Science Friday

A few more articles on why I hate it when folks tell people not to do stuff for stupid reasons. First up, according to a study in this New York Times article, strong women are smarter women.
Older women who did an hour or two of strength training exercises each week had improved cognitive function a year later, scoring higher on tests of the brain processes responsible for planning and executing tasks, a new study has found.
Hear that? Pick up those weights and no more of this, "I don't want to bulk up" nonsense. Seriously ladies, embrace strength training. And while you're at it, get some gaming in: Research has also found that off-the-shelf video games have the potential to help seniors age more gracefully, keeping their minds sharp and responsive through game play.

I, for one, am going to be brilliant when I'm old.
