    I'd like to see it on a much larger sample size and humans or pigs. 3 mice doesn't say much for the legitimacy of the study.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

      I'll keep a look out for future reports of the mice growing extra limbs.

          Shit like this makes me wish all that rapture crap was true.

            This truly saddens me. I cannot remember the post where someone put the youtube video of "the last man", but this truly shows that we have come to a point where we, as a society, are starting to choose to stop progressing and live comfortably.

              in my opinion testing on mice, doesnt really do it for me when it has been sucesfully tested on humans i may consider my opinion on it but at the moment i think it is waste of time and effort

                What I've learnt over the last 20-ish years studying various supplements and psychology is that there are always side-effects that crop up sooner or later. Boost something faster than we are biologically built to naturally handle and something else falls apart somewhere down the line, guaranteed. Natural is best. Slower, for sure, but best.

                  That is most definitely cheating.
                  In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

                    Eh, it's just a new form of steroids. Will be neat to see what the side effects end up being, I'm sure a lot of athletes are keeping a close eye on this.

                        So then we just need to find what shrivels the dick, and reverse it. BOOM, INSTANT PROFIT!

                              I gave a journal club presentation on the paper this article is referring to. The study on mice can be found here...

                              AMPK and PPARdelta agonists are exercise mimetics. [Cell. 2008] - PubMed result

                              As for athletes keeping a close eye on this, well, AICAR and GW1516 are both officially banned from use in competition by the World Anti-doping Agency. I like the term they coined..."Gene Doping". Bottom of page 6 on this PDF...
