Some state officials and drug-testing experts are urging high school athletes to avoid some nutritional supplements because they could cause a "false positive" on a steroid test.
"The message should be: 'Don't take supplements at all.' I believe that we have to do everything we can to get all the education out there as quickly as we can before we start testing," said Jeff Kloster, associate commissioner of the Texas Education Agency.The head of the country's largest drug-testing company of college athletes estimated that 1 percent or 2 percent of Texas high school student athletes would show positive steroid test results because of dietary supplements. That could involve as many as 500 student athletes.
