Why do more people get sick when it gets cold?

    Good question, christine.  Some people think that it is the cold that makes you sick, but the weather only has an inderect relationship with catching a cold.  When it is cold, people stay inside more, which means they have more contact with other people, which means more of a chance of spreading germs and getting sick.

    Hope this helps!

    Cold weather doesn’t mean catching a cold. Cold weather only compromises the immune system thus making catching a cold more likely. Scientists found that cold noses reduce our ability to fight viruses. The reason why we catch a cold during colder seasons has more to to do with the reproduction of viruses.
