Do you have a lawsuit?
California has been a hotspot for the health and exercise industry. Thousands of people looking to improve their health have discovered the benefits of taking dietary supplements. In their efforts to lose weight, shed fat, and build muscle, however, many consumers fail to realize that the products they take may pose significant health risks and complications. Steroids and so-called “prohormones,” for instance, have been widely known to cause a number of adverse health consequences, including some potentially fatal complications.
Although the FDA has worked in collaboration with other government agencies to curtail the use of dangerous steroids in the United States, there are still several legal forms of steroids and prohormones available on the market. These products function by altering the existing hormones of users and can produce significant muscle gains. Unfortunately, they have also been linked to adverse effects such as:
- Liver damage
- Psychiatric illness and depression
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Renal failure
Even consumers who purchase dietary and bodybuilding supplements without the intention of using steroids may face these risks. As reported by ABC News, a national study indicated that as many as 25% of legal supplements purchased at U.S. retailers contained some amounts of steroids. There is also evidence that nearly 12% of products contained banned stimulants. As the FDA does not regulate dietary supplements in the same manner as medications, these dangerous products can easily slip onto the public market, placing consumers at risk of unknowingly taking steroids or prohormones and suffering serious injuries.
