Hypothermia alone cannot cause a cold, but it can weaken the body’s defenses and insidious bacteria will start to multiply. Remember what mom said and put on your hat.
Wash your hands
95% of people do not know how to wash their hands. And miles would be – several times less likely to suffer not only from SARS, but also viral pneumonia, hepatitis, influenza, and gastric infections. We tell about everything in detail in the article “How to wash your hands? You’ve been doing it wrong all your life. ”
Take a walk
The office, public transport, shopping malls are all hotbeds of infections. Try to go outside more often, and be sure to ventilate your home. This hardens the body and reduces the likelihood of touching an object infested with pathogens (such as a doorknob or handrail).
Scientists from Cambridge have found that cruciferous vegetables increase the activity of leukocytes – and they protect us from infections. Insist on all kinds of cabbage, watercress, turnips and radishes.
Peppers and garlic can also be helpful: they irritate the upper respiratory tract, helping the nasal sinuses to clear mucus. And with it – and from germs.
Don’t be afraid to kiss
In this way, people are infected quite rarely: in human saliva, the number of “cold” viruses is much lower than in the sinuses.
According to Korean scientists, smoking increases the chance of catching the flu by 5 times. Not to mention all the other damage it does to your health.
Do not touch the face
Do not scratch your nose, do not rub your eyes and generally try to keep your hands away from your head in public. At least until you wash your hands or at least wipe them with a disinfectant solution. Otherwise, you organize a direct delivery of viruses directly to your mucous membranes.
This is the only way to protect yourself from the flu virus with a probability of up to 90%. And vaccinate your children: in a healthy adult with strong immunity, the disease usually passes without sequelae, but the child’s body can not cope with it so easily.
