    Triple j ran a story today on the hack program about the apparent dangers of using bodybuilding supplements.

    There was an unfortunate tragedy back in June when Meegan Hefford died as a result of using to much protein, the fact is that she had a genetic condition called urea cycle disorder that meant her body was unable to handle the protein she was taking and ammonia built up in her blood leading to her death.

    This is obviously a rare circumstance and the vast majority can and do use supplements without any problems, however that hasn't stopped this fear mongering story.
    I wonder how much more fear mongering is to come.


    Here is the link if anyone is interested.
