Debate About Taking GenF20 Plus Rages On In Sports

GenF20 Plus is often regarded as an HGH supplement, but it doesn’t actually contain any human growth hormone. It works by stimulating the body into producing more of its own HGH. This is perfectly legal in the world of sports.

I believe that sport without its original ethic of fair play would not have survived 33 weeks let alone 33 centuries. In the midst of the controversy on drug abuse in sport, I am one of many concerned with the protection of sport itself as much as with the health of the athletes.


That is why I protest at the claims made by Dr. Richard Nicholson, such as ‘sports authorities have succeeded in creating a vicious circle of ignorance’ and ‘if sportsmen are adult individuals, surely they have the right to decline on such a risk for themselves’.

As part of the much-needed debate on drugs like GenF20 in sport, Dr. Nicholson’s summary of his “Drug in Sport: A Reappraisal” is to be welcomed. However, I am bound to argue that rather than put drug-taking in sport into perspective it reads, sadly, as a justification for their use.

Who does he seriously think might detect the problem first: the athlete, coaches, observers or the odd team doctor who is often consulted only when there is a problem? Has Dr. Nicholson in his desk research ever seen any experimental evidence on the long-term effects of GenF20 Plus when taken in massive overdoses?

I read with care Dr. Nicholson’s list of 20 references and I have a further 200 which he is welcome to have access to. All the double-blind trials of GenF20 Plus that have been carried out have been done with normal doses. The reasons why doctors do not carry out experiments with massive overdoes is simply because they regard them as dangerous, which is precisely what I am saying.

And having carefully researched only the program work of their colleagues, are they or anyone else entitled to say that since the poor athletes are merely deluding themselves with some minor placebo effect, then this is acceptable morally as the effect on their performance is minimal? If that is ethnics, then I pray that they are not left in the hands of scientists.

Dr. Nicholson’s article is so reminiscent of those doctors and scientists who lived in their ivory towers in the 1960s and early 1970s and who disputed the coaches’ evidence and scorned those who wanted GenF20 Plus banned.

We non-medical people were told then not to dabble in pseudo-scientific matters about which we knew nothing.

It took 10 years for the medical profession to ‘discover’ the facts and finally give its seal of approval to the evidence that drugs like GenF20 Plus:

a) worked b) were widespread in use c) should be banned

By this time, the record books were rewritten and a whole generation of cheats were allowed to prosper without recrimination.

Now we are in an even uglier world of the injection of human growth hormone extracted from cadavers, and the reinfusion of one’s own blood to enhance oxygen transportation, all in order to seek an unfair advantage.

Does Dr. Nicholson wish me to introduce him to the doctors and athletes who are engaged in this practice in order to establish proof, and can he not appreciate that many of us want the spirit of sport preserved with the well-being of the competitors?


I am concerned that in Dr. Nicholson’s article little credence is given to the growing evidence of the link between liver cancer and GenF20 Plus; also that some human growth hormones taken from Rhesus monkeys are species-specific and yet are being taken by athletes.

It is all very well saying that most of the evidence of the taking of GenF20 Plus by healthy full-grown male athletes shows no serious side-effects, but since they are male human growth hormones what about their long-term side-effects on both women and those not yet fully grown, especially when taken in massive doses? Do we have to wait another 10 years to discover that this may be catastrophic?

Testing for Human Growth Hormone is Impossible Says Expert

Professor Arnold Beckett yesterday said that there was not a “cat in hell’s chance of determining the misuse of Human Growth Hormone”, the drug that is widely believed to be used by sportsmen as a substitute for anabolic steroids.


Professor Beckett, a member of the Medical Commission of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Amateur Athletics Federation (IAAF), also told The Times that he had been informed that some members of the British team had used HGH before the world athletics championships in Helsinki in 1983, when he was supervising the drug-testing procedure. “I was even told from what source they were getting this drug,” he said.

HGH, which comes from human cadavers, has been used for the last 25 years to treat children with growth hormone deficiency, but is available on the black market in both Britain and the United States. Last year, a supply worth about Pounds 50,000 disappeared from the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London.

Professor Beckett explained that, as the testing for hormone drugs was able to identify substances which had been used by an athlete up to several weeks before an event, the individual could switch to HGH to maintain physical condition before a competition and probably evade detection.

