Can the Cold Give Us a Cold?

Myth or fact: Are we more susceptible to get sick when we experience a drastic temperature change outdoors, like we're experiencing this week?

Medical experts say sort of. They say it's not the change to cold weather that makes you sick, but the presence of viruses when it suddenly gets colder.

Doctors say viruses thrive in colder temperatures and say it's not just children and seniors that can be affected. Anyone susceptible to an occasional cold is a target.
