Exercise in a Pill

No need to get off the couch after all! Scientists experiment with a compound that they say can produce the effects of exercise without exercising. Research so far has only involved mice, but after initial studies it was found that the tested mice could run 44% farther on a treadmill after treatment. The substance is called AICAR, and in the wake of this study, scientists predict it will “fly off the shelves.” It is readily available at most scientific supply outlets, so knock yourselves out.
