Are Major League Growth Hormone Testing Agreements Nothing More Than Hot Air?
Date:8/15/2013

NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The NFL Players Association just announced plans to allow the NFL to collect blood samples from players to test for the use of human growth hormone (hGH) injections. "So what?" asks Gabriel Flores, spokesperson for Novex Biotech®, one of the most aggressive companies in the sports science industry. "This is a sham. Our Growth Factor™-9 product has been proven to raise mean, serum (blood) growth hormone levels by 682%, and the testing the NFL is doing won't pick up the hGH increase GF9 causes."

Here are the facts: at a December 12, 2012 Congressional hearing regarding the NFL and hGH testing, it was made clear that increasing growth hormone levels naturally by nourishing the pituitary (the gland that manufactures hGH) would not trigger a positive result on anti-doping tests.

Dr. Larry Bowers, Chief Science Officer for the United States Anti-Doping Agency who testified at the hearing, explained, "The body produces many forms of growth hormone in the pituitary gland," but synthetic, recombinant hGH (rhGH) injections involve only one form, called 22kD. rhGH tests work by flagging people who have abnormally high ratios of 22kdD ... but science has already moved well past this.

Because you can now increase your body's natural production of hGH without synthetic injections —  and therefore without getting caught — Flores isn't the only one calling pro sport's dedication to testing a sham. "Let's face it," he says, "this sudden commitment to testing is pointless, because only the dumbest professional athletes are going to keep using banned synthetic hGH injections. Any athlete with a brain will see the benefit of using an oral compound that can ra
