If you have kids, you invariably get sick more often—but how often, exactly? A new study by scientists at the University of Utah School of Medicine reveals that big families have viral infections for an amazing 87 percent of the year.
Kids, especially young ones, pick up everything. The only avenue I could see skewing the findings in the study would be for people who work in healthcare. I don’t think I’ve ever been sicker than when I worked in a hospital, and that was on the maternity ward.
The study confirms what we’ve known, but provides nothing of real value. Is anyone going to stop having kids because of this?
