Re: Cold Prevention

With the cold season quickly approaching, there is a simple health tip I’d like to share with the readers. Load up on lemons, blueberries or cranberries. They have been quite effective in saving me from the curse of the runny nose.

I’m not a health professional, but I noticed that since I started regularly taking these fruits a few years ago, I haven’t had a cold.

The oldest generations (70+) in my family grow blue/cranberries in Nova Scotia, and they have never had cold or flu-related illnesses. Fit as fiddles they are!

Thanks Nimra. As someone who has not had a full-blown cold in 8 years, I agree! Good health to all AU students over the holiday season.
