that suggests Mediterranean fare is a

for people whose cholesterol levels are
Olive oil is high in mono-unsaturated
fat, and the research shows that eating
food rich in this fat effectively lowers
cholesterol levels in the blood, just as
very low-fat diet does.
To benefit from this diet, however,
people must largely give up saturated
fat and replace it with the mono

Many health guidelines urge Ameri

Heart disease also is relatively un
usual in such Mediterranean regions as
southern Italy and Greece, where olive
oil is used liberally.

LINCOLN The Legislature gave
second-round approval Wednesday to a
bill that would appropriate $5 million
in state funds to develop clinical vete
rinary and food processing centers.
Before LB1038 was advanced to the
final stage of floor action, however, a
pair of rural senators warned that the
state should brace for a much larger
financial commitment than $5 million.
Sens. Loran Schmit of Bellwood and
Tom Vickers of Farnam said the state
must be prepared to pay maintenance
costs once the centers are established,
even in lean fiscal years.
"It's like building a six-bedroom
house and then complaining about the
air conditioning costs," Schmit said.
The measure, which was advanced
on a voice vote, would earmark $5 mil
lion in state funds, $7 million in federal
support and $2 million in private con

for Americans," said Dr. Scott M.
Grundy, who conducted the study. "We
may have been a little too rigid in our
dietary recommendations, saying that
everybody has to eat the same diet to
get the benefit of cholesterol lower
ing." Grundy's research, conducted at the
Veterans Administration Medial Cen
ter in Dallas, was published in Thurs
day's New England Journal of Medi
cine. The American Heart Association
recommends that all Americans limit
their fat consumption to 30 percent of
the calories they eat each day. Satu
rated fat should make up no more than
10 percent of the total.
For those with elevated blood cho
lesterol levels, the association urges
people to limit their fat intake to 20
percent of their daily calories.
Dr. W. Virgil Brown of New York's
Mount Sinai Medical Center, chairman
of the heart association's nutrition
committee, says the association is not
likely to change its recommendations
as a result of the latest research.
