Whether it is possible to catch a cold from a draft, experts have told
The organism is arranged so that it is always protected when it is uncomfortable. For example, if you are cold, then goose bumps appear – the cutaneous hairs rise, creating an air cushion, the subcutaneous muscles contract, preventing the body from giving off heat.
