More Kids Means Greater Protection for Parents From Colds –Dave’s Diary

As your kids amble back to school in the days ahead and as you sink with relief back into that easy chair for a moments rest, consider this: When it comes to having children, the more you have, the healthier it is for the parents. Hard to believe that as you survey the mess they left behind but it’s true!On average, people with children are 52 percent less likely to contract colds than childless folks, say researchers from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Furthermore, parents with three or more children were 61 percent less likely to succumb to the sniffles, according to tests conducted on nearly 800 adults. But parents were only 48 percent less likely to catch a cold if they had only one or two children.

So kids, carry on the family name, grow and fulfill your dreams and while you’re at it, absorb those cold germs will ya!
