Asked why he recently vetoed a bill that would have required high school coaches in California to teach about the dangers of steroids and illegal substances, the governor said it was because the bill lumped legal performance-enhancing food supplements in with illegal drugs. "It's ludicrous to forbid this for a student to take. Because if you take a protein food supplement that is made out of milk protein, out of milk, or out of soybean, or out of liver or fish that has maybe 90 percent protein, they will enhance your performance, because that's what you need in order to get strong, is protein. Why would that be outlawed? It comes from a natural source. Or to take vitamins -- Vitamin E gives you more energy, so therefore it is enhancing your performance."
