Another reason to get off the couch! You may reduce your chances of getting the two to five colds the average adult suffers each year. The couch potato is more likely to suffer from a cold than a regular exerciser, according Dr. Charles E. Matthews of the University of South Carolina. He reported in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise (August 2002) that the most active people have 25 percent fewer colds over a year compared to the least active.
