"Heartburn. " A comedy-drama starring Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson. Directed by Mike Nichols. Screenplay by Nora Ephron, based on her novel. Photographed by Nestor Almendros. Music by Carly Simon. Running time: 108 minutes. A Paramount release. My first question is, why? "Heartburn," Mike Nichols' film version of Nora Ephron's celebrated roman a clef about her marriage to a philanderer (superstar journalist Carl Bernstein), is an unusually cozy, pleasant - even warm-hearted - little comedy.

Nora Ephron really doesn't want to do this, doesn't think that she should, but in the interest of accuracy agrees to talk "on background" about the filming, completed in Washington last fall, of Heartburn. Directed by Mike Nichols and starring Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson, the movie was adapted by Ephron from her best-selling novel based, more or less, on the breakup of her marriage to Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein. This is a week after she was guest speaker at a Mayflower Hotel benefit for the National Women's Law Center in Washington.

"Tis the season to have heartburn. Fa la-la-la-la, la la, la . . . burp. Was it the butter-cream frosting? (rumble) or maybe the cream cheese and olives? Whatever the culprit, it's heartburn and indigestion season. What lights that fire that rumbles below? The ingredients are simple: stress (the whole family's arriving when?, and CATS. Not the four-legged, long-tailed variety, but the ones that cause digestive distress: Caffeine, Aspirin (and related ibuprofen compounds like Advil)

Got gout from the gooey sweetness of the last week's storybook weddings? Heartburn is a refreshingly astringent antidote. Nora Ephron's novel about a marriage made in hell - well, a fool's paradise, anyway - makes for a devilishly funny movie directed with misanthropic relish by Mike Nichols. An unexpectedly whiny Meryl Streep and an expectedly wily Jack Nicholson star as the cookbook author and political columnist who marry and live happily never after. Not since Nichols' The Graduate and Carnal Knowledge has a movie thrilled in the recoil of American mavericks.

Chocolate-lovers may be distressed by a study released last week that found that the object of their affection, the renowned confectionery cure for heartache, is also a primary cause of heartburn. In people already prone to acid indigestion, even a few tablespoons of chocolate can induce the familiar irritation of the esophagus known as heartburn, reported Donald Castell, chairman of gastroenterology at Bowman Gray School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, N.C. He made his report at a meeting of digestive-disease specialists in Chicago.

SmithKline Beecham encountered a setback yesterday as it tried to make the case that its widely used ulcer drug should be made available without a prescription for treatment of heartburn. SmithKline asked the Food and Drug Administration for permission to sell a milder version of cimetidine, also known by the brand name Tagamet, over the counter. But at an all-day hearing yesterday, two FDA committees said that while the milder Tagamet appeared to be safe enough to use without a prescription, they were not convinced that SmithKline had proven that the drug was effective in treating heartburn and related symptoms.

A weaker, non-prescription form of the popular anti-ulcer drug Tagamet will be on supermarket shelves soon following its approval yesterday by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for over-the-counter sale. Its approval as a treatment for occasional heartburn had been widely expected since an FDA advisory committee in March recommended Tagamet be made available without a prescription at lower doses. Tagamet's manufacturer, SmithKline Beecham PLC, plans to announce the FDA approval today of Tagamet HB. Tagamet HB follows Pepcid AC Acid Controller as the second stomach-acid- reduction drug to win FDA over-the-counter approval.

There's an ancient Greek belief, according to Graduate Hospital physician George Ahtaridis, that the appetizing smells created by the grilling and cooking of food are pleasing not only to humans, but also to the gods. "We call it Knissa," said Ahtaridis, a gastroenterologist in Graduate's Digestive Health Institute, as he grilled steaks, vegetables and rack of lamb in the courtyard of his hospital yesterday afternoon. But what's good for the Greek gods may not be as good for the human gut. And as grillers everywhere fire up their barbies this Fourth of July weekend, Ahtaridis and other physicians are warning that fatty, spicy meat cooked on the barbecue can lead to sickness, heartburn and cancer.

