Cold-blooded

    Warmer days are ahead. And they’ll be here well before spring. It’s all because our bodies are made to adjust to temperatures, science shows. The first cold snap of the season will feel brutal, but as the winter wears on, our perception of the cold will wane as  nerve endings adjust to the climate. At least, that’s how Dr. Ausim Azizi of Temple University’s School of Medicine explained it to Health & Science reporter Carolyn Beeler.
