Sports Supplement Dynamo Has Scary Arrest Record for Selling Hazardous Drugs as Healthy

Filed July 26th, 2013 edlieber1

Supplement designer Matt Cahill continues to put dangerous steroids on the market despite being sentenced to prison for selling dangerous weight-loss pills.

At the time he was working on a new weight-lifting supplement, Cahill was facing federal charges for mixing toxic pesticide with baking powder, stuffing it in capsules and selling it online as a weight-loss product, USA Today reported. According to Cahill, the new product had never been tested on humans until he and several others tried it themselves just prior to putting it on the market in 2004.

Cahill’s latest bestseller is called Craze. It gained mass popularity after Bodybuilding.com named it 2012’s “New Supplement of the Year.” According to USA Today, the pre-workout powder promises endless energy.  The supplement has come under increasing scrutiny over the past year. Recent lab tests conducted by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, a lab in Sweden, and industry competitors have revealed the presence of undisclosed amphetamine-like compounds.

This is not the first time one of Cahill’s products has been scrutinized. Over a 12-year career, Cahill has continued to launch new and risky products while federal regulators struggled to keep up with his changing series of companies, USA Today reported. Some people who took his steroid suffered liver damage while others that consumed the weight-loss pills ingested a chemical that had been banned from human use in the 1930s after users went blind, according to the USA Today story. Since an arrest and a prison term did not slow Cahill down, many people in the industry wonder what it will take to get his ongoing stream of dangerous substances off the market.
