When it comes to the common cold we all suffer in differing ways, from the almost deadly man flu to light sniffles. Scientists have been working on a cure for mamy years, but is it possible?

They feel they may be coming close, but there are so many different varieties of cold, and it mutates so quickly, that no sooner is a cure identified than it changes once again.

It is believed that a cure could be found within the next ten years.

The most common variety is rhinovirus, which affects about 50% of the population. Children will get 5 – 10 colds per year and adults 3-5. There are over 160 different strains, so it is difficult to make a one size fits all cure. There have been cures found for some of these strains, but no sooner is it cured than it mutates into something else.

So until that day comes we may have to stick to more traditional methods of coping. Most of us will suffer colds, very few of us escape and it is estimated that there are around 2 million colds in London each year!

One of the easiest ways to catch a cold is by someone sneezing.That sneeze can travel upto 90 mph, and is breathed in by all around. So do remember to cover your nose when yousneeze!
