Physician, devour thyself.

A great article here:

it talks about research recently published in Nature  into *why* exercise is so good for you..

Dr Levine and her team were testing a theory that exercise works its magic, at least in part, by promoting autophagy. This process, whose name is derived from the Greek for “self-eating”, is a mechanism by which surplus, worn-out or malformed proteins and other cellular components are broken up for scrap and recycled.



  1. How did you come across that article? That's a new one to me.

  2. Ok, I never knew that. Heck, I just know exercise is good... keeping it simple!

  3. Very interesting article...thanks for sharing that with us. It adds a new twist to the concept of sweating out the weakness, etc.

  4. That is quite something different. Very interesting indeed.
