Stop Congress From Making Another Supplement Illegal:
Ask your Senators and Representative to oppose S. 1137 and any companion House
On May 26, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) introduced a bill that would ban DHEA,
a vital dietary supplement that provides many important health benefits. Last
year the government banned prohormone and ephedra supplements, and they won't

suggest DHEA may be helpful for such conditions as obesity, cancer, and
Alzheimer's disease. DHEA dietary supplements, which have been on the market for
more than 20 years, are derived from a plant in the wild yam family.
This legislation claims to prevent abuse of steroids by athletes. However, DHEA,
unlike androstenedione and other hormone precursors closer to testosterone , does
not have a marked effect in building muscle or enhancing performance.
Researchers at Harvard University conducted surveys of weightlifters and other
athletes and found that DHEA is rarely - if ever - used by athletes for

I believe these guys are jumping on the bandwagon to draw attention to their lackluster selves. Whats prolly more scary is the pork that they hide in these bills and proposals usually designed to only help themselves and friends.
