Feeling KOOL – Women and Weight Training

Women who train with weights are at less risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.  A study of the long-term health of 100-thousand nurses showed that women who lifted weights or did some other form of muscle-strengthening exercise reduced their risk of diabetes.  Those who combine aerobic activity with weight training reduced their risk the most.  Researchers at Harvard Medical School say the additional muscle may act as a buffer to the onset of diabetes in adults.
