Research: Molecules Change and Research Center

research: Basically, we're looking to learn which molecules change in our bodies after exercise and which molecules transmit the benefits to the organs and tissues that aren't directly involved in physical activity, said Dr, according to CTV. Tuomo Rankinen, an associate professor at Louisiana State University's Pennington Biomedical Research Center, and co-leader of Pennington's share of the study. Decades of research have shown that exercise is good for people, but scientists don't know what's going on at the body's most basic level. Pennington is among 12 universities and institutions working together to study 2,400 sedentary adults and 300 who work out at least four hours a week. Forty per cent of the sedentary people will be chosen at random for four hours a week of supervised endurance training, 40 per cent for supervised resistance training and the rest will be assigned to remain couch potatoes. They'll be looking for people from a variety of racial and ethnic groups. ( As reported in the news.
