  Common Cold
Most colds are caused by rhinoviruses (the name comes from "rhin," the Greek word for nose) that are in invisible droplets in the air we breathe or on things we touch.
The first symptoms of a cold are often a tickle in the throat, a runny or stuffy nose, and sneezing.
Colds are most contagious during the first 2 to 4 days after symptoms appear, and may be contagious for up to 3 weeks.

The neglect of cold fusion is one of the biggest scandals in the history of science.

Yet, because of the competition with oil and hot fusion, cold fusioneers have been attacked for 17 years by the some in the DoE, the US Patent Office, and some hot fusion physicists to a degree that is unknown in other competing energy and science fields.

"Cold Mountain" tells the story of Inman (Law), a carpenter working in Cold Mountain, North Carolina in 1861 when the alluring, elegant, and well-educated Ada (Kidman) and her father, Reverend Monroe (Sutherland), move to the Blue Mountains from the city.
When boiled down to it, "Cold Mountain" is simply a beautiful testament of the human soul's fierce will to survive and, as corny as it sounds, the power of love.
The trailer for "Cold Mountain" led me to believe this was a romance, but it is really a story of the brutality of war.

 Eby's ColdCure Zinc Acetate Lozenges, the World's Only Common Cold Cure   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The strength of zinc lozenge in it's ability to shorten common colds, or terminate incipient colds is directly related to the ZIA of the lozenges.
Zinc lozenges having a ZIA value of 100 are strong enough to terminate incipient colds in less than a day or reduce the average duration of existing colds by a week.
Since zinc lozenges having positive ZIA values reduce the duration of common colds, and zinc lozenges with negative ZIA values worsen common colds, it is likely that positively charged zinc ions from mast cell granules (present in vast quantities in respiratory tract tissues) are part of nature's natural defense against common colds.
