"Hackin' and Coughin'"
Josh Eachus posted a report recently on evidence related to a cold and cold weather. Researchers believe a modest chill is good for your vascular system. Mom relied on mustard plasters, Vick's Vapo Rub and salt-water gargling to relieve symptoms. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases verify Josh's report that drastic changes in temperature are not responsible for these types of illnesses. Germs are primarily transmitted through direct contact and the Institute determined that people tend to be sick, at this time of year, due to time spent indoors. In an environment of dry, indoor air, viruses thrive and are enhanced by way of direct contact. Colds and flu are prevented by hand washing and a little "chill-out" can assist.
