You read that right. Just 4 seconds of intense physical activity is enough to keep your body healthy. Seems too good to be true, right?!
Well, one of our favorite writers & HER regulars is back on the show to tell us more. Gretchen Reynolds writes the popular "Phys Ed" column for The New York Times, which posts online as part of the "Well" blog and also appears in the print edition of the paper's "Science Times."
