  Jose Canseco going from Steroids to HCG Smuggling

Jose Canseco steroidsJose Canseco is just non stop.  Jose Canseco gave up anabolic steroids, so he’s using HCG, but then again does he have a brain.  Why would he bring HCG over the border from Mexico when you’re on of the most recognize steroid users in the USA?  After Barry Bonds, Jose Canseco is probably the most notable figure in steroids and baseball.   So why is he brining PCT (post cycle therapy) drugs over the border? is he still using anabolic steroids? obviously he is.  Has he not heard of the internet? obviously NOT! he could have easily gotten HCG over the internet from a pharmacy delivered to his home.

What we cannot understand is why does Jose Canseco need to use anabolic steroids? does he not understant the mounting political and media pressure on him to be in the public light?  It’s obvious he doesn’t understand the consequences of steroid use in the public eye.  He would rather buy steroids over the border in mexico and bring them back, then use his brain and order anabolic steroids online.  It was very obvious that Jose Canseco was/is also using human growth hormone (HGH) and probably some IGF-1 or MGF.  It depends on how much he can smuggle over the border.

The realistic situation about Jose Canseco is not going to change, as he is arrogant.  Jose Canseco doesn’t think he can be touched after his book exposing so called steroid users in baseball and sports.  Jose Canseco forgets the criminal penalties in USA for steroid use, especially since he’s a big media figure – they will make an example of him.

llcoolj-steroidsThe question on everyone’s mind is: Does LL Cool J use anabolic steroids or HGH? did he ever used steroids? or does he look so awesome via magic – maybe Harry Potter used “Magicum Steroidal” spell on him? I guess not.  Reality says that LL Cool J obviously used anabolic steroids, he’s clearly on steroids and/or HGH.  The is probably using Winstrol, Anavar and some Primoblan.  He might be also using some human growth hormone (HGH).

Two persons were recently arrested and charged for possession of anabolic steroids in Stoughton, Ma. The arrests came after an investigation at Gold’s Gym at 525 Washington St. initiated by the State Police.

John Schifone, 25, of 8 Rayburn Road was arraigned on a summons Wednesday in Stoughton District Court on charges of distributing Class E drugs – steroids – and conspiracy to violate a drug law, according to a report by the Patriot Ledger.

Judge Richard Savignano has scheduled the pre-trial hearing on October 8 and set the bail at $1,000.

Dennis A. Melo, 22, of 896 Sumner St. is scheduled to be arraigned on a summons on October 14 for the same charges.

According to authorities, said arrests resulted from an investigation conducted in late August.

On August 28, Schifone was seen by the police approaching a vehicle at the Gold Gym’s parking area and receiving a black knapsack that was thrown to him by passenger in the vehicle.

Schifone then went inside the gym then later emerged with Melo. Schifone reportedly went straight to the passenger side of the parked vehicle and took a white plastic bag which he handed to Melo. When State Police officers retrieved the package from Melo they found three small boxes with 10-ml bottles of anabolic steroids.

Authorities said they seized from Schifone’s vehicle two additional 10-milliliter bottles of steroids, a syringe and pill bottles.

  Steroid dealer pleads guilty in Newark

According to a report by the Daily News, a New Jersey resident pleaded guilty to possession with intent to distribute anabolic steroids last Tuesday in a federal court in Newark.

Thirty-five-year old Anthony Scarpa reportedly manufactured steroids at his Sayreville home. He also pleaded guilty to an unlawful possession of firearms by a felon in court. Apparently, Scarpa has two previous felony convictions. Daily News provides the details on this news.

When Scarpa was arrested at his home on Sept. 20, 2007, according to a criminal complaint, FBI and DEA agents found “a substantial, active and ongoing laboratory used for the manufacturing of steroids.” Authorities say Scarpa, who lived in an upscale home on a quiet cul-de-sac, operated out of a basement filled with chemicals, tubs and vials. The agents found labeled and finished steroid products, raw steroid powders and a plastic receptacle containing more than 10,000 tablets of steroid products.

The agents also seized a .40-caliber Glock Model 23 semi-automatic pistol and a .40-caliber Springfield semi-automatic pistol.

Scarpa, who will be sentenced on Dec. 16, could be sentenced for up to five years in prison on the steroid count and 10 years for the firearms offense, said Robert Kirsch, the assistant United States attorney who prosecuted the case.

The now deceased David Jacobs had also operated his huge steroid production from his home in Plano, Texas. He had also owned a Glock .40 caliber automatic, which he used to kill himself after fatally shooting his on-again, off–again girlfriend on June 5, 2008. During the police investigation of the suicide-murder scene, authorities seized for Jacobs’ home 146 vials of steroids, a plastic jar containing suspected steroids, and three jars of clear liquid believed to contain steroids. Incidentally, Jacobs’ nickname was ‘Bulletproof’.

