Keep you and your family healthy this season with these easy tips to avoid illness
Eat foods rich in Vitamin C
The vitamin can shorten the duration of a cold slightly―by 8 percent in adults and 13.6 percent in children―but a recent study shows that it reduces your risk of catching a cold in the first place only if you're a serious athlete. To get the benefits, researchers say, you need to take it daily. If you're game, eat at least one C-rich food every meal to replenish your stores of the vitamin, which exits the body in urine.
