I think this is an unscientific witch hunt and here is why: If I would have been tested by FINA or WADA three-weeks ago, I would have tested positive for "plasticisers" since three weeks ago I had the "pleasure" of getting an IV. Subsequently, how do I know that the "plasticisers" are still not there? How long do "plasticisers" last? What studies have been done? Have these studies been peered reviewed? Are all bodies the same when it come to metabolizing "plasticisers?"
FINA's logic here is that if you have "plasticsers" floating around randomly, then you are an EPO doper! Now how is that for a stretch?
Here is the story from The Independent:
FINA said it would examine samples to check for the presence of "plasticisers" – particles of plastic left over from blood bags.
