This exposes you to colds, flu, or any other contagious disease that another passenger may have brought on board.

The dryness of the cabin air enhances you susceptibility to disease. Maintaining a general state of good health by eating right, exercising regularly, and getting enough sleep is also important.

It is particularly dangerous for people who are at risk for blood clots and other circulatory problems.
