Dr. Bassett Contributes to Bustle – Does Sleeping With A Fan On Make You Sick? The Common Cold Is Caused By More Than Just Being Cold

We’ve officially reached the peak of summer, which means two things: one, we can begin our countdown to autumn (yes, already). Two, it is very, very hot outside almost everywhere. This summer has, so far, brought record high temperatures to most of the world, and that doesn’t seem to be stopping any time soon.

Just ask anyone who equates the advent of spring with a runny nose or the presence of a cute puppy with itchy eyes.
