THE PRESIDENT WON NEVADA IN 2000... BY JUST FOUR PERCENT. WITH THIS YEAR'S RACE CONSIDERED A DEAD HEAT -- JOHN KERRY WARMED UP TO A KEY GROUP OF VOTERS. ....SENIORS AT AN AARP CONVENTION IN VEGAS.

SOT - JOHN KERRY


PRESIDENT BUSH TURNED DOWN THE GROUPS INVITATION -- SENDING THE FIRST LADY IN HIS PLACE. THE ORGANIZATIONS 35 MILLION MEMBERS GAVE A BOOST TO LAST YEAR'S MEDICARE PRESCRIPTION DRUG LAW... BUT SOME SENIORS HAVE COMPLAINED THE LAW IS COSTLY AND CONFUSING.

(STANDUP BRIDGE) DREW LEVINSON/RENO, NV

BOTH MISTER BUSH AND MISTER KERRY ARE BETTING ON SWING STATES LIKE NEVADA. EVEN SMALL CITIES LIKE RENO ARE GETTING BOTH CAMPAIGN'S ATTENTION. THE PRESIDENT IS HERE -- AND SO IS JOHN KERRY'S WIFE.
In this town famous for its casinos .. it's the candidates who are gambling. The prize...five electoral votes.

(SOT: VIOLET GARDAY/VOTER)

I THINK MAYBE THEY BOTH SEE IT AS A SWING STATE THAT NUMBER OF ELECTORAL VOTES IF THEY CAN JUST GET THAT SO CLOSE IT MIGHT SWING THE ELECTION EITHER WAY. EVEN FIVE ELECTORAL VOTES? MAYBE MAYBE, IT IS GOING TO BE SO CLOSE.
From Nevada-the President heads to Oregon-a state leaning Kerrys waybut the Bush folks feel they have a shot. Kerry ends his day in Iowa. From now on its almost all battleground states in this battle for the Presidency. Drew Levinson, CBS News, Reno, Nevada.))

How much attention are you paying to the health of your bones? A new report by the U.S. Surgeon General predicts half of all Americans over 50 will be at risk for broken bones due to osteoporosis by the year 2020. Kelly Cobiella tells us how to take action now.

((Fast food... fad diets... and lack of exercise are at it again... Americans' bad habits are taking a toll on their BONES.

(SOT/PATRICIA FILOCOMO )

"EVERYONE I KNOW WHO'S OVER 55 OR 60 HAVE IT."
Including Patricia Filocomo. IT is OSTEOPOROSIS... bone loss. And it's costing americans 18 BILLION dollars a year.

(NAT POP ) "BOTH HIPS ARE REPLACED AND THAT'S THE ONLY THING SO FAR
(LAUGHS) HOPEFULLY THERE WON'T BE ANYTHING ELSE REPLACED!"



(TRACK)

Americans' bones are in a brittle state, according the surgeon general's first ever close look at bone health. 34 million Americans are at risk for osteoporosis. In another fifteen years, HALF of all Americans over fifty will HAVE it.

(SOT DR RICHARD CARMONA/US SURGEON GENERAL )


"IT USED TO BE THOUGHT OF AS A NATURAL PART OF AGING, NOW WE KNOW THAT'S NOT TRUE."

(TRACK)

Part of the problem... too many Americans are passing on dairy products... like milk and yogurt... and the vegetable aisle... in favor of the high-protein, low-carbohydrate craze. The result? Not enough Calcium and Vitamin D.
Another problem... perception.

(KELLY COBIELLA )

"Osteoporosis is NOT just a woman't disease. And many men don't realize it. The surgeon general's report found that for every man diagnosed with osteoporosis, there are another FOUR who don't know they have it."

(SOT MITCHELL DRIMMER )

"I NEVER EVEN CONSIDERED THAT. I'M WORRIED ABOUT A HEART ATTACK, HIGH CHOLESTEROL"
And it can strike both men and women EARLY. abby pealman was 47 when she was diagnosed.

(Abby Pealman )

"I AWAYS THOUGHT THAT I WAS TOO YOUNG - I LOOKED HEALTHY - I FELT GOOD AND I THOUGH THATIT COULD NEVER HAPPEN TO ME."
So how do you beat it? The Surgeon General says it's the same old formula... a healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise. Kelly Cobiella, CBS NEWS, New York.))
