Look on the bright side, assuming that's illegal we'll be able to tell who's cheating when they look like He-Man.

Recently, a whippet named Wendy became very popular on the internet. She has a similar myostatin mutation which causes her to be very muscular. Just yesterday she was on the Today Show.

You would not like to see a picture of me when I was 335 lbs. My problem was nothing to do with drug use it was just over eating. I kept eating the way I did when I was racing after I quit training. Now I am a svelt 255lbs.
