Health Canada Issues Warning on Methyl-1-Testosterone

 

(Ottawa, Ontario – February 23, 2006) – Health Canada recently issued an advisory to warn consumers not to use supplements containing methyl-1-testosterone, including the product M1T Andro Technologies. Methyl-1-testosterone is prohibited in sport as an anabolic agent under the 2006 World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List. 

Methyl-1-testosterone, like all anabolic steroids, can cause serious adverse reactions, including reduced fertility, hardening of the arteries, liver damage and enlargement or tenderness of male breasts or nipples.  Methyl-1-testosterone is a controlled substance in Canada, and there are currently no authorized products on the Canadian market that contain this substance. 

Athletes subject to doping control should avoid using products which contain prohibited substances. Please remember that athletes always bear the ultimate responsibility for the products they ingest.
