There seems to be a trend here where threads get turned into huge debates weather a lifter is natural or not. Latest thread being about Simeon Panda. i’m to be blame for that slightly.
But when does natural become unnatural?
1: When the FDA bans something? Using ephedrine was once the norm and was widely available, but now it is illegal and people say that using ephedrine makes you unnatural.
Do you become unnatural if you use something that isn’t synthesized from nature?
If so, ephedrine is from a plant?
And then on on the flip side, GH is synthesized but its already produced by our body and your just adding ‘extra’ you your body. So why is that considered unnatural?
Then this brings up ‘blood doping’ re administering your own blood to increase hemoglobin levels. This is widely considered unnatural, but what is more natural than your own blood?
If they FDA banned whey would that then make a lifter unnatural?
