Doping And Organized Crime Too Big To Control

A new trans-national body is required to combat wide-ranging corruption and the levels of doping in sport are now worse than ever, according to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

The world anti-doping body also expressed fears that athletics will follow cycling in uncovering a serious culture of cheating. In the recent past, the revelations emerging from the Operation Puerto trial and the Australian Crime Commission investigation into organized crime and drugs have brought a bad reputation for sports and WADA director general David Howman has admitted the problem is getting “bigger and more serious” and is “getting too big for sport to manage”. Howman issued a plea for a new “sports integrity unit” with WADA a part of it and remarked that this unit would take responsibility to combat match-fixing, doping, corrupt betting, and other forms of cheating that are increasingly associated with organized crime. The WADA director general said the integrity unit with liaise with law enforcement agencies around the world.

Howman added that the influx of money into global sports in the last decade had attracted the criminal underworld and potential for match-fixing.

Many senior officials of anti-doping bodies have expressed concerns that the tentacles of organized crime are deeply embedded in sport in such a way that it is “inevitable” that other sports may face serious problems on the lines of cycling and this fear was underlined by Howman and the UK Anti-Doping chief executive, Andy Parkinson, both saying the issues identified by the Australian Crime Commission were as prevalent in the UK and elsewhere. The ACC report shocked Australia by claiming that “widespread use” of banned performance enhancing drugs is rampant in a number of professional sports and the same was facilitated by sports scientists and coaches and existed at a level “significantly higher” than recorded in official statistics.

The problems associated with doping in sports does not end here. Many global sport federations are not doing enough to combat doping while some fail often to test enough blood samples. An exasperated Howman said WADA spend all the money and put everything in place but finds that people would not do it unless the world anti-doping agency makes something mandatory.

Meanwhile, WADA president John Fahey called on other professional team sports to follow on the lines of baseball and ensure that their players are targeted for testing four times a season and added that some professional footballers could go through their entire career without being tested. In the recent times, the spotlight has started to fall on other sports that are not considered to test frequently and sufficiently for blood doping, such as football and tennis and WADA director general said he was encouraged by the fact that the leading tennis players in the world were now calling for more testing.

The number of adverse or atypical findings across sport is just under 2 percent while the estimates of the prevalence of blood doping averaged 14 percent according to a study of blood samples collected after the Daegu World Athletics Championships in 2011.

In the world of health and fitness, especially professional sports, Clenbuterol is regularly used by those in body building and strength athletics because of its steroid-like results. This body weight and fat reduction medication, generally known as Clen, is regularly used to burn stored fat and improve muscle size and body strength.

The adrenergic agonist has the capability to activate the neurological system and improve the blood pressure level of the human body besides improving cardio exercise capacity and capability of the body to transport fresh oxygen.

By promoting the stimulation of the beta-2 receptors, Clenbuterol enables loss of fat as these receptors are known to be useful in burning fat and releasing more of fat that is stored. It is for these and many more factors that sportsmen, especially those doing bodyweight groups, use Clen to obtain a “cut” appearance by attaining lower body fat levels. By increasing the amount at which fat is digested, Clenbuterol allows in promoting fast fat reduction and development of muscles at the same time. It works in the same way to caffeinated drinks and ephedrine but it last longer and therefore described as a very effective substance.

One of the biggest advantages associated with the use of Clenbuterol is that it does not lead to androgenic side effects like steroids and performance enhancing drugs. This also indicates that individuals making use of this medication do not require antiestrogens such as Clomid and Nolvadex as Clen use is not associated with greasy skin, acne, and stomach ache. It is also beneficial to note here that this drug is absorbed at a rate of 70 to 80 percent and remains in the body for 39 hours.

All these benefits encourage individuals, especially sportsmen, who want to be sleek and attractive to make use of Clenbuterol, the weight and fat loss medication, which can be used by both men and women. The fact that use of this medication for a period of six to eight weeks is very successful and fulfilling in quick weight-loss and promotion of muscle mass gains indicates that individuals using it have limitless factors to appreciate it.

