End the scourge of
the common cold


Malcolm Newell


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.



Causes of the Common Cold
At least 200 viruses  *  Why you can't resist them all  *  Situations that make you vulnerable
Health versus sickness  *  Catching cold  *  Symptoms and signs 
   How a cold differs from the flu or a bacterial infection  *  The course of a cold
What a cold tells you  *  When a cold is something else

Research since World War II
From cold feet to megadoses of vitamins  *  The cold "farm" in Britian  *  Getting paid to have a cold
Bolting the stable door ... treating symptoms not causes  *  Viruses, not bacteria
Byways and quirks of common cold viruses  *  Blind alleys

Tablets and other Treatments

"Go to bed with a hot lemon and honey ... "  *  The asprin/paracetamol approach
The ubiquittous antibiotic  *  Sore throats and swollen glands  *  Preventing a more serious outcome
Age and resistance  *  Flu injections and misconceptions  *  A mine of misinformation

How the Immune System Works
The basis and process of immunity  *  Vitamins are only bit players in the orchestra
Sunshine and susceptibility  *  Structures of general health  *  Getting "run down"
Reversing the downward slide to disease  *  Why viruses evolve and mutate
Individual quirks and complications  *  How immunity is built

More Pieces of the Puzzle
Who gets sick and why?  *  The synthesis of mind and body  *  Red herrings: How vitamins can help
An orange a day keeps ...  *  Why the story is much more complex
"Helth" foods and foolish fads  *  Genetic antecedents

How Diet, Sunshine and Activity Interact
The chemistry of sunlight  *  Vitamin D synthesis  *  Promoting the wonders of sunlight
Tanning and the fears of cancer  *  The efects of sun deprivation *  The role of light for a living photo-cell
How the pineal gland plays a part  *  Summer and winter ills  *  Where exercise plays a vital role
The energy/output balance  *  Fresh and wholesome - the crime of the cook

Effects of an Industrial Lifestyle
Why do some succumb - but not others?  *  Workload and stress  *  That airconditioning system ...
The mismanagement of heating  *  Urban life and resistance  *  Lifestyle and other aggravations
pollutants and air quality  *  The factors we need not consider

Never have Another Cold
The culture of the common cold  *  Building effective resistance  *  Physical fitness - for life 
Prevention is better than cure  *  Assessing the immune system's health  *  Picking the first indicators
What to do if you still start to succumb *  Suppressing the symptoms for 48 hours
   The minefield of the mind 

Conclusion  *  Index


149mmx210mm  142pgs.   Stirling Press, Australia
