"Doctor visits must be so terrifying when youíre a famous athlete. The second you hit it big as a fighter or baseball player or track and field star, it seems thereís always some medical professional trying to shoot you up with one mysterious injection or another. Happens all the time, if you believe the version of events offered by athletes like UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem or baseball star Barry Bonds.
Think youíre getting some harmless vitamins? No way, pal. To hear some athletes tell it, they can hardly walk down the street without being pumped full of performance-enhancing substances against their will. These poor, poor souls. All they want to do is stay clean, and this cruel world of ours just won't let them.
Isnít it funny how this never seems to happen to normal people? Most of us just donít seem to receive free pharmaceuticals with such regularity. Most of us could go our whole lives and never run into the kind of doctors who, when questioned under oath, are suddenly unable to recall whether they told us what was in the shot they were about to give us. Then again, most of us arenít looking for those sorts of doctors."
I never get drug tested so I have no idea if something that my doctor is giving me would cause me to piss hot. I dont know if a simple pill my doctor gives me casue I'm sick also is used as a masking agent for roids. I dont really care if when my doctor gives me a shot if it has steroids in in that will help me recover faster. If I buy something from GNC I have zero clue if it was a contaminated batch. When athletes go to the doctor the doctor knows that there are certain medications that the athletes cant take becasue they are on the banne dsubstances list, sometimes the doctors and athletes make mistakes. Do I think this happens all the time, no, there are athletes who use banned substances to improve performance. Every now and then though I do think its an honest mistake.
