Welcome to spring. It’s a time of new growth and possibilities. How could you resist heading out for a walk to enjoy the fresh air and new blossoms?

In time for the new season, we have the latest edition of Herald Health.

We have a story about the many benefits of staying active as you age. We have tips to keep you from getting salmonella. (Because that would really ruin your spring.)

We know you don’t like to floss (who does?) but we have tips to help keep your teeth healthy. Also, anyone who owns pets knows they can be a great health booster. If Fido gets a walk, so do you, after all. So we also have some tips to keep your pets healthy, too.

Read on. We hope you find some good advice to keep you happy and healthy this spring.
