Quote Of The Day
“The NOP calcitonin experiment came to an ignominious end in late 2012 when, after receiving an NOP email encouraging him to use calcitonin, NOP athlete Dorian UIrey apparently brought to the attention of the NOP coaches the salient fact that research had established an increased cancer risk associated with using the drug. This brought a quick retraction email from NOP Assistant Coach Pete Julian, withdrawing the advice to use calcitonin … Pete Julian’s retraction email prompted immediate reaction from Dathan Ritzenhein, who seven minutes later plaintively inquired, ‘Is this some kind of joke? I have been taking this for the last four years!’ Unfortunately for Dathan it was not a joke. And, unfortunately for Galen Rupp he apparently did not even get the message … as Rupp’s medical records indicate he filled a prescription from Dr. Brown for calcitonin … well after the emailed warning from Pete Julian.”
