Scientists Prove “Feed a Cold, Starve a Fever” Is True

A new study out of the Yale School of Medicine found that the old saying “feed a cold, starve a fever” is pretty much SPOT ON.

 

 

The researchers found that when you have a viral infection like a cold or the flu, eating helps you recover and get through it.

 

 

But when you have a fever because of a bacterial infection like a staph infection or food poisoning, eating actually makes things worse.

 

 

I mean . . . you need to eat something.  But they say to avoid sugary foods and stick to small portions of things like chicken and yogurt.
