Corn Pop -
Does it really matter how many times he gets tested? Regardless of the results he's not getting any real punishment.
Multiple fighters are now testing for picograms and not punished.
A picogram is one/trillionth of a gram. Think about that. Think about your 30g protein shake. Take 1/30th of that. Now break that 1 gram down one trillion times. That's a picogram.
What really makes this interesting is what will happen when the testing starts unintentionally detecting contamination that are results of cross contamination. The improvement of detecting substances greater than One trillionith of a gram plus the re-testing of previous samples will most likely being up new positive tests for new substances aswell.My question is who is the authority that draws up the thresholds for the quantities of what's considered positive and banned.
Most of these supplement facilities share or produce other substances that leave traces in their processing,storage, and handling.I believe the rise in Clenbuterol detection(and some cases Ostarine) in particular may be attributed to a by product or cross contamination as Clen can be from the Meat production and that untraceable complex chain of production
Ostarine can be present from other supplements produced by the same company(for example MHP makes OTC protein,nitric,and other recovery and anabolic supplements but also produce banned pro testosterone products like "A-bomb","Sarm-x",and "T -bomb")So these supplements go through the same vats and processing equipment it would be impossible to negate the points of contamination.
Where does the threshold for the amount of a substances begin and who decides what is considered enough to register as positive.
