Cranberry juice has long been touted as an effective home remedy for preventing pesky, painful urinary tract infections, but now the folklore has more science to back it up. A review of studies in last week's Archives of Internal Medicine found that consuming cranberry products can help prevent the infections, especially for women who have had them before. Researchers from National Taiwan University found that cranberry users — either in juice or pill form — were 38 percent less likely to develop urinary tract infections compared to nonusers.

Liquid refreshment. Cold drinks. Summer coolers. Americans now gulp down, on average, a gallon of soft drinks a week. And nonalcoholic drinks are more often the focus of parties now. To encourage less alcohol use: Serve spritzers. Dilute wine or liquor with sparkling water or soda. Eliminate alcohol entirely by adding the spritz to juices or flavorings. Love margaritas? Try lime syrup spritzed with soda or bitter lemon. Give cola that Cuba Libre zing with a squirt of fresh lime.

Question: With all the recent attention paid to athletes over illegal steroid drug use, I've been wondering what harm these drugs actually do. Can you explain? Answer: There are a number of performance-enhancing drugs with different effects and safety concerns. The most common performance-enhancing drugs are derivatives of testosterone, such as androstenediol, DHEA, hCG (the same hormone used to detect pregnancy), THG, oxandrolone and stanozolol. They are well-known to increase muscle bulk and strength.

LAST WEEK, this column talked about bars, and how we - OK, I - think they're not such awful places these days. This week, I'll go as far to say their wares can be downright revolutionary. Exhibit A: The Cosmopolitan. The Williams-Sonoma Bar Guide calls the Cosmo "the most popular new drink to come along since the martini. " (Four out of four fashionable "Sex and the City" stars agree.) Tart and sweet, chilled and shaken, served straight up in a martini glass and garnished with a lime wedge, the ruby-colored beverage has become the cocktail of the new cocktail generation.

Had your fill of daiquiris, pina coladas and margaritas? You might have sampled a sex on the beach or fuzzy navel for variety, but they, too, have worn out their summertime novelty. The season's winding down, but there are trendy drinks still to be discovered. While in search of these creations, it seemed bartenders (or gifted amateurs) had mixed every juice with every liquor ever fermented. So many choices, so little time?

Hot and humid still seems to be summer's theme, and the motivation levels are dropping fast. It is time to devise some ways to revive yourself, and your children can help. Cool and refreshing drinks are what's in order for these hot days. Concocting drinks is fun for children since they can combine many of their favorite juices with sherbets, soda and even herbs. When they hit upon a family favorite, have them make a big pitcherful in the morning so that you can all sip on it throughout the day. The most thirst-quenching of all drinks is water, but after so many glasses, you want something else.

A 15-year-old boy who police say gave friends a potent drug cocktail but told them that it was cranberry juice and alcohol was arrested yesterday. The sophomore at Williamstown High School was one of three students hospitalized last month after taking GHB, a liquid narcotic often called a date-rape drug because it is undetectable when slipped into a drink. Monroe Police Detective Joseph Smart said the student, whose name was not released by police because he is a juvenile, turned himself in and has been charged with distribution and possession of narcotics on school property.

Study casts doubt on cranberry juice's role in urinary health If you've been chugging cranberry juice to ward off urinary tract infections, a new study will bum you out. Cranberry juice was no better at preventing the infections than a red imitation that lacked proanthocyanidin, the cranberry component believed to battle the bacteria that cause them. The University of Michigan study, published in the January issue of Clinical Infectious Diseases, recruited 319 female students who had been diagnosed with a urinary tract infection.

If you were served canned beets as a child and not permitted to leave the table until they were all gone, you may not be so thrilled to learn that we're now in the thick of beet season. But take heart, stalwart members of the Clean Plate Club: Fresh beets, if you haven't had the fortitude to try them yet, bear little resemblance to the canned stuff. "I never liked beets until I ate them in a restaurant and they were fresh," said Charles "Chip" Roman, who grew up in Fishtown suffering from canned beet syndrome but nonetheless became a respected chef.

Changing his mind about a jury trial the morning it was set to start, Matthew Carmichael opted for a Bucks County judge to hear his murder case yesterday. If convicted, Carmichael, 24, could get the death penalty in the slayings of Wayne and Carol Denno in their Warminster home last year. His brother David, 29, and friend Allan Dillard, 22, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder Monday and also could face the death penalty. Another Carmichael brother, Carlos, 32, pleaded guilty to third-degree murder and, like the others, will be sentenced next week.
