Caught: 6/13/07 , following his 38-second knockout loss against Bernard Ackah at Dynamite!! USA .
Tested positive for: Unspecified anabolic steroids. Morton’s pre-fight urine test came back as positive for a very elevated T/E (testosterone) ratio — , when the average for an athlete is 6.
Punishment: $2,500 fine and an indefinite suspension from the California State Athletic Commission. Morton’s $100,000 purse was also withheld after he refused to take a post-fight drug test. He hasn’t competed since.
The International Journal of Obesity linked the catechins in green tea to weight loss. “Catechins significantly decreased body weight and significantly maintained body weight after a period of WL (microcirc=- kg; P<). Inhibition of this effect by high habitual caffeine intake (>300 mg per day) failed to reach significance (microcirc=- kg for high and microcirc=- kg for low habitual caffeine intake; P=). Also, the seemingly smaller effect of catechins in Caucasian (microcirc=- kg) subjects compared with Asians (microcirc=- kg; P=) did not reach significance. Interaction of ethnicity and caffeine intake was a significant moderator (P=).” 
Testing this axis is not as easy as it sounds. The mammalian body is a dynamic system with thousands of chemical reactions and interactions occurring simultaneously. Also, levels of cortisol are in a continual state of flux, depending on the time of day, the season, medications, diet, and stress levels. Underlying diseases like Urinary Tract Infections can affect these screening tests, and need to be controlled first. Because of all this variability, interpreting these tests can be problematic, and it is not uncommon to repeat them in the future to look for consistent findings and monitor trends.
