How agriculture ties to senior citizens health

October 1, 2013

A responsibility of the South Carolina lieutenant governor is the health and well being of the state’s oldest citizens. From the lectern during last night’s Third Annual “Steak in Oconee”, Glenn McConnell drew a line that connects agriculture with the lives of senior citizens. “Though eating well is important to all of us no matter what our age, it is particularly difficult for seniors who make up the fast-growing segment of our population to get the nutrients they need to get a balanced diet. Without a balanced diet, a senior’s health will rapidly decline,” he said.
