That's why it's called a "cold"

I love this! They've finally come up with the science to back the obvious fact that being cold and damp really does tend to make you sick... with a cold. Previously, the story was that in the winter, people are confined indoors with each other, making each other sick and it had nothing whatsoever to do with the temperature. Well good point. Maybe that's why summer colds seems more prevalent here... where people are confined indoors together to keep cool. It is a virus and you do catch it from an infected person but it's hard to deny that getting sick immediately after cold/damp exposure is just a coincidence. If it weren't related to temperature, why would there be a "season" for it? hmmmm?
