Damn, that's crazy.. the side effects that is.
Although i think flamers are anti-social d*ckheads, I still think newbies should do their prior research. Maybe on a forum, if you don't do your research.. people will flame you.
But in the real world, if you don't do your research, companies will take you for a ride.
The people who don't do research are a great revenue raiser for drug companies.
I'm not saying if you have a headache, spend hours on studying paracetamol.
But i'm saying if you're going to invest 100s to enhance performance or build muscle using a complex group of chemicals, it's important to know as much as possible. And even consult it with a doctor.
Considering that body building supps are almost seen as a taboo in society, i don't see why a newbie wouldn't think about researching it first.
