    Health Canada Issues Warning Against Products Containing Anabolic Steroids


    (Ottawa, Ontario May 23, 2006) Health Canada recently issued an advisory to warn consumers about five products containing illegal anabolic steroids: Anabolic Xtreme Superdrol, Methyl-1-P, Ergomax LMG, Prostanozol and, and FiniGenX Magnum Liquid.

    These products, like all anabolic steroids, can cause serious adverse health effects such as liver damage, heart problems, hardening of the arteries, reduced fertility, masculinization, and enlargement of male breasts.

    They are not authorized for sale in Canada either as drugs or natural health products.

    Anabolic steroids are prohibited in sport under the 2006 World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List. Athletes subject to doping control should avoid using products which contain prohibited substances. Please remember that athletes always bear the ultimate responsibility for the products they ingest.

    The funny thing about this health warning and the FDA letters in the states is that they actually serve as some type of independent confirmation that these products actually contain what we believe them to contain.

    The government doesnt want strong people who make independant choices. They want dumb fat people who die young so they dont remember the ****ups for long, and are easy into to get into compliance.
