Researchers have found that people who get less than seven hours of sleep a night are three times more likely to catch a cold than well-rested people, Reuters is reporting.

Well that just tears it!  I’m going to get more sleep right now.  I don’t care that I’m driving.


Let me get this straight: If you sleep more, you’re less likely to catch a cold.  But if you do catch a cold, your doctor will tell you to get bed rest.  So it all just balances out in the end, right?

I wonder if this study was sponsored by the makers of NyQuil — because that stuff will make you catch your zzzs.
