Fighting Cold and Flu Season

Ad Feedback - We are right in the middle of cold and flu season and the average American gets two colds a year, while kids can get up to ten.

Here is some advice on avoiding them:

First, wash your hands more often. That is the best way to prevent the spread of cold viruses.

Then, get more sleep.

A recent study from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh found that people who slept less than seven hours a night were three times more likely to develop a cold as those who slept eight hours or more.

Research shows that good sleeping habits help support a healthy immune system and that keeps colds and other illnesses away.
