Creatine does creatine things (increases water retention in muscles). Nitric Oxide gives a pretty good pump but the pump is temporary. If it allowed you to press your workouts further you could develop more ...

At that time the mechanisms behind this was not understood. However there was statistical evidence in the form of a study with over 1 million subjects that showed that smoking and cancer were highly correlated....

It is true that our knowledge of muscle growth is limited and the statistical studies do not explain and prove the results, but this does not make the field non-scientific. It would be called pseudoscience, if ...
