While 88 percent of non-exercised mice had severe damage, only 45 percent of the treadmill-exercised animals did...

Lynn Allison

“When our brains perceive that we don’t have enough resources to cope with our current demands, it triggers a cascade of reactions and rampant hormones in the body designed to help us short term to run away or fight off danger.
