Danger of Synthol

Synthol (synthol).

A few years ago you could hardly find an ever more information about synthol in ruskoyazychnyh media. It almost was not. And now, just lazy about it have not heard – many articles … Although they are essentially clones of a small transferable Wikipedia that appeared in “Muscle & Fitness” for May 2001 and must pay tribute, has promoted this shit from us. However, it has been particularly active this theme became obsuzhdatsya on various websites and forums just last year. And I must say pleased that both heterosexual and consumers of steroids in the majority agree that the use of synthol – the prerogative of the head ill people do not have to sport in any way. And now in order.


Synthol – Pump’N’Pose So it has decided that talking about creating synthol begin by mentioning esiklena. I remind you that this drug has gained immense popularity in the 80 years, has an extremely low anabolic activity, but intramuscular injections has the property to cause strong inflammatory response, resulting in swelling and, accordingly, short-term (around 24 hours) increase in muscle. These properties and led to the widespread use of esiklena competing bodybuilders. And at the same time prompted the German chemist amateur Chris Clark to the idea that a good idea to create a similar drug for long periods. Obtained in the early 90’s, he composition of Synthol ( http://ru.fishki.net/picsw/072008/07/synthol/synthol ) – like the name of one of the most powerful technology of nuclear fusion. However, this name was already patented, so it was invented by a new – “Pump’N’Pose” (Download and Pose). Under this brand name drug is now sold worldwide.

One of the first users synthol was a German strongman Klaus Doring, who calls himself “the owner of the biggest hands in the world,” the size of 27 inches (this umolishennogo you still see). At the end of the article in Kunstkammer and you realize that now there is nothing unusual. A couple of inches with synthol – a common occurrence. And kolyat it is now not only in the biceps and triceps, but also in igronozhnye, quadriceps, deltoids and pectoral muscles.

Clark found a truly a gold mine (for myself of course), as provided an opportunity for thousands of people ready to go at all for the sake of MASS virtually trouble-free method that does not shun any amateur or pro. $ 400 – that is the price of a bottle synthol, which is banned for use in the “intended use” all federations and committees, but is sold worldwide as oil for posing.

What is Synthol?

Synthol is 85% composed of C8 fatty acids (MCT-Medium Chain Triglycerides – Triglycerides average chain lengths), a number of C10 and C12 fatty acids, 7.5% lidocaine (local anesthetic), 7.5% benzyl alcohol. In simple terms this oil (fat) with some degree of Analgesic substances. The drug is inserted deep into the muscle, which is deposited between the bundles of muscle fibers. With repeated injections, the volume of oil in the muscle grows, increasing its size, just as a stretched balloon filling with air. About 30% of the drug is metabolized by the body. The remaining 70% remain in the muscles, which lasted for more than 3-5 years and are very slow decay. Over the duration of synthol there are many disputes, but mostly they boil down to what synthol lingers in the muscles for much longer than was stated – at least 8 years.

How to apply Synthol? “Injections are made with a fine needle to a depth of one-quarter inch. During the first 20 days of daily 1 ml. 10 more days – to 2 ml. Then 3 ml daily until the muscle will increase its volume. When growth stops within 30 days to 1 ml daily. Another 30 days – 1 ml twice a day. Then, 1 ml per week for 1 month. Only after passing this course gains in muscle size is constant, and the muscle is not reduced. After 4 months of the course must be repeated again: it may be possible to achieve a new addition of the volume (although the chances are not so great, about 50 to 50). From the point of view of medicine is very similar obsessions with schizophrenia. Just imagine – a minimum of 275 ml in the same muscle, at least 250 injections in one muscle!



User training synthol.

Probably many have heard about what workout using Synthol (language does not turn to call them athletes) take the unusual fullness, becoming “really heavy”. Every now and then you read about the “extraordinary Pampa”, that his hands after a single approach in any upper body exercise, “hammered” after hundreds of approaches like any exercise at hand. All this indicates firstly the absolute ignorance of the consumers themselves, and secondly, the absolute literacy of those who sell this stuff. Therefore, be clear. Actually Pump (pump) – is a subjective sensation, which arises in the results at the amplified blood flow to the working muscle, which arises due to expansion of blood vessels and increases blood flow, respectively, the muscles, which is perceived as Distension, etc. With regard to the severity of training and “clogging” of muscles, everything is determined by functional ischemia working muscles (ie, although the blood flow and increased, but it is still insufficient to ensure adequate muscle with oxygen), the consequence is anaerobic glycolysis, lactic acid, burning and pain in the muscles. What happens if the space between muscle fibers is Synthol? It’s very simple. During the same approach will suspend the oil mechanically compresses blood vessels and nerve endings that felt like Pampa, burning, “plugging muscle” muscle is almost no work.

