I think benji is probably referring to all the perfectly healthy adults who require antibiotics and bed rest and cold and flu tablets as soon as they get the sniffles. I agree with you about colds being dangerous for some. Winter sucks when you have asthmatic kids!! People should definitely keep their germs to themselves and I think that does come down to everyone practicing good hygeine too because many people such as my kids suffer a runny nose all year round. They arent sick or infectious so I cant keep them home all year. Things like running a temp, lots of coughing etc and I do.

Has anyone ever taped garlic clove to the sole of their feet? Tell me substances don't absorb through the feet then when you wake up with that garlic smell seeping out of your pores Same way whatever chemicals you put on your skin can end up in your blood****** hence the popularity of mineral makeup!

Yes, to all of these!
That a cold is the same as flu.
That you shouldn't drink milk.
That you catch colds because of wet hair/ being cold.
That antibiotics are always needed.
That Vicks on the feet is different to Vicks anywhere else.
Correlation does not equal causation.
Yes, I'm talking about healthy adults. I have a DS who has had pneumonia although I don't see how spreading of colds is avoidable really. They're colds.
Mine is sweating it out. Dh is convinced when he gets sick like a temp the best is to go to bed with electric blanket and blankets and hot water bottles and no liquids so he can sweat out the germs
