“Staying active physically, intellectually, and socially is the key to good health. Sharing the wisdom your activity has earned you is the key to creating healthy communities.”

“Oral health is linked to health of the body. Having straight and healthy teeth that last a lifetime gives you self confidence, and makes your lifetime happier, and maybe longer.”

“For a whiter, brighter smile, eat strawberries, apples, cauliflower and broccoli. The fibers in these fruits and vegetables help scrub away stains from tea, coffee, and wine.”

“Your attitude is most important. If you feel depressed, worried, and troubled, it doesn’t matter how well you eat. It will be useless. You have to teach yourself to let go and believe that you can solve your problems in time. Smoking and drinking are bad for you. I don’t recommend spicy food; it won’t be good for your stomach. I never eat something too salty. More fish and veggies in your meals will make you healthy. Don’t overeat, but don’t ever starve yourself either. Stay away from cold drinks. It’s not good for your stomach. Always strive to be happy.”
