Drug Testing Information

Post  Carlos Calegari on Mon Apr 20, 2009 12:56 am

In class we talked about AIDS testing and how false positives are likely to occur. The link below relates to different types of drug tests and how they are administered. It gives people important to what employers specifically test for and the threshold tested for in specific drugs. It also shows what types of tests are more accurate than others in terms f reliability.

In addition to your link, this one lists other products that, if consumed, will result in a false positive drug test.

http://www.ipassedmydrugtest.com/false_positives.asp (**note: ignore the other links on that site....this is the only page thats pertains to this...you'll see what I mean if you decide to browse around)

It's really interesting how often this false positives occur, and how they can potentially ruin someone's chance at getting a job, etc.

(Also reminds of me of that Seinfeld episode where Elaine has to take a drug test and fails because she consumed poppy seeds)
