There's an interesting article in the New York Times about recent findings of causes of muscle fatigue. Here's the link:<br><a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/12/health/research/12musc.html?em&ex=1203051600&en=627f6a21952d029a&ei=5087%0A" target="_blank">http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/12/he...29a&ei=5087%0A</a><br><br>
Enjoy!<br><br>

Interesting article.<br>
The potential for abuse of the drug in athletes is HUGE of course. Another thing that distinguishes us from animals, the desire to win even if by cheating.

Interesting link, thanks Susan. In light of the current performance enhancing drugs in the baseball arena now, it almost gives me a headache seeing the potential for another one that can cause even more damage to our athletes. Larry

A pretty scary concept. Calcium channels are what causes the heart to beat, a very risky thing to toy with.<br><br>

What got me was that last line.........."....some people would run until they keeled over and died." I don't doubt that for a second.<br><br>
Frightening!

Thank you for the article Riley0003. When I first saw the post I was hoping to get some quick relief...After I started reading, my attitude changed. I'll just tough it out.

No kidding. Not to mention it's role in neurotransmission. In my more pessimistic moments I sometimes question whether those of us in the biomedical research area are always doing what is best when we publish our findings.

Figbash - are things as bad in Michigan as the press is portraying? I lived in Jackson for about 12 years when I was a kid and graduated from high school there and have a degree from U of M so have more then passing interest.

Things are pretty bad in Detroit and Flint because of all the automotive cutbacks. It's a great time to buy a house here but a lousy time to sell one. I work in bio-research (in Ann Arbor) so I haven't been affected. People always need good drugs. <img alt="wink.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif"><br><br>
