What are the odds of getting bronchitis?

Why gamble? You get sick when you are susceptible...You are susceptible when you are tired, have poor diet, smoke, run yourself ragged, stressed etc. Eating well, eliminating junk food/processed food, drinking water, staying hydrated, getting rest, etc are all ways to reduce your chances of getting any illness. Being seen when you are coughing up phlegm or have prolonged symptoms also helps.
