Concern over schools' elite sports teams supplement use

From Nine To Noon, 9:28 am on 11 February 2015

Graeme Steel is the Chief Executive of Drug Free Sport NZ. He is increasingly concerned by the normalisation of the use of so called sporting supplement products by sporty teenagers. A joint survey with the University of Otago School of medicine has looked at the attitudes of the first 15 rugby teams from seven schools towards the consumption of supplements. In many cases their use is not questioned and is condoned by coaches and parents.
