Researchers say a simple blood test could one day determine whether exercise is the best weight loss option for any particular person. University of New Brunswick kinesiology professor Martin Senechal (SEN-eh-Shawl) has begun a study on a recently discovered hormone that is released by muscles during exercise. He says irisin (EYE-riss-in) increases the amount of calories that are burned and also helps control blood sugar levels. He says you can't just tell people to exercise and expect them all to lose weight. (Senechal says 30 people who carry extra bodyweight will be studied while they exercise. He hopes to complete the study by the end of the year.)
