The Gullf County Tourist
Development Council has ,been
busy achieving the lofty goal they
set for themselves. Since hiring
their full time director, Paula
Ramsey Pickett in January, the
TDC has hit the ground running.
'Their web site www.visitgul
f.com has been completed and
provides a wealth of information
to today's traveler. The council
has completed the publication of a
Gulf County Press Kit. These
press kits were developed to aid
journalists in promoting Gulf
County as a tourist destination.
They include a variety of arti-
cles on the many amenities Gulf
County .has to boast about. In
addition to the press kits, a series
of brochures are being developed
for display in the Florida Welcome
Center's.
During the months April, May
and June visitors to these
Welcome Centers will have the
opportunity to register for a Free
Florida "Great Getaways
Vacation". The. TDC secured the
much sought after promotion and
worked with The Turtle Beach
Inn, Fanta Sea Horseback Riding
and The Dockside Cafe6 in the
development of the vacation pack-
age give-away.
The TDC has had a strong
grant program in effect since its
inception and this program is
continuing. The TDC has. commit-
ted $20,000 ($10,000 in 2001 and
$10,000 in 2002) to help the City


of Port St. Joe offset the comple-
tion cost for the renovation of
Frank Pate Park .and Boat Ramp.

Gas Bills Fuel


. 35;


Concerns


High Bills Not Relateddto J P osed Rate Increase quest


Natural gas- prices have
soared over the winter months,
throughout the United States.
The national media was
warning consumers "several
months ago that natural gas
reserves were low and production
would probably not be able to
meet demand. This scenario has
been complicated even further
this winter because of extremely
cold weather across the nation for
an extended period of time.
Gulf County's local provider,
St. Joe Natural Gas Company,
Inc., is in the midst of petitioning
the Florida Public Service
Commission for rate increases on
their base rate and non-fuel
charge (operational expense)
rates. That proposal is currently
going through the review and
public input phase of evaluation
by the FPSC.
To date, there has been no
increase in gas bills approved by
the Florida Public Service
Commission, nor has any shown
up on consumers' bills, except in
the form of fuel charges.


Recent high gas bills have
caused, a buzz throughout Gulf-
County as some residents have"
seen bills escalate by 1000 and
more.
The subject even came up
during Tuesday evening's Port St.
Joe City Commission meeting
when County Commissioner
Nathan Peters. Jr. said the prices
were creating a hardship. espe-
cially for families on fixed
incomes-some of which were
receiving bills of $250 to S300. It
was noted that this problem is not
just limited to Gulf County.
Who's To Blame
The natural tendency for con-
sumers is to place the blame for
the increased rates on their local
provider. This even becomes more
likely when the provider (St. Joe
Natural Gas) is in the process of
requesting a rate increase.
As a utility company, its rates
are regulated by the Florida
Public Service Commission. The
company can not make money off
the actual fuel that is sold. In fact,
any funds generated over the


amount allowed by the .FPSC
must be returned to customers-
so there is no reason for the com-
pany to even attempt to gain more
. revenues than allowable by the
regulators.
Reason For Increase
Actual fuel costs can be
passed on to consumers though.
In December of 1999, one therm
of natural gas cost 0SO.299
(excluding transportation cost): In
December 2000. one therm of gas
peaked at a cost of S1.140
(excluding transportation cost).
The cost has increased almost
four fold over the course of one
year. This is the fuel cost factor on
customers' gas bill and is a reflec-
tion of what the gas provider
actually paid for natural gas and
transportation.
Note that the "Customer
Charge" (0) and "Non-Fuel
Charge" (0) are constant. These
are the prices that the FPSC reg-
.ulate and the ones that are under
question for rate increases. "Fuel
Charge" (0) is not constant and

has been responsible for price
increases as the cost has escalat-
ed.

