Scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, CA announced on Thursday that they've developed a drug that gives you the benefits of exercise without actually doing anything. Unfortunately, they tested the compound on mice instead of my bedridden lover.
Sedentary mice that took the drug for four weeks burned more calories and had less fat than untreated mice. And when tested on a treadmill, they could run about 44 percent farther and 23 percent longer than untreated mice.
We have exercise in a pill," said Ron Evans, an author of the study. "With no exercise, you can take a drug and chemically mimic it."
When asked what was in the drug, Evans replied, "It's difficult to explain....but have you ever been to a rave?"
