Tainted Supplements

 

"A 2011 investigation by the California firm Anti-Doping Research, for example, revealed that 10 products purchased from the popular online store amazon.com contained illegal steroids that are known to have dangerous side effects such as liver toxicity (William Reed Business Media). A failed drug test can be devastating to an athlete and all parties involved, which is why it is critical to be informed prior to purchasing dietary supplements."
