Staying Healthy
Meet Dr. Eric Coris, a physician with USF Family Sports and Medicine, who shares a list of 47 health conditions that he says can be reduced, if not eliminated, by a modest amount of exercise. Viewers may be surprised to see even mental health conditions on the list. Carson Cooper demonstrates alternative forms of exercise that might tickle your funny bone as well as teach you how to strengthen your bones. Irene invites us into her kitchen for tips on better nutrition and how to make a heart-healthy meal. As the saying goes: It's not just what you do, it's also what you EAT. Then back to the studio for a demonstration from dietician Christine Miller on healthy choices for people who eat "on-the-go." And Larry Elliston introduces us to Dr. Bob, an 85-year-old retired physican who volunteers at a local health clinic and puts his own advice for exercise to practice.
