We all on the East Coast know that the cold weather is on its way. But, did you know that the cold temperatures benefit your health?
Colder temperatures may help reduce allergies and inflammation and research has shown that it does help us think more clearly and perform daily tasks more efficiently.

The cold can also help lower the risk of some diseases. Mosquitoes that carry diseases such as Zika, West Nile Virus and Malaria are not around during the winter season.