The danger of using synthol.


“While Clarke claims that synthol absolutely safe, however, in an episode of” Uncensored “Greg Zulaka he withdrew all responsibility for possible consequences for the organism, with its use for any purpose other than oil for posing.” This is a quotation. Funny to read. Now seriously.

Greg Valentino’s hand after a failed injection. A more accurate after the operation. He lucky to be alive.
He lucky to be alive.

Any injections, even properly perform potentially dangerous for the organism. Virtually no one other than physicians (and not all doctors) do not know of topographic anatomy of blood vessels and nerves. Especially when it comes to small muscle groups. T. of. by intramuscular injection fairly easy to damage a particular nerve, causing paresis (violation of sensitivity) or paralysis of the innervated area.

Scott Klein – died May 22, 2003 after a failed injection synthol.Best result – 11 in the heavyweight champion at the U.S. Championships in 1998.
Contact with a needle into a blood vessel (particularly in the vein) is much more dangerous in terms of development of fat embolism of vessels of the heart, lungs, brain, which often leads to death. Much more often postinjection infection and abscess (localized purulent inflammation), and phlegmon (generalized purulent inflammation) requiring surgery.

Milos Sartsev – one of the few pro confess application synthol. Before surgery on the right biceps.He is after the operation.
In addition to all other components of the drug directly stimulates an inflammatory response in the muscle, but considerable amounts of fatty acids for a long time deposited between muscle bundles, causing ischemia, atrophy and sclerosis of the muscle tissue. Think of at least 250 chances to go to the light!

Ethics and aesthetics.

When it comes to that, IFBB has banned the use synthol I start to laugh. IFBB with its prohibitions is a mockery of themselves. Releasing the list of banned drugs, they seem to indicate that you need to take an athlete to achieve better results in this federation. They require a monster and monsters are not forced to wait long. But if the use of steroids has nothing to do with natural sports, Synthol has nothing to do with sports at all – it’s from somewhere in another world … The world of mutants, or something. And it has nothing to do that, we have a guy with a steroid 50 cm hand lose sintolovomu bastard with a shoulder and forearm 56 cm x 27 cm, and then where would be naturals. None. Just sick of all this.

Cabinet of Curiosities!
Gregg Valentino – best known sintolschik in the world, and part-owner of “the biggest hands in bodbildinge. For me it is so so cylinders with crap instead of hands. Incidentally, what happened to his hand, you might see … lightly.

Klaus Doring – this is the one language does not turn to say strongman, one of the first users synthol, more like a mutant pig. Laurels Valentino did not give him a rest here and tries to …144

Klaus Kaak – crazy old man. As someone put it on one forum: “He seems to escaped from the madhouse, and the output of the guards bucket synthol steal.”



How is it possible to comment – I do not know. Simply tell where synthol not, because such places do not. Nothing is more idiotic is not seen.

Ulcers instead of biceps are visible even under a layer of paint. A gripping teeth probably trained separately.

And as you are govnoemkosti. No, you look around: all the surrounding Islands, blevanut here – specifically, it was worth it. For the sake of this one was worth to be born.

The high cost of cheap chicken

The high cost of cheap chicken

97% of the breasts we tested harbored bacteria that could make you sick. Learn how to protect yourself.

Last updated: January 2014

Dangerous bacteria

We tested more than 300 raw chicken breasts from stores across the country.

When you shop at your favorite grocery store, you probably assume that the food on display is safe to take home. But in the poultry aisle, that simple assumption could make you very sick. Consumer Reports’ recent analysis of more than 300 raw chicken breasts purchased at stores across the U.S. found potentially harmful bacteria lurking in almost all of the chicken, including organic brands. In fact, we were conducting our research when news of the national salmonella outbreaklinked to three Foster Farms chicken plants became public. In that case 389 people were infected, and 40 percent of them were hospitalized, double the usual percentage in most outbreaks linked to salmonella. (Read about sustainable alternatives when it comes to raising chickens and watch our video on the use of antibiotics in animals.)

What’s going on with the nation’s most popular meat? (Americans buy an estimated 83 pounds per capita annually.) Though 48 million people fall sick every year from eating food tainted with salmonella, campylobacter, E. coli, and other contaminants, “more deaths were attributed to poultry than to any other commodity,” according to an analysis of outbreaks from 1998 through 2008 by the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Here’s what you should know before buying your next package of chicken.

It’s unrealistic to expect that the uncooked chicken you buy won’t contain any potentially harmful bacteria. That’s one reason we advise you to prevent raw chicken or its juices from touching any other food and to cook it to at least 165˚ F. (Check our reviews of meat thermometers.) Yet some bacteria are more worrisome than others—and our latest tests produced troubling findings. More than half of the samples contained fecal contaminants. And about half of them harbored at least one bacterium that was resistant to three or more commonly prescribed antibiotics.

