Why do so many people believe you can sick sick from being cold?

According to prime time getting sick from the cold if your not wearing a jacket is the number 1 myth today. You have to get sick from a virus, which has nothing to do with the cold air. Scientific studies have even been done to prove that you can get sick from cold air. Most people that I know believe in this myth.

    Old wives tales die hard sometimes. I think people

    believe that not wearing a coat while outside in

    the cold will lower your resistence allowing you

    to become more susceptable to the cold virus. Personally, I think that is a bunch of bunk. Not

    everyone has a good immune system.
