    Muscles & Health: Overview, Theories, Development, Etc

    All Steroids (not Just Unbound/free Ones) Are Bioavailable

    One of the recurring points of contention in Peat's writings that I have not seen addressed yet is his comment on total vs. free hormones and the relevance this has for common blood tests for thyroid and sex hormones. The mainstream medical claim is that only free hormones are capable of...
