Why is the WADA prohibited substance list important?November 21, 2014
The WADA prohibited substances list is often used as a model for other sporting groups or leagues when determining what should be banned. Focusing on the WADA list when developing a supplement certification testing menu ensures that drugs banned by other sporting programs and leagues are covered as well. WADA laboratories test for Olympic and professional sports worldwide. If supplements are causing positive drugs tests, the compounds responsible are represented in the WADA statistics on adverse results. BSCG has focused its menu development on compounds responsible for adverse results as we believe those to be the most relevant to supplement contamination. The compounds we cover were responsible for more than 96% of positive drug tests in sport worldwide over the last decade.
