Copeland’s HEALTH TALK
% “Slouchy” Health
By ROYAL S. COPELAND, M. D.
(United States Senator and former Health Commissioner of
One o! the common pieces of advice I give you is this: Get plenty
Of rest, sleep, good food, fresh air, sunlight and exercise.
You can see the reason for each of these factors of good health. But
let me ask you a question: Why should you exercise?
That may seem like a senseless question, but
Is it? Really, why should a person, who desires
to be strong and healthy, take systematic physi
The other day I heard a masseuse say to her
patient, "Your arms are soft and flabby. You
should take exercise to develop them,’’
To one who has no work to do with the arms,
no lifting, no boxing to do, to have flabby arm
muscles is of small consequence. If all the other
muscles are hard and strong, the state of the arm
muscles would make little difference.
But here is the trouble: Unless you exercise
every day, keeping the blood in circulation, keep
ing the figure upright and trim, there will be
trouble after a while. It won't be long before
the abdominal walls relax, permitting the inter
nal organs to sag from their proper places.
Nature intended man to have his body muscles tight and firm, so
to keep the abdominal organs in place. It was intended to have the
back muscles in prime condition, In order that the backbone would be
held in the upright position.
It was planned to have the head held in such position as to take
pressure on the big blood vessels
and nerves of the neck. If you per
mit your figure to slouch, the chin
falls on the chest and there is sure
to be interference with the im
portant "triangles” of the neck.
The abdominal wall is thin in
spots. Unless the muscles overlying
these places are firm and strong,
is one of the recognized
conventions of this place
of business, but we can’t
help wondering what has
become of the little girl
who looked forward to the
day when she would wear
long skirts. A long wait!
No waiting by the road

there may be a break. Weakness
of the muscles, or undue use of the
muscles here, may cause a break
which results in what we call “her
nia," or in the common speech,
Unless there is regular exercise,
the muscles of the diaphragm, which
has an important part in breathing,
may grow weak Then there may
be shallow breathing and ill health
These abdominal muscles and the
powerful diaphragm have an im
portant part in helping to circulate
the blood and fluids of the body.
They help the intestines to perform
Unless there is such general exer
cise as to keep all the muscles in
first-class condition, those that sup
ply the walls of the intestines them
selves won't be able to do then
work. You can sec how necessary
this action is.
The bones of the pelvis are held
in place, as indeed are all the joints,
by certain ligaments. Unless the
muscles are strong, the ligaments
are not helped to do their work. In
the case of the pelvis this condition
may result in certain neuralgic
In the big blood vessels, especially
in the veins, are muscles which must
be in normal state, if they are to
help the circulation. The heart is
almost all muscular tissue.
Without systematic exercise the
muscles cannot be kept in condition
to do their work. Don't fail to do
your part to keep them strong. In
cidentally, you keep your figure and
