What's in it?: At the gym, "protein fitness powder drinks" can be spiked with illegal anabolic steroids. Be careful. Otherwise, you'd do well to talk with your physician about excess body hair growth, especially if the monthly cycle isn't regular. You can have the hair removed easily by electrolysis / lasers.
