This is a serious business guys, the photos below are actual photos of a Recreational Bodybuilder and a shot of Underground Lab AAS that went horribly wrong.
But understand this is NOT limited to UGL supply issues
The first reported complication of the hypodermic injection of medication was reported by Dr. Charles Hunter, a London surgeon, in 1865.
Two of his patients who received multiple morphine injections subsequently developed subcutaneous abscesses at the injection sites.
At the time of his report, there was no sterilization of medications, syringes, or needles.
It was not until 1867, twelve years after Dr. Wood introduced hypodermic injection of medication, that Dr. Joseph Lister published his work on surgical antisepsis and germs.
Strangely, complications of hypodermic injection must have been exceedingly uncommon because Dr. Hunter, whose patients developed the first reported complications, said that “if the site of the injection was continually varied and the puncture was made with care and celerity, there was no fear of abscess or diffuse inflammation.”
By 1880, complications from the technique were beginning to be recognized. In that year, Dr. H. H. Kane of the United States surveyed physicians worldwide and found all were seeing patients who suffered infectious complications due to hypodermic injection of medications.
It was not until 1885 that the complications of this widely practiced procedure were acknowledged by the medical profession.
Today, the incidence of developing a complication from IM injections ranges from 0.4 percent to 19.3 percent of patients receiving the IM injection of a medication
DO NOT let this happen to you..
I have made this course free for all as a ” public service” to our Tribe..
