I just saw another news report with a doctor stating the cold doesn't give you a cold . I know the cold is a type of virus ,but I firmly believe getting too cold has something to do with it. It either temporarily weakens your immune system opening a door for invasion , or causes an inflammatory response with the result being cold like symptoms . Hey doc , come to work with me on a ten degree day and stand outside for 10 hours with improper clothing and we'll see how you feel in the next couple days ! During part of this report the doc was saying a hat or gloves really didn't matter .... I'll stick to whats worked for me in the past thank you.
