Cold season over, allergy season starting

Man, I'm not sure which is worse: a cold or allergies. At least a cold comes and goes. Allergies can make you feel crappy for months.

If you're not into that cracked-out feeling that Claritin gives you, Reader's Digest has a list of alternate ways to protect yourself. Some of the advice that got my attention is...

1) Choose chicken over beef
3) Turn on the AC
9) Bleach your shower curtain
11) Wash your bedding in hot water weekly
