We’ve been roaring away for years about the wonder of exercise. Here’s a weird new piece: In today’s Times, there’s an article about HOW exercise works its magic. Turns out that the answer may be that it actually “changes the shape and function of our genes” in critical ways that make everything better. Just how this occurs is still unclear. That it DOES occur is not. Exercise is the single great key to the good life. Now and forever. By the way, the new science of this stuff is called “epigenetics”. Isn’t that adorable?
You might want to try to remember that as we waddle into the holidays: eat and drink yourself stupid (I intend to) but keep up with the exercise just the same. It’ll save your life. And make it easier to start over in the New Year. Ho Ho Ho Chris
