Postmenopausal women can fight off hot flushes and night sweats through weight-training, a new clinical trial shows.

Researchers randomly assigned 58 women experiencing at least four moderate-to-severe hot flushes or night sweats daily to 15 weeks of resistance training or to a control group whose members did not change their physical activity.
