In summary, the excitement around myostatin inhibition will only continue to grow as the popularity of this approach takes off. Not only will we see the ceiling of human performance raised to a new height, but we are already seeing staggering improvements in quality of life. We may even one day soon see this approach curing disease and dramatically lengthening our existence here on earth. Certainly if/when myostatin blocking drugs ever arrive, the abuses will invariably happen.

A recent news story emerged regarding sequencing ancient human DNA found in bones thought to be about 4,000 years old. The DNA was found in Sidon, Lebanon, on the shore of the Mediterranean. 1 This area of the world corresponds to the ancient Phoenician civilization that descended from the Canaanites mentioned in the Bible.
