Ultimately, the following scenarios remain plausible in regards to Colabello, oral turinabol and the MLB positive drug tests: The athletes in question took oral turinabol after purchasing it online as part of a doping regiment that had worked in the past, believing the window of detection was still narrow. There could be contamination coming from dietary supplements, or their ingredients, that resulted in trace findings for the long term DHCMT metabolite in the various athlete urine samples. Finally, there is the theory that a common genetic anomaly, or another substance related to DHCMT that is present in the environment, could produce the same long-term DHCMT metabolite used for detection in trace amounts in some athletes—remote possibilities that have yet to be demonstrated.
The pressure to perform in high school and college sports continues to increase as student-athletes compete for scholarships and chase the dream of playing professionally.

Because of this Mr Buttifant escaped a four year ban as he hadn’t intended to take the anabolic steroid DT. However he had intended to take a supplement containing steroids and what was found in his sample was the banned anabolic steroid DT. As the athlete is strictly responsible for what is in his body and his sample had shown the existence of an anabolic steroid he was banned for two years and not four. To an extent he was “lucky”. However he had put himself in danger of harming his health by taking the supplement being a supplement which contained steroids as well an anabolic steroid which was not disclosed. He had also suffered the side effects.
