Not a day goes by where my mailbox is spared from spam. A quick glance at my spam folder and I’m overwhelmed with mails on ED(erectile dysfunction), Weight loss, online pharmacy discounts, Anatrim (a dietary supplement that claims to suppress your appetite), and HGH (Human Growth Hormone) – I’m sure most of you can relate to this.
It is uncomfortable and thought provoking to see such a trend of subjects being spammed to mailboxes all over the world. It’s easy to understand why there will always be curiosity/demand for information related to drugs on weight loss, anabolic steroids, appetite suppressants, meds that claim to cure ED, and so on… but what about HGH – Human Growth Hormone? Now why would one be interested in buying Human Growth Hormone? Isn’t that freaky?
To me, and hopefully every one of you – bodybuilding and weight training should ALWAYS be about satisfaction derived from hard work, exercise, great eating habits and nutrition to achieve that awesome physique you’ve always desired. However, today, there are many ocassions where bodybuilding has just transformed into another form of drug abuse.
NOTICE: This writeup is for Informational purposes ONLY! Dailymuscle.com DOES NOT condone the use of synthetic substances/drugs that are made for other noble purposes but often end up being abused as a bodybuilding aid.
I still remember a few months ago, I met this really huge, freaky bodybuilder and I remember thinking to myself.. “this guy looks like an ANIMAL!”.. and then I saw him grab a vial of testosterone (packaged in a small white cardboard box) which clearly indicated on the outside – for ANIMAL use only… heck – there was even a picture of a horse and a dog on the box. Yeah, I laughed to myself… but at the same time.. I cringed in disgust.
Here are some facts that I saved from a magazine some time ago:
- Most of those who turn to drugs/other substances for bodybuilding are recreational bodybuilders, using it solely for cosmetic purposes
- A study done in the United States reveals that nearly 4 outta 5 of these users are not athletes and do it solely to improve their physical appearance.
- 89 percent of these abusers get their substances from unreliable sources
- more than 50 percent knowingly use substances manufactured in ‘bathtub’ labs (self manufactured)
- Almost 100 percent of users experience side effects to some extent.
Why talk about Growth Hormone?
A survey done in the UK, consisting of 200 gym goers revealed the following substances being abused:
- Ephedrine (44%)
- Growth Hormone (24%)
- Tamoxifen (22%)
- Clenbuterol (21%)
- Insulin (14%)
- Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (11%)
- Diuretics (10%)
- Thyroxine (10%)
*draw your attention to HGH usage – note that it is the second highest
As a person desiring to improve his physique, I can easily understand why the interest in Growth Hormone – the word GROWTH itself, WILL spark curiosity among us. We bodybuilders constantly strive to achieve muscle GROWTH, and when there exists an item that bluntly suggests it – you cant help but divert your attention to it.
While surfing around for information, I found somatropin.net (Somatropin is the scientific name for synthetic human growth hormone), which I found to be pretty informative and actually helped shed alot of light on questions I’ve always had on growth hormone.
Did you know, that as dodgy as it sounds – Growth Hormone is actually a good thing, made by reliable pharmaceutical companies for the treatment of:
• Growth Hormone Deficiency
• AIDS Wasting
• Treatment for Turner’s Syndrome
• Treatment for Prader-Willi Syndrome
• Growth Problems Caused by Short Bowel Syndrome
• Improper Growth in Children with Renal Disease
• Children with Rheumatoid Arthritis
I believe that this site is reliable as it seems to be a purely informational site clearing the air on Growth Hormone – not a site trying to sell you something. There’s also a page on HGH Scams and things to watch for which is an eye opener.
Human Growth Hormone is a very widely used drug/substance and has quite a reputation. A good one among those using it for the right purposes, and a very bad one among those people who know very little about such drugs. I’ve always believed that we should always be aware of what is out there in order to safeguard ourselves from being victims.
