This week’s program discussed the link between the ability to detect odours and general health. It highlighted the scientific work published in recent years that indicates that the inability to detect and correctly identify odours among the elderly (and perhaps the not-so-elderly) is linked to a three-fold increased risk of death over a five year span. It is possible that the observation is linked to the ability of the stem cells of an individual to replenish exhausted odour-detecting cells. The folk songs played in this week’s program were sung by Bangladeshi singer Chandana Majumder. This week’s program was produced and presented by Sadequr Rahman.
