I think the new supplement fads are really playing a big part of all these great athletes just dropping dead all of a sudden. The old school Jack Pardee/Bear Bryant guys used cave-man logic when it came to hydration and understanding what your body needs to work well when stressed but they didn't seem to kill anyone back then. Today these kids are pumping all kinds of herbs and micronutrient crud (to give them the edge) into their system that we did not have back then. I used to be a competitive powerlifter and I shudder to think about some of the garbage I was ingesting. I took some legal products that have since been banned. There is still a ton of stuff out there that has not been tested as well as drugs. Herbs and supplements need more control, testing and regulation I feel. I really think that has a lot to do with this. Very sad.
