Research by a Davidson College neuroscientist and students demonstrates
that the benefits of regular exercise include a lowered tendency to
become addicted to illegal drugs.

Mark A. Smith that shows that exercise can help prevent drug addiction.
Smith said his research provides scientific validity for a
long-standing suspicion among drug abuse researchers that exercise
plays a role in helping people avoid and overcome drug addiction.

of substance abuse," said Smith. "But there were previously no data
that showed a cause and effect relationship."
