Can exercise protect us from the deleterious effects of mental stress? Yes, according to new research by Sales et al. Listen as Associate Editor Nancy Kanagy interviews lead author Antonio Nobrega (Fluminense Federal University, Brazil) and expert David Poole (Kansas State University) about this fascinating new research into how just 40 minutes of exercise can prevent or reverse the loss of endothelial function due to mental stress in patients with metabolic syndrome. Should we all invest in a treadmill for the office? Listen and find out.
