Just saw your video and I guess there has happened another translational-error: “not that he did not use it”. As far as I understood they did NOT talk about GH in this moment – they talked about GF; the growth factor. So what they meant was IGF-1. This might be because in a famous book about steroids it’s said that insiders expect one of the big guys of the 90′ to be the first one, who has taken IGF-1 because of his incredible physique. So I’m sorry for beeing that late with my comment – but for historical reasons I expect it to be very important 😉 So what he then says, “that he did not use it” just point’s out that these rumors were wrong.
