Could the common colds days be numbered?
The majority of us learnt the mantra –
“Coughs and sneezes spread diseases – trap your germs in a handkerchief “
-at a very young age – and what we were taught as children still very much holds good today – but things could be about to change. Medical research may be about to discover a cure for the common cold which as the main cause of coughs and sneezes may just be one of the greatest medical breakthroughs ever.
Gone will be the days of carrying around a box of tissues taking endless hot drinks while sitting on the sofa or propped up in bed watching TV – gone will be the nights of being congested and unable to sleep – gone will be the headaches and the endless runny noses. For we the males of the species there could be one major drawback – gone will be the opportunity of having others at our beck and call to give us tea and sympathy because we have the worst “man flu” ever when all we have is a simple cold.
The development of a cure for the common cold has taken so long because there are around 200 viruses involved, though most colds are caused by three: the rhinovirus, coronavirus and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), which are responsible for 80 per cent of colds but now a team at Imperial College – London have come up with a nasal spray called SynGEM which may be about to change all of our lives forever. The article we have used as our information link from the Daily Mail Online also contains some very good advice about preventative measures that we generally ignore which could also reduce your chance of falling prey to a cold.
Here at Timber Composite Doors whilst we acknowledge that this is a major breakthrough – following in the footsteps of every TV news article one ever sees these days , finding the downside and gloom in every item (why ! there is still plenty of good news in the world) – but in keeping with the trend of seeing the worst in everything – we are concerned as to what this could do to our business.
