Senator Michael Moore Encourages a Healthy 2015

Tuesday, December 30, 2014

 

On Monday, Senator Michael Moore of Worcester's 2nd District, released a statement urging individuals to get a healthy start to new year of 2015, and to consider quitting smoking and eating locally.

In the statement, Moore said, "As the New Year approaches, many of us will make a vow to improve our overall health and wellbeing in 2015. Whether it is taking the stairs instead of the elevator, starting or fulfilling a gym membership, or cutting back on certain foods, there is certainly no shortage of New Year’s “resolutions” to promote healthy choices and improved lifestyles."

"In the spirit of positive change, consider giving the gift of health to yourself and your family this holiday season by quitting smoking.  Quitting is the single most important step you can take to protect your health and the health of your loved ones. Not only does smoking cause immediate mal health effects, it also leads to future damage to your body, and increases your risk for many kinds of cancers, lung disease, heart-related issues, and even premature death," said Moore.

Moore said, "Also, don't forget to eat locally and seasonally throughout the year. While most of us think of the bountiful farmers markets that we see during the summer months, Massachusetts growers offer many locally grown options throughout the year. From freshly-picked corn in the summer, to roasted vegetables and sweet potatoes in the winter, our local farmers bring us interesting farm-to-table experiences. Support our Massachusetts growers and keep your kitchen local."

For help and support through quitting smoking, call the Massachusetts Smokers Helpline at 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669) and visit makesmokinghistory.org. For more information about eating locally in Massachusetts, visit mass.gov/massgrown.
