Great to read for someone like myself. I currently take 2iu a day and have been for more than 2 years. One of the main reasons i started taking HGH is that my immune system was low and i was getting sick with flu 2 or 3 times a year. I have hardly been sick at all over the last 2 years.

Its pretty vast. The proliferation of T&B cells,(T=Thymus B=bone marrow. The maturation of myeloid cells (precursor cells in bone marrow). Promotes a replenishment of the thymus and is a therapeutic agent in the treatment of immunodeficiencies associated with thymic atrophy. Reduces stress, Increases white blood cell count. One fascinating bit of research is GH effect on the immune system through HAART (highly active antiretroviral therapy). In a double blind study of 46 HIV infected patients using .7mg ED 40 weeks, showed and improvement in Thymic tissue size, density and output, when conventional HAART was inneffective. The effects of thymic atrophy in patients with immune deficiencies or immuno deseases is not that much different from an ageing thymus in how it fails to operate. GH has shown promise in the restoration of CD4 cells (Think immuno helper cells, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CD4). This alone shows that HGH can and will increase the strength and efficiency of your immune system. I posted this in response to someone asking if they should stop taking HGH when they have step throat or mono.

Cool yeah there's many positives of HGH butt personally I still wouldn't recommend it and people that are high risk 4 cancer or even smoke cigarettes. You should read the study on it linking lymphoma I think it was 2 HGH use. I don't think it's concrete but there are findings and cases. I know a kid from my town that is like 25 that got lymphoma out of nowhere and with no family history and I know he was running HGH for a while

I think the dosage of HGH to cause adverse effects like the promotion of free radicals to mutate cellular tissue in the lymph nodes would be retartedly high. Like, over 10iu's a day. Maybe a few vials a day lol!! Also, radiation poisoning is normally the culprit for that cancer. Live near a nuclear power plant? Wherever you live, you might want to start wearing dosimetry.

Is it? Idk i never seen a study on how much it would take but haha i live like 30 miles from one so probably safe but not if it goes kaboom lol

Ha, melt downs don't go kaboom. It's a fracture that introduces radiation to the public. But Hodgkins lymphoma is normally a onset from radiation poisoning

I'm sure there's a situation where it can blow up somehow and just spread radiation out with the blast

I'm going with No Thank you on the lymphoma.

Id have to check in to any link to Lymphoma. Its a seriously interesting drug, but 25 year olds should stay the hell away from all of this .

Some interesting information on T-cell proliferation and thymus function.