Public-health officials say they think that the resistance to antibiotics in general is such a major concern that in September the CDC released a landmark report outlining the dire threat it poses to our health. Antibiotic-­resistant infections are linked to at least 2 million illnesses and 23,000 deaths in the U.S. each year. And if antibiotic-­resistant bacteria continue their scary spread, they could lead to deadly infections after routine surgery or even a seemingly innocuous cut because the drugs that doctors prescribe will have lost their effectiveness.

Our tests showed that those resistant bacteria are commonly found in chicken at your local grocery store. We collected samples in July 2013, months before the Foster Farms salmonella outbreak drew a public-health alert from the Department of Agriculture (USDA). It turned out that we had purchased a package of the tainted chicken and that our tests found a strain of salmonella (known as Heidelberg) that matched one of those linked to the outbreak.

Salmonella bacteria come in many strains. To understand their differences, think of all of the different breeds of dogs, says Lance Price, Ph.D., a professor in environmental and occupational health at the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services in Washington, D.C. “All dogs are the same species, but a Chihuahua and a pit bull behave differently,” he says. The drug-resistant Heidelberg strain of salmonella associated with the Foster Farms outbreak is more likely than other strains to cause disease. Antibiotic resistance by itself doesn’t make a pathogen more virulent, but when it occurs in a virulent strain such as the Heidelberg, something inherently dangerous suddenly becomes even worse—a bacterium that Price says acts “like a pit bull with rabies.”

Most of the illnesses caused by Foster Farms chicken produced symptoms typical of any salmonella infection—nausea, vomiting, severe stomach cramps, diarrhea, and a low-grade fever, says Christopher Braden, M.D., director of the division of foodborne, waterborne, and environmental diseases at the CDC. What was different was that the outbreak sent about twice as many people to a hospital as a typical salmonella outbreak does. About 20 percent of people with salmonella end up hospitalized; almost 40 percent of those sickened by the Foster Farms-­produced chicken did, Braden says.

Rick Schiller, 51, was one of those unlucky victims. In September the San Jose, Calif., resident woke up at 2 a.m. “I’ve never felt so sick in my life,” he said. In addition to vomiting and diarrhea, he had terrible stomach pain. His symptoms worsened during the next few days, and his abdominal pain became so severe that his fiancée rushed him to an emergency room.

Schiller’s doctor ordered a stool culture, which revealed salmonella Heidelberg. It was one of the strains identified in the Foster Farms outbreak. Schiller had bought two packages of Foster Farms chicken thighs, and his fiancée prepared a meal for him using one of them. The other package, which was still in his freezer, had a plant code that matched one associated with the outbreak

12 Medical Tests and Procedures Even Doctors Claim Are Useless

12 Medical Tests and Procedures Even Doctors Claim Are Useless

Doctors are often criticized for prescribing unneeded tests and procedures that harm more than they help and add to medical costs that could otherwise be avoided. 12 medical tests and procedures now being questioned worldwide as unnecessary and potentially cause — sometimes harmful results to patients. Since a campaign was launched last year, more than 130 tests and procedures have been called into question by 25 medical specialty societies with more than 500,000 member doctors.

“Millions of Americans are increasingly realizing that when it comes to health care, more is not necessarily better,” said Dr. Christine Cassel,  president of the ABIM Foundation. “Through these lists of tests and procedures, we hope to encourage conversations between physicians and patients about what care they truly need.”

United States specialty societies representing more than 500,000 physicians developed lists of Five Things Physicians and Patients Should Question in recognition of the importance of physician and patient conversations to improve care and eliminate unnecessary tests and procedures. See the full list


1. Avoid Inducing Labor or C-Section Before 39 Weeks
Delivery prior to 39 weeks is associated with increased risk of learning disabilities, respiratory problems and other potential risks. While sometimes induction prior to 39 weeks is medically necessary, the recommendation is clear that simply having a mature fetal lung test, in the absence of appropriate clinical criteria, is not an indication for delivery. (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists; American Academy of Family Physicians)

2. Avoid Routine Annual Pap Tests
In average-risk women, routine annual Pap tests (cervical cytology screenings) offer no advantage. (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists)

3. Avoid CT Scans To Evaluate Minor Head Injuries
Approximately 50 percent of children who visit hospital emergency departments with head injuries are given a CT scan. CT scanning is associated with radiation exposure that may escalate future cancer risk. CT technology exposes patients to approximately 100 times the radiation of a standard chest X-ray which itself increases the risk of cancer. The recommendation calls for clinical observation prior to making a decision about needing a CT. (American Academy of Pediatrics)

