Day 13: Exercise

Sweat! Believe it or not sweating is really good for us. It's one way the body releases the toxins from the body.
Breathe! Most of us are shallow breathers ... but Breathing deep fills our body with oxygen, and get this, cancer can not survive in a well oxygenated body. I did not know this.
Build! Strength Training helps us build healthy muscles as well as bones!