  Signature Pharmacy Steroid case thrown out

signature pharmacy steroids

So it seems the signature pharmacy steroid bust has come to an end.  As far as facts go, the pharmacy was doing everything legal, they had doctor prescriptions, they had phone consultations with doctors and they did help people who needed hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

Let’s hope this signature pharamcy case is a lead for the feds to leave steroids alone, because prosecuting steroids is not black and white anymore, and judges aren’t putting up with BS anymore as they used to.  Let’s hope that anabolic steroids will now go on the backburner of “drug” busts.  With probable budget cuts in the coming years due to huge deficits, let’s hope steroids are left alone to be underground as they have been for over 40 years.

A judge threw out criminal indictments against the central figures in a wide-ranging national steroids investigation on Thursday, citing a series of blunders and missteps by prosecutors for the Albany County district attorney, P. David Soares.

Mr. Soares’s investigation, which began three and a half years ago, has spanned at least four states and involved at least seven federal and state agencies. It has so far resulted in 17 guilty pleas from people who prosecutors alleged were involved in distributing steroids and other performance enhancers to thousands of customers around the country, including sports stars and other celebrities.

But Judge Stephen W. Herrick, of Albany County Court, found that mistakes by the prosecution had prejudiced the case against five people associated with Florida-based Signature Pharmacy, which prosecutors had alleged was the supplier of at least $10 million worth of controlled substances sold to customers in New York. They are Naomi Loomis and Robert Loomis, the husband and wife who own the pharmacy; Mr. Loomis’s brother, Kenneth Michael Loomis, a pharmacist at the company; and two former employees, Kirk Calvert and Tony Palladino.

  Boosting and steroids – IPC is busy keeping an eye on violators

Posted By

Cheats will always find ways to gain unfair advantage. So far, four athletes have been tested positive for steroids and other banned compounds at the Beijing Paralympics but it looks like the International Paralympic Committee has one more problem to contend with other than the use of performance-enhancing drugs. Read on to know more about this other problem.

Athletes without disabilities have only steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs to use to gain competitive edge. Paraplegic athletes can go through two avenues – chemicals or voluntary autonomic dysreflexia, otherwise known as boosting. Reuters reports on this almost macabre method:

Self-flagellation, mutilation, bladder constriction — welcome to the world of the Paralympic cheat who reaches for a belt or a sharp object rather than a banned substance to gain an edge in elite competition.

The grisly practice of voluntary autonomic dysreflexia — commonly known as boosting — involves disabled athletes beating, stabbing and strapping parts of the body to provoke an adrenalin rush that might improve their performance by up to 25 percent, or failing that, kill them.

“We are talking about headaches, gooseflesh, brain damage, arterial disruption…there have even been cases of athletes passing away,” said Peter Van de Vliet, medical and scientific director of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC).

While generally not regarded as a widespread problem, adherents were found in all sports that catered to athletes whose disabilities precluded a circular central nervous response, said Van de Vliet, such as those with spinal cord injuries.

In essence, athletes who could harm parts of their bodies without feeling pain.

“Typically athletes can induce this through strapping or clamping the bladder or sitting on something sharp because we know that pain stimuli can induce a similar reaction on the…nervous system.

“We find these athletes in table tennis in severe (disability) classes, swimming, in wheelchair racing, they are in cycling.”

The IPC is on the lookout of this illicit practice since it provides unfair advantage as well as health risks to athletes. However, testing for it is proving to be more problematic compared to conventional doping cases, such as the use of anabolic steroids. One way to test for boosting is through high blood pressure readings and IPC officials know they still need to find other testing methods to detect violators.

Autonomic dysreflexia occurs when the blood pressure of an individual with a spinal cord injury becomes excessively high due to the overactivity of Autonomic Nervous System. The overactivity may be caused by painful stimuli, such as those mentioned in the article above. The most common symptoms of this condition are sweating, pounding headache, tingling sensation on the face and neck, blotchy skin around the neck and goose bumps. However, these symptoms may not appear simultaneously and their severity varies.

The Reuters article says that money could be the motivating factor for athletes to commit this act as financial incentives, in the form of government funding and corporate sponsorships, await triumphant athletes.

“There are certainly more incentives for Paralympic athletes these days,” said Canadian Sarah Hunter, a professional wheelchair tennis player. Hunter has been tested at least 10 times this year. “The stakes are definitely higher,” Hunter added.

  Two more failed steroid tests at Beijing Paralympics

As promised, we’ll keep you posted on the ongoing Paralympic Games in Beijing. So far, we’ve only reported two Paralympic athletes who were kicked out of the Games because they tested positive for steroids.