Boat Ramp Closing One


Month For Renovations
i


Part of Frank Pate Park Project
Frank Pate Park boat ramp
will be out of service for just over
a month- while "major-renovation
and improvements are being
made.
Bill Kennedy. Preble-Rish,
Inc. engineer, told Port St. Joe city
commissioners during Tuesday's
meeting that the boat ramp will
likely be taken out of service
either Friday, February 9th, or
Monday. February 12th, when
contractors begin work. The
board recently accepted a bid of
S119.819.08 to redo the boat
ramp, dredge the channel, and
construct boat mooring docks.
Every effort id being made to
limit the time that the ramp will
be closed as much as possible
and to complete the work prior to
rthe beginning of the tourist sea-
son.
The boat ramp is only a por-
tion of the work to be done under
the park grant. Sidewalks, addi-
tional parking, playground equip-
ment, a community events sign,
aid park benches are also includ-
ed in-the plans.
Commissioners got a shot in
the arm, from the Gulf County,
Tourist Development Couiicil to
help fund the remainder of the
park work. TDC Director Paula
Pickett was present. at the meet-
ing to. present a check to the&
board from the TDC for $10,0066
to help fund the park project.
She also told the board that
the council has agreed to give
91 0.000 more dollars durfig the
next fiscal year, for a total cofitri-


bution of $20,000 to help pay the
matching portion of State Park
and Recreation Graqt funds to
'. compl te the project.- .. .,..
The total project is estimated
to cost approximately 8162,000.
Feasibility Study
Commissioners agreed to a
recommendation from Mayor
Frank Pate to advertise for RFP's
seeking firms interested in con-
ducting a feasibility study for a
motel to be constructed in the
city.
Once again, the TDC is
assisting with this project by con-
tributing $6,500 toward the cost.
Interest in a motel is increasing
and is a major objective of most
development agencies within the
county.
In Other Business
eAgreed to hold conversation
with the county and the City of
Wewahitchka to try and formulate
a county-wide morality ordinance.
Accepted an invitation from
Commission Chairman Nathan
Peters. Jr. to participate in a joint
workshop to be held Monday,
February 19th. at 5:00 p.m.. ET.
In the county commission meet-
ing room to discuss and plan top-
ics of mutual concern.
*Comrmssioners set a board
vworkshdp for Monday. February'
12th, at 3:00 p.m., ET, to be held
iii the fire station m eeiting room.
,Agreed to appoint
Commissioner David Horton as
the board's representative on the
Apalaehicola Regional Planning
Council.


St Joseph Bay Humane Society Breaks Ground

for New Home

The first shovel of dirt for the .
new Gulf Coufity Ariimal Shelter
was ceremoniously turned
iSunday afternoon, February 4th. '
Carolyn and Leon Lee have
begged, borrowed, and worked
toward a goal of seeing a new ani-
mial shelter become a reality for
several years. As two of the main
spark plugs for the local St.
Joseph Bay Humane Sociedty, it
.was only fitting that the husband
and wife team Were given the
honor of turning that first shovel

Rough-Toothed Dolphins Stranded


On Saturday afternoon,
February 3rd, two volunteers at
St. Joseph Peninsula State Park
found 19 rough toothed dolphin
rolling in the Gulf of Mexico surf
about one to one and. one half
miles south of the tip. The first
one was dead but others were still
alive. The volunteers quickly fioti-
fied the park office and park
rangers were dispatched to assist.
Gulf World, NMFS, local wildlife
rescuer Paula Boone and FWC
were quickly contacted for a coor-
dinated response.
.A total of 12 dolphins; includ-
ing two calves were assisted back
across the first offshore bar into
open water by park rangers and
the two volunteers. This small pod
quickly headed into deeper
waters. Surf 'conditions were
calm, the" water and ambient air
temperatures were slightly
warmer than the last winter
stranding. Additional park volun-
teers, FWC officers and park staff
loaded the dead dolphins into


trucks to .transport, to Eagle
Harbor. These dolphins were
transferred to NMFS and Gulf
World vehicles foi- transportation
to the NMFS offices in Panama
City for Necropsies.
A larger stranding episode
occurred near the day use facili-
ties in December several years
ago. The response from area resi-
dents, state and federal agencies
has always been immediate. Anne
Harvey, park manager would like
to thank all who showed up to
assist and for the continued sup-
port of the natural resources..

Eighth Street Closed
As of Monday, February
5, Eighth Street in Port St.
Joe was closed between
Woodward Avenue and
Marvin Avenue until further
notice for extensive road

EDITORIAL COMMENTARY Hunker DownT With Ke-S by Kesley Colbert


A Library Is For


Reading, Isn't t?

