    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- No matter what the question, no one can stump Dr. T. Glenn Pait with UAMS. He's cracking open up his medical mailbag to answer your questions.

    These are the questions he covered:

    -Is it true that any cold drink can help hydrate you on a hot day?

    -I sleep in air conditioning at night and it seems I always get a cold. Is it true air conditioning will cause a cold?

    -What do you think about a new gum that contains caffeine? My junior high students were talking about it and are apparently chewing it. Is it safe?

    -I'm a cyclist. A dear friend of mine, also a cyclist, said eating raisins are very good for long-distance events and riding. Is it true? Should I eat more raisins?

    -I'm a woman in her early 60's. What do you think about anti-aging face wipes? Should I give it a try or is it just another gimmick trying to get my money?

    -Whenever I'm in my girlfriend's apartment, I have difficulty breathing. My girlfriend said she only uses air fresheners with essential oils and the fragrances are organic. What do you think? Can they be causing my problem?
