A workout pill to get buff without any workouts at all?
July 30, 2015
Will the workout pill build muscles without exercises
Couch potatoes rejoice
Research from Britain says you could get the benefits of exercises without ever leaving your couch
It is a pill that researchers from Britain's University of Southampton announced they had synthesized to make slobs look like "The Rock"..
Without as much as ever lifting a dumbbell!
This pill, christened "Compound 14" works by tricking your cells into thinking it has no energy left.
By some bio-chemical voodoo, the cell then produces the same benefits as if you had worked out with Mr Universe
Here is where you can read about this Something from Nothing Pill
Well, I am sorry to bust the bubble of those who would like to flip their remote, pet Fifi all day, and still look like the Incredible Hulk
I am not buying this research.
Call me a professional skeptic-a charge I would deny.
Where have we seen this movie before?
Oh yes, with a lot of drugs that generate lots of profits for their manufacturers, but compromize your health.
Such drugs as Statins!
Now, the authorities say you don't have to worry that much about your cholesterol level
I could have said I told you so; but I am not going to
Anyway, this has not stopped drug manufacturers from continuiung to advertise cholesterol lowering drugs
While the hype about cholesterol lowering drugs was in high gear, I warned about the fraudulent nature of StatinsNow, even the U.S government agrees with me and with other researchers who over the years, have been warnign about the dangers of Statins.
Read here my 50 cents take on this cholesterol hoax
Another example? Hormonal Replacement Therapy!
No doctor worth his/her Stethoscope would dare swear about their safety
And in most cases, the surprises are very unpleasant.
The idea of getting buff without ever lifting a finger sounds like wishful thinking to me.
See, because some research looks good in a Petri dish does not mean it will translate to an effective, safe product for humans
I am not a big shot researcher with all of the letters of the alphabet after his name.
And common sense tells me you
can't get something from nothing.
And if this research proves me wrong, I'll be the first to jump on it
Besides, we can cure the obesity epidemic that's now world wide
ButI hate to be the kill-joy again, I am not betting on it.
Want to lose weight and flatten your stomach, I advice you not wait for this Cindarella Pill.
My gut feeling is that this pill will fizzle out!
And if by some intrigue-that's how Aspartame got on your dinner table-it gets into the marketplace, the side effects will be as unpleasant as the other synthetics that have destroyed people's health.
You want the benefits of exercise?
Exercises-the right exercises-confer on you more benefits than a pill can ever deliver.
And that's assuming such a pill works.
My bet is that this won't!
If you want to lose your beer gut, you better not fall for false promises regardless of the number of degrees the experts have
