Well thank for sharing your information with everyone. It would be interesting to know that these "thresholds" were approximately (since they vary by person) and if the side effects of steroids are any more likely to occur than extended use of many other drugs, prescription or not. We already KNOW alcohol and tobacco have the definite potential to kill when used for extended periods and in sufficient amounts. Yet no one really makes an effort to ban those substances for their long term health dangers.
I totally agree that steroids used in ABUSIVE amounts over many years are likely to cause health issues but so can drinking, smoking, meth, coke, sleeping pills, pain killers, etc. Even aspirin can cause death when taken in sufficient amounts! (OMG, aspirin MUST be banned!). I just personally feel steroids get a bad rap because people have associated deaths of bodybuilders to their use, mental lapses of certain athletes, etc., JUST BECAUSE they are bigger and more muscular than the average person. There are no studies that prove this. There are even no studies of bodybuilders that use for years and compete at a high level of any health issues soley attributed to their use of AAS. Sure Arnold my have heart and kidney problems and MAYBE (and most likely) they are from his years of steroid use but we don't KNOW this. How will we ever since they are considered controlled substances and thereby eliminate the possibility of doing any long term studies because they would be illegal to administer or illegal for subjects to admit using.
Don't get me wrong, I don't advocate the use of any of these things but we shouldn't vilify people who choose to use them nor judge them for it simply because we believe they cause problems due to an observation that is made simply based on the fact they are more muscular than most of us so therefore it must be the steroids. Last time I checked, the likes of Franco Columbo, Frank Zane, Bob Paris, Sergio Olivia, Lou Ferrigno, Gary Strydom, Matt Mendenhall and many other body builders from the 70's and 80's are still alive and well with no health issues at all.
Sorry for the rant but if the OP wants to try Hemotest he should have the right to because it's his body and there is nothing to PROVE that Hemotest will harm him in any way. I'll get off my soapbox now
