Results Highlight Need for Product Testing

A 2016 survey of targeted sports supplements available in Australia has revealed that 19% of the products tested contained substances banned in sport, while results from two of the products indicated a potential risk to health and the likelihood of the consumer failing an anti-doping test.

The survey was conducted by international anti-doping laboratory LGC on products that did not claim to undergo regular banned substance testing, and the aim was to assess the risk to athletes and the general consumer.
