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.

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.
