Ecdy Causes Cancer?

  1. Ecdy Causes Cancer?


    I just ordered 2 bottles of the Ecdy, and have been real excited to give it a try. I read an old thread today, and it kind of scared me. Maybe my fears aren't warrented and you can relay some newer thoughts on these findings.


    (was going to post a link to the thead "ecdysterone and cancer?" from bodybuilding dot com, but unfortunately I can't since my post count is so low)


    Specifically the part in the middle of the thread where it says that ecdysterone was on a list submitted to the (national toxicology program), and determined to be carcinogenic by the national cancer institute. Also the part near the bottom of the thread that says 95% pure ecdysterone powder dust should not be inhaled or allowed to touch the skin. If this stuff shouldn't even touch the skin, then how safe could it be to orally ingest it? Not trying to cause any false alarm, and I'm sure you can provide some insight as to these findings. I've really been looking forward to trying the Ecdy, so hopefully you can ease my worries.

    I hate bb dot come...

    I never heard of this before, but if you look below the Bb, com post there's a bunch of links for ecdysterone fights cancer.:::


  8. I'm not exactly a big fan either lol, but I did see some links that made me wonder. If you aren't supposed to breath the stuff or let it touch your skin, then wouldn't ingesting it be kind of scary?

    to be honest, i wasnt expecting it to turn out the way it did.......especially since the product was pretty much in positive light over here, figured it would at least stay half way civil

    What happened? What did I miss?

  15. I missed it too. I will poiny out(assuminh I am allowed to) that its used intramuscularly in some circles and I never heard of anyone getting cancer from using ecyd.

  16. If ecdy causes cancer I will die a very young man...

    Thanks for the insight bro.

    BB.com is not a place a I really turn to for legit information, to many people on that board with far inferior knowledge and to much time on there hands to create drama. There are many good members there, but the bad over-ride the good imo.

    Oh I hear ya man, and I totally agree. The thread did seem to contain some interesting stuff however. So am I the only one that wonders what harm might be done in ingesting something that isn't even supposed to come in contact with the skin? What about the link on the national cancer instutute declaring it a carcinogen? I'm not a hater and have 2 bottles on the way. I was hoping you guys could easy my worries lol. I sent Vaughn a pm with the info, but haven't heard back. This stuff only worries me??

  21. I go tanning... daily! Bring it

    Well, that definitely doesn't ease my worries any lol. I've had several family members die of cancer, and would rather not go that route personally :-). I think I'll wait for vaughn to refute the claims and/or add new evidence to the contrary before I start taking my ecdy. I'd also still like to know why 95% pure extract isn't supposed to come in contact with your skin. I had hoped for someone to make me feel good about taking the ecdy, but saying "I'll die young, and bring it" isn't exactly the comfort I was looking for lol.

  23. Sorry man, I'm not trying to down play the situation. It's just EVERYTHING nowa days causes cancer. I do my best to live a healthy life and I think it's safe to say most members here on AM do. Ecdy has always been known as a safe supplement but then bang there's someone at BB with a link to claims it causes cancer...

    Bottom line I'm not worried for now. I've search ecdy for hours on end and never seen a health concern. Who knows maybe I missed something...


  24. I read this on Friday and sort of scratched my head without giving it too much thought at the time. Since then I've had a bit of time to think about it and here is my rationale for ecdysterone's safety. It is a significant component in spinach and quinoa right? We all know that it is, so if ecdy really caused cancer then it follows that spinach and quinoa would have to be carcinogenic too. Now, does anyone honestly think spinach causes cancer, seriously.

    I will qualify the above with the following. I am not familiar with the plant that is used for the extraction of ecdy, but it is possible that lower purity extracts could contain some type of phytochemical which is carcinogenic, not ecdysterone though. This is my logic; I am not backing it up by any scientific studies, but in this case I honestly don't think it is necessary. I welcome your guys thoughts. I ordered 4 bottles of the 99% pure ECDY btw.

  25. i think it's worth exploring even if there is a slight chance something can be a carcinogen. I haven't the slightest clue on ECDY, but let's not knock the OP, or anyone for that matter, on have a concern over safety of supplementation.

    Great.... Wanna send some my way?


  28. +1 on the melanotan lol :-)! Ya hopefully Vaughn will post up soon with his take on this. I pm'd him the info like he asked, but he hasn't got back to me.

  29. Coffee used to be bad for you and now it has a ton of anti-ox. Hell the rank of the guy next to be in the stale as I breath could be effecting my lungs.

    Enjoy your supplements and respect them, as your body is a work of art!



    Damn, I must have taken my hemp sup
