DOH Faulted for Inaction in Steroid Scandal

The whistleblower in the case against Biogenesis anti-aging clinic in Miami, accused of supplying steroids to Major League Baseball players, has come forward to express his disappointment with both MLB and the state Department of Health, Miami News Times reports. Porter Fischer says he supplied reams of documents to DOH investigators, but the agency closed the case against clinic owner Tony Bosch with just a citation and fine. Fischer says he is now in fear for his life.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
