Which made Canseco’s second benefactor — Mike Wallace — all the more important. John Hamlin, a producer at 60 Minutes , had gotten a tip about Canseco’s book from a friend at another network. (The friend couldn’t act on it because his employer was a Major League Baseball rights holder.) Hamlin began calling baseball people and confirming the details. Almost no one would talk on the record, but they suggested that Canseco’s account was true. One of the few allegations Hamlin couldn’t verify was Canseco’s insistence that Roger Clemens was juicing.
These latest miraculous gains by Thibaudeau are a little contradictory because, while he’s said repeatedly on their forum that he could get much bigger if he wanted to, he’s also been saying that he doesn’t want to/can’t because of health issues (and I believe he also said that he only took steroids experiementally for a little while when he was a teenager). He clearly must have changed his mind, however, because he’s just claimed to have gained more muscle in 6 weeks than many drug-free bodybuilders of his stature gain in a lifetime of training. He’s doing very well – he’s now carrying over 40 pounds more muscle than the world’s best drug-free bodybuilding champions of his height (which is also well over twice as much muscle as they’ve managed to build).
Hello Karen, my doctors have me taking Prednisone daily, and for the last three years. I have been taking it because they use to have me taking another drug called, Theophylline, but I had to wean off of Theophylline, which landed me in the hospital for two weeks, due to making my heart beat too fast. In the past, I had suffered from Congestive Heart Failure, so my heart has a tendency to beat faster than the normal, and Theophylline, increased the beats all the more. But, it did seem that they replaced Theophylline with another drug, which is the steroid called, Prednisone. I've been taking it daily for three years now. Theophylline treats symptoms of asthma, and other lung problems, such as emphysema, and on-going bronchitis. This medicine is a bronchodilator. I am not sure if it replaces the job of Prednisone, but please ask your doctor about it. Now that my heart seems much stronger, since my Heart Failure occurred three years ago, I may ask my doctor to put me back on it again.
