Anthony Bosch, Biogenesis Founder, to Plead Guilty

Meanwhile, all over south Florida billboards can be seen hawking testosterone as the fountain of youth.

Anthony Bosch, the founder of anti-aging clinic Biogenesis of America, has reached a deal with the government that will require him to fully cooperate with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the DEA, attorney Guy Lewis said.

Just don't let anyone else in your family touch it, or they might sprout ass hair and a third boob.

Seriously, the disclaimers at the end of those commercials are cringe-worthy.

I personally take the (apparently unpopular) approach of letting Nature take its course. It's curious how "doctors" have fabricated these conditions and syndromes that promote drugs that magically treat them, like "Low-T" and "E.D." both of which I characterize as just plain getting old.

Artificially boosting the production of testosterone signals the body to quit bothering so if you stop taking the stuff you start turning into your grandmother.

But at least this isn't baseball's biggest issue, expanded rosters are, so maybe they'll just forget about this one day soon, huh?

The disclaimers at the end of most med commercials do the same.

One of the fun things about testosterone is that it's often applied as a cream and it doesn't soak in right away and can get on people who come in contact with you. Testosterone cream can cause breast growth in men and body hair growth in women, so if testosterone treatment goes balls up you can end up with a man with big boobs and his wife the gorilla.
