[IP] Re: Drug Tests



 Okay, several have asked what sites I saw this on. Here is but one. I did a
general search for "False positive drug test in diabetics" there was several
ones on Yahoo search. Anyway, I copied part of it and it reads as follows...
 
 
Medications & Substances Causing False Positives

 According to a report by the Los Angeles Times New Service, a study of 161
prescription and over the counter medications showed that 65 of them produced
false positive results in the most widely administered urine test. Ronald
Siegel, a psychopharmacologist at UCLA said 'The widespread testing and reliance
on tell-tale traces of drugs in the urine is simply a panic reaction invoked
because the normal techniques for controlling drug use haven't worked very well.
The next epidemic will be testing abuse."

 Byrd Labs has in its possession an internal document from the Syva Company,
makers of the widely used EMIT test. This document, leaked by a disillusioned
company employee, lists more than 250 over-the-counter medications and
prescription drugs that can cause false positives.
