Can you not get sick if everybody in your home is sick?

My parents both had cold symptoms this week

But I did not get sick

Cause I drank 3 teas that prevent sickness

And I take supplements

And I had about 8 times more vitamin C than everybody in my family

  • Colds are spread through saliva. When people with colds cough or sneeze, small amounts of germ-laden saliva settle on hard surfaces and you can pick these up on your hands. Washing your hands regularly, especially before you handle food or put your hands anywhere near your mouth or eyes, is the best prevention method.

    Teas contain antioxidants and bioflavinoids which are good for you in moderate doses and your body also needs vitamin C. If you take more than you need, you simply pee out the rest. You can have the most expensive pee in the street, but it won't make you any less likely to catch a cold.

    If you have a strong immune system, you might be able to fight off the virus before it takes hold.
