    Rebuttal to Chuck "the steroid guru" Hirschberg's article

    http://www.t-mag.com/nation_articles/304reb.jsp

    Not the greatest article ever written, but he makes some points.

    He does seem to imply Alzado's brain tumor was a result of using GH, which is ridiculous. If anything at all, it may have speed up a pre-existing tumor.

    well the GH may have been responsible for increasing the growth of the tumor, but not so sure about causing it.

    Don't forget Alzado used HGH from cadavers, which caused lots of problems that's why it's not produced anymore.

    Yeah, but the problem with that was they weren't aware of what prions were at the time. There was potential to contract KJ, mad cow-like disease and things of the sort, although very rare. The main reason they don't get GH that way anymore is because it's so much more practical and cost-efficient to grow up bacteria in bulk and purify it.

    Bro according to the DEA, FDA and The Medical Association steroids should of never been scheduled. The guidelines for scheduling are not meet by steroids but congress scheduled them anyway. Those 3 groups testified before congress against scheduling gear. So basically congress said forget the guidelines let do it anyway, we know more then the DEA, FDA and a bunch of Doctors.

    It was kind of a joke to see all of the things that were ahead of AAS on the list. It makes this whole "war on steroids " such a joke. Even considering all the stupid things you hear about people doing on these boards.....
    That's not to say they aren't potentially dangerous, but....

    Now the damage is done...it'll be almost impossible to reverse their decision. Stigmatized forever w/o any real reason.
