Cold Facts

The People's Friend - - Health & Wellbeing -

Ex­er­cise might feel like the last thing you want to do if you’re bunged up with a cold, but a new study from Ball State Univer­sity in the USA has found no dif­fer­ence in symp­toms or re­cov­ery time be­tween cold suf­fer­ers who kept on ex­er­cis­ing and those who took it easy in­stead.

Al­though it’s not a good idea to ex­er­cise if you have flu, a fever or a chest in­fec­tion, you won’t make an or­di­nary cold any worse by stay­ing ac­tive. Also, the fit­ness group said they felt bet­ter after ex­er­cis­ing, too.
