    A cold is a virus isnt it that is caused by airbourne stuff. Germs can give you things like salmonella ( I cant spell). I hate it when people say if you go outside with wet hair you will get a cold and also if it is raining and you get wet you will get a cold - stupid people!!!

    I get colds when I am run down and not had enough sleep as my body cant fight anything!

    No, birth defects are a combination of genetic copying errors and ionising radiation and toxic chemicals. Particularly chemicals produced by the chemical industry since its inception in the early 20th century, or whenever it came to prominence. Cancer is caused by or represents mutations of the genetic code, this is the result of ionising radiation or toxic chemicals. Certain 'foods' can contain carcinogens too, many caused by the process of cooking such as acrylamides (spelling?) in the case of carbohydrates and toxic amines in the case of meat.
