I’ve heard that dairy products can make a cold worse. Is that true? Are some foods better than others when fighting a cold?

There may not be any scientific evidence to support the claim that dairy can thicken or increase mucus. It is most important to maintain a healthy diet to support your immune system. Be sure to always include a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables in your daily diet.
