If you or someone you care about is among them-- or hopes to be someday--it may be wise to heed these five hints on keeping healthy, active and pain-free as you age. They come from Dr. Bob Arnot, an award-win- ning author of 12 books on nutrition and health, and former chief medical corre- spondent for CBS and NBC. Healthy Aging Ideas 1. Give good health a shot. Get your flu, shingles and pneumonia immuniza- tions. Follow your doctor's advice about regular cancer screening tests, stress tests and bone density measurements. Head off some of the problems of aging before they occur. 2.Stay mentally alert. Read the newspaper every day. Do the crossword puzzle. Play bridge or chess. Take--or teach--a class. Keeping your mind en- gaged could ward off the brain changes that lead to Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. Stay socially active, too. If friends and family are far away, see if you can communicate electronically with computer programs such as Skype. 3. Don't smoke. You're never too old to quit. 4.Eat righL In addition to lots of fruits, vegetables and a few lean meats, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 1 4th 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Name brands You Know and PRices You Won't Believe!

Also, add flavor to foods with spices and herbs instead of salt and look for low-so- dium packaged foods. Drink three cups of fat-free or low-fat milk throughout the day or the equivalent in yogurt, cheese or other dairy products. 5. Be physically active. Regular ac- tivity can help delay, prevent or manage many costly chronic diseases faced by adults 50 years old or older. Try for at least 2˝ hours of moderate-intensity physical activity a week. Do it in in- crements of 10 minutes or more. Bike, dance, walk for cardiovascular health.
