BE HEART SMART DURING THE HUNT

Details

Deer hunting season has arrived and with that thousands of Hoosier hunters are headed to the woods to get the biggest buck they can find. But the American Heart Association encourages hunters to be heart smart. If last year's hunting season was the last time you've exercised, you may be putting yourself at risk of a heart attack.

EXERCISING ALFRESCO

In "The Producers", the riotous Mel Brooks movie classic from 1968, the wily and almost washed-up Broadway producer Max Bialystock (played famously by Zero Mostel) takes timid accountant Leo Bloom (Gene Wilder) to lunch. Bialystock steers Bloom to a hotdog vendor's run-down sidewalk stand just outside an entrance to New York City's Central Park. "We're dining alfresco" Bialystock pompously intones, sardonically tracing a big, broad semicircle with his hotdog to symbolically...

A HEALTHY DAY

Details JAMES NILL

Chiropractic care is the perfect complement to any regular exercise program. Vigorous exercise makes numerous demands on the body, and many people will quickly come up against various physical limitations they didn't know they had.

DENTISTS AID IN TREATING OTHER DISEASES

Details

Hundreds of years ago it was the barber who treated teeth. Then the body of knowledge grew to create the dental profession. Today, you usually think of the dentist as the doctor who handles teeth and gums. But so much recent evidence is pouring in - to not only increase our knowledge but to change the way we think in how diseases in the mouth affect the body - that the dentist may enter a new role in the future.

That role is to aid in reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, COPD...
