New Study on Hypothermia

A new study shows severe weather can have a large impact on the health of older people.

Penn state researchers found young people are less susceptible to the cold than older adults.

Changes in body composition, like body fat, influence how the body deals with cold as people age.

The study announced some chilling findings.

Almost half of elderly people who come down with hypothermia will not survive it.
