There could be a pill to help people who do not exercise. Scientists say the exercise pill could make us healthier. It could give us more stamina, a better mood, a healthier heart and a longer life – all with no exercise. The pill gave mice 70 per cent more stamina. This is good news for people who hate exercise.

The scientists looked at how exercise changes the body. A researcher wanted to know if he could replace exercise with a drug. He found a chemical that copies the good things about exercise without exercising. The chemical burnt body fat instead of sugar. This increases our stamina without needing to exercise.
