Have you ever wondered why cold and flu season spans the fall and winter? Why don’t germs succumb to the cold? Well, to some degree they do – hence the invention of refrigeration. But if you’ve ever witnessed a green-grey fuzz monster growing in your refrigerator, you know they don’t all succumb, not even to freezing temperatures. The prevalence of flus and colds in cold weather, though, is the function of reduced human resistance. We are not as tough as the microbes.
SafeHandles’ anti-microbial agents are however as tough as the microbes. Tougher. They kill them.
Without antimicrobial intervention, microbes will continue to infect humans whenever and however they are transmitted.
With spring comes increased sunshine (an antimicrobial itself, via ultraviolet radiation) and warmer temperatures. Those warmer temperatures don’t discourage microbial growth until they are well over 100 degree Fahrenheit, though. The transmission of cold and flu viruses may drop off partially because of reduced close quarters interactions. People are able to get out of the house and exercise in the fresh air.
Nothing mentioned thus far is an active deterrent to transmission of and infection by cold and flu viruses. So, yes, it is safe to assume that you can catch a cold or the flu in the spring. The one sure antidote to off-season transmission is the same as the antidote to in-season transmission: SafeHandles.
