Irish Medicine Board concerned about their citizen’s health safety  The Irish Medicine Board (IMB) is worried because a small number of Irish consumers may have bought products distributed at www.Bodybuilding.com. The agency has issued a warning regarding the dietary supplements that contained synthetic steroids.

According to IMB, anyone who is currently using the product must immediately discontinue its use. If there are any concerns or health problems arising, immediately contact your physician. Those who have extra supplies of the dietary supplements must store the products in a safe place away from children. Even suppliers were asked by IMB to contact their customers.

IMB Chief executive Pat O’Mahony said that using these steroid-containing supplements might result in adverse effects such as acute liver damage, increase risk of heart disease and strokes.

IMB has already contacted the US FDA regarding this concern. Both IMB and FDA’s concern is that the dietary supplements may contain some forms of steroids such as superdrol, madol, tren, androstenedione and turinabol.

According to bodybuilding.com, the voluntary national and international recall of their products was not due to confirmation of FDA’s concerns. Rather, it is more of a precautionary measure on their part.

O’Mahony further added that certain precautions must be exercised when purchasing products online because it may be potentially dangerous to your health.

J.C. Romero filed Lawsuit against Supplement Makers over His Positive TestJ.C. Romero, the Philadelphia Phillies star who was suspended for steroid abuse last August, has taken legal action against the makers and distributors of nutritional supplements. The star pitcher alleged that they are responsible for his positive test.

Romero filed a 27-page lawsuit on Monday in New Jersey Superior Court in Camden County. In the lawsuit, he blamed the product 6-OXO Extreme for traces of androstenedione found in his urine on Aug. 26, 2008. The lawsuit also includes various other counts, including negligence, intentional misrepresentation and consumer fraud.

GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, Ergopharm and Proviant Technologies are the four defendants named under the lawsuit. Among these, the latter two companies are owned and operated by Patrick Arnold, an Illinois-based chemist who is in federal prison for having role in the BALCO affair. When asked about the lawsuit, Arnold did not give any statement.

Romero said, “I purchased an over-the-counter supplement that I was told and believed would not cause me to test positive.” “These events have hurt me deeply and placed a cloud over my career, accomplishments and family. It is my hope that I can finally start to put this event behind me and protect the interests of others who rely on manufacturers and retailers to be honest about their products.”

From New York Daily News:

Suspended Phillies reliever J.C. Romero is suing the makers and distributors of nutritional supplements that he says are responsible for his positive steroid test last August.

The 27-page lawsuit, filed Monday in New Jersey Superior Court in Camden County, blames the product 6-OXO Extreme for traces of androstenedione found in the pitcher’s urine on Aug. 26, 2008.

The numerous counts in the lawsuit include negligence, intentional misrepresentation and consumer fraud. The four defendants named are GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, Ergopharm and Proviant Technologies.

The star Phillies pitcher was tested positive for androstenedione on Aug. 26, 2008 and received a 50-game suspension order, which was not made public until January of this year. MLB announced his ban later in January. Despite of his suspension, Romero was allowed to work out with the Phillies in spring training session and in pregame practices without being paid.

Gary Wadler, a New York internist affiliated with the World Anti-Doping Agency stated that Romero situation had highlighted a well-known problem with the under-regulated supplement industry.

tony_larussa-steroidsMark David McGwire had his shot at becoming part of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Unfortunately, this dream was shattered when a fellow teammate, Jose Canseco, claimed that he had personally injected McGwire with anabolic steroids. Although McGwire was not named by The Mitchell Report, the accusation has caused his name a lot of damage. McGwire did admit to taking androstenedione which is a steroid-precursor and is a legal over-the-counter performance enhancer. McGwire has been artfully dodging questions about his steroid use even when he was under oath. This has puzzled many fans and critics alike. Some stay at McGwire’s side, however, like his manager, Tony La Russa.
