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'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?

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.

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...

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.

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.

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
