I have been gluten free since January and mostly (80%) grain free since September. I have not had so much as a cold this entire year. Yes, I am knocking on wood! Probably a good thing since I no longer eat chicken noodle soup.

What am I doing? Depends on the day.
I haven't been sick since I switched to primal...but I also hadn't been sick for about 4 years before that, either. I think I have a freakshow of an immune system--I work with kids regularly but never get anything they have. I can remember being legitimately stay-home sick maybe 2-3 times in the last 12 years or so.
People grow up with CW and just don't know any better, and don't know any better to look/research for anything better.
Then again, it's the whole sheep thing, step out of the flock and think for yourself, I think that's everyone's responsibility and to blindly believe everything in the media/government is irresponsible IMO.

I couldn't do it either for the longest time. Then I asked Paleobird and she told me.
I only care about how others eat/drink when they're sick because they bring it to work, pass it around and then I get sick. Or I used to get sick. I still got my sudden-change-in-weather cold this year but it was much milder. A lot of people I work with drink starbucks and eat poorly when they're sick because they feel too guilty to call in to work (which is fucking stupid, by the way) so they reward themselves with sugar and milk. That's a surefire way to keep yourself sick.
Unfortunately being primal hasn't cured my asthma or my sinus problems. I do, however, catch far fewer colds than I used to.
