For a recent birthday, Jane Brody received a T-shirt that proclaimed "Still Perfect - After All These Years." Once she stopped laughing, she began to think that it really should have said "Still Trying - After All These Years" - still trying to be good to her body, to fuel it right and move it regularly so that it will continue to be good to her. But while Jane Brody's regular menu focuses on vegetables, fruits, grains, potatoes, beans and peas "fleshed" out with circumspect amounts of low-fat dairy products, lean meats and poultry and all manner of fish and shellfish, she is no fanatic. Moderation and variety, not deprivation and denial, are her watchwords.

To keep her body from "rusting out," Jane Brody insists on daily physical activity, alternating between walking, cycling, swimming, ice skating, playing tennis, hiking, and occasionally roller-blading and cross-country skiing. The result is a woman who is more robust, energetic, youthful and trim now than she was at 15.

Jane Brody received her B.S. degree in biochemistry from the New York State College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell University in 1962, and a Masters Degree in science writing from the University of Wisconsin School of Journalism the following year. After two years as a general assignment reporter for the Minneapolis Tribune, in 1965, Jane Brody joined The New York Times as a full-time specialist in medicine and biology. In 1967, she was appointed The Times' Personal Health columnist, and her widely read and quoted column continues to appear every Wednesday in The Times and in more than 100 other newspapers around the country. In addition, Jane Brody's articles on other aspects of science and medicine appear frequently in The Times' Wednesday Health Page and Tuesday's Science Times.

Jane Brody has also written scores of magazine articles and lectures on health and nutrition to audiences both lay and professional. Jane Brody has appeared on hundreds of radio and television shows throughout the country and has received numerous prestigious awards for journalistic excellence. In 1987, Jane Brody was awarded an honorary doctorate from Princeton University, and in 1993, she received an honorary doctorate from Hamline University in St. Paul.

Jane Brody has written eight books: Secrets of Good Health, You Can Fight Cancer and Win, Jane Brody's Nutrition Book, Jane Brody's The New York Times Guide to Personal Health, Jane Brody's Good Food Book, and Jane Brody's Good Food Gourmet. Her newest cookbook, Jane Brody's Cold and Flu Fighter, was published in October 1995.

Jane Brody was born on May 19, 1941, in Brooklyn, New York, where she presently resides with her husband Richard Engquist, a lyricist, and their energetic spaniel Max. Their twin sons, Erik and Lorin, now both married, share her enthusiasm for wholesome food and fitness.