Clenbuterol also provides sleek muscular relaxant qualities and has the capability to raise pulse level, body temperature, and blood pressure that are incredibly useful in reducing bodyweight quickly. The weight-loss medication is popular among girls and women as it helps them reduce extra body fat without the androgenic results of most steroids.

The world of professional sports does not provide endless opportunities to sportsmen and this is the reason why they need to deliver as and when asked and this “invincibility” is more or less accomplished by those into sports by using performance enhancing drugs such as Masteron enanthate.

Having an anabolic androgenic ratio of 62:25 and an active life of nearly 8 days, Masteron enanthate (also known as Drostanolone enanthate) is best used in doses of 400-600 mg per week by men and 100 mg per week by women. It has the molecular weight of 360.5356 g/mol at the base and can be detected over a period of three months. The anabolic steroid is commonly stacked with long estered cutting cycle steroids such as Trenbolone Enanthate, Clenbuterol, Ephedrine, T3, growth hormone, IGF, and Testosterone.

This steroid is commonly made the part of a pre-contest or an off-season program for adding new muscles while retaining existing muscles. The derivative of DHT (dihydrotestosterone), Masteron enanthate does not convert to estrogen and has the potential to inhibit blocking the conversion of free testosterone to estrogen by aromatization pathway besides enhancing the active free testosterone levels in the circulation. In addition to these advantages, Drostanolone enanthate is also admired for negating the side effects of estrogens and promoting fine muscle details being accentuated like striations. Furthermore, Masteron enanthate is also beneficial to draw out water from between the skin and the muscle to result in a very cut look at low body fat levels.

Last but not the least, Masteron enanthate is a potent anabolic steroid and must be used for legal purposes and under strict medical regulation.

In the world of professional sports, Fareston, which is also known as Toremifene Citrate, is considered to be a powerful antiestrogen that is used at the end of a steroid cycle, especially when aromatizable steroids are used. The apparent improved safety and ease of use of Fareston is what makes it an excellent choice for sportsmen on steroids.

The chemical name of toremifene is: 2-{p-[(Z)-4-chloro-1,2diphenyl-1-butenyl]phenoxy}-N,N-dimethylethylamine citrate (1:1). The molecular weight of toremifene citrate is 598.10 and its molecular formula is C26H28ClNO • C6H8O7. Tablets of Fareston has toremifene citrate as the active ingredient and the list of inactive ingredients includes colloidal silicon dioxide, lactose, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, povidone, sodium starch glycolate, and starch.

The non-steroidal antiestrogen works by inhibiting the activity of estrogens and is often recommended by medical practitioners to women with breast cancer. It is medically recommended for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer in postmenopausal women with estrogen-receptor positive or unknown tumors.

In the world of steroid-dominated sports, Fareston is used as part of a strong post cycle therapy regimen and is considered to be a better option than Clomid and Nolvadex. Having an active life of 5-7 days, the selective estrogen receptor modulator helps steroid users stay away from side effects of estrogens such as oily skin, acne, bloating, and gynecomastia. The best thing about Fareston-Toremifene Citrate is that it does not eliminate the estrogen or disallow the conversion to occur but makes an attempt to counteract the effects of circulating estrogen in the body in tissues affected by the drug.

In addition to these benefits, Fareston is also useful in increasing the production of luteinizing hormone and follicle stimulating hormone, and thereby increasing the level of testosterone. Moreover, the use of Fareston is associated with support to HDL synthesis and LDL cholesterol reductions besides having positive effects on the regulation of serum cholesterol.

The recommended dose of Fareston when taken orally is 60 mg every day. This drug should not be abused as it can lead to side effects, including nausea and vomiting, fatigue, thrombophlebitis, depression, lethargy, anorexia, ischemic attack, arthritis, pulmonary embolism, and myocardial infarction.

Fareston is required to be stored at a controlled room temperature of 25°C (77°F) with excursions permitted to 15-30°C (59-86°F). It should be protected from heat, light, moisture, pets, children, and sources of ignition.

