Study: Men Should Monitor Biological Clocks, Too

Updated:
A new study shows children born to older dads have a higher risk for certain psychiatric problems.

Researchers looked at two million children born in Sweden.  They found the ones born to dads ages 45 and older were more prone to problems like autism, ADHD, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.

In the U.S. and many other countries around the world, the average age when people first have children is increasing.
 
Researchers say this new study shows that men may need to acknowledge a biological clock the same way women have for decades.

The study was published in JAMA Psychiatry.

Clinic officials say they're treating 35 to 40 percent more teenage girls for lice at their two Chicago locations.

 They suggest checking children for lice weekly.
