More Exciting News for Mice

In the early days of this blog, I reported the unexpected benefits mice can enjoy while drinking red wine on first class flights.

Now scientists reveal great effects of a new drug on mouse nest-potatoes:

“Sedentary mice that took the drug for four weeks burned more calories and had less fat than untreated mice. And when tested on a treadmill, they could run about 44 percent farther and 23 percent longer than untreated mice.”

Unfortunately the drug does not build up muscle, so corpulent mice would be advised to carry large chunks of cheese for strength training.

(Don’t blame me if these blog posts are non-nonsensical. I’m just interpreting the news.)
