NARRAGANSETT, R.I., Dec. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeannie Serpa, a noted author and artist, today announced the publication of "Eating Your Way To Low Cholesterol", a comprehensive cookbook of 225 cholesterol lowering recipes and snacks that are easy to prepare.

Ms. Serpa studied charts, digested statistics, interviewed patients, and
