Good­bye 80, Hello 81

Better Nutrition - - EDITOR’S NOTE - [email protected] aim­me­dia. com

De­cem­ber is the last month of our year- long 80th An­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tion. We’ve had a blast pag­ing through old is­sues of Bet­ter Nutri­tion and re­mem­ber­ing diff er­ent food fads over the decades— see the last one in our se­ries, “The South Beach Diet,” on p. 48.

One of the high­lights of this year hap­pened just a few weeks ago. I re­ceived an email and photo from Mar­cia Coty ( left), a long­time Bet­ter Nutri­tion reader. “I also turned 80 this year,” she said. “On the front of the mag­a­zine, it says 80th An­niver­sary Is­sue and EST. 1938. I was also ‘ es­tab­lished’ in 1938.” She went on to say, “I look young and healthy for my age. I’ve been tak­ing sup­ple­ments since I was 27 when it was ‘ crazy’ to do so. I at­tribute my health to my diet and great at­ti­tude. A good sense of hu­mor al­ways helps too.” I could feel her pos­i­tive spirit and sin­cer­ity com­ing through the email.

Coty says that she learned about nutri­tion from Adelle Davis’ ground­break­ing book Let’s Get Well, and she started tak­ing vi­ta­mins C and E, cal­cium, and mag­ne­sium to for­tify her sys­tem. As you can see from the photo, Coty’s reg­i­men has worked— she does in­deed look “young and healthy” at 80.

This story in­spired me, as it per­fectly cap­tures Bet­ter Nutri­tion’s 80th An­niver­sary year— a look back at health and nutri­tion philoso­phies that have en­dured over the years. And also a look at what’s on the hori­zon when it comes to sup­ple­ments and food.

I look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to re­port on the lat­est nat­u­ral health news and trends as we head into year 81 of Bet­ter Nutri­tion. Wish­ing each of you a happy, healthy hol­i­day sea­son!

Mar­cia Coty, shown here hold­ing a copy of our Oc­to­ber is­sue, is 80 years old— just like the mag­a­zine. Good nutri­tion and sup­ple­ments keep her en­er­gized and able to work three days per week, she says.
