- Lift Weights to Lower Blood Sugar : Very interesting research into the benefits of ‘white muscle‘. Over to the University of Michigan.
- Exercise Boosts Memory : The research continues into another benefit of a little time in the gym – improved memory.
- Life Without Sleep : A fascinating essay on the research into minimising – or even ending – the need for sleep. Good stuff.
- Kidney Grown in Lab Successfully Transplanted in Animal : In a huge step forward, a team at Massachusetts General Hospital have successfully grown a kidney in a lab, and implanted it into a living animal (in this case, a rat). Very promising indeed.
There were also a number of things discussed on the Straight to the Bar Community pages, and in the daily ‘Paper‘. However you like to get your dose of ‘What’s happening in the world of fitness?‘, we’ve got you covered. Swing by.
