We report the results of a recent survey of the concentration of natural estrogens (17β-estradiol, 17α-estradiol, estrone, estriol) and the synthetic estrogen, 17α-ethynylestradiol in representative animal wastes and sewage treatment plant (STP) effluents in the Waikato region of New Zealand. Dairy farm effluent samples showed high levels of estradiol (19–1360 ng/L) and its breakdown product estrone (41–3123 ng/L) compared with piggery or goat farm effluents. The combined load for these estrogens (excluding β epimer) varied from 60 to > 4000 ng/L. The piggery effluent provided the lowest total estrogen load (46 ng/L), with estrone accounting for nearly 60% of the measured estrogens in this sample. The synthetic analogue, 17α-ethynylestradiol was detected only in one wastewater treatment plant sample, albeit at trace level. An estrogen receptor competitive binding assay was used to test the biological activity of the samples and confirmed that most agricultural waste samples contain high levels of estrogenic compounds. The potential of these wastes to cause endocrine disruption in the receiving ecosystem is unknown at present.
Jeez I have never popped a roid but have some of those problems. Good riddance to Mr Big, in more ways than one. His death should help his anti Roid campaign one would think.
I read somewhere that a large percentage of the WWF (?) and WCW wrestlers are dead. Many before the age of 50.
That female nigger US Olympic world champion with the big earrings and double bunger second name died some years ago aged about 34. Obviously a drug cheat but I do not think the medal was stripped from her. Lance Strongarm, drug cheat, still alive. It is a shame Arnie lived on, he was a poster child for all roids abusers. Cheat, win, get rich and become big in politics too. In the USA nobody cares how you win, as long as you win.
