Get Up Off That Couch, Prevent A Cold

Here's what we're checking out today:

Sniffle: A new study suggests that you'll get fewer colds if you're older, male and married. If you're none of the above, getting regular exercise seems to prevent the sniffles, Julie Deardorff reports for the Chicago Tribune.

Dental Care: The New York Times' Joyce Cohen reports on the debate over whether paraprofessionals should provide much-needed dental care in areas where (mostly poor, rural)) people can't get it. You can check out our tips for covering access to dental care here.

Bad Science: Katherine Bouton reviews British doctor-columnist Ben Goldacre's new book Bad Science: Quacks, Hacks, and Big Pharma Flacks, in the New York Times.

Nutrition: Despite efforts by public health advocates to remove junk food from the nation's schools, sweetened sodas and other unhealthy drinks still are widely available on campus, according to a new report. Reuters' Julie Steenhuysen has the story.

Health Reform: The Washington Post's Ezra Klein handicaps the GOP's chances for rolling back health reforms, depending on the party's performance in today's election.
