13. Warning Signs
Each year, more than
350,000 heart attack victims
die before reaching the hospi-
tal because they refuse to
take their symptoms serious-
ly. These victims, who waited
an average of three hours
before deciding to get help,
make up nearly two-thirds of
the nation's annual heart
attack death toll of about
540,000, says the American
Heart Association. Warning
signs include uncomfortable
pressure or pain in the center
of your chest lasting two
minutes or longer; pain
spreading to shoulders, neck
or arms; and dizziness, faint-
ing, sweating, nausea or
shortness of breath.

12. Early To Bed
America's leading execu-
tives may have burned the
midnight oil to get where
they are but once they reach
the top, most of them go to
bed well before midnight. A
survey of 100 of the country's
largest corporations found
that 22 percent of the execu-
tives were in bed by 10 p.m.
and five percent have a mid-
night bedtime. During the
work week, the average bed-
time was 10:47 p.m.; the
average wake-up time was
5:49 a.m.

Coolidge

was said to be protective
against osteoporosis, which is
the underlying cause in many
hip fractures.
10. Fit Children
American children are not
as fit now as they were in the
1960s. Indeed, studies show
that up to half are not getting
enough exercise to develop
healthy hearts and lungs.
Sports that stress speed,
power and agility — such as
football, basketball and
baseball — are games of skill;
they do not necessarily pro-
mote fitness. Children should
be encouraged to participate
in a variety of "lifetime" ac-
tivities (activities that can be
carried on into adulthood),
like bicycling, swimming, run-
ning, fast walking, aerobics
and tennis.
11. Take Your Pills
Americans spend $17 bil-
lion per year on prescription
medicines. But many lose the
drugs' benefits by taking
them improperly — at the
wrong time of day, for exam-
ple. One study indicated that
half of all prescription drugs
are taken incorrectly. Another
study showed that a major
difference between people
who can live independently
and those who must go to
nursing homes is their abili-
ty to take their medications
as prescribed.

would like to offer you an opportunity to improve your health and general fitness.
We believe that the general population spends at least two-thirds of its waking
hours on its FEET. This is significant when you consider that, not only do our
feet carry each of our individual bodies, but are involved in most every move-
ment we make throughout our day.
LOOK AT YOUR FEET! What you might find are some corns and callouses,
ingrown nails or thick nails that you can't even cut. What about your tired
aching legs and feet from standing on the concrete floors at work? Or perhaps
the itching and flaking of what is commonly known as Athlete's Foot. WHAT

Exercise And Nutrition:
Facts Vs. Fiction

So, you think you don't have
to watch what you eat
because you exercise. To
achieve cardiovascular
health, good eating habits are
essential, and exercise en-
courages positive changes in
other lifestyle habits, like
eating.
Like a car, your body will
not function properly without
a well-balanced mixture of
fuel. Unfortunately, a great
many myths exist about the
nutritional needs of physical-
ly active people. One of those
myths is that physically ac-
tive peple do not need to
follow the American Heart
Association's recommenda-
tions for a cholesterol-
lowering diet because exer-
cise burns cholesterol. Ab-
solutely not true.
Exercise
will
not
automatically reduce your
cholesterol level. The truth is
exercise may increase the
level of "good" cholesterol
(HDL) in the blood, but it will
not reduce the "bad"
cholesterol (LDL) that can
cause so many problems.
Cholesterol-lowering diets are
important for reducing the
blood cholesterol with most

people whether sendentary or
active. A high blood
cholesterol is considered to be
one of the three major risk
factors contrituting to heart
disease — the leading cause of
death in the United States.
Another myth related to
nutrition and exercise is that
exercise significantly in-
creases vitamin and mineral
requirements. Again, not
true. The vitamin and
mineral requirements of
physically active and seden-
tary people are similar with
the exception of a slight in-
crese in the need for B-
vitamins where exercise is
part of a person's routine.
And you may have heard
the myth about exercise in-
creasing one's appetite, mak-
ing exercise a barrier for
weight reduction. The truth is
that moderate exercise ac-
tually improves appetite con-
trol in most people on low-
calorie diets.
The American Heath
Association dietary
guidelines for healthy
American adults offer a
sound, well-balanced ap-
proach for nutritious eating.
