    Top Form Secrets: Warning: 7,8-Benzoflavone Is Carcinogenic

    I know we have some Sustain Alpha users out there. Thought it was interesting. Any thoughts? Not my area of expertise, just thought I'd bounce that off some of the sharper minds out there and learn.

    It also says it may prevent cancer...So if it causes cancer, yet also prevents it, is there a possibility that we're neutral in all of this?

    I'm currently using a 7,8-benz DERIVATIVE product. (2-Phenyl-benzo[h]chromen-4-one)

    I'm sure I take in plenty of carcinogenic stuff I don't even know about. I never know what to think about these studies.

    It is confusing. I searched further on this and have come up with no definitive answers. I can't say I am 100% with the source of this article so I was hoping to have someone with some hands on experience or a more iron-clad source for any info on this.

    Could you compare the difference in potency between that product(t-911) and Sustain Alpha. Ive only tried Sustain Alpha.

    Sure bud.

    This study states in conjunction with benzo[a]pyrene.

    It states this in the article:

    "A vast number of studies over the previous three decades have documented links between benzo[a]pyrene and cancers."1 (A VERY well known carcinogen).

    More than enough said right there. This whole article is completely ridiculous and incomplete in attempting to refute 7,8 Benzoflavone; or trying to shed a negative connotation on it. I guess some people will just throw intentional misinformed propaganda out there for ****s and giggles at times.

    In other words, I call complete and utter bullsh*t here.

    Benzopyrene is indeed a well known carcinogen that's all over HAZMAT, EPA et al lists.

    Just don't rub benzo[a]pyrene on your balls. Sustain Alpha is fine OTOH and you need at least one solid pump on your balls, more or less depending on scrotal surface area

    Benzo[a]pyrene, C20H12, is a five-ring polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon that is mutagenic and highly carcinogenic. It belongs to a class of polycyclic aromatic compounds known as benzopyrenes, which consist of a benzene ring fused to a pyrene molecule. Benzo[a]pyrene is a product of incomplete combustion at temperatures between 300 and 600 C. Benzo[a]pyrene was determined in 1933 to be the component of coal tar responsible for the first recognized occupation-associated cancers, the sooty warts (cancers of the scrotum) suffered by chimney sweeps in 18th century England. In the 19th century, high incidences of skin cancers were noted among fuel industry workers. By the early 20th century, the toxicity of benzo[a]pyrene was demonstrated when malignant skin tumors were produced in laboratory animals by repeatedly painting them with coal tar.

    I guess that there is an acquired scrotal rash worse than herpes, LOL!
