One part of health we've been discussing is physical health, and since I've been dealing with a cold for the past week, I chose to post this article. I wasn't too surprised by the fact that the common cold is the leading cause of school absences, but I was shocked at the lack of remedies. There are over-the-counter cold medicines you can take, and you can eat chicken soup if it makes you feel better, but you really have to let the sickness run its course. At this point in time, I would think scientists would have developed a cure for something so common by now. Since there is no true cure, what do you think we should do to prevent the spreading of colds? How do you think this will affect our futures, as individuals and as a community?
