End the scourge of
the common cold
THE COLD WAR
The common cold is a scourge of modern society, made worse by air conditioning,
central heating, indoor living and damp weather. Since World War II extensive
research has identified at least 200 viruses responsible for the troubling symptoms
and work disruptions that prompt sufferers to declare they have "a dose of flu".
This book explains the causes of your discomfort and recommends a viable strategy
for cold prevention that can greatly reduce, if not end, your cold woes, Dr Newell,
researched the material in medical libraries and recent scientific journals to reveal
all that is now known about the causes and consequences of colds - and what can be
done to prevent them, whatever your lifestyle.
