For computer owners with heart disease, information about lowering their blood cholesterol is a mouse-click away on a new interactive Web site recently launched by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI). The site's purpose is to provide accurate information and simple and practical tips to help people with coronary heart disease (CHD) lower their low-density lipoprotein cholesterol to the goal level of 2.59 mmol/L (100 mg/dL).

The site features a diet calculator and a virtual kitchen, grocery store, and cafe, designed to help people with CHD eat less saturated fat and cholesterol at home and when dining out. Visitors can get an estimate of their daily dietary allowance for saturated and total fat, cholesterol, energy, and sodium, based on their height, weight, age, sex, and activity level; select foods for a day's meals; and see how choices compare with their daily dietary allowances. A virtual fitness room provides information about developing a fitness program.
