Scientists may soon have a pill to help people who do not exercise. It could also help people who do exercise. The scientists work in California. Their pill could give the same benefits to the body as it gets from running. It could make us healthier, and give us more stamina, a better mood, a healthier heart and a longer life – all with no exercise. The pill increased the performance in mice by 70 per cent. This is good news for people who want to exercise more.

The scientists looked at how exercise changes the body. A researcher said: "It's well known that people can improve their…endurance through training. The question for us was….Can we replace training with a drug?" He found a chemical that copies the positive effects of exercise without exercising. The chemical made the body burn fat instead of sugar. This improves your stamina to the same level as someone who exercises.
