Spring Colds

Air Date: 05/09/13 New research confirms what many of us have known for a long time. . . When you have a cold, your brain is off. The cognitive impairment that comes with a cold is similar to alcohol impairment. Your responses mentally and physically will be slowed down. Having a cold can be a big deal. Better not to get a cold. When you're stressed all the time, the body is more vulnerable to infections. This week Dr. Jankovich discusses the effect stress has on your vulnerability to a cold and the impairments associated with a cold. Research also tells us that having children makes us less likely to get a cold. Furthermore, a healthy lifestyle will work wonders for your health. And don't go to work and share the virus with everyone else. Your best defense is a healthy lifestyle and positive attitude.
