During the past week we’ve discussed a number of great links; on Google+, Twitter, Nuzzel and so on. Here are a few of my favourites.

  • Ford Tests The EksoVest (an upper-body exoskeleton to assist with overhead tasks) : Interesting – suspect that uses such as this will rapidly reduce the prices of the various medical counterparts.
  • Daytime Injuries Heal Twice As Fast As Wounds Sustained At Night : Hope this will lead to a number of improved medical procedures (if you can fool the affected area into thinking it’s daytime, the wound will heal much faster).
  • Removing Rogue Proteins (and several forms of cancer) : Promising.
  • Group Exercise Improves Quality Of Life, Reduces Stress (far more than individual workouts) : Very interesting research.
  • Replacement, Genetically Modified Skin : Fantastic.

We also talked about A miniature foam roller (the Neofit), Research on the antiaging potential of various mushrooms and a whole lot more. Keep up with the World of Health & Fitness in the Straight to the Bar Community on Google+.