There 'is seldom a dull day at The Star. You might say we have more
than our share of personalities working here. The least of whom are the
*': three front office workers-Kim, Marie and Sally.
During the course of the day, there are usually several episodes that
S..: break the daily grind and monotony that accompanies the process of pro-
during a weekly paper, marketing office supplies, and producing com-
mercial printing. I figure that sometimes you have to act a little Insane in
order to save your sanity .. and if that is truly the. case, then we cer-
tainly must be very sane-based on how insane we can be sometimes.
Last Thursday afternoon, local dentist Dr. Robert "Bob" King dropped
by on a research project. He wanted to review our bound archives to locate
information pertaining to the Kiwanis Club as part of their 60th anniver-
sary in the community. he planned to locate information concerning the
club's formation etc., etc.. etc.
"Bob" probably thought we were organized for above and beyond what
we truly are organized as he walked in and asked the office staff where he
might locate the library.
Little did he know that our library has nothing to do with archives. In
fact, we have signage posted at the entrance to our restroom stating,
S"Welcome to Our Library and Music Room."
'-I suppose, as I reflect back, that Kim thought "Bob" knew what we
called our facilities and might have confused the urgent and hurried look
on his face to be one of immediate personal need. He was quickly direct-
ed to the back storage room and told. "First door on the right."
After several minutes in the back there was some concern about the
'Doc's" well being, but he finally came back into the front office exclaim-
ing, "I've looked everywhere back there and I can't find the library."
It was along about that time that everyone understood there was
probably a communication problem, and the definition of "library" was
further explained.
After all the laughter subsided, the "Doc" was given an explanation as
to why there was some confusion as he was directed to the archives, he
has since spent several hours reviewing those files and I don't
believe he had to make one v-,sit to the library.


- Court Error
By: Steve Casey, Freelance Writer
The historic Old Courthouse in St. Louis, Missouri,
stands as a symbol of just how wrong courts can be.
There in 1857, in the Dred Scott case, the Supreme
Court ruled that no Negro (court terminology), slave or
free. could be an American citizen. The argument was
that as ;slaes. Negroes were property. If they were given the rights of cit-
izens-.'tl-rirghts of the property owners would be infringed upon.
Court rulings do not change what is morally right or wrong. The
courts in Nazi Germany ruled that Jews were a menace to society-a rul-
ing that justified the slaughter of 6.000,000 Jews. In 1973, the Supreme
Court ruled that unborn babies were not human and therefore not pro-
tected by the Constitution-a ruling that has led to the bloody killing of
over 4 1.000,000 unborn children.
How many times have men like Mahatma Ghandi, Martin Luther King
and. more recently, Judge Roy Moore had to take stands against wrong-
ful court rulings in order to stand up for what is right? St. Augustine once
said, "An unlust law is no law at all.:"
Now we are facing the courts' rulings against our Judeo-Christian
heritage. Does it not seem strange to you that if a student in school stud-
es the writings of Hitler. it is legal: but if a student studies the Bible, the
most influential book in all history and the number one best seller of all
time. it is illegal?
The Congressional Records tell us that in the same week that the First
Amendment passed. Congress passed legislation to provide for a paid
chaplain to convene all congressional sessions with prayer. Yet, in the last
few years we have seen the courts use the First Amendment to uphold the
-, night to publish pornography and to strike down the right to pray in pub-
ic schools. graduation ceremonies and football games! I repeat: Court rul-
".^ .ings do not change what is morally nght or wrong.
S Many Americans have recently begun reciting the Lord's Prayer after
the singing of the National Anthem at football games. We realize that not
all of them are sincerely praying to God-they are human beings and are
therefore imperfect. But. what they are sincerely doing is saying to the
ACLU and the Supreme Court, "This time you have gone too far. When you

Now this could get a little con-

Buddy and Ricky Gene would be

crying out loud!.
She would follow me around at
recess. She told everyone she
liked me! And I mean everyone!


