Marathon Runners
This weeks news study worries me just a little bit, not because I overexercise, but because I can see it being used as an excuse to not exercise at all. The results of a recent study by Dr. James O'Keefe are all over the news today. To be fair, the results only indicate that the extremely fit (think Lance Armstrong, or Bruce Lee) are at an increased risk. Click this link to watch the video from Dr O'Keefe. . Here are just a few of the news stories written about the article. what are your thoughts?
