In the past week, there has been a spike in influenza type illnesses. It got me to thinking; does this have anything to do with the weather? I searched and came across an interesting article relating the higher rates of influenza with temperatures.

Cooler temperatures harden the protective shell, making it more resistant to outside elements. Check out the full article with all the details here.
