and flu season has struck Charlottesville with a vengeance. In
the vein of "know thine enemy," this Web site -- authored
by Drs. Jack M. Gwaltney Jr., Frederick G. Hayden and Birgit Winther
of the U.Va. Medical Center -- offers everything you ever wanted
to know about colds. Some pearls of wisdom: the idea that you
are more susceptible if you are chilled is a myth, and blowing
your nose may do more harm than good. An interesting site to check
out while you're at home recovering.
