A study by the University of Michigan recently found that a pill could potentially replace exercise. A naturally occurring protein called Sestrin was able to mimic the effects of exercise in flies and mice throughout the study. Researchers created a “fly treadmill” to train flies to climb up and down a test tube. Sestrin could possibly help older individuals maintain their muscles.  What if this technology became reality? What else would be awesome to have instant results with no effort?
