Healthy Geezer: The sweet smell of successful aging

Tuesday, November 5, 2013 by FRED CICETTI Special to The Press in Focus

Q. My six-year-old grandson insists that I smell like an old person. Do you have any idea what he's talking about?

There was a study that suggests people can tell if you are old by how you smell. The study was done at the Monell Chemical Senses Center, Philadelphia.

Researchers asked volunteers between the ages of 20 and 95 to sleep in T-shirts with nursing pads sewn into the armpits.

After five nights, the researchers put the pads in jars. Each jar contained cut-up...

Healthy Geezer: Somnambulism OK if infrequent event

Tuesday, October 29, 2013 by FRED CICETTI Special to The Press in Focus

Q. Is it true that sleepwalkers can't be hurt when they walk in their sleep?

It is a common misconception that sleepwalkers, aka somnambulists, are often injured when they trip and fall in their sleep.

Another myth is that you should not wake up a sleepwalker. It is not dangerous to awaken a sleepwalker. In fact, it can be quite dangerous not to awake a sleepwalker. The only problem with rousing a sleepwalker is that the person will be disoriented for a while.
