Exercise changing your DNA?

Posted:

(CNN)--Working out just doesn't burn calories, a new study says it can also change your DNA.

 According to Time Magazine, researchers at a Swedish medical university found that just a 20-minute workout for healthy adults who don't normally exercise can change the D-N-A molecules in muscles -- making them more efficient.

 The underlying genetic code stays the same.

 The study was conducted on 14 young men and women using an exercise bike. It was published in the journal Cell Metabolism.
