Exercise Builds Brain Cells

As if the plethora of aliments already known to be prevented or mitigated by exercise weren't good enough (hearth disease, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, colon cancer, depression, anxiety and osteoporosis to name a few), now there is another: Exercise actually builds brain cells! MRI scans indicate that cell growth occurs in the region of the hippocampus associated with memory and memory loss. So if you are worry about losing your memory, or just have a bad one to begin with like me, try getting on the treadmill :-)
