About the Author
Mr. Georgiana was the first son and the second child of Dorothy Mae Vitti Georgiana and Frank Daniel Georgiana, Sr. His parents were “Blue Collar” workers. His father drove a truck and his mother worked in a public school cafeteria. The author was a graduate of the “School of Hard Knocks.” He lived in a neighborhood where the boys were cocky and whose parents were higher on the social and economic scale than his parents. On several occasions he had to use his fists to combat the neighborhood bully. And there was always one or two of these boys around who made life rough for Frank D. Georgiana Jr.
The author has studied exercise physiology, applied nutritional biochemistry, microbiology, endocrinology, kinesiology and performance-enhancing drugs since 1970. The impetus to research these sciences came as a result of a Ninth-grade Health and Physical Education teacher who insulted Frank in a classroom full of his peers. Surprisingly, Georgiana has no formal college degree in medicine or science, Yet he comprehends the material easily. Frank is an avid reader and collector of books and articles that deal with these subjects. He has an innate learning desire for science, particularly about these fields. One of his life’s ambitions is to study science where it can positively impact and improve a person’s health.
T/E Ratios and Steroids: The Gray Areas of Athletics is the first book ever written that speaks publicly about why and how athletes on three levels–collegiate, professional and international–are permitted to use anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs. The author is not apprehensive about telling the truth.
He interviewed the National Football League, National Collegiate Athletic Association, National Hockey League, Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association and the International Olympic Committee to discover the facts. These facts, which have been kept a secret from the public, are now revealed.
