People who suffer from depression not only endure the well-known symptoms of hopelessness and despair but also run a heightened risk of developing a heart attack, according to a Johns Hopkins study released yesterday.Researchers who followed 2,000 residents of East Baltimore for more than a decade found that those with histories of clinical depression had a 4 1/2 times greater chance of having a heart attack than did those with no such history."For people who are depressed, this is all the more reason to get treated," said Dr. William Eaton, a professor of mental hygiene at the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health.

DALLAS -- Two studies released this week provide more evidence that cocaine increases the risk of a heart attack."We believe it is a serious problem and definitely underreported," said Dr. Shereif Rezkalla of Marshfield, Wis., co-author of one of the new studies discussed this week in Dallas at the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology.The death of 22-year-old University of Maryland basketball star Len Bias in 1986 is the best-known case of a cocaine-related heart attack. A report published two years ago cited at least 58 such cases described in medical journals.

Dear Dr. Solomon: My husband is recovering from a heart attack, and his doctor has referred him to an exercise program. I know that other heart patients take part in exercise programs, but my husband was never physically active. How can it do him any good to start an exercise program after he's had a heart attack when he never exercised before he had his attack? I think it can kill him. -- Mrs. J.J. McC., BaltimoreDear Mrs. McC.: The purpose of involving a cardiac patient in an exercise program is to improve physical conditioning, not to make an athlete out of a non-athlete.

WASHINGTON - Republican Vice Presidential candidate Dick Cheney, who has a long history of cardiac disease, suffered a mild heart attack early yesterday, his fourth, and underwent surgery to open a clogged artery at George Washington University Hospital. Cheney, 59, admitted himself to the hospital in the pre-dawn hours with chest and shoulder pain. After tests showed a heart artery had narrowed since his last checkup in 1996, doctors performed a balloon angioplasty to clear the blockage and inserted a stainless steel "stent" to keep the artery open.

Efforts to reduce lead exposure in the United States have been a good news-bad news affair - and the bad-news side of the ledger just got a bit longer. Although the removal of most lead from gasoline and paint in the United States has driven exposure levels down - way down from levels seen 30 years ago - new research sharply lowers the level of lead exposure that should be considered safe. And it expands the population of people who need to worry about the toxic chemical. Concern about lead exposure has long focused on children, who can suffer mental impairment and later fertility problems at elevated levels.
