World's Best Advice for your Common Cold!

Common Cold Immunity — caused by Old Age?

Common Cold Immunity

The science desk of the New York times answers a question as whether common cold immunity is due to old age, to why the inquirer’s mother age 92 seems to not catch the  colds of the daughter.

does old age give you immunity to colds?

does old age give you immunity to colds?

The doctor’s answer is not news, but common knowledge. Yes, you build up immunity to viruses, problem is that there are over 200 kinds of cold viruses, so there are a LOT of types of cold viruses going around to build immunity to.

The interesting part is how LONG we keep the common cold immunity. Dr. Jacobs says it can be “a few years to a lifetime”

But I am still unclear as to how the mutations of the cold virus affect the human sufferer’s immunity. Do they mutate into a new type that the human host has no immunity for? I have not seen that explained, but apparently from flu viruses, the bodies’s immunity is only to the exact type of virus that you have been infected with before.

That’ why they keep developing new flue vaccines each year because the flu viruses keep changing.

Dr. Jacobs also comments that the strength of our individual immune systems makes a big difference in how sick, and how long we suffer from a particular cold.

So answer, yes get colds, but get over them fast. Instead of popping herb pills next November, start working out this summer to keep yourself physically strong, which in turn strengthens your immune system to fight off the cold viruses much better this next season!

But with the cold, over 200 viruses can take a lot of years to cycle through so you likely will still get some colds, but if you fight it off quickly, then they are no big deal.

 

 Dr. Jonathan L. Jacobs, professor of clinical medicine at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, says “After most viral infections, people develop immunity to that specific virus, which can last from a few years to a lifetime.”

As immunity to different viruses builds up over time, it decreases the number of viral types that can make one sick, Dr. Jacobs said. But he added, “There are so many viruses that cause colds that complete immunity is very unlikely.”

As for the strength of symptoms of colds later in life, “our genes, and the strength of the immune mechanisms that produce many of the symptoms that we associate with the common cold, are also important factors determining how sick we get when exposed to a cold virus,” Dr. Jacobs said.

119. Quantum cure from extraterrestrials (part 2)

Not surprisingly, there is the usual misunderstanding of quantum entanglement as somehow affecting large, macro-level objects that woo-meisters of many stripes routinely demonstrate. None of this is particularly surprising. It is, however, rather amusing. Or it would be, if these charlatans didn’t apparently charge a fair amount of money for their PAK™s.

In fact, there’s seemingly nothing that QuantumMAN™ can’t do! Apparently, you can vaccinate yourself against malaria, influenza, and even the common cold! You can even protect your children from becoming addicted to meth by downloading some ZAG goodness into them, or, failing that, cure them (or yourself) of meth addiction.. If you have an infection, you can treat it with a quantum antibiotic, and if you’re in pain, you can take Zaxis™, which promises 24 hour pain control. Why only 24 hours if quantum medicine is so much more awesome than regular medicine? Who knows? Then, of course, there are a wide variety of ZAG products designed to help you lose weight because, well, you know, all that dieting and exercising is just so “chemical” compared to the quantum goodness at the heart of QuantumMAN™. You can even undergo a form of “quantum gastric bypass surgery” by reprogramming your brain, if you want. Even more amazingly, if you’re a female going through menopause, you can provide yourself with quantum hormone replacement therapy.

And, of course, if all else fails, there’s always Quantum Doctor (QDr™) or Quantum Chiropractor (QChiro™), while you can also detoxify. Quantumly, of course:
