Few of us think about taking more exercise, cutting back on alcohol or eating a healthy diet until some health problem or other comes along and forces us to take stock. The problem is that many of today’s health problems – high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease and some cancers – are largely avoidable with a little effort. So what stops us from putting all the good lifestyle advice we hear into practice? Men tend to die an average of six years younger than women.

Most of us already know that we need to eat lots of fruit and vegetables, take regular exercise and watch our weight to be healthy, but sometimes the thought of all that effort can put us off.Luckily, just increasing the amount of fish you eat every week can make quite a difference to your health. While nothing will substitute for an overall healthy lifestyle, eating fish, especially oil-rich fish, twice a week is a simple and tasty step on the road to good health.Fish is rich in many vital nutrients including protein, B vitamins, selenium, iodine and zinc.

How we can have a conversation and learn from each other about what’s taking place during this whole pandemic?” Michlig said. “We’re not coming into this in any way thinking about what the outcome should be or what the deliverables should be, it’s really just learning from one another, having a good conversation and trying to determine the best path forward for the credit union system.”Launched in June, the task force brings together representatives from the three-tiered system of credit unions, Leagues and CUNA, along with system providers and affiliated organizations, to discuss strategies, resources and best practices for credit unions as state and local governments begin to lift stay home orders and ease safety restrictions on business operations established in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.During the interview, Michlig talks about how the task force represents a strategic restarting process, what the task force’s work will look like and more.
Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionGOP has become the party of inactionThe Daily Gazette Sept. 2 opinion piece “Taxing the Rich Won’t pay for Democratic Promises” by David Wilson (who worked for Newt Gingrich) focuses on what we can’t do.Like many Republicans, he argues against Democratic efforts to find solutions, offering no alternate plans. He cringes over the 10-year $30 trillion to 40 trillion projected cost of “Medicare For All.” That sounds staggering until you consider that under the current health system, 10-year costs will exceed $50 trillion, according to the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (see cms.gov).Wilson goes on to say how impossible it will be to afford plans to combat climate change, like Elizabeth Warren’s proposed $2 trillion “Green Apollo Program” that would focus on green research, manufacturing and exporting green technology.He totally neglects the cost of doing nothing. Most analysts predict climate change costs will be enormous as cities flood, fresh water becomes scarce and storms increase in intensity. We need more than a moonshot to deal with climate change; we need an effort equivalent to the buildup for World War II. But let’s not wait for a climate Pearl Harbor to act.The Republicans are the party of “no” and “can’t.” They want us to retreat into a shell. In the last 100 years, most of this country’s big domestic improvements, such as the WPA, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and the Affordable Care Act, have come from Democrats. Under Republican Dwight Eisenhower, rich people were taxed as much as 90 percent, which funded the Interstate Highway System.Peter WatrousDuanesburgThanks to bank for electronics recyclingIn this day when it seems everyone wants to complain about everything, I would like to say thanks. Thank you to the Ballston Spa National Bank for the electronic recycling day it had on Sept. 7 at its headquarters in Ballston Spa. This a great service to the community and gave us a place to get rid of the old electronic products we had in our homes. The bank staff was well organized and prompt, and everyone had a smile on their face! Great job BSNB. We thank you.Frank BlairBallston SpaClarify position on health care plansThe Health Equity and Access Reform Today Act of 1993 was introduced and co-sponsored by Republicans. It’s considered similar to the Affordable Care Act (ACA).Massachusetts health care reform (also called Romneycare) is also considered similar to the ACA. Based on my experience, Republicans who dislike the ACA and Democrats who promote the ACA don’t acknowledge Romneycare very much. Regardless, the programs are considered similar.Regarding the many Republican attempts to get rid of the ACA (which has been compared to their own), are they merely attempting to appease their base and nothing more, or are they authentic attempting to get rid of the ACA? I don’t think voters on either side want to know the answer to that.Colin YunickCharltonMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?Gov.
