You've probably heard it a million times, “Put a coat on or you'll catch a cold.” But did you know that cold weather does not cause colds?
It's true! Studies from the Division of Infectious Disease at New York Hospital Queens show that colder weather has nothing to do with the common cold. So why do we always feel sick around winter? Well, that has more to do with what WE do when it gets cold out.
