Testosterone: How Much is Enough?

If you've been following all the stories about the Russians and their manipulation of specimens and lab results for their Olympic teams, you might be interested in this informative video from Time Magazine. 

There is no doubt that anabolic steroids improve athletic performance. For some, if 50mg works, then why not 500? For virtually every drug, there's a therapeutic threshold. But, how much is enough?

In this video, a physician attempts to address the question of hypogonadism (low T-values) and supplementation. The counter point is offered by someone from the industry with a direct financial benefit from selling more product.

We do know that there are harmful side effects. But, how harmful? In the presence of cancer, steroids can turn up the activity.

Watch the video and you can draw your own conclusions.