She might a been a little big for her
age and a tad more talkative than
normal-but she wasn't a monster
or anything like, that, It was just
elementary school. I wasn't inter-
ested in being anybody's Valentine

house. She hauled hay with us in
the fall. She spent the night with
us when her parents had to visit a
sick uncle. She wore pigtails;
jeans. and homemade shirts, she
was a pretty lair swimuner and she
had the best Tarzan yell of the
whole bunch ..
We .ust didn't hardly think; of
her as a girl at all!
Listen, if I had approached
Mary Hadley Hayden in .the sixth
grade with a box of. Whitman's,; a
three cent "Forever Yours" card:of,
Heaven forbid, a covey, of flowers
she would have boxed my. ears off.
The whole idea was so farfetched it
never even crossed either of 6ur
minds.
I did take her to the church
Valentine Banquet when we were
in junior high. Mother made me.
And, although Mary Hadley didn't
say it, I knew she wasn't there on
her on accord. Awkward wouldn't
even start to describe that night! I
did manage to save a little of. it
when I hit upon the idea of flipping
those English peas toward the
back, of LaRenda Bradfield's head.
Mary E. had some words with
Mary Hadley over the whole affair!
Amazing. Mary E. didn't own m&e!
I remember telling Buddy if I
could get my hands on that small,
fat, half-dressed little guy flying
around with the bow and arrows
that started this whole Valentine
mess I'd choke them little twigs
right out of his hair!
The very next year Robert Lee
Moreland talked his dad into let-
ting him have a Valentine dance in
their barn. Lefty Wiggleton and.his
band hadn't even finished their
first number when I saw Mary E.

jumped in the cattle chute, ran

made my escape through the side

SI'm talking real, genuine, qom-

I remember the day it hap-

walked into American history class
in that blue dress. I hadn't noticed
before, but she had given up Mte
pig tails. And most all of those
freckles had kinda faded.
It's funny. I didn't say nothing
to nobody about this somewhat
major "adjustment" in my think-
ing. I figured "who'd understand
something like this?" I took to
walking slowly past Mary Hadley's
house in hopes she might "Just

WILLIE TELLS ME The Star,
- is planning, to move in the near
future. That will be an adven-
* ture, as well as an experience!
It stirs .old memories of years
ago, also. The Star has always
been right here' .on' Williams
Avenue, even before, there was a
Williams Avenue. It was actually '
the first: occupant, .of Williams
Avenue.
I'll try to recall some things
that were in. place here on the
street back then.
The Star was the' first build-
ing on the street, built in 1937.
There wasn't even a street here
then. A path swung around from
S .Fourth Street [which wasn't in
place then, either] 'where Bill "
Smith drove his old 1935
-' Plymouth to park in front of the
building.
SThen, there was a dirt foot
path which cut diagonally across.

DURING THE EARLY 40's,
there was an- aircraft spotting
.tower in the middle of where the
street was to someday be located.
.It was used by volunteers during
the war to spot-aircraft at night.
The Star was headquarters,, .of
sorts, for the tower and fur-
nished government materials for
acquainting oneself with the out-
line of vai-ous aircraft, so they
would be recognizable after dark.
The old tower stood until the
street was paved, sometime after
1945.

an old wood heater in the winter

anticipating the move as if it
were some adventure, or some-
thing to look forward to.
Don't you believe it!
You'have the job of a lifetime
staring you in .the face. It'll take
a come-along or two, along with a
tractor and trailer or two, just to
move the newspaper press. After
that is completed, your job has
just started!
I remember how big a job it
was getting that behemoth into
place the first time, and getting a
specialist in newspaper presses
to' come level it up for us.
It took the better part of two
weeks to get it "leveled" to the
point where it would even run.
Multiply that by at least 40
to include all the delicate, yet oh,
so heavy moves before you .get
through!

Prices Are Down and Falling
The good news is prices are
falling and are now considerably
below the peak rate (in the neigh-
borhood of $0.700 per therm).
Even better news is the tempera-
tures are rising, so the local
demand or usage should also be
less.
Gas cbst per therm will
remain higher over the next few
months as the company recoups
the difference paid for gas and
what they were able to bill
because of the cap. Bills for most
users will be lower though as gas
usage is reduced because of high-
er temperatures.

I have found a great book for
teenagers. It. is entitled The 7
Habits of Highly Effective Teens
(Of course, there are some great
lessons for 'adults, tool) I will be
taking some space in the next
several articles to highlight some
important. topics; 'however, I
encourage you to read it for your-
selves .
It would seem that most peo-
-ple; and especially young people,
are .most concerned about the
.surface of things. That is to say,
the superficial .orstyle is more
important than the substance of
.things, In reality, and in the best
of lie s scenarios, we should be
more concerned about who we are
on the inside first. Thus, as teens
develop their seven effective
habits. they should concentrate
on the first three that have to do
with the. private self. The' first
three 3 habits are; be proactive;
put first things first; and begin
with the end in -mind-.
We enjoyed our assembly last'
week. The message was clear, and
the students got into the multi-
media format. Students gave it an
"A" grade. WHS thanks our SWAT

One out of every three per-
sons will be involved in a motor
.: vehicle crash during their lifetime

a 30 mile-per-hour crash is sub-
jected to the same force as an

When you are unbuckled. you
are twice as likely to be severely
injured or kluled. Everyone knows
that seatbelts save lives, but far
too many do not utilize available
restraints.
t Enforcement of occupant pro-
tection laws is paramount in
increasing compliance rates in
Florida. During the special

throughout the year. there will be
a zero tolerance policy in effect.

