NORTH AMERICAN PRECIS SYNDICATE
Many believe that the idea “you are what you eat” has
particular signifcance for seniors.
That’s because following a healthy diet can often lead
directly to a better quality of life, including being more
alert, having a stronger immune system, more energy,
faster recuperation times and the ability to do a better
job managing chronic health problems.
It’s also said that eating well can lead to a more posi-
tive outlook and better emotional balance. Plus, it can
also help to keep muscles, bones, organs and other body
parts stronger over time.
Stay Hydrated
Part of a proper diet is making sure you drink enough
water. Seniors can be prone to dehydration because their
bodies may lose some of their ability to regulate fuid lev-
els and their sense of thirst on a regular basis. Drinking
water with meals can help them avoid urinary tract infec-
tions, constipation and possibly confusion.
Take Your Vitamins
Even those who pay attention to nutrition can some-
times beneft from taking a vitamin supplement, par-
ticularly when it comes to getting enough vitamin B and
vitamin D.
n After age 50, a person’s stomach produces less gas-
tric acid, which can make it diffcult to absorb vitamin
B12, a vitamin needed to help keep blood and nerves vi-
tal. In order to get the recommended daily intake (2.4
mcg) of B12, it may be necessary for some to take a sup-
plement.
n As people get older, their skin is less effcient when
it comes to synthesizing vitamin D, which, together with
calcium, can help to protect older adults from osteoporo-
sis, so taking a supplement may be to your beneft.
In both cases, as with any vitamin or nutritional sup-
plement, it’s best to consult your doctor before beginning
a supplement program.
Get an Assessment
Since poor eating habits are a primary concern among
the senior population, home health care aides are play-
ing an increasingly important role in providing support
for those who might be at risk. In light of this and other
issues, Interim HealthCare — one of the leaders in the
home care industry, providing services to over 50,000
individuals nationwide — offers a free independent liv-
ing assessment for seniors.

No One Should Die of Colon Cancer Today
I recently had a colonoscopy and everything was good. Great news since at age 44 I did have precancerous polyps removed
from my colon. Presently colon cancer is one of the most preventable cancers. The large majority of cancers of the colon start
as a polyp. A polyp is like those pesky little skin tags that some people get under their arms or around their neck (these on the
skin are rarely cancerous). There can be two kinds of polyps in the colon (also called the large bowel or large intestine). One
kind is called hyperplastic; the other is adenomatous. The hyperplastic polyps are like the benign skin tags. The adenomatous
polyps will become a cancerous growth about 80% of the time. The good news is that this process from polyp to cancer takes
a long time, about seven years.
So, to prevent colon cancer, everyone should get a colonoscopy somewhere between 40 and 50 years of age. Statistically,
colon cancer rarely occurs before age 40. If there is a family history, bowel problems (chronic constipation or diarrhea),
bleeding, or a sudden change of bowel habits, the first colonoscopy should be done in the early forties. If no problem, then
one can wait a bit, but have this done at least by age 50.
The colonoscopy is simple. The clean out prep with laxatives the day before is the worst part and that really is not that bad.
A light anesthetic is given by IV so there is no pain or embarrassment to this procedure. A flexible fiber optic scope is inserted
into the rectum and passed all the way to the junction of the small bowel and large bowel. If there are polyps present, the
Doctor (surgeon or gastroenterologist) will remove them at that time and they will be sent in for analysis (biopsy). Follow-up
scopes will be scheduled based on the results. Two to five year for adenomatous (pre-cancerous) polyps and seven to ten
years for hyperplastic polyps.
Less invasive preventive measures are very helpful to insure that the polyps do not develop in the first place. Fiber is
extremely important in the diet. Both soluble fiber from things like apples and oatmeal are important and insoluble fiber from
vegetables and whole grains provide the rest of the benefit. Fiber preserves the bulk or size of the bowel movement to maintain
proper muscle effectiveness as things move through the system. It also acts like a mechanical “scrubber”
to keep the walls of the colon healthy.
We recommend a colon cleanse every 6 to 12 months to keep the cell membranes of the inside
of the colon functioning properly. The herbal cleanse should contain something to remove parasites
and a cellular detox. We like the TIAO-HE cleanse by Nature’s Sunshine. Yeasts are a healthy symbiotic
organism (they clean up sugars that were not absorbed by the small bowel) in the digestive tract. But
it is only healthy, if yeast stays in balance with the other healthy flora (bacteria) like acidophilus. Out of
control yeasts can give off toxic by-products that cause many systemic problems like chronic fatigue.
They can also add to the allergy load if one is allergic to molds and fungus. Yeasts are controlled by
seeding the bowel with probiotics or good bugs from time to time, especially after antibiotics, steroids,
stress, surgery, and Halloween (high sugar diets). Yogurt and supplement probiotics are very important.
Do these simple things and keep a healthy colon your whole life.

Miss Daisy came to the shel-
ter on February 8th as a stray.
She is a English Setter with
a beautiful white and liver
spotted coat. Miss Daisy is
about 4 years old and weighs
35 pounds. Somebody must
be missing this great girl and
I hope we can find that some-
body! Her adoption date will
be February 15th if she is not
claimed. That will give you
time to come to the shelter
and meet her and get to know
her. ID# 12/02/09

Happy 102nd Anniversary
to the Boy Scouts!!
Support Your local
Boy Scouting Programs
Mission
The mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices
over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Scout Law.
Scout Oath
On my honor I will do my best, To do my duty to God and my country
and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times;
To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
Scout Law
A Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind,
obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent.
The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s
largest and most prominent values-based youth
development organizations. The BSA provides
a program for young people that builds
character, trains them in the responsibilities
of participating citizenship, and develops
personal fitness.
For nearly a century, the BSA has helped
build the future leaders of this country by
combining educational activities and lifelong
values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America
believes — and, through nearly a century
of experience, knows — that helping youth
is a key to building a more conscientious,
responsible, and productive society.
