[ Editor's Note: Chryste Gaines, MBA, Olympic gold and bronze medal sprinter and former teammate of Marion Jones in the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, stated the following in a Dec. 22, 2008 email to in response to the IOC ruling:
"We are being unfairly punished. If the drug testing agencies cannot determine if an athlete is taking performance enhancing drugs how are the teammates supposed to know?... It negates all the family functions, church functions, and social events we missed in the name of winning an Olympic medal." ]
I cant even remember how I got to this article but im sorry the picture of Keira Knightley you used. She actually looks like a prepubescent transgender. No offense to the LGBTQ community. But she has a very long rib cage, like a man… A very wide “tree trunk” like neck, and a bulging adams apple.
The girl in the picture below her looks like a F to M adult who is just dressed “like a girl”.
I know plenty of women who are stocky or muscular, but it will never be like a mans, maybe a teenager or a small man, but on average no way. Woman store fat different then men. We have extra fat stored in our skin that helps to make us look and feel softer. Our upper body should not look like this omg.
Meanwhile, in Boston, Bruce Spiegelman, a Harvard cell biologist, has discovered two potent exercise hormones. One of them, irisin, turns metabolically inert white fat in mice into mitochondria-packed, energy-burning brown fat, and Spiegelman said that he’s seen evidence that it may also boost levels of healthy proteins in the area of the brain associated with learning and memory. He is now researching a third compound, and when I visited his lab he invited me to look through a microscope at a petri dish of sleek, round muscle fibres—a kind of mouse tartare—awaiting treatment with the chemical. They were twitching spasmodically. “It’s spontaneous,” Spiegelman said, as I recoiled. “The membranes are electrically active, and it’s almost like static on a radio. They just fire occasionally.” The experiment—effectively, exercise in a dish—is an efficient way of screening a large number of chemicals before selecting the most promising candidates for trials on intact mice.
