The San Francisco Chronicle
Frederick C. Swartz, M. D. as reported by Dick Hallgren in The San Francisco Chronicle San Francisco, California
A Michigan doctor debunked the "so-called infirmities of age" in a hard-hitting speech before more than 4000 family doctors here. ... The forgetful mind, the doddering gait, the shaky hand —these, said Dr. Frederick C. Swartz of Lansing, are caused by the lack of physical and mental exertion and not the passage of time. "There are no diseases caused by the mere passage of time," he told the family doctors, here for the American Academy of General Practice convention at Civic Auditorium.
Our present concept of the "aging process" must be shattered and our "already brainwashed oldsters" made to see the nature of their ailments, he declared. ... "The fatal concept that 'debilities' come with age and at 65 one is 'over the hill' condemns the oldster to a period of ever-narrowing horizons," he asserted, "until the final sparks of living are the psychoneurotic concerns with the workings of his own body."
