A cauliflower a day keeps the cold away

New York: Once the weather turns colder, it feels like everyone is sneezing, sniffling, coughing, shivering, and potentially getting you sick.
While it might seem inevitable that you will fall prey to that most common of colds, there are some very natural, effective ways to keep illness at bay.
First, try discerning whether you have a simple (yet, still irritating) cold, or the much more serious influenza virus.
Colds rarely cause fevers, and the symptoms come on slowly, usually starting with a sore throat and leading to a stuffy, runny nose that lingers for a few days. The flu, by contrast, tends to hit people like a truck, with a fever, sore throat, headache, congestion and cough coming on quickly, and often all at once.
