7 Myths About Old Man Winter
The myth: Going out in chilly weather causes you to catch cold. The reality: A cold is caused by a viral infection of the respiratory system. Viruses don't magically appear in your body because you went out into the weather. Most of the time, we contract viruses when we come into close contact with other people who are already infected, which means you're putting yourself at greater risk for disease by staying inside with your friends and family than you would going out alone.
