There is a wonderful story about a young girl who had no family and no one to love her.

One day,feeling very sad and lonely,she was walking through a grassland when she noticed a small butterfly caught in a thorn (荆棘)bush. The young girl carefully released the Butterfly. Instead of flying away,the little butterfly changed into a beautiful fairy. The young girl rubbed her eyes in disbelief.

“For your wonderful kindness,”the good fairy said to the girl,“I will give you any wish you would like.”The little girl thought for a moment and then replied,“I want to be happy.”

The fairy leaned toward her and whispered in her ear. Then the fairy disappeared.

As the little girl grew up,there was no one in the land as happy as she. Everyone asked her secret of happiness .She would only smile and answer,“The secret of my happiness is that I listened to a good fairy when I was a little girl.”

When she was very old and on her deathbed,the neighbors all gathered around her,that her unbelievable secret of happiness would die with her. “Tell us,please,”they begged,“Tell us what the good fairy said.”The lovely old woman simply smiled and said,“She told me that everyone,no matter how secure they seemed,no matter how old or young,how rich or poor,had need of me.”

The most important holiday in spring,especially for Christians (基督徒),is Easter. This Christian holiday is not on the same date every year,but it‘s always on a Sunday. It can be any Sunday between March 22 and April 25. Many people celebrate Easter by buying new clothes. Children celebrate by hunting for colored eggs that their parents have hidden around the house. People also give Easter baskets filled with candy and other goodies to one another to celebrate the day.

But the holiday is more than new clothes and good things to eat. On Easter,many people go to church to celebrate Jesus‘resurrection (复活)from the dead.

Most people color them. Some people hide them. Others just eat them. But no matter what one does with Easter eggs,they are an important Easter tradition throughout the Western world.

People from many different cultures celebrate Easter. In both America and Belgium,children look for Easter eggs hidden on lawns and in bushes. In America,children believe the eggs are hidden by the Easter bunny (复活节兔子)。But in Belgium,the hidden eggs are supposed to have fallen from church bells. In Bulgaria,red Easter eggs are lucky in churches;Bulgarian families also hit these Easter eggs together to see whose is the strongest. The winner looks forward to good fortune that year. Still dozens of other Easter traditions exist. In parts of Austria,for example,children sing from door to door and are rewarded with colorful eggs.

Cancer researchers urged people on Wednesday to take more vitamin D to lower risk of cancer,saying studies showed a clear link. "Our suggestion is for people to increase their intake,through diet or a vitamin supplement," Dr. Cedric Garland said in a telephone interview.

Garland's research team reviewed 63 studies,including several large long-term ones,on the relationship between vitamin D and certain types of cancer worldwide between 1966 and 2004. "There's nothing that has this ability to prevent cancer," he said,urging governments and public health officials to do more to fortify foods with vitamin D.Garland is part of a University of California at San Diego Moores Cancer Center team that published its findings this week online in the American Journal of Public Health. V itamin D is found in milk,as well as in some fortified orange juice,yogurt and cheeses,usually at around 100 international units (IU) a serving. People might want to consider a vitamin supplement to raise their intake to 1000 IUs per day,Garland said,adding that it was well within the safety guidelines established by the National Academy of Sciences.

The authors said that taking more vitamin D could be especially important for people living in

northern areas,which receive less vitamin D from sunshine.

African Americans,who don't produce as much of the vitamin because of their skin colour,could also benefit significantly from a higher intake,the authors said.

66. According to the passage,people are advised to take more V itamin D because_________.

A. it is nutritious

B. it can‘t harm people’s health

C. it can lower cancer risk

D. it is not taken enough every day

67. Which of the following can not help people get more V itamin D?

A. Have some sunshine

B. Have more meat

C. Have more fortified cheese

D. Have a vitamin supplement

68.Who can Garland probably be?

A. A health researcher

B. A doctor

C. A scientist

D. A public health official

69.Which of the following food can lower people‘s chance of getting cancer?

A. Milk

B. Fortified orange juice

C. Fortified yogurt

D. All of the above

70.People from which area should take more V itamin D according to the passage?

A. Asian people

B. African people

C. American people

D. European people