REVOLUTIONARY TERMITE CONTROL PRODUCT:

Port St. Joe, Florida-Donnie's Total Pride Pest Control, Inc. is now an authorized provider
of termite control with Termidor*, a revolutionary new termite product that has provided 100%
termite control for 5 years and counting in rigorous tests designed by the United States
Department of Agriculture and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Donnie's Total Pride Pest Control, Inc. recently completed the Termidor training program,
designed by Aventis Environmental Science, the world's leading manufacturer of products for
effective and responsible pest control. Completion of the Termidor training program
demonstrates Donnie's Total Pride Pest Control, Inc. is committed to providing its customers
with the most effective and revolutionary termite control product available today. In Termidor
training, pest management professionals learn about fipronil, the active ingredient in Termidor,
and how it works to eliminate termites from a home. Training participants also review termite
biology and the changes in termite control methods throughout history. In addition, trainees
learn about Termidor's unique mode of action, where termites die from ingesting the
termiticide, and also from touching and grooming other termites who carry Termidor on their
bodies. Through this contact and ingestion mode of action, Termidor manages termite colonies
faster than baiting systems. "Termidor is the termite solution that many of our customers have
been waiting for," said Donrie Matthews of Donnie's Total Pride Pest Control, Inc. "No
other termiticide in recent history has demonstrated 100% effectiveness at such diverse'locations :
across the country. This product kills termites in all structures, climatesand soil types- typically .
in three months or less.,."-. :'

Homeowners across the United States, but specifically in the South, have reason to fear ,
termites. According to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), termites-primarily
subterranean and Formosan termites-cost American homeowners approximately $2 billion .
every year in treatment and repair costs. Termidor is a low-dosd liquid termiticide with virtually
no odor that works faster than popular bait treatments offered to homeowners through pest
management firms. In nationwide tests, Termidor has demonstrated 100% control within 3
months of application when applied according to label directions and suggested application -
rates. Bait programs typically take 6 to .18 months to control termite colonies and often require ;
re-treatment. For additional information on termite control with Termidor, call Donnie's Total
Pride Pest Control, Inc. at (850) 229-8720 or (850) 648-3018 .

