The July 1998 issue of Yahoo Internet Life has featured this site on page 97 of it's

The section says "Amidst all the hoopla, some ordinary people are doing extraordinary things on line. We hear over-inflated hype about the Internet every day, most of which hasn't a chance of coming true, and wouldn't be much use even if it did. But that doesn't change the fact that every day people are using the Net to connect in ways that were never possible before. In that spirit, every month we bring you Touched By The Net, a salute those who are using the Web to make a difference, to help others, or just to reach out to their fellow humans."  The review is by Lisa Napoli and she writes:

"Promoting a Lifesaving Diet

Battling her husband's heart disease meant a reorganization of Rosemary Fisher's kitchen. She helped him control the threat by changing the family diet. Then she fought a severe medical problem of her own--osteoporosis--with a combination of recipes. The 79-year-old nutritionist from Rochester, New York (left), has written four books about healthy eating, and she donates all the proceeds to charity. Now she's got a Web site, too. "I just want to share what I have learned and experienced with others so they have the same chance I did for increased health and happiness," she says."
