Since I stopped trying pupils setups every once in a while and started avoiding
it unless first treating reed and mouthpiece with hydrogenperoxide, I've
stopped getting colds several times a year and stopped getting the flu at least
once a year. Since then, I haven't missed a day of work for illness in years.
Sounds like I might also have missed out on some more interesting diseases!
