Taking regular exercise can help in almost any given health situation. As reported in the Daily mail (24 09 08). Taking regular exercise can help pregnant women stop smoking, researchers found.

Two studies showed a quarter of women who exercised regularly while expecting a baby managed to quit smoking.

Aerobic exercise has been prescribed for a wide range of medical disorders (including heart disease, arthritis and diabetes) and tipped as a potential treatment for various psychiatric conditions, especially depression.
