Exercise In A Pill?



Could old-fashioned gym workouts soon be a thing of the past?
 
According to the New York Times, scientists are developing a pill that would give your body all the benefits of exercise, WITHOUT any extra effort on your part.
Their work is based on a study published in Nature Medicine. Researchers injected a compound into obese mice that increased production of the muscle protein REV-ERB, 
The animals injected with the compound lost weight and improved their cholesterol levels – even when on a high-fat diet. The injected mice also used more oxygen during the day and expended 5 percent more energy compared to mice in the control group – even though they were not exercising more. Here a link to more info on that study.
 
We're still years away from this pill being available for humans. If it were available today, would you try it?
