Just imagine if the information age was available back in the 70's and 80's and even the 90's like today. We would hear more and more of these types of stories.. heck even at D1/D2/D3 summer camps around Wisconsin in the 80's I personally ran across anything from roids to prescription drugs.. just imagine what was taking place with those that had access to more.

Quite the med of choice here.. toxic and explosive.. lol.

PFTalk Story....

Quote:
“When I heard about deer antler spray, when I heard that, I said, ‘That’s nothing,’” Casillas said. “We used to use this stuff called DMSO. That’s what veterinarians put on horses, on a muscle, so this is stuff that you can rub, and we used it in the locker room. We had a bottle and you’d take it. It goes straight to the bloodstream. And I’m not sure about this deer antler stuff, but, I mean, it was prevalent in our locker room. It’s called DMSO. You get it from the veterinarian and it goes right to the bloodstream. It’s an ointment that’s like anti-inflammatory. You put it on your skin and you put it on a muscle, and I guarantee you, in about 30 minutes you’d feel it. It wasn’t on the list. If you’re going to talk about the deer antler stuff, we used DMSO and people knew it. Everyone knew about it.”

DMSO is an abbreviation for dimethyl sulfoxide, and although it is rarely mentioned in performance-enhancing drug scandals these days, its use by athletes was the source of some controversies in the 1980s and 1990s. In 1981, then-Falcons quarterback June Jones said he and his teammates regularly used DMSO and argued that it should be legalized for human use. Although veterinarians prescribe DMSO for animals as an anti-inflammatory, the FDA has approved DMSO only for very limited use for people with a chronic bladder condition, and has warned that DMSO is often fraudulently marketed as a miracle drug for humans, and that it has significant side effects.

Casillas noted that “it wasn’t on the list” of substances banned by the NFL, although he also seemed to acknowledge that it was improper for Cowboys players to obtain a prescription from a veterinarian and then use the substance on humans.

“Let’s put it this way: If you’ve got to get it from a veterinarian, it’s probably — it’s kind of like getting Winstrol V, they’ve got to get it from a vet, but that’s a steroid,” he said.

Horse meds????????????

Come to Britian it's in our burgers and lasagnes!!!!

Full story below


16 January

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland says beefburgers with traces of equine DNA, including one product classed as 29% horse, are being supplied to supermarkets by Silvercrest Foods in Ireland and Dalepak Hambleton in Yorkshire, subsidiaries of the ABP Food Group.

Ten million suspect burgers are taken off the shelves, including by Tesco, Lidl, Aldi, Iceland and Dunnes Stores.

A third company, Liffey meats, based in County Cavan, Ireland, is also found to be supplying products to supermarkets with traces of horse DNA.


17 January

The ABP Food Group suspends work at its Silvercrest Foods plant in Co Monaghan, Ireland, until further notice.

Sainsbury's, Asda and the Co-op withdraw some frozen products as a precaution.

23 January

Burger King, which is supplied burgers by ABP Food Group, switches to another supplier as a precautionary measure.

25 January

The department of agriculture in Ireland reveals it has taken more than 130 samples of burgers and ingredients in the past week from the Silvercrest facility.

Meanwhile, Waitrose removes a range of frozen burgers made by Dalepak but says its burgers have been tested and are 100% beef.

The Food Standards Agency says tests at a Dalepak plant in North Yorkshire have found no traces of meat contaminated with horse or pork DNA.

Tesco drops Silvercrest as a supplier, saying it used meat in its products that did not come from a list of approved suppliers and was from outside the UK and Ireland.

30 January

Irish authorities say they believe "filler product" made from horsemeat and beef found in contaminated burgers came from Poland.

31 January

Burger King reveals its burgers were contaminated by horsemeat.

4 February

Production at a second meat supplier, Rangeland Foods in Co Monaghan, is suspended after 75% equine DNA is found in raw ingredients, the Irish department of agriculture confirms.

The department calls in police to aid its investigation, which includes possible fraud.

ABP Food Group is estimated to have lost €45m (£38m) in contracts.

5 February

Frozen meat at the Freeza Meats company in Newry, Northern Ireland, is found to contain 80% horsemeat, the Food Standards Agency Northern Ireland says. It is potentially linked to the Silvercrest factory in the Republic of Ireland. Asda withdraws products supplied by Freeza Meats.

6 February

Tesco and Aldi withdraw frozen spaghetti and lasagne meals produced by the French food supplier Comigel following concerns about its Findus beef lasagne.

7 February

The Food Standards Agency reveals a second case of "gross contamination" after some Findus UK beef lasagnes are found to contain up to 100% horsemeat. The products were made by Comigel.

The authority believes "criminal activity" is to blame and orders food companies to test their beef products.

Tesco and Aldi remove ready meals produced by Comigel from their shelves.
