I was busy last month compiling information about the common cold. Nearly half of all colds are caused by rhinoviruses, a type of picornavirus. Here's where you can find more information:

The Spread of the Common Cold - How rhinovirus spreads and infects us

Signs and Symptoms of Rhinovirus Infection - What we know as the common cold

Zinc and the Common Cold - Evidence for preventing rhinovirus infection

Common Picornavirus Infections - other illnesses caused by viruses similar to rhinovirus
