ABSTRACT
Provides facts and fictions about colds. Colds are the most common illnesses we get. Schoolchildren often catch colds from one another -- usually about five to eight colds a year. Here are some mistakes, and some facts, about colds. FICTION: In low temperatures, you can catch a cold by going outside without a coat. FACT: It's smart to dress warmly when it's cold out. But colds are caused by viruses, and not cold weather. Washing your hands is a good way to avoid catching many viruses.
