Bad luck coincidence: A person can catch a cold no matter what kind of breathing he is doing. He can catch a cold no matter how many days he is doing or not doing some sort of activity, like breathing exercises. He can also develop any other illness (like the flu, the whooping cough, tuberculosis, etc...) while doing such breathing exercises, because such illnesses are NOT actually caused by the breathing.
