Exercise in a PILL? What do you think about that?

This article says, "The drug works by by tapping into the molecular pathways that normally reprogram muscle in response to exercise. "

Would you take it? Would you trust it? Should insurance cover it? Should scientists be working on this?

If it's too good to be true, it probably is.

I agree, Kat.

I think it's socially and financially irresponsible to even work on & spend money on developing such a thing.

But hey, I suppose as long as people are willing to spend money on it, someone will do it.

There is no medicine or pill that is without side effects. What are they for this pill? Shorter life span?
And, apparently it works by switching from sugar-burning to fat-burning. Isn't that what lowcarb does naturally?

The pill might do exactly as it says - make your muscles believe they have just exercised hard. That means lactic acid buildup, increased breathing and heart rate, etc. But what else will it do to unsuspecting pill swallowers? That's the REAL question! SMP
