    @WarLord, your comment makes me think twice about using CB.

    Might wait until it's atleast approved for acne which should be in 2 years.

    Drugs that have an effect on genes are always going to be incredibly risky, we've had 3.8 billion years of field testing, engineering a better human being is going to be the greatest achievement of human kind given how complex biology is. Which is also why I think we should all start "passing the collection plate" for research into human biology.

    Turinabol was a failure of the GDR system. It explains, why they had success mostly with women only. I was taking as much as 75 mg/day - and it did virtually nothing. Except that I felt my nipples (estrogen!).

    Where have you heard these stories? It's a dubious claim to make the following argument. Here is the formula "I've heard" + "add in claim" = truth (when it doesn't really count as even anecdotal evidence.

    I think in this case both the poster and the man in the link that was sent to YouTube are genuine in their concern for people and also their belief in what they say. But this is the case of one man using self anecdotal evidence a d extrapolating it into an indisputable cause and effect. To show how this works I could turn the argument into stating that poor eye sight leads to increased SARMs use.

    Basically just because Events A and B happen together does not mean A and B have any connection to each other. What is a well known fact is that no matter what you do in life some people have flawed eyesight that will continue to get worse as time progresses. It's also an accepted fact that everyone will lose the ability to read without the aid of glasses as a natural and irreversible part of the aging process (if someone doesn't lose some eyesight with age than they contain a genetic mutation which in this case might seem to be an advantage where most genetic mutations cause more harm than good). So unless you read it in a medical journal and the article read has been heavily cited (which is the most relevant way to determine if there is a consensus in that field of experts) than I would approach a claim with a lot of skepticism.

    The only pharmaceutical reason ephedrine could in theory contribute to hair loss would not be the hair loss related to male pattern baldness which I think this topic is being aimed at discussing in this case.

    For instance extreme stress can cause hair loss (literally go bald). Ephedrine could exacerbate the pronpblem by increasing anxiety in some people. I know I take adderall for ADHD and most stimulants have the opposite effect on me. But things like caffeine and ephedrine work differently and I feel those like anyone else. So have felt how they can cause anxiety where I haad previously only felt mildly anxious. (Note: effects on anxiety and energy levels vary greatly from individual to individual).

    PS: this is a bit old of a thread but it still comes up on the first page of googling so people will inevitably still read this.

    This is long but considering the statement it relates to there was no way around it.

    I'm not really sure what you mean by the third paragraph. What do you mean by "we'be had 3.8 billion years of field testing"? Are you referring to natural selection? I would first point out that multicellular life has only been around for approximately the last 500 million years. Which means before that most of Earth's history consists of algae, plankton, bacteria, etc. (and ones that aren't particularly complex unicellular life).

    If you were to make a calendar where the last 13.8 billion years (approx age of universe) would fit into a 365 day per year calendar popularized by Carl Sagan (I don't know if he himself invented the comparison) than the universe began at 0000 01 January. The Milky Way Galaxy formed circa Match 16th.

    The Milly Way Galaxy first formed into the disk like galaxy we would recognize around May 12th.

    Our solar system formed September 2nd. Oldest known rock on a Earth would be from September 6th. First life formed On September 14th (recorded in fossil records anyway). But several theories suggest life may have formed several times on Earth only to go extinct before Earth became stable enough for it to not go extinct. First complex unicellular life began on Dec 5th. To make things easier here.

    Modern Era (about last 500 years) would fall on 23:59:59

    So drugs that target specific genes are so new that they simply would not register on this scale in a way that would be comprehendible. There is no history to base on whether drugs targeting certain genes will always be incredibly risky (or to even say they are incredibly risky now).

    Engineering better humans has already been taking place for thousands of years. Until very, very recently propagation of the species was based on survival of the fittest (not in an animalistic way). But modern medicine did not exist until the last 125 years or so. Before that only human beings that could compete in the world to just survive would make it to the age of reproduction. Hence until modern medicine arrived humans a have always been engineering ourselves to ever more perfected beings. We've been doing so even more with other species of fauna and flora to produce the best food sources through breeding programs. The only difference now is we have a real possibility to do these things in a controlled manner and get the desired outcome instead of continually rolling the dice and hope the proper genes mix (why I never understood being against GMOs when it's been around for thousands of years).

    The last comment you made is not necessary. I'm unaware of the country you life in or your educational background (and I don't mean any of this in a disparaging way but want to educate you in current affairs) but human biology is incredibly well known. The biggest obstacle to doing anything with that knowledge is from people who have ethical concerns about modifying humans or using things like embryonic stem cells, etc. the best estimates place our current technological level about 500-1500 years behind where we could be had religion not developed in the manner in which it did and separated itself from science sooner. But the human body is well known and there are lots of well known ways to improve it or treat diseased bodies. It just moves at a frustratingly slow pace in the western world due to Christianity playing a big part in people's ethical concerns. I see a huge paradigm shift occurring however in the nor so far future when other cultures which have no objections to the ethical concerns start to outdo the United States and Europe (im mainly looking at China and India).

    So I'm not sure what you meant by a lot of what you wrote. But hopefully this helps clear up quite a bit. Especially the part where about needing to study human biology more. There is so much known about human biology that it's imposssible for any one person to comprehend the amount of information known.
