Does Being Cold Make You Sick?

(YouTube link)

"You'll catch your death of cold!" Grandma says when you show up with just a sweater on in the winter. So you once again explain to her that you aren't allowed to wear a coat in class because of security rules and there's no place to put one where it won't be stolen. But does cold weather make you sick? No. And yes. AsapSCIENCE explains the nuts and bolts of winter weather and colds and flu.

Put another way, cold weather makes me sick. Sick at heart when I have to venture out to start the car early. And sick to my stomach when I think of the heating bills. And I think it might affect my arthritis a bit, too. -via Geeks Are Sexy

When my kids were in elementary school, they would bring home unfamiliar germs as soon as school started every year. They were fine, because they have young healthy immune systems. But their father and I, being old and not exposed to that many people every day, came down hard. Over the years, we got better at handling the yearly onslaught.

I thought it had more to do with being cooped up indoors with a whole bunch of folks, some of whom are already ill. When I taught school, I'd typically catch a cold in September or October.

Woah, the video froze for buffering at 0:41...the couch looked VERY judgmental : /
When it froze again at 1:29 (my internet really sucks) I was treated to a loooong strip of bacon ^_^
