Q. I was wondering if older people get bad breath more than younger folks.
I could find no direct correlation between aging and halitosis, which is the term for bad breath. However, I’m going to take a couple of educated stabs at the topic.
Many older people have dentures. If they don’t fit correctly or are not cleaned often, they can collect food and bacteria; both can lead to bad breath.

Q. I see lots of seniors in casinos. They come in by the bus load. I was wondering whether older people have more problems with gambling than younger people?
About 1 percent of all adults in the United States have a serious gambling addiction. The statistics on senior gambling indicate that compulsive gambling is a greater problem among older adults than adults in general.
Put out a BOLO (Be On the Lookout) alert for the spotted lanternfly.
No, this is not a TV police drama, but continued vigilance is needed for the invasive spotted lanternfly. It has not been found outside of the six Berks County townships under quarantine (District, Pike, Earl, Hereford, Washington and Rockland) yet. But if it exists outside of that area, everyone wants to know.
The spotted lanternfly (Lycorma delicatula), an invasive plant-hopper, was discovered in Berks County in 2014. This pest is native to China, India, Japan, Vietnam, and was introduced to Korea.
