Dr. John Whyte, chief medical expert and vice president of medical education at the Discovery Channel, says “there is no need to worry if you have trouble remembering where your car keys are every once in a while, but if it’s a very common occurrence, it could indicate more serious problems."

Dr. Whyte answers the most common questions about the normal changes we can expect to experience as we grow older, in his appropriately titled book, Is This Normal.
