supersoldier serum in trials - anybody can be Captain America

78% strength increase seen in monkeys with no side effects. Damn, If I were the US military or the NFL or NBA, I would support this research.

Now if they could just get this in pill form

Using gene therapy, NCH scientists have been able to get follistatin (a myostatin blocker) to promote phenomenal muscle growth in macaque monkeys. NCH is now working with the FDA to perform the preliminary steps necessary for a human clinical trial. Is this the prelude to a super-strength gene therapy for all of us?"

Myostatin acts to control muscle growth. Block it and muscles gorow. This pumped up looking cow is a breed called the Belgian Blue. Very lean meat. No fat, all muscle. It has a mutation in the myostatin gene. The cow is just standing there stuffing its face with food and it gets batsuit type muscles. No need for weightlifting!!
