“Sixty-five percent of creatine sold today is contaminated with steroids,” Faught said as he tried to emphasize to the students that using such supplements could be dangerous. He referred to nsfsport.con as a Web site that “lets you know what’s safe and what’s not.”
( I’m sure his comments will boost sales of creatine by those looking for free steroids )
As for anabolic steroids, he said the biggest danger there is “you don’t even know what exactly it is you’re taking.” He said a summary of 217 studies of the chemical makeup of illegal anabolic steroids shows that 30 percent did not contain what was on the label, and that 40 percent of the time the listed dosages were wrong.
Faught also addressed the question of who is using APEDs. He said of 1 million teenagers that admitted to using anabolic steroids, half were not even athletes.
“The fastest growing group of users is 14 and 15-year-old girls,” Faught said. “More than 1 in 20 high school girls already use anabolic steroids, and that number continues to increase.
“The No. 1 reason is to improve the way they look and feel about themselves.”
( Not sure why the average high school girl would think that acne and increased facial hair growth would make them look and feel better wouldn’t diet drugs be their logical choice. )
