Laziness genes discovered by researchers
April 10, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- If you are a couch potato, you might have a legitimate excuse.
Research from the University of Missouri shows there may be a gene for laziness. They studied which rats ran on a running wheel and which ones just sat there.
The rats' actions changed when their DNA was altered.
Researchers say they discovered 36 genes which might make humans predisposed to being lazy.
