The Cold, Hard Facts of the Common Cold

It is the time of sniffles! Cold and flu season is upon us. By some accounts as early as August, and others think there really is no such thing since we can catch a virus anytime of the year. Thought it would be good to review some of the cold, hard facts of the common cold.

T/F: You can catch a cold by walking outside in cold weather with wet hair.

Wait 'til I tell my dad this one - wet hair does NOT cause colds. A whole childhood of nagging gone to waste.

I always, ALWAYS get a spring cold. Those are the worst since everyone is feeling great that it's nicer out, and here I am sick as all get out. I feel a little tickle coming on now, but I hope it peeters out before becoming a full blown thing.
