1) Anti-Aging Clinics and Other Fraudulent Medical Practices:
Today, you can find numerous clinics in the United States and worldwide that claim to be clinics that specialize in anti-aging, age-management, and wellness age management. The main targets of such clinics are young men who want to be administered steroids that they weren’t prescribed by their doctors, professional athletes who need a dose of their favorite anabolic steroid, and wealthy individuals in their 50s who want to look more youthful.
Are These Businesses Genuine or Fraudulent?
These anti-aging clinics, age-management clinics, and other clinics of a similar name are clever frauds. Those businesses are profit-only businesses that don’t care about their patients. Did you know that your private insurance company or your public insurance company won’t pay you for the treatments you undergo at these anti-aging clinics?
You’ve read that right. That’s because these treatments are viewed by endocrinology specialists as something that only a lunatic would allow himself to be administered. Endocrinologists worldwide warn people that steroid administered in various anti-aging clinics doesn’t belong to the scope of legal and safe medical practice!
Anti-Aging Clinics Properly don't Regulate:
These anti-aging and aging-management clinics properly don't regulate. Adverse medical effects that are almost always a part of treatment at those clinics usually go unreported. Also, some of these age-management and anti-aging clinics obtain contracts from their patients through which they stipulate them and make them unable to report adverse effects to regulatory agencies in the United States.
2) The Dangers of “Hormone Replacement Therapy”:
Anti-aging clinics sometimes administer patients with various types of Testosterone, such as testosterone gels. One of the most popular gels you can find at these age-management clinics is Androgel. However, this testosterone gel has dangerous side effects because it promotes violent behavior in people who consume it.
Androgel also invokes mania and psychotic outbreaks. Did you know that a famous pro-wrestler called Chris Benoit killed his wife and children after taking this dangerous drug? These hormone replacement therapies have serious side effects, and you should stay away from them!
Dangers of Testosterone:
Besides the dangerous side effects of Testosterone replacement therapies, there are also dangers in taking testosterone. Did you know that taking testosterone causes side effects such as sleep apnea, atrial fibrillation, increased risk of heart attack and stroke, high blood pressure, and reduced levels of good cholesterol?
Did you know that taking oral anabolic steroids such as Anavar can seriously damage your liver and lead to liver failure?
3) Deluged By The Pharmaceutical Industry:
Over the past decade or even more, we deluged the pharmaceutical industry that makes anabolic steroids. Through their advertisements that promote various testosterone creams, gels, and injections. Pharmaceutical companies claim that these products are the fountain of youth and that there are no side effects to taking them at all.
However, various studies have shown these testosterone creams, gels, and injections. All of this does not affect increasing testosterone levels in older men.
4) Human Growth Hormone Fraud:
Another fraudulent product that the pharmaceutical industry and anti-aging clinics con their customers to purchase is Human Growth Hormone. Various studies, especially one study conducted at Stanford University, have concluded that taking Human Growth Hormone supplements doesn’t have any effects on improving exercise capacity and strength capacity.
