Closing In On A Cure For The Common Cold
Just about everyone at our radio station group has suffered through the cold season this year with one of those “it just won’t go away” kinda miserable colds! It's hard to believe that in 2017 we still don't have a cure for the common cold, but now science reports it might be getting close.
Some European researchers are said to have unlocked the 'enigma code' of the parechovirus, which is within the same family of viruses that cause colds. Hear that colds? We're coming for you!!!
