67. Not by trade
but I have 3 certifications as a personal trainer, and 3 certifications as a sports nutritionist.

What do I think about hGH? Depends on the user, including celebrities. For weight loss and muscle tone for those that aren't GH deficient, there are better ways to achieve goals, if you want to go the drug route. BUT, nobody tests for hGH. It also carries less of a stigma than a cache full of hardcore steroids. Does it help with weight loss and muscle mass? It can, sure. Are there downsides? Of course, just like breathing.

I doubt Madonna is using hGH. She really doesn't need to. She has natural genetics that support muscle, she also has a ton of money/time for trainers/diet/etc, and she could get the same "cut" result from a high dandelion root supplement for diuretic effect.
