Grain Gains.
Eating just 7 to9 grams of fiber daily can reduce high blood pressure and stroke risk, according to a review of studies in the Journal of Hypertension. To hit the 25 to 30 grams a day recommended for overall health, load up on fruit, vegetables and whole grain breads.

Breakfast Bonus.
Attention A.M. exercisers. Skipping your morning meal could make workouts seem harder, a study from Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey, indicates. Getting active without fueling up can lead to higher heart rate and perceived exertion; you fade out faster, so your routine is less effective. A mini-meal of toast with peanut butter, fruit and water is a good fix.

Green Saver.
Spinach refrigerated more than a week can lose half of its beneficial carotenoids and folate, say scientists at Penn State University at University Park. Go for frozen or canned, which holds nutrients longer.

Tea Total.
Some instant tea mixes can containe levels of flouride that exceed limits set for beverages by the FDA, preliminary research from The American Journal of Medicine reveals. A little flouride can be good for teeth, nut long term overexposure to the mineral may led to bone and joint disease. Sip in moderation or alternate with lemonade.

Cool New Treats.
Ice cream addicts no loner need to choose between tasty but fattening flavors and less palatable lowfat versions. New from Haagen-Dazs: Seven light options designed to spoil your taste buds without putting the freeze on a healthy diet. Made with skim milk, each contains fewer calories and 50 percent less fat thatn premium varieties.

Slimmer Sipping.
Women who consume one alcoholic beverage a day have a body mass index nearly two points lower than those who drink less often but have more alcohol when they do imbibe, researchers at the National Institute on Alcoholic Abuse and Alcoholism in Bethesda, Maryland, report. The latter group may indulge in heavier meals along with theur extra cocktails.

The producer of Splenda claims its crystals are "made from sugar", but the consumer watchdogs at the Center for Science in the Public Interest in Washington D.C., take issue with that wording, saying the product should not be marketed as antural. The manufacturers' response? Chlorine is used to make the sweetener, but the process starts with pure cane sugar. Regardless, the FDA deems Splenda safe for consumption.
