Schwarzenegger Mice!

mighty-mouse–Mice have been genetically engineered that can run twice as far and about an hour longer than their unaltered brethren.  The mice also stay in peak condition, even without exercise or a good diet!

Delta class proteins from the peroxisome proliferator activated receptors (PPARs) are felt to be responsible, doing so by increasing the amount of slow-twitch muscle, which burns fat, resists fatigue, and provides energy for sustained, high-endurance activities like running…

…so thanks to the humble mouse, lazy humans may someday be buff jocks without even trying!

    Yeah! PETA should go after people who name any pet “Eugene.” Too many _people_ with that name get beaten up, as it is!
