Re: Important Health Information

* Actually, I think that it is true that we only have a set number of heart beats to spend. Regular CV exercise might double your heart rate for an hour or two, but it lowers your resting heart rate. At the end of the day you've spent fewer beats. Those who exercise too infrequently don't lower the resting rate and do shorten their lives. Likewise, those who over train don't lower their resting rate enough to compensate and also shorten their life.

* I heard on Public Radio, just the other day, that chocolate itself without added sugar and fats is one of the healthiest things to eat on the planet.
