You'll like the way you look and the way you see in our no-line bifocals. No lines. So you won't have to re-focus between near and far. In fact, with Varilux lenses For those who refuse to be seen in bifocals, we offer the perfect disguise. you'll see clearly near, far and all the distances in between. Make an appointment for your yearly eye exam and insist on genuine Varilux lenses. Go ahead. Because your biggest excuse for avoiding bifocals has just been ehminated. VARiLUX NO-LINE BIFOCALS Should the ratio of polyunsaturated fat to monounsaturated fat in a margarine affect your choice? Probably not. While past research indicates that polyunsaturates reduce high-density lipoproteins, the "good" cholesterol that lowers heart attack risk, recent long-term studies have not found this effect. And most experts agree that research linking polyunsaturates with cancer in laboratory rats doesn't apply to humans. Since both polyunsaturates and mo-nounsaturates help lower blood cholesterol when they're substituted for saturated fat in a lowfat diet, consumers should choose a margarine that's low in saturated fat, and not worry about the polyunsaturated to monounsaturated ratio. If you're watching your weight, look for a spread (such as Country Crock) or a diet margarine (Promise Light, Diet Mazola or Weight Watchers Reduced Calorie). Both types contain more water and less fat per tablespoon than regular margarines, though the percentage of calories from fat is the same. As for cooking and salad oils they have no trans fatty acids, no sodium and no cholesterol. All oils contain 120 calories and 14 grams of fat per tablespoon. Like butter and margarine, oils differ in the amount of saturated, polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats they contain. Canola oil is the lowest in saturated fat, olive oil is the highest in monounsaturated fat and safflower oil is the highest in polyunsaturated fat. Whichever type of fat you choose, don't use too much. Remember to keep your daily fat intake at or below 30 of calories (about 60 to 80 grams for 1,800 to 2,400 calories), and cut down on saturated fats.

Morning, noon ':2Ste'and night we sip and slurp our coffee, second only to soft drinks as the country's favorite beverage. But like any high-profile success story, the brew has attracted scrutiny. Over the years, hundreds of studies on its health effects have appeared in medical journals. So what's a java junkie to do? Actually, coffee consumption has already begun to taper off. We now drink an average of 3.4 cups a day down nearly a cup from a peak of 4.2 cups a day in 1962. Some of coffee's effects are clear-cut. Coffee causes heartburn the result of stomach acid backing up into the esophagus by relaxing the
