  • Being exposed to the elements can weaken your immune response, but it does not cause illness. Viral and bacterial agents are the cause of illness, not cold or wet.

  • Nope. Colds are caused by a virus, not low temperatures.

  • No. A germ causes a cold, not the temp.

  • it can make your immune system weaker, but that in and of itself will not give you a cold.

  • Nope. Seems people here realize that, but try to tell someone that if you go out with your hair not completely 100% dried...

  • What they all said.

    If it were true, no one would be able to live in cold weather climates like Canada or Alaska.
