Cholesterol Cures

Promising cures, this quasi-encyclopedia delivers somewhat less than that, although what it does offer is worthwhile. Following the substantial introduction by Dr. William Castelli of the prestigious Framingham (Mass.) Cardiovascular Institute, hundreds of nuggets of practical advice from nutritionists and physicians and findings from researchers are gathered in 60 main entries, including Fish, Mediterranean Diet, Polyunsaturated Fat, Exercise and Weight Loss. Catchy subheadings encourage browsing, but cross-references are sparse and coverage is uneven: while desserts and television viewing have entries, there are none for niacin and fake fats such as Olestra. The final sections feature an earnest, fairly unappetizing 30-day menu plan designed to lower cholesterol by 30 points, and a 78-page fat and cholesterol counter for 500 foods. (May)
