Underground Lab High Bacteria Count And False Claim On Content Of Their Underground Steroids

BOCA IVANOVA B.B. SKOPJE R. MACEDONIA -- We have the opportunity to review a report from Germany. It covers the analysis of different anabolic steroids and ancillary drug products at the Center for Preventative Doping Research in Cologne. All of the samples analyzed in this report were obtained during police raids of three illegal dealers of anabolic steroids. One underground lab asiapharma.com aka eurohormones.com stands out from others for it's high bacteria count and false claims on the label. While this is not a set of tests from the United States (where most readers of this column reside), I believe the results are still very relevant, especially when you consider that Western Europe is known for less stringent controls and the greater availability of legitimate steroid drugs than the United States. In other words, the results should have been at least as bad had they been conducted in the United States.
Included in this article are the results of the study separated by drug type. I felt upon review that it allowed a somewhat interesting view of the “relative confidence” one could have for a particular type of steroid or drug, at least according to the numbers in this small report. It is important to emphasize that while a fairly large sample for this type of analysis, 70 drug products taken from three dealers is not sufficient to prove any specific market trend, overall counterfeit prevalence or brand legitimacy. Still, as we find in the results, counterfeiting is still very much alive and well and is an issue Germans have to deal with just as do Americans. We would also like to draw your attention to high bacteria count in Asia Pharma Stanobolic Injection Stanozolol. This product is not safe for human use due to high bacteria count.
