Now that autumn has arrived, the cold and flu season is with us. Do you know exactly why cooler air causes colds? What can you do to stay well?

#1 COOLER WEATHER DRIVES PEOPLE INDOORS

More time indoors with others folks means more crowding and more contact with sick people. Beware of people harboring a cold or flu virus who don't even know they are contagious!  Make sure to keep your distance from coughs, sneezes and sniffles -- at least six feet.

#2 COOLER AIR HELPS VIRUSES MULTIPLY

Humidity levels drop when the weather cools. Cooler air is nothing but trouble when it comes to avoiding a cold or the flu.  Research shows that cold viruses multiply up to 100X faster in an air temperature below 98.6 degrees, the average temperature of the human body.

#3 VIRUSES LOVE THE COOLER AIR                                                                                                                                          

The most common cold viruses reproduce up to a 100X faster in air colder than 98.6 degrees, the average temperature of the human body. In cooler weather, the air in your nasal passages easily drops below 98.6 degrees. 

Cooler autumn air is a free ticket for viruses to reproduce like crazy -- right in your nasal passages!  Cool air also toughens the protective coat around flu viruses - making them easier to transmit from person to person, by sneezing, coughing or direct human contact.

#4 COOLER AUTUMN AIR DRIES YOUR NATURAL PROTECTIONS

Dry air from the lowered humidity of autumn air makes it harder for you to fight off cold and flu viruses.  The protective mucus membranes lining the nasal passages, mouth and respiratory tract dry up and lose their ability to block viruses. The fine hairs lining these same tissues also lose their ability to trap and neutralize viruses.

#5 WASH YOUR HANDS, WASH YOUR HANDS

Hand washing with soap and water is a key protection against spreading cold and flu viruses. But most people do not spend the time to wash their hands properly.

Take a FULL 30 SECONDS. Now count out loud one-one-thousand, two-one-thousand and so on to thirty. See? That’s how long it takes to do it right!

#6  AVOID SICK CONTACTS

Just remember whenever you’re in a group -- at work, getting together at a party, or attending a meeting or performance, or any other occasion that brings on close proximity to others, you risk getting sick. A cough or a sneeze propels aerosolized droplets loaded with viruses up to 6 feet or more. Even more important, shaking hands is a sure way to take on someone else's disease causing viruses!  

The best plan? Listen and watch for who’s coughing, sneezing or sniffling. And DO NOT SHAKE HANDS WITH ANYBODY. Just politely explain that you want to avoid spreading germs. Folks will thank you!
