A Miami Clinic Supplies Drugs to Sports' Biggest Names


http://www.miaminewtimes.com/2013-01-31 ... ames/full/

Open the neat spreadsheet and scroll past the listing of local developers, prominent attorneys, and personal trainers. You'll find a lengthy list of nicknames: Mostro, Al Capone, El Cacique, Samurai, Yukon, Mohamad, Felix Cat, and D.R.

Then check out the main column, where their real names flash like an all-star roster of professional athletes with Miami ties: San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera, Oakland A's hurler Bartolo Colón, pro tennis player Wayne Odesnik, budding Cuban superstar boxer Yuriorkis Gamboa, and Texas Rangers slugger Nelson Cruz. There's even the New York Yankees' $275 million man himself, Alex Rodriguez, who has sworn he stopped juicing a decade ago.

Read further and you'll find more than a dozen other baseball pros, from former University of Miami ace Cesar Carrillo to Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal to Washington Nationals star Gio Gonzalez. Notable coaches are there too, including UM baseball conditioning guru Jimmy Goins.

The names are all included in an extraordinary batch of records from Biogenesis, an anti-aging clinic tucked into a two-story office building just a hard line drive's distance from the UM campus. They were given to New Times by an employee who worked at Biogenesis before it closed last month and its owner abruptly disappeared. The records are clear in describing the firm's real business: selling performance-enhancing drugs, from human growth hormone (HGH) to testosterone to anabolic steroids.


Bye bye dickhead.

Speaking of heads, here's a blast from the past. Athletes always seem to be on the cutting edge in their search for the Fountain of Youth.
http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ted-williams-frozen-head-batting-practice-cryogenics-lab-book-article-1.381985

Workers at an Arizona cryonics facility mutilated the frozen head of baseball legend Ted Williams - even using it for a bizarre batting practice, a new tell-all book claims.
In "Frozen," Larry Johnson, a former exec at the Alcor Life Extension Foundation in Scottsdale, Ariz., graphically describes how The Splendid Splinter" was beheaded, his head frozen and repeatedly abused.

The book, out Tuesday from Vanguard Press, tells how Williams' corpse became "Alcorian A-1949" at the facility, where bodies are kept suspended in liquid nitrogen in case future generations learn how to revive them.

Johnson writes that in July 2002, shortly after the Red Sox slugger died at age 83, technicians with no medical certification gleefully photographed and used crude equipment to decapitate the majors' last .400 hitter.

Williams' severed head was then frozen, and even used for batting practice by a technician trying to dislodge it from a tuna fish can.

The chief operating officer of Alcor for eight months before becoming a whistleblower in 2003, Johnson wrote his book while in hiding, fearful for his life.

He told the Daily News then he had received death threats and was moving from safehouse to safehouse. Johnson plans to come out of the shadows Tuesday, with his book and an appearance on ABC's "Nightline."

Johnson said he wired himself with an audio recorder for his last three months at Alcor, stole internal records and took gruesome photographs that are reproduced in the book.

The book describes other atrocities at Alcor's facility in Arizona, including the dismembering of live dogs that were injected with chemicals in experiments, and a situation in which human blood and toxic chemicals were dumped into a parking lot sewer drain.

It also also details suspicious circumstances involving the bodies of two people who are frozen in steel cylinders at Alcor: gay rights activist John Dentinger and Dora Kent, an elderly woman whose son, Saul Dent, gave Alcor lots of money.

Nothing in the book is as gruesome as Johnson's descriptions of what happened to Williams' body after it was sent to Alcor at the direction of the Williams' son John Henry Williams, who died of leukemia in 2004.

In 2003, The News reported that Buzz Hamon, the ballplayer's close friend and former director of the Ted Williams Museum in Hernando, Fla., sneaked into Alcor with the help of a mortician friend.

Hamon said he was "appalled" by the conditions there, where Williams' body and more than 50 others were stored in steel tanks alongside cardboard boxes and junk. Hamon died in 2004, reportedly committing suicide.

Johnson writes that holes were drilled in Williams' severed head for the insertion of microphones, then frozen in liquid nitrogen while Alcor employees recorded the sounds of Williams' brain cracking 16 times as temperatures dropped to -321 degrees Fahrenheit.

Johnson writes that the head was balanced on an empty can of Bumble Bee tuna to keep it from sticking to the bottom of its case.

Johnson describes watching as another Alcor employee removed Williams' head from the freezer with a stick, and tried to dislodge the tuna can by swinging at it with a monkey wrench.

The technician, no .406 hitter like the baseball legend, missed the can with several swings of the wrench and smacked Williams' head directly, spraying "tiny pieces of frozen head" around the room. :eek:

Johnson accuses the company of joking morbidly about mailing Williams' thawing remains back to his family if his son didn't pay his outstanding debt to the company.

Reprints of invoices show that Alcor president John Lemler charged $120,000 for the honor of "suspending" Teddy Ballgame's body.

A former paramedic, Johnson first blew the whistle on Alcor in a 2003 Sports Illustrated article about Williams' stored body.

He drew criticism at the time for an aborted attempt to sell photos online purportedly showing Williams' corpse.

Johnson said he hopes his book will help fulfill the wishes Williams expressed in his will - that his body be cremated and the ashes "sprinkled at sea off the coast of Florida, where the water is very deep."

