I wanted to share this Canadian news headline with you-all- about results of a health study.

CBC news

Thanks for the link.  I read the article and it certainly makes sense although I think it really applies to both sexes.  To be honest, I believe the premise that exercise aids blood flow to the brain and helps it process more effectively is a fairly well-established fact.   However, it doesn't hurt to be reminded every so often.  Thanks for doing that.  :)

4.5 cm AN diagnosed 5/06.  Retrosigmoid surgery 6/06.  Follow-up FSR completed 10/06.  Tumor shrinkage & necrosis noted on last MRI.  Life is good. 

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It's the way it is.  The way we cope with it is what makes the difference.
