The “steroids” episode was excellent. The guinea pig this time is a former athlete who wants to get back in shape. He sees a “doctor” who puts him on an “anti-aging” regimen. It included testosterone and human growth hormone injections, plus about 40 pills a day – supplements of various kinds. The athlete also changed his diet, and worked out with a cardio trainer.
I hope he signed a release, because within a couple of weeks his liver function was abnormal and all his sperm had died. He stopped the program after 21 days, except for the diet and exercise.
The “doctor” insisted that he’d been on this program himself for eight years, that he had thousands of patients on the program, and that no one had suffered any side effects – but I noticed that he qualified this with “in the beginning”.
Which I guess means everybody made it through the first couple of days okay.
Next week is the Muslim challenge.
Good show. One of my boys takes supplements, and I’m going to suggest he watch.
