Cold 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.
