Testosterone Exposed to Light?

Hi, so i am kind of curious. Why you should keep testosterone away from light? What would happen if i left it in light for a long period of time? Would it be damaged completely or at least to some extent? Thanks.

It becomes combustible. Through a special chemical reaction, called nuclear fusion, the Testosterone is “burned” releasing an enormous amount of energy in the form of light and heat.

You remember the Gremlins movies, where the Mogwai were exposed to light.

Most things get effected by long periods of direct exposure to UV in sunlight. Whether the testosterone degrades, or the oil starts to polyermerise and thicken and eventually dry out, who knows? Rubber seal on a vial is also more likely to perish too.
