As cyclists we all know how relaxing a hot bath can be after a long or chilly ride. What if your hot bath was just as effective as cycling or running when it comes to your health? In fact, many cultures swear by the benefits of a hot bath.
Recently science has revealed that passive heating actually improves health. Dr Steve Faulkner, a researcher at Loughborough University, says a hot bath may have similar benefits to exercising and even help prevent type 2 diabetes.
