I'm getting a cold for the second time in a month?

I'm getting a cold for the second time in a month? Topic: I'm getting a cold for the second time in a month?

Question: I eat well, exercise, take a multivitamin every day, drink lots of water and I noticed I seem to be getting sick again. I had a cold about 3-4 weeks ago that took me a week to get over. I seem to be getting it from my 2 year old daughter each time. I noticed each time she had a runny nose and didn't seem to be feeling well. I thought my immune system would be better at fighting this kind of thing off. If it's viral, does it even matter how strong my immune system is? I took Vitamin C tablet today and some echinacea. Why is this happening again so soon?

Welcome to your new life as a parent. Things are just going to be like this for about the next 10 years. Small children have absolutely no sense of hygiene. They will touch anything, eat anything, smear anything all over themselves, and then they bring it home to you. This has nothing to do with your immune system. You immune system only works on things that you have been immunized against, as in, things that it already knows about. Like viruses that you have already had. At this stage of your life, you will catch a new virus every few weeks. The only solution is to keep your daughter home, and don't let her have any contact with any other children. That's not a good solution, so best get comfortable with this, and stock up on the OTC cold medications.

Friend, Even in North India the consumption of Rice is very less .It is not popular,They consume wheat more , in the shape of Chapati , Poori, Bread etc. In Southern India the reverse is the case .Here in South india Rice is the main food item and wheat is the second alternative. North India is a comparatively cold territory compared to South India which is nearer to equator and more Hot . It was humorously remarked like this by some anonymous person.; '' Rice is taken more in South Indians because there is ` ICE` in RICE, and Wheat is consumed by north indians because there is `HEAT` in WHEAT '' The paddy grows more in tropical countries.That may be the reason.

diet is depending upon : supply, availability and cultivation, and cultivation depends again on geographical conditions. cold countries and cold area of any country has limited land available for cultivation of rice, as rice cultivation needs huge supply of rain water, and land. and Cold creates Snow covered lands so cultivation of rice is not possible. and this forces man to invent the food that can be easily made available. and once the habits are formed, it becomes social custom, culture and traditon. and these traditions raise the doubts and questions:Why rice diet is not popular in western countries mainly cold countries or cold places of any country.?

"I eat well, exercise, take a multivitamin every day, drink lots of water and I noticed I seem to be getting sick again." Wash your hands often!!! Do not rub your eyes!!! Hand washing is the best way to prevent catching a cold or the flu. Wash your daughter's hands too!!!

this happened to me alot, I'd always get colds/flu month after month, thinking it was a crappy immune system. but i finally went to the doctor, and it was actually strep. My throat didn't even hurt too bad. And for some reason the strep made me get colds. so go to the doctor, and drink some orange juice(:

Kirk Originally Answered: How do space-time warping and fabric of space-time explain gravity?
I see your confusion. Its a stretch from every day reality. My guess is that the problem is that you are thinking of space time itself has having a 3 dimensional movement. Of course if you exist within space you can move in three dimensions but outside of space (Which is impossible to phatom) movement up and down is not related to what you think as up and down. The analogy between a real fabric and spacetime (to my understanding) is that if a mass exist on the fabric (Within space time ) then the fabric will contort so that other masses on the fabric will moves towards the center. The analogy can only go so far because space time will not curve down like a piece of cloth....it will curve toward the massive object. Anything traveling in space will therefore be unable to travel in a straight line...a straight line will be redefined to mean a curved path to which an ending point exist in the center of the mass itself. Also keep in mind that in theory all objects with mass...even an atom will create curved space time (Much smaller curve of course). The fabric analogy shows this in action...the smaller the mass in the center of the fabric the smaller the slope of the sides. With the two bowls you are assuming that the source of the gravity is from underneath the bowl, but it is not...it is from the planet in the center. Therefore a better representation with two bowls would be if you have the bottom of both bowls touching and the planet holding them together. Commenting on your addition: Yeah, I see your point. I think he knew it to be a very loose analogy but it drove home the main point of a mass causing a warping of space. The proof that space warps is very mathematical and deal with general relativity. In order to understand (Not claiming that I understand it) is to learn general relativity, but before you learn GE youll have to learn another form of math called differential geometry. An experimental proof is seeing the affects of light bending around planets. Another would be seeing the blackness of a black hole
