I am preparing a presentation on dietary supplements which have potential to be abused or otherwise have harmful effects WHEN IMPROPERLY USED.
I have had no response from those manufacturers whom I have tried to contact to date.
This presentation will be provided to EMS providers (e.g. Paramedics, First Responders) as a way to raise awareness. These products affect human metabolism and if too much is consumed, bad things can happen.
I'm looking for anecdotal information from the field, so to speak, as companies which sponsor specific products might quietly kill threads which make their products look bad. I'm not saying that they would, but the possibility exists.
Anticipated situations are those like a child who makes 'milkshake' out of your super-concentrated powder, or a newbie who takes supplements which should not be used by someone with a medical condition like diabetes.
Specifically, I'm looking for horror stories about things like what happens when you mix two cups of creatine monohydrate into a gallon of Orange Tang and suck it down like a dying man entering the oasis. (Very dangerous. Not recommended.)
Please post your stories here. I will PM if I need to email you to confirm your information or with questions.
Thank you for your participation. Please PM if there is something unclear about my posting.
