Exercise has a crucial role to play in the maintenance of good health, with an abundance of research supporting that regular exercise is effective at reducing obesity rates and decreasing the risks of diseases such as type-II diabetes, some cancers, and cardiovascular disease. Despite all the benefits, exercise is not always that easy for individuals to do. For some individuals injury or sickness might preclude exercise. For others, simple motivation can be difficult. And exercise also has some negative effects. Therefore current research in the field of mimetics is looking at how advances in technology and science might allow alternate methods for individuals to get the benefits of exercise without exercising. In an ideal world, a bed-ridden individual might be able to take a pill that would give them the benefits of exercise despite the inability to get up and go for a run.
