Why Exercise is Good For Your Brain

Most of us know that exercise is good for your heart, lungs, muscle, bones and joints.

Oh……Sugar!

Oh……Sugar!

33% of the world’s population has high blood pressure, whereas only 5% had it in 1900. Diabetes has increased from 153 million people in 1980, to 347 million today.

Most of this sugar consumption is in the form of processed foods and […]
