Check out the percentages released recently by the IOC and the uksport on the levels of contamination of illegal substances found in off the shelf supplements. As a whole there was a 15% average contamination rate in all the substances tested worldwide. The US had a higher rate of 18.8% with a number of 45 tainted products found of the 240 tested. Not a good ratio. Nanladrone, an anabolic, was a common finding in many supplements. Here is one real good reason to steer clear of your local GNC. Got dope?
The full results of the IOC research are as follows:

(Key: Country/No. of products tested/No. of 'positive'
results/Percentage 'positives')

1. Netherlands 31 / 8 / 25.8%
2. Austria 22 / 5 / 22.7%
3. UK 37 / 7 / 18.9%
4. USA 240 / 45 / 18.8%
5. Italy 35 / 5 / 14.3%
6. Spain 29 / 4 / 13.8%
7. Germany 129 / 15 / 11.6%
8. Belgium 30 / 2 / 6.7%
9. France 30 / 2 / 6.7%
10. Norway 30 / 1 / 3.3%
11. Switzerland 13 / 0 / 0%
12. Sweden 6 / 0 / 0%
13. Hungary 2 / 0 / 0%
Total: 634 / 94 / 14.8%

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind in case they start testing for banned substances at my Cat. 3 races.

Nandrolone is not orally active. However, it can be a contaminant, could mess up your drug evaluation. Because the Perhydrocyclopentanophenanthrene ring is the common structure of even cholesterol and many fatty materials, it can be a problem. Hated to use such a big word.

That is most likely the biggest, nastiest word I've seen in the last... 30 minutes or so.

I gave my girlfriend a Perhydrocyclopentanophenanthrene ring one time. Told her it was a diamond. She's not my girlfriend anymore.
Now she's your boyfriend! : ) nmCrankist
