It is a common thing to believe that we spontaneously become more immune to infections if we go outdoors, and while we are spending time on some wilderness adventure we will not catch colds or things like that; instead, it is not fresh air what turns us healthy, but the lack of it within cities and closed rooms what makes us ill.

The two things are not the same, and while the difference may seem semantically subtle, it is not; however, the myth is based on concrete facts: It would seem that generally speaking, as we spend time on any outdoor adventure in the middle of the wilderness we become more resistant and would not get ill while under even more benign circumstances back in town we would certainly.

What happens in reality is that in closed quarters or situations in which we are forced or feel more comfortable closing doors and staying close to other people, as hors pass the air becomes loaded with microorganisms that indeed, increment the odds of us catching an infection. That is, the longer we stay indoors, the higher the odds against our health.

Catching a cold has nothing to do with cold weather, but with what we tend to do when the situation is like that. So, in order not to catch a cold even in the coldest possible weather, if you are camping around, let fresh air inside your tent or cabin every day, ventilate your sleeping bag and your clothes, and stay as much as possible outside.
