Anabolic steroids are synthetic substances related to male sex hormones (androgens). Although it is illegal in the United States to possess or distribute anabolic steroids for nonmedical use, a "black market" for them exists, and many amateur and professional athletes take them to enhance performance. In many cases, the athletes take doses that are extremely high—perhaps 100 times the doses that might be prescribed for medical use. As a result, they put themselves in real danger of short-term and long-term health problems. Blood testing, as has been used in the Olympic Games, can detect, identify, and quantify the presence of anabolic steroids in the blood of athletes, which can lead to the disqualification of an athlete.
Thanks a lot. I am really inspired with your efforts to remove quite a lots of misconceptions about Homeopathy in general public. Many Leading Homeo drs are least interested in educating people about this. Many times i have asked my doctor ( one of the leading homeo dr in my city) and he says that it is out of jealousy people are spreading this propaganda. But my question is what is your effort in preventing this spread of false propaganda. Anyway i am really happy that, though you are always a busy person, but when approached- very mild, scientific tempered and matured person. May god give you more and more strength to spread homeopathy in a scientific spirit.
The Union Association survived for only one season (1884), as did the Players' League (1890), an attempt to return to the National Association structure of a league controlled by the players themselves. Both leagues are considered major leagues by many baseball researchers because of the perceived high caliber of play and the number of star players featured. However, some researchers have disputed the major league status of the Union Association, pointing out that franchises came and went and contending that the St. Louis club, which was deliberately "stacked" by the league's president (who owned that club), was the only club that was anywhere close to major league caliber.
