Why do we catch a cold?
A cold is quite unforeseeable. We can take steps to try and avoid it but, generally, the symptoms start appearing one after another and then it's too late to do anything about it.
You could say that the cold takes advantage of a time when our defences are low to take over our body.
Yet there are also certain times of the year when it's easier to catch a cold:
- at the beginning of autumn
- in the spring
