I’m guest blogging over at Wages of Wins today. On what? More HGH!
Earlier this month, wrote a post about how human growth hormone (HGH) does not improve athletic performance. The response I received was overwhelming. Links came from everywhere: message boards, blog posts, and personal e-mails. What was surprising was not that people found the topic interesting, but the number of people who openly continued to believe HGH enhances performance with ZERO evidentiary backing. I have no problem with disagreements, but to choose to believe that HGH has performance-enhancing qualities based on what we know is silly. I’d like to go through some common objections to my post and then offer from general thoughts on deferring to experts.
