UW-Madison study tests if meditation or exercise can ward off colds/flu
Who needs flu vaccine when you exercise your risk away - or maybe even meditate?
University of Wisconsin-Madison is studying 150 residents to see if exercise and meditation can ward off colds and the flu.
It's well-known that meditation can reduce stress, and prevent certain chronic diseases.
But Dr. Bruce Barrett says the new study hopes to find out if meditation or exercise can help the immune system keep respiratory infections away.