SCaution! Don't Go Overboard



With All Those Dietary Supplements


Health conscious? Don't
overdo the nutritional supple-
ments, advises a University of
Florida nutritional biochemist.
"Some people may use exces-
sive amounts of nutrients for
weight loss, athletic performance
or health maintenance, without
considering possible adverse
effects," said Bob Cousins, who
helped formulate new recommen-
dations on nutrients for the
National Academies' Institute of
Medicine in Washington, D. C.
The recommendations are
part, of a report on Dietary
References Intakes released by
the academies earlier.this month.
Cousins served on a panel of
experts that examined the nutri-
tional value of vitamins A and K,
arsenic, boron, chromium, cop-
pe,;, iodine, iron, manganese,
molybdenum, nickel, silicon,
vanadium, and zinc.
Besides updating the well-
known recommended dietary
allowances, or RDAs, the panel
estimlated-for the first time-
nutrient intake levels "that are
likely to pose no risk of adverse
health effects." These levels serve
as recommended maximums for
daily intake, and are called "toler-
able upper intake levels." The
report says these levels are not
likely to be obtained from ordi-
nary foods, Cousins said.
"These new recommended
maximums are ;a sign of the
times," said Cousins, professor
and eminent scholar with UF's
Institute of Food .and Agricultural
Sciences. "Many of the nutrients
reviewed ih our study are being
consumed in amounts that would'
be, impossible to achieve through
diet alone."
Iron supplements have long
beep used to prevent anemia, par-
ticilfarly among pregnant women,
he said. The panel's new recom-
mended intake for pregnant
woiren-27 milligrams per day-
is -about half the tolerable upper
intake level recommended for
healthy adults-45 milligrams per
da*
"Excessive iron intake can
cause gastrointestinal distress,
Cousins said. "It also may be
linked to heart disease and cancer
in people genetically predisposed
to accumulate high levels of iron."
SZinc, popular in cold reme-
dies.- has a new recommended
maximum intake of 40Trligrnam'
per day. But the.average .znc cold:.,
lozenge contains more than 20
milligrams of. -the mineral,
Cousins said. Excessive zinc
intake can lead to copper defi-
ciency and cause anemia, and
may cause immune system dis-
function.
S"A few zinc lozenges combined
with zinc intake from foods like
read meat can put your daily
itlake'way over the tolerable
upper intake level." said Cousins,
and international expert on Zinc.
In the short term, our bodies can,
cope with high levels of many
nriutrients,, but the long-term
effects are unknown."
Cousins,' who'. directs UF's
Center for Nutritional Sciences,
said nutnent'toxicity has not been
closely studied, and ethical con-
siderations limit .research on
hiuman., subjects.
S"As a result, many nutritional
silpplements have never been
tested in Well-controlled trails," he
said.
One- example is chromium,
used in diet ads such as
chromium picolinate. Chromium's
role in human nutrition is
unclear. so the panel 'did not
establish a recommended intake
for the metal, he said.
g "Chromium is believed to play
some role in glucose regulation,"
Cobusins: said: "But' long-term
effects of chromium supplementa-
tion have not been widely stud-
ied."
SSubstantial amounts of
' chromium and other nutrients are
routinely added to."meal replace-
nient" drinks and. candy-bars,
marketed to dieters arid athletes,
he said.
S"More and more products are
fortified with nutrients today, but
you probably don't want to carry a.
pocket calculator to the dinner
table to keep track," Cousins said.
'If you eat a balanced diet of foods
from each of the food groups and
Watch your supplement use, you
should be fine."
'' Cousins, elected as a member
of the National Academy of
Sciences in May 2000, said the
public is becoming more aware of
nutrition-related issues. He
believes the report will influence
advertising, food labeling and gov-
ernment policy decisions. The
reportt is the fourth in a series of
seven, developed by the United
States and Canada to review


nutritional data.
'Other recommendations in the
report include:
Witamin A-Essential to vision
and reproduction, vitamin A is
produced from carotenes found


in carrots, sweat potatoes,
broccoli, meat, and eggs.
Recommended daily intake is
900 micrograms for men, 700
for women. The' report says
that to achieve these intakes,
more vegetables and fruits
must be consumed than was
previously believed. Tolerable
upper intake level is 3 mil-
ligrams per day; excessive
intake may increase the risk of
birth defects, skull malforma-
tions in children and liver
abnormalities in adults.
* Vitamin K-Necessary for blood
clotting, vitamin K is found in
leafy green vegetables.
Adequate daily intake is 120
micrograms for men, and 90 for
women. No tolerable upper
intake level was established.
* Copper-Used for development
of connective tissue, nerve cov-
erings and, skin pigment, cop-
per is found in organ- meats,
seafood, nuts, and seeds.
'Recommended daily intake is
900 micrograms' for both men
and women. 'This is the first
time a recommended intake-for
copper was established.
Tolerable upper intake level is
10 milligrams per day; exces-'
sive intake may cause liver
damage.
* Iodine-An important compo-
nent of thyroid hormones,
iodine occurs in small amounts,
in seafood and is often added to
table salt. Recommended daily
intake is 150 micrograms for
men and women. Tolerable
upper intake level is 1.1 mil-
ligrams per. day; excessive


intake can cause abnormal
functioning of the thyroid gland
in some individuals.
* Manganese-Involved in
metabolism and bone forma-
tion, manganese is found in'
nuts, legumes, whole grains
and tea. Adequate daily intake
is 2.3 milligrams for men, 1.8
for women. Tolerable upper
intake level is 11 milligrams
,-dI n in fr d l-t- excessive


intake may cause neurological
side effects.
* Molybdenum-Used for enzyme
enhancement, molybdenum is
found in nuts, legumes and
grain products. Recommended
daily intake is 45 micrograms
for men and women. Tolerable
upper intake level is 2 mil-
ligrams per day; excessive
intake may cause impaired
