Scientists Close In on Making Pill That Can Duplicate Effects of Exercising

Published

on

Researchers believe they have made progress toward creating a fat-burning supplement that could mirror the effects of exercise. But hold off on throwing away your running gear just yet. For the time being, our idealized days of eating potato chips in our underwear while playing video games or watching TV on the couch are still a dream.

A Stepping Stone

Scientists at the esteemed Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States believe they have deciphered the genetic code, which will enable them to manipulate portions of the body’s cells to function backward.

Getting Technical

Particularly, mesenchymal stem cells develop into apparatus for storing fat. Exercise typically flicks the switch on that, but as scientists better understand this process, it’s possible that they’ll develop drugs that do it without requiring us to get up off the couch.

Despite this, it can take years before medication is used to treat your severe case of persistent indolence. On October 4, the findings were released in the medical journal Cell Metabolism.

Published

After realizing he has a higher than average risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, actor Chris Hemsworth said he is taking a vacation from performing. After taking testing for his Disney+ documentary series Limitless, the Thor actor discovered the revelation.

A Huge Deal

Hemsworth discovered that he carries two copies of the gene ApoE4, one from each parent, increasing his risk of contracting the illness by eight to ten times compared to people who don’t carry both copies of the gene.

Being Careful

Hemsworth tests his body and looks into ways to live longer and healthier in the Limitless series. He clarified that although he had not received a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, he had been informed of the increased risk.

The creator of the series, Darren Aronofsky, told Hemsworth privately when they received the results, contrary to the original plan for the series, which called for him to get all of his genetic test results live on camera.

22 Years Later, “Little Hercules,” the World’s Strongest Boy, Leads a Radically Different Life

22 years after his bodybuilding triumphs, the former “World’s Strongest Boy,” also known as the “Little Hercules,” leads a totally different existence.

Life goes by so fast

Due to his entire weight loss, Richard Sandrak no longer resembles the Richard Sandrak of his youth.

Richard had an excellent physique, eight-pack abs, and impressively defined arms and legs when he was eight years old, 22 years ago.

He was a master in karate in his youth and had the strength to lift three times his body weight.

Richard was named the “World’s Strongest Boy” when he was just 11 years old, but it wasn’t all that it was meant to be.

The adolescent weight lifter was said to have a dangerously low body fat percentage of just 1% as a result of his training.

According to Men’s Journal, having such low body fat can lead to major health problems like being more susceptible to serious cardiac problems, being ill frequently, and having muscles that are so weak that you struggle to move around.

Andreas Munzer, an Austrian bodybuilder who passed away more than 25 years ago, continues to serve as a lesson for all bodybuilders trying to lose body fat.

He perished away at the young age of 31, and an autopsy revealed that he had no body fat at the time of his death.

Following the release of a video about the young Richard, his parents faced a great deal of backlash. Many people claimed that subjecting him to such painful training was cruel and unethical of his parents.

A youngster Richard’s age wouldn’t be able to produce enough testosterone to get in the form he was in, according to several medical experts at the time.

Despite Richard’s mother’s repeated denials, they alleged that he was using steroids, which are strongly discouraged for kids.

Richard, who is now an adult, acknowledged that he no longer has any interest in bodybuilding.

I don’t do weights anymore, Richard stated in a 2015 interview with Inside Edition.

There are several children with a similar physique, yet people tried to make me out to be some sort of freak of nature.

I have a lot of pride in my past.

“I don’t want others to know it, but I’m not going to be forced to live there,” she said.

Since his days as the “World’s Strongest Boy,” Richard’s career has taken some turns; as of 2015, he was a stuntman for the Universal Studios Hollywood Waterworld show.

The former bodybuilder did acknowledge that he still performs cardio activities on occasion to maintain his fitness.
