We’ve told you how to make your flu shot work better, but the big question is: why does flu strike during the winter?

In LiveScience.com, Dave Mosher writes about a new study that shows that the flu virus?s success depends on low relative humidity and cold temperatures?and that describes winter weather. The virus can live longer in cold, dry weather than it can in hot, humid conditions. Mosher quotes virologist Peter Palese as saying, “We’ve always thought the immune system wasn’t as active during the winter, but that doesn’t really seem to be the case.”

But it doesn’t end there. Suddenly–incredibly–they launch into a discussion of all sorts of secrets, including the Kennedy assassination, and talk about an extremely powerful but unnamed man they both knew, who apparently possessed some of the greatest secrets of modern times, a man Dr. Lerma helped during his last days in his transition to the other side.
