The school bus had broken down and was idled by the side of the road. As Sharon Sidorick, chaperone of her daughter Brianna's fourth-grade class trip to the Trenton Museum, waited for the bus to be fixed, she noticed Brianna take a drink of water, and another and another. Brianna hadn't been herself for a while. She seemed constantly tired, but wasn't that to be expected from a 10-year-old who spent her spare time practicing the trumpet, playing soccer and performing jazz and ballet routines in dance recitals?

What makes you eat? According to a study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, individuals can identify what sets them up to overeat by looking at their eating behavior. That includes what, for them, is a cue to eat, how they eat, and what the consequences and rewards there are for eating. The study recommends using a successful dieter as a model and deciding in advance what to do in "high-risk" situations: negative moods, interpersonal conflicts and social pressures.

RONNIE Polaneczky's March 30 column ("Taken to the Cleaners") was a distortion of a case in which years of illegal dumping of hazardous materials by a small business was uncovered by a SEPTA construction project. Debonair Dry Cleaners, 60th and Market, was cited by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for illegally dumping hazardous residue from the cleaning process in the ground beneath and around its property. As a result of the volume of this dumping, over years, the foundation of the building was undermined.

WASHINGTON - The Food and Drug Administration is cracking down on more than a dozen companies that market illegal diabetes treatments, ranging from bogus dietary supplements to prescription drugs sold online without a prescription. The products aim to cash in on the country's diabetes epidemic, which affects nearly 26 million Americans. Regulators worry that consumers who buy such unapproved products could put off getting legitimate medical care. The FDA sent warning letters to 15 companies, here and abroad, ordering them to stop selling diabetes treatments that violate U.S. drug laws.

The number of diabetics in America is growing. The number of unemployed pharmaceutical workers seems to be doing the same. That combination is bad, unless you are Novo Nordisk. A relatively small Danish-based drug company with a U.S. home in Princeton, Novo Nordisk is in a sweet spot in the pharmaceutical landscape because the core of its business is diabetes. With 40 straight quarters of double-digit growth, the company said Friday it plans a 15 percent increase to its U.S. workforce, meaning about 615 more jobs, through the end of this year.

BREAST IMPLANTS Forget silicone. Peanut-oil-filled implants could mean safer breast enlargements for thousands of women who have the surgery each year, says Washington University radiologist Judy Destouet. Because the oil is transparent, such implants do not interfere with X-ray mammography for breast cancer the way silicone breast implants can, Destouet says. The new implants could be commerically available in about two years. SWIMMING-POOL COVERS Swimming-pool owners, beware: Solar-pool covers pose a special drowning risk to young children, who may incorrectly believe they are solid enough to support their weight, a study in the journal Pediatrics reports.

Until recently, patients with diabetes could get only insulin and one type of drug from their doctors. Today, a treatment revolution is under way, giving hope for longer, healthier lives to the 16 million Americans with the burgeoning disease. "The options that we have available to treat someone with diabetes are light-years more than 10 years ago," said Frank Vinicor, director of the diabetes division for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who will attend the American Diabetes Association meeting opening today in Philadelphia.
