the whole basis for his guilt is that they found SYNTHETIC testosterone in him.bonj said:I don't see how you can be guilty of taking a drug that's naturally occurring in the body anyway. How can they set a maximum legal limit when the amount in your body might be more than that anyway? What's he supposed to do, drain some off?
Pretty much any naturally occuring substance can be produced - and it is then synthetic. Becuase it isn't made within the body, it will have a different chemical constitution, even though it does a similar job within the body. Blood testing can therefore differentiate between endogenous & exogenous substances. Synthetic insulin can be open to sports abuse, and I have a feeling that there are tests available to differentiate between natural & synthetic insulin - I seem to recall this being used in the case against Beverley Allit in the early 1990's, as she used insulin to cause collapse in some of the infants she killed, and it was on subsequent review of blood tests that the insulin was detected.bonj said:Hmmm... I don't see how they know it's synthetic, if it's from his body and it's the same substance.
