A 17-year-old female asked:

Does strenuous exercise kill brain cells?

Dr. Joseph Bouvier
Pediatrics 26 years experience
No: The only way you are going to kill brain cells with exercise is with periods of hypoxia (low oxygen) which should not happen in a normal healthy person. Or if yo experience a traumatic brain injury.
Dr. John Munshower
Family Medicine 31 years experience
No: Exercise is good for you. Ask your dr. For a program that is best suited for your personal medical condition and goal.
