Roots of Biogenesis Scandal Revealed

The reporter who wrote the expose on the Florida clinic that supplied steroids to professional athletes is reigniting the discussion with a new book, “Blood Sport: Alex Rodriguez, Biogenesis and the Quest to End Baseball's Steroid Era." In an interview on PRI’s “The World,”Miami New Times reporter Tim Elfrink explains how Tony Bosch went from being unable to get into medical school in the U.S. to owning the notorious Biogenesis anti-aging clinic and providing steroids to MLB star Alex Rodriguez and others.

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.
