I do not know where they dig the facts up from sometimes but apparantly a study has been made on all the various ways of retaining health and Fitness and the way to retain it is to get a bike- Something all of us know about. This was on the Morning news yesterday. Startling observation I know- but cycling was put above all other forms of exercise- because of the Minimal cost of getting started and it is easier on the body and leg joints.
Second thing is that they think they have discovered why the Scots have the worst rate for heart Disease in the the UK. Apparantly it is Because they do not see much winter Sun. Nothing to do with the fact that They drink a lot more than the rest of the UK- Or that they have a lower exercise rate than the rest of us. Or the fact that as it is a lot colder up there- You just cannot get out and exercise.
Any startlingly obvious News over your side of the Pond that springs to mind?