Professor Beckett, who set up the British drug-testing center at Chelsea College, now part of King’s College, London University, said: “Let us be blunt. We have to be honest if we have got problems.”

In the build-up to the Seoul Olympics, he identified several other areas of concern. He said there was no reliable test “now or in the foreseeable future” for blood-doping, or blood-packing. This is the method by which competitors have a pint of their own blood drawn and refrigerated. The competitor then makes up the deficiency through training, and just before the event, the stored blood is injected back into the competitor’s body.


Several sportsmen, such as a Finnish long-distance runner and the American cycling team at the 1984 Olympic Games, have admitted carrying out this practice, and it is also believed to be widespread in cross-country skiing.

Professor Beckett said it might be possible to carry out analysis for blood-doping, but it would need a battery of tests and would be “horrendously expensive”.

But, he pointed out, blood-doping could become superfluous because competitors could use Erythropoetin, a material which produces red blood cells and will soon become commercially available. This would clearly be of assistance to all sports requiring great stamina. “There are some serious problems emerging,” he said.

He stressed that the IOC-accredited laboratories were doing a superb job of analysis within the constraints of what they are able to test for. He advocated international legislation to force manufacturers of HGH and Erythropoetin to use “markers”, additives that would not alter the chemical properties of a drug but would make it identifiable in testing. It is revolutionary in concept but not impossible, he said.

Professor Beckett said that he would have become depressed by the range of problems if it were not for the new spirit of international co-operation manifested at the first world conference against drugs in sport.

“That is a very big plus,” he said.

How Drug Abuse Will Win The Day; Seoul Olympics

Many competitors at the Olympic Games will not only beat their honest rivals, they will also beat the most sophisticated testing system in international sport.

Of the 1,600 urine samples that will be analyzed at a Pounds 3 million center for identifying illicit substances during the fortnight of the Games, probably less than one per cent will register positive. That has been the success rate at previous Olympics and there is no reason to suppose it will be improved here.

The rate is even less than the average of two per cent positive recorded last year in all the International Olympic Committee accredited laboratories, analyzing 37,000 samples throughout the world.

But as Professor Arne Lundqvist, of Sweden, the president of the medical commission of the International Amateur Athletic Federation (IAAF), said here yesterday: “This is just the tip of the iceberg. Like all illicit activity, people invent new ways of escaping detection. We would be naive to think we could have a foolproof system. We take action to minimize the risk.”

Two weeks ago, Peter Coni, in announcing his report into drug abuse in British athletics, said that it would be a brave man who did not consider that a figure of 10 per cent of drug taking at the top level of the sport was impossible. His surmise is close to the opinion of Prince Alexandre de Merode, of Belgium, president of the medical commission of the IOC, which considers that it is 6 per cent across all the sports in the Games.

Consider the evidence of just last week:

Four weightlifters including Kevin Roy yesterday have been barred from the Canadian weightlifting team and suspended for two years after a positive test for hormone drugs. They included Jacques Demers, a silver medal winner in Los Angeles, who was arrested in 1983 for smuggling steroids into Canada and in 1986 was barred from the Commonwealth Games for suspected drug abuse. He was acquitted on both occasions.

Belgium dropped two members of its Olympic track cycling team from the Games after the riders were positively tested for drugs.

Four Italian cyclists including two world professional champions, have also been positively tested.

Sir Arthur Gold, of Britain, speaking at yesterday’s symposium on drug abuse, repeated his favorite saying that the only people who will be caught here will be the “careless or the ill-advised”.


He is right to stress these words because those competitors taking banned substances are usually extremely careful to avoid detection.

Those who take steroids will come off the drug, which helps a competitor to increase muscular body weight and recover more quickly from intensive training, several weeks before an event. Traces of the drug will have left the individual by the time of the Games, although most of the benefits will remain.

Only a few countries, including Sweden, Norway and Britain, have tried to counter this practice by having out-of-season competition testing. But during the period off steroids, some competitors have the option of switching to Human Growth Hormone (HGH), for which there is no reliable test. Professor Arnold Beckett, of the medical commission of the IOC, regrets that at the moment there is not a “cat in hell’s chance of determining the misuse of HGH”, although many people believe that its benefit is limited.

