Man Fuel

Mostly because there's not much else to talk about, here's some more interesting facts about Testosterone testing and the like courtesy of the ever-amazing

A study of nearly 4000 male athletes reported the median T/E ratio to 1/1 with 99 percent of the men having a ratio less than 5.6/1. Another sample of about 5000 male athletes found the mean ratio to be 1.5/1.

However, there are documented cases of non-doping athletes with T/E ratios greater than 6/1; as a result, additional testing is required to determine the etiology of the elevated ratio.

This whole ordeal is really starting to depress me.
