Brother and sisters, friends and neighbors, hear my witness. I have been to the Other Side and I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt that, indeed, there is life after fat, cholesterol, salt and caffeine.It is abundant, it is filling and it feels great.Like most Americans, I have been aware for some years that a healthful diet should be low in fat, especially saturated fat, to help avoid heart disease; that salt can exacerbate high blood pressure in the salt-sensitive; and that overweight people are more subject to hypertension and heart disease.

For me, it was the last straw. As a physician, I've worried for years about how common obesity and diet-related diseases are becoming among our nation's young people. But I was absolutely floored by the American Academy of Pediatrics' recent recommendation that children as young as 8 should be prescribed cholesterol-lowering medication when lifestyle changes don't seem to help. Second-graders on Lipitor? That recommendation has raised concerns about the effects these powerful drugs might have on developing young bodies.

Summer's fruit, raspberries and blackberries, are a healthful food choice. Not only are they low in fat and cholesterol and high in vitamin C, but a half-cup serving of raw berries has about the same fiber content as 3/4 cup of brown rice. Each raspberry or blackberry is a delicate cluster of 75 to 125 juicy drupelets, the individual fleshy lobes holding each seed of the berry. The color of raspberries should be medium to bright red; blackberries should be shiny and black. - Oregon Raspberry and Blackberry Commission

It takes courage to get steakhouse-quality at home.You've got to overcome, at least temporarily, that fat and cholesterol phobia. And you've got to have the confidence to cook an expensive piece of meat over high heat.The grade of meat is the main difference between steaks in top steakhouses and steaks served at home, experts say. The next biggest factor is the type of broiler or grill used. Restaurants cook on commercial equipment at a higher heat than home cooks, searing the juices in the meat.

The frozen dessert industry has had one bright spot in recent years: frozen yogurt. Sales of frozen yogurt have been growing an average of more than 20 percent a year since the product made its debut in the late 1980s.And while Americans have turned to frozen yogurt as a more healthful alternative to ice cream, in many ways its success is a triumph of marketing over the reality of fat and calories.The milk used in frozen yogurt is usually more than 90 percent fat-free; the yogurt cultures give it a creamy taste.

WASHINGTON - A federal judge has dismissed claims by parents from Bronx, N.Y., that their children became fat and developed high blood pressure and diabetes because they frequently ate fast food from McDonald's. U.S. District Court Judge Robert Sweet, tossing out the suit yesterday in his 65-page opinion, said McDonald's patrons either know or should know that overindulgence in Big Macs and Chicken McNuggets could cause health problems. Therefore, he wrote, it is their own fault if consumers "nonetheless choose to satiate their appetite with a surfeit of supersized McDonald's products."

Selma Kopelman of Brookline, Mass., sought help in finding Sonny Bono's pollo chicken recipe. She lost a recipe her daughter-in-law had given her. Helena Blum of Baltimore came to the rescue. She said she had a recipe from the Feb. 6, 1990, issue of Woman's Day magazine. "I never tried it. Now I will," she wrote. The dish features breaded chicken breasts, which are topped with fresh tomatoes and onions, and then baked. Blum also included other information about Bono from the article.

Comparison of French and American eating habits points to a new paradox. It may be very difficult to meet the U.S. Dietary Guidelines' recommendation to eat a wide variety of foods, or to meet the Food Guide Pyramid suggestion to choose from all five food groups daily, and, at the same time, meet our national goal to eat a diet low in fat, saturated fat and cholesterol.The French have unusually low death rates from heart disease, despite their high saturated fat diets. So the cause of this "French paradox" has been the subject of both wild speculation and serious scientific research for several years.

What do Leopold Stokowski, Nadia Boulanger, Pablo Casals and Arturo Toscanini have in common? They all conducted major orchestras when they were in their 90s. Symphony conductors have a lot of reasons to live a long life. They're fit, and they derive satisfaction from the adulation they receive from their audiences.You, too, can become fit by conducting. Although you may not be able to find an orchestra to conduct, you can still turn on a radio, or a tape recorder, pick up a stick and start conducting.

The fettuccine fascists have arrived!Recent laboratory analysis of Italian food done under the direction of Centers for Science in the Public Interest turned up some surprises, as well as some shockers that are not really surprising.What CSPI found is that pasta with red sauce is pretty low in fat, which is no big surprise. More surprising is that even when the red sauce carries meat balls or sausage, it still gets only about 30 percent of its calories from fat. In other words, it's healthier than we expected.
