Fasting

I just read in Prevention Magazine that "Mormons' superior heart health may stem from their traditional practice of fasting one day each month." Dr. Donald Lloyd Jones said, "If you have fasted for at least 12 hours, your liver handles a fatty meal much more efficiently-with less insulin and less elevation of blood pressure."
It's amazing to me how something that I've just thought of as a spiritual blessing (fasting and growing closer to the Lord) also gives us temporal blessings as well. Very cool.
