This is the Redsson You Sniffe Now Colds Reach Their Peak at This Time of Year When Temperature Is Down By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. JANUARY 20th is the dntc of the Izrgcst number of colds. It is also tho date of the lowest temperature in the United States. So there is a reason for calling colds, "told«". Tho incidence of colds i» lowest from June 20 to July 28. It begins to rise sharply about tho 10th of September. There is another sharp riso in the last week in November, nnd this rise reaches its peak January 20th. Then there is a gradual and steady fall. March 17th shows about as many colds as November 26th. A drop of 10 degrees increases tho incidence of colda nearly one per cent. These figures were compiled year after year by the Metropolitan Life Insurance company, using its employees and their absent days on account of colds as a basis. Age IB Factor There is one other important factor in catching cold--age. Tho largest number of colds occurs in those under four years of age--2400 in a group studied. The falls stead Dr. Clcndening will answer question. 1 ! of general interest only, and then only through his column. ily until it reaches 1000'at the ages of 15 to 24. Then, for some reason, it rises again to 1500 at 35 and then fulls steadily, so that people at the age of 55 arc practically free from colds. Both these sots of figures have some significance. Cold weather am especially cold damp weather conditions unquestionably play some pan in the tendency to catch cold. Just what the mechanism Is cannot be agreed on by all students of the question. Perhaps the best explanation in that based on the experiment of Drs. Taylor and Dyrenforth, o: Jacksonville, Florida, as detailed in this column a few weeks ago. Their experiment! showed tha old water reduces bodily tcmpcra- ures more rapidly than cold air, hus lowering resistance. Here th» 'actor of getting wet is explained. Loss of body heat produce:! dett- jtc changes in the membrane of the nose. There is blanching and reduc- ion of blood supply. The tempcra- ure of the inside of the nose may gi lown as much as 10 degrees when tho body is exposed to cold. Ccr- oinly these changes lower the resistance of tho membrane to infec- ion, and mako entrance of tha virus if the common cold easy. The white cells of tho blood a« also reduced on exposure to cold. These are tho cells which fight in- 'ections of ail kinds. It is worth noting that cxcrcis* while exposed to cold does not pio- ducc these changes. So that if you lave to get cold and wet these days, «cp moving around. All these data support the -old- fashioned ideas about keeping bundled up this weather. It is an especially good plan to wear heavy socks or stockings. QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS T. M. P.: "(1) Is buttermilk fattening? (2) Does constipation cause pimples on the face?
