Dave's Corner 💭

We had a very nice Christmas in Montreal with family, but I acquired a cold that has made my nose run like a faucet. I don't really mind colds much—I don't know why people complain about them. A cold has never made me want to miss school or work. I don't usually get many colds, but I've had more the past few months than I usually do. I think a lot of one's likelihood to get a cold has to do with diet. Diets rich in immune supporting vitamins I think make one much less likely to get a cold. At least that's been my observation of myself and the people around me.

Medical research I've read has shown that in certain circumstances vitamin C and zinc can help reduce the likelihood to get a cold and/or shorten its duration. However, the research is inconclusive, and seems to only be applicable to certain subpopulations and formulations of the vitamins. I wouldn't read too much into it, but I think a diet rich in vitamin c and zinc is healthy for most people. However, I'm not a doctor, so these statements reflect my own opinions and not medical advice.

Random Burlingtonian Quote of the Day 📝

Undoubtedly it is our duty, and for our best good, that we occupy and improve the faculties, with which our creator has endowed us, but so far as prejudice, or prepossession of opinion prevails over our minds, in the same proportion, reason is excluded from our theory or practice. Therefore if we would acquire useful knowledge, we must first divest ourselves of those impediments and sincerely endeavor to search out the truth: and draw our conclusions from reason and just argument, which will never conform to our inclination, interest or fancy but we must conform to that if we would judge rightly.

—Ethan Allen
