The Common Cold is one problem that refused to bow down to any scientific developments so far. Across civilizations, it is causally said that with or without medicine, the cold will take a week at least to subside. But the situation is going to change. According to new research British scientists, they have prepared a compound that will bind with the virus that causes common cold and will destroy its genetic material so that despite sneezing, the infection won’t spread to people surrounding.
The mechanism will be effective in stopping other diseases like Polio which spread through air or touch, the Oxford University scientists say. The research is published in the reputed science magazine “Nature”.
