"Energy and persistence conquer all things."

- Ben Franklin

Brothers Mike and Ray Mentzer both died of "natural causes" within a day of one another a little over a week ago. The premature death of these intelligent, articulate, and highly influential bodybuilders is clearly a tragedy. Nonetheless, the tragedy is compounded if none consider the likely role that years of steroid abuse played in sending two brothers to an early death by "natural causes." From their site notice the effort to explain away the brother's death as being bad luck. Condolences to the Mentzer family and friends.
