WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Here’s a treatment that’s a treat: new research suggests frequent sex may help prevent colds.

A study conducted by researchers at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, reveals that people who make love once or twice a week are more immune to colds than folks who abstain from sex.

Researchers believe bedroom activity somehow stimulates an immune-boosting antibody called IgA. Levels of the antibody in people who have sex at least once or twice per week is higher than in those who abstain.

The bad news for people who think they’ve found a fun cure for the common cold is that having sex more than twice a week won’t help you fight off colds at all.

People who have sex three or more times a week actually have lower levels of IgA than those who do it only once or twice a week.
