(Newser) – As questions about the medical history of all four national candidates continue to circulate, Joe Biden released a cache of records today that indicate the 65-year-old VP hopeful is in good health, the AP reports. Like many men his age, Biden takes a cholesterol-lowering drug and has an enlarged prostate, but his records contain no information about recent brain scans. He underwent emergency surgery on a brain aneurysm in 1988.
