Does Cold Weather Make Us Sick? | SHE-ensya Why Series

Hello Science Fans!

Do you wear socks at night?

Do you avoid sleeping with wet hair?

Do you avoid cold drafts?

Do you do all these because you think the cold temperature can make us sick?

In this episode of the SHE-ensya Why Series, we look at the science behind the connection between cold weather or cold temperature and colds and flu. We discuss the primary causes for us getting sick, and the possible links these have with low temperatures. We also look at the other possibilities as to why we feel under the weather when the weather turns. And we look at the best ways to prevent us getting colds and flu!

So if you want to know if the coming cold weather is bad for you, please watch this video!

The SHE-ensya why series will dissect some of our most head scratching why questions, teasing out the scientific principles from historical records, conspiracy theories and mass media. 

Thank you so much for dropping by!
