Old people do have a sense of humour and the good news is that ageing does not affect our emotional responses to humour and we will still enjoy a good laugh when we get the joke. There are many styles/types of humour and everyone has their favourite be that Irony, Slapstick, Black humour - dealing with the unpleasant or dark side of life, Satire or Farce. Some types of humour make fun of particular groups, e.g. politicians, women and different nationalities, whilst others make fun of taboo subjects such as death, sex, bodily functions, religion and beliefs. But whatever the sense of humour, thank goodness old people don't lose it as they grow older.

People age 65 and older consume more prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medicines than any other age group. Old people tend to have more long-term, chronic illnesses--such as arthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease--than do younger people. Because they may have a number of diseases or disabilities at the same time, it is common for old people to take many different drugs.

When prescribed and taken appropriately, drugs have many benefits: They treat diseases and infections, help manage symptoms of chronic conditions, and can contribute to an improved quality of life. But medicines can also cause problems, and the medical and physical needs of old people can sometimes make being aware of potential problems especially important. Of all the problems old people face in taking medication, drug interactions are possibly the most dangerous. When two or more drugs are mixed in the body, they may interact with each other and produce uncomfortable or even dangerous side effects.

This is especially a problem for old people because they are much more likely to take more than one drug. The average old person is taking more than four prescription medications at once plus two over-the-counter medications.



Interesting note...


According to ABCNews: July 15, 2004 - Anthropologists Rachel Caspari and Sang-Hee Lee were astounded when they saw the numbers. After spending years studying fossilised teeth in museums around the world they were finally able to document one of the most dramatic turning points in the history of human evolution. About 32,000 years ago, the researchers found, human longevity took a giant leap upward. In fact, the number of old people surviving more than quadrupled during what may have been a relatively brief period of time.
Why that happened is still a bit of a mystery, although the researchers have their hunches. But the consequences are clear. Population size grew dramatically, and with more and more old people around, with a bit of wisdom and experience, new ideas began to emerge.

Population reached a "critical mass," as Caspari puts it, and from all those old people sitting around the campfire sharing ideas, modern humans began to emerge. It was not just evolution. It was revolution. This old planet would never be the same again.