Could have started another thread, but see its being reported that Ray Lewis requested some PED to speed up his recovery in October.

The drug of choice...... Wait for it..... Deer antler spray. :eek:

SI: Alabama players may have used banned substance before ’12 national title

Posted by Ben Kercheval on January 29, 2013, 1:45 PM EST

AP
With the Super Bowl less than a week away, the process of coming up with storylines — both good and bad — about the players and coaches participating in the big event is underway. Specifically, there’s a new angle for Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.

Sports Illustrated published a feature Tuesday documenting Lewis’ possible use of banned substances, specifically an extract called IGF-1 from deer antlers, to recover from his triceps injury in October.

The company who reportedly sent Lewis the goods is called S.W.A.T.S., also known as “Sports with Alternatives to Steroids.” It’s about as shady as one would think: run by two men “out of the back of a gym near Birmingham.”

The college connection comes early on in the story when one of the S.W.A.T.S reps, Christopher Key, makes a pitch in a hotel room to a group of Alabama players right before the 2012 BCS championship game against LSU. The story specifically mentions defensive end Quinton Dial and linebacker Alex Watkins.

And then Key passed out his remedy for the frequencies: stickers, which he calls chips, bearing holograms of a pyramid. Key told the players that on game day they should place the chips on three acupuncture points — one on the inside of each wrist before they tape their arms (the chips also come embedded in bracelets), and one over the heart. “It’s going to help your heart have so much more energy,” he said. “Come the fourth quarter, you guys will not be gassed at all.”

Key also introduces the players to the antler spray and “negatively charged” water, among other products. The Tide’s coaching staff was apparently unaware this meeting took place. Key is also said to have given a treatment to an LSU player before the 2010 Senior Bowl.

If Alabama wasn’t already aware of the story — it’s not exactly a new topic — they are now. What action, if any, will be taken by either the school or the NCAA is unknown yet. There is mention of banned substances – IGF-1 is also considered one by the NCAA — being used by Watkins in the title game against the Tigers.

It’s not your traditional HGH or steroids, but it is an interesting feature on what could be considered a performance enhancer. Point being, don’t be surprised if universities pull out their NCAA binders to give players a refresher.

Lesson No. 1? If a guy in a hotel room offers you deer-antler spray, it’s a good idea not to take it from him under any circumstance.

This thread is legit. There are like 5 different stories and a detailed report on the dimemberment and abuse of ted williams head.

Everyone knows rodriguez is on something. Nothing really new there.

Ray Lewis is a pos. This is just another chink in his phony armor.

Most people around college football have wondered wether or not ala juices its players not surprised to hear the allegations.

IGF-1 is made in liver in response to HGH release. Side effects can be crying jags and or strange body undulations and hip thrusting gyrations.

Right now you have past Miami baseball players, Cesar Carrillo and Yasmani Grandal, and Miami's strength and conditioning coach for the baseball team, Jimmy Goins.

They Yankee's are reportedly looking to void A-Rod's remaining 5 years and 114 million he's due. Players union is too strong to let that happen but they have options if they just want to move him.

Haven't heard the Alabama rumors but that would be sweet!

Please, please be true.

Although I did see where it said he was associated with other SEC schools and then listed Auburn, Bama and LSU. Until I have proof that we aren't on that list I will reserve judgment. :lol:

Reders' Digest Condensed Post >>
HGH must be refrigerated from factory to muscle-site,
mixed(activated) on site, and injected intramuscularly immediately.
No sprays, ointments, or pills work. It's a medical grade hormone .
Real HGH therapy costs $1,000 - $1,400 per month. {Great place
for some I-net $10 cost, $600 sell price scam.}

************************************************************************************
To work, HGH has to have the molecular configuration compatible
with actual body-produced HGH . Then the HGH "substitute" has to be synthesized to stoichiometrically co-operate with human biological
reactions.

So such chemistry requires the means and standards of big Pharma
Labs that are strongly government regulated. Also, to fulfill the above
biochemistry, the HGH must have continuously refrigerated storage
and shipping/handling. HGH must be injected intramuscularly, daily.

Any sprays, tablets, ointments for HGH are bogus, a waste of money.
But making money is the reason cheaper ways are sold. Real HGH
treatment costs $1,000 - $1,400 per month. The Mexico stuff can
slip by customs but it usually is fake: no harm, no good .

True HGH treatment is cold-stored in a bi-mix syringe ... where at
point of use the "patient" breaks a mid-barrier within the syringe
that allows a liquid to flow forward into a "flakes" chamber where
"flakes" dissolve to create the "active hormone". For max-effect that
1 ml must be totally injected immediately ... although it can be
stored in refrigeration for just 24 hours. Then injected. This is the
"truest effect" way.

Oh, the "pseudo-more-natural" route sellers will state that the
"inject-only" route is the BIg-Pharma + Big Medicine's conspiracy to
charge for excessive profit. Remember, true hormone replacement
is a medical treatment for patients devoid or making too little of
their own needed hormone. Synthetic HGH was created primarily
to treat "Dwarfism".

Yes it will make any "doser" better physically, mentally, happier ....
... "Rowdy" PM me where I can get some.
