Pippard Vigander  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Hi Chris,

I keep hearing from several sources that being cold or wearing wet clothes (especially underwear) can cause urinary infections, especially in girls. Is there any good evidence of this?

I am skeptical, and immediately think of the mythical link between being cold and getting a cold.

Cheers,
Sverre Vigander, Norway

What do you think?
