down.
"We got a lot of good donations,"
said Spokesperson Martha Jean
Martin. "The donation jar was full
and there were twenties, tens and
fives in there.


Internet
(Continued From Page 1)
he would broach it to Graybar's at-
torneys.
There was also the expressed con-
cern that the testing should take
place soon, as the leaves were al-
ready beginning to fall from the
trees. It's the foliage on the trees,
supposedly, that is blocking the sig-
nal to many residences.
Too, it was brought up that rain-
water on the leaves of trees also af-
fects the reception of the signal.
These are among the issues the city
wants the consultant to address.
Finally, Charlie Colvin, the city's
technical service engineer, apolo-
gized for his part in the promotion
of the system.
"Forgive me, I should have never
gotten you into this," Colvin said.
,"But now we see that there are peo-
ple who want Internet service. It's a
vital thing. And I wish that I had
been more diligent. But I took a lot
of people at their word for what they
were saying and they were being so
helpful in doing it, that's it's very
disappointing to me."


"We also picked up some more
volunteers and one more new foster
home, giving us two new fosters
since last month," said Martin.
"That Home Town Get Down" is
good exposure for us, and the com-
munity is very receptive."
Members will set up an adoption
booth during the Home Town Get
Down Fall Festival, 5 to 9 p.m.,
Oct. 28.
Martin also advised that there are
now 16 animals in foster care, three
more, than last month. Those ani-
mals 'include, five dogs, one cat and
10 kittens.
She added that there are currently
14 active foster homes, 10 inactive
foster homes.
Five foster homes had been re-
moved from the list, either because
they adopted the animals they were
fostering and didn't wish to foster
any more, or because they had
moved out of the area.
In related news, President Caro-
line Carswell advised that Micco-
sukee United Methodist Church
would be hosting their annual Ba-
zaar Nov. 26, and that it was a
very popular and well attended
event.

"That would be a great place for
us to set up an adoption booth,"
said Carswell. Since many mem-
bers have long been scheduled to
be out of town on the holiday, she
stressed the importance of obtain-
ing volunteers to run a booth dur-
ing the event.
"If we have someone who wants
to do it but doesn't know how to
run a booth, we'll train them before
hand," added Carswell.
Members have until the first
week of Nov. to respond to the in-
vitation to the event.
Those wishing to volunteer can
call Carswell at 997-4000.

ing Sunday morning, Oct. 30, and ents and drivers.

It's her future.Do the math.:


ty Tips Fo
Hobbs'tips include:
*If children are out at night, driv-
ers need to be particularly careful
at dusk when driving, either over a
hill, or around a curve, where visi-
bility is limited.
Slow down, use high beams to
see and be seen.
Children's costumes should fit


r Trick 'R Treaters


properly, if they are too long, the
child can trip, fall and be injured.
Costumes should not restrict a
child's ability to move. A restrictive
costume that limits mobility may
cause a child to fall down the steps
on their neighbor's porches.
Masks obscures the vision, so
face paint is much better to use.

Children should be aware of
their surroundings at all times.
Trick-or-treaters should always
be accompanied by an adult or
travel in a group.
Children should be told not to
eat any candy or treats until after
they return home and have their
parents inspect the items collected.
Parents should incorporate re-
flective tape in costumes or add
bright, florescent colors to increase
visibility.
Children may get caught up in
the excitement of the day and not
be as careful as they should. They
should always utilize cross at cross
walks and comers and look both
ways before crossing the street.
Children should stay on the
sidewalk rather than walking in the
road. If there is no sidewalk avail-
able, they should walk on the edge
of the road facing the oncoming
lane of traffic.
* It is best to carry a flashlight.
* Children should only trick-or-


treat in areas they know.
* Go to only well-lit homes.
Homeowners should clear their
yards of anything that can be
tripped over and be sure to have a,
front door or walkway light on. ,
Refrain from decorations that
use an open flame that could ignite
a child's costume.
*Do not go to a darkened home.
*Do not enter any homes.
"Halloween is one of the best
times of the year for a child," said
Hobbs. "Let's all do what we can
to keep it a safe and uneventful
one."

Opposition To Power Plant Surfaces


(Coptinued From Page 1)
air pollution is an important envi-
ronmental risk factor for mortality.
Bottom line: the report found that
"adult life expectancy in Taylor
County will be reduced, on average,
by approximately two days due to
Particulate matter emissions after 16
years of (the plant's) operation."
As for surrounding counties: "The
effect of (the plant's) particulate
matter emissions on the health of
Jefferson and Madison counties
would be even less than Taylor
County, given the dispersion model
from the plant."


Carbon dioxide -- gases released
into the atmosphere from the burn-
ing of fossil fuels such as coal. _
Given the scientific premise that a
causal relationship exists between
rising global temperature and the re-.
lease of carbon dioxide, the plant's
emissions will only add to the situa-
tion.

Cited possible outcomes of in-
creased global warming include sali-
nation of coastal lands and
freshwater supplies, population dis-
placement, and increases in thermal
extremes and weather disasters.

. The positive side effects of such
global warming would include a re-
duction of cold-related deaths and
greater crop yields in temperate
zones, according to the report.
Employment -- the plant is ex-
pected to employ 180 persons, at an
average salary of $55,400.
Health Department Director Kim
Bamhill commissioned the assess-
ment. She said the purpose of the
study was to inform the department
what steps and programs it might
implement to mitigate the potential
health risks posed by the proposed
plant.

Healthy Weight Loss available only at
Jackson's Drug, Hoodiacol is
designed to curb the appetite, burn
fat and increase energy levels
resulting in considerable weight loss
over time. Hoodiacol consist of 3 key
ingredients incorporated into rice
ri'an oil 2'with da'tura flavorinigs' to
give it a palpable taste. In 'addition to
weight loss, you may see benefits for
the hair, skin and nails from the
Omega 3 and Omega 6 found in rice
bran oil. Hoodia gordonii is a cactus
found in the Kalahari Desert of South
Africa. Unsurpassed as an appetite
suppressant, it not only limits appetite
but increases the sense of satiety. This
tends to limit total caloric intake by
30-40% without experiencing hunger.
Significant weight loss should result
from such a drop in caloric intake.