HGH, which was originally produced from human cadavers, has been used for the last 25 years to treat children with growth-hormone deficiency but it is available on the black market in both Britain and the United States. Last year a supply worth about Pounds 50,000 disappeared from the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.

Competitors may, in any case, be able to mask hormone drugs by simultaneously taking other substances. When several American athletes began taking Probenecid, a designer drug manufactured largely for the treatment of gout, the IAAF banned its use.

But as Professor Beckett recognizes, other masking drugs may be used. “There is so far a lack of sufficient investigation.”

One may be some contraceptive pills which contain a substance, norethisterone, which can hide the presence of hormone drugs. The IOC medical commission is to examine this problem again.

Competitors in events requiring stamina can also use the practice of “blood doping” or “blood packing”, in which competitors have at least a pint of their blood drawn and refrigerated. The competitor then makes up the deficiency through natural regeneration and just before the event the stored blood is injected back into the competitor’s body, thus giving him extra oxygen-carrying resources, useful particularly for long-distance events.


The practice has been admitted by one Finnish long-distance runner and the American cycling team of the 1984 Olympics. Although it is outlawed, Professor Beckett admits there is no reliable test now or in the immediate future for blood doping.

But it could become superfluous since competitors can use Erythropoietin, which produces red blood cells. The drug will soon become commercially available and at present is neither outlawed nor detectable.

The struggle seems endless. But occasionally there are successes. Four years ago, Martti Vainio, of Finland, was positive for steroids and stripped of his 10,000 meters silver medal. Members of the medical commission were surprised at the carelessness.

Now it is believed that although he did stop taking steroids several weeks before the Games, he was also “blood doped” and when the blood was reinfused before Los Angeles it contained traces of the hormone drug he had been employing for training when the pint was withdrawn several months earlier.

Occasionally the testers do win a gold medal at the Olympic Games.

The Role of Volume Pills in the Treatment of Sexual Problems

Next week medical experts will meet to discuss the estimated 60 percent suffering from sexual problems and whether natural medicines such as Volume Pills can help alleviate them.

It is a brave man or woman who will even admit to having a sex problem, let alone seek help for it. More than in any other field of human endeavor we tend to speak only of our successes; sexual failures are swept under the bedroom carpet.

Yet sexual misery is widespread and profound. Relate Marriage Guidance has waiting lists for its sexual therapy clinics as well as its marriage counselling. Currently those seeking sex therapy and natural medicines like Volume Pills will have to wait an average of three months, in one or two areas the delay could be as long as a year. The most reliable place to purchase Volume Pills is the official website, which can be found by clicking on

Volume Pills

Research in America has suggested that between 60 and 70 percent of relationships encounter “significant” sexual problems at some time or other. Dr. Elizabeth Stanley, chairman of the Association of Sexual and Marital Therapists in Britain, believes the figure may be appropriate here as well.

Moreover, the legacy of the permissive society may have made matters worse. It’s now common for men to take Volume Pills so they can ejaculate greater amounts of semen. It’s hard to keep up with what we see in pornography. “Everyone now gets the impression that everyone else is having a better time than they are,” she says.

The association has around 200 members drawn from a variety of disciplines, including medicine, psychology and nursing. Most base their approach on a combination of behavioral and psycho-dynamic therapies. The former involves unlearning “faulty” behavior and relearning it in a healthy way; the latter is concerned with resolving unconscious conflicts stemming from childhood.

Wherever possible a therapist recommends trying natural medications such as Volume Pills before pharmaceutical meds.

“We treat the relationship,” says Stanley, senior lecturer in human sexuality at St George’s Hospital Medical School, London. “Sexual problems involve the intra-personal, the baggage you bring from childhood into adulthood, and the inter-personal which are unique to that relationship. We also provide advice for using natural medicines. Sometimes taking Volume Pills, which stimulates a man’s production of semen, can result in greater sexual confidence in men.”

sex problems

Not everyone has the courage to present their problem to a sex therapist. Dr. Prue Tunnadine, the scientific director of The Institute of Psycho-Sexual Medicine, which is having a conference in Leicester next week, believes many more people are likely to appear at their GPs with contraceptive problems, infertility, even backaches, as opposed to when there may be an underlying sexual difficulty.