In the segment of professional sports, Aromasin is an admired antiestrogen for controlling or preventing excess estrogen formation, especially toward the end of a steroid cycle. Sportsmen on anabolic steroids use Aromasin, also known as LiquiAroma, to stay protected against estrogenic side effects such as oily skin and gynecomastia.

Chemically designated as 6-methylenandrosta-1,4-diene-3,17-dione, Aromasin has an active life of 24-40 hours and the molecular formula of C20H24O2. The active ingredient in Aromasin tablets is exemestane, which is an irreversible and steroidal aromatase inactivator while the list of inactive ingredients include mannitol, crospovidone, polysorbate 80, hypromellose, colloidal silicon dioxide, microcrystalline cellulose, sodium starch glycolate, magnesium stearate, simethicone, polyethylene glycol 6000, sucrose, magnesium carbonate, titanium dioxide, methylparaben, and polyvinyl alcohol.

This third generation aromatase inhibitor (AI) has the ability to reduce estrogen production by inhibiting the aromatase enzyme, which is responsible for estrogen synthesization. In addition to this, Aromasin use is related to dramatic improvements in the levels of lipid profiles and bone mineral content. The fact that this antiestrogen can reduce estrogen production by 98 percent is enough proof for its efficacy, which is unmatched.

Furthermore, Aromasin use reduces the level of SHBG (sex hormone binding globulin) to improve testosterone levels of the body besides making other steroids (parts of the steroid cycle) bio-available. One of the best things about this drug is that its use does not result in liver toxicity and is second to none in improving IGF-1 and optimizing benefits of steroids during a steroid cycle besides stimulating powerful bloat-reduction effects. When used in daily doses of 25 mg for three to four weeks, Aromasin demonstrates its true potential. It should be stored at a controlled temperature of 25°C (77°F) with excursions permitted to 15°–30°C (59°–86°F).

UFC fighter Sean McCorkle, who has always been known for his blunt honesty, recently remarked he would level the playing field by doing away with drug testing completely.

McCorkle made the remark after former Strikeforce light-heavyweight Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal tested positive for steroids and the UFC announced the implementation of a performance-enhancing drugs screening for all new fighters about to sign a contract with the promotion.

“There’s stuff at [nutrition store] GNC that will make you pee hot for a PED, and it’s not necessarily something that’s going to enhance your performance at all,” McCorkle said. “It’s just something that’s banned.”

If you are looking for a highly potent performance enhancing drug, IGF-1 or Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 is the best drug for you. This is not just because IGF-1 is extremely useful to promote balanced growth and development of muscle, liver, kidney, skin tissue, lungs, cartilage, bone, and nerves but also because it is second to none to improve healing, muscularity, and recovery time associated with intense workouts.

One of the biggest advantages associated with IGF-1 is that it prevents insulin from transporting glucose across the cell membranes. Sportsmen admire Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 because it helps them bridge between steroid cycles and is undetectable by both blood and urine tests as injectable IGF-1 never enters the bloodstream. In addition to these benefits, it is extremely beneficial for preventing signs of aging such as wrinkles and promoting new tissue growth and improving the level of sexual performance. IGF-1 is also useful in reducing body fat and promoting lean muscle mass and is medically prescribed to individuals suffering from stunted growth and deficiency of growth hormone.

In the world of professional sports, IGF-1 is also admired for its unique ability to promote the sense of well being, reducing breakdown of proteins, and improving transportation of protein into cells. The performance enhancing drug is also associated with dramatic improvements in the context of white blood cell production and reducing the level of LDL (bad) cholesterol besides facilitating dramatic enhancements in terms of muscle fibers, hyperplasia, nerve tissue repair, and providing significant relief to burn victims and individuals afflicted with AIDS wasting.

The recommended dose of IGF-1 is 20-120 mcg per day, with or without meals. It should be used for a period of fifty days and its use can be reinitiated after a gap of twenty to forty days. IGF-1 is not recommended for lactating and pregnant women and its abuse can lead to side effects such as oily skin and fatigue. IGF-1 must be stored at a controlled room temperature of 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F) with excursions permitted to 15° to 30°C (59° to 86°F) for protecting its shelf life.

