Haney AP Science Writer BOSTON - Given the choke between going on • strict low- cholesterol diet (hard) and taking a choteteroHowwin* <kug (eaiy), the earier route mty be the better one for preventing heart disease, a study suggests. The study, conducted on people with total cholesterol levels around 260, found that toe diet modest^ reduced blood levels of the ted form of cholesterol, but equally reduced the protective form of cholesterol Hie choterteroHoweriBg drug tovostatta, on the other hand; markedly reduced the bed cholesterol while slightry increasing good cholesterol. The study was paid for by Merck & Co., which makes kws- tatin. It was conducted independently of the company at the Heart Disease Prevention Clinic in Minneapolis. The National Cholesterol Education Program and many other health organizations recommend dietary changes as the first step toward bringing down high cholesterol. To see if this really does any good, the researchers - led by Dr. Donald B. Hunninghake- put 111 men and women living at home on the cholesterol program's Step 2 diet, which rigorously limits consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol. The |ni I k jjptnh were urged to limit their Intake of saturated fat to leas than 7 percent of their total daib-calories. They found that people's bad cholesterol, known as LDL, dropped 5 percent on the low-fat regimen. But this was offset by a 5 percent decrease In their HDL, the good cholesterol. Stymied Democrats hunt answers By Karen Ball Associated Press WASHINGTON - Democrats, dismayed by the aura of gloom suddenly engulfing President Clinton's economic and other proposals, say he is partly to blame for his troubles with Congress — but then so are they. "Most of us on the Hill are trying to pick up the pieces," Rep. Tim Penny, D-Minn., said. "We've got some frayed feelings that are going to take some time to heal... Clinton's got his work cut out for him." Congressional Democrats surveyed at midweek also said nightmarish assessments of Clinton's prospects over the last 10 days were far overstated. They said he can bounce back if he plays his cards right. Clinton's first big setback came last week when he was forced to drop his $12 billion jobs-stimulus package in the face of a Republican filibuster. Then Monday, administration budget chief Leon Panetta, in a burst of candor, said many of Clinton's major proposals were faring uphill battles in Congress. Democrats said Clinton brought needless agony on himself with a too much-too soon rush to keep big campaign promises and a failure to focus like a laser on one or two major issues at a time. They said relations with vitally important Republicans, strained by Clinton's failure to build bridges and an attempt by Democratic leaders to railroad legislation, must now be repaired. Military demands Bosnia strategy BRUSSELS, Belgium (AP) -The world's generals are pushing politicians to decide exactly what they want to achieve in Bosnia before they turn from diplomacy to forte. The Yugoslav president, echoing the fears of VS. and European leaders who are contemplating military intervention, warns that anything but a political settlement would lead to "a long and permanent war." Frustrated by the refusal of Bosnian Serbs to end the war, President Clinton said Wednesday he is determined to take tougher action. He is considering air strikes against Serb artillery sites and exempting Bosnian Muslims from a U.N. arms em- bargo. Pentagon leaders, however, doubt that ah- strikes would stop Serb aggression. And there is growing concern in Congress that the use of American military forces would get the United States bogged down in a Vietnam-style entanglement with an escalating commitment of troops! Yugoslav President Dobrica Cosic warned against the possibility of Western air strikes against Bosnian Serb gun emplacements and supply routes. ' Adm. Mike Boorda, a NATO commander in charge of US. Navy Forces in Europe and also the chief of allied airdrops in Bosnia, said he wanted detailed objectives for air strikes.