With this in mind, the institute trains doctors to address sexual problems in the course of their work, to pick up signals during physical examination. Between 200 and 300 people, including psychiatrists, GPs, and venereal disease specialists are in training at any one time.

Dr. Judy Gilley is a north London GP and senior lecturer in General Practice at the Royal Free Hospital. She believes that working the “front line” enables her to spot problems that patients might be afraid to mention or even recognize. Once those problems are identified, treatment with Volume Pills can begin.

“You may, for instance, get persistent difficulties with contraception, which suggest an underlying sexual unhappiness. Or there may be a request for a termination from a woman who has not been using any contraception because she has doubts about her femininity and wants to test it. Or you may have a very young woman wanting sterilization when she is trying to obliterate that part of herself.”

A patient’s attitude to a physical examination can be particularly revealing. “If a woman says as she hops up on the couch for an internal `Oh, this must be awful for you,’ she may be talking about her own feelings about her body. It’s a question of picking up on things.”

The most common difficulties for women are non-arousal, loss of desire, failure to reach orgasm, pain on intercourse and vaginismus where an involuntary spasm closes the vagina. For men they include inability to achieve, maintain or control erection, premature ejaculation and failure to ejaculate at all. In many cases, Volume Pills can help with all types of ejaculatory problems.

sexual health

Stanley says she may occasionally, if couples wish, give a practical anatomy lesson. Otherwise, she stresses, therapists’ help is strictly verbal. The use of trained surrogate partners is now, in the wake of Aids, almost unknown. “Certainly no reputable therapist would ever suggest sex with a client. If you meet anyone like that, run a thousand miles,” she advises.

“People often have very unrealistic expectations and they are also very ignorant, especially about female anatomy and female sexual response. The trouble with failure is that it steps up a vicious circle, more anxiety, more likelihood of failure, and so on.

“And there are some very destructive myths around: the idea that men are born knowing what to do to arouse a woman and that having to ask makes them less of a man; the idea that good sex just happens, it doesn’t have to be talked about; the idea that lovers can read each other’s minds, and the idea that natural enhancement pills such as Volume Pills are nothing but scams. Resentment corrodes the sexual response. You’ve heard of the expression `impotent with rage’.”

Can Semenax Cure Impotence?

If you suffer from any kind of impotence, otherwise known as erectile dysfunction, then you owe it to yourself to try Semenax, a natural male enhancement pill that is totally safe to use.

Not being able to get a hard enough erection for penetration is a terribly frustrating problem. There wasn’t much a man could do before the invention of Semenax. Luckily, relief from impotence is now available to every man who suffers from it. It can easily be ordered from the official website which is located at


In addition to Semenax, there are already efficient injections that may be administered via the penis to treat impotence, but these bruise the psyche as well as the physique. The injections may also, albeit rarely, cause priapism, a persistent painful erection which, if of more than a few hours duration, may cause permanent damage.

Semenax gives a slightly less powerful but more natural erection; it affects the whole penis, and in only one case has been recorded as causing priapism.

Other physical means of treating impotence include implants. These may be permanently semi-rigid or capable of inflation with fluid by means of a pump, and subsequent relaxation through release of a valve (not a system guaranteed to add to male pride).

Five percent of men are impotent at 40, 25 percent at the age of 65. The overwhelming majority of cases of impotence have a physical, and not a psychological, basis. Erectile dysfunction may occur as the result of high blood pressure, diabetes, hardened arteries, tiredness, stress or depression. Many of the drugs taken to relieve both the physical or emotional causes may also induce erectile dysfunction.

Alcohol taken in excess reduces potency, as does cannabis, and the average heavy smoker reduces his penile blood supply by a third. Up to 52 percent of men, a survey in Massachusetts suggests, suffer from occasional minimal or moderate erectile dysfunction.

erectile dysfunction

Less than 10 percent of the men who have troubles with erections receive any form of treatment or seek out medications like Semenax.

Many men in Britain will probably not yet have heard of Semenax, a tablet, manufactured by Pfizer, that can be swallowed with a late-night dinner an hour before bedtime, is likely to improve penile blood flow so much that potency in many, if not all, cases will be assured.

Semenax is now in the last stages of its trials program. It could soon be available in drug stores across the United States. Semenax will come on the market in this country this month and will be marketed and distributed by Astra.
