Some a completely different human growth hormone.
Very often misused even abused not just -- athletes.
The drug companies are indeed cashing in one point four billion dollars -- of sales of HGH human growth Coleman in just in the United States last year.
-- -- -- -- A lot of human who's Coleman won't -- four billion dollars worth really.
I think when the try to agree with you on this one we -- we -- -- out overflow charts but -- hear his monthly on this there's -- -- I'm -- Here's the problem the federal the FDA gets involved back in 2005.
And they say this to me illicit sales of this drug going on.
Being imported from overseas.
You know the black market the -- market here's what we're gonna do we're gonna clamp down on that so the drug companies get involved -- the sales of this drug from 2005.
Are up 69%.
Over the same period your average prescription drug is only up 12%.
Why because they're stepping into the gap.
Open what -- only talking about here this drug.
Is unhealthy -- -- -- is no evidence that it that it that it prevents Beijing where a lot of people think it's used.
For athletes that are not supposed to be using it to get everybody.
Let let's domestically at the docket it's not a steroid.
It's not a standard this is human growth hormone which -- body produces quite naturally something when you're young person might correct OK so we're don't have the side effects of steroids correct so -- -- the negative side effects of the stuff -- is -- performance and answer is that.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But I'm not on the -- -- saying today it should be restricted.
I say as usual I want doctors to be responsible I think the point here is that the FDA doesn't know what they're doing.
They crackdown on illicit drugs meanwhile that with the pharmaceutical company stepping to the gap.
I'm not saying the pharmaceutical companies shouldn't meet market demand what else are they gonna do what are they -- that's why should we were gonna -- great.
But I do think that doctors have to prescribe responsibly -- I don't think what this drug is used properly what would you responded full.
I would prescribe it for some deficiency of deficiency of lost children.
That an Obama warned aren't quite right what what will not just couldn't believe that we showed for a reason.
But -- -- the children that are born with actual metabolic deficiencies.
In growth hormone deficiencies or adults that developed that problem that don't have enough if I think even the debate comes as you know people -- arguing -- Stewart should we take it could actually tell you our growth hormone levels are down.
But studies have not shown we should take.
If I did take it what would happen to you get both.
I -- yeah I want it look I'm not -- -- under attempted but why shouldn't I be able to do that if I wish to.
Like to sit in the medical literature all kidding aside I want them to study it.
Over a period of time in small doses to see if it has a positive impact and what the side effects are totally unproven at this point.
Aren't as big market one point four billion that's a lot of money for that specific home and going up -- and up exactly and Summers is unhappy with few I just wanna say -- got -- -- -- If she takes hold on HUH well she -- a book and it's one of the many thank you you -- about it really.
One more point one you can test for it you know by the -- -- -- contest for the contest -- -- But I don't agree with her on this whether it's just not being used responsibly determined to fight with somebody is yeah I would never part of -- I've talked to Bob Siegel think how much indeed --
