It seems that lately all you hear about is the human growth hormone and the professional athletes or music celebrity who are under suspicion for using human growth hormone to recover from injuries quicker or to enhance their muscle mass, up their metabolism… you name it, human growth hormone does it.
I get it, human growth hormone is listed as one of performance enhancing drugs that you can not take if you are in professional sports. But the naming of names has gone way further than just professional sports.
Why are celebrities who have allegedly used HGH human growth hormones being outed?
It seems that authorities have launched an Albany, NY based steroid investigation to try and crack down on the doctors who are prescribing human growth hormone under false pretenses. Fine. But why then do I only see the media listing celebrities involved with human growth hormone and not the doctors prescribing it?

- and…no, that’s it
Well of course there is that pesky human growth hormone negative side effect where your heart can grow too large for the blood supply going to it. But is that dependent upon the dose that you take? I don’t know for sure.
You can definitely see why human growth hormone is not just for athletes anymore. Well Jesus, if I had the money I would probably be taking human growth hormone too. But I don’t have the money because a monthly human hormone treatment can cost up to $500.00…bummer.
Obviously there have been no studies on the long term effects of the human growth hormone so we don’t really know what the repercussions of using human growth hormone on a regular basis will be. I guess we’ll have to wait and find out.
