THE COXiON GOLD
The common cold is the most
frequent of all acute diseases. It is
important for us to know that colds are
contagious; thiit is, they can be
transferred from one 'person to another.
Colds are caused by germs. No one
germ is responsible for producing them,
however, th;;y are caused by any one
of a great number of ^erras, or by
several aiffereiit kinds or combinations.
Colds of themselves are not fatal,
but they pave the way by lowering body
resistance for th. entry such as,
those causing influenza, pneumonia, and
tuberculosis. It is estimated that
the average person has from three tef
five colds a yea.r.
Colds nay be classified under two
1. Chest colds, those in
which the bronchi and lungs are
2. The head colds, in which
the raucous memvrane of the mouth
ncao.and throat are affected. Both
types need careful treatment.
Some ways by which colds may be
prevented are the following:
1. Get plenty of sleep. 2. Sleep in
a well ventilated room, 3. Eat well
balanced meals. 4. Wear sufficient
clothing, 5. Get plenty of fresh air,
sunshine, anu exercise, 6. If you
get wet or damp, change your clothing
as soon as possible, 7, Don't put
on half dry clothing.
The best defense against colds
is the building up and maintaining
of body resistance. Cold germs do not
orainarily thrive in healthy bodies.
Most people knovj how to keep
physically fit, but do not practice it.
Carelessness causes us so much
suffering, time, ana money. If we use
our handkerchief over our mouth when
we cough or sneeze, we will do our part
in protecting others against the disease.
