Default Re: Exercise Decreases Depression --> Why?

This is a great research topic.

It is insane how much money people are spending on depression pills every year. Yet, scientists have been saying for a while now, that exercise is probably the best anti-depressant solution in existence. And guess what--it costs nothing! Just grab a pair of shoes and go run.

It would seem that this type of research would be of great interest to the health insurance industry. A one year gym membership would save millions of dollars per year when compared to diseases and other health related issues that costs them in, dare I say, unnecessary drugs, treatments and operations.

Jacob maybe you can get funding for more research utilizing this avenue? [img]/forum/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Vision is purpose, and when your purpose is clear so are your life choices. Vision creates faith and faith creates willpower. With faith there is no anxiety, no doubt - just absolute confidence." - Arnold Schwarzenegger
