This was the title of a 1946 NHS information film advising people to use a handkerchief to stop the spread of the cold and flu virus.
Unfortunately even today “they” haven’t found a cure or preventative towards colds or flu. The ramifications that come with vaccines make them no longer an option and reaching for remedies from nature is becoming more the norm for those that don’t trust the short and long term effects of over the counter drugs.
Grannies and great grannies used to advise rubbing goose fat on the chest, not so outrageous when you think of all the natural, easily made vapour rubs, (see www.mommypotamus.com/diy-vicks-vapor-rub for example) which, incidentally is best used rubbed on the feet and covered with a pair of socks at bedtime to stop the tickly cough that keeps you awake. Said to increase sluggish blood circulation at congested areas it is also thought to act on reflexology points. Fantastic non-intrusive remedy for babies and children.
