Another Reason to Exercise: It Makes You Smarter

Personally, I have always thought exercise makes you smarter. While I swear I can feel it, I have never really had any prior scientific proof that this is the case (aside from my mean sudoku skills). Until now...

A recent report is showing that exercise can make people smarter. The researchers on the study announced that they had managed to get the human brain to grow new nerve cells, a process that for decades had been thought impossible, simply by putting subjects on a three-month aerobic-workout regimen. Furthermore, researchers have found also that vigorous exercise revives old cells and make the brain run faster and more efficiently.

Very scientific, I know, but very cool. Getting out and getting moving means getting smarter, healthier and perhaps leaner.
