Gym-lovers more prone to become drug-lovers

You know those people who just LOVE to work out? Don’t feel badly if you’re not one of them. It turns out all that exercise is making those gym-lovers more prone to become drug-lovers.

The University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign did a study on the link between exercise and addiction. Researcher’s separated mice into two groups. Those that exercised, and those that didn’t. Then, researchers got all the mice hooked on cocaine.

Turns out, the mice that had been exercising had a much harder time breaking their drug habit! The study shows, the mice getting exercise had an increased brain capacity which gave them more room to learn. Problem is, the mice learned to be addicted to coke.

So, as long as you use that increased brain power to be productive, and not to start a meth lab in your garage, you should be fine!