If loss of hair has became your biggest problem after using harsh or aromatizable anabolic steroids and performance enhancing drugs, Dutasteride can help you in more than just a way.

Considered by many as one of the most trusted names in the world of professional sports, Dutasteride (also known as Avodart, Avidart, Avolve, Duagen, Dutas, Dutagen, and Duprost) is second to none when it comes to minimizing the natural production of Dihydrotestosterone (DHT). One of the best things about this 5α-reductase inhibitor is that it breaks down testosterone that may have got possibly converted into DHT by interfering with the 5-alpha-reductase enzymes.

The molecular weight of Dutasteride is 528.5 g/mol at the base and its chemical name is (5α,17β-N-{2,5 bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl}-3-oxo-4-azaandrost-1-ene-17-carboxamide; the molecular formula of Dutasteride is C27H30F6N2O2. Tablets of Dutasteride contain gelatin, glycerin, and ferric oxide as the inactive ingredient while the active ingredient is dissolved in a mix of butylated hydroxytoluene and mono-di-glycerides of caprylic/capric acid.

Medically, Dutasteride is prescribed by medical practitioners across the world to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH- non-cancerous enlargement of the prostate glands) in men with enlarged prostate and manage acute urinary retention (AUR). It is extremely useful in relieving symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia such as difficulty in beginning the flow of urine, the need to urinate frequently or urgently (including during the middle of the night), and weak stream.

The recommended dose of Dutasteride is 0.5 mg capsule orally every day, with or without meals. Dutasteride abuse can lead to side effects such as decreased sexual interest or ability, decrease in the amount of semen or sperm, breast tenderness, increased breast size, severe dizziness, trouble breathing, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), and rash. Dutasteride should not be used by children and women (especially those who are pregnant or may be pregnant) and users of this drug should not donate blood until at least six months after Dutasteride was last used as it can lead to possible administration of Dutasteride-tainted blood to pregnant female transfusion patient. This drug is not to be used by men with liver problems.

In today’s cutthroat world of professional sports, second chances do not happen and this is the reason why sportsmen want to excel at the first attempt itself with Turinabol, the best anabolic steroid and performance enhancing drug.

Also known as Tbol, Turinabol is a potent anabolic steroid that is admired by sportsmen across the world for its unique benefits. The steroid not only promotes muscle mass, fiber size, protein synthesis, and performance but gains attained with it are nearly permanent. Moreover, dramatic results are visible after Turinabol use in just four to six weeks.

The chemical name of Turinabol is [4-chloro-17b-hydroxy-17a-methyl-androst-1,4-dien-3-one] and it has the molecular formula of C20H27OCl. Available in oral and injectable forms, Tbol can be purchased online with or without a medical prescription. Medically, this anabolic steroid is used to trigger ovulation and promoting HPTA (hypothalamohypophysial testicular axis) and stimulating hypophysis to release more of gonadotropin, which further leads to more of FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) and LH (luteinizing hormone). These gains result in dramatic improvements in the production level of naturally occurring testosterone.

Use of Turinabol does not result in formation of excess estrogens, which is one of its biggest advantages as sportsmen trusting it easily avoid the use of antiestrogens such as Arimidex, Clomid, and Nolvadex. However, estrogen formation may be a problem for some users who have a related history after using steroids.

Turinabol use promotes agility and muscle strength in the body and is greatly associated with muscle definition, muscle function, and muscle size improvements.

The recommended dose of Turinabol for men is 100-150 mg on a daily basis and 5-15 mg on a daily basis for women. Use of this anabolic steroid does not involve any meal planning and doses should be recommended and regulated by a doctor. This is primarily because Turinabol abuse can lead to steroid side effects, including increased libido, acne, gastrointestinal pain, liver damage, and uncontrolled aggressive behavior. This anabolic steroid is not recommended to be used by pregnant and lactating women and individuals afflicted with liver damage, prostate cancer, and breast cancer or having hypersensitivity to the steroid or any of its ingredients. The steroid should be stored at a controlled room temperature of 20° to 25°C (68° to 77°F) with excursions permitted to 15° to 30°C (59° to 86°F) to maintain its shelf life and efficacy.
