For those of you new to bodybuilding and wondering what the "bad stuff' is, here is the banned substance list from the BNBF:
"The following substances and related compounds are banned by the BNBF and their use constitutes grounds for dismissal from BNBF competitions and suspension from membership in the organization.
TESTOSTERONE (Testosterone/epitestosterone Ratio) The T/E ratio is used to measure the presence of exogenous testosterone, or illicit elevation of testosterone levels. A T/E ratio in excess of 6/1 is ruled as positive, no matter what the cause.
GROWTH HORMONES (pharmaceutical HGH, HCG and any other related compounds)
HORMONES AND PRECURSORS The use of any hormone (injectable, oral, sublingual or otherwise) for bodybuilding purposes including insulin is strictly prohibited. All hormonal precursors (DHEA, androstenedione, 19 norandrostenedione, etc.) are banned.
PRESCRIPTION DURETICS (Fen-Phen and all other prescription weight-loss substances used for bodybuilding purposes, even when physician-prescribed are banned by the BNBF)
PSYCHOMOTOR STIMULANTS MUSCLE IMPLANTS OF ANY KIND
CHEMICALS/DRUGS USED TO DECIEVE OR PASS POLYGRAPH
CLENBUTEROL AND GHB
ANY ILLEGAL OR ILLICIT BODYBUILDING DRUG OR SUBSTANCE
ANY FDA-BANNED SUBSTANCE UNLESS INDICATED
ANY IOC-BANNED SUBSTANCE UNLESS INDICATED
Note: Should the use of any substance cause an elevated T/E ratio in excess of the 6/1 limit, the athlete will be ruled as positive (failure). Likewise the presence of any banned substance in the urine (i.e. nandrolone) no matter how it arrived there is ruled as positive (failure)"