Now, we’re going to add two more to that statistics as two powerlifters have been banned for failing doping tests. The two Paralympians who both received two-year ban are Facourou Sissoko of Mali and Liudmyla Osmanova of Ukraine. The two gave positive tests for anabolic steroids in out-of-competition tests, according to the International Paralympic Committee on Thursday.

Sissoko’s urine sample on September 6 tested positive for boldenone metabolites. Osmanova’s sample on August 29 yielded 19-Norandrosterone, a metabolite of anabolic steroid nandrolone. The IPC stated that it had implemented 461 tests to date for the ongoing Paralympic Games and it intends to carry out around 1,000 screenings before the Games end on September 17.

Earlier doping incidents at the Paralympics involved Pakistani powerlifter Naveed Ahmed Butt and German wheelchair basketballer Ahmet Coskun.

Butt’s urine sample tested positive for methandienone. The sample was taken September 4 just tow days before the opening ceremony. Coskun, meanwhile, was banned from the games because his pre-competition urine test resulted to a positive test for a masking agent. Coskun’s sample taken on August 23 tested positive for finasteride, a legitimate drug that is used in the treatment of male pattern baldness. The drug, however, is included in the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Prohibited List since it is typically used  by anabolic steroid users to cover up drugs that enhance athletic performance.

The IPC’s official website states the following relating to their anti-doping program:
“Anti-doping programmes seek to preserve what is intrinsically valuable about sport – “The spirit of sport”. Thus, the rationale for doping control in sport is twofold: first, to protect athletes from the potential harmful side effects that some drugs can produce; and second, to ensure fair and ethical competition by preventing athletes from taking prohibited substances or using prohibited methods in an attempt to increase performance or violating the spirit of sport.”

According to IPC’s Anti-Doping Code, doping is defined as the occurrence of one or two of the following anti-doping rule violations:

•    the presence of a prohibited substance in an athlete’s bodily specimen
•    use or attempted use of a prohibited substance or a prohibited method
•    refusing or failing to submit to sample collection after notification
•    violation of the requirements regarding athlete availability for out-of-competition testing
•    tampering with any part of doping control
•    possession of prohibited substances and methods
•    trafficking in any prohibited substance or prohibited method
•    administration or attempted administration of a prohibited substance or prohibited method to any athlete, or assisting, encouraging, aiding, abetting, covering up or any other type of complicity involving an anti-doping rule violation or any attempted violation.

  NFL’s 89th season – new rules, new steroid stories, and new team for good old Favre

Since football is back, let’s talk about the highlights and sidelights of the NFL’s 89th season so far.

There is, of course, the retirement and unretirement of Brett Favre, which lent some melodrama to the usually action-packed league. Favre is now with the New York Jets. Then there are the new NFL rules for 2008, one of which is the use of instant replays to correct onfield officiating errors.

And there are the season-opening suspensions, which included New York Jets’ running back Jesse Chatman due to reported steroid use. He received a four-game suspension without pay for the infringement.  This incident prompted many to ask: “How is it that Chatman got suspended while Ryan Fowler is left unscathed for violation of NFL’s policy regarding anabolic steroids and related substances?”

We reported just last month that Fowler was relieved that the league did not pursue his case of alleged use of steroids. He said NFL had initially scheduled a hearing regarding the case, but the meeting did not materialize. Did the NFL forget about it or did it decide not to pursue the case anymore? Lucky for Fowler, bad fate for Chatman.

Fowler, a linebacker for Tennessee, was implicated by the now deceased David Jacobs, the reported Texas-based steroid dealer to several NFL players.  Jacobs told The Dallas Morning News before he committed the murder-suicide case in June that he had supplied Fowler with drugs before and after the 2006 season and Jacobs also provided the NFL names of players who bought steroids from him. The list of names included Fowler and former Dallas lineman Matt Lehr.

NFL sent Fowler a letter that same month stating he faced an investigation and possible suspension. Now that the said investigation did not push through Fowler considers the case closed.

Testosterone Propionate is the shortest estered testosterone preparation available on the market currently. It does everything you’d expect from testosterone, but anecdotally seems to promote less water retention than longer estered versions of the product.  Read  more about Testosterone Propionate

Trenbolone Video

Trenbolone is a 19-nor derived steroid, in the 19-nor Testosterone (Nandrolone) family. In fact, Trenbolone is structurally similar to Deca-Durabolin, differing in the fact that it has a c-9 and c-11 double bond. The c9 bond serves to prevent any aromatization (conversion) to estrogen, and thus we see far less water retention with Trenbolone when we compare it to Deca Durabolin. Unlike nandrolone however The c11 double bond also seems to increase Androgen Receptor binding quite profoundly (this may also have something to do with the c9 bond as well). This lack of estrogenic activity and powerful ability to bind to the androgen receptor combine to make Trenbolone a much more powerful androgen than Deca, however. Read more about Trenbolone