"I'LL HAVE what she's having. " That line is one of the most iconic in film history, and it's delivered in "When Harry Met Sally," right after Meg Ryan's Sally demonstrates that, yes, women do, in fact, fake orgasms. It's spoken by director Rob Reiner's mother, Estelle, and it was written by Nora Ephron, who passed away on Tuesday from acute myeloid leukemia. Pound for pound, "When Harry Met Sally" is one of the best romantic comedies of all time, complete with a meet-cute, a will-they-or-won't-they and an epic speech at end as Billy Crystal's Harry declares his love for his best friend, Sally (Ryan)

ALZHEIMER'S RISK. People born to young parents may be less likely to develop Alzheimer's disease. The average age of the fathers of 77 Japanese Alzheimer's victims at the time of their birth was 31.4 years, that of the mothers 26.6 years - as much as six years older than a comparison group, reports Psychology Today magazine. AIDS JOBS. A New York company has been created to give and get jobs for people with AIDS. The goals of Multitasking Systems of New York Inc., believed to be the first company of its kind nationwide, are to help put unemployed people - even only a few - with AIDS back to work, and to show American businesses that they can thrive while employing these people.

A tiny magnetic bracelet implanted at the base of the throat is greatly improving life for some people with chronic heartburn who need more help than medicine can give them. It's a novel way to treat severe acid reflux, which plagues millions of Americans and can raise their risk for more serious health problems. It happens when a weak muscle doesn't close after swallowing as it should. That lets stomach juices splash back into the throat. Drugs such as Nexium and Prilosec reduce acid.

When I finally met Nora Ephron six years ago, I did something I had never done before in a few thousand interviews and I haven't done since.   I told her I loved her. I have always loved her, since first reading her Esquire pieces in the 1970s. Of course, her admirers are legion. We love her extraordinary wit, her inimitable style, her appetite for risk and change. Her actual appetite, for butter, pate, steak, pie, and her rejection of the egg-white omelet, of which she noted, "People who eat them think they're doing something virtuous when they are instead merely misinformed.

Nora Ephron, the humorist, novelist, foodie, and writer/director of films including Sleepless in Seattle , You've Got Mail and Julie & Julia , died Tuesday night in New York. She was 71. The cause was complications from acute myeloid leukemia. A second-generation filmmaker (her parents were Desk Set scribes Henry and Phoebe Ephron), Ms. Ephron was a throwback to wisecrackers such as Anita Loos and Dorothy Parker, wits who wrapped social observations in humor.

CHICAGO - An acid reflux drug often used for hard-to-treat asthma doesn't help children with the breathing disease and may cause side effects, a study in 300 children found. The results echo recent research showing that a similar heartburn drug didn't work in adults with asthma. Use of these heavily promoted acid-blocking drugs, called proton pump inhibitors, has more than doubled in U.S. children in recent years, but the study results suggest doctors should put the brakes on that practice, said University of Arizona asthma expert Dr. Fernando Martinez.

Eating nuts daily could lower cholesterol If you're trying to lower your cholesterol, about a third of a cup of nuts a day could help, according to a study last week in the Archives of Internal Medicine. Researchers from Loma Linda University in California and colleagues in Spain examined data from 25 studies of nut consumption, looking at factors such as weight and diet type (Mediterranean, low fat, etc.). The researchers found that 67 grams of nuts daily, or about one-third of a cup, improved cholesterol levels, and the impact was greater for people who started out with high cholesterol.

Everyone assumed that the Phillies had finalized their rotation, then they landed Freddy Garcia. Some also assumed that the Phils had their catchers in the fold, but they are expected to announce today that they have signed catcher Rod Barajas to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with a club option for 2008. Barajas, who won a World Series title with Arizona in 2001, is expected to share time with catcher Carlos Ruiz. It seems likely that Barajas and Ruiz will compete for the opening-day job, with catcher Chris Coste in line for a position on the bench.

As North American division president, Brennan, 51, has been both credited and criticized for AstraZeneca's successful and controversial U.S. marketing of the blockbuster heartburn medication. He will carry both reputations to London, where he will take the helm in January of the world's fifth-biggest pharmaceutical company, from retiring CEO and founder Tom McKillop.

The Madison, N.J., company, whose pharmaceutical headquarters are in Collegeville, also said production at its new factory in Ireland had taken off slightly better than expected. In addition, it reported steady progress in settling roughly 60,000 remaining claims in its product-liability case involving the diet-drug combination known as fen-phen.