4. Avoid Stress Tests Using Echocardiographic Images
The recommendation states that there is very little information on the benefit of using stress echocardiography in asymptomatic individuals for the purposes of cardiovascular risk assessment, as a stand-alone test or in addition to conventional risk factors. (American Society of Echocardiography)

5. Avoid Prescribing Type 2 Diabetes Medication To Achieve Tight Glycemic Control
The recommendation states that there is no evidence that using medicine to tightly control blood sugar in older diabetics is beneficial. In fact, using medications to strictly achieve low blood sugar levels is associated with harms, including higher mortality rates. (American Geriatrics Society)

6. Avoid EEGs (electroencephalography) on Patients With Recurrent Headaches.
Recurrent headache is the most common pain problem, affecting up to 20 percent of people. The recommendation states that EEG has no advantage over clinical evaluation in diagnosing headache, does not improve outcomes, and increases costs. (American Academy of Neurology)

7. Avoid Routinely Treating Acid Reflux
Anti-reflux therapy, which is commonly prescribed in adults, has no demonstrated effect in reducing the symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in infants, and there is emerging evidence that it may in fact be harmful in certain situations. (Society of Hospital Medicine)


8. Avoid Lipid Profile Tests
Lipid Profile test checks various parameters of blood, such as cholesterol (good or high density lipoprotein as well as bad or low density lipoprotein) and triglyceride levels. Several scientific papers have proven that people with high so-called “bad” LDL cholesterol live the longest and there is noow a large number of findings that contradict the lipid hypothesis that cholesterol has to be lowered at all.

9. Avoid Mammograms
Mammograms and breast screening have had no impact on breast cancer deaths and have actually been found to increase breast cancer mortality. With toxic radiation, mammogram testing compresses sensitive breast tissue causing pain and possible tissue damage. To make matters worse, the false negative and false positive rates of mammography are a troubling 30% and 89% respectively. Another concern is that many breast cancers occur below the armpits; however, mammography completely misses this axiliary region, viewing only the breast tissue compressed between two plates of glass. Considering these drawbacks, breast thermography should be given closer consideration. Thermography is a non-invasive and non-toxic technique which can detect abnormalities before the onset of a malignancy, and as early as ten years before being recognized by mammography. This makes it much safer and potentially life-saving health test for women who are unknowingly developing abnormalities, as it can take several years for a cancerous tumor to develop and be detected by a mammogram.

10. Avoid PSA Testing
A PSA blood test looks for prostate-specific antigen, a protein produced by the prostate gland. High levels are supposedly associated with prostate cancer. The problem is that the association isn’t always correct, and when it is, the prostate cancer isn’t necessarily deadly. Nearly 20 percent of men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, which sounds scary, but only about 3 percent of all men die from it. The PSA test usually leads to overdiagnosis — biopsies and treatment in which the side effects are impotence and incontinence. Moreover, there is some evidence which suggests that biopsies and treatment actually aggravate prostate cancer. During a needle biopsy, a tumor may need to be punctured several times to retrieve an amount of tissue that’s adequate enough to be screened. It is believed that this repeated penetration may spread cancer cells into the track formed by the needle, or by spilling cancerous cells directly into the bloodstream or lympathic system.

11. Avoid Routine Colorectal Cancer Screening

Colorectal cancer screening often results in unnecessary removal of benign polyps which are of no threat to patients and the risks of their treatment or removal far exceed any benefit. The evidence is insufficient to assess the benefits and harms of computed tomographic colonography and fecal DNA testing as screening modalities for colorectal cancer.

12. Avoid DEXA
Dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA or DXA) in a technique developed in the 1980s that measures, among many things, bone mineral density. The scans can determine bone strength and signs of osteopenia, a possible precursor to osteoporosis. Limitations abound, though. Measurements vary from scan to scan of the same person, as well as from machine to machine. DEXA doesn’t capture the collagen-to-mineral ratio, which is more predictive of bone strength than just mineral density. And higher bone mineral density doesn’t necessarily mean stronger bones, for someone with more bone mass will have more minerals but could have weaker bones.

Meanwhile, the ABIM effort is gaining momentum and more financial support from key players. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation announced it has awarded $2.5 million to “fund medical specialty societies and regional health improvement collaboratives to work in specific communities to raise awareness of potential overuse of medical care.”

“Reducing the overuse of health care resources is a critical part of improving quality of health care in America,” said Dr. Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s president and chief executive officer. “We want to see what can happen when this work is targeted in specific geographic regions and are pleased to help increase the tangible impact of the Choosing Wisely campaign.”
