Sylvester Stallone and the Human Growth Hormone Problem
If you watched the RAMBO and ROCKY series then you would definitely know who Sylvester Stallone is. But if not, then you should know that he is an aging actor whose use and recommendation of HGH to the public even caught the attention of the United States Congress in one of their hearings regarding HGH. Here is one of statement of his regarding HGH:
Human Growth Hormone to me is so important for a sense of well-being when you get older, everyone older than 40 would be wise to investigate HGH because it improves the quality of your life so much. Mark my words for it.
The problem with what Mr. Stallone is doing is that he is feeding an already misinformed public more wrong information about a highly misunderstood treatment. He sells HGH to people over 40 claiming that it is a potent anti-aging tool, when in truth and in fact the FDA even prohibits its' sale as an anti-aging drug. Simply put, it is illegal to sell HGH for anti-aging purposes. There is no doubt that he has used it, and uses himself as living proof of the effects of HGH, but he may be on other treatments and could have gone through cosmetic surgery. The point is that he is deceiving people who see him as an endorser that one can trust.
It would have been more appropriate if he had given the proper information about HGH itself. This could have included its correct uses, its' possible side-effects, and other items that could have been used as a guide for people looking into HGH. On the other hand he could also have given suggestions on how to beat aging naturally through proper diet and exercise, and by simply living a happy and stress free life. As a celebrity it is easier for him to reach out to people and help them improve their lives. Unfortunately, with what he is doing, he is asking people to both waste their earnings and to put their lives on the line because of the possible harmful effects of taking in HGH for all the wrong reasons.
HGH is not harmful when used properly. If it is used correctly for conditions that are approved by the FDA, it is actually very helpful. This is why those in the medical profession who have read and seen what Mr. Stallone has said about HGH are disappointed that he has helped spread these lies about HGH.
The large companies selling Human Growth Hormone have made more than enough money already, approximately US$2 Billion. Mr. Stallone and company should stop selling HGH to the public for monetary gain. It has affected and harmed not only the aging population of the world, but has wrongly put HGH on the spot as an ineffective way to try and regain lost youth. HGH is ineffective for anti-aging because it was not meant to be used in such a way. Mr. Stallone should get his facts straight and should not allow himself to be a pawn in such a deadly game that includes risking people's lives.
