comment Why does the cold make us sick?
This is a comment based on anecdote, so I don't feel comfortable listing it as an answer. But one explanation I have heard is that much of the sickness we see during the colder season(s) is not the result of our bodies actually being in the cold, but the result of spending more time indoors sharing each other's germs rather than being outdoors in the fresh air.
