Congress questions steroids testimonyAccording to a report by the New York Times, MLB and Union officials may have misled the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform in regard to the amount of steroid use among players.

Any wrongdoings were denied by both deputy commissioner Rob Manfred and the union’s general counsel, Michael Weiner.

Low dose contraceptive pill controls severe premenstrual disorderAccording to a recently concluded study, low doses of oral contraceptive demonstrate as much efficacy as the present-day standard treatment for premenstrual syndrome, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).

Kimberly Yonkers, M.D., associate professor in the departments of Psychiatry and Epidemiology and Public Health and lead author of the study remarked that PMDD patients often experience cyclical mood, behavioral, and physical symptoms that are triggered possibly by changes in steroid hormone levels.

Yale School of Medicine researchers said that a low dose oral contraceptive with a unique progestin and dosing regimen shows efficacy to treat PMDD along with suppression of the ovarian activity.

AFL drugs policy should guard the sickThe illicit drugs policy of AFL, which was introduced in 2005, stressed upon the confidentiality factor to avoid risking the health and rehabilitation chances of a player. However, it failed to serve its vision after Travis Tuck of Hawthorn was named, fined and suspended.

Posted By

For Jim Thome, nothing adds up to a ringJim Thome, known in the baseball circles as a man who swings ferociously and built like a mountain, recently moved past Rafael Palmeiro on the career list with his 585 career home run.

At 40, Thome may have lost the charm a bit but has not lost the aspiration to climb the ladder of 600 career home runs for no player has ever retired so close to 600 home runs.

In the past, the game of baseball was manly when pitchers used to knock batters down for the smallest of all perceived imperfections yet the golden age of batters began about 1993.

Today, HBP numbers are falling along with decline in home run totals and some think that only a change in the strike zone would reduce the H.B.P. averages to their historical norms.
