It’s happened again. Modern medical science has confirmed one more of Grandma Putt’s firmly held convictions: that the road to good health starts with a sound night’s sleep. In fact, researchers at
Cornell University have found that getting too little sleep may actually shorten your life span by as much as 8 to 10 years. But on hot, humid summer nights, if you don’t have an air conditioner, drifting off to dreamland isn’t all that easy. What to do? Just sprinkle a little baby powder between the sheets to absorb moisture and help you feel cooler. Before you know it, you’ll be sleeping like, well, a baby.
