How to avoid getting a cold or the flu

It's that time again -- cold and flu season. And if a family member or close co-worker comes down with a cold, what's the best way to avoid catching whatever they've got? This week on WRVO's health and wellness show “Take Care,” hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Dr. Philip Tierno, a professor of pathology and microbiology at NYU and a world-renowned expert on germs. Dr. Tierno discusses how cold and flu germs are spread.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Saturday at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m.  Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
