The ancient Hawaiians were svelte and strong. Their descendants are obese and prone to heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes. Two Hawaiian nutritionists set out to discover what happened. Their findings resulted in a diet that is low in fat, high in complex carbohydrates and based on the eating habits of the ancient islanders. The diet was created by Dr. Terry Shintani of the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center and Claire Hughes, a native Hawaiian nutritionist.

The county health center in Hawaiian Gardens will be expanded to alleviate congestion in the patient waiting area. The center at 22300 Wardham Ave., which the county has leased from the city since March, 1984, will gain 190 square feet of floor space at no increase in the per-square-foot cost, officials said. Under the renegotiated lease, the county will pay $1,533.28 monthly rent for the 2,520-square-foot facility.
