Burning fat without exercising

This is pretty amazing stuff. Researchers have come up with a pill that allows a person's body to switch on a gene that would normally burn body fat during exercise. And this pharmaceutical does this sans exercise.

Calling it an exercise pill, a Dr Fredrik Karpe stated (in the article below) that the pill would be unlikely to provide all the other benefits normally afforded to those who actually engage in exercise. And, by that, I think he means, among other things, cardiovascular conditioning.

But, good grief, a pill that allows your body to flip a switch and start burning fat...By any estimation, that would be incredible. And it could be a boon to those older indivduals with slower metabolisms and individuals who are medically at risk due to obesity.

Of course, it could potentially be a detriment to the diet supplement industry, not to mention all the various publications that are devoted to providing diet advice and tips.
