Nourish your body for good health

January 15, 2014
Minot Daily News

As you get older, you may not be as active as you used to be. Maybe you don't feel like cooking, so you rely on fast food or convenient heat-and-serve food. Perhaps you've developed health issues such as high blood pressure or diabetes, or have trouble seeing. You're not alone. Half of North Dakotans 65 and older have arthritis, nearly one in three has impaired vision, and one in five has diabetes. Nearly 90 percent aren't involved in physical activity, 42 percent are overweight, 24 percent are obese and 57 percent have high blood pressure. If you'd like to make some positive changes in your diet or lifestyle, the North Dakota State University Extension Service can help. NDSU Extension developed a program called "Nourishing Boomers and Beyond" to provide North Dakotans age 50 and older with information and strategies to reduce their risk of developing chronic disease.
