The supplement industry is notoriously underregulated in the United States, leading many dangerous supplements or PEDs labeled as supplements to be sold over the counter.  Just last week, the supplement OxyElite Pro was pulled from shelves in Hawaii after it was determined to be the cause of acute non-viral hepatitis in 29 patients, killing at least one person.  Within the last year, the Food and Drug Administration has tried to crack down on supplements containing 1,3-dimethylamylamine, or DMAA.  N,alpha-DEPEA was marketed as an alternative to such supplements, which had such trade names as Decimate, Body Burn and Infested.

Continued Education in a profession like this is an absolute must.

Gage Wesley's curator insight, January 6, 2014 3:56 AM

In this article, I learned that your clients or what some would call peers, need to trust and accept you in order to see the best results possible. Even though you may have a degree, continued research is still appreciated within the community of physical therapy. You also need to provide all the information necessary to a patient/client so that they can make an informed decision on what they want to do.

Marcus Lamar Aaron's curator insight, April 17, 2015 10:12 PM

when your trying to build a sports program that rivals the upper echelon at he D-1 level. At Boise State you never going to have the revenue streams like Ohio State, USC, Texas for example. You have to find other ways to stand out like the Blue turf for the football team and hiring great coaches. You also though have to make sure you stay true to your ethics and not cut corners.

Why not Carl Lewis? He had failed tests. He never admitted, just told on the winner. What makes these testing failures so shocking?

Brent Moore's curator insight, November 15, 2013 7:10 PM

It is not the first time that Olympic sprinters have been found to have used banned substances. The race between Ben Johnson and Carl Lewis in the 1988 Olympics has been call the "Dirtiest Race in History" by many because of the rampant use of banned substance by its competitors. The clash between personal and professional ethics in the pursuit of winning a sports championship often results in competitors cheating with performance enhancing drugs in an attempt to gain an edge.

Do you use herbal supplements?   Maybe you should read this holistic nursing advice on how to properly use them.   For example do not take ginger if you are on blood thinning medications like Warfarin.   Herbs can be holistic healthcare gems but like any medication learn as much as you can before starting them.

Mortality in Randomized Trials of Antioxidant Supplements

Mortality in Randomized Trials of Antioxidant Supplements | Ethics in Sports | Scoop.it

 All randomized trials involving adults published by October 2005 comparing beta carotene, vitamin A, vitamin C (ascorbic acid), vitamin E, and selenium either singly or combined vs placebo or vs no intervention were included. The effect of antioxidant supplements on all-cause mortality was analyzed We included 68 randomized trials with 232 606 participants (385 publications).

Conclusions Treatment with beta carotene, vitamin A, and vitamin E may increase mortality. The potential roles of vitamin C and selenium on mortality need further study.

Oxidative stress is implicated in most human diseases so antioxicants mae theoretical sense. . Many primary or secondary prevention trials of antioxidant supplements have been conducted to prevent several diseases.   This trial review found that antioxidant supplements, with the potential exception of selenium, were without significant effects on gastrointestinal cancers and increased all-cause mortality. This review of antioxidant trials not only found that taking them is not beneficial but may be harmful.
