Anabolic-Androgenic Steroid Precursors Were Sold As Dietary Supplements
President George Bush signs the “Anabolic Steroid Control Act of 2004” on Friday, October 22, 2004
“Andro, which is banned in the NFL and other sports but not in baseball, was used by McGwire during the 1998 season when he hit 70 home runs, breaking the single-season record owned by Roger Maris. Andro sales quadrupled after his admission, with teenagers making up many of those consumers.”
Tom Farrey, Senators Want Over-the-Counter Andro Ban, ESPN, Oct 24, 2003http://espn.go.com/gen/news/2003/1024/1645745.html
“Androstenedione is one of the strongest, most
potent legal testosterone boosters, capable of raising
testosterone levels up to 600%.
The results of Andro do not compare to Dianabol,
but is much safer for teenagers.
It is also half as cheap as Dianabol.”
